House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12)
Successful vacation rental and well appointed, this lovely 4-bedroom, 3-bath home offers tranquility and privacy and convenience within Tahoe Keys. This home has full-lot frontage on Lake Tallac (aka the 'sailing lagoon'), the 1/2-mile-long, forested lake within the Keys. Views, outdoor spaces and at-home recreation including private dock with watercraft. After enjoying the day at Lake Tahoe, come home to your own semi-private Lake Tallac with wildlife, forest, mountain, sky and star views - Tahoe Keys without the crowds!
This home has been owner-occupied, and the quality of the furnishings and appointments reflects this. Living room and dining room are furnished in leather and maple and have great natural light and lake, forest and mountain views. A digital stereo home theater with large screen Sony LCD HDTV, DVD library, CD player and Wii game system provide upstairs entertainment. Downstairs is a game room with regulation size, newly refelted Olhausen pool table, vintage Thomas electric organ and second LCD HDTV. Outside is the deck with hot tub, back yard, and private dock with 2 kayaks, a rowboat and a canoe. We installed a new, larger dock in 2015 as shown in one of the photos (the old, small dock still appears in a few of the photos).
This home offers great privacy, relaxation and at-home recreation, and the feeling of 'getting away from it all' while being centrally located in the Keys. Of course you also get all of the amenities that make Tahoe Keys so popular - the beautiful, level neighborhood for easy walking and bicycling, spectacular mountain views, two community pools, seven tennis courts (two in the large open park directly across the street), the semi-private beach on Lake Tahoe, easy access to Heavenly Valley, the Stateline casinos, South Lake Tahoe, Highway 50 and the Emerald Bay Road. If you own a boat for Lake Tahoe, the Tahoe Keys Marina and its convenient launch facilities are only a few minutes down the street. The Keys waterways with Lake Tahoe access are directly across the street.
This home is well-organized for groups of up to three families or for large or extended families. There is a second master bedroom downstairs. Adults can socialize in the upstairs living room with large balcony while kids play in the downstairs game room or in the back yard, or on Lake Tallac. Dine outside on balcony or indoors. Pets are welcome with approval, and the back yard is fenced to keep them safe from the wildlife, and vice versa. There is a 10 percent discount for repeat renters and referrals.
Here you come home to privacy and tranquility on your own, semi-private forested lake in a home that provides great entertainment, relaxation and at-home recreation, in a central location in the busy Keys - the best of both worlds in Tahoe Keys.

About Lauren Hammitt
In our vacation home we set out to find a beautiful, private and relaxing setting close to the best of the South Shore's outdoor recreation, fine dining and nightlife activities, that also offers great at-home recreation. We found it here. Come home to your own semi-private, forested lake while being centrally located in Tahoe Keys -- without the crowds!
Lauren Hammitt purchased this House in 2009
Why Lauren Hammitt chose South Lake Tahoe
Tahoe Keys is famous for its central location near all of the South Lake Tahoe activities, and for all of its amenities - the marina, tennis courts, community indoor and outdoor pools, and all of the rest that makes Tahoe Keys a premier vacation choice. Fronting Lake Tallac makes this home particularly wonderful for the peace and tranquility it offers -- the enjoyment and recreational opportunities of a semi-private lake, while being centrally located within Tahoe Keys. Here, you come home to a quiet lake with forest and wildlife views, not the docked boats and back yards along the waterways on the other side of the street.

This home is organized for multi-family (2 or 3 families), extended families or groups of up to three couples. Pets on approval, fenced backyard, refundable cleaning/security deposit, 10 percent discount for repeat renters.

Lovely and comfortable home
Very nice house that fit our whole group comfortably. Loved the pool table and hot tub. Neighborhood is nice and quiet
Loved this house!!!
Nice views, location and fully equipped!! I highly recommend this house! friends and I didnt want to leave :(
Nice Tahoe location
The house is in the very popular Tahoe Keys location and the owners were very flexible in working with us to meet our vacation needs. The rental provides nice amenities such as the pool table (which received a lot of use), boating and great master bedroom. The dwelling could benefit from some overall updating. Owners refund of our cleaning deposit was smoothly completed.
We appreciate feedback from our guests. These guests told us they had a great time and enjoyed their stay. They left our home in immaculate condition. Our home is in an excellent location, is comfortable with a mountain theme, has many amenities and is a good value. We make updates annually and the home is very clean and in good repair. We manage the home ourselves and are responsive to our guests. The home looks exactly as pictured on the website so we are confused as to why it did not meet this guests expectations for five stars.

Awesome rental for summer or winter.
Access to the lagoon was easy. Although no powered boats are permitted, kayaking and canoeing are both easy enough for beginners. Fishing in the summer for bluegill was fantastic. A short drive will get you to the local "beach" and pool for guests of Tahoe Keys. Bike rentals are walking distance, but there were three bikes in the garage when we arrived. Highly recommend this location and specific rental property.
Lovely home and located in a great area!
Enough space for a family of 12! The owners respond in a great timely matter. Everything in the house works and the view is beautiful!
Had an amazing time at a beautiful house
We arrived on the weekend to a beautiful snowy paradise within a few feet of a frozen river. The place was beautiful and spacious, the game room was a superhit with both adults and kids, both the owners were gracious and helpful, they were just really nice. Tahoe was beautiful, the house was really beautiful, it was a perfect little weekend. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
In short totally recommended whether you are a large family or a few small families who want to visit Tahoe together.
Thank you for the wonderful review! Tom and I are very pleased you had a great visit to Lake Tahoe. We look forward to hearing from you again, and please remember we offer a 10 percent discount to returning parties. - Lauren
