About Chuck Harrison

My wife and I absolutely love Lake Tahoe. Not only is it one the most beautiful destinations in the world, it offers so many outdoor recreation opportunities. We enjoy hiking, kayaking, biking, cross county skiing, swimming and relaxing on the beach. We spend many summer and fall weekends at the house with our golden retriever, Truckee.

Chuck Harrison purchased this house in 2004

Why Chuck Harrison chose Bijou 1

Lake Tahoe is our favorite place in California to vacation. It was recently voted the most popular vacation destination in the world. It has so many outdoor recreation opportunities to choose from and the lake is absolutely beautiful. Tahoe has something for everyone...mountains, lakes, beaches, casinos, golf, nightlife, and amazing weather.

What makes this house unique

Within walking distance from the house, you can enjoy: private gated beach access, lake, marina with boats you can rent, kayaks, canoes, or you can bring your own boat and rent a slip. On the private beach you can get married, eat at the glassed in restaurant, use the playground, play volleyball, rent kayaks, paddle boats,and canoes. At the Lakeside Marina you can bring your own boat or rent one. You can walk to world class golf at Edgewood Golf Course, casinos, restaurants, Heavenly Village, night clubs, and shopping. There are also great bike trails, and hiking trails nearby.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family would like to thank you for such a wonderful cabin. It was so nice to feel like we were at home. We came up for a wedding and will be back next summer with a lot more memories.

Sonora, CA

Fantastic location. A cabin with character.

  • 5 of 5

Our 6th summer renting cabins in S. Shore w/friends. The best cabin yet. Great backyard for just chilling out, lawn games, BBQ. Walking distance between beach, casinos, Edgewood golf, Harvey's Outdoor Arena and shopping/restaurants just can't be beat. Hope to be back next year!

This house was quite disappointing.only good was location.

  • 1 of 5

Carpets in rooms were disgusting. There should be a note to bring slippers because it was so dirty that we had to walk around with shoes. Sheet in master had human hair on it. Obviously not cleaned, considering vacationers pay for cleaning. No closet. Drawers filled with junk including left over shoes in a drawer, stuffed animals in another, on and on. Had to search whole house to find trash bags. Left multiple call messages that were not even bothered to be answered. Like light in kitchen that was out and kitchen, the only place you need to see and work was so bad.

Sorry, I would be ashamed to rent such a place in such poor condition and get so much money for it. If

Owner's Response: Dear Keyvan,, I’m terribly sorry you were disappointed in our cabin. I will be speaking to my housekeepers with regard to the sheets. The carpets do need to be replaced, there is no getting those stains out. There is no excuse I can offer for the cabin itself, it was built in 1922, we added the second bathroom about 10 years ago, and there were no closets back then. I do offer my sincere apology, Karen Harrison

Unresponsive Owner

We loved the location. 2 blocks to beach. Amenities were ok, but outdated & not much for comfort. The cable for TV was not working. I called each of the 3 phone numbers given to us two times each over the course of Friday & Saturday and left messages. I sent an e-mail through VRBO and through the e-mail address I had for the owner and never received a response to my calls or e-mails. So much for waking up Sunday to a home cooked breakfast & the Raider game. We had to go out instead. Additionally, I had to reach out to the owner to request my deposit back after the time window, he didn't do it on his own. NOTE: The backyard was nice, but we were unable to spend any time out there because there was an extreme amount of mosquitoes throughout the day. There was OFF left on the patio table, but there were too many mosquitoes to fend off.

Overall: Not Satisfied with Stay - and definitely not for the price we paid.
