About The Owner

Lake Tahoe has been my home on and off for many years and I am happy to share it with my VRBO guests. I love spending my free time on Tahoe's North Shore - the quiet side of the Lake.

The Owner purchased this house in 1992

Why The Owner chose Kings Beach

We built our family home in this tranquil setting nestled amongst the towering pines. We love the central location, 1 mile to Lake, close to resorts & nightlife and easy access off Highway 267. Kingswood Estates is a quiet neighborhood located above Kings Beach.

What makes this house unique

The vacant lots around the house make my cabin private and peaceful, this is my Tahoe Retreat and I easily relax into 'Tahoe Time.' The views from upstairs feel like you are in a tree house with delightful glimpses of the Lake. Relax, Rewind & Rejuvenate - A stay at Nancy's is like Coming Home!

Nancy's Totally Tahoe Getaway - Private Kingswood Retreat
average rating of 5.0 based on 20 reviews

This was by far the nicest and best outfitted vacation home we have stayed at yet.

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely wonderful vacation spot! We were there for my niece's wedding in Kings Beach and needed accommodations for our 4 kids, two with spouses, and two young grandchildren. Where many homes might have been adequate, what made this property stand out for me was the little extras you don't normally find in vacation homes, such as plenty of plush towels, beach towels,good quality mattresses and linens, an extremely well-stocked kitchen, extra propane in case the attached tank ran out, and many games,puzzles, etc for all ages. We were even welcomed with a lovely bowl of pistachios and bottle of wine, a great way to begin our vacation! The decor was wonderful and woodsy ...I loved all the bears! The configuration with the downstairs suite was perfect for my oldest daughter's family of 4, and we really appreciated having 3 bathrooms. We all said we hope to come back soon, perhaps this winter to ski. The location is great, a nice morning walk to the beach, and there was adequate parking for 4 cars using the garage and driveway. Thank you Nancy for sharing your beautiful home...LOVED IT!

We loved it

We did not want to leave Nancy's Totally Tahoe Getaway. The home was clean, beautiful and functional. We had everything we needed, slept well, totally vegged at times and played games other times. We loved it.

A Perfect Fit

  • 5 of 5

Our first time at Nancy's house and my extended family is ready to return. Kings Beach is a convenient location for all of the cities in N. Lake Tahoe plus a visit to Truckee. The house is perfect for a family get together. The house is well supplied with everything and it is clean. Nancy's touch throughout the house is apparent. I recommend it highly!

Everyone thought this was the best cabin EVER!

  • 5 of 5

Between the awesome backdoor view, fireplace, great deck, comfy beds, and downstairs bar, this cabin really comes together for an awesome weekend stay. It was clean and inviting when we arrived. There is plenty of space for parking: 2 cars fit in the garage, 2 in the driveway, and 1 in a diagonal space off the driveway.

The only critical aspects I can think of during our stay are:

1) Oven/stove range is a little dated and there is no temperate gauge on the oven.

2) The hot tub only fits 4 people (comfortably). But even then, we still managed to fit 6 in the tub.

Next year, we will be staying at Nancy's cabin again!

Nancy's Getaway was a indeed a beautiful getaway for a weekend in Tahoe! Everything was clean, well-stocked, and our group of 10 loved our stay. Nancy was great about being in touch regarding any questions and even kept us filled in about recent snow in the days before our trip and about road closures. Everything was fabulous.

My daughter's wedding

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Nancy's getaway was all that we hoped for, and more. Her home is clean and welcoming as soon as you drive up. We treated it as if it was our own. Nancy's impeccable attention to detail was evident throughout the home.

Thank-you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home.
