Overview

About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-4)

PLEASE SEE OUR NEW LISTING #912653

A cozy theme cabin with quality log-cabin style furnishings located on a private wooded lot with direct access to USFS land, it really feels like living in the mountains! Hike out the back less than 2 minutes to incredible views of the lake and Mt Tallac.

We nicknamed the cabin 'The Treehouse' because of it's wooded surroundings and comfy feel. It is two stories with the loft and main bedroom upstairs. The cabin is located at the end of a dead-end street surrounded by forest. Enjoy the hot tub in the middle of a snowstorm or at the end of a long summer hike. My family and friends have spent many fun-filled weeks at the cabin.

In the summer you can bike to Pope Beach and Camp Richardson. In the winter you can hike up behind the cabin and ski or snowboard down Twin Peaks for a little backcountry experience. We love it!

About Heather

I love all the outdoor activities Tahoe has to offer and a few it doesn't: my husband and I travel the world to feed our kiteboarding addiction and to immerse ourselves in a variety of cultures.

Heather purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Heather chose South Lake Tahoe

I moved to South Lake Tahoe in 1999 with the intention of staying one winter and never left. Tahoe is an amazing place! As a lover of the outdoors, it's the most incredible place to live.

Being from Oregon, my family bought a vacation home on the same street as my cabin in 1983. We vacationed in Tahoe every summer and some winters while I was growing up. I have such fond memories of all of us together laughing and playing in this beautiful place. The 'hill' behind my cabin used to be our playground in the 80's. My parents still own their vacation home just one block away.

What makes this cabin unique

Since the cabin used to be my primary residence and I love to cook, the kitchen is well stocked with quality pots and pans, and utensils. There's a PS3 that allows for blu-ray DVD watching and streaming Netflix. I love to listen to music and hang out with friends and family who come to visit. In the summer we BBQ on the deck and eat outside on the picnic table. In the winter, we enjoy evening hot tubs with cocktails. We almost always take advantage of the short hike straight up behind the property for views of the lake.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an amazing time! Yall's place is perfect. Since I've gotten back I've told just about everyone I know they need to go to yall's place. It's cozy, homey, intimate, secluded but close to town, and the short hike up the back hill is really amazing at the top. We took a bottle of wine up there and just hung out for a while taking in the view. I don't think we could have found a better place.

Great cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a fantastic stay in Tahoe for 2 nights. This cabin is off the beaten path, second to last on a dead end road. It was nice and quiet, and just what we were looking for. Hot tub was great after a day on the mountain. If you go in the winter, you can take a nice hike behind the house for your very own fresh powder lines. Plowing on the road to the house wasn't great, but was no problem in an SUV.

Great location away from the hustle bustle

  • 4 of 5

The host was lovely and deserves 5 stars as she was easy to get a hold of and provided the necessary information when called upon. The cabin itself is beautiful and has all the amenities one would need with a hot tub as a added bonus. The cleaners have unfortunately let the cabin and host down from receiving 5 stars (the floors could have been swept clean of the dust and dead ants). Would I stay here again? - Yes! Everything else was perfect despite the slight drawback.

Travelled as a couple

Perfect little family getaway!! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 had a wonderful time! Perfect cozy little cabin in the woods. Awesome spot to play in the snow and to sled right in the backyard! Husband and I was able to soak in the hot tub and watch the kids play in the snow. Couldnt have picked a better rental for our getaway! Had a little bear walk across the deck through the back yard, it was awesome to see the beautiful scenery and nature! Cabin was clean and beds were warm. Town just down the street, heavenly village just a 15 min drive. So happy to have had the chance to stay here we will forever cherish these wonderful memories!
