Historic Squaw Valley Ski Cabin - Lake Tahoe Vacation Rentals. Live Like a Local Vacations. Squaw Valley Vacation Rentals.
SQUAW VALLEY LOCATION:
Squaw Valley USA, Olympic Valley, North Shore Lake Tahoe, Tahoe City, Truckee, California, USA
Squaw Valley, officially named Olympic Valley since the 1960 Olympic Winter games, is located on the pristine North Shore of Lake Tahoe, just off Highway 89, 2 minutes to Squaw Valley Lifts, about 13 minutes from Truckee, 5 minutes from Alpine Meadows, 25 minutes from NorthStar and about 10 minutes from Tahoe City by the lake.
THE HISTORIC PALISADES SKI CABIN LOCATION:
Our Tahoe Vacation Rental is located in walking distance to the Squaw Valley Ski Lifts, the Squaw Valley Village and various hiking and biking trails in the valley. Our sunny Tahoe Vacation Rental has beautiful mountain and valley views and is nestled within a quiet residential neighborhood. The historic Palisades Ski Cabin was one of the first vacation homes built by Wayne Poulsen, the visionary, who recognized Squaw Valley's potential as a Ski Resort in the early 1930's and who was the original founder of the Squaw Valley Ski Resort. The Palisades Ski Cabin was built in 1952 and was completely remodeled in 2008.
The recent renovation reserved the character of the 1952 cabin while creating a sustainable luxury vacation rental. Complying with LEED building principles, the original building was restored to prevent unnecessary material waste and destruction of the environment. Today, the Palisades Ski Cabin is restored beyond its original beauty, with energy efficient floor heating, luxurious bathrooms and sun flooded living areas.
Master Bedroom Suite:
Our mountain cabin features a spacious and stylish master bedroom suite. The master bedroom has vaulted ceilings, big sun exposed windows and French doors leading to a secluded garden patio. A comfortable king size four poster bed assures restful sleep and relaxation after a full day in the outdoors. Our elegant master bathroom has an over-sized whirlpool soaking tub, a beautiful spa shower and a European style bidet.
Mountain View Bedroom:
The cozy mountain-view bedroom has a queen size bed, vaulted ceilings and French doors leading to a private and sunny deck with mountain and valley views.
The Sleeping Loft:
The sleeping loft has two alcove twin beds in true cabin style. Over-sized French doors open to a European style balcony with full views of the Squaw Valley Mountains and the Mountain-Run ski slope.
The gourmet kitchen has granite counter tops and state of the art cooking utensils. French doors open to a beautiful outside deck and the garden. The dining room features an authentic Tahoe dining table and mountain style chandeliers for gourmet dining and family bonding. The sun flooded living room invites our guests to linger at any time of the day. Open and spacious, it is the perfect place to relax and socialize. A custom made Chandelier illuminates the cabin, providing elegance and style. Entering the cabin, our guests will be welcomed into our cozy mud-room with heated floors where all shoes, coats and outdoors attire can be kept.
The Palisades Ski Cabin features a two car garage with a covered access to the cabin.

The front portion of this cabin has been very nicely redone. Then you see the kitchen,no photos on web site, and there is only a range top, no oven, and one person maybe 2 in the kitchen can fit. We arrived with ski meals to cook with no oven ! Not to mention no room for a house full of people to even make coffee. The master bedroom is gorgeous. The other two ? one is open to the living room as a loft with no privacy & the 3rd is located off the loft so you have to access that bedroom through the loft. We could only access half of the garage because the owners have the other half full of equipment which made it so we could not put our car in ! so many other places to rent for that kind of money.

Initial impression of property was overwhelmingly positive as European luxury styling greets you. Quality appliances, modern decor, and superb finishing touches make this cabin a joy to appreciate. Perfect party house for mixed group of 4-8 guests. Sauna was a blast for our group. Takes about 5 minutes to reach lift ticket office from cabin by car.

I stayed for one week with my girlfriend at the palisades cabin and it was hard to leave again! Everything was well maintained and perfectly clean in the house. The interior is of highest standard and the furniture seems new. However you can still feel the history of this ancient house which makes a wonderful synergie. When we arrived we found a pretty set up in the bathrooms with all the towls in a precise fold and it seemd so tidy that we could have been the first visitors ever! Please forward our congratulations to your cleaning staff... Thanks for many great little details. The phenomenal kitchen utilities and the well maintained bbq on the deck tempted us to stay in for most dinners and cook ourselves, although it is only a very short walk to the restaurants of Squaw Valley. We loved the ambience, the fresh air, but above all the house itself! We used the daytime to go canoeing and wakeboarding on the lake, swimming in the river and hiking on the mountain. The nearby shops in Tahoe city allowed us to get everything we needed for fantastic dinners at the cabin. We are allready planning our next visit and can fully recomend this property to anyone that loves high standards and beautiful ambience.

At the End of July 2010, my husband and I spent some days at the Historic Palisades Cabin. When we entered the lodge, we were overwhelmed by the architecture and interior of this perfect cabin. We fell immediately in love with the combination of the old and modern style and enjoyed our stay there every moment. For us, the summer at Lake Tahoe was outstanding and even worth the trip (we flew in from Germany!) We swam, hiked, canoed and sailed! In the evenings, we sat outside on the deck, having a good glass of wine and found rest after the days sportive activities. We will come back!
