Year Purchased: 1993
About: My wife and I spent our honeymoon in Tahoe in 1974 and we started renting homes in summer and winter. We soon realized it was time for us to purchase our own vacation home in the area we have made our second home. In 1978 we purchased an A-frame cabin and traded it in for a condo in Bavarian Village 1993. We have put our 'heart and soul' into making the Ripke Condo just like home. You will love our extra features like our 'cool' nite lights, small hooks for hanging your car keys, and a convenient dining table TV remote. We even installed an emergency 'power failure' light you will see above the hallway entrance. Latest addition is our hotel 'security safe' found in our MB for storing your valuables. Our valet clothing stands in each bedroom are also convenient for your wardrobe selection. Enjoy our complimentary hot chocolate as you sit by the fire in our spacious living room. We are in our condo at least twice per year to make sure you enjoy your stay as much as we do. Please let us know if you have any suggestions to make the Ripke Condo even better.
Why Heavenly Valley:
We wanted to be close to all area attractions yet we wanted to feel like we were not stuck in a casino hotel room. Our condo in Bavarian Village is just blocks from highway 50 and Ski Run Blvd. and one mile from the casinos and Heavenly skiing. We are also on flat ground and the South Lake Tahoe bike path runs right by the complex entrance. We enjoy riding our bikes to breakfast at our favorite local restaurants. We boast a rental agency that looks after our condo. We love our location in the middle of a grove of pine trees and love to look up at them while we are enjoying the pool or soaking in the hot tub. We also love to serve dinner outside on our balcony so we can smell the pine-scented fresh air and listen to the call of the Blue Jays. In winter save yourself the drive and catch the Heavenly Shuttle at the complex entrance.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our MB window view of Heavenly is breathtaking! We are only one of only two condos that have a large picture window in our MB! We also take pride in our three room remodels, kitchen, and both baths. Our condo features pine cabinets trimmed in forest green. We placed a dining table out on our balcony and enjoy some of our meals outside during warm summer nights. When the weather turns cold we have plenty of table games or enjoy movies on our 46' HD TV. For longer stays the on-site laundry really comes in handy. Unique to Bavarian Village is their wonderful, spacious heated pool (in season) and 8-person, year round hot tub. Relax and look up in into the blue skies framed by tall green pines. You can't do that at stateline where you're stuck in a hotel room fighting the crowds. Our fully-furnished kitchen is perfect for eating in or preparing snacks for day trips.
