Very nice property in a great location, a few updates would make it 5 star
These reviews are tough for me because five stars implies perfection, or such a great experience that it overcomes all the minor nits.
Anyway, I spent four nights with various members of my family and we all had a great time. The location is really close to destinations in North Tahoe, Truckee and Donner Lake. Reno is less than an hour away. The resort/village is a few minute drive away, nice but a little disappointing. I suspect in winter it’s a different story. The great room is fantastic and we spent a lot of time there playing pool, eating and watching movies. The views from the balcony are fantastic, beautiful trees and the hint of a small creek nearby. Nice little touches like adorable bears are scattered throughout the house to find, and of course there is the main bear that greets to at the door which everyone loved.
As for the nitpicks, first on my personal list would be internet. Perhaps there is no other option (though it seems like cable should be available) but the DSL speeds were horrible and I had to manually reboot the modem a few times a day just to get it to work. All of us, even my 82 year old parents, rely on the internet these days, so this is an important amenity right next to basic utilities.
Other suggested updates would be better pillows and perhaps an upgraded sofa. It’s a great size but so low that the taller folk don’t get any head support. Some of the shower fixtures may need some servicing as well, from what I heard. And of course there is the matter of the “mystery room”, which should probably be dealt with sooner than later. Obviously I watch too many horror films lol. It got pretty warm and stuffy during our visit, so some ceiling fans would be great in lieu of air conditioning.
All in all though a fantastic experience. I hate being nitpicky but I think it’s the only way to help owners improve and help potential renters to differentiate between listings.
Cozy and Complete Tahoe House
This is our second time here. Absolutely wonderful perfect house for families with kids. Lots to do in the backyard, lots of space in the living room. Lots of EVERYTHING. Owner is organized and easy to work with. Seamless rental and amazing Vacation. We love this place. Highly recommend!
Fun and authentic cabin!
We loved this cabin! Great location and great support from the owner. She was very responsive and nice!
Loved the shuttle to Northstar Village!! We skied at Northstar (just a couple minutes shuttle ride away) Diamond Peak (about 30 minutes away) and Mt Rose (also about 30 mins away)
The Hot Tub had a couple minor issues and didn't seem to get super hot. However, it was great for the kids and worked out fine for us anyway.
I would rent this cabin again and recommend it to a friend!
Great location! Great stay!
Stayed the weekend with my teammates and their significant others for a weekend of fun and team bonding! Plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms to meet our needs. The decor was eclectic and cozy! I'd describe it as Black Bear Diner meets Tahoe wood cabin! It was just what we needed to unplug play some card games and relax! I brought along my two year old son and he had a blast counting all the bear decor.
Owner was extremely communicative and very friendly! The shuttle to the resort was so convenient!
Thank you so much Bernice for your kinds words! So appreciate your time.I do hope you and your group will come back another time.Loved having you and want to see you back again! Chris Goethals
Perfect New Year's trip
We had a great time at this comfortable and well-laid out cabin. This is a great option for a multi-family group, nine of us had more than enough room. Even though it had the convenience of its proximity to the village at Northstar, this cabin was a destination on its own. Well-stocked kitchen, comfy beds, games and a pool table - we wanted for nothing.
The highlight of the place was a very large living room/dining room open space. Our group spent a lot of time in this area enjoying the company of one another in that space. Between the pool table, chess board and board games we had plenty to keep us busy while all hanging out in the same room. The owner made the process very easy as well. She was very responsive along the way. The place had everything we needed. The only complaint our group had was about the pillows. I guess you should just bring your own pillow if you are picky about those kinds of things... Everything else was amazing!
