McKinney Estates cabin description

Located footsteps away from the beautiful Rubicon Trail! We are located in Homewood near Chamber's Landing and Tahoma.

Our private, newly remodeled home in West Shore, Lake Tahoe is completely surrounded by State owned undeveloped parcels. You can truly enjoy your privacy and the peacefulness of being in the mountains.

Walk through the door of our 'A' frame cabin into all of the comforts and amenities that you would typically expect to have in your own home. Downstairs features a full kitchen with custom concrete countertops, custom cabinets and stainless appliances; dining room with a sliding door leading to the deck; living room with a flat screen t.v. and fireplace; full bathroom with a walk-in tiled slate shower and custom concrete counter; a master bedroom with a King bed; and a laundry room. Upstairs you will find two rooms: a large room with a queen bed and two twin trundle beds (sleeping for 4 in twins or make 2 kings) and a loft room with a door for privacy and a full size bed. There is also a full, tiled bath upstairs with a tub/shower.

This cabin has been in our family for over 40 years and has seen generations of families. We are kid friendly but sorry, no 'furry' kids:) In the winter relax by the wood burning stove and play games or watch your favorite movie. Just a short drive to Homewood Ski Resort for skiiing or snow-boarding or to Granlibakken for some sledding. If you don't want to venture at all, enjoy sledding or cross country skiing on the Rubicon Trail just one block away. In the summer, our favorite time of the year, walk out the door on our large deck and enjoy the peacefulness and beauty of the area. Grill up some dinner on our gas or charcoal barbeque and play a game of horseshoes or basketball while you wait. You may even see a black bear stroll through the landscape! If the beach is what you are looking for, we have many beaches nearby with our favorite being Meeks Bay. Go for a hike up the Rubicon Trail and look for fish in the creek.

We hope you will enjoy our cabin as much as we do.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1972

              About the owner: We are sister and brother owners with young families of our own. We enjoy this cabin as much as possible and would like to offer the experience to other travellers.

              Why the Owner Chose McKinney Estates:
              Our parents bought this cabin when we were children and it has been a vacation home for almost 40 years. We like the West Shore of Tahoe because it is a quieter part of the lake. It is still close to Tahoe City and about a 1/2 hour drive to North or South shores. There is so much to do in the area in all the seasons.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              Enjoying the extensive Rubicon trails by foot, bike or off road vehicles. Relaxing in the quiet neighborhood.
