Perhaps you took your boat out from our triple boat dock, played pool or ping pong in the media room, or caught the sunrise while using our kayaks on the lake or enjoyed a leisurely paddle in the lagoons.

We are sad to have our week in Tahoe come to an end. Thank you for the
use of your beautiful home. We had a wonderful time kayaking and biking.
The lawn games were a lot of fun too! Thank you!!
5 based on 18 traveler reviews
The property is beautiful inside and out. I loved the attention to detail with all the decor and high end amenities from the bedding to the kitchen cook-ware. The home is very clean and well organized with lots of information on the area, restaurants & activities. My wife and I stayed for 5 days with 4 of our teenagers and they loved the game room downstairs with the pool table, ping pong and big screen tv. The view from the upper deck (kitchen/dining room area) is breathtaking; loved reading there and relaxing. I would recommend this home to anyone who is looking for a luxurious property in the heart of the most incredible scenery imaginable. We cannot wait to go back in the summertime with two more of the kids who were unable to go. We hope our experience helps you to consider this rental....a definite 5 star!
Great location, Beautiful Home
Great owners to rent from. They were extremely responsive and wanted to make sure we felt like family guests. Great property. The views from the deck and the roof were perfect.
Really nice interior comforts. No cheap rental amenities.
Chateau reve d'or - A fabulous vacation rental
Your home in the Tahoe Keys is wonderful. The view over Mount Tallac is spectacular specially after a dusting of snow. From the rooftop, you can see the blue waters of Lake Tahoe. The property’s location is perfect. Situated right on the water and with a dock at your disposal, we enjoyed the lovely kayaks that you made available to us.The bicycles were another bonus. We rode nearly everyday on the bike trails through forests and stopping in town for a a lovely lunch or hot coffee with fresh pastries. Everything is close!
We were delighted that the property was so well maintained. Inside everything is very well organized. The kitchen cabinets are labelled so we could find anything we wanted.
The kitchen has an abundance of gourmet cooking utensils such as Le Creuset, all types of dishes,glasses and stemware...everything we needed to make the finest of meals.And cook we did! There are terrific markets nearby - big and small to stock the pantry, After dinner, there is a fabulous game room downstairs where we played pool, relaxed by the television and listened to music.
The house is beautifully decorated with great attention paid to detail. The warm colors are welcoming and the furnishings are so comfortable. The master bathroom is exceptional, and we lingered far too long in the warm water of the oversized jacuzzi bathtub!
From the decks, we watched the fabulous sunsets. Be sure to BBQ on the deck. All the amenities were right at our fingertips and the lunches overlooking the water were so special. The house is also located near great restaurants such as Evan’s American Gourmet Cafe and Riva Grill on the Lake. The view from Riva is not to be missed!
We look forward to staying at Chateau Reve D’or again and would enthusiastically recommend the property.
Thank you for a great experience.
Amazing luxury home in Tahoe Keys
We had a wonderful vacation in Tahoe and the opportunity to stay in this luxurious, well-equipped and comfortable home made all the difference. The views are breath-taking and I could not stop taking pictures of the gorgeous sunrises and sunsets as there are views from every angle of this property. Being right on the water with the keys to paddle through was amazing and we made use of the provided kayaks several times a day. We also rented a boat that we docked at the property and visited Emerald Bay and Sunnyside on the lake during our stay as well. We enjoyed the over-water deck and fire pit each evening, and saw muskrats and beavers as well as osprey and eagles from this vantage point daily. Truly a wonderful location and an immaculate and well-stocked house. Could not have asked for more. I heartily recommend this property and the owners were friendly and easy to work with. They truly wanted to be sure our vacation was nothing short of spectacular. We will definitely be back!
Our favorite place to stay in Tahoe!
We've stayed in several properties at Lake Tahoe over the years, and this house is by far our favorite. It's an absolutely beautiful home in a wonderful location in the Tahoe Keys. The furnishings are luxurious and the home is stocked with everything you could want or need.
We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the deck by the fire pit in the evenings watching the boats and kayaks returning from the day on the lake. It was also nice to be able to launch the kayaks (provided by Melanie!) directly from the boat dock. The gourmet kitchen made it enjoyable to stay in and cook dinner while enjoying the beautiful water views from the house.
This was our best trip to Tahoe yet, due in large part to our stay in this wonderful home!
GORGEOUS HOME ON THE WATER
This truly is a beautifully decorated home; all with a personable touch....open the kitchen cabinets to find glasses, dishes, silverware, and cookware galore. Bathrooms have soft towels and the master bath is a spa retreat...bedrooms are warm and comfortable. Living room furniture is great for cozying up to watch a movie or just sitting in front of a fire with a glass of wine.
There was a large selection of games and extras for use- bikes; kayaks, volleyball, etc - saving money on rental fees is always a plus. There is also a pool table, and a beautiful fire pit for family fun under the stars!
Before arrival date, the owner of the home responded very promptly when I emailed her with questions and concerns regarding the rental! Very grateful for that!! The house is close to anything you could need... including shopping, slopes and the casinos!
The property is truly as described and more. We had a wonderful time! Lots of laughs, good food, fun and lasting family memories at a beautiful home on Tahoe Keys!
Already planning our next visit...Highly recommend!!!
From the Owner
“Why choose Chateau Reve D’Or over all the other Tahoe Keys options out there? We could say because we have spared no expense in making our dream come true…that we came here on our honeymoon in 1988, fell in love with the beauty of the gorgeous lake and mountains of this year-round resort town, shopped for years for the perfect lot in the Tahoe Keys with killer views of mountains and water, and eventually bought and remodeled this house…filled it with beautiful furnishings and lots of fun stuff to enjoy both indoors and outdoors...thus creating our Castle of the Golden Dream…which we now share with a lucky few. Why did we pick the Tahoe Keys? And why this property?? That's easy...though it took a long time to happen. After years of vacationing on Lake Tahoe, we found a unique, waterfront community called Tahoe Keys. Year after year, we rented homes here and came to know the profound joy of living on the waterfront in such a great community, surrounded by stunning natural beauty. It took years to find a house with the elevation we required to preserve those killer mountain and lake views we couldn't do without, plus the home size we needed, coupled with the lot size we wanted to ensure a big open yard, and the amenities that we craved, like the glass railing double roofdeck, boat dock and dining platform...all of which are rare here as they are extremely hard to get approval to build. (New boatdocks are currently forbidden as are many roofdecks). There is no other community like Tahoe Keys on Lake Tahoe and it's extremely unlikely another like it will ever be built; thus our property has both a uniqueness and a rarity to match it's unparalleled beauty. In short, it was perfect for us. Tahoe Keys and our Chateau Reve D'Or is truly our Castle of the Golden Dream...a little piece of paradise on this lovely blue lake in the sky that we call home; we love it here... And we feel strongly that you will too!”
Activity and Interests
Our home is only 10 mins from Eagle Falls and Emerald Bay as well as Angora Lake and fantastic hiking and biking trails. Tallac Historic site is just practically out our back gate and in winter you can cross country ski on the lakeshore! Fireworks on the lake at 4th of July viewed from the Keys beach or our roofdeck are amazing.
