Cabin is loaded with mostly everything you need and is pretty roomy! Clean, cozy, and very welcoming. Also, Mr. Dennis was really prompt on replying to e-mails on questions we had.

Also to enough supplies that the guest doesn't have go to the store for napkins, paper towels, or toothpicks dumb stuff you will have in your home. It has a well stocked kitchen to make real food.

Great cabin for a family trip to the snow.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for our family get away to Tahoe. The kids enjoyed playing in the snow in the front yard during the day and a game of foos ball in the evening. The hot tub on the back deck was perfect after a long day in the snow.

Overall great house and great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific stay this past weekend with only a few complaints. The house is in a great location in South Lake (close to Heavenly for ski/ride) and has all the standard amenities (kitchen items, spices/sauces for food, coffee maker, soap in bathrooms, towels, blankets, etc). We really enjoyed using the fireplace and playing Foosball, both of which were unexpected perks. Also, the 3 bathrooms were another plus.

A few minor issues: #1 the hot tub smelled of mildew - although it was functioning fine, we did not get to really use it; #2 one of the showers had very low water pressure and a second one had poor temperature controls (either very hot or very cold); #3 there was no outdoor grill (this ended up not mattering to us at all); #4 we had hoped to find an ax to chop wood (outside of course!) but could not find it - also not a big deal.

Overall great stay and we would come back again.

Our 5th Stay

  • 4 of 5

We love this cabin! The owner put in new carpet, new beds, a new stove, and some fresh paint. Yes, the linoleum may be a next step in the future, but this cabin has everything to make the stay comfortable- a fully loaded kitchen, entertainment for kids big and small, a dog run, plenty of room to play outside, soft towels in the bathroom, paper products. . . This list just goes on. If you’re looking for luxurious- look elsewhere- this is a spacious, family friendly cabin with a rustic, CABIN feel. It is a great location. The owner has always been responsive and helpful.

In great need of repair and update

  • 1 of 5

This home needs much updating. The carpet and linoleum is all old. It also has uneven thresholds in several rooms creating safety issues. It advertised a hot tub which was not clean enough to use. It advertised a gas grill but there was only an old charcoal grill. The tub/shower in one bathroom was nearly impossible to get working. The television with satellite was difficult to operate and, unfortunately, the owner did not provide any written instructions which could have alleviated our frustrations. The stove had only 3 out of 4 working burners. We called and spoke to the owner once to ask about operating the TV and satellite but he was unfamiliar and couldn't help us. He suggested texting him if we had other concerns. But when we later texted him about the difficult shower, he never answered us. We were disappointed in this home and would not recommend it to anyone else.

The only good thing we experienced here were the property managers, Alicia and John. They were very helpful and apologetic for the problems we had.
