Description

Nestled at the end of a cul-de-sac amid towering pines is a special gem of a home, Woodland Lodge. As the name evokes, it is set in a beautifully wooded area with expansive windows throughout that frame the views and seem to bring the sunny outdoors right inside. It is warm and welcoming with an open living area anchored by a large stone fireplace that you can cozy up to on cool winter nights.The four bedrooms are well appointed and so comfortable. Just outside is a wrap-around deck that is well suited to lounging and enjoying this tranquil setting with family and friends while savoring your morning coffee. You will find the bubbling hot tub is a welcome refuge at the end of a busy day to soothe tired muscles from winter skiing or summer biking. This home is centrally located and within a short distance to world-class recreation, entertainment and shopping. It is truly a special place you will want to return to again.

Wonderful Property!
5
Dates Stayed: 
July 2020
This wonderful property is ideally located and great for families. It's only about 2-3 minutes off of 28. In about 20 minutes or less (in the summer) you can be in King's Beach, Incline Village, or Tahoe City. The house itself is beautiful. With large/high windows in the living room/main area, you feel like you are in a tree house. There's plenty of privacy being situated on a court. The lower level serves as the main living space with a wraparound deck. The gas fireplace is also a very nice touch. We had 5 adults and 2 infants/toddlers and it did not feel cramped. We were able to easily play cards and eat dinner outside or inside. The four bedrooms are all on the upper level which was great having two young children that go to bed quite early so the adults can keep having fun. There are two bedroom suites with their own bathrooms. The master suite has a luxurious spa-style bath. All 4 rooms have generous closet space and storage for any extended stays. My family and I stayed for a week and had no problem housing all of our clothing, food, and equipment. Tahoe Luxury Properties did a terrific job serving as our point of contact. They were very helpful responding to inquiries and answering very specific questions. The instructions/guides on the property are very clear and useful. The checkout process was also very light and easy. We felt very fortunate to book this property for a week during peak season in Tahoe. It greatly exceeded our expectations.
Perfect stay for the Christmas Holiday
5
Dates Stayed: 
December 2019
This is a lovely home nestled in the tall pines. It is a short drive to restaurants, grocery and Squaw Valley for skiing. It was perfect for our family of 6 adults. The Kitchen is well stocked with every glass, plate, silverware, pot and pan you can imagine. Our only suggestion is to add one additional chair for seating in the family room and remove/or replace the rug - it is curling up and a trip hazard.
Best Stay in Lake Tahoe Area

Dates Stayed: 
December 2019
Woodland Lodge was exactly as pictured. Very spacious and organized space. It has everything we needed. We cooked all our meals, and felt like home doing it. The house itself is nicely located, no other houses really close, it was quiet and peaceful our whole stay. So far this was our best stay in Lake Tahoe area. Thanks!
Absolutely Stunning!
5
Dates Stayed: 
December 2019
This place is absolutely stunning and was a great stay for my friend's birthday weekend. The keypad switch to get the key out when checking in can be a little sticky, but other than that everything was great. It snowed a bunch during our time there, so we were happy that snow shovels and salt were provided for when the time came to boogie on out of there. I do kind of wish they would keep communication isolated to airbnb instead of having to install a separate app, but it's not too much of an inconvenience.

Absolutely loved this property! Great, semi-secluded location and beautiful home. The bedrooms were all a great size & the bathrooms are very nice. Short drive to the lake, beaches, parasailing, kayaking, and ropes courses. Self Check in was easy and convenient. Hot tub was our favorite part! Thanks for an awesome week!

Great Stay! Beautiful views! Hot Tube and Grill worked like a champ. We had 6 guests and everyone had an amazing time. Internet and cable services worked great so we could watch the Warriors game. Oh yeah, a great Pinot Noir as a gift when we entered was just what we needed. Would definitely stay here or with Tahoe Luxury Properties again.

A great place, would rent again. Just a couple updates they should do including smart TV's. TV's were really outdated and difficult to use with multiple remotes and long instructions-- just wanted to play a family movie and struggled forever! had DVD/BluRay but no DVD's to use ( just one)-- I called host and they brought me a Roku promptly which was much easier. A few light bulbs didn't work and blow drier wouldn't work in master bathroom ( but would work in other bathrooms! weird) -- these are all minor things and the place was exactly as described with nice clean hot tub and fresh linens and good washer and drier!! Close to all ski mountains and we had a great time.
Amazing!

This place is awesome for a group of people. Tons of space and room for 6-8 people. We loved the location, it’s closed to everything which made it easy to access when we need little things. The only downside I would say is that since it’s a cabin with 2 story, and if you stay downstairs. You can hear everyone walking around upstairs or in the kitchen once they are awake. Other than that this place is great! I would definitely recommend it to friends and family!

Wonderful stay with friends this past weekend. Although the home is on the hill, we all felt close to the lake at all times. The best part was walking on heated floors in the bathroom.

The house is beautiful. My guests and I spent a very comfortable and enjoyable weekend there. The location is great, close enough to the city, but still quiet and peaceful. The host was thoughtful, replied fast and effectively to all my questions and was also very accommodating of our needs. Would definitely recommend and rent again.
Awesome Week

Great week in this lovely home! Great location - in between Tahoe City & Kings Beach. Hiking trail head is just a quick walk up to the end of Nightengale - so awesome! Kitchen had everything that we needed for a week's stay and cooking in our meals. Bedroom/Baths were great! As previous reviews noted, the only downside was the living area is kind of small - hard for our party of 8 to sit around and watch movies. Deck is narrow, so hard for even 4 of us to sit around the outdoor table.

The home was very private, at the end of a cul-de-sac with surrounding homes a distance away. The quality of the home was high end and there were ample supplies. Only negative was that the house was slightly smaller than the pictures portrayed. As always Tahoe Luxury Properties (rental management company) was a pleasure to work with.

What a wonderful vacation in an awesome location! Every amenity we needed was provided and TLUXP were super responsive. Our group felt very much at home. I would definitely recommend Woodland Lodge to anyone staying in the area.

Beautiful place, very nice, spacious and clean. Would recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay in Tahoe. It’s only about 10 mins drive away from Kings Beach and close to other attraction spots. Thank you for having us, we had a good time. Looking forward to booking with you guys with our next getaway.

Just as described. Enjoyed the place. Could have just hung out at the house if surroundings weren’t so great. Could use more seating by the TV. ​ ​ A recliner would be nice.
Enjoyed Both House and Surroundings

The host made us feel so welcome. It was a seamless process to enter the cabin and we were greeted with wine and treats for my dog. The description was accurate. It was beautiful, clean, and overall a wonderful experience. We will definitely come back again!

First vacation rental I've stayed in that I didn't want to clean upon arriving! We had two families of four stay very comfortably. The house feels like it is far out in the woods with woodland views from every window. Tons of sheets and towels and a very well stocked kitchen. Deck and hot tub were used daily. Would stay again!
