Also as of JULY 1, 2017 Douglas County Nevada has increased the occupancy tax from 13% to 14%. We try to keep costs down but have to pass along as they increase. To the county's defense, they do allow less than 30 day rentals and want to keep the Lake Tahoe area as beautiful as possible while not disturbing full time residents!

About Dean & Diana Smith

Husband is a Chicago native, wife is from Northern California. During our travels, we have had both excellent & poor accommodations. Through prior B&B, hotel and, VRBO reservations, we have applied those better experiences to how our guests should be treated. We wish to make everyone feel at home.

Dean & Diana Smith purchased this house in 2010

Why Dean & Diana Smith chose Zephyr Cove

Lake Tahoe! What more needs to be said? If you have not experienced Lake Tahoe, you are missing world class golf, snowboarding, snow and water skiing, and summer water activities. An old volcano of fresh blue water, Lake Tahoe is surrounded by beautiful mountains in a quiet yet vibrant community. The California and Nevada side of Lake Tahoe each has their own unique qualities and charm.

What makes this house unique

We are actually 400 yards from Zephyr Cove Beach & Resort! Yes you can walk to the beach from our home. Clean air, beautiful scenery, biking, hiking, kayaking, while also enjoying outstanding dining and entertainment venues. If we want quiet seclusion or a fun night out, Zephyr Cove in South Lake Tahoe Nevada is the perfect location. OUR VIRTUAL TOUR LINK BELOW! 360 VIEWS OF OUR LOVELY HOME

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

White Wolf Cottage is fabulous! It is beautifully situated just above South Lake Tahoe, with great views of the mountains and lake. It's been updated on the inside and is very comfortable. My husband and I went for our honeymoon, but it would be a great place for families or a group of couples as well. We will definitely be staying here again if we come back to South Lake Tahoe!

Highly Recommend This House!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had such a great time at Dean and Diana's house and felt very lucky that Dean and Diana had us.

The house is in great location, close to Heavenly, shopping center, casino, grocery stores and convenient stores. Inside the house is very clean, warm, cozy and comfortable. The top floor master bedroom is beautiful with late view. We enjoyed the kitchen, sauna, especially the hot tub very much.

Moreover, Dean and Diana are very kind, responsive, well organized, and they replied emails and answered questions very quickly. We had no problem nor question checking in and out of the house. A family member of ours left her cosmetic bag in the house, Dean and Diana quickly found it and sent it back immediately. We really appreciate their help.

Thank you so much for having us. We will cherish our family time and memories we spent at Dean and Diana's house for a lifetime!

Great house for a large group

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over New Years weekend and loved our stay. The house is updated nicely and the 10 of us stayed very confortably. The view is amazing. Zephyr cove is a short walk away. Parking is tight (we were able to fit 3 vehicles but it was a bit of a struggle). We would come to this house again

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful weekend! The house is beautiful and we loved the hot tub and BBQing on the deck. So close to Zephyr Cove (walkable or a $6 uber drive) and just a short drive to the casino's. The owners were so accommodating and easy to communicate with. Thanks Dean and Diana for a great bachelorette weekend! Would love to go back again!
