About John Greco

We purchased this home as a getaway for the family. It is decorated and designed to enjoy the Tahoe lifestyle.

Why John Greco chose South Lake Tahoe

We fell in love with Lake Tahoe after spending time there with friends. Now we have our own piece of it!

What makes this house unique

Our home is in a quiet neighborhood surrounded by pines, walking and hiking trails. The tram at Heavenly is only 15 minutes away. The Lake Tahoe Golf Course is only a couple of minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved every moment of our stay at this beautiful house and with all the snow falling it was a dream for us and the kids. We had to rent the home for an extra day because of the weather and the owner was quick to respond and made things very simplified for us. The home was well equipped with all the amenities. Timely cleanup of the drive way during snow days was very helpful.

Perfect Thanksgiving Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this property. Our family of 5 had more than ample space. Everything went smoothly from the time of booking to the time that we left. We have rented several places via VBRO and I think this is by far the most beautifully decorated -- with very nice touches that made the place very cozy. The fireplace in the main living room was very nice! My son especially loved that there are so many stuffed bears all around the house. Kitchen had everything we needed to make our Thanksgiving dinner.

We look forward to staying here again in the future! Thank you, John!

Tahoe delight

  • 5 of 5

We most certainly enjoyed our stay at the Black Bear Lodge, altho we did not actually see any bears! The photos accurately depict this lovely home, which was clean and well stocked. The sound of the breeze through the pines was soothing, as was a daily morning soak in the hot tub. It was great to be away from the bustle of town, yet close enough to access shops, casinos, restaurants, and other amenities.

South Tahoe Ski Chalet

This home was outstanding! We found the home to be maticulously maintained and very comfortable. It is well represented in the photographs and a great location for a large family to relax following long days of skiing. The owner was very helpful and always responsive.

We rented this cabin for my 30th birthday. It was a great location for us since it's close to the highway taking you to Kirkwood but also not too far from the casinos. There is also a market nearby which is very convenient. There wasn't much snow so we ended up staying in the cabin for most of the trip. The layout is perfect for large groups since the dining, kitchen and living room is all one big space and has sliding doors opening to the deck. The cabin is decorated beautifully and with quality in mind. It's also very well maintained. I like that there is room to park two cars in the garage. I honestly couldn't find anything to complain about. The owner, John, was responsive and helpful. Paying to stay in your cabin was a pleasure.
