About Wendy & Erik Hvolboll
We love to ski, hike and enjoy all that Lake Tahoe offers. Its beauty both summer and winter, is unsurpassed. We feel in love with this cabin and its fantastic location! It is the perfect place for us, close to everything, but...away from it all! Hike out our back door, or just kick it and enjoy the views and mountain air. Picture yourself Surrounded by forest land, the stillness of the forest, the songs of the birds, and whistling of the trees. The Tall Tree Lodge is hidden in this special area, our hidden jewel. CLOSE TO EVERYTHING, BUT AWAY FROM IT ALL!
Wendy & Erik Hvolboll purchased this House in 2010
Why Wendy & Erik Hvolboll chose South Lake Tahoe
We chose this cabin, and named it "Tall Tree Lodge" because of its awesome location and the majestic trees that surround us. Lay in your hammock and gaze up at all their glory. That is what we first fell in love with, and you will too. You are close to everything, yet away from it all. The cabin is just the icing on the cake, perfect for our family of four, and great when we want to have lots of friends up. Space enough for all. We hope you will enjoy it here as much as we do. We pride ourselves in making our home yours, and our goal is a stress free vacation that you will want to return again and again.
What makes this House unique
During the winter, the back is your private winter wonderland, complete with sled hill. Enjoy sitting in your hot tub watching the snowflakes gracefully dance down. Summer time, hike up the hill behind the cabin, play a game of horse shoes, bocci ball or mountain croquet. Sit and enjoy the stillness, nobody to disturb your peace. Hike up the hill to the "beach" It is a wide open space with beach like sand, and beautiful. Kids can frolic around on the rocks. Feel like taking a dip,or enjoying the beach, the water is a close distance down Ski Run. Or, take a bike and ride on the bike trail to the lake, less then a mile away! **BIG SAVINGS....Stay 6 nights and get 7TH FREE!! (except Holidays)

Fantastic House, Location and Hosts
Wendy and Eric were great hosts who were extremely responsive throughout the process, had a great setup for us upon our arrival and answered all of our questions beforehand. We got a ton of snow during the visit, but the house was well equipped to handle it which ended up being very important.
I would recommend the house to anyone considering a visit. Truly a beautiful house and location.
Convenient, cozy, and spacious base camp with all the necessities
Just finished an 8 day stay at the "Tall Tree Lodge" in South Lake Tahoe, reuniting family and friends for a great week of skiing and spending time together. This property was fantastic for our needs - spacious living/dining areas with an awesome gas fireplace, easy-to-use TV, beautiful (and long) dining table, as well as a kitchen with plenty of gadgets, utensils, pots/pans, plates, mugs, etc to accommodate a large group. The breakfast table/nook is a great touch and allowed us to keep the chefs company as well as provided a perfect place to relax. The WiFi was easy to use, the hottub was pristine and functioned perfectly, and the bedrooms and bathrooms were comfy with plenty of towels, hot water, and were stocked with extra soaps/shampoo/conditioner, as well as paper products. There was a HE washer with large capacity and two dryers as well. The property is quite large, with a lovely outdoor firepit (too much snow for us to use this time), as well as a gazebo sitting area out front. The California Base of Heavenly was an 8-10 min walk for us, cutting through the wooded end of the street onto a main thoroughfare. Neighborhood is quiet and convenient; the front door access requires climbing a fair number of steps so would be cautious if you have impaired mobility or need handicap accessibility. The garage was plenty big for two vehicles; parking is challenging beyond the dedicated two car garage (and is challenging all over South Lake Tahoe...), but the owners were very helpful with ideas and support. Communication couldn't have been better - Erik and Wendy both were easy to reach, responsive by call, text, or email, and were very informative. Would definitely stay here again!
Absolutely no complaints, I would come back in a heartbeat.
Wendy and Erik are great hosts. They have a spacious and beautiful home. The family loved it and will be coming back.
We have stayed here twice and loved it every time.
Exactly what We Expected
Couldn't have asked for a better place, area , and complete package
We love to share all that we have, from bikes to beach chairs, beach towels, blankets, ice chest and more. Have fun with horse shoes, bocci ball, sledding, and to top off your long day, outdoor fire pit *(to be used in designated area)* So come enjoy the beauty of Lake Tahoe.
