This picture is very misleading. Looks like it's in the middle of a forest, but it's actually in a neighborhood at least 7 miles away from South Lake Tahoe. We arrive to find a porta potty in front of the house, and a halfway build 2 story house less than 10 feet away from the wrap around deck. We checked in on a Sunday, and at 7AM on Monday morning, we were woke up to the sounds of hammering and sawing. Not a pleasant way to spend a vacation. The house itself is quite rustic to be generous, and many of the photos were misleading. I can understand why they took some of the photos at a high angle. You will be surprised to see what they cropped out.
We couldn't take much more after 2 mornings, and to the credit of the management company, they offered us the choice of 3 other houses for the same price. They were very cool, but unpacking, packing and unpacking again caused us to waste a half a day of vacation.
I believe that the management company didn't know there was construction going on, but somebody did. These things don't just happen out of the blue. Coupled with the other misleading photos, I feel that we were misled. My opinion is that this place is a dump, and the owners are milking this to the detriment of unsuspecting vacationers like us.
Would you recommend this vacation rental to a friend?

Perfect Cabin for our Vacation
Left on 09/05/2013 for a stay in August 2013 | ELJO Corona
It was a last minute vacation plan for our family before school starts. I came across this really nice cabin and found the cost within my budget. I booked right away, the process was very simple. The cabin was really nice, spacious, and pet friendly. What I love about this place is it has all the kitchen tools I need to cook. It has washer and dryer so I was able to wash our dirty clothes before we went home. We had a great experience and really happy to find this cabin.

Nice Quiet Cabin

We enjoyed our stay in this cabin, clean toilets, the only thing is that the carpets are filthy. One would think that for paying $135 for cleaning that the rug would actually be cleaned.

A perfect getaway for the two of us. The place was very pleasant. The area beautiful. Will be returning.
The only thing that could be improved is the couch is not too comfortable for two people to sit on, but we didnt do a whole lot of sitting anyway.

Great Budget Rental - Good for kids
Left on 01/11/2012 for a stay in January 2012 | Reno Fam
Spent 4 days here with my wife and children (5 and 7 years old); we also had a second family of 4 up for 2 of the days; ample space and sleeping arrangements were ideal for 8. The single bathroom didn't seem problematic and the shower was great, as was the tub. The fireplace is a definite "selling point" for this rental and made it cozy to be sure. The property backs up to forest land and is connected to nature trails that lead out to bike trails toward Meyers, Ca.
A few complaints... The bedding is not very desirable and the pillows were flat, so come prepared here; some of the DVD players and such didn't work and the television channels were quite limited. Also, this rental could use a deep cleaning and elimination of cobwebs!
The bottom line is, however, that this rental is more for those who don't demand as much "luxury" and find escape through simple relaxation and outdoor activities, as opposed to being pampered away from home. As mom says, a little dirt never hurt anyone!

The house was better than the pictures and description. Was a little weary about 1 bathroom for 7 people but it worked out fine. Look forward to staying here again.

This one is in a great location and in decent condition. I can't think of any better for that incredible price. I will probably rent it again in the future.
Mckinney & Assoc. are very pleasant to deal with and very helpful.

We enjoyed our stay.I liked the fact that there were 3 Tv's in the cabin.Thought the carpet could have been cleaner and you need a better BBQ. But over all had a good time. Thanks again,Gary
Great family cabin
Left on 06/22/2011 for a stay in June 2011 | Lynn Davis
This is cabin is roomy and fun. Nothing is fancy, but all functional. (Except the jets on the tub, they didn't work.) There is only one bathroom and the shower is quite small, but it all worked out and we had 7 people there. The deck furniture was a little disappointing, kind of rusty and old. Having a fire in the round fireplace was a snap and really warmed the cabin right up. The neighborhood is quiet and a good place to take a walk. It was very easy to get into town with all the needed stores. If you like a good cabin, this is for you!

My family and I had a wonderful time at this cabin. There is a great hill for sledding behind this house. Kids had a blast and the adults enjoyed them selves by just relaxing after playing in the snow. We will definately stay here again but for a longer period of time. The weekend just wasn't long enough.

