Beautiful Tahoe house with character and lots of space
Came up to Tahoe for a hockey tournament. We’ve rented a lot of houses in the past and this room situation was by far the best for a group of people. Usually it’s either a bunch of rooms with a bunch of beds or 6 rooms with 1 queen bed each which sucks if you’re traveling with couples and singles. Our couples all got their own room and players all got beds. We were all so thankful to get a bed to sleep in!
On top of that the house had several common rooms and plenty of space which was so nice to not feel on top of each other the whole weekend. There was an adorable bar on the middle floor which was so perfect for a drink or cocktail after a game!
This house had some really nice decor up so the house didn’t fee bare which was really nice. They were also fully stocked with whatever you need for cooking. Additionally the house was super clean. We had several questions throughout the weekend and Eddie and his wife were accessible and so kind in helping out and answering questions! There is a brand new heating system that is easy to use and kept the house warm the duration of our stay.
As a California native who has spent A LOT of time in Tahoe this home is exactly what I picture when I rent a place up there. I’m not sure what everyone has in mind renting a home in Tahoe but I encourage you to take in the ambiance of a real Tahoe home, even if there are some creaks of the floor boards that’s what gives Tahoe it’s character and log cabin feel.
If you want the Hilton find a hotel.
We will hope to stay here next year for our tournament!
Apalachee House - great stay.
This is basically a wonderful place. Great views through the trees. A short walk down the quiet road to some nice forest trails. Spa, pool table and table tennis and nice family/TV spaces kept family occupied. Short drive to the casinos in South Lake Tahoe, the lake , shopping and to some truly fabulous mountain hiking. Drive around Lake Tahoe is a magic way to spend one day. The city sophistication in South Lake Tahoe with restaurants and Casinos and the stunning wilderness of the Lake and mountains makes for a great combination to entertain all.
We had several minor complaints over items that the owner could easily correct and hopefully will. All in all a good place for a family or group getaway.
Great space, needs attention
My large family met here for a week for a family reunion. On the plus side, the space is very well suited for a large family group — plenty of bedrooms, well spaced out, large common space for eating and game night. Lots of decks and a nice hot tub. Fooseball and pool table. All in all, it worked well for what we wanted to do. We came for a good time and the issues described below did not derail us.
On the negative side, this place was generally a little more run down than we anticipated. And there were some specific areas needing attention. The grill ran out of gas. Two of the TVs didn’t work. There were a lot of burned out light bulbs. And we discovered in the middle of cooking a turkey for an early Thanksgiving while we were all together that the oven did not go above 220.
Totally apart from the house itself, recent parking and noise regulations in South Lake Tahoe made our entire family feel unwelcome. Large portions of the community do not want private short-term rentals. More importantly, if you are going to South Lake Tahoe with a large family coming from different directions, be prepared for the giant hassle of moving cars 6 miles away to the casinos — the only place we could find that allowed overnight parking. You are only allowed four cars at the rental property. And be prepared for the party to stop at 10pm. One note for the owner — if you are renting a house with a 16-person capacity, you need to note these restrictions in your property description.
Hi Howard, Thanks for your comments. Burned bulbs you noted have been replaced. There is always a spare gas in the car garage. We've checked the GAS burner and it is working fine. All TVs have been checked and they are all connected to Cable and working fine. Please note: some guests at times move items around and connect their personal gadgets to TVs, change settings etc. Although many of our guests explore items on their own, if you need any help, please call our local contact 'Eddie', and he will help address anything you might need help with.
Overall great! Some fixes needed
Great area, great layout! Only complaint really was that there a very extreme leak under kitchen sink. Leaking dirty water being caught by a small trash can (that we kept having to dump out). Called the contact and they said there are aware of it and told me to just shove the pipe back on. It would not go back on. We tried. Also, not too many kitchen supplies were already there. We had to go buy a can opener. Overall a very comfortable house. House close to the main places in Tahoe, which was great! House needs some updating and fixes, but we all very happy for the most party. Two friends already asked me for the house info to book a stay for themselves so that’s great!! Thank you!
Hi Hannah, Thanks for your comments. Leak under the kitchen has been fixed and everything is in order for the next guests.
Excellent Cabin and Memorable Stay!
The house is very spacious, with a nice layout. Bedrooms are split between each floor with common / game areas in the middle. It's in a quiet neighborhood, a short drive to shopping or beaches. House has huge 3 decks with amazing views. We enjoyed the ping-pong, pool table and spa in the evening. Kids loved the game room games and the layout of the house was super fun for them! Sauna and exercise room were a plus. Everyone of our group has something to do at this house and spread-out through out the house really well. All the amenities provided were adequate. There is a Truckee River walk-able distance behind the house. Kitchen has everything we needed to cook and BBQ was located on the deck - the same floor as kitchen. Adults had a lots of fun and kids didn't want to leave the house. Overall, its an excellent home base for happy Tahoe adventures!
This house was perfect. We ended up having about 10 guys staying together and there was plenty of space and beds for everywhere. It was spread out very nicely too so not everyone was sleeping or hanging out in the same area. The house is a little dated but it has everything you might need for a stay and it all works (BBQ, freezer space, coffee maker, oven, plenty of storage space in the garage).
It's not too far from the state-line (maybe 20 minutes, $25ish UBER / Lyft).
Overall very pleased with it!
