The Boat House could be a good property but sadly it is not. Whether this is the fault of the owners or the rental company or both is hard to determine. Key issues to us were: no storage in the master bedroom, half the kitchen cupboards locked off, every chair on the two patios broken, seemingly half the lights broken, and worst of all, the 2 big draws in the refrigerator padlocked shut! I understand the huge value of 6 or 7 cans of Diet Coke and some bottles of ketchup, but to seal off a third of the refrigerator is petty and annoying. We will not be booking this property again.

Owner's Response: Hi Graham, We have spoken to the owner and they will be unlocking more cabinets in the kitchen. There is plenty of light bulbs in the home and it's an easy matter to replace them. A simple phone call to us and we'd be glad to have sent someone to replace any bulbs and address any of your other concerns. We checked the outdoor chairs and did not find any that were broken. Perhaps these were beach chairs? We've had many other guests who have enjoyed this home and would welcome you back. Best, Melinda

Clean and roomy

  • 4 of 5

It's by the lake, but no beach close by. Too steep of stairs for most of us, as we're over 63 and have knee and hip issues. It was a very warm each day we were there, but there were lots of fans and it cooled off some what at night. The three bathrooms were very clean, but needed towel bars or hooks... not enough towels or washcloths either, but there was a washer and dryer, if you don't mind washing every day for clean ones? The kitchen was small, but very functional, and I mentioned to the management that one dishtowel was not sufficient... again had to wash it! Loved the balcony and there were two sliding doors to keep the air flowing. The 4 bedrooms were very good, I loved my bed in the bed and bath combo. The only thing I would change is two of the bedrooms had bunk beds, not sufficient for climbing at our ages, so make one of the bedrooms two twins? All seven of us said we would stay there again if it wasn't two story!

July 4th in Tahoe

  • 4 of 5

Previous reviews & photos were very helpful. The unit was extremely close to our expectations. The location was excellent. Lake views from the decks were as depicted in photos. Being minutes from Tahoe City was great. Proximity to the lake for walks was wonderful. Check - in was a breeze. Knowing it was going to be hot when we arrived & knowing the unit did not have AC, we requested fans from the leasing company & were very happy to find 4 fans in the unit upon our arrival. Being the 4th of July week it was a little pricey but worth it. Only a few small negatives, only 1 small TV in the living room & no working TVs in the bedrooms. Furniture in the living room - dated & not very comfortable. A little bit of a musty smell downstairs. On the plus side - the kitchen was very nice, had what we needed. The bathrooms were good , nice to have 3 full baths. Nice grill to use, laundry facilities & many little niceties throughout. Overall very satisfied with the unit & would definitely stay there again!

Nice stay in Boat House St. Francis

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a fun vacation staying in the Boat House at

St. Francis. The owners have really gone out of their

way to make this a warm and inviting place to stay, and the

location is great, close to the lake. Wells &

Bennett were very professional during the renting process,

and let us know that they and the owners wanted us to enjoy

our experience.

I am a little baffled reading the prior review. We

found everything we needed, including the items they said

they couldn't find, and everything was in good shape.

We only found 2 steak knives (lots of big knives), but the

owners said there were normally a dozen, and provided

replacements for the missing ones during our stay. We

like to cook, and the kitchen is really nice, granite

counters and modern appliances.

We found the sleeping accommodations to be very

comfortable--our teens loved the log bunk beds. The

upstairs living area was very pleasant to relax in, and the

large dining table and patios have great views. They

even have a beautiful stone fireplace that felt surprisingly

good in the cool evenings.

We will definitely be back, and both of our families have

already recommended it to friends looking for a nice place

in Tahoe.

Thanks for an enjoyable stay!

This home was very frustrating. First it was extremely hot upstairs (yes, it was summer) and at times it unbearable, thank goodness for the afternoon summer showers! Wells and Bennett were awesome, they brought us fans which did help a tad. The most frustrating part about this home is the owners have half of the home under lock and key. Many of the cabinets in the kitchen are locked which meant we had to have all of our own food we brought on the counters or in boxes on the floor. Even the refrigerator had all the drawers locked! It was a small refrigerator to begin with so we had to use our ice chests along with it to store our food! All of the closets except for a few had locks on them. Even the closet with a vacuum, broom and cleaning supplies was locked so we couldn't sweep the floor if needed. By the end of our time there we were fed up! If you plan on cooking any meals plan on bringing a lot of your own cooking utensils. The knives were dull dollar store knives and there wasn't one pot in the kitchen! There were many skillets but no pots! Be sure to bring simple things like salt and pepper too. If you plan on eating out then you'll be fine. On a positive note, the beds were super comfortable and it was decorated nicely. The living area is smaller than the pictures reflect it to be so if you have a large group keep that in mind. The main deck had cheap plastic chairs without a table, but Wells and Bennett (I can't say enough good things about them) bought a nice table and chairs to have on the deck for us. The deck was wonderful and had a gorgeous view! One of the questions I was asked to answer is would I recommend it to a friend. My sister was very interested in renting this home for her family in September and now she has decided on another home. It you don't have a large group and you plan on eating out all the time, I would recommend it. Otherwise I wouldn't.

Owner's Response: Hi Lori, Thank you so much for bringing this to our attention. I have addressed this issues with the owner and he assures me there is plenty of counter space, storage, pots, pans. In addition to sauce pans, there's a pot big enough for boiling lobsters. There are also all kinds of casseroles, baking dishes, cookie sheets. There are also 10 large knives of every shape for food prep. In the spice rack next to the stove there are two sets of salt and pepper shakers, plus some quality ground pepper that they used up, plus several other common spices. We are kinda baffled that you could find these items. It is our policy at Wells and Bennett if you need something, call us and we'll get to you, as we did the patio set. We will do an inventory of the kitchen items and if something missing, we'll get it replaced. There is a vacuum for renters use in the unlocked Master bedroom closet. The living space isn't huge, but there is seating for 8, plus another 6 around the dining room table. This home really about the great location and outdoor space with lovely grounds, private beach and pier, pool, lake view decks, and a huge park right door. You came up during one of our few heat spells and glad fans helped. The owner is looking into adding a portable ac unit, but the best way to cool off is go for a swim in the lake or pool. Thanks again and we will make 100% sure this home is set up as stated. Sincerely, Melinda
