Tahoma Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1/1, Sleeps 2 adults & 2 children under 12

Just steps from Tahoe National Forest, this cozy cabin offers a spectacular view of nature. The peaceful ambiance at this cabin offers guests a reason to do absolutely nothing, completely without guilt! Slow down, take a break, unwind, loosen up, chill out, and put your feet up. And when you are as relaxed as you can be, West Shore is a terrific place from which to do just about everything at Lake Tahoe.

We are two miles from West Shore Café and Inn. We are happy to have guests of the wedding party book with us. We are not licensed for events - parties, bridal showers, weddings, etc.

Enjoy the beauty of North Lake Tahoe’s sunny West Shore in our guest cabin. Our cabin is two blocks off of Highway 89 and backs up to open space. It is four hours to San Francisco and two hours to Sacramento. There’s off street parking for one vehicle in the winter. We own the lot next to us and it can be used for parking additional cars and/or a boat in the summer.

The guest cabin was built in 1989 and has just been updated. It is ideal for a couple with small children. The fully-equipped kitchen has a coffee maker, microwave, plus all other eating, serving, and preparation items. The living room has a queen sleeper sofa, recliner, and a Flat Screen Cable HDTV with a DVD player. There is another Flat Screen TV with DVD player in the bedroom. The bedroom has a queen bed. The hall closet has a washer/dryer. There’s a Weber grill and chairs on the deck.

This is a guest house on a property that has a larger cabin that is also available for rent (see ad 31691). The main cabin may be rented by other guests during your stay.

Bring your laptop, we have WIFI. We just installed a landline phone for your convenience. We have provided 2 sleds and portable chairs that you may borrow.

Spring, Summer & Fall Activities

From zip lining through trees (Tahoe Tree Top Adventure Park or Heavenly) to roller skating at 8200 feet (Squaw Valley), and from stargazing to sunset cruises.

Meeks Bay has a store, beach chairs, picnic tables, a sandy beach, 2 boat ramps, ski boat rentals, canoe and kayak rentals, paddleboats, and guided fishing excursions.

Only 2 blocks to the West Shore Biking Path that goes north to Tahoe City and South to Meek’s Bay or Sugar Pine Park. Eagle Rock (3 miles) is one of Lake Tahoe’s most spectacular hiking experiences. Surrounding the Lake Tahoe Basin are hundreds of miles of trails ranging from easy to strenuous (a hiking book is in the cabin). You can go mountain biking on the trails that surround the lake. A hiking trail is next to our cabin. a 5 mile Rafting Trip down the Truckee River from Tahoe City ending at the River Ranch Restaurant. Go underground fish viewing at the Taylor Creek Stream Profile Chamber. Go horseback riding at Camp Richardson Corral. Have fun scuba diving at Emerald Bay. Heavenly offers summer tubing or a gondola ride. Go golfing at Edgewood Tahoe a course that sits next to the lake. Squaw Valley is adding many events and activities for families.

Our cabin is on a flat road for easy access when snowing. We pay for a snow plow for the driveways and provide a shovel for sidewalks. Our house is next to open space (greenbelt) which can be used for sledding, hiking, and snowshoeing. Sugar Pine Park has cross-country skiing and is within walking distance. Homewood Mountain Ski Resort (2 miles) is a great place for children and adults to take lessons. Many savings packages are available.

Our family likes hiking, bike riding, going to the beach, and eating at buffets in Reno & South Shore in the summer. In the winter, our kids enjoy sledding, snowboarding and skiing. I enjoy staying at home and reading.

A lovely weekend stay

  • 5 of 5

This was such a clean and cozy location. The weather was rainy and the road to South Lake Tahoe was closed due to a fire the night before, so we spent more time by the property than anticipated. We had a good time there. There is a lovely trail right out the back that goes straight to state park and national forest. The place had all the needed amenities for cooking meals and just being comfortable in general. I would return to again.

Great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

Nice and quiet at the end of a road. Enough room for 2 adults and 2 children. Great location, easy to get to many places in Tahoe. Easy to follow instructions to access the rental. The only thing I needed was a full lenght mirror as I was there to be a bridesmaid. Good deal, would definitely stay again when going through Tahoe!

Quiet woodsy environment

We so enjoyed the piece and quiet of this guest house (after our joyful but hectic wedding parties we attended!) The place is just as pictured and worked very well for our needs.

Great time at Homewood cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have made it a tradition through the years to spend one week at Tahoe during the summer. Over the past three years, we have rented homes/cabins through VRBO. Our choice this year was the best yet. Its location on the quieter West Side was in proximity to everything that Tahoe offers--bike riding, kayaking, walking trails, and "beaching" at Meeks Bay.

We were pleased with the cabin since it had just enough of the modern amenities (Wi-Fi, DirectTV) to go along with some rustic charm. The one bedroom featured a queen bed that had the right cushion and firmness. The closet & dresser space was more than enough. The kitchen had adequate counter space and the cupboards were stocked with the basic necessities. There is a newer model microwave and fridge, very nice. A roomy kitchen table, the living room was quite adequate. We really liked the updated bathroom, rectangle shaped and spacious. The washer and dryer are smallish, but quite adequate.

We also enjoyed meeting one of the owners and the advice she gave. The area was very quiet and near a hiking trail. We hope to stay there again, and again!
