About Lori Engelhardt

We are a fun-loving couple with one major issue - the inability to agree on whether snowboarding or skiing is the cooler sport. When there's not snow on the ground we love everything else that Tahoe has to offer like hiking, kayaking, biking, visiting the beach and water-skiing.

Lori Engelhardt purchased this house in 2012

Why Lori Engelhardt chose South Lake Tahoe

We fell in love with this cabin. It's comfy, cozy, serene and fits so many of our friends and family, plus we couldn't be closer to Heavenly or the lake. It's ideal for our lifestyle and we hope that you and your family and friends enjoy it as much as we do.

Perfect for the family

  • 4 of 5

We chose this property because it was one of the few within our price range that accommodated our extended family. The layout was great and comfortable. We had family from Europe, South America and the East coast for a celebration, with ages ranging from 85 to 3. Having three floors gave us all privacy and our own space when needed. The house had a few issues that needed attention, but nothing that interrupted our stay. The location was very good, close to town, lake and stores. Many of us walked to the lake and scootered into town and shops. The property manager, Lori, was the best I’ve ever dealt with. She was approachable, helpful and quick to respond to my emails and calls. We had a great time, Tahoe is gorgeous and would love to be back sometime!

Very nice, lots of room, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week-long family vacation here: my wife and I, our five adult kids, daughter-in-law, and 3 year old grandson. It was especially nice to have multiple bedrooms on three separate floors; after spending the day together, you could retreat to your own quarters and have some personal space/time if desired. The kitchen was well-equipped: we took turns cooking dinner every night except two (once when we ate out and another when we carried out pizza and had a picnic at a nearby park.) My wife and I stayed in the master suite. Although the upper level, where the kitchen, living room, laundry room, and master suite are located, got warm during the day (it was about a high of 85 degrees and sunny every day that we were there), the master suite stayed cooler just by us keeping the door closed and blinds down during the day. By evening, we could open the windows and cool things down even more in the bedroom; had to close our bedroom windows a couple of nights because it got quite cool. So the sleeping conditions were great, and I am one that likes it cool to sleep. Great mattress in our room, as well. Family members said that all the other bedrooms, located on lower floors, were quite comfortable, too, both from the point of view of temperature and also accommodations. The hot tub was very nice and spacious and was enjoyed several nights. We used the grill twice and it worked fine.

The only constructive criticism is that the outdoor furniture was somewhat dirty and had cobwebs. The first kids to arrive wiped the furniture down and we enjoyed it without problem the rest of the week. Since the rest of the premises were clean, I suspect that the last rental had been some time before we came; so even if the cleaning crew did wipe down the furniture after the last guests, enough time elapsed for it to need another cleaning. This was a minor and understandable inconvenience but could be attended to in the future.

A tip that is recommended by the property manager's notes but which I didn't understand initially: close the windows and put down the shades around 9 am or whenever you head out for the day. Counter-intuitive to me but works in that house and climate.

Lori, the property manager, was very kind, thoughtful, and friendly. On short notice, she allowed us in earlier than check-in. She responded promptly to emails. And she even picked up her phone on a Saturday evening when I called with a non-urgent question.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you had a wonderful stay, and would love to have you and your family back in the future. It was a pleasure communicating with you throughout the process, and we very much appreciate the feedback on the deck chairs. We will ensure our cleaning crew double and triple checks all the outdoor equipment during the summer, and especially when we have space between bookings! Thank you for taking great care of our home!

Great home for large groups

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this home! We had 4 families and there were plenty of rooms and bathrooms for everyone. The house was clean and there were full sets of bath towels for every guest. There's also a washer and dryer. The property manager was excellent! She was very helpful, accessible, and responsive. We visited during the summer and there is no air conditioning in this house, so the rooms on the middle and upper levels do get a bit warm, but there are ceiling fans in every room which help and opening the windows in the evening also helped to cool things down. The rooms on the lower level were pretty consistently cool and comfortable. The location of the house is also very convenient and central to the attractions in Lake Tahoe. We would definitely stay here again!

Great Spot for a Group of Business Travelers

  • 5 of 5

This house made a great home for a week long business trip. The location was convenient and there was more than enough space for six people to stay.

Lori was a fantastic host and responded immediately to all of our questions. She even helped us retrieve a lost item. Definitely recommended!

Great house and location!

  • 5 of 5

Only draw back was the hot tub took a while to heat, so if you're going to intend to use..turn up right away. Also, the neighbors are VERY anal about the cars parked in front of the house. Passed law allows 4. But even with 4 we got called, and the local authorities were very nice in explaining & the host would let you know as well and apologize for the call lol. So just be aware and diligent with the car situation as it is not the hosts fault at all. Otherwise, tons of space, great location, everything you would need is provided IMO. Thanks again!

Owner's Response: Danielle, you are so correct about the parking situation in South Lake! Neighbors are vigilant with the maximum of four cars allowed. I apologize for them calling when you were clearly obeying the parking rules! I appreciate your sense of humor and we'd love to have you all back in the future!

Great Cabin! We will stay here again

  • 5 of 5

Our time at this cabin was wonderful. It snowed the day after we got there. Absolutely an amazing time in Tahoe. The kitchen has everything you need to be a perfect chef! Plenty of room for the family and kids. Please note this cabin has many stairs, buti it made me get some exercise that was needed! I would definitely stay here again. The family loved it and we look forward to our next trip to Tahoe!
