Weddings/Receptions at the house: Wedding receptions or large gatherings are allowed at the Pioneer House or Black Bart House but not at the Ormsby House. There is a 3 night minimum stay and there is a $500 surcharge to allow a wedding or reception at the house. No more than 40 people are allowed at the home day or night and festivities have to stop by 10 pm (per South Lake Tahoe Vacation Home ordinance).
Pet Policy : There is a one time charge of $100 to bring your pets to the Tahoe house. Some people are allergic so you can ask when the last time a guest was at the house with a pet. This only happens about once a year since most of my guests are flying in from overseas or from the other side of the country.

I travel to South Lake Tahoe frequently with my wife to make repairs on the homes. We love hiking and scuba diving - even in Lake Tahoe.
The Ormsby House is a cozy cabin in the woods. You can go hiking from right out the back door and there is a large deck looking out to the mountains. At night you can hear the coyotes. This home is pet friendly.
Fast Wifi, lots of TVs, fireplace with wood.
