About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

You will not be giving up creature comforts to enjoy the 'Old Tahoe' charm of this dog friendly Lake Tahoe log cabin vacation rental. Enjoy the towering evergreens as you relax in the sun on more than 700 square feet of decks. Use the gourmet gas grill for a mountain air BBQ. Soak in the outdoor hot tub or share special times with family and friends around the gas campfire ring.

With just the push of a button, warm by the cozy living room fire. Gather around the dining table for games while a CD plays in the background. Or watch cable TV, use the free high speed wireless internet, or watch DVD’s or videos. The fully equipped kitchen with its new gas range, microwave oven and stone counters makes dining in a pleasure. There is a ping pong table in the garage for kids and adults alike.

Eight to twelve can be accommodated in comfort and style. The 'Oak Leaf' master bedroom with a king-size bed and the 'Pinecone' full bath are on the ground floor. Upstairs, the 'Forest Fern' bedroom offers a queen-size and a double bed. 'Camp Run-A-Muck' is a large dorm style room with two single-over double bunk beds, a foozball table, TV, VCR and CD stereo. There is a half bath on the second floor.

During the summer months guests of this log cabin have access to a shared pier, buoys (as available by reservation), community swimming pool, grassy lawn area with snack bar, sand volleyball court, and tennis courts. The pool is open from mid-June to Labor Day. NOT ALL AGATE BAY HOMES HAVE ACCESS TO THESE FACILITIES BUT THIS HOME HAS FULL ACCESS. A link to a virtual tour of these facilities can be found further down the listing page just above the map area of the listing.

Lake Tahoe, Carnelian Bay, and Patton Beach (dog friendly) is a short .5 mile walk from the home. There is plenty of off-street parking. The charm and amenities of this vacation rental cabin will keep you coming back year after year.

About The Owner

We live in San Francisco and purchased this home to rent first and use second. We have equipped the property with items that allow everyone from children to grandparents to enjoy their Tahoe vacation.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2008

Why The Owner chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

We really enjoyed the log construction of the cabin and the natural ambiance of the home. As we continued to look at homes in the Tahoe area, we really enjoyed the Agate Bay area and that this specific home had access to the community swimming pool, tennis courts, and pier and buoy field.

What makes this cabin unique

In the summer, you will enjoy the large redwood deck that includes the hot tub, patio furniture, and fire ring (who need to camp to have smores?). You can also walk to Patton Beach (dog friendly) and Carnelian Bay (Gar Woods restaurant, CB's Restaurant, Miniature Golf Course, and more). The rental cabin is 3 miles from Kings Beach where the best grocery store in Tahoe is located (Safeway) and is only 7 miles to Tahoe City for shopping, restaurants, river rafting, and more.

In the winter, the home is centrally located to Northstar, Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley so you can go to the best resort based on weather conditions and ability levels. The home is also located just 5 miles from Lake Tahoe Cross Country, 5 miles from the north shore casino's, and you can start a snow shoe trip just down the street.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This is the second year in a row that we have stayed in the Taylor cabin. It is such a comfortable and cozy cabin. The ping pong table is a huge hit with the kids, and we all enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit each night. Our dogs enjoyed laying on the back deck too! We are hoping to even make a trip back this fall.

Great House!

  • 4 of 5

We spent the crazy busy week between Christmas and New Years at the Taylor home skiing with another family. We managed to not feel cramped in the 1600 square feet with 10 people! The layout is nice for two families, the bunk room set with old school VHS/DVD player the kids loved. Our 6 kids (13-5) watched classic Disney movies every day and enjoyed their space. We didn't find a foosball for the table, which would have been nice. Everything you could need was in this house, including things we hadn't expected like spices, a crock pot, and LOTS of pots and pans. The key was frozen in the hot tub and the management company very quickly helped us fix the problem. I would suggest some more lighting/replacing light bulbs. It was a little dark at times and the heat was a little spotty. Overall, though, this was a great fit for us for the week! I would stay there again.

Awesome House

  • 5 of 5

The house is awesome. We rented the house because it was pet friendly and within walking distance to a great off-leash beach area at Carnelian Bay. The house is clean, very comfortable and spacious with a nice patio in the backyard. I will definitely rent this property again.

Family fun!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for us!!! There was plenty of room for the 5 adults and 3 children. The house was clean, well maintained and stocked, and close to everything, but felt like we were in the country. The cabin felt like a cheerful second home!

Excellent location!

  • 4 of 5

This home is perfectly located in a quiet neighborhood just blocks from the lake! It fit our family perfectly, including our dog.

The house was not as clean as we would like, especially given how much you pay for a cleaning fee.

Otherwise, it was a perfect summer getaway in a fantastic place!

We spent a wonderful Thanksgiving at the Taylor

home. It is in a great neighborhood for walking the

dog and the neighbors we met were very friendly. We

especially enjoyed the gas fireplace and the
