Delightful Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for several days during July 2016. The cabin is very conveniently located off Highway 50, but far enough away not to hear any road noise. It is also just a few minutes away from the local grocery outlets and restaurants. The cabin itself was very comfortable and peaceful. Everything was clean and in good condition and it was a relaxing place to unwind at the end of the day. It felt like a resort nestled in South Lake Tahoe. The upstairs loft was a nice touch and helped create a very open-air feeling to the floor plan. I would definitely recommend this place to others and stay here again.

Perfect High Sierra Base

  • 5 of 5

This very clean, very comfortable house sits about 6300 feet above sea level on a lovely piece of wooded property located in exactly the right part of South Lake Tahoe - away from the crowds, close to markets and services, and on the doorstep of all the outdoor activities the utterly amazing Sierras have to offer. The house, we learned, was designed and constructed by the owner, a master architect-builder who was very responsive to our questions. We spent our week on astonishing High Sierra hikes and swam every day in cold mountain water. Back at the house, we enjoyed the well-stocked kitchen, spa-equipped bathrooms, bright dining room, breezy bedrooms with their lush mattresses, the roomy den - where we watched the memorable Rio Olympics on a large flat screen TV - and especially the deck, which overlooks the woods and mountains out back, and where we took advantage of the gas grill every night. With design and decor decisions that bring a kind of chill Four Seasons quality into a rustic setting, this house absolutely fits the description as a "tranquil and serene retreat" - call it authentic NorCal relaxed luxury. Only problem was that we had to leave. Highly recommended.

Nice cabin with much detail!

  • 5 of 5

My Wife and I booked this home to spend time with our three children and their friends. Michael has done a great job with the architectural design as well as the many details through out the home. The views from the deck in the backyard are amazing. When our trip was over, Michael the owner had asked if there was anything else that might make the home more enjoyable. We truly had a wonderful time and highly recommend this home for a family getaway! Well done Michael, thank you!

Spectacular views of woods through out the house.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in a great quite location in the woods. The house had some spectacular views of the surrounding woods through out the entire house. Very cozy and conformable home with all the modern amenities. My Children loved the grassy spacious back yard. The Master bedroom bathroom was amazing and so relaxing with the spacious jacuzzi tub over looking the forest. I highly recommend this home .

Perfect White Christmas

  • 5 of 5

We were so glad that we chose this house for our Christmas get away. First of all, Michael is very helpful and considerable, who even replied my email around midnight. The instructions of running the house is very written. Although the oven needed some repair, we still managed to turn it on by following the workaround steps posted on the cabinets. And it cooked my best chicken wings. Then, the house is absolutely gorgeous. We arrived at Christmas Eve after driving through heavy snow storm, and were absolutely tired and hungry. The home gave us a big warm welcome: the Christmas tree covered with snow was lighted out of the kitchen window. The high end kitchen appliances are very efficient, so we had a quick and warn dinner in less than half an hour. My daughter was lucky to spend her first white Christmas in this home. She rode on her sled every morning and afternoon for three days in the backyard. She even crawled in the snow. Before this trip, her favorite place for vacation was Hawaii. Now she said Tahoe was better than that. We highly recommend this home for family vacation, especially for the those who with little kids.
