Heavenly Lookout Lodge
Nevada, United States
Our spacious, mountain-view Tahoe cabin welcomes large groups of up to 26 to an unforgettable, resort-style getaway. With over 6,500 square feet of living space, you’ll have plenty of room to sprawl out. Our home has 11 bedrooms so everyone has a place to lay their head. Parking for 7 cars (3 in garage and 4 in driveway; street parking not allowed).
The size of a house in itself, the 1,400-square-foot Great Room with a huge leather sectional is the perfect place for aprés-ski and board game/movie nights (the theater-quality flat-screen TV can help with that!). It's "game on" in the lower level family room: set up a billiards tournament on the high-end pool table. There’s also plenty of seating here, too, as well as a large-screen TV and a bar area. Cooking meals for your group is easy in the decked-out kitchen with two refrigerators, two ovens, and two dishwashers. There’s also plenty of prep space on the granite counters for young sous chefs to help out with meals. Our feast-worthy, 14-foot dining table provides plenty of seating with benches on both sides. A high-top table with a mountain-view backdrop seats eight more. If you need even more dining space, the kitchen island seats 10 on bar stools. Out on the deck, host summertime cookouts with a gas grill and picnic table with umbrella shade.
PLENTY OF SLEEPING SPACE
Leave the sleeping bags and air mattresses at home — with 11 bedrooms, the home sleeps 26 comfortably. Claim the master for yourself with its king bed and en-suite bath. Everyone else will rest easy, with 4 more king beds, 4 queens, and two twin-over-full bunk beds. All the rooms are decorated with tasteful rustic furnishings and hotel-quality linens. No need to create a bathroom time schedule: we have 6 full baths and 2 half-baths.
Like living in a private art gallery, the home is full of photographs showcasing the beauty of Tahoe. After a long day of skiing or hiking, sink into the indoor hot tub. With WiFi throughout, you can easily Instagram the incredible mountain views in front of you here. Other amenities include a washer/dryer, all bedding and towels, and a basic supply of household items like toilet paper, dish soap, and laundry detergent. We’re local and always available. You can depend on our excellent customer service to make your stay stress-free. Thanks to our talented housekeepers, you’ll always arrive to a clean and comfortable home.

We struggled to find a property that encompassed all our large family needs “rooms, large gathering place in the home , location, views of Lake Tahoe, large kitchen, & much much more - this house checked every box! Our multiple family gathering made a lifetime of memories! Thx
We stayed here for 5 nights, and I can't even begin to describe how amazing this house is!! It is brand new, and extremely nice. It's even better than the pictures!! Jim was amazing to work with. He was quick to respond to any questions we had, and very accommodating with our check in and check out. Everyone loved the fabulous great room and hot tub / sauna. We BBQ'd a couple nights and hung out playing games. You can tell they spared no expense when they built this house, everything is top of the line. The bedrooms are all very large with Tahoe style furnishings. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything you need. The kids loved being in their own space in the two adjoining bunk rooms. The house was stocked with enough toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap, and dishwasher detergent for the week. It was nice not to have to worry about getting any of that while we were there. The house was extremely clean, and they have a linen service so no need to wash all the towels and linens before you check out like some other places we have stayed. We can't wait to come back! Thank you Jim Richter!
I want to preface this review just so this doesn’t happen to anyone else but we were confused with the location of this home as the listing states a California address and the home is actually in NV, not the address listed on the listing or app. Do ask for the exact address and ensure you don’t drive to the location the app shows you as we did this! (Our mistake but a very easy mistake to make when using the app or VRBO address to get to the house, just ask the owner for the address and look it up in advance) That being said, once we had that straightened out and went to the correct home, on the NV side, we loved the home and had a wonderful stay! I would definitely recommend anyone to book this home, we had a group of 26 and there was ample space for everyone. The living area of the home is large and great for entertaining this many guests, also the sleeping rooms were all spacious and beds very comfortable. Home is beautiful, modern and we had a great stay. We are looking forward to staying here again in the summer time when it is a bit warmer. Loved the home and can’t wait to make it to the South Lake Tahoe area again!
I went as part of a work retreat. The house comfortable held 12 adults, and facilitated the corporate matters we were there to address. It was a great place to hold day-meetings and had enough in-house activities to let the guys unwind before bed. We had a lot of fun! I can definitely see us coming back in the future!
