Your cozy private room is located downstairs at the front of the house just off the living room. It has a comfy double bed, dresser, speakers with auxiliary plug-in, a pretty cool collection of books, and brand new carpet & windows.
Since buying the home in April 2012, I've been busy painting rooms, replacing floors and creating an awesome outdoor oasis in the backyard. The hot tub is a great place to relax and soak in the mountain air year round. The deck is made from reclaimed redwood. The outhouse gives some 1950's Tahoe charm and now serves as wood storage for the backyard fire pit.
I have another guest room that I save for friends who like to come visit. So if you are looking for a romantic couples retreat you may be happier in a hotel room. This is by no means a party house but when old friends get together, good times usually follow.
Located ten minute walking distance to Heavenly Gondola and 15 to the Casinos. Five minute walk to Raley's shopping center with grocery store, coffee shops, art galleries, sporting goods and boutiques. Near Van Sickle state park, public transit, hiking/biking trails and beach access.
You are invited to share the bathroom, kitchen, living room and backyard. Make yourselves at home while you stay. One bathroom can be a challenge...asking if anyone else needs to get in there before taking a shower is a much appreciated gesture. You are welcome to use spices, condiments and cookware for all your cooking needs. And there is plenty of off-street parking in the driveway.
Usually I'm here while guests stay and I prefer when guests are cool and we all hang out. I'm a super social person and live here alone so AirBnB is a way for me to have roommates, if you will, on a temporary basis. So come up and hang out!
On the off chance I'm out of town...please know I'm bummed that I wasn't able to meet you.
I absolutely love being walking distance to so many awesome things...casinos, restaurants, nightlife, stores, beaches, hiking trails, etc.
Blue go has bus stops within a couple minute walk from the house and the main terminal is only a 10 minute walk away.
South Lake Tahoe has recently banned plastic bags at grocery stores. I have reusable tote bags in the laundry room that you are welcome to borrow. If you happen to have a bag monster in a closet or drawer at home and want to bring some plastic bags (grocery size preferred) up here they will be happily reused.
Also, I'm a certified massage therapist and have a massage room in the house. Massages are available by appointment. I work 4 jobs presently so if you think you might be interested, please let me know in advance so we can plan out a time.

Filled with the spirit of Tahoe...
Kristen and Jake! I have never met so kind and action people. It was one of the best weekends in my life. Cabin has great location (5min walking to Gondola and 10min to lake) surrounded with nice nature. I felt there as at home. We had also a lot of fun with Kristen and Jake, because they spent a lot of time with us (skiing, offroading, biking) so we felt there as residents. Thanks again!
We had such an awesome time at Kristen's, so glad we chose her place! Her house was super cute and cozy, the room we slept in clean & comfortable. But the best part of our stay was meeting Kristen and her friends! She treated us like good friends right off the bat and made us feel really welcome. Both nights we stayed there we had a really chill time hanging at the house with everyone while we lit up the BBQ, hit the hot tub, had some beers, sat around the fire pit and enjoyed the company. Everything we needed was in walking distance, although Kristen couldn't have been a more generous host. Really looking forward to staying with Kristen again!
Kristen is a really fun host, extremely helpful and welcoming. She knows all the great places to go and loves to socialise. Her place is great - very cosy and just a short walk to the ski slopes. All in all, a great Air BnBer.
Great cabin and awesome host. Felt very welcoming and safe.
House is well located, close to lifts and casinos. Kristen is friendly host. Enjoyed that hot tub in back yard. Comfortable bed.
Kristen was great. Had a blast hanging out w her and the other airbnb guest. Perfect spot to crash if you're getting up to the mountain or exploring south lake.
The place is as described and is perfect for someone willing to enjoy a ski day ( or more) in Heavenly ski resort. Kristen is a very nice person. The place is nice and the bed is very comfortable. I definitely recommend Kristen's place. I did not get to party with Kristen ; hopefully next time.
Anthony and I had an amazing weekend in Tahoe, made even better by Kristen's cute and comfy home complete with a hot tub (perfect for after a long day on the slopes)! Really enjoyed Kristen's company and relaxing in the spa with a cold beer.
Kristen is a great host with a great place in South Lake Tahoe. She is friendly and loves to spend time with her quests talking, drinking, cooking and making you feel at home in her cozy cabin. The room is nice, the bed is comfortable, the location cannot be beat and the hot tub in the woods, under the stars is a great way to spend your evening and after a long day on the slopes.
If you're looking for a nice place, walking distance to the gondola and most things in South Lake with a gracious and welcoming host, stay with Kristen.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
