About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath in Quiet Neighborhood, Tahoe National Forest IS our backyard!

Tahoe is pet friendly and so are we! This inviting cabin is located in Tahoe Vista right off of highway 267, just minutes from Kings Beach and Northstar. The neighborhood is very quiet and the house is located right next to one of the Tahoe National Forest’s great hiking, biking and snowmobile trails. If you are looking for a spot nestled in the woods for your family or just with friends, this is it! You feel like you've really gotten away from it all being surrounded by the trees in our quiet neighborhood. It is a spacious home with an updated kitchen, idealistic gas fireplace and large living and dining area – perfect for families or a group of friends looking to unwind in beautiful North Lake Tahoe.

Whether you are headed up to ski or to hike or just to enjoy all that Lake Tahoe has to offer, our home has all that you need. We are so close to all the hustle and bustle of the lake and even the Village at Northstar but know that when you come back to your home away from home all you will experience is that quiet of the wind blowing through the trees, the birds chirping and the chipmunks and squirrels chasing each other.

Check in time is at 4pm and check out at noon, if no other reservation is directly before or after yours I am almost always able to extend those times at no cost.

The three bedrooms can easily sleep six, four adults and two kids in the twin bunk beds (bunks not meant for anyone over 60 pounds). There is also a queen-sized pull out sofa in the loft area that sleeps an additional two. There are two full-sized bathrooms.


Entertainment features include a gas BBQ located off the side of the house that is covered for use all year round. Also included is a TV and BlueRay player with Netflix (NO CABLE OR SATELLITE LOCAL OR PREMIUM TV CHANNELS) as well as an assortment of BlueRay discs and board games to choose from. Because we are back in nature the cellular service is spotty at best. We offer free wifi and you can enable wifi calling on your cell phone or text the home number to someone you need to speak with and they can call in (just no outgoing long distance calls). It's a nice way to unplug (as much as possible) and get away from it all. Enjoy!

About Cara Battino

Growing up in the Bay Area we have spent countless summers and winters up in Lake Tahoe. It was always a dream of ours to own a place up there so we could enjoy it as much as possible ourselves and to be able to share it with family, friends...and YOU!

Cara Battino purchased this house in 2012

Why Cara Battino chose Tahoe Vista

We knew we wanted to be in North Shore but the question was where. After looking at multiple homes in Kings Beach, Carnelian Bay and Tahoe Vista we came across this house and knew we had found 'the one'. The location of this house is perfect, close enough to several ski resorts and beaches and all the hiking trails you could want. Plus all the essentials are a quick drive down the highway. But the neighborhood is just peaceful, we really feel like we get away from the hustle and bustle of the Bay Area when we come up.

What makes this house unique

Having a home nestled right in the Tahoe National Forest is just a dream. We are surrounded by trails that wind through the trees, a beautiful scene both in the summer and in the snow-covered winter.

Cozy Cabin

  • 4 of 5

Great location. Close to Kings Beach, Northstar & Truckee. Safeway 5 minutes away. We had a family of 6 adults, 1 infant & our dog and there was plenty of room. House was clean, nice size kitchen/eating area/living room, beds comfortable. We brought an aero bed & used in the bedroom with the bunk beds. There was plenty of room and worked out great. Owners responded quickly to questions. Great place to stay and would stay here again.

Perfect Tahoe getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great location and excellent house. Our family of four plus our dog really enjoyed the house. Very convenient to the lake, Kings beach and North Star resort. Maybe 15 minutes to Tahoe city. But house felt secluded and private at same time. Loved that it backed up to open woods. Bedrooms well appointed and kitchen had everything you’d need to cook whatever meals you’d want. Cara was quick to respond and the list of nearby hikes was a great bonus. We’d definitely book this house again on our next trip to Lake Tahoe.

Family Fun Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year staying at Cara’s place for a family get together. The snow didn’t cooperate as it did the last two years but there was still enough for the little ones to get some sliding in. We also took in some ice skating at the Truckee Park & Rec rink not far away. This place is perfectly located to Safeway and lots of good restaurants in both Kings Beach and Truckee. Cara is quick to respond and is very flexible. Hope to back soon.
