WELCOME TO THE RIPKE RETREAT!
Snow has arrived in Tahoe! The white stuff is falling and more is on the way! Now is the perfect time to schedule your ski Tahoe getaway. Why stay in a dark and dingy hotel room when you can have all the comforts of home in your own stunningly updated condo? The Ripke Retreat is located in the "front yard" of Heavenly! One mile and minutes from the California Base and the stateline tram and casinos.

We want to assure all our guests that SLT City Measure T will NOT go into effect until January 1, 2021. We are also hopeful Bavarian Village will be exempt from this future ban on SLT vacation rentals. So be sure to make your 2019 winter ski plans (and summer) vacation plans now.
Our guests year round experience everything Tahoe has to offer from skiing, snowboarding, cross-country, hiking, boating, biking, swimming, sight seeing, to casino gaming. Or, if you simply want to relax, you can do that surrounded by pine trees here in secluded Bavarian Village.
Our condo sleeps six comfortably on two Leesa and one Sealy Posturpedic mattresses. Our guest limit at this time is SIX. Check our photos by clicking on the link above to see all our amenities.
