Please note the City changed Vacation Rental Ordinances and are enforcing them with $1000 fine to guests and owner as of December 2017. Please follow the rules, if cited you will also lose your deposit. There is a parking pad at the street-only park on the parking pad. There is a maintained 100-foot asphalt path to the cabin. It will be cleared for snow, but please have your snow boots ready! Other important rules: No hot tub use between 10pm-8am, no excessive noise at any hour, place trash in the bear box, no more than 6 guests at cabin. There's only one neighbor and he is paying attention and calling police. Guests and myself were cited $1000 without warning for being in the hot tub after hours in January, 2018! Don't let it ruin your stay and my day.

A cozy theme cabin with quality log-cabin style furnishings located on a private wooded lot with direct access to USFS land, it really feels like living in the mountains! Hike out the back less than 2 minutes to incredible views of the lake and Mt Tallac and then drive or walk less than a mile to South Tahoe Brewery for a pint-it's worth it.

We nicknamed the cabin 'The Treehouse' because of it's wooded surroundings and comfy feel. It is two stories with the loft and main bedroom upstairs. The cabin sleeps 4 adults in beds. The cabin is located at the end of a dead-end street surrounded by forest. Enjoy the hot tub in the middle of a snowstorm or at the end of a long summer hike (only between operating hours). My family and friends have spent many fun-filled weeks at the cabin.

In the summer you can bike to Pope Beach and Camp Richardson. In the winter you can hike up behind the cabin and ski or snowboard down Twin Peaks for a little backcountry experience. We love it!

About Owner

I love all the outdoor activities Tahoe has to offer and a few it doesn't: my husband and I travel the world to feed our kiteboarding addiction and to immerse ourselves in a variety of cultures.

Owner purchased this Cabin in 2006

Why Owner chose South Lake Tahoe

I moved to South Lake Tahoe in 1999 with the intention of staying one winter and never left. Tahoe is an amazing place! As a lover of the outdoors, it's the most incredible place to live. Being from Oregon, my family bought a vacation home on the same street in 1983. We vacationed in Tahoe every summer and some winters while I was growing up. I have such fond memories of all of us together laughing and playing in this beautiful place. The 'hill' behind my cabin used to be our playground in the 80's. My parents still own their vacation home just one block away.

What makes this Cabin unique

Since the cabin used to be my primary residence and I love to cook, the kitchen is well stocked with quality pots and pans, and utensils. There's a blu-ray DVD player that also streams Netflix, Amazon etc. I love to listen to music and hang out with friends and family who come to visit. In the summer (and sometimes the winter too) we BBQ on the deck and eat outside on the picnic table. In the winter, we enjoy evening hot tubs with cocktails. We almost always take advantage of the short hike straight up behind the property for views of the lake-if you want more hiking once at the top of the small hill, turn left and continue on. You can hike to the very top where there is a flag and 360 degree views.

Less snow this time but not the fault of the owner :) We liked it a lot and made plenty of dinners and played games while we were here. Also close to places like "My Thai" and the casinos which makes it very convenient.

The short hike out the back door will take you to views as good as you'll get at any rental in the area. Heather is very nice and responsive to inquiries. Great place, all around, and we'll be coming back someday.

                                                                      Michelle B.

                                                                      Overall, a lovely cabin best suited for two people although it can fit up to four.  I booked the cabin for my husband and I as part of our one year wedding anniversary. The cabin is in a nice peaceful neighborhood on a dead end street.  Feels off grid, but close to many stores and activities. Comfortable bed, full kitchen, high end washer/dryer, gas BBQ, and a hot tub.  My favorite part was relaxing in the hot tub at night.  Perfect for star gazing!  The Wi-Fi works great.  There is a nice entertainment center if you feel inclined to watch a movie and a collection of books and board games.  The owner, Heather, is great at communicating.  The only suggestion I have is to add curtains and/or blinds to the downstair windows.  I really value privacy, so I felt a bit uncomfortable at night knowing that anyone could look in.

                                                                      Romantic & Relaxing Honeymoon!

                                                                      After preparing for our wedding it was wonderful to arrive at the Tree House for a romantic and relaxing honeymoon. Awaiting our arrival were a beautiful bouquet of flowers and my favorite wine was chilled. The cabin is close to all South Lake Tahoe activities and more. However, the cabin has everything and more. Awesome time and hope to return to celebrate our special day again and again.

                                                                      Property is exactly as advertised and more!

                                                                      We loved the fireplace, hot tub, big comfy bed and blankets... the trail behind the cabin leads to a gorgeous overlook of the surrounding area. Perfectly cozy for two, but might feel a bit cramped for 4 adults. Exactly what I was hoping for. :)
