About Lisa and John McDonald

Came to Lake Tahoe for a week's vacation in 1964 and never left. Bought and moved to this property in 1978. 1996-1997 remodeled it into our ideal vacation home and immediately received very positive responses from clients who now come from all over the world to enjoy the beauty of Tahoe and the peace, tranquility, and convenience of the Lake Tahoe Woodside

Lisa and John McDonald purchased this house in 1978

Why Lisa and John McDonald chose Tahoe Vista

This property is centrally located to all possible activities that exist at Lake Tahoe yet is privately situated within and surrounded by the Old Brockway Gold Course (built in 1926) which provides for a quiet retreat in a private neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

The land around the property is almost level for convenient access, has over a dozen 100 foot tall pine trees, is actually one of the oldest neighborhoods in Tahoe originally established by George Comstock of Virginia City's famed mother load era.

Charming and convenient, loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Our weekend was wonderful. Just the right amount of space in a convenient location with friendly and accommodating hosts. Some things I loved - a well-appointed kitchen, abundant towels, the gas fireplace, the coffee. We were looking for restaurant recommendations for gluten-free eating and were thrilled with our hosts' suggestions. I would go back in a heartbeat!

Wonderful, quiet cabin with great location

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommended. We stayed at the cabin for 6 nights over the New Year holiday on a ski trip and really enjoyed the space. Northstar is just a 10 minute drive, and restaurants, groceries, and even discount ski rentals are just minutes away, making logistics very simple. Someone left ski pants under a couch by mistake and John had them in the mail next day, which shows how attentive they are. Thanks again.

Very clean, well kept and comfortable place.

  • 5 of 5

Ideal place for a small family within walking distance of the beach and short drive from a ski resort. Hosts are very hospitable and were attentive to my needs. They even offered to make a bed for us since we arrived late in the evening. The lights and heat were on. Good set of kitchenware - and I've seen places with just one old rusty pan! All kitchen appliances are clean and new. Good supply of paper towels, soap etc. I stayed there twice and certainly will plan to stay again when I am in the area.

Practically Perfect in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful cabin lacks for nothing. Absolutely everything you could possibly need or want has been provided. It is cozy, comfortable and the kitchen is fully equipped. It even has a waffle iron. The location is quiet and close to wonderful hiking, kayaking and some good restaurants. We go to Tahoe every year and have always stayed in lovely places but this was the best. The owners are friendly, thorough and knowlegable about the area. We can't wait to return to Tahoe Woodside.
