vacation rental description

This is a 3 bedroom 2 bath family home and as such has been decorated and stocked with my own family's comfort in mind.  This is not a "bare bones" rental but a very comfortable and user friendly house.

The house is located on 4 lots off Pioneer Trail and is the largest in the neighborhood.  The back gate allows easy access and parking for boats on trailers, snowmobiles, and even an R.V.  It is especially good for children and pets.  The yard includes a small slope that previous renters have told up is perfect for a toddler's first experience in sliding down a snowy hill!  There is winter parking for two vehicles and Pioneer Trail is on a school bus route, so it is always plowed early on school days!

The house is full of skylights and vaulted ceilings creating a large, bright, and comfortable atmosphere.

We really like to cook, so we keep the Kitchen stocked with all of the equipment my family uses when we visit.  From the burr coffee grinder to the pressure cooker, to a full array of cooking utensils and pans, you can find everything you would need to cook a casual grilled dinner or a full holiday meal.  We also keep lots of plastic glasses and plates on hand for children and meals out on the deck.

There are 3 bedrooms, 2 queen beds, a full bed, a twin bed, and a pull out queen sofa bed so the house is versitile to accomodate individual couples, families, and everything in between.  There are always lots of big fluffy towels, extra blankets, and warm throws to curl up on the sofa.

The master bedroom has a queen bed, private bath, large closet, skylights, vaulted ceilings, and flat screen tv.

The second bedrooms has a queen bed,  large closet, and a flat screen televistion with DVD player.  The sliding glass door opens onto the deck.

The third bedroom has a full bed and a twin bed, large closet, and a flat screen tv.  The sliding glass door opens onto the deck.

The living room has a marble fireplace.  We do not provide fire wood, but it can be found at most of the stores in the area.  There is a leather sofa and loveseat, a queen pull out bed/couch, large high def flat screen tv with DVD and VCR, and an executive desk with a swivel chair.

The dining room has skylights, a vaulted ceiling, and a table that seats 8 with an additional 2 comfortable swivel chairs at the granite countertop.  The sliding glass door opens onto the deck and there is a lovely box window that looks out over the side yard.

The kitchen has a skylight, vaulted ceiling, box window, and granite countertops.  The stove is set into the counter that looks out into the dining room allowing the cook to socialise with guests seated at the bar or in the dining area.  There is a stove, oven, dishwasher, refrigerator, freezer, microwave and tons of smaller cooking appliances.  The washer and dryer are located in the hall

There is a hot tub on the deck.

traveler reviews for this south lake tahoe house rental

Couldn't ask for more

Review submitted: September 5, 2013   Date of arrival: July 19, 2013

Wow what a great rental. It is really large, has a great kitchen for entertaining and is even better in person than in pictures. I normally stay at the Marriott Timber lodge but this beats it hands down. The well outfitted kitchen you can actually cook in. I really liked that the location avoids all the town traffic and is just 2 short blocks from hiking biking and xx ski trails. There's tons of space for parking several vehicles and all your gear and still plenty of room for the kids to run around. There's a nice sized deck with a BBQ hot tub and privacy.
