The cottage is only 2 blocks from the lake - no need to drive and pay the parking fee at the Marina! The cabin had a homey feel and our daughter had a lot of fun going up to the loft or just hanging out in the yard. There were plenty of towels for the 3 of us and the kitchen was well-equipped - we ate in most of the time because it was more relaxing than going out - we even had a BBQ and dined al fresco in the back yard. We stayed there for 5 days and it feels like it's too short! Too bad we didnt get to go on a cruise on the Tahoe Queen ( I think it hit a sandbar or something the day we got there) but we had fun just laying on the sand or taking a dip in the beach when it wasnt too cold. We also rented out a pedal boat and kayak, and also went fishing at the nearby trout farm. All in all it was a very relaxing stay... i'm already planning our next getaway, maybe in the fall :) Thanks Gabby! Keep up the good work in maintaining the cabin!
