About Valerie Puscasiu

Chris and Valerie are welcoming you to their home away from home. Our family loves skiing, hiking and enjoying the outdoor. We hope you will also enjoy this perfect retreat for your family vacations.

Valerie Puscasiu purchased this condo in 2013

Why Valerie Puscasiu chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

Tavern Inn is a newer construction with all the comfort needed. The condo is very large making it extremely comfortable for up to 2 families to enjoy all what Tahoe has to offer.

What makes this condo unique

Location, location, location. Close to everything without being in the noise and the crowd. Avoid the ski traffic in and out of Squaw and in a few minutes go from ski slopes to the hot tub.

In the summer, lounge by the pool and enjoy the outside grill and outdoor tables just steps from your balcony. Play tennis before jumping in the hot tub. Enjoy the kid's playground and the soccer field and take a bike ride to Squaw or to Tahoe City (the bike path is located along the condo property).

Truly a home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were very comfortable, clean, and spacious. We found anything we forgot to bring from home stocked in the pantry or refrigerator, including napkins, salt, pepper and a can opener. It is completely furnished with pots, pans, cups, plates, and silverware.

The fireplace was wonderful to have, especially when the power went out due to the storm.

The garbage bins were difficult to open due to the required bear guards in place. Since it is required for guests to take out the trash, the property manager should have the bins re engineered in order to make it easier to lift the lid.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the suggestion. I totally agree regarding the difficulty to open the trash bin. It is difficult to do it alone. I will forward your comment to the condo management company. Happy New Year! Valerie

Very clean, well stocked, and convenient location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the Ironman Lake Tahoe and enjoyed it very much. The condo had plenty of room for 4 adults and 2 children, was extremely clean and surprisingly well stocked. The location was convenient as a staging area for my family while I competed in the Ironman. My girls thoroughly enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Valerie was very nice to work with and always answered my emails promptly. We would definitely enjoy staying here again.

Great Place and Greater Owner

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 8/1/16- 8/8/16. We had a great time at this place. Plenty of room. We only has 2 adults and 2 kids, but certainly plenty of room 2 families. The master bedroom is very large. The condo was clean. Tavern Inn also has a pool/hot tub to use, and a couple of tennis courts. It is conveniently located to a soccer field, and a child's play ground. The owner was very nice and easy to work with, even though she is not local. In fact, I had actually accidentally booked the wrong week through VRBO booking system. And didn't realize it until months later. Valerie kindly rebooked my correct week, and didn't charge any extra fees. If I come back to vacation in this area, I'll certainly look for this unit again.

Enough room for two families

  • 5 of 5

We were a party if 8 ( 4 adults and 4 kids) and had plenty of room. The kids really enjoyed the large outdoor spaces to run around in! The condo was surprisingly well stocked with games, books, movies and kitchen equipment! The condo was clean and updated. The owner responds quickly to email inquiries.

We definitely enjoyed our time there and will keep this place in mind for return trips!

Great Place, and Great Renter

  • 5 of 5

This is conveniently located right between Alpine Meadows and Squaw. It is easy to get to. When we were there, Lake Tahoe was spring with no snow in sight - Squaw was a joke. We checked out Alpine and decide it was better than Squaw. So, we were lucky to pick a place that is in between both.

This apt is great for skiiers. It a very useable kitchen. It has more cooking equipment than those apt at Squaw. Hot water was sufficient for my group of 5. Apt is clean and everything, operational. Since it is winter, we did not use the pool. So, we can't comment on it.

The renter was most accommodating to our request, and went out of her way to accommodate our requests. If I ever return to this part of Tahoe and need a place to accommodate a group of people, I would certainly approach her again.

Car: recommended

Our condo is ideally located at the entrance of the Olympic Valley. A few minutes from both Squaw resort and Alpine Meadow. Lift tickets of both resorts are combined and a free shuttle connects the 2 valleys. The shuttle stops across the road from the condo complex.

The condo is ideally located for events like Squaw yoga week or the Tahoe Ironman. Tahoe City and the lake are less than 5 miles away, along the Truckee river and the bike path. Miles of hiking paths are just around the condo.