disappointed with cleanliness and condition of home
Left on 01/06/2011 for a stay in December 2010 | disappointed
We arrived very late at night (we had told the rental company we would be arriving late) to find bedding on the floor, a sticky kitchen table, and a dirty bathroom - the house had obviously not been cleaned. After sleeping on dirty sheets, we called the company the next day and asked them to clean the house. We also asked them to shovel the front steps and deck as it had snowed overnight and the footing to the front door was dangerous. The place was cleaned but only the front steps were cleared, leaving snow on the front deck making getting to the front door difficult. It snowed again during our stay and the driveway and steps were cleared, but, again, no clear path to the front door. We couldn't find a shovel to do it ourselves. We were disappointed in the fact that we had to sleep on dirty sheets and call the next day to get the house cleaned and no compensation was offered. I called after our stay to give this feedback and haven't heard a resolution.
The house itself was also disappointing. It's listed as either a 3 bedroom or 2 bedroom + loft in the advertisement, but really the second bedroom is just a cubicle in a loft - doesn't have a top or closet so it really doesn't qualify as a bedroom. It is a very big one bedroom and does sleep 8 people, but potential clients need to be aware that 6 of the 8 people are sleeping in an open area of the house. The kitchen table was wobbly, and some of the chairs were broken. The walls and carpeting of the place seemed rundown. The fireplace provided no heat and ended up just being in the way.
I know this is hard to control for, but it seemed every pot I pulled out of the cabinet had to be washed because there was food on it from previous tenants.
It was nice to have a washer, dryer, and small dishwasher. The quiet street was really appreciated. The shower and tub were nice. Read more

There was a scheduling problem with this home and it was not cleaned on arrival. The guests were refunded their cleaning fee in full and housekeeping was sent out to clean the home as soon as we heard of the problem. The owners pay for regular snow removal for the driveway and walkway to the front door. Snow removal of porches, decks and balconies are not normally done. The owner pays for a regular deep cleaning of the entire home every spring and fall. The carpets are professionally cleaned every spring and fall as well. The home has one bedroom downstairs and then a large loft which has partitions that offer additional separate sleeping areas.

Close to the slopes, cheaper than a hotel

I was surprised to find a cabin that sleeps 8 for the price we were given, when we split up the price it came down to alot less than staying at a hotel. and was actually closer than sierra at Tahoe ski resort too, maybe a 20 minute drive with good road conditions. fireplace made gave it a very cozy cabin-in-the-woods kind of feel.

The house was smaller then what the photos reveal the cleanliness was not so great we spent the first day cleaning the cabin and had to buy cleaning supplies.The location was ideal and once we cleaned it was good we had a wonderful time and enjoyed the unexpected snow storm.

My kids and I visited just before Christmas 2009 and found the cabin neat, clean and well equipped. My only negative comment is with respect to the upstairs television which was not watchable due to bad color (perhaps the tube is worn out). The parking space, stairs and deck were plowed/shoveled for us when it snowed. The folks at CB-McKinney were helpful and pleasant to work with. We'd definitely go back.

The location was fine. Service was good. Carpet was dirty. When we walked in we were greeted with a filthy throw rug on the floor in front of the fire stove. We did not walk in our bare feet or socks in this unit. The table and kitchen counters were sticky. We had to wash down the counter tops before we could use them. Dried food on the cutting board, Cabinets not at all organized. Owners staples (food items), filled most of the cabinets except the one above the ref. We had to move a lot of stuff to make room for our kitchen items. Because the place was so dirty, there was really no consideration about using any of the supplies left by the owners. Air Tub kept turning on and we were uable to turn it off. Deck had not been cleaned in months. Verticle blinds falling off. Blinds in dining area damaged. Broken lamp shade. Prior tenants debris under sofas. Very hot in the loft. (we were there during a mini heat wave). Loft TV did not work. Downstairs TV did not get volume for several stations. (picture only. Master bedroom side table, lamp stuck to table from prior spill that was not cleaned up. Housekeeping obviously does no cleaning in this unit. The bathroom was okay except for the wood trim that goes around the bathroom. It was very dirty. Not dusted for months. Doors dirty. Need to have dirty hand prints wiped off. The sliding glass door would not lock. We put the fireplace poker in the tract when we left. We did not enjoy having to clean the kitchen before we could use it. This is the first time we have rented a house that allowed pets and I must say the conditions was not a result of the pets. On check out, I informed rental co. about condition. I would rent the home again if I could be assured the cleaning crew was doing what they were paid to do. Old is one thing, dirty was another. Home also better for a family, not two adult couples sharing one bathroom. Read more

Our staff is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to handle any and all guests complaints that might arise. We were not made aware of these issues until the guests departed. We have notified the owner of the home and he has had the home thoroughly deep cleaned to resolve these issues.

Comfortable, spacious older cabin located in a quiet neighborhood away from the hustle of town, but still close to everything. Two bedrooms downstairs, with another bedroom and a couple of twins upstairs in the large loft. The beds were very comfortable, as was the furniture in the living room. Windows everywhere. Private hot tub on the deck.
The tv in the loft did not work, but maybe that's been fixed by now. Only one bathroom, but it was newly updated. No A/C, but fans were supplied. Internet connection was a plus.
If you want a relaxing vacation and do not require anything fancy this might be the place for you.

This was a very nice and cozy cabin. My family and I really enjoyed it. It was to far from the lake, casinos,and stores.
The price was right and I would definitely consider staying again.
