Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

The Fort Knox Family Lookout will be your new favorite home away from home. This South Lake Tahoe vacation rental has a crib, Pack 'n Play, and more amenities for children. There's also a fireplace and WiFi. It's a great family getaway!

If you're vacationing for the most fun South Shore attractions, you'll be in luck here with Heavenly Mountain Resort, Nevada casinos, Camp Richardson Historic Resort and Marina, mini golf, and restaurants all under five miles away.

Surrounded by a picturesque pine grove, this charming A-frame is bright and airy inside.

The living room's large bay window lets in tons of natural light and all eight guests can fit on the L-shaped couch (family photo op?). There's a library of DVDs, tapes, and CDs for your entertainment needs.

Next to the living room is a nice sitting room for playing board games or simply socializing. Just beyond here is a space containing a dining table with a high chair and booster seat available. Share a meal cooked in the fully stocked kitchen while the wood-burning fireplace crackles and warms the room.

For parents who want to keep their youngest ones close, the master bedroom contains a crib alongside the king-size bed. There's even access to the backyard from this room. Next to the master is a room with a full bed and upstairs are two more bedrooms, each with a queen. Two full bathrooms make it easy for a full house of up to eight and there are baby gates and a Pack 'n Play as well.

Take a moment to sit in the sunroom while you freshen up your clothes in the private washer and dryer.

At Heavenly Mountain Resort, the whole family can take on a rope course, ride the aerial gondola, go hiking, and then gather for a well-deserved dinner. You can easily reach Harrah's at Lake Tahoe for a parents-only night and then a day on the water with rented kayaks at Camp Richardson Historic Resort and Marina.

This homey South Lake Tahoe lodge is the perfect place for a memorable family retreat!

About Vacasa, CA - Lake Tahoe Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.

<br>

<br>

Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.

<br>

<br>

Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Amazing Fort Knox weekend in Lake Tahoe

  • 4 of 5

We planned a getaway marriage retreat for 4 couples. We had just enough rooms and beds for everyone. We all gathered in the living room and near the fire for fellowship. The house was spacious. We all rested this weekend and the place was just right.

The house wasn’t bad it’s just the WiFi only worked for half a day and there was only one tv with no cable so it was pointless to have a tv

Great location but house needs some updating

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here with 8 adults. The house is in a great location and close to everything. It was clean but definitely needs some updating. Maybe remodel the bathrooms and kitchen as well as new carpet. It would've been nice if there was cable available to guests. If no cable, then maybe a smart TV so we can access Netflix or DirecTV accounts. Also, it was odd that there's a room or a closet in the masters' bedroom that was locked. It didn't have a place to hang clothes anywhere in the downstairs.

Great place to congregate. Just had a problem with rodents and cleanliness

  • 3 of 5

I would like to start by thanking Vacasa for warning us about the mouse problem and giving us the chance to recieve a refund. Unfortunately this was 2 days before we were going to arrive on labor day weekend and there were no other options for us to stay. We kept the reservation with the hope the infestation wasn't too bad, to my disappointment it was worse then I had imagined. There were mouse dropping every where; both bathrooms, on the kitchen counter, and couch. The downstairs bed was also covered in what I imagine was cat hair as well as some more hair under the covers. Our ultimate problem wasn't with the mice themselves, but the fact that no one cleaned up their mess before we arrived, with them knowing about the issue. We even caught one of the mice for them with the traps we purchased on the way up the hill and cleaned up a majority of the mouse droppings. Besides the lack of clean beds and mouse droppings around the house our stay was good. The house is in a great location in South Lake. It was a perfect spot for any season with it being in a 5 mile radius from Stateline, Heavenly, and Camp Richardson. Hopefully they can get their rodent problem under control and a more thorough deep cleaning before the next guest arrives and I'm sure their stay will be much more pleasant.
