Live like a local - The Historic Palisades Cabin in Squaw Valley - North Shore Lake Tahoe

Take a dream vacation at our Squaw Vacation Home...

The Historic Palisades Cabin was one of the first private homes built in Squaw Valley. In 1952 Wayne Poulsen, the founder of Squaw Valley, designed and constructed this mountain home by himself.  In Wayne Poulsen’s time the Palisades Cabin stood alone in a field of grassland looking over the unspoiled Squaw Valley Meadows and the majestic Squaw Valley mountains. Today, the Historic Mountain Cabin still remains as one of only 600 homes within exclusive Squaw Valley. Solid hewn beams, wide plank floors, and pristine views of Squaw Valley mountains await guests standing in the cabin’s sunny living room. The large windows and French doors of our special vacation home look out onto the Squaw Valley Meadows, the mountain peaks and the Squaw Valley ski slopes.  Expansive outside wooden decks and a private patio open the cabin from every room to the the great outdoors. Our historic mountain home vibrates with tranquility and privacy. Surrounded by beautiful pines, the cabin is situated within a lovely alpine garden, tucked away and private, yet it is within walking distance to the Squaw Valley Ski Village and the heart of Lake Tahoe.  After a day of fun and adventure, our private Squaw Valley neighborhood provides a little vacation solitude amidst all of Lake Tahoe’s outdoor opportunities. Spending time in the Historic Palisades Cabin offers the possibility of our guests to gradually connect with the untamed beauty of Lake Tahoe and the history of Squaw Valley. Here our Tahoe visitors can feel in harmony with nature, rest their body, rejuvenate their soul and truly live like a local.
