Our Tahoe Chalet is a dream come true for our young family of 6. As lifelong Northern Californians, it was a no-brainer to look to South Lake Tahoe when deciding on a vacation spot to build memories with our family and friends.
Nestled in a quiet neighborhood, away from the noise of the city, our cabin awaits you. Sit on 1 of 3 balconies or on the deck and listen to the wind blow through the trees and enjoy the "all natural" pine scent.
Relax in the spa under the beautiful natural pines and enjoy each other's company. Get the kinks out after a long hike or loosen up the tail bone bruise from the hard fall you took on the slopes.
Go for a short walk. Go for a long walk. Go cross-country skiing or snowshoeing or mountain biking or snowmobiling!! Our home is just 1 block from miles of trails through the forest and meadows. Even toddlers will enjoy the 15 minute walk down to the Truckee River.
If you love skiing or snowboarding, we are just 8 minutes to Heavenly and 15 minutes to Sierra at Tahoe.
If you want to hit the beaches it's just 8 minutes as well. And we're 8 minutes to "The Y". You can get to just about anything in South Lake Tahoe in 8 minutes.
Want to enjoy the night-life without calling a cab? We have the "Smallest Pub in Lake Tahoe" right in our very own cabin. There is always something special on tap, but if you're hoping that Natural Ice or Pabst Blue Ribbon is on tap, you will surely be disappointed. We're not interested in a house full of frat boys. This is our family home and we simply want you to enjoy the pub and game room responsibly and in good taste as we do. Drink responsibly and with integrity and the pub will remain open indefinitely.
Speaking of the game room, we have a bumper pool table that will likely keep you up all hours of the night (It's addicting). There is a TV with Cable, tons of games for the kids and family and even a vending machine fully stocked with candy for the kids... and adults. So bring some quarters.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding our cabin, local activities, child care, calendar or anything else.
*Frangelica is a sweet lady and great with kids. If you want to get out in the evening or take an adult day excursion, let us know and we will get you her contact info. Please, give her some advance notice so she can plan around your stay.

Wonderful happy home to stay in! Very lucky to have the opportunity to spend the weekend in Amber and Nathan's home. The bumper pool table kept us up and they had delicious Lagunitas beer on tap! I communicated with Amber throughout and she was responsive and very accommodating by letting us check-in a few hours early. Would definitely love to come back!
What a wonderful home away from home! My group and I had a wonderful time in Nathan and Amber's home. It is excellently located near pretty much all that South Lake Tahoe offers and has all the amenities one might be seeking. Nathan and Amber made sure we knew exactly what to expect and what they too expected out of their guests.
Highly recommended to anyone with a medium-large sized group wanting to get away for a bit.
First off, if you are looking for outstanding natural beauty and awesome, accessible hikes, South Lake Tahoe is perfect. The house is a short (15 min) drive to the beautiful Ecco Lake and Taylor Creek/Rainbow Trail hikes. The hosts also left directions for a great walk to the Truckee river right from the house.
We came to the S. Lake Tahoe Chalet with 4 children (all less than 3 years old), and 4 adults. We all had plenty of room. The kids loved the fenced-in back yard and the street was quiet enough that we felt comfortable letting them play in the front yard, too. The TV and game cabinets all have latches to keep them closed, so we didn't have to spend all our waking hours chasing the kids away from things and had an abundant selection of games and movies to choose from in the evenings. The hot tub was a nice way to unwind.
The check-out procedures ask you to wash, dry, and fold any used *beach* towels (the cleaners take care of the linens and bath towels), load and start the dishwasher, and empty all the trash, so plan accordingly. Our party realized this too late and were barely able to get things done and get out on time. (Doh!) But overall, it was a comfortable house and a great home base for our adventures.
Thank you so much for the amazing weekend. It was much needed and the house was the perfect setting. Beautiful!
The house was warm and welcoming, and we were pleasantly surprised by how spacious it is. There were 12 of us in total who stayed in the house for a weekend of skiing, and in spite of all of us and our gear, we never felt cramped. Amber and Nathan made us feel right at home by being very easy to reach by e-mail or text, and providing us with a great "to do book" and a guest book to sign and peruse through the former guests. The hot tub is huge and heated up quickly, providing a great way to relax our muscles after a day on the slopes. The beds were all comfortable, water pressure was excellent, and the fire was toasty - couldn't have asked for a better place to stay!
Thank you Ross 6 for providing such a great space for our family holiday! The Ross Chalet easily slept 8 of us, ages 4 to 70, with plenty of room to spare for hanging out without disturbing each other. The open plan kitchen/dining/living area, with the wood stove and the huge TV, was always occupied by someone cooking or playing Mad Libs or warming up by the fire, and there was privacy for those who were napping elsewhere in the house.
Spacious, comfortable, and well-equipped. Everything you could need was provided, all the details were thought through, and the place was pleasantly clean and tidy, with charming decor and a family vibe. The hot tub was immaculate, and everything from the grill to the coffee grinder was in proper working order. It's also worth mentioning to prospective guests who may be considering their options that this was a great value. During the busy season at Tahoe, many other hosts raise their prices to much higher levels for similar or even lesser accommodations.
The location was perfect for what we were looking for-- close to enough of a variety of resorts to keep skiers interested, and close enough to town to keep non-skiers busy. The hike down to the river from the house took us longer than most, since we had little 4 year-old legs to account for, but it was beautiful and twice as fun in the snow with little 4 year-old legs! Also want to put a plug in here for Wattabike, at the corner of Pioneer Trail and 50, behind the 76 station, for fixing my broken binding for $15 and giving me rentals for two days for $10! As well as taking the time to help us figure out which resort had the best conditions for us on a snowy day with 100-mph winds at the summits.
Not only were we celebrating Christmas and New Year's, but we had two grandmothers celebrating birthdays, and the Ross Chalet was the perfect place to make those family memories that I hope we'll still be harking back to when I'm the grandpa! Thanks so much again Nathan and Amber for being the consummate hosts, and I wish your family all the best in the future!
About the Host, Nathan And Amber
My wife and I are high school sweethearts that love great food, traveling and family. With four young children, my wife has been tasked to stay home and raise our children while I run our small business (Art Gallery and Toy Store) in Placerville (Old Hangtown), CA.
We grew up in Folsom, CA and after graduating from Azusa Pacific University in southern California, we were anxious to get back to a more reasonable pace of life in northern California to start our family.
Amber, a baker by love, has blossomed into a remarkable cook by necessity. Most weekends we entertain our friends and family with fun themed meals, great music and lively conversation.
Our 4 kids keep us busy, laughing, frustrated, confused, smiling, rolling our eyes, and continually trying to figure out the best way to raise them into amazing adults.
Amber and I have always loved traveling and real estate and look for opportunities to fulfill both loves. We have recently fallen in love with the beauty of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding mountain landscapes with vast forests, miles of trails and year-round activities. Only 1.5 hours from door to door, this seemed like the perfect getaway spot to build memories with our young family and enjoy with our friends. However, we cannot enjoy the chalet full-time, nor do we want to the burden of the entire mortgage :-) so we are excited to offer our little chalet with the "Smallest Pub in Lake Tahoe" to others that need a beautiful, comfortable, escape from the hustle and bustle of the city and the burbs. We hope you will take us up on our offer!!
