“Group Get-Away”
Reviewed 29 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The Ponderosa house is definitely a great place to stay if you have at least 12 or more people staying. There is plenty of space and rooms to accommodate everyone. It has all the amenities that you need for a short or long stay. It is within a 15 min drive from the Casinos, 5 min from the lake and shopping is even closer, yet it is secluded enough to enjoy some piece and quiet. Any rule or requirements were posted in plain site as to not cause any confusion during check-out. The only thing I would recommend if you're traveling with a large group is to car pool, as there is a restriction to the number of cars the rental can occupy. This is definitely a place I would consider staying at in the future.

“The owner, Mike, was extremely helpful!”
Reviewed 29 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013
people found this review helpful

Our team was in Lake Tahoe in July for a basketball tournament. Instead of renting our individual hotel rooms, the team decided to rent this house.

PROS: The owner, Mike, was so accessible before, during, and after our trip. He was easily reached and managed to return calls either immediately or shortly after. Mike ensured that we were able to check in earlier so that we can get settled as well as check out later on our last day. Conor from Tripadisor was very helpful in facilititating our refund after our departure. Despite all the housing issues we dealt with, the location was fantastic. The gym was less than 3 mins away and we were able to go back and forth in between games. Best of all, we didn't have to eat out. We had phenomenal parents who went back and forth in between games to prepare good/healthy meals. The players also got to go back and forth to chill in between games. The neighborhood was convienced with many stores, shops, gas stations, and anything in between. The house was in a great location.


The pics looks nice but the house itself is a little outdated. Some renovations were done but still need some work done. We had to restrict the use jn one of the bathroom's upstairs (one of the sinks was leaking and the toilet clogged upon the first use). Some of the beds need to be replaced due to wear and tear. The sofa beds in the living room were not usable. Either the springs were broken or the mattresses were torn and exposed. The bathroom downstairs closest to the kitchen had a slight problem but one of the parents was able to bandaged the situation which turned the bathroom usable for the duration.

Despite some of the house problems, our overall positive experience outweighed the isses arised. The problems were always dealt with at hand and having Mike be responsive made the problems tolerable.

I would recommend this house but make sure you speak with Mike about some of the problems mentioned.

This home is perfect for large groups (up to 20 ppl) it is always my pleasure to help my customers have a great time at any cost
when customers had a plumbing issues in the bathrooms i offered to send a plumber to repair it but she said it was not necessary
but after they left it was all repair .thanks to the feedback from Amy (the guest) otherwise i wont find out about small leaks and flush handles not working properly
The house decor has a western aspect to it which might seems (outdated) the house went through a major remodel not too long ago with new appliances: stove,refrigerator,dishwasher ,microwave and cabinets
also like she mentioned the house located in the middle of it all close to Golf course 5 miles shops 2 casinos 6 ski mountains 8 also thee is gas station liqueur store auto repair and many other shops within 1 mile
thank you for the kind words we hope to see you again soon
