About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms sleeps 8

When we walked into this cabin we fell in love with the all-wood interior. It had the feel of a true vacation cabin where we could leave it all behind. We hope you feel it too.

This charming cabin has 4 full bedrooms; two of them downstairs, and two spacious bedrooms upstairs. There is plenty of closet space in each room, and in the downstairs hallway.

There are beds for eight, 2 twin and 3 queen.

Forced-air heating though-out, with vents in all rooms, keeps everybody warm in the winter.

An open room with a 55" smart HD TV with a Bluetooth compatible soundbar, dining area, and a kitchen, all come together to keep your group connected. Wood burning fireplace insert provides all of the atmosphere you want with plenty of wood provided.

Also, a 1905 Chickering & Sons piano beckons piano-players to lead the group in sing-alongs...'Those Were the Days'.

The backyard is all fenced so little ones can be comfortably left outside. No outdoor fires allowed.

There is also a full-size arcade bowling game for everyone in the family to play. Take no quarters as it's set for FREE PLAY.

Beautiful Lake Tahoe is just a little over a mile behind you with all it has to offer. Stateline Casinos are about 6 miles away with their night-life and fine dining.

Heavenly Valley gondolas are closer yet.

All of the rest of Tahoe and its surroundings are at your feet.

Use this cabin as group / family-value vacation, or as a private weekend get-away for just the two of you.

We want to offer a tremendous value for all and hope you enjoy your stay.

We also want to develop a core group of vacationers who will want to come back year after year and enjoy all the area has to offer.

About Sharon & Lloyd

We are just a couple who managed to find this cabin and we plan on using it regularly along with our family of grown kids. The goal of renting it some of the time is simply to offset the costs associated with utilities and maintenance over the course of a year.

Sharon & Lloyd purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Sharon & Lloyd chose Tahoe Island

We love the area and this is an ideal location in a great neighborhood. There is a heatlhy mix of vacation homes and live-in locals who are great resources for non-touristy ideas and local places to discover.

What makes this cabin unique

While staying here you can enjoy the simple joys of being away from it all while being close-enough to grab a local coffee, or a Starbucks at the 'Y', where you also can re-load on groceries at Raley's or buy a raft at K Mart. You can get that movie you've been wanting to watch, or catch-up on your writing at the built-in desk in the Master Bedroom.

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

This is a great cabin! Everything was very organized and clean. Kitchen has been redone and is stocked nicely. Kitchen table is a little small if you have more than four people in your group but plenty of seating in the main room with a nice TV. Loved the wood burning stove!

Lovely Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here and really appreciate that Sharon & Lloyd shared their cozy cabin with us. It has great space. Two large rooms upstairs and two decent sized rooms downstairs. We (2 adults, 3 kids) shared the cabin with my brother and his family (2 adults, 2 kids) and found there was more than enough space for both of our families. The back deck is a great place to hang out and the backyard is probably great for kids. It was pretty chilly while we were there so we stayed inside and cozy most of the time. The wood burning stove kept the cabin wonderfully warm.

We really appreciated that the kitchen was well stocked with utensils, pots, pans, all the things you need for cooking and basics like paper towel, soap, etc were provided. We had a great time and hope to stay here again.

Also, this cabin is in a great location, very close to Camp Richardson. My extended family was camping at the Fallen Leaf Lake campground and this cabin was about a 6 minute drive from there.

Thank you for providing us with an awesome place to stay.

It was perfect for our first family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Staying at this beautiful cabin was perfect for my family and I. So comfortable and cozy, with modern amenities. It felt like home, with awesome nature right in your back yard, waking up and have coffee on the deck watching the squirrels and chipmunks running back and forth up and down the trees, the perfect weather during the day and night. The beds were so comfortable along with everthing else. It's within minutes to a convenience store, and to restaurants while travelling on a bike. We loved our stay at this cabin. Plan on going back for our next vacation. This was the best fourth of July celebration we ever had!
