About Vicki Govaars

We are the second generation of the Burton family to own the home our father had built in 1970-71. As children we vacationed on the same street at a home owned by a friend. We grew up loving this house and all of the fun family times it represents. Now our children have made memories skiing and snowboarding at Homewood Resort, hiking Tahoe trails, swimming in Lake Tahoe, rafting the Truckee River and riding their bikes to Sugar Pine Point.

Vicki Govaars purchased this cabin in 1971

Why Vicki Govaars chose Homewood

Our Dad hand picked the location of this house for the level entry, treehouse view, and homeowners beach and pier. He designed the inside of our home for a large family using an open-room high ceiling concept that has stood the test of time. The plan included an entry 'mud-room' for all our gear and the wood room directly below it to hold exactly one cord of wood stacked from floor to ceiling along the back wall.

What makes this cabin unique

The home is family-friendly with forest views and on a quiet cul-de-sac street in Tahoe Swiss Village. It is in a beautiful neighborhood that has a private homeowners beach and pier. It is on the West Shore, 'the best shore' of Lake Tahoe.

Warm, welcoming cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this comfortable cabin. It has all the amenities you need to make for an easy and relaxing stay. Great living space to cozy up with friends and family. Location is ideal, with a quiet street surrounded by beautiful pine trees and the lake within walking distance. The owners were super easy to work with, efficient and kind.

We loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

We had two families with kids at different ages in Tahoe. This place worked perfect for us. It was very clean, and had a large open entertaining area. We could have 4 or 5 people working in the kitchen, kids playing cards at the table, and others (my husband and brother-in-law) on their laptops all at the same time with plenty of room. Beds were comfortable and we appreciated the down comforters and pillows. The washer and dryer came in handy more times than I thought I would need also. The kids liked the big flat screen TV (of course) and the 100's of videos at the cabin. It was great to have a TV downstairs also so the adults could chill and listen to music.

We were very close to the private beach and would send the kids down to jump off the dock while we'd talk or read a book in the sand. Tahoe City is close, they have some nice shops and restaurants. We ate at Jake's on the Lake. Sunnyside only a couple miles away and we could have drinks on their huge deck while the kids fished for crawdads. We also rented a ski boat their one day.

Great price! We'll rent again in the winter when we can go sledding and skiing... I hear Homewood is a nice resort.

A good house, has sceaky floors. A little dusty. The balcony is nice and big, with a bench. Lots of great movies for both adults and kids to watch. Very roomy. In a nice quite community. The private pier is great, has a small beach, but the floor of the water has rocks everywhere. Great house to go with family or share with friends.

We had a fabulous time. The house was perfect for a family (or 2) with kids. The private dock and beach is very close. We walked down several times a day. There is lots of parking at the dock too, if you need to drive. The open kitchen allowed us to cook and be part of the group at the same time. Comfortable beds, nice to have down comforter. Big deck with BBQ.

This cabin is great for families. It is located on a very quiet and private street which dead ends not far from the cabin. The spacious open main floor allows for sizable family activities. A cozy stone fireplace is great for cold evenings and the large dining table allows plenty of seating. The downstairs bedrooms feature one with built-in bunk beds plus 2 other rooms that would be comfortable for 2 persons each.It allows for easy walking access to the dock/beach.A convenient mudroom at front door helps to keep the cabin clean.
