Our home at Lake Tahoe has been a family get away for many years. The property is within 10 miles of great skiing at NorthStar, Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley and Incline Village. In the summertime the house is just 2 miles from the lake at North Shore with access to boating, swimming or just relaxing on the beach. Plenty of fine restaurants as well as shopping in Kings Beach, Tahoe City or Incline Village.
The house is in a quiet location and abuts to the Tahoe National Forest (about 1/2 mile) walk down the street.
Great Place! Very comfortable with the HD Satellite TV and the roaring stone fireplace! Very close to golf and down to the North Shore...Hope to come back soon
We had a wonderful weekend at Boring Manor! There were 7 of us, and we were very comfortable. My wife and I had one bedroom, my wife's parents had another bedroom, and our three adult children had another bedroom (two twins and a bunk bed). The dining room table was very large and well suited for meals and games, and the large couches in the living room afforded room for everyone. The couches were so comfortable - and perfect for naps. The house is close enough to the lake that we could drive there in 5-10 minutes, but also removed enough so that it was very peaceful. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed for food prep. We BBQ'd Tri Tip one night on the back deck, and there were even some charcoal briquettes there for our use - along with a BBQ starter (can to hold the briquettes while they heated up). We spent time at Kings Beach, where the water in Lake Tahoe was perfect for swimming - and the water gets deeper very gradually. We made a trip over the to the Biltmore Casino and had fun playing blackjack and video poker (pretty much broke even). The owner, Anne Carlson, was wonderful to deal with. She answered all of our questions, and she would quickly answer any question that we texted to her. After our stay, Anne mailed us a check returning our security deposit within about a week. We would definitely stay at Boring Manor again!!!
First off, Anne did a great job of communicating with us and being flexible when we needed to make a small change in our dates at the last minute.
As for the home, it was just that - a home. Everything we may have needed was there, and then some - this isn't a "rental" where the cupboards are bare.
The living room couches are super comfortable and the fireplace is amazing!
And all the comments about being close by, but just far enough out to be away from the crowds are right on. Safeway is close, but you can play in the back and have lots of room to have snowball fights or sled down from the road.
The neighbors were very nice too.
We would def stay here again.
My friends and I stayed at this lovely home when we came up a few weeks ago to run in Tough Mudder. We enjoyed the cleanliness, comfort and spaciousness not to mention the quiet and peace of the location.
However, it's now been more than 3 weeks since our stay and I just had to remind the owners for a 2nd time via email that we are waiting for the security deposit to be returned. This is nerve racking to say the least. I can recommend this house as a wonderful place to stay, fantastic for larger groups but the follow-through by the owners has room for improvement.
This house is awesome and the location is fantastic! It is set in just far enough to make you feel like you are in a remote area, surrounded by forest, yet you are close to pretty much everything once you are on the main road. I thought the on-line pictures were great, but they were nothing compared to actually being there. There was so much room and it housed everything you would hope for and it was very clean. You can't beat the view of the sky at night from the deck! The owners are very pleasant to deal with. I would definitely recommend this house to everyone and will definitely be returning! Great rates for a little piece of heaven....
We spent a very comfortable week here, would recommend to friends. Close to everything but not near the crowds, just remote enough. Quiet and near hiking trails including the Pacific Rim Trail. Thank you to this family for the foresight to have this Tahoe Cabin Retreat!
