About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Renters say, 5 Stars, Outstanding! Loved it! Our cabin is located in South Lake Tahoe. A beautiful cabin that is clean, comfortable and charming! This property is a block from the bike/hike trail, a few minutes from the base of Heavenly Ski Resort, and if you dare to be adventurous, you can take a picnic lunch through a scenic meadow and to the lake. This is less than a mile walk. (wear water shoes, the streams run through the meadow). Once you get to the lake, you will have a virtually private Lake Tahoe experience.

Once you settle into your new 'home away from home' enjoy all of the comforts of your own place. The cabin is stocked with all of the amenities and is a place to have a quiet honeymoon weekend or family reunion. Three families have put their favorite touches into a special place that is both affordable and centrally located. We would love to share our Tahoe Cabin with you year after year. Special financial accommodations will be made for returning families or singles!

We have also found Camp Richardson to be a great place during the summers at Tahoe. This is a short drive from the cabin (5 miles) and you can rent bikes and ride on safe and clean bike trails through panoramic meadows. Also in Camp Richardson is the best ice-cream shop around and horse rentals. Winter there is cross country rentals on the same meadows.

If you want the lake experience, Pope Beach is a few minutes drive and has white sand and shorline access. Safe and great for the kids!

If you are seeking night life, then this is the place to come! Harrah's, Harvey's to name a few sit on the California, Nevada stateline (5 miles away). There are dozens of restaurants, clubs and the nightlife of casino's including a gamblers delights. Come and try your luck.

Lastly, our Lake Tahoe Cabin is a place to relax. Come up and spend a day a week or longer. We will accommodate those special requests. We have some renters planning their vows on our backyard greenbelt. Lake Tahoe is truly one of the most beautiful places on earth.

Keywords: Cabin, Large Deck ,with grassy meadow, huge back yard. Safe, Family place. Great for cold drinks and BBQ. Super-clean, wifi, 4 star (not a motel 6)! Remodeled bathrooms. Close to Lake, boating.

About The Owner

Our cabin was bought by three families as a place to come year after year, allowing us to build precious memories. We are all neighbors and good friends, and live on the same block. Between our three families we have 11 children of various ages, our kids have grown up together. We have enjoyed furnishing the cabin as a group and love making our family memories and personal touches alive in our cabin, treasuring this place as a home away from home.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2001

Why The Owner chose South Lake Tahoe

Our lovely Lake Tahoe Cabin is a wonderful, charming, clean and centrally located place to get away. The parking spaces (2) are right in front for a car or boat. We love Lake Tahoe in all seasons! The backyard of this cabin sits on a lovely tree lined greenbelt. Walking, hiking and biking and a large selection of ski resorts are close by. Tahoe Keys Marina is a signal light away where you could launch your boat. Our family enjoys hiking and swimming in the lake during summer and skiing at Sierra at Tahoe in the winter. Heavenly is about 3 miles from the base.

What makes this cabin unique

The back deck and yard of the cabin is a fantastic place for singles or families. Winter, a potbelly fireplace is a great place to sip hot chocolate and enjoy a family game night! During Summer there is trimmed grass and a great place for a BBQ, volleyball, croquet or sitting out and enjoying a cup of coffee or cold drink. Winter the back turns into your own private snow park! Our children have enjoyed snow forts, building snowmen and sledding down the small piles of packed snow! The cabin is about 1400 sq. ft, and all furnishings are new! There is wireless broadband and Fast DSL, cable in the rooms. Board games and puzzles included. Book with us once and make our cabin part of your annual family memories. Renewing families will be given special pricing each year and first choice of priority booking dates.

A perfect spot for a group getaway

  • 5 of 5

A group of 5 of us stayed here for a weekend and this was the perfect spot. Plenty of space and beds, and all the little amenities you would need. Hosts were very responsive and the house information was well documented. Wifi was a great plus.

A White Christmas!!

  • 5 of 5

For the first time in my life of a half-century on this planet, we all got to enjoy our first White Christmas!! The cabin was warm and cozy, within a few short minutes of just about anything/everything you could need or want. The owners were available by email for a few quick questions with prompt replies to us. It was extremely quiet which was nice even though I think the weather had something to do with that. People were friendly in the surrounding area, and plenty of places to walk around to enjoy the moderately forested area. It literally comes with everything you will need unless you are picky or are looking for an espresso machine ;-) I would highly recommend this cabin for anyone looking for a basic family get together location.

Propert 234704 in South Lake Tahoe

  • 3 of 5

The cottage is a nice and comfortable for six people. Close to the beach, restaurants and casinos. A beautiful bike trail for walking. We stayed here in the summer and fall. We were excited to use the BBQ, and did not use because it was broken. In the fall we were told to bring our own wood for wood stove. Couldn't wait to warm up the cottage, but the flume was dirty and unable to use. Two important things that was advertised but did not work. We were disappointed.

Family time

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late in the evening our first day at the cabin but we had no problems getting into the house because there was a lock box with keys accessible to us. We were able to find the property easily. It accommodated all 6 of us. We were able to go to the beach with our granddaughters and our son visiting from the Midwest. We had a wonderful time enjoying the weather and the peaceful neighborhood. Our host was very accessible via Text message and help me, as this was our first time not using a hotel. The place was clean. We hope to do it again. Summer is a great time for family in Lake Tahoe.

Owner's Response: I am grateful you had a nice family visit - the cabin is a perfect place for that. You can spill out onto the deck, enjoy a dinner, coffee, or glass of wine. You can sit and watch the birds fly through the tall pines. You can watch the kids, or grand kids play in the safety of the greenbelt. Please come back - we'd love to host you all once again! Warm regards, - The owners.

Wonderful experience with my family. The place is clean and quite. Big well trimmed grass backyard is the most my kids enjoyed playing base ball and soccer during our stay. Center for every thing , it's a mile and half to the lake , shopping ( we did our grocery at Safeway), all the attraction close by .

Finally we would like to thank Miss. Jeannette for helping us during our reservation. She even offered us one more night stay free.

Thank you
