Pineland House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 11-13)

Discover your perfect FAMILY GETAWAY when you vacation at Lippe Lodge! Conveniently located on the West Shore, you have easy access to 4 downhill ski mountains, several cross-country ski trails and sledding hills - all within 5 - 30 minutes. With only a 10-minute walk to the beach and local restaurants and a 2-mile drive to Tahoe City (great bike ride!), our home is easy to find in the mountain-town neighborhood of Pineland and it's easy to get to when everything is covered in snow. For golf lovers, rejoice in knowing you're just minutes away from several championship golf courses. Located super close to Sunnyside Resort.

An unexpected EXTRA (and not found in just any vacation home) is our GAME ROOM. Located on the Upper Level, the inviting, comfortable Game Room is equipped with a full-size pool table, a bistro table & stools, 2 over-stuffed sofas, a large flat screen TV with DVD player, DVD's, board games, play area, a full bathroom and a deck at each end. This is the perfect gathering spot after a big day of skiing or snowboarding or after a full day at the beach or on the boat!

The FAMILY ROOM is on the Lower Level and is directly adjacent to the Kitchen and Dining Room. The expansive sectional sofa surrounds the Family Room allowing you to relax and enjoy the cozy flames of the gas-burning fireplace, to daydream out the large sliding glass doors or to get under a cozy blanket and watch your favorite old movie on the large TV.

Enjoy meals or libations outside on our OVERSIZED DECK! Complete with table, umbrella, director's chairs and Adirondeck chairs, there's plenty of room for everyone. The kids will love setting out on an adventure in the LARGE YARD AREA and everyone can enjoy playing a game of horse shoes at the horse shoes pit or roasting marshmallows at the fire pit! The outdoor HOT TUB is built into the deck and seats 6 people.

PETS are welcome, too. Please include the number of pets in the "Pets" field of the quotation window. If you care enough to bring your pet on your vacation in our home, then we know you've house-trained them! Our neighborhood, and the area in general, is very dog friendly! Hurricane Bay is a dog-friendly beach that is just 1 mile away from Sunnyside Beach. We do ask that you are diligent about cleaning up after your pet in the yard! Pets may not be left alone in the house, unless crated.

BEDROOMS are located on the Lower Level (2) and the Upper Level (2). The Lower Level Bedrooms both have queen beds. There is also a queen pull-out in the sectional sofa in the Family Room, allowing the Lower Level to sleep 6 people. In the Upper Level, 1 bedroom has a King Bed and a Twin Day Bed and the 2nd Bedroom has a Queen Bed and a Twin Bed. There is also an alcove area that has a Twin Day Bed, allowing the Upper Level to sleep 7 people. All TOTAL, Lippe Lodge can sleep 13 people very comfortably! Please note that there is a $25 charge plus tax per person over 10 people and this is not calculated in the quote.

BATHROOMS: 1 full Bathroom is on the Lower Level (with tub & shower), and 2 full Bathrooms are on the Upper Level (1 with tub & shower and 1 with just shower).

KITCHEN/DINING ROOM: The fully stocked Kitchen has everything! All major appliances, coffee maker, toaster, blender, pots/pans, dishes, glassware, name it, it's there! The gas stove top is built into the bar area, which makes it nice for more than one person to be helping in the Kitchen, and there's room for 3 people to sit at stools at the bar. The Dining Room table has chairs to seat 6 people, but there's space to pull up stools or extra chairs to seat more.

Some LOCALS' RECOMMENDATIONS: Hit the Bridge Tender or Rosie's Cafe for some apres ski action, go ice skating at Northstar or take the Gondola to the top of the mountain at Squaw! Walk to the Firesign Cafe for breakfast or lunch. In Summer, enjoy lunch or dinner on the deck overlooking Lake Tahoe at Sunnyside Resort. Go to the Free Concerts at Commons Beach on Sunday (bring a picnic). The best to-go sandwiches are at the PDQ Market in Tahoma. Get great coffee and pastries at Tahoe House (ride your bike). Ride or walk the bike path from home to Squaw Valley. Tube the Truckee River to River Ranch and have an ice cream (some tubes available at the house)! Enjoy!

