About the property

Four Bedroom, Beautifully Furnished Family Get Away

This cabin has everything to get away from it all, including no television or cell phone (Internet available for a fee). It's a luxuriously furnished getaway. It sits on a 5 acre meadow reaching directly to the private swim dock and beach on fallen leaf lake.

The lake is an exquisite national treasure. It's 5 miles from the nearest public highway, surrounded by mountains and forests. You'll be in the wilderness. The cabin is within a few hundred yards of a general store and marina, with enough amenities that you'll not need to venture out. You can swim, water ski, fly fish, trap crawdads, play capture the flag in the meadow or just sit on the terrace and relax. You'll be a short 5 minute walk from the trailhead for the desolation national wilderness area and access to the pacific crest trail from mexico to canada across the top of the sierra nevada mountains. You can do local nature walks or the most vigorous hiking and climbing to hundreds of lakes, steams and falls. You'll not be disturbed.

Or you can venture back down the road to the casinos, restaurants and social life of south lake tahoe.

The cabin is fully equipped for family or adult adventure.

A Sublime Retreat In The Wilderness And Right On The Lake

Perfect Sierra Adventure

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased to share this cozy, yet spacious property with our family of seven. The

Fallen Leaf Lake home was elegantly rustic and perfectly appointed. Each family member individually expressed enthusiasm for the beautiful, serene setting and inviting, comfortable home. The outdoor mountain setting was breathtaking!

We visited the lake in fall, with crisp nights and sparkling sunny days. What a treat to discover this delightful mountain retreat. The generosity and graciousness of our hosts has been greatly appreciated. We strongly recommend this vacation rental to others and are anxious to return again ourselves.

Relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

Fallen Leaf Lake is a special place that offers all the beauty of nearby Lake Tahoe but with peace and privacy that are hard to come by. And this house only enhances ones experience of nature that is right outside your door. The view of the lake from the spacious patio is unobstructed. And inside you are greeted by a beautiful and accommodating kitchen, an open and inviting Great Room, and comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms. This house truly is everything one could ask for from a lakeside retreat.

A hidden jewel

  • 5 of 5

We were looking to stay at Tahoe keys and this property popped up. So we looked at a map and relized that this was what we were really looking for. The home was absolutely amazing. Waking up ever morning to a view of the lake from our bed, short walk to the general store for a news paper and then enjoy the paper while drinking coffee on the deck. When our family arrived they each had a master suite with a private bath. Out on our kayaks everyday, water was like glass. Playing in the water from our private dock was great. Fished with our grandson in the morning then walked to the marina in the afternoon for ice cream. Perfect!! Hiked over to a waterfall and another small lake. Our goal was not to get back in the car until we went home. We were successful. While having breakfast on the last day our family voted to make Fallen Leaf lake our annual family trip for many more wonderful memories.

A Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our first (but not last) stay here. The lake is crystal clear, the scenery is breathtaking, the smell of the pines, amazing. "Sublime" is the perfect adjective for the cabin and the location. Completely cozy, but very, very tasteful and almost elegant, the house feels nothing like a "rental". We were 6 adults and 3 under 8 and there was plenty of space. We're all cooks so we really appreciated the well stocked kitchen. I don't think there was any time that at least one of us wasn't lounging on the deck. That double chaise is heaven. Having the marina store so close was a nice addition. It was fun to walk up there for an ice cream or a paper or even lunch. We didn't explore as much as we thought we would. No one wanted to leave! Really perfect.

Wonderful stay at Fallen Leaf Lake!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this lovely house at beautiful Fallen Leaf Lake! The house was perfectly clean and well appointed with everything one needs to feel at home. The beds are very comfortable and the living space is great for a family with young or adult children. Shand and Bill Green are very helpful and nice. They also own the house next door and it was nice to meet them personally. Fallen Leaf Lake is a wonderful place to go hiking, biking, or boating. The water in the lake is cold, but very refreshing when it is hot. The view from the house is wonderful. It is a great "get away from it all" place. There is no TV or internet access, so my husband was able to really "unplug" and relax. A rare treat for us both! You can also drive out to Lake Tahoe and enjoy the restaurants and casinos on the South Shore, but we preferred to settle in to the Green's comfortable house and enjoy the natural setting.
