About Chris Freese

I'm a Virginia native who vacationed in Lake Tahoe as a child, and absolutely fell in love with the area. I moved to South Lake Tahoe in 1998. Now living full time in my R.V, I keep this cabin as a vacation home. We really enjoyed decorating this cabin in a rustic motif.

Chris Freese purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Chris Freese chose South Lake Tahoe

Old Tahoe charm

What makes this cabin unique

This house is exactly what you imagine for a cozy Tahoe cabin. Cozy 1940's feel surrounded with wood accents . Located at the 'Y' at the end of town closer to the nice beaches and shopping.

urban, but charming and cozy

  • 4 of 5

Darling interior with refreshing vintage features, including knotty pine walls and ceilings, which create a cozy and warm interior. The open design of the living room and simple kitchen keeps things airy and bright. The gas fireplace heats the whole house well and is backed up by a wall unit in the bedroom that looks like a neon fire. I thought it looked weird at first but grew to like it. I'm in the group of reviewers that felt the bed was taco-like, but we slept better the second night after ditching the polyester bedspread.

We chose this end of South Lake (and this cabin) for its old school charm, as opposed to modern monstrosity and gleam, because it allows dogs, and because it is far from the casinos and close to outdoor activities. We zipped out south 89 to Carson Pass for snowshoeing and ate dinner at Sorensen's on Saturday then followed up Sunday with a day hike to Cascade Falls, walking the dog along Kiva Beach and worked in Beacon's on the lake for a sunset cocktail.

We were surprised when we arrived to see this little cutie stuck in a rundown neighborhood, complete with a broken car in front of the house and an RV stashed on the side (although the RV provided a little privacy block from the neighbor's shack while we soaked in the sweet hot tub). In the middle of winter these unsightly sights probably aren't much of an issue but in warmer months the bare yard and surrounding houses in the back could be a downer. Regardless, the dog loved it and we had a lovely time. PS - I'm a coffee snob and tried in vain to find a melitta cone filter in town to add to the kitchen cupboard, but ended up coaxing a decent pot by pouring water from the kettle over the Mr Coffee basket.

Nice stay... But..

  • 3 of 5

Cute, cozy...but thermostat needs to be fixed. Either full on and place gets too hot or turn off and too cold overnight. Bed too soft.. Need new mattress.

Owner's Response: Yes the brand new thermostat on the fireplace was having issues. The unit was serviced and now is in perfect working order. The recently purchased pillow top mattress may be a little soft for some peoples likings, but over all have had many positive reviews on the comfort of the bed.

I enjoyed my stay very much. The cabin is cozy, efficient and includes a hot tub. Chris (owner of cabin) was super helpful and easy to reach. He went above and beyond to make sure our stay was comfortable.

We stayed here over Thanksgiving. The cabin was exactly like the pictures. As a pet friendly property, it was VERY clean. It is also well outfitted with everything you need: plenty of towels, blankets, kitchen gadgets. After a long day of Black Friday shopping, we enjoyed the hot tub, which was well maintained, and looking at the stars on a cold snowy night. Communication with the owner was easy and warm. We loved this cabin. You will too.

Warm & cozy!

  • 5 of 5

We came up for the weekend and after a couple hours drive in the cold and opening the door to a warm lit fireplace was amazing! The cabin photos didn't give this place justice. It was so cute, comfortable , quiet, and everything we could ask for! My fiance loved the fully loaded kitchen with everything we needed to make a full breakfast and dinner. Amenities were great, including get the All Free laundry detergent (very smart)...thank you!
