About the property

2 Bedrooms/1 1/2 Bathroom, Walk To Lake, 2 Miles To Heavenly

Our very comfortable lake retreat was created to be your home away from home. There isn't a better location than Al Tahoe to keep you close to all that your Tahoe vacation has to offer! Our lake retreat is the perfect place to start and end your days. From our fully stocked kitchen, to the very cozy living room....From our private hot tub to our big screen TV...from plush beds to finer linens.... This is the house for you if you want the flavor of Tahoe without it being too kitschy!

From the moment you arrive, you will feel like you have come home. We have covered parking for one vehicle and enough parking for up to 3 more cars. Our living room has high wood ceilings and wood laminate flooring. You will find a recliner that seats two and a couch that can double as a queen bed. The open concept of our first floor allows for everyone to be together, but has space for different activities....In the living room is a high top table with two bar stools where you can watch TV and play on your laptop on our high speed internet. A short distance away is the dining table that seats 6, a good place to build a puzzle, play cards or enjoy all of your meals. The kitchen has a wine barrel island with two more stools, the perfect area to prep food or sip on a glass of wine while visiting with the cook.

Our kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to create memorable meals with your family and friends. A 1/2 bath with ample counter space is on this level as well as a full sized front loading washer and dryer for your convenience. Step out the back door to the BBQ and the 6 person hot tub in our private backyard.

While walking upstairs you will pass by our vintage bear rug hanging on the stair wall...We respect these animals that frequent our neighborhood. We did not kill this bear but rather found him at a church rummage sale....We honor his life by giving him a prominent place in our home.

Once upstairs you will find a full bath with a shower and bathtub and two bedrooms. One room has very comfortable twin sized trundle beds and an antique make up table. The other room is furnished with a queen bed that is also really comfy, a chaise and a TV. There is a peek a boo lake view from the back window. Each room has adequate closet and dresser space. We have plenty of pillows and towels (no beach towels), extra sheets and blankets.

We offer our guests special amenities...With ample notice and for a small fee, we can have groceries of your liking waiting for you upon your arrival. When prearranged, we have a local private chef that can have a home cooked meal waiting for you when you arrive at the house...nothing like dinner in the oven after a long day on the road, on the slopes or on the lake!

All and all, your comfort is our goal...We take pleasure in helping you make memories with your family and friends here at our Al Tahoe Lake Retreat!

About Nanette

We bought our lake retreat in July of 2014 as a family investment project. We spent two months remodeling this house and look forward to making more changes each year. We take pleasure in creating a comfortable place so that when you walk in, you feel as if you are home!

We moved from San Juan Capistrano to No. Nevada about 8 years ago..We live in the Carson Valley, which is only a 35 minute drive to our Al Tahoe Lake Retreat, but a world away! We hope that you are as comfortable in our home as we are when we are there.

Nanette purchased this house in 2014

Why Nanette chose South Lake Tahoe

We love the historic Al Tahoe neighborhood. It's proximity to recreation, entertainment and services is unparalleled in the Lake Tahoe area!

Everything a single dad on vacation with 3 teen girls could ever need to cook, eat, and sleep

  • 5 of 5

The seasonal decor was warming, there were party favors for New Years, extras like blankets to cover up watching TV while it's snowing outside, ice packs for after ski bumps and bruises, and everything needed to feel right at home. The hot tub and BBQ were great too. If I go again I'm going to look up this cabin for availability. The owner was prompt and helpful to answer questions via text throughout our stay making things easier. The WiFi works great, has to be reset once from power bump but that's to be expected during storms.

Fantastic Place to Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two nights in this beautiful home. It is in a great location only a 10 minute drive to Heavenly and just a few blocks from the lake. The place was extremely clean, comfortable, and well maintained. After hours of skiing, the outdoor hot tub was the perfect luxury to relax with friends. We would definitely stay here again.

Great Location. Warm Decor. Extremely Comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights at this location, and I couldn't recommend it more! When you walk in, you're greeted by a lovely open air living room that's beautifully decorated. All of the rooms were incredibly comfortable, and the amenities are never ending. Nanette made herself available to us and recommended some wonderful spots for our visit. I will definitely be staying again!
