Sunny Family Cabin Near Tons of Fun Stuff!

Bedrooms 4
Space 1,800 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 5 nights


About the property

Four bedroom, 3 bathroom house with updated kitchen and filtered lake view.

This meticulously maintained four bedroom, three bath cabin is 1.5 miles south of Tahoe City. Located in a quiet upscale neighborhood, you can see the blue waves of Lake Tahoe through a fringe of pine trees from the living area and sunny back deck.

You will love the open beam ceiling with skylights and the truly remarkable collection of vintage sports equipment that decorate the home.

The house is situated on a lot with large trees, a great sled run in the backyard and access to a trail leading to the Paige Meadows trail complex for summer hiking, winter Nordic skiing, and snowshoeing just three blocks away. It is within twenty minutes of three major downhill ski resorts (Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and Homewood) and two groomed Nordic ski areas. It is also located less than three blocks from an entrance to a very extensive wilderness Nordic ski area. The walk to Tahoe City is along a paved bike path that circles much of Lake Tahoe. We are one mile from Kilner Park which has tennis courts and children’s play equipment. Commons Beach in Tahoe City has an extensive children’s play area. We are a five minute drive from River Rafting and Tahoe City.

There is really good coffee at the bottom of our hill and we are close to grocery stores, restaurants, shops and all the amenities you could wish for.

About Jennifer Keith

Hi, we are Amy, Tim and Jennifer

Our parents, Kathy and Nick, built our Tahoe Cabin in 1977. Skiing is one of the great passions of our father's life and having the cabin has allowed him and our families the opportunity to not only ski, but also enjoy the wonder of all that Lake Tahoe offers. Our parents have now passed along this wonderful house to us, their children and we aspire to appreciate it and maintain it as well as our parents and preserve it for the enjoyment of many families in the future.

Jennifer Keith purchased this house in 1977

Why Jennifer Keith chose Tahoe City

Our parents chose this location because it is close to so many fun things and of course the ski areas. We think you will love the house and especially the location.

What makes this house unique

This house is a sanctuary and a wonderful retreat from the City. There's so much to do around the area and also the possibility of doing so little. Just hanging out and reading a book, with the lake and the mountains in the background is a treat. The kitchen is great for cooking. There are enough beds and bathrooms that everyone can have their own space, even when it's an extended family or group of friends staying there.

Sunny Family Cabin Near Tons of Fun Stuff!
average rating of 4.5925927 based on 27 reviews

Our family enjoyed being together there.

  • 3 of 5

It’s a lovely home, but the upstairs was very warm during the day. The skylights in the dining area and bedroom bring in extra heat which is probably beneficial for winter stays. Also, there are only queen sized beds so if a couple needs more space it’s a bit crowded. Not recommended for people who have difficulty with stairs. Bring toilet paper as there was very little there. Supermarket close by, however. Nice location, large dining table. Couches in living room could use updating. Responsive owner. It’s roomy enough for a nice family gathering. Didn’t love it, didn’t hate it so it’s difficult to rate.

Great cabin that fit our family very well.

  • 5 of 5

We had a super week in this wonderful house. It had a great kitchen with everything we needed for cooking and a nice big table hat could accommodate all of us at the same time. We highly recommend this home and will probably come back again.

Great rental, good location

  • 4 of 5

Had a fun stay in North Tahoe. Rental had everything we needed. The bear deterrent that we had to put up every time we left the house and every night before bed was a little bit of a pain but better safe then sorry. Would stay here again if we are ever back in Tahoe.

Tahoe Winter Ski Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at your Cabin! It was nice and cozy. I like the separate entrance where we put our skis and boards and sleds. Rooms were nice and plenty of space. The only issues we had were the internet was spotty and the downstairs was hot while the upstairs was cool? Great location:) and we all loved the "old" ski memorabilia. The view to the lake was beautiful!!!

We will rent this place again in the future:)
