About Owner/Manager

My wife and I live and work in Yosemite National Park and purchased this home in hopes to move to Tahoe in the future. Every travel opportunity we get always brings us to Tahoe. We love the town, lakes, elevation, ski areas, events, people, proximity to amenities, and immediate access to forest trails. We now have a 4 year old daughter (Sophie), a 15 month old daughter (Kaylee) and dog (Abbita) that we thankfully get to experience this beautiful place and area with.

We are very happy to offer our home as a rental so other people and families can enjoy the experience of Tahoe.

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2011

Great house with a cabin feel and a responsive owner

  • 4 of 5

Jeff's house was perfect for my family Christmas vacation in South Lake Tahoe. The location was good, as it is away from the hustle and bustle of SLT, and on your way in or out of town. However you do have to drive anywhere you go from the house. The house itself is super cabin-y and cozy. The hot tub was very nice after a day of snowboarding. The photos are very accurate and representative of the house. And Jeff was very responsive and helpful, both before our stay and during.

One issue we had was the queen bed in the master bedroom was too soft for our liking. This is only a preference thing, but we had a tough time sleeping on that bed. There were no complaints about the other beds from the rest of our group. And for some reason the sheet on the queen bed came off every night while we were sleeping. It seems to be a little small for the height of the mattress. I would recommend Jeff replace the sheet with one for a deeper mattress.

The other issue we experienced was the hot tub stopped working one night, because of a loss in water level. We never figured out why it happened, but Jeff was very responsive and had it fixed the next day, and there were no issues with the hot tub the rest of our stay.

Overall I would recommend staying at this property. It was a good value, even during the holiday season, and the amenities make it a great place to spend a week. The hot tub, gas fire place, ping pong table and dart board made a fun family week for my family. And Jeff was a great host.

Cozy house!

  • 5 of 5

My family spend a week at this house and had such a great time. Everything you might need is provided at the house, tons of kitchen utensils, pack-in-play, cozy beds. The back yard was perfect for our little boy to run around and play and we LOVED using the hottub at night and seeing all the stars above. The location is optimal for access to trailheads like Tallac, Emerald bay, and Cascade lake (it's about a 10 minute drive to these) and a short 2 minute drive to Pope Beach for sunsets. On days where we were too tired for hikes we stayed in and had all the comforts of home at our disposal with cable tv, internet, and ping-pong! We'll definitely be back again!

Great Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My Girlfriend, I and two other couples stayed the weekend and had a great time. The house is located in a great neighborhood with very nice neighbors. The beds were super comfortable and the kitchen contained everything needed to cook and enjoy our meals. We had a blast playing ping pong and darts and the hot tub is fantastic. We cant wait to go back!!!!

Perfect Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at the Wentworth house for our annual Tahoe family vacation. The house is exactly as advertised, cabin decor, very cozy with comfortable beds, great game room and fully equipped kitchen. The yard was perfect for family BBQs & game nights. The kids especially loved the chairlift swing and the ping pong table. There are hiking & biking trails accessible right from the neighborhood. We have already booked for next year's vacation. Thanks Jeff & family!

Amazing Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented this cabin for two nights to celebrate my birthday. It was eight of us, and there was enough room for us to sleep comfortably. The cabin has a very cozy feeling but it did not feel crowded whatsoever. We absolutely loved the game room and spent lots of time playing ping-pong. The hot tub was an excellent plus and it was wonderful soaking while it was snowing. I also really appreciated that the house includes all the kitchen amenities because we used it all! We enjoyed spending time in the kitchen. The location is also ideal and it very close to the beaches on the South Shore. Honestly, my only regret is not booking this place for a longer stay. I'm looking forward to booking again soon!
