“Location, Location and Price”
Reviewed August 17, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

First the good: I don't think you'll find another house with a direct view of the Lake at this price point. We couldn't figure out how the listing showed a direct lake view yet the satellite photo showed the house as being one block off the frontage road. it's a double lot, so totally unobstructed and direct view of the lake, And, the double lot means a huge back yard. There was a big grassy area shaded by tall trees. Enough room to play badminton! While the yard is fenced and the house allows dogs (another plus!) the fence wasn't that secure (a lot of room between slats) so you probably couldn't leave a dog unattended. The house is Old Tahoe. Knotty pine interiors, low ceilings, fairly small rooms. On the up side you don't have to worry about your kids or pets doing any damage to high end décor. The furnishings seem as if someone's great aunt died and everything went to the cabin. Everything is dark - dark wood, dark upholstery, end tables everywhere for no reason. Just makes the living room seem dark and crowded. The mattresses in the downstairs bedroom were pretty bad. One was just old and not that great but the other one is completely shot. The mattress pads were made of something that made it feel like you were sleeping on a rubber sheet. All of the appliances are old. Every time you slid out the bottom rack of the dishwasher it made a loud clanging sound like it's missing a part. The fridge and stove were vintage too, and not in a good way. If cooking is a big part of your vacation experience you should consider packing the things you just can't live without. A charcoal grill outside, but a pair of long handled tongs the only bbq tools. Most of the pots and pans were thrift store quality. No crockpot, no pitcher to make drinks, ancient can opener almost unusable (we meant to buy a new one and leave it there but forgot). The house is really cute, the location is great, the view is remarkable and while I'm sure the unfussiness of the house is reflected in the price, it wouldn't take too much too upgrade things just a bit. A quick trip to Kmart or Target and the kitchen supplies could be upgraded immensely, and a couple of mattresses would make a huge difference. It's probably good to know that the bedrooms are small. Upstairs is a bedroom with a double and two twins, and next door two twins. They share a teeny tiny bathroom. Downstairs is a bedroom with two doubles. So, when the house says it sleeps 10 that is technically true but it would be pretty tight. This is a great house for a family or small group of friends but definitely not for large groups.
