Why the Owner Chose Christmas Valley, South Lake Tahoe, CA, USA:
We chose this house for the location! Quiet neighborhood,, away from the crowds. But minutes from all the activities that visitors come here for, and that South Lake Tahoe has to offer. About 20 minutes from downtown South Lake Tahoe. Grocery shopping 5 minutes from the cabin. This is ideally a perfect couples getaway close to many outdoor activities. Very popular in summer for hiking and biking enthusiasts because of the back country roads and trail access. Perfect location for the Death Ride. About 15 minutes to Echo Lake.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Quiet forested cabin in residential neighborhood featuring wild life, the Truckee river, convenient access to the back country hiking, cross country skiing, biking trails, and lakes.
