                        Best location for sunrise and sunset and since it was a full moon during our stay the moon over the lake was pretty amazing too. The pictures are accurate - this is not Tahoe luxury in accommodations. Instead, it is an authentic Tahoe log cabin experience with amazing views and everything you need for a cozy and very comfortable stay (comfortable bed in main cabin, did not need to use the bunkhouse during our stay). This place is charming and unique - love the stone fireplace! The walk to and from the cabin is steep so hauling out kayaks was counted as one of the hikes I wanted to take. Not pictured is a great new pier built by the owners - (great for yoga or getting even closer to that beautiful Rubicon Bay). Close to markets and Emerald Bay/Vikingsholm. Short drive to bike trail/Sunnyside. We spent the majority of our time kayaking in Rubicon and Meeks Bays and sitting on the deck(s) absorbing and appreciating how truly beautiful Tahoe is. Not viewable in the pictures, there is a great little sandy area very close to the water to hang out and stare at the granite boulders and Tahoe blue water. Since our visit was late September we had a bit of every type of weather; sun, wind, rain, snow and more sun it was a great stay through it all. Pet friendly - our dog took her chipmunk patrol duty very seriously. The owner is very helpful and wants to be sure you have a great time. Highly recommended for those who want more of an adventure with modern conveniences rather then the condo/hotel or Go-Large over the top lodge vibe. Enjoy!

                        This is very unique opportunity to stay in an “old Tahoe” historic lakeside cabin on Rubicon Bay. I recently enjoyed my third (3rd) summer week this August and also celebrated my engagement proposal to my future wife, Rachelle, with her parents and sister. It is similar to “glamping”. The main cabin provides a kitchen, bedroom / living room area and bathroom. It is surrounded by an amazing wrap around deck that overlooks crystal clear Rubicon Bay. The second / guest cabin is also great; it has an amazing view and has its own bathroom and kitchen. The entire property is geared towards being outside on the deck, in the lake or climbing around the rocks. If you love to swim, waterski, hike, watch the long sunsets, read, write or just lounge and relax - this is your place. When we go we rarely leave or drive anywhere. Rachelle and I will be staying here as long as it’s available. Disclaimer: Wildlife is present; you must be cautious about leaving food outside at night as there are raccoons and an occasional hungry non-threatening bear around. It’s all part of the awesome experience. The owners are extremely helpful and nice. I highly recommend it, it’s amazing. Close by amenities are: 1. Emerald Bay 2. Chambers Landing (great punch cocktail) 3. Sunnyside 4. Eagle Falls 5. Obexers Marina / Grocery

                        We loved the rustic cabin and the spectacular views of the lake. This is truly one of the most scenic locations on the lake. In addition it is close to great hiking as well as kayaking in Rubicon Bay.

                        We recently spent our anniversary at this magical rustic summer cabin from the 1930's. The inside is untouched from the days of yore which add to its charm. The setting is the most extraordinary with full views of Tahoe and wedged between Rubicon and Meeks Bay. The sunset rises directly in front of the house making an awe-inspiring moment to every evening. Everytime we left the property for activities we had to come back soon just to stare at the beauty. This cabin is down a steep hill so it's NOT suitable for ederly or children or even those not in shape but for those that want a glamping rustic experience versus five star accomodations in the most beautiful setting, this is the one for you! But don't book it too often as we want to come back soon!!!!!!!!!!!!! with Reader's Digests back from the 50's and old books to peruse once the unbelievable view

                      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.
