About the property

Mountain Home retreat in South Lake Tahoe -Sleeps 5 or 6

Our place is perfect for small families or groups. We are conveniently located off of North Upper Truckee Road, avoiding lake traffic during the busy season. We are on a quiet residential street, so no parties are allowed.

If you want to hear the bustle through the tress, our place is for you! We have a forestry lot on one side of us, and the other a cabin that is rarely vacated. Our place is not fenced. Our place comfortably sleeps 5, but if you don't mind sharing a full ,6 . Bedroom 1 has a queen, bedroom 2 has a full bed, with a bunk. Our cabin is very clean and fully stocked with all the essentials and then some. We have an open concept kitchen. Please note that we have seating for meals for 4 at the kitchen counter. We do not have a separate kitchen table. We have plenty of board games, xbox-360, which also doubles as a DVD player. We do have a limited amount of movies available.(mostly kid movies)

We have great Wifi service. Cell service is not great, but you can easily connect to our wifi for more phone coverage. Please note we only have 1 55" TV in the house.

Down the street from our location is the forest, with access to hiking, biking, snowshoeing and cross country skiing.

We are close to all that Tahoe has to offer in all four seasons.

About Karen Hill

Our family of 4 live in Oakdale , CA. We love Lake Tahoe so much we decided to buy a house in 2004 to share with our kids, but sadly do not get the opportunity to visit as much.

We hope you enjoy our cabin and this amazing area!

Karen Hill purchased this house in 2004

Why Karen Hill chose North Upper Truckee

We love this area due to the easy access (taking time off the commute) as well as being out of the tourist area. Christmas Valley and our location usually has the most snow !

What makes this house unique

You will love our cabin because it is very close to everything (including easy access both in and out of highway 50) but tucked away in a residential area off N.Upper Truckee Road.

Our house is very private and sounding space is absolutely beautiful. Our kids are able to play in the street in the summer, soccer, batminton, frisbee etc

Nice & Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this cabin last minute and boy, were we lucky this one was available! It's the perfect size and it is stocked with a good amount of vacation essentials. Everything was clean, updated, and the wifi and cable work really well. The location is quiet and peaceful, and not that far of a drive to Heavenly Village/Casinos/Beaches.

Thank you again Karen for letting us stay in your cute little home!

Hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

We had wonderful stay at the house. The house is well stocked up with all the essentials both in the kitchen and the toiletries. We felt home staying in Karen’s house. The location is perfect and close to beautiful tourist destinations like emerald bay, Baldwin beach etc.. we had a lovely and satisfying lake tahoe trip this time although its my 5th time visiting the place. If we go again to Tahoe, we sure are staying at Karen’s house.