About Melanie McDonald

As an avid snow and water skier, mountain biker & road cyclist, I fell in love with North Lake Tahoe many years ago while I was part of the Alpine Meadows Ski Patrol. I grew up skiing in New England - let's just say Tahoe is a pretty special place! The west shore is amazing - incredible mountain biking, road cycling and hiking right from the house - and on the backside of Alpine Meadows (Sherwood Chair) in the winter. On big snow days you can ski down Ward Valley Road back to the Lodge... If you haven't accessed Tahoe in the Spring and Fall - you are missing something special - GREAT weather and SMALL crowds! I've recently relocated to the East Coast for work, but Britton (my son) and I come back often - what used to be a full time second home for us is now (also) a wonderful vacation get away shared by people from all over the country and world - pretty cool. I'm excited about "sharing" the Lodge - it's a great property in a terrific location. There's even a neighborhood playground and tennis courts just a short walk away. Sunnyside resort is just a quick walk too. Always happy to help with trail, cycling and "secret powder stash" locations and information, if you have the desire - or you can just kick it in the hot tub or game room. Psyched that so many of you have come back - welcome to the family! Have a blast - it's what Tahoe and Lippe Lodge are all about. Best, Rob

Melanie McDonald purchased this house in 2004

Great gathering house

House is really great for a large family or like us, 3 couples. Easy location, not far from Tahoe city and blocks from Sunnyside. Upstairs family room is amazing!

Super Location - best ski tip ever!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I brought our 3 kids out in March to take advantage of the great snow/weather conditions in Tahoe this past spring. By far our best ski trip ever and the house was awesome (hot tub on back deck underneath canopy of huge pine trees was a major highlight). The back-entrance to Alpine Meadows was ridiculously convenient (5 minute drive & you are on the chairlift!). We had some friends from CA join us who were non-skiers and they had a great time poking around in Tahoe City, driving down to South Lake, doing some tubing, biking, etc. The game room for the kids is another big highlight - we kicked back there every night after skiing. Everything in the house was very clean (e.g. hot-tub, bathrooms) and convenient (e.g. Wifi, TV's). Tahoe City is 5 minutes down the road and has everything you need in terms of ski stores, restaurants, groceries, etc. Hoping for major snow next spring so we can come back!

Student Leadership Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I took 14 of my amazing high school leadership students here for a 3 day leadership retreat. When they weren't busy working and planning out the year, they were enjoying this lovely home. There was lots of space, and plenty to do! With the pool table, movies, games, hiking trails and awesome outdoor seating area, nobody was ever bored! The relationships and memories made at this home will be special to my students for years to come. Thank you Melanie!!

Wonderful spot for biking Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 4 couples enjoyed everything about the house. Wonderfully stocked and ready for an active fun week. Lots of biking, hiking, swimming and eating. The deck was a great place to congregate and enjoy Tahoe. Would love to visit again! Melanie is wonderful to work with. Highly recommend.

We enjoyed our stay very much.... Melanie was on top of everything and made our stay enjoyable.

The house was situated in a lovely neighborhood close to everything in Tahoma on West Shore...

Grandkids enjoyed the huge play/tv room... What a bonus!!!

We will definitely consider returning to this quaint house on West Shore!

fabulous family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent five days/four nights at Lippe Lodge in June and it was the perfect place for our family. There were two families with two kids each, plus two couples and we had plenty of room. The large fenced yard was great, as was the fire pit. It's an easy, although a bit long, walk to Sunnyside and the beach, and even though the house is on a main neighborhood street, there was little to no traffic. It's so quiet at night, I hoped that while we were outside with the fire pit that our voices were not carrying too loudly. We hope to book with the Lippe Lodge again, we had a great time.
