About Lisa and John McDonald

Came to Lake Tahoe for a week's vacation in 1964 and never left. Bought and moved to this property in 1978. 1996-1997 remodeled it into our ideal vacation home and immediately received very positive responses from clients who now come from all over the world to enjoy the beauty of Tahoe and the peace, tranquility, and convenience of the Lake Tahoe Woodside

Lisa and John McDonald purchased this house in 1978

Why Lisa and John McDonald chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

This property is centrally located to all possible activities that exist at Lake Tahoe yet is privately situated within and surrounded by the Old Brockway Gold Course (built in 1926) which provides for a quiet retreat in a private neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

The land around the property is almost level for convenient access, has over a dozen 100 foot tall pine trees, is actually one of the oldest neighborhoods in Tahoe originally established by George Comstock of Virginia City's famed mother load era.

Very clean, well kept and comfortable place.

  • 5 of 5

Ideal place for a small family within walking distance of the beach and short drive from a ski resort. Hosts are very hospitable and were attentive to my needs. They even offered to make a bed for us since we arrived late in the evening. The lights and heat were on. Good set of kitchenware - and I've seen places with just one old rusty pan! All kitchen appliances are clean and new. Good supply of paper towels, soap etc. I stayed there twice and certainly will plan to stay again when I am in the area.

Practically Perfect in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful cabin lacks for nothing. Absolutely everything you could possibly need or want has been provided. It is cozy, comfortable and the kitchen is fully equipped. It even has a waffle iron. The location is quiet and close to wonderful hiking, kayaking and some good restaurants. We go to Tahoe every year and have always stayed in lovely places but this was the best. The owners are friendly, thorough and knowlegable about the area. We can't wait to return to Tahoe Woodside.

If we could give John and Lisa 10 stars, we would!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Tahoe Woodside was the perfect way to enjoy Labor Day weekend! John and Lisa were two of the kindest, most accommodating, and helpful individuals we could have asked for in welcoming us to North Tahoe, and gave us plenty of ideas for things to do in the area. Their cabin, Tahoe Woodside, was homey and cozy, with plenty of space for my boyfriend and I to enjoy a long weekend. We'll definitely be back!

Great cabin in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was a great find. It's obvious that the owners have put a lot of thought into making their guests' stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible, providing almost everything that you could need. The location is also excellent - beach, grocery store, restaurants and bars all within a few minutes walk, and yet it's still very peaceful. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again. Thanks John and Lisa!

Felt like home

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable little cottage with wonderful sky lights which make it bright and airy. The bedroom and bathroom upstairs are spacious and immaculate. We really loved the bed! There were many little touches, too, that we appreciated, such as the huge thick towels. The living room is cozy and would be especially nice in the winter, but in the summer we spent as much time as possible on the porch, the terrace or the swing in the backyard looking onto the golf course. The location is very convenient to either walk or drive to the lake, shopping and restaurants. Can't wait to go back!

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Totally admit that I was a little nervous about a lake side vacation, but the gf was adamant I would like it and she was right! There is so much to do around Lake Tahoe in the summer that one week does not do the area justice at all. Our two story home from home at Tahoe Vista (adjacent to Kings Beach) was the ideal place for our annual vacation. This vacation rental has everything you could need and more. The usual things like a fully equipment kitchen, internet, huge satellite TV but also extra's that added to the feel of the place was a huge comfy leather sofa, your own small garden with BBQ, great sky lights in the bedroom, stair case and even above the shower (natural light shower, go figure) all wrapped up in a wood cabin house.The owners, very friendly couple, live in the adjacent house and are available at the end of a phone, plus they have great tips for hikes, things to do, best places to eat etc. (they recommend Soule Domain, great restaurant). This is one of three rental properties they offer in the area.Another great plus, is that you are in walking distance of Safeways, the beach, the restaurants etc., if you do not fancy driving anywhere. While you are walking distance of these amenities, you are well away from the hustle and bustle of tourists flocking around the center of Kings Beach. What is more, the pricing of this rental are very reasonable for the area, especially if staying for a good period of time. Nothing that detracts from a 5 star rating here at all! Will admit we have a serious power shower at home and I often miss this when staying away from home in hotels, bed and breakfasts. The shower in the rental was totally fine just not a power shower....the skylight shower though had me wondering how much it was add to the value of my home. I was pleased just to have a washer and dryer for us to use, but should point out that this is located in the bedroom - while this may sound strange we did not find this a problem at all, just means that you avoid trying to wash clothes early in morning or late at night. It was great to bring home clean clothes for once as opposed to cases full of laundry. As you can see we were struggling to find anything much negative to say to balance our positive view of this rental and vacation. Like any good vacation, this one has us wondering when we will get the chance to go back and visit the places we missed on this last trip. If we do go back, hopefully we will be able to rent the same place again!
