Good for Large Gatherings, with Some Drawbacks

  • 3 of 5

We rented Powder Moon Lodge for Thanksgiving 2017. Ten people stayed in the home and we invited several more for dinner. This property has attractive features for entertaining and drawbacks in terms of living space, one of which was a major omission on the part of the owners and why I would never rent from them again. The good: Large upstairs living area with tasteful decor in generally excellent condition. We were able to fit 12 people around the large dining room table and more at the bar. Kitchen was spacious, modern and well equipped for cooking The Big Meal. Entertaining and Thanksgiving dinner worked well here, and for that we were pleased. The bad: The home is advertised as a 5-bedroom. The 5th bedroom is in fact a separate unit built into the rear of the garage. Any guests who stay there must access it through the garage. It contains a furnace and water heater in a closet. Upon arrival, we smelled the strong odor of gas in this unit and called a professional to investigate. No gas leak was found and the owners subsequently informed us that the odor was due to a recent propane tank refill. This is unacceptable. It is also unacceptable -- and illegal -- to house guests in a room with a furnace but no carbon monoxide detector. My brother in law decided to let his teenage sons sleep in this unit, which is a reflection on him. I requested a partial refund for the rental of this 5th room, but the owner declined. Other issues: Porch lights non-operational in front and back, so our guests were greeted and departed in the dark. No extra trash bags and scant soap. Also, as other reviewers have stated, the master bedroom has no sound insulation from the main living area, so sleeping in late there is impossible with others about. For these rates, we expect better attention to detail and have received that attention at other rental properties in Tahoe. I hope the owners of Powder Moon Lodge make the following changes: State in their description that the 5th room is a separate unit in the garage. Pay more attention to details that would make their guests' time there more enjoyable.

4 (or more) couples can stay in real comfort!

  • 5 of 5

2 master suites (1 upstairs + 1 down) each with private bath, plus a bedroom with 2 queen beds that share a bathroom. Plus, there are 2 more full double beds that are in other shared rooms. Unique for Olympic Valley (VRBO listings) where a lot of the occupancy #’s are done with twins and bunks crammed wherever. Not here. Everyone feels comfortable in beautifully decorated and fully appointed home in a great OV location. I also like dealing directly with the owners – versus property managers. Mike & Debbie are well connected locals that live nearby. They are a pleasure to deal with. If you want to host a group in comfort your search is over. We stayed a long Fall weekend for family wedding, but hope to return in the winter.

As one reviewer noted kitchen & main living area are on the second story. Pretty common in mountain/ski vacation areas, but could be a factor if accessibility is an issue for any guests.

Cozy place for lots of people

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous place to celebrate my birthday. We stayed with 11 adults and were more than comfortable. The kitchen was well-stocked and there was a TON of seating. One piece of advice, the upstairs master bedroom is right off the main living room with some large cutouts between the rooms, so it's not super private or quiet, but the bathroom up there is amazing. Thanks Debbie and Mike for the wonderful time!
