We had a great time, we were greeted with a complimentary bottle of Red Cab. The house is very nicely equipped for multiple families with kids, the kitchen is well stocked and clean, the dinning table has a very rustic cabin feel with plenty of seating for 10 or more, the over sized leather couches are super comfortable even if needed to use as a bed for a nap or at night, the beautiful full wall of windows and doors lets in plenty of light as you relax with Forrest views and tranquility and opens to the large deck overlooking the quiet Court with various seating and dual fuel BBQ (perhaps a propane heater or firepit on the deck would be a nice addition though if allowed) the Flat screen Tv’s are all very large and mounted in every room with full cable, the king beds were comfy and the large kids bunk area provided many games and toys as well as room to sleep 4-6 in beds and more on the floor if you needed to, bathrooms were very clean and nicely appointed with ample supplies in the downstairs laundry, the hot tub off the master bedroom is very nice new with vast amounts of jets, LED lighting, as well as water fall feature and is great way to relax after the slopes, a day of walking around the village, or hiking. the shuttle service is prompt and friendly as well and easily accessed through the app… the fireplace is wood burning and you need to supply your own wood for that romantic relaxing ambiance… the speakers throughout the home are high end access through wifi (sonos) but we couldn’t figure out how to use all the zones… there are however many steps to get into the cabin as the front door is on the 2nd level, but only a problem if you have elderly or handicapped people in your group that don’t do well with stairs other than that it’s just a little work bringing in and taking out your luggage… had a great stay would definitely return again… downstairs can get a lil cold at night or upstairs gets hot if you run the heater

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a thoughtful review of your family’s time at Oxen Run hideout! We are so lucky to share our cabin with those that appreciate an elevated rental experience. I apologize that we left you only feeling 4.5 stars;). I wish we could offer a heater on the patio as well but the great location surrounded by the majesty of the Tahoe forest and our insurance don’t love this idea as much;) Thank you for your feedback on the heating as we always love the opportunity to improve wherever we can. As you can appreciate, we have made every effort to maintain the original cabin charm but add all modern conveniences and luxuries. Our installation of central heating and air are, however, still at the mercy of the upper and lower levels and the physics of heating and cooling! Thank you for pointing out the stairs to access the front door as they certainly are not ideal for those who struggle with mobility and a ranch style home would be best for those that don’t pair well with stairs for sure! We try to emphasize that in our rental agreement to be sure there are no surprises and have been fortunate so far that there have not been any disappoinments as a result! This home is a true mountain A frame configuration which lends so much of its character and spacious layout for multiple families to enjoy yet have privacy and a great gathering space!! Once again, thank you for sharing your experience, we are glad you enjoyed your stay and appreciate your very candid feedback!
