About Michelle Farris

This was my childhood vacation home and I spent every year coming up to Tahoe. I love the area, the clean air and the a-frame ceiling provides lots of space to have a family gathering.

Michelle Farris purchased this house in 1976

Why Michelle Farris chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

Because it's private, cozy while giving you lots of space to sit and relax while on the computer or watching the kids play outside. There are lots of great restaurants nearby and the North Shore casinos are only 10 minutes away! Tahoe City provides great shopping which is 15 minutes away. Reno is about 50 minutes away.

This beautiful home has a big, cozy living room. Our family of eight were able to relax, play and have fun together! We had a blast skiing at Squaw and Alpine, snowmobiling, and hanging out at the house.

Gorgeous cabin in a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

We used the cabin for a ladies end-of-summer getaway and we couldn't be happier with our choice! The cabin itself is gorgeous with lots of space and amenities. It is close to the main road, King's beach, and a Safeway, yet was very quiet at night. Michelle was a pleasure to rent from since she was responsive and accommodating. Would definitely rent again!

Jet Ski weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this cabin. It was both comfortable and relaxing. We usually eat out but it was so relaxing we tended to stay in most of the time and just relax.

We had jet skis and being only 3-5 min from the beach was great. Afterwards we had plenty of room to park the truck and skis in the driveway.

The cabins living area is very larger and open with great viewing windows out the back.

Great place to stay. We look forward to going back soon.

Clean, comfortable, relaxing in a great location says it all.
