5 days in almost heaven
Check in after hours was challenging. Made recommendations onsite. Carpet needs thorough cleaning. Sofa sleeper in living room uncomfortable to sit on and covers would benefit from cleaning. Service staff was excellent. Location with easy lake access a plus.

4/10 Fair

Was going to stay five nights but cut my trip short to three nights because the cottage was very dirty and hot. There is no air conditioning and I couldn’t use the fan because the fan was so dirty! Liked the location and the proximity to North Tahoe Regional Park though. The oven didn’t work and the fridge was too cold and froze/ruined some of my food. The carpets were stained.
