It also has access to the private beach park in the summer, and close to the ski resorts. Cozy decor and furnishings reflect unique Tahoe mountain setting. The home has everything that you need but is priced 20-30% lower than comparable homes.

                                                                  Melissa W.

                                                                  This is the perfect place to stay to get away for a bit. If you want to relax by a fire or enjoy all the fun outdoor activities, this is your place. Short drive to Alpine and Squaw Valley, hiking trails near by, great outdoor spa, and the most comfy couches!

                                                                  So relaxing. Retro round center fireplace was awesome.

                                                                  Joseph L.

                                                                  We really found it relaxing with two seating plush couch areas around the circular fireplace. Great hot tub n deck. My dog Bonnie liked the cozy upstairs. She snuggled right in her bed in the corner near the tv.

                                                                  Great time with the fam.

Sleds for kids to use,plenty of firewood, all nececarry kitchen supplies. The owners were very nice and helpful and thought of everything so that there were no unnecessary trips to the store for needed stuff. Will be back next year with the fam.

                                                                  Wonderful white Christmas

                                                                  Dane V.

                                                                  couldn't think of al better place to spend our first white Christmas. Clean, warm and plenty of snow outside. Best Christmas ever! Would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet, cozy place with plenty to see and do :)

                                                                  Loved it!

If I had to complain about something it would be the lighting downstairs where the bedrooms are. The lighting was dim throughout. However first thing in the morning if all the shades are open upstairs the natural lighting was amazing! Oh and the fireplace was the best!!!!

                                                                  Great location and cabin
