About Melanie McDonald
As an avid snow and water skier, mountain biker & road cyclist, I fell in love with North Lake Tahoe many years ago while I was part of the Alpine Meadows Ski Patrol. I grew up skiing in New England - let's just say Tahoe is a pretty special place! The west shore is amazing - incredible mountain biking, road cycling and hiking right from the house - and on the backside of Alpine Meadows (Sherwood Chair) in the winter. On big snow days you can ski down Ward Valley Road back to the Lodge... If you haven't accessed Tahoe in the Spring and Fall - you are missing something special - GREAT weather and SMALL crowds! I've recently relocated to the East Coast for work, but Britton (my son) and I come back often - what used to be a full time second home for us is now (also) a wonderful vacation get away shared by people from all over the country and world - pretty cool. I'm excited about "sharing" the Lodge - it's a great property in a terrific location. There's even a neighborhood playground and tennis courts just a short walk away. Sunnyside resort is just a quick walk too. Always happy to help with trail, cycling and "secret powder stash" locations and information, if you have the desire - or you can just kick it in the hot tub or game room. Psyched that so many of you have come back - welcome to the family! Have a blast - it's what Tahoe and Lippe Lodge are all about. Best, Rob

Very neat and clean with all that was stated in the VRBO site.
Everything we needed was there. Fully stocked with all very nice pots and pans, utensils, towels etc. It was as if the family had stepped away and we were their guests. We truly could have just taken our clothes and food. Very comfortable home.
Lippe Lodge is a wonderful place to stay!
From the moment first requested an opportunity to visit Lippe Lodge, we felt like cherished guests. Rob, his family, and Melanie took great efforts to make sure we felt welcome and to make sure the home was ready.
The heat was turned up to make our arrival more comfortable, and we found a handwritten note and some treats on the dining room table that made our arrival that much more welcoming.
The home itself is well decorated, easily slept our crew of five, the home can easily accomodate far more guests. Of special mention, the kitchen is extremely well furnished and had EVERYTHING we could possibly need. Not only that, but the utensils were very high quality! You could very easily host a holiday gathering at Lippe Lodge.
While the Tahoe area offers a wealth of activities, we also found plenty to do in and around the home including billiards in the game room, board games, and we enjoyed horse shoes in the yard.
We can’t wait to visit Lippe Lodge again!
Solid Tahoe Cabin weekend
Really great stay... we had a full house of people (10-13ppl) and we had plenty of room. Spa was great, horseshoes in the front yard was also a lot of fun. Great location and great stay.
Great house, great location! We’ll be back !
Cabin exceeded expectations and owner was easy to work with. Great Patio...
Summer family fun!
We had a wonderful week at the Lippe Lodge! The house is spacious and cozy. The deck and hottub are wonderful. Our children and grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed it. We always love the location which is close to the beach and restaurants! Thank you Melanie for sharing your home with us!
