Great Atmosphere and cozy setting for a tight group of friends or family. The hot tub is critical.

We LOVED this rental. It's a small place but is very smartly laid out and well appointed. It had everything that we needed for our ski weekend. We were 15 minutes away from Squaw & Alpine and 5 minutes away from town. The hot tub was hot and ready for us upon our arrival. The bathroom fixtures were nice (loved the heated stone floors!) and the kitchen was great! It had everything that we needed to cook great meals and the dishwasher was a definite bonus. It was also wonderful to have the washer/dryer (esp to dry towels after the hot tub) and everyone had down comforters & pillows on their bed. We would definitely rent this place again and I recommend it to anyone looking for a place in Tahoe.

Loved this cabin and the location! It was the perfect cabin for our small family, 2 adults and 2 boys. Although it's on the smaller size - the floor plan and furnishing were very well thought out and it didn't feel crowed at all. The kitchen was very well equipped and fun to cook in. It decorated perfectly - simple and rustic, no "cheesy" cabin feel to it. Would definitely stay in the cabin again. The only draw back was that the yard is not fenced in and the neighbors let their big dogs run loose (all day and night) and while they are super friendly dogs (and I kind of felt sorry for them), we didn't feel comfortable letting our small boys play outside while the dogs were in the yard, which was often. We are thinking of buy a cabin in Tahoe and this would be the exact look and location we would want. I highly recommend this cabin for a family vacation.

We cannot say enough how fabulous our stay at Sunnyside Cottage was. The cabin itself was described as very small but was perfectly adequate for 2 families of 4. We did not find it too small at all. The furnishings and decor are superb, it is amazingly well stocked in the kitchen. Hot tub was on and piping hot - scenery was stunning - we never ventured out after a day's skiing, perfect to stay in, chat by the cosy log fire. Only comment would be it does not have a microwave - fine that it doesn't but would be handy to know before you got there but other than that cannot fault it - would highly recommend, loved it!

The house is perfect! like a fairy tale! In a gorgeous surrounding, close to Tahoe City and the best skiing resorts. and so beautifully decorated! so stylish! We were 7 adults (European size :) and didn't find it small (it said so in the review). The jacuzzi was very nice too after skiing! The only little issue is that the ramp to the house might be a bit tough if there's snow as it gets icy in the night. So make sure to clean the pathway at the bottom. The agency service was very good. We arrived late but it was very easy to get the key and leave it back, all well thought of. We had a problem with the lock and they came and fixed it very quickly. All extremely easy and nice. And also conveniently in Tahoe City check Dave's for rentals, in front of the agency and Rosie's. The stay was the best we ever had in Tahoe! no doubt we'll repeat!

I rented the cabin for a week of fun with old college friends and we were delighted to find such a clean and up to date place with much "Tahoe Charm"

This place is what I expect a cabin be. Very beautiful, very romantic. Decorated perfectly. We couldn't get the heated floors to work though. Also the internet wouldn't work. Also, the most important flaw to make note of is that the water heater had barely enough heat to accommodate one person. We were two people and had to get out of the shower quickly because the water would get cold. It states that 8 people can stay there. There's no way they can all take showers. Huge issue if you ask me, especially after a long day skiing in the cold. The jacuzzi was hot and perfect though, we made use that for sure.

I stayed for 3 nights of solitude and quiet. It's an adorable cottage for a couple or small family. The master bedroom is up a flight of very narrow, steep stairs which would not work for people with access concerns. The master bedroom is in an open loft. There is a sink and toilet upstairs, but no shower, so privacy could be a problem if too many adults try to use the cottage.

This is an absolutely adorable, charming house that is very true to the pictures posted. My friends and I loved it and really enjoyed our stay there. It was well equipped, comfortable, cozy, and was really well done. Totally loved it! I thought the service from Tahoe Getaways post-rental could have been more customer oriented and friendly, I've experienced better with other rental agencies in the area and I was not impressed with them. I felt it was a disservice to the house because the house itself is a fantastic property.

The cabin was really comfortable and we didn't feel like we were missing anything from home there. However, the only reason I didn't rate the stay 5 stars was the hot tub: 1) It wasn't very clean 2) The tub needs a walkway to it, its not fun stepping onto bark when getting out 3) The tub also needs a ladder, and not just a big rock to step onto when getting in/out.

We had a wonderful time. Our small but darling house was completely remodeled and very comfortable. The hot tub was set at the perfect temp and ready to use when we arrived. The garden was immaculate. The home was just a few blocks to Sunnyside which also was a nice surprise!! We look forward to booking another home very soon. Last but not least, our reservation takers were helpful and check in was easier than expected! I highly recommend Tahoe Getaways!! Debbi DiMaggio, Partner/Realtor highland partners, Piedmont, Ca

This was a great place for my family. The house and yard are beautiful, and the location perfect. The only downsides were the broken hot tub cover (difficult to open and close) and the large dogs that roam the neighborhood. The dogs seemed friendly, but I didn't trust my 2 year old to be out around them.

