LOCATION
Located off North Upper Truckee in a quiet little neighborhood - you will be away from all road noise and the hustle bustle of the city. YET, you are still 5 mins from grocery stores and restaurants. You are also close to bottom of the summit so you will miss a lot of that going home traffic. Lake Tahoe is a short 10 minute drive and the casinos are about 25 mins away. Heavenly Ski Resort is 25 mins, Sierra at Tahoe is 15 mins and Kirkwood is 45 mins.

COUNTY RENTAL LAWS
(Pertains to all homes in Tahoe. Up to $2,000 fine and possible eviction if not followed.)
1. 10pm - 8am is the county quiet time for all rentals
2. Trash goes into the bear box only and is not to be left outside
3. We cannot host extra people at this home or allow parties.
4. No extra cars, parking on the street OR on the dirt.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO!
- DRIVEWAY: Driveway is narrow and best for 1 car horizontal. Then there are room for 2 more in the garage.
- QUIET NEIGHBORHOOD: This home is located in a quiet, residential neighborhood. In Tahoe, it’s so quiet at night that you could hear a pin drop. As a result, we prefer to host quiet groups that will abide by all of the county laws. We appreciated it!
- TRAVEL INSURANCE: We HIGHLY recommend that all of our lovely guests purchase travel insurance, as we normally do NOT refund for COVID, smoke, fires, weather, snow storms, road closures, etc. We cannot stress this enough.
- WINTER TRAVEL WARNING: During the Winter, it’s required by law that all vehicles in Tahoe carry chains, even 4WD vehicles. It is NOT recommended that you come in a mini van, Tesla or other low profile vehicle. Our roads are steep and icy so even when it’s not snowing, Tahoe is hard to navigate. We recommend SUVs, Subarus and Trucks with snow/all-terrain tires. We also recommend having some Winter driving experience.
- POWER OUTAGES: Power outages are VERY common in Tahoe. They are especially common during Winter storms. Tahoe homes do not have generators so if the power goes out, the heat might also go out. Coming to Tahoe during the Winter requires a lot of patience and a sense of adventure.
- NO AC: This home, like most in Tahoe, does not have AC but we do provide fans.
- HOME OWNER OWNED: This home is owned by a family or private owner and not by an investor, so you will be renting someone’s home. Grand Welcome does not own this home but helps the owner to manage it.
- HIGH FIRE RISK: Lake Tahoe is a high-risk fire area. Fireworks, wood fire pits, smoking/improper disposal of cigarette butts and charcoal BBQs are STRICTLY prohibited.
- BEARS: Bears and other wildlife frequent this area so make sure to lock up when you leave the home, always lock your car doors and view from afar.
- MOUNTAIN LIFE: Spiders, cobwebs and little mountain mice are common in the mountains. 
- BBQ/DECKS: The BBQ is not serviced and the decks are not shovelled in the winter due to the low temperatures and high snow levels.
- DAMAGE WAIVER: Built into your clean fee is an “Accidental Damage Waiver Policy”. You are covered for anything seen as accidental and anything seen as neglectful, you may be charged for. It’s best to report all damage to us when it occurs. We are pretty understanding!
- SECURITY: Most of our homes have exterior only security cameras and noise decibel monitoring systems to ensure we are in compliance with the county ordinance but we take our guests privacy VERY seriously. There is never indoor cameras and the exterior ones are not monitored. Most owners only look to see bears and snow levels 🙂
- SATISFACTION: If you are in anyway not satisfied, please text our local team as we prefer to handle issues when you are here to ensure your stay with us exceeds expectations! If we are alerted to issues after check out, you may not be refunded so it’s important to report them right away.
- REVIEWS: “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.” Same is true for reviews. We please ask that you have some grace and compassion when leaving them and we will do the same when we review you. Remember, that this is someones home before it’s a rental. The owners will see and take your review to heart. Very much appreciated! #spreadlovenothate

VHR Permit# 073185

Great spot!

by Richard C.
We had a great stay here. We came for a soccer tournament with another family and we all fit comfortable. There was 9 of us and all the kids had a blast. I would recommend this spot to everyone.