Jim's property provided the perfect setting for our 3rd annual snow trip. First and foremost, Jim was very responsive and attentive to our needs. He was very accommodating and made sure our stay was perfect from start to finish. The property was perfect for our friends and family, it was clean, spacious, and beautiful. The kitchen was beautiful and a chef's dream (my mother loved it!). Eating space was plentiful, always ensuring good food had good company. The game room and jacuzzi provided space for fun and relaxing amongst the group. The 11 rooms were more than enough for our party. To sum it up, Jim's property was perfect for our annual snow trip!!!!
20 of us stayed at this huge house for a weekend and we had the best time. There are plenty of beds and communal space for everyone. It's only a 5 minute drive to Heavenly and the casinos and the views and surroundings are gorgeous. Safeway is only a block away too!
We rented this beautiful home for a Christmas gathering for 18 of us. There was plenty of room and the craftsmanship of the house was awesome. The kitchen is a true gourmet kitchen with two of everything and it was pleasantly stocked with lots of pots and pans of different sizes, kitchen aid mixers, waffle iron, crockpot, ice machine, etc. The second dishwasher didn't work as well as the second microwave. The house is spread on 4.5 floors which is all tile - so, if you have young ones or elders, the stairs may present a challenge. There is only one bedroom with an en suite bathroom and no tubs in the house (there is one downstairs, but it is non-functioning). We gave kids baths in the kitchen sink! All in all it's a beautiful house, very clean, and the custom made kitchen table is fantastic. We were all able to eat our meals together at the same table. Beware that they take the 10pm noise rule VERY seriously. There are signs all throughout the house that no warnings will be given if there is a complaint. No big deal during the winter when it's too cold to be outside at 10pm, but during the summer, it would be nice to sit out on the deck and play cards or talk - and talking is forbidden after 10.
Our startup hosted our annual Tahoe retreat here. There wasn't a bad bedroom in the house and it was very comfortable for hosting our company for the weekend. We like to cook and the kitchen was well appointed with great equipment and counter space. The giant dining room table meant we could all eat together and two dishwashers made cleanup easy. There are two common areas in the house. The great room on the top floor was perfect for our engineers hacking away together on the couches. On one of the lower levels, there was a pool table and couch area which was perfect for playing video games. The house also includes a sauna and hot tub, so you have everything you expect from a house in Tahoe (though a bit unusual that the hot tub is inside the house). Plenty of bathrooms and we never ran out of hot water. Perfect for a large group that doesn't want to be split across two locations. Would book again.
The house was just as it looked in the photos! We are about a team of 20 people and the layout of the house was great. The house gave the feeling being private while also having the feeling of all being under one roof as a team because it had several floors with different pockets of the house. Everyone really loved the house and location. The house is really close to Heavenly and all the major activities, so we were able to split up into groups and do different activities. Jim was also really great and easily reachable throughout the whole time. If you're looking to do a team offsite in Tahoe, this is the house to book!
We hosted a total of 15 people here over Labor Day weekend for our wedding. It was magical: our guests all loved the quiet beauty of the location. It's in Zephyr Cove, with close public beach access just a bit to the north and the casinos just to the south. There is a grocery store (Safeway) less than a mile away. Bedding and towels were high quality, and the host was very helpful and quick to respond to questions. We're all looking forward to getting together here again!
This house was great for the 20 people we had staying for a wedding weekend at Edgewood Tahoe. Well kept, clean, and BIG! The 11 bedrooms and many bathrooms and indoor hot tub were enough for our group. The kitchen was awesome! Two of every appliance! #kitchengoals But, keep in mind, Tahoe's Noise Ordinance is a strict 10pm, although at this house, its more like 8:45pm. The owner stopped by to notify us that they received a noise complaint. I think they thought we were having the wedding at the house, which was not the case. Easily fixed by closing the windows, but it did warm up the house considerably. All in all, beautiful house for a large party and 3-5 min cab rides to Stateline. I would definitely recommend this property, but expect strict parking and noise regulations!
This place was great. Big and modern with all sorts of amenities. Very large bedrooms and super comfortable beds in every room. Yes there are 11 rooms and they are all appointed the same. The pool table, spa, and sauna were nice to have as well. The owner was very helpful working with us to meet every need we had. If you have a large group looking to stay in Tahoe I would highly recommend this place.
