About Joyce and Bob Miller,owners. Please call me directly for personal service

My husband and I live in San Jose, and have been renting our two vacation rental homes in Tahoe since 2000. We often have our guests tell us that staying in one of our homes is more like enjoying a friend's Tahoe Cabin than a rental house. I make it our policy to have a beautifully clean, nicely decorated Tahoe Style home for your mountain vacation, winter or summer.

Joyce and Bob Miller,owners. Please call me directly for personal service purchased this house in 2000

Why Joyce and Bob Miller,owners. Please call me directly for personal service chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

Our Agatam Lodge house is located in Tahoe Vista, between King's Beach and Tahoe City, just up the rise from the neighborhood beach. The house sits away from the street giving our house and high deck a lot of privacy. This house is the closest one to the beach, and there is a filtered lakeview from the front deck. Location,location,location!

This home is also very close to Northstar, about 10 minutes away, and 20 minutes to Squaw Valley.

What makes this house unique

1 Block to the Beach!! Walk to several great restaurants in Tahoe Vista. Great location for skiing Northstar and Squaw Valley. Right up the street are trails for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter.

There is a sledding hill near the house at the North Tahoe Regional Park off of National Ave. Also tennis courts, baseball diamonds, disk golf, and a playground there, too, for summer fun.

Agatam Lakeview Lodge - North Lake Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful home in North Lake Tahoe! Easy to reserve and the owners are very accommodating. One block to the beach, close to everything- shopping, grocery store, restaurants. Twenty min. to Squaw Valley. Two restaurants within walking distance- Mexican and Itian - both had great food and were very affordable. Beautifully appointed home with all the amenities!

Great space in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Agatam Lodge was the perfect space and location for us. Hiking and X-country skiing in the Tahoe Conservancy less than a block away, with the lake and restaurants a block in the other direction. We loved the low key vibe and dog friendly neighborhood.

The kitchen was well stocked with everything needed for cooking.

Great Loction and wonderful Home

  • 4 of 5

LOVE this Home... There was very thing you could think of from a out door grill and deck ,bikes, games, chairs for the beach ect.. We had 4 adults and one dog in this cabin and it can easily fit 4 more adults. Its great for kids to. The kitchen had every thing you need. The home looks like the bathroom and kitchen were remodel in very good taste. The towel and bed linens were top quality, and the location was of walking distance to the beach and restaurants. I will defiantly be back to rent this home with my family again. Thanks to the owner for putting so more care into this rental.

Comfortable and clean with easy trail and lake access

  • 5 of 5

The owners are wonderful! Very prompt and professional in their communications. The house is great- big garage with lots of storage for bikes, paddle boards, etc. The house is set up great with a large open living room, dining room and kitchen with a big deck just off the living/dining area. The house was very clean upon arrival and the check in instructions were spot on. The best part to us was the trail access for running with our dogs. If you walk just up the road you have access to several miles of beautiful dirt trails. Plus you're less than a block from the beach. We will certainly be staying here again.

On short notice decided to go up to Tahoe over Labor Day weekend. Found this place and inquired about availability. Response within about three minutes from Joyce. From that point on we were confirmed within 10 minutes and communicated with throughout the entire process. That is just something that puts us at ease while planning a vacation. The place is well appointed throughout and clean and in a great neighborhood one block from the water. Two bedrooms+ small bonus bunkbeds downstairs with master bedroom upstairs is great for families with older children for privacy.

Wonderfully relaxing family vacation with dog

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful one week summer vacation with adult children and pup. The house was even better than described with very comfortable accommodations for three couples as well as bunk beds for children (unused by us) and a sofa bed in the living room for 2 more. The layout was great for us as the master bedroom, kitchen, and living room are upstairs with the other bedrooms one story down. Our adult kids had some privacy as did we. The deck was where we did most of our dining and gas barbecue grilling. We just loved the view of trees and birds and a slim glimpse of the lake.

The location of the house was perfect for us. It is located an easy walk, 1 "block" away from the Lake which is where all the traffic is. The actual street the house is on and all the streets around it seemed deserted to us city folk. One can walk in the middle of the street and easily get out of the way of infrequent cars. Having a dog we walked all over the place exploring both the streets and the woods that are a short ways away. It seems that the North Tahoe Regional Park is quite nearby which has everything from well groomed trails for walking and mtn. biking as well as ball fields. There were beautiful tall pines to wonder at and worry that a giant pine cone would conk you on the head. The house had two adult mtn. bikes and several kid size bikes as well as two helmets and bike pump. We enjoyed the rides but serious riders might want to bring more bikes.

The beach right across the main road was wonderful as it is a good sand beach with sandy approaches to the water. The water is quite shallow which allows for it being warmed by the sun and not as freezing as Tahoe can be in other locations. On the beach one could get catamaran sailing lessons, rent kayaks and down the road go parasailing (not this beach but not far.)

The WiFi worked great and it was a cinch to connect a computer to the widescreen tv in the living room for movie streaming via a HDMI cable which I had thought to bring. It would be a nice touch to have a HDMI cable available. There was a great selection of board games for family entertainment and a few toys for tots.

The weather was beautiful with warm days and cool nights perfect for sleeping without air conditioning. If you like the mountains, trees, birds and a great lake, you could not do better than the Agatam Lodge. I imagine with Squaw, Northstar, and Incline nearby it would be great as a ski house in the winter.
