About The Owner

Jennifer has been vacationing in Lake Tahoe for over 32 years. Her grandparents once owned a condo in Zephyr Cove and her mother always told Jennifer that she kicked herself for not buying it from them when she had the chance. Each summer, Jennifer's mother would bring home a Tahoe real estate magazine, but she never pursued her dream. Jennifer and Brett were married and honeymooned in Lake Tahoe in July 2008. Tahoe is forever a special place for Jennifer's family. In December 2008, Jennifer's mother died unexpectedly. Jennifer's mother was generous in life and in death, and left an inheritance to Jennifer and Brett that was enough for a down payment on a house in Lake Tahoe. By tears, blood and the sweat of their brow, Jennifer and Brett remodeled this Zephyr Cove home with the dream of renting it to people who will visit Tahoe and create rich memories with their friends and family, just as they have done.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2009

Why The Owner chose Zephyr Cove

A Bay Area native, Jennifer has been vacationing in Tahoe since she was four years old. Some of her fondest family memories occurred in Lake Tahoe, which included her and Brett's wedding on South Shore. Her grandparents once owned a home in Zephyr Cove, which made this specific area of Tahoe even more special for her. Brett and Jennifer hope that families and groups of friends will enjoy their home and build wonderful memories of their own.

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin is located in the exclusive community of Marla Bay. Just two short blocks to the beach and 3 miles to Heavenly and the casinos, the cabin is situated perfectly to get the most out of Tahoe at any time of the year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at your lovely cabin last weekend, and I just wanted to send a quick thank you! We have vacationed in Tahoe the past 4 years, and I think we have found the perfect house for our tight knit group of friends. We loved being able to cook in the open floor plan and not feel like we were missing out on any of the fun and games. And the short walk to the private beach was absolutely perfect. Thank you again for sharing your wonderful home!

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

This is a comfortable cozy home in Lake Tahoe. We had our Thanksgiving here. It was a safe place to stay for our 2 year old grandson. It was a very short walk to the beach. The owners seem very nice , and we were able to talk to them with questions when we got there. The kitchen could use some new plates, and a few more glass glasses, but the fact that I could cook Thanksgiving dinner there is great.

Owner's Response: We always welcome feedback to improve the guest experience and this feedback is no exception. The guest notified me of the inconveniences they experienced and I thought we had resolved the issue to the satisfaction of the guest offline. I updated our listing and photos to ensure there is absolutely no confusion about 1) the number of bedrooms (3 + a finished, private basement with sofa sleeper), 2) the upstairs bedrooms indeed having apex ceilings and 3) the upstairs half bath being compact, but certainly usable by most guests under 6’3” tall. We strive to delight 100% of our guests. If we don’t, we take it hard and act swiftly to make improvements. We hope our 8+ year track record on VRBO will speak to the pride we take in serving our guests.

It was the perfect home for our stay in Zephyr cove! Plenty of space for visiting family.

  • 4 of 5

We needed a home in Zephyr cove for a family wedding and this worked perfectly for our needs! Everyone attending the wedding came over at some point of our stay to visit and there was plenty of room for coffee around the table. The Master bed was very comfortable. We will definitely be back again!

Thank you !

Nice/clean/comfortable

  • 3 of 5

This property has a unique character to it. It had all we needed and the main living are fits three to four adults nicely,

All amenities were there.

Our only disappointment was that the game table was not up for our grandkids who looked forward to that.

Enjoyed a short walk to,the beach area.

BEST vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

A very cozy home. So easy to get to Zephyr and Marla Bay was fun to. Owners were very easy to get in touch with when I had a silly question. It was SO great to have a washer and drier! We were able to use Marla Bay, were so close to Zephyr Cove. Rented jet skis, ski boat, paddle boards, and drove to Incline Village and went on the Catamaran. Always had a great cozy home to come home too!!! Thank you!
