About the Property

2nd Bedroom = Large 2nd Gathering Place with 1/2 bath

Classic Lincoln Log Cabin in sunny spot of TAHOE PINES. Located in one of the West Shore's most beloved neighborhoods, Tahoe Pines is great for strolling to the beach, riding bicycles, and easy walks in the woods. It is a sunny friendly place. You just might get hooked. :-)


EASY GOING RUGGED authentic Log Cabin. Set-up to feel homey and soothing. A well traveled obedient dog is welcome (SEE DETAILS UNDER AMENITIES FOR DOG PARAMETERS, if you don't plan to respect them, don't book it. We want to keep it nice for everyone.)

Enjoy the EASY ACCESS of the street level main floor (only 2 steps up to the house.) The fully functional first floor includes a spacious mud room, living room, dining room, kitchen, bedroom with full-size laundry area, bathroom (tub / shower), and convenient backdoor to sunny deck & back yard. The second bedroom could be considered a bonus room given that it is as large as the living room, has a sitting area and a convenient half-bath (sink and toilet.)

Super CONVENIENT LOCATION between Sunnyside Maria and Homewood Ski Area on Lake Tahoe's West Shore. Approximately 10 min walk (1 min by car) to beach, 3 min drive to Homewood Ski area or Sunnyside, and approx. 15 min to Alpine Meadows Ski Area or 20 mins to Squaw Valley Ski Area.

We do not refund due to road conditions or storms.

Car: Recommended

The cabin is at lake level with easy access to our quiet neighborhood beach, endless trails in Blackwood Canyon, West Shore Bike Path, bus stop ( Tahoe Area Rapid Transit TART to Incline Village NV, Tahoe Trolly to South Lake Tahoe via Emerald Bay, Homewood Ski Shuttle call-n-ride, Alpine Meadows Ski Shuttle from Sunnyside to Sherwood Chair on the Back-side of Alpine Meadows).

For those who enjoy riding bicycles, Barker Pass Road is just around the bend from Tahoe Pines off W Lake Blvd. This initially level road winds through woods, meadows, and over Blackwood Creek, they offers up one of the best practically car-free climb & downhill ride in Tahoe. It is an 8 mile beautifully paved road to Barker Peak.

Amazing Lake Views and Star gazing can ba had from Eagle Rock or our neighborhood beach.

Nature-walk enthusiasts will delight in the beautifully varied terrain available from the back of our neighborhood. Fairly flat the entire way (2 mile loop +) the walk along a fire road takes you through meadows, Aspen Groves, and passes many access points to Blackwood Creek (woof!).


Owner info

About the owner: Yvette Shipman is Realtor who specializes in the Tahoe Basin CA & NV. If you are curious about Lake Tahoe real estate enjoy perusing my Best Buys, Testimonials, and Market Composition Charts, then give me a ring to brainstorm Your Tahoe Home. :-) Y-

Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Pines, Homewood, CA, USA:
Welcome to what was my first Tahoe Home back in 1998! I am delighted to now be able to share it with you. Located in one of the West Shore's most beloved neighborhoods, Tahoe Pines is great for strolling to the beach, riding bicycles, and easy walks in the woods. It is a very sunny and friendly place. You just might get hooked. :-)

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The back deck is lovely for coffee in the morning sunshine. There is a spacious mud room, makes for a handy "drop spot". The big dining room is a real luxury and leaves the living room more spacious than found in most cabins. The open upstairs bedroom enjoys lovely sun morning and afternoon, cross ventilation, it's own private half bath and makes for a great 2nd gathering space. Easy parking close to front door. Street level entry. Dog friendly neighborhood, beach and forest.
