About the property

Close to skiing and beach, Lg back yard, great family home, Bright and clean.

My Home is a Charming 3 bedroom 2 bath Tahoe chalet, nestled in the woods, with Mountain and Forest views. There is a private year round out door Spa surrounded by a private deck. The property is fully fenced and in the summer the back yard is covered with green velvet grass, with a BBQ and Log Picnic table. In the Winter, the back yard becomes a Winter wonderland for young and old alike.

Each of the 3 bedrooms has a queen bed, and is uniquely decorated with Log furniture, antiques, bears and other fun items.

The Master bedroom on the main level has a queen log bed, and a 32' Flat Screen TV. The second bedroom(The Bear Room) has a queen Oak bedroom set, and you guessed it, lots of Bear decor. The third bedroom (lower level) is a Private Master Suite, which includes a small kitchenette, breakfast nook, TV and bath.

The living room has large windows with mountain and forest views, and a 14' high open beam pine ceiling. The living room is decorated with Family antiques and log furniture. There is sleeping for 2 on the a queen log futon couch. The living room also has a large flat screen TV with a surround sound system that's great for watching the over 150 DVD movies the we have personally picked out!

The dining room has a large picture window and is decorated with a log dining table with log chairs, and a cozy warm wood stove(Winter Only).

The sun room has large picture windows with beautiful mountain and forest views. For sleeping this room has a Day Trundle Bed(2 Twins) and a breakfast nook table. It's a great place for morning coffee.

The fully equipped country kitchen is perfect for those family get together. The kitchen has updated appliances and most of the cooking utensils, dishes, pots and pans, flatware and baking dishes needed for your stay. If you have a favorite baking dish or frying pan, bring it along. But who wants to cook on their vacation!!

The Laundry Room (lower level) has a brand new washer and dryer. The room is large enough to set up the Ironing Board for easy access during your vacation.

Our home is perfect as a cozy get-a-way for 2, or a family reunion, two families, or even sleeping accommodation for a wedding on a budget. The honeymoon couple can stay in the Private Master Suite, lower level (Private entrance), and the wedding party(up to 8 people) can stay in the main level part of the house.

About Jennifer Johnson

I grew up in South Lake Tahoe. My mother still lives in the home I grew up in. My husband and I bought the property as a our vacation home before we moved to Florida. We currently live in Florida in the winter and spend the summers with my mother in Lake Tahoe, leaving our vacation home available year round for friends, family and a few selceted renters

Jennifer Johnson purchased this house in 1985

Why Jennifer Johnson chose South Lake Tahoe

We bought our vacation home for us, and our family to use. That means we bought our home because of the great location, beautiful views, and unique floor plan. Not because it was cheap, a foreclosure, or an investment we can sell later. We have owned our home for almost 30 years, and each year we lovingly upgrade, remodel, and improve our home without changing the wonderful Tahoe and mountain charm. We especially enjoy adding new family treasures to the charming Tahoe decor of family antiques, log furniture, and Bear and Wolf themed rooms. While keeping the Tahoe charm we have added the modern conveniences we have all come to expect, like wifi, 3 flat screen TV's, surround sound with 150 DVD movies, a cute country kitchen with updated appliances, a fully equipped laundry room that most of us would love to have in our own home, and a great out door spa that will melt your troubles away. Our home has beautiful mountain and forest views (one guest told us the view from the floor to ceiling windows was like living in a tree house). The fenced in back yard, in the summer, is a velvet green of grass with a BBQ and a log picnic table, and in the Winter, it becomes a Winter Wonderland for young and old alike. We picked this property as our vacation home for it's location, close to beaches, skiing, stores, casinos and all that Tahoe has to offer year round, without giving up the reason you are vacationing in Tahoe in the first place, (Why stay in a home that has a view of the back of the neighbors house), our home backs to open forest service land without a house in sight, in a beautiful upgraded neighborhood with easy access to it in the Winter. Come make our home your your home, just like one of our guests who has been vacationing in our home for over 18 years.

Cozy, quaint home is a perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here - the house was incredibly clean and had very cute decorations everywhere. The large DVD collection kept us entertained, and the hot tub was the cherry on top of every night of our stay. The only bummer was that you have to go outside to access the downstairs honeymoon suite, but it's a five second walk down the stairs, so it wasn't bad at all. Plenty of towels and other resources (soap, shampoo) were provided, so you don't have to waste space packing those! There is tons of activity nearby in South Lake Tahoe, and there are multiple ski resorts within a short drive as well (there's a ski rack right outside the front door too!). Jennifer was very responsive and made sure everything about our stay went smoothly. It was a wonderful stay overall!

Clean, Roomy and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this property was wonderful. The house was very clean which is my highest priority. It had everything we needed: kitchen appliances and cookware; laundry room; fenced in back yard. It was a 10 minute ride to the grocery store which was convenient. It was located close to everything whether you want to head to the casinos or to the North Shore. We would stay here again.

Perfect family home

  • 5 of 5

The house is very clean, neat, welcoming

and beautifully decorated. There is separate studio-like downstairs that adds privacy within the group as it has his own bathroom, kitchen and sitting area. Location is great too. I would definately recommend this property and would stay there again.

Beautiful vacation home, close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

This home far exceeded our expectations. The pictures and listing on the web site were nice, but to see it in person was even better. The house was warm and inviting, very clean and well maintained. We really enjoyed how each room was decorated differently. The sunroom was the best, I could have stayed there all day, with the view of the trees and forest it was incredible. The laundry room had a new washer and dryer and even a place for an ironing board to be left up for our entire stay. The back yard was green and was fenced so a great place to play for the kids. The kitchen was clean and bright and well stocked. The owner was easy to talk to and very helpful. We were close to everything, but with a feeling that we were in the woods. The hot tub was private and the stars at night were incredible. We are thinking of comming back in the Winter to see the view of the snow in the trees. I would recommend this house to my friends and family.

great family destination

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed two times this past summer at the Johnson's Beautiful Tahoe Home. We chose them for a last minute weekend reservation and returned later in the summer for a week. The pictures do not do this home justice. It felt so cozy and homey inside decorated well with a cabin feel. It was awesome for us traveling with our kids and my in-laws. My in-laws stayed in the room downstairs with it's private bath and kitchen they were able to escape the chaos of the kids and enjoy their own space. The yard was so green and well maintained in the middle of summer and fenced so it was fantastic area for kids.

The home was super clean. My only disappointment would be that the grill was not working so all cooking had to be done indoors.

The owner was awesome to work with and was very accommodating and easy to work with, and left nothing to question. The location was great being near the Y and Camp Richardson, and a just far enough away from the chaos of downtown. We ate at the Beacon at Camp Richardson which was reminiscent of Dukes on the beach in Hawaii, YOU have to try the fries. Large portions, 5 star quality, and simply awesome. Best pizza, Tahoe Pizza Co. did not disappoint.

I will say that the only advise I can give is if you are planning on staying longer than a few days there are no laundry amenities so pack according. And do not expect your cell phone to work pretty much anywhere in Tahoe, but the wifi helped to keep us in contact. If you are looking for a great deal and all the comforts of home you found your next vacation spot.
