Beautiful home, perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5

We walked in the door and were amazed at the spaciousness of this beautiful home! The pictures are good but the real thing is so much better! We brought our son, daughter and 3 grandchildren for a vacation in Lake Tahoe and had an amazing time! John left a couple of sleds for the kids (who had never seen snow) and they had the time of their life. From the gourmet kitchen with everything you could possibly need to the beds and bedrooms, roomy beautiful bathrooms, games in the closet, views and a quick walk to the lake everything is just perfect! We have discovered a wonderful yearly retreat with our children. Judith and John are amazing hosts who attended to the smallest need. We highly recommend this perfect home!

Amazing home, fantastic owner

  • 5 of 5

As advertised, beautiful home right on the lake and easily fit our group. Judi, the owner was incredibly responsive and worked with my party to make our stay easy despite weather delays on the way in. The open layout was perfect for a large family or group of friends to cook and hang out. I definitely plan to stay here on future trips to Tahoe!

Love Zephyr Cove

  • 5 of 5

The Tallac house is absolutely beautiful and comfortable. So much room and had everything we needed for cooking, relaxing and enjoying Lake Tahoe. The location is perfect for hitting the beach, hiking or visiting the casinos. We had a great vacation and recommend this home to anyone who enjoys what the region has to offer. Judith was great to work with and we had no issues at all.

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Lake Tahoe for many years on vacation and this is one of the nicest vacation homes I've stayed in. Very clean and comfortable. Very well laid out, kitchen well stocked with everything you need for cooking, nice quality bedding and towels. It's only a short walk to the beach, which is beautiful. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this property as a great vacation spot. The owner checked in with us to make sure all was as we expected and needed. You can tell they really want you to be happy and enjoy your stay.

July Guests

We had a great time. The house was nice and well maintained. We loved how close it was to the private beach (just a short walk away). We enjoyed horseback riding just down the road and two great meals near Zephyr Cove. Judi was very helpful and responded right away to our questions. We would definitely consider this house again on our next visit to Lake Tahoe.
