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.

This house was in very poor condition

  • 1 of 5

This house was in very poor condition. The general condition of this house was very poor. It was the worst house I have rented from VRBO. The carpets were all stained and in poor condition, the bathrooms are very small, faucets leak. There are only 3 small windows for the upstairs and the 2 bedrooms upstairs remained hot through the weekend.

There are nicer homes in this price range.

Owner's Response: You're the first person in the fourteen years I've had the home who's complained in this manner. Can't please some folks I guess...

Solid Vacation

  • 3 of 5

Nice location, with a small creek right next to the house that runs alongside the long driveway (can fit about 5 cars in a row). The house was okay; my guests and I are fairly laid back people and low maintenance, so we don't require much. That being said, this place wasn't in the best of shape. Some examples: The carpets are a little worn and stained, the flooring in the kitchen is off center at one point, the master bathroom has a swinging shower door that is a little difficult to seal all the way from inside the shower, the upstairs has a faint musty smell to it, a previous guest burned coal on the propane grill and seemed to ruin it, etc. However, there is a nice deck in the front, hot tub, lots of bedding for many guests, decent number of bathrooms, etc. Overall, it's a nice location (very close to downtown) and my party enjoyed themselves, but this place could definitely use some renovation and minor repair in some areas.

Great cabin for large groups!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our time here! The house accommodated our large party and was in a great location for access to Heavenly. We enjoyed the hot tub and Erik was great to work with-super responsive! We will definitely rent here again. My only suggestion is to upgrade cooking pans, but everything else fantastic!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the heads up on the pans, sometimes they can get the rough treatment! I'm so happy you had a good time up there, give a yell for your next trip!

`The Perfect Ski Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was the absolute perfect house for our group ski vacation. First, the location could not have been more ideal. We were a 2 minute drive to the slopes which couldn't have been better. The home itself was also great, we particularly enjoyed the grill and cozying up by the fireplace in the large living room.Our group of 12 easily fit in the house, with beds to spare. Very accommodating for groups like ours. Erik was the best host I've ever worked with, sharing frequent tips that really made the trip. He was always quick to respond and super helpful. I will definitely stay here again if he will have us back!
