Overview

About the property

5 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 14

This spectacular, prize-winning executive home is on Lake Tahoe's South Shore. To reach the front door, one must enter into a great stone cavern formed by massive granite boulders under a sod roof. The end of the fifty by thirty-five foot living room is formed by a single stone. In the center of this great room lies another boulder and a mossy trout pond. This brings indoors the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape, patios, and lawns. Two gigantic fireplaces rise and pass through the room's twenty-three foot ceiling. Overlooking all of this are two sweeping, curved balconies which provide additional views of the mountain peaks and green forests that have made the Tahoe Basin world famous.

'Stonehenge' is a beautiful vacation home built on a rocky ridge overlooking the woods and meadows of Tahoe Valley and the crest of the snow-capped Sierra Nevada. It is located at the edge of the El Dorado National Forest and no house or rooftop, nor street or wire, mar its magnificent view.

The end of the 50 by 35 foot living room is formed by a single stone. In the center of this great room lies another boulder and a mossy trout pond, bringing the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape, patio and lawns inside. Opposite the living room's glass solarium is the dining room, breakfast corner and tiled kitchen. Two gigantic fireplaces rise and pass through the room's 23 foot ceiling. Overlooking all of this are two sweeping, curved balconies which provide additional views of the mountain peaks and green forests that have made the Tahoe Basin world famous. Each bedroom is decorated with a unique and distinctive decor, the Greek Myth room, the Timberline room, Tyrolean, Mediterranean and Wildlife room. The unusual Austrian-styled 'Strube' has its own stucco fireplace and provides a separate hideaway for games or intimate conversation. A library contains books and memorabilia gathered in travels to distant parts of the world.

Mountain climbers who sometimes scale the boulders near 'Stonehenge' acclaim its distinctive setting, intimate and blending with the environment, isolated, yet only five minutes from the center of town, elegantly styled but with a homespun sort of warmth. WEDDINGS, PARTIES, AND OTHER ACTIVITIES ARE NOT ALLOWED. ONLY 14 PEPLES DAY OR NIGHT.

Unforgettable

  • 5 of 5

Rosmarie, thank you for your hospitality and creating this beautiful house. We really enjoyed staying here and it made our family weekend that much more enjoyable.

For people looking for more info; 'Stonehenge' is the most memorable vacation house I've ever rented. The house was built on top of natural boulders with a small stream running beneath them. The 5 bedrooms all surround a huge open great room, with two large boulders inside and an enormous fireplace. Small reading nooks, couches, and game rooms surround the boulder in the great room and are perfect getaways to read, play games or just sit and talk. The kitchen was well stocked, not super updated, but worked perfectly. We used both dining tables to fit our group of 12, but it worked well and we could all still talk to each other and mingle.

This house is perfect for a group that is looking for something different than your normal Tahoe cabin. I'd especially recommend for when the weather is nice as the house has a spacious yard with BBQ, Hot Tub, outdoor seating and many more boulders to play on.

Note - I would not recommend this home for families with infants who need to crawl or elderly who have trouble walking. There are lots of stairs, uneven surfaces and places to trip or fall.

Some day, years from now our children and grandkids will be back at Stonehenge. The place is spectacular with all the toys and tools any one could use. We love it!

One of the most fun rentals we've ever stayed in

  • 5 of 5

This place is just magical. sits on top of a hill view unbeatable views right out your back door. we stayed with two other families and our kids were always outside climbing on the rocks and exploring. You'll be hard pressed to find a funkier house than this one. Dishwasher broke while we were there and the owner, who always made herself available, had a repairman there the next morning to fix the problem. She also recommended that we go to Angora Lakes while we visited Tahoe. We did - and you should too! Highly recommend this hidden gem.

A great trip!

  • 5 of 5

We really had a great time at Stonehenge. We were travelling with our adult children and grandkids, ages 2-8, and it was perfect for us. The kids loved all the unique, natural features the home and property offers, It was fun to watch for the chipmunks and rabbits to come by in the morning, and there were lots of rocks to climb. The views were phenomenal, and we couldn't help but wonder what it looks like in the winter. For us, the trip was really about spending time with our grandkids and giving them a place to stay that they will never forget. Rosmarie was very responsive and accessible when we had questions before our trip. I loved the family touches inside. We truly enjoyed our stay. Thank you so much!

Beautiful home, beautiful view, and great experience

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I go on a yearly cabin/snowboarding trip and decided to stay in Tahoe this year. Everyone loved Stonehenge; it was very large and spacious with beautiful architecture and decorations. The yard is HUGE and windows made for a great way to wake up in the morning. Rosmarie is also very quick with getting back to requests for any help. Thanks for the great stay!
