Guestbook comments from the owner

This Cabin was clean, peaceful, well equipped, intimate and highly recommended. We spent Thurs - Mon here celebrating our honeymoon. It was absolutely WONDERFUL in every way. Walking distance to the water, a fun pub called McDuff's,( which we frequented every night we were there) a bowling alley, food, etc. On top of it all? Carolyn is the sweetest while most professional business individual I have ever had the pleasure of exchanging with. She genuinely cares about your stay, and always keeps in (necessary) communication. Two BIG thumbs up to Carolyn and her husband Frank. We most definitely WILL be back!

Beautiful Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Carolyn & Frank's cottage, all the way throught the process, Carolyn & Frank have been outstanding in catering promptly to our needs.

The cottage is spotlessy clean, so quiet, well located and very well equipped. All the little touches (decor) that Carolyn has added makes it even more homely

Really enjoyed our stay and will be back

Carolyn is Super nice and "Home Sweet Home"

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 nights and we all had very good time at her cabin. She's always stay in touch with me when I need to ask any questions during our stay, she helped me a lot to make our stay convenience and comfortable. This cabin has a lot of characters which I love a lot, each bed rooms has a distance so groups can have little privacy from each other. Kitchen items and utensils has plenty of options, make us very easy to cook/clean. Heater works fine to all rooms. Bed is clean and comfortable, good size for two adults. I liked large kitchen and large living room. Huge back yard with 100 years old redwood tree, I enjoyed seeing squellows and birds on the tree. Back yard is very nice, outdoor table and chairs, BBQ grill. I just felt so "home" when I came back from all day ski or bike ride, "home sweet home". Inside the cabin looks a lot different than it looks from outside of the cabin. Inside the cabin is bigger than the photos on website. Hot water is really hot, unlike some other places has low temperature.

There're so many scams of vacation rental in this area, Carolyn is a real, and really nice owner/business person who knows hospitality and has generosity. Thank you so much again Carolyn!

Carolyn's Cozy cabin is just that!

  • 4 of 5

This is probably the 4th or 5th time we have stayed here. We enjoy the cozy atmosphere and open floor plan of kitchen/living room. The cabin is located close to everything and in a quiet, nice neighborhood. We recommend this darling cabin with the knotty pine walls and woodsy inviting bedrooms. It is perfect for 2 to 4 people. We last stay here 2 years ago and could see a difference in the cleanliness of the cabin compared to when Frank and Carolyn cleaned the cabin themselves vs the cleaning service they have now. However, this is probably knit picking because, for the price and charm of the cabin, we would recommend it to our friends.

You can't go wrong to consider renting this cute cabin!

Wonderful place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Carolyn was a sweetheart and helped out through the whole process. The cabin was very cute and accommodating. It was clean, well decorated and fully equipped. The beds were comfortable and the linens were clean. They have sleds at your disposal and my 2 1/2 year old son loved being towed around in one in the spacious back yard. I've rented cabins in Tahoe before but what really set this one apart for me was that Carolyn went as far to make sure that the driveway and walkway was plowed before our arrival! Nothing worse than having to chain up just to get in and out of the driveway! The only downsides for me was no onsite laundry and no dogs. I would totally rent this place again without a doubt!
