The kitchen has another table in it with barstools, and ample cupboard space with all the amenities you may want or need during your stay. Off the dining area is a sliding glass door that exits out to a sunny wrap-around deck. The deck has just been remodeled with expansions and wrap around seating. Its great in both winter and summer. The deck and house sits low off the street, so you have privacy with a nice yard, and a meadow behind the house. Patio furniture and barbecues make the summertime outdoor activities worth looking forward to. Off the side yard is deck with forest views and separate deck with Hot Tub. You can soak in the tub for hours, enjoying the meadow views.

Down the hall from the living area, is a full bathroom, laundry room and two bedrooms. One room has a queen bed , TV, and has a sliding glass door that exits out to a private deck with a view that looks out to a the meadow the house sits on. The other bedroom, has a pillow top King size poster bed, TV, and meadow views.

Up the stairs are two more enclosed bedrooms, and a loft. The Master bedroom is large and has a King bed, and twin bed, TV/DVD and bathroom. The high A framed beam ceilings, and the triangle windows above the bed really makes this room special. At night you can see stars, and in the morning you can see the colors of the sky's sunrise. Off the Master is a alcove with twin bed, and another full bathroom with skylights. The loft is adjacent to this with 2 twin beds, TV,and doubles as a game room.

Why Lake Tahoe chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

Lake Tahoe has been my playground for 20 years. With all the traveling I’ve done, there is nothing compared to the amenities and beauty the Tahoe basin has to offer. I purchased my first home here in 1992 and decided to share it with others when not in use. I now have many 5 and 6 bedrooms homes I offer for your enjoyment. Each have hot tubs, most with pool tables and in locations that allows easy access to the Lake and Ski resorts. They were purchased for vacation rentals and are designed to be user friendly with all the amenities of home. I have a full time staff that includes cleaning, maintenance and will respond within 24 hours for all your needs. Feel free to call me about my other homes, or to just to discuss the perfect ski run on the perfect day.

What makes this house unique

Love the location and all the hiking around the house. You can wake up, get a cup of coffee and walk right from the house to one of the many trials with lake views. A total Tahoe experience.

The neighborhood is surrounded by tall pines and unlimited hiking trails, yet Kings Beach with restaurants and shopping is right down the street. Great Lake front restaurants and always something to do. The casinos are 3 miles away with gambling, music and spa services.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks Sandy for accommodating my family. It was a pre-Christmas present that we will always remember. The cabin was really comfortable and loved the open living area and found the beds and bedrooms great. Kitchen was well stocked ( thanks for 2 coffee makers ) and enjoyed sitting at the dining table playing games. Kids used the sledding hill often, adults enjoyed watching them!

We hope to return sooner than later.

wonderful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our stay in this home. Not only was it clean, we really enjoyed the mountain decor and the homeowners thought of everything to make our stay in their home comfortable and fun. After a long day on the mountain we were excited to get back to our cabin. We had 2 families of 4 stay and there was more than enough room for us all to have plenty of room. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home and make awesome memories with our family!!!

Absolutely beautiful area with a great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Location: Lords Way is the PERFECT location for exploring north shore Tahoe. It's just a quick 30min from Tahoe City, 25min from Sand Harbor, 25min from Donner, 15min from Incline Villiage, and just 7min away from a 24h Safeway so you literally have everything you need for a fun adventure at the beach or in the mountains. It's also the perfect location because it is close enough to town to pop in for some fun but far enough away to get away from the touristy holiday-ers. The area surrounding the cabin is very beautiful and is ripe for exploration and hiking.

Cabin: The cabin is very cozy and great for a group of 10. They really used their space well to maximize occupancy without making it feel over crowded. The open floor plan lets you be in the kitchen, dining room, and family room all at once which is perfect for a fun weekend away. The hot tub is very nice (especially in the snow) but can be a little tricky at first since the buttons are a bit worn so be patient. Home comes with hotel hair dryers which is a fun perk.

Things to be aware of:

1. Wifi and cell reception can be a spotty but you're on vacation in the mountains so who cares

2. You'll need to supply your own firewood so bring some up or grab some from the local Safeway

3. If you're staying for a while, make sure to pack extra soap and shampoo, as stated in the description they supply you with a basic amount to get your stay going

Don't ever book this place

  • 1 of 5

We stayed here for 3 nights. It was our worst experience ever.Poorly managed place with outdated old furniture. Rooms are very very small. Most of the things dont work. Oh and deposit refund.. lol forget getting it full.

