About Ken and Kim Berry

After growing up with a vacation home in Chamberlands, my husband, children, and I have repeated the tradition and have owned a cabin in McKinney Rubicon for the last nine years. Recently we relocated, three blocks away, to our dream house! We are excited to share a slice of our 'happy place' with vacationers who will enjoy a beautiful place to relax, cook, entertain, and rest their heads after fun filled days on the westshore of Lake Tahoe!

Ken and Kim Berry purchased this house in 2012

What makes this house unique

Custom built home with unsurpassed attention to detail. Built 2005, originally as builders dream home. Upgrades abound, Brazilian cherry wood floors throughout, whole house built in sound system with each room having individual volume controls, great, quiet, end of culdesac location, great hiking trails right outside the door!

Beautiful, well-appointed home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at Berry's Lair and would love to come back! The kitchen is well-stocked with cooking equipment, I appreciated the extra toiletries in the bathrooms and overall, it's just a really clean, comfortable home. The playroom is a great space for kids or just lounging, the decks are peaceful and the location is ideal for spending time at Meek's, Chambers, etc.

Perfect Tahoe Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing weekend at Berry's Lair. I would highly recommend this cabin it is a gem in a great area. Close enough to Tahoe City, but far enough away to feel like you are removed from the hustle and bustle of busy weekends. It had every amenity we were looking for. Most importantly, it was nice and updated, yet still had the charming mountain feel we were looking for. I can't wait to stay there again!

Fantastic Tahoe Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Berry's Lair! The cabin was gorgeous (even better than pictures!), more than enough for our family of 5 (3 daughters, husband & wife). We hung out on the main floor most of our stay, enjoying the open floor plan. We wished our friends could've joined us, as it is a great layout with another family room and bedrooms downstairs. The kitchen and dining area were fabulous, with all the amenities needed. We chose to enjoy the cabin and cooked awesome dinners, rather than go out to eat! The location was perfect, as we went to Homewood to ski, and also enjoyed the sledding hill, both less than 2 miles away. We also drove over to Squaw, which was a short 20 minute drive.

We had snow the entire time, so the cabin was gorgeous, surrounded by pine trees covered by snow. We will definitely come back again! All this, plus the owners were fantastic to work with --a MUST stay!

A perfect snowy Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Berry's Lair! This vacation property was fabulous - everything you need is in the kitchen, the house is bright and airy, wonderful views all around. It was like being in a treehouse. We had loads and loads of snow and found a good sledding hill right behind the house, snowshoeing trails up to lake views - and we were close to Sugar Pint Point, a favorite destination. We found the house to be very comfortable and I would love to come back! The owners are extremely nice and available for anything you need. You can't go wrong.

We love Berry's Lair!

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible week-long stay at Berry's Lair! The cabin is gorgeous, the nicest we've ever stayed in! The kitchen is very well equipped and the beds were super comfortable. It was very quiet and peaceful as well. We loved the deck as well as the living room and dining seating areas. The house is beautifully appointed and we loved all the bears!

Comfortable Cabin with Tahoe Charm

  • 5 of 5

All of our family enjoyed our stay at Berry's Lair. It was clean, modern and very comfortable. The kitchen is fully-equipped. (In fact, we liked the cooktop so much we're going to get one like it in our home!) It was a perfect fit for our family of 6. The cabin was spacious and decorated with Tahoe charm. Sugar Pine Point State Park and Lake Tahoe are close by. The owners were very nice to us and made us feel welcome from the start. We would definitely like to return.
