Overview

Strawberry Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

This unique mid-century modern cabin style (1950's) house sleeps 6 comfortably. It is located in the scenic Strawberry community off of Highway 50, 100 yards from the American River in the Strawberry forest canyon. There are beautiful views of Lover's Leap from our cabin with floor to ceiling (9') windows in the Living Room and Rose Room. The cabin is equipped with new, efficient forced air heating, remodeled kitchen with granite countertops and has a beautiful floor to ceiling stone fireplace that adds ambiance and additional warmth.

It is in walking distance to the historic Pony Express Trail and Lover's Leap, a hot spot for rock climbers and hikers. Enjoy the historic Strawberry Lodge, a walk away, for breakfast, dinner or a nightcap or walk to the Strawberry Station to pick up some groceries or hang out with the locals, climbers and the owners, Squirrel and Jen.

An hour and a half from Sacramento, just before the usual chain control at Twin Bridges and 5 miles before Sierra-at-Tahoe our cabin is ideal for skiers and riders, without the hassle of driving over Echo Summit. There are many recreational activities to enjoy right out the front door and even more a short drive away.

The Pacific Crest Trail, the Pony Express Trail, Lover's Leap and Horse Tail Falls Trail are minutes from the cabin. The cabin is close to a handful of mountain recreational lakes including Echo Summit Lake, Ice House Lake, and Cody Lake.

About Cari

We both enjoy outdoor activities like surfing, jogging, mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding, back country skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, swimming and camping. I love to decorate and work on home improvement projects. Fulfilling my life long dream of owning a cabin in the Sierras has given me another fantastic projected that I love. It is so fun decorating the cabin in mountain/lodge decor!

Cari purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Cari chose California

Vacationing in Tahoe was always a favorite memory growing up. It has always been a dream to own a little cabin in the woods. We love the seclusion, skiing and outdoor adventures in Strawberry/ Twin Bridges. It's the perfect place to bring kids, and I'm glad we can give our kids the same life long memories of enjoying the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains!

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin has so many fun adventures right out the front door. Walking to the American River to relax by the river or swim in the pools is a fantastic summer activity. Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, Pony Express Trail, Horse tail Falls Trail are always beautiful. Bringing a plant guide to help identify Sierra wild flowers is always a joy. Hiking from Camp Sacramento to the top of Lover's Leap is an easy hike with spectacular views as the reward! Not to mention, the great lakes nearby to fish, swim, boat and relax by the shore.

We shall return!

  • 5 of 5

What a delight! This cabin was perfect for us. I went with my adult son for a few days of skiing. We have limited time to spend together and this cabin gave us exactly what we needed. We had privacy without losing the cosiness. The owners personal touches show what caring people they are. I feel like I know Cari! She was so warm and personal in our emails and our one conversation. Our thanks to VRBO and the Salzman family for sharing their treasure.

Wonderful cabin, generous owner

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took our honeymoon at strawberry cabin in June 2014, and it was a wonderful trip! The cabin is beautifully located within walking distance of Lover's Leap, and it's only a 30 minute drive to get to beautiful Lake Tahoe. The cabin itself was great for us, and the cute strawberry themed decorations made it feel like a home during our 2 week stay. We enjoyed eating our dinner by the fireplace at night, and in the mornings we enjoyed the beautiful living room view of the forest through the wall of windows. Cari, the owner, was very kind to us in helping us book a honeymoon stay at her cabin that fit within our budget, and over a year afterward has continued her kindness to us in quick correspondences and generosity when we've emailed her with questions about her cabin and the area. We highly recommend staying at Strawberry Cabin!

What a peaceful stay

  • 4 of 5

My husband, daughter and I had a wonderful stay at this cabin. It is located in a small residential tract on the other side of the highway from the river. Very quiet area , which is a blessing after spending the day in Tahoe. Beautiful view of Lovers Leap from deck. Great place for morning coffee! Beds were comfy. All the amenities of home. Would love to return.

Great place, greater owners!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property. The house was perfect for our getaway with our kids, who loved the bunkbeds, tv (with VHS tapes!), and the games. Kitchen was extremely well stocked and the beds and linens were high end. I also appreciated the "green-ness." Lots of eco-friendly touches. The owner was super fast in responding when I e-mailed with a concern and she was active in ensuring that we had a good stay. The cabin is an easy distance from South Lake Tahoe so we were able to get to restaurants and the lake, and it's close to awesome hiking. One thing I wish I'd known was that you have to cross the highway to get to the river (so we had to take the car), but this was obvious as soon as we got the address. Not a huge deal but we did have to adjust our plans a bit.

Wonderful Christmas break

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Strawberry cabin for four nights over Christmas break and had a really wonderful time.

The cabin is very clean and really well stocked, with all the kitchen tools we needed to prepare a Christmas dinner, a cozy living room and very convenient to skiing, sledding and a nearby general store.

The owners were very attentive and easy to plan with, we're looking forward to spending more time at the Strawberry cabin and would definitely recommend it to people looking for a place in the Tahoe area.

Climbing Couple

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for seven weeks during our summer vacation. As both hikers and climbers, we couldn't have been happier with the cabin.

The kitchen was extremely well stocked with all the cooking material we needed, even a couple of slow cookers and a gas grill.

The living-room was cozy and comfortable. We had our parents come for a visit, and we all enjoyed fireplace and glass windows. The hammocks were an especially nice and comfortable touch.

We plan on spending another summer there soon.
