About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Tahoe Tree House has been professionally managed and maintained for 10+ years. It's a renters' favorite - one of their most popular properties with high repeats.

What's the big benefit of 'professionally managed?' NO personal effects of the owner. Towels folded decoratively, soap in the soap dishes, extra hot tub towels....The house is truly yours. Most VRBO houses feel like the owner still lives there (cluttered with personal pictures and stuff) or has never overnighted there (no amenities). Try us, you'll see the difference.


Welcome to Tahoe Tree House which overlooks mature pines and firs from 3 outdoor decks or through gorgeous cathedral windows. NEW SPA! Homeowner remodeled this warm, bright home to include modern amenities without sacrificing the classic Tahoe vacation feel-big log ceiling beams, vaulted ceilings, cozy wood burning stove, 3 redwood decks and hot tub. Features new granite counter tops and cherry cabinets in kitchen and bathrooms, sunny redwood decks and a 2nd floor open floor plan where the kitchen, living room and dining room form a delightful great room, perfect for entertaining. Decks at either end of the upstairs bring the outside in. Simmons Beautyrest Pillowtop Mattresses in bedrooms. The master bedroom and two other bedrooms are all on the first floor, all with queen beds and professionally furnished. Doors from two bedrooms open out to hot tub deck complete with hot tub towels. There's cable TV, DVD/CD player, and stereo upstairs with a second TV in the master bedroom. High speed wireless Internet access keeps you connected to work or play. Conveniently situated 4 miles south of Tahoe City with easy access to Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley ski resorts or Homewood. Located just 1 block away from Paige Meadows and Tahoe National Forest--great for hiking, biking, cross country skiing or snow shoeing without ever getting into your car.

Here are ACTUAL renters' comments, taken from the website of the professional rental agent we used for 10+ years to manage the property (see Reviews link for most recent):


We love the Treehouse and have returned several times (and will again). It is clean, spacious and very welcoming. We feel we have come home as soon as we walk through the front door. The property location, within easy reach of Alpine, Squaw, Northstar and Homewood is ideal for keen skiers such as ourselves. We were very appreciative of the WiFi although a bit disappointed that it stopped working after a few days as we were using it (via Skype) to keep in touch with our children, whom we had left at home for the first time. Happily they don't appear to have had any wild parties while we were away! We love Tahoe AND the Treehouse! Thank you.


First I want to thank you for keeping the cabin in top condition so we, renters, can enjoy it in full. The cabin is beautiful and was ready to be enjoyed. Also you were very helpful when I went to your office to request some information and when I called to request a later checkout time.

The only issue we notice with the cabin is that the garage door could not be opened automatically, because the chain was not engaging the door. Thanks again


We got in during the first snow storm of the season. BRING CHAINS or have a really good four wheel drive - the house is up a few hills. Great house, had everything that we needed. The new oven was a little temperamental, but other than that - everything was wonderful!


We were very pleased with how accommodating the rental company was with changing houses. The first house we rented was not at all what we were expecting and had a horrible odor from the kitchen disposal. The staff allowed us to switch to Tahoe Tree House, a place we had rented before. What a difference! It's a nice layout and roomy. The hot tub is awesome and the kitchen is great to cook in. It's close to everything and the roads are well plowed. Great place to stay and we'll be back.

About The Owner

We fell in love with Tahoe years ago and have been coming up to the Tree House for years from the Bay Area where we live. It’s a perfect getaway, winter or summer. We have had excellent experiences with renters and are happy to share our home with you.

The Owner purchased this house in 1991

Why The Owner chose Tahoe City

We rented all over the Tahoe area before buying Tahoe Tree House. It's the best of all worlds: 1. Close to the lake (wide open views as you drive to the house) without having to pay lake front prices 2. Hiking and cross country skiing 2 minutes away - you never have to get into your car, if you don't want to! 3. Equal access to multiple ski areas - Squaw and Alpine just west 6 miles, Homewood south 5 miles. 4. Locals' restaurant with killer lakeside location just down the hill

What makes this house unique

One of our renters made this recommendation: Great ski service Several of my friends took advantage of the Black Tie Skis delivery service. These guys were amazing! They showed up at the house with a van full of tons of high performance equipment and then fit you on the spot. They then made arrangements to meet us at the ski resort on the last day to pick up our stuff. Fantastic!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know how much we’ve enjoyed the Tree House. It’s been a wonderful week so far - the place is perfect. We love the location near paige meadows and I was very pleased to find a well equipped kitchen :)

Great Location...Very Nice House

  • 4 of 5

Great spot. Would have given it 5 stars except for very minor issues. The positives: beautiful views of the forest off back deck, easy drive down the street to market and restaurant. Also quick to Tahoe City and more to do. Plus, walking trails within 5 minutes of house. Nice layout, kitchen, outdoor grill...everything you need. Small negatives: It was 85 degrees each day and the upstairs living area gets very warm. Only two small fans and would recommend more with one in each bedroom. The only real solution to the sun-filled upper living area would be shades to cover the expansive floor to ceiling windows. I'm sure it's great in winter! But pretty uncomfortable on a warm summer, we just got out of there and enjoyed Lake Tahoe! Owner was very easy to work with as well. Highly recommend.

Perfectly Peaceful, exactly what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

I booked our stay at the Tahoe Tree House for a weekend getaway with my best girl friends. We pulled up to the house and were instantly in awe. My favorite flowers (lupines) surround the house, and we could tell from the first moment that we would be happy here. The house is comfortable and cozy. We spent a lot of our weekend relaxing in the living room, taking in the fresh mountain air while drinking tea on the patios, and soaking in the hot tub. The bedrooms are incredibly comfortable. While I usually have a challenging time sleeping on vacation, this was not the case here. The house is a few minutes drive away from the lake, with easy access to Tahoe City, but also the south side of Tahoe and north into Truckee. It was a wonderful central location for our wine tasting, horseback riding, Emerald Bay adventures, and hiking. All of us were very sad to see our time in the Tahoe Tree House come to an end. There were definitely conversations about when we could make a return trip happen. Thank you to Lake Tahoe and the hosts of this beautiful home. It was a weekend for the books!

Beautiful home in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

The home was just as described. Ann, the owner, was responsive and wanted to make sure we were comfortable. I only wish we had found the deck furniture (stored in the garage) sooner so I could drink my coffee on the deck every morning.

Perfect size for family of 4. Quiet environment, clean, updated appliances and hot tub.

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay! Perfect size for family of 4, with two teenagers. Location was ideal for us outside tahoe city between homewood, alpine, and squaw. New stainless appliances and new hot tub. Kitchen was well stocked to make cooking easy. Ample bathrooms and great layout. There was no view of the lake but we knew that ahead of the time and spent most of the week staring at it off the slopes anyway. Plus, we enjoyed the privacy of the lot and trees. Only con that we can think of is that the shades did not keep light out in the morning so be prepared to get up and go! Prompt and courteous communication from Ann was also was a great help.

Amazing home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this property was really fun! The home had a very cozy feel to it. There are three balconies and all the living space is downstairs. The Jacuzzi was very clean and worked well. All the appliances were operational as well. The best part of this property is the location. You can enjoy morning walks in the neighborhood and very lake access.

One thing I want to mention is that the pictures gave it a bigger feel but dont mistake this for a small house. It fits 6 people very comfortably.

Our second stay at this property and we still love it.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property, beautiful neighbourhood and close to Tahoe City, Squaw and Alpine Meadows. Pretty hike through the woods nearby and the house even has a hot tub to help soothe aging limbs. Hopefully we will return.
