About the property

One-of-a-Kind Amazing House on Acreage Near All~ Privacy- Seclusion & Games too!

This is our family's only vacation home, and a very special one it is. We manage it ourselves so you deal directly with very nice owners who really care about their guests. We feel so fortunate to own this extraordinary property and we love sharing this home with folks who are looking for someplace really special where they can make lasting memories of a lifetime...

We hope that you will be one of the very fortunate folks to discover - and then experience this incredible One-Of-A-Kind vacation home located just blocks from the Heavenly Mountain Ski Resort - yet seemingly located deep in a Secluded Forest. This home is the perfect base camp for skiing, snowboarding, hiking, sightseeing, mountain biking, sailing, water skiing and all Lake Tahoe adventures. Whether you are looking for a vacation home that is close to skiing, the Lake, the Casinos & all the local amenities - or one that is secluded, quiet, peaceful, relaxing ~ or a home with lots of games & entertainment - this amazing vacation home will provide you with the very best of all worlds.

This extraordinary home is perfectly located close to everything important. Nearby is the fabulous Heavenly Village with over 40 unique shops, eateries, and entertainment venues, and the Heavenly Gondola which will take you to the top of Heavenly and all the many amenities there - including the stunning Tamarack Lodge (great food, drinks & stunning views) overlooking the Lake and the longest Zip Line in the USA! You can walk to most places from the cabin & take a cab back home when needed! There is simply no finer location from which to enjoy all the many wonders of Lake Tahoe than this amazing home in Heavenly Valley. Whatever you have planned - this will be the perfect place & perfect setting for your stay.

This estate sized property provides you with the ultimate in Privacy and Seclusion. It is located on 1.3 pristine acres surrounded by acres & acres of Forest Land, all in it's natural state. Kinda like going to Grandma's house in the Forest but without the Big Bad Wolf. If you enjoy the beauty and enchantment of nature - of being in the middle of the forest and trees - of watching wildlife - you will love this place. This property is located at the end of a cul-de-sac on a private road shared with just a few homes. We are the only home on our side of the cul-de-sac and we are located at the very end of the cul-de-sac. It is a Fairy Tale setting while amazingly enough just blocks to Heavenly Skiing and just 1-2 minutes to the Lake and the Casinos! You will not see another vacation property with all these features in such a fantastic close-in location and on acreage - as they are extraordinarily rare! We know of only one. This one!

The private road this Hidden Paradise is on does not even show on most maps. When you are out in the front of the property it feels like you are out in the country. When you are inside the house or out in back - it feels like you are deep in the woods. If you love the outdoors - this is Paradise. Sled, snowboard or mountainbike down your very own hill... right out in back! Watch the action from inside the house. Go Hiking, enjoy the charming Bubbling Creek right out in back in Spring & Summer - or play Hide and Seek in acres of forest. Perfect for children of all ages! Relax and enjoy total peace and tranquility! Imagine yourself in a Hot Tub set in Natural Boulders in the Woods, relaxing with your favorite drink under the Stars & Sky in total privacy and seclusion. After a day of skiing, sledding, hiking, rafting ... it just doesn't get any better than this!

Your beautiful & inviting vacation home is centered around a large custom River Rock fireplace. Every stone was hand selected to match the color scheme. The large All-Gas fireplace puts out enough heat to heat the entire house, or just provide that special ambiance. The interior of the home is beautiful and features a rustic mountain decor with over 100 bears (you might just see a real bear while you're here!)! The home is a spacious 2 stories with 20' ceilings in the Living Room yet it has a warm, comfortable and cozy feel to it. It is ideal for families and smaller groups yet can easily accommodate a larger group.

You will love the Entertainment package. There is something for everyone: WiFi Internet & TV's in almost every room with your favorite programs on cable. You will enjoy a Huge 61' HD BIG SCREEN TV in the great room with DVD player, surround sound and lots of HD movies! You can watch Warren Miller Ski movies when you are done tearing up the slopes. Or pick out an adventure or romantic movie. Lots of kids movies too. The Game Room also has a big screen HDTV plus high quality Foosball, Ping Pong, Shuffleboard and Darts. We have lots of Board Games to play and Books and Magazines to read too, so you will never be bored at Heavenly Paradise.

