What makes this house unique

This home was built by hand by the owners. Every beam was cut by the owner in SoCal, numbered (some numbers are still visible), and transported to Lake Tahoe by truck. Once there, the home was assembled on site. Once the home was complete, the owner began making all of the furniture and cabinetry. Some of the original furniture has been replaced, but we as a family have done our best to preserve the original furniture as Opa would have wanted.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

It's an older cabin with rustic charm so if you are looking for shiny and new this isn't the place for you... but it was clean with great accommodations! It has everything you need, BBQ, hot tub, your own privet dock, pool table, and plenty of room! We had a party of 7 adults and didn't feel crowded at all. My favorite part was having access to the water, which is calm and protected, right off the back deck. I would definitely stay here again and the owner was easy to communicate with and fast to respond! Great overall experience!

Beautifully hand-built home with extra room and charm to go around

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the house! It is even bigger than the pictures depict and far exceeded my expectations. Based on a negative review about the pool table and spa, I had my concerns. However, I think that reviewer was expecting far too much. The spa was perfectly clean and the pool table, was totally fine, and we enjoyed many, many games. Considering the price, size, location and open layout of the house, it offers a great value. The only “con” I would say is that the main floor and loft can get very hot in the afternoon. The same beautiful wood construction, open layout, and huge glass western view can become a negative on hot days. We happened to go with very high temps in Tahoe, so this may not be an issue the majority of the year, but its something to be aware of.

The owner, Gertraude, was very responsive to my questions, very accommodating and a pleasure to do business with! Also, knowing that the house was hand-built by the owners, it really does offer some extra charm. As long as you aren’t too picky and can appreciate the value of the house based on its location, size, and layout, I think you will be very satisfied.

Absolutely amazing

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't ask for more from this vacation house and it's wonderful owner. He was very helpful the many times I contacted him and always replied swiftly. The house provided all the amenity that it said it would and more. Waking up every morning to a beautiful view of the snowy mountains and shining lake was one of the best experiences of my life. The house was very clean when we got there and throughout my 5 day trip I did not encounter a single pest.

Beautiful Home but Broken Amenities

  • 2 of 5

The two main reasons we rented this particular home in Lake Tahoe, because there was a TON of other options, was for the hot tub and pool table. When we arrived the hot tub was green and very slimy and all of the pool sticks were broken and/or missing the tips. So both the hot tub and pool table were not able to be used during our weekend birthday celebration which was completely disappointing and even a little frustrating. When I called the contact number there was little to no response. I was expecting either someone to come out the first day of our stay to fix these items or for some type of credit for false advertisement but did not receive either. Besides these main concerns, there were spider webs on the sliding glass doors, dirty plates in the kitchen, and broken items throughout the house (fan did not work, broken furniture in living room, etc).

The house itself is very pretty but I was completely disappointed.

Owner's Response: I apologize that you were unhappy with your stay. There was a delay in the response due to the fact you didn't contact the local emergency number in Tahoe. Once I received your messages, I took care of your complaints , even discounting the rate of your stay. The other reviews of my property seem to speak for themselves. G Nye

Car: recommended

This large waterfront chalet style, mortise and tenon home in the Tahoe Keys has a pool table and it's own private hot tub on the lower deck. With it's own private boat dock, water access is as easy as walking out the back door. Stand up paddle board and kayak rentals are available nearby. Just drop in from your boat dock and paddle through the keys and out to the lake. Our kids regularly fish right off the boat dock.

The house is about ½ mile away from The Wilderness Bike Trail head. Bike rentals are available there. It's a great ride through the forest to Camp Richardson, where you can stop for some of the best ice cream around, get lunch, or have a day at the beach. Just passed Camp Richardson is the Taylor Creek Preserve. There they have guided nature hikes through some of the most beautiful untouched areas of South Lake Tahoe. As an added bonus, there's also Stream Cutout Profile Chamber where you can observe the local underwater wildlife in their habitat.

Tahoe Keys Property Owner's Association amenities include the use of 7 tennis courts, 2 pools and 2 hot tubs (indoor and outdoor).
