Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I had the pleasure of spending a week in Lake Tahoe during the first week of August and got to experience Tom's and Brian's cozy cabin. It truly met/exceeded our expectations.

The Burke's have gone out of their way to assure a comfortable and friendly environment . . . the way they have decorated the place was really impressive. The cabin is like an oversized RV, which isn't a bad thing. We had the space we needed and were very comfortable. The floor plan has ample space for the bedroom, living and kitchen/dining areas. We found everything we needed to cook breakfast and appetizers (we feel making lunch/dinner should be left to the experts) and all other necessities for vacation living were there. Although access to the internet was appreciated, we did our best to enjoy the solitude of being lost.

Where there was an abundance of people up in Tahoe at this time, the location of the cabin was far enough away from the hustle/bustle of activity to allow us our own little world of peace and quiet. We started every day with a peaceful cup of coffee in the morning on their patio/porch and ended every day sitting in those same chairs reflecting on the day's events. We are golfers, so played golf a lot (many options); we enjoyed great meals with a nice variety of cuisines within a very short driving distance, we took a number of walks in the surrounding area (felt very safe) and managed a little fun at a couple of the casinos, again not too far away. Lots to do and the smell of those pines ALWAYS blows us away.

We will definitely be going back . . .

  • 5 of 5

Located 20 minutes from Heavenly this cabin suited our needs perfectly. Equipped with everything you need. Instructions for what to do before you leave were clearly written in a checklist. Great wifi. Everything labeled that needed labeled. Has a coffee maker for those needing coffee first thing in the morning. We would definitely stay here if returning to the area!

Two nights of peace & quiet in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for my wife & I and our two children. Our four year old son quickly established the sleeping arrangements when we arrived: he & dad would sleep in the loft and mom & his baby sister would sleep in the bedroom!

The cabin is well stocked, clean and comfortable. I contacted Tom vie email during our stay & he was prompt and courteous in our correspondence. We dined at Passaretti's and Lake Tahoe Pizza Company for a couple of dinners. The food was excellent.

Overall we had excellent stay in this cozy cabin & enjoyed South Lake Tahoe!

Owner's Response: As always, we enjoy getting great reviews like this one from Rodney. We try and maintain a cabin that anyone would be comfortable staying at. We are heading to the cabin ourselves tomorrow to enjoy the beauty of Lake Tahoe (don't get to go as often as we would like because we are usually booked pretty tight). It is a real pleasure to host such great guests as Rodney and his family. Come back and visit anytime, you are always welcome. Regards, Tom

Amazing winter get away in a cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I planned a week vacation at this amazingly cute cabin and loved every minute of it! First off the owners of this cabin are easy to work with and very nice! The location of the cabin was perfect for us to go play in the snow and run to a store for groceries or board games. It is in a great location if you plan on going to any of the snow resorts to board and close to restaurants if you choose not to cook. There is a cute little patio and area with a bbq for a little outdoor time. It is surrounded by trees and a few other cabins but very quiet.

We couldn't of asked for a better vacation and the cabin is what made it so perfect for us! We are planning on coming back next year!

The location of the cabin was close to the major highways for easy access to trips into town and trips around the lake. Everything was as pictured in the photos. The cabin was neat and clean and had all the amenities just like home. The owner was very helpful in answering all questions before our arrival and had asked permission to call on our cell phone to make sure we had everything we needed and to see if we had any further questions or needs. We had a wonderful relaxing week especially in front of the fireplace when we were not out sightseeing. Would recommend a complete trip around Lake Tahoe for one day with stops for many photo ops. Would also recommend a trip to Incline Villiage on the east side of the lake. The downtown area offers many restaurants, gambling casinos, shopping opportunities. Being well over 65+ we enjoyed the peace and calm of the cabin and its location. Would recommend the Lake Tahoe Pizza Company which is a few blocks from the cabin and also Passaretti's Restaurant which is a few blocks from the cabin. All in all it was more than we expected and we will book with this owner again.

Just What We Were Looking For

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was just what we were looking for: a well equipped place to stay for a couple of weeks within walking distance of the Y area. The kitchen had everything I needed to cook and the cabin was clean and very well organized. The owner was very helpful and answered all my questions quickly when we were inquiring about properties. We were there in the off season (September/October), but I am sure the cabin will be warm and cozy in the winter.
