About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms

You won't want to leave this charming and quaint 'Old-Tahoe' style cabin on its own wooded ridge-top lot surrounded by USFS open space. Featuring an updated rustic décor in a cozy living/dining area and small, yet well-equipped, kitchen. Also downstairs is one private bedroom with a fantastic lake and night-sky view and a bathroom with shower. Upstairs are two large bedrooms, one with a queen bed plus bunk bed, the other a dorm concept with 3 queen beds. You'll love the feeling of showering outdoors in the upstairs bath with views of the bay!

Relax and enjoy the knotty pine interior around the large river-rock fireplace. Lounge in the sun or unwind with cocktails on two spacious decks, one overlooking Meeks Bay and the other with a view of south shore. The sandy white beaches, boat launch and marina at Meeks Bay are just down the hill, as is the trail-head to the Desolation Wilderness plus many other outstanding hiking and biking trails are just a short drive. Close to restaurants and shopping, as well as easy access to Homewood, Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley and many more favorite ski areas!

This original Tahoe cabin has all the comforts for the perfect vacation experience! It is the ultimate cozy home-away-from-home for one or two families.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1974

About the owner: Welcome to our little slice of paradise on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe at Meeks Bay! We have many family memories at this cabin. We were a family of 7 who became 25, and all still enjoy spending time at this wonderful place we call paradise!

Why the Owner Chose Meeks Bay, CA, USA:
We bought the cabin after camping at Meeks Bay Resort for several summers. The large private lot with a personal view of Meeks Bay sucked us in and continues to bring us back every year.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The location in the summer is perfect as you can sit on the deck and feel like you are far away from it all, yet there is so much to do nearby if you want to be more active: A fun, social beach. A bike ride along the lake. Lots of restaurants to choose from along the West Shore or in Tahoe City/Truckee and South Shore just minutes away. More hikes than you can fit in. Shopping and strolling around Tahoe City. Floating down the Truckee River. Sledding, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing in the winter. Boating, swimming, water skiing, wake boarding, kayaking and more in the summer. Late-spring and early-fall offer their own, more tranquil, pace with virtually no crowds anywhere.
