About Wendy Copra

I've been in the travel industry for more than 30 years.Our family loves to travel, so we have rented homes on this website and other websites all over the world. Because we are visiting other places as well as Lake Tahoe, we have the time to rent our Jicarilla Chalet for others to enjoy. We love to have family reunions here whenever possible. Lake Tahoe is a fabulous year round destination!

Wendy Copra purchased this house in 2011

Why Wendy Copra chose South Lake Tahoe

We fell in love with this property 30 years ago, because of all the beautiful pine trees and the forest at the end of our street. When we retired we completely remodeled it. It originally was a small A frame home and we turned it into a 2,400 square foot home with a large deck to capture the views of the mountains.


Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Perfect House for a Family & Close to Everything

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for five nights during Christmas. The house was nearly perfect in every way. It was clean and has plenty of room to accommodate a large family. It's just far enough away from Pioneer Trail (the main road leading into town) so you can't hear any of the cars, yet if town is just a short drive away. It's also a short drive to Heavenly Ski Resort, Sierra-at-Tahoe and Kirkwood isn't too far either. The house is on a quiet cul-de-sac street with hiking trails at the end of it. The house has heated floors which was a really nice touch.

Lastly, the owners were extremely friendly and very responsive. Don't waste your time looking for other places.

Location! Location! Location! Wonderful chalet, perfect for our family and pets

  • 5 of 5

We booked the Copra's chalet for our winter break vacation. The house has plenty of room, so that people can find a quiet spot if they want it, but also can convene around the wonderful living room and kitchen area. Snow fell while we were there and it is a veritable winter wonderland. The spa provided much needed relaxation after a day outside and we will absolutely book again. The day of our arrival the owners called to give us extra pointers about the house and were so kind and welcoming. Book with confidence!

When we booked this house, I read the reviews and thought they were too good to be true. They are true. This house (can't call it a cabin) is wonderful, has a great yard and wild flowers, spent many hours in the backyard reading. The upstairs is wonderful with the loft, game room, one bedroom and bathroom. We enjoyed one of the downstairs bedrooms while the kids stayed upstairs. The three bathrooms are beautiful, I would consider each a master bathroom. There is little traffic as it is on a dead-end street. Location is great as it is close to everything. The kitchen is first class, lots of marble counterspace. On our way home I asked my husband if he had any negative thoughts about our stay, he couldn't think of one. We plan on booking again for next year.

Comfy living space, fully equipped kitchen, beautiful double vanity bathrooms stocked with ORGANIC toiletries, plenty of extra towels, blankets and pillows, library of great books including Christian readings :-) games and so much more! Wendy is great. She is very reponsive. I highly recommend this cabin!

South Lake Tahoe

Our home is located in a neighborhood with filtered views of the mountains. Our favorite beach is Camp Richardson, which has live music and a nice restaurant. There is a pier there where you can rent a boats, paddle boards, kayak, jet skis etc.

We have a nice deck where you can relax and a forest with paths that go on forever. Biking trails are nearby. You must see Emerald Bay. It's beautiful. Hikers can hike down a trail to the beach, or you can take a boat. There's a house there, called Vikingsholm that was built in the early 1900's. It's worth the trek.
