Overview

Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday lodge in Carson City - Tunnel Creek Lodge

6 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 14

Nestled in a secret corner of Incline Village, Nevada - on Lake Tahoe's north shore - Tunnel Creek Lodge is a step back in time, yet with all of today's modern conveniences and amenities. This luxurious rustic-modern log home features a spacious 4,200 square feet, and sleeps up to 14, with six bedrooms and four bathrooms. Sitting on 3+ secluded acres, this private residence boasts panoramic views of Lake Tahoe, making it an ideal location for family reunions, corporate retreats, romantic get-aways, special events, & more. We're sorry - but weddings, rehearsal dinners and/or receptions are no longer allowed on this property.

Tunnel Creek Lodge's exclusive and private setting - hidden away from the general public behind gated access - have made it a favorite get-away for the rich and famous for years. Impeccably decorated, the rustic-modern decor of this private rental log home will make you feel like you stepped back in time to over 100 years ago. Come experience the luxury - and history - of Tunnel Creek Lodge for yourself ...

Ideal for Family Reunions, Corporate Dinners, Special Events: The vast views of Lake Tahoe and surrounding High Sierra set the stage for your next special event. From family reunions, to anniversaries, fund-raisers and more, Tunnel Creek Lodge offers all the amenities you will need for a perfect day of celebration. The large lawn to the south of the property can easily accommodate up to 200 guests and just above the Lodge to the east is a smaller grass setting wrapped with granite rocks and Lake views for a more intimate event. As a destination location, Tunnel Creek Lodge has all the connections you may need to complete your special day including catering, florists, bands/DJ's, photographers and more. Feel free to contact the owners for complete information and professional assistance.

A Mountain Bikers, Snowshoer's Paradise: The vast acreage surrounding Tunnel Creek Lodge is a virtual playground beckoning to be explored. Just a stone’s throw from your private luxury rental log home, the world famous Flume Trail takes you around the North Eastern 'rim' of Lake Tahoe where views are nothing short of spectacular. And mountain biking is just the beginning. Bike rentals, trail guides and endless local insight is available through the property owners and their local biking buddies.

There’s no question why Lake Tahoe has been known for centuries at “America’s Year-round Playground”. Lake Tahoe offers more indoor and outdoor recreation than any other destination in the country. With some of world's most beautiful golf courses, biking and hiking trails, boating, kayaking, miles of sandy beaches, snowmobiling, cross country skiing, and 14 ski resorts, you'll want to save time for playtime.

Home, Home on the 'Ponderosa Ranch': A special feature about this Log Cabin is its connection to the internationally-famous Bonanza TV series. The property was part of the famous Ponderosa Ranch where Bonanza was filmed for many years and viewed by Cartwright fans from around the world. The views of Lake Tahoe remain just as breathtaking today as they have for years gone by.

While thousands passed through the nearby gates of the Ponderosa Ranch annually, few knew that behind a locked gate, just up the road, sat the private home Anderson carefully crafted to house his family. A few years later, his son chose to build his own luxury log cabin on a corner of the property with the most breathtaking Lake views. That home is now Tunnel Creek Lodge - and it available for you to enjoy, year-round. Today, it's one of the region's most exclusive locations for family reunions, anniversaries, corporate retreats and special events. For more information and party planning assistance, please contact us directly.

About The Owner

Craig & Liz Olson both grew up in Southern California - Craig, in the San Fernando Valley, and Liz, in Santa Clarita. Liz originally lived on her family's property in Agua Dulce, California, at Vasquez Rocks (now a County Park), where hundreds of films and TV shows have been shot for many years, including Bonanza, and Star Trek. You can ask Liz about her run-in with William Shatner, and how she inspired his love of horses, or about her role as a baby in the arms of Little Joe in old Bonanza episodes.

Craig and Liz have been visiting and enjoying Lake Tahoe together since 1989, and have made Incline Village their permanent home in 2011. They love Lake Tahoe, and enjoy sharing it with others - Tunnel Creek Lodge is a perfect way to share the beauty of the Lake Tahoe area with friends, family, and other visitors.

The Owner purchased this lodge in 2008

Why The Owner chose Nevada

We loved the beauty of the original 5 acre parcel, with the old 'bunkhouse' (former Ponderosa Stables, and now Tunnel Creek Station) below, and the modern, yet rustic log cabin perched at the top of the hill, overlooking beautiful Lake Tahoe and the mountains that surround it. As a mountain biker, Craig had passed the property countless times coming out of Nevada State Park after riding either the Rim or Flume Trail, and loved it being at the entrance to the park 'Just ride out of the driveway and onto the trail!'

Our stay at Tunnel Lodge was fantastic. Starting with Craig’s through introduction to the house and all the amenities, the great views, and the whole house exceeded our expectations. I would recommended it to anyone especially for a family reunion.

Exceptional home! Impeccably cared for!

  • 5 of 5

We spent four wonderful days with our family of 14 at the Tunnel Creek Lodge. Three generations, from age 5 to 72, fit perfectly and comfortably in this immaculately clean home. We all even fit around the dinning room table and prepared and ate every meal at home. The grounds and views were beautiful and with so much to do right on the property we hardly needed to leave but did to enjoy the beaches of massive Lake Tahoe. Thank you to Craig and Liz for their attention to detail and sharing this one of a kind home. We have stayed at several VRBO properties but I would rate this as the best.

An amazing place to stay to create lasting memories in Tahoe with friends and family

  • 5 of 5

Tunnel Creek Lodge was the perfect place to celebrate and create lasting memories in Tahoe with friends and family. The views were breathtaking, the home luxurious yet rustic, great amenities and close to everything but yet secluded. Craig was very communicative and helpful in touring the house and providing recommendation on activities, restaurants, etc. I would highly recommend it and return again soon!

Incredible House, Spectacular View

  • 5 of 5

Craig and Liz have made their home a true home for their guests. Everything you would want or need is provided. My family came from all over the country to join us for a week of skiing and just simply being together. These times are fleeting. Having this time at this house made it even more special. Everyday was a postcard.
