About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 15)

Relax in this very large, South Lake Tahoe, vacation home. Nestled amongst huge pine trees with a flowing year-round brook alongside the property, it is serene and private. It is conveniently located; walking distance to Heavenly Ski Resort and a three minute drive to the casinos. You can walk to hiking trails and it is only a short walk down to the lake.

This home features a new big Jacuzzi hot tub on a large deck. You can comfortably sleep 14 with its six bedrooms and three baths. Perfect for larger groups who want to enjoy South Lake Tahoe. Downstairs is the master bedroom with a king bed and its own bath, two bedrooms with queen-size beds, and one with two twin-size beds. There is also the second newly-remodeled bathroom. Upstairs are two bedrooms; one with a queen-size and a twin-size bed, and one with two twin-size beds. There is also a full-size roll-away.

The upstairs has its own bathroom and den/living room with TV/VCR/DVD. Enjoy watching digital cable by the fire in the spacious downstairs living room and leave the upstairs den for the kids! We have recarpeted, repainted, and redecorated. We recently replaced all the furniture and linens and just finished a full kitchen remodel. There is a brand new washer and drier in the house. This is definitely the best deal in a larger South Lake Tahoe vacation house!!

About Erik Petersen

A prior Army officer, I've traveled to 23 different countries and seen some wonderful spots in my life. When I'm home I'm close to Tahoe and love going up there. In summer we hike or hang out at the water, in winter there's great skiing and of course the casinos are fun year round!

Erik Petersen purchased this house in 2003

Why Erik Petersen chose South Lake Tahoe

As a child we used to rent a cabin in Tahoe for a good part of the summer. Some or my happiest memories were those times up at the lake. There are some places in the world where the finger of God has touched down, and Tahoe is definatlely one of them.

What makes this house unique

Skiing in the winter, golf in the summer, casinos and wonderful restaurants year-round. We love it! It's just a generally relaxing and enjoyable place to spend time.

Cozy Winter Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Our party of six adults and four children enjoyed staying at this house, and would stay here again. It was cozy and offered ample sleeping space, bathroom facilities and a large family room. We enjoyed walking to Heavenly ski resort, as well as the short ride across into Nevada. Downsides were too few plates/silverware, small kitchen table and very hot water surges in the showers.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback, I'm glad your group had a good trip! I walk to Heavenly at last twice each season myself, it's nice to be so close! I'll get my plumber out right away to see what's going on with the water heater. I just had it replaced in October, it's been fine, maybe it needs a reset. Around that time I'd also bought new plates but perhaps there's been breakage my housekeeper didn't let me know about. I'll jump right on that, thanks again for the heads up! See you next time!!

Sleeping with the Rats.

  • 1 of 5

One of the beds someone was sleeping in was covered in rat droppings when he woke up. on his nightstand on his pillow and on his bed. There is nothing more to say.

Owner's Response: EXTORTION ATTEMPT. Unfortunately when you own a vacation home sometimes folks will try to scam you. I had NO contact from this person during their stay at all. Five days after their checkout he called me to inquire about the timing of the deposit refund. I told him I'd cleared it to refund via the VRBO system and asked him how he enjoyed their stay. He said they had a great time and didn't mention any issues. Later that same day I got an email from him stating "before he posts a review" I should give him a refund of $250 or he'd mention they'd seen rodents in the home. I called him and left a voicemail to call me back and discuss the issue. I've had the home for fifteen years and have never had any such problem. He never responded and now five days after that he posts this. It's extortion plain and simple. None the less as soon as I got his email last week I contacted a local pest control company. They've inspected the home and see no evidence of any pests. I'll be having them do regular inspections to ensure I'm not leaving myself open to any further such attempts.

No surprises (great stay)

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed at quite a few vacation homes, and the last thing I want is surprises...and this home was just as expected. Everything worked, nothing was dirty, broken, or missing...there wasn't anything that required a call to the owner to figure out (some homes just have odd quirks sometimes). The atmosphere is standard South Lake Tahoe - I think we counted just under 30 pictures of bears, statues of bears, embroidery of bears, or bear related paraphernalia in the cabin.

The house is (a little bit) tucked back off the road - you can only get so secluded in South Lake but this is a little away from the neighbors (look it up on Google Maps). There is a nice little stream that you can hear from the hot tub on the deck, which made for some really relaxing moments. and the water was still flowing this weekend (Jan 19), so I'm assuming that is a year-round feature.

It's a good value for the features/area. I didn't communicate much with the owner (again...this is good...this means there were no headaches) but he was quick to respond to my 2 emails. I would stay here again.
