Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

Doris's Place. Stay in one of Tahoe's most carefully maintained homes. Pride and care of the owner really show in this very comfortable 3 BR, 2 BA Tahoe cabin, ideal for one or two families.

The maximum number of people allowed in the home is as follows: 8 for families including children, 6 for adults if all couples, 4 for adults if any are single.

From the new flooring, window coverings, and HDTVs, to the gas BBQ and newer stove, microwave, and dishwasher, the owners want you to enjoy their home as much as they do.

Doris' Place at Tahoe gives you that Tahoe Cabin feel, surrounded by trees with quick access to the mountain and lake. In addition, it is just a 3-5 minute drive from everything you love about Tahoe! The beach at Lakeview Commons, Heavenly Ski Area, the Casinos, and dozens of great restaurants.

This cabin features a fantastic layout for families to enjoy together time or time on their own. You will love the ground floor living with 2 bedrooms a full bath and the main gathering area that connects the kitchen, dining room, and spacious living room. The warmth of a wood burning stove combined with the entertainment of a 50” HDTV is a good example of how this home provides the best of today with the traditional comfort of a mountain home.

The upstairs features a large family room that is the ideal getaway fun and games or a quiet retreat. Plenty of comfortable seating and room for playing games, watching the large screen HDTV, or competing on the deluxe air hockey table. With a large bedroom, walk-in closet, and full bathroom, the upstairs is a great suite for the kids or family. There is even a Pack 'N Play for the littlest member of the group.

For outdoor activity, you can head out the back or front door. Right off the kitchen/dining room you will find comfortable west facing back yard with large deck for dining, barbecuing on the new gas grill, or just catching some sun while reading a book. Plenty of room to create a snow man too! Need more space? Cross the street to enter the National forest trail system for a leisurely stroll or serious hiking, biking, snow shoeing, and X-Country skiing. You can store your toys in the two-car garage too.

Beds and Baths:

• 2 downstairs bedrooms with queen beds

• 1 full bathroom with tub/shower downstairs

• 1 upstairs bedroom with queen bed

• 1 full bathroom upstairs with tub/shower

• 1 sofa sleeper in the living room

Accommodate up to 8 people (four single adults max)

Reviewer Comments:

Overall Dori's place is very spacious and comfortable. Although i would say that for the price it is slightly dated with some issues that are easy to live with, but should definitely be addressed by the owner. I'm sure they know what they are as i called the rental agency to make them aware so i was not billed for damage, and they already knew. If your over 5' 10" which is my height the shower head in the bathroom downstairs will be a challenge at it sits at around 5' 8" and can be difficult to enjoy a shower after a long day at the hill. There is also a looong booklet of RULES to follow, which for someone on vacation can become fairly overwhelming and have you on egg shells at times. I get they want people to respect their place, which i would usually do, but it's slightly like having a party when your 18 and thinking your parents are going to come home at any moment. Some other things to note are, when there is a heavy snowfall the top of Alice Lake Lake Rd is not first on the list to be plowed so be prepared with a all wheel drive SUV or 4 wheel drive vehicle. The walkway up to the house was also a sheet of ice so be prepared to maintenance the front as your own, which is also slightly annoying seeing as your on vacation. The house is very close to the California Lodge at Heavenly which is nice, and also fairly close to town and Safeway supermarket (approx. 10 min drive). These sound like a lot of negatives, but are really things i think people considering renting here should know. RnR Vacation Rentals the company that manages it are fairly responsive, even though i would've like to get settled in and hour before check in and it took them 1 hour to return my call and by then it was time to check in. BUT regardless of all the above i think what makes the trip worth it is the company you keep and in that sense we had a great time! Plenty to do close by and adequate accommodations to lay your head.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time write a review, David. We are glad you enjoyed the space and comfort of the home, as well as its close proximity to skiing and town. We try to address any damage as soon as it is reported. Unfortunately we were only able to provide a temporary fix to the pocket door prior to your arrival. I apologize that we did not reach out in advance to let you know the situation. It has since been repaired. Regarding your comment about the rules—we couldn’t agree with you more! Unfortunately, Vacation Home Rentals are under attack across the country. In South Lake Tahoe, if we receive even one confirmed complaint from a neighbor, fines are assessed and the owner could lose their ability to rent their home! The signs are required by the City of South Lake Tahoe and El Dorado County. And finally regarding the snow clearing, the snow plows have been over-worked this winter, and they do their best to get to each home in a timely manner. For future guests caught in severe snow storm, you can call our 24/7 service line, and a member of our field services team would be happy to help you. We always make certain the walkway is cleared before each group arrives, and provide snow shovels to help you keep paths clear. We appreciate your feedback, and hope to host you again in the future.

Reviewer Comments:

We enjoyed our stay and RNR was very helpful every step of the way. It was a great location and a very beautiful home. The home was very organized and very well equipped. You don't have to bring much. Please read everything that is provided, I was very skeptical so I still took everything and then some. There was no need what ever you read is really provided and if you have any problems they are very prompt in addressing the issue. I would stay again and recommend you to give it a try you will not regret it.

This place it's amazingly awesome!!!! Fully equipped from the living room to the garage. Kitchen was ready to use with everything we needed to cook and baked. Bedrooms were really comfortable, game room was perfect to keep the family entertained, garage was full of fun toys to play in the snow! Outside it's so peaceful and the back yard big enough to play on the snow! This place is a short drive to all the excitement of South Lake Tahoe including the casinos, restaurants and the lake! Our family and friends did have a wonderful time at this rental! Definitely a ??
