About Chuck Harrison

My wife and I absolutely love Lake Tahoe. Not only is it one the most beautiful destinations in the world, it offers so many outdoor recreation opportunities. We enjoy hiking, kayaking, biking, cross county skiing, swimming and relaxing on the beach. We spend many summer and fall weekends at the house with our golden retriever, Truckee.

Chuck Harrison purchased this house in 2004

Why Chuck Harrison chose South Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe is our favorite place in California to vacation. It was recently voted the most popular vacation destination in the world. It has so many outdoor recreation opportunities to choose from and the lake is absolutely beautiful. Tahoe has something for everyone...mountains, lakes, beaches, casinos, golf, nightlife, and amazing weather.

What makes this house unique

Within walking distance from the house, you can enjoy: private gated beach access, lake, marina with boats you can rent, kayaks, canoes, or you can bring your own boat and rent a slip. On the private beach you can get married, eat at the glassed in restaurant, use the playground, play volleyball, rent kayaks, paddle boats,and canoes. At the Lakeside Marina you can bring your own boat or rent one. You can walk to world class golf at Edgewood Golf Course, casinos, restaurants, Heavenly Village, night clubs, and shopping. There are also great bike trails, and hiking trails nearby.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family would like to thank you for such a wonderful cabin. It was so nice to feel like we were at home. We came up for a wedding and will be back next summer with a lot more memories.

Rustic cabin in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Recently we had a lovely stay at this cabin (three adults, one 3 year old, one dog).

Pros: This house is wonderful for a single family, 1-2 couples, and anyone with pets. There’s a nice fenced backyard and deck, with plenty of room to run around securely. Location close to the lakeside beach and South Lake Tahoe shopping, restaurants and entertainment areas is fantastic. The home is well stocked with plenty of cookware, kitchen supplies, cable TV, a whole locker full of beach equipment and bikes, and lots of games and toys for kids. Although the home is very downscale, it's well-cleaned and tidy. Beds are reasonably comfortable. Small bottles of shampoo, conditioner and lotion are provided, as well as several sets of decent-quality bathroom towels. Hot water volume and water pressure were great. The wifi had a good consistent signal.

Cons: Although the house can sleep at least 8, the home is too small to support that many. It’s small, cozy, and rustic, a bit like a boat with a galley-style kitchen (it’s even decorated with a lot of nautical themes). The upstairs sleeping area doesn’t have immediate bathroom access and was very hot in the daytime; fans are provided, but we didn’t try them out to see if the floor would adequately cool down. The downstairs floors are very uneven (sloped) and the ceilings are low. There’s no washer/dryer. Towels are provided, but we could have used more in both bathrooms over the course of our stay, plus a bathmat in the small bathroom. Additional pillows would be nice as well. It would also be helpful to get a list of the cookware, utensils, towels, disposable products, and other equipment provided with the cabin ahead of time, so visitors don’t spend money buying some of these items (for example, it took us a couple days before we found the kitchen trash bags). The front door sticks a bit – the lock is off center, so you have to lift the door a bit to get it to turn properly. We also had some issues with the refrigerator freezing some of our produce, so be careful of the temperature controls. Bath soap should be provided in addition to the other bath amenities.

We weren’t that impressed when we arrived, but admit that over the course of our visit, the cabin grew on us! We would definitely consider staying here again, as the cons are livable and many of the pros are hard to find elsewhere. You will have a very pleasant stay here as long as you know what to expect and are prepared!

Cozy place with a great location

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our group. The location was perfect for walking to the beach, casinos and restaurants. The yard with the deck, tables, chairs and umbrellas was a great place for activities and barbecues and quickly become the favorite spot. Chuck was available to answer any questions or concerns. Thank you for sharing your cabin!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! It's walking distance to the beach and to the casinos. The cabin was clean and nicely kept. It had a great back patio and yard that would be great for pets or kids to play. Definitely will be returning in the future!

Lake Tahoe trip

  • 5 of 5

The renting process was so easy and Chuck was great to work with and very accommodating. The house is a street away from the beach/marina which was perfect! Also, a short 5 minute walk to the main street where you can eat, shop and gamble. The house was perfect for me, my husband, our son and our 2 dogs. The backyard was just amazing for them and our son to run around. We spent most nights out on the patio. The owners have a booklet of all the fun things to do around the area if you've never been here before. We've been coming here for years (staying at different properties) and the information was spot on. We will be staying here again!
