Awesome property! Fun hiking nearby!

Overall we had a great time! The cabin is located in a nice quiet area, yet still very close to town. The hot tub in the snow is also a huge plus!

Perfect vacation rental!!!

  • 5 of 5

Let me just say that this is one of the best rental properties we have ever stayed on. First, everything you're going to need in the kitchen is available. This was a huge convenience as we did not need to bring or buy any kitchen stuff. Everything from pots and pans, utensils, glasswares, etc. were there nicely organized. Second, rooms are spacious enough and clean. The beds were soft and linens were clean. Everyone in my group enjoyed their sleeping area. Third, we really like the fact that there was an upstairs and downstairs living room/hanging out area. Plenty of room/space for everyone to enjoy. The billiard/ping-pong table downstairs was perfect and a lot of fun. And finally, the jacuzzi was a nice amenity and just a perfect addition to our vacation. Even though it was cold outside the water temperature was just perfect and made the stay a lot of fun. Overall, we enjoyed our time in this rental property. Herb was just a phone call or text away when I had question and he replied in a expedient manner. Our family definitely had a great stay. If you're someone who is looking for a rental place that has everything in it where you don't have to worry about anything house-related, then I highly recommend this rental property for you. I will keep this property in mind and will definitely use it again in the future. Thank you Herb!

Awesome Tahoe getaway

  • 5 of 5

I came to the Rawhide property with 3 other adults and 2 kids for a Thanksgiving mini-vacation. The cabin is just as described--and looks even better in person, and very nicely cleaned. The kitchen really is fully equipped. (We always bring our entire kitchen with us, because you just never know, but this time, it wasn't necessary.)

The homeowner is very friendly, helpful, and easy to get a hold of. The hot tub is huge and private.

The only issues we had were an oven with a faulty temperature sensor (notified the owner) , and our friends said the towels smelled a little moldy and needed a good bleaching. No big deal.

Thanks for getting our deposit back quickly! We will definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the feedback and the great review. We just upgraded to new towels and washed them but may not have dried them long enough. All will be good for next visit.
