Why Mike Kohn chose Rancho Bijou
I grew up close to South Lake Tahoe and plan to retire there. The weather is great, lots of year round indoor and outdoor activities. The local people are very friendly.

Comfortable for Big Group
This home worked for us in almost every way. It was conveniently located in the center of town, yet in a quiet neighborhood surrounded by tall pines. It was clean and had all the amenities. Beds were comfortable! A great time was had by all.
Old but functional
I guess you'd know what to expect when you see a SFH in South Lake Tahoe to be in this price range: there're bound to be some compromises. It's a great location, very close to everything SLT has to offer. It's clean throughout. The compromise is that pretty everything in the house is old - all functional, just old. It's a great hit for a budget getaway - and I'll likely choose it again for a random boring long weekend. Just keep your expectations in the reasonable range.
A couple of improvements desired:
1, have some shampoo for at least the first night. It's no surprise that many people would arrive late on a Friday, and it's tough to find out there's no shampoo when stores are pretty much all closed.
2, hot tub water is not clean. It has a slight smell and you can see gunk floating around after turning on the jet. Seems like the circulation filter is broken or something.
Oh and the master bedroom is really challenging to fully utilize - likely nothing can be easily done but for you renters just keep it in mind. It has 4 beds including two bunk beds so the room itself can sleep 8 if you want, BUT it has an open style bathroom, completely open... so, hard to arrange.
Overall a good value stay.
Thank you for staying at my home, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay.
My hot tub is professionally maintained on a weekely basis and there were no tenants occupying the property prior to your entry. If you had contacted me about the Hot Tub the maintance company will service it on the same day.
Again, thank you for staying at my South Lake Tahoe Vacation Home.
Love Mikes place!
Had our third annual trip to Mikes place this year. It is a perfect spot for our group. Large, well stocked kitchen, plenty of beds, hot tub and indoor tub are great amenities. Kind of a funky set up in the main bedroom, but it allows 10 guests to sleep on a bed. Will most likely return next year!
Mike & Judy Kohn's Cabin
Cabin was exceptional, and Mike is an amazing host in that he promptly responded to questions and went above and beyond by providing helpful suggestions to make our stay even more enjoyable. I highly recommend renting the cabin.
Thank you for the wonderful review! I’m very happy you enjoyed your vacation in South Lake Tahoe.
An amazing ski trip in an awesome cabin
Mike's cabin might have a bit of a "rustic cabin" feel to it, but everything in the cabin is amazingly well maintained. There was plenty of space for our group and the amenities here were awesome! We will definitely be looking to rent this again for our trip next year.
Thank you for the great review, I'm happy you enjoyed your South Lake Tahoe winter vacation!
Big house in a great location
We had some serious trouble getting there due to weather and traffic, but our stay was nice. The house is large and clean and the location is perfect for skiing at Heavenly or hanging out in town. The master/large bedroom is a bit odd as is has a bunch of beds, a big tub out in the open, and a shower and bathroom behind a curtain. It's all usable, but takes a little effort to have some privacy. We would stay again.
I'm sorry the road was closed due to excessive snow. I'm glad you were able to make it to Tahoe eventually!
