Exactly as adverised. Great Vacation House close to Zephyr Cove.

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nice and comfortable. Great views. You can walk to Zephyr Cove beach. no need to drive anywhere once you settle in. There are a lot of stairs and you can only park two cars, but it was not an issue for us. We did not experience any problems with the house and felt that the communication with the owners was excellent. I just showed up and everything was ready to go, very easy. We did not bring dogs but the cabin looks like it is very pet friendly. There is plenty of room for a large group. We had 7 and had space for a few more. We never felt crowded.

Amazing Property/Location

  • 5 of 5

I knew from the minute I booked that this was going to be a great place to stay. Dean and Diana responded promptly to every question I had and made sure the process went smoothly. Their instructions were very easy to follow and I enjoyed working with them.

I stayed here with some girlfriends and we could not get over how awesome this property was. All of the bedrooms were nice and comfortable, ESPECIALLY the master bedroom. The kitchen had everything we needed and was very spacious. It definitely exceeded our expectations.

Also, the location was perfect. We were able to walk from the property to Zephyr Cove beach which made us enjoy our time that much more. I can't wait to come back soon!

Incredible Location! Cute Decor.

  • 5 of 5

We recently booked this place for a girls weekend (there were 8 of us) and we couldn't be more pleased with the place! Fair warning, there are a lot of stairs, but the cottage itself is really nicely decorated with lots of useful built-ins. It was a nice feminine alternative to so many manly cabins you see in the area and perfect for a group of ladies. We had one issue where the beach towels weren't left out, but the owner worked with the property manager to get it solved within a few hours with great customer service. Hands down the best part of the house is it's location! We walked to Zephyr Cove Beach which was just across the street every day. I would highly recommend White Wolf Cottage!

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed at the White Wolf Cottage a few times and everytime we have the best time! This house has more emmenties everytime we come. This time they added a sauna in the guest house. It was awesome! We love the kitchen/sitting room. Plenty of room for everyone to play games, eat and hang out. We love the master bedroom and bath! Absolutely luxurious! We also love the location. It's a short walk to the beach. The owners are amazing! They are accomodating and make sure our stay is perfect. The house was warm when we arrived and made the house so cozy! All around great in every way! Great for kids and dogs!

Amazing House! Wonderful vacations!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome place for vacations! We all loved the house and eventhough it was a storm by the time we were in our vacations we all had a great time staying in the house watching movies, playing bingo, playing cards, we had our tea time with our friends from England, and we even got into the jacuzzi(the snow couldn't stop us for been out in the jacuzzi) and have a relax time! the house has everything you need for vacations and we even did a bbq in one of the days we stayed there. Master bedroom, Amazing it has a beautiful view! The location of the house is pretty good because is close to the shopping place, casinos and the gondolas and it has a quiet neighborhood. Dean and Diana are really nice and very kind owners, I received and update from Dean the day before of my arrival about the weather and how the road was, they also respond really quick with any questions or concern about the place. Another Plus that the house has is the guess house, beautiful and it has everything you need even a sauna. If I have the opportunity to go back to Lake Tahoe again for vacations, I will definitely rent again Dean's and Diana's place!! Thank you both for been so honest and so kind!!

Beautiful home, meticulously kept! Stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 4 days at White Wolf Cottage. We enjoyed every moment of our stay. Dean and Diane are wonderful hosts. They made us feel comfortable and communication was very simple and easy with them. The home is gorgeous! The master bedroom is beyond words! I didn't want to leave. The walk-in shower is amazing and large open bathtub is gorgeous! The views from the second and third floor are breathtaking. The home has everything you need and more. It was our first trip to Tahoe, but certainly won't be our last.

The home is close to Heavenly Ski resort and just a quick walk from Lake Tahoe. Food, bars, and shopping are just a few miles down the road. The house is in a nice, quiet neighborhood which made it really easy to relax.

Seriously, you can't go wrong renting this house!

Thanks Dean and Diane!
