Our cabin is located in the Chamberlands, one of Lake Tahoe’s premier subdivisions, ½ mile from Highway 89 which borders the lake. Our membership in the Chamberlands Beach & Mountain Club offers our guests some desirable privileges & services. In the summer, membership privileges include access to the private Chambers Landing Beach with life guards, paddle boats for children, a restaurant, bar & pier, and shuttle service to and from the beach. While it is only a three block walk to the beach from the cabin, the free shuttle, which comes by the cabin every ½ hour, allows guests to take all their beach accessories with them. In the winter, privileges include driveway plow service.

We are conveniently located close to many seasonal attractions and activities. In the Summer, Spring, and Fall, popular attractions and activities closest to the cabin, between 2 to 20 miles, are hiking and biking trails, visits to the Ehrman Mansion in Sugar Pine Point State Park & Squaw Valley Village and world-famous & spectacular Emerald Bay. Our friends and family have enjoyed hiking down to the Vikingsholm in Emerald Bay, viewing the beautiful waterfalls, and hiking to Eagle Lake. The trail to Eagle Lake begins just across the highway from Emerald Bay. Also enjoyable and offering spectacular views, is a hike up Eagle Rock located 3 miles north of the cabin. A biking trail, ¼ mile from the cabin, goes north to Tahoe City and south as far as Meeks Bay. Bikes can be rented in Homewood. Boats, Kayaks can also be rented in Homewood and Meeks Bay. Enjoy a chartered boat cruise, (including dinner cruises) on the Lake which can be arranged in Homewood and other nearby villages. A Class One, 5 mile river raft trip, is available starting from Tahoe City. Fishing in the nearby Truckee River is yet another family favorite.

In the winter, skiing and snowboarding are available at Homewood Ski Bowl, one mile from the cabin. Other ski resorts, within a half-hour drive are, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows & Northstar. Cross-country skiing can be enjoyed at Sugar Pine Point, (2 miles) and Granlibakken (6 mi). Sledding can be enjoyed one mile south of Tahoe City and a few other areas on the Westshore. We provide sleds, saucers and a toboggan.

In all seasons, other activities, attractions and conveniences include, dining in several lakeside restaurants, shopping and gambling. Several excellent restaurants & interesting places to shop are within 5 to 10 miles from the cabin. A list of recommended restaurants available upon request. For groceries and other supplies, there are two supermarkets in Tahoe City. One mile south of the cabin, on Highway 89, is the Tahoma market, a favorite for Deli services, groceries and movie rentals. Stateline casinos are located approximately 20 miles from the cabin on both the North and South shores of the Lake.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: In 1989, my husband, Ed, and I, realized a dream to build a cabin in Lake Tahoe. Ed taught science and Math at a Middle school for 38 years and I worked as an RN at a local hospital for 40 years. We have lived in San Jose for nearly 45 years & have 3 grown children and 4 grandchildren. We are a very close family and enjoy spending time together. Our family has had many memorable times together at the cabin; skiing, playing games, sharing meals, hiking, biking, swimming, and so much more.

Why the Owner Chose Homewood:
We had always wanted a vacation home; a place to 'get-away' and find serenity amid the natural beauty of our earth. There is no place more beautiful than Lake Tahoe!! So, one day, when the opportunity arose to buy property in the Chamberlands, a premier subdivision on the Westshore, we jumped at the chance to realize our dream. We worked with a local contractor to plan and build our vacation cabin and are grateful to realize our dream.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We love our cabin for the peace, fun, warmth and beauty it provides. In the summer we enjoy walking in the Chamberlands, and to the beach. We love sitting on our deck, barbecuing, playing games and sharing time and love with our family and friends. We enjoy eating breakfast at the Firesign Cafe and dinner at the many lakeside restaurants nearby and in Tahoe City. We like to drive to Virginia City and visit the historic sights. My husband likes to go to Cabelas on Highway 80, a 45 minute drive, and I like to gamble occasionally at the nearby Casinos. We never tire of visiting beautiful places such as Emerald Bay, Eagle Lake & nearby Erhman Mansion. Our family & friends also enjoy everything the Lake has to offer; biking, hiking, boating, fishing, skiing, gambling, shopping and so on.. One of my favorite things to do is to make needlepoint, embroidered and crocheted art work for the cabin which, in my opinion, just adds to its charm. My husband likes to build things that make our life and our guests lives easier and more fun such as: a giant swing and horse shoe pit in the backyard and a covered firewood shed close to the cabin making it more convenient to get wood for the fireplace in the winter. Our children love to ski and snowboard and appreciate the convenience of driving such a short distance to several ski resorts.
