About Laura

I have lived in South Lake Tahoe for over 20 years, & my husband for his whole life. My husband and I have been married for 24 years and have 2 children. We have tons of insight into having fun in Lake Tahoe! We built this home 9 years ago to enjoy the beauty of Tahoe. Our goal is to make your stay a memorable one. We are full of ideas for fun and adventure, as well as relaxation.

Laura purchased this house in 2006

Why Laura chose South Lake Tahoe

We built this house because it had so much surrounding land and was so unique to Tahoe. The views and privacy were so appealing after living in a 'house by house' neigborhood.

What makes this house unique

I love being able to take a walk out our back yard and enjoy gourgeous views through the huge meadow. Our dogs think they are in paridise! Mountain biking is as easy as opening your garage and taking off. The kids have endless exploration in the summer and their own personal snowmobile track in the winter. No need to look for a place to cross country ski, or snow shoe, it's right out your back yard! The abundance of wildlife that roam nearby has led to some beautiful photographs and daily observation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Laura,



Just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful stay at your home. The house was perfect for the 8 of us, we had a cancellation at the last minute from one sibling, so there was plenty of room! We loved the big kitchen to cook in and we grilled out and ate on the back deck while enjoying the beautiful backyard and sunshine. We biked the 100 mile ride on Sunday (amazing) and it felt great to have the hot tub and house to relax in after the event. We left all the sheets off the bed, loaded up the dishwasher and tried to clean up a bit before we all left. I was the first to leave Monday a.m, so I am hopeful the house was in good order. Thank you again, our stay was wonderful!

Spacious, Close to Everything

  • 4 of 5

Overall this was a great, spacious rental but with a few comments from our family that most of the bed mattresses were older (hard) and also the dining room chairs. For the price we expected higher quality. Other than that the house is as seen in the listing. Laura is great to work with and our family had a wonderful time.

Owner's Response: Thanks Jerry, Unfortunately you missed the replacement of the dining room table set by one week. It is often hard to get in to do these upgrades in the summer as there are guests checking out and checking in the same day. As for the mattresses, I do have several toppers. I wish you had mentioned something when you were there. It's always hard to find the right firmness for each guest. One bedroom is slated to get new mattresses in Sept. Sorry for any inconvenience, vacation rentals are always a work in progress. We try very hard to make sure the house is comfortable for all guests as we do enjoy having families, children and allow guests to bring their furry friends. Hope it was enjoyable nonetheless. Thanks so much for staying with us!

Wonderful Week in Tahoe

The house was clean and fully stock for cooking and included enough towels, outdoor chairs and tables.

We would definitely rent this home and would recommend it for others.

Awesome house and location

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house and location for a 12 person snowboarding trip with friends. The house had everything you would need and want to make for a comfortable, enjoyable stay. We will definitely be back soon. A+ everything.
