A good value
Overall the house was a pleasure to stay in. My girlfriend and I arrived during an unseasonably warm stretch of Tahoe weather, so the first two days was a tad warm in the house as it has no cooling AC (pretty typical for the area). However, there was a fan in the main floor bedroom that helped for sleeping and the bottom floor was much cooler during our stay. Kitchen was well equipped, modern, and had plenty of dishes and silverware for a large group. Wifi was easy to connect to and was reliable the entire stay. The bottom floor game room has a pool table, ping pong table, and Foosball table. Fun! The ping pong table is brand new and the Foosball table was in great shape. The pool table was not of the quality we'd hoped (one of the reasons we selected this property was because it had a pool table). It was a just a little unsturdy (had to be careful when leaning against it, it swayed slightly) and only one of the four cue sticks had a tip on it so we had to share the stick (the owner is going to have the sticks re-tipped after I let him know). That said, we managed to enjoy many, many games during our stay. For families with kids - the game room's board game selection is in disarray - I suggest you bring your own if board games are important. The back deck's seating (chairs) are old and in poor shape - I forgot to mention that to the owner but I hope he replaces them for future guests. The spa was wonderful and soothing after days spent on our feet. The playful birds (jays) on the back deck were a treat to interact with and the mornings were true Tahoe magic. Although I mention some less than positive details, our stay was very enjoyable and the house served well as "home base" for our four-day stay in Tahoe. It is ideally located near town with the peaks nearby for climbing. I would recommend it for anyone, especially families and large groups - the price is right, the lodgings pleasant, and the potential for fun is high. :)
