Amazing weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is the PERFECT getaway for two people who want to be away from the hustle-and-bustle of Tahoe City, but want to be near all the great things on the West Side. You can stroll to Sunnyside, Fire Sign Cafe, and the West Shore Market. The neighborhoods are great to walk the dog through, and meet lots of great Tahoe locals, as well as quick access to beaches (dog friendly and people only). The owners of this property are fantastic people you want to share a bottle of wine with.

The accommodations are classic mountain vibe, with outstanding woodworking craftsmanship throughout. It is very well maintained, and as comfy/cozy as can be. We will absolutely stay here again, and if you stay here, you will not regret it!

Perfect location for a couples getaway

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from a great 4 day weekend at this little hidden gem. Set just off the main house, the one bedroom had everything you need. The decor is charming and perfectly set for a Tahoe Cabin feel. The location is really what it is all about. From a quick walk to the market, Fire Sign for breakfast, Spoon and Sunnyside for dinner and drinks - everything was walk-able. Access the the lakeside beach is an added bonus and bike trails made it easy to get to Tahoe City or Chambers without the car.

The fridge is still noisy - bring ear plugs. The white noise machine is helpful, but the rattle when it turns off can be startling. A king sized bed would have been nice, but the queen was good. We definitely will keep this spot on our return to list!

Perfect Tahoe Getaway for Two!

  • 5 of 5

We spent our anniversary at the Buckhorn Cabin. It is everything you need for the perfect Tahoe weekend. Walking distance to all of the following - the HOA beach with grills (pro tip, reserve a grill when you get there for an amazing night), Sunnyside restaurant, SUP/Kayak/Bike rental at West Shore Sports, West Shore Market (eat lunch here you won't regret it), High Sierra Waterski School (rental boats options as well).

About the place - bigger space than expected, great kitchen with Tahoe cabin touches. bed is comfortable, and water pressure is amazing. Two sinks which is a luxury in my family! A great alternative to a hotel room, as you have your own kitchen - so if you don't want the breakfast at Fire Sign Café for the second day in a row, pop over to West Shore market, get some eggs and English muffins and make yourself something that isn't going to weigh you down for the full day (Fire Sign = good but big brunch!)

Neighborhood is amazing, and Carolyn is a very welcoming/responsive host! Very friendly, and the guide book she has waiting you has all the details you will need for a perfect Tahoe Weekend. Having done winters and summers in Tahoe, this is also a great location for skiing Squaw / Alpine - likely you will be able to drive to either within 20 minutes depending on the snow conditions - but it is close enough to lake level that you shouldn't have any issues if you have 4x4/AWD or chains.

Thank you!!!
