About the property

4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

Whispering Pines is a beautiful and comfortable home located in a quiet, safe, and friendly neighborhood. If you desire a peaceful and relaxing vacation, our home will be perfect for you. It is an ideal location for families and outdoor enthusiasts. There is a variety of activities only minutes away...hiking, biking, kayaking, fishing, golfing, horseback riding, etc. The Upper Truckee River is just down the street. You can walk or bike to Meyers and enjoy a handful of restaurants. It's an easy drive to the majestic Lake Tahoe or the nightlife/casinos at Stateline. For the winter months, there are several ski resorts in close proximity: Sierra-at-Tahoe (8.6 miles), Heavenly (9.8 miles), and Kirkwood (26.4 miles). There are also areas for snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling nearby. Enjoy beautiful forest views from our backyard. You can hear birds singing, watch the chipmunks scurrying up the trees, or listen to the whispering pines. In the winter, you and your family will have a blast playing in the snow, building snowmen, sledding, or just cuddling up by a warm fire. Our home includes modern amenities, but rustic decor to give it a unique Tahoe feel. We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do!

Outstanding Getaway Oasis in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding remote getaway in the woods. Less than 15 minutes from South Lake Tahoe and Heavenly and the same from Echo summit and Tahoe Vista. Spent days curling up by the fantastic fire place and playing games with the family and walking through the woods with our pup. Spent several evenings in the hot tub looking at the stars at night. 4 very comfy beds with plenty of privacy and mountain views all around. This is the fifth year we've gotten together with our grown kids and celebrated Christmas vacation together and this was our favorite house so far.

Best place you can ever stay! I will never go anywhere else but here!!

  • 5 of 5

I don't know where to start! From the owner that contacted me the day before and welcomed me to the house till the end! I've never been to any house so well refurbished. I promise you they had more things that I live in my own house! Stocked with what ever you can think of and it was really clean. I do not have a dog,but they had a bed for a dog and toys. Toys for kids, my 3 years old daughter loved them. Lena the owner is so kind and loving and she answeared any questions i had. I can go on and on about this property and the owner and is still have stuff to say. I already recommended this house to all my friends and family not to go anywhere else but to this house! Thank you lena for everything!!!

You won’t be disappointed!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were a bit skeptical about renting a private residence for our vacation, this was our first time....but we decided to take a chance. We are SO glad we did! After looking at so many homes and cabins on Home Away for our Tahoe vacation, and reading hundreds of reviews, we decided on Whispering Pines. It was perfect for us, our two teenagers and our 2 dogs.

The home was clean, fresh and stocked with everything you might need or forgot to bring. Everything was perfect! From the plush bath towels-and plenty of them-to the high end body wash and soaps-which my kids made me buy when we got home-to the comfy beds and couches-perfect! My kids of course gravitated to the ping pong table, hammock and the big hill in the back yard as soon as we got there! I especially liked the dog lead in the backyard...the lead was long enough so our dogs could explore but not go too far. The neighbors across the street were very nice and friendly and we just loved taking evening walks around the whole neighborhood. We visited around Halloween and all of the homes were festive!

The town of Meyers was only a few miles away....and Lake Tahoe was a few miles after that. Very convenient!

We had a great time in a great home and would not think twice about visiting again! Thanks Lana and Nate for the goodies and for sharing your beautiful home with us!

A fantastic location in the trees! The perfect dog friendly location.

  • 5 of 5

A great yard for the whole family. The mountain creek trails around the property make for a great dog adventures. The owners left a map on the refrigerator that helped us find beautiful fall tree trails along the creeks.

beautiful home with native adornments

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Lana for sharing your fabulous house with us and being an awesome host. Everything about your house is splendid. Starting with the welcome card, chocolates and martenelli we knew we were in for a fun and memorable weekend. We loved the native decor and furniture. With foosball and ping-pong for the active, hammock and swing for the elders, indo board for the adventurous and netflix for the family, your house had it all. It was almost as if your house is the main attraction and Lake Tahoe is bonus ;p. Thanks again for being a great host by allowing for flexible check-in check-outs and helping us with accessories we forgot to bring as well as stuff we forgot to take back :).

Magical Place

  • 5 of 5

We spent hours looking for the right place near Lake Tahoe to gather with loved ones to celebrate my 35th birthday and this by far exceeded any of our expectations. The hosts Lana and Nate take special care in not only meeting the needs of their guests, but also surprised us with extras that added a magical touch to our time at Whispering Pines, from having an oil diffuser going so we walked in to a sweet healing scent, setting up birthday decorations, a birthday card with a super sweet gc to a local restaurant, and good bottle of wine, to sharing awesome hiking books, a wonderful dvd collection, board games, wood for the fireplace, awesome smelling body wash, shampoo and conditioner, plenty of great quality towels, beautifully decorated rooms, each with an adorable theme. You will feel at home and on vacation all in one, Lana and Nate honestly thought of everything and you could feel it. Nestled in a quiet neighborhood with a backyard that leads directly into a beautiful forest of trees and rocks to hike and climb over any nature lover will be in heaven. One of my favorite moments was relaxing in the hot tub and marveling at the sky full of stars above after the long day of packing and unpacking, we had just finished relaxing on the super comfortable couches and I thought I might sleep on them until I tried the bed. ;) All of our guests were in love with the place, it really helped to bring us together and enjoy the company that much more. I can't give Whispering Pines the justice it deserves. I hope to visit again soon maybe in the winter this time! I couldn't thank the hosts enough for sharing this beautiful space with us.
