Our family had the best time at this lodge! The description was super accurate and the host was super nice. They even left a small cup with live flowers for us on the dining table :) We enjoyed the game room downstairs every night as well as the hot jacuzzi! We will definitely come back to this place. It's close to all the wonderful places to visit; the town, Casino, Shopping centers, trails, lakes, restaurants, even a trout farm :) You cannot regret staying at this place.

Thanks Eric, we liked having you as well! Thanks for pointing out all that is awesome with the Cabin and; the shout out on my responses. We like folks who can take charge on their own and recognize the cabin and Tahoe for what they are! Glad you enjoyed yourself. Take care!
Very nice place Christopher has, clean and inviting. It was our first trip to Tahoe in the summer and even the weather wasn't on our side, we still had a good time. Right now we are already planning to come back during winter, and I will have no problem stay at Christopher's place again.
This is my 5th time staying at Christopher's place in Tahoe!!
Why do we keep coming back?
1) Christopher makes the process easy
2) the location is ideal; you feel like you're secluded and yet are just 3 mins from the grocery store, 5 minutes from the lake and 10 minutes from fantastic hiking or skiing
3) The house is perfect for groups as it includes a range of sleeping options, large open kitchen that is perfect for group meals and a big basement
4) We love the outside deck with a hot tub and a gas fire that's perfect for night s'mores.
Simply put, it's a great spot and hopefully we'll be back again soon!
Chris's home is very beautiful and in a beautiful spot. Very nicely decorated, clean, bright and packed full games. We enjoyed our stay there. We stayed for 2 nights. I’d say our experience was very positive. We traveled with our 5 months old son, strictly from a parenting point of view, here are some things to look out for in my opinion: Also, for families wanting to watch movies, I would recommend do not bring your personal laptop or ipad..Chris has a enough subscriptions like Amazon, Netflix etc to enjoy during stay. Internet was good and works seamlessly. Cell reception was very with AT&T and TMobile. But, Internet did the job well for us. Again, overall a lovely time.
In hindsight the AirBnB was a little expensive for our three night stay. (this was because we went on a weekend and as I looked at the booking later realized there was a 200 night premium for that). My fault should have been more thorough reviewing the reservation. The lighting in the house was very sparse and at night the kids were hesitant to go the basement to enjoy the games... wish'd there was a tv upstairs that we all could have cuddled up to in the living room. Loved the iPad with instructional videos - would never have found them tough if our 14 yo hadn't poked around. Videos seemed very condescending... it was a little off-putting. Felt after arrival - at the prompting of several indicators that the host would 'berate' a guest for not properly cleaning that we were pressured into the cleaning option. I found myself overly concerned about everything our kids would touch or use... it was slightly uncomfortable. The beds, kitchen, patio etc were great options but again the looming concern that we would accidentally do something inadvertently and then be slammed for it was always a concern. Location was fine.... might've reconsidered to stay closer into to town and just gotten a suite where there was a pool and Jacuzzi, for our small group at least. Our host was prompt in returning small inquiries, and of course after booking cleaning option - did mention we left the place impeccably... that was two fold - its how we leave all our hosts... and again, the pressure. Basement had an uncomfortable odor and again, was cold and dark for the kids... Best of luck to Christopher. Thank you for the stay.
Christopher was a wonderful host. He responded very quickly to questions and offered additional information about local venues. Went above and beyond, would definitely stay again!!
