My name is Laurie.
I am an author, artist, musician and mom.
The log cabin is my get-away where I write my books and movies. Its my refuge, my home away from home and my heart.
As a child, I saved a scrapbook of pictures of my dream home...
and the first moment I saw our cabin, I knew this was IT!
The smell of pines and being a minute stroll to the beach is my favorite part of being in Tahoe.
My desire is to share a yesteryear, nostalgic, homestead restored with all the fascinations of modern comfort without compromising its ambiance has come true. The hand-made, authentic, cozy log cabin duplex, boasts of spaciousness, yet intimate for two which meets my needs for alone time to create and family time to build memories. I have been coming to this log cabin for over 20 years and it still holds me captive with it's beauty.
Dreamt and believed all my life that someday I would live in a log cabin up in the mountains on a lake. Dream came realized more than vividly true, I feel BLISSFUL! :)))
Laurie Punches purchased this cabin in 1992
It is everything I dreamt of.
An authentic, home-made mountain cabin in the pines...
a few steps from the sandy beach,
yet near enough to the city and all its activities, that I can be away from the noise and hustle and bustle, but skiing, shopping, gambling within 5 minutes.
Hand-made of the most beautiful trees from Canada.
Original owner owned the original Tahoe wood mill, and hand made all the paneling, roof, doors and details. It took 5 years to build, while a whole subdivision in the neighborhood was built. The quality and uniqueness of everything about this cabin is beyond my wildest imagination. I feel swept up in a fairytale everytime I stay, and am sad to leave... and can't wait to get back!
The full cabin experience. The rock floors, shag carpets, granite counters, rock hewn sinks, lodge pole banisters, huge log beams and vaulted ceilings make the cabin ageless, yet pampering.
Really cozy and beautiful house. More roomy than in the pictures. We like the decor, very stylish. But if it could have more early check in time and late check out time would be much better.
Good location to park. Good open concept kitchen/living room/dining room. Good off the street parking. Dark bathrooms & bedrooms. No hair dryer. Good value for your money.
The "Cozy Cabin" really was cozy. It was clean and fairly well maintained. It was exactly as described in the listing, with a lot of seating in the living area and two very good sized bedrooms upstairs. The cabin's location is outstanding; walking distance from Regan (3 blocks) and El Dorado beaches, in the quiet Al Tahoe neighborhood. The cabin is decorated well in a rustic, log cabin motif and had everything we needed for an awesome week at "The Lake." The owner communicated very well, answering the couple of questions we had during our stay quickly.
We enjoyed several nearby restaurants, including the new Cold Water Brewery, Mandarin Garden, Heidi's and MacDuff's Public House. We cooked dinner in the cabin as well, just relaxing "at home". We also ventured to The Beacon at Camp Richardson for a lovely dinner on the lakefront. Walks on the beach at sunset became a favorite activity as well as hikes in the Hope Valley.
If Anyone that is looking into staying here.. It's a must! I had the best time here with me and my husband. It was our 5th anniversary . The home is so beautiful!! And it was big . I couldn't believe how big and nice it was. Everything was up to date and very clean. I can't wait till the next time we make a trip up there. Next time we will be bring the kids. Not only is the house beautiful it was a great price and great location.. We walked to the lake everyday . I couldn't believe it. It's also had another side that can join so if you wanted to plan a trip with another family , you can be right next to each other . And the owner was very sweet lady. Made us feel like it was home .😊We are definitely coming back .
We loved staying at this lovely, spacious log cabin in South Lake Tahoe.
It is extremely convenient and comfortable. It is located about one block from the beach. It is within walking distance from a fantastic inexpensive vegan restaurant and bicycle rental store. It is minutes from down town yet in a very quiet and safe neighborhood.
Being from the east we loved the western motif. You are in for a treat.
The owner Lorie was in contact with us to make sure everything went well.
We highly recommend this accommodation for any time of the year.
We loved it! The area was beautiful and the cabin was really cute and cozy. There were just a few things that were a miss. You could hear everything in every room. Including the neighbors conversation. There were some small details, like lights in the shower. But the kitchen was great and we had a blast because of the cabin. Thank you so much!
