Tahoe has been the place of countless many family gatherings. We are happy to share the beauty of Tahoe with our guests.

ERIN MYERS purchased this cottage in 1989

Why ERIN MYERS chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

Originally, in the early 1920's the main house was a loggers boarding home and the cottage was the manager's home.

very disappointing

Sorry Erin,

I was so disappointed when i walked into your cabin.

There is so much deferred maintenance there. Carpets were full of black stains, door screens hanging by a thread,slider did not lock, many, many other problems.

Needs an upstairs window covering as main road is so close to the property, anybody can see in.

The very next day I went out looking for another place to stay. Because I prepaid for 4 nights, I stuck it out.

I am returning to the Lake, but would not stay at your cabin again. You were so nice on the phone that i didn't want to complain.

Owner's Response: This is a huge disappointment, and I wish you had called me rather than "stick it out." We had a great rapport, I gave you a discount, and your BBQ request was fixed within the hour. The house is not 100% perfect, but what vacation rental is? I wish people treated a vacation rental well, but in reality it's often the opposite. The carpets are cleaned every 6 months, so stains, yes, but dirty, no. We've been doing work little by little as budgets and guest stays allow. The couches are brand new as well as other furnishings, and the dryer is brand new. The window coverings are on order because we just repainted the room I had no idea the sliding door doesn't lock or perhaps could it be user error? Letting me know of things that need attention is one thing, but lack of understanding and nit-picking doesn't seem fair. I have repeat guests that come year after year, and never have I had such harsh reviews. However we had great communication and I would have remedied the situation before it became hurtful. I believe the right thing to do would be to amend your review, but that is in your hands. I am sorry that you had such a horrible time and even more sorry you didn't give the chance to fix that.

Great Lake Views!

  • 3 of 5

Vintage Tahoe cabin nestled in the woods right on the water. The highlights for this cabin include the wrap around deck and the sweeping views of the lake from the spacious living room. Located in Carnelian Bay right along North Lake Blvd, we found it easy to take the 89 to go skiing at Alpine or take the 267 to go to Truckee. The cabin is not marked from the street, so it can be a little tricky to find: we recommend you try to find it in the daylight rather than late at night if possible.
