*Tahoe is a beautiful and fun place to visit, but occasionally this area can be affected by extreme weather events.  While we never want things like icy roads, road closures, or smoke from wildfires to negatively impact our guests, it can happen. We ask travelers to plan their vacation appropriately for the rural mountain climate and encourage guests to research all travel insurance options, as Tahoe Moon Properties cannot provide refunds for things outside of our control.  

Snowflower Lodge is a magnificent North Lake Tahoe vacation home nestled on Tahoe's coveted West Shore on its own large secluded parcel. This North Shore vacation rental sits in an ideal location, just minutes from Tahoe City.  Situated amongst towering pines on multiple acres of undeveloped land, Snowflower Lodge allows for hiking, mountain biking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling minutes from the home.  This vacation lodge is dog-friendly and its ample trails and wooded areas nearby will keep furry friends and their owners entertained for days.
In the summer months, Snowflower Lodge is just a short drive or a bike ride from the West Shore lakefront, beach access, boat ramps, and kayak or boat rentals.  For winter sports enthusiasts, Homewood Mountain Resort is less than ten minutes by car, and Alpine Meadows Ski Resort and Squaw Valley USA are approximately a 15-minute drive.  This North Tahoe home is minutes from many Lake Tahoe staples including Sunnyside Restaurant and Resort, Tahoe House Coffee Shop and Bakery, The High Sierra Water Ski School, and the Tahoe City bike path which runs for miles down the West Shore and all the way to Squaw Valley USA.  Countless restaurant options, nightlife, entertainment, and shopping are all less than 3 miles away in Tahoe City. Important, this property does not have air conditioning.  Air conditioners are extremely unusual in North Lake Tahoe.

This large Lake Tahoe home is beautifully furnished to accommodate many guests, with its 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and a den. Snowflower Lodge includes a large two car garage and plenty of driveway parking as well.  A large living room looks through expansive windows out onto the back deck and the surrounding Tahoe forest.  The living room offers a large comfortable sectional couch and 3 bean bag chairs ( fun for kids!).  A flat-screen TV with steaming  capabilities will keep you entertained. High-speed internet access is available from the comfort of your living room as well. Downstairs you will find a secluded hot tub on its own private deck.

Accommodations include two master suites equipped with high-quality linens and furnishings.  The master suite upstairs includes a king bed, beautiful master bath, and a large walk-in closet.  A private master suite downstairs offers a queen bed, direct access to a small private deck with hot tub, and views of the surrounding forest.  A large kitchen upstairs is beautifully laid out around a central island beyond which sits a sunny dining area. The dining room table will seat 8 comfortably, with extra room for smaller children if necessary.  The kitchen is well equipped to prepare meals for large families or groups and offers new appliances and a walk-in pantry.

This is a dog-friendly house but in order to bring a dog, you must pay a $70 dog fee per dog, 2 dog maximum.  If you bring a dog without paying the dog fee, you will be subject to a fine and are in breach of contract which could result in being asked to leave the property.

Better than the photos!
We loved our stay at this house! It was the first time I've found the actual property to be nicer than the photos looked when we booked. The location was close to Homewood and Palisades, as well as several sledding places for kids. We also were able to create a few sledding hills right next to the house as it's on a hill. The check-in was seamless and we were very pleased with the communication from Nicole at Tahoe Moon during the huge storm which caused quite a few roadblocks for everyone. We shared the stay with one other family and the size is perfect for multiple families to stay- plenty of games, large table and kitchen to cook in and a great new hot tub. I'd definitely stay there again!

5 stars (maybe 6)
Combination of the city, snow, and overall feel of the cabin makes you feel like you're in a Christmas movie. Would recommend to anyone.

Overall would definitely stay again!
We came with a group of friends to spend New Year's in Tahoe - loved staying at this property. There was plenty of room for our group of 12, which included 8 adults and 4 children. Bunk room was great for the kiddos, only down side was having to tiptoe through the bunk room to get to the hot tub since it was winter and too cold to get there from the outside stairway. Plenty of hot water and good internet access, plus a Roku for Netflix and Hulu. The wood-burning stove was a plus! Some of the cookware was a bit old, but there were plenty of pots/pans and cooking utensils. When we had a question about the "bear fence" (not a common implement where I live), I called the office and left a message, which was returned almost immediately by the very responsive and friendly staff. Would recommend bringing snow chains in the winter, as the downhills can get a bit slick in the neighborhood during heavy snowfall. Overall would definitely stay again!

We had an excellent time in this great property. Lots of space for everyone and the home felt very clean.
We had an excellent time in this great property. Lots of space for everyone and the home felt very clean. We found fun DVD's to watch and good books to read. One thing- if you plan on having guests stay in the extra area where there are a few foldout couches, there's no extra blankets so bring your sleeping bags, also the foldout beds are typically not so comfortable. But we'd come back here for sure!

The house is perfect for large groups and super clean!
“The house is perfect for large groups and super clean! The stove top isn't gourmet, but we made everything we planned. Walked to the lake in no time.”

We had a great time staying in the home on Snowflower Lane
“We had a great time staying in the home on Snowflower Lane. The house definitely provided enough space and entertainment options for our two families, was clean, and a nice bottle of wine was a very thoughtful touch to be greeted with upon arrival from a long drive from the bay area. We were lucky we could book on such short notice! Our kids loved playing ping pong and foosball, and parents were able to relax in the tub after playing xmas carols on the piano! Also, lots of really great hiking out in the woods behind the house. Thanks for hosting us!”

Beautiful location, gorgeous view with a brand new hot tub. ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆
I really enjoyed my birthday weekend at this property. The accommodations were nice, although the house was a little run down. The owners had lots of games and a fully stocked kitchen with all the cookware and tools needed to prepare food for many people. I slept in the master bedroom and slept great. The hot tub was clean and new and worked great.

Amazing stay ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We had an amazing stay here for Thanksgiving. The location of the house is great. Easily accessible from the freeway, close to the stores and the ski resorts. The house has plenty of room and well equipped. We will definitely come back!

Snowflower- Large cozy cabin ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
This was a very spacious cabin that easily accommodated our family. There were plenty of activities provided that kept everyone busy when not out hiking. We loved sitting out on the deck in the mornings and the evenings. We also loved the hot tub in the open air. The rooms were very comfortable and the views from the rooms amazing. We would definitely recommend this cabin and hope to return again sometime soon.

Good house, great location
The house was great, more open and spacious than the pics can show. It could use some little upkeep, but all in all pretty good. The location was great, right by a nice pebbly beach that wasn't ever very crowded. The hot tub was awesome too, very nice and clean. It had one issue, but upon calling the owners it was fixed immediately the next morning.

Snowflower Lodge
We stayed over New Year's Eve and had a wonderful experience. The super long kitchen table hosted all of our meals and our group was comfortable and the house was clean. The kitchen was easy to cook in and the way the house is situated you feel as is you are surrounded by the forest. Beds and multiple rooms were very comfortable. There were a few issues: -kitchen desperately needs a big pot for soup and pasta. I even went out to try to buy one but did not have luck. -the hot tub entrance was iced over and very slippery and dangerous. We would have used the hot tub more if it had not been for that issue. -the TVs need to be updated. The one in the game room did not work which was unfortunate because half of our group was teenagers who could have played video games there. The TV in the family room was OK but there is not enough seating for everyone to watch. There is enough room in that area but you need more seating. Other than those three issues we loved the house and will definitely return and rent again.
