Welcome to Carolyn’s Great Family Cabin located in the quiet historic Bijou Pines. Our neighborhood has pine-tree lined streets, historic cabins, minimal traffic and a woodsy atmosphere making it a great place to take a stroll or ride a bike. Then back at the cabin you can continue to enjoy the outdoors by relaxing on the front porch or the backyard deck in our spacious yard. Enjoy barbecuing, a bottle of wine, a hot cup of coffee or watching the kids play while feeling right at home.

The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need for preparing your home cooked meals. The large yet cozy living room with knotty pine walls and a high ceiling has a beautiful old stone/rock wood burning fireplace and plenty of seating. Snuggle up, listen to music, watch a movie or visit with family and friends for those lasting memories.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Carolyn's cabin is awesome and has everything you will need - I mean everything! We had a great time at Lake Tahoe and the cabin was the perfect place to come back to after a day on the lake. Carolyn is great too and we can't wait to go back. -----------------------Guest Submitted comments in our guestbook link

Homey and cute house

  • 5 of 5

This is my 7th year staying at Carolyn's cabin. It is a comfortable home with ALL the amenities. There is a huge backyard with deck furniture and a BBQ. It's in walking distance to the lake. The neighborhood is extremely quiet and best of all it's very reasonably priced. I highly recommend. You couldn't possibly be disappointed.

great spacious fully-equipped cabin in South Lake Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable cabin in a residential area of South Lake just a few blocks from the lake. Huge, fenced in yard for dogs. Stairs to second level are narrow and steep. Well equipped kitchen, good shower, comfortable furniture. Great place to relax.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed. The stairs add to that Old Tahoe charm. Look forward to your return on your next get-a-way to Tahoe. Carolyn

Quiet, comfortable and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week-long stay at the cabin. It was really comfortable and homey. It's a large house and there were just 2 of us (plus our dog Harry), so we had plenty of space. The master suite upstairs is amazing.The kitchen is equipped with the basics as far as utensils, pots/pans, etc. There is a huge yard and a wonderful outdoor space. Safeway is very close by which was very convenient, and it's only about 2 blocks from the lake. It was a great base camp for some fun beach days and hikes nearby. We'd definitely give it a strong recommendation. I've been a member of VRBO for over 20 years and this rental ranks very high for the Tahoe area for the price. Thank you, Carolyn!
