Perfect Cute Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We just loved staying here at this cabin! It was perfect for my friend and I, and my two dogs. The yard is fenced which is a major plus and the hot tub was perfect. The owners are so friendly and kind and we can’t wait to come back!

Great dog friendly Tahoe cabin

  • 5 of 5

We visited Peggy and Bill’s cabin on our first ever trip to Tahoe along with our baby and dog. Peggy and Bill came to greet us upon our arrival and show us around, how to use the hot tub etc. The cabin is in a great location just minutes from many restaurants (walk to Alpina Café for your morning coffee/breakfast!) and about 8 minutes to the nearest beach. The cabin was fully stocked with everything we needed (towels, kitchen utensils etc) and even has a laundry room. The fenced backyard was great for our dog and there is a lovely hot tub and wood stove as well. We visited during the summer but will surely be back in the winter knowing how cozy it would be. Thank you Peggy and Bill for sharing your amazing space with us!

Great cabin with easy access to the lake and amenities

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at Peggy and Bill's cabin in August 2018. Our only complaint is we didn't stay longer! The cabin has everything you need and is so comfortable. After a 12 hour drive we were keen for some peace, and although in quite a populated south lake neighborhood it was lovely and quiet, except for the odd bird chirping! This home away from home is ideal as a base and close to the lake and its beauty as well as shops, restaurants etc. The kitchen and bathroom was well equipped, and we enjoyed absolutely everything. Bill and Peggy were so great and responsive to our needs, and live nearby if you need anything. I'd highly recommend their cabin, and hope to get back one of these days. Thank you!
