About Marilyn Blaustein

Mel & Marilyn and Carol & Richard have been friends for many years. Between them, they have 10 children, many of whom are friends also. It was this association that caused them to consider a vacation property where they could all spend quality time with their children and their friends in the place they love the most.

Marilyn Blaustein purchased this house in 2005

What makes this house unique

We are able to completely get away from our day to day lives when we come up to the Lake. We are also able to enjoy the view of the Lake from every room of the house and our own private beach. We've spent so many wonderful days exploring the hiking trails, restaurants, and various beaches and towns around Lake Tahoe. We all, our kids and dogs, absolutely love our time at the Lake.

Nice home with great view!

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this home for four nights. Great location. About an hour to Reno or south lake. The road noise was probably the worst part about it but there isn't a whole lot anyone can do about it! All homes in Tahoe lake are close to the main road. It was perfectly sized and had all the things we needed. We enjoyed a fire outside, a dip in the hot tub, we played games on the deck and watched some fun movies on the tv. My one complaint was It could use a deep deep clean. There were a lot of cob webs in the corners of everything but it was otherwise clean and comfortable. I would recommend it for friends or groups as it had a perfect layout. The beds were comfortable and I wish we had one more day of sun on the deck. Thanks for sharing your home with us. We had an unforgettable time!!!

Excellent Management

  • 5 of 5

The manager was very responsive. The house itself was clean and had everything we needed.

I wish it accommodated more people because it's in a great location and was great for our dogs as well. Our dogs are not runners, so not having a fence was not an issue. We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful and well equipped home

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time staying at Lakeside at Agate Bay. Everything we needed was available, the kitchen was very functional and well equipped. We enjoyed having our morning coffee on the front deck watching the sun rise over the lake. The spa was very relaxing after a long day at Sand Harbor swimming and Kayaking. Evenings were spent in the family room watching tv and playing board games. The location was perfect with dining and shopping close by. Though the house is located on the main road, once inside you hardly notice it. The owners were very responsive and provided thorough instructions and area recommendations which were much appreciated since it was our first visit to Tahoe. We would definitely recommend this property and We look forward to returning again soon.

Thanks,the Ryan Family

Wonderful Tahoe Experience

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fantastic late summer stay at this Lakeside home. This is a very high quality, well-maintained home with great interior design. The house was stocked with everything we could have asked for and came with very thorough instructions and a guide to local attractions. Location is beautiful and convenient. The road is fairly busy on the weekend,, but we didn't notice the noise unless we were on the front deck. Hot tub was hot and sparkling clean. We had a wonderful time and would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful home but not a great beach

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Lakeside at Agate Bay for 6 nights and while we loved the house we didn't think that the beach was one that we would want to hang out at. We only went down there twice to let our dog swim and maneuvering the rocks on the beach was not fun. We primarily chose this house because of the private beach, thinking we could hang out on it doing the day, but it just isn't really a beach, more of a very rocky shore. We also did not have a good night's sleep the first night due to a bachelor party next door. When we arrived at 4pm the guys next door were all out on their deck, which is really close, drinking and partying and this went into the night with music blasting. Around 1am there was a fight between a man and a woman that went on and on outside which kept us up. They left the next day thank goodness. The house itself is wonderful and very well equipped with everything that you could possibly need and very well appointed with comfy beds and fans for every room since there are no screens on the master bedroom door to outside. I hate to even complain but I think that the beach should not be a selling point.

Very disappointing for a summer vacation

  • 1 of 5

We just returned from your Agate Bay house and I felt compelled to let you know how disappointed we were. I guess I should have paid more attention to the sentence in your VRBO description that mentions that the Lakeshore is a main road. The noise from the road was close to unbearable. We couldn’t use the porch, the backyard – or your beach, for that matter - because the noise from the throughway was so terrible. It also affected our sleep. And crossing the road to the beach was a matter of taking our lives in our hands.

I am very surprised at the high reviews your place has on VRBO. We were very close to calling you right after we arrived because we were so disappointed in the property. We were expecting to have a beautiful mountain getaway. We decided to stay and plan trips that better suited our expectations, but we had to travel pretty far to fulfill them.

Owner's Response: I was very sorry to hear this guest was disappointed with their vacation. When she wrote to me after she returned home I said I wish she had contacted me while she was at the house to let me know that she was unhappy and would like to leave. In that case, we would have refunded her payment and they could have found a home more to their liking. I do think our reviews say a lot about how our guests feel about the house and location. We make every effort to be clear about the location of the house in discussion with prospective guests, and the description on the site also states (in more than one location) that this is a split lakefront on the main road that runs around the lake. Tolerance for road noise is personal preference. Our family, and clearly most of our guests, feel the views and proximity to the lake more than make up for the inconvenience of road noise.
