JAK's Place - A Cozy, Pet-Friendly, Family Cabin

Bedrooms 2
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath (Sleeps 6)

JAK's Place is a cozy family cabin located in the heart of South Lake Tahoe. It is only a few miles from the Heavenly Valley Ski area, four miles from historic Camp Richardson and a mile or two from the Lake. There are forest trails five blocks away for walking, biking, snow shoeing, or cross-country skiing. For those of you who like to throw the dice, we’re about three miles from the casinos. There is truly something for everyone.

Inside the cabin you will find movies, games, puzzles and books to enjoy. It's also just a really great place to hang out.

We love our little red cabin and are thrilled to share it with others. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

You can find additional information and pictures at website.

About Jennifer

JAK's Place was purchased in 2010 and is named after the owners, Jennifer, Abigail and Kevin.

Jennifer purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Jennifer chose Sierra Tract

We fell in love with the little red cabin when we stayed there for two weeks during the summer of 2010. We had no idea there was so much to do during the summer months and had an absolute blast cycling, hiking, paddle boarding and lounging on the beach. We were also amazed at how many things were available for our 5 year old daughter, like a great library, play grounds, and miniature golfing, just to name a few. Our dog Mollie also loves Tahoe, especially running in the meadow and frolicking in the Upper Truckee river, which is just a 10 minute walk from the cabin

Cute family friendly cabin

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay at Jaks Place. We went skiing at Kirkwood, rode the Gondola at Heavenly, went sleigh riding, played board games and ate at the cabin. It was a great time of bonding with my adult children. I highly recommend Jaks Place. The Place was clean and tidy with a nice little kitchen. It was perfect for us.

Had a blast!

  • 5 of 5

Exactly as advertised and a perfect little place to have as home base for a family tahoe adventure. Worked well for two girls to use the bunk beds, one toddler in the second room, and mom and dad upstairs

Great Tahoe Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at JAK's place. The cabin was as described in the listing and Jennifer was very responsive and great to work with. We enjoyed walking in the neighborhood, being in the fresh mountain air and cooking our own meals in the kitchen which was well stocked. Location was great for getting to the snow and when we came in there were plenty of board games and things to do together. Hope to come back again!

Small cozy cabin

  • 4 of 5

ThIs cabin met my main criteria of good price, allows pets and has a fenced yard. The actual living area is small and the TV is up in the loft which made family movie time quite difficult. The kitchen is also small but we were still able to cook a nice thanksgiving dinner. There is no garbage disposal or dishwasher. The fenced yard has no access from inside the house so my thought of just opening the door to let the dog out and me staying in where it was warm did not happen! Overall it us quite nice and clean, nice neighborhood and only a few blocks to a forested hiking area.
