We were very impressed with the lake view and access (walk across the street). This was a family vacation with kids ranging in ages 1-18. This house met all of our needs and will recommend it to our friends. Corie G
This house was extremely comfortable for the seven guests who helped me celebrate my 80th birthday. They raved about the view of the lake, the well-stocked kitchen, and easy access to the beach and shopping. Mary and Bill, the owners, were a joy to work with and we appreciated access to a home that was clean and well maintained, as well as the prompt replies and timely return of my deposit.

We have an annual trip planned to tahoe every January with close friends. We normally stay at South Shore, no real reason why. This time while planning our trip we came across Bill and Mary's place and decided to give it a try. It was immediate love and in fact we had only been there 15 minutes when our friends say "we are coming back next year" and we readily agreed!!Everything about the house was perfect. It was roomy, the location was perfect, the decor was homey, the great room was truly a great room and the kitchen big enough for 4 adults and two big dogs to be in there at the same time. Everything you could need for the weekend was there, including discs to sled on, crates for the dogs two areas for sitting, a HUGE comfy couch in front of a HUGE TV.Bill and Mary were extremely friendly and easy to work with, we will definitely be back =))

We LOVE this house! Our family has stayed here two years in a row and we are looking forward to coming back every year! The location of this house is perfect -- it is close to everything! The beach is across the street (the views are AMAZING!), the dog beach is just a short stroll down the road, restaurants and shopping are just a quick drive away, and hiking and skiing are just beyond that. Also, the house itself is perfect -- clean, well-maintained, and filled with everything you could want or need for your Lake Tahoe getaway! (I don't think the photos do the place justice.) The well-stocked kitchen gives you the choice of to staying "home" and cooking a gourmet meal ... or you can get take out and enjoy it looking at the beautiful view of Lake Tahoe (from the decks AND the inside dining area)! And, it doesn't get much better than relaxing in the hot tub while looking at the Lake. Lastly, sometimes I have read this house described as a "guesthouse" -- don't let that fool you! This house had more than enough room for all of us (2 adults, 2 kids, and 2 large dogs); in fact, we could invite my parents and/or in-laws to stay with us, if we wanted (actually, maybe we will invite Bill and Mary -- they are the nicest, most helpful owners you could ask for).

I booked this house for a family reunion of 18 people. It was great. The home itself is lovely, great view of the lake, nice deck with hot tub and seating area, well stocked kitchen and space for everyone. The property that the house sits on is amazing. There is a huge grass lawn where we played volleyball (brought our own equipment), horse shoes (available there) and hung out. It is a short walk to Burnt Cedar beach, so we never got in our car the five days we were there. We had some questions for the owner while we were there and he responded immediately to all calls. I'd recommend this home for any large groups. Donna
The house is exquisitely decorated with plenty of room to relax, inside and outside. The view from the deck of Lake Tahoe, while slightly obstructed by incredibly beautiful trees - is so wonderful. Same wonderful view from the breakfast nook. Love the kitchen - highly functional for large families who all want to help cook and do dishes. Relaxing in the hot tub while enjoying the view takes away any life stressor - and with a glass of wine - there is no better way to spend an evening! Bill & Mary were gracious hosts - meeting us at the house upon our arrival, explaining how things worked, offering advice for things to do & see and making us feel very welcome. The beds were all comfy and nicely decorated. Only very minor issues - blinds in one bedroom wouldn't stay open, batteries in TV remotes & smoke detectors needed to be replaced. I highly recommend the house, the area and Bill & Mary. I hope to come back again some day. Donna C.
