About The Owner

Hello! Thanks for visiting our VRBO website for our Lake Tahoe home. We bought our home a few years ago and we love it (although the picture is of us in San Francisco). My wife and I both work in finance in San Francisco and we try to make it up to our Lake Tahoe home as often as possible. We think this house is great because (1) we love to ski, (2) we like to gamble, (3) we love to hike, (4) we love to entertain a big group of people, and (5) it has a great 'cabin-feel'. Further, our kids (ages 2 and 5) LOVE it there because there is so much space, including a huge backyard.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Black Bart

(1) Access to ski resorts - It is literally, less than a 5 minute drive to Heavenly Valley. Unless you drive really slow, then maybe slightly longer for you...

(2) Access to casinos, resorts, and shopping - It's a really short drive to the main casinos/resorts and the new Heavenly village.

(3) Access to the Woods and the Outdoors - For those of you looking to come during the summer, there are great hiking areas around the cabin and we're right across the street from a meadow and creek that is great for hiking or snow-shoeing in the winter.

(4) Large living space - There is so much room upstairs and with an open kitchen, its easy to have the entire house together. After all, why bring your family and friends up if you can't all be together in the same room?

What makes this house unique

Private, luxury living, with close accessibility to restaurants, shopping, etc. Beautiful kitchen and lots of open space.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for the great hospitality! The house was amazing! Our little girls had the time of their lives at Reagan's beach, and the Best of the West Rib Cook-Off in Reno and hiking around the meadow! We are already planning our trip next year!

Enjoyed our winter fam vacation

  • 4 of 5

The location was great and the house was very nice with enough room for 9 adults and 2 kids. The only bummer was the heating only seemed to warm up the very top level. The middle floor with the main bedrooms was quite cold. I would only see this as a problem in the winter and overall it wasn't a huge deal.

Owner's Response: Hi Erin- Thanks for staying at our home and I am glad you had a nice stay. I am sorry you had issues getting the middle floor to heat up - I will look into that right away. We do have 2 fireplaces on that floor, which usually is enough but I'll check into it - they must not have been enough for whatever reason. Thanks again for staying with us!

Perfect for family holiday vacation

  • 5 of 5

Large, comfortable mountain home in terrific location. Close to the lake and the ski slopes. Enjoyed the spacious, open living/kitchen area -- a great gathering place for the family to enjoy games, puzzles, movies, and a warm (gas) fire. Thanks, Nicole, for being so helpful and accommodating!

Incredible for groups, families, great kitchen + huge backyard (our 2nd time renting this place)

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place - it was our second time here! We went with two other families and it was such a great place for groups. The kids loved playing in the backyard and we enjoyed cooking breakfasts and dinners in the big kitchen. The beds were really comfortable (not sure about the bunk beds but those were where the kids slept so.......). :) Would love to stay here again, maybe during ski season next time! It has that feel of a ski place/cabin.

Awesome hosts, great location and perfect home layout

  • 5 of 5

This is a great home for families. We stayed here with a mix of adults and kids and everyone loved it. The house is well kept and the hosts are great - easily accessible and no issues. There are 5 bedrooms and we had 8 adults and 6 kids. One of the bedrooms has 2 sets of bunk beds and the kids loved it. We had 4 kids in there and, although sleep time was difficult, they had a blast and continue to talk about the trip to this day. The upstairs great room is perfect for entertaining and big groups. Everyone ate at the table or kitchen island and everyone could participate in the conversation. Perfect for a getaway with friends or a family reunion. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful home, huge backyard, spacious kitchen/living/dining area

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with several other couples and our children (ages 1-6) and it was beyond perfect. The upstairs living area is an open kitchen/living/dining area with tons of place for the kids to play. They were able to play and leave their toys strewn about while we enjoyed drinks/appetizers in the kitchen and everyone was happy. The home has 2 very large master bedrooms, both which have room for extra beds, like air mattresses or cribs or sleeping bags. We used the downstairs master which has a trundle bed and our 2 kids slept on that. The backyard is GREAT and the kids were sledding anytime we would let them. I bet this would be so fun for summer as well. The location is great too - only a mile from Heavenly and a couple miles from the Casinos (a cab back cost about $12) so it is close enough but really peaceful and quiet.
