About Brigitte Elder

My husband Scott and I have been married for 15 years. We live in Davis, CA with our 14-year-old daughter. We have dreamed of owning a house in Tahoe for many years. Now that our dream has become a reality, we spend as much time as we can in the mountains. We hope you enjoy our little bungalow in South Lake Tahoe as much as we do.

Brigitte Elder purchased this house in 2014

Why Brigitte Elder chose Rancho Bijou

We wanted a place that was close to everything, yet had a secluded feel to it. This house is a peaceful retreat after hitting the casinos or the slopes. It has updated features, yet maintains the feel of Tahoe.

What makes this house unique

We love being able to walk to several stores and restaurants. Our neighborhood is quiet, safe, and conveniently located near the lake, the casinos, and Heavenly ski resort. Our goal is to provide a fun and comfortable vacation home for our guests.

Clean, accommodating, walking distance to everything you’ll need.

  • 5 of 5

We came to Tahoe for our wedding and stayed at this property for 7 nights. It has a great central location and has a wonderful layout that is great for entertaining (small groups - strict Tahoe rental laws) both inside and out. We enjoyed having a big kitchen, 2 bathrooms, a pool table and an attached garage. Just a 10 minute walk to the beach, CVS, Safeway and many delicious restaurants. Owners are quick to respond to any inquiries. We’ll look for this rental when we plan next years trip!

Soooo much better than a hotel

  • 5 of 5

Extremely convenient location, walk to stores and the lake, yet very quiet and peaceful. Very clean and pleasant, board games, books, and pool table. Plenty of towels and you will never run out of hot water. We had an extremely good stay in this lovely home.

Great stay at the Rancho Bijou!

  • 5 of 5

The property is as described. The location was excellent and the owner was very responsive. It was great having a garage to park in as Tahoe received over 40 inches of snow over two days while we were there. The driveway and sidewalk to the house were cleared a couple of times with a snow blower while we were there without having to contact the owner. This home is very charming and is located in a neighborhood close to everything. Brigitte is an excellent VRBO owner. We had an outstanding stay!
