Crazy owner
This house is quirky and different with a beautiful yard. It's a little outdated and off the beaten path, but a one of a kind location. I read the reviews and thought it was perfect for what I was looking for to have a dinner party with my parents and in laws, as well as a place for my parents to stay. I spoke with Rosemarie several times asking if I could host a small party here. I was very upfront with the number of guests and my expectations. I am a local in the Tahoe area and live in a popular rental neighborhood so I was super upfront with what I was looking to do. As a local, it was important for me to be honest and respectful to neighbors in the area. The house was nice enough, but there was lots of cigarette butts outside and some things were broken and in badly in need of updating. The table outside is pretty clunky surrounded by old school chairs that have been very used and weathered. No worries though, the views make up for it. We brought in our own tables and chairs, and had a great little party. We obliged by the seemingly arbitrary 9pm sound ordinance, and went on with our weekend. Monday morning I stopped by the house to help my sister in law pack up (she was stuck there trying to do laundry, but the dryer was broken and not drying her clothes) and Rosemarie showed up. She was very very upset, and yelling at my husband that we had moved the patio table. We quickly apologized and moved it back to exactly how she wanted it as well as did a sweep of the house to make sure it was left clean. She kept yelling at us, scaring my niece and nephews, that we had a party and that was against the rules. I explained that she had approved it months prior, and that I had the emails, but she insisted she would "catch" us and keep our deposit. Even though I provided her with all the emails where she approved the small dinner party, she still kept the deposit. She has since changed her story 3 times as to why she has kept it, ranging from we had "too much garbage" to "too many cars parked in the driveway" to her latest, which is now that the kids "damaged her carpet". We asked for photos of the damage and she proceeded to send us a contract for the guests the week before us (she also kept their deposit) which made no sense. No photos were ever provided. The house was pretty but not worth the hassle of Rosemarie. I would not recommend.
