Cute, well located cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in the cabin over the weekend. It's cute, comfortable, and very conveniently located close to Tahoe City, Squaw/Alpine, and Northstar. The cabin is filled with everything you need as well.

Long summer weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our adult family of 4 came from out of state for a wedding in Reno and decided to stay for a few days to enjoy Tahoe. Loreen's cabin was perfect. Less than a 1 hour drive from Reno , short walk to the lake and hiking. The cabin was great too...cozy, clean and plenty of room. Our family enjoyed hanging out on the deck as well. Thanks Loreen for sharing your home with us.

Wonderful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is a yearly or twice yearly vacation for our family of 4. We love the "old Tahoe" feel of this cozy cabin. The location is very convenient to many ski slopes. We usually go to Alpine and Squaw when we stay at this cabin. During the summer, we love the convenient lake access for the kids. The rooms are very comfortable and the mattresses are very comfortable. I have a sensitive back and am always happy with the comfort of the beds in this cabin. Easy access to hiking trails. And of course, very close access to our favorite watering hole, Garwoods! Loween, the owner, is attentive and easy to contact. I look forward to many more visits to this lovely cabin.

Charming cabin

  • 5 of 5

Decorated so family enjoyed our two night stay. So much more spacious inside, than it appears. Kids (5 & 7) had a blast in bunk beds, personalizing each with their possessions. Plenty of room, great decks both off master and at front to enjoy the outdoors, dining and lounging. Good thing it is such a short walk to the water, cause our kids loved being by the shoreline as often as they could be. This cabin is a treasure!