This Tahoe home was wonderful for our 3 generation family vacation for a week. The kitchen is so spacious and easy for multiple people to work in. The house has all the amenities you would hope for. The surrounding area offers many things to keep everyone busy. We biked, hiked, took a boat trip, paddle boarded, shopped, ate out, some went to the casino and we watched several sunsets on the beach. Everyone had a memorable time and want to go back again. We all highly recommend it!
My extended family of 18 people decided that a trip to Lake Tahoe would be a great summer getaway, and I had the task of finding us a home that could accommodate us. Knowing my family enjoys luxury and comfort, but also privacy, I knew I was in for a challenge. But lo and behold I found this beautiful home! The top floor consists of a huge living room, kitchen, and multiple dining areas. We never felt cramped when sharing meals together, and preparing meals was easy in the nicely appointed kitchen. There were two ovens, large cook top, two large refrigerators, a freezer, and even a stand-alone ice maker. I wish my kitchen had all that!! We had plenty of bedroom space and bathrooms, and there is a lot of available parking. The home is so lovely, my family hopes to make this getaway an annual event!! Thanks, Jim!
We had a great time there with 22 people. All had space and the kids enjoyed the sauna, spa and pool table. It was great to have the big kitchen and family room and plenty of bedrooms and bath rooms. It is a luxury home. Had the knives been sharp and the can openers functional and the ice maker making ice I would have given 5 stars. We loved it!
This house is perfect for large groups and does not spare on any detail. The huge great room was a great gathering spot and accommodated all 19 adults easily without feeling crowded. The location provided great views and an easy commute to Stateline for bars/casinos/etc. The hosts were accommodating to all of our needs and were easily available. Thanks again for an amazing experience, this property is a no-brainer if coming to Tahoe with a large group. Ken
We really enjoyed our Company retreat. The house provides a great layout for multiple couples and kids if you have those too. Plenty of privacy. We really enjoyed the kitchen, eating areas, hot tub and pool table. The kitchen was well stocked with appliances, spices and plenty of dishes/glasses. The only thing we found disappointing was the lack of a sharp knife and only one cutting board. The knives in the block were duller than butter knives! Overall a top notch house with beautiful finishes. We would definitely stay here again. Location is great, quick trip to the casinos, beaches and hiking trails.
The pictures aren't embellished... the house and furnishings look exactly the same. We had a 10 person business retreat and it was the perfect setting and atmosphere for a few days of business and relaxation. All of the appliances and fixtures worked perfectly in the house. We got a little lucky and had some light snow which added to the visit quite nicely. The location was perfect too; right near all the major restaurants, shops, etc. Easy to find. Owner/manager were very responsive and accommodating. Thanks for allowing us to stay in your home. HIGHLY recommend!
We rented this beautiful home for a company offsite, and were blown away. The home was very well done and well appointed. The kitchen was very well stocked, the beds were extremely comfortable, and it had plenty of entertainment space for our group. The location was also wonderful- just a short drive to everything near Heavenly. We were there during a 3-day blizzard, so that was beautiful, but couldn't enjoy the lake. Would highly recommend to others.
We stayed here for my 5 year old birthday and had 26 family members ranging from infants to seniors. The pictures listed do not do this home justice. The home is absolutely stunning and extremely clean/new. The kitchen was more than enough for our family to cook and store our food for the weekend. The 4 levels were a pain to walk but also helped separate our party so it was well worth it. Do not hesitate to rent this home. We've rented yearly in the area and this would be one of my top 3 rentals. If it had a indoor pool we may have never left. Thanks again JIM and KAREN!
Our group of 26 women spent 3 wonderful nights at this amazing home. As someone who used to rent vacation rentals as an owner and who currently rents them for my own vacations often, I feel comfortable saying that this is one of the nicest vacation rentals I have stayed in or seen. The home was immaculate when we checked in - clean and very well maintained. You can tell that the owners know what they are doing and take pride in their home(s). The level of finish (high quality) throughout really surprised me - everything was very well done - as nice or better than I would put in my own home: gorgeous leathered granite in the kitchen, beautiful light and bathroom fixtures, nice tiled showers, stone sinks, etc. The attention to detail in the finishes and decorating was impressive. This is a true luxury rental home and the description and photos, which are amazing, still don't do it justice. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this home or to stay in it again myself if I am in the Tahoe area. The only hesitation I would make would be in recommending the home to someone who has trouble with stairs (there are many as the home is on 4 levels) - there are, however, 2 bedrooms on the "main" floor that houses the main living room, the kitchen, and a deck, but there are still stairs to get into the home and up to that level. The owners were very responsive to any questions or needs we had, both before our arrival and during our stay. We had one tiny issue that we could not fix ourselves, but the owners took care of it quickly, professionally, and with a smile. They provided very helpful information on the area (shopping, grocery, dining and beaches very close!).
