Relax on the furnished stone patio as small animals and birds feed from their established 'feeding rocks'.

Located just 3.5 miles from Tahoe City's beaches, music festivals, and farmers markets. World class dining is just around the corner, as well as boutique shopping and art galleries.

Kids, and dogs, welcome! I suppose my limit is two dogs, but if you have more, and they are old, or small, or somehow otherwise reasonable, let's talk. Doggie beds provided: two large, two medium, and two small. Additionally, a supply of sheets you may spread over furniture in order that your doggies may use the furniture without worry.

Smoking is OK on the patio or the deck, but not in the house.

Check-in time, 5 pm. Check-out time, 10 am. This gives me seven hours between guests to insure that everything is in readiness for your visit. NOTE: In those cases where there is no other guest leaving the day you arrive, or arriving the day you leave, I am able to be more flexible, and TYPICALLY you can arrive, and depart, at whatever time of day is optimal for you. Of course, if other guests make a reservation after you have made yours, the 5 pm and 10 am times would apply.

I live in a small "mother-in-law" cottage on the same property. I am retired, and busy myself taking care of our 150 trees, raking trails, moving firewood, and other tasks away from the main cabin. I make an effort to be entirely invisible during your visit, although I am always available to you in person, or by phone, text, or email. Sometimes, I visit friends out of town; on those occasions I am still available by phone, text, or email, although not in person, of course.

For reservations, or questions, call (916-813-8553) or text (916-813-8553) Brian, or use the systems in place here on VRBO.

Thank you!

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning Fee C$159.41
Damage Deposit C$318.82

1-night offer: In those cases where there is only 1 night available between other bookings, you may stay for 1 night.

CANCELLATION POLICY: INITIAL DEPOSIT INCLUDES A NON-REFUNDABLE FEE OF $50 PER NIGHT FOR CANCELLATION. OTHERWISE, ALL RENT, DEPOSITS, FEES, AND TAXES ARE FULLY REFUNDABLE IF CANCELLED 30 DAYS OR MORE BEFORE OCCUPANCY. IF YOU CANCEL IN LESS THAN 30 DAYS, I'LL TRY TO RENT THE PLACE AGAIN, AND IF SUCCESSFUL, WILL REFUND TO YOU ALL THE RENT, DEPOSITS, FEES AND TAXES, OTHER THAN THE $50 PER NIGHT NON-REFUNDABLE PORTION OF THE DEPOSIT. NO AUTOMATIC 50% REFUND FOR CANCELLATION 14 DAYS OUT.

Cleaning fee: I charge a cleaning fee of $125.00. I have surveyed (on VRBO) all the other 2-bedroom locations available in Carnelian Bay, and have found that all charge a cleaning fee; the average is $143.20. Only 26.5 % of these locations allow pets; of those that do, the average additional fee for a pet is $47.50, for a total of $190.70. So I am hopeful that you will find my fee of $125 to be reasonable and competitive.

Winter Fee (Nov 1-April 30--Same dates Caltrans says "carry chains") ($125): During the winter, to prepare for guests I must move much more (free) firewood and also remove a great deal of snow and ice. It takes me more than twice as much time to prepare for our guests in the winter; therefore I charge this fee. VRBO isn't able to apply this fee only Nov 1-April 30, but I waive it when there is no snow on the ground.

Pet fee: I allow up to two dogs, with no additional fee or deposit.

Damage deposit: $250. So far (as of March 13, 2017), all of our guests have had 100% of their damage deposit returned.

1-week stay: As you note on the rate card, I offer discounts for those who stay one week or more. However, during the busy times of the year, this excludes Saturday to Saturday visits (which consume 2 weekends). For Saturday to Saturday stays, the weekly discount rate would not apply; instead you would be charged the daily rate.
