This house is located in a quieter neighborhood of South Lake Tahoe and it is good for up to 7 people. It has two nice balconies and a good size kitchen. The master bedroom is great, the kids room also good but the 3rd bedroom with a queen bed is kind of small and a bit dark. I recommend it for a single family with children but not two couples with kids

This was actually our second choice when looking for a vacation property, but the other didn't have our dates. Well to our wonderful surprise, this is now our first choice for property. It is clean, nice neighborhood, updated, fully stocked with anything you would need. The fire pit on the deck was so nice on a cool summer evening and the new couch is very comfortable and several naps were taken on it during the week! 2 other items that I don't consider a reason to change the good rating - the master bedroom bed is VERY high. I learned a not very graceful way of getting on the bed, and once on it, it was very comfortable The other is the shower in the master bedroom is very weak. I get the reason as I also live in CA and know water conservation, but it took awhile to rinse out my hair. The only thing that I put a 4 instead of a 5 is that I don't like having to drive somewhere to check in, but it was pretty close by. I will look forward in the future to renting this property again. Thank you for allowing us to stay at your property!

It was a very spacious place and nearby a lot of things to do. Also, a very comfortable place to stay

This home well designed, updates and was far away from the Y and state line to be quiet but close enough to enjoy it.

Internet was quick and communication was quicker. We couldn’t be happier with the service and amenities!

Cozy cabin home. Big enough for large family.

We rented this particular home because of its location away from the bustle closer to Lake Tahoe proper. It was easy to get to the magnificent fall color in Hope Valley from here. The home was spacious & quiet. Be aware that the master bedroom bed requires some climbing skill as it is very tall! The master bath has been nicely updated. But the kitchen needs better lighting for evening cooking.

The rest was unforgettable! Good for family holidays, or for relaxing with friends. I would definitely like to come back here again!

Very clean nice place.

We enjoyed our week’s stay at the Lazy Bear Retreat! The decor is done so well and makes it feel very cozy and homey. We felt things were clean, tidy, and well organized. The back deck with the twinkling lights and gas fireplace were my favorite! Great place for a glass of wine and card games with family! The place could use a little maintenance attention, but nothing that hindered our stay. We rent a different cabin almost every year and overall this place was great! Very cute!

Loved this place. Only thing is it was HOT and no AC. You cant even leave the windows open at night to let the house cool down for fear of bears breaking in. That is what I was told by the rental agency. So we slept in 85 degree weather. Other than that. It was not far from stateline and lake tahoe. Maybe 20 minutes.
Manager response:
We are sorry to see this guest was uncomfortable due to mother nature. Guests can leave the bedroom windows open for a cool breeze since they are on the second level. We also provide fans during higher heat days. Thanks!

It is a very nice house in a quite neighborhood, very cozy and well decorated. However it needs a few improvements in the maintenance.
