Parking: This is a residential area, so parking is limited. Our driveway, which is a bridge, holds four large cars or six very small cars. There is no parking in the garage during winter to prevent melting snow seeping into living quarters under garage. Street parking is illegal in the area from November to April. Please plan accordingly, and talk to us about available options if you need to bring more vehicles. Most Tahoe rentals have limited parking, so it's wise to check when you rent to avoid surprises.

About Tim and Janet Goldsmith

We are a nature-loving couple who have found our special place here at the top of Tahoe. We've lived in the area since 1990. We love the peaceful sound of the wind through the trees. Relaxing on the deck, it's hard to believe the casinos are just 10 minutes away.

Tim and Janet Goldsmith purchased this house in 2012

Why Tim and Janet Goldsmith chose Lake Tahoe Area

Tahoe has a unique combination of inspiring scenic beauty, relaxing rural setting and exciting nightlife. Our house maximizes the benefits of this great location. It is in a very quiet corner of Tahoe, yet the big city entertainment and the ski lifts are just beyond our doorstep.

What makes this house unique

Three blocks to Boulder Lodge at Heavenly Ski Resort. Close to Tahoe Rim trail for hiking and mountain biking. Just a few miies to Nevada Beach at Tahoe, or restaurants, casinos, shows, and shopping in Stateline. Walking distance to Fox and Hound restaurant/bar and a convenience store. Quiet area with lots of privacy at the house. Bus stop a half-block away will take you to Stateline casino core and the shores of Lake Tahoe.

Great property for a family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property for a family reunion. Located on the mountain with beautiful views and great hiking opportunities. Plenty of room for 16 of us. 2 private master suites was perfect for older adults. Close to casinos and beaches. Cabin was well stocked for cooking. Suggest bringing your own beach towels and ice chest if you plan to visit the beaches. Thank you Tim for sharing your home with us. We made some wonderful new memories!

Loved the various levels of the home. The group enjoyed each floor.

  • 4 of 5

Our parent REBOOT group enjoyed this house fully. Each floor offered various levels of entertainment which suited the group. Each year (3rd) this group of parents have a kid-free weekend to enjoy adult fun and REBOOT before school begins. Then is all about the kids and family until the next summer adventure. Tim was available if needed and made sure any questions we had got response almost immediately. Thanks for providing a "chill" atmosphere TG. Enjoy the Sierra Nevada variety pack.

Beautiful, spacious, cozy home with a peaceful view!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely beautiful, it was more then we expected. There was enough room for 15 of us and we were never stepping over each other. The home is fully furnished and the kitchen is very well stocked with everything and anything you might need, this was quite a surprise. I've stayed in other homes and never have I had a home have absolutely everything needed to make a meal from groceries we purchased!!! We all loved the home and enjoyed our stay. The owner, Tim, was very quick to respond to any small thing we asked about and he was very pleasant to talk to. The pictures of the home do not give it justice, it is absolutely amazing in person!!!! I have to say we were all very satisfied with the renting of this home and will definitely would like to do so again with our next family get together. Thank you very much Tim for having such a wonderful home and opening your door to me and my family, also for being a wonderful host!! I would definitely recommend this home to anyone with a big group of people, you will not be disappointed.

Great time - very spacious!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Tahoe celebrating my in-laws 80th birthday, it was so nice to have plenty of room for everyone, there was 16 in our party. Everything went great, the patio/balcony on the main level provided a great view of the woodsy area behind the home and we even got to see a buck grazing. Thank you Tim!

Plenty of room, good location, but needs some improvements

  • 3 of 5

The property was in a great location, 10 min from Tahoe and the lake beaches. The kitchen was well stocked with everything my family needed and the beds were comfortable, we had plenty of room; however, the place was missing screens in many of the rooms making it difficult to open the house at night to enjoy the cool night air. Also, one of the bedrooms (king size bedroom) the air vent wouldn't open so that room was very warm. The home also needed a deep cleaning, many corners full of cob webs and dirty. The hot tub cover was very hard to remove and replace also. The home just needs some serious updating.

Owner's Response: I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay more. This is, by far, the worst review we have ever received. So I feel I should point out a few facts. The house is cleaned by a team of professionals after each group of guests. After you complained about the messy corners, I personally inspected each room and (with one exception, below) saw no problems. Even looking under beds and in closets i saw no dust or cobwebs. There WAS one corner of the the entertainment room under the end table between the two couches where apparently a houseplant had been tipped over spilling some potting soil on to the rug. This must have happened during the stay just before yours and had unfortunately been missed by the maids. Let me know If you would like a small refund to help recompense you for this inconvenience. There are screens on all the doors and windows except one of the two sliding glass doors in the living room and one of the two large windows in the living room. NONE of the many windows and sliding glass doors in any of the other rooms are missing screens. It has been a warmer than normal summer. But in my experience, the air conditioning works quite well, keeping the house cool even at the hottest times of the day, if you keep the doors and windows shut. I should point out that is somewhat unusual for a tahoe home to even have an air conditioner, as the nights are so cool. Hot tub covers do tend to be a bit heavy and bulky. Was there something about our hot tub cover in particular that made it more difficult than normal to manage?
