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 National Nordic 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 these various organizations. I have also performed as a Scandinavian folk dancer and with a Nordic Women's Choir.
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 lived there for three years between living in San Francisco and 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, Swedish and Swiss heritage at our cabin! Every year we strive to make some improvements in addition to annual maintenance. 2016: we replaced a wooden step onto the front deck with a concrete one and added a ramp by the driveway. We replaced lighting and cabinets in both bathrooms. 2017: we added a remotely programmable thermostat so that winter guests will enter a warm home. 2018: We added a socket below the picture window in the living room with 2 USB ports for charging your phone. We also added a flat-screen Smart TV along with the DVD player and VCR that were there. One of our summer guests added two new beach chairs. 2019: We upgraded safety features by adding 2 outdoor security cameras, 2 upgraded fire extinguishers, 2 new dual smoke/CO2 alarms, 2 additional smoke alarms, and a battery backup for the router so the house phone will work even if the power is out. We also added a battery-operated lantern, 2 rechargeable flashlights and a night light in each bedroom. We replaced all 3 outdoor lamps by the front, side and deck doors with motion-sensing ones. We installed a keyless lock to the side and added a new chair and foot stool in the living room.
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), bringing 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, winter's Snowfest, 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 great snow skiing where we have fabulous lake views from Homewood Mountain Resort. The beauty of the lake and the mountains always restores my spirit! 2020: Brought us COVID-19 and the county closed all VHRs down for several months. We reopened the first of July after spending 10 days of intense cleaning and washing all quilts, blankets, duvets, linens, and towels, and then all the dishes, silverware, pots and pans, etc. in the kitchen. Obviously, that amount of cleaning is not possible between guest stays, so we stowed away extras for our housekeeping service. We have not sanitized every book, tape, CD and DVD in the cabin. If you feel uncomfortable, feel free to wipe them off with sanitizer wipes or run items through the washer and dryer or dishwasher. We upgraded the TV in the back bedroom to a flat screen TV.
