About the property

A true home away from home in beautiful, fun, and restorative South Lake Tahoe

Peaceful center.

Welcome to a home away from home with character, beamed ceilings and a cook's kitchen. Enjoy the outdoor opportunities offered in the Lake Tahoe region and come back to a home warmed by a cozy fireplace. Channel your inner culinary talents in our stocked kitchen. Concoct your dream meals or select from the many nearby restaurants for take out or exploration! Pop in a movie or a Play Station game in the warm living room. If you are traveling with a group, retreat to the bedroom and lounge on our Paul Bunyon log bed. It will surely transport you to the forest. Relax to your favorite music or get your groove on with our iHome.

Our home is appointed for a couple, two couples, or a small family.

It is also poochie-approved with a completely fenced in huge back yard. We have two basic lawn/beach chairs with drink holders, and even a Chuck-it.

If you are traveling with infants/toddlers, we assure you that we've equipped the home with some necessary related amenities. Please consult us prior to packing!

Relax in the outdoor hot tub... release your stress and enjoy the fresh air.

It's a great little spot, centrally located. 1.5 miles to casinos, 0.4 miles to the lake, and under a mile to Heavenly.

If you know which famous personality references our home's address, we may be willing to work out a discount. Cleaning fee will be waived for stays over 7 nights. If you recommend a confirmed booking, we will offer you a discount on your next stay.

About Lindsey J F Thompson

We are proud to share our home away from home with you! As natives of Toulomne County (CA) and Buzzards Bay (MA), we are water and snow lovers. We've spent our free time in the South Lake Tahoe area for over 20 years and recently got married there as well. We like to run, play fetch with our pooches, drink delicious beer, and cook healthy tasty meals. We love Steamers!

Lindsey J F Thompson purchased this house in 2014

pictures can be deceiving

  • 1 of 5

This place looks great in the pictures, but was extremely disappointing. There is absolutely no closet space because all the closets are stuffed with furniture and misc. junk. There is no place to open a suitcase. There are no dressers. The inside is papered with all kinds of notices of how you can get fined even if you track in dirt... this is a very real possibility since the front and backyard are merely dirt and weeds. You are greeted at the front door by 2 large garbage pails. The bed is soft and squeaky and the bed covering is lumpy. There are no premium channels on the TV- not even CNN. This place needs a complete makeover because it is well-located.

Absolutely wonderful and within walking distance to shops and restaurants

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect little cabin. Great location and well stocked. We made use of the grill and got to walk to the lake almost every day. Our toddler and dogs loved the week we spent here as well. Thanks for offering such a great place!

Clean and cozy cabin in great location

  • 5 of 5

My family of four stayed here for three nights over the Thanksgiving holiday. The cabin was clean, well stocked, recently updated, and great for our two young children ages 2 and 4. We liked the location which was near restaurants and Heavenly. The backyard was a big plus for our kids and dog to safely play in the snow. We will definitely consider staying here again when we return to Tahoe.

Such a lovely place, we didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I absolutely loved staying here. It was our first trip away together and we loved how cozy and inviting the cabin was, and the owners are very helpful if you need anything. We could walk pretty much anywhere if we wanted to, and after a day of hiking or exploring we got to relax in the hot tub. Perfect trip!

Great cozy place right next to South Lake. The beach is walking distance and so are the casinos. The place is very clean and has amazing services.
