Best Home for a Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a family reunion, that included 8 adults and 5 teenage children. Hands-down, this was the best home for us! The location was amazing--with the creek running behind, and the large lawn for croquet, badminton, and corn hole. Not to mention the privacy and views, access to the lake and several other South Lake Tahoe amenities. It's close to everything! Also, the kitchen was appointed with absolutely anything one would need (including a second refrigerator in the storage room) to cook a gourmet meal. The outdoor barbecue station (which was clean and well stocked) also had a fridge. The two family rooms meant the game could be on in one, and a movie could be playing in the other--and the large, sectional sofas provided space for all 13 of us (and then some!).

Next time we're in So. Lake Tahoe with a large group, this will be our go-to.

When other reviews said the photos don't do this home justice, it is true! I recommend you go and see for yourself.

Wonderful Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Our large family rented this home for a reunion and everyone loved it for the size, location, décor, and amenities the home provides.

The home is at the dead end of a quiet residential street providing a wonderful view of the mountains and meadow from the living room, with no other homes obstructing the view. The kitchen is well designed and well stocked with everything we needed. We appreciated the double oven, large gas stove, granite countertops, custom cabinetry, and extra refrigerator/freezer provided in the mudroom. The children enjoyed being able to play in the large backyard, and there were plenty of sleds for them to use in the snow. They also enjoyed having their own big room upstairs with multiple bunk beds and a TV, and they spent hours up there playing together and watching movies.

The home is located very close to shops and restaurants, is practically across the street from the Tahoe Rec Center where we enjoyed the indoor pool and ice skating, and it’s just a 10 min drive to Heavenly ski resort which we also visited during our stay.

The owner was very helpful and responsive throughout the reservation process.

We highly recommend this home to other large families looking for a vacation home where you can enjoy quality time together in a comfortable, clean, quiet and modern home.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We rented this place for a family reunion. Guests ranged in age from 6 to 80. It was perfect for everyone. Tons of space in this house. It's beautifully appointed, and easily the best stocked house I've ever rented. ( Bravo on all the glass wear, platters, appliances etc. - it really felt like home!) The location is perfect, feels secluded but still close to town. The meadow and creek were absolutely beautiful. I've been home one day and have already referred this property to friends. If you have a large group, look no further. It's a beauty.

The perfect house in South Lake Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a class reunion of 70 yr old ladies, flying and driving in from all over the country, most having very specific requirements. We LOVED IT! The house is actually better than described, more spacious and beautiful than described and we all voted to come back. Everything one could possibly want is provided and more. Location is perfect, close to everything, but feels secluded on a dead-end street, surrounded by meadow and lawn. You will not be disappointed, I promise!

An Amazing experience on our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had had a entire family reunion in South Lake Tahoe for over 5 years and this gorgeous home was a first for us! This actually is a 6 star accommodations, they left no questions unanswered! Anything we could think of that we needed was there and then some! The pictures, which look great, don't do this amazing home any justice! We are lifers here for sure. Our 6 grandchildren ages 7-13 had their own retreat upstairs and each couple had their own king size bedroom and our 2 single ladies were comfortable in their own queen size room. The furnishings, decor and amenities were more than we could imagine! The lot was huge and had enough room for all 17 of us and room for cartwheels and BBQ-ing. This by far was the BEST home and family vacation we have ever had (the family agrees)! Thank you for allowing us to share your spectacular home.....we'll be back - see you next year!

Location

From the Owner

We chose Tahoe as our vacation home destination because it was a place where my husband has many childhood memories. Prior to purchasing this home, we found ourselves renting other homes around the lake every summer. It had always been a dream of ours to own a home in Tahoe and we couldn't be more fortunate to have found this home. Our friends Don & Joyce just happened to be in Tahoe on the same weekend we were when we came across it on it's first day on the market. Meant to be!

Activity and Interests

Located right on the river where you can fish or hop on a raft and float right to the lake.

Amenities

From the Owner

Our home is the perfect home for family reunions and the gathering of friends who may want to spend their vacations together. Our property is very unique because it sits on 3/4 of an acre and is the largest parcel in the whole neighborhood. Located right on the creek overlooking an expansive meadow, it has views beyond compare. So many times our renters have commented to us that the pictures, as pretty as they are on our website, don't even compare to when you actually see it in person.
