“Drive right by this place”
Reviewed 1 September 2011

They called this "rustic", that's a design term. This place was "old",incredible out dated. The furniture was uncomfortable, the room arrangement just did not work, the toilet didn't flush without holding down the handle, some of the lights worked, and some did not. Now,we are an older couple, the loft containing the bed had a drop down ladder that HAD to be lifted up when sleeping or you would take one step out of bed and find yourself on the ground floor via the hole for the retractable ladder. You think this would be worth mentioning when booking to see if people are comfortable with this. We were not slept in a pull out sofa on the ground floor that was not fit for human comfort. So keep driving, keep searching the net for a more comfortable environment. Oh yea, nice pool not heated, temp drops to 38 degrees at night, no swimmers in this pool.

When we arrived there were a couple of ants on the floor. We vacuumed them up. They multiplied. We vacuumed the entire place, removed the hall way runner carpet and found a bunch. Vacuumed more. We could not walk around without shoes. We called the management and they came the next day and let off bug bombs in our cabin. This meant having to pack up our food and stuff and get out of the place for a couple of hours. When we returned, the windows were open, bug spray cans scattered around and you guessed it, many ants crawling on the floor....alive.

Not my idea of a good vacation.

We won't be back.

About the town of Tahoma. We aren't outdoorsy people, so Tahoma is not a good location for us. If you're into hiking and stuff, you'll like the location. If you want shopping and dining, book something in South Shore.

Natalia is great! We booked ahead and had the whole resort to ourselves (8 cabins). Many
options to suit all our different families. Just like we each had our own house, but yet right together for 3 days. Lots of beauty and funs things to do in the area.

Definitely south of expected. We had one of the smaller cabins, so I can only speak to that. My wife stayed in the downstairs bed, which turned out to be a well worn fold-out double (not big enough for two adults). I had to climb a near vertical ladder to reach the "loft," which was nothing more than another double mattress on the floor and no room for anything else but a pint-sized table lamp that also was on the floor next to the mattress. In reality, this was nothing more than a crawl space with a mattress in it, and an A-frame ceiling above your head that couldn't have been more than 3-feet above the mattress. I might as well have been in a pup tent. Of course, if you like changing your clothes while laying flat on your back, and clambering down a ladder in the dark of night to use the bathroom, it's fine!!

Room Tip: Get a hotel room in Tahoe City instead.

This cozy place is located very near Homewood ski area and a well stocked grocery. The cabin we rented (Jeffery duplex) had an excellent kitchen, with a nice dining area. The living area was comfortable and had a TV which we did not use. We did avail ourselves of the free WiFi which was much appreciated as we had three laptops for five people. The place was very clean and odor free, and the single bathroom was stocked with soap, shampoo, tissues, and plenty of towels. The manager, Natalia, was very pleasant and accommodating.

We loved this place!!! Nestled in the trees, it has a rustic feel, but they have everything you could need at hand. Any kitchen gadget I needed was in there, and they even have a cute outdoor picnic table and bbq pit at each cabin. We loved using the hot tub and pool, and we were close to everything . Great time!!!
