What a nice place! My fiance and I booked this place to celebrate my birthday with family and friends, and it did not disappoint. The house is spacious, clean, and has all the amenities you need (plus some you didn't even realize you need) to have a great weekend in Tahoe. Hot tub, grill, ping pong table, ice maker, coolers, movies, you name it - this place has it all! David is a great host, and is easy to get into contact with should you have any questions during your stay. I highly recommend this place, and would love to return with my group again. Thanks David and Phyllis, you helped make this birthday a memorable one!
David and Phyllis were great hosts, very responsive as we were coming into town to get us access to Higher Ground. Once we got into the home, everything was clean, well labeled and organized. Higher Ground is a great place for a family vacation.
The listing description is accurate, and it is in a great neighborhood if you want to head down to the beach, or if you prefer a walk through the woods, and want to see some of the local wildlife. I wish we would have had another day to spend there.
David and Phyllis have even set up the cabin with Netflix access for their guests. We brought a Roku stick, as we did not know this, but we didn't even have to break it out when we wanted to relax in front of the tube at the end of the day.
Wow....amazing cabin, simple as that. The house was clean on arrival with a HUGE hot tub and lots of things to do like ping pong, Foosball, old school Disney movies, great BBQ smoker, and board games for days. Our favorites were the giant size deck of cards and jumbo checkers. There was plenty of frig space for food and drinks. This place even had it's own ice maker, perfect for filling up the cooler when heading to the beach. Very close to Kings Beach (best beach in my opinion, they play live music and serve beer) as well as Incline Village and Tahoe City. Fantastic place, would definitely recommend and stay here again.
Great location and the house had so many great amenities! We had so much fun between the hot tub, foosball table, ping pong table and more. It was the perfect spot to celebrate my husband's birthday party with friends.
It was almost like the host knew exactly what our group would need the entire time we were there. The home had everything we needed and more, I'v literally never have felt so taken care of. I have stayed at many hotels and Higher Ground is now my favorite place to stay! The location, the neighborhood, and the layout of the home was perfect.
Thank you David for your ultimate lodging and we had the great time with our first family trip. We love your house that is right in front of the national park and we took a hike right from the backyard to the forest that was a great experience as well. Your house is full equipped with what we need and very clean. Once again thank you for having us and hope you all enjoy your stay with David and Phyllis.
Our stay at higher ground was wonderful! It was spacious enough for a group of 6 adults and 2 little children with room for more (kids). The house was beautiful, clean, and cozy, with lots of amenities and a a fantastic hot tub. The location is a short walk to kings beach (maybe a 20 min walk?) and was in a quiet neighborhood surrounded by trees. The king bed downstairs was like sleeping on a cushy marshmallow!!it was so comfy I literally checked the tag of the mattress to see the brand (for future purposes). Also, the host were extremely responsive and helpful even though they live out of state they went out of their way to make sure we had all the information we needed for our stay. It was a great trip and we didn't want to leave and talked about when we might be able to come back altogether! I would highly recommend this listing. Thank you David and Phyllis:-)
