Property was clean, inviting and conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

The property was simply lovely. Comfortable beds with well organized instructions regarding the jacuzzi and WiFi. Convenient to 2 ski resorts, Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley. The owners respond immediately to questions. I can not say enough good things about this property. My friends and I were very impressed and happy with our choice to stay at this property. We look forward to another trip and hopefully staying at same property.

Absolutely loved this cabin, it was the perfect spot for a quick winter getaway with my girlfriend (now fiancee!) Exactly what we needed for getting away from the craziness of city life for just a little while.

The house was perfect for our family's vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Thank your for sharing your wonderful home with us! The house was perfect for our family- spacious, comfortable, fully stocked, great location and the hot tub was a total perk after long hikes, lake swims and just to relax. We will definitely be back!

Extremely disappointing

  • 1 of 5

We booked a 3-night stay at "Alpine Meadows" in July, to be with our children and grand-child near Lake Tahoe .The on-line photos of the house portrayed it as full of light, rather spacious and with a good-sized outdoor deck. None of this was evident once we arrived. In addition to being smaller and darker, the house appeared to have been unoccupied and unattended-to for quite a while, and was unwelcoming, to say the least. The house was very dark (even with lights on), and much and smaller than it had appeared in photos. The windows and window sills appeared to have not been cleaned, and had spiders and spiderwebs on many of them. The outside deck was quite small, with only 2 adirondack chairs and a small eating table and chairs, which were covered and tied up with a large tarp and rope, as was the barbecue. Not very welcoming! The deck railing was unsafe for a toddler, given that it had about a 10" space between the deck floor and the bottom railing. The bedrooms are on the lower level and felt cave-like. The bed in the master bedroom gave us back-aches. There were several houses quite close by, and the view out the kitchen window was of a large heap of trash and debris at the neighboring house.We decided not to stay longer than one night, and texted the owners with our concerns,and also requesting a partial refund, to which they did not reply. Maybe this property is adequate in the winter for skiers, but it was not at all comfortable as a summer rental.

Wonderful home in Alpine Meadows!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Tahoe Luxury Modern Cabin! The living room was perfect with the fire place, the kitchen was modern and large, the bedrooms were spacious and beds were very comfortable. Everything is modern and cozy! Highly recommend this house winter or summer!

Next to Alpine's Meadows ski resort and squaw Valley. 4 miles to Lake Tahoe and Tahoe city. Just up the street from River Ranch and rafting down the Truckee River.

Alpine meadows road is in Avalanche zone. House has never been hit since built in 1980

Alpine does routine surveillance of the mountains in big storms to maintain the safety of residence and skiers. They have a team that goes out and dynamites on mountain if they need to disburse snow in large storms the road can be closed until it is plowed. Our house is on the main road so is plowed on a regular basis. Our neighbor is also a snow plower and if needed can plow driveway. Our garage is only few feet from main rd so not hard to dig out. When they are servicing the road do not go on the road. You will know when the road is open when you see traffic on the road. There are more detailed instructions in cabin.
