Bachelor party

  • 5 of 5
I would highly recommend the PE palace for any bachelor party or large party trip in general. The house had more than enough space inside, garage and driveway to fit multiple vehicles. House well very well taken care of, well suited with kitchen appliances and supplies. PE palace is close to both 50 and 89 in case you are looking to travel around the lake. Also, PE palace is only a 10 dollar cab ride from downtown. Finally, it never took more than a few minutes to get a response from management. For the price, I would HIGHLY recommend this house, or any run by this company.

Great house, perfect location and awesome amenities!!

  • 5 of 5
I booked this house for a bachelor party of about 16 guys and we couldn't have been happier. It slept all of us with ease, had plenty of rooms for pockets of friends to get together or get away if needed, the main room upstairs was plenty large to allow more than one cook in the kitchen and the spa/game room were clutch.

Adam and his wife Wendy were a breeze to work with and that made the experience that much more delightful. I would recommend this cabin any time of year for a large group looking to enjoy all Tahoe has to offer.

Perfect Accomodations!

  • 5 of 5
We recently had a college friend reunion (we're all in our 30's) in Lake Tahoe and rented this gorgeous home! We have rented approximately 15-20 different homes and apartments through VRBO over the years, and I believe this was the cleanest, most spacious, and most true to the owner's description. This house is immaculate!! The kitchen was stocked with every kitchen gadget we could have possibly imagined. There is a stellar game room with old school Pac Man and air hockey. The main living room off the kitchen provided plenty of seating for game nights, conversing, and watching movies! This house was truly a find in beautiful Lake Tahoe! We hope to stay here again in the future!

Terrific family reunion location

  • 5 of 5
We had a get together of 18 family members at this terrific property. The location is on a quiet cul-de-sac close to all the Tahoe activities. We spent a lot of time together in the large kitchen and family room preparing meals and sitting around catching up, while the children spent hours in the game room. The house was very clean and had everything we needed and more. Everyone was very impressed with the home. We hope to return for another reunion in the future.

We needed a place to offer as a retreat to 16 of our volunteers. They give their time, energy and sometimes money to be big brothers and big sisters to the youth of our community. Pony Express Palace was indeed a retreat and a wonderful thank you to our volunteers. The beautiful welcoming exterior to the warm and extravagant interior. It was a winter wonderland for sure! The house is beautiful, big, perfectly located to make you feel you are surrounded by snow and forest, but just a short (4min) drive to town. It was exactly what we were looking for and it exceeded our expectations. Thank you for your hospitality and allowing us to stay in one of your beautiful cabins!
