Amazing place, perfect for kids

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with two families in Tavern Inn and really enjoyed the closeness to Squaw Valley and the lake. The house looks much better in reality compared to the pictures, it's in great shape, beautifully furnished and stocks everything you might need. There were some extra toys that the kids loved and a pack 'n play for the baby. Kids can play in a mini forest right outside the house, there is also a playground in walking distance. There seemed to be an issue with the internet working on phones in particular which we didn't look into in more detail because we didn't need it. Totally recommend it!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your helpful comments, I am glad you like #54 Tavern Inn. We have recently added a second Suddenlink high speed internet in addition to the AT&T wireless service and are in the middle of a conversion between the two, which probbaly caused the confusion. There shouldn't be any problems in the future, we use the condo ourselves and find good wifi to be essential. Regards, Bob Cranmer-Brown

The location served our purpose. Not bad.

  • 3 of 5

We stayed here due to a family wedding in Olympic Valley in August. The distance was fine although definitely too far to walk. The shuttles do not run regularly in the summer, we were told.

The condo mostly met our expectations although fairly outdated. It was mostly clean although there were some things that could've had a little more attention prior to our arrival.

The first of the two negative factors was that there is no television in the main living room area. We wanted to watch a movie as a family but couldn't in that area. There was an old tv in the loft area with many VHS tapes, but it was too hot for us to sit up there. That leads to the larger negative was so incredibly hot in there with no air conditioner. The coolest that the thermostat ever read was 82 degrees even at night (and yes, of course, the heater was off). That is with the fans blowing, windows open, and the screen doors open. It averaged about 87 degrees during the daylight hours in the main living areas and felt even hotter upstairs in the loft. The heat made it very difficult to sleep and we felt like we had to spend whatever time we could away from the condo to avoid the heat.

The communication time frame with the owner's representative was always quick and polite so that was positive. The size of the condo was spacious and not too cramped.

Overall, if the condo had some minor updates to deal with some of these inconveniences, it would make for a much more pleasant stay.

Beautiful condo

  • 4 of 5

This home was spacious, with first class fixtures and furnishings. It has perfect accessibility to the Olympic Village ski slopes and shopping just miles up the street . It was unfortunate that we rented during excessive heat in the area and this condo was perhaps typical (?) with no central air conditioning in the condo. Heat could not quite be overcome by the fans provided during our summer visit. Owner was gracious and quick to respond to questions.

Beautiful Condo Perfect for Ski Trips

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our group of 6 people. There was enough beds for each of us and the living room/table had plenty of room for us to sit and share stories after a day of skiing. The shuttle service to Squaw was great especially on the busy weekend so you didn't have to worry about parking. The owners were very very helpful in helping is find the misisng Garage door opener when we arrived as well as promptly replacing a light that burned out in one of the bedrooms. I would recommend this place to group and would stay here again.
