Notes:

It is my second home I am happy to share it. It is in a great location. I am in a quiet neighborhood with many full time residents. I have owned it for 30 years. This home has many eyes on it. It is not a party house. It is very comfortable and cozy. It only accommodates 6 people in beds and dining room and on the deck. Not suitable for small children requiring supervision. I appreciate renters being respectful and leaving it as they find it. Follow opening and closing instructions. Thank You!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1986

About the owner: I am a business coach. I help guide business owners to become better people and create better more successful businesses. Part of the process is promoting life balance, staying active, positive mindset and doing what you love more often. I am congruent in my coaching so I create the same for myself. Tahoe provides a place to experience the balance I need summer, winter, spring or fall. I am grateful for my successes and value the ability to share my fortune with you. I want to help bring the 'FUN' back into your life. I am happy to share my home with others. The cabin is very homey & comfortable and guests feel happy and peaceful while there. I hope you enjoy it too.

Why the Owner Chose McKinney Estates, Tahoma, CA, USA:
I was a ski instructor for 4 years during my college days and loved Tahoe so much I set a goal to own a home here someday. Lucky for me that happened quickly and I was able to purchase in my late 20's. I have traveled to over 30 countries and still think Lake Tahoe is the best most beautiful place in the world for every season. I am always happy and peaceful here. It is a great location, we say the 'West shore is the Best shore'. You will understand when you visit. Quiet, calm and great location. Many outdoor activities available and if gambling is your thing you are half way between No. and So. Shore. Also 1 hour to Reno, 2 hours to Sacramento.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
In the summer there is lawn and flowers in the front and a large deck with table and chairs and BBQ in the back. Hiking or snow shoeing right out the front door. Parking for RV or boat or motorcycle trailer. Fire wood provided. Close to Chambers landing bar, pier and Restaurant, West shore Café, Swiss Lakewood restaurant, Tahoma pizza and the PDQ Tahoma market which has the best sandwiches on the lake made with homemade bread.
