Our charming mountain decorated cabin is just right for that perfect Tahoe getaway. Close to great hiking trails, state parks, Homewood Ski area, the lake and boat ramps, great food, and wonderful beaches. Emerald Bay is 9.1 miles away, Tahoe City 9 miles, and South Lake Tahoe/Stateline is 21 miles away on a beautifully scenic highway. Reno is 55 miles away. Designed with original knotty pine left intact since the 1940’s, relax by the rustic gas stove in quiet surroundings. Kids love the lodge pole ladder to the sleeping loft which can sleep two easily on a comfy futon. One antique brass double bed with memory foam topper and 1 bunk bed complete the sleeping arrangements. El Dorado County Transient Occupancy Registration Permit Number #2017.

About Laurie LeTellier/Doug Jackley
Doug and I have opened up The Little Red Cabin to the VRBO/ Home Away family. We live in the Bay Area and hope you will enjoy our 1940's cabin. We have continued to keep it up yet maintain it's rustic appeal.
Laurie LeTellier/Doug Jackley purchased this Cabin in 1992
Why Laurie LeTellier/Doug Jackley chose Tahoma
Doug and I love to travel but for downtime, nothing is more comfortable than sitting on the cabin deck reading a book listening to the wind blow through the pines. Add a snooze in the hammock, a game of horseshoes, a trip to the beach or a mountain hike...it doesn't get any better! Family game nights are treasured but there are DVDs available for movie night as well.
What makes this Cabin unique
Quiet neighborhood, proximity to the lake, Emerald Bay, Tahoe City, great hikes, and great places to eat.

Great location & Adorable
The cabin was adorable! All the comforts of home. The only suggestion is get wireless!
Thank you for the review and suggestion Carin. Wireless ans direct TV coming soon.
Perfect little cabin. We thoroughly enjoyed it.
Close to many attractions. Clean and Quiet. Perfect for our visits in and around Lake Tahoe. Very comfortable and easily accessible.
Thanks for thre review Steve! We work very hard to keep comfortable and cozy.
"cute and cozy" is right on the mark
We hated to leave Tahoe, and the Red Cabin... Had a perfect stay; beds are good, kitchen well appointed as we love to cook(open windows for ventilation but remember to close/lock after!).Enough seating area for 4+ (unless your young adult covers most of them with "stuff" ;).....All beds are in one room (plus one up loft ladder if able/nimble) so must be a close fam/friends. ATT phone signal was easily enough+ to tether/run netflix on our computer, so we didn't miss wifi, didn't even try to hook up the TV. However, with CDs provided and the nearby market stocked as well, one would not miss any movie one wanted if no Netflix account! Walking to Sugar Pine Pt is a luxury, bikes would get you anywhere else you wanted except maybe some hiking trailheads. Granite lake hike is CLEAR (no snow to manage)(didn't check all the way up to Maggie's peak), lake level high (ok a little cold but we did get in 3-4 times). Bathroom is nice and large; only "beware" is the ledge for the stove...at night can get your big toe jammed - we put a pillow at the corner to avoid stubbing our toes. Since our prior visit, they have nicely added things for if you forget yours - coffee, lotion, shampoo, salt/pepper etc also. Another plus were two nice neighbors either side...
We WILL be back to enjoy... thanks so much Laurie and Doug!
Thank you so much for the wonderful review Carol!
We do intend this summer to add WiFi service and possibly direct TV with a roku for guests. I’ll look into the stove ledge for toe protection. Would love to have you back.

The Perfect Tahoe Cabin
It is indeed a "cute and cozy cabin". It is exactly what a lake cabin should be. It was clean and beautifully decorated. It felt like home. The neighborhood was quiet and easy to find. I highly recommend this rental.
Winter Tahoma getaway
This adorable cabin feels like you stepped into a Scandinavian winter hide-a-way. To be clear, it’s fairly rustic, though clearly well loved. Most creature comforts are provided for, though some details are certainly not updated to modern standards- for example the windows are shuttered in winter, which means you can't enjoy the beautiful scenery outside. Pretty kid friendly, though I wouldn’t call it child-proofed. We had to be very attentive that our two year old didn't touch the gas stove. Lots to do packed into a little space and our son was very happy exploring inside and outside. The loft is really only accessible to the most agile (and slender) people - it didn't work for my 7-months pregnant belly and it was not safe for our toddler. To clarify the listing, the only heater is the gas stove and it does not have a working washing machine.
Thank you for the review and your comments. I will edit/update the listing to make it more clear for safety and understanding. We’re always trying to improve ourselves and your honest opinion is very helpful.

Perfect cozy yet spacious home away from home!
We've stayed in many different vacation rentals in this area of Lake Tahoe and this little home proved to be one of our all time favorites. It was perfect for our little family (two adults and one child). Cozy without being claustrophobic. The home was so easy to get and keep warm - essential after playing in the snow and drying boots etc. It was perfectly prepared for us. Clean, warm and well-stocked. Our little guy loved looking through the kids' toys and books. We hope to return as soon as we can! Thank you :)
Thank you for the review Hannah. It’s always wonderful to hear all of your family enjoyed the Cabin and had a great experience. We look forward to having you stay with us again!

The Little Red Cabin is in an ideal location. Close to Tahoe City, Emerald Bay, and within walking distance of the lake. Great beaches, and wonderful restaurants are but only a short drive away.
