About Judy Lesage
Just very nice people! This is our second home and we thoroughly enjoy spending our free time in Tahoe. We enjoy everything about this home and try to keep it cozy and comfortable so others can enjoy as much as we do. Unlike other rentals that are strictly rentals, our house feels like you've just entered your very own home. It has that feel good feeling the minute you walk in the door. We welcome your feedback and hope you enjoy your stay immensely.

I decided to choose this place because of how nice it looked. However I was very disappointed when I got there. Even though the house looked like the pictures it was very dirty on the inside. I arrived at 1am and I didn’t go to sleep until 3am because I was cleaning the house that I was dirty and very dusty. Which was really bad for my niece that has allergeis. I have picture of how the house looked when I arrived. I sent it to the owner and she sent someone the next day but they didn’t do anything. After that I talked to the owner again and she said she was going to refund the clean fee but to refund me. After reaching out o her again she said that she tried to send the money through Zelle but couldn’t manage to do it even thought I gave her all the information she need it. I have prove of all the conversations we have had. However to this day I still haven’t received any refund. I do not recommend this place because of how dirty it was and because of how unreliable the owner is.
Great property in SLT
The whole rental and check-in process was very easy. This house is large enough to accomodate multiple families and the location is great. We were able to easily access South Lake Tahoe, Meyers, and there were hiking trails out the back door. Lots of fun, we love Tahoe.
Ask if the home is clean!
Our party expected to go in to start our vacation to a clean home, as Anyone would, it's what you expect. It was dusty, floor unswept, garbage in kitchen, rotting food in pantry, unclean sheets, that we proceeded to wash. Dirty and pine needles all over outside deck. Couldn't have outdoor eating unless we cleaned it ourself. Lastly an infestation of ants in bedrooms mostly and in living room and kitchen too. We called owner who said he'd waive cleaning fee. Cleaning lady came during our stay but we called owner back because she did not seem to have done much. The owner and I agreed, leave early for full refund. That was like pulling teeth as after they ridiculously accused us of trying to scam him! His wife said no one complained before. The owner admitted no one was in house for two months prior to our stay. Bottom line it was not ready for guests. Other then that the house is big, roomy and if clean I believe would have been comfortable. We are NOT complainers, our family has stayed in VRBO homes 20+ years w/o a problem. We paid good money to have a good vacation and just did not feel it's too much to ask for it to be clean. These owners also did not appear to be able to see our prospective. Just the fact that we complained, downplaying our complaints. We have stayed in Tahoe many times and I'm sure we again will find other nice places.
The Renter asked to check in early, the cleaning people come twice , after guests leave and before they arrive.
She called that evening to complain .... we said very sorry, we will have the professional cleaning people in the next AM to clean again and would not charge a cleaning fee. Cleaning crew came back , cleaned, took pictures of every room , she called to complain of pine needles on the deck.
I asked, "What will make you happy....ok, we will refund your money if she left the next day. We Lost the use of the house 4th of July weekend.
This guest had a few minor legitimate complaints but, definitely exaggerated the condition of the house , we received pictures from the cleaning crew and have made every effort to ensure that in the future, any legitimate issues will be taken care of . Further, we will not refund the entire stay for cleaning issues again.
Good location, many amenities, easy access.
Thanks Robert, hope you had a good time and enjoyed your stay Please come back sometime.
Best place to stay in South Lake Tahoe!
My extended family has vacationed regularly in the Lake Tahoe area for the past twenty-five years. Every member of the family agreed that our latest visit was clearly the best. The Ski Ranch was impeccably clean, complete with enjoyable amenities for every age group in our party, and the overall layout of the property was well designed for us. Our kids had a blast in the game room and the adults’ expectations were blown away for our entire stay. Thanks David and Judy for sharing your wonderful home!!!
