About Mike Paul

We grew up in Fremont, CA but have been living in the Lodi area for 40+ years. We went to school at Washington Union High School and San Jose Community College.

Mike Paul purchased this cabin in 1970

Why Mike Paul chose Homewood

We grew up vacationing at Meeks Bay Resort at Lake Tahoe. When we decided to buy our own cabin, we bought a lot in Tahoe Swiss Village and spent our summer weekends with a couple of carpenter friends building this home.

What makes this cabin unique

We chose this area to build a cabin because it had its own private Association beach and pier. We enjoy boating and this place lets us do that easily. There are buoys that are available to rent from the Association.

Wonderful weekend

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the cabin's cozy atmosphere. The location was great and enjoyed the short walk to the dock. We are hoping to visit again soon.

Beautiful, nicely priced cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully remodeled cabin, very close to the Homewood resort, with some fun high tech extras like a trash compactor and a bear fence. The only negative thing about this cabin is that it doesn't have a large dining room table. However it was perfect for our company of 4 adults and 5 kids. The kids were comfortably seated at the bar for meals and the two upstairs bedrooms were large enough for them to both sleep and play board games etc in. Also the living room couch is large enough for a lot of people. Beds in all bedrooms were very comfortable and bathrooms are beautiful (very modern). Additionally we came up during a storm and had frequent contact with the owner who could not have been more accommodating. Instant replies and all issues was solved to everyones satisfaction. When booking I opted for the insurance since I felt the $1500 deposit was a bit steep and you never know... However after getting to know Mike Paul I would not hesitate to pay the deposit and feel safe that I would be fairly treated. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. The family area is indeed small for a large group. Summer time is a little easier to deal with as the deck provides so much space. I appreciate your sense of humor with the amount of snow that week!

Very clean, great neighborhood, quiet. Plenty of room. Loved the kitchen/family room area.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time cooking meals, playing games, enjoying the private beach, and hiking Tahoe area trails. The cabin was perfect for the six of us. The kitchen/family room area was awesome. Had everything we needed to prepare meals and sit around relaxing. We also enjoyed sitting on the deck taking in the peaceful forest.

Any questions we had were quickly answered by the owner.

We will be back in the future. The cabin and area are great!

This is the place to relax.

  • 5 of 5

Took my family of 4 to 1st Cabin and had a great time. We needed to relax and got what we asked for. Good location, short drive to everything on the West Shore. Great owners to deal with, friendly and always returned my emails quickly with answers.

We will be back!

Great experience

  • 4 of 5

Our family recently stayed in the Paul's cabin and it was fantastic. Very comfortable and plenty of amenities. Nicely updated kitchen and bathrooms. The owner even called to check in to be sure all was as expected when we arrived. We had one minor hiccup and he made sure is was taken care of. Loved our daily morning time out on the deck. We would definitely consider staying here again.
