Debbie Conde purchased this cabin in 1991

Why Debbie Conde chose Christmas Valley

We chose this house for the location! Quiet neighborhood,, away from the crowds. But minutes from all the activities that visitors come here for, and that South Lake Tahoe has to offer. About 20 minutes from downtown South Lake Tahoe. Grocery shopping 5 minutes from the cabin. Close to ski resorts, Sierra, Kirkwood, and Heavenly. Cross country skiing out your door. This is ideally a perfect couples getaway close to many outdoor activities. Very popular in summer for hiking and biking enthusiasts because of the back country roads and trail access. Perfect location for the Death Ride. About 15 minutes to Echo Lake.

What makes this cabin unique

Quiet forested cabin in residential neighborhood featuring wild life, the Truckee river, convenient access to the back country hiking, cross country skiing, biking trails, ski resorts, and lakes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed for 3 nights. We decided at the last minute to take our bikes to Tahoe and enjoy the off season great weather. The house is located in a perfect area to take off and ride. We rode over to Sorenson's, then on to Markleeville. The scenery is unsurpassed! Fantastic location for hiking and biking, and just enjoying the outdoor beauty of Tahoe. The next day we took a short ride up to Fallen Leaf Lake and enjoyed a picnic lunch. The owners left us a bottle of wine, bread, cheese and muffins a which we conveniently packed in our backpacks for lunch by the lake. The house is very comfortable and cozy. We enjoyed cooking and soaking in the hot tub after our great days outdoors. We sat by the fireplace at night, and had a fair amount of movies to choose from Netflix which was available along with a few movies through their satellite dish service. The bed was comfy and cozy. The nights very quiet. This is the perfect house for couples escape, or small family. Why would anyone choose a hotel room when this accommodation is available at a better value, with all the comforts of home. We'll be back in October to enjoy the Fall colors.

Warm, welcoming cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the cottage twice with our 7-year old. It’s the perfect get-away and positioned well to take advantage of Heavenly, Kirkwood and Tahoe at Sierra. We arrived both times to the welcoming sight of the lights on, a goody basket inside the door and fresh flowers in the living room. The hot tub revived us after a day of skiing, we had the cookware we needed to whip up dinner, and we slept well with additional heaters in each room. We look forward to next time!

Charming, clean, and entertaining cabin/cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for our family of 4. Our kids loved all the choices of video entertainment. And the hot tub was a huge hit after a day of skiing at Sierra-at-Tahoe. We all enjoyed the welcome basket stocked with tons of goodies.
