About Lisa and John McDonald

Came to Tahoe for a one week vacation in 1964 and stayed. Married and raised 3 boys here. Love the pure air, pure water, healthy environment

Lisa and John McDonald purchased this cabin in 1978

Why Lisa and John McDonald chose Tahoe Vista

Located within the Old Brockway Golf Course in one of the oldest neighborhoods at Tahoe, established in 1926, and developed by Henry Comstock of the Virginia City Mother Load era. Centrally located to all the activity yet remains private, surrounded by over a dozen 100 foot tall pine trees.

What makes this cabin unique

Private driveway, yard, and patio with gas BBQ tucked in and surrounded by Aspens. The complete kitchen provides opportunity to create great meals. The ski lift swing in the front garden/yard came from Tahoe Donner Ski.

Delightful, Cozy Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here during a week-long mountain biking vacation. It was completely delightful! Beautifully equipped and cozy, the cabin had everything we needed and more. It's tucked away in a forested neighborhood walking distance to shops, restaurants and the beach, yet you're still in the woods. Close to major ski areas, great hiking, mountain biking & kayaking (and space for your gear, too!) Quiet & private, with nicely maintained grounds. The owners are very friendly & helpful. A perfect getaway for a couple or a couple of friends. We can't wait to come back!

Perfect Getaway Cabin!

  • 4 of 5
My friend and I really enjoyed this cabin which is fairly priced and has everything you will need for a relaxing stay. It is clean, well-located and big enough for two or three. The owners live right next door and are very friendly and helpful, yet not invasive of one's privacy.

As others have mentioned, the mattress is very soft, so if you like a firm mattress, use the automatically inflatable air bed. I used it and found it very comfortable. My friend liked the queen-sized bed.
I recommend you stay at this cabin because it's a perfect getaway cabin in a gorgeous area.

Better than expected!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first experience renting a cabin. My husband and I just wanted something quant. This more than met our expectations. The property is very clean and well stocked with many necessities. The owners are wonderful people and we enjoyed them very much. I would recommend this property to any couple that just wants something cozy and cute. We went to the 4th of July crafts fair, which is in walking distance. Grocery store is within walking distance also. When we return to Lake Tahoe, we will definitely rent from these owners again. Our stay at the Tahoe Pinewood was wonderful.

Quiet, inexpensive getaway

  • 4 of 5
My fiance and I stayed here for three nights for a ski weekend. I have very high standards when it comes to cleanliness and I was satisfied. I could tell that they do deep cleaning here. The hardwood floors that run throughout the kitchen and bathroom are in good condition. The decor is rustic/country-like so if you prefer a more modern, sleek decor this place isn't for you. For cooks, the ceramic stove and gas grill were in good condition. The kitchen was stocked with pots and pans, as well as coffee and tea. We found the comfort of the bed to be OK. The linens were OK, too. This could be that we're used to staying in four star hotels with high quality linens and extremely comfy beds.

This is a studio-like apartment. By the third night I did feel a little claustrophobic. My fiance did not.

Overall, I would recommend if you're looking for a quiet, low-key, private, inexpensive, ski weekend.

One more thing, the shower space was small so if you're similar in size to say James Gandolfini or Kathy Bates, it won't be a comfortable experience.

PERFECT!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
I reserved this cabin with a image in mind and when we arrived it was everything I had imagined. Although there were houses right next door, it was incredibly quiet and tucked back off the road. The store was close so we could get groceries to make dinner and the owner was incredible. She gave us ideas of what hikes to do around the area. I highly recommend this cabin. It really was everything I had picture for our first vacation together alone.
