About Cindy Vinson

We've been enjoying Lake Tahoe since we were children and couldn't wait to have our own place looking out over what is surely the ultimate mountain lake! Bill loves to fly fish

(He'll share his 'secret' places with you if you ask!)and we both love enjoying the sunsets and panoramic views from our deck. Everything is here- nature,hiking, water sports, entertainment and the casinos and just plain relaxing in gorgeous surroundings!

Cindy Vinson purchased this house in 1991

Why Cindy Vinson chose Talmont

We love the mountains and Tahoe has it all - close by the Bay Area,great skiing in the winter, water sports and outdoor life in the summer and Reno and North Shore casinos just a short distance away when you feel the urge! What could be better!

What makes this house unique

We love the fact that our home is secluded with a 'deep forest' feel, yet with incredible views and still very close to town with fabulous restaurants, shops, theater, etc.,right there. Our private beach club is great in the spring, summer and fall- We can enjoy 300 yards of stunning beach, have a cookout on the Lake, enjoy basketball, volleyball, horseshoes, etc., in a peaceful atmosphere without any crowds.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us! The view of Lake Tahoe was spectacular and the home was beautiful, comfortable and well-stocked! Your guest book was most helpful for first time visitors to Tahoe. Thank you for an amazing three days - We will be back!

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The home far exceeded our expectations. When we arrived, the place was wonderfully warm, inviting, and extremely clean. And as mentioned by other reviews, while these pictures are beautiful, they really do not fully convey how incredible the view is. We love to cook and were impressed by how well-stocked the kitchen was. Most of all, there was just a comfort and warmth about the home that made you feel so welcomed. We hope to stay at Bill and Cindy's home again soon!

Do come back and visit again!

Pleasant Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay over the holidays. The home is large, clean, and comfortable. It was pretty cold in December and we did make use of the space heaters provided. The air is really dry in Lake Tahoe so I recommend bringing your own humidifier if you are driving and have space. This house has the best equipped kitchen of any rental property I have ever stayed in - chefs will enjoy.

Owner's Response: Hi Kate, We are delighted that you loved the house- particularly the gourmet kitchen we have created for all those who love to cook! During the Christmas week that you were in Tahoe, California experienced an unprecedented period of low humidity and very dry conditions for an extended period of time ( which set conditions for the disastrous fires in Southern California). Tahoe was not exempt from these rare conditions, which is why you felt that the air was dry. This is emphatically not the normal state of affairs in Northern California , where natural humidity is comfortable all year round, and humidity conditions have since returned to normal levels. The house is heated with a very powerful radiant heating system, with three separate thermostats which guests can set to their preferred comfort levels throughout the house. The system responds quickly to thermostat setting changes and is capable of temperatures even higher than 70 degrees if desired. This is the first time we have had a guest use the space heaters ( provided in case of unlikely HVAC malfunction), so I assume the unusual climactic conditions made the air feel cooler.

Perfect Location, great house !

  • 4 of 5

We just went up to share my Mom's 94th birthday for a few days in November. The views are fantastic from every room. The master was all you could hope for and more. All the rooms and kitchen were very nice and the bathrooms and laundry room were something we wanted in our home. They even had a hook up for a Hybrid / electric car in the garage. The main family room was dark and challenging to read at night or during cloudy days with rain, so we just went to other rooms. With that being the only improvement point, we would love to come again! We would highly recommend to anyone to stay in this large comfortable home with some of the best views you can find on the North shore.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Randy, for your kind words and excellent review! We thought you would want to know that in the spring we plan to replace the living room lighting with state of the art LED fixtures and also update all wall switches to decora rocker switches with dimmers. In addition, all electrical outlets will be equipped with USB charging capability. We’re delighted that you enjoyed your stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Judith! Congrats on your marriage and we are delighted that you loved the house and noticed our hotel-level deep cleaning regimen. We have the best housekeeping staff at the Lake and we supervise 3 deep cleans at the house per year, when we spend 8 hours with a staff of four, turning the place inside- out. After that, the carpet cleaners, window washers and our amazing handyman come in to do their things. Bill and I believe our guests deserve the best we can provide!

Perfect Birthday week!

  • 5 of 5

I have spent the last five years in Tahoe on my birthday week in October. And I have rented homes in the past in other areas. This is by far the most impressive rental ever! From having paper towels, toilet paper, Ziploc bags, batteries, and every kitchen utensil you can imagine! Cindy and Bill are very engaged. I had one question upon arrival and was able to reach them with one phone call and get an answer. The home was very clean and cozy. And truly the pictures don’t do the view justice- it is just amazing from every angle. There is a thorough welcome binder that outlines everything you might need to know about the home and answers every question. This couple really caters to the renter and makes your stay comfortable and even check out is simple and you’re not expected to do a ton of work which is also wonderful! I would definitely stay in this home again! Thank you Cindy and Bill for a wonderful birthday week!!! It may turning 48 just a little bit easier!!!

It is so nice to know that you and your family felt the care and thought we put into the house!
