About Lisa and John McDonald

Came to Tahoe for a one week vacation in 1964 and stayed. Met, married, and raised 3 boys here. Love the pure air, pure water, healthy environment

Lisa and John McDonald purchased this cabin in 1978

Why Lisa and John McDonald chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

Located within the Old Brockway Golf Course in one of the oldest neighborhoods at Lake Tahoe, established in 1926, and developed by Henry Comstock of the Virginia City Mother Load era. Centrally located to all the activity yet remains private, the property itself is surrounded by over a dozen 100 foot tall Pine trees and dozens of smaller Aspens

What makes this cabin unique

Private driveway, yard, and patio with gas BBQ tucked in and surrounded by Aspens. The complete kitchen provides opportunity to create great meals. The ski lift swing in the front garden/yard came from Tahoe Donner Ski Resort.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Best holiday ever!! Thanks for letting us stay in your cabin.We did a lot of snowboarding at Northstar and we loved every minute. Such a good location with a 5 minute walk to the bus stop and short walk to the Safeway Supermarket. Thank you so much, John and Lisa.

Delightful, Cozy Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here during a week-long mountain biking vacation. It was completely delightful! Beautifully equipped and cozy, the cabin had everything we needed and more. It's tucked away in a forested neighborhood walking distance to shops, restaurants and the beach, yet you're still in the woods. Close to major ski areas, great hiking, mountain biking & kayaking (and space for your gear, too!) Quiet & private, with nicely maintained grounds. The owners are very friendly & helpful. A perfect getaway for a couple or a couple of friends. We can't wait to come back!

Cozy cabin with great location and friendly hosts

  • 5 of 5

Tahoe Pinewood is a great spot for a couple to stay while exploring beautiful north shore of the Lake. It's within walking distance of beaches and restaurants, nicely furnished and very clean. The kitchen is very well-equipped and even has what you need to make your own espresso and lattes. John and Lisa are great hosts!

Would definitely return.

Excellent vacation in a great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a wonderful week in this charming rustic house. The cabin is small but the space is so amazingly well organized and equipped that, while having completely everything needed, you never feel cramped, not for a minute. Cozy and very comfortable, just perfect for two people! It has a beautiful patio, great for a morning coffee (provided fresh coffee beans and stove-top espresso maker was just something!) and an evening star watching. The place is so quiet and private, yet conveniently located in a walking distance from the lake shore, the main roads and the grocery store (which was quite helpful as we preferred to cook by ourselves). It was also a pleasure to meet the owners who live right next door - very welcoming, friendly, helpful, responsive, absolutely wonderful people. All I can say, we were lucky to find this home for our Tahoe vacation. Lisa and John, thank you so much for your hospitality! We really look forward to coming back!

The perfect cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for an escape from our busy life and found Pinewood. The location was within walking distance of nearly everything: restaurants, the beach, lake swimming, golf, with Nevada casinos a few miles away. The owners, Lisa and John, suggested a beautiful short hike with outstanding vistas of Kings Beach and beyond, across the twenty-two mile long Lake Tahoe . But most of all, Pinewood was the ideal hideaway for us to sleep late, eat a leisurely breakfast, and relax. We hope to return someday .

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This place is like a tiny house with all the all the things you need. Was at a perfect location to walk to store, Italian restaurant, golf if you like it. We could take a nice walk to Kings beach. Was very easy to get around from this location. Costco was only a 40 min drive to Reno or Carson City but cheaper gas at the Carson City location and closer to freeway. John and Lisa are wonderful host.Thanks again John and Lisa for all you do for your tenants that come and stay. Coffee is great!!!!!!
