WELCOME TO THE RIPKE RETREAT.

Our Retreat is located in the center of all South Lake Tahoe venues. Minutes from the stateline casinos, Heavenly California base lodge, walking distance to the Ski Run Marina, and beaches. Close to bike trails and hiking. A Safeway market and the Bijou Golf Municipal Course are just three blocks west of our stunningly updated condo.

Due to a cancellation prime mid-August weekdays are now open! Please email your booking request as early as possible to secure the dates you want.

Experience accommodations that look and FEEL like Tahoe! Incredible golden pine cabinetry highlighted by mountain green trim. Just completed is our updated mid-bath shower and all-new pine interior doors. We opened up our entire kitchen space by removing the dining room wall. New granite countertops with all the appliances you need. We've also thought of "extra conveniences" like a Kuereg coffee maker, waffle iron, crock pot, toaster oven, coffee grinder, blender, extra coat racks, framed cable TV guides, programmable hotel safe, "Limelite" nite lights, and a high chair for our smaller guests. Pull out living room queen sleeper sofa allows us to sleep eight guests.

Just added..... We listen to our guest reviews! We just added new Leesa hybrid mattresses in two of our bedrooms, including a new Ca. king in our master. Experience added comfort and deep sleep like you have never experienced before! Wake up refreshed and ready for new mountain adventures every morning.

Enjoy stunning "Heavenly" Gunnbarrel ski run views from our master bedroom picture window. We feature Charter Spectrum high-speed internet and phone with free long-distance calls.

Our new Bavarian Village central hot tub seats up to ten, spacious heated pool (Memorial Day thru September), and updated central laundry room. The Ripke Retreat is perfect for weekend escapes, ski trips, casino getaways, family reunions, weddings, honeymoons, and extended stays (up to 30 days).

Please check our availability calendar BEFORE you inquire. Two-night minimum stay. Three-night minimum for all holiday stays. No pets, please.

Please note that the City of South Lake Tahoe now charges a $4.50 PER NIGHT Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT). The TOT tax will be reflected in your revised fee summary when you book.
