TWO PROPERTIES BETWEEN US AND THE LAKE. Close to Northstar, Squaw Valley, and Alpine Meadows ski Resorts. SUPER-EASY ACCESS ANY SEASON, WITH RARE, FLAT, SINGLE-LEVEL DRIVEWAY AND ENTRY. Adjacent to Dollar Point community.
Enjoy this authentic Tahoe cabin nestled in the woods and upgraded just enough to accommodate modern owners and renters, without ruining the vintage cabin charm. Located in the historic section of Lake Forest /Tahoe Island. Very spacious and private. BBQ on Deck. High Speed Internet with Wireless included at no extra charge.
Beach Season: We now also have beach chairs, umbrella, kiddie awning chairs, rolling cooler, floats, noodles, towels, and a rolling cart to bring it all down to the beach. New furnishings and new stainless grill on the deck.
Ski Season: Very close to skiing, 5 minutes to Tahoe City cross country, 10 minutes to Alpine Meadows, and less than 20 minutes to Northstar or Squaw Valley. Diamond Peak in Incline Village is 15 mi and about 27 minutes [per Google]. Large, flat, easy to navigate driveway - on a plowing contract.
Front entry is level with large flat driveway [no front stairs] which is rare in Tahoe, and very convenient for bringing in groceries and luggage. Plenty of driveway for your cars, boat, and toys.
Full Kitchen is adorable, and well equipped with newer refrigerator, newer 6-burner range, new microwave, pots, pans, strainer, bowls, blender, wine glasses & opener, plastic glasses, beach coffee/drink mugs, and more.
• Full bath and extra half bath with storage space for toiletries and more.
• Full size Washer & Dryer - [Bring detergent pods]
Sleeping: There are beds for up to 7 people - however we recommend these be used as convenience options. Max occupancy 5 people. Space is most comfortable for 1-2 couples or a family with 2 adults and up to 3 children.
1. Bedroom one is on main floor and has 1 queen bed,
2. Bedroom two is upstairs, with privacy door, and has 3 twin beds; two are set up and one is a pop-up trundle. Two can be pushed together to use them like a king bed for an adult couple.
3. Queen sleeper sofa in living room; works as twin with bedding un-opened, and Queen when open
Driveway and Walkway are on a seasonal snow removal program and will be cleared for you if it snows six inches or more.
Look forward to having you as our guest!

- We have super-close beach / lake access - and almost as important we are away from the 'Y' where hwy 89 and hwy 28 junction. This is a rare rental that you don't have to cross the highway to get to the beach! In Summer that can take 10 or more minutes just standing there to cross if your rental property doesn't happen to be at a crosswalk. I know because I've done it!...moreless

About the owner: Hi, we are Nancy and Phil and lived in the Tahoe/Reno area for 17 years, and are now working in Denver. We are avid kayakers, x-c skiers, and tennis players [and like good food and wine too!]. We consult nationally, and are currently based in Denver; we are striving to be 'corporate drop out' types, but are not quite there yet. When at the cabin, we walk with our coffee to the beach each morning and with our wine in the evening. Our favorite thing about this cabin is that we feel very relaxed and calm when we are here, and that time just seems to stand still during our visits. We hope you experience the same.
Why the Owner Chose Lake Forest, Dollar Point, CA, USA:
We specifically chose Tahoe City for its restaurants and shops and centralized proximity to the West shore area, Kings Beach, and Incline Village. We searched for 4 years to find a cabin that had close beach access without crossing a major road. Through diligence and timing we were fortunate to find a cabin in our price range that felt so private, and had such amazing access to the beach - the properties on the next street are in the multi-million $ range as they are lakefront. It was an easy choice with six public beaches, boat launch, golf, tennis, and multiple ski resorts all either at our back door, or within 15-20 minutes.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Three of our favorite things about this cabin are; the quiet, the amazing proximity to the lake, and the unspoiled turn-of-the-century feel of this original Tahoe summer cabin and neighborhood. We are far away from the highway and road noise, which just killed the ambiance of so many properties we had rented through the years. From our location you hear the rushing of the breeze through the pines. Our double lot provides extra space, and even though we have neighbors, the lots are situated such that we never see or hear them so the property feels very private. Very few rental properties match our beach access as you can pour your cup of coffee and walk a few houses one way or the other to take in the essence of Tahoe. We have a favorite coffee-sipping spot we can share with you [works well with a glass of wine in your hand too :)
