Enjoy this beautiful lakefront setting in a charming log cabin with your own private, sand beach and large deck overlooking Lake Tahoe.

This family-friendly home sleeps 14 and is fully equipped for your vacation. The dining table has removable leaves that expand to easily accommodate 12 and there is room for four additional people at the kitchen counter and 6 more at the patio table on the deck.

There are three king size beds, five twins and a twin/twin bunk bed. Four of the six bedrooms have unobstructed lake views. Each of the three floors of the cabin have a bathroom.

Tennis courts are down the block, and a heated pool and more tennis courts are a short way up the hill at the homeowner center, which also has ping pong, play area, group BBQ and picnic area, horseshoes and volleyball. The homeowners' pier is at the end of the block along with the homeowner beach, designated swimming areas, sand volleyball court, barbecue area, and picnic tables. Set up a tennis lesson with the pro or swim camp for your kids through the homeowners' rec. center.

Bring your own boat or rent locally. We have a buoy in front of our beach for mooring your boat. Bring your kayaks, sailboats, windsurfers and paddleboards right up onto the sandy beach. Local companies will deliver kayaks to your door or beach.

All Tahoe activities are close by including boating, skiing, hiking, cross country, mountain biking, golf, fishing and anything else you can imagine! Or you can simply relax on the deck or the private beach and marvel at the views.

Love snow sports? Twenty minutes to world class skiing -- Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Homewood Mountain or Northstar. Groomed and ungroomed cross country skiing is just up the hill. Make your own sled path or head out for tubing at the local ski resorts.

Foodies will love the restaurant options in Tahoe City, West Shore, Squaw Valley and Truckee. Nightlife with music performances and gambling is just 30 minutes away at Stateline Nevada.

About The Owner

Our cabin is second generation owned. Three generations of family members feel that Lake Tahoe and our cabin is their second home.

The Owner purchased this house in 1961

What makes this house unique

Our families ski, mountain bike, hike, boat, sail, kayak, windsurf, play tennis, swim in the pool and just hang out at our private beach. There is always something to do, and if you don't feel like exercise, a book, nap or glass of wine on the deck are the ticket. We never run out of things to do!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you so much. We enjoyed the cabin tremendously and the views were breathtaking.

The property is really in a great location and the beach is great but if it is hot it is hot in home

  • 3 of 5

Heat wave in Tahoe the week and the house was really hot. Even with all the windows and doors open. In addition the house is in the market and people "stopped by" to see it twice which was a bit stressful and invasive. I don't think the property owner approved them coming but if house is for sale you might want to consider that when you rent it. Location is great. Could supply better grill (we never used it) cooking utensils and more beach towels.

Beds are great. Deck the best part of house. Can sit for hours. We kind of did because inside was a sauna until 1am but weather was unseasaonably warm.

Owner's Response: Thank you the feedback. As a lakefront cabin in the Sierras we have never needed air conditioning, but I understand that the locals were complaining about the hottest summer ever. We have both a 40" stainless steel propane grill (propane supplied) and a Weber charcoal grill to meet any grilling preferences. I do have to apologize for the intrusion of real estate brokers. They were under strict instructions to not contact the renters. I am really disappointed that they ignored instructions. I have already contacted the broker to express my displeasure. I will discount your rental for the invasion of your privacy. Please contact me directly so that I know which rental you are. Again, I am very sorry for the intrusion. I wish you had contacted me or our property manager at the numbers provided so that I could have addressed your concerns in real time.

Fantastic stay - great location and especially great value

  • 5 of 5

-Such an amazing weekend with a group of friends (youngish couples). This place had enough bedrooms for everyone, a ridiculously beautiful view of the lake, a grill for us to make steaks on. Basically, it was awesome. We'd go back for sure!

Remarkable family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Big Stuff:

Charming log cabin right on the lake. Breathtaking views of the lake from the living/dining room, 4 bed rooms. Cozy. Set up so that several families can be comfortable. We spent a stormy Christmas week there with 6-13 people (ages 10-86) as folks came and went during the week. Very comfortable for cooking, eating and hanging out. When we called or emailed about minor issues the property manager showed up with in 10 minutes to address the issues. The washer dryer is placed near the living room so that it is really easy to do laundry in the evening, don't have to bring so much stuff. Plenty of hot water for everyone to shower and to do the laundry and dishes. Beds and bedding very comfortable. The owner was responsive and generous and lovely to deal with.

The small stuff:

When we arrived the cabin was warm. The kitchen was stocked with somewhat dated pots and pans but there was everything we needed for lots of cooking big meals and it was all clean. There was plenty of soap, tp, paper towels, wood, other necessities for the whole week. TV and internet worked nicely. Lovely dishes but there weren't enough cups for everyone, we bought some disposable hot cups so everyone could have a hot drink. The downstairs rooms were a bit chilly, the heaters didn't seem to work very well down there but it wasn't too bad and the property manager brought a portable heater over. There is a rather steep staircase from the street to the house, not a good place for someone with mobility issues. There is no mud room or good place to keep skis, sleds or boards except outside or to dry them off and bring them in. The Dollar Pt. roads were plowed nicely (however we got stuck in 4x4 trying to get onto the highway from Dollar Pt.... just bad luck)

We felt lucky to have such a great place for our vacation. Grab it if you can!

Fantastic family house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this Old Tahoe log cabin for a week this summer and had everything you could want right outside the door. The private, sandy beach and huge deck are fantastic. We swam and kayaked off the beach and played tennis just down the street and also up by the beautiful homeowner's pool. Our friends stopped by with their motor boat and met us at the homeowner's pier to go wake boarding. It was so convenient! The house has a buoy renters can use (maybe next year we'll bring the boat!). The house has everything we needed-- the dining table that seats 13 -- the high efficiency washing machine for all the beach towels--we put most of the kids downstairs so they had their own space. Tahoe city is about a 5 minute drive with nice restaurants and plenty of shopping. We rented bikes and rode on the many miles of bike paths. Rafting down the Truckee from Tahoe City to River Ranch was a blast! Just bring plenty of sun screen. We want to try this place in the winter too since it is close to Squaw, Northstar, Alpine and Homewood.

It was so great to sit in front of the fireplace in the evening and play games with the family. And check out the stars at night! We had a wonderful time and plan to come back again! Thanks for sharing your special spot with us!!
