Great Ski House!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of seasoned skiers raved when we first stepped into your house. It really is setup well for a group or family in true skier style. The bedrooms were exactly as pictured, with good amounts of space and all the amenities (even have robes in the bathrooms).

The main space with dining area, kitchen, fireplace and living room were a perfect place to relax and hang out after a long day skiing. The hot tub was in perfect working order and easy to maintain. All directions for use of the place were easy to follow and ensured that previous guests were taking the same care we did.

After getting 7 feet of snow over three days (most of which were dry powder), we were very happy that the driveway and culdesac were plowed quickly.

We absolutely recommend this home to future renters and hope you have the same experience we did.

Thank you

Jim & crew

Comfortable home in great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 7 adults stayed over a long weekend and we loved this house!!! The entire home was very comfortable and clean. The decor was lovely and everyone felt at home. Our favorite part was the kitchen/dining area. We are a group of "foodies" and this was the first home we've rented where everyone could comfortably hang out in the same area while cooking. We often had 2 or 3 people cooking, with a few sitting on stools at the counter/bar and the rest sitting at the huge dining table nearby. The kitchen was better stocked with cooking gadgets/dishware/pans than any other home we've rented. We were a little nervous about renting a home so close to town and only a block off the highway. It turns out that was one of the features we loved best about this home! We walked to The Tahoe House Bakery each morning for coffee. We brought bikes and accessed paved trails right by the house. A few of us went into town to go through a local museum (very cool) and there are restaurants and grocery stores nearby. Everyone agreed the convenient location was perfect! We sat out on the deck a lot and were never bothered by the mild sound of traffic. The hot tub and gas grill worked great and the beds were very comfortable. Charlene, the owner, was great to work with and responded to all our questions quickly. Very positive experience and we hope to come back.

Great Location and Beautifil Home

  • 5 of 5

My family of 7 stayed for 3 nights and liked the location and home. Close to downtown and the famous Tahoe House Bakery a must stop! You can either walk or bike to downtown in 5-10 mins. Accommodations are wonderful, comfortable beds, plenty of room for all the guests to stretch out. Arrived and the house was very clean. Kitchen has everything you need during your stay to cook meals. Charlene and Ed are very easy to work with and will make your stay enjoyable.

Comment: Home is close to main Hwy and the noise may bother some folks. Did not affect our stay.

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 5 year old and 8 month old for a week this past February and absolutely LOVED it. The location was great and we really enjoyed walking to the Tahoe House Bakery around the corner (a must try), even in knee deep snow! The house is close to a lot of nice restaurants as well as the grocery store, yet you still feel like you're away from it all while there. The kitchen was very well equipped and the beds were very comfortable. There were sleds available for use and a nice little sledding area practically right outside the front door. We also loved being somewhat close to Truckee as we have friends who live there and we love walking around the shops and dining up there (ask for Larissa if you go to the Truckee Starbucks!) The hot tub was a fun addition, especially while it snowed! Charlene was a pleasure to work with and we wouldn't hesitate to rent this house again!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four stayed for a week at Charlene's wonderful home... my boys are 3 and the great room was a perfect layout for playing and hanging out together... the details are well thought out and the house truly is more beautiful in person. My favorites about the house include the beds and the bedding - SO comfortable! I have not slept that well in years! The kitchen was excellent for cooking and well stocked with everything you need. The deck is cozy and peaceful and the jacuzzi was a hit with all family members. The house is a little close to the main road but the traffic is minimal at night and we were not there that much during the daytime to hear it. We were walking distance to Tahoe House Bakery which has pretty good food (a little pricey - but it is Tahoe) as well as coffee and desserts so it was easy pick up a little something special each day. Must find your way to the PDQ Market for deli sandwiches in Tahoma - BEST Pesto bread ever! You will not be disappointed! Pick them up on the way to Emerald Bay and picnic there. Fabulous. Secret awesome beach st D.L. Bliss campground.

Thank you Charlene for renting to us!! We will be back for sure!
