We're located in Skyland on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe between Sunnyside and Homewood. We're just four doors up from the Lake where we have access to a private beach and pier. You can go cross country skiing or hiking right out the back door since we back up to the Kaspian State Park.

Year Purchased: 1969

Why Homewood, CA, USA:
Grandma Walker bought it for our vacation home. We are constantly updating and improving it. We just added a huge covered deck that connects to 3 sides of the home.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The area along the side of our Lake, 4 houses away, has the longest stretch of public beach to walk along on the entire lake. We love to take walks in the morning and evening, or bike along side the Lake. People come from all over just to be able to take long walks, bike, and picnic. Out back, you can hike or bike along the road near Blackwood Creek. Our neighborhood is very quiet, and peaceful. Our back yard is flat. The neighborhood annual party is always in our back yard. We host about 50 people. 'The Honneymoon House' is it's nick name. There have been several weddings in our back yard.
