About Roberta Morrow
Hi, I am Roberta and I live north of Seattle. For many years, I served on the Board of Directors of our Tahoe Cedars Property Owners Association. I started and edited the organization's newsletter, the Tahoma Tattler. I lived in San Francisco and worked as a technical writer and editor at Levi Strauss and Co. there. I am now retired, but continue to work as a volunteer or participate with several organizations including Sons of Norway, Daughters of Norway, the Nordic Heritage Museum, and Western Rosemalers' Association as well as my church. I have served in the capacity of president, vice-president, cultural director, social director, foundation director, editor, advisory board member and docent for various organizations.
Roberta Morrow purchased this Cabin in 1979
Why Roberta Morrow chose Tahoma
We purchased the cabin because we loved to ski, and soon discovered that we loved Tahoe in the summer, spring and fall as well as in the winter. The cabin was a great home base for exploring the many interesting areas in the Sierra Nevada. We became very attached to our little neighborhood, and even spent three years there before moving to Idaho. We love the Westshore of Lake Tahoe. We like the sense of community there. Homewood Mountain Resort is our favorite place to ski. We can walk to cross-country tracks in Sugar Pine Point State Park. We love to walk to the Ehrman Mansion there. We also like the stream profile at D.L. Bliss State Park. The Vikingsholm at the end of Emerald Bay and Valhalla are also favorite places. You'll notice a little influence of my Norwegian and Swedish heritage at our cabin! Every year we strive to make some improvements in addition to annual maintenance. In 2016 we replaced a wooden step onto the front deck with a concrete one and also added a ramp. We put in new lighting and cabinets in both bathrooms. In 2017 we added a remotely programmable thermostat so that guests arriving during the winter will enter a warm home.
What makes this Cabin unique
Our cabin is cozy and comfortable. What I love about our cabin is the wonderful smell of the forest, the lovely summer temperatures, the easy walk to the lake or to Sugar Pine Point State Park, the lack of traffic on the West Shore, the short trip to Homewood Mountain Resort, walking to our local market to pick up the Sunday paper and some milk, eating breakfast on the front deck and watching the world go by, walking the dog around the neighborhood and talking to all the neighbors, watching old movies (there are more than 500 of them there), taking friends along or inviting California friends to come up while we are there, the great room concept where I can cook and visit with guests at the same time, the summer festivals, Snowfest in the winter, driving around Emerald Bay, poking around the Vikingsholm and Valhalla, the stream profile and nature walks at DL Bliss State Park, hiking up to the tarns above Emerald Bay, going to the hot springs in Nevada, the quiet fall season when the salmon are running. And the skiing in winter is great! We have fabulous views of the lake from Homewood Mountain Resort. The beauty of the lake and the mountains always restores my soul!

Clean, comfortable and quiet
Two Morrows cabin was very clean, the beds were comfortable and everything was well stocked. The location is great. It is in a quiet
neighborhood near the beautiful Sugar Pine Point State Park. We would definitely rent this cabin again. Thank you Roberta for making everything go so smoothly.
Tahoma is a great place to launch your Tahoe adventure. The Two Morrow's cabin is clean comfortable and a good location.
Thanks! We are always happy to have returning guests.
Cozy cabin with beautiful woodsy surroundings
We have stayed at the Two Morrows cabin for several years and appreciate the quaint and cozy cabin and all of the practical features it has to offer. The weather was beautiful the past few days and we saw a few deer and plenty of chipmunks. To God be the glory! 👆�🦋�
I'm happy to hear you enjoy our cabin. Nice to have you back year after year!
Great Cabin on the West Shore
My husband and I stayed at the Two Morrows Cabin during the last week of July. The cabin was very nice, comfortable and had everything one could need. It is within easy walking distance of the Tahoma store, lake access, pizza parlor, coffee and ice cream shop, as well as the local post office. You can walk to Sugar Pine State Park which is a great place for a picnic.
I would recommend it without hesitation to friends and family who wanted a nice place to stay.
We can't wait to return!
More memorable moments at Two Morrows cabin
We stayed at the Two Morrows cozy cabin for our seventh (or so) summer with two other couples and our dog. There have been a few upgrades since last year, the bathrooms have been repainted, etc. The cabin has all the comforts from home--and then some, tucked away in the beautiful woods of Tehoma!
Nice home in beautiful location, but needs better furniture in the shared space
We would rent this cabin again, and we appreciated how responsive the owner, Roberta, was when the power in the neighborhood went out. In no particular order, here are some specifics:
1. The kitchen is well-stocked (plenty of leftover herbs and spices and teas) and has decent pots and pans. The dishes are light-weight plastic, but that works fine. I brought my own ScanPan for sauteing, so cannot speak to the quality of their frying pans.
2. Yes, the decor can come off as busy. Some other reviewers were put off by that, I can see, and others felt it was homey. We didn't care one way or the other, at least not consciously. The incredible collection of VHS movies (and some DVDs) is part of what contributes to the clutter. The Wifi was not strong enough to stream content, and I'm not sure whether that is because they need a better router or whether they need faster Internet service. (I also don't know what the offerings are in Tahoe.) Better connectivity could eliminate the need to use so much storage for movies.
3. When the power went out for the neighborhood (as happens in Tahoe), the wood stove really pulled through for us. I don't know wood stoves, but our friends did (and Roberta gave us instructions about where to find the wood), and we were able to both heat the cabin and continue cooking brisket for the evening.
4. The living room furniture was sparse and, for slightly older humans who like back support while sitting around talking or watching movies, uncomfortable. There's also a mismatch: more places to sleep than there are places to sit (either in the dining area -- the picnic table -- or the living room). The cabin would be significantly upgraded by replacing the double futon in the living room with a three-person sofa or, if you really want to preserve the living room as a possible sleeping area, queen sofa bed. The wicker chaise takes up a lot of room for one person, so I'd prefer a couple of Ikea Poang chairs in its place.
5. The location is gorgeous, easy walking distance to Sugar Pine Point State Park, where there is snow-shoeing and groomed cross country skiing trails.
6. Because the cabin is on the far side of major ski resorts from Highway 80, you should time your arrival to avoid the end-of-day traffic jams.
7. When renting, keep in mind that it's not a large place. We were five humans and one Schnoodle, and more would have been too many.
Overall, we really enjoyed ourselves. Thanks, Roberta, for making your home available.
Thank you for a very through review of our cabin! I’m happy you enjoyed your stay and I appreciate the suggestions. I like the idea of an IKEA Poang chair!
We do include directions on how to use the wood stove in the information we send out to our renters. There is also a binder at the cabin with lots of information on what to do in various emergency situations. And I’m always just a phone call away!
Internet service, Wi-Fi, TV signals and cell service are all somewhat flaky in the Tahoe Basin and seem to be particularly poor on the West Shore. So we don’t bother to have a newer TV there, and have many movies and games available instead!
In the seasons other than winter, when the picnic tables are set up on the front and back decks, the situation with the mismatch of sleeping and eating space is reversed.
Even though we are licensed for ten guests, the cabin is only 1100 square feet, and ten only works if several are children.
