About the Owner

Tahoe is the place we spent many vacations as children and where I built many fond memories. I wanted to relive that as an adult with my family and help other families do the same. Come, stay a while, and create memories to remember for many years to come.

Great Family Getaway...

  • of 5
Our family stayed at this property 1/17-1/19. Working with the owner was easy and pain free. This place was great!! It is spacious, has everything you could think of and the kids got a kick out of automatic garbage can. Lol! We loved that this is located in a quiet residential neighborhood and not far from the things you may need (grocery store, restaurants and 7-11). The only issue we had was with the hot matter what we tried, it was barely luke warm. I've already emailed the owner, so I'm sure this will be addressed. I can wait to return to this place in the summer! Look no more, rent this place!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I'm glad you loved the house. I just wish you had contacted me during your stay about the water rather than after you left. Someone would have been over immediately to help you. It was discovered the water heater temperature had been turned down for no reason. I would be delighted to have you return in the future.

Awesome House.

  • 5 of 5
The House was very well kept and had everything you could think of to make you feel right at home. There was lots of stores and restaurants with in walking distance. The kids really liked how close the school was, same with mom and I. Jessica is exceptional, she was very responsive to all our needs and concerns. This house will be our first option on our next trip to Tahoe.

Great location, family-friendly house

  • 5 of 5
Quiet neighborhood, close to Taylor Creek Visitor's Center, Pope and Baldwin beaches, Fallen Leaf Lake, Camp Richardson, horseback riding and paved bike path as well as close to multiple trailheads leading to fantastic hikes in the Desolation Wilderness (including the beautiful Mt Tallac) House very comfortably accommodates larger groups, loved the fully equipped kitchen. Definitely would love to come back again!

Tahoe cabin....

  • 4 of 5
I had never rented a cabin before so I didn’t know what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised.
Things that would have been helpful to know: You don’t need to pack the kitchen sink, The cabin was well stock with condiments such as sugar, mayonnaise and many other things. As long as you bring meats, cheeses and bread your set. There is every type of kitchen utensil and or pan you’ll ever need.
There is a ton of blankets & lots of places to sleep. There are also many bathroom amenities like shampoo, towels and so on. You don’t need to pack a lot (which we did). The showers are great, three bathrooms was great!
The cable is good but we were to dumb to figure out the net flicks or the radio and had three remots with no instructions. Also there is no Tv in master or child’s room which was an issue for my daughters.
The house was slightly cold, the heater is either full blast or nothing. So pack comfy warm clothes. The fire place was not working during our visit, which was sad cause we would have loved a fireplace in the snow : ( and the garage with the pool table was under construction.
But all in all we had a good time, the hill in the front yard was great for sledding. The town is not far at all. Lots of snow, nice quite street and the house was very clean.
We would stay here again!

From the Owner

Having a house so close to a walking or hiking trail is a wonderful way to enjoy Lake Tahoe. Morning and evening views of the lake from the hill are amazing. One of the few sandy beaches along Tahoe is located a few miles away. Bike trails around the lake start just outside the neighborhood and are easy to access.
