vacation rental description

This spectacular, prize-winning executive home is on Lake Tahoe's South Shore. To reach the front door, one must enter into a great stone cavern formed by massive granite boulders under a sod roof. "Stonehenge" is a beautiful vacation home built on a rocky ridge overlooking the woods and meadows of Tahoe Valley and the crest of the snow-capped Sierra Nevada. It is located at the edge of the El Dorado National Forest and no house or rooftop, nor street or wire, mar its magnificent view.

The end of the 50 by 35 foot living room is formed by a single stone. In the center of this great room lies another boulder and a mossy trout pond, bringing the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape, patio and lawns inside. Opposite the living room's glass solarium is the dining room, breakfast corner and tiled kitchen. Two gigantic fireplaces rise and pass through the room's 23 foot ceiling. Overlooking all of this are two sweeping, curved balconies which provide additional views of the mountain peaks and green forests that have made the Tahoe Basin world famous. Each bedroom is decorated with a unique and distinctive decor, the Greek Myth room, the Timberline room, Tyrolean, Mediterranean and Wildlife room. The unusual Austrian-styled "Strube" has its own stucco fireplace and provides a separate hideaway for games or intimate conversation. A library contains books and memorabilia gathered in travels to distant parts of the world. 

Mountain climbers who sometimes scale the boulders near "Stonehenge" acclaim its distinctive setting, intimate and blending with the environment, isolated, yet only five minutes from the center of town, elegantly styled but with a homespun sort of warmth.

A Most Memorable Vacation

Review submitted: August 25, 2014   Date of arrival: August 7, 2014

I have traveled all over the world, and Stonehenge is one of the most unique and memorable places that I have ever stayed. The home was clean, the bed comfortable and the gurgling of the in-home stream relaxing and soothing. All of the promised amenities were enjoyed including the large hot tub and the grand piano. The house is a short driving distance from Lake Tahoe, so we spent our afternoons kayaking on the lake and hiking the trails. I would not hesitate to recommend this home to all of my friends, and I hope to return again someday.

Owners response: HI. I AM SO HAPPY THAT YOUR STAY AT STONEHENGE WAS MEMORABLE.THANKS FOR BEING SUCH GREAT GUEST. HOPE YOU CAN COME AGAIN SOME DAY.

Unique cabin in a beautiful location

Review submitted: September 30, 2013   Date of arrival: September 27, 2013

We stayed at Stonehenge for a weekend and loved it. There are 5 queen beds so it can sleep 10 easily. We were 15 but we were able to find nooks and crannies so we could all fit in. It is a very warm and cozy cabin built while preserving the natural elements of the area. The owners are wonderful people and we had a chance to interact with them a bit which added to our appreciation of the cabin as they apparently built it by hand. The hot tub outside was great as it allowed us to relax both evenings after a long day out. There is a small negative - the place is about a 15 min drive to the casinos (but it is balanced by the beautiful location which would not be possible if the place was closer to the heart of town). I would definitely stay here again.

What a beautiful home with fantastic views. Rosemarie and Robin made sure our stay in Lake Tahoe was memorable. Our entire family was impressed with our choice of this property for our family reunion. I guarantee we will be looking forward to coming back next year.
