The main living area is on the second floor and features high, vaulted ceilings, bright wood paneling, and a private balcony with a gas grill. A hot cup of coffee on the balcony is a great way to start each day while enjoying the home's quiet seclusion in the crisp mountain air.

Your friends will love the natural light cascading in through the living room's large windows while a fire crackles away in the wood-burning fireplace.

The cabin was excellent, simple rustic and clean. The rooms are well lit and the location is perfect, middle, between the Lake Tahoe and downtown truckee. I will be coming back for the comfy atmosphere. Exceeded my expectations with the clean new appliances, laundry and kitchen. Very clean and new.

Everything was amazing about this property except for the parking. Clean, spacious, looked just like the photos, and well-located. Kitchen was well-equipped for cooking for a large group, didn't get too hot - overall an excellent stay.

The parking was definitely an issue though. The listing made note of two permitted spots available but failed to clarify that practically no extra parking exists within 10-15 minutes (by car) of the rental. So, in a situation like my group's in which you have three or four vehicles, parking becomes dicey and you risk being towed if you park onsite.

Again, this is only one part of the experience (the rest wonderful, I must reiterate). But the listing needs to be updated to make the parking constraints clearer for potential customers, or the property owners should issue more permits for such a large-group property.
Manager response:
Hello William, we apologize for the parking issues. Each unit, owners also, are only allotted a certain amount of parking passes. We, VACASA ,do not control this, thank you

Loved the location, elegant amenities. Attention to kids needs with drawers full of activities. Huge TV. Beautiful morning coffee in a sun drenched living room. Just steps from the parking area and lavish northstar resort. Smart mountain decor with state of the art appliances. I had a hard time leaving. We would definitely book again.😁 true tahoe experience.

This house is perfect for winter or summer. Lots of beds and great hang out space. We stayed for 5 nights and have nothing but great things to say about it. Beach gear was plentiful, washer and dryer were great to have, beds were comfortable and kitchen was well stocked. This is a great rental!
