Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great cabin. Good location close to South Lake Tahoe, but just far enough to provide a little separation.

  • The reservation was canceled 11 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.

  • This place was Awesome! everything you could want in a cabin in Tahoe! Pool-table, hot tub, grill, spacious, nicely furnished, and over all a great time! The walls are thin so you can hear every sound. Overall I would definitely recommend.

  • Nancy was great and helpful giving us plenty of locations around town to keep us busy. The cabin was immaculate and even more spacious than we had anticipated. Our group had a blast. Highly recommend.

  • After amazing experiences with AirBnB in places like NYC and Austin, this was a major let down for our extended Labor Day weekend vacation. It's important to me that future guests know what they're getting, beyond what the listing says:
    -Neighborhood: not "exclusive"as described. The lots are stacked on top of each other and the neighboring homes and yards are junky; plus you can hear traffic from nearby highway 50.
    -Beach access: while lovely Zephyr Cove is nearby, you have to sprint across speeding traffic to get within walking distance to the lake. NOT safe.
    -Size: The pictures make it look like a large, spacious home; but it's a stacked A-frame with limited seating for 5-6 at best (especially considering the amount of beds it packs in).
    -Bedroom issue: The loft upstairs is not a legitimate bedroom; it can only be accessed by a rickety staircase, has a half bath that's tucked into a closet, and you can hear entire conversations from the room below. NOTE: When I wrote the owner about this, she suggested turning on music or using pillows to drown out the "noise."
    -Ambience is lacking: Mismatched light bulbs, exposed wires, and limited lighting overall. The industrial style carpet is less than desirable, especially considering the rules about pets and shoes.
    -Pet policy: it says pet-friendly, but you will be required to pay extra (if your pet is approved), and sign a waiver that says not a trace of dog hair on the furniture or there will be a $150 charge (what does the $300 cleaning fee include if vacuuming would cost extra?)

    This would all be worth it at the right price. But the listing over promises and at $450/night, it was over priced.

    Because there was no alternative on a holiday weekend, we made the best of it by spending our time on the patio and wearing ear plugs to bed.

    Response from Nancy:

    I did not appreciate being threatened by the guest that if I don't refund them money they will post horrible reviews about this cabin online! I have never had a bad review for this cabin since it is a great value for families, especially for a the price that this guest paid during the holiday weekend of $340 night....If some neighbors dog is left out and barks again at night call the police, that's is considered disturbing the peace and is not our fault. This is a vintage log cabin, so maybe the thickness of the flooring for the loft is not as thick as newly built homes. Like most homes, you need to put on some music or TV to drowned out sounds between people in bedrooms. Also, we probably have 15 or more pillows in the house to choose from or double them up behind your head. The mattresses are standard quality, they are not pillow top style, if you need that quality you should have asked or sought out a "5-star rental home" that has them. The carpet is the quality that is standard for rental homes. The snow and beach make it difficult to have thick pile, high end carpet. This home books solid and often accommodates up to 16 guest many of which are children so the carpet takes a beating, the owners are not willing to pay for higher end carpet that will get ruined. Your security deposit would be more like a $1,000 not $375 to cover damage that children (or partying adults) can do to an expensive carpet. I no longer manage any other homes in Tahoe, but if you want to find a better rental for the same nightly price I will refund you the last couple nights. You can call me or let me know. I will need the paperwork for the new rental showing some house information and total price you paid.

    Hope you can make the best of it...the house is priced well for it's size, quality and location, as well as being a major US holiday. Homes that sleep considerably less can be rented for considerably less, you should have sought out a smaller rental, though, even hotel rooms in the Casinos are over half of what you paid nightly! Price a home with a 4-5 star hotel rating like you mentioned you can stay at in Tahoe that is comparable to a 4 Bedroom home and let me see it! These super high end homes rent for big bucks, not in a budget of $340 night plus clean fee and tax, your dreaming. Get back with me when you find it and go ahead and move. Airbnb and I will determine whether you deserve a refund based on the facts. Try to have a nice day :) either way.


  • Nice cozy cabin near the lake. Some friends spotted a bear as well. :)

    Lots of bunk beds provide enough sleeping opportunity. Overall, a good stay. Near to 24hr safeway, beach, gas.

  • We had a great time at this cabin!

    The place itself has a big living room and kitchen area that was spacious enough to sit our group of a dozen guys. We also had enough beds for everyone (doubling up in the two king beds). We enjoyed the grill and hot tub on the deck as well.

    The location is also great: it's a five minute walk to a beautiful beach that includes volleyball courts and a bar. It's also a short drive to Safeway and the state line casinos.

    Nancy was very helpful and booking was fast and easy. The cabin was a great value for a group our size, so I would definitely stay there again.

  • We LOVED this cabin! I agree with other reviews in that the pictures definitely don't do it justice. We had about 14 people and everyone slept comfortably and everything was very clean. The master suite was enormous and had it's own little (email hidden)e only thing i would say is that the hot tub never really got fully hot it was more just warm but that was a minor thing. Zephyr cove was a short walk away and we walked there everyday. It was beautiful! All in all definitely a 5 star review i would definitely recommend and we will definitely be back!

  • Sweeeet cabin!! I was worried this would be one of those situations where the pictures look great but the real thing doesn't measure up. NOT the case, in fact it was the opposite. The cabin is nicer in person than it is in the pictures. We slept 10 people one night and 11 the other and we were more than comfortable, in fact we could have comfortably added 4-5 more people! We did run out of toilet paper but we just made a run to the grocery store so it wasn't a big deal. The fireplace works great and quickly warms up the home, the kitchen and bathrooms were modern with granite counter tops, the deck was spacious and the grill worked great. The hot tub was nice, there were birds chirping and you could smell the mountain trees!! We decided that we definitely want to make a tradition out of this trip and ideally stay in Nancy's cabin again if we can - well worth it!!!!!!

  • The cabin is beautiful and perfectly located near Heavenly. We had a great weekend enjoying the hottub and the slopes. We comfortably slept 16 people in the house with one air mattress (although we doubled up on a few beds). Great place for large groups.

    When we arrived we were worried we wouldn't have speakers for music but were pleasantly surprised to find a very nice surround sound system which wasn't even mentioned on the listing!

    Overall a great experience, I'd recommend.
