Great place! Great owners! Great time!

  • 5 of 5

I would leave a bad review to keep other travelers away so that I can have this place all to myself, but I guess that won't be fair for Taylor as he's an awesome owner. He was an absolute pleasure to speak to and he was very helpful in the process. Very easygoing and understandable.

I just came back from 4 days of much needed R&R with a handful of friends thanks to Taylor. The place is just amazing! They provide anything / everything you need for the kitchen, ample sleeping quarters for 6 guys, the game room was amazing, the couch was comfortable, the laundry / dryer are brand new, and to top it all off, they have a HOT TUB!! I will definitely come back. Thank you so much Taylor, for all that you've done in keeping a great place to travel to.

Fun For All

  • 5 of 5

What you see is what you get!!! This house was amazing and the owner was very helpful. Beds are amazing, house is spotless, wonderful hot tub and the gameroom is awesome. Just a few minutes away from the hustle and bustle at stateline allows you to enjoy the best of both worlds. I highly recommend this property and look forward to our next visit.

Wonderful place in South Lake Tahoe!

  • 4 of 5

The Great Entertainer was a lovely place for my family and my Sister to stay at!

The game room was awesome, and the kitchen was well stocked with necessities.

We visited in the middle of July (2018) and there was no air conditioning. Which is normal for the homes in this area, from what we heard. It did get a little warm, but we are from SoCal, so it didn't bother us. The firepit and jacuzzi were great, and it is a short drive to the casinos/town/gondolas. I would recommend this home!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this house. The game room was so much fun. My kids had a blast in there (and us parents, too!). The kitchen was well stocked, and had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable, and we loved the hot tub. It was also very convenient with close proximity to stores, restaurants, skiing and casinos. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks Taylor for an awesome experience!
