About Mike

Property has been in the family for 50 years. We are second generation owners. We take great pride in keeping the property clean and neat and well appointed. We supply many things that others don't, e.g., all paper products, beach towels, Kleenex, ice melt, ice chest for beach, etc.

Why Mike chose McKinney Estates

Lake Tahoe is truly a year around vacation paradise. Summer weather is ideal, seldom getting above 90 degrees. Fall colors are wonderful! Winter wonderland with skiing from slopes where you can view one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. Springs are cool, with the melting snow filling the creeks. A true wonderland!

What makes this cabin unique

Property is close to many things to do. Hiking out the front door, sandy beach about 3 miles south. Alpine skiing 5 minutes in winter, and close to many more throughout the Lake Tahoe basin. Within walking distance to the trailhead of the world famous Rubicon Trail. Nevada casinos a short drive. Reno is about one hour away. Boat launching nearby. Several California State Parks along the west shore of Tahoe.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This cabin was perfect in every way. It is well kept, very easy to rent, and priced very reasonably. It is easily accessible off the main road (HWY 89), and located in a very quiet neighborhood. The owner, Mike, was a pleasure to work with, and made it so easy to rent (keys sent ahead of time, email explaining where everything was and how it works, notes in the cabin with excellent directions, etc.). Without a doubt the cabin was the most up to date and well equipped rental we have ever stayed in. Everything worked as expected, and we literally didn’t need to bring anything (including books, video’s, snow toys, plenty of linens, etc. – it even had electric blankets on each bed!). We will definitely recommend this cabin to our friends, and will stay there again in the future.

We booked this beautiful cabin for our Christmas vacation and we are leaving with some great memories. This place has everything! We were delighted by how clean and perfect everything was. It made us feel right at home. The cabin is very spacious and the large windows in the living room give a great view of the sky. The driveway was clear of ice and snow while the house was nice and warm for our arrival. This place has everything covered from internet to family board games. Hiking trails and stores are very close. The cabin is in a very quiet and secluded neighborhood surrounded by many trees.The owner was very responsive and left the best instructions you could hope for. We definitely found our goto cabin when we visit Tahoe again. Thank you Mike for sharing your beautiful cabin with our family.

Perfect for what we were looking for.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Big George's house in August of 2018. I have a family of 5 and this house was perfect for our needs. The boys took the upstairs room and my daughter had her own room downstairs next to us. The cabin was well stocked with items like cleaning supplies, trash bags, dish and laundry soap so that was nice. They also had two coolers and beach chairs you could use which means less stuff you had to bring up. They had every pot and pan you might need when cooking for a party of 5. They also had a coffee maker, blender, and toaster which helped quite a bit. The location was perfect because we prefer the West Shore. We had some car trouble on our last day and the owner of the property was a gem in helping guide us on who to call out there. He was a huge help and let us stay one more night while our car was getting taken care of. We can't wait to come back next year. The kids loved the WiFi by the way, it's huge when you have teenagers even if we were on vacation.

Cozy and well stocked!

We loved staying here! It was perfect for our family and had everything we needed - especially since we came from out of state and couldn't bring a ton of extra stuff with us. It was clean and cozy!

Comfortable and cozy

  • 4 of 5

Since I had reserved cabin for my family to stay for two nights, I had lots of sightseeing questions of the area. Mike always responded quickly with very useful information. Thanks, Mike!

We had a great vacation in Lake Tahoe for three days and two nights! Enjoyed the beautiful lake and very cozy and comfortable cabin. My family from overseas enjoyed it very much!

  • 5 of 5

Fully functional kitchen. Everything that is needed to cook with. Nice supply of dvd’s, comfortable furniture. Dining area is small, but due to great deck area with ample seating and nice patio furniture, just not an issue. The owner was great to interact with, very organized with all needed information. A great spot and would definitely recommend. Very comfortable.
