Why Suzanne chose Homewood
We have rented and stayed in many locations around the lake for the past 30 years and we know the West Shore is the best shore. The area is beautiful and quiet. The lake is always quiet on our McKinney Bay as the prevailing winds are always from the West. It is the best side of the lake for water skiing and boating.
What makes this House unique
The view is great and when you are on our deck you feel like the lake is right there.It is a very short walk to the lake down our little walk to the lake. It is a short walk into the little town of Homewood to have a great meal at the local restaurant or a latte at the market.

Amazing view, great for multiple families
We stayed with another family and had lots of kids. The space is great for giving the kids a place to play. Beds were comfortable, hot tub was great, kitchen was well stocked, and the view was amazing. Suzanne was very helpful and accommodating prior to our stay. Would definitely stay here again. Only complaint is it is not a true 5 bedroom. 4 bedrooms with beds, a playroom with futon and a dining room with a pull out couch that was broken. We made do though and had a great time.
Thanks for the positives remarks regarding our house. We were not aware that the pull out couch was broken. Thanks for the heads up.
Amazing home -- so much character and charm with AMAZING views.
I've started three reviews. But what I want to say is this is a home with character and charm. It is a place the owners vacation - not just a VRBO - and they care for it AND YOUR ENJOYMENT so so so much.
Suzanne - the owner - called us multiple times to make sure that the plow man was working right, that the house was in good working order for us, that everything was good. It was amazing. Generally speaking, you never hear from the owner of the house. Suzanne wants to be bothered if things aren't perfect. She wants you to call and let her know if things aren't 100% as they should be. And she also wants you to love their home as much as she does.
We will be back here. (BTW, the ski lease on this is an amazing value, we missed out this year).
Beautiful property. Great Lake view.
The property is clean and well stocked. Very comfortable and roomy. We had 8 adults and 2 young children and there was plenty of room. We enjoyed the yard and fire pit as we were there in October and it was cool at night. We were most impressed by the view from the home and deck. So beautiful. We felt very welcome and at home. We would recommend this property to anyone wanting to enjoy the true essence of Lake Tahoe.
Perfect Family home, views, beach, location
My hesitation for leaving a review is simply based on selfish reasoning, as I want this great family home to always be available when I want to enjoy another amazing getaway to Tahoe. We have stayed at this vacation home for the passed two years. It was perfect for our large group of three families of twelve people. The rooms are spread out and private, there are four bathrooms and a very spacious game room in which the teens enjoyed taking over for their private accommodations. All along the back of the house there is a huge deck with amazing lake views, tables for dining and a BBQ, heaters, hot tub, a flat lawn to play games, and a fire pit to warm up to while you watch the sunset and breath the fresh mountain air. The pictures on the site are exactly what you will find, a clean, roomy well loved family home stocked with everything you would have in your own home. The location could not be more perfect, just a short walk to Chambers Landing for an evening libation and fun people watching, get the infamous Chambers punch. A private beach and pier are also included with this property and the best beaches in Tahoe are on the West Shore and are all very close by. There is lots of bike trails so bring your own or rent some just down the street. The owners are very sweet people, happy to recommend any information regarding local points of interest, such as restaurants, sites to visit, boating or sports rentals, etc. Suzanne and Stan are truly sincere with wanting your family getaway to be very special and your stay in their Tahoe home a memory to always cherish. Thank you! We will be back!
The property is well maintained; home close to the Lake.
The home has ample bedrooms for our family of 9. Loved the deck off the dining room and living room. The grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed the grassy area below the deck. The kitchen is rather small and if the dishwasher is open you cannot put the dishes away in the cupboards above. The kitchen is very well stocked though the dinner plates are too large to place in the dishwasher so we needed to hand wash them. It is wise to remember to bring your own bath and hand soaps (kitchen soap provided) kitchen sponges, paper towels & additional toilet paper, foil and plastic wrap. Did feel that more kitchen towels would have been helpful as we were preparing all of all meals in the home. Luckily, one of my daughters had brought some from her home. We all enjoyed the Homeowners Beach area. Would recommend this as a wonderful place for a family vacation. We would certainly consider coming back in the future.
Thanks for your review.
We are sorry that some of the items mentioned were not adequate. The cleaning service usually provides those items and we will make certain that the items will be provided in the future.
Best Thanksgiving EVER!
Our family of nine (children ranging in age from 20 months to 17 years) spent four nights at this wonderful home over Thanksgiving ... it was perfect for us ... the kids were in and out of the snow, the game room and Bears Den were favorites ... and the views were all picture-worthy. The home is very well equipped and gives you the real Tahoe feel. Some of the wonderful wooden boat replicas do need to be moved to a top shelf ... out of the reach of toddlers. :) We hope to experience this vacation rental again ... maybe in the summer this time. I can't imagine dealing with a more warm, friendly & helpful owner ... made the trip even better! All-around fabulous experience!
Hiking nearby, 10 mile bike path out front door, Cross Country Skiing at Olympic trails which are only @ 2 miles away. Chambers Landing is only 3 blocks away with a large public beach, pier and bar. Great place for the teenagers and college kids. Only 1 block away from McKinney Shores Homeowners Association private beach, pier, BBQ.
