our favorite cabin

  • 5 of 5

We've rented several cabins over the years and this one is our favorite. The layout is comfortable and the deck adds alot of additional space with a great view.

Very clean and comfortable. The owners have looked after every detail. the welcome basket is a great touch.

Great location, great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Flat out loved everything about this cabin. Location was decently located to everything, access to the private beach, shops stores restaurants! The cabin itself was outstanding the bedrooms where great comfy beds, the kids room loaded with toys and the rock wall was Awesome! Kitchen was loaded with whatever you needed great appliances. The decks where super awesome to hang out on with the seating and space, the hot tub we didn't use but once but was still nice to have! I myself am a charcoal bbq or smoakin my food kinda guy but it was nice to have a grill there to use on the deck. The parking and garage was plenty and perfect. Overall this cabin was a great week long stay my kids and my wife and I loved it and would consider it again next time we visit Tahoe!

Best cabin ever!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been in search of that "perfect" cabin for 18 years and we can honestly say we found it with this cabin! It's so beautiful, wonderful layout, great kitchen and the deck...omg! You may never want to leave. I know we didn't. Already looking forward to renting it next year. I told my husband, if it ever goes on the market, I'd beg, borrow and steal to buy this home!

Nice, big house in great location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed all over the west and north shore of LT, and this has been our favorite house so far. The location is fantastic, about halfway between Tahoe City and Homewood, so quick access to Tahoe City/Squaw/Alpine and the stores/etc. on the west shore. It is also big enough for a family to never experience "cabin fever" while up in the mountains.

The kitchen was very well equipped, which we appreciated very much, and all the beds were comfortable. Making a wood fire was easy with the gas starter, so that was nice.

Kristen, who was the property, was absolutely terrific answering any questions and giving us a heads-up whenever the guy shoveling the deck and stairs (thank you) would be coming by.

We will definitely be requesting to stay here again in the future--thank you for having us.

Perfect getaway house

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what an amazing cabin. All the comforts and luxuries you could ask for in an ideal setting. Moments from the lake. Easy access to skiing and snowboarding. We took advantage of the deck and yard for snowman building, and made some great meals in a kitchen I wish I had at my house.

Oh, and my child wants me to mention the climbing wall in kids room. Such an amazing place. I'll be returning.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review. We're so happy you fully enjoyed the house. It has definitely been a great year for snowman building! Looking forward to hosting your family again.

The house is fine. Several things need to be fixed like: shades in all rooms and kitchen cabinets.

  • 2 of 5

We were there for a week for New Year 2016. Unfortunately it started to snow heavily. We were stuck in the house for days. Snow removal was very inefficient. We had to clear the driveway by ourselves many times! The road to get to this house is very dangerous when snowing and covered in ice! There was also a power outage for 2 days. We were freezing and there was no hot water. We didn't get assistance from the owner. They basically told us we were on our own. There were no white candles, just a bunch of old vanilla scented candles that didn't make any light. There was only one emergency portable light. Not enough for six people.

This house is good only in the summer or fall.

Owner's Response: We are sorry to hear you felt we were not responsive to your needs. Unfortunately, Tahoe has experienced many severe storms this winter and your visit happened to be during one of them. It was a tough storm for everyone in the entire area, as we had no control over the weather and all the challenges that it brought. We prepare our guests and the houses as best as possible. Yes, the house is up a steep hill and we make all our guests aware of this prior to arrival in our Renter’s Info Sheet. We thoroughly discuss winter driving recommendations so our guests are prepared with snow tires and/or chains. We spoke with you and all our guests during the power outage to make sure everyone was aware of the location of emergency supplies. The garage was stocked with plenty of hardwood and kindling to make fires. The stove tops are gas and can be lit manually for hot water or cooking. We provide long wood matches, a box of short matches and long gas lighters. The fireplace has large glass candles and there are other candles throughout the bedrooms. There is a battery powered lantern available as well as an oil lantern that works well for bright light. As far as snow removal, we believe the entire Tahoe basin did the best they could to deal with the amount of snow we received in a short amount of time. Most of us in the basin are still working on snow removal from that storm, weeks later. It’s an adventure vacation for everyone when blizzards roll through. There is only so much everyone can do but to be patient. We are so sorry for the inconvenience and don’t blame you for leaving a bad review. We wish we could leave that storm a bad review too!
