Windy (host) provided a lot of details and was responsive to all messages and questions. The interior looked much nicer in person than in pictures. The kitchen was nicely set up and the entire house is very well lit. There's plenty of space to comfortably fit a small group. Overall, we had a comfortable stay and it was conveniently located to stores, the beaches, and freeway.
The cottage was charming, with the feel of both history and modernity. The house is well situated for town and country activities. The view from the dining room is lovely and calming, across the little river and big meadow to the mountains. The furnishings are comfortable and the kitchen nice. While we were there, the city was installing a water main outside the front door, which presented some challenges for guests, but I am sure that road word is completed now. The cottage provided a welcome home setting during our travels.
Great Location and lovely home. We had a group of people who liked to do different activities so the key pad for the garage was very handy. Would definitely consider staying here again!
The house location and distribution is exactly as described. Everything was in place and ready to be used. The deck makes the difference in this house: it s the perfect place to relax, play family games, barbecue, and more with the background of birds songs and the scenic views of the forest and meadow.
property is near to various attractions in lake tahoe. property description is accurate and all the amenities are working as described.i strongly recommend this place my friends and family
What a lovely house. The location is perfect (within 5 min drive to Heavenly, the marina, and groceries store. The view from the back yard is stunning, especially in the morning.
It was raining while we were there so we just gather around the dining table and play Pictionary (which is provided). The beds were comfortable and the kitchen are well stocked.
All my family members enjoy our time here and we which we could've stay here longer!
Thank you, Windy - unfortunately, like some of the guests who have written reviews, we did not get to meet Windy in person, however, she was very nice, responsive, and helpful throughout the process!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the cottage and in Tahoe - this location is minutes from a Lake Tahoe beach (that was partially frozen for our visit) and about 10-20 minutes from the Heavenly gondola (depending on traffic). The house was clean, warm, and had plenty of room (3.5 bedrooms - 4 >double beds and a pull out couch, 3 bathrooms). The garage is small but our car fit fine - see previous posts for dimensions. The backyard was beautiful and although the house is close to the main road, we saw this more as a convenience - we were several hundred feet from Grocery Outlet and about 5 minutes from Safeway - we were also not disturbed by any of the traffic noise and neither was our 7 month old. The kitchen was great - it was helpful to have the kitchen inventory to help plan meals, we left some spices and such which seem pretty common - was pleasantly surprised at all the "extras" the house provided.
Overall, great experience - we would definitely recommend to anyone and would be happy to stay again.
