traveler reviews for this south lake tahoe house rental

Needs improvements to be a great cabin

Review submitted: August 3, 2014   Date of arrival: July 29, 2014

I am a bit surprised by all the good reviews of this cabin. My family recently stayed here for a family reunion. The cabin is indeed beautiful and spacious, but there were many things that were lacking. To start with, we discovered that many of the lights in the kitchen didn't work. When we contacted the owner about it, she said she would check on it another time. Why would she not have a maintenance person come and fix that? We were all mystified. We also told her that several of the TVs did not work, but no one came out to look at them either.

The cabin is supposed to sleep 20 people, but it's really suited for about 16. On the lower level, there are enough beds for 12 people, but there is only one bathroom. One bathroom for 12 people is quite an interesting experience! The insulation in the walls and floors is minimal (or missing) so the people sleeping on the lower level hear everything going on above them (people walking on the hardwood floors, etc). It was very loud. Not fun when you are trying to sleep.

The cabin was also quite messy when we arrived- drawers not clean, cobwebs everywhere, laundry rooms and kitchen not completely clean. The game shelf downstairs was in complete disarray. We had to organize it in order to play games. The WIFI was also spotty.

Be aware that there is no A/C in this cabin so when it gets hot all you can do is open the windows. There is also no hot tub and no fire pit (probably not a good idea in drought conditions). If you want to roast marshmallows, you'll have to use the gas grill.

The cabin itself is beautiful and the layout is great. The kitchen is huge and very nice (provided the lights work); goodness knows why there were two coffee pots and no coffee grinder! The beds were comfortable, which was a plus. And there is a huge deck with a nice view. But, in general, the bad things outweigh the good. We would not stay here again.

Owners response: These guests seemed nice enough, but they had difficulties from the very start…from how to use the HomeAway booking process to turning on the TV. Since they originally booked in May, we have happily answered all of their questions in their 20+ emails and numerous phone calls. They wanted to know everything they could about what was at the property and went so far as to recommend that we lay sod as they were planning on taking family pictures! On our HomeAway and VRBO sites, we have tried to list all of the items we think people would need or want to know if we had available for them. When booking they could easily see that we don’t claim to have a hot tub or fire pit or a coffee grinder.
It was unfortunate that there was an electrical issue while they were there. They let us know right away that they could not get some lights to work. The lights that were not working in the kitchen were decorative custom pendant lights. The problem was due to a bad transformer. After they checked out, we immediately had an electrician to come and look at them so as to not disturb their vacation, since there is ample lighting in the kitchen without them (7 can lights and under cabinet lighting as well).
These guests also requested an early check in and our housekeeper made it happen, she also came right over to assist them with an issue that they had created by opening faucets in the garage and not closing them. We have 3 TV’s listed on our site but have extras in the bunk room (kids rooms) so that parents can move the DVD players for the kids if needed. We have beds for 20 (using a pull out sofa, which is listed) and it is a 3 story house with 4 bathrooms, so 1 floor will have 2 bathrooms and 2 will have 1. This information was also listed on our site! We always ask guests for ways to improve their stay and purchase any reasonable items that they recommend. There is really no need for A/C in Tahoe, but coming from the valley it did freak me out at first too.
I truly am sorry that these guests did not enjoy themselves. We have been renting this gorgeous home for 3 years and have never had a bad review or a problem that we couldn’t solve. Please read the numerous other reviews and feel free to contact the owners if you have any questions.

Heaven on earth

Review submitted: June 20, 2013   Date of arrival: June 12, 2013

My wife Linda and I were married in South Lake Tahoe over 30 years ago and celebrated many an anniversary revisiting one of our favorite places on earth, but we've never ventured outside the realm of luxury resorts until now. So when we started exploring Tahoe as a spot for our annual family vacation we were surprised by the many places and prices to choose from but only one stood out for us; The Pioneer Trail home in South Lake Tahoe.

We had seen pictures inside and out but nothing would prepare us for the stunning beauty of this cabin or the breath taking and magnificent views we would experience around it as well!

We all gathered for our second only summer vacation as family; Mom/dad, our four grown children, their spouses and our ten wonderful grandchildren ranging in ages from 5 to 15, it is a brood no doubt. So finding a place to accommodate a party of 19 can be difficult especially during the summer and winter months and at the Holidays!

But they not only accommodated our entire family but you did so in Tahoe Luxury fashion as well. From the bunk beds for the five girls to a room the five boys could call their own, and the adults had an area to call their as well!

From the incredible floor plan and ease in managing most all our functions from the main dining area and grand living room, to celebrating and enjoying each other from within the walls of your Chateau and the many amenities with it!

And to top our trip off, we were able to enjoy all the local amenities such as hiking the Lower Truckee River, the falls, and the most incredible rafting from Tahoe City suited for all ages and just a short drive away from the cabin.

And while the boys/men were taking in a round of Disc (Frisbee) golf, the girls enjoyed pampering themselves at the local beaches and taking in some of the local sights. Dad even got to take advantage of some quiet time and a much needed nap in celebration of "Father's Day", Ahhh!

And any issues we may have encountered were quickly resolved with the owners by just picking up the phone!

We would highly recommend this getaway for any family gathering, large or small and strongly suggest taking full advantage of all it has to offer and what Lake Tahoe has to offer as well.

We look forward to our next stay at the Pioneer Trail property and are already discussing some dates.

This house is BREATHTAKINGLY beautiful, well-maintained, and well-stocked. There is something for everyone from kids to seniors! The floor plan is very open - allowing easily for group gatherings and yet there are several nooks and crannies allowing for quiet moments alone. The location and number of windows allows for great views of the scenic Tahoe landscape and plenty of natural light. The house is equipped with many modern amenities and the appliances and fixtures are exquisite! If mobility is a concern, there are lots of stairs because the house is multi-level. We never ran out of hot water for showering and always had something to do with the pool table, Wii, fooseball, board games, deck, and backyard space. Please read instructions carefully so you know how to lock the front door when you leave. The dining table was perfect for a large group and allowed us to eat all of our meals together. The guitar was another great feature since several in our party are aspiring rock stars. Beds and linens were clean. We will definitely consider staying here in the future and would rate this as the best house we've ever stayed in, in more than 10 years of Tahoe vacation renting! Bravo!
