About Ramona Hodges

In 1989, my husband, Ed, and I, realized a dream to build a cabin in Lake Tahoe. Ed taught science and Math at a Middle school for 38 years and I worked as an RN at a local hospital for 40 years. We have lived in San Jose for nearly 45 years & have 3 grown children and 4 grandchildren. We are a very close family and enjoy spending time together. Our family has had many memorable times together at the cabin; skiing, playing games, sharing meals, hiking, biking, swimming, and so much more.

Ramona Hodges purchased this cabin in 1989

Why Ramona Hodges chose Lake Tahoe West Shore CA

We had always wanted a vacation home; a place to 'get-away' and find serenity amid the natural beauty of our earth. There is no place more beautiful than Lake Tahoe!!

So, one day, when the opportunity arose to buy property in the Chamberlands, a premier subdivision on the Westshore, we jumped at the chance to realize our dream. We worked with a local contractor to plan and build our vacation cabin and are grateful to realize our dream.

What makes this cabin unique

We love our cabin for the peace, fun, warmth and beauty it provides. In the summer we enjoy walking in the Chamberlands, and to the beach. We love sitting on our deck, barbecuing, playing games and sharing time and love with our family and friends. We enjoy eating breakfast at the Firesign Cafe and dinner at the many lakeside restaurants nearby and in Tahoe City. We like to drive to Virginia City and visit the historic sights. My husband likes to go to Cabelas on Highway 80, a 45 minute drive, and I like to gamble occasionally at the nearby Casinos. We never tire of visiting beautiful places such as Emerald Bay, Eagle Lake & nearby Erhman Mansion. Our family & friends also enjoy everything the Lake has to offer; biking, hiking, boating, fishing, skiing, gambling, shopping and so on.. One of my favorite things to do is to make needlepoint, embroidered and crocheted art work for the cabin which, in my opinion, just adds to its charm. My husband likes to build things that make our life and our guests lives easier and more fun such as: a giant swing and horse shoe pit in the backyard and a covered firewood shed close to the cabin making it more convenient to get wood for the fireplace in the winter. Our children love to ski and snowboard and appreciate the convenience of driving such a short distance to several ski resorts.

Fun and Friendly Tahoe Cabin

  • 5 of 5

It was a nice getaway and the cabin was really great. The cabin is in a great location near skiing and also nice markets and restaurants. The cabin is warm and well equipped. The design is nice and the living room area with fireplace is open and great for playing boardgames and relaxing. Our kids enjoyed the backyard, the swing, the sleds and star gazing. We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning.

Clean, well kept, comfortable property that has "everything" you need.

  • 5 of 5

Second time staying at Ramona's and it was another great vacation. It is exactly as described. Ramona is a pleasure to deal with. I love Tahoe in the fall while the weather is still pretty good and the crowds are gone. Nice days and a little chill at night, which makes the fireplace and available firewood a plus. Look forward to returning again next year. Thanks to Ramona and Ed for sharing their cabin.

Wonderful, easy to find and great location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this cute cabin for the weekend. It had everything we needed and more. It was in a great location and wasn't far from things. The master bed was very comfortable and the house was clean. If we come back to Tahoe we would definitely like to rent this home again and I would recommend it to our friends and family.

Chamber s landing is cool and has a great grill and rest. Wifi is good. Blueraydvd is working. Bbq works and doesn't Burn chicken nor filets.

Would repeat next year.

Great Tahoe Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Ramona's Retreat was a perfect example of a Tahoe cabin. My groomsmen and myself stayed there for 3 nights during my wedding weekend. It was a great spot for us, especially since it was just a short walk to the bar at Chamber's Landing. The moose head was a big hit as well!

Ramona and Edward were very helpful and responsive throughout the entire booking process and stay. They even reached out after our stay to see if any items that they found belonged to my group.

Two thumbs up, would definitely recommend!

Owner's Response: Thank you David for taking the time to write a review of your stay at our cabin.......and, such a nice one at that!! Please forgive my late response; it is called a "super busy new grandma life". Anyway, it is always a special thing for Ed and I to hear what our guests like about the cabin and, your review included one of our favorite's..... "a short walk to the Chamber's Landing Bar". On a nice Summer or Fall evening it is wonderful to walk to the bar and enjoy a "Chambers Punch" surrounded by beautiful views of the lake and mountains!!! Again, thank you for the review and please do come back!! Ramona
