About Lori Engelhardt

We are a fun-loving couple with one major issue - the inability to agree on whether snowboarding or skiing is the cooler sport. When there's not snow on the ground we love everything else that Tahoe has to offer like hiking, kayaking, biking, visiting the beach and water-skiing.

Lori Engelhardt purchased this house in 2012

Why Lori Engelhardt chose South Lake Tahoe

We fell in love with this cabin. It's comfy, cozy, serene and fits so many of our friends and family, plus we couldn't be closer to Heavenly or the lake. It's ideal for our lifestyle and we hope that you and your family and friends enjoy it as much as we do.

Perfect Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

I’ve stayed here before multiple times and loved it. It’s perfect for large families with children. I will hopefully come back if it’s not already booked up. It’s a very popular place to stay. It’s close to everything especially if you like to ski. It’s an awesome spot. I would definitely recommend it. Hopefully you don’t mind stairs. It’s tri-level with Master on top floor (2 restrooms). 3 rooms on middle floor (2 restrooms) & 2 rooms on the bottom with 1 restroom. Good luck & enjoy!

Amazing stay!

I can't thank Lori enough for our amazing stay. The house fit our family comfortably. The large dining table was an added bonus. Can't wait for our next visit :)

Really enjoyed our visit!!

  • 4 of 5

It's a very nice home and our large group (15) never felt cramped or confined. We loved the fact that it was 3 levels allowing the kids to hang out on the bottom floor while the adults were able to gather in relative quiet upstairs. The garage converted to game room kept them all busy for hours and hours. We loved the proximity to town and the lake. We would definitely stay here again The only reason for 4 rather then 5 stars was lack of air conditioning --it was very warm the week we stayed and we needed to leave bedroom windows open to cool off which then allowed all the car noise to disturb our sleep often through the night. You can't see Pioneer Trail but you're can definitely hear the cars at night time. Thinking of booking a group for wintertime fun!

Great house! so much space! full loaded!!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time we had 13 people and there was so much room in the house we never felt crowded! It was fun having a family tourment playing air hockey, pool and ping pong!

The few things that came up were taken care of immediately by the Lori, the property manager, she was the best!!! Thank you Lori!!! The house is beautiful and fully stocked. The only suggestion I may share is that you might consider getting a new kitchen trash can one that works so the lid stays up when trying to empty the trash and putting a new bag in. We had a wonderful time thank you for everything

Huge house with room for our entire extended family

  • 5 of 5

We loved our July 2017 stay in this house. There was plenty of room for our entire extended family to stay in one house, rather than having to rent multiple houses like we've done in years past. We liked having the gas stove compared to other houses we've stayed in which had all electric kitchens. Also, this kitchen was very well stocked with pots and pans and dishes and utensils and even wine glasses. A lot of vacation rentals aren't!

The location is excellent... just a few minutes drive to the grocery store or restaurants. In winter, it would be a nearly perfect location for anyone that wanted to ski at Heavenly.

My favorite thing about staying here may actually have been the responsiveness of the property manager, Lori. The gentleman that services the hot tub neglected something the day of our arrival. I emailed Lori and she responded very quickly and got the issue resolved for us. I truly enjoyed using the hot tub the rest of the week. Throughout the week, as questions popped up such as "is there a container for recyclables?" all I had to do was email Lori and I had an answer within a couple of hours.

Be aware that the picture (on VRBO) of the living room that shows an old-fashioned CRT-tube television is a little out of date. The living room now actually features a flat-panel HDTV and a blu-ray player, although other rooms in the house do still have CRT televisions in them. The cable television system, Charter Spectrum, was excellent... as was the speed of the WiFi. I think they are also in the process of enabling the living room for surround sound... five speakers have been installed, but are not yet hooked up to anything.

One other thing to be aware of, if you're planning on staying here during the summer, is that there's a huge difference in temperature all day and night between the rooms on the lower two floors and the rooms on the upper floor. (The kitchen, living room, dining room, and master bedroom are on the upper floor.) If you prefer to sleep in a cool room, you'll want to be in any of the numerous bedrooms on the two lower floors. If you prefer warmer conditions, the master bedroom and the rest of the top floor are for you. Even with the ceiling fan going and all the windows open, the master bedroom stays pretty warm during the summer.

Our extended family gets together for a week somewhere every year... and this was clearly the best place we've stayed in all the years we've been having our get-togethers.
