About Lori Engelhardt

We are a fun-loving couple with one major issue - the inability to agree on whether snowboarding or skiing is the cooler sport. When there's not snow on the ground we love everything else that Tahoe has to offer like hiking, kayaking, biking, visiting the beach and water-skiing.

Lori Engelhardt purchased this house in 2012

Why Lori Engelhardt chose Lake Tahoe South Shore

We fell in love with this cabin. It's comfy, cozy, serene and fits so many of our friends and family, plus we couldn't be closer to Heavenly or the lake. It's ideal for our lifestyle and we hope that you and your family and friends enjoy it as much as we do.

Really comfortable, and the layout is perfect for multi family to share, super spacious.

  • 5 of 5

The property is located 3 houses down from the ski resort shuttle, and a few blocks down from many restaurants, which making it super convenient for our stay. The layout was perfect for multi family to share. And Lori has been so helpful with many recommendation on ski rental, places to go etc., which made our stay a wonderful experience. Will definitely go back again!

We had a great time, and thought the house was perfect. The kitchen and living area is a wonderful place for a big group to gather, play games, cook and watch tv. Everything was very clean, and house is well kept. The pantry is super stocked - don't worry about bringing spices and such. The location is so good for going to Heavenly that people were actually parking in front of the house to get there when the Heavenly lot was full.

At first we thought the temperature control was tricky, but then we realized there were ceiling fans on the top floor that were able to counteract the heat coming up from the lower floors. Hot tub was good.

If we ever get such a big group together again, we'll be back! Fingers crossed.

Good place to stay

  • 3 of 5

Location is great but house has issues. Major issue is temperature control. Thermostat is in basement(coldest part of house) which makes temp in house extremely hot. We had to turn system off, as it was easier to deal with cold. House is also extremely noisy, you can here people whispering from room to room. If you are gathering in kitchen/living area and people are sleeping, you might as well just go down and wake them up first. Only 3 eyes work on range, again making things difficult. I understand Tahoe has got a ton of snow in January, but the rental company did nothing to clear snow off any of the balconys, to include uncovering the grill. The hot tub was not clean between us and previous guests. Not one bathroom had soap or shampoo and there was only the toilet paper remaining on roll with no back up. Our group will be back to Tahoe, but we will not rent this house again. The 3 stars are for location, house gets 1 star.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your feedback as it always helps us to make improvements to our home and our guest experience. We would have loved for you to contact us during your stay so we could have addressed your concerns promptly and directly. We've already fixed the stove burners and talked to our cleaning staff to ensure they are leaving proper amounts of toilet paper out for guests (and we are always responsive to bringing more by the house whenever we're notified it's needed!) As a note (and as advertised) we provide hand soap and dish soap, but not shampoo, conditioner or body soap. Our hot tub crew is also very responsive to concerns, and had the tub not been cleaned, they would have been out immediately to fix the situation. Tahoe has been full of snow this year (hooray!) and we, like most homes in the area, don't maintain the backyard or balconies due to the excessive snowfall and ice. Unlike a hotel with a maintenance crew on staff, we have a family owned and operated cleaning and snow removal team we rely on for maintaining our home. We've owned and rented out our home for nearly 5 years now, and certainly understand your concern with heating a 3-level house. That being said, we haven't had many groups experience the challenges you outlined below, and when we have, we've been able to help by asking guests to close the upstairs vents, use the provided space heaters in the downstairs rooms, etc. Several years ago we asked our local HVAC company come out to analyze the property, and they advised and facilitated moving the thermostat to the bottom floor, as to ensure the coolest area of the home gets heated properly. Again we thank you for your feedback as we always are looking for ways to improve the guest experience and regret your experience wasn't up to your expectations.
