Graig S. Nov 2018
Great location and a nice home
Elaine A. Oct 2018
the place was clean and the beds comfortable.
Jim B. Oct 2018
My husband and I absolutely loved this house, while there was only the two of us this house could easily accommodate 6 people without feeling cramped!!!! Would definitely recommend this house for the space and location. Holly
Morgan A. Oct 2018
Super cute and clean! Would definitely stay here again!
Hugo M. Sep 2018
Love the kitchen with everything ready for cooking and stores near us
sandra o. Sep 2018
very convenient location, clean, great hot tub, best suited for small groups of 3 or 4 people.
Scott P. Jun 2018
Great floor plan, single-story cabin, near to everything. Perfect with our two Newfoundland Dogs.

Everything was updated, bathrooms really nice, kitchen very functional, televisions easy to use. Overall great house!

Only improvement I would suggest is one of the mattresses in the guest bedroom was rock-hard. I think it may have been a boxspring not a mattress. This could be changed out. Otherwise everything was perfect. Thank you so much
Sarah R. Jun 2018
We had a wonderful stay, the house was super clean and showed as pictured. The kitchen completely stocked with cookware. Plenty of towels for the AWESOME hot tub!! The location is fantastic close to all activities. Enjoy!
Edgar O. Jun 2018
The location is great due to being very close to Safeway and to the State line. I stayed with 3 other people, plenty of space.
We enjoyed the hot tub as well as BBQ'd some meat from a near by store called Mi Pueblo. I would love to rent this house out again, we all had an amazing time. Very clean and spacious.
Margarita G. Apr 2018
Love it very good place for a family vacation and loved that I was able to bring my dog along.
Bernadette B. Apr 2018
Nice open floor plan, close to everything and great spa. Really enjoyed our stay.
jeanne l. Mar 2018
This house was perfect for our family. The openness of the main area was perfect. We could all hang out no matter what we were doing. The fenced in yard was the perfect size for our kids and our dog.
Stephanie V. Mar 2018
Love the location and the general cabin feeling with the decor and furniture. Did not love checking in to the home after we were told it was clean when it was not. The basic amenities are too few given how much people pay to stay here per night. Not the best impression and might be a second option for me when visiting South Lake Tahoe unless improvements are made.
Linh T. Jan 2018
Such a cute place! 2 bedrooms was the perfect size for us! Centrally located, 5 minutes from the grocery stores, casinos, heavenly resort, etc. Great and responsive staff! We will visit again soon!
Sarah R. Jan 2018
This house was very cozy and close to Heavenly and Stateline. We loved the gas fireplace, WiFi and being able to cook. The kids loved the hot tub. It was brand new with awesome jets and rainbow lights.
Krista K. Jan 2018
The home was clean and the remodel and upgrades were very nice. There is a hot tub in the back yard and a nice deck to sit out on. The only thing I didn't like was the lack of privacy from the neighbors surrounding the house. But I would recommend the house because it's spacious and charming and the neighborhood is really nice and quiet.
Also there is only room for two cars and you need to park a block away with any extra cars or you'll be fined $1000 . So if you need to unload an extra car then keep your car running while you do it and no visiting until you go and park and come back. So be aware of that and you'll be okay.
Christi B. Nov 2017
I loved this house. It was plenty of room for our party of five adults. The kitchen and dining room were perfect and had all the amenities. Having the washer and dryer there is a great feature. I would definently stay here again!
Mike W. Oct 2017
All in all a great property. Great for couples or small groups. Need to fix the hot tub or advertise that it's not working. The BBQ grill is charcoal, but the house didn't provide a lighter... I didn't see a fire extinguisher, either. Most vacation houses I've stayed at typically provide a few kitchen items like sugar or sweetener for coffee, cooking basics like spices, etc. This place was cleaned out bare. With a few upgrades, this could be a 5-star property.
Manager Response:
The property manager has picked up supplies to restock the house, the hot tub is being replaced mid-November, and the BBQ is being removed entirely as it is a fire hazard. We are sorry to see these were issues during this reservation.