Owner's Response: This review has nothing to do with the house and everything to do with having to keep $150.00 of their security deposit to get the house back to the condition they found it. This group arrived with 8 adults, 7 kids, and left my house a wreck. $150.00 of the security deposit was charged by my maids to move 2 beds back, 1 from downstairs to upstairs, missing bedding, remove food and wine stains on floors, and dispose of trash everywhere. The cleaning fee covers the cost of cleaning after departure unless the house was abused. My handyman lives a block from the house and tenants were instructed to call if something doesn't work. They stayed 3 nights with no calls and no issues until I reminded them of the fees for excess cleaning.

The house was very clean and well furnished with all that we needed for our week's stay. We had twelve in our group and the place was plenty large enough to accommodate us. Particularly enjoyed the large dining room table and the ability to sit as a family and enjoy good conversation following a meal.

Fun family house. Enjoyed our stay.

  • 4 of 5

Great location. Fun place. Hot tub worked well. Could use a little AV love to get sound system in living room and TVs in the bedrooms all tuned up, but the main one worked fine so we were OK with it. Lots of kitchen equipment. Not much in the way of spices, foil, ziplocs, etc. in the kitchen, but there's a safeway close if you gotta have it. Plenty of towels and TP. Nice decorative motif and the beds/bedrooms were good. It was perfect for our group.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review and I'm glad you enjoyed the house! I just switched out Dish for all TV's having DVR's that will allow tenants to record their favorite shows. Yes, most cooking items available in kitchen but I don't keep it stocked with spices alum foil etc. There usually is some in the kitchen left from previous tenants. Hope I can host your family again in the future!

This house is in the middle of the Northshore and has easy access to all Lake Tahoe has to offer. 1.5 miles from the highway, getting around the Tahoe Basin is effortless. The drive around the Lake is breathtaking and you'll enjoy the different little towns that surround the Lake. . The house is in a quiet pocket of homes just up from the Lake at Kings Beach .All the homes here sit on a meadow with tall pine trees, and roads dead end at the hiking trails. Winter and summer they are used and maintained by the forest service. It borders the Tahoe Rim trail which is a destination for some with endless hiking trails you can access from the house. Brockway Summit is well know for its path to Tahoe City, and Watson Lake is worth hiking too. You can walk in the summertime to our neighborhood park, North National Park. The park encompasses approximately 124 acres of predominantly active recreational activities. An 18 par fitness course, ball fields, Frisbee Golf, playground are just a few options. In the wintertime they offer a nice sledding hill for tubing and snow fun. Within 20 min to all the ski resorts on the North Shore, Northstar in the closest and newest village. The village was modeled after Beaver Creek Colorado...cobblestone sidewalks, copper roofs and a multitude of restaurants and shops that line the 'square'. The square is an ice skating rink in the wintertime and roller skating in summer. The bon fire pits and outdoor bars are always there. Its a wonderful setting to hang out at especially at night. Skiing here is family orientated with lots of ski programs for all ages, and a pristine mountain that keeps a good grasp on good snow conditions. If your staying a week, I highly recommend taking advantage of the other resorts also. A bonus is from the house you can drive the back way to Alpine and Squaw Valley which will eliminate the morning traffic through Tahoe City. Both mountains have tons of excellent skiing, and mountain biking in the summertime. MT Rose is where to go for open terrain, Diamond Peak for kids and an easy day skiing. Both are 15 min to the house. In the summertime, Kings Beach just down the street is a State Park with lifeguard and lake toys to rent. The beach is the highlight with wide sandy beaches, and views you have to experience to appreciate. There are also smaller beaches up and down the strip for reading a book, and dog beaches for your loved ones. Brockway golf course in Kings Beach is a must for those that just want a good time. One of the top 9 hole courses in California, its known for its yardage and views. In the wintertime the course becomes a snowmobiling park. Tahoe City is 12 miles away and offers another nice city with shops, restaurants and outdoor venues. The Truckee River is our playground for fishing, river rafting, and bike baths to view all. A nice day is renting your bike in Tahoe City and riding to River Ranch. This is a river front restaurant with large outdoor patio at the entrance to Alpine Meadows. Here is where the river tours end and usually where the rafts have issues. You can spend the day here watching the rafters and enjoying their menu and drink. Between the location , amenities of the house, and your favorite family or friends, you'll have a great home to stay at while getting a true Lake Tahoe experience.
