Everything advertised and more.....

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my nephew's 21st birthday at this property for a three day weekend. Total guests were 9 plus three English Bulldogs. The owner/manager requires direct contact before confirming a booking... totally understandable with a property of this caliber. I also inquired ahead of time about my three bulldogs... just to make sure my canine kids would be welcome. As advertised... there is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath main house and two kitchenette cottages with full baths. I really enjoyed my cottage with wood burning stove (and the luxury of a little private time away from family). The property is in a populated area however all homes are sizable with plenty of land so you don't feel right on top of the neighbors. There is 5 parking spaces with a fenced yard that surrounds one side of the main residence and both cottages. This was ideal for the dogs. The main house is incredible with great room (open kitchen, massive dining and stone fireplace living room with a wall of windows with views that take your breath away). Several deck spaces from the great room (one with hot tub) lead down to the private beach. I met several neighbors who were lovely. This property is less than a 10 min drive to the Tahoe casinos and nightlife... 5 min to Safeway. The furnishings and amenities were all in good condition. It's obvious this home is well cared for.... It was a privilege to have stay here. I highly recommend this property for a family or group gathering of no more than 12 people (overnight). This would be an incredible special event place... my only hesitation would be to be respectful of the neighbors. There is plenty of opportunity for BBQ's, water sports and outdoor fun.... I would just keep the music and overall noise to a respectable level.... again the neighbors were lovely and deserve vacationing neighbors that are equally respectful of this very special place.

Amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We all had a wonderful time at this property. There were 5 couples and plenty of room for all. The cabins were comfortable but the double bed cabin was a bit tight for one of the couples. We would definitely stay here again if available.

My family and I had a wonderful vacation at this home. It's as lovely as it looks in the pictures and a great location - quiet but not too far from the slopes and restaurants of south lake.

Paradise found!!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Gruener Baum Lakefront House. The house has an amazing view, very clean and the kitchen is fully stocked with everything we needed for cooking. One of the best rentals that we've ever stayed. Would definitely rent again next time we're Tahoe.

Beautiful home, lovely lake views and a guaranteed stellar vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this home for my mothers 60th birthday and a great time was had by all! The house is updated, clean and well appointed...not to mention the beds, which are very comfy! The views are spectacular and having a our own beach proved to be a highlight for our children who love to explore and climb rocks. We loved having the two separate cabins for the older couples, which gave them more privacy and quite time when needed. The two younger couples and children stayed in the main home and when we were all hanging out, there was plenty of space for all 10 of us to feel comfortable, spread out and lounge. We had a blast and can't wait to come back during the summer so we can take advantage of the kayaks!
