We had a family reunion with folks from Alaska, Oklahoma, Texas and Kansas... and of course California, and had a truly wonderful time. The house far exceeded our expectations, very clean and well equipped. Plenty of things to keep everyone happy, tons of books and movies, and every piece of WII equipment you could imagine!! Close to the lake too! The yard was beautiful, hot tub amazing and the creek out back kept the kids fishing for crawdads all afternoon!! We will definitely come back again...

Our family has vacationed in South Lake Tahoe for over thirty years. As our family has grown, we have needed larger and larger homes. This home is perfect in many ways, but especially for large family reunions. Not only does it sleep over 20, but there is so much room to enjoy each other in both the house and the yard. The river really does run through it and can be enjoyed from the large yard as well as the covered wrap around porch. The two separate living areas make it perfect for different groups to be watching movies, tv, playing games, or just visiting. The closest beach is in walking distance and is beautiful and very private compared to the larger beaches. This is one of my favorite homes ever!

Outstanding Experience for a Memorable Weekend
Outstanding Experience for a Memorable Weekend
We had a gathering of family and friends. RRTI was the best place ever. Everyone loved it and they all want to book it and come back again. We found the place and got many compliments from our friends. All the positive previous comments are true. It is spacious and comfortable inside and out. People gathered in the large kitchen and family room or out on the spacious porches or in the grassy backyard at the picnic benches next to the little stream/river. You can walk in the meadow next door. There was plenty of parking and privacy. The kitchen was well-stocked with all sorts of utensils and servers, pots, pans, trays, plates, etc. We made a dinner for 30+ one night and lacked for nothing. There were extra card table chairs and extra tables available. Stuff for kids. Video game room. There are plenty of comfortable molded Adirondack chairs for the porch or yard. Everything was in tip top shape. Mary was a pleasure to work with. We housed 14-15 adults (no kids, no bunk beds) and could have put in a few more easily. The bedrooms were ALL large and comfortable; no one got the short straw. Four bathrooms were ample for all. Big screen TV, WiFi, hot tub, washer/dryer - we couldn't use all they had. You should not miss this place.

My husband, friends and I all had an amazing weekend at this home. The pictures don't do it justice. The house is amazing, spacious and very well kept. The location is breathtaking. Mary is an absolute delight to work with. She is fast at responded to emails and is very kind. This house is no only good for couples and friends, but I can imagine it would be wonderful for family reunions, family vacations and so much more! Thank you for the WONDERFUL place to stay Mary and company and I look forward to renting again!

WE WILL BE RETURNING TO THIS BIT OF PARADISE

"A River Runs Through It" exceeded my expectations. It was everything advertised and more. We filled the house but also had a sense of privacy as the bedrooms are not all in one area. The little boys had fun catching crawdads in the creek and then tossing them back and them doing it again the next day. It is close to several beaches which we enjoyed with our boat. The kitchen was wonderful and had everything we wanted and space to store the food we brought. Our meals were served buffet style in the dining room and then taken outdoors to enjoy the beautiful weather and wooded yard. There was plenty of room with the extra tables and chairs provided. What a wonderful place to celebrate our 50th Anniversary / Family Reunion. I look forward to staying here again.

What a fantastic 50th Wedding Anniversary Celebration we had. The best description of this house is simply---"WOW". Everything you could possible want. Very spacious. We were only 14, but not once did we "bump into" each other. I definitely would return with my family. I would certainly recommend "A River Runs Through It" to anyone seeking relaxation, serenity, and a great place to enjoy the company of family and/or friends. Exceeded all expectations.

Our Bible Study group really enjoyed this place. There were adequate rooms for both the couples and singles and big rooms for our large gatherings. No wait for the bathrooms as there are 4 of them, with 3 or 4 people sharing each one. The location is good at the end of the street. The kitchen was impressive with granite countertops and modern appliances. We'll recommend the house to our friends and family. Our group might come back next year to this memorable place where we held our first annual retreat. This house was a blessing to us. To all, peace and joy!

This property has all the amenities you need to feel perfectly at home. The kitchen is stocked with high quality pots, pans, utensils, etc. and all of the bedrooms are very comfortable. The kids loved the Wii and the large snow play area in the yard. The owner is very accommodating and ethical. I highly recommend this property.

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: My husband Dave and I along with our very good friends and co-owners Don and Joyce live in beautiful Santa Cruz California. We have 2 grown children and one grandchild and Don and Joyce have 3 grown children. We all feel very fortunate that all our children also call Santa Cruz home! Thank you for considering our Tahoe home!!
Why the Owner Chose Other South Lake Tahoe Properties:
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!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
