About Don

Our family takes great pride in and loves this house where we have been gathering for special occasions for generations. Most of our guests grow to feel the same way and come back year-after-year. Many of them have started to refer to the Cozy Nostra Lodge as 'our house.'

Why Don chose South Lake Tahoe

Our family has enjoyed Tahoe for generations. Each season of the year is different and has unique aspects and allure. Just when you start to think that you like it in winter the best you have a knock-out summer experience that starts the debate all over again. When you walk into the Cozy Nostra Lodge you feel immediately like you've come back home.

What makes this cabin unique

Our house is spacious and spread out which is good for large family groups to be able to have their 'own space' yet feel that they are a part of the group. The openness of the floor plan let's you be able to see what is going on yet not be on top of one another. Gathering around the large dining room table for special meals often turns into hours of conversation, joke telling, friendly teasing and wine drinking, of course.

  • 5 of 5

I'm a frequent South Lake Tahoe vacationer and like to enjoy the mountains year round. My family and I have been visiting Tahoe and staying at The Cozy Nostra Lodge for the last several years. This is an easy review to write as every time I arrive at the cabin I feel like it is an extension of my home. The cabin is adorned with everything you need to enjoy a long getaway weekend or a longer mid-winter or summer break. Over the years I have also noticed the attention to detail and ongoing upgrade of furnishings and amenities. For a family or group the Cozy Nostra is especially great as is unusual for the area larger size (5bedrooms, 3 bathrooms) works well with multiple children on other guests. The large, beautiful back yard is safe for kids to run around and the garage easily accommodates 4-5 cars. Being so close to everything is truly an added bonus.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and so glad that you and your family had another enjoyable stay at the Cozy Nostra Lodge. We especially like it when guests tell us that it feels like home. I do think though that you meant that the driveway can accommodate 4 - 5 cars not the "garage." In any case, we hope that you'll be back again soon.

Great Cabin, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been twice to this cabin. All ten of us fit comfortably in the 5 bedrooms and three full baths. We had a wonderful time, and largely due to our being able to stay together in one place. The cabin is spacious and conformable, as well as user friendly. We loved that whenever we had a question, we could easily find an answer/directions, either in the information binder or conveniently located postings throughout the cabin. The location is also terrific. We went for walks each morning and evening down to the lake and on the beach. Even though Tahoe can be very busy, especially on holiday weekends like our last stay, this cabin is located in a quiet neighborhood just a few blocks from the lake. The holiday crowds were nowhere to be seen. Highly recommend this to other families/groups.

Perfect Tahoe Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My family uses this cabin every winter for the past 6 years and we couldn't ask for a better cabin. Near the lake, ice skating, sledding, a backyard for the kids. It is great and we come back every year. Very affordable as wel.

Super rustic-feel cabin close to lake

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 7 older adults (two couples and 3 singletons) had a great time at Cozy Nostra. Everything was just as anticipated and better. The skiing is close by, the food store is convenient and the lake is a short stroll. Beds were comfortable and our singletons especially appreciated that the twin bed rooms were not bunk rooms and they could see to read! The cabin isn't fancy but it is so comfortable and amazingly well supplied with everything including (for those who cook) an exceptional supply of good-sized pots and pans and serving dishes. The stairs would be a little precipitous for anybody with mobility problems but as skiers we're risk takers anyway. The common area has plenty of room for everybody to sit and those not interested in watching perpetual football could settle down around the corner. Nice big table for meals. One thing we liked was that instead of having some people with exclusive bathrooms in their bedrooms, all five rooms could share the three bathrooms. This made it so there was always a free bathroom and democracy prevailed. When we arrived, there hadn't been people there for a few days and it was chilly but there are space heaters in the main and upper levels though there is no direct source of heat in the bedrooms or bathrooms. We found, however, that leaving these doors open worked just fine and nobody frosted their patooties. The wood stove was something of a learning curve to control but boy oh boy it can really chuck out the heat and we were very cozy with that. If you're looking for upscale and fancy, this isn't the place - but if you want a comfortable and adaptable space for a group - look no further. Don, the owner, was very helpful and responsive. We thought it excellent value and wouldn't hesitate to go again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Cathie for your glowing review. We enjoyed having you as guests and you and your group are most welcome back, I hope soon. One point of clarification -- in addition to the wood burning stove that roars, there are thermostatically controlled gas wall heaters in both the upstairs and downstairs common areas just outside of the bathrooms and bedrooms that heat the house nicely. Want future guests not to fear that they will be cold getting out of the shower...

Nice place for a large group to enjoy the beauty of Lake Tahoe

  • 4 of 5

This beautiful house has five bedrooms and is good for for the large group to enjoy the nature of the Lake Tahoe. We had a group of nine people and stayed in the house for 4 nights. It just blocks away from the lake shore and close to everything (shopping, skiing, hiking etc.). We really like the setups of the house. It's comfortable and clean. I wish it had the laundry (washer) in the house, that's the only thing I think will make this house perfect.

It was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We were blessed to be able to stay at the Cozy Nostra for my daughters wedding and Christmas. It was magical ! Such a very cozy place to return to after a days events. We enjoyed the wood stove as the snow piled up outside. There was plenty of room for all. We cooked huge meals on the wonderful gas stove, played games and watched a few movies. It is a very short walk to Lake Tahoe where we enjoyed the new snow. The wedding was at Edgewood and if you get a chance I would encourage you to visit. Everyone was so helpful and friendly! A wonderful time was had by all. Thank you so much.
