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.
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, a corn hole set, hammock, 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.

We absolutely loved Colleen & Alton's place! It was comfortable & well provisioned for our stay , proximate to SLT and felt like it was well loved. We enjoyed the winter stay and are making plans to go in the summer & enjoy their place then. We will be back!
Place was pretty much as advertised and fit the bill quite nicely for a quick weekend trip to Tahoe. Much better than a hotel for that price and hosted two couples + another just fine! Would come again.
We stayed at the Chalet and it was wonderful! The beds were nice and the hosts were up front with all the information that we needed. We were fortunate not to need any, but there were ice packs and ice cubes ready in the freezer, too, as well as plenty of towels and toiletries. That's just an example of how thoughtful the setup is. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks Colleen and Alton!
Great place! Wonderful hosts... responded promptly, were generous with the time at the cabin. Very clean and cozy place. Very close to Heavenly ski resort. Loved our stay there! Would stay there in a heartbeat! Thanks Colleen and Alton.
On top of her well located, very nice cabin, Colleen was very hospitable! I would definitely stay again.
The chalet is at a great location, close to Heavenly. The kitchen is well stocked and the bathrooms are full of supplies. 4 of us had a great stay and would come back again.
We loved Colleen and Alton's chalet. It was the perfect place for us. The pictures do not do it justice. We plan to come back again soon. Thanks for a memorable stay. We are most grateful.
Working with Colleen was extremely easy and pleasant. All the details of the chalet were provided couple of days before our stay.
Chalet is located very conveniently. You can walk to many of the good places to eat.
Will definitely recommend to others.
We loved the location of the house, being so close to walking trails and the lake. The kitchen was very functional (we cooked all of our meals at the house) and the beds were very comfortable. Colleen was very responsive in our email communications and helpful in answering questions.
Pros - location, location, location - close to LTCC, beach, meadow/well-supplied kitchen and bath/extra half bath is very convenient/owners very available.
Cons- dark interior, beds too hard for my taste/no good outdoor eating solution/minor maintenance issues which we worked around.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
