About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Welcome to the Mackinaw Cabin, one of our two historic Globin cabins! Well appointed with antiques, art, and creature comforts, it has a warm mountain feel with an eye toward appreciation of the area’s history. It easily sleeps two couples or a family in two private sleeping areas, each with their own full bathroom and television. It is equipped with all the amenities you expect from a modern vacation rental and more, including a fully equipped kitchen, entertainment center (including stereo with iPod dock), antique hutch /bar, flatscreen TV, and a spacious deck with gas barbecue, hot tub, and comfy patio furniture overlooking the large, nicely landscaped and fully fenced yard.

The cabin is furnished with a pillow top queen bed and an extra thick fold-down futon couch (double), both supplied with quality linens. Off-street parking for two vehicles and access to the back yard to store a small boat or vehicle behind a locked gate.

The cabin is perfectly located to provide you with ready access to all things Tahoe. From our quiet neighborhood walk just two short blocks to the lake and boat-launch ramp, or enjoy a beautiful walk through the historic neighborhood and nearby meadow reserve. Great bagels, coffee, and a variety of restaurants are also just a few blocks away, as are the Recreation Center (Olympic-sized swimming pool, ice skating rink), Lake Tahoe historical museum, the Timber Cove Marina (boat rentals). We are located only 2 miles from the casinos and all the entertainment they have to offer, as well as being on the bike route through South Lake Tahoe. You will have easy access to the areas hiking in the summer, and in the winter it is an ideal location for skiers, just 2 miles from Heavenly Valley Ski Area and centrally located between Kirkwood, Sierra and Squaw Valley ski resorts.

Please give us a call - this is the quality cabin get-away you are looking for. Thinking of traveling with friends or family? Two doors down you’ll find our sister cottage, another 1 bedroom Globin brick beauty. Take a look at listing #29571 and share the perfection with loved ones! No smoking, please. Pets OK for extra nightly charge.

Chris knopp purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Chris knopp chose South Lake Tahoe

We love Tahoe - this cabin helps us continue to enjoy this beautiful landscape and share it with others.

What makes this cabin unique

The historic nature of the cabin is very unique. The Al Tahoe area is great for accessing all the wonderful things that Tahoe has to offer. Just a few block walk from the house is the beautiful Trout Creek marsh and wonderful beaches where the marsh meets the lake. A great coffee and bagel shop is just a few blocks in the other direction, and great restaurants abound.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I had a lovely mini-vacation at your property over the Thanksgiving weekend with my small dog. The large fenced-in yard was perfect to play with her in and the cabin was perfectly cozy and fully equipped. Thank you for a lovely home away from home!
