Property description

Pioneer Trail Cabin is a premiere retreat vacation home conveniently located in the heart of South Shore. This home is an authentic Tahoe cabin located on the same historic trail that once led the pony express, wagon trains bound for wealth to the Com stock Lode, and pioneers in search of the Wild West! To experience this cabin means to experience the very essence of Tahoe. Relax in complete privacy, under the sky among a canopy of pine and aspen in a pristine hot tub or wonder the area and view a tribute to our pioneering history. A genuine period trail wagon makes the perfect photo opportunity to commemorate your stay with your beloved family and friends. While on the ranch you will notice the magnificent gardens which are landscaped to a natural Tahoe setting with a lovely collection of Sierra natives. Step inside the cabin and prepare to be stunned. You will notice a tasteful blend of reclaimed redwood, cedar, pine, and earth gaged slate tile.

Pioneer cabin is easily accessible with a level entry and large parking area. The cabin is beautifully designed with 100 year old redwood floors reclaimed from century old farm houses. The beams and other cedar heart wood accents were all saved from old Tahoe cabins being demolished. Earthen slate tiles may be found through out the home. Although the cabin is immaculately clean you will feel comfortable and relaxed the moment you arrive. Do not let the term 'pioneer' fool you - this cabin is completely furnished and equipped with all the modern conveniences of your own home while keeping in the original spirit of the old west.

2 bikes available.....: For your summer fun two beach cruiser bicycles (his and hers) are available for your use!
B.Y.O.H. bring your own helmets!

A 'Lakeside Beach' pass is provided as well. Lakeside Beach is within walking distance from the cabin! A pass is required for entry to the private beach so don't forget it!

In closing we would like to share with you as owners of this home, we strive to make this cabin user friendly, functional, clean, comfortable, and relaxing for all of its' guests. We enjoy sharing memorable, quality, moments with each other, our friends & family. Pioneer Trail Cabin is conducive to this mindset of ours. It is a fun, warm, cozy cabin with great amenities. If you choose our home for your next vacation, we feel confident you will come away with wonderful memories that will last for years to come!!! You can trust your stay with us will be a good experience handled in a very professional manner. Welcome to Tahoe!

Owner info

About the owner: We live in Tahoe year round. We own 2 Tahoe cabins we operate as vacation rentals. We personally handle every aspect of the rental (i.e. cleaning, booking, hot tub, gardens, marketing..) Our cabins are not in a property management program which allows us to control and maintain the strict standard to which we hold our properties. We strive to continually improve the quality of the experience for our guests. We are always available to lend a hand or help out with an unforeseen obstacle( i.e.jump a battery, help with chains, blown fuse, light bulb out, restaurant directions, emergency gift...)If you have special plans for someone (flowers,wine...) let us know how we can help. We love that kind of stuff. We hope you will give us the opportunity to share our cabin with you. We are confident you will very pleased with the accommodations and service. Sincerely, Frank and Jeri

Why the Owner Chose Pioneer Trail:
We love Tahoe. We have a hard time imagining living anywhere else. We are invested in our community (through our businesses, our relationships, our properties and some day our children!) We want to share quality time in Tahoe with our family and friends who come to visit. Our goal is to have a place we can enjoy now and pass on to the future generations of our family later. We are honored and proud to be apart of this amazing property in Lake Tahoe.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Frank and I really love staying at the cabin. We've worked on Pioneer Trail Cabin for years and it is now what was once just a vision in our minds. We really appreciate and enjoy what we have created and we know you will too. We tend to have a morning soak in the hot tub with a cup of Joe. We cook on the grill, play cards, and garden. We ride our bikes. We 'people watch' and walk around down town. We plan and take day hikes and come back for wine by the fireplace. We walk for groceries and just about everything else. We host dinners at sunset and lunches at the picnic table. We sled and play in the snow (it's not just for the kids. right!) Staying at Pioneer Trail Cabin stimulates your sense of adventure while replenishing the soul. This home just feels good. We are confident you will enjoy your time at the cabin as thoroughly as we enjoy ours. Sincerely Frank and Jeri
