About Thomas Fairbanks

We are local business owners who have been enjoying life in Tahoe for 14 years.

Thomas Fairbanks purchased this house in 2005

Why Thomas Fairbanks chose Tahoe City

The West Shore is our favorite part of Tahoe—there is no better location! The views of the lake from this side are beautiful, and so close to some of our favorites areas of Tahoe—Truckee, Squaw Valley and Emerald Bay. We can be hiking, mountain biking, or cross-country skiing through ten national forest regions with less than five minutes walking or driving.

The location itself is just so perfect… just five houses up from the main road and minutes from Tahoe City, it’s close to everything yet stays so quiet and comfortably secluded. When we don’t feel like making the 5-minute “trek” into town, the Natural Moon health food store and café, Tahoe House Bakery and Farmer’s Market (on Thursdays) are even closer and more fun for high-quality natural and organic grocery shopping. Obexer’s cute little market and café in Homewood is also a good place for staples and many organic health-food options.

For restaurants, there are so many wonderful places to eat while looking out over the river or the lake—all so close—but nothing is more wonderful than meandering just one block down, on the bike path across from the lake, to the local Fire Sign Café and endlessly popular Sunnyside restaurant.

What makes this house unique

On a warm spring or summer day, it’s a beautiful experience to mosey one block down the bike path along the lake, smelling the pine trees and enjoying the local flowers, to the Sunnyside Restaurant and Firesign Cafe. In the winter, the same walk is just as much fun—being just one block away, the brisk weather feels invigorating, and provides a dramatic backdrop to the cozy, warm restaurants once you’re inside.

Everyone loves Sunnyside, with their deck and vast expanse of windows looking out over the lake—a wonderful place to relax and watch the sun set. (Their chocolate lava cake is also to die for.) But for breakfast and lunch, we just adore the Fire Sign Café. Their restaurant and annex are both built in the charming, classic Tahoe woodsy style. In the warm weather you can also eat on their deck, looking over a lovely, small lot filled with grass, trees and flowers. The Fire Sign makes the best coffee, their portions are generous, and their food is delicious. Even waiting for a table there is fun—on busy weekends, we enjoy a coffee while we wait in the delightful restaurant annex, playing the board games or reading the books provided.

Our home was designed to bring the feeling of Tahoe inside, in an elegant and unique way. The two double-sided glass doors out to the deck and yard downstairs, and the bay windows upstairs, all give an open, beautiful view to the surrounding, 100-foot pine trees. Inside, we’ve kept the colors warm and natural, with lots of honey- and amber-shaded wood, natural hand-blown glass lights, rustic antique doorknobs, and accents and tiling in rich shades of green, wine, and browns. We hope you’ll enjoy all the special touches that we’ve added for an elegant, modern, yet organic feeling. Of course, the house is fun, too! Our spacious outdoor deck, hot tub, large LED Smart TV, and generous living/dining room area all offer lots of entertainment for gatherings of friends and family, large and small.

wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just as described on on the website. It was very clean and cozy. We stayed with our 4 children and there was plenty of space both inside and out. Being that we stayed with our children the only thing I would recommend is to maybe have a broom on hand. I went out and bought myself a swiffer, not a big deal I personally just like to be able to sweep daily. Other than that the cabin was well stocked with things such as toilet paper, trash bags, linens, utensils etc. There was nothing I would have changed about the cabin or its location. It was nice to see that the owners read the reviews and made necessary changes like adding reading lights throughout or Adding hanging racks for clothes in a room with no closet. The owners also took the time to make a scrapbook of local restaurant ,stores, bars etc along with a map and menus which I thought was very thoughtful and convenient. Everyone including the kids absolutely loved this place. While there we got the best of both seasons in Tahoe. One day was beautiful and we were able to walk down to the lake as well as walk a nearby trail. The next day we woke up to a blanket of snow. The kids absolutely had a blast. There was plenty of extra property space behind the cabin so the kids were able to build a snowman and have some snowball fights. I couldn't have asked for a better trip or a better location. This cabin was perfect I can't wait till I can rent it again.

Nice house. Good location.

  • 4 of 5

Rented this house for a birthday weekend celebration for our family and in-laws. The house fit the group perfectly, and other than a few hiccups things went well.

Had to request lawn furniture be placed outside as well as the bbq, for 75' weekend, as unfortunately there was no snow. The owners were accommodating about this request, which was much appreciated.

Everyone loved the hot tub and the quality of the house.

There were plenty of linens and blankets for the seven of us. Unfortunately, the kitchen was only stocked with equipment for light cooking, no stock pot, minimal pots and pans.

Also there is only one garbage bag in the kitchen for the weekend for 7 people. I recommend picking your own up before you arrive as additionals are not supplied.

All in all a wonderful weekend. Hiked to the falls at fallen leaf lake, and enjoyed wonderful family meals.

Was a wonderful happy weekend, in spite of a few glitches.

Much enjoyed.

Cute - quaint - would stay again!

  • 5 of 5

We really liked this cabin - despite the lack of snow in N. Lake Tahoe this year. Still plenty to do for a family with young kids. It is literally just a few miles from Homewood, and very close to Alpine & Squaw. We didn't ski, but visited the resorts anyway. The place was perfect for us, my in-laws, and our two small children. Inlaws stayed in the downstairs room, and the kids had their own room upstairs across from ours. The hot tub was a superb way to the end the evening each night, and we enjoyed the fireplace/heaters. It had everything we needed and was kept up nicely. We would love to rent it again ~ same time next year!

Fun Birthday!

  • 4 of 5

We rented this property Friday - Today. It was a celebration of our daughter's 23rd. birthday. We were all quite comfortable, especially while in the hot tub. One word for future visitors is to bring dish and laundry soap. We were able to do a great deal of cooking. Plenty of dishware and silverware. Soooo nice to not have to go out for every meal. Only when one wants to. Convenient location. Calm neighborhood. Would recommend.

Nice cabin w great hot tub. Generally very nice - only problem worth noting is that the cabin lighting is very poor for reading - we all ended up using indiv headlamps to be able to see . . . other than that - great stay !
