About Jim Holiday

Jim and Kathy Holiday live in Sacramento, CA with their beautiful 12 year old daughter, Veronica, and their dog, Marvin.

Jim Holiday purchased this house in 2008

Why Jim Holiday chose Tahoe City

Before we owned the cabin we used to stay at the property and we loved it. Through the years we built great memories and felt like it was our ‘home away from home’. When the time came that the property was changing ownership we knew we wanted to be part of it. We are now 50% owners of the cabin with my cousin and his family. Every year we put money and effort into improving the cabin so that others can enjoy it as much as we do.

The Tahoe City location is truly the best the lake has to offer in the summer and winter. It is the most charming City the lake has to offer.

What makes this house unique

The cabin is very cozy and comfortable. The way it's situated gives a very secluded and private feel. Large pine trees surround the property and provide additional privacy, and beauty. The 4 person spa on the back deck is particularly enjoyable after a great day of skiing.

Amazing stay in Tahoe City

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 14 international students from the University of Santa Cruz and we spent President's Day week end in the cabin. We loved it, the cabin was absolutely perfect, very spacious and clean and everything was provided (sheets, towels, cooking utensils, TV, heater...). The outdoor grill and the hot tub were very nice as well ! The location was perfect for us, in the heart of Tahoe City (very close to Safeway) and only a 10-15 minutes walk from the lake. We enjoyed out stay very much and we definitely recommend !

Great place for Thanksgiving getaway

  • 4 of 5

There were 9 of us = 6 adults, 3 children, plus 3 dogs so we needed to find a place that would be comfortable. This place was perfect for us. I agree with Jan M. that there were plenty of towels but only a couple of washcloths, other than that however, there were plenty of supplies. Though the cabin is somewhat dated the appliances are fairly new.

It’s a cozy place and would definitely recommend this place to a large family. Yes, Mollie, the neighbor’s dog was there to greet us and visited us daily.

Comfortable and private

  • 3 of 5

I agree with one reviewer about the beds. Everyone thought they were very comfy. Overall the place is comfortable. There's a great private deck with plenty of seating facing the wooded area. The kitchen is a mix of dated and new. Though there were plenty of towels, there were no washcloths. We were glad we brought our own soap as there wasn't any to be found. The location is great! Quiet and convenient -- close to "downtown" and the lake.

Owner's Response: Hi Jan, we will make sure to purchase additional washcloths and soap. Last time we stocked the cabin we had plenty, so thanks for letting us know. I'm happy that you found the cabin to be comfortable and the location great. I hope you enjoyed your stay.

Great Family Fun!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this cabin with our whole family!! Felt very cozy and comfortable, almost like you were staying at a friends cabin, which is how our family rolls!! So close to Tahoe city, which is nice because you can use your bikes and avoid the awful traffic in town! The swimming in the area was no good but that's just because of the drought. We did a big scavenger hunt in town for our dad's 60th and had a blast, most shop owners were happy to help!! Will definitely keep this cabin in mind for future family gatherings!! Oh if you go say hi to the neighbors dog, Mollie, she's a sweetheart!!

Warm, spacious, clean cabin with a hot tub in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a great cabin close to Tahoe City center. It offers all the comfort you need for a multiple family vacation. We enjoyed the snow in the Squaw Valley during the day, and the hot tub at night. We can't wait to come back next year!
