About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 8

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

Great family cabin

  • 5 of 5

First the cabin is bigger than it looks in the picture, the yard is big, and walking distance to the local supermarket. My kids loved the yard and the snow around the area, the lake is walking distance. Everything is provided to make you comfortable, from wi-fi to towels. I would recommend a bigger or sizeable grill, maybe a propane grill. overall looking to go back soon.

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great time staying at this cabin. It is close to the lake as well as stores and restaurants. The Bijou neighborhood is cozy and quiet. An ideal Tahoe get away. Carolyn was friendly and a pleasure to rent from.

Nice stay, quiet and friendly

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Carolyn's house during the Labor Day weekend. Nice stay.

The property is old but well maintained. All appliances work well. In a quiet and friendly community. Walking distance to Safeway and Beach.

Thanks Carolyn for all your effort.

Cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this cabin, and I think it is going to be a yearly tradition.

It is very comfortable and homey with everything we needed to feel at home.

The location is great. Within walking distance to the beach, grocery store and restaurants. Quiet neighborhood. Great for walking. Very large fenced backyard.
