Tahoe family wants to share it's history.
Burt Family purchased this house in 1902
Thought we would let others enjoy the Tahoe we know too.
Old Tahoe feel at it's finest, with the luxury of a newly built home. What more can you want from this area? Lake, pier, beach access, great location, come and stay.....you won't want to leave.
Our family chose this house and property to have a family reunion and it was plenty spacious enough for the nine of us. We enjoyed all having our own bedrooms and hanging out together in the gorgeous kitchen and living room. There is a glorious lake view from the kitchen, dining table, living room and two upstairs bedrooms. It was also really nice to have the bathrooms connected to all the bedrooms, except one downstairs bedroom. Our favorite part of the property was definitely the dock area. We spent a lot of time down there and had it to ourselves all weekend. It was especially nice having coffee out there early in the morning while my brother strummed his guitar. Our teenage boys loved playing frisbee on the long dirt driveway at the back of the house. The neighbors next door were nice and kind if they ever threw it over their fence. I also loved the fact there was no wi-fi or TV. We never watch TV on vacation anyway. My boys learned how to play card games with their Grandparents and spent hours laughing in the evening playing cards, instead of electronics. We would absolutely stay here again and would recommend it to friends and family.
The rental has some nice features, but the head-smacking reality is the house itself is not “lakeside,” and the shared living space is cramped. We had 8 - 10 people here for a week in July, with additional day visitors, and thoroughly enjoyed the dock, but would have wanted a better understanding of other property aspects before renting.
That gorgeous picture window shown in the photos is right on the highway, not facing the lake, which makes bedrooms noisy. Bed, bath, and kitchen space are all good, but the killer is the one and only SMALL family room. A sofa, love seat, and arm chair seat about 6 or 7 adults, and a kitchen table squeezes 8 when you add folding chairs from the basement. Not much room for a high chair without blocking a walkway. The small back patio has a BBQ, but no furniture. There’s not much to improvise with either - no kitchen barstools, no coffee table, and not much open floor space for kids to plop. No family movie night because the only TV is an old 15 inch in one of the bedrooms.
The property’s waterside is about a 40 yard walk from the back door, past a couple of cabins behind the house and down a little tree lined path, making it visible only from the dock itself. Outdoor seating is 2 picnic tables behind one of the cabins, and some seating on the dock, which is lovely, splinter free composite. Like a lot of Tahoe, the waterside is small, rocky, and shallow, but you can walk to Moondunes public beach a few houses down the road for nice sand and kid friendly swimming.
The owners are friendly, but as stated in the description, at least one or two are on the property almost every day, which may or may not be your thing.
This rental has it all - spacious bedrooms, large family room/kitchen area, parking, and your own private pier! Friends and I celebrated my 30th birthday and the 4th of July at this gorgeous house and we have already started throwing out dates to go back not only to Lake Tahoe but specifically for this property. Amazing location, home, property and great hosts.
This home has everything from beauty to solitude. The bedrooms are spacious and the kitchen/great room is ideal for family gatherings. Big windows bring light and amazing views of the lake into the home. The backyard is perfect for badminton, snorkeling, kayaking, and fishing. Having spent 20 years renting homes on Tahoe we realized quickly this home was a rare find. We didn't waste our precious vacation time driving to the lake, finding parking spaces, or hauling our toys and cooler to a crowed beach because we had our own private dock and waterfront. Another unique attraction is -the owner- who is an expert Tahoe historian. His knowledge of the area is not only fascinating, but provided us with helpful "local" hints on how to enjoy the area to its fullest. If you are looking for an ideal vacation spot at a reasonable price, this is the house.
We stayed at this lovely home in Feb 2013 for Presidents' Day weekend and it was gorgeous and perfect for us (6 families). The kitchen is amazing and was thoughtfully stocked with coffee, seasonings and spices and everything you might need, and the guest rooms were beautiful. Each room upstairs connected with a bathroom and there was even a "secret hideout" in one of the rooms that our kids (aged 5 - 7) just loved. The view was stunning, and we enjoyed sunsets down on the dock looking out over Lake Tahoe....just beautiful! The bathrooms were modern with tubs and thoughtfully equipped with soaps and lotions just like you would find at an upscale hotel, with plenty of large fluffy towels. Yes, there is a "ghost house" by the lake but that didn't even register on our experience-- we loved it and loved the convenience, too (house is right by Safeway and less than 10 miles away from NorthStar, Boreal, Squaw Valley, and Alpine Meadows). We would definitely stay here again!
As we walked in, the kids room was 20 feet from a Hwy curve..backyard..was just dirt.. And construction including chains and exposed nails. As we went down the path to the beach we were welcomed by dilapidated housing.. Thought I was in the movie Deliverance.. Left. Fought with the guy to get our money back... Settled for half.. Hope he saw Judge Judy about false advertising! Trouble.. Don't stay here unless you're okay with exposed pipes in the house..kids room on a curve...rusty construction.. Oh I forgot about the garbage not being in a bear box!
