About Diana Cornish

Our names are Pete and Diana. We are originally from England and have lived in California since 1981. We have always loved visiting Lake Tahoe so decided to buy the property in 2006. We had it completely remodeled from top to bottom and it was important to us to make it as comfortable as our own home in Clayton. We treasure our family weekends with our now grown children and their partners, snowboarding, hiking, biking, and enjoying the beautiful surroundings. We hope you do too!

Diana Cornish purchased this house in 2006

Why Diana Cornish chose South Lake Tahoe

We chose this property because we loved the cabin feel and the large open space that lends itself to a large group. We loved the quiet location given that it is about ten minutes from the lake, Heavenly Ski Resort and the casinos.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just to let you know that we very much enjoyed your house, and had a great time while we stayed there. The house is very well-appointed and just very comfortable. I particularly liked that you had nice big tables and enough chairs both inside and outside around which everyone could gather, and that the sofas are also well set up for people hanging out together.

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house is adorable and loaded with everything you need while you are away from home. I was so impressed by the bathroom, kitchen and laundry items available. We brought all of these items with us but there was no reason too. This home was ready for us to walk in and function just like we were at home. Everything is clean and well cared for. The beds were extremely comfortable. This is a great location. It was in a neighborhood but quiet and safe. We had a great stay.

Awesome way to spend a 50 th anniversay

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful way to spend a 50th wedding anniversary with a family reunion. Beautiful home, well appointed with lots of extras. Plenty of room for 12 people to spread out, enjoy the Jacuzzi, play games, watch TV, cook/BBQ, read in a hammock and just enjoy the area, beach, casinos, hiking, boating and many other lake activities.

We four all agreed that the house was more than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was very enjoyable. The house was well furnished with all the necessities, but also the extras: tissues, lotions, etc. The location was great; we felt like "townies" after one day of driving to different venues.

When questions did arise about starting grill and opening hot tub, Diana and Pete were very accommodating over the phone to help us move forward.

We came to the area to golf and were very pleased with the variety of the four courses we played: Tahoe Paradise Golf Course, Lake Tahoe Golf Course, Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course and The Ranch in Genoa, NV.

We also had a wonderful experience in dining at Tep's Villa Roma in South Lake Tahoe.

We would definitely use their home again and/or recommend it to friends and family.

Almost forgot to mention the weather extremes we experienced; sunny and 70's for golf (but windy) for 4 days, then 2 days of 30's and snow showers. Loved the mountain scenery and atmosphere.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at Diana and Pete's Vacation Rental. Their home had everything one could need and was very clean upon our arrival. The location is perfect to get to any of all of what South Lake Tahoe has to offer. We particularly enjoyed use of the hot tub, pool table and BBQ as the weather was just beautiful. Diana and Pete were easy to work with and even called to make sure we were enjoying our stay. We will most definitely return for another visit.

Perfect Lake Tahoe vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Three families - total of 12 adults/kids - and this home couldn't have been more perfect. It was very spacious, had SO many amenities - fully stocked kitchen with everything you need to cook (even a crock pot!), fully stocked bathrooms (towels, toilet paper, hair dryer, etc.), huge backyard that the kids were able to have a snowball fight in, pool table, jacuzzi, sleds for snow sledding, kids' games (which we didn't end up using since we brought our own but a nice thing to have), and a nice fireplace! The house is very well kept with nice furniture and decor and is very clean. Diane was my main point of contact from start of reservation to departure to return of security deposit and she was a pleasure to communicate with. WE WILL DEFINITELY BE BOOKING THIS HOME AGAIN FOR OUR NEXT LAKE TAHOE STAY! Thank you Diane for giving us a home away from home!
