Elena's home was really lovely. It's conveniently located right next to Sunnyside and Fire Sign Cafe (two of the best spots to eat in Tahoe), right down the street from Tahoe City village, and about 15 min from Squaw. The jacuzzi was fantastic, and the cabin was comfortable and cozy.
This cabin was perfect! Great location and if you have little ones, it's fully stocked with highchair, crib and toys. The location is very central for squaw and the convenience of Tahoe City for restaurants and groceries. We loved it!
Elana's cabin was perfect! It is exactly as described (cute and comfortable). The kitchen was well outfitted and it was easy to cook anything with the supplies that were provided. The bedrooms were comfortably furnished and we call commented that we got the best sleep that we had had in ages. The hot tub was clean and ready to go when we arrived. I genuinely could not have asked for more. Elena, thanks for hosting us!
Elena's cabin was perfect for our group of 8 over New Year's. The location was exactly what we needed and very convenient for those who wanted to ski Alpine and Squaw. Elena was super responsive and easier to communicate with. We have already talked about wanting to rent this cabin again in the future!
Elena was a great host, communicative from the very start, months prior to our actual stay. When we finally checked in and experienced problems with the hot water in the upstairs bathroom, Elena was very apologetic, and got someone out to repair the problem right away. Also one of the two sinks upstairs had no hot water running at all. We had a few more instances of hot water shortage thereafter, but the problem seemed to be mostly resolved and we were able to enjoy hot showers after skiing all day.
The house was very comfortable, as described, mostly up to date, although the heating system was not great. The upstairs bedrooms (and especially the upstairs bathroom) would get extremely warm and we had to crack the windows a bit, while the mid-level living area was comfortable, and the downstairs "bonus room" was frigid. There are space heaters provided, but only one humidifier, and we felt there should be one in each bedroom. Otherwise the house was well stocked with everything we needed, including shampoo and soap, as well as spices and condiments probably left from previous guests. Lots of pillows, blankets and throws too! The large screen TV was well positioned in the comfie living area for evening enjoyment. The fireplace was great, once we discovered the flu needed to be opened (this was suggested in the owner's notes to us, but since we were offline we couldn't access the notes, we managed to smoke up the house before realizing this!)
Unfortunately the wifi system never stayed connected, we had to constantly connect with an ethernet cord, and if my geek brother hadn't been with us we would have remained offline the entire stay. When I mentioned this to Elena she suggested we turn on/off the router to reset it, but honestly this never worked, and my brother seems to think a new router may be in order.
Location of the house was good, near Squaw and Alpine Meadows, and close to the lake and town center, and easy to find off the main road. There is no garage, but the mud room at the entrance was perfect for keeping boots and helmets warm overnight.
Overall we enjoyed our stay and appreciate the care Elena shows and her commitment to making our stay comfortable.
Elena’s house is an amazing escape, a beautiful house nestled in the quaint little town of Tahoe City. I highly recommend her beautiful rustic cabin. The pictures are extremely accurate and everything worked perfectly. And even though I’m a moron and left my iPad under the bed, Elena was kind enough to FedEx it immediately. Great house. Great Host.
Elena's house was great to stay in, cozy with lots of character. It is conveniently located to sunnyside, shopping and restaurants. Elena is very responsive and a great host, we would be happy to stay at her home again anytime.
We had a wonderful extended weekend in Tahoe with Elena's cabin as our home base. The eight of us (plus a baby) comfortably stayed, going on a couple of hikes in the area and enjoying dinner with a view of the lake and mountains at Wolfdale's and Christie Hill. While the little one was starting to crawl and we didn't need to worry about safety, the cabin was set up with baby gates, toys, a crib, and even a bathtub (although it wasn't littered with obvious baby stuff for those without kids). Outside was beautiful, large pine trees with pine cones scattered around, the option for grilling, hot tubbing and a fire pit. The inside was wonderful too: comfortable beds with fluffy down, good quality towels, and the kitchen was set up so we didn't have anything to worry about for hosting.
Elena's place was really special and we enjoyed our stay there over the Columbus weekend. Lake Tahoe is such a special place. The Cabin is located a couple of miles south from Tahoe city,but not directly on the main road. The place is cosy and we all had our room (6 adults + 2 kids), thanks to the bonus lower level bedroom. Kitchen was awesome, BBQ was useful, the hot tub is a plus, as well as the beautiful fireplace. Would love to come back during winter...
The cabin is truly beautiful and cozy, with all the amenities you could need.
In a very picturesque location, close to the lake with easy access to the town and other gorgeous areas.
Communicating with Elena was so easy and she made the stay very simple for us.
This cabin is great and so are the owners. It really shows with the care of there home! It's in prime location and very kid friendly. Would recommend to anyone.
