The house is in a quiet wooded South Lake Tahoe neighborhood near the intersection of Hwy 50 & Hwy 89. Located in the Gardner Mountain community with a filtered mountain view through the tall pines.

Living Room: Just inside the front door is a fireplace, a leather couch /sleeper sofa, two leather recliners and a large flat screen TV-- kick back and relax.

Dining Area: easily seats six people. There are board games, cards and puzzles in a cabinet in the dining room area.

I love my little house in the pines. It's furnished with my personal belongings and I often stay here. Please treat it with respect and kindness and be mindful of noise--our neighbors are our friends. Maximum two vehicles in driveway, no street parking in winter.

This is not a party house, there are plenty of places to party in Tahoe, the village, casinos, bars-- but not in my home. Please note, the caretaker for our home is also my next-door neighbor. Also, The City of South Lake Tahoe VHR (vacation home rental) Enforcement Officer issue citations and fines for noise, parking, occupancy or trash complaints.

-- SMOKING is NOT allowed in my home, the yard, on the deck or anywhere on my property.

--No more than six persons can stay overnight in the property. Any person visiting the property is the sole responsibility of Guest.

--Keep the property and all furnishings in good order. Do not move furniture around. Only use appliances for their intended uses.

--Winter Season Parking: If snow removal is in progress. street parking is not permitted by local ordinance. Cars in the way of snow removal equipment on any street are subject to towing, impound fees, and parking fines.

The cleanest cabin that we've ever rented. Pamela was a pleasure to book with, very accommodating and the cabin was very well appointed.

I have stayed at a number of short-term and long-term rentals and can't think of any that showed the level of care and extra touches Pamela has provided in her home. The beds are extremely comfortable pillow-tops with attractive duvets and pillows. The kitchen is fully equipped and Pamela keeps it stocked with all the basics and more. Same for all the paper products. All the furnishings are comfortable, attractive and appear to be new - not reused from a refurnished home. Homes to the sides are close, but only trees to the back, where a table and comfortable chairs are available on the deck. There are two things that did not bother us, but others might want to know. One of the upstairs rooms has a spacious chest of drawers but no closet. For those with mobility issues, the stairs to the two upstairs bedrooms are quite steep. In summary, a small, very comfortable and attractive home.

Outdoor enthusiast, love to ski, hike, bike, kayak--all things outdoors. A fun-filled day with friends and family of skiing or hiking around Lake Tahoe, followed by sharing a great meal and an evening relaxing on the deck or in front of the fireplace makes a perfect day!
