About Michael Smith

My family and I live in Los Altos, California. My wife, of 22 years, and I have 3 children and we love the Tahoe City area. I am a Bay area native having been born in San Francisco and raised in Montara, California, near Half Moon Bay. We have been enjoying the Lake Tahoe region for over 30 years. Our goal is to raise our children with the same excitement and appreciation that we had for Lake Tahoe.

Michael Smith purchased this house in 2004

Why Michael Smith chose Tahoe City

We simply love Tahoe, the people, the year-round activities and how it makes us feel when we are there. Having grown up going to my Father's place in Tavern Shores in Tahoe City, we could not even think of choosing a better place to share our joy of Tahoe with our children. When he sold his place in the summer of 2004, it left a void in our summer and winter trips to Tahoe. When we came across our home on Pioneer Way, with its close proximity to town, the lake, the golf course, the skiing, we felt we had found our ideal home away from home.

What makes this house unique

Literally, you are a block from town and the lake. Guests who stay at our home report simply parking their car the day they arrive and never needing to use it again. The interior is furnished comfortably and with some of finest linens. All of the furniture is newer and we have included every possible needed kitchen item you could imagine. The wood-stove is ideal in both Winter in Summer to help heat up the house. We include all of the firewood for your use. The hot tub on the back porch has found us in it for hours during the winter and Summer months. The views from it are of the city, the lake and the mountains around the cabin. Finally, the back yard is enclosed, landscaped and grassed. Perfect for sun-bathing, sprinklers for the kids, or a mean badminton game. Enjoy!

Charming Tahoe City Cabin with Hot Tub in Town!

Charming cabin with a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This place is the perfect Tahoe city get away. It’s right across the street from the dock and the entrance to Commons beach as well as walking distance to brunch at Rosies. The kitchen is updated and well-suited to cook and serve large meals. The beds were comfortable and the hot tub felt amazing after a long day of snowboarding. Would definitely rent again!

Great place! Fun for my two boys and I for a weekend on the slopes at Squaw.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is right off the main street of downtown Tahoe City. 10 mins to Squaw. My 15 and 13 yr old boys loved the hot tub, bumper pool table, and "retro" Nintendo game system! Lol. The kitchen is great for when we ate in.

Great stay in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

A great little house that was perfect for our family of 4 and dog (and could have easily slept 2 families with a few kids each). The owners couldn't have been easier to work with. The location was perfect--right around the corner from downtown Tahoe City but felt miles away in the woods. House is rustic but kitchen was new and all felt clean and very well kept. Nice little backyard for sitting and for the dog. Worked out perfectly for our 5 night stay.

Overall Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

The stay was great and we had a wonderful time. The hot tub was fun and the rest of the house was so cute, we loved it. The only negative we had was that there was no kindling provided for the fire and really nowhere to get it nearby. We ended up going to the supermarket and getting a fire starter log which worked fine but it would've been nice if it had been provided. Other than that we loved our stay and would do it again, thanks!

Great home for Tahoe getaway

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful little cabin with great layout to accommodate 3 couples and a baby. Could handle a few more folks than that without much trouble. Nice open living / dining / kitchen, plus fenced yard and hot tub made it ideal for our group. We loved that we were a short walk from a nice trailhead for snowshoeing / cross-country skiing, and equally short distance to restaurants and stores of Tahoe City. Highly Recommended.
