About Katy Tufts

My husband and I love Tahoe,there has been a home in my family since 1947. I have spent every summer here growing up. We have an adult daughter currently living and working in Reno. We love to travel and the outdoors.

Katy Tufts purchased this house in 1998

Why Katy Tufts chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

This home is built by the same builder that built my family house. It's so close to ever thing and TART is just a 1 minute walk if you don't want to drive. I love to have the lake so close.

What makes this house unique

This place just fits the Tahoe lifestyle. It's comfortable, homey and casual. The perfect getaway. So much to do within walking distance. There is public transportation a 2 minute walk away.

Comfortable family weekend !

  • 5 of 5

I spent the whole weekend with my family in this house. Very special decoration with local element. It is 1 king + 1 queen + 3 separate single bed +1 sofa bed can hold 8-9 ppl. Luxury king bed in master room. Full equipment of kitchen tools including everything you need. Reasonable price. On that weekend there was a heavy snow in lake Tahoe. So good to enjoy hot pot in the house!

Warm & Cozy weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My friends & I thoroughly enjoyed the place. Its right at the border of Carnelian Bay and close to all the local markets. The kitchen is well stocked with all the utensils. Katy has written down instructions for how to use each and every appliance. The house easily accommodates 7 people. The Diamond Peak & Mt. Rose ski resorts are just about 30 mins away. Would love to come back next time!

Ohh.. forgot to add. Katy is very responsive in her messages. And we didn't have any issues with regards to payment, accommodation, check-in/check-out etc. You should be in good hands.

We really loved this house! The kitchen is so well stocked, it is cozy and cute, and thank you for being so patient with us Kathy when we were totally incompetent trying to find the key over the door! The kids were 'shocked' not to have Wifi, but in the end, it turned out to be a blessing!

We loved Katy's dog-friendly Tahoe getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Katy's dog-friendly Tahoe getaway was perfect for us. 3 rooms, one King bed, a queen and a set of twins, plus a pull out couch! The kitchen was fully stocked, even with all the spices you could want! It was clean, and decorated like you'd want from a mountain getaway! The front porch is great, its right across from the lake with walking distance to a few restaurants. Katy was super friendly to interact with, and we plan to stay there again in the future.

Thanks Katy!

Comfort, location, charm, reasonable cost and a wonderful host - what more could you ask for ?!?

  • 5 of 5

This cottage perfectly fit our needs and far exceeded our expectations. And, as a bonus, we were able to bring our canine family member! The home was an ideal fit for our seven adults group. The location was prime for access to Squaw and Alpine (Northstar was also very close by). Katy couldn't have been a more gracious hostess. And beach access was a 1/4 mile away - perfect for taking our dog for a walk. I highly recommend this charming home for your vacation or long weekend.

Owner's Response: Jeff thank you for the fantastic review! I enjoyed having all of you as our guests. I really try to get to know my guests so I accommodate the needs.It's great that you walked to the beach with your dog Lily and the weather was good. I'm happy that we had great snow for your crew to go skiing and the close proximity to all three resorts gave a variety of places to ski. We try to keep the cost at an affordable rate so that you can enjoy your vacation. I'm so glad that you had a great at time and you are welcome to stay time. Katy
