We have stayed in this lovely house for three separate summers and have loved each visit. The home is perfect for our extended family (including our dog) and is very comfortably equipped. The grandkids love the kayaks and fishing from the dock, and the adults love the hot tub and relaxing on the deck and watching all the wildlife. We frequently see ospreys and beavers, and once even saw a bear across the lagoon. Birdwatching is actually pretty good from the nice comfort of the deck chairs. The pool table is fun for everyone too.
Tom and Lauren offer an unusual but flexible cleaning deposit option. We usually spend a couple hours on our last morning cleaning and straightening up and usually get most or all of the deposit back. If we don't have the time or have something more pressing to do, then we leave it for others to do the cleaning and forfeit the deposit. We find this option very generous and it has worked very well for us. We have usually received our entire deposit back.
The Lake Tahoe area is a wonderful place to visit during all four seasons. We like the summers best and are glad we have discovered this lovely place to rent. Our family looks forward to returning each year.
