Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Island, South Lake Tahoe, CA, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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!
