                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2001

                  About the owner: We just love this little log style home. Going back in time like you do when you stay at this home is almost gone in Tahoe.

                  Why the Owner Chose Tahoma:
                  We fell in love with the simple life of Tahoe that few homes can still offer. The location is amazing and we love being so close to the water. This is a summer house that was built in the 1930's by the founding editors of Reader's Digest Magazine. Lot 43 was the first lot sold in the subdivision of Meeks Bay and is referred to in the 'Meeks Bay Memories' book. There is a lot of history to our unique cabin.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  By staying at our cabin, you'll slow down and relax because that's all there is to do. Enjoy the lake by swimming or bring your kayaks or boat, go 'crawdading' off the rocks, enjoy a great book in a lounge chair on the deck, BBQ a great meal with family or friends, and maybe enjoy a great bottle of wine in an amazing location. We also have a rental boat available at the property to make your stay even more convenient and amazing.
