Property Details

This breathtaking secluded 5 acre property is located only 45 minutes from the South Lake Tahoe and minutes from the famous Strawberry/Sierra Ski Resort. It sleeps 6 total adults and children very comfortably (additional people stay is negotiable). It is also minutes away from the beautiful blue waters of Lake Jenkinson. The property is also adjacent to 70 acres of hiking and mountain bike riding of EID. The master bedroom has a king size bed, the second bedroom has a queen size bed and the third bedroom has a bunk bed with a twin bottom and single top beds.

Stunning beauty, Peacfeul seclusion, Homey comfort

  • 5 of 5

The sweet scent of pine engulfs you as you travel into the wooded area. It seems like you've entered another world even though you're only 20 minutes from the highway. Once there you'll find a comfy home w/ all the amenities. A short walk around the property gives you stunning panoramic views of the forest and mountains. 20 minutes south is beautiful Jenkinson Lake which is full of water year 'round drought or not. Then there are the wineries. Auriga is exceptional. Renwood is renown. Dozens are there to discover.

The home is spacious with great views of the spectacular sunsets. Enjoy a game of Foosball in the back room or lounge around in the hammock outside, there is plenty of space for all to enjoy. All the amenities of home.

Myself, wife and our fur child had a wonderful time.

The property sits several miles off of the main road. The directions given to the property are imprecise saying things like "go a few miles". Bring a GPS and get there during the day. There is a gate to the property with a combo lock. You are expected to keep this gate locked at all times. So every time you come and leave you must exit your vehicle, unlock the lock (which takes a bit of time to figure out- it can be upside down so the numbers have to be put in backwards and when you have the numbers loaded correctly you must push on the lock to get it to spring forward.) The gate drags on the ground so you must pick it up and walk it open. When we arrived the AC had been off and the house was sweltering -almost 90degrees. There are no instructions about the house left there and none given to you ahead of time. You must call/text the owner for the wifi code. You are not allowed to stream so no Netflix/Pandora/youtube/etc. I tried to download a hiking trials app and after an hour of it loading I gave up. It took me 2 days to figure out that the solution to the lukewarm water was that you have to turn up the water heater. There was only a little room in the fridge as the owners leave a lot of their own things in there- which made stuffing a weeks worth of groceries in there difficult. There are several holes in the walls from doors being swung open into the walls with no door stoppers - the two adjoining bedrooms have holes in both of them so you can actually see through into the other bedroom. This was a little awkward. The master bedroom bathroom had a strip of drywall missing and no shower curtain- making showering there impossible so it's really a 1.5 and not a 2 bathroom. We found the cooling system not great. On our first night the smoke detector started beeping and in the dark we were not able to locate a ladder and had to listen to the chirping all night. Beware, of the washing machine- it's very finicky do not put a full load in or it will overload and flood the laundry room. There are no cleaning instructions other than the contract which says trash needs to be compacted and put outside in the bin and the house should be left "orderly". What they mean is spring cleaned. Despite spending almost two hours vacuuming, wiping out the fridge, sponging off the kitchen counters we were charged the full damage deposit for "food crumbs" and a couple of baby food dribbles. Hopefully they can afford a shower curtain now.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately this guest left the house extremely filthy and dirty as follows 1. Major stains on the living carpet requiring deep cleaning 2. Major stains on one of the bedrooms requiring deep cleaning 3. Food particles and Crumbs in all rooms 4. Dirty bathroom 5. Left full bag of garbage (that was decaying and smelled the whole house) 6. rearranged the house ad the furniture without putting the back 7. overloaded the washer and damaged our washer, which now requires to be repaired With respect to the guest's UNmeritorious and false review if the house, we heard nothing but how beautiful the house and the surrounding were (we have kept all the texts) until they checked out and we had to keep their deposit. Simply stated this is an obvious case pf sour grapes. WILL NOT RENT TO THIS GUEST ANY MORE

Excellent time!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on New Year's Eve to enjoy the snow with our kids. There was plenty of snow and the driveway was perfect for downhill sledding! The owner of this rental was more than helpful with anything we needed. We throughly enjoyed our experience and cannot wait to go back! We highly recommended this vacation rental to anyone!
