                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1992

                  About the owner: My name is Laurie. I am an author, artist, muscian and mom. The log cabin is my get-away where I write my books and movies. Its my refuge, my home away from home and my heart. As a child, I saved a scrapbook of pictures of my dream home... and the first moment I saw our cabin, I knew this was IT! The smell of pines and being a minute stroll to the beach is my favorite part of being in Tahoe. My desire is to share a yesteryear, nostalgic, homestead restored with all the fascinations of modern comfort without compromising its ambiance has come true. The hand-made, authentic, cozy log cabin duplex, boasts of spaciousness, yet intimate for two which meets my needs for alone time to create and family time to build memories. I have been coming to this log cabin for over 20 years and it still holds me captive with it's beauty. Dreamt and believed all my life that someday I would live in a log cabin up in the mountains on a lake. Dream came realized more than vividly true, I feel BLISSFUL! :)))

                  Why the Owner Chose Al Tahoe:
                  It is everything I dreamt of. An authentic, home-made mountain cabin in the pines... a few steps from the sandy beach, yet near enough to the city and all its activities, that I can be away from the noise and hustle and bustle, but skiing, shopping, gambling within 5 minutes. Hand-made of the most beautiful trees from Canada. Original owner owned the original Tahoe wood mill, and hand made all the panneling, roof, doors and details. It took 5 years to build, while a whole subdivision in the neighborhood was built. The quality and uniqueness of everything about this cabin is beyond my wildest imagination. I feel swept up in a fairytale everytime I stay, and am sad to leave... and can't wait to get back!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  seriously? EVERYTHING!!!! The full cabin experience. The rock floors, shag carpets, granite counters, rock hewn sinks, lodge pole banisters, huge log beams and vaulted ceilings make the cabin ageless, yet pampering.
