Homewood, Lake Tahoe West Shore Family Cabin

Bedrooms 3
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

We are located in Homewood between Chamber's Landing and Tahoma.

Our private, newly remodeled home is in West Shore, Lake Tahoe.

Walk through the door of our cabin into all of the comforts and amenities that you would typically expect to have in your own home. Downstairs features a full kitchen with custom concrete countertops, custom cabinets and stainless appliances; dining room with a sliding door leading to the deck; living room with a flat screen t.v. and fireplace; full bathroom with a walk-in tiled slate shower and custom concrete counter; a master bedroom with a King bed; and a laundry room. Upstairs you will find two rooms: a large room with a queen bed and two twin trundle beds (sleeping for 4 in twins or make 2 kings) and a loft room with a door for privacy and a full size bed. There is also a full, tiled bath upstairs with a tub/shower.

This cabin has been in our family for many years and has seen generations of families. We are kid friendly but sorry, no 'furry' kids:) In the winter relax by the wood burning stove and play games or watch your favorite movie. Just a short drive to Homewood Ski Resort for skiiing or snow-boarding or to Granlibakken for some sledding. If you don't want to venture out, enjoy sledding or cross country skiing on the Rubicon Trail. In the summer (our favorite time of the year) walk out the door onto the deck and enjoy the peacefulness and beauty of the area. Grill up some dinner on our gas or charcoal barbeque, sit back and relax. You may even see a black bear stroll through the landscape! If the beach is what you are looking for, we have many nearby with our favorite being Meeks Bay.

We hope you will enjoy our cabin as much as we do.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

It was the perfect cabin for our family. It was us and our 4 little ranging from .2-8. Plenty of firewood and the kitchen was crazy well stocked. Was able to make a cake. Brand new everything to include washer and dryer that saved us. Had to continually dry the kids snow pants, hats and jackets. Walking distance to rubicon trail. We spent a day sledding a nearby Granlikken as well. Drive way and road to house was always being plowed in a timely manner definitely will stay again. We probably could only fit 2 more people before we felt crowded

Very cozy house in a wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this very clean and well equipped house. We were three adults and two kids, so the three bedrooms were perfect for us. One bedroom has quite a lot of beds, so theoretically there would have been space for more people.

The house was clean, and has a tasteful interior. No problem with nothing. The house is surrounded by trees and some houses here and there, but you still have a feeling of being wonderfully secluded. We enjoyed the place in winter with a bit of snow around. The rubicon trail starts nearby and is worth a hike.

I believe it's also a lot of fun in the summer with this nice deck leading directly from the kitchen/dining area to the outsides. It was very easy with kids, they were happy just playing outside in the woods.

We definitely want to come back soon. We would have prolonged our stay, but unfortunately the house was already booked. No wonder!

Cozy Quiet Cabin with a Fantastic Kitchen

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay! Two families with 4 adults and 4 children (ages 2-5) stayed for a week. The cabin was absolutely perfect and the kitchen was fully stocked with all essentials. Everyone had their own space; adults got the downstairs area with the wood burning stove and kitchen, and the kids spent their time playing in the upstairs area or out front in the yard. The yard was a perfect play area. Lots of space for snowball fights and we built a little sled run that was perfect for our young children. The only sad part was we didn't discover the Rubicon Trail until the last day of our vacation, which means we'll just have to visit again in the future!

Definitely a 5 star place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed at Cindy's place in Homewood and had a wonderful time. It is a beautiful cabin. We hope to return there in the winter and next summer, as we love to go to Lake Tahoe. The cabin was spotless and had everything you could want in the kitchen. The bathrooms were great and beautiful and the beds were extremely comfortable. The living room had a cozy fireplace and there was tons of firewood at our disposal. I highly recommend Cindy's place in Homewood. Thank you. Eileen
