Great property, easy access and dog friendly

  • 4 of 5

Great location, close to food and a dog friendly beach at Gar Woods, only a few minutes away. Had some difficulty with the french doors, getting them to lock, but it was not necessary to keep them open as we got a terrific breeze with the windows and front door open. Easy parking for 2 cars in driveway. Comfortable furniture and well equipped kitchen.

Cozy and Bright Cabin

  • 4 of 5

The open concept and large windows give this cabin a cozy and bright feeling. Although the couch is a bit dated, the kitchen and bathrooms have been renovated with quality materials. The upstairs bedroom is quite large and has a king-sized bed. The quiet neighborhood is walking distance to beach and Old Post Office restaurant.

  • 5 of 5

Just right if you are a no frills person. It is a sweet little cabin and we enjoyed sitting on the deck at night playing cards! Horse shoes too even though I am terrible at it! The owner is a sweet heart! Thank you for a great weeks stay!

Great location in a quiet area of the lake, very nice cabin

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights in May 2017. It was definitely in between seasons, but we had a great time. The cabin seemed to be situated in a quieter community but there are restaurants nearby and plenty more within 10-15 minutes away. There is a nice Safeway grocery close by also. We were on the go most of the time we were there, so we really didn't take full advantage of the cabin and what it had to offer as far as eating in, grilling, etc. We basically slept there. But the cabin was very nice, clean, and had everything we needed. The deck is awesome. We found the cabin to be very comfortable and homey and we would definitely stay there again if we get back to Lake Tahoe area. I like the quieter location, although it may not be that way at all during the summer.

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

House was very comfortable and cozy. Clean and well organized. Owner very easy to work with. Great deck to sit and enjoy the silence, even when cold outside. Kitchen/DR combo is good for having everyone enjoy conversation. Had a great time. Thank you.
