Excellent choice for multiple families

  • 5 of 5

First time renting this house with another family. The house was a great choice -- lots of space, great condition, clean and very comfortable for the 8 of us. Loved having the pool table for extra entertainment and the outdoor hot tub. We also all appreciated the layout of the house -- the downstairs was perfect for reading, playing games, relaxing, and hanging out for meals without the distraction of a t.v. When we wanted to watch movies we could do so up in the loft/family room area (which by the way was incredibly spacious, not what you would think of as a typical loft -- basically a large family room). The house itself was in a very accessible location, close to restaurants and the grocery store and convenient for getting to several nearby ski and outdoor snow areas. The owner was also super easy to work with and very accommodating. It's the first time we've arrived at a rental late at night after a long and tiring drive and were welcomed with a lit up house and a heated interior -- much appreciated. We also were sent detailed information ahead of time about what was included at the home as well as info about the surrounding area. Both families agreed that it exceeded our expectations and we would definitely stay here again!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home. Huge home gave us plenty of room for 5 adults. Loft was a great place to hang out in the evenings playing pool, a large screen TV, and a deck. We cooked a couple of meals and found the kitchen to have everything we needed. Can't wait to rent this home again. The owner was very easy to work with and responses to emails fast.

Spacious, Spacious, Spacious

  • 5 of 5

If you have a tall family look no further, the Timber House is the place for you! This lovely rental is very spacious and has large furnishings. With its high ceilings and doorways, there's not a chance anyone could ever bump their head on anything here. Even the shower heads are mounted high. In every room you will experience a feeling of openness, nothing is cramped. Even all the bedrooms have large walk-in closets. We loved that the Timber House has 2 master bedrooms. This home has a modern feel with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops in the kitchen, but still maintains a log cabin sort of feel with its hard wood floors and railings. We prepared most of our meals at the house, and it was great working in such a large kitchen. We would definitely stay here again.

Better Than I Imagined

  • 5 of 5

We shared this property with another family and it could not have worked out any better. The property was very spacious and had everything we needed, including a fenced in yard for the dogs. It is located on a nice quiet street and is a short drive to golf, hiking and the casinos. Heather and Ryan were fantastic to work with and I am already looking forward to our visit next year.

Looking forward to the next time we can stay in this home again!

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful home, very comfortable and beautiful. We wanted a place that had two master bedrooms and bunk beds for my grandkids. We enjoyed the atmosephere of the house, lots of space and furnished nicely.

We wanted to ski and do activities as a family and we did. The plus side was we also loved just hanging out in the house. We enjoyed relaxing and cooking our meals there.

I wish we could have had a day or two more there.

There are a couple of things that need maintenance but certainly would not make me not return. The hot tub was hot the first day but after that it would not get warm enough to use. The BBQ is corroded inside and the ignitor would not work. We lit it with matches luckily we found some matches because we were ready to cook our steaks. They need to add some more dinner forks. (very minor but worth mentioning) There were six of us and I know that this house is capable of sleeping 12.

Lastly, we had a problem with a hanging light in the livingroom. There are four of them. One was not working. My son in law was up late working and smelled something burning. He said he looked up and the wire to the light was exposed and he saw sparks. We reported it to Ryan and he assured us he would get an electrician in to fix it.

I hope that is a help to the owners and to Ryan. My husband and I own a vacation rental and I know sometimes it is hard to hear what is wrong but it is meant to help keep the property in good shape. This property is a great one! We will be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments and we are so happy that you had a fantastic time and wished you could have stayed longer! We have taken care of the items you had mentioned from your stay. The hot tub had a new control panel installed so the temperature is working perfectly. We also purchased a new propane BBQ with side burner and all new silverware. The lighting was taken care of the day after you departed. Again thank you for your comments and we look forward to your next stay with us at the Timber House!

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our two dogs and parents, stayed here for a family vacation while visiting Tahoe.

We cannot say enough good things about this home. There was plenty of room for all of us. We thoroughly enjoyed having all the convinces of home, right at our fingertips, and then some. The loft area, with the pool table and spa was perfect for relaxing after a long day at the lake. The huge gourmet kitchen was a definite plus and having the fenced in backyard for the dogs was perfection.

The home is just outside of "downtown South Lake Tahoe" which provided easy access to town and also showed us the quiter and more peacful side that Tahoe is known for.

Heather and Ryan were so easy to work with and we look forward to working with them again in the future.

Truly, we highly recommend this home and can't wait to visit it all again.
