'This amazing home was the absolute best place my family has ever rented in Lake Tahoe. Nothing like being right on the beach with access to the meadow, river and Lake! We also enjoyed being on flat ground and right off the bike path. We will definitely be back.' Stefan Todorovic

'We came for the world class skiing, gaming and entertainment, but ended up spending most of our nights relaxing in the hot tub and cooking in the gourmet kitchen. We even used the cinema room to have a couple of movie nights with our kids. I would recommend this property to anyone who wants a high end home on the lake.' Jeremy Jacobson

About Jason Griffin

We purchased The Ultimate Lake Tahoe Lakefront Retreat because of its location on Lake Tahoe and the fact that it is surrounded by Forest Service land on one side, the lake on another and the Upper Truckee Meadow on another. It offers the type of peace and tranquility highly sought after by anybody looking for a peaceful retreat at Lake Tahoe.

Jason Griffin purchased this estate in 2008

Why Jason Griffin chose Al Tahoe

I hope anybody who rents our beautiful home will experience the same tranquil and peaceful feeling that we get when we are at the home.

Better than we even dreamed. A Tahoe paradise.

  • 5 of 5

It was quite a search trying to find the perfect place for our family reunion. But we found it here. It was a celebration of my 70th birthday and of our loving family. My three grown children, their kids and spouses, gathered for a week at this lovely, lavish home set among tall pines with a view of gorgeous Lake Tahoe. When we arrived, Jason was ready by phone to answer questions and welcome us. Everything we needed was there--top of the line beds, linens, bathrooms, kitchen appliances, dinnerware, etc. The kitchen was huge and allowed for multiple cooks so no one was stuck in the kitchen alone. There were bicycles, and we had some great bike rides. The beach is a short walk from the house, so we took our kayaks there and played in the water and on the beach. There are so many things to do in the area that appeal to all ages, we couldn't even do them all and definitely want to go back. Everything was very clean, customer service was superior and cheerful too. It was everything it promised to be and more. I would recommend this beautiful home to anyone unless they wanted the same week we did. Just kidding. Thank you Jason. We will treasure the memories of our family vacation here always. Judy

Perfect for large groups

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect and Jason was very helpful and responsive. easily slept 11 people very comfortably and could have fit more. The kitchen was perfect and had everything you'd need and there is ample space inside the home. Everything was very well maintained and check in/check out procedures could not have been easier. The location of the house is great, too. the backyard is big and it has a nice hot tub that isn't shown in the pictures. We will definitely be coming back to this place soon.

Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5

This house is awesome and perfect for a weekend on Lake Tahoe! I had a group of 11 people at this home for labor day and it could not have been a better home for us. Huge home with a ton of space for all to sleep. Home is in good shape and the kitchen was perfect for cooking for everyone. House has some quirky features but overall I would stay there anytime.

The house is a great location. It is right next to the water and beach. While it is not a private beach, it is pretty secluded and was not heavily footed. There is a public pier right next to the beach which allowed us to dock our boat. The casinos are only about a 10-15 minute cab ride away.

Jason, the house manager was easy to work with and any and all questions were responded to in a timely fashion. I look forward to staying at this house again in the future and I will recommend to anyone that is looking for a rental house in Lake Tahoe.

Great place for family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here the middle of July with our kids and their spouses and the gkids. What a great place for families. We loved the beach so close, the yard was amazing and well kept. (the gkids loved playing Tball on the lawn) Sorry Jason, one of the kiddos hit the plastic ball up on top of the half tree where it still sits) . We loved having our coffee out on the deck each morning.

The kitchen is nice and big and well stocked. Jason made himself readily available for questions we might have and made sure we had everything we needed.

We were a little apprehensive at first seeing that there was construction across the street, but it was never a problem.

Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Not the ultimate Tahoe Lakefront

  • 3 of 5

The home is located at the end of a street and has beach access via a public pathway behind the home. It is about a 100 yard walk to the beach. We were fine with that.

The home itself is pretty much as shown in the pictures with a nicely remodeled kitchen and baths. The main level is on the second story and the first floor has a cool playroom and second master bedroom. The house has a terrific, huge backyard with a beautiful lawn. The problem is that access to the lawn is awkward, either through the front door or through a small door on the first level.

Our main complaint is that the home is in disrepair. The windows and screens were filthy and many screens were missing. The bedroom carpets are stained or torn. There were chairs on the main deck but no table. The barbeque is a wreck. The front stairs need to be rebuilt.The spa cover was broken in 2 pieces. The house needs a thorough scrubbing, inside and out.

The house has some nice features and we still enjoyed our vacation but it really needs some serious TLC before it can be called an ultimate Lakefront home.

Top notch vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

What a house! Very private and close to everything. The house has been kept up in great condition. The back yard lawn was amazing and pretty much has its own private beach 2 minutes away. Jason was great to work with.
