Cozy North Lake Tahoe Cabin

Bedrooms 1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Our house is located on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe about 5 blocks from the beach, shopping & restaurants. We are close to all of Tahoe's best ski resorts, just minutes to the chairlifts of Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Northstar at Tahoe and Mt. Rose. If you're more for music and gaming, we are just one mile away from the north shore casinos.

Our home is very cozy, with a personal feel. The living room has a high ceiling & the bedroom is quite large which makes this house quite roomy even though it looks small on the outside. It's a very well designed home with lots of light and space. The driveway can park two cars, if we don't leave one of our cars in the drive, and our road is flat, easy access during the winter months.

It's a wonderful place to rest and read or a great location for a quick-get-up-and-go-place in Tahoe.

About Donna

My husband and I have been Tahoe locals for over 20 years. We have been happy owners of our humble abode on the north shore of Lake Tahoe for 14 years now. We are proud owners of A Day In Your Life Photography for the past 18 years, check out our website We cover your excursions. If you're planning an outdoor excursion with friends and family, we'd love to document it for you. VRBO is allowing us the opportunity to photograph around our beautiful country and help pay the bills while we are away. Thank you for taking the time to view our home and possible stay here. We hope you will love our place as much as we do and want to come back time and time again. Think of it as your Tahoe home too.

Donna purchased this house in 2004

Why Donna chose Kings Beach

Please do not inquire about long term rental. THIS IS OUR MAIN HOME. We will rent to you if we plan a trip. We like to share our home by making it your vacation home. Having the comforts of your own private home is so much better then a hotel. A clean environment, a place to call your own, a sanctuary. Join us and enjoy this beautiful space.

What makes this house unique

It's endless as to all the things you can do on the north shore of Lake Tahoe

Truly feels like a Home

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is a real home. Some vacation rentals feel like just that...unoccupied rentals, barren and lifeless. But John and Donna clearly love their home and are simply sharing it with the rest of us. I have never had such a well-stocked pantry in a house! Same for the bathroom - no worries if you forget your toiletries. Even the dogs were made to feel welcome, with dog bowls, towels, and a ball. The house is well-located, in a quiet neighborhood just a couple of blocks to the National Forest trails, great for off-leash morning dog walks, and a short walk to the dog-friendly lakeside Kings Beach. I loved the yard, which was covered in snow for our first two days, and then later was lovely for soaking in the sun. We really enjoyed our stay in this cozy house and would happily return!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We spent New Years 2017-2018 at this wonderful, warm and cozy cabin. It is a great size with plenty of room and comfort as well as a wonderful yard. The home feels warm and inviting and filled with love for people, dogs and nature. We will definately be going back!! Thank you John and Donna for sharing your home with us and our puppies Jazmin and Aksel. Nakoa adds great beauty to the rainbow bridge!

Cozy, clean home with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

Exactly as described! Comfortable cozy home with well stocked kitchen, close to all north Tahoe sites. Owner makes you feel immediately welcome with a bottle of wine and some chocolates as well as little Post It notes to help you enjoy your stay. A welcome relief to return back to the house after a long day on the water enjoying the lake. Really a nice change of pace from staying in hotels. This place is full of character.

Like time traveling

  • 5 of 5

Greeted by inviting Ironclad dancing flames in modern version of an antique black cast iron stove- we walked through the Christmas themed and beautifully decorated home that is really so like our own. We could have happily traded places with Donna's family having only the stories behind the photos being modified by specific details. We sat among memorabilia of a family not so unlike our own- as though they were only out for a walk- while we made ourselves comfortable , and enjoyed the ambiance they provided- as though we had time traveled into their shoes. It was a wonderful visit!

Great Little Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this quaint cozy home. It was in the perfect location for Kings Beach. We especially enjoyed the outdoor area that had a very peaceful and private feel. Great for a little get away!
