Why The Owner chose California

We have always wanted a place in the mountains that wasn't loaded with tourists. If you are wanting to unplug and enjoy the outdoors, this cabin makes for a great year round vacation location. This is a great place for creating memories. Most guests have appreciated our attention to detail.

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin is a wonderful getaway, surrounded by lush hills with lots to do or if you want to just relax! We have a hard time leaving once we are there.

Cozy and charming!

  • 5 of 5

What a great little cabin, nestled in the woods of Strawberry, ten minutes or less from Sierra at Tahoe ski resort; my son and I couldn't have been happier! The owner, Valerie, is one of the sweetest, most charming vacation owners I've ever run across; accessible, helpful, gracious and flexible- what a joy to have made her acquaintance! The cabin is very quaint, with a great fireplace, modern kitchen and comfortable beds. In addition, if you are renting ski equipment, Squirrel at the general store a stones' throw away will rent you brand new ski equipment at a great price. The accommodations, hospitality and genuine warmth of Valerie and all her contacts made this a wonderful three night stay; we hope to come back for some more skiing soon!

Lovely cabin, lovely owner

  • 5 of 5

This was our third or fourth time back and the cabin never fails to please. This time we found two new trails we hadn't hiked before that were magnificent. The cabin itself is immaculately clean--pine walls glean, no tiny bits of grunge in corners that one often finds in rural setting. The kitchen is amazingly well-equipped, plenty of towels in the bathroom, charming cozy bedroom.

We will be definitely be back, wouldn't stay anywhere else in the area. I can't say enough nice things about the owner.

Good for young children who are old enough to be safe climbing fairly steep ladder to three bed loft area.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this rental to anyone who is looking for a cozy cabin in a great location! I had the best experience working with Valerie. She was quick to respond to emails and always available for questions when I called. The cabin was neat and very clean! Great location to South Lake Tahoe attractions. Perfect for hiking, a day at the lake, or walking around South Lake Tahoe and just taking in the sights. This cabin was in the perfect location close enough to anything we needed but far enough away from all of the congestion of the holiday weekend. I will definitely be back!! Overall it was a very pleasant experience.

Clean and well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was great for our family of 3 and could have easily fit more. The kitchen had everything- it definitely didn't feel like your typical rental house stuff. The furniture was comfy. The place was clean and tidy. The owner is so nice and very responsive. We would definitely rent again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review! We are so glad you and Alicia found our place and are returning this weekend to create more memories. Have you stopped at the great little market across from Strawberry Lodge? They have new owners and now have really tasty coffee and healthy, tasty snacks. This is a nice place to stop before hitting the near by hiking trails. Thanks again for your kind words. We work hard at making our place a relaxing get-a-way and looking forward to your return visit!

Perfect Ski Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 4 nights, and skied each day at Sierra At Tahoe resort. It was the perfect location for a winter getaway. The cabin is warm and cozy, with a nicely equipped kitchen. Plenty of room for my family of four, and we enjoyed the board games and air hockey table each night.
