About Ana Garcia

My family and I have owned the home since 2009. We have carefully considered the comfort and needs or our Tahoe guests, while keeping an eye on reasonable rates. As dog lovers ourselves, we understand the value of being able to vacation with our furry friends.

Why Ana Garcia chose North Upper Truckee

Our home is spacious, comfortable, and bright. The deck is many guests' favorite spot in summer. 1995 Kickapoo is a special spot! You will feel like you're in the woods, yet 5 minutes to the "Y". We are 6 miles from skiing at Sierra, and at the base of great hiking and cross-country trails.

What makes this house unique

the large, comfortable home has the perfect gathering room, yet bedrooms that feel private. Our home provides you easy arrival and departure, so you're not fighting weekend traffic, and yet close to all Tahoe offers.

Great cabin in a nice location

  • 5 of 5

The cabin location is just outside South Lake Tahoe, extremely convenient to some great hiking trails, only 7-8 minutes from town. Easy to get to Kirkwood ski area (where we skied). Well-supplied, great gas stove that nicely heats the main area in the winter, easily accommodated our family of 6 people. Would definitely book this cabin again!

Home description is right on

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this home throughout the month on February and look forward to returning this year. It is clean and cozy. It’s well situated to all Southlake has to offer and minutes to the ski resorts. There is plenty of room and the kitchen comfortably seats 8. Ana is incredibly responsive to questions or concerns.

Nice stay for our long weekend.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a long weekend in late Feb. and it was great. The house was clean and big. Nice backyard for the dogs we brought with us. Lots of space and big bedrooms as well. The main hang out space is open with a fireplace that works well. There's a bottom level which we did not really use but it's finished with futons and chairs. Quiet location but still close to all the typical Tahoe activities.

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this home. It had everything we could ever need and was pretty well located (10 min drive to stores, 15-20mins to Heavenly). Definitely will book again next time we're in Tahoe.

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

It was a great place overall. The only disappointing part was the garbage disposal not working for the sink. It took a while for the water to drain. Not sure what the reason was. We would go back if we get to have another vacation in Tahoe in the future. It was definitely spacious.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you had a good time and found the home comfortable and spacious. Of course, we fixed the garbage disposal immediately upon hearing of the problem. Sorry for the inconvenience! We'd love to have you back anytime!

Car: necessary

Located in one of Tahoe's best neighborhoods, this clean, cozy, and spacious cabin is the ideal place for your family's Tahoe vacation. The house is in the perfect setting to enjoy all Tahoe has to offer. Located at the base of the Angora Wilderness, endless miles of hiking, biking, snow shoeing and cross country skiing await. All 3 of Tahoe's ski resorts are short drive from the house. Spectacular lake, beaches, casinos, Heavenly Village, and all shops and restaurants are a short drive from our quaint, quiet, and upscale neighborhood.
