HOME WITH SPACIOUS BACK DECK, GRILL, HOT TUB AND HOME THEATER ROOM: LONE PINE LODGE

Montgomery Estates House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2336 sq. ft., 4 Bedrooms, Sleeps 12, 2 Bathrooms

Maybe it’s the beautiful stone fireplace, the exposed wood beam ceiling, or the plush sofa in the home theater room, but this place feels every bit as cozy as home. Of course, not every home has a gourmet kitchen, deluxe bathrooms with multiple showerheads, and a massive deck with a 6 person Sundance Hot tub, but you get the picture. It’s warm. It’s welcoming. It’s the kind of place you’ll want to come home to after a long day of skiing, hiking, or boating and feel every bit as comfy as you would in your own place.

NO TOO HAPPY :(

  • 4 of 5
The house was very nice and very clean. All the beds had clean, warm, and comfortable covers. The pillows were new. The heater throughout the entire house was excellent. The controls were simple and clear. The gas fireplace was a big plus. The master bedroom shower was great -- it had 4 additional jets. The hot tub was very well maintained.
The refrigerator, stove, and all the appliances in the kitchen were very clean. The towels were nice and clean. Once we had a guy come over and help us figure out the complicated controls, the TV was very nice with a great surround-sound system.
The kitchen had lot of utensils. We had a very good internet connection.

That’s the positive side. There were quite a few things, though, that could and should be improved. I have 2 rental homes in Oahu, and have rented a lot of other homes over the years, and I felt this house wasn’t equipped with the basic needs for renters. There were a lot of things that were missing in this house and that were very annoying for us:

As you pull up to the house, the first thing you see is a raggedy sign on the garage door that says “Owner Garage – No Guest Access.” This is Tahoe in the winter – it would sure be nice to put our car in the garage (our guests in Hawaii have access to the garage). As you enter the house in the living room, there is no space or closet to hang jackets. (There is a coat closet, but it’s padlocked.) We had to use kitchen counter chairs for hanging our winter coats. It was funky and messy, but there was no alternative.

There were only 2 kitchen towels and no cleaning rags or cleaning products. There was only 1 little sample-sized bottle of dish washing liquid soap, and 2 little packets of dishwasher detergent, which means we could only run the dishwasher twice before we had to go out and buy some more detergent. There was only 1 little sample-sized pack of laundry detergent that was already opened and partly used. There was only 1 almost empty bottle of Simple Green that we had to add water to in order to clean the areas. There were no rubber gloves or any other cleaning supplies, and only 1 half-empty roll of paper towels. That was it.

The bottom tray in the dish washer didn’t work properly. There weren’t any garbage bags. There was only 1 garbage bag in the tall garbage bin in the house. The stove had no vent above it. The smoke alarm was near the stove so when

GIRLS WEEKEND GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We recently just stayed at this home to celebrate my sisters upcoming nuptuals, we had family and friends and enjoyed a low-key weekend of outdoor fun and loved staying in this home. It was exactly as pictured and contained all the amentities you need. The home was clean and organized. I would definately recommend this home. The only negative feedback I have is that the hot-tub water was scalding hot and we were not able to relax and take advantage of it. But truly this home is great and as described!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay! Thanks for the feedback on the hot tub and we will look into that as there must be a way to adjust the temperature somehow. Thanks so much and we would love to host you again soon!

WINTE RSTAY

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed at your beautiful home during President's week. My 12 and 8 year old immediately loved the house! It is such a pretty home with modern amenities. The kitchen is fully stocked, and their are plenty of beds for multiple families. The bunk room is a favorite with my 8 year old. If you have toddlers, the lack of a banister may be an issue. Check in was easy and the location was perfect for skiing and restaurants. Such an enjoyable stay! Thank you!

I LOVE SOUTH LAKE TAHOE!

  • 5 of 5
I've stayed in a lot of cabins in the Tahoe area, but this cabin by far is my favorite. The location is perfect, you have access to ski resorts, dowtown, and Lake Tahoe in minutes. All of the appliances are up to date and the cabin itself feels like a home away from home. I am definitely coming back!

GREAT HOUSE, AMAZING HOT TUB!

  • 5 of 5
This house was amazing. The house was in great condition. We bbq-ed steaks and chilled in the largest hot tub with jets. Which one day got over heated and turned off, we called the maintenance number and within 15 minutes, there was a man there to fix it. Great service and couldn't ask for anything more.

The casinos where 9 min drive.....but the easiest drive in the world...basically go straight and turn right. Would go back in a heart beat. There was also horses and atv's close!

WOULD NOT RENT AGAIN UNLESS OWNER MAKES SOME NEEDED UPGRADES

  • 2 of 5
We rented this house for 6 ladies and it was for sure big enough to accommodate us all. That being said there was quite a bit of misleading going on with the photo's that are on this site. The angle of the camera makes the house seem much larger than it actually is and that was a let down and it didn't stop there. The three couches are VERY old VERY broken and very filthy, they slope forward, dump you out and make your back hurt! We all joked that they must have found them on the street with a free sign on them!

The house doesn't have an air conditioner and gets very warm and unbearable, this wouldn't be a problem if they provided a few floor fans as an option for the hot summer days/nights, and fans don't cost a lot and bring a ton of comfort. The cookware is horrible and everything you cook sticks this makes for difficult cooking and cleaning up, I suggest some non-stick cookware! The patio furniture on the back deck was not in the best of shape either, while having breakfast one morning I fell right though my chair because they are so worn, this will continue to happen because the remaining 3 chairs are also in the process of ripping.

The hot tub is awesome and big but to get to the control panel you must make a big step down onto cement blocks (that are not stable) this is not safe at all! And the deck rail is so high off the deck that a child or small adult could slip right though, also not good!

I have an issue that we paid a cleaning deposit but when we got there the house was not clean at all, dusty, dirty floors and towels and such and stains all over the furniture. These things did not ruin our trip but I see previous reviewers have made the same complaints and yet the owners have not made any changes to assist in the comfort of their guest. If the owners would make some simple changes this could be a 5 star property but again I can't get over the disgust of the couches they were really horrible.

This property also has bear issues and we had 2 of them enter our house while we were at the store. They ripped off the front screen and ate almost all of our food and left it all around the house, they came back again the next morning and tried to get in again but they failed this time, thank God.

I am sorry for just focusing on the negitive but isn't that what we all want to know any way?