The 3 BR's are all located upstairs. There is a large MBR suite with a King bed & a Daybed. The 2nd BR has a Queen bed and the 3rd BR has a Queen bed & 2 Twin over Full bunkbeds & a TV/DVD player - Perfect for kids. All the Bedrooms have a Stereo Clock Radio that you can plug your iPod/iPad into. You can set your alarm to wake up to your favorite music.

Click the 'Virtual Tour' link shown just below for a dynamic 360 degree view of the home and property.

This special home is ideal for families with children (high chair, bassinette & Baby Gate provided), groups or couples. It is the ideal romantic retreat for 2 or it can accommodate a family or group up to 10 adults plus 2 or 3 kids. NOTE: 10 ADULTS MAXIMUM. The top bunks & day bed are for kids only. There are only two simple rules: No smoking. No parties.

About Bruce Johnson

We love Lake Tahoe. It is so beautiful year round with so much to do. So much history with Reno, Carson City & Virginia City nearby. Wintertime brings lots of snow for Skiing, snowboarding & snowmobiling. The other seasons are just as wonderful with the Lake, hiking, mountain biking, parasailing & much more. 275 days of sunshine a year! Nearby Casinos provide excitement with gambling and great entertainment. And it can be affordable. Come visit in May, Sept or Oct for our Super Low offseason rates. Any time is a great time to visit Lake Tahoe and stay at Heavenly Paradise - Like going to Disneyland in the mountains.

Bruce Johnson purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Bruce Johnson chose Lake Tahoe South Shore

Heavenly Valley is the best. We have been coming to Lake Tahoe since the early 70's. We met in 1972 on a Lake Tahoe beach. We vacationed here every year. So many attractions and always something new to do or see. Our boys loved coming up to snowboard and play in the snow. It was a second home to them. When this amazing home came up for sale we could not believe how secluded and private it was - yet close to everything. We still cannot believe how lucky we were to be able to buy it! It is a joy to be able to share such a unique and special home in one of the greatest locations on the planet. No wonder Lake Tahoe is the #1 vacation destination in the US & Heavenly the Premier Spot! Kinda like going to Disneyland but with real snow!

What makes this cabin unique

It is quiet, peaceful, private and serene. Yet close to everything. You feel like you are out in the country and forest, yet you can walk to the lake and casinos. For fun & excitement or pure relaxation this home has it all. Staying here makes you smile. Being here makes you happy. Super low rates in May, Sept & Oct make it very affordable. Come see for yourself.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your home was just so warm & cozy. We loved everything about it so much! Sledding & going in the hot tub was just so much fun. We were just so grateful to be here. We hope that the people who come after us also feel like this house is special.



P.S. We love all the bears & recommend Mandarin Garden Restaurant.

Great weekend getawat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful and relaxing time in this comfortable and well stocked family home. Great location, private drive and beautiful view from back porch. Our two English bulldogs loved playing in the snow in the front of the house. Game room is in garage so we had to park our vehicles in the driveway. Had our other son joined us like he planned he would not have had anywhere to park due to snow and not parking on the street. Would definately come back. Thanks for sharing your home!!

The best

  • 5 of 5

We've been in several vacation homes, but by far your home was the best and most clean. The kitchen was well equipped and they were mostly new. And I loved the fact that the house was "kids friendly!"

Thank you!

Serene stay in the forrest

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic stay at this rental. The house was very clean and well-organized with labels. The Jacuzzi was in great working condition and was wonderful during the cold evenings. The fireplace did an amazing job keeping the house warm. The view from the back patio is fantastic, it really feels like you do not have any neighbors. I will definitely stay here again in the future.

Homey, great veiw, comfortable, private and plenty of amenities

  • 5 of 5

Nice kitchen with a lot of amenities, plenty of room for my family, great deck with hot tub and view. We loved the game room. TV was great and beds were comfortable. The house is located at the end of a private street with a nice backyard full of nature and trees. You feel that you are far away from town, But are at South lake Tahoe store, restaurants, etc in 2-3 minutes. I would recommend. If I ever make it to South Lake Tahoe again, I will try to see at the same house! BTW - hanging around Emerald Bay on your visit is a must...
