About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Cabin is newly remodeled with granite counter tops, tile flooring, new carpet, stainless steel appliances, and gorgeous redwood decking with romantic evening low-lights, all which backs up to scenic National Forest. Sleeps 8 comfortably with all house hold furnishings. Our friends laugh when we say it's a cabin because they describe our cabin as a luxurious home in the woods with all the amenities one could want. All we ask is that you treat our place like your own!

Keywords: Kyburz is located approx. 35mins from S. Lake Tahoe. Our cabin is centrally located for the perfect outdoors adventurer who enjoys exploring by day and relaxing in the evening. Our cabin backs up to Desolation Wilderness/National Forest and is a short walk to the American River. Conveniently located to amazing pristine lakes; Union Valley, Wright's, Echo, and of course breath taking Lake Tahoe. Our cabin is perfect for a family retreat or weekend getaway.

Relax and hear the river roar or walk to natural waterfalls during the snow melt season (Feb-July). Enjoy hiking right from the backyard on the Pony Express Trail. Go hiking 1 mile to Sugar Loaf Mountain which provides an easy day of hiking/climbing, or head across the street to Silver Fork Road where you'll discover areas great for cycling, day swimming, camping, fishing, kayaking, tubing and more.

During winter season Sierra at Tahoe Ski Resort is only approx (weather/traffic depending) 17mins, enjoy skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, snowshoeing

Lovely home! The owners were amazing to work with, the house was fully furnished with pots/pans, blankets etc. Only complaint was that it got really cold at night and there was no central heat so the fire place and the little heater up stairs were what we had to rely on. Overall I would totally recommend to family and friends!

Great location,beautiful mountain scenery and close to everything you need.

  • 4 of 5

Nice mountain cabin close to everything we needed. Huge deck which made it even more enjoyable. We had a few door issues but the owner was very nice about it and did not seem to be aware of them.The river is right across the highway and the cabin is a very short distance off the opposite side of highway 50. I would definitely go back and rent this cabin again.

Perfect spot to stay for skiing

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this 2 bedroom (1 upstairs w/ .5 bath, 1 downstairs) and 1.5 bathroom cabin during our first skiing trip this past winter with our kids. The owners were very helpful and accommodating. The cabin had everything we needed during our stay and I felt right at home. It's close to Sierra at Tahoe so it was great to come back here after a long day skiing. The fireplace is great and the owners had wood for us so we didn't have to bring any with us. The kids were able to sled down the hill in their front yard and had a blast. The neighbor across the street is friendly and welcoming. Even our four legged child had a great time here.

I would recommend this cabin to friends and family.

Beautiful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this cabin for the weekend. It's a cute cabin, with a lot of charm.

We enjoyed the space and the amenities. The owner provided us with a detailed packet explaining how everything worked and where to find the local attractions and outings which were immensely helpful.

We had hoped the cabin was a little more secluded, but in the end, it's a great cabin and we are considering returning the next time we are in the area.

Charming house approaching South Tahoe with old school charm

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter and I decided to hike into Desolation Wilderness on short notice after Memorial Day and scrambled to find a place to stay the Friday night before at the end of our drive from the Bay Area. Sam's house was a nice discovery. It's got wonderful old school charm. It's very convenient, a block off I-50 but quiet at night (you hear the river, not the traffic).

Sam was very responsive to my handful of questions. The house was clean. My kids are grown up but they had some toys there and kid movies for the TV to play if you wanted. I'd recommend this home to families or groups.
