"We had a party of 12 stay comfortably in this home. The owners communicated often, and in detail before and during our arrival. Everything shown in the photos, and details in the description are accurate. The owner's provide "About Town" notes to help us plan our daily activities. This is a gem in South Lake Tahoe. close, but not close, to Heavenly Valley Ski slopes and the casinos. We had a GREAT time."

"We stayed in this home with a large group of friends and coworkers over Thanksgiving. Overall, we had a very good time and enjoyed our stay. For the value, this is a great home to stay in and I would recommend it.
Pros: The home is a beautiful log cabin that looks much better than the photos here on VRBO, so use your imagination when looking at the photos. I was very impressed when I finally stepped inside : ) Large and fantastic hot tub that works very well and has a nice ambiance in the trees. Lots of bunk beds for single travelers (we did not have many couples in our group so it worked well), so I would recommend the home for larger groups of friends. The large living room did not feel cramped with our large group. You can walk <10 minutes down to the beach, or head up the road to incredible lake views. Casinos and bars are a short drive away, as well as beautiful hiking trails. the home is stocked with lots of towels, lotion, and soap for your use. The home is dog friendly, which is hard to come by and ideal for our group with two dogs. Also, maintenance was done quickly when we reported an issue with the toilet, which was pleasantly surprising over a holiday.
Cons: The lighting in the home could be improved. There are stairs up to the master and stairs down to the bunk rooms, which was fine for us, but may not be ideal for very young children. The floor in the master bedroom upstairs creaks very loudly whenever you walk up there, so whoever sleeps in the main room bedroom will hear every footstep. The dining room table was a bit too small for a large group at Thanksgiving. The dryer is also quite old and takes a long, long time to dry anything."

"We really enjoyed our stay in August. The weather was mild, and the location was close to Zephyr Cove and the Heavenly Gondola shopping area. We loved looking out onto the lake every morning from our breakfast table and every night from the hot tub! The high altitude was surprising, but we got used to it in a day."

"Sawmill Harbour house is as described and even more. This unbelievably located lakefront home is a true quintessential Tahoe cabin/estate. Perfect place to while away the days and nights. It’s very comfortable while not over fussy. Kitchen as noted is well stocked. Good BBQ with easy access to kitchen. Plenty of food storage and 2 refrigerators made it easy to stock up and eat in.. Great long beach for walks and a couple hiking trails are accessible without having to get in a car. Safeway w/ a Starbucks at Zephyr Cove is 10min away, while Costco, Trader Joe’s and Walmart are all 15-20 min down the hill in Carson. But one of it’s best features are the owner/mgrs.. who are very helpful and responsive..
A perfect Tahoe holiday and a privilege to stay here. Thank you!"