Abby B. Oct 2017
If you are traveling in a group or with a dog this is a great location. Lots of room for people and a fence for the dog.
Srikrishna K. Jul 2017
Its a decent accommodation if you have a large group (6+). The cabin itself is pretty basic and I have stayed in better cabins before, esp for the price. But its clean, has all the basic amenities and is more than sufficient as a place to stay for a few days if you are mostly out and around town. Its ~ 25 min walk from the cabin to S. Lake Tahoe Blvd and it was pretty easy to get Uber. The internet was finicky and kept dropping quite often. Also the cabin gets quite hot during summer and the only cooling options are the ceiling fans which are not too effective, so plan accordingly. Overall I would rate it as a decent functional accommodation.
Linda K. Jun 2017
Aside from the jacuzzi not operating during our stay, It is a great location close to town. Not far from the casinos if your there that kind of entertainment... not far from the marina which was awesome! Overall, the location is great and close to alot of things..
Erika F. Jun 2017
We literally enjoyed our stay at the house very much. Everything is so close by market, to the lake going up to the mountains for a nice hike.
Megan M. Apr 2017
House had a great layout! We had a blast
Kristin K. Feb 2017
This cabin is warm and cozy with an open lay out that makes it feel bigger than it is. The home can sleep lots of people with two roll-away beds, three queen beds and a youth bed. The showers were great and the washer and dryer are a must when sledding or skiing during the stay! Don't forget some laundry soap! We loved that it was dog friendly and hope the owners will keep it this way. Thanks for a great stay!
Friday J. Feb 2017
It took us a while to find The right rental this is actually our first time to rent a cabin at Lake Tahoe and this property did not disappoint us . It has everything we needed from pots to plates. Fully equipped no hassle and the property is so clean. There are two extra foldaway bed which is very convenient and comfortable we don't need to squeeze in ourselves in one bed.
Scott W. Jan 2017
Really enjoyed our fun-filled stay here, but there was a few items to tend to. First, the kitchen was not equipped well. There was far too few dishes and silverware. Also didn't have even pepper to season food with. Knives, as usual, were dull as could be. Could have used a spatula, too! On the good side the hot tub was really hot!! Made my wife real happy. Location is close to lots of restaurants, casinos, and skiing! Street was a bit busy for having kids and a dog with us.
Manager Response:
The owner took inventory in the kitchen and replaced or stocked several items.
CHRISTOPHER B. Jan 2017
This property was perfect for my self and my wife and 6 kids. absolutely the best possible scenario..it was extremely snowy but everything is close grocery stores, sledding and casinos all less then 5 minutes away perfect trip... thank you
Joseph D. Dec 2016
Nicely updated place. Good location from where to go skiing, although in a so, so neighborhood. Il Fiore restaurant, right around the corner, was a fun little place to go eat at night.
Dominique W. Dec 2016
Great house
Kenny L. Dec 2016
The house was a good place to stay for our trip but I was disappointed with how dirty the inside of the cabin was. Too much animal hair everywhere, even on the bed covers, blankets, and pillows. The couches along with the carpets by the dining tables all had the animal hairs which just made it seem very dirty and not cleaned properly before our arrival.
Manager Response:
We apologize that housekeeping wasn't more mindful of the pet hair in the home; had we been notified we would have sent housekeeping back to the home to rectify the problem.
Summer S. Nov 2016
This is the second time we've stayed at this property. We love it so much. Check in is very easy and convenient and the property is very clean. The location is perfect and my kids love all the games and puzzles provided. We will continue to stay here!
Wendy L. Nov 2016
We loved the location of the property as it was a quite and serene area yet accessible to the casinos and tourist attractions. The home was very comfortable, clean and very well kept. It had all the amenities I needed for this trip. I would stay here again!
Chris B. Oct 2016
I will be returning soon. It was the perfect house, perfect location, very clean and very welcoming.
Elaine V. Sep 2016
I loved the natural wood throughout the house. Very cozy house. We had a great time
Charles P. Aug 2016
Great location, nice and comfortable home.
