About Mary Veliquette

We have owned and managed our vacation rental since December of 2004, and we consider it a labor of love. Both of us have worked most of our lives for the State of California and live in Fair Oaks, CA. Mike is a graphic designer for the Department of Finance, and Mary recently retired after 27 years as a manager for California State Parks. Mary is a breast cancer survivor, but is doing well and enjoying retirement. Mike hopes to retire in a few years when we hope to spend more time hiking and cross country skiing in Tahoe.

Mary Veliquette purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Mary Veliquette chose Tallac Village

We are nature lovers and animal lovers, and appreciate the variety of outdoor activities available in the area. We love to kayak from Kiva beach to Emerald Bay, hike in the Desolation Wilderness and other beautiful hikes in the area, snow shoe and cross country ski in Hope Valley, Camp Richardson and Fallen Leaf Lake areas. We recently began enjoying the newest lake sport, Stand Up Paddling (SUP), and found that our dog Kachina, a German Shepherd/Siberian Husky mix loves it too. This is truly our little piece of paradise!

While we never get to spend as much time as we'd like in Tahoe, we do make it a point to check-in for maintenance as much as possible. Work up here is never a burden as the clean crisp mountain air is so rejuvenating. We love that we can share our little piece of paradise with our guests, many of them returning year after year.

What makes this cabin unique

We love the rustic feeling of the cabin with the cedar siding and the quaint cottage feel of the interior. The vintage Wedgwood stove and oven add to the ambience, yet deliver wonderful cooking experiences all these years later. Mary loves to cook, so we try to make sure the cabin is well stocked both for us and for our guests. We stock the spice cabinet and the condiments regularly, and make sure that you'll have that gadget that you need for your special dish. If we don't have it, we want to know so that we can stock it for the future. We also invested in high quality mattresses in our two main bedrooms because we all need to wakeup to a great night's sleep.

Last, but one of the most important for us, is the ability to share our cabin with other pet loving people. We have a huge fenced back yard, a doggie door, we stock treats for your dogs, and go out of our way to provide everything you need for your canine family members, while still keeping the cabin fresh and clean so that people who don't have pets still love to stay here. We hope you will come and enjoy the cabin as much as we do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We had a fabulous time at your cabin. Everything was as comfortable, convenient and enjoyable as we had hoped. The woodburning stove and portable heaters kept us cozy as the snow came down. The dining room and kitchen were welcoming and large, providing us with some memorable meals and late night cocoa sessions. The reading materials were entertaining and useful. We perused much of the visitor's notebook on the coffee table and found some great trivia and ideas for exploration. Your recommendation to use the free shuttle to Sierra at Tahoe was greatly appreciated and turned out great. Our greyhound and chihuahua acclamated quickly to the snow and appreciated the large backyard. The beds were tremendously comfortable as were the linens and comforters. The location of your place made for some nice daytrips to several points on the lake, and overall we had a very relaxing getaway. I can't think of anything that could be improved, and I appreciated your help and courtesy. Thanks very much and we'll think of you in the future for our mountain adventures."

Great weekend stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend away at this cabin. The yard was great for our dog to run around and play in the snow in a fenced in area. My son loved the backyard as well. Very cute and comfortable cabin with a nice selection of dvds, games and books to keep everyone entertained. Great location for skiing and sledding. We hope to stay here again this summer!

Great Dog Friendly Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We went to Lake Tahoe for my husband's birthday & we had a terrific time. The cabin had everything we needed and the instructions and labels were super helpful.

We have two labs and they loved having the doggie door and large fenced-in back yard.

The cabin is in a nice, quiet neighborhood and close to everything you would want to do in South Lake Tahoe.

Cute house and nice back yard

  • 5 of 5

This is a cute house with everything we needed for our stay. We brought our two dogs and it was a perfect choice. The highlight might have been the really nice fenced backyard with some great outdoor seating where we could enjoy the weather in the evenings and in between outingS. Owner was a pleasure to work with.

Quaint Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this cute house. The backyard was lovely even though we didn't get any time to enjoy it. We did find it interesting how high the bed was but we made it work. Also the one small bathroom was a little difficult even for the two of us. Overall we enjoyed the stay and felt centrally located to everything we wanted to see. Mary was very responsive and a pleasure to work with!

Wondeful cabin for family & dog

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for our family of 4 + our dog. The cabin's size and layout enabled all of us to have our own space as well as a ample room for family games. We all especially enjoyed the lovely backyard where you can have morning coffee under a huge and wonderful pine tree or sit and read any time of day.

The cabin is close to our favorites South Lake beaches; Kiva (dog beach) and Pope and only a short trip to Zephyr Cover over the line in Nevada.

Mary the owner was very responsive, and I would definitely recommend this cabin to family and friends.
