Great jumping off point

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived (early), we had driven through Donner Pass chain controls, and the driveway was being cleared from about 2 feet of fresh snow. The location is excellent - about one mile from the 89 / Lake Tahoe intersection (groceries / banking), very close to Granlibakken, and about 15-20 minutes from Alpine Meadows. There is a little sledding hill at the end of the block, and the dogs in the neighborhood seem to see visitors as a social event - big sweet dogs.

The cabin appears to have been built as two two bedroom apartments, but is now separated, and a loft bedroom was added over the kitchen (accessible by ladder). The beds were comfortable, and there were plenty of extra blankets and pillows. The game room worked out great for the kids, and the living room is very comfortable.

The down sides are that the kitchen appears a bit bigger in the photos, but even so, with the kitchen island, there is plenty of counter space (we were cooking for as many as 20 including visitors). Also, when we were there, the pump to the hot tub died, so we didn't get to sit in it under the snowy skies, but on the positive side, Herb, the owner, was very responsive, and he said that when he fixed it he ordered an extra pump so that the next time it happens he doesn't have to order one to repair it.

Great Location & Clean/Spacious/Cozy Home

  • 5 of 5

We love the house and it's great for all times of year. Very close to Tahoe City shops, bars/restaurants, the lake/beach, and grocery stores. The house is quite big and spacious, yet still feels cozy and has a perfect cabin feel.

The owner, Herb, has been wonderful to work with and is always quick to respond and help (if needed).

Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Plenty of room for 11 people and a pet

  • 4 of 5

This cabin was comfortable and cozy. There were enough beds for 11 of us. The beds were comfortable with nice comforters. It was great to have both an upstairs and a downstairs common space - the kids hung out in one and the adults in the other at times. The pool table and hot tub were great. Nice laundry area which we used to store the food we brought for our large party. The kitchen was pretty small for so many people and there was not enough storage space for our large group, which is why we used the laundry room area downstairs. All in all, it worked out fine as we cooked all of our meals here including Thanksgiving. The table accommodated all 11 of us, we pulled a few extra chairs in from the downstairs porch. We couldn't get the wifi working and Herb responded right away with the suggestion that we unplug the router and replug it again. This worked! The house was well located near the end of a street where there was a nice trail through the woods. We were also just a block or so away from the Grandlibakken resort which has a small sledding hill and skiing. There wasn't much snow until the night before we left. The house also worked well for our two dogs. We would stay there again. It would be nice to have some spa towels for the hot tub. We just used our shower towels and threw them in the dryer to keep them usable.

Great spot!

  • 4 of 5

This house is spacious, in a great location, and has a comfortable feel. The beds were very comfortable, the bathrooms nice & the 2 decks were both huge and amazing with a nice hot tub. The 10 of us that stayed had a great time and never felt crowded. I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone else!

Thank you!

Great location, comfortable rooms, lots of space and fun for whole family

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this Tahoe Cabin walking distance from Tahoe City and the Fanny Bridge. There was plenty of space and sleeping options for a big group and all the beds were very comfortable. The owner was very helpful and gave a lot of good suggestions. The Hot Tub, Television entertainment and pool table was a huge hit for the whole family. The property was well maintained and I would recommend this to others. We will definitely consider using this cabin for future trips up to Tahoe City.
