Convenient, clean, everything was easy to use and the kids had a great time. Kids love the tv and fireplace and hot tub! I wish it was more updated but overall it was a great place

The house is very nice, very well positioned, just a couple of details but in general very good

We loved the fire place. The beds were super comfortable. The hot tub was a plus. We loved our stay

House was perfect for our stay in Tahoe. The layout was great and it was closer to town than we expected. For parents out there, a review from a few years ago mentions questionable decor and we made sure that this had all been removed before our stay as the house has new ownership and it's very kid friendly.

Loved the carpets and bean bag chairs. Great place for a family to stay!

Overall, the house was nice. We loved the fireplace and the foosball table. However, there were a few really important things missing.

We were in Tahoe during March Madness... and there was no TV reception. Tried going through the roku to try through sling but that didn't work. And no reception on local channels. To say we were bummed out is an understatement.

Also, the two video arcade games that are prominently displayed in the photos of the unit do not work. We plugged them both in but neither is functional. That was a disappointment since based on the photos, these were selling points.

I suggest you clearly mention that the arcade games are for decorative purposes only and are not functional. Especially since they are prominently featured in the photos AND the sub-title of the unit is: "A private hot tub & arcade game room." Also, it would have been nice to know that there was no TV reception, especially during March Madness or during other pivotal times like the SuperBowl.
Manager response:
We apologize for the disappointments this guest experienced when it came to entertainment. The listing will soon be updated to reflect the games are decorative and operate infrequently, and it will be made clear there is no cable TV available. Thank you!

We stayed for a long weekend to get some snow time for the kids, but we wound up spending the entire time indoors due to them getting the 24hr flu that was going around.

What was really good:
The property was great for kids - the kids loved the bunk beds, and the king & queen beds worked well. The house stayed warm, and the circular fireplace is fantastic. I really liked how the house was laid out. There were also a lot of toys for the kids to play with, and they loved romping on the giant beanbags.
Make sure you come prepared for technology - we hooked up to the home's wireless and used the sonos via our phones. The roku remote was kind of busted, so we had to operate it via the phone app as well, but were able to get Netflix shows for keeping the kids entertained. So, for ease of use, make sure you have both apps downloaded to your phone/tablet before arriving.
The hottub was AMAZING and well situated on the deck between the two master bedrooms.

What could have been better:
I was a little bummed that the arcade games weren't working - it looks like they'd crashed, maybe check before reserving. Also the front left burner on the stove wasn't working, so we had to get a little creative with the stovetop cooking.

Overall I'm definitely keeping this place on the short list for when we come back to Tahoe.

We had a pleasant stay. Thanks

We loved staying at the house. Our nights consisted of gathering around the fireplace, playing the games, and talking, drinking wine.

We were a group of two couples and 3 single adults and the bedroom set up worked well for us. We found it easy to coordinate using the 2 bathrooms among the 7 of us. Overall we had a great time and would definitely stay again.

There was a lot of entertainment for us to use at the house. In the grand scheme of things, the house did not matter that much to us as we were in Tahoe so we were outside as much as we could be. Would really recommend Mt. Tallac hike.

Overall the home was a little bit dirty, but we weren't expecting it to be the cleanest place in the world. It had a lot of entertainment upstairs and was well worth the price tag. I have to be honest, the decor was a little weird with a lot of Stephen King novels lying around, a full dragon costume in a closet, and a nude skiing art piece. Other than that, it was great.

We really enjoyed ourselves at Mountain Peak Chalet. It was very homey. We enjoyed playing fooseball, the other games available, books to read, Roku on the TV, the hot tub and the cozy indoor firepit. In addition to enjoying the home, we were close to the marina, casinos at Stateline and the beauty of Lake Tahoe.

We had a wonderful time at our stay at this cabin.. Everything was clean and neat and everything else that we had hoped for and some more. Made some wonderful memories and will definitely return and recommend to our family and friends.
The only thing I did not like (minor) is the trim on the stair - it was broke and it poked my foot.
Daniel L. Mar 2014
The property was very,very clean. Access to Heavenly was literally 3 min away - first in line every morning! Great electronics in the house particularly the sound system!!

The cabin itself is amazing. I like the interior and decor. The cabin definitely has a character. Rooms were not massively big like perceive on the picture but it enough for us. The selling point was the Fireplace in the middle because of it's uniqueness. The bean bags are adorable, that's where we pretty much lounge every night. I would have like for a bigger TV that is stationed on the wall rather than 32 inch tv hidden on the cabinet that you need to bring out if you want to use it. (management, hint hint). We didn't get to enjoy the Sonos Surround system since you have to download app on your phone and all that crazy steps. Besides, who would want to play the surround system while there is no noise after 10:00pm? Hot tub was one of my requirements for the cabin, It wasn't a huge disappointment since it's a nice brand new 7 sitter one, I was disappointed on the fact that it wasn't positioned for an easy access. it is very obvious that the tub was just added recently. It looks like a mini deck was built only for the size of the tub itself and no room to walk around it whatsoever. We had trouble with the lock, but somebody was able to help us. Dishwasher wasn't working as well. These have been address to the management so hopefully, future renters would not have any of these problems.

Other than that, our stay to this cabin was everything we have hope for. Only if it snowed more that weekend, that would have been perfect. :)
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your review and feedback regarding your recent stay with us. We are happy that you enjoyed the home and had an overall positive experience. Thank you for letting us know about the dishwasher. We are having that fixed as we speak thanks to your feedback! In terms of the hot tub, we feel this new addition to the home offers an even better guest experience for our future guests. We are sorry the layout did not meet your expectations but we think its a great addition and looks great.

This place is by far one of the best places we have stayed, we go to tahoe every year for vacation and the location, was close to everything such as casinos, shopping and the lake.
Tim S. Aug 2013
We had a great time lounging on the bean bags and making smores indoors with the fire pit. The place had all the right amenties and details well thought out. From beach chairs and towels to a good assortment of spices to a decent sound system for music controlled from your smart phone. Wish we could have stayed for longer.

What a wonderful house! It was the perfect balance of "house" and "cabin" with pretty views out the back and a quiet neighborhood. House had so much to offer! Great kitchen with basically all the necessary tools and equipment for cooking meals, loads of reading material, and a huge movie library. The kids LOVED the giant bean bags! And in addition to being comfortable, it was very nicely decorated! I felt at home the minute we got there! Thank you for a great few days! We'd definitely recommend to friends!
