Located just about 5 miles to either the Lake or to the Casinos or Heavenly Ski Resort, on a quiet cul-de-sac with empty wooded lots on either side for optimum privacy. TV in every bedroom plus Living room, plenty of cable stations plus high speed wireless Internet. The kitchen is well equipped for a feast preparation and has a wine cooler. Why stay in just any old house when you can stay in a Castle? THE MOST popular vacation rental in Lake Tahoe! Come see why Nothing Else Compares!

Please note: Extreme Demand for this home, I will accept reservation with deposit a year or more in advance, just ask.
[Eldorado County Rental Permit #1034]
Clarify Rates:
You may hold dates if 90 days in advance or more with only a $500 deposit. If within 90 days full payment is due to secure reservation (exception Christmas and New Year Weeks payment due 6 months prior). Cancel prior to 90 days before your dates will only incur a 3% cancellation fee of the deposit amount, so will cost you just $15. Therefore reserving ahead is highly recommended, even a year or so in advance. This not only gets you the dates you want but also locks in the price which as you can tell from my calendar with demand so high, it is very likely rates may go up. There are very few homes with a pool and other comparable amenities for rent in Tahoe and ALL that I have found have rental costs considerably higher then my home.
All details will be emailed to you in my standard contract once you've chosen dates, and will clearly state all policies and fees. You are still under no obligation, nor am I, until you return it signed and complete whatever payment is due. Ask me Anything at all.
House History: Well people ask so here is. House built in 2000 and designed as a luxury vacation rental with amenities like no other. The designer had it right because what sets this house aside from so many other choices are the unique amenities. I bought the house in 2004 and still had guests on the calendar so I gave it a try. The house has always rented more often, far above other houses. When I decided to no longer use a management agency in late 2007 I forwarded the savings on to the guests. The house has since booked much more often than ever despite the economy. Everyone Loves the home, thousands of guests have stayed here! Pricing compares to houses similar in size but without the amenities. So why stay in just any house when you can stay in a 'Castle'? My best deals are if last minute, meaning within 7 days, when if you do not see dates booked then I will discount and make you a great deal! These deals are rare though so if you want your choice of dates plan well ahead. Always just ask me anything.
Availability Calendar: I don't know why but this website chooses to display confusing angle shaded calendar dates that make it difficult to know if some nights are rented or not. Easiest thing to do is simply contact me and I'll always make everything perfectly clear, don't be shy.
All terms stated in rental contract supercede any terms from anything stated elsewhere. Websites limit my input.

Notes:

Exception always to minimum nights is when fewer nights remain between two reservations. If 2, 3, or 4 nights are available you must take all that remain in that case. Any Legal Holiday Period may have premium pricing , just ask for quote. For example I add $200 to total rent for stay which includes July 4th. If rates are not posted ask first, I do not control the quote system completely here and it may be inaccurate, especially if rates are not posted that far in advance. The quote may return at the lowest yearly rate and not be accurate. Send me an email regarding Pets so I may consider.

Car: Recommended

This home is close to the Lake and all local activities. About a 5 mile drive will get you to Lake or Casinos or Heavenly Ski Resort. There is so much to do year round, hiking biking skiing, boating, kayaking, snow shoeing, sledding. There is so many links online to endless things to do and so many things you can rent if you don't have it, makes it an easy place to fly in and out. The mountain air is so fresh and the scenery is spectacular. Of course if you just want to relax at the home you couldn't have chosen a better equipped paradise! The pool is heated of course, steam, sauna, hot tub, play some pool or foosball, or enjoy a feast with friends and family. I manage my home myself and eliminate the management company fees so the cost now is very comparable to plenty of houses here or even less expensive and yet nothing compares! Thousands of guests have stayed here since 2001. I've yet to have anyone who was not impressed. I'm always told how photos don't do it justice.

Other Activities: Floating in the Pool

Golf: See why Tiger Woods chose to have a home here in Tahoe. (edited: well, one reason anyhow). The thin air allows the ball to really take off. There are plenty of nice golf courses here and a driving range and course are only about 2 miles from this home.

Ski: This home is only about 5 miles to Heavenly Ski Resort which offers great slopes and the best views of the Lake below. Of course you can drive to several other resorts but what is REALLY noce is after a long day on the slopes you can rejuvinate in the steam or sauna rooms, swimming pool or hot tub. Another benefit...after a big snow fall many people are 'snowed in' to a rental for a day. This is one home you won't have to sit around and watch TV all day. The Castle is a paradise within a Paradise!!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I'm semi-retired and manage this home all myself. I'm devoted to my guests and pay attention to detail. I understand your vacation time is valuable and memories made with family and friends are precious. I'm happy and proud to have enabled many hundreds of folks to enjoy 'The Castle' for years now and look forward to many more.

Why the Owner Chose Pioneer Trail:
Well the only other homes I have found with an indoor private pool and comparable amenities have been priced quite a bit higher. I know that management expense adds to the price. Since I do it all I keep the prices at a very fair value. One can expect to pay the same for a lot of homes of similar size...but without a pool, steam and sauna. So why stay in a regular house when you can enjoy a Castle?!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I know packing and organizing and traveling isn't always that fun. But when you find yourself floating around, listening to your favorite music, waterfall and fireplace going...you'll KNOW you're on vacation!
