The master bedroom has a pristine en-suite bathroom with a bathing tub and private access to the deck. Two additional guests will find comfortable sleeping accommodations on the sleeper sofa in the living room.

    -- THE LOCATION --

    When you're not dining at the property, head out the door to enjoy a meal at one of the delicious local eateries nearby. A few hot spots include The Old Post Office Cafe, Gar Woods Grill & Pier, Waterman's Landing, and CB's Bistro. Pep's Bistro and Lanza's Restaurant are also great spots located up north!

    For those looking to hit the slopes, both Squaw Valley and Northstar Resort are about a 20-minute drive from this property. There are a multitude of spots around the lake as well such as Heavenly, Homewood Mountain Resort, Alpine Meadows, Diamond Peak Ski Resort, and Kirkwood Mountain Resort. Cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, and sledding are other great winter activities in the area.

    In the summertime, locals flock to the lake to work on their tans or explore the surrounding mountains. A few good beaches are the Skylandia State Park & Beach, Kings Beach State Recreation Area, and Commons Beach with its seasonal summer concerts.

    Some other ideas for fun include renting a sailboat to take on the water, playing golf at one of the prestigious local courses, or hiking Sugar Pine Point State Park.

    Overall the stay wasn't terrible. The location is good and the house is in good condition but it is not nearly as thoughtfully appointed as comparable rentals we've stayed at in the area. The cleaning seemed a little rushed as bathroom (and toilet) looked dirty. There weren't enough towels for the number of people staying there (not even close to exceeding the maximum number of guests allowed), no shampoo in the showers, and one of the bathrooms didn't even have a holder for the toilet paper. I've also never stayed in a place that required guests to fill the hot tub....which was done by filling pails of water from the sink indoors (the hose was frozen and even then the water would have been ground water and taken well over half of our stay to heat up). While the house is fine and operable, until this place gets up to speed on what is normal and expected as a non-discount rental in Tahoe, I would not recommend it over comparable locations.

    以为是4b4b,入住的时候没找到4b3.5b吧!感觉太脏了,尤其是地毯脏到不行,电视摆在那里看不了。洗衣房居然没有洗衣液或洗衣粉。有的厕所里竟然没有卫生纸。觉得脏实在无法忍受!

    I thought it was 4b4b, I didn't find 4b3.5b when I checked in! It felt too dirty, especially the carpet was dirty, the TV was not there. The laundry room didn't have laundry detergent or washing powder. Some toilets didn't even have toilet paper. I feel that the dirty is unbearable! (translated from Chinese (simplified))

    The house is absolutely gorgeous just like the pictures and very spacious. Everything was very clean and easy to use. We didn��_��̫t really have to contact the host because everything we needed to know was available in the home. The home was quiet and the location was very convenient and perfect to what we were looking for. The home has a book where it offers great tips about the city and what is available around around the area. We felt as if it was our own vacation home since the home was very cozy. We had a great experience overall and I would love to stay here in the future.

    My best friends and I do an annual trip to Tahoe and this house was a great place to stay! I would say it comfortably fits 11-12 in terms of sleeping arrangements. The kitchen was super spacious and made cooking dinner for all of us a breeze. They had a washer and dryer which was convenient for wet snow clothes. The hot tub was definitely our favorite part though!
