"The Greater Essence of Tahoe" was a perfect Tahoe weekend getaway for our four families including 9 children. We thoroughly enjoyed the incredible amenities this property has to offer - the entertainment room, hot tub, open floor plan, large master bedrooms and space, space, space. This house is really large so the 17 of us were able to come together when we wanted to and retreat into our separate spaces when some alone time was needed. We talked about booking this property again in the summer!
We wanted to celebrate our 50th Anniversary someplace where we could have the entire family together but still have privacy. After an extensive search on line we found The Bigger Essence of Tahoe. The photos looked so inviting and since we wanted something special for the family, we booked it. Everyone was excited for the big day and when we arrived everyone was amazed at the space, and luxury throughout and all agreed it was way above their expectations. Something to do for everyone but the main attraction was the "Disco" room. WOW. The children and adults had a ball and didn't want to leave.
The location of the Bigger Essence was ideal for the many activities, such as boat rentals, bicycle riding and a huge surprise from my children was an evening on the MS Dixie wit a Champagne dinner cruise on Lake Tahoe.
Communications with the owner "Hutch" were always pleasant throughout the process. He was always very accommodating and wanted to insure we had everything we needed.
I highly recommend the Bigger Essence for anyone wanting to a SPECIAL place for a memorable experience. You won't regret it.
You All Come Back Now....
We recently stayed at The Bigger Essence of Tahoe and it is everything we expected and much more. The spacious home was in immaculate condition upon arrival. The amenities were top-notch. The location of the home is ideal. I would absolutely recommend this home to family and friends and will definitely be coming back next year for our annual trip.
Bigger Essence of Tahoe was a wonderful fit for our group of ten (+ can accommodate more)! Surprisingly cozy for such a spacious property, with plenty of room to explore and several inviting spots for us all to gather, or even spread out solo when needed... This place had options! That was top priority for our three generations of family, and we really appreciated + made full use of the space.
High marks for proximity too -- while located in a quiet neighborhood, everything we wanted to do and see (skiing, restaurants, Stateline, etc.) was a very short drive from the house. Luxury bathrooms, kitchen, hot tub and other amenities, and a wide range of entertainment options for adults & littles alike made it easy to relax and unwind all week long. Any questions we had during our stay were promptly answered by the helpful Drew. Would surely recommend this house, esp. to groups with a busy mix of kids and adults. Will book again!
A year ago, our family made the decision to spend Thanksgiving week together in Tahoe. There was much searching of web sites to find the home that would be the perfect fit for our family. To say that I am a bit picky about where we would stay is an understatement. Lucky for us the home “Greater Essence of Tahoe” was available. Our experience with the home and its owner Hutch was fantastic!
The home itself was beyond our expectations from the beautiful open concept kitchen, great room, and formal dining area to the spacious media room with its comfy recliners in which we could relax and enjoy our favorite holiday movies. Great entertainment was had playing pool, darts, and arcade games in the recreation room, and the massage chair was amazing. The bedrooms were large and numerous (6) and could accommodate 18 people, and easily provided space for our 12 adults and 3 children.
Of special importance to me was the kitchen with its high-end appliances that included the large Viking range on which we cooked the Thanksgiving meal, the built in refer that held all the food we couldn’t have eaten in a month (luckily there was a secondary fridge as well), and two dishwashers. Our sit-down dinner was an amazing opportunity for all of us to share a special meal together.
Close by is shopping (remember all that food that required two huge refrigerators), casinos and shows, and at this time of year a chance for the little ones to sled in the snow.
I could go on and on regarding the toasty warm fireplaces, impressive large screen TV’s, luxurious bathrooms with steam and their multiple shower-heads, but the best part of all was how comfortable my family felt, how much fun we had, and the special memories we will share of our time at the “Greater Essence of Tahoe”. Thank you Hutch for sharing your fabulous home with us we will definitely want to return.
