I noticed that an earlier reviewer complained about the little windows near the top of the door, so I paid attention to that when we arrived and realized someone would have to be at least 7 feet tall to see in those windows from outside the room. :-)

The heat worked well and there were extra blankets too. It's in a very convenient location for skiing and snowshoeing and overall we enjoyed our stay.

Everything was clean and the kitchen had lots of amenities, including a good-sized refrigerator. The only complaint we had was about the sofabed: there was a big coffee table that we had to carry sideways into the bedroom to make room for it. And the sofabed itself had a frame that was a little bit like a bowl. The managers suggested that some people just put the sofabed mattress on the floor and that seems like a pretty good option.

We stayed at here for two weeks while doing some cross country skiing at Royal Gorge and Tahoe Donner. The manager was really helpful and friendly in allowing us to get some Christmas packages delivered before and after our stay (we were travelling from Australia), reducing the stress of getting Christmas presents organised for the kids.
The kitchen was really well stocked, and the unit was very clean and spacious.
There was ample onsite packing and everything was super easy and convent.
We arrived a couple of hours early and the manager made sure we could get into out unit early which was really appreciated.
There were toboggans available for snow play around the units which the kids loved.
Overall, we were really happy with the overall package that KIngvale Lodge offered.

Pros - Cleaner than most "ski lodge/condo" places! Well appointed with DishTV, kitchen supplies, good sized fridge, boot drier. Comfy beds you actually want to sleep on. No human interaction required for check in/out (You are emailed a door code at time of reservation, great for midnight arrivals like us). Priced very well for proximity to the ski areas like Sugarbowl or Boreal. Photos on the website are an accurate portrait of what you'll get.

Cons - If you are sensitive to noise (thru the thin walls, or from the I-80 a few hundred yards away) you may not like this place when it's busy. The main issue holding this review back from five stars is that every room door has a 10" x 24" window without curtains, that allows anybody over 6' tall to peer directly into your room unobstructed at all times! Great for the owners to check you don't have extra people, but certainly adds a creep-out factor of 5. They should consider guest privacy and add curtains.

We are just back from 1week of ski at Sugar Bowl, and this time we were looking for an affordable lodging. We find Kingvale lodge offers very attractive $850 for a 800sqft 2beds fully equipped condo for 6 nights. The rooms are super clean, everything was functional and well organized. It's like having your own place in Tahoe without the associated costs, or hassle! We'll be back for sure.

Stayed in Unit #6 (one bedroom)

Need to know:
1) Limited kitchenette
Full refridgerator and freezer. Two-burner electric stove. Microwave. Coffee machine. toaster. Utensils, bowls, pans, griddle, etc.
No oven. No fan/ventilation (except window)
=> This was just fine for simple meals. I would have been nervous trying to sear meat without any fan
=> Bring your own cooking spray/oil

2) Shower, no bathtub.
=> fine, except we wouldn't have been able to bath either of our two kids (2.5 years and 4 months old)

Overall, we liked the clean unit and its close proximity to Sugar Bowl, Boreal, Soda Springs, etc. and 15 minutes from Safeway in Truckee.
