About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

All of those hard-working moms deserve a weekend getaway this May! Reserve 2 nights and get 1 night free.

So come have fun and make some great memories in our cozy West Shore cabin. The cabin, which is perfect for either one or two families, is on the quiet, wooded West Shore of Lake Tahoe within minutes of beautiful beaches and amazing ski resorts. Our cabin sits between two empty lots, so your stay will feel private and peaceful.

In the summer, relax or barbecue out on the large front deck. Walk to the nearby beach, country store, pizza parlor, or park. A paved bike path will take you north to Chamber's Landing or Tahoe City, or south to Sugar Pine Point State Park. There are easy or more difficult hikes both north and south, and the soft-sand beaches of Meeks Bay are just 5 minutes south. And a little farther south is the gorgeous Emerald Bay. In the cabin you'll find a huge stock of movies, boardgames, and books. If you prefer Tahoe in the winter, you'll find cross-country skiing just down the road, and a great hill for sledding about 10 minutes north. We've also made mini sledding hills (and snowmen and igloos) with our kids right outside our door.

The cabin has lots of Old Tahoe charm, and we've made some nice upgrades, such as new flooring throughout, an updated master bedroom, a new gas free-standing stove, new windows, and a new washer and dryer set. The master bedroom downstairs has a queen bed, and the loft has two twin beds and a small sitting area with a twin hide-a-bed. The upstairs bedroom has both a queen and a twin (we can also provide a pack-n-play and portable high chair for the littlest ones). There are two full bathrooms in the cabin.

We've worked hard to make this cabin a comfy and cozy place, and we are hoping that you and your friends and family will enjoy it as much as we do! We have opted out of VRBO's "Book It Now" feature because we prefer to talk to guests personally, plus it saves the guests from paying a service fee. Along with accepting payment via check, we also accept credit card payments via a third-party payment site.

About The Owner

Thank you for visiting our Cozy Cabin page! We love the area and the quiet neighborhood. We'd love to share the beauty of the mountains and the lake with you!

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2009

Why The Owner chose Lake Tahoe West Shore CA

Having a home in Tahoe has been a longtime dream of ours! We hadn't spent much time on the West Shore until finding this place, and we are so happy that our realtor opened our eyes to the area. The view from this side of the lake is amazing, and the neighborhood of Tahoma is close to everything and yet also far away enough to offer lots of peace and quiet.

"Just Right" Cozy Cabin on the West Shore
average rating of 4.9130435 based on 23 reviews

Amazing cabin for families, super clean and conveniently located!

  • 5 of 5

From first contact the owner Pennie was easy to work with and truely cared that my family and I would have a good experience. Upon arrival the pride that Pennie takes in the cabin was evident. Everything was in excellent repair, the drive and walkways were clear of snow and the cabin was immaculately clean. The rooms were well sized and the sofas were very comfortable. It was super nice to have an upstairs and downstairs bath and the kids loved sleeping in the loft, which is really like another bedrooom. The linens were good quality and the beds were very comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed and all itmes were spotless. When we had a huge snowstorm, the owners crew came and cleared the drive and walkways and Pennie gave us a late checkout when 80 was closed. If you are looking for a family getaway to ski homewood or just see the sites on the west shore this is the place. Pennie treats her guests like family, stay with her, you wont regret it.

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 12 year old son and I enjoyed some Spring Skiing at Homewood Resort just minutes from the PERFECT Cozy Cabin. We had never explored Tahoma - but fell in love. Started with all of Pennie's great recommendations, but the best was the obvious love and attention the owners have for their home away from home. As first timers through VRBO, the Cozy Cabin exceeded our expectations. Great size and price for us and we already want to return this summer with friends. Best stocked kitchen, movie library (amazing collection!), clean and nicely decorated, comfy beds, thick towels, easy stove/heat and spectacular pine trees outside your windows. Walked the safe and easily navigatable neighborhood many mornings and started dreaming of having our own place to share some day! Thanks to Pennie for a great spring break vacation with the family.

A wonderfully cozy cabin in Tahoma!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at the cabin over the 4th of July weekend, and we really enjoyed our stay. The cabin is exactly as described--cozy and comfortable, and located to all the greatness that the West Shore has to offer. The kitchen is outfitted with all the basics you'll need, has comfy beds, and we enjoyed the movie selection, too.

Pennie is super responsive and helpful. We'll be returning for sure, and highly recommend.

It was perfect

  • 5 of 5

The cabin worked out perfectly for us. It was clean and well cared for. Pennie was great to work with and very responsive. I guess the best review I could offer is to say that I would definitely return if I'm ever looking for a place in Tahoe again.
