Emily L. Our overall experience in Lake Tahoe was fantastic. First the good. The location of this home is great and although it was not specific to where beach access was, we asked a neighbor and found our little beach. Close, convenient and perfect for sunsets. The location makes it great to head to Kings Beach or Tahoe City or find a trail to hike.The home was comfortable but now the bad part. I rented a 3 bedroom home so my daughters could be comfortable. We never used the one bedroom because the smell from the vent in that room was offensive. We did call and report the issue and honestly, it smelled worse after the HVAC men came over. It got worse at night so no one could sleep in that room. It truly was awful. I specifically rented a 3 bedroom home and could only use 2 of them. Response to my issue took us to day 3, but it never was fixed. Great communication with the rental company was appreciated but the home itself is not one I will rent again because that vent odor makes that 3rd room useless to me and my wallet. Again, location was perfect, great communication with Turnkey, but that odor has got to go.

Janice L. I initially thought that the cabin will be tight for 7 people since it only has 1.5 bath but it ended being perfect with a few of us out of the house for wanderlust. The beds are comfortable and farm table/grill is perfect for some home cooking. I would definitely rebook. The open concept kitchen area definitely helps to free up living space for the group to hang out.

Shannon K. Upon arriving, we noticed that the fireplace was out of service. It was too cold to hang out together in the common area, even with the heat on. The upstairs did not have cable. The beds were extremely hard. There were hairs in two of the three beds. It was well-stocked and it was nice to have three bedrooms, but I wouldn’t stay here again.

This cabin is in a great location for North Lake Tahoe. The property was very clean and had all the necessities: cooking supplies, towels, coffee, toiletries, etc.
The Pros: Location, charming and cozy. Had everything we needed to cook. We really had a great time here. Close to ski resorts, Truckee, and restaurants.
The cons: The main thing was the beds were extremely uncomfortable. We all woke up every morning with hurt backs and couldn't sleep through the night. We were a family of 4 adults and felt that the space was just right for the 4 of us, but any more members it would have been way too small. The upstairs bathroom door was off of the hinges so you couldn't close it and there is only one shower, which is really small. There isn't a TV in the bottom bedroom and the upstairs TV's didn't have the main cable.
Check in time was 3pm and check out time was 10 am. We couldn't get in any earlier or check out any later.

If the mattresses were more comfortable, I would certainly recommend this to a small family.
