About the Property
Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 7)
THE MAIN HOUSE:
Located just outside of Tahoe City, and one block from Lake Tahoe, this Old Tahoe cabin has everything you need to escape city life without roughing it. The Main House features the kitchen, living/dining area, laundry, one large bedroom and two baths. It is furnished with Old Hickory, custom and vintage furnishings. The bedroom includes a sitting area with an antique-style gas fireplace. Additionally, two separate guest cabins (described below) each feature an additional bedroom and bathroom. A great location for the in-laws (don’t tell them we said this) or another couple of kids! (PROPERTY HAS A TOTAL OF THREE BEDROOMS for a total accommodation of SEVEN GUESTS).
Built of local stone and native lodgepole pine, this 1930s home features WIRELESS INTERNET, a new 5-person hot tub, period fixtures, comfortable furnishings, a stone fireplace, log construction, and plenty of charm. The compact kitchen is modern and features a Bosch dishwasher and dual-fuel convection oven/range.
The home sits on a third of an acre and the property connects to the dedicated bike and pedestrian pathway passing through Lake Tahoe, Sunnyside, Homewood, Tahoe City and Truckee. (bring your bikes along)
Off the Main House is a stone patio featuring plantation-grown Teak furniture and a patio heater. This is a great place to BBQ, have dinner, enjoy drinks or just relax under the market umbrella on a sunny afternoon. A few steps away is our hot tub located under a covered patio. There is a third deck with Teak furniture arranged for outdoor living. (deck furnishings for spring, summer & fall)
There are a variety of things to do within walking, biking or skiing distance of our home!
THE GUEST HOUSE:
This is a nice comfortable space for two additional guests. This cabin has one bedroom with a queen bed. It has a full bathroom and closet. It is perfect for a second couple or a grandfather that snores. It is finished in knotty pine and it has an Old Hickory table and chairs for writing or reading, a television with DVD & cable, and a telephone.
THE BOAT HOUSE:
The Boat House is an additional small one bedroom, one bath guest quarters adjacent to the hot tub. It has a set of bunk beds for older kids or whomever wants their own space. The Boat House is located just a few feet from the main house.
A note on the history and architecture of our home:
Years ago locals referred to our home as Casa Chica, or in Spanish vernacular, 'little home' Casa Chica has many of the modern amenities you have come to expect without compromising the classic charm of an Old Tahoe style cabin. The Main House retains most of the original divided-light casement windows and Dutch doors. The log construction, knotty pine walls and vintage Mission and Old Hickory furnishings will remind you of a by-gone era. There are several original Old Tahoe cabins on our street, and the setting is peaceful with beautiful towering trees.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: This a great place to own. There are many reasons to stay here, but the proximity to the Lake is always on the top of the list. The large backyard and the beautiful towering trees make this a great place to spend time during any season. We take pride in keeping the house furnished and decorated with comfortable furnishings. As a result, we have many guests that have returned summer after summer or ski trip after ski trip.
Why the Owner Chose Timberland (Tahoe City, California, United States of America):
The West Shore is wonderful location, close to recreation, but not overly developed. You can walk to Hurricane Bay Beach in 4 or 5 minutes or take a cup of morning coffee on a walk through the nature preserve just two blocks from the house.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
You will like that we have kept the original charm of this Old Tahoe cabin.
