'This amazing home was the absolute best place my family has ever rented in Lake Tahoe. Nothing like being right on the beach with access to the meadow, river and Lake! We also enjoyed being on flat ground and right off the bike path. We will definitely be back.' Stefan Todorovic

'We came for the world class skiing, gaming and entertainment, but ended up spending most of our nights relaxing in the hot tub and cooking in the gourmet kitchen. We even used the cinema room to have a couple of movie nights with our kids. I would recommend this property to anyone who wants a high end home on the lake.' Jeremy Jacobson

About Jason Griffin

We purchased The Ultimate Lake Tahoe Lakefront Retreat because of its location on Lake Tahoe and the fact that it is surrounded by Forest Service land on one side, the lake on another and the Upper Truckee Meadow on another. It offers the type of peace and tranquility highly sought after by anybody looking for a peaceful retreat at Lake Tahoe.

Jason Griffin purchased this estate in 2008

Why Jason Griffin chose South Lake Tahoe

I hope anybody who rents our beautiful home will experience the same tranquil and peaceful feeling that we get when we are at the home.

The property was more impressive than the pictures could describe. Everything was clean and organized. The property manager was extremely helpful and answered several of my phone calls every time I called.

Magical Family Christmas

  • 5 of 5

Our family finally decided to take a vacation for Christmas rather than deal with the stress of an in town holiday. We were looking for a vacation home that was stress free and would be a warm homey environment. We were thrilled with the house and location right on the lake with a walking path going right outside our back door. The secluded area is perfect for getting away and the house fit two families of four very comfortably. We were also thrilled with the parking accomodations and proximity to ski resorts. The house was just far away enough that we were removed from the busy hustle and bustle in town yet close enough that a run to the super market wasn't inconvenient. We had awesome pool tournaments watched football on the big screen projector had a magical white Christmas in front of a wood burning fire place and made the most wonderful memories. The house is well kept and the beds were unreal. We can't sing enough praises for the owners and the property management for how helpful and accommodating they were. We highly recommend staying here and appreciate the experience we have had immensely.

Beautiful Place, Lots of Space

  • 5 of 5

This property is a great location for any group that needs some open space and a large cabin to stay in.

Kitchen: There is a huge kitchen, with a full sized refrigerator and freezer. Lots of counter space for cooking, and a large dining room table. Most everything in the kitchen was provided (plates, bowls, glasses, silverware. etc.) but it was missing paper towels. Lots of open space for preparing lots of food. The stove is electric, so prepare for that. And the oven had some software issue and the fan wouldn't turn off. But these were minor items in an overall amazing kitchen/dining area.

Bedrooms: There are 4 bedrooms and 5 beds. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, and 3 of the bedrooms have large (queen or larger) tempurpedic mattresses. One bedroom however, has 2 bunk beds rather than individuals.

Bathrooms: There are 7 bathrooms which means you're never far if you need one. This was a plus, but not all of them have fans.

Common Areas: The upstairs common area is very spacious and has two very comfortable leather couches and a large leather ottoman. This is a great area for watching movies, hanging out, playing games, etc. The downstairs common area has a bar (with sink) and a full sized pool table in great condition (also has good conditions cues). There is also a large drop-down projector hooked up to satellite TV. We couldn't figure out how to get the sound to work though. If you can get the sound to work, I recommend bringing a Chromecast or AppleTV to hook up.

Back Yard: The back yard was the highlight of this place. Large area with a good amount of shading from very large trees. The grass was absolutely perfect and was great for yard games throughout the day. The back of the back yard is enclosed by a trail that is used by many locals and tourists for hiking, biking, and walking to the beach. There is very close access to a nice sandy beach area, right next to a dock. But, the lake was quite low, and getting to the water meant walking through about 100 feet of marsh. We ended up going to a nearby public beach to swim.


-The hot tub was not full, and didn't seem to have enough chlorine in it. We filled it up and ran it at 103F, but the surfaces were somewhat slick

-Good luck figuring out the A/C situation. There are thermostats throughout the house, but they were difficult to operate.

-The images on the site look like it's completely secluded, but there are neighbors.

Overall this was an incredible!

Beautiful house, great location!

The house was roomy and comfortable for our family of 6 adults and three children! The kitchen is commercial grade and had every convenience imaginable.

Jason was responsive to our needs. I would definitely stay here again! Best vacation ever!

A wonderful house for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Wow, this home was outstanding. Their was plenty of space for everyone to have their own area if we wanted. We appreciated the bikes in the garage and took bike rides nightly. We had plenty of other activities to pick from, pool, ping pong and table games.

The house was very clean. The beds were comfortable. Could not complain about anything!

Wonderfully peaceful and comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

My family Just spent 5 tremendous days at this South Lake Tahoe home. We have no complaints. The house sits at the end of a quiet street only a few hundred feet from the lake. Absolutely beautiful surroundings. The two master bedrooms were fabulous for our family and with 7 bathrooms to choose from, we never felt crowded. Every room had a Tempurpedic mattress which came with mixed reviews from our clan, but nobody went as far as to say they were uncomfortable. We cooked Christmas Eve and Christmas night dinners in the home thanks to the well equipped kitchen and enjoyed plenty of lounging time in the downstairs game room. The backyard is quite large and provided the perfect setting for roudy snowball fights and sledding for the kids. While we had a winter vacation, we could easily see how much fun this place would be in the summer time. Our only minor requests would be some fresh sponges and dish towels for cleaning and drying our pots and pans, and some operable oven mits (we found out the hard way the ones in the home couldn't stand the heat :>) Overall, we loved our stay and thought Jason was attentive and helpful. We would happily come back again.
