No air conditioning, but with our great Tahoe summers, its rarely needed! The items pictured in the yard are not for the guest use, its the owners. There is no fires allowed in the woods.

As pictured. Very nice and clean home.

  • 5 of 5

This home was very clean and nice floor plan for 6. We were able to visit, cook and all eat together. I saw reviews of sectional not being comfortable and no propane for BBQ. The sectional was fine, no complaints and the BBQ was a nice BBQ with a full tank of propane. The only issue we had were there were no outside chairs out and because they are pictured we were expecting to enjoy the patio with outside chairs. However we called the property manager and she came and got us chairs and was very pleasant. I didn't not feel the reminder emails during our stay were intrusive at all. We will return to this home again next year.

Place was great. Unfortunately the rental agent is too obsessive and controlling.

  • 2 of 5

I understand how some guests can be disrespectful and trash a property, but I think paying the high price for this modest location should give the renter the benefit of the doubt until they prove unworthy. I really dont appreciate automated emails full of threats in the middle of my stay, when there has been no cause for concern and no complaints. If the house is too precious to let your guests relax, perhaps it shouldnt be on the market.

Owner's Response: Hi Neil, Thank you so much for writing a review about this darling home! I agree, it seems that I am a little over the top on the garbage and some items. I wish everyone was as kind as you are and took the garbage out to the bear box so the bears won't break into this lovely home from so much garbage being left. Reality is its not a hotel and we have issues with animals getting in and breaking in and hurting peoples property. Just that weekend we had 2 bears break into the garage and left the hot tub covers open. Pretty much destroyed the inside of the garage and ruined the hot tub cover and destroyed the inside of the hot tub. Renters don't live here and they really don't think it will happen up here in Tahoe. The cost of repair was a little over $10,000 so you can see why I am so careful with these peoples properties and their hard earned money to make sure people respect and know what can happen in the Mountains where bears and other wild animals live and would love to eat your left overs. We hope you did enjoy your stay and hope to see you again someday! Happy Holidays to you and your family.

nice home, conveniently located, for short or extended stay in South Lake Tahoe

  • 4 of 5

-listing description is totally accurate, great location, cute house, very functional

-clean and well-maintained

-management responds fast

on the negative, guidelines are a tad controlling and could be formulated in a more consumer friendly way. Weird sewer odor in the toilet of the room in the back.

Renter Beware

  • 2 of 5

As it says in the description, there is no air conditioning, in addition the 5 windows in the living room don't open and there is no screen door on the front door so there is no way to so there is no way to get any of the Tahoe air in. The living room / kitchen is all one room, yes cozy, but when you are cooking dinner on a typical Tahoe evening it makes for sauna like conditions. My wife and 3 college age kids were not happy.

Be aware that the neighbor's house, specifically their kitchen window, sits 3 feet from the fence line, is higher, and looks right down into the hot tub, deck, and BBQ area.

As a previous reviewer mentioned, the BBQ was out of propane but it was winter. I emailed the agent multiple times prior to our arrival asking to make sure the BBQ worked, it didn't, out of gas (summer time).

There is a beautiful wood island to eat your meals at, even though the house is for 6, there are only 4 bar stools. We took turns standing up so we could eat our meals together.

Great location!

Owner's Response: Thank you Dave for writing your review for the rental we call Sugar Shack. To respond back to you about the air conditioning. No we don't need air conditioning, nor do most of the homes here in Tahoe have air conditioning. That is why it states it to you on your rental agreement. Windows in kitchen and living room open up for the fresh mountain fresh air. I know it was a beautiful 40's in the evenings and high 70's during the day. Few things, The tank was freshly filled, When you called me on it AFTER you left, we took it in and the valve was not working, or it had been turned so hard it was broken. Then you called me for not being able to turn the TV on at 11 pm at night when you arrived, I gave you instructions and a phone number to call as Charter is great about teaching people how to turn on the tv's with their remote. Hot tub you complained it was old, when in fact it is less then a year old and with a new deck surrounding it. The pictures are exactly how the house is. Its a sweet smaller cabin in the woods. I'm sorry you don't seem to be mechanical if you can't turn on a tv, pushed all my buttons on the hot tub to turn it completely off, and turned a valve so hard on a propane tank to breaks it. And the windows and doors open up in this cabin! We hope you find happiness in your next stay at another location!

Sugar Shack a sweet success

  • 4 of 5

What a positive experience! From the tasteful decor to the convenient amenities, we found the Sugar Shack to be a wonderful setting for our first vacation in several years. The bed was comfortable, the hot tub relaxing, the kitchen well-stocked, and the fenced backyard great for our dogs. Nothing is perfect, but we found very little to criticize. About the only things that could have been improved was lighting (bathroom, kitchen, and living room) and the comfort of the sectional. Thank you so much for sharing this property with us, and we would love to book again next year!

Lovely Cabin, Nice Amenities!

  • 4 of 5

This place was cozy yet modern and had great amenities - hot tub, fireplace, Nest thermostat, top notch washer/dryer, plenty of towels and blankets. Nice big back yard. There was a lot of paperwork but everything worked out fine. Rate was high but we booked really late, so I understand why. Overall a great stay!
