About Joyce and Bob Miller- homeowners. We have 2 North Shore Rental Homes.

My husband and I live in San Jose, and have been renting our vacation rental homes in Tahoe since 2000. We often have our guests tell us that staying in one of our homes is more like enjoying a friend's Tahoe Cabin than a rental house. I make it our policy to have a beautifully clean, nicely decorated Tahoe Style home for your mountain vacation, winter or summer.

We really enjoyed this house and everything was just perfect. My family of 4 had a wonderful time. We enjoyed the Truckee River Raft trip TWICE, golfed at Old Brockway TWICE, and Parasailed! We've already booked our return trip!! THANKS JOYCE!

Best home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This is our favorite place to come stay in Lake Tahoe!! We and our friends meet here a few times every year (along with our pups) and have a wonderful time. It is roomy, homey, and has a wonderful HUGE backyard for the dogs. The Carnelian Bay dog beach is within walking distance and lots of other places to explore nearby. In the winter the slopes are also quite close (We took the pups up to Mt Rose - at 9000 ft they have lots of snow). The home is outfitted with anything you'll need - kitchen is easy for cooking and a large dining table made it quite fun for our large party to sit around at meals. Joyce the homeowner is absolutely lovely and so easy to work with. She was able to accommodate and extra night add on for us as well. We wouldn't want to stay anywhere else!

relaxing getaway in north tahoe

  • 5 of 5

Wife and I (along with our pup) had a fantastic 3-night stay. House was more than we needed (didn't use all the rooms obviously) but we really enjoyed everything about it. fire place was great, hot tub was clean, hot, and relaxing, and the backyard was huge. had a great time outside playing with the dog and also playing some badminton. only knock was that master bedroom mattress was a tad soft for our liking but hey, can't have everything! location is wonderful as well. if you like great pancakes, go to the old post office!

A Wonderful Summer Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four enjoyed our Summer week in this beautiful cabin. The home is spacious and very comfortable. The backyard was our favorite part of the property - we lounged, BBQ'd, played badminton and used the jacuzzi throughout our stay. The yard has a large patio, it's nicely landscaped and there is plenty of both sun and shade. Our two dogs safely enjoyed the large fenced yard. The home has two living rooms and wifi so there are many options to spread out and relax indoors. The beds are comfortable (lots of beds for a large group) and there are plenty of towels and linens. The kitchen is well set up and everything we needed for cooking and serving meals was available. There were plenty of basic supplies - soap, paper products, etc. - for our week's stay. The home is in a terrific neighborhood close to Tahoe Vista and Tahoe City. Many of the homes were occupied during our week's stay; it was fun to see happy families outside during our morning and evening walks. The walk to Patton Beach is easy but some may consider it long (a mapping website shows the walk as just over a half mile each way). We loved the home's proximity to Patton Beach and our daily walks were among our favorite parts of our trip. The beach is GREAT for dogs that enjoy swimming in the lake to retrieve tennis balls. We brought our dog to the beach daily. My husband and I rented a double kayak at Patton Beach and loved our hour on the Lake. In addition to enjoying the home and the neighborhood, the location of the cabin was great for other outdoor Tahoe area activities. We hiked at Squaw Valley, about a 20 minute drive (you can bring a leashed dog on the tram) and we hiked at Northstar (an even closer drive and also dog friendly). We went sailing and white water rafting and left information on the sailing charter and rafting company in the cabin's binder. We highly recommend this beautiful and clean home for your vacation.
