North Tahoe Heaven

Our internet friendly, non-smoking mountain home has wonderful Tahoe ambience: old-style heavy-beamed architecture, knotty pine interior, two big decks and a wall of glass that looks out through a forest of pines to the lake. Antiques, artifacts of mountain living, lodge-style furniture, and beautiful prints and paintings all add to the feeling that you have arrived at a better place.

With a 40 foot great room, our Heaven is completely comfortable for groups of ten. At the same time, single couples have also told us how enjoyable it is to spend time in such a spacious environment. Moreover, our rates are low because we were fortunate enough to buy this house years ago, before Tahoe real estate prices tripled.

Summer or winter, activities are close at hand. Walk to the lake, or to our gorgeous homeowner’s club with pool, volleyball court and tennis courts. One block up are trailheads for hiking or mountain biking into the national forest. Seven ski areas, multiple golf courses, boating, parasailing and Nevada gambling are all just a short -- and breathtaking -- drive away. At night, snuggle up to fireplace (wood provided, naturally) or walk outside and marvel at the Milky Way, the blazing moon and shooting stars.

Children will spend hours in our tree fort, complete with sliding pole and its own deck! Five blocks up from Highway 28, we’re free of vehicle noise. Few cars come up our road, and children can play safely to their heart's content. Sleds and saucers, legos, toys and games can provide day-long children’s entertainment.

While brimming with old Tahoe charm, our home has every modern amenity. High speed wireless internet service is available. The kitchen is fully out-fitted, and the appliances are new. Three TV's including a flat-screen HD TV, VCRs and DVD players are available for your entertainment. A washer and dryer are on site. A library of children's videos is available for your use. Our four bedrooms provide two queen and six single beds, with a queen sleeper sofa available in the great room. Linens are provided, and out on deck our Weber gas grill is ready to cook up your favorite meals.

So leave those work boots behind, and come to Heaven. Come up to sunny days, clean mountain air, and the freedom to do nothing more than enjoy the thrill of being at Tahoe.

About Robert Schladale

Hi, I am a writer and wood worker in Auburn California.

Robert Schladale purchased this house in 1992

Why Robert Schladale chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

We bought this house because the living area has great old Tahoe style, lots of windows and a quiet, private location. It's only one block to many hiking trails, and a block in the other direction to the pool. Skiing and water sports are nearby, and Nevada casinos are only 3 miles away.

What makes this house unique

The living area upstairs is completely open with a vaulted ceiling supported by huge solid pine beams. It's a great space to be in whether we have lots of visitors or I'm there by myself.

Guestbook comments from the owner


We had a fabulous time this past weekend staying at your house. The two feet of fresh powder turned everything into wonderland, probably the prettiest I've ever seen Tahoe. The kids loved playing in the snow and so did the adults. It was truly magical. You have a fantastic property, thanks for renting it out to us. I hope we left everything in good shape.

Take care,

Wonderful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful cabin! Rob was so easy to work with and made the experience that much better. The home was extremely clean and organized. We loved the homey cabin feel and the kids enjoyed playing out back in the tree house and swing. We can't wait to go back again when we visit Tahoe next time!

Annual Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

After 14 years I believe, this cabin has become our home-away-from-home location. Each summer, we all plan one week of our vacation to meet and bring Children/Grandchildren to this wonderful spot. Close to the beach (Lake), private swimming pool, nature, miniature golf, great restaurants, and card clubs for the adults. The house amenities are excellent, house is always clean, and owners are a joy to work with. The configuration of the house itself is excellent. Bedrooms are downstairs with the large family room, large dinner table, and fabulous deck upstairs. Speaking of deck...WONDERFUL place to start your day in the morning and read a book in the evening; a perfect place to "veg out". As we are leaving, after our Family week in paradise, we all plan on the week that we will come back the following summer. We are truly blessed to have found this location, those many years ago!!

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Rob was great to work with and the house was perfect for our family vacation in Tahoe! We've stayed in Tahoe before, but this home definitely gave a more "cabin-y" feeling, which the kids loved. Nestled in a small community in a well forested area, which made for a quick walk to areas great for exploration. The tree house was well used by the kids. The location was perfect! Close to so many beaches, including Tahoe Vista, Kings Beach (and the dog friendly Coons Landing at Kings Beach), and even Sand Harbor beach (our families favorite). Squaw Valley is not a far drive, either. Plenty of restaurants nearby as well as a Safeway for all your grocery shopping. The house was very clean, lots of extra bedding and had plenty of room for our family of 8. The kids are already asking when we can come back!

Great family house!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for 9 of us including 4 kids. Having all of the bedrooms together was great and allowed the adults to hang out after the kids went to bed with no fear of waking anyone. The rooms aren't huge but we were able to squeeze portable cribs into both of the twin rooms. The kitchen was well stocked and we enjoyed sitting at the counter as well as the large dining room table (sat 9 people easily with the extensions) There is plenty of seating in the great room and the kids loved having toys there. The yard was a perfect spot for the kids to play in the snow and we enjoyed the trails and neighborhood around the house. The internet also worked really well which is always a bonus in Tahoe! It's always hard to tell how child-friendly a house is online but this worked well and we would not hesitate to stay here again.

Good Family Time

  • 5 of 5

An extended family of ten adults and children used the house for a wonderful summer week at Lake Tahoe. The large top level room contained the living area, dining area and kitchen and was just super. It has lots of glass, deck access and a high ceiling. This large space gave the whole family opportunity to be together while meals were prepared and served, spending time playing games or reading, cleaning up in the evening and any other activity. The lower level bedrooms are not large but adequate. The cleanliness of the entire house was notable. The property location is excellent and convenient to Safeway and nearby beaches. We enjoyed the local swim facility. The children had a great time with the use of the tree-house.

Great hiking trails, including access to the Tahoe Rim Trail, are accessible from our house - no need to drive to a trail head. In summer, our pool and tennis courts are within walking distance and the closest beach is about one miles away. In winter, snow sledding can be done in our yard or hills nearby. Northstar, Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley ski areas are all within an easy, scenic drive.