Mo N. Aug 2016
The home is a great location, walking to the marina lake (10 min), casinos (20 min), shops (5 to 15min) and restaurants (5 min) . We came to Tahoe to enjoy the beach, shops, and casinos. We enjoyed our 3 nights stay! The interior of property is well decorated. My 3 kids loved the hot tub and spent time in it almost every evening. The house was clean and comfortable and I would definitely recommend it to others. It is close to everything in South Lake Tahoe as well.
John F. Aug 2016
We found the house to be clean inside and comfortable. The neighborhood leaves something to be desired, but was close to two fine restaurants and a bike rental shop. There was quite a bit of noise each night from the properties adjoining the back fence. We speculated hot-tub parties.
Kristen W. Aug 2016
Great property, very clean and cozy for two couples. Walkable to some restaurants and the lake. Highly recommend staying here for a convenient get away!
Vicki R. Jun 2016
I was looking for a handicapped accessible house and this one was very close to perfect especially for a house in the mountains. Only one or two steps to get inside and the house itself is one level. Very doable if you are traveling with an elderly person, as I was. This house has everything you'd want and it's very close to Heavenly and walking distance from the lake.
Michelle G. Jun 2016
Nice house, good location, and we got to bring our dog. Be sure to bring spices and a cutting board.
Karen P. Jun 2016
The house was great. Everything was clean and in order when we arrived. It was nice that they had so many utensils, plates and cups. The house has great insulation as we were up having fun at night and when I stepped outside to check the noise level it could barely be heard. They have some serious hot water at the house so don't worry about running out. The beds were comfortable and we loved that there were endless towels so that we could have towels for the hot tub too. I appreciated the detailed email with all need information prior to arrival. When you do get to the house just know that it is located with an apartment complex to one side and another one directly in the backyard. At first we thought it was a little strange, but we got over it. Also it looks like they recently re-did the fence which is nice, but they still need to finish the side gate so that it would be secure so your dog(s) wouldn't get out. Lastly it would have been nice to have been given the PIN for the TV as we couldn't watch anything that was over PG 13 which was frustrating because Game of Thrones was on. But all and all it was a great experience and I would defiantly stay there again.
Donna H. Apr 2016
What a great little place, close to everything but quiet enough to not know!
Becky L. Apr 2016
Nice home close to lots of things to do!
Tania S. Mar 2016
We stayed for 2 nights. The house is perfect for a family of four (2 bedrooms), but could easily sleep 6 or 8 (there are rollaway beds). It has everything you need (except salt and pepper and spices - so bring all foods necessary for cooking), including a BBQ, hot tub and laundry. Kitchen is updated and the great room is perfect for hanging out together. Two very nice bathrooms. The house is in a nice, quiet neighborhood.
5 minute drive from the Heavenly ski area, and downtown South Lake Tahoe.
Really great stay - thank you!
Peter V. Mar 2016
Plenty of space and generally comfortable. Great for 4 people. Close to Heavenly and central shopping.
Zale J. Mar 2016
overall I like the house and location.

I was so excited to go here for Valentine's weekend and celebrate my boyfriend's birthday with our friends, but I can't even explain the anger and disappointment I felt when I got there and saw all of the trash all over the place. There were old plates in the front yard along with cardboard boxes, old oil canisters, a hat, and a USED SYRINGE (hypodermic needle). On the side yard there was just a huge pile of garbage which included socks and birthday candles and misc other items. The backyard had dog poop all over it, with, wait for it, MORE TRASH. We weren't able to use the hot tub the first night because the maintenance guy thought it was a good idea to change out all of the water minutes before we got there. The shower curtains had mold in them and trash was shoved into night stands and drawers everywhere. I seriously cannot even explain how much garbage was all over the place. The only thing that saved the trip was the fact I was surrounded by good people. I contacted Vacasa the first night I was there and nobody contacted me back. I just feel so disappointed that I wasted my money here when I could have gone somewhere much nicer. I will not return nor will I recommend this house.
