About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10), short walk to great beaches.

Our lovely home, Goldilocks Cabin, was built in 2007 and has been gently rented since 2008. With 4 bedrooms and two and 1/2 baths, it is spacious, well-appointed and beautifully decorated throughout in upscale 'Tahoe' style. The huge kitchen has modern stainless appliances and an island perfect for entertaining large groups. The living room features a flat screen HD LCD TV with cable and free Showtime, HBO and Cinemax, DVD and VCR with shelves full of movies, a Sony stereo that is iPod compatible, and comfy furniture to sink into after a day on the lake or slopes. There is a beautiful glass-enclosed fireplace viewable from the kitchen, dining and living rooms. Nine foot ceilings and numerous windows complete the luxurious feel of our home.

The master suite includes fabulous furnishings, an HDTV & DVD player, walk-in closet, and spacious private master bath with a romantic two person soaking tub and shower as well as dual vanity. One of the two cozy queen bedrooms also has an HDTV. The fourth bedroom is a perfect room for children or adults and features sturdy log-style twin bunks and an extremely comfortable double bed.

The front porch is a wonderful place to sit in a rocker and enjoy the neighborhood and has a "peek" view of the face of Heavenly. The private backyard is perfect for a summer barbecue or year-round hot tub fun. The Al Tahoe area is user-friendly every season of the year.

This 'cabin' is 4 very short blocks from the lake (less than a 2 minute walk) and just 2.5 miles from the casinos and the world-class Heavenly Ski Resort. Another ski resort, Sierra-at-Tahoe, is a quick 20 minute drive. Goldilocks Cabin is located between two of South Lake Tahoe's most popular beaches: Regan Beach and the newly renovated Lakeview Commons at El Dorado Beach.

About Nancy Williams

We purchased this wonderful home because of it's incredible location and superior amenities. After years of renting other vacation homes in the neighborhood, we knew we had found the perfect home to enjoy with our families and friends. Al Tahoe, a historically prominent neighborhood in South Lake Tahoe, offers year round activities with beautiful mountain and lake views. In addition to the fantastic skiing and gorgeous walks by the lake, we especially enjoy the public tennis courts and golf course located just a quick 2 minutes away.

Nancy Williams purchased this house in 2007

Why Nancy Williams chose South Lake Tahoe

The Al Tahoe area is a friendly neighborhood next to the lake, a new boat ramp, great beaches, near world class skiing, restaurants and the exciting South Lake Tahoe casino action, entertainment and nightlife.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Here are some actual comments written in our guestbook by recent renters: "Our group of 40 gathered in various homes in SLT for a family reunion--Goldilocks Cabin was by far the most comfortable and beautiful of all!" "We enjoyed your cabin immensely. A perfect location, close to a very nice beach and a short drive to the casinos. Your cabin is so comfortable and well kept that it was a shame we had to leave." "Convenient, well equipped and clean!" "Enjoyed the hot tub and comfortable beds." "Like a home away from home...need I say more?!" And from a guest visiting for the 3rd time: "We had an awesome time at Goldilocks Cabin as always! Plenty of space to spread out and be comfortable. Enjoyed the hot tub and all the amenities of home!"

Lovely, comfortable cabin for weekend in Tahoe with friends/family

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in Nancy's cabin in South Lake Tahoe as a group of friends. We liked being able to walk right down to the lake and relax in the hot tub after a day on the slopes!

Our favorite place to stay in South Shore

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time staying at Goldilocks and it was fantastic as usual. Very roomy and cozy, the cabin has all the accommodations we need. Centrally located, the cabin is close to the beach, ice rink and a short drive to Safeway or the casinos. This year we were lucky to have tons of snow, so the backyard was a perfect place for the little ones to play and explore. Owners are highly communicative and responsive. Highly recommend staying here.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed Goldilocks cabin. The decor was very cute and went well with the theme. There was a cozy, homey feeling. The beds were comfortable! I will definitely be booking again with Nancy! She was sweet, promt and answered all my questions. She even allowed us to check out a little later due to the weather conditions.

Beautiful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed in South Lake Tahoe with another family and shared this beautiful cabin. We absolutely loved it. The cabin is beautiful on the inside and outside. We've had a few bad experiences and we're always a bit weary when cabin hunting. You need not worry about this one. Interior decorations are wonderful. Appliances and furniture are clean and very nice. Beds, linens and everything about this cabin is clean and high quality. The owners were very helpful and very pleasant to work with. Highly recommend this choice!!!
