Sierra Tract Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath (Sleeps 6)

JAK's Place is a cozy family cabin located in the heart of South Lake Tahoe. It is only a few miles from the Heavenly Valley Ski area, four miles from historic Camp Richardson and a mile or two from the Lake. There are forest trails five blocks away for walking, biking, snow shoeing, or cross-country skiing. For those of you who like to throw the dice, we’re about three miles from the casinos. There is truly something for everyone.

Inside the cabin you will find movies, games, puzzles and books to enjoy. It's also just a really great place to hang out.

We love our little red cabin and are thrilled to share it with others. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

About Jennifer

JAK's Place was purchased in 2010 and is named after the owners, Jennifer, Abigail and Kevin.

Jennifer purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Jennifer chose Sierra Tract

We fell in love with the little red cabin when we stayed there for two weeks during the summer of 2010. We had no idea there was so much to do during the summer months and had an absolute blast cycling, hiking, paddle boarding and lounging on the beach. We were also amazed at how many things were available for our 5 year old daughter, like a great library, play grounds, and miniature golfing, just to name a few. Our dog Mollie also loves Tahoe, especially running in the meadow and frolicking in the Upper Truckee river, which is just a 10 minute walk from the cabin

Great little house with a lot of character

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for two nights and had a blast. There are plenty of games to keep you (or your kids) busy. The only TV is upstairs and there appears to be no cable - just Roku/Internet TV/Netflix which was fine by us, but if you want to catch the big game, this isn't the place to do it. Awesome location, right in the heart of South Lake Tahoe in a quiet neighborhood.

My boys and I loved it!

  • 5 of 5
I took my 2 boys, ages 9 and 6, to this cabin for a daddy/sons getaway for two nights in February '14 and we loved it! Clean, cozy, comfy quarters. I liked that I could open the doors between the bunk bed room and the other downstairs bedroom. That way it felt like we were all in one big room. The loft upstairs was great for watching movies, and there was a very fun and interesting assortment of DVDs on hand.

While staying here we enjoyed day trips to Adventure Mountain about a 20 minute drive from the cabin on Hwy 50. Many snowball fights later, we would come back to the cabin to warm up and relax, and I would cook dinner in the nicely appointed kitchen. Everything we needed was right there! The cabin is also walking distance to a few eateries and shops. One afternoon the boys and I walked to a nearby Chinese restaurant for lunch, which they quite enjoyed.

I would highly recommend this cabin for a small family getaway. The location is good, the price is right, and the owners are very easy to work with. This was my first time using Homeaway, and my experience couldn't have been better. Great customer service from the owners, who were always very responsive by email. And I got my deposit back almost immediately. They provided very easy directions to the cabin, plus a binder in the cabin filled with helpful ideas of where to go for meals, and all other wonderful Tahoe activities.

My boys still talk about this cabin, and our awesome 2 days in the snow. :)

Cosy cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying in this wonderful cabin. There was plenty of room for our family of three. The area is not far from the main street in South Lake Tahoe but in a quiet neighborhood. Close to the lake and stores, great location. The area is perfect for hiking, beautiful walks right near the cabin. No need to buy drinking water, its delicious right from the tap. The kitchen, living room and dining area are in one great room with the upstairs loft above. Lots of knotty pine, comfortable beds and furniture...the ideal cabin in the woods for families and couples who want a romantic getaway. The tv and wifi work well, we watched Netflix, Amazon instant videos (on our own accounts), and other Roku content. Theres so much to do, that we only watched tv in the evening before bed. We are planning to stay again next year. The owners of the cabin are very nice, easy to interact with. A lovely vacation!

Amazing experience!!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family of 5 stayed in this house and just got back. We had the greatest time! The owners were amazing and met all of our needs and then some. The cabin was within miles of anything you may want to visit in South Tahoe and was very pet friendly (our dogs loved the house and all of the trails nearby!). The cabin is stocked with just about anything you could possibly need or want. The only thing that could be a possible drawback is that is that it is very lacking in privacy. If you are on a family vacation and only looking for a place to lay your head, it is the perfect place for you! I had never intended to make Lake Tahoe a yearly vacation spot but this house has made me change my mind. Thanks so much!!! AMAZING!!!!

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5
We were super happy with our stay here this week! What a great location for us, close to everything we wanted to do. Great, friendly feeling neighborhood. Cute & homey inside. Was surprised to have great wifi & the kids loved the comfy chairs to watch movies upstairs in the loft. The entire cabin was very clean & well taken care of. Our upstairs loft bed was comfy & my kids loved having their own rooms downstairs (this is more like a 3 bedroom than a 2 bedroom in my opinion so a big bonus!) & said their beds were super comfy too. I was wondering if it would be too hot as we were going during the summer but it stayed cool enough inside during the day & we had the windows open upstairs at night & it kept it very comfortable. Plus they have 2 ceiling fans which I am sure helped.

We were especially happy with the service we received after my son left some biking clothes behind - the cleaning service let the manager, Davis know & by the next day they were setting up a way to get them back to us. They really cared & I was very grateful. You don't get great service like this all the time!

This is the kind of cabin I would want to own if we had our own cabin! We hope to go back again next summer!
