Old Times and Adventures
My Brother ,Lamar , visited us this past weekend en route to his Colorado property where he is building a cabin. As is the case when family gets together ,we reminisced about "old times " and adventures.
The subject of our Lake Tahoe trips came up and we had a most wonderful time recalling the days/nights spent at Smuggler's Cove and Stonehenge.
The likelihood of our ever returning as a family unit is slim but I just wanted you to know that the times at your amazing homes and your personal warmth and hospitality are among the best our family has ever experienced .
I know it may sound strange,but there is something almost magical or spiritual about our vacations experiences we had there.
Maybe its a combination of the beauty of the place ,the fact that family is "together" with much laughter,relaxation and adventure all melding together.
In any case ,many thanks for you just being who you are and providing the service and caring that you do.
Peace and Blessings,
It has taken us a little time to respond to your review because, quite honestly, we get teary-eyed every time we read it.
Your kind words have touched our hearts and have made us count our blessing for being able to open our homes for folks like you.
We sincerely hope you and your family can find your way back someday.
The open layout is very inviting and brings friends together. Having a private dock for our boat was also very convenient! I have no complaints and would highly recommend Smuggler's Cove!
Loved this house, had everything we needed and more! Bikes and Kayaks to use, beautiful spa on the balcony and even a flinstones shower on the top floor :)
It's in a great location, close to Emerald Bay and Pope beach. Would recommend to all.
Beautiful property in the Keys!
Lake Tahoe is beautiful and having a place to call home for a week in the Keys was amazing. The views of the mountains and all the boats in the keys made for a picturesque setting and a great vacation. The house was really interesting and unique. Multiple levels and lots of decks meant there was a lot of space for our family of 8 and we never felt like we were on top of each other. We enjoyed using the kayaks and rented a boat for a few days, so the dock came in handy too. We also had a lot of fun playing pool and ping pong! There are lots of TVs throughout the house also, and while we didn't spend very much time watching TV, it was nice to have the option of having the news on or sports on and the kids can still watch cartoons in a different room.
The only suggestions/items that could use some attention- there are a few bikes in the garage which would have been great to use but the rims are bent on every bike. Also, a blowdryer or two would have been appreciated in any of the bathrooms (we didn't bring any as they usually are included in rentals we have stayed at- but no biggie- we went and bought two from kmart.) Overall, we had a great time at Smuggler's Cove and would stay again if we return to the area. Highly recommend!!
Blow dryers are included.
We spent my wife's birthday weekend with our entire family at this amazing property. There was something for everyone from our 9 year old granddaughter kayaking in the cove to the rest of our crew being entertained with fishing, paddle boarding, lounging on the deck, hitting the casino, or just enjoying the property. Thank you Robin for sharing your unique treasure. We hope to do it again soon.
our stay at your home
Robin and Rosemarie, My family and I want to thank you for opening up your home to us for the holidays!

We went in the hopes of creating family memories, your home afforded us to do that in a warm, inviting comfortable setting. Thank you again for opening your home to our family. Happy New Year to you both Shary
