About Colleen Orfuss

We have two young children (7 and 5 years old) and live in Oakland, California. Tahoe and Park City are destinations we have been coming to for many years with our families. Most recently, Park City hosted 200 family and friends for a beautiful wedding in Deer Valley for our sister. We love coming for a powdery ski week or a warm and sunny summer getaway. We have been coming to this location in Tahoe since Colleen was a child with her extended family. Many happy memories here!

Great Location with a $1M View!

  • 4 of 5

The deck and dock make the place! The house wasnt what I would call fancy but it was clean and comfortable with large widows looking out over the lake toward Heavenly Valley. The owners own the house next door. We found them very nice and helpful. For the price and the location we will be back!!!....did I mention the views and the deck and dock areas, and, oh yeah, the three kayaks that came with the place were aces!!!

Great vacation

  • 4 of 5

Very enjoyable stay. The location is great with beautiful views. The dock / pier could use some updating to make for easier boat access. Otherwise we were very pleased with our stay and everything was as advertised or better.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the positive review. Glad you enjoyed your stay. We are in the permit process with TRPA to get the dock and pier totally rebuild. Hopefully, the permit will come through soon.

Beautiful Lake Tahoe Views and Access!

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed a very fun, relaxing week at the lake. We do a lot of swimming, SUP, and lounging down on the lakeside deck. The upper deck is a great place to enjoy the beautiful views, or just relax and enjoy a good book. Trips back a forth to the lake are fairly physical, and may pose a problem for some. The house is older and fairly rustic, but a comfortable vacation property. This was our second year in a row!

Amazing home

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely amazing. It was a lot bigger than expected. With 3 floors throughout the house, it had more than enough room for everyone. you cannot beat the location. The owners were very kind and had everything provided that was needed. It was such a memorable weekend staying at this home.

Great family reunion Tahoe house!

  • 3 of 5

Our extended family has been going to Lake Tahoe for over 30 years, and this house was the most popular of the three we rented for our group dinners and lake access. The beds were comfortable, and the five bedrooms were sufficient for two of our families, comprising 11 adults and one baby. The house is definitely showing it's age, but the four bathrooms have all been upgraded, and were very adequate. During the day we spent a lot of time on the lake side deck, where our group enjoyed a lot of sun bathing, swimming, and kayaking. The railings and water access points might be a safety issue for families with young children. In closing, we would definitely rent this house again!
