Why Yvette Shipman, Owner & Realtor chose Tahoe Pines
Welcome to what was my first Tahoe Home back in 1998! I am delighted to now be able to share it with you. Located in one of the West Shore's most beloved neighborhoods, Tahoe Pines is great for strolling to the beach, riding bicycles, and easy walks in the woods. It is a very sunny and friendly place. You just might get hooked. :-)
What makes this Cabin unique
The back deck is lovely for coffee in the morning sunshine. There is a spacious mud room, makes for a handy "drop spot". The big dining room is a real luxury and leaves the living room more spacious than found in most cabins. The open upstairs bedroom enjoys lovely sun morning and afternoon, cross ventilation, it's own private half bath and makes for a great 2nd gathering space. Easy parking close to front door. Street level entry. Dog friendly neighborhood, beach and forest.

Like staying in Santa's cabin!
This cabin is magical in the winter time! It honestly feels like you're staying in Santa's personal residence (just the vibe, there were no Christmas decorations). The fire is warm and cozy and the cabin was equipped with everything we needed - kitchen supplies, towels, washer/dryer, etc. It's a quick drive to Homewood ski resort and a short walk away from a beautiful flat hike through the woods - ask Yvette how to get there!
Thank you so much! That really makes us feel good. It once was our family home and we do take a lot of pride in it. Consider it your Tahoe home. Until your next visit, Yvette and Paul, owners
Lovely cabin and location!
Spent spring break at Paul and Yvette’s cabin. Such a lovely cabin and location! So clean and well prepared - we couldn’t have ask for better. We can’t we wait to come back again!!
Wonderful Cozy Cabin with lots of Space!
Loved our short stay at this wonderful cabin. Super clean with plenty of space. We felt right at home. Highly recommend!
Very cozy rustic log cabin in a perfect location in Tahoe. The Home had all the amenadoes we needed.
We enjoyed spending our weekend at this very cozy rustic log cabin in Tahoe. Location was ideal and the hike had all the amenities and more!!! We hope to come back again.
Lovely cabin, in gorgeously quiet surroundings
Perfect little getaway, as close to Homewood as you can get, and still within a stone's throw of the restaurants etc. of Tahoe City. Sweet little place to stay with the family. Plus: everything just works as expected.
The most perfect little cabin!
My husband and I were debating a last minute getaway to Tahoe and finding this cabin available is what made up our minds. It was super last minute but Yvette is super communicative so we were able to get in touch and book right away. While we like snowboarding (the cabin is right by Homewood), what we wanted for this trip was a clean and comfy spot to relax in front of the fire with our old dog while the snow fell. We got that, and then some.
The house is well appointed with many heaters and a fireplace to stay toasty and all the essentials you often find lacking in a rental (tp, soap, fresh sponges, paper towels, tissues, hair dryers, so many clean towels, AND A WAFFLE IRON). Major bonus: There is a washer/dryer in case you get all dirty in the snow. I'm used to bringing my own, but was shocked to see that she provided detergent, fabric softener, and dryer sheets. There are several nearby markets so we were able to cook all our meals in the well-appointed kitchen. My husband loves cooking so he was very into the giant cutting board and the huge sink made it easy to clean up. There's even an honor bar, but we were plenty happy with the bottle of wine Yvette left for us.
Yvette was very upfront that the WiFi service is spotty. But seriously people, you're in the woods, on vacation, live your life, read a book, explore nature. When we needed WiFi to get directions or look something up we popped upstairs to the adorable loft and it worked fine. Otherwise, she's got a cell phone booster so we had decent LTE coverage downstairs for emergencies. There are some rules to prevent the bears from visiting, but only super simple things. Check-out required no work at all!
I love that Yvette and Paul live nearby so it feels even more warm and neighborly. They even provided coffee and brought us fresh cream and croissants! Truly an delightful vacation experience we cannot wait to repeat! Already thinking about going back over summer since it's so close to the lake.
If you're not fully convinced how much we loved it, I should mention that we actually extended our stay for a day since neither us, nor the dog, wanted to leave. Just 15 minutes away is an adorable "dog bakery" so picking up an extra night of dog food was a breeze.
PS When searching places nearby the cabin on Yelp I found a bunch of 5-star reviews for a GORGEOUS photo opp only .3 miles away. With only a 15 minute hike to the top we were blown away by the views (search: Eagle Rock)
The cabin is at lake level with easy access to our quiet neighborhood beach, endless trails in Blackwood Canyon, West Shore Bike Path, bus stop ( Tahoe Area Rapid Transit TART to Incline Village NV, Tahoe Trolly to South Lake Tahoe via Emerald Bay, Homewood Ski Shuttle call-n-ride, Alpine Meadows Ski Shuttle from Sunnyside to Sherwood Chair on the Back-side of Alpine Meadows). For those who enjoy riding bicycles, Barker Pass Road is just around the bend from Tahoe Pines off W Lake Blvd. This initially level road winds through woods, meadows, and over Blackwood Creek, they offers up one of the best practically car-free climb & downhill ride in Tahoe. It is an 8 mile beautifully paved road to Barker Peak. Amazing Lake Views and Star gazing can ba had from Eagle Rock or our neighborhood beach. Nature-walk enthusiasts will delight in the beautifully varied terrain available from the back of our neighborhood. Fairly flat the entire way (2 mile loop +) the walk along a fire road takes you through meadows, Aspen Groves, and passes many access points to Blackwood Creek (woof!).
