What makes this house unique

This home was built by hand by the owners. Every beam was cut by the owner in SoCal, numbered (some numbers are still visible), and transported to Lake Tahoe by truck. Once there, the home was assembled on site. Once the home was complete, the owner began making all of the furniture and cabinetry. Some of the original furniture has been replaced, but we as a family have done our best to preserve the original furniture as Opa would have wanted.

Perfect Way to End Summer

  • 5 of 5

The house was better than I expected. The house was perfect in every way; fully loaded kitchen so I could cook, we got to use the barbecue, and even made use of the hot tub and private boat dock. There was plenty of space, and my stay was incredibly comfortable. I'm definitely coming back here again, with the hopes that I can stay longer next time!

Tahoe Keys Cabin....perfect for family outings

  • 3 of 5

Great place for a group of friends to enjoy. The "cabin" is showing her age and is a little tired.... Great locatation in the keys... bring your own bikes, kayaks and water toys as the cabin does not provide any water amenities...

Beautiful cabin/horrible neighbors

  • 3 of 5

The cabin and location are fantastic. Having the boat dock was a huge plus as we brought up 5 kayaks and used them all day every day to get to the lake. We fully enjoyed all the amenities, but the biggest downside is that this cabin is located in a home owners association and the neighbors are close by on all sides. Although the owner instructed that we must keep quiet after 10 pm, the neighbors called security on us at 5pm on our arrival date - we had only been there for a couple of hours! The security guard said that there is a huge resistance from the retired neighbors in the HOA not liking the vacation rental situation. Each day we were there the neighbors called security, and each day the security guard came out and was literally apologizing to us for the ridiculousness. Another group across the Marina from us were also getting called on by the neighbors. Apparently no street parking is allowed and no having a good time around a bunch of retired folks. One time a neighbor left a passive aggressive letter on one of the cars because the end of the car was slightly in front of his street side mailbox - and he also called security. If you want to have fun outside, in the hot tub, listen to music and laugh with your friends the neighbors will literally force you indoors every time, no matter the time of day - very annoying to have to deal with. We were not outrageous or louder than anyone, we were a mellow group of friends that the neighbors decided to pick on every day and it was ridiculous. Other than that factor, we loved the cabin only bummer is we ran out of toilet paper on the second day. There was only one roll ? Oh well, we still had fun despite the neighbors and made great memories.

Older house, but that gave it a true cabin feel, which we all enjoyed.

  • 5 of 5

Overall excellent. We had 8 adults and all had plenty of space to relax and sleep. The house is in good shape and well stocked with just about everything you'll need. Just add some food and some good memories!

Car: recommended

This large waterfront chalet style, mortise and tenon home in the Tahoe Keys has a pool table and it's own private hot tub on the lower deck. With it's own private boat dock, water access is as easy as walking out the back door. Stand up paddle board and kayak rentals are available nearby. Just drop in from your boat dock and paddle through the keys and out to the lake. Our kids regularly fish right off the boat dock.

The house is about ½ mile away from The Wilderness Bike Trail head. Bike rentals are available there. It's a great ride through the forest to Camp Richardson, where you can stop for some of the best ice cream around, get lunch, or have a day at the beach. Just passed Camp Richardson is the Taylor Creek Preserve. There they have guided nature hikes through some of the most beautiful untouched areas of South Lake Tahoe. As an added bonus, there's also Stream Cutout Profile Chamber where you can observe the local underwater wildlife in their habitat.

Tahoe Keys Property Owner's Association amenities include the use of 7 tennis courts, 2 pools and 2 hot tubs (indoor and outdoor).
