The Space

Our Queen sized Treasure in Tahoe Room offers free use of SNOWSHOES in the winter and in the summer, BIKES!

We've had more than 100 guests on AIRBNB now and it's been such a wonderful experience. Buddy and I have moved to a house that is centrally located in the middle of Pioneer Trail in Tahoe for easy access to all of the resorts! This private room is in a beautiful house in South Lake Tahoe, CA and offers super quick access to some awesome summer mountain biking and hiking trails! Stay with us and explore some of our favorite Tahoe spots. Take the afternoon to head into town and relax at the beach. You can't get more conveniently located for access to any of our resorts, including Heavenly, Sierra-at-Tahoe and Kirkwood.

Our home is located in the middle of Pioneer Trail with quick access to both Meyers, the "Y" and the casino corridor.

Your guest room has a shared bath with our other Airbnb Listing "Small Private Room Sleeps Two."
I like to keep my home extremely clean. Your room features a queen sized bed with down comforters, The Company Store linens, and fresh towels. If you've forgotten a toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, lotion), feel free to dig through the "Hotel Bin."

We are Wifi equipped and your room has a TV with a roku box that allows you to stream content from Hulu, Netflix and Pandora.


This house is in the Montgomery Estates neighborhood.

I enjoy sharing my knowledge of the Tahoe and it's events with guests and try to provide each guest with information to help make their stay unique, comfortable, and memorable.

When booking, please provide arrival and departure times as well. I am very flexible on when you arrive and depart, unless there are other guests booked to come or go on the same day as you.

We are required to pay a 10% Western Slope Transient Occupancy Tax to El Dorado County. Our room price reflects the inclusion of this tax.



Whether it's hiking, climbing, skiing, snowboarding, boating, paddle boarding, beaching or casinoing, there's plenty of day and night life here.



If you're the type of person who enjoys stepping out the the typical tourist traps and wants a home away from home where you can live more like a local, this is for you. Have the comforts of a large home to spread out in and to come back to when you need a rest. Besides the bedrooms, there's a separate living room and large kitchen, providing more space than most other accommodations. So close to many things, one doesn't have to go far to feel right at home with us.

Buddy and and I are both super active, outgoing and athletic individuals. I manage a local cycling store and am happy to give you recommendations on local activities, restaurants, and snow sports. I'm an avid snowboarder, runner, swimmer, road and mountain biker. Buddy is a ski coach at Kirkwood in the winter and loves mountain biking in the summer. I love laughing, good food, wine, beer and coffee! Come live our Tahoe life!

We're awesome! Of course you want to stay with us!

Guest Access

We love it when guests share our home and act as if it's their own. Feel free to use the living area, kitchen and dining.

Interaction with Guests

Our interaction with guests depends on how much guests want to interact. Sometimes we're really busy and not home, sometimes we're home a bunch, sometimes we all cook together, sometimes, we never even meet.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Lauren and Buddy were AMAZING! This was the first time my boyfriend and I had ever used Airbnb and it was such a great experience. I myself was apprehensive because I had no idea what to expect and I wanted my boyfriend and I to feel as if we had our own space as you would in a conventional hotel experience. As soon as we arrived we knew we had made the right choice picking Lauren and Buddy's house. Not only were they so friendly and welcoming but we absolutely felt comfortable and at home. One of our favorite parts of the stay were the bikes they had ! We used them to go almost everywhere ! Thanks Lauren and Buddy

  • We had a nice stay of one night only. Easy communicaton and lovely place. Good to have the bikes.:)

  • Perfect location to get anywhere. Lauren gave us amazing tips to some nice beach locations located not on Tahoe Lake. They were awesome!!!

  • Our stay at Lauren and Buddy's home was great! We wished we could've stayed longer. The home was just as described and it really felt as if we were just visiting friends rather than strangers. both Lauren and Buddy made us feel comfortable and at home(as well as their sweet dog Auatin).The room was clean and bed was comfy. Lauren provided us with recommendations on good places to eat and the best beaches. This was my first air bnb experience and it turned out to be a great one. I would highly recommend Lauren's home. I will be back again!

  • I would stay with Lauren and Buddy again no problem. The bed was super comfortable, the wifi worked perfectly, and the entire place is as clean as advertised. The neighborhood was lovely and the bikes would have made getting down to the lake or heavenly village a breeze (had we used them!!!). A no fuss experience with as little or as much interaction as you want.
    All in all, great value for money!

  • Lauren and Buddy's house is in great location. Very clean, spacious and comfortable. We used kitchen for our dinners and our stay was very pleasant. Sierra is the nicest dog we have seen. Buddy was very welcoming, we chatted about Tahoe and other topics. Unfortunately we didn't get to meet Lauren. We surely would recommend this place.

  • Lauren and Buddy's house is the perfect getaway spot. Their home is in a great location in South Lake Tahoe, and they offer free bikes for guest use. Their home is clean, spacious, and very warm! They love to give tips on the best places to eat and visit. I would definitely stay here again!

    May 2014
  • Buddy was welcoming me when I got back to the house and he was very outgoing and friendly!
    Too bad I didn't get to know Lauren during my 2 days stay, I would've loved to!
    The room was very clean and the bed really comfortable and it was great to have my own bathroom! I was able to enjoy my privacy and I would definately stay again if I should be in Lake Tahoe!!
