About Linda Taylor
We are a family of four who live near the beach in Southern California, who enjoy all types of outdoor activities. In the Winter months we head to Tahoe as often as we can to enjoy skiing, shoe-shoeing, sledding (and getting cozy with a book or a good movie). In the summer months Lake Tahoe offers hiking, waterskiing, boating, rafting and biking. We love the West Shore feeling of the old "lazy days of summer", where things can be as slow, or as active as you want them to be. We wanted our cabin to be a place where families and friends gather to enjoy time together and make memories, and if you read our guest book with 17 years of entries...we are happy to say that the place has accomplished that, not only for our own family but many, many others who have visited.
Linda Taylor purchased this Cabin in 1998
Why Linda Taylor chose McKinney Estates
When we travel away from home, we like to go to places that feel different from our permanent home, but are clean, safe, cozy and comfortable too. When we found the Burt Anderson designed, old-Tahoe style cabin, we knew it was the place for us. Located on the West Shore, the area has charm, a relaxed vibe, access to endless outdoor activities with amazing backdrops, beaches, views and hiking trails. In some ways the cabin feels like a step back in time. With pecky cedar construction, stone fireplace, and cabin decor. The house sits on a corner lot with forrest land and creek on the other side and immediately behind, and feels private even though it is located in small quiet neighborhood. The kitchen and bathrooms have been updated for convenience but we tried to maintain the original rustic charm of the cabin. Being able to walk to the beach was a requirement for us, and to find Chamberlands beach with it's charming Dockside Bar and Grill on site was a huge bonus!
What makes this Cabin unique
Walking distance to the Lake, yet far enough from busy Highway 89 so there is no traffic noise. Street level access so there is no steep driveway to navigate in the snowy winter months. The yard is large for the area with room for outdoor play and relaxing.

Genuine Tahoe Family Comfort
My family wanted an authentic cabin in the woods.
The style and comfort of this home was everything we could hope for and more.
This was a first time seeing the snow for some family members and what a blast!!
After snowboarding all day we came home to
cook and play games in this cozy rustic cabin.
The modern comforts made our stay seamless and easy. My kids are asking when we can return. Love this spot of natural beauty and charm.

A Winter Wonderland
Our family of (7) really enjoyed this cabin, the location was great & the cabin was exactly what we had hoped for. The owners really had everything that we could possibly need, making so convenient because we forgot a couple of items at home. The listing is very thorough on what to expect - we are hoping to re visit in the summer and enjoy the lake this time around. (hopefully staying in this cabin) that’s how much we enjoyed it. You won’t be disappointed!
We loved this cozy cabin! The decoration was beautiful and very classy.
Will recommend it, ideal place for 3 couples.
