Family Christmas Ski Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We rented this home for our Christmas family Ski vacation consisting of a group of three families (15 people). When we arrived at the house, we were so impressed and pleased to see that it far exceeded our expectations.It is so spacious and comfortable inside and out. Felt just like home with the warm fireplace. Rooms are large and comfortable. House was super clean. There are books, movies, and games to keep everyone happy.The kitchen is large and has every utensil and gadget that one needs to prepare a meal with. The pictures shown on VRBO listing does not do it justice. It is truly a home away from home.Everyone in our family kept saying how very pleased they were with ARRTI. Mary was so nice, helpful, and accommodating to work with. I HIGHLY recommend this rental.

One of the Best South Lake Tahoe homes we've been too

We rented A River Runs Thru It for my husband's birthday (13 people) and it was such an amazing property. The house is very kid friendly as we had two who were 12 months old. The kitchen is well stocked and is definitely big enough to cook for a birthday party. The house has everything you could want and more - BBQ with extra propane, tons of storage, an extra refrigerator, hot tub, multiple living spaces (which was nice to be able to have a play space for the babies separate from where everyone else congregated). The property is so amazing with not only large indoor spaces, but a huge yard on the edge of the meadow (it is at the end of the road with only one obvious neighbor). The most amazing part was we didn't think there would still be water in the creek - but there was, and the guests were excited to go and dip their feet in. The owners are wonderful to work with and I would not hesitate renting this property again or recommending it to a friend looking for a place to stay with a large group. The people in my party were so impressed as well that I can easily say that they would recommend to people they know as well!!

Amazing Tahoe getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this lovely home with a group of 6 families with kids. The house is super clean, incredibly well-stocked with kitchen appliances/dishware/etc, spacious, and comfortable for everyone. We found everything we needed and more! They have thought of everything here from a spare BBQ propane tank to the salad spinner! The hot tub overlooking the river was a pleasure during the cool evenings. The house location at the end of the road, looking out on an expansive meadow, is idyllic. Certainly one of the nicest homes I have ever rented through VRBO! Thanks.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
We had a family reunion with folks from Alaska, Oklahoma, Texas and Kansas... and of course California, and had a truly wonderful time. The house far exceeded our expectations, very clean and well equipped. Plenty of things to keep everyone happy, tons of books and movies, and every piece of WII equipment you could imagine!! Close to the lake too! The yard was beautiful, hot tub amazing and the creek out back kept the kids fishing for crawdads all afternoon!! We will definitely come back again...

So relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family has vacationed in South Lake Tahoe for over thirty years. As our family has grown, we have needed larger and larger homes. This home is perfect in many ways, but especially for large family reunions. Not only does it sleep over 20, but there is so much room to enjoy each other in both the house and the yard. The river really does run through it and can be enjoyed from the large yard as well as the covered wrap around porch. The two separate living areas make it perfect for different groups to be watching movies, tv, playing games, or just visiting. The closest beach is in walking distance and is beautiful and very private compared to the larger beaches. This is one of my favorite homes ever!

From the Owner

We chose Tahoe as our vacation home destination because it was a place where my husband has many childhood memories. Prior to purchasing this home, we found ourselves renting other homes around the lake every summer. It had always been a dream of ours to own a home in Tahoe and we couldn't be more fortunate to have found this home. Our friends Don & Joyce just happened to be in Tahoe on the same weekend we were when we came across it on it's first day on the market. Meant to be!

Activity and Interests

Located right on the river where you can fish or hop on a raft and float right to the lake.

From the Owner

Our home is the perfect home for family reunions and the gathering of friends who may want to spend their vacations together. Our property is very unique because it sits on 3/4 of an acre and is the largest parcel in the whole neighborhood. Located right on the creek overlooking an expansive meadow, it has views beyond compare. So many times our renters have commented to us that the pictures, as pretty as they are on our website, don't even compare to when you actually see it in person.
