About Will Cogswell

The “Tree House” belonged to our parents who lived in Lake Tahoe four months out of the year. Tahoe was their “primary love” since buying a cabin on the West Shore in the late 1960’s. In 2001, when the cabin became too difficult to manage in the winter, they purchased the “Tree House” in Tahoe Tavern. Completely satisfied to stay on property they would walk the grounds and spend hours reading and playing cards in the light of the upstairs. They often talked of the “spirit and calm” they experienced while living in the “Tree House.” With such good memories, we want others to enjoy Tahoe Tavern and the year round amenities that it brings.

Will Cogswell purchased this condo in 2001

Why Will Cogswell chose Tahoe City

Our parents purchased the "Tree House" at Tahoe Tavern because the Tavern is "Old Tahoe." There is such a rich history here, as the site for a magnificent destination hotel at the end of the line for the Lake Tahoe Railroad in the early 1900's. The grounds are open and expansive with many grassy areas dotting the landscape. The access to the lake from the famous Tahoe Tavern pier is incomparable. Lastly the "Tree House" is a wonderful mixture of light, color and views that makes time spent there peaceful and serene.

Owner's Response: It is nice to come to the West Shore of Lake Tahoe and not have to drive your car if you so choose. Not only do you have all the activities on property at Tahoe Tavern, but you are walking distance to rafting, boat, SUP, kayak and bike rentals, the Commons Beach and all of the restaurants and stores you can imagine. We are glad you enjoyed the "Tree House" and look forward to your return.

Perfect Summer Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed a great week in the Tahoe City area. The "Tree House" was a perfect fit for our family of 6. We enjoyed our afternoon time looking down at the tennis courts and neighboring trees while playing board games and getting dinners together. The Tahoe Tavern facility offers a bit of everything one could want while visiting the Tahoe area from tennis and family friendly pool access overlooking the lake to enjoying walks down the 1/4 mile pier. Our unit was well equipped for cooking and we even came home with clean clothes after using the laundry machines in the unit prior to our departure.

The owner is very responsive prior to and during the visit to answer questions about the home along with having a wealth of knowledge about activities and dining in the regional area. We would recommend this property to anyone.

Owner's Response: What a great testimonial about staying at the "Tree House" at Tahoe Tavern! We enjoyed hosting you and appreciated your care of our unit. I'm glad you took us up on some of our suggestions on activities and restaurants. We've been visiting the West Shore of Lake Tahoe for almost 50 years and no many of it's secrets. We look forward to your return visit!

Great location, so much to do

  • 4 of 5

Our family of five (3 kids - 13, 11 and 2) had such a great vacation at the "Treehouse." So close to town, we biked in and back several times. The pool was beautiful, right on the lake. The condo itself was comfortable, with a nice bright large booth to eat meals. (The only negatives -- relatively minor given all the pluses -- were that the two queen beds were uncomfortable, pretty soft and need to be replaced - but the other twin beds were fine.) Will was also a great host, with a really useful list of places to eat and activities. Thanks so much! We look forward to staying again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback on your stay at our "Tree House" and the comments on our queen beds. We treat our guests comfort very seriously. In fact, after four years of renting it to guests, this is the first "four star" review we have ever received. The two queen beds we have at the "Tree House" were purchased 4 years ago and 18 months ago, respectively. I asked the three subsequent renters their thoughts of the beds and each said they were very comfortable. I think "bed comfort" is a personal thing and what one person likes another may not. I do appreciate the feedback and hope you will return sometime in the future.

Wonderful and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 (2 parents and 4 adult children) had a wonderful stay at this Tahoe Tavern Condo! Will was a pleasure to work with. The windows had wonderful views and the condo was both spacious and cozy. The location was ideal for the lake and Tahoe City. Thanks for everything Will!

"Tree House"-a beautiful spot, nestled in trees.

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in Tahoe Taverns "Tree House" over the Labor Day weekend in 2016. It has a cozy, homelike feel with a fireplace for a chilly night, a ceiling fan for the rare occasion that might get too warm, and a deck for reading, relaxing, or just gazing at the stars while nestled among the swaying Aspens. It can be a relaxing place, or a comfortable home base for biking, hiking, shopping or dining at nearby resturants.

"Tree House" is nicely appointed, clean, and flexibly designed. Two bathroom, a kitchen and three bedrooms make it a great spot for family get-togethers.

The owner, Bill, was gracious, helpful, and even gave us some of the unique history associated with Tahoe Taverns and his personal history at "Tree House".

I recommend "Tree House" for family gatherings, but like all of the condos, it is two stories, so keep that in mind if you have someone who can't do stairs.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of your stay. You "zeroed in" on our location, which is a short walk to Tahoe City for restaurants, shopping and rentals for lake play. You can also just walk across the street to find a market, deli and coffee house. Everything you could need and so close! Please come back to see us!