Really wonderful place. The house is very cute and rather upscale. Great location and neighborhood - nice walks along the creek. The kitchen could be a bit small for a larger group. There are friendly neighborhood dogs around, which for us was a positive.

The pictures of the cabin were spot on. What a well crafted Tahoe cabin, cute in every way. It was small but our family of 8 fit in quite well. The kitchen was well equiped and the sleeping accomodations were more then adequate. Another visitor mentioned the roaming dogs, yes, their were two Golden Retrivers but they were very friendly. We would definitely rent this cute Tahoe style cottage again.

My Wife and I rented the Sunnyside Cottage with another couple for the Christmas Holiday and it was perfect. The cabin was recommended by Beth at Tahoe Getaways and everyone loved the space and the location was ideal. The service by Beth and the team was top notch as always and we will be renting again soon!

Our family enjoyed this cabin immensely. The location was perfect, close enough to the ski resorts and grocery stores. If you are wanting a true cabin experience, we believe we experienced it. We would definitely go through Tahoegetaways again.

Very comfortable layout and nice amenities. Granlibakken was great and very close for our young boys to saucer the hill! Rustic pine motif. Great functional fireplace. Only thing missing was a microwave, but it was nothing the Kitchenaide oven couldn't remedy. The Wandering Labradors were great fun. We will be back.

We always hoped to stay at this amazing cabin and we were so thrilled by our experience. The owner, who is likely, also a master carpenter/architect, did such a great job in maximizing every square inch of the cabin, so you fell like you're in a much larger place. I was blown away by the craftsmanship and eye for design. So comfy and I love to cook and was so impressed by the vast selection of cooking gear. The hot tub is lovely and the cabin sits up high, so you feel like you're up in a tree house. This cabin is our favorite place in Tahoe and we will be back. It's always sad to leave such a wonderful place...

The cabin is solid, strong and secure. The design and decoration are first rate and a perfect example of the "Tahoe" style. The kitchen was great if you like to cook and "eat in." The beds were very comfortable, sheets, towels etc.. were great! Tv and internet worked fine too! We enjoyed the very peaceful stone patio with nice gas grill, hot tub, comfy furniture and nice landscaping. We found the location to be very convenient for many activities. The home is off the main hwy.(quiet) and the neighborhood seems to be more permanent residents than rentals. The West shore and generally northern area of the Lake seem to be less commercialized than the South shore area. This area is not full of high rise casinos and fast food restaurants. Very relaxed and easy pace. Nice selection of local bakeries, shops and restaurants with excellent food. Two things I will mention that are not negative, but I think worthy of noting: 1. The stairs to the loft bedroom are quite steep and narrow (anyone kinda large or unstable on their feet would probably not want to plan on using the loft) and 2. as is clearly stated in the cabin info...there is only one shower; again, not a negative, just something to consider when thinking about daily necessities. One bonus, especially if you are a dog lover, is the pair of large chestnut dogs that occasionally visit the cabin. They are by no means a pest or intrusive, they are just the most gentle, adorable dogs you'll ever encounter. Our teenage daughters were disappointed if the dogs did not visit when we returned to the cabin after a day enjoying the lake, rivers, and mountains. Basically we were 100% satisfied with every aspect of the cabin and the rental companies prompt and easy correspondence. We fully recommend this cabin. It exceeded our expectations!

Sunnyside Cottage was a wonderful place to stay for our week in Tahoe. It was very near Tahoe City. It was in a great location that was near the lake, grocery store, and restaurants. The beds were super comfortable and the hot tub was nice. The cottage was very clean and well taken care of. We had four adults and a dog for the week and space was sufficient. There were just a few picky changes that could have made it a five star. Being from the South, we expected air condition and there wasn't any. (We didn't think to ask about it). The mini coffee pot only made two cups at a time, the towels were well used, and the couches were extremely firm. It would have been nice to have a microwave. However, we loved our stay and are already planning our return trip. We had a wonderful time! Tahoe is beautiful!

Nice little cabin - perfect for 4-6 people, though it will accommodate up to eight. Beautifully appointed inside and very nice garden/eating/lounging area outside. Good hiking (Tahoe Rim Trail) nearby. Quite location within walking distance of the lake, but sheltered from Highway 89 noise. Dog-friendly (though we didn't have dogs). Nice clean hot tub.

Our Sunnyside cottage was gorgeous. Especially enjoyed the outdoor hot tub under the stars. It was conveniently located and very beautifully landscaped. The rental company was very anxious to make sure that our stay was all that we hoped for. Great vacation!
