The layout of the home was nice for cooking, socializing, and sleeping. There were a couple of minor things missing or broken but hopefully these will be fixed soon.

Cleaning company was running late but we loved the cabin! Will absolutely rent again. Great location and walking trail 1.2 miles from the shore /garwoods !
Tim P. Jul 2020
Cabin was clean and had all the basics that we needed. One thing as a negative was the key for the hot tub was not found, but otherwise it was a good stay.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Tim. We are glad you enjoyed this cabin and we apologize if the hot tub was unavailable as a precaution to COVID-19. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

We stayed here with 8 people and enjoyed it. The cabin is rustic but functional. We liked the open common space on the top floor and the hot tub on the front deck. The fan didn’t work in one of the downstairs bathrooms and the hot tub had a faint mildew smell. Overall it was solid but not fancy — a 4-star experience.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Matt. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We are happy to report that the fan has been replaced, and the hot tub has been serviced. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

The house has a beautiful scenery. Its well equipped and clean! The beds are comfortable. Having 8 people at the house there was not one issue. Safeway is a quick 5 min drive and its open 24 hours. Having 3 bathrooms with 8 people was amazing. Overall it was a great house!

The house is well reflected by the photos and was a lovely place to spend a few days. The road is quiet and surrounded by trees so does feel like you're in a forest. Vacasa has a 24 hour helpline, which was useful as we had a few issues and questions while we were there. The downside is Vacasa's frugal attitude to their guests. They left us three dishwasher pods and five laundry detergent pods. When I requested more for the dishwasher I was told it was Vacasa's policy to leave supplies for a 2 night stay. We were staying for 5 nights, over Thanksgiving and found it a particularly ungenerous policy. There was a snowstorm when we arrived and the house's snow shovel was missing (later found buried in a pile of snow outside the house) so getting out for more supplies was difficult. The house manual was pretty didactic and threatened extra charges for leaving any dirty dishes in the kitchen, not washing, drying and folding the spa towels before leaving etc. We left late because we had to wait for the towels to dry. I would recommend the house but won't be rushing to book through Vacasa again; it surprises me that they haven't realized that showing thoughtfulness to guests and making their stay convenient would encourage people to book again.
Manager response:
We are pleased you enjoyed your stay, Antonia. We include in the check-in email a list of what essential items are included in the kitchen so that guests may plan accordingly. The comfort and satisfaction of our guests is our number one priority. As always, we Guest Service Agents are available to answer any questions you may have before, during, or after your stay. Thank you again, we hope to host you soon.

We had a lovely stay at the Peaceful Forest Retreat in Carnelian Bay. Nice location with easy access to local area. Clean, well-maintained home with plenty of room for my husband and I and our two grown sons.

Everything was conveniently close! We were able to do everything we wanted!

We loved everything about this stay. The house was super cozy and clean. We used the grill on the balcony to cook dinner. The kitchen had all appliances and dishes. The view from the house was nice. The beds were comfortable. Neighborhood is nice, the kids got to play in the snow and they did not want to leave. I wish we could stay longer. We would definitely recommend this place.
Caitlin J. Jan 2019
Good upstairs space to hang out, eat, play games, and relax. Good sleeping spaces too. Could use more attention to detail, like updated supplies and a clean hot tub.
David Q. Dec 2018
Nice house with all the necessary amenities. Really enjoyed the stay with my friends. Will come back.

We just spent 3 nights in the Peaceful Forest Retreat - 2 couples and our dog. For me, it was like going back to my childhood staying in this cabin. I loved the decor - lots of bear, moose and fish art and the bathroom towel racks had bears and moose - everything was very cabin-like in all the right ways. There are 3 bathrooms that are all functional. You are not staying in a luxury house in Incline Village - you are staying in a very lived-in and very pleasant cabin-like house that is very comfortable that will welcome you and make you feel right at home. The gas-fueled stoves provide a very warm and cozy environment and the hydrostatic heating system in the downstairs provided very constant and comfortable temperature control - set it at 65 and the place was very comfortable when the temps outside got into the 30s. We stayed the week before Thanksgiving and it was not freezing outside yet but this house would certainly be very comfortable with any outside temperature. We LOVED the multi-color pendants hanging from the ceiling in the upstairs main living area - I think I counted 19 of them! It added very nice light and was very colorful and cheerful with dimmers to set them as you like. I was there by myself for the last night as my companions had to leave the day before and I loved being there alone. The kitchen was very well stocked and we made several dinners and grilled on the deck one night. I will definitely go back to the Peaceful Forest Retreat! There was a bit of confusion when the family that owns the house showed up on the last night as I was falling asleep and I really wanted to tell them how much I loved the house and how comfortable it was. I even had the same metal cups from the now defunct Ponderosa Ranch based on the TV Show Bonanza. Everything about this cabin made me feel like I went back in time to a period of my life that was very special.
