Map

The house's location makes it the gateway to the West Shore’s unique beauty including: by car in 5 minutes Blackwood canyon with a spectacular hike giving views of Lake Tahoe and Desolation wilderness and then another 5 minutes to Sugar Pine Point one of Lake Tahoe's most beautiful state parks with miles of protected wooded shoreline where you can swim or kayak in the crystal clear water or picnic midst the lawn and trees. At the houses doorstep are adventurous mountain biking trails leading to high altitude meadows with vernal pools.

Great House and Awesome Location in Tahoe City. Very Clean and well stocked and cared for.

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and my brother in law stayed here for 5 nights during the week of the 4th of July. We couldn't have found a better place to stay for everything we wanted. Location, awesome.

This house is located approximately 0.7 miles to Tahoe City. We took our bikes and NEVER had to use our car, even to go to grab a bite to eat at all the great places that Tahoe City has to offer. There is a place called Sunnyside Restaurant which is located about 2 miles from the house, if that.....that serves lunch and dinner out on the deck which overlooks Lake Tahoe. I give this restaurant a 10....we also rode our bikes there to avoid any traffic.

This house is located in the best location I have ever stayed at in Tahoe City. It is surrounded by trees and has a beautiful wrap around deck and barbeque. The location of the house was extremely quiet which is always a plus. The only thing we had to bring here was ourselves, food, and our personal items. The owner keeps this place fully stocked of towels, pillows, sheets, paper towels, silverware, dishes, toilet paper, dishwasher soap and laundry detergent....it was amazing!!!!!! The owner also keeps this house incredible clean, which is a huge thing for us.

We were even able to ride our bikes to the fireworks which were set off in Tahoe City, over the water. We did not have to fight the crowds with driving and trying to find parking. We ate at another great restaurant called Jake's on the Lake, which has a grassy area for people/customers to watch the fireworks, it was awesome. There is also a public beach called Commons Beach which is also very close to the house.

The owner was fantastic to work with. He even called us once we arrived to make sure everything was to our satisfaction!!!! He is/was so kind and so easy to work with not to mention very fair on the price for everything we were getting.

There is an attached garage where we were able to store all of our rafting gear and bikes which was also a great thing. On the deck, which was recently re-done (re-surfaced, the wood) was a very nice patio table and plenty of chairs for those nights that we barbequed or ate outside. The brand new stainless steel refrigerator located in the kitchen was also a great surprise and had more room than we needed both in the refrigerator part and in the large freezer.

I cannot say enough great things about this house. We immediately booked it again for next year and I am counting the days!!!!! Loved it!!!!!!

Great Summer rental

  • 5 of 5

Overall, this is a solid rental and great bang for your buck. The house comfortably fit our party of 8, and we didn't even use the bunk beds downstairs. This is not Tahoe luxury living, but the cabin is very true to the amenity description. Henry, the owner / manager, was exceptionally responsive and helpful with all of our inquiries. I had a question for him when I arrived at the house, and he responded via a phone call within 15-20 minutes, which is quite impressive. He seemed like he genuinely wanted to ensure we had the best experience possible. The kitchen was well stocked. The beds were comfortable. No issues with either of the two bathrooms. The deck was very large, which was perfect for our group to enjoy dinner and drinks outside. There are several small details which may have lowered this rating slightly to a 4.5 out of 5. The outdoor grill is quite small, so only a very limited amount of grilling can be done. A few of the upstairs widows did not have screens, so I chose not to open them rather than potentially get eaten by bugs. The TV is quite dated, uses an antenna for limited channels, and no HD, which is a bummer when Alabama and FSU are playing week 1 of the season. And like I mentioned before, this is not a luxury cabin, but just a good deal with a property manager than you couldn't ask anything more of. I would definitely stay here again.

Very pleasant

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is very cozy and is close to everything. Henry answered all my questions and gave me locations to eat at while in Tahoe. He responds quick to email and the cabin instructions are very easy to follow (check in and out, internet, etc.)

Simple, quaint, clean

  • 4 of 5

Just as described. Very clear communication from owner. But the main winner here is location, location, location. Easiest entry into Alpine or Squaw, tons of other activities around too. Thanks!

Good location, warm and cozy, Henry is the nicest host!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 5 and a couole that joined us and the cabin was perfect for our needs. The only thing I will advise is to bring all the cooking essential (oil, flour, suger, spices etc' even coffee and tea!) as there is nothing in the cabin beside salt and pepper as far as food. Everything else was perfect.

Charming but simple cabin in great location

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was in a great location for a wedding weekend full of activities in the tahoe city area. Walkable to most everything we needed. 4 bedrooms that are clean and simple. Bathrooms are small, but functional. Kitchen had everything we needed. TV has only the basic channels but works. Nice cozy living room with 6 person dining table.

Stairs to the basement bedroom are quite steep and can be a bit dangerous, and the host really prefers that a minimum amount of cooking be done at the cabin.

All in all we really enjoyed our stay and the cabin was everything we needed. Would stay there again!

Owner's Response: I want to thank this guest for staying, as well as his positive comments and wish to return. However, a request not to cook bacon during bear season is not a discouragement for using the kitchen and his comment about the staircase is inappropriate.
