  • We had a great stay in this lovely cabin. It was very comfortable and we all had a very nice time. John was very organized in terms of giving us information (how to use hot tub, where things are, etc.). Great location, too!

  • We had a great week at John's mountain lodge in Carnelian Bay. We arrived on a snowy Sunday, but the roads were plowed and the house was easy to find. There was plenty of room and we loved the hot tub, kitchen and nice bathrooms. WiFi and digital cable made it easy to keep up with everything going on in the world. John was very courteous and responded quickly to any questions we had. A very nice stay!

    Thanks Bryan! Appreciate all of your helpful feedback and for taking excellent care of the cabin. Hope to see you back in the future!

  • We enjoyed our stay at the cabin. The rooms were comfortable, everything was clean, in order, as expected. The host was easily accessible over the phone when we had questions. Couple of things we didn't realize: 1) if you want the driveway ploughed, you have to call 24h in advance. The night before was not enough. This seems a bit annoying to me - if there is 2ft of snow expected, the driveway should get ploughed. 2) There was a little bit more paperwork involved than I'd have expected for airbnb. I had to sign stuff and send it back to the host etc. even though I did the airbnb verification routine. Again, not a deal breaker but annoying.

    Overall, we were happy with our stay. Its a great location if you're skiing northstar, reasonably good for squaw/alpine as well. Will stay here again.

    Thanks Rushabh - Glad you enjoyed your stay! In reply to yours:

    1) Yes the snow plow contractor generally tries to clear driveways within 24 hours of large snowfall. Naturally when they have a day's work ahead of them it takes some time, they don't plow at night nor if vehicles are in driveway, they are pretty reliable with a large number of driveways to plow.........in business for 30+ years. This is normal in Lake Tahoe. Snow shovels and a bit of user clearing behind vehicles to street is normal, we've done it for decades, good exercise!; 2) Registration (1 page) is important to us as Airbnb does not share details of Guests with Owners. This helps to ensure proper contact, follow-up and agreement with user guidelines.

    Hope to see you again soon!

  • Great cabin and host! Our stay could not have been better. Comfortable set up, close to lake and easy communication with home owner.

  • Had a great stay over Christmas, the cabin was immaculate, the hot tub was awesome, my only gripe was that John should have organized some more snow!

    Really great time, the cabin was great and will definitely stay there again next time I'm in Tahoe!

    Thanks Phil, I'll work on that snow, it'll probably show up this summer?

  • Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed our "Thankmas" stay at this Ideal Tahoe Cabin. It was very cozy with lots of beautiful wood beams and stairway, yet there was plenty of room and privacy for all. We arrived after a snow storm and the view out of every window was beautiful and the fireplace was put to great use. The kitchen was very well equipped with many sizes of pots & pans, ample dishes, serving plates & bowls and utensils, coffee pot, blender and even a crock pot. It was a delight to cook and create in this kitchen.

    The cabin is located very close to a convenience store and not far from Tahoe City where there are groceries, pharmacy and lots of fun shops and good restaurants. It is also close to Squaw Valley, which we enjoyed visiting.

    The owner is very attentive and everything was tidy and spotless when we arrived. He had even cleared the snow off the Jacuzzi top and started to warm it up. We highly recommend this cabin for your Tahoe stay, can't wait to return.

  • We enjoyed our stay at John's cabin. We brought our daughter (toddler) and it was roomy enough that she loved it as well and the parents got some sleep! The location is terrific. As this was one of our first times in the Tahoe area, it proved ideal for learning our way around. It was close to a great children's park as well as a number of spots that couples would enjoy as well.

    John was straightforward to work with and the house was well maintained. A great overall experience.

  • This house is beautiful! It is in a super quiet and wonderful location and about 10-15 minutes to Tahoe City which has cute coffee shops, etc.

    Chase is soooo communicative and wonderful. I am definitely planning and hoping to return soon!
