About this listing

The ideal Tahoe spot summer or winter, our adorable 2 bedroom / 1.5 bathroom chalet is just blocks from Lake Tahoe and beautiful meadows yet you are still under 3 miles to Stateline and Heavenly Mountain Resort. There is a queen bed in each room and a full Jennifer Convertible sleeper sofa in the living room.
We gave the chalet a mini face-lift in 2013 - complete with 2 large flat screen HDTVs, cable, wifi, rain forest shower-head, brand new memory foam mattresses, and down comforters. For outdoor fun we have a new grill, loads of outdoor seating, a corn hole set, and 2 bikes.
The kitchen is stocked with all the essentials and there is even a washer and dryer. There is a carport and mud room for storing your gear. There is no AC (standard for Tahoe) but there is ceiling a fan in each room and one in the main living area.
*Please note the half bath is actually a "water closet". It has a toilet and small sink. It is mini but totally functional.*
Our neighborhood, Al Tahoe, is rare in that it is on the lake side of Hwy 50 / Lake Tahoe Blvd. You will wake up feeling like you are worlds away, but you are just walking distance to Regan Beach, El Dorado Beach, the Upper Truckee Marsh, Paddle Board rentals, and some great cafes and sandwich shops.
Also, thought I would mention a few of the items we try to keep stocked so you don't buy or bring anything extra.
We are well stocked on linens and pillows. In the room with the purple curtains you will find an extra down comforter, extra blankets, and few extra sets of sheets (they are marked "full" for the sofa bed and "queen" for the bedrooms).
Under the bathroom sink are extra towels and wash cloths. For the beach and boating there are extra towels in the bin in the mudroom. Please do not use the bath towels.
In the cabinets above the stove you will find:
Sugar, coffee filters, powder creamer, tea. 90% of the time there is actual coffee. There is also olive oil, salt and pepper and various random spices and hot sauces.
In the fridge there is a new Brita pitcher (no need for water bottles) and various condiments. Our cleaning lady tosses anything that looks suspect but usually you will find butter, mustard, ketchup, oil and vinegar . . .
In the living room you will find an iPod / iPhone docking station for some tunes, a dvd player along with an assortment of dvds and cds, and playing cards, uno, chess, jinga, dice ....
In the bathroom drawer there are various toiletries from shampoo to toothpaste to qtips in case you forget anything. The hair dryer is under the sink in the small bathroom and there is a steamer in the bedroom closet.
My favorite part - In the shed you will find a corn hole set, a hammock, and 2 bikes and various other supplies. Bikes are Men's 18" trek mtn bikes - great for cruising in the meadow. There are helmets (safety first) and a bike lock. There is also a grill on the deck and extra chairs for lounging.
Bath Towels, Extra Sheets and Comforter, Grill, Bikes, Yard Games, Beach Chairs, Coolers.
Kitchen has basic spices and some breakfast snacks.

Loved this cozy house by the Lake! All the amenities of being right at home. Super easy to find, navigate around town and enjoy your time. Thanks for making it so easy and comfortable for us!
That was our 3rd visit. That says how much we love your place. Collen thanks for using your bikes we had so much fun. My son prefers your place to Disney Vacation. Thanks again. Your Lena, Alex and Jacob. Congrats on your new baby.
It was as cozy as the name states it is. We loved how quiet the neighborhood was and that we did not have to go far to get to the lake. It was great waking up in the morning and reading on both the front and back decks. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a quiet place to stay in Lake Tahoe.
Me and my guests loved the chalet. Very cozy. Very silent.
When we arrived everything was very clean: the house, the towels, the linens...
The shower was amazing.
We loved the outside area. It was nice to have our breakfast and our BBQ there with the trees.
The chalet has everything you need. It is a well-stocked place. And Colleen was very considerate and also gave us a lot of good tips.
The chalet has a very good location. Walk distance to the lake, to a very beautiful meadow and some restaurants and shops.
But the most good surprise for us was that the master bedroom had a half bathroom. As we were in 06, we were worried about only one bathroom, but worked so well.
We had very nice moments there.
For sure we will come back again to this house.
We spent a weekend with our 2 young kids. Great place and location.
The Chalet has nice bedrooms and is well furnished.
The deck and grill were perfect.
I definitely recommend it for a family.
My family enjoyed the stay in the chalet very much. It almost has everything we need. Hope we can spend more days there. Highly recommend to everyone! Especially the secret meadow around the corner.Fantastic!
We loved our stay at the Cozy Chalet on South Lake Tahoe! The location was great (nestled between the lake, marsh and shopping/eating) and accommodations were clean and homey (and as described). Colleen was a clear communicator and promptly replied to messages regarding house essentials, as well as local tips.
We'd happily stay here again.
About the Host, Colleen + Alton
I'm a Georgia girl gone Californian. And my husband is a New Yorker rounding out his edges on the West Coast. We love San Francisco and Tahoe and have charming homes in both. We feel very blessed to have small pieces of paradise in the city and mountains and are excited to share them with others.
We've tried our best to make our homes comfortable for guests. They are by no means extravagant, but we've found little things like - lots of hooks for coats and towels, warm cozy blankets, nightstands with lamps, and some basic spices and olive oil in cabinet - can make a big difference after a day of adventure.
Welcome + Enjoy!
Colleen + Alton
