About Kevin Dill

We are architects in San Francisco and designed and built this house in 2006. Raising two boys in the city, we have always known the importance of getting away to the wonderful outdoors that the Tahoe area has to offer. We started the boys skiing, fishing and hiking when they were 2 years old and they still enjoy the same activities today as college students. With the boys now away at school, we have the opportunity to open our home so that other families can partake in the same enjoyment that we have had over the years.

Kevin Dill purchased this house in 2006

Why Kevin Dill chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

This property is conveniently and centrally located. About equidistant to Truckee and Lake Tahoe (Tahoe City), and only 1.5 miles to the Squaw Valley entrance, this location is ideal. The house is designed for families or goups and is very spacious. It has been designed in the Tahoe venacular and built majestically into the hillside to capture the view. Top of the line kitchen appliances and large dining room create a great opportunity for family and friends to dine together.

Inspirational trip

  • 5 of 5

Our experience at this cabin exceeded our expectations. The cabin was well appointed and the surroundings were gorgeous.

Beautifully furnished cabin with all the amenities of home. Great place to getaway for the weekend and spend time with family and friends.

The cabin was easily able to accommodate our large group. The kitchen and dining area were spacious and had everything we need to host a large group for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The rooms were large and provided a great night's rest following a day of hiking, swimming, and sight seeing which are a short distance from the cabin.

I highly recommend this cabin to any potential visitors.

Thank You,

Justin Johnson

The perfect summer mountain home for a family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in this wonderful home for 5 days in early August while one of our children attended a conference at Squaw close by. The house is ideally located near Squaw and is also close to Truckee and Tahoe City. As we had 9 family members at one point, I can't say enough good things about this wonderful home for large groups. Everyone had a comfortable bedroom and at night, we loved playing ping pong in the game room.

The house is so very comfortable and beautiful. The kitchen is large and works well for entertaining. We loved having the house as a home base as we hiked and boated all over Tahoe.

Kevin is a wonderful, flexible host. Coincidently, my husband and I are VRBO owners in another community so I am very particular about where we stay. I highly recommend this beautiful house in Tahoe.

The perfect mountain home!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in this home for two years now for a four month stint January - April with a group of friends. For two years my group reaches the end of the four months and reflects on how perfect a home it is. Comfortable, well taken care of, beautiful and in an amazing Tahoe location. It's particularly great for groups due to the many bedrooms, bathrooms and ample room for cars; parking is really hard to come by in some neighborhoods in Tahoe.

The bedrooms are all spacious and comfortable with ample closet space. There's plenty of room to unpack and make yourself feel at home. Each room gets good sunlight as they're all outfitted with big windows. The many bathrooms make it easy for a bigger group to never have to wait too long for a bathroom to open or to use the shower. Although everyone will fight for the beautiful master bathroom shower.

The main floor has a kitchen and dining table that is perfect for those who want to come and cook big meals and commune. The kitchen can fit multiple chefs and sous-chefs preparing meals, and there are plenty of cooking supplies and a huge stovetop. The open floorplan connects the living room area and dining table so that you can have simultaneous cooking and hanging out by the fire.

As a group of skiers one of the best parts is the main floor where there's a garage for tuning skis, a mudroom for stashing skis/poles and other gear, and a big rec room for keeping boots warm. The rec room is not only functional, but fun with a ping pong table and card table.

The deck outside the frontdoor is a beautiful space to hang out and enjoy the surroundings of massive pine trees, as the house is right at the edge of the Tahoe National Forest, instead of looking in neighbors windows, you just have nature around you.

It's ideally situated, only a 5-7 minute drive from the base of Squaw, 10 minute drive from Alpine and 20 minutes to Tahoe City or Truckee. The Truckee River is right across the street if you want to go for walks.

One of the best parts of this house is waking up in the solitude of the mountains, making a cup of coffee and looking out the massive picture window at unobstructed views of the mountain on the other side of the valley.

To top off a perfect house, the owner is wonderful to deal with. He's quick, efficient, friendly and makes the process feel easy.
