Luxury Tahoe Riverfront Home with Hot Tub
Christmas Valley South Lake Tahoe

Wonderful place. We have been here twice!

  • 4 of 5
This place was perfect for our group of 8 adults and 4 children. David and his wife are very accommodating and provide lots of helpful tips for making the most out of your stay in the area. We love Meyers because it has the beauty of Tahoe without the craziness of South Lake. The kitchen is well equipped and its easy to prepare meals for a big group. The cabin is an easy 10 -15 minutes from Sierra at Tahoe and it is a quick drive to South Lake. There is great sledding and beautiful hikes 2 minutes down the road.

What a great time!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed for the week with our handicapped child, his brother, brother's friend, my wife and brother-in-law. We had a fantastic time. We need a clean house for our hurt child and this place fit the bill, super clean and had everything needed to make you feel at home including washer/dryer if you want to pack light. The kitchen was well stocked, you don't have to worry about not having the right gadget. Steam showers were a plus. Jacuzzi on deck was convenient. Property is so cool, the Truckee river (kind of a stream right now) runs behind the property, a short walk of 50-100 yards. Boys thoroughly enjoyed exploring and hanging by the river. Played horseshoes by the river and croquet in back yard (having never played before it was loads of fun, enjoyed by all). If cracking open a beer or glass of wine, relaxing, star gazing, spending time with family, are up your alley then this is the place for you. Close to the lake too only a short drive of 10-15 minutes. The owners are super friendly and super helpful. Can't wait to come back. Thanks Dave for sharing your home with us.

Wonderfully relaxing by the riverfront.

  • 5 of 5
Staying at the Tahoe River House was like a retreat into relaxation. The spacious house was elegant, yet homey with natural décor, nature photos and artwork. The large kitchen has a good selection of appliances, utensils and dishware to prepare all of your meals. The family room is cozy and inviting with plenty of room to stretch out on the leather couches and recliners. It a perfect area to watch cable T.V., DVD's and listen to music. There is a large selection of books to enjoy and board games for the family to play. All the comforts of home are here. The park-like backyard was wonderful from the lush green lawn to the wild flowered meadow leading to the Truckee river. Walk in the river and take a dip or listen to the tranquil sounds of the streaming water. Blue Jays, Robins and other birds can be seen among the very tall trees. Wildlife is ever present, as we saw a rabbit and deer during our stay. A quiet neighborhood with excellent star-gazing at night. The only negative thing to this fantastic house is when we had to leave, for our vacation had come to an end. If you bring groceries and a bathing suit you won't need anything else to make this your home away from home.

Peacefull Setting Inside and Out

  • 5 of 5
We have rented many vacation homes in the past years with our family(5 plus 1 dog) and this was one of the top rentals we have enjoyed. The owner and his wife were very cordial and informative regarding the house and property. We felt very comfortable and at home inside the house. There was ample sleeping, dinning, entertainment and parking accomodations. The home is also within a 10 mins. drive from a major grocery store and 12 mins from the lake.
The back yard and walk to the river was peaceful and serene. We and our grandkids spent alot of time down by the river. Sitting in one of the 2 rockers by the water for an hour will definitley relax one who has a stressfull job in their life.
We all hated to leave this spot but we will definitley strive to rent this property again!

Owner's Response: It is a pleasure to have our guests enjoy our private and well maintained property. Having our guests enjoy our property is our prime concern and goal. With limited time off from work, our property offers a peaceful and clean experience. Two private acres on the Upper Truckee River offers our guests the "old Tahoe feeling" without giving up modern conveniences of a clean and well equipped home.

An ideal home base

  • 5 of 5
The river house was the perfect choice for a carefree Easter vacation. The house was spacious with all the advertised amenities. Beautiful location and very private. Owner was great showed us around and was helpful in suggesting fun day trips. The house was very clean. They allow dogs and have a huge yard to let them romp around in. The location is great. It's a quick drive to the lake, casinos, and ski resorts. We are already booking our next stay.

Prefect House to Experience Tahoe

  • 5 of 5
This house has every amenity you could ever want. The house was very clean and comfortable with plenty of space. It has central heating and a gas fireplace in the family room giving the house a cozy luxury lodge feel to it, complete with spa amenities like the steam showers and hot tub. The house has a huge yard; it’s like renting a private park on the river. It was very peaceful and relaxing. The owner, Dave lives next door we saw him once upon arrival when he gave us a helpful tour of the home. We received our full deposit refund shortly after departure. We will definitely rent this home again.
