Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Easy to find. Very spacious. All beds were very comfortable including the bunk bed. Kitchen had everything as far as utensils, appliances, glasses, etc. such a wonderful experience. Great memories created. This home doesn't have A/C, this is the only reason I would rate it less then a 5 star. Kate from InvitedHomes told me about the A/C before hand but I really think this house needs it, at least when we were there. They do have fans though. Overall great place! We would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your feedback! Like most Tahoe homes, this one doesn't have AC because almost all of the time it does cool down enough - we have had a hot summer though! We would love to have you again.

Beautiful! Can't wait to visit again!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here during the summer with family. The house is super beautiful. The setting is very peaceful, away from the bustle of much of South Lake Tahoe, which we appreciated, but close to all of the places we wanted to go. Plenty of space for everyone to feel like they can have some privacy, but wonderful common spaces for hanging out. Loved it. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

This house was lovely. We really enjoyed our stay there.

  • 5 of 5

We really didn't care for the living room sofas that were uncomfortable for us taller people since it sits low and the backs keep falling off the sofas easily. Other than that the house was super!!

Many thanks!!

Looks better than in the pictures

  • 5 of 5

The place was clean and is exactly like how it is presented in the pictures, in fact it felt even larger than the way the pictures depicted the place. Kitchen was well equipped and hot tub was clean and ready. My group of 14 had a very comfortable time hanging out in the cabin, plenty of space for all of us. The garage could park 3 cars side by side comfortably. Great place for a group looking to chill out and not party hard as it is in a noise sensitive area, quiet time after 10pm. We would definitely come back here again.

Beautiful home, INCREDIBLE value!

  • 4 of 5

Overall, our group LOVED this home! It was a perfect fit for us and the common area/kitchen is perfection. It is rare to arrive anywhere and the product is exactly as you saw in the pictures. But this home is exactly as it is pictured and very clean. The description was accurate- for this home perhaps a warning prior to booking that it is in a noise sensitive area would be helpful.

Only a few standard amenities such as soap dishes in the bathrooms, an iron/ironing board and blow dryer(s) would have been welcomed.

In all honesty, everyone wished we were staying longer! I will tell everyone who will listen about our experience. Not to mention the incredible pricing! The value is incredible for the level of product and service received.
