About John Lyons

The owners are Northern California natives and have been spending time in Tahoe all their lives. The house is operated under professional property management.

John Lyons purchased this house in 2015

Why John Lyons chose Tahoma

There's a saying, "The West Shore is the Best Shore". Tahoma is perfectly situated in the some of the least developed shoreline of Tahoe, yet is centrally located. In winter, the house is 5 minutes from Homewood, 20 minutes from Squaw/Alpine, and 45 minutes from Heavenly. You can ski the entire Tahoe area. In summer, there are vast expanses of state park and national forest land, accessible within a 5 minute walk from the front door. Hiking and mountain biking options are great, & there are trails not widely known or crowded. There are great beaches in the area - Chambers Landing, Meeks Bay & DL Bliss are close. Tahoe City is a 12 minute drive. Stateline and the casinos are about 40 minutes away.

The place to stay whenever we come back to Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 4-day stay so much and will definitely come back. 3 families including 4 little kids stayed for an extended weekend in this property and we just loved it! Great location, beautiful house, nice and cozy living room, the bedroom with bunk beds ( kids' favorite), the hot tub, kitchen with all kinds of utensils, clean bedrooms and bathrooms, responsive and considerate owners....they have all the reasons for you to love this property, and we all agreed that this is THE place to stay whenever we come back to Tahoe. By the way, we live in northern CA, just a few hours drive away, so we know for sure we will be coming back! Thank you, John and Diana for making this a beautiful memory for all of us!

  • 5 of 5

The experience was wonderful! Owners and property managers were very responsive, helpful and easy to work with. The home was beautiful - a great layout for families! We cooked and ate at the house, walked to the beach, enjoyed state parks and hikes that were close by, and very much enjoyed our stay!

Great vacation property

  • 5 of 5

We visited and stayed at this property during thanksgiving as a group of 6 adults and 2 kids and had a great time! The house is warm, cozy, clean and the decor lends a somewhat rustic feel to it. The living room and kitchen has an open floor plan so everyone can hang out in the same area without crowding it. The backyard is of decent size, although we couldn't explore much due to the snow and it also houses a nice hot tub big enough to seat 4 adults easily. It is not too far from the lake, although I wouldn't say it is walking distance (atleast we didn't see any trail leading up to the lake). PDQ market is a very short drive (or even a walk) away in case you need any last minute grocery/quick bite.

If you reserve, John will call you personally and explain the checkin procedure, answer any questions you may have. The staff at the property management is also super friendly and available by phone in case you need any help during the stay.

Would definitely like to visit again.

Amazing house

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was delightful. The house was very spacious for two families. The kids loved the room with the bunk beds. This room lacked window screens unlike other bedrooms. Furnishings were well appointed and exceptionally clean. Beds were very comfortable. This was our first visit to Tahoe in the summer and we had a very enjoyable stay.
