Guestbook comments from the owner

This cabin has been the perfect location and retreat for more than one trip now. We've been there for everything from my Godson's 5th birthday, which made the backyard sled run a perfect thing, a weekend of stellar skiing at Squaw and a week of fun in the sun at the lake in the summer. Thanks!

Awesome home, great location near lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend at the house. The outdoor patio was great and the space inside was perfect for our group. Easy walk down to the lake and close to plenty of food and activities in Tahoe City. Would rent again!

Amazing and excellent

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with all the amenities included. I would want them to leave a sheet of directives as to the laundry, where does the garbage go etc. I will not hesitate to return to this property.

Good location, Good for 7-8 people, Great kitchen

  • 4 of 5

I highly recommend the Blue Granite Lodge. At the same time, I think there are some simple changes the owner could make that would move this property into the highest category. There were no written instructions in the unit including no information about how to contact owner. It took me about 24 hours to finally find information from past correspondence with Mr. Squires' phone number. The dial for the washing machine had broken off. It would have been helpful if the owner had put a note on the machine explaining how to start it. Even using the instructions I received after emailing the owner, there was no way to determine how long or which cycle was operating. It would have been even better if there was a working dial on the machine. Adding a door for the master bedroom upstairs would block out noise from the TV. We were unable to sleep until the TV was turned off downstairs. There were no instructions on how to turn on the ceiling fan in the upstairs master bedroom. It was a bit too warm even in the summer without the fan. I had looked forward to enjoying the cool night temperatures. I texted the owner who said it was one of the electrical switches in the master bedroom (there were 10). In addition, a remote control was needed to activate the fan. I never found the remote control. And finally, plan to get up early on the day you check out. You are required to wash and dry all towels which is a big order when 7 people are taking showers in the morning. The dishes were to be washed and the counter tops wiped off. All the trash was to be carried down a flight of stairs to the trash cans by the garages. This does not sound like much; however, it is a lot to do while getting packed, taking showers, and fixing breakfast for 7 people with a 10:00 AM checkout. In addition, a cleaning fee was paid. I have never stayed in a property where so much was required for clean up, especially a larger property accommodating 7 people. I do not want to sound negative because this is a very nice property. Again, I feel the owner could move it up a notch by taking care of a few simple details.

Awesome house in great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. It was very well equipped and in a beautiful location. We slept 6 adults and 4 kids no problem and never felt crowded. The master bedroom is huge and was a great place for the kids to hang out. We would definitely come back.
