WONDERFUL week in paradise!

The BOATHOUSE was the perfect place to stay for our family reunion. Really appreciated the owners attention to detail with instructions. It was the BEST VIEW I have ever seen in Tahoe~~~It felt like it was "OUR" lake as we looked out to the beautiful blue. Looking forward to our next stay there.

Our Wedding Week!

We had our entire wedding party stay at the house starting on the 22nd until our wedding day on the 26th. We woke up every morning to beautiful lake Tahoe. A typical day would include kayaking or paddle boarding for a few hours, lounging in the sun to dry off. Making a simple breakfast and all eating together on the huge deck. Playing lawn games (boys) and leisurely working on wedding details (girls). Most of our family and friends made a long weekend of the event and stayed at the Tahoma lodge, right across the street, so throughout the day family and friends would come over to enjoy the lake, lawn games, wedding details, or cocktails! If we needed a snack before dinner we walked up to the PDQ market for fabulous homemade sandwiches. By the evening we would start preparing the cocktails for the night and making dinner. The deck is perfect for large group dinning, and the kitchen and dinning area inside worked perfectly for serving yourself. We ate as a big family every night! Each night ended with a relaxing dip in the spa.

The wedding day.... well it was perfect. There is not many places in Tahoe that you can marry on the lake with the privacy of just your friends and family. We took pictures on the neighbors dock (need to have permission) which turned out so pretty. I cannot say enough about this location for a wedding or any event for that matter.

We would have paid double, triple, quadruple the price for staying in such a beautiful place. Lorene, the care taker, is super nice. She even came the day of the wedding and directed guests down to the house and parking (nominal fee). Kristan Flance was so nice, and helpful. She even made note of our wedding colors and planted flowers around the property to coordinate!! How amazing!! There is no other place on the lake like this!

Summer 2010

Iconic Lake Tahoe summer fun!! The outside deck overlooks a pano shot of the lake and your private beach. Kids and adults had an amazing time that we will never forget. Fire pit was a hit for after dinner activities. No need to go anywhere when it's all there for you!!!

A wonderful Old Tahoe experience in a one-of-a-kind lakefront home with exceptional care and attention by thoughtful owners to ensure your complete satisfaction. We have enjoyed many fantastic summer vacations at the Boathouse as well as the most memorable wedding for our daughter. This home easily accomodates large groups of family and friends whether you are casually relaxing or formally entertaining.

This is truly a magical spot, from the magnificent view across the lake to the exquisitely tasteful interior, cozy dining area with lake view, romantic master bedroom and fabulous separate apartment, pot-belly stoves, neat hot tub, and a well-equipped kitchen that would please any gourmet cook. Our family, including our adult children, spent a very special Christmas here: tree and owner's childhood ornaments decked out for our arrival, even Christmas candies (for Santa). Fabulous downhill and cross-country skiing and great mom-and-pop grocery within minutes of the house made our stay even more carefree, as did the attentive caretakers. To top it off, nature obliged on our last morning with a full double rainbow spanning the lake. Can't recommend the spot highly enough for any occassion or in any season. We look forward to returning.

The Matteucci Family has been vacationing at Lake Tahoe for the past 27 years and we rate the Boathouse as the best on the lake! It is wonderfully spacious for our large family gathering but very private and peaceful for those who come to relax and enjoy the best view on the lake. Thank you for sharing this special place!
