About Vacasa of Lake Tahoe

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Awesome modern cabin experience

  • 4 of 5

Loved the grand living room, very open with tons of natural lighting. Gas fireplace is awesome. The kitchen is large and very open to prepare meals for a large group. Beds are very confrontable and inviting. Close to the ski area. Hill behind the cabin was great for sleding.

Minor cleaning issues, cobwebs in the upper windows and the kitchen, Refrigerator door needs attention. Steam marks above the Master bathtub on the ceiling. Cabin needs a new BBQ, It's on its last legs, it was functional and there was plenty of propane though. These are minor issues that can be fixed easily. We would stay here again.

Terrific house and stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at the Ponderosa. The house is special -beautiful, spacious and well cared for in a very nice neighborhood. There is plenty of room for you and your family. The house has everything you need for a great trip to the mountains. <br />

<br />

Vacasa rentals (who manage the rental) were also extremely responsive. Although they needed to change our house a few days before the rental, the alternatives they offered and the service they provided was superb- making switching houses simple and pain free. They answer the phone, are friendly, and helpful. They genuinely want to improve your stay. Great job!

Beautiful home. Excessive cleaning deposit in my opinion to simply change linens in comparable similar homes. Check out requests dishes washed, laundry started and garbage emptied. Personally we left it spotless. Would like to go back now that we know how to access key better but hopefully no bats guarantee and/or fee adjustment would balance that out.
