Dirty and in disrepair. Infested with spiders Avoid.

  • 1 of 5

Overgrown exterior with splintered lumber and abandoned trash. Windows filthy with broken, torn screens. Exterior furniture = one ancient plastic chair. Grill filthy and unusable. House overrun with spiders- daughter got a bad spider bite in bed. Spider webs in all corners, window sills, ceilings, kitchen and upstairs bath sinks. Upstairs toilet broken. Downstairs carpet filthy and has not been vacuumed - thumbtacks and bobby pins in the shag. All bathroom drawers full of random, used owner items, hair, etc. Kitchen cabinet door coming off. Only 4 chairs for dining. Home is not cleaned, maintained or appointed such that it should be offered to guests. One positive-media/game room is fun, but we didn’t come to Tahoe to stay inside.

A cozy cabin in a convenient location

  • 3 of 5

I would give this cabin a 3+, almost a 4. It is conveniently located between Truckee and Tahoe City. The cabin has comfortable beds and updated bathrooms and kitchen. The kitchen is equipped with everything that I needed to prepare meals for the family. Being able to play pool during our down times was a definite perk. The rental company made the rental process easy. However there were several details to mention. There was significant road noise from the hwy near by, though when the windows were closed, it wasn't a problem. Unfortunately, there was a heatwave the week we were there, so we did keep the windows open at night in the bedroom. Another problem our family complained about was the slow Wifi connection. Upon leaving, I made the rental company aware of the following issues: carpenter ants were invading the downstairs, especially at night. The washing machine is wearing out as it only can handle extra small loads. The grill didn't seem to be working. The large tv in the pool room wasn't connected to the satellite. The rental company was very responsive to my concerns, and I imagine will fix the issues soon. --One other thing to mention is that the bridge to the cabin is very hard to find for the first time at night, (my GPS didn't register the address, not sure why). The rental company gave detailed instructions to find it, which helps a lot, but I thought I would give a heads up about it.

Right on the Truckee River!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect family vacation home. We enjoyed the beautiful views of the Truckee River while playing pool in the upstairs family room! The heated floor in the master bathroom was a great treat during our winter stay! All you need to bring is food the home is equipped with everything else. Can’t wait to schedule our return!
