Welcome to Carolyn’s Great Family Cabin located in the quiet historic Bijou Pines. Our neighborhood has pine-tree lined streets, historic cabins, minimal traffic and a woodsy atmosphere making it a great place to take a stroll or ride a bike. Then back at the cabin you can continue to enjoy the outdoors by relaxing on the front porch or the backyard deck in our spacious yard. Enjoy barbecuing, a bottle of wine, a hot cup of coffee or watching the kids play while feeling right at home.

The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need for preparing your home cooked meals. The large yet cozy living room with knotty pine walls and a high ceiling has a beautiful old stone/rock wood burning fireplace and plenty of seating. Snuggle up, listen to music, watch a movie or visit with family and friends for those lasting memories.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Carolyn's cabin is awesome and has everything you will need - I mean everything! We had a great time at Lake Tahoe and the cabin was the perfect place to come back to after a day on the lake. Carolyn is great too and we can't wait to go back. -----------------------Guest Submitted comments in our guestbook link http://www.homeawayconnect.com/guestbook.cfm?pid=59323

CAROLYN'S CABIN HAS "FAMILY" WRITTEN ALL OVER IT!

Carolyn's Cabin has "Family" written all over it!
  • 5 of 5
Looking through the listings I was looking for a place that could accommodate 6+, a pet, and had a good location. Carolyn's Cabin looked like the perfect choice...boy was I underestimating it. Everything about this place was refreshing; from it's comfortable cabin feel, amenities, expansive backyard, and comfy beds to it's prime location that is walking distance to the beach, restaurants and only a few minutes from the Casinos. What topped it all off was Carolyn, very friendly and wanting to make your stay at her Cabin everything you are looking for. Our family had a great trip and stay at this Cabin. Thank you Carolyn!

COMFORT AND LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This cozy cabin is located in the quiet but convenient Bijou neighborhood which makes it great for all activities. We were able to walk to the newly refurbished El Dorado Beach to enjoy water sports and ice cream, as well as to Safeway and other stores.
The cabin is equipted with everything you need to be comfortably at home. The kitchen has all the pots/pans and utensils to cook a great meal. We enjoyed breakfasts al fresco on the picnic table in the backyard.
This was my third time renting from Carolyn and she is a pleasure to work with; she is very responsive to inquiries and emails or phones promptly. We'll be back.

Loved this cabin, Carolyn was very considerate and very nice to offer cabin a day before the 1st snow storm of the year. The cabin was old but well kept and clean. Carolyn is always available for any questions and tips how to go around the area.The photos were very accurate. It was close to everything.
We were greeted by first fresh powder snow of the year, i later realized that skiing is not for me and i enjoyed tubing and sledding more LOL but we really enjoyed my stay, too bad we can't stay longer.. I will definitely recommend this cabin to friends and family, will try to come back summertime and will stay for a week.

Thanks Carolyn.

CAROLYN'S GREAT FAMILY CABIN - FANTASTIC!

Carolyn's Great Family Cabin - Fantastic!
  • 5 of 5
I just spent a girls weekend at Carolyn's family cabin. It is in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance to the lake. The cabin has all the amenities that you could want and seriously,I mean, all amenities. We celebrated a birthday during our stay and even found birthday candles in a kitchen drawer. The house is clean and well maintained. There is a lovely deck with table and chairs in the huge backyard. I highly recommend this cabin. It's a wonderful place to stay and the owner is very easy to work with. I'm already thinking about planning my next extended weekend there.

GREAT LOCATION!

  • 4 of 5
My family and my sons family stayed over 4th of July week. There were 4 adults and 4 kids aged between 2-6. We all had an amazing time. The weather was perfect and the beach, water and Safeway were less than 10 minute walk away.
A few notes....
The cabin is clean, but a bit dated. The rates were significantly less than other places we looked at, so we overlooked the dated remodeling (which is common with the more affordable cabins in Tahoe). The beds are comfortable, and there were plenty of blankets and bedding.
The staircase is narrow and should be navigated carefully.
The top bunk bed does not have a proper rail, but luckily we packed one and used that to keep our little one safe.
The backyard is HUGE and the kids played for hours in it! It was a nice 'babysitter' while we prepared meals and packed up for day trips.
The fridge is left completely empty, so don't expect any condiments when you arrive. On our trip, the dry cabinet was also lacking any cooking or olive oil, so we had to purchase those as well. I guess it depends on who stays there before you.
There was a completely full container of fresh, whole coffee beans and a grinder in the kitchen! All of the adults loved that!!
There are plenty of pots and pans, but the kitchen itself is a bit cramped. We ate all of our meals outside on the large table there (which was perfect for us anyway. The weather was amazing!).
Frank and Carolyn are very accommodating, although it was strange to see Frank on the front porch putting the trash away. We had also wanted to know where beaches were and both Frank and Carolyn showed up at the property to hand us a brochure with information. This was both pleasant and uncomfortable. I did not expect to see them, and it seems protocol to give tenants some notice before showing up unannounced. Again, they were trying to be helpful, and they really are nice...but it was a bit strange for all of us in our party.
All in all, we really enjoyed our stay at the cabin and found it to be a very pleasant and comfortable experience.

Owner's Response: We always like to address our guest’s suggestions so to improve our service. Most guests do not want to eat food items left by other guests, not knowing if they are sanitary. We agree and therefore clean out all leftover food items and oil. Our cabin is located in Bijou Pines, one of a few remaining Historic Neighborhoods. We work very hard at maintaining the cabin in it's "Vintage" condition to provide the guests with that "Old Timey Cabin" ambiance. So many guests that arrive from the city appreciate the decor and historic architecture. Of course like our guest stated the beds and linens are updated for comfort. I’d like to further add that all appliances are in good working order.

We happened to be next door at our other cabin on the day our guest mentioned. When we were not able to reach them on the phone we walked over to share with them the information they requested on the local beaches. We actually drove to Pope Beach to obtain a pamphlet for them. It was not our intention to intrude on our guests and have many that return year after year. Carolyn & Frank
