Additional note this toilet area is tightly built like being on a boat, so may not be best for larger individuals.

Beautiful Backyard!
June 2020
My mom and I stayed for a few days, to get out of the city. This was the perfect little home for the 2 of us. The backyard was my favorite part. So beautiful and peaceful. We were very comfortable.

Cute Cottage!
January 2020
Great location, very cute cottage and had a wonderful time, but it's getting a 'little' tired and frayed around the edges. With that said, it is still highly recommended!

Super cute place! Loved how you could walk to Longs Beach
August 2018
We loved how close it was to town. The kayak was awesome. We rode the bikes everyday. I love TAHOE:)

Perfectly appointed, magical Gingerbread house!
September 2018
Perfectly appointed, magical Gingerbread house! The attention to detail with amenities and decor is phenomenal. The location is ideal for dining and shopping. We did not kayak, but we enjoyed the bikes. The backyard is lovely and we enjoyed the deck most all the week we were here. It was immaculate when we arrived and we left it the same way. I can not recommend this rental highly enough nor the property managers, who were always helpful. The Gingerbread cottage rocks!

The Gingerbread Cottage is wonderful. We enjoyed every moment of our visit.
From the kayaks to the bicycles, the amenities are outstanding. The owner has thought of every comfort.
We truly loved our stay here and highly recommend.

The house is as cute as it looks in the photos! I don’t think the photos do the yard justice, it is really nice out there! Very close to the beach, and anything you’d need!
