|Minimum Stay||2 - 5 nights|
You appreciate the finer things in life: a bottle of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, a basket of Vosges Chocolates, an Eames lounge chair. Now, you can add the Contemporary Tahoe Cabin to this list, because it fits with your unique stylish vision. Set against the backdrop of a national forest, with a peaceful mountain stream just a short walk from the back deck, this home is the perfect getaway for the discerning modernist who needs to unplug from society for awhile.

Why stay with InvitedHome?
We just stayed in this house with 3 other families, 11 people and it was not crowded at all. It was perfect for each family to take its own bedroom and it was great for kids (there were baby gates, booster chairs, and even toys). The backyard is amazing. It has a great hill for sledding, tons of land to run around and build snowmen. The house is very clean and spacious. It is managed by a management company so it is pretty convenient if you have any problems. We didn't have a shovel to shovel our driveway, so they sent someone out to do it for us. The person came a day late, but it was still very nice. The only negative points were that noise travels very easily in the house and some of the sliding doors did not lock very well. Overall we would book this house again!
This house is a gem - we only had it booked for two nights, but I wish we had more time. Other than going food shopping for an hour, we didn't leave the house at all. It's very comfortable. The beds were nice, the bathrooms were clean and nicely appointed, the kitchen layout was spacious (electric kettle, rice cooker, salt and pepper), the deck was marvelous, the weather perfect, and the bears stayed at bay. The lights downstairs didn't work, but within an hour after I called Liz (terrific customer service!), Dave came by and reset the breaker. There were no dishcloths in the kitchen and no aluminum/cling wrap, but we came prepared, thanks to all the other reviewers. I failed to mention to Liz that the garbage disposal sounded horrid - we didn't use it at all, but accidentally turned it on while figuring out the lights. The master bedroom is on one level with all the other bedrooms downstairs so our teens got their privacy as did we. The house was easy to find, and I would definitely recommend it. I hope to come back to it someday soon!
The location was great.
The property was clean and well maintained.
We were given great customer service.
I would recommend this property to friends and family.
There was a variety of activities, attractions, and restaurants near by. We especially liked that there was a fitness gym and grocery stores near by.
Overall everything was great. One suggestion I would like to make is that I felt that the house should have provided some dish towels and cleaning supplies. We were there for five nights. We cooked and BBQed a lot and there was only 2 or 3 little wash cloths for the kitchen.
Another thing, the lights downstairs tripped off almost every night.
One more thing, my husband and I were really disappointed that there was no TV in the master bedroom.
I would rent this house again. Thank you so much
The Contemporary Tahoe Cabin was perfect for what we needed it for. There was plenty of beds, bedding, hot water for showering, comfortable furniture, and a lot of space! The cabin is definitely furnished and that is it. There are no extras- kitchen is limited on supplies, so if you plan on cooking something bring seasonings, special pans, foil/ziplocks, etc. You can hear people walking around upstairs quite clearly from downstairs. There were coyotes out both nights during our stay we could hear them fighting, in fact we watched one go into the neighboring cabin's yard, you are definitely out in the wilderness so keep that in mind. It was very easy to access the house, it was clean, and we enjoyed the new-home feeling as it was recently built! Would rent it again if we had a another trip up!
We have spent a wonderful week in this mountain home and will not hesitate to book it if we ever decide to stay in South Lake Tahoe again. Quiet location with a view towards a forest ( kids had fun in the snow; snow, a hill and several saucers - that is all it takes), really close to a park with trails, within 3 miles of Heavenly with its gondola, Hansen resort and supermarkets. Kitchen is equipped enough to be able to prepare home food in whatever style you want including an outside grill. But when they say there is no food - they mean literally no food ( not even a salt shaker). So if you are into cooking you have to bring everything with you. Everything. Very uncluttered but has everything you might need. We had an issue with WiFi but it was resolved within a day. The driveway and the road got cleared pretty quickly after the snowstorm.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this cabin. I hesitate to call it a cabin since our perspective viewed it as a lovely home. The listing description was right on and location was only a ten minute drive to the center of any attraction you would want to see in South Lake Tahoe.
The photos depict the home exactly as it was in real life and we couldn't have been more thrilled to stay in this home. The home was very clean overall and very well maintained.
We did have an issue upon our arrival since we were given the wrong code to enter the home. However, a quick phone had this resolved within five minutes. We also purchased a lot of groceries on Sunday in anticipation of grilling out and enjoying the home that evening. To our surprise, the gas canister to the grill was empty. Again, a quick phone call to the property management group resulted in a new gas canister being delivered within an hour. We were very impressed with this considering it was a Sunday! I can't stress enough about how great the service was from the property manager.
We would highly recommend this home to any of our friends or relatives. We can't wait to head back to South Lake Tahoe next year and we'll be crossing our fingers that this home is available.
I usually can find some opportunity for improvement, however, nothing really comes to mind with this home. It truly was a delight to stay here and we couldn't be happier with our overall experience.
