About the property

6 Bedroom/6.5 Bath, Sleeps 12, Handicapped Accessible

The Tallac Lodge luxury vacation rental is a luxury home that is very unique because it backs up to U.S. Forest Land while still only being only 1/8 mile from Lake Tahoe and on of the few dog friendly beaches in north Tahoe (Patton Beach). Guests can easily walk to the lake, multiple restaurants including Old Post Office Coffee Shop, CB's Pizza, Watermans Landing, and Gar Woods Bar & Grill.

**In July and early August, this home rents from Saturday to Saturday.

The 6 bedroom, 6.5 bath house is designed and outfitted differently so it is not your typical 'rental' property. Five bedrooms are suites, with queen or king beds fitted with imported Italian linens made of high thread-count Egyptian cotton, and en-suite bathrooms. These bedrooms are nicely spaced apart for comfort and privacy, with one suite on the main floor, two suites on the second floor, a large suite with a separate living room and private balcony on the third floor, and a large suite with a peek lake views in an apartment-like setting over the garage (accessible from the interior of the house). All of the suites have flat-screen, high definition televisions. The remaining bedroom on the first floor has two twin beds, with close and easy access to a large bathroom with giant stall shower that also serves as the ground floor guest bath.

Main Level: The main level is handicapped accessible to the front deck by using a ramp stored in the garage. The front deck contains the propane BBQ (summer only) and ping pong table (summer only).

On this main level there is a gourmet kitchen, outfitted with stainless steel appliances including a 5-burner range with twin ovens, one electric wall oven and one wall-mounted microwave, flat screen tv, and a giant granite-topped center island enables breakfasts and dinner buffets to be served for the entire crowd, along with a dining table that seats 12.

There is a full bath between the kitchen and living room that is wheelchair accessible. Assist bars are available for the toilet that can be fitted upon request.

The living room features 30 foot cathedral ceilings, rock fireplace, large sectional micro-suede sofa, a formal dining table that doubles as a gaming table that seats 6, a stereo system (bring your own device adapter to plug into the receiver to listen to your own music!) and a 50' flat screen TV with surround sound. A large redwood deck is just off the living room, 8 person hot tub, and patio furniture.

Further down the hallway from the living room is a a bedroom with 2 twin beds, and a bedroom with a queen bed with flat screen tv with direct access to a full bath with a lockable door that turns the queen bedroom into a full private suite.

Second Level: Upstairs is the gabled-ceiling game room, with two couches, a giant LED HDTV and Blu-Ray player and foosball table. Just off the game/media room is a half-bath and laundry with washer and dryer. Down the hall are two bedroom suites with queen beds, each with their own tub and shower.

Third Level: A master suite with hardwood floors, separate sitting area, Flat Screen TV and Blu-Ray DVD player, King Bed, Japanese soaking tub, walk in slate shower, and great views of the forest from the bathroom and private balcony.

Bedroom Above Attached Garage: This suite is accessed either by the main house near the kitchen or through the garage. The spacious bedroom includes an attached bath, TV, and some lake views from the bedroom windows.

*For larger groups including family reunions and weddings, this luxury rental is 100 yards from both the Beadle Vacation Cottage and the Dale Lake View Vacation Rental.

All Agate Bay Realty Tahoe vacation rental properties are fully equipped with free high speed wireless internet, linens, bath towels (equal to the maximum occupancy of the house), pots/pans, dishes, microwave, coffee pot, blender, toaster, TV & DVD, washer & dryer and barbecue (many are only usable in the summer).

Great Location & Well Equipped

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this property for my husband's 40th birthday. The house is even more beautiful than the photos and was very clean and well maintained. It was a perfect cabin for multiple families and so nice that everyone had their own private bathroom. It was big enough that we all had a private place to retreat to while cozy enough for us to hang out together in the common areas (we loved the game table.) The location was great - an easy walk to the beach and the dock at Gar Woods (not to mention the bar/restaurant with live music.) The trails behind the house were a great way to get in a hike before walking down to the beach for a swim in the lake. The staff at Agate Bay Realty were incredibly friendly and provided great information prior to our stay. The house was well equipped with all of the essentials (toilet paper, linens, kitchen supplies, etc.). My only recommendation would be to bring a large cooler since there is only 1 refrigerator. Thanks for a great week in a magical place!

Tallac Lodge

  • 4 of 5

The lodge comfortably accommodated 3 families and was in a great location. Food and access to the lake are just down the street. Safeway is about 3 miles away. We also liked the expansive woods behind the house. We took the shovels and fashioned our very own sledding run for the kids - free and tons of fun! The bedrooms are comfortable and having en-suite bathrooms are nice. The suite over the garage is good for those with smaller kids or infants because it off to the side and quieter. The kitchen is fully stocked and humongous. We really did not lack any of the basics and the number of utensils and plates were numerous. The kitchen and dining area became our hang-out. There was one small issue with some of the kitchen drawers not remaining closed and could use some re-installation or balancing. The garage is full of free firewood but is too tight to park a car but there's enough off-street parking for 3 vehicles. Overall, we would definitely come back. We were comfortable and the location, both the immediate vicinity and local access to many different ski resorts, was good.

Rustic Spacious Elegance

  • 5 of 5

I gathered a group of 12 to celebrate my 50th birthday. The house was perfect for our gathering, with a giant sectional in front of a grand stone fireplace, and plenty of bedrooms and baths for all. I was afraid I would find that the photos online were ancient and not representative of the house currently, but I was thrilled with how perfect the house was. Everything was clean and modern, good quality sheets and towels. The lake was a block and a half away.

The back yard was gorgeous and fenced with a deck and hot tub. We plugged a smart phone into the stereo and had great music throughout the downstairs. Only 2 bedrooms are on the main floor so if your party has difficulty with stairs (not to mention the impact of the altitude!!) it wouldn't be a good fit.

The only negative is that the kitchen space was tight for 12 people. There wasn't any room to move around the table and the work space, while large in square feet, was long and narrow. Also, plan for LOTS of extra cooking time due in part to altitude but also (we think) because of the gas flow.

We would definitely go back to this comfortable and lovely home.

This place is huge!!! It's very nice inside and out. It's not too far from beach, yet not too close to the road. I can't say enough about this place and we will be back. Thank you!!!

Great 4th Week at Tallac Lodge

  • 5 of 5

Wow - what a great place for a big group and especially our dogs! We had the week of 4th of July with 14 people $ 2 dogs and it was fantastic. The house is new and clean with so much room. The yard is awesome with a big patio, table, hot tub and ping pong table. My only nit pick here is they need more of the lounge chars in back (there are only 2). But the fenced yard is so nice for the dogs. And hiking trails are right out the back gate. Lastly, the location is really nice. We walked to Gar Woods (a few times), a local pizza place and great breakfast spot. We were just 10 minutes from both King's Beach and Tahoe City so many other entertainment options.
