DESCRIPTION: Boulder Shores is your perfect Lakefront vacation spot. Located just off State Route 28 near Crystal Bay, the home is situated in a private, secluded, gated neighborhood of only eight custom homes. Guests enjoy unbelievable, panoramic lake views of North Lake Tahoe all the way down to the South Shore. There is easy boating access with a deep-water dock and owner-buoy to moor your boat. After a day on the lake, there is ample room for everyone in the updated kitchen with granite counters and a large central cooking island with 5 bar stools. The large table in the dining room will seat 12 or more people. The kitchen offers anything... a gourmet chef could need to create a memorable feast. It is perhaps the best-stocked kitchen we have on our program. This charming Lakefront home has many upgrades throughout, creating a peaceful, serene and fabulously fun retreat. From the rear deck, you will be impressed by the massive granite boulders going down to the lake, hence the property name - Boulder Shores. Although there is no sandy beach, there is a short, private winding walkway leading to the large community dock and pier where guests can sunbathe and fish off the deck, jump into the lake from the long jetties or simply relax while enjoying a spectacular sunset. You will also find a secluded swim deck nestled in the boulders for private sunbathing or quiet moments. Swimming in the lake is refreshing in July through September; however, bring your wetsuits if you tend to get cold. For more privacy, the home's main deck has two small overhanging platforms situated under the massive pine trees for an intimate getaway. LAYOUT: Situated on a down sloping lot leading to the lake, the driveway is level entering the top floor garage with enough parking for four cars, two in the garage and two on the driveway. Alternate parking is curbside. From the garage, you can take the elevator to the two floors below or walk down the steps to the top floor entry. The elevator's first stop is the main entry where four of the five bedrooms are located. Three rooms have king size beds, two with a trundle or sofa bed, with sliding glass doors to the top deck. The fourth has bunks for four or five children and/or adults. There is also a sofa bed in the entry. Take the elevator or walk down to the lower level where you will find a new pool table in the large open great room encompassing the living, kitchen and dining areas. The master bedroom is located on this floor featuring a king size bed, cozy sitting corner overlooking the lake and a newly remodeled luxurious bathroom. Easy entry to the rear deck is available from three sliding glass doors on this level. All the bathrooms were recently remodeled, four featuring elegant granite counters and travertine tile. ENTERTAINMENT: Boulder Shores offers many updated electronics. There are flat screen TV’s in every bedroom and a 47" flat screen over the gas fireplace in the living room, with upgraded Cable, DVD and IPod stereo dock. PETS: This home is pet friendly with one or two dogs only. Extra charges apply of $25 per night per dog plus $25 additional cleaning fee.

Nine of us very comfortably had a great time at Boulder Shores Lakefront recently. The ad says the house sleeps seventeen which may be a little congested for our tastes but, as mentioned, nine adults were very comfortable. The house sits below the main road so be prepared to use the stairs. If that is a problem, this may not be the location for your stay. There is a small elevator that once you get the hang of it, is is pretty easy to use. We used it mostly as a dumb waiter to load and unload luggage and provisions. Only a few of us, without issues with claustaphobia actually rode in it.
The house is not ultra modern but nearly everything we needed kitchen wise was there for us. The views of the lake could not be better. It is a gorgeous location on a spectacularly beautiful lake.
Would definitely do it again as it was the basis for a great family reunion that helped create wonderful lasting memories.
Lastly, the experience with Pullen Rental Group that manages the property was very good. They quickly attended to a couple of very minor issues regarding our stay there. Thank you!

This house was perfect for a large group and was very well maintained. It was stocked with everything that we needed to cook for a large group. The view was amazing so we never wanted to leave. The house was set up perfectly to share with other familes as three of the rooms had ensuites and beatiful views of Lake Tahoe.

The house was wonderful! It was so comfortable and well stocked. The view was incredible. We had a wonderful time and would definitely consider renting the same house again. We initially had some trouble with the code for the gate, but Lucia from Pullen, was extremely helpful, as she has been during the whole rental process.
This was a great home for several families. Lucia was very helpful. Home was clean and well equip with any kitchen gadget you may. Private dock was a plus. Floor plan had good separation of space for everyone to enjoy.
Location was a little tricky with sharp turns off main street. I would have rated all five stars if gate code was given with rental instructions. Make sure you get the gate code because main gate in located right off busy highway and there isnt anywhere to park to try to figure things out. Very dangerous situation to have your car with kids sticking out into the highway.
Other than that, it was a perfect weekend.
