About Greg Cleveland

We are a couple with one daughter (married in 2013). We vacationed in Tahoe often while she was growing up and love the lake and surrounding area. A Tahoe cabin has been a dream of ours for years and this is our dream come true.

Greg Cleveland purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Greg Cleveland chose South Lake Tahoe

We looked at different homes throughout South Lake Tahoe. As soon as we walked inside this one we knew it was the right place because of the old Tahoe charm mixed with all the modern upgrades that had been installed. Plus it is probably in the best location in South Lake Tahoe, in terms of close proximity to every activity the area has to offer.

What makes this cabin unique

This place is where to stay if you want to feel old-fashioned Tahoe style mixed with all the modern conveniences. It's the place for the perfect weekend or week(s) long stay enjoying the most beaufiful lake in the world.

Great Vintage Tahoe Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Have been coming to South Lake Tahoe for 8 years with a friend for annual girls trip. We stay 2 weeks and love the Bijou Pines neighborhood. We have stayed in 2 other cabins in this neighborhood and while we enjoyed them, this cabin is my favorite. It is rustic, quirky and loaded with charm. You feel right at home the moment you walk in the door. Watching all the critters and birds doing their thing out the front window or from the front porch is a treat. Enjoyed our stay and will definitely visit again!

kitschy cool!

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful stay at the Cleveland Cabin during the 2016 Bicycle Tour De Tahoe. The house is well situated, convenient to the lake and in a woodsy, quiet neighborhood. The house was more spacious than we expected, rustic with lovely details: beautiful working fireplace, quirky rustic furniture and decorations (inspired good conversations), books and board games-- like a hunter's lodge meets woman's parlor--kitschy cool! There was plenty of room in the common spaces and each of the four bedrooms were comfortable; our group had plenty of space to come together but also find quiet corners to do our own thing. It was a bit dark in the interior but that lent to the general ambiance, lamps provided adequate reading light. Wireless was consistently strong in the living room and netflix streamed fine. So many peaceful spots in and around the cabin. I enjoyed sipping coffee, sitting around on the front porch, which was equipped with two chairs and a rustic table. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans etc--a joyful cooking space that seemed to have everything we needed, we cooked several meals inside and also made use of the fabulous outdoor gas grill. After our long bicycle rides, we hung out in the fenced in backyard, an oasis with hot tub, gas grill and picnic table (nifty wagon wheel light above the picnic table). I would stay there again, for the price it is a lovely set up. I recommend this place for families or small groups looking for a comfortable home base from which to explore Lake Tahoe.

Great rustic style with modern convenience! Fantastic location, property is just as described.

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful neighborhood, set aside some time to enjoy the hot tub! Well equipped, easy access to all local attractions, including the great El Dorado Beach. Four bedrooms allowed everyone in the family their own space. Greg was fantastic to deal with, very responsive. This is a great rental!

Pretty nice cabin but had some issues

  • 3 of 5

It's been two weeks and I still do not have my deposit back- Issue #1

We left the place perfect and spotless, so I would have expected my deposit back immediately. When I contacted the landlord a week later, he never apologized and then sent it out the following day after I had to ask him for it. That was monday and its saturday- still no refund.

Issue #2- They might want to add to the description that this place has a very loud giant dog next door that barks the entire time if you sit in the back yard, BBQ or use the hot tub. He growled at us for probably 8 hours- we came to relax. I finally contacted the landlord at about 9pm, but he didn't help us. I asked if I should call the police and his response "Do whatever you want."

The place is super cute, but not worth the money if these sort of problems arise.

Owner's Response: This renter was a problem. We tried to work with her but nothing satisfied her. We have only had one review of less than 5 stars and it was 4 stars. No one else has ever had complaints similar to this renter. This 3 star review is an anomaly due to a problem renter.

Nice Spot

  • 4 of 5

Nice spot close to everything with a great backyard/hot tub/games room. Interesting little place with good character. FYI, I lost some of our deposit for "stains on towels" which came as quite a surprise as we stay up in Tahoe all the time and are very respectful of other peoples property.

Owner's Response: This was only the second time a renter ever lost part of their damage deposit. We were sorry to have to do this, but our cleaners advised the towels had to be replaced after these renters. The amount withheld ($50) was less than the cost of replacing the towels.

Comfortable Cabin Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the most relaxing visit to Lake Tahoe! We were able to bring our two labs with us and they had so much fun playing in the snow! This trip was for my 40th birthday. It was so nice to sit and watch the snow fall. The cabin was perfect for us. We enjoyed all of the quaint decorations and special touches that the cabin offered. We also enjoyed playing a couple of matches of air hockey! This is the perfect place for a family to stay....or for a couple to get away......Will definitely be staying here again!!