Manager Response:
Thank you for sharing your review. We are terribly sorry to hear that the home had trash around it and we have let our property manager know about it. They will work with our housekeeping staff to ensure that the home is totally ready, inside and out, for our guests going forward. Thank you again for choosing Vacasa.
Regina S. Jan 2016
We had a lot of fun here! Loved the open concept living room, kitchen and dining. The kids had plenty of room to run around inside as well as outside and play in the snow! The home was clean and had big comfy couches to rest on. A washer and dryer made packing a breeze. The heater worked well, and the gas fireplace was nice in the cold evenings. Our only recommendations would be to get a bigger TV for the place. The television was way to small for such a big room! And keep ice off the porch so we can get to the hot tub. I had a slip and it hurt! Ouch! Other than that we had a great stay and plan on returning soon!
Joan D. Jan 2016
Great location, short distance to shopping and activities
Alon M. Dec 2015
Cabin was dirty with dogs hair. It is also not maintained well as we had serious electrical and heating issues during our stay (on a 9 degrees night!)
Manager Response:
Thank you for taking the time to share your review. Housekeeping will be more careful with vacuuming pet hair in the future, and we have taken care of the heating issues so our guests can be comfortable during the winter. We hope you got to enjoy the hot tub and had a wonderful time in the area!
Robert E. Dec 2015
What a relaxing time! Everything you could need to be comfortable, a fireplace and hot tub both in good condition and user-friendly. Open-layout for the kitchen and living room, which was great for hanging out and provided enough space for an energetic toddler to move around in. Plenty of clean glassware and plates for 4 people.
Mark K. Oct 2015
Spending the weekend to celebrate a 40th birthday at this home was terrific! The property was extremely clean, spacious, and close to the state line. I brought my outrigger canoe (23 ft long) with concerns on weather and storage. Tamarack home was spacious enough to store canoe in the dining/living room, and not be in the way! Unfortunately, the weather was cold and rainy, but still got to use it. Hot tub was perfect for the cool weather, and home was nicely furnished for cooking. When I come back to South Shore, I will be sure to look this up again!
Manager Response:
Thanks for sharing your review and happy belated birthday! We hope you are back for your 41st and many more!
Jana E. Oct 2015
I rented this house for a birthday surprise for my boyfriend. We stayed here with our family, and our 4 dogs. We have family that lives in Southlake so only 4 of us stayed in the house. My favorite part was the woodwork throughout the house and the open living/kitchen,dining area. The house has a ton of open space for everyone to hang out together. The yard wasn't fully fenced for our dogs but they are all trained so we had no issues, and it is only open in the front when you walk to the door. Check in and check out was amazingly easy compared to some vacation rentals I have stayed in. They have tons of games and kitchenware. Overall we had a great time and the house was in good condition.
Leslie C. Jul 2015
My family enjoyed our stay at this comfortable home! They had everything we could have needed and more!
Elizabeth K. Dec 2014
This property is at an ideal location with all the amenities you could possibly ask for. We were a party of 6, comprised of a mixture of children, teenagers, and adults. We all had an incredibly good time without stepping on each other's toes (which is almost impossible in our family). Dad was happy watching the game on the cable TV, the kids played board games that were available at the property, all while a great dinner was cooking in the spacious kitchen. Add some hot tub action after a long day of snow filled fun (only minutes from the lodges of Heavenly), the trip was virtually perfect. We had more than enough space without even using the extra beds or couches. There are plenty to do within minutes of the property. We had a complete mixture of snowboarders, skiers, "let's just shop", and "I want to look at nature" personalities, and everyone was happy. Vacasa was easy to use, instructions were clear, and the property clean as can be. We would do this trip again any day!
Caleb S. Nov 2014
The house was beautiful and stocked with everything we needed and more! Plenty of clean towels, dishes, and everything else we needed. We will definitely be staying here when the snow comes. Thank you Vacasa for making our weekend getaway perfect!
Noah B. Nov 2014
Great little home in a great location only about .5 miles to the lake and restaurants. Also good restaurants just around the corner. 5 minute drive to casinos. Only negative is backyard due to the fact there are 2 apartment bulidings behind but no noise really so not a big deal.
