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 Tahoe Vista

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!

Ski Trip to Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Pinewood. Proximity to Northstar and Diamond Peak ski resorts was terrific. Less than a 15 minute drive to either one. The cabin is just a 10 minute walk to the heart of downtown Kings Beach, while maintaining a private cabin in the woods feel. Owner is very knowledgeable of the area and accommodating of all our needs. Highly reccommend!

Came here to relax and enjoy the beauty of Tahoe. Didn't realize it would be such a charming place and the owner just as delightful. Truly exactly what we were looking for and very clean and comfortable.

Amazing home in an even more amazing area!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I just stayed here and it met all our expectations and some! Amazing location to everything in North Lake Tahoe. 10-12 minute short drive up the road to Northstar ski resort. Nearby hikes all around with amazing views in all directions. The home itself was wonderful for 2 people. Kitchen was fully stocked with anything you needed to cook with. Amazing fire place/furnace to keep warm at night. Highly recommend to others if you want to fully experience North Lake Tahoe but also want a cozy getaway. Can't wait to come back!!
