The Cozy Nostra Lodge is a charming 'old Tahoe' large family cabin located just 4 blocks from Lake Tahoe's beautiful south shore in the historic Al Tahoe neighborhood. The Lodge is located within comfortable walking distance of El Dorado Beach where there is a boat ramp and picnic area and Regan Beach where there is a playground. The South Lake Tahoe Recreation Center featuring an Olympic sized swimming pool, ice skating rink, and gym is 1/4 mile walk away as are the Lake Tahoe Museum, Visitor's Center, and campground. Stores, restaurants, a latte shop, bagel shop, video store, and equipment/bike rentals are within blocks. Heavenly Valley Ski resort and the gaming casinos are a 5 minute drive.

 

Owner info

About the owner: Our family takes great pride in and loves this house where we have been gathering for special occasions for generations. Most of our guests grow to feel the same way and come back year-after-year. Many of them have started to refer to the Cozy Nostra Lodge as 'our house.'

Why the Owner Chose Al Tahoe:
Our family has enjoyed Tahoe for generations. Each season of the year is different and has unique aspects and allure. Just when you start to think that you like it in winter the best you have a knock-out summer experience that starts the debate all over again. When you walk into the Cozy Nostra Lodge you feel immediately like you've come back home.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Our house is spacious and spread out which is good for large family groups to be able to have their 'own space' yet feel that they are a part of the group. The openness of the floor plan let's you be able to see what is going on yet not be on top of one another. Gathering around the large dining room table for special meals often turns into hours of conversation, joke telling, friendly teasing and wine drinking, of course.
