Welcome to Edward's Rustic Cottage, a classic Tahoe cabin located in a prime location along the west shore of Lake Tahoe and just a 5 minute walk to the lake, Sunnyside beach and marina with its indoor/outdoor dining and bar, cafe’s and country store. This rustic cabin is set back from the road in a peaceful and private setting among the pines.

The newly remodeled kitchen, bathroom and master bedroom features fine craftsmanship throughout. The Edward’s cottage has 2 bedroom and 2 full baths. The master bedroom has one queen bed and 3/4 bath and the second guest bedroom also has one queen bed. There is a second full bath with a newly tiled tub/shower.

The cabin and grounds /property around the place were in disarray.

  • 2 of 5

We loved the Sunnyside area and will return again for sure. The Sunnyside Bar and grill, Fire Side cafe, and access to the West side of Lake Tahoe were top notch. The cabin was walking distance to all of this which is why we chose the destination. The cabin was rough!

Missing screens on windows, broken handle on microwave, toilets loosely bolted down and moveable. The yard was full of slash from the trees and barely usable. There were piles of debris throughout the property which was unkept. The outside of the cabin was in disarray with loose boards and pealing paint.

We looked throughout VRBO for incidentals in the area and found many rentals either cheaper or comparable in the same proximity to amenities. We will return to Sunnyside.... just not to this rental.

Exactly what we expected

  • 5 of 5

Lots of snow the days we were there. We dug out the trail to the front door, made it and had a wonderful time and really enjoyed our stay.

Sweet Tahoe Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four, with 2 small kids plus a dog and had a blast in Brian's cabin. Brian is a great host, very responsive and accommodating. The cabin itself is rustic with lots of charm and character. While rustic, it's very comfortable, with remodeled and fully stocked kitchen, new shower fixtures and comfy furniture & linens. The heaters kept the cabin plenty warm and cozy. The location is fantastic, within a 15-20 minute drive to 3 ski resorts and a 5 minute walk to the lake. Overall it was a great experience and we would love to come back.

Healing and Just So Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Walking inside this cabin, you just feel the comfort come over you. We were here for 4 days and we both left feeling like different people. Very close to town but tucked away to feel peace and quiet. Just minutes to the beach, and we rode our bikes everywhere. There's WiFi if you need it, outdoor fun, a nice stereo for music while you're cooking, games, blankets for outside, and just about every amenity you could want. Brian and Melissa were delightful! Everything was very easy from start to finish. Thank you again'

Needs quite a bit of work

  • 2 of 5

Although most of the inside was ok, the outside was a complete shamble and I had to clean the house when I got there. Extension cords to plug things in where not routed around windows, instead they hung right in front or across them, there were webs everywhere, I had to clean every window inside and out. The owner said that cleaning service was included, in my opinion he needs to find a new service.

Some of the inside has been remodeled, and I will say that the guest bathroom shower is wonderful, but the master is so small we didn't even use it.

On the outside, the siding is in terrible shape, I was embarrassed when we pulled up with our out of the country guest. The vents leading to under the house where all missing, and instead of replacing them, there where pillows or mattresses or a piece of wood shoved into them to prevent varmints from going under the house. There has clearly been a bear issue in the past as evidenced by the scratch marks on the laundry room door, however the house is not bear proofed in any way. there is a French door that while pretty during the day, should have some other heavier door to reinforce it at night. There was a bear on the porch on our last night, and my children where with us.

Lastly the beds were extremely uncomfortable, we didn't sleep well for the entire stay.

I would rent this house again because we simply tried not to be there during the day much, but only if it was my last/ only option.

Quiet and convenient getaway

  • 4 of 5

Darling rustic and classic Tahoe cabin! Quiet location for R&R, the convenience of Sunnyside area restaurants for local atmosphere and nightlife, while still close enough to Tahoe City and all the local West Shore ski resorts.
