Why Your Wells & Bennett Team chose McKinney Estates

Because coming to the mountains is like stepping back in time. The best of Classic Old Tahoe resides at the Log Lodge. With its honey colored log atmosphere and many creature comforts, tasteful appointments, luxurious amenities make the Log Lodge the perfect relaxing escape. The nearby lake access at Chambers Landing (with restaurant and bar) or Sugar Pine Point State Park, (with unspoiled natural lake shore beauty) both within walking distance provide the perfect balance of forest and lakeshore experience.

What makes this lodge unique

A past guest recently said it best, 'They broke the mold when they built this place. We stepped through the door and back in time, yet somehow totally luxurious. Authentic and tasteful log lodge furnishings; not even a little tacky. Very well maintained and very clean upon arrival. Has a grand desk if you really have to work, but sleeping on the killer couch by the stone fireplace is better.... The large property is very private, with great outdoor spaces to hang out as well; and for the kids to run around and decompress. All you see out the windows is beautiful forest. You wouldn't know you're just minutes from Homewood skiing, restaurants, etc. The best of Tahoe without the tourist crush. Can you find the hidden door behind the bookcase?'

Pros and cons depending on personal needs/taste

  • 3 of 5

We just wrapped up our week-long stay at the Log Lodge on 7/29/17. Here are the highs and lows...

Pros:

Great for kids - they loved the fire pit, pool table, dart board, chess board and the short, safe walk to the beach.

Good location - close to small market as well as many beaches, and nearly midpoint to both South and North shores.

Kitchen - very well equipped, and as an avid cook I am picky about this. They did not disappoint!

Beds - very comfortable!!

Cons:

Dark and a bit cluttered - There are dark curtains on every window and it is difficult to fully brighten up the place with outside sunlight. Every corner and surface seems to be covered with furniture, bottles, knick knacks, etc. This rental is not for you if you like clean, bright, open spaces with little clutter.

Screens - It was somewhat warm the week we were there, yet we couldn't open all of the windows due to lack of screens. Some had screens while many did not.

Housekeeping - the house was clean enough to get by, but not fully clean. Corners and certain areas could use a bit more attention.

Kitchen storage - there are no cabinets set aside for food storage, so all food brought in must be strategically placed in different areas to keep it out of the way.

Great property and a funky cabin

  • 4 of 5

We loved the size of the property, especially it being fenced in. Our dog loved it an it was great for outdoor activities like frisbee tossing and evening roasting of marshmellows. The locations is perfect, walking distnce to the beach and the Tahoe wilderness trails.

The cabin was good, well stocked and clean. It is an intersting place, which was amuzing and fun to experience. The architecture of it with awesome log cabin beams is really cool. It was like staying at a museum with all sorts of antique like nicknacks. If you don't like clutter, it may be a bit overwhelming. Loved the steam shower!

Perfect Tahoe Cabin

  • 5 of 5

The log lodge is exactly what a log cabin should be. Beautifullly decorated rustic, cozy, and comfortable. Great kitchen, comfotable beds, lots of extra blankets to snuggle up on the couch. The shower sauna was great after a day on the slopes. The cabin is very spacious, great for families, large groups, and allowed our dog.

Log Lodge

  • 3 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Log Lodge! We loved the history behind the building of the lodge and all the period decor. It was very comfy and leaving was sad as we all had such a wonderful time. We enjoyed using the steam sauna after skiing. We skied at Homewood which made it super convenient. Your staff was well informed and helpful to us.

A few recommendations:

Have the BBQ Grill brought into the carport for use during the winter months as we had to go out ans purchase a grill. Also, the Wifi was not working properly as we were able to connect however we could not get reception. Therefore unable to watch movies from Netflix or Hulu. The dishwasher was not working and I noticed a puddle of water in the inside the first night. The cleaning person or handyman should double check these things. The front door was a little problematic even after he fixed it.

Thank you,

Sonia Pedlar

Owner's Response: Sonia, Thank you for your feedback on Log Lodge. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to host another stay for you in the future! The BBQ Grill putting in the Carport is a great idea and we will present that idea to the team to see what we can do next year. This winter has created a lot of unsettled weather and I have to assume that is why the internet was so choppy. Regarding the dishwasher our apologies for not catching this and thank you for bringing the issue to our attention. Thanks again! Your Wells and Bennett Team
