Meeks Bay House Rental Photos and Description

Magical West Shore: Family Home with excellent reviews

ENJOY SPECTACULAR VIEWS and the magical

West Shore of Lake Tahoe

WE ARE TAKING REQUESTS FOR SUMMER

ONE WEEK STAYS NOW.

GET YOUR REQUEST IN BEFORE DATES ARE ALL BOOKED UP!!

FRIDAY TO FRIDAY ONLY IN PEAK SUMMER (MID-JUNE-AUG)

Get away from the crowds and enjoy the amazing cobalt blue lake and the special Meeks Bay Beach and resort which is right near our home. The spectacular west shore is the best shore.

Come and relax at our 4 bedroom two bath home with gorgeous views of Lake Tahoe. We have an open kitchen and living room area with two large decks overlooking the lake. The layout makes for a great place to relax with your whole family. Soft, quiet wall-to-wall carpeting throughout the home; comfortable beds

(new king and queen beds!) all with down comforters and soft cotton sheets. Located in a quiet residential neighborhood near entrance to Meeks Bay Beach and resort. In the warm seasons, walk to the best white sand beach on the lake and ski/snowboard at nearby resorts. Very close to paved bicycle/walking/jogging trail that goes all the way to Tahoe City. Near Sugar Pine Point state park and the entrance to Desolation wilderness trail. In winter enjoy amazing snowy views and nearby ski and sledding areas.

We always wish we could stay longer. This is truly a home you can settle into. We sure have...our father built the cabin in 1977 and it has been in our family ever since. We rent only to help us with maintenance and upkeep costs. We love our family cabin.

Enjoy the high sierras in a place that will feel like your home.

Once here, you can gaze upon spectacular Lake Tahoe and the surrounding mountains without getting in your car by just sitting on the decks or relaxing in the kitchen/living room area. A true escape!

Fall and winter: a beautiful time of year to stay on the west shore.

Are you wondering about how to find our reviews???

OUR GUESTBOOK REVIEWS here in this website are copied verbatim directly from our guestbook at the cabin. HomeAway website recently changed procedures and does not post an owner's guestbook reviews in the "reviews" or "review count" section anymore. :(

We have over 20 ALL-EXCELLENT REVIEWS AS OF Spring 2015 in our cabin guestbook. They are all handwritten by our valued guests.

HOW TO READ THEM: Scroll down on this main HomeAway page about our home go to the little box that says "Monica"

--> click on "about Monica", that is where HomeAway has put all of our guestbook reviews posted for you to read.

About Monica

The cabin is co-owned by two sisters. Our father bought the lot in mid-seventies after spending about 30 years vacationing every summer at the nearby Meeks Bay resort. He completed cabin construction in 1977 and it has been in the family ever since.

Staying at the cabin will feel like home because it is a home.

We all stay as much as possible to enjoy all the seasons on the magical west shore. We rent out the cabin to help us with the ownership costs. I work in higher education and try to enjoy our home as much as possible !

Monica purchased this house in 1977

Why Monica chose Meeks Bay

if you want the feel of a real home, and not a hotel, cookie cutter condo, or a cold, sleek rental-only house, this is the place for you. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. If you are looking for a non-party, no late night noise area, you have found it. Top that off with the spectacular lake view that is everywhere, a great walk down to the white sand beach at Meeks Bay, and you have your ideal vacation.

What makes this house unique

You will love the view, which is inescapable from almost every room.

The majestic mountains are right there also, with Rubicon Peak looming up right outside off in the distance. Watch the weather changes over the entire lake from our cozy couch, or sitting on our decks.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much!!! WE had such a great time at your house. We really enjoyed the view!! It was very beautiful when the moon shown over the water. We went to the fire sign cafe one morning for breakfast. It was so good one afternoon we went down to Meeks bay and rented a paddle board. That was lots of fun. It was fun when all three of us girls went on together… Not so fun when we tipped over!!!We went on many beautiful hikes to bliss, eagles fall, and Vikings. There was a rainbow over the water. While it rained we drove to Tahoe city and walked to get ice cream!! It was fun!!! Thanks again!!!

Our Tahoe style family cabin is located close to the lake up on the hillside above Emerald Bay Road. The neighborhood is relatively small and quiet. During peak times of day in summer you can hear some road noise from below. Inside the house is very quiet and comfortable. The area surrounding the cabin is forested and beautiful. We look out over all of Lake Tahoe and Meeks Bay Beach and Resort, which has paddle boats, kayaks, power boats, swimming, snack bar and more. You can walk down our pathway right next to the house that leads you to the best white sand beach in Tahoe at Meeks Bay. In the summer months you will probably spend your entire day down at Meeks!! Walk down with your early morning coffee and a chair! The best place in the world to 'wake up' !

It is especially wonderful sitting on the beach right at the water's edge in the late afternoon early evening for your own 'happy hour' snacks and beverages.

There is a volleyball net up at Meeks all summer that is a great attraction for kids and adults also.

Nearby is an excellent paved bicycle/walking path that runs all the way to Tahoe City. Skiing is nearby too at Homewood resort. We are two miles from Tahoma, a little lake village with a small grocery and restaurant. Less than a mile is the start of the Desolation Trail which leads you into a spectacular wilderness area for walks and hikes.
