Photos and Description of this Glenbrook holiday house

4BR Lakeside Vacation Rental Zephyr Cove, Nevada USA

I know many of our former guests will be disappointed, but the owner of this home has taken a 2 year lease starting September 1, 2016. If you are looking for another home in the popular Zephyr Cove, NV area, I would recommend the Zephyr Cove Chateau, Homeaway # 214574 or VRBO # 19317. If you are a smaller group, you might be interested in the two chalets which are located in Montgomery Estates in South Lake Tahoe, CA, They are 3 bedroom, 2 bath homes and accommodate a maximum of 8 people. They both have foosball tables and hot tubs. They are the Tahoe Ski Chalet ( Homeaway #204384 or VRBO #5783), and the Black Bear Chalet ( Homeaway #216528 or VRBO #31144).

Guestbook comments from the owner

The owner wants to announce that the Skyland Retreat has now been updated with new carpeting except for the 3 bedrooms downstairs. The home now has all new doors, patio sliders and windows (except for the kitchen window due to future remodel plans). A painter was called in to freshen up the inside,and there is a new sleeper sofa, new stove and refrigerator, new window treatments, new comforters in each bedroom, all new linens (bedroom and bathrooms), and new dining table and chairs. We also added a 55" flatscreen TV in the living room and a 32" flatscreen TV in the master bedroom. We hope you will enjoy these new improvements.

Comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in the Skyland home for approximately five or six years every summer for a week with our children and grandchildren. The home is set up for a great vacation. Plenty of room for everyone. We love Lake Tahoe, the private beach for use by quest only, the neighborhood that the home is in, plus the home is wonderful for us. The owners have been very gracious to us and we plan on spending many more summers in their home. If we call them for anything they attend to it promptly.

Great Home for Families

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to Nevada was more enjoyable being able to have all the family in 1 house. There was enough room for everyone to enjoy eating and relaxing together but at the same time if alone time was needed the bedrooms were spacious enough to spend time there. We had a problem with the hot tub but the maintenance company came right away and fixed it. The mountain views are breathtaking! Can't wait to come back in the summer to enjoy the water!

A white Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best Thanksgiving's we have spent with our family. Having two daughters and three grandkids this house was perfect in terms of room and location. The house has four bedrooms and two bathrooms enough for our family. The kitchen and living area were on the second floor which was street level so you could walk right in from the street. It has a large TV in the family room and every bedroom has a TV. There is also a pool table in the family room. In terms of location this housing area has it own beach which was a very short walk from the house. Safeway is just three miles away and Stateline is 5 miles away. We are definitely coming back this summer.

Thanks Cheryl! We just loved staying at the house. Got such a kick out of the ambiance…. All the pine paneling and wooden bears. The house was clean and cozy, and my husband and I appreciated the king bed.... we have a queen at home. Sure caught up on our sleep! Our Conservancy hikes were fabulous!!! Now, back to work. Ugh!

Great rates and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The Retreat has been a great affordable choice for our trips to Lake Tahoe with the kids. We have 3 children under the age of 5, and what we really liked was that I could take them downstairs for their naps and the adults could continue doing what they wanted to do upstairs. We even discovered that there is a pocket door at the bottom of the stairs that will keep it completely quiet downstairs. The kids got so overtired from all our activities and hikes that they would take 2-3 hour naps. Wonderful!!! We loved the house and the back deck looking out towards the lake. This was our second summer and we can’t wait to go to Lake Tahoe again next year.

  • 2 of 5

Having lived in Reno & spending numerous times in Lake Tahoe, we found this house to be old & desperately in need of upkeep & updating, mix matched furniture, dirty & stained. bathrooms dirty & moldy.Bed linenes with little red drops on them. we could not locate bed bugs. (maybe they die off in the winter),. fixture missing on stairs to upper level. Dishes, glasses and pots and pans in deplorable condition. Not all appliances workable.Desperate need of paint job and new window treatments. Spare blankets torn and falling apart. handles on small sink are backwards. Noy enough hot water for one person to compete a bath. Gutter missing over lower level parking causing are to be icy and dangerous and a relative slept & fell. . Location was excellent, nice neifgnorhood and snow removal service was prompy. we love the lake & we will not let this bad experience color our future travel plans.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry that our home didn’t live up to your expectations. Since the living room has leather furniture except for the new microsuede sleeper sofa, I’m not sure what was dirty and stained. My sister owns the professional house cleaning company, and I know her standards. I know that the sheets were washed, were fresh and the bathrooms were clean. I was in the house a couple days before you arrived and had inspected it. There is a set of white dishes (set of 16), a new set of glasses (as of December 2011), and pots and pans purchased December 2010. Do you mean that things were in a jumble in the cupboards? I’m not sure what you meant. There is a functioning glass-top stove with four burners, all working. You told me that the hot plate with 2 burners which is across the kitchen had one burner not working, and I thanked you for letting me know. Since almost the entire house has paneling, the only area of paint would be in the living room, where the pool cues have left blue marks. That is scheduled to be painted this spring. The handles on the bar sink in the kitchen are not reversed in terms of hot/cold, but instead, rather than pulling them forward to turn on, they need to be pushed back. In terms of the hot water, if there was a problem, why didn’t you call? That is an issue that would need to be dealt with immediately, just as we helped you through your dilemma with the baseboard heating, telling you that it takes a while for homes in the snow to heat up, and the boiler doesn’t make any noise as a force air unit does. Your problem was that you didn’t turn up the thermostat downstairs. Finally, there are very few homes in Lake Tahoe that have gutters because they don’t work that efficiently in snowy conditions since the snow fills up the gutters, then freezes and then the next storm finds the gutters filled with a block of ice. There are no gutters on the house, and we do warn people about icy conditions in the winter. I feel badly that you didn’t call me about your issues.
