About Don

Our family takes great pride in and loves this house where we have been gathering for special occasions for generations. Most of our guests grow to feel the same way and come back year-after-year. Many of them have started to refer to the Cozy Nostra Lodge as 'our house.'

Why Don chose Al Tahoe

Our family has enjoyed Tahoe for generations. Each season of the year is different and has unique aspects and allure. Just when you start to think that you like it in winter the best you have a knock-out summer experience that starts the debate all over again. When you walk into the Cozy Nostra Lodge you feel immediately like you've come back home.

What makes this cabin unique

Our house is spacious and spread out which is good for large family groups to be able to have their 'own space' yet feel that they are a part of the group. The openness of the floor plan let's you be able to see what is going on yet not be on top of one another. Gathering around the large dining room table for special meals often turns into hours of conversation, joke telling, friendly teasing and wine drinking, of course.

Fun had by all!

  • 5 of 5

Walking in the front door I breathe a sigh of relief, the Cozy Nostra Lodge is spacious, comfortable, clean, and family oriented. Our large family can spread out and still have plenty of room for our 5 grandchildren to play on the living room floor. The backyard is a perfect space to send the kids out for a snowball fight. We have stayed at many cabins in Tahoe and none have ever felt this much like home. Thank you to the great hosts.

The Cosiest of Cottages!

  • 5 of 5

8 of us rented this house for a long weekend a couple weeks ago and LOVED it! They don't skimp on anything in this place, plenty of everything you could need, even down to 2 coffee makers which came in so handy. We walked to the beach everyday, which is not only just a couple blocks away but a beautiful walk as well. Another little secret we discovered was, about a block away, there's the best authentic Mexican restraunt that we really enjoyed.

The beds are super comfortable and its rustic and perfect for a large group. I can guarantee we'll be back..

Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My family takes an annual pilgrimage to South Lake Tahoe every winter and this was, by far, our favorite cabin we've stayed at in the last few years! We have a big family and this cabin was perfect for us! As we walked in the door, it felt very homely and welcoming. The kids spent most of the time at home curled up with playing cards and their iPads next to the fireplace, which was fully stocked with firewood. This cabin comes with everything from tools to utensils, and nifty antique items like a 1920's telephone and ski gear on the walls, which made my grandma very nostalgic! The private backyard is spacious and even though it was freezing outside during our visit, the grownups were able to sit and talk around the chiminea while my dad was grilling BBQ. My favorite spot was definitely the cute honeymoon suite situated above the kitchen. It was a very cozy room and my boyfriend got hooked on the first 2 seasons of House of Cards, which he found in the DVD library downstairs. Another great thing about this cabin is that it's in a centralized location so the beach was just blocks down and there are sandwich spots and convenient stores around the corner. My family and I will definitely be staying at this cabin again, maybe during the summertime, and obviously highly recommend it to others!

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

This is by far my favorite place to stay while visiting beautiful South Lake Tahoe. This cabin is so homey , cozy , comfy that you may find it hard to resist curling up by the wood burning stove and pulling out a book. Everything you may need is right at your fingertips. The backyard is also very nice. It's a great place to sit watching and listening to nature while enjoying a glass of wine. The backyard is pretty private which is a nice touch. The kitchen is big and loaded with everything you may need to cook for 2 or 20. Many amenities are available withing walking distance . Gift stores, food and of course the beautiful lake. I definetly recommend staying here .

Perfect cabin for my family!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is situated in a perfect location for myself, my children, and my grandchildren. It is close to a skating rink, close to the lake, close to the casinos,close to grocery stores, restaurants, and ski lifts. As soon as I got there I was relaxed and ready to spend quiet time in the backyard, visiting with friends and family. The bathrooms and appliances are all updated and in great working condition. Lots of dishes, pots and pans to serve many. I love that the "honeymoon suite" is separated from the other 4 bedrooms so if I want to take a nap, the family doesn't need to worry about being quiet for me.

Beautiful, comfortable... can't wait to go again!

  • 5 of 5

This was our home away from home for a week, with that comfortable, rustic cabin feel. Perfect for the family gathering we had. My only disappointment, nothing related to the cabin, was that we didn't enjoy enough relax time there due to the week loaded with wedding activities. This only means we can't wait to go back for a relaxing family stay. All in our group loved the place. A great location, away from the busy state line, yet a very short drive when you wanted to go. It's a very relaxing short walk to the lake thru the neighborhood. The charm of the cabin is everything you could ask for. The backyard especially nice, no worries of the grandkids playing out back, BBQ, picnic table and large area with chairs for everyone to relax with morning coffee or evening wind-down. We couldn't have found a better place, and looking forward to when we can return. Thank you so much!
