About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

This classic North Lake Tahoe cabin was built by our family in the 1970's and it's been a year-round family vacation home since then. A large great-room upstairs has seen many games of Risk and Murder! (the family equivalent of Parcheesi) through the years. Also upstairs is the kitchen, dining area and one bath. There is a new sofa sleeper in the living area also. The large new redwood deck upstairs off of the main living area is perfect for BBQ and socializing-its forested setting is quiet and peaceful. The main entrance to the home is downstairs. Off the entry way there are the 3 bedrooms-#1 with a Queen bed, #2 with a Queen and a twin, and #3 with a Queen and 2 twins. The shared bath and laundry room are also off the entry.

We recently re-decorated and updated the home and also purchased new linens. Walk to the beach or hang out at home-Our family has been enjoying this home for generations, we are sure your family will also!

About Owner/Property Manager

Our parents built this home when we were in high school (1970s). It has been a year-round family gathering place all these years. Now we own a home 2 doors down, and my brother has a cabin in Agate Bay also!

Owner/Property Manager purchased this cabin in 1970

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

Agate Bay is a peaceful community of homes on large lots, a perfect place for long walks. Walking distance to the lake and close to skiing, restaurants and shopping. The perfect North shore location!

What makes this cabin unique

Serenity! Great North Lake Tahoe location. Walk to national forest land, snowshoeing, sledding areas.

'Just Like Home' Family Cabin ~ A Great Value!
average rating of 4.8 based on 5 reviews

Wonderful place to celebrate our 22nd anniversary Judy and Lance

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in your wonderful home in Lake Tahoe while celebrating our 22nd anniversary.

The open layout is really great and welcoming and the house was equipped with everything we could think of for supplies and comfort. We especially enjoyed relaxing out on the deck with a gorgeous view of the woods nearby.

The owners gave us great ideas for activities, including their favorite restaurant for celebrating our anniversary!

Thanks so much. We'll be back for sure!

Knob Hill Summer Mini Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed our stay at this family cabin. The upstairs had an open floor plan which was a perfect layout and very spacious. The kitchen and outdoor grill was fully equipped with all you needed to make simple meals. It was close to a walking path to one of the beaches. The owners were very accomodating and responsive.

Great place, especially for a holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay in your home! It was as beautiful as we expected, all eight of us were perfectly comfy, and your kitchen had all the supplies we needed to prepare and serve our Thanksgiving meal. We even got a little dusting of snow on our last night. It's a consensus that we want to come back for our next Tahoe family get-together.

Best white Christmas ever with friends and family at this awesome house

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying that this is an awesome house and the customer service of the owner, Peter is great. The location is nice, very close to the lake so summer vacation will be fun. We went in winter and it was a perfect white Christmas. There is a Safeway for grocery and other services near by so that is very convenient. There is also a snow park with sledding hill and snow mobiles, so fun for kids and adults. The house itself, has a big, open living room with huge windows which gives an great view, just as you can see in the pictures. For a party of 6-8 people this was the perfect house. It has a nice fire place style heater to cuddle up around with your loved ones. The house is well equipped and we simply had a great time there. I want to mention the customer service extended by Peter, we were having so much fun here that we wanted to extend our stay for another day. I requested Peter and he took the effort to call the cleaners to reschedule and made other arrangements so that we could enjoy our vacation.

This is a lovely, quiet, well-established neighborhood with nice homes on large lots. Its a great place to walk in a forested setting. There are nature trails accessible from the home.
