A few renter comments:
Loved the log cabin and log home - first time we have stayed on the West Shore on recommendation from friends in San Francisco – it felt like Tahoe 20 years ago. We preferred it to the South Lake Tahoe & North Lake Tahoe areas which have grown “too” fast. Sledding to the creek was the best! Jerry
Thanks for renting the cabin. It was great to be walking distance to the lake – Chambers Landing has one of our favorite beaches. Kids camped on the creek on the property – having the creek and the lake at our doorstep was the best of Tahoe. Kress Family
Beautiful Log Home - so quiet yet convenient to Homewood Ski resort and Tahoma market. Thanks, we'll come again. Bev
The morning and evening walks in the neighborhood and to the lake were wonderful – we plan to come again. Zalinski Family

Property has convenient car access, is heavily wooded, quiet, and close to all conveniences.
Both cabin and log home have open floor plans with log beams and vaulted ceilings, Monterey Pine wood paneling, Italian tile and hardwood floors and decorated in “Tahoe Style” to compliment the beautiful interior.

Lots of space and character; good value for the money
Lots of space and character; good value for the money
The 3 bedroom/2 bath log home has a lot of character, is very spacious, nicely furnished and, in our opinion, one of the nicest Tahoe homes in this price class. Among the many features is a separate entry area/mud room, which was especially practical in the winter when you come in with snowy boots. The owner is very responsive via phone or email. When we had a minor issue it was addressed right away (a part of the coffee maker was missing, and he promptly guided us to a replacement machine on the property). Since we spent our days skiing and it got dark early, we didn't get to benefit from the nice surroundings, but it looked like you could have a lot of fun sledding right outside the door and walking down to and along the creek. It's not quite clear from the pictures, but the log home is the larger home that sits away from the street, behind the house with the garages that houses the smaller "cabin" upstairs. We'd happily return to this house.

About the owner: Dave is a management consultant & building contractor and lives in the San Francisco Bay Area. We built our log home and cabin as a family retreat. We use the cabin and house often, and enjoy visiting Sugar Pine Point State Park, riding bikes on the West Shore Bike Path, and skiing @ Homewood Ski Resort just up the road. Lots of room for snow play with a private sled hill down to McKinney Creek.
