The BLUELEAF cabin is named after the handmade artisan tiles that decorate the kitchen area. Cook on the very cool induction cooktop: or start a stew in an original 50's CROCK-POT. Roast a herb chicken breast for two in the microwave/convection oven or make a panini or pancakes on the griddle. Sit by the wood fire in a sunken living room decorated with modern and mid-century furniture. Warm colors , lighting, plenty of indoor space for lounging or cuddling up to watch a Netflix movie, or listen to your favorite tunes over the BOSE sound system. Retire to a five star king size bed, with custom beddings, an electric fireplace will keep you toasty thru the coldest of winter nights. Enjoy a book and a bath by candlelight in your tile accented, pine wood wrapped bathroom. Plenty of room for two adults: a premium queen sleeper folds out in the sunken living room in addition to the king bedroom master suite.Up to two children under the ages of ten years old may stay free (non-holiday). There is one bathroom within the king suite. A door separates the sunken living room from the master bedroom. There is a private patio, gated grounds, and fully landscaped yard. Your very well behaved four legged may join you, but may not be left unattended in the cabin.
Blueleaf cabin sits next to Rainforest cabin: they are separated by a common wall and locked door.
If you wish absolute privacy and perfect silence during your stay, please do communicate this desire. Holidays book both cabins, and a shared festive atmosphere prevails.
Dogs are welcome, though we ask their humans to respect the right of the plants to survive...dogs are not allowed to run off leash in either of the gated yards. A giant dog park off-leash and thousands of hiking trails are abundant and all around the neighborhood.
Retire restfully and rise to grinding Sumatra and French Roast: happily supplied, along with lots of goodies, by your hosts. Short drives or walks to the best of South Lake Tahoe attractions and the finest restaurants.
Affordable luxury in a green, healthy house. Fairly priced for the incredible 600 square feet ! Why stay anywhere else ?

Sande purchased this cabin in 2010
BLUELEAF is just plain COOL. I find it very romantic, even without the 'romantic' original art on the walls.
Treats and suprises for you and yours
We believe in making hospitality sustainable too........
Hi, Sande. Thanks for your lovely note yesterday, and your explanation of our TV difficulties! We loved the Blue Leaf cabin, and we had a wonderful time at Lake Tahoe. My friend Alicia was wishing for a thunderstorm from the day of our arrival, and we were so grateful that you arranged a surprise thunder-and-lightning-and-hail show for us on our last evening there!.... It was truly magnificent!
The place was cute and cozy. It is a duplex and you can hear everything on the other side. We couldnt figure out the tvs, the cable didn't work or something, So we rented movies instead and the WiFi is horrible fyi. But we spent most of our time in the snow. Great location close to everything. We would stay again.
Great property - but some problems. Our pros/cons are:
- great location
- park/golf field close buy to walk the dog
- short drive to Heavenly
- nice and small, you can say cozy property
- lots of instructions from the owner on how to use different items [sadly, not always sufficient]
- well equipped kitchen
- BIG CON!!!! no emergency contact info AT ALL from the owner; if you have problems [and we did!] you are totally on your own. I suspect if there are electrical or gas problems, you will have to solve them on your own or die trying :-(
- also, just a note - this is a shared property
- not really a con, but a note to dog owners: the yard IS fully enclosed, however the same yard is shared with the other connected property [this is a listing for a smaller half of the house]
Overall, we are not staying there again, primarily due to the last item - no private enclosed yard for our snow dog.
My daughter, my small dog and I stayed here for 3 nights and we loved it! We x-country ski so being near the Bijou Golf Course was perfect!
It was tricky that there were a lot of rules about nice rugs and no surfaces for dogs yet it was pet friendly?? But we fogured it out and our dog had a blast!!!! I recommend this lovely place!
This place was in a nice location and comfortable interior; there is a garbage problem that attracts bears and racoons so be careful of disposing your garbage in the containers which aren't secure...
Also, upon exit, remove all garbage and follow the cleaning instructions to the 'T', otherwise the owner will charge you extra...a stickler she is...
Cosy and beautifully decorated!
We couldn't figure out the bedroom TV but we are not very technical!
we missed more light but the spirit of the place was light :)
Our 2nd stay here at the Blue Leaf cabin! Never disappoints! Our favorite place to stay in South Shore when ever we make it up to Thaoe! Absolutely Love this location and property! Hope to stay again soon! :) Thank you for an amazing place to make memories!
Can snowshoe right out the front door. Golf course for cross country is one block walk.
