Property Description

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.

Unique place


My family and friends were so excited when they stepped into the house and we had a great time! It is a truly unique place and we enjoyed every moment in there. We especially loved the outside and backyard area. Super beautiful! The house has an awesome set up with sweet little details. It was clean and the beds as well as all the seating and chi...

Great place to stay! We did have a bear visit the kitchen overnight and raided the fridge!


Beautiful property, wonderful owner to work with. Could use some updating. Well worth the money though. We did have a visit from a bear that slid a window open and stole pizza out of the fridge! The rangers who came to the property the following morning were well aware of him, he was a repeat offender! We knew we were in his territory and no harm w... Read More

Crazy owner


This house is quirky and different with a beautiful yard. It's a little outdated and off the beaten path, but a one of a kind location. I read the reviews and thought it was perfect for what I was looking for to have a dinner party with my parents and in laws, as well as a place for my parents to stay. I spoke with Rosemarie several times asking... Read More

The property does need some updating, especially the eave over the front door and the exit on the ba


The views are spectacular but couldn't understand why "quiet hours" began at 9:00. The premises were very clean and we would recommend this property to friends.
