Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Karen and Mike's house was fantastic! Located on a beautiful street, the house was perfect for 4 adults and 3 kids. It was warm, cozy and comfy. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you need. And we loved the open layout out of the living room, dining room and the kitchen. We would absolutely stay at Karen and Mikes house again when we head back up to Tahoe!

  • Great time. Karen and Mike were very friendly and helpful. Look forward to coming up to Tahoe again.

  • Karen & Mike are great hosts, nice, warm and friendly people. They live in the area (upstairs) and provided us with lots of tips to get around. Local community has a number of amenities you have a luxury to use being their guests. The house is just stellar: remodeled (you can really see how much care and efforts were put in it) and very well maintained. It has everything you need during your stay: backyard you can sled at, patio you can grill at, fully equipped kitchen, large living room with TV. If you are looking for a perfect place to stay in North Lake Tahoe - make no mistake and stay at Karen's Cabin - our #1 option for next year trips.

    March 2014
  • Mike and Karen have a beautiful home and are very warm people. Everything was spotless and well stocked. The apartment gives a lot of privacy. The covered patio is wonderful, and the back opens to a nice redwood area - our kids had a blast sledding there. We had to leave in a hurry, but hope we can come back again soon!

  • Karen and Mike were great hosts and their apartment is wonderful. Very comfortable and quiet. It had all the amenities needed for a home away from home. We used the BBQ on our private deck protected from the elements and the full size kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our own meals ( and clean up using the dishwasher)
    I recommend their place to all In the Airbnb community

    February 2014
  • We came for a short ski break and were lucky enough to get snow - perfect timing in this dry winter.

    The cabin is awesome. Our three year old loved being pulled around on the sledge and having snowball fights on the deck. The adults enjoyed a game of table tennis and round of golf in the "man cave" basement!

    The apartment has everything you need for a break, it really is a home from home. As the name suggests, Skislope way is on a hill, but Karen gives directions for the better plowed route. Our two wheel drive Sienna minivan managed to make it up and down the hill, though we did need to put chains on one day (once you're going up the hill, don't stop!).

    Thanks to Karen and Mike for being wonderful hosts and helping make our stay so enjoyable.

    February 2014
  • Mike was very helpful and informative even though there was no issue for us to bring to him during the stay. The level we stayed was big and updated, and the lowest level had mini golf and a endless pool, which would have been great if we brought swimwear.
    The house is about several miles north of downtown Truckee, and 45 min away from Incline Village.

    January 2014
  • The apartment was great, equipped with everything we needed and more. Karen and Mike were really accommodating with our arrival time and they showed their aim to help us if we needed anything. Great experience overall, thanks!!!

    January 2014
  • We had a really great Christmas week here. The house is spacious, well decorated and has all the amenities. The view from the rooms or the large patio of the pine forest is awesome. There is much to do if you want or the perfect setting to relax and read a book.
    Moreover the hosts are very warm, welcoming and helpful people. They made sure that we had a great stay and even helped us when our car got stuck on the snowy road. (I had really bad tires).
    We would like revisit them again for our future vacations and highly recommend this place for anybody looking for a perfect place.

    December 2013
  • Beautiful cabin and scenery. Perfect hosts at Karen's cabin. Very comfortable and cozy, we will be back soon.
