Great House and Awesome Location in Tahoe City. Very Clean and well stocked and cared for.

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and my brother in law stayed here for 5 nights during the week of the 4th of July. We couldn't have found a better place to stay for everything we wanted. Location, awesome.

This house is located approximately 0.7 miles to Tahoe City. We took our bikes and NEVER had to use our car, even to go to grab a bite to eat at all the great places that Tahoe City has to offer. There is a place called Sunnyside Restaurant which is located about 2 miles from the house, if that.....that serves lunch and dinner out on the deck which overlooks Lake Tahoe. I give this restaurant a 10....we also rode our bikes there to avoid any traffic.

This house is located in the best location I have ever stayed at in Tahoe City. It is surrounded by trees and has a beautiful wrap around deck and barbeque. The location of the house was extremely quiet which is always a plus. The only thing we had to bring here was ourselves, food, and our personal items. The owner keeps this place fully stocked of towels, pillows, sheets, paper towels, silverware, dishes, toilet paper, dishwasher soap and laundry was amazing!!!!!! The owner also keeps this house incredible clean, which is a huge thing for us.

We were even able to ride our bikes to the fireworks which were set off in Tahoe City, over the water. We did not have to fight the crowds with driving and trying to find parking. We ate at another great restaurant called Jake's on the Lake, which has a grassy area for people/customers to watch the fireworks, it was awesome. There is also a public beach called Commons Beach which is also very close to the house.

The owner was fantastic to work with. He even called us once we arrived to make sure everything was to our satisfaction!!!! He is/was so kind and so easy to work with not to mention very fair on the price for everything we were getting.

There is an attached garage where we were able to store all of our rafting gear and bikes which was also a great thing. On the deck, which was recently re-done (re-surfaced, the wood) was a very nice patio table and plenty of chairs for those nights that we barbequed or ate outside. The brand new stainless steel refrigerator located in the kitchen was also a great surprise and had more room than we needed both in the refrigerator part and in the large freezer.

I cannot say enough great things about this house. We immediately booked it again for next year and I am counting the days!!!!! Loved it!!!!!!

Simple, quaint, clean

  • 4 of 5

Just as described. Very clear communication from owner. But the main winner here is location, location, location. Easiest entry into Alpine or Squaw, tons of other activities around too. Thanks!

Good location, warm and cozy, Henry is the nicest host!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 5 and a couole that joined us and the cabin was perfect for our needs. The only thing I will advise is to bring all the cooking essential (oil, flour, suger, spices etc' even coffee and tea!) as there is nothing in the cabin beside salt and pepper as far as food. Everything else was perfect.

Charming but simple cabin in great location

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was in a great location for a wedding weekend full of activities in the tahoe city area. Walkable to most everything we needed. 4 bedrooms that are clean and simple. Bathrooms are small, but functional. Kitchen had everything we needed. TV has only the basic channels but works. Nice cozy living room with 6 person dining table.

Stairs to the basement bedroom are quite steep and can be a bit dangerous, and the host really prefers that a minimum amount of cooking be done at the cabin.

All in all we really enjoyed our stay and the cabin was everything we needed. Would stay there again!

Owner's Response: I want to thank this guest for staying, as well as his positive comments and wish to return. However, a request not to cook bacon during bear season is not a discouragement for using the kitchen and his comment about the staircase is inappropriate.

Super Comfy

  • 5 of 5

House was very comfortable, clean, and stocked with everything we needed for an easy stay. Close to paved bike trail and to zipline/ropes course at Granlibakken, both super for kids. Owner was easy to work with and very nice. Thank you again.

Much needed R&R

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful experience in this home. Before I ever made it into the house I fell in love with the deck. This is the type of deck that inspires people to sit and enjoy each others company. There is so much room to sit on this wrap around deck with its built in wooden benches, and it is surrounded by trees so it almost feels like you are in a tree house! The kitchen is clean with lots of counter space and done with a lot of great wood cabinets and flooring and it has a great bay window that looks out onto this awesome deck! It is perfect for creating meals to share with your friends and family whether you eat at the large dining table or out on (yep you guessed it...) the deck where there is also a picnic table. There was a ton of room for the kids, the wife, and even my mother in law to spread out between the 4 bedrooms but I was surprised to see everyone hanging out together despite the Wifi. Normally Wifi would result in my kids being sucked into cyber land but not this time! The rooms were cozy and clean. The kids loved the rack room downstairs (that's what we called it because of the bunk beds) It was an extremely short drive to dining and a relatively short drive to the local state parks. Would love to come back and explore some more!

The house's location makes it the gateway to the West Shore’s unique beauty including: by car in 5 minutes Blackwood canyon with a spectacular hike giving views of Lake Tahoe and Desolation wilderness and then another 5 minutes to Sugar Pine Point one of Lake Tahoe's most beautiful state parks with miles of protected wooded shoreline where you can swim or kayak in the crystal clear water or picnic midst the lawn and trees. At the houses doorstep are adventurous mountain biking trails leading to high altitude meadows with vernal pools.
