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.

Waterfront Tahoe Keys Home, With Private Boat Dock And Hot Tub
average rating of 4.28 based on 25 reviews

Great Value!

  • 5 of 5

Pros: big kitchen table, pool table, hot tub, plenty of kitchen items, big open living room area, and gas grill

Cons: very creaky floor (every step from the upstairs can be heard from the rooms below) and TV could be nicer

Overall this is a great spot if you are looking to be in a place that you don't have to worry about breaking everything accidentally (like many places that look like they are out of a magazine) and want to have a large(r) group of people to be able to comfortably hang out in one common area. Most importantly, you pay a way cheaper price to be in a very nice area and the owner is VERY responsive.

Cozy Cabin!!!

  • 5 of 5

This old school cabin was everything we expected and more. From the spacious living room to the cozy bedrooms we were able to relax and entertain for a group of 12. The views were gorgeous and being able to wind down in the new hot tub was perfect. The owner was easy to work with. We can't wait to plan our next family gathering here.

Children hazards

  • 2 of 5

We reserved this house for 8 adults and 4 toddlers. After we unpacked we noticed one of our kids was walking around with a live mouse trap in their hand. They were set all around the house and we were not made aware of the hazard. Also, the railings are wide enough for a child to slip through so you can't really let a baby crawl around.

Owner's Response: My children and grandchildren have stayed at the house when they were toddlers, I was never concerned about their safety. I notified the Pest Control Co. about the mouse traps.

Not what you would expect

  • 1 of 5

First walk through as we arrived was "Wow". After a few hours of being there, "Ugh". House looks like it wasn't updated in a long time. Knobs on stovetop were unreadable. Floors were very squeaky. Mice running around, had to by traps. Tons of spiderwebs as if no one has stayed there for months. Would consider staying again once house is updated and rodents gone.

Owner's Response: The carpet, couches and hot tub were replaced in May of this year. The house has been occupied all summer, therefore, I can't imagine tons of spiderwebs, and I have a contract with a pest control. The floors are squeaky because of the wood construction ( cabin). The kitchen is the next up date in the house. I have forwarded your note to housekeeping.

Very Cozy and Cabin feel.

  • 4 of 5

Everything was great. The house had plenty of room and was comfortable as well. My only complaint would be in regard to the stove top. The unit is very old, uneven, and the knobs do not work very well anymore making it difficult to turn off/on and adjust temperature. However, would recommend the house for a family vacation or for any group of a large size.

Rustic and charming

  • 4 of 5

House was clean and ready when we arrived. the house is very large, we had nine people in our party and had more room then we needed. If you like rustic old style heavy wood beam construction you will love this place, if you want five star accommodation with you will not. It is very warm and inviting, floors are very noisy because of the wood construction, so if you have people in your party that are early risers the bedrooms down stairs will hear every step. For my family we loved it and would rent this unit again. The owner are very responsive and easy to deal with.

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).
