"We've had our first trip to Lake Tahoe this month of August. Traveling 7 persons, 5 adults and 2 kids (8 and 3 yo) we decided to rent a cabin so we could spend our vacation all together rather then be separated in some hotel rooms.
Our choise of this cabin was great! First, the pictures on the website do justice in reality: everything was as described. Second, the location of the cabin is fantastic! Beautiful forest, fresh air, gorgeous atmosphere to relax. Rooms and baths were clean, everything arranged for you to feel welcomed. We didn't use the sauna. Nice to have one though :)
There were extra clean linens, pillows, and towels available (we didn't use the extra ones), extra blankets. I liked the kitchen and everything in it, very handy! Having a bbq grill available on the patio it's just super! We bought charcoal from the local store and enjoyed our evenings by the fire. So relaxing!
The stereo system was nice. We didn't use the tv, just to have more family time. The fireplace was beautifully done; however, didn't use it either. We spent our evenings mostly on patio by the fire. There are even some family games, some incomplete, but fun! :)
The garage is open, no doors, but not a problem at all, is like a covered parking.
A couple of big stores are near by where you can buy groceries, souvenirs, everything you need for the stay. They even sell hot soups to go. We were buying hot soups for lunch, not bad at all and very convenient.
The cabin is really close to Heavenly Village, a place full of cafés, gift shops, gondola ride (breath taking), general store. Beaches are close, around 10 mins drive. We were at Zephyr Cove (Queen Tahoe cruise, we didn't take this time), Sand Harbor Beach (such a beautiful view!), and Emerald Bay. There are a couple more beaches we didn't have time for, definitely next time :)
Gary, the owner, was very responsive, by e-mail, text messages, and phone. He even allowed us to check in earlier then 3 pm; well, we've arrived around 2pm anyway since we've stopped on our way in Hawthorne at the Military Museum and spent there some time. Quite fascinating place! Anyway, Gary was always in touch, which we really appreciate.
It was a beautiful vacation in such a gorgeous corner of nature and our stay at this cozy cabin just made it more comfortable. We definitely will come back to this place again!"
