I started and edited the organization's newsletter, the Tahoma Tattler. I lived in San Francisco and worked as a technical writer and editor at Levi Strauss and Co. there.

I have served in the capacity of president, vice-president, cultural director, social director, foundation director, editor, advisory board member and docent for various organizations.
Roberta Morrow purchased this Cabin in 1979
Why Roberta Morrow chose Tahoma
We purchased the cabin because we loved to ski, and soon discovered that we loved Tahoe in the summer, spring and fall as well as in the winter. The cabin was a great home base for exploring the many interesting areas in the Sierra Nevada. We became very attached to our little neighborhood, and even spent three years there between living in San Francisco and Idaho. We love the Westshore of Lake Tahoe. We like the sense of community there. Homewood Mountain Resort is our favorite place to ski. We can walk to cross-country tracks in Sugar Pine Point State Park. We love to walk to the Ehrman Mansion there. We also like the stream profile at D.L. Bliss State Park. The Vikingsholm at the end of Emerald Bay and Valhalla are also favorite places. You'll notice a little influence of my Norwegian and Swedish heritage at our cabin! Every year we strive to make some improvements in addition to annual maintenance. In 2016 we replaced a wooden step onto the front deck with a concrete one and also added a ramp. We put in new lighting and cabinets in both bathrooms. In 2017 we added a remotely programmable thermostat so that guests arriving during the winter will enter a warm home. In 2018 we added a socket below the picture window in the living room that has two USB ports in it so you can charge your phone. We also added a flat screen Smart TV along with the DVD and VCR player that were there. One of our summer guests added two new beach chairs for us.
What makes this Cabin unique
Our cabin is cozy and comfortable. What I love about our cabin is the wonderful smell of the forest, the lovely summer temperatures, the easy walk to the lake or to Sugar Pine Point State Park, the lack of traffic on the West Shore, the short trip to Homewood Mountain Resort, walking to our local market to pick up the Sunday paper and some milk, eating breakfast on the front deck and watching the world go by, walking the dog around the neighborhood and talking to all the neighbors, watching old movies (there are more than 500 of them there), taking friends along or inviting California friends to come up while we are there, the great room concept where I can cook and visit with guests at the same time, the summer festivals, Snowfest in the winter, driving around Emerald Bay, poking around the Vikingsholm and Valhalla, the stream profile and nature walks at DL Bliss State Park, hiking up to the tarns above Emerald Bay, going to the hot springs in Nevada, the quiet fall season when the salmon are running. And the skiing in winter is great! We have fabulous views of the lake from Homewood Mountain Resort. The beauty of the lake and the mountains always restores my soul!

Exactly as listed
Excellent rental property. Everything as advertised. The unit is totally equipped. Outstanding collection of kitchen appliances, paper goods, utensils and spices, etc. The cabin guide was thorough and up to date.
This is an excellent property for families and small groups.
It is a rare find to have a one story rental in Lake Tahoe that can accommodate older folks who may have mobility problems.
No having to climb stairs to sleeping accommodations.
Just like home
I didn’t rent it. I am the trustee. I was the last person to stay there, so of course it was left in great shape. I was there to work on several projects and to hire some tasks to be performed. All ready for the summer visitors.
Relaxing get away!
We had a great week!! Lots of yard for the kids to play in. Super close to Homewood where we were able to ski and snowboard! Walking distance to a great pizza place and the lake. The kids loved playing with the toys and board games that were supplied. Kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals!
Great home for weekend in Tahoe
The home had everything we needed. Nice neighborhood close to Homewood and Sugar Pine Park. The kids and dog had a blast playing in the snow at the house. Roberta was easy to communicate with and let us extend out checkout so we could get in an extra morning on the mountain.
Glad to know you enjoyed the cabin and the neighborhood. It was a pleasure having you as our guests. You are welcome to return anytime. Try another season, or return again next winter when the snow flies!
