Don't miss Emerald Bay for another great day or Camp Richardson where you can sip on a rum runner on the beach at the Beacon Restaurant.

The Tahoe Island Drive area is especially convenient for Bay area visitors and is located just off US HWY 50. Towels and linens are provided in this rental along with TV, cable, and WIFI. There is no garage parking at this home.
No air conditioning, but with our great Tahoe summers, its rarely needed!
Sweet as Sugar! You will love the comfort of this home. It is just like the movies, family time or romantic time. Your vacation has begun, sit back relax and enjoy your stay at the Tahoe Sugar Shack.
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.
-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.
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.
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!
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!
Overall we enjoyed our stay and the cabin itself. There were some things left to be desired, but the good things definitely outweighed the bad. Would definitely recommend it.
- location (close proximity to Heavenly, casinos, stores, the lake itself)
- comfortable furniture (beds, couches, chairs)
- gas fireplace and easy-to-use temp control
- nice hot tub
- tastefully updated interior
- kitchen stocked with basics only (minimal kitchen tools and supplies, bring your own if you plan on doing any heavy cooking)
- outdoor grill was out of propane (i know it's winter, but still)
- extremely small trash cans (not practical for any group larger than 2)
