Lovely Stay at Tahoe
Lovely Stay at Tahoe
Recently, my husband and I stayed at this Carnelian Bay area house in the woods. Upon arrival we found an anniversary gift from the owners as we were celebrating our 29th. Nice touch! We enjoyed the master suite....light and roomy with great soaking tub while the college boys used the bedroom area downstairs for the two nights they were there. After a day of skiing, they enjoyed the use of the hot tub too! The main living areas were again roomy with the kitchen having all the cooking supplies you would need. A friend of ours who is a Tahoe local said it was one of the nicest rentals he has seen. This was a very comfortable rental in all ways. Thanks for the stay.

Perfect North Tahoe group get-away house
Perfect North Tahoe group get-away house
This beautiful and spacious house was a pure luxury for our group of 3 couples, 3 children, and a nanny. The house layout, including the adjacent studio, offered plenty of bedroom privacy as well as dining and living room common space. The well-equipped main kitchen made for wonderful group meals, and the large Jacuzzi under the stars and beside the pine trees certainly gave us our money’s worth (actually far less expensive than B&B rooms). The location is ideal for North Tahoe skiing within minutes of several resorts, and for dining out at many great local restaurants. The owner is exceptionally friendly, knowledgeable, accessible, and accommodating. Our group will certainly return!

A true awesome white Christmas

We had an absolutely amazing time at this house. The house was exactly as described and it was a very comfortable and memorable experience for our family. The highlight was the jacuzzi spa outside, sipping on chilling white wine was the snow was pouring down. We would certainly be happy to stay here again.

Nice master suite
Nice master suite
I have mixed feelings about this home/cabin. I really liked the master suite - comfy bed and a HUGE, very pretty bathroom. The kitchen was also very nicely done. We brought three young adults with us and they said that their beds were significantly uncomfortable - they felt that the beds might be fine for a younger child though. The owner was very nice about a kitchen sink clog and fixed it without an extra charge. The three young adults enjoyed the jacuzzi - the only problem is that we were in the master suite while they were in the jacuzzi and the jacuzzi has a vibration you can hear thru the master bedroom. The livingroom seemed great as a ski weekend type room but a bit too basic for my comfort level to just hang out and talk, read a book, etc. If the entire cabin was as nice as the kitchen and master suite it would be incredible!

Owner response: We really appreciate your feedback on the hot-tub. We checked it out and found that the motor/pump had "bearing wear" from all the use it was getting. We ordered a new motor/pump and replaced the old one and now everything is peaceful again!
My family had a wonderful stay at this house. It's very comfy, well kept and kid friendly. The back yard was perfect for snowplay; we carved a great sled run which my son enjoyed for hours. The owners were very accommodating and helpful which made our stay that much better. We hope to be back soon!

Thanks for an outstanding experience!
Thanks for an outstanding experience!
We decided to initiate what will hopefully become an annual ski outing reunion and this was our first year of planning. We couldn't have asked for a better place to call home for a week or better hospitality. From booking all the way through follow-up after our stay, Joe & Jen were amazing and gracious hosts! The home is beautiful and had everything that we could have wanted. We spent 4 days skiing at local resorts as well as some snowmobiling and plenty of sightseeing. The hottub made for a wonderful way to end each day and the kitchen and entertainment center provided ample opportunities for us to cook our meals and unwind in front of the fireplace and some TV. Thanks for an amazing start to what we hope becomes an annual tradition! We'll let you know when we plan to return to Tahoe.

beautiful, spacious house
beautiful, spacious house
we mostly chose this place because the pictures showed large wide-open spaces that we thought our 18-month son would enjoy. it was a great choice for us. large rooms (for the most part), comfy couches (we napped a lot :-), and a well-stocked kitchen. the master bedroom is enormous, and matched with an amazing bathroom with a huge jacuzzi tub and a large walk-in shower. a second bedroom has a more regular-sized feel to it with a queen mattress. the third bedroom is the only cramped room in the house, with a bunk bed and a twin squeezed into a single space. oh, and the hot tub was fantastic. we lucked out and had some decent snowfall - nothing quite like sitting in the hot tub with snow falling on your face.

Perfect Tahoe Getaway!
Perfect Tahoe Getaway!
We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home! The upscale house was spacious and clean and stocked with everything our family needed to enjoy our Tahoe vacation. We especially enjoyed grilling on the deck and soaking in the hot-tub under the stars! Rafting down the Truckee River was a huge "hit" with our kids and one of the highlights of our Tahoe experience. All throughout, the owners were responsive and helpful. This was such a great experience that we're already planning our return this winter for a family ski trip!

We stayed for only 2 nights and wished it were for a longer period of time. The house was super clean when we arrived and looked exactly like the pictures. It is simple and elegant. There were 6 of us on vacation for a girls weekend and the house provided everything we needed to relax and have a good time. There was more than enough room for 6 adults. The hot tub was wonderful during the day after going white water rafting as well as for the cool evenings. The beds are very comfortable, there are more than enough towels provided and the floor plan is nice and open so you are all together. The casinos on the North Shore are a quick 15 min drive if you want a night out. Swimming in the Trukee river is a great day time activity. I would definitely recommend this house and plan to reserve it again for my next stay in Tahoe. Thank you again to the Ormsby's for sharing your house with us.

We planned a spontaneous trip to Tahoe and found this house on CraigsList. Joe was a pleasure to work with in setting up the reservation and providing clear trip instructions from direction, entry instructions and home notes. The location is quiet and relaxing. Entering the house you walk in to a warm and inviting home. Convenient to restaurants, food shopping, and skiing - our trip was perfect. We were told to just pack our clothes and toiletries and we would find a stocked kitchen and towels. Well, he was right! It was my first time renting a home for a weekend and feel as if this experience spoiled us!

About the owner: We spend the majority of the year at our home in San Diego raising our two kids, ages 10 & 12, but love to sneak up to beautiful Lake Tahoe whenever we can.
