Other Things to Note

***We generally have a 3 night minimum but will consider 2 night stays on a case to case basis.
We try to be pet friendly when we can. If you want to bring yours, let us know as much as you can about the him/her and we'll see if it is a good fit. (We approve on a case to case basis, and if the pet is approved we double the security deposit.) The back yard is fenced in with plenty of room for dogs to roam and play. (*If your pet is approved to stay, it is always with the condition that he is not left inside alone. If you don't mention you have a pet, then the pet is not approved.)
Check out is noon, Check-in is 4pm--but let us know your ideal time and we'll accommodate it if we can.
A few of the "Dont's" and "No's": No smoking. And no loud parties or events in this rental, as the house is in a residential neighborhood where people really value the quiet of the woods and their homes. But this rule is a win-win: Good for the peace of our neighbors and good for renters too!
PLEASE NOTE THE FINE PRINT and Read In Full:
The county, the sherifs department and the neighbors in Tahoe are all vigilant regarding three things:
1. PARKNG 2. NOISE 3. GARBAGE
Renters must respect the laws regarding these issues, or citations will be issued directly to them, and also (potentially) to the property owner. Please know and respect the following:
1. PARKING: No street parking is allowed during snow removal conditions or between Nov. 1 and May 1. When street parking is allowed, it is only allowed within limited areas. We ask that renters use only the house parking--The house has a garage that can house 2 cars and space for 4 medium size cars in the drive way.
2. DISPOSAL OF GARBAGE: All garbage must be properly disposed of in the property's locked 'bear boxs' and no food or food items are to be left in the yard, on decks, or in vehicles. It's really dangerous for the people and bad for the bears!
3. NOISE: Renters must keep noise to a level that does not intrude on the peace of neighbors. Or as the county likes to say, renters "must not create unreasonable noise or disturbances, engage in disorderly conduct, or violate provisions of, the El Dorado County Code or any State law pertaining to noise or disorderly conduct." (Please help all enjoy this special place!)
--Cost to repair any damage to the house (repairs or cleaning) caused by any pets (or people) brought to or staying in the house are (of course) the responsibility of the renter.
***All rentals require a security deposit. and all rentals agree to the following rental contract:

Great house for a big group. House was just as described in the description and pictures.
The house is incredible, easily as nice as it looks in the pictures! It really had the feel of a family home instead of a rental; very warm and inviting. The sauna was especially a treat. Kate was very communicative in the days leading up to the reservation, and while we didn't meet her, the cleaning staff that come in are very friendly, accommodating, and respectful. A great place to spend a weekend in Tahoe!
