We are from Nothern California. Couple in our early fourties, We love outdoors activities (skiing hiking camping), good food and cooking and relax with our family and friends.
5 of my friends and I went up to Tahoe to ski at Alpine for the weekend. Frederick & Sophie's place was exactly what we needed. A nice, clean, quite place nestled in the woods. It was the perfect place to relax after a long day on the mountain and a long week at work. Thanks again you two for letting us all share you're amazing home!
Very nice property. Has living space and family space with two fireplaces. Hosts are very nice and professional. Close to homewood ski resort (6 mins). Next time we are going to tahoe, I will definitely want to stay here again. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
This is a great home in a great location. Our stay was excellent. I highly recommend it. It doesn't come through in the pictures, but the backyard is a picturesque natural forest setting. Opening the shades gives a view out back from anywhere in the main living area. It makes for a nice experience.
I took two visitors from back home to Frederick and Sophie's house; we enjoyed sitting in the backyard among the big trees and it is indeed very quiet.
Walking to the lake wasn't quite practical to us though since heading straight to the lake gets you to private houses with no lake access; heading south you reach a small beach pretty soon but on our first exploration we got lost heading north. Maybe an annotated map would be a nice addition to the otherwise exhaustive documentation for the house :-)
This is a great family house on a quiet street in the gorgeous pine trees. A walk to the lake, a stroll to the playground, and a bit further and you are on the Tahoe Rim Trail. It had everything we needed for family of 4 and grand parents.
The house is in a perfect location on Tahoe's west shore -- walkable to Sunnyside, the beach, or several trails. The home was nice too with parts of it appearing to be newly updated (kitchen, living room). It was stocked with all the necessary items for cooking, and had a nice gas BBQ as well. The hosts, Frederick and Sophie, were great communicators and were super responsive and accessible. Lastly, we ran into a bit of an issue during our stay (that was out of their control), but they resolved it in a fair manner. I say this as a positive and appreciate Frederick and Sophie hosting us in their vacation home.
My family really enjoyed our stay at this lovely home. There was ample space for the kids to run outdoors, and we felt safe enough to allow our children to walk to the nearby community center to play. We also enjoyed walking to the lake and appreciated the short ride into town. We will definitely return.
Frederick's home was an idyllic retreat in Tahoe! The home was more beautiful and spacious than we could have imagined and his arrival and departure instructions were incredibly detailed and thorough, allowing for complete ease coming and going. His home was just minutes from the Sunnyside Lodge (beautiful views, two great restaurants, and a lively bar), a well stocked grocery store, and roughly 10-15 min from Squaw Valley. I would HIGHLY recommend his home for a Tahoe vacation.
This was a great listing and great location. Looking forward to coming back on our next trip to Tahoe. Highly recommend staying at this listing!
