About Scott and Patti Slaga

We are originally from Chicago, relocated to San Diego for the fantastic year round weather, ocean activities and beaches. We love Lake Tahoe and have been avid fans since 1991 for the beautiful clear lakes, skiing/snowboarding, fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding, hiking, biking and local trails. In 2004 we purchased our home and it is our treasure! You will enjoy its warm and inviting feeling.

Why Scott and Patti Slaga chose Upper Kingsbury

We chose this property for the quiet family friendly neighborhood, the spacious lot, the close proximity to the trails, the easy access to the casinos, Heavenly Village, shopping and the lake. We love the mountains, numerous lakes, the many outdoor activities, and the closeness to San Francisco. We live in San Diego for the beaches and year round weather. Lake Tahoe is the perfect compliment!

What makes this house unique

Our house is in a magical location. It is located near the top of the Kingsbury Grade, surrounded by beautiful forest and excellent hiking trails. It is 4.3 miles to the lake, casinos, Edgewood Golf course and Heavenly's Village; 2.3 miles to Heavenly's Boulder Lodge and 3.2 miles to the Stagecoach Lodge for skiing and snowboarding in the winter; and hiking and mountain biking in the summer. The Tahoe Rim Trail head is 1/2 block from our house, awesome for hiking and biking in the summer and is dog-friendly. Our home sits on a wonderful acre lot; the backyard is fenced for the safety of children and pets with lots of space to run and offers shade from the 100-200ft trees. In the winter the yard offers sledding and snowman making. The big deck lets you enjoy dining outside, relaxing in the sun, and the enjoyment of the spa. We love to cook so the 5-burner gas top, double kitchen sinks, the double convection wall ovens, 50lb ice maker, quiet dishwasher and all the plates, pots and pans will help you create a feast!

The location was perfect for our group of 11! Close to everything, yet away from all the people! We found a few great places to eat on kingsbury grade that were so good and did not have all the people! Patti and Scott were the best to work with! If you can get this house reserved, don't hesitate! It's all that we wanted and more!!!

Absolutely perfect for a family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We were so very pleased with the beautiful home and the kindness of Scott and Patti. Prior to our trip, they were very helpful when we had questions and offered many ideas that we could do in the Lake Tahoe area. They have been extremely gracious. The home was spacious for our family and the hiking close by was great. We could not have asked for a better time!

Patty and Scott thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using VRBO, so we weren't sure what to expect. Pleasantly surprised! Loved the things they had in the home for renters to use- ie:Touch Tunes, Hot Tub, Big Screen, washer and dryer, ice maker. If they have other locations, would be interested in finding out where.
