Tallac Lodge Luxury Vacation Rental -Walk to Beach
Description from the manager
The Tallac Lodge luxury vacation rental is a luxury home that is very unique because it backs up to U.S. Forest Land while still only being only 1/8 mile from Lake Tahoe and on of the few dog friendly beaches in north Tahoe (Patton Beach). Guests can easily walk to the lake, multiple restaurants including Old Post Office Coffee Shop, CB's Pizza, Watermans Landing, and Gar Woods Bar & Grill.
The 6 bedroom, 6.5 bath house is designed and outfitted differently so it is not your typical "rental" property. Four bedrooms are suites, with queen or king beds fitted with imported Italian linens made of high thread-count Egyptian cotton, and en-suite bathrooms. These bedrooms are nicely spaced apart for comfort and privacy, with one suite on the main floor, two suites on the second floor, and one large suite with a peek lake views in an apartment-like setting over the garage (accessible from the interior of the house). All of these suites have flat-screen, high definition televisions, internet connected Blu-Ray DVD players, and iPhone/iPad connectors. The remaining bedroom on the first floor has two twin beds, and close and easy access to a large bathroom with giant stall shower that also serves as the ground floor guest bath.
Main Level: The main level is handicapped accessible but using a ramp stored in the garage. On this main level there is a gourmet kitchen, outfitted with stainless steel appliances including a 5-burner range with twin ovens, one electric wall oven and one wall-mounted microwave, flat screen tv, and a giant granite-topped center island enables breakfasts and dinner buffets to be served for the entire crowd, along with a dining table that seats 12. There is a full bath between the kitchen and living room. The living room features 30 foot cathedral ceilings, rock fireplace, large sectional micro-suede sofa, 50' flat screen tv with surround sound, Apple TV, and Ipod docking station. The large redwood deck is just off the living room, 8 person hot tub, patio furniture, and propane BBQ. Further down the hallway from the living room is a bedroom with a queen bed with flat screen tv, a bedroom with 2 twin beds, and another full bathroom.
Second Level: Upstairs is the gabled-ceiling media room, with two couches, a full audio-visual system with Dolby 5.1 surround sound, giant LED HDTV with Sony Xbox, and internet connected Blu-Ray player and foos ball table. Just off the media room is a half-bath and laundry with washer and dryer, and down the hall are two bedroom suites with queen beds and each with their tub and shower.
Third Level: A master suite with hardwood floors, sitting area, Flat Screen TV, King Bed, Japanese soaking tub, walk in slate shower, and great views of the forest.
Bedroom Above Attached Garage: This suite is accessed either by the main house near the kitchen or through the garage. The spacious bedroom includes an attached bath, tv, and some lake views from the bedroom windows.

6 bedroom Very comfortable house, Ii recommend. Spacious and fully equipped kitchen and dining, perfect for the 12 adults there. The bathroom downstairs prepared for the handicapped was perfect for my 92-years old mother-in-law. But, the cleaning somehow could be better. The drawers, the bedroom floors could be better taken care of. The kitchen is gullo equipped

This was our family's first time together in Tahoe and we loved our stay at Tallac lodge. There was plenty of space for the adults, kids and even a couple of dogs. The dining table is huge and the game room was a fun place for the kids to hang out in. Garwoods is a walk across the street with beautiful lake views when we didn't feel like eating in. We would recommend this place to anyone who just wants to getaway for some relaxation.

This is a beautiful cabin. Very spacious and perfect for a family with children. Wonderful outside space with fenced in back yard and decks. Our family had a great time. The people at agate Bay Realty are the most accommodating, helpful people I have ever worked with.

This house was perfect for my family to be together to celebrate our daughters wedding. It was so spacious and comfortable. Everyone had plenty of room to relax and enjoy the beautiful North Lake Tahoe neighborhood. Only a short walk to the wedding sight it was perfect for wedding day pictures,family dinners, and a place that we made wonderful lifelong memories. The homes handicapped bathroom was so helpful for elderly parents. Well stocked kitchen with cooking supplies. I could have used a few more serving bowls but, we managed ok with what was provided. I would definately rent this home again.

I like this house because its location is great: close to North Star Ski Resort Village (about 10 min drive), Safeway (3 miles away), 7-11 (a min away). There are restaurants close by and it's close to the lake as well.
The house has 6 bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms...good for our big groups with kids. It's also clean and well maintained in general, except that the detergent holder cover of the dishwasher is broken.
Beds are comfy and clean but I'd like to see more extra blankets and pillows which are usually available in most other vacation houses. In Tallac, there is not any extra blankets and pillows. However, i do like it that there are hair dryers and lots of hangers in each bedroom.
I also wanna make a special note that there is a big wheelchair accessible bathroom with adaptive equipment (shower seat, ramp to get into the shower stall, toilet grab rails) available on the ground floor. I'm a therapist myself and happy to see such accommodation available.
I like it the best that the living room is very spacious and there is a separate play room for kids to stay. In fact, if you have an aero bed, it can serve another bedroom (if you don't mind that there is no door).
Overall, I like this house and will definitely come back to stay in it.

We loved staying at Tallac Lodge. The forest was our backyard. The house was beautifully appointed. The beds and linens were extremely comfortable. The kitchen was gourmet and a pleasure to use. The location was great. We could not have wished for anything more perfect. The only negative was the atttitude of the realty company. When we called them to tell them that the hot tub had murky water, they were not interested in addressing this unless we paid for a visit by the hottub company. In addition,when we arrived one hour earlier than check in with a shuttle to the realty office we had to convince them to let the shuttle drop us at the house to wait for the cleaning company to finish. I would not hesitate to rent this house but I would not count on the friendliest response from the realty company for any problems you might encounter.
