Lakeview - Hot Tub - Dog Friendly

The Buck Haus is a dog friendly North Lake Tahoe vacation rental with a peak Lakeview, great view of the mountains, hot tub and a great central location. Less than 2 miles from Tahoe City on Lake Tahoe's beautiful North Shore, this vacation home offers a spacious multi-level layout allowing for gatherings of large groups or multiple families. The Buck Haus offers easy access to the Tahoe City bike path as well as a short drive to both downhill and cross country skiing at world renown Lake Tahoe ski resorts such as Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows.

As you enter this home you'll get an immediate view of the mountains and lake. The split-level, open plan design means that from the kitchen, dining room, living areas and large deck you can see beautiful mountain and a peak of the lake. The kitchen is large and well equipped with lots of preparation room and is open to the dining and living areas, so you can keep an eye on the children playing or chat with the people in the dining room. After dinner you can enjoy an open fire in the large stone fireplace in the living room - perfect for those cold evenings.

Down the stairs are 2 bedrooms, each with a king bed with new linens and down comforters. These bedrooms share a bathroom. Down the next level there is another bathroom, laundry facilities and 2 more bedrooms one with a double and a twin bed and the other with a queen & a twin bed also with new comforters and linens. Each of these lower bedrooms open out on to another large deck with a hot tub. The Buck Haus sleeps 10 people comfortably.

The living areas has beautiful high cathedral ceilings and a wall of windows looking out on the trees, mountains and lake, and filling the home with lots of natural light. For relaxing at home the house is equipped with TV/VCR with cable & stereo with CD player. Off the living area is a large sunny deck, patio furniture,BBQ and hot tub making this outdoor area great for summertime entertaining.

The location is great for summer or winter vacations. In summer you can also go rafting down the Truckee River, water ski or swim in the lake, rent a jetski or enjoy the many hiking and biking trails around the lake. Within a 10-mile radius there is a multitude of scenic and challenging golf courses or if you prefer you can relax at one of the many lakefront restaurants. In winter you are a surrounded by some of the best skiing around, with World-renowned resorts like Squaw Valley, a 15-minute drive from the house. There are also beautiful cross country and snowshoe trails with views of the lake and snow mobile tours for those who want some variety. And at night there are so many great restaurants and bars you'll have difficulty deciding where to go next.

This is a dog friendly home and there is a great dog beach just around the corner.

Cozy cabin feel with plenty of room to entertain and a beautiful scenic view of the Tahoe forest

  • 4 of 5

The Cabin had a rustic feel with a modern touch. As soon as you enter the door you look out the large windows at the Tahoe pines and see a sliver of the lake. The kitchen is remodeled (except the fridge) and the couches in the living room are new, spacious, and cozy. The hot tub fits 8 people comfortably. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars was the floors aren't insulated/soundproof and you can hear everything going on upstairs. Ok for a group of adults but if you have kids going to bed early or early risers in the house, you can hear every pitter patter upstairs. Other than that, this house was great and I would recommend it for a group of friends getting together for the weekend or a family who is all on the same sleep schedule

Wonderful property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Amenities, supplies, beds, bedding, towels and dog bin were all excellently provided for. The place was extremely well kept, clean and comfortable. The location is superb. I would definitely stay here again.

I would never rent this house again. Upon arrival the house cleaners were still cleaning. Paper supplies such as toilet paper, paper napkins, bath soap non existent, towels were minimal and only two wash cloths. Several of the light fixtures did not work or had light bulbs burned out. During the day the living room was extremely hot. No ventilation. The ceiling fan was of little use to cool the room down. One of the outdoor black rod iron chairs was broken and someone almost fell over backwards. Small flatscreen TV in the living room. Old DVD player - could not read our DVD's. Two bedrooms on the bottom level were small & cramped. The owners added a twin bed to each room which blocked access to the closets. The hottub, located next to the downstair bedrooms was on 24/7. It made a high pitched humming noise, then would gurgle about every 45 minutes. so much for peace and quiet. One of my guests was a structural engineer. He looked at the upper deck and said it was unstable and could easily collapse. Get rid of the dead animal head in the living room. As environmentalist it was very depressing. I have vacation rental property, so I am aware of how a vacation house should be stocked and ready for guests. The rental managers did send Dirk over to fix the lights and bring supplies.

Great Multi Family Home

  • 5 of 5

Two families with adult children shared this home for a week and enjoyed it very much. Lots of room to have 'together' time but great spaces for privacy too.

Great location for walking, heading up to the ski hills or visiting Tahoe City.

We all had a wonderful holiday at the Buck Haus!

New Years Celebration

  • 4 of 5

We spent New Years here and it was amazing. Great space for friends to enjoy the holiday. It was a short taxi ride into town or the casino. We really enjoyed everything about the stay. The staff at Tahoe Moon Properties was great as well, very helpful.
