Book early and select your preferred unit or bring another family and rent both. Slip back in time and enjoy the simple life of a 1932 one bedroom log cabin or rent the more modern Old Tahoe 'bunk house' with updated features. Our summer only homes are similar to summer 'camping' on the lake...they have all the simple modern amenities needed to enjoy the Lake the way it was circa 1930…they are one of the few remaining cabins in Tahoe that sit just feet off the lake. Plan to spend the majority of your time outdoors, cooking at the BBQ's and eating picnic style on the large decks. Enjoy amazing views of Incline, Rubicon Bay, South Shore, Mt. Tallac...minutes away from Emerald Bay via boat or car. Walk to wonderful Meeks Bay Beach/Resort for sand and sun. Up to two buoys per unit available to rent for your boat(s). Private pier access shared by both units. The log house can sleep four inside between a queen bed and a pull out queen sleeper couch. The separate bunk-house has large bedroom that sleeps six in three queen beds and has a full kitchen and bath down stairs. There is additional room for sleeping in tents and blow-up beds on the large decks that each unit enjoys. This property is ideal for two families that are looking to share the expense of a lakefront home yet want to enjoy the privacy that comes with each having a stand alone unit to retreat to in the evenings. Pets are welcome...

About the owner: We just love these little 'Old Tahoe' style homes. Going back in time like you do when you stay at these homes 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 and additional bunk house.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: By staying at one of our cabins, you'll slow down and relax because that's all there is to do. Enjoy the lake by swimming, kayaking, boating or paddle boarding, 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 our amazing location. We also have rental boat(s), kayaks and SUP's available at the property to make your stay even more convenient, amazing and memorable.
