We had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our weekend in Tahoe! The cabin was perfect! It was nice to have a fully functioning kitchen to cook our meals. We were meeting in Tahoe to celebrate my mother-in-law's 80th birthday, but while we were there, the family suprised my husband and I with a baby shower. The cabin was perfect accommodations for everyone. The large deck is amazing! The kids loved the video games and game room! It was much better than trying to organize group activities from various hotel rooms! Geri was super sweet and was easy to work with!

Family reunion that was enjoyed by all 10 of us.

  • 5 of 5

We were all very pleased with the home we rented, especially our 4 grandkids, ages 10 and 12. There was a wonderful game room that even the adults enjoyed, a hot tub on a huge deck, a great new kitchen and all the essentials items needed to make our meals. The kids did a Tree Top Adventure, and most of us, especially the kids spent lots of time in Lake Tahoe. We hiked around the area and down to the marsh. The only drawback was the steep stairs up to where the one bedroom with a bathroom was located, and our 78 year old Grandpa got more exercise than he wanted, but it was good for him.

Fun for all ages and a great value

  • 5 of 5

This house hit the spot for a housemate reunion we held, with guests aged 7-54. The house fits 14 comfortably, with enough chairs and tables for everyone to eat out on the deck, and a spacious indoor dining table with benches. The kitchen is well stocked and the hot tub, pool table and arcade games were a huge hit with kids and adults. And the best thing about this house is you can WALK to Lake Tahoe! Our whole crew was able to walk to the closest beach and to the local park to see the fireworks. It was great to be able to leave the cars in the driveway. Other houses might have fancier decor, but the wonderful location of this comfortable house makes it a good value and a great spot for a family reunion. And, we had a very exciting bear sighting from the deck! Keep your food inside!

And thank you for your wise words about the bear. Keep your food inside! I hope you will think of us again when you plan another trip to Tahoe.

Awesome cabin

  • 5 of 5

We hit town before all the major attractions were open and before all the tourists hit town for the major gold tournament. However there was plenty to do in the cabin. On Sunday it snowed and the weather called for indoor activities. The cabin accommodated our every needs and entertained us all when we weren't able to hit the town. The sauna was awesome and relaxing. My favorite pastime was the gameroom with the many arcade games as well as the pool table.

Awesome House in a Great Location with EXCELLENT service

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly what we were looking for! It was perfect for our group of 9!

Geri was always very responsive and accommodating throughout the booking process. Any questions we had were answered promptly. The service was also incredible. We ran out of propane at 8:30pm and someone came by within 15 minutes to drop off a new tank.

I highly recommend this home based on our experience! A+++
