Nothing Compares to 'Tahoe Castle'! Enjoy your very own large private Indoor Heated Pool with Waterfall and Fireplace, special lighting and stereo. The Castle has both a Steam Room and Sauna Room and of course a Hot Tub under the stars. Magnificent open beam Log Great Room has another fireplace and the adjoining Gourmet Kitchen is well equipped. The home has 3 bedrooms plus a Large Loft area with two extra beds and a pullout sofa which is officially recognized as a 4th bedroom, and still has room for the Pool Table and Foosball Table. 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! Deposit holds dates one year in advance or more, ask me anything at all. Feel free to ask me anything at all.
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. IF Cancel within 45 days prior to your stay, any refund (other than cleaning fee and taxes) will depend if same dates can be rented by owner to someone else. 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.

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: If anything is unclear to you 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.

  • The home is about 3500 square feet total and has three bedrooms and two bathrooms plus a large loft area which is considered a bedroom by the rules set forth from the vacation permit. The master bedroom has a king, the other two have queens, and the loft has two twin beds plus a pullout sofa that has a full size mattress. I also have a floor mattress I keep under the pool table that folds out to a full size and can be easily placed anywhere in the home. The living room has a couch and two love seats also. What determines how many a vacation home sleeps, as per county permit, is 2 for each bedroom plus add four to that total, so with 4 bedrooms my permit states 12 person limit. After you ascend the stairs either in front of the home or through the garage entry all bedrooms and bathrooms are located on the same level, only the loft area requires additional stairs to climb. The pool and even the back yard is level with that same main floor also. Convenient for anyone who is elderly. ...moreless

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 indoor private pool is heated of course, plus a steam room, sauna room, and hot tub under the stars. Other things to do: 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 although now I've added some that a guest took recently.

Other Activities: Floating in the Pool or otherwise enjoy the rare bliss of reading a book, playing games with the group, or of course doing absolutely nothing.

Golf: See why Tiger Woods chose to have a home here in Tahoe. The thin air allows the ball to really take off. There are plenty of nice golf courses here and a driving range and one course is 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 nice 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!! Ask me anything

 

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 (South Lake Tahoe, CA, USA):
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!
