This property is in a perfect location, close to town but away from the noise of town. We had plenty of room for the 9 of us to relax or play. We will definitely stay here again.

The house was perfect for our large group. Plenty of room for everyone. Patio was the place to be.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. When we were home we spent our time out on the large deck which sat all of us for every meal. We were close to what we wanted to do. Our reason for going was for the 4th of July holiday. This by far was the best fireworks show I've seen in a long time. The house was surrounded by pine trees and nature. Didn't see any bears but we knew he came as he left his mark on the garbage bin. Our 14 year old was thrilled to have a basketball hoop as he was out there playing while we were home. I would highly recommend this place to a large group. We would consider this place again when we head to Tahoe City.

3rd Annual Wilson Family Tahoe Reunion

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been vacationing in Tahoe for three consecutive years now, and I have to say that this house was a favorite (of the three different homes we have stayed in) for many of our family members. The inside of the house is well maintained and fully stocked with linens, kitchen necessities, etc. The beds and other furniture are comfortable. It is located close to all that Tahoe City has to offer, and very close to the lake itself. We had some unusually hot weather on the first two days of our stay, and, as with most homes in Tahoe, there is no A/C. But as soon as the owner (Herb) learned of our heatwave, he suggested we go to the hardware store and buys some fans, which helped out a lot with cooling off the house (and he reimbursed us for the cost of the fans). The outside of the house (driveway) was cluttered with pine tree debris, but there was a nice big broom available, and once we swept it away, it was a lot more appealing to our arriving guests.

Owner's Response: Thank you Polly!! Based on your feedback I will be installing a whole house fan in the next few weeks to help remove the interior hot air upstairs in the evening. In Tahoe there is typically no need for AC since the nights are beautiful. We want our guests to come back and have a great experience in one of our favorite locations. Thanks for working with me.

Great Location & Clean/Spacious/Cozy Home

  • 5 of 5

We love the house and it's great for all times of year. Very close to Tahoe City shops, bars/restaurants, the lake/beach, and grocery stores. The house is quite big and spacious, yet still feels cozy and has a perfect cabin feel.

The owner, Herb, has been wonderful to work with and is always quick to respond and help (if needed).

Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Plenty of room for 11 people and a pet

  • 4 of 5

This cabin was comfortable and cozy. There were enough beds for 11 of us. The beds were comfortable with nice comforters. It was great to have both an upstairs and a downstairs common space - the kids hung out in one and the adults in the other at times. The pool table and hot tub were great. Nice laundry area which we used to store the food we brought for our large party. The kitchen was pretty small for so many people and there was not enough storage space for our large group, which is why we used the laundry room area downstairs. All in all, it worked out fine as we cooked all of our meals here including Thanksgiving. The table accommodated all 11 of us, we pulled a few extra chairs in from the downstairs porch. We couldn't get the wifi working and Herb responded right away with the suggestion that we unplug the router and replug it again. This worked! The house was well located near the end of a street where there was a nice trail through the woods. We were also just a block or so away from the Grandlibakken resort which has a small sledding hill and skiing. There wasn't much snow until the night before we left. The house also worked well for our two dogs. We would stay there again. It would be nice to have some spa towels for the hot tub. We just used our shower towels and threw them in the dryer to keep them usable.
