The Frank Lloyd Wright Room: This large room is decorated in the craftsman style made famous by American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. A bright and airy room surrounded by windows, you can look out over a grove of pines from your bed and upon a beautiful Sierra mountain peak that is covered in snow during the winter time.

The Empress Room: With a gorgeous antique Empire style bed and marble top nightstand that would make Empress Josephine herself feel comfortable, this bedroom is truly elegant.

Lots of room for a reasonable price

  • 4 of 5


- Very spacious, enough room for the 7 adults in our party to have their own beds

- Plenty of extra linens and towels

- Well-stocked kitchen (basic dinner/cookware, utensils, etc.)

- Convenient location just over a mile from the lake and within about a 5-7 minute drive to Heavenly Village and Stateline casinos

- Hardly had to leave the house thanks to the large back yard, hot tub, pool table, and cable

- Owner was very helpful and accommodating during booking process


- *Summer renters beware* No AC in house (interior was hovering around a constant 80 degrees the first two days we were there, but thankfully cooled off the last two days)

- Backyard not fully enclosed as implied by online photos - only the corner behind the hot tub is fenced and the upstairs bedroom window of the house immediately behind the rental looks directly down onto the hot tub

- Active construction taking place next door (not disclosed in online description or at any point during booking process)

- General cleanliness was lacking - cobwebs all over ceilings and light fixtures, stains all over ottoman in living room, dining room table covered in greasy streaks as if wiped down with dirty rag, junk in garage (old electric organ, broken CD player, broken dining room chair, old microwave)

- No vent in range hood above gas stovetop (fire hazard?)

- Owner seemed to become less responsive and harder to get ahold of after receipt of payment (though to be fair we were there over a holiday weekend and I'm aware the owner also has a life and a job)

All in all a good weekend spent with good people. The rental was very spacious and served our needs for a very reasonable price. A handful of minor damages when we go there but I documented and sent pictures of all of them to the owner so we wouldn't get blamed and he gave my whole security deposit back. Would have given it 5 stars if not for the cleanliness issues and lack of AC. But overall still a good experience and would stay there again.

What a treat!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a relaxing "Mommy's Getaway" before the kids went back to school and this home was perfect for the 5 of us! The place is very cozy and offered everything that we were hoping for. The beds are very comfortable, the bathrooms spacious and the hot tub and pool table were a treat! The kitchen is well equipped with lots of serving utensils, dinnerware and wine glasses, the most important of all on a Mommy's getaway!

The house is fairly close to the strip and casinos and Safeway and Rite Aid are right down the street. The wi-fi was easy to access and best of all, the house provides HD channels, which I believe is such a necessity!

Jonathan and Laura were both so nice to work with and very attentive to our needs. Jonathan was always an email away and always quick to respond to my inquiries. Thank you Jonathan and Laura for having us in your home. We can't wait to visit again next year!

Cozy ;)

  • 5 of 5

Our recent weekend in this property turned out to be a good one. Everyone enjoyed the hot-tub very much as the jets were strong and water warm! The billiard table was the most popular item, someone was playing with it at any given time. The two sofa beds were very useful and practical for those who wanted something firmer. Having three bathrooms was a blessing! Having HD tv was awesome!

I'm just particular, as there were a few things we'd we had. But it's nothing to deduct from the home. The digital thermostat was rather complex to adjust, so we just opened windows. Some of the dishes were not clean, but another run thru the dishwasher did the job. Having a range over the oven would have been a nice to have, but wasn't necessary. Though the frame of one of the twin sized beds broke, it didn't affect our stay or comfort. The beds could be a bit firmer, but they were aceptable. The addition of a propane bbq grill would have been nice :)

All in all, the house is quite nice and is recommended!

Great Place For A Summer in Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 10 stay here for 6 days over 4th of July week. Renting was very easy and the house was better than we expected. The kitchen was very nice and equipped with most everything we needed. The pool table was a huge hit and we had a great time hanging out in the back yard (although it would be nice if there were a table out there). All of the beds were very comfortable, however we opted for air mattresses over the pull out couches.

The house was just a mile and a half or so from a great beach that had BBQs, picnic tables and a place to rent paddle boards and kayaks. We were also just a few minutes ($11 cab ride) from the casinos and there was a small golf course right across the street.

The only issues we had were that the two trash cans in the garage weren't enough for 10 people, even though we had them emptied during trash day. Also, the Jacuzzi was broken the first couple of days, but as soon as I let the owner know he had someone out there to fix it within a day, which was fantastic.

Overall we had a great stay and were thrilled with the house, location, and owners. We definitely hope to stay there again!

Best stay in Tahoe yet!

  • 5 of 5

We went up to S. Lake Tahoe for our yearly Summer trip and decided to stay in a the Sierra Chalet. Everyone in our group was VERY happy that we did it. The house itself is really nice. It is a big roomy home with beautiful furniture, a very elegant pool table.. huge hot tub in the back yard where you can enjoy the stars through a canopy of giant pine trees. Our children really enjoyed the big front and back yards and had a blast playing every evening when we came back. The pictures in the ad don't begin to do it justice. It is really the nicest place we stayed in Tahoe and cannot wait to return. Thanks again for a perfect vacation!