This is a beautiful house. Impeccable taste. Modern conveniences and classic simplicity. All that said, don't rent this property if you have poor balance, sweaty feet, slippery socks, no socks, gripping socks, or problems breathing. The four full flights of stairs were a surprise. I definitely burned off holiday calories. Also, for a house that sleeps so many...the owners were prepared with two coffee makers, but only 5 coffee mugs. Bring your own. Don't rent this property for a party weekend. The 10 curfew is enforced. Everything else was perfect.
Thanks for your review. We've added 20 coffee mugs after reading your review. Not sure where the others disappeared to... We also live nearby and can drop off such items. All of Tahoe has a 10pm noise ordinance (not curfew) and as we say, our neighbors need their beauty sleep. So thanks for reiterating that we do not want party groups! We've been offering Tahoe rentals for 16 years. My husband, Jim Richter of Richter Construction, has been building high-end homes for 25 years. This home was a total renovation project so we were able to design it and pick materials for a contemporary Mountain home, which at the same time would be able to be cleaned thoroughly for each guest. Thus we used hardwood floors and slate in the common, high traffic areas and carpet in the bedrooms. Our home offers 11 bedrooms encompassing 6500sf on 4 floors with bedrooms and baths on each floor. So bedrooms are spread out and private but only people on the lowest floor will have the advantage of getting their exercise in while on vacation!
Recently renovated as stated, this is a fantastic property located just a few minutes from Heavenly gondola, all the casinos, etc. If you have a large group, of ~20 or more people, this home is ideal! The sauna is much appreciated and necessary after a long day on the slopes and in the casino. Would recommend for a small company retreat, 2-4 families, a dozen couples, or just a large group of 16-20 individuals. Last but not least, the beds are heavenly...no pun intended. Miss the home already!
Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We greatly appreciate it. Of course it rained the day we had professional photos taken so we need to get a few new ones taken including the deck and views of the mountains/Heavenly. We look forward to having you back.
This lavish house, beautifully situated on the hills of Zephyr Cove, was a perfect property for our corporate retreat. The house was well maintained and ideally equipped to host a company over 20 people. We enjoyed this newly remodeled home with its vast kitchen, furnished with the top of the line appliances, beautiful cabinets, and gorgeous granite countertops. Its dining area was roomy enough for all of us to gather comfortably at the capacious table and enjoy our meals. Also, the unique hanging light fixtures with Edison bulbs created a nostalgic warm atmosphere, which we all appreciated. Additionally, we liked to spend time out on the deck that offered a glimpse of the lake and a snow-capped mountain tops. The bedrooms had comfortable beds with nice quality linens; bathroom were clean and tastefully decorated. Furthermore, we enjoyed the recreation amenities: the pool table area, spa, and sauna! Undoubtedly, we would recommend this property for a memorable getaway.
Just got back from a girls weekend with a little under 20 of us. The house couldn't have been more perfect for the large group! To begin with, the house was just as beautiful as the pictures suggest. We were all wowed when walking in...the house was really well remodeled and decorated. We cooked all of our meals in the gourmet kitchen. It was very well-equipped for our cooking needs. There were two of pretty much everything, which made it easy to prepare meals for the whole group. We spent a majority of our time sitting around the island drinking wine and eating, so really appreciated all the kitchen seating. The kitchen also had a bar height table which was great for playing games (lots of games already there in the closet!) One of the greatest things for us was that each of the bedrooms was nicely decorated with comfortable beds and nice sheets. The rooms were spread out on different levels so it allowed quiet and privacy for anyone wanting to relax while others were still up and having a good time. Location was perfect too...just a cab ride away from state line. All in all a great stay in a beautiful home. Definitely recommend!
