**Please read INTERNET disclaimer below: item #22**
Get away from the crowds and enjoy the amazing cobalt blue lake and the special spectacular west shore. The West Shore is the best shore.
Come and relax at our 4 bedroom two bath home with gorgeous views of Lake Tahoe. Our house is your house, perfect for your family and friends to spend time together! We have an open kitchen and living room area with two large decks overlooking the lake. The layout makes for a great place to relax with your whole family. (We are NOT a party house if you are looking for a big bash place) We have soft, quiet wall-to-wall carpeting throughout the home; comfortable beds (new king and queen beds!) all with down comforters and soft cotton sheets. Two story with steep stairs, bring your baby gate if you have very young children.
LOCATION: Our house is in a quiet residential neighborhood (where some residents live year-round) We are near the entrance to Meeks Bay Beach and Resort, open to public. We are above Emerald Bay Road/89, which is the only road that wraps around the entire lake. It hugs the shore of Lake Tahoe all the way around. Most all of the homes here that are within walking distance of the lake and have a close view do experience some road noise from Emerald Bay Road due to the close proximity to the lake.
In the warm seasons, you can walk to the best white sand beach on the lake and in winter ski/snowboard at nearby resorts. ***UPDATE—JUNE 2018: due to temporary COUNTY ROAD CONSTRUCTION plan on driving down to beach***
Very close to paved bicycle/walking/jogging trail that goes all the way to Tahoe City. Near Sugar Pine Point state park and the entrance to Desolation wilderness trail. In winter enjoy amazing snowy views and nearby ski and sledding areas.
We always wish we could stay longer. This is truly a home you can settle into. We sure have...our father built the cabin in 1977 and it has been in our family ever since. We rent only to help us with maintenance and upkeep costs.
Are you wondering about how to find additional reviews of our place???
OUR GUESTBOOK REVIEWS here in this website are copied verbatim directly from our guestbook at the cabin. The HomeAway website recently changed procedures and does not post an owner's submitted guestbook reviews in the "reviews" or "review count" section anymore. :(
We have over 20 ALL-EXCELLENT REVIEWS for years in our cabin guestbook.
HOW TO READ THEM: Scroll down on this main HomeAway page about our home go to the little box that says "Monica"
--> click on "about Monica", that is where HomeAway has put all of our guestbook reviews

Wireless is available at the cabin however due to the local Tahoe basin wireless provider and weather conditions, it cannot be guaranteed. we do not provide a refund in the event that the wireless service has interruptions which are out of our control.

More substantial wireless is available at Sunnyside lodge near Tahoe City.
-----> PLEASE NOTE: Wireless is satellite provided and is often slow. Wireless is supplied only for use of emails and basic internet activity. Basics do work adequately (unless there is a weather related outage or other satellite interference).
We want you to know before you book that our housing region doesn't have any fast, powerful wireless provider available that enables you to do important work i.e. web live conferences/meetings etc.
No streaming of movies etc. This will cause excessive data usage, at a high cost, which will be deducted from the renter's security deposit. Again, staying connected via your email accounts is usually fine (provided there is no weather disruption).
23. We reserve the right to enter the cabin, or have authorized repair person enter, for any necessary vital repair issues if ever needed during your stay.
