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

2BR-1BA log cabin and 3BR-2BA+loft log home in Homewood, on Lake Tahoe’s West Shore, 8 miles south of Tahoe City. Built with 14 inch hand-peeled Engleman Spruce logs by craftsmen from British Columbia. Year-round McKinney Creek runs through our large & private 2 acre lot. 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.

Cabin has one queen bed in bedroom #1, one double bed and twin bunk beds in bedroom #2. Log home has one queen bed in upstairs master bedroom with private deck, loft & private deck has one queen futon, downstairs bedroom #1 has one queen bed, and downstairs bedroom 2 has one double and twin bunk beds. (bring your own bed linens and shower towels - or we can arrange to provide them for an additional fee) – all beds have pillows, blankets and comforters. Vermont-Castings cast iron stoves with glass doors heat the main living areas and all bedrooms have electric baseboard heaters.

Cabin and home are 5-years-new and professionally cleaned after each rental.

Homewood Ski Resort is 1 mile from the cabin. Tahoe City is 12 minutes north with shops, grocery stores and restaurants. The Tahoma Market PDQ, great for last minute shopping, is 1 mile south.

Favorite spots near the cabin include Homewood Ski Resort, Chambers Landing Beach/Pier, Meeks Bay, the West Shore Blvd Bike Path, Sunnyside Restaurant, Obexer’s public boat launch & dock, Sugar Pine Point, DL Bliss and Emerald Bay state parks.

              Year Purchased: 2002

              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.

              Why the Owner Chose Homewood:
              Great location on the quiet West Shore with parking and easy winter access. Walk to the lake, Tahoma Market, Sugar Pine Point, and bike the West Shore Bike Path.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              A real log home, beautifully decorated in a Tahoe Mountain style. Large wrap around deck overlooking McKinney Creek. Large lot for privacy.
