About Joe & Vikki Marceau

This cabin was purchased in 2009 by 3 sisters. The cabin is for family gatherings throughout the year. Our family has many snowboarders and skiers as well as everyone's love of the beaches in Lake Tahoe. We look forward to creating many happy memories at this home. I know your family will enjoy it as much as we do.

Joe & Vikki Marceau purchased this house in 2009

Why Joe & Vikki Marceau chose Bijou Pines

Location, Location, Location - We wanted something that was close to the lake but allowed us to be close to restaurants and shopping. The Bijou neighborhood gives us all that and more. This is a wonderful neighborhood to take long walks or hop on the bike trail across the street. Having the Bus/Shuttle service right down the street you can get almost anywhere in town. Use of the community center is a major bonus for adults and kids - a year round facility

What makes this house unique

Back to our Location: The Beach (down the street) , skiing (Heavenly is 1.5 miles) , biking (the trail is across the street) , Casino & downtown 2.0 miles, pools & Ice Skating (across the street), Tennis everything is right in the neighborhood. El Dorado Beach at the end of our street is beautiful and hosts the summer concert series. Community center is right down the street. Stateline casino's are 2.0 miles. Shopping is just around the corner - you cannot beat this location or our great pricing. Paypal payment is available for credit card users. WI-FI installed. Uber available in South Lake Tahoe as well so very easy to get around.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your home couldn't have been more accommodating. It was the perfect size the perfect location and perfect comfort for our family. The boys had a great time doing what 15 year olds do where they walked to everything. We stay in this particular area almost every time we come for the fourth but this was by far the best. You weren't kidding when you said pack lightly!!!! I usually try to bring everything but the kitchen sink when we travel but your home provided so much it was so refreshing. Thank you so much for allowing strangers to enjoy your warm comfy home.

Vikki's place is the best

  • 5 of 5

This has become an annual trip for my family and we couldn't imagine going anywhere else. Vikki goes above and beyond to make everything smooth and easy. House has everything you need and even a few extras like travel toiletries. Perfect location in a nice quiet residential neighborhood but close to the lake, ski resorts, shopping, and food. This is one of those places you want to give a bad review so no one else finds out about it...but I won't :-) already looking forward to next year!

Great cabin.....Great location!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great cabin for a family get away. I arrived very late on Thursday and was pleasantly surprised to find that the cabin came stocked with coffee, pancakes, toiletries, etc...

The cabin is located less that 10 minutes from Heavenly Ski Resort and the Stateline casinos.

Great Cabin!!

From Santa Cruz to South Lake Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the cabin. It was just three of us, my husband, me and our almost 1 year old daughter. It was a home away from home, very comfortable and close to everything we wanted to do. We left relaxed and happy! Thanks Vikki.

South Lake Tahoe Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed many times at Rae's Family cabin over the years and now it is a family tradition of sorts. We love to sit on the patio and just take in the fresh air and pines. You can walk to the lake and to the park, ice skating, playground, baseball fields etc... and a very close drive to everything else. The owners are very thoughtful and think of everything you would need to make your stay comfortable. We will be coming back. It is one of the best kept secrets in the Lake Tahoe sssshhhhhh!!!! Dave and family
