About the property

2 bd, 2 bth, large loft, full kitchen, w/d, centrally located in quiet court

The Metro Cabin has a true 'cabin feel' that you don't find very often. The cabin has 2 private bedrooms, a large loft with 4 twin beds, 2 full bathrooms, a full service kitchen, family room with comfortable seating, and a large front deck. Our cabin sleeps up to 4 adults and 4 teens/children comfortably, which is the perfect setting for 2 families or a group of friends. The cabin is cleaned prior to your stay to ensure maximum comfort.

We are located 1 mile from the beautiful lake and 3 miles from Heavenly valley ski resort and casinos! There are many sledding and snow play areas only a short drive away. Other nearby attractions include: Emerald Bay, the shops at Heavenly Village, Zephyr Cove, Camp Richardson and the Beacon Restaurant (home of the famous Rum Runner drink) and so much more. We recommend checking out the boating and cruising tours to enjoy the beauty of the Lake.

In addition, there are many taverns and restaurants within walking distance. There are great biking and walking trails which start less than two blocks away.

Our cabin offers a large common area in the rear of the cabin which is perfect for children to play in the snow or in the warmth of the summer sun.

Parking includes one assigned space located within feet of the cabin and a guest parking spot (on a first come first serve basis). Unlimited WiFi in cabin and basic cable provided. Television upstairs with DVD player for children. HDTV downstairs for family entertainment. Gas fireplace to add ambiance to your vacation.

Outside noise is not allowed between the hours of 9:00 pm and 8:00 am. Remember, you are visiting an area surrounded by the forest. In the forest we have hungry bears; bears view trash as an opportunity to eat. If garbage bags are left outside, or food is left inside of a vehicle, a bear will be encouraged to come into the neighborhood and eat the food. Bears are very strong and will tear open trash bags and go through car windows with food left in the cars. STORE all trash tightly; leave no trash or food in the car and do not leave trash bags outside the vacation home rental when you leave. Visitors must adhere to the maximum number of occupants of 8 persons when rented. Occupancy cannot exceed the maximum number allowed, at any time. Weddings and parties are not allowed at any time on the property. If the City of South Lake Tahoe or Local Police Department is contacted with noise, parking, occupancy or trash complaints, guests will be required to vacate immediately and may be subject to fines that range from $250-$2,000.

Note: Snowplowing in winter is provided by our homeowner's association, so access to the cabin is not a problem.

About Tammy Metrovich

We are the parents of four children and purchased this vacation cabin in August 2014. We live in the Valley but enjoy the fresh air and the beautiful Tahoe Lake. We have been avid campers and decided that it was time to find something connected to the ground! When we entered this cabin we knew it was for us. Our children love being upstairs putting a puzzle together, playing video games or just relaxing on one of the four twin beds. As adults we enjoy the serenity of the mountains and going for walks among the pines. Hiking is a new passion of ours and there are so many trails in the area; both easy and hard which lead you to spectacular views of the Tahoe area and Lake Tahoe.

Why Tammy Metrovich chose South Lake Tahoe

We rented a cabin in the Highland Woods area during the summer. We rode our bikes to Camp Richardson which was one of our favorite camp spots. We also rode our bikes to dinner the previous night. We enjoyed the fact that from this area we could go and do almost anything in South Lake Tahoe within 10 minutes driving or a short bike ride; the casinos, see a movie, hit the slopes or head to the lake. We decided to look for a property and were blessed when we found this one. We knew when we walked in that it would be a great place to spend our vacations.

What makes this cabin unique

The Metro Cabin is centrally located. You can ride your bike to the lake, enjoy the peaceful and quiet neighborhood as well as enjoy the fresh air that the 5,000 elevation provides. Our cabin is small enough for a couple and large enough for a family of 4 or 6. The unique cabin feeling leaves you longing for the outdoors and enjoying the qualities of home. The tranquil area is perfect for anyone looking to spend a weekend or a week in South Lake Tahoe.

This cabin is clean, homey and Tammy has thought of everything you might need.

We had a wonderful vacation due in large part to staying at this fabulous house.

We will definitely be back to Lake Tahoe and when we do we will stay at Tammy's place!!

Thank you for a wonderful stay in your cabin. We found everything in our accommodations that we needed and more! The inside was wonderfully equipped, clean and decorated and we thoroughly enjoyed the time we were there. The cabin was exactly what was shown on the webpage. We enjoyed the cabin and experience tremendously. We were made to feel at home the moment we stepped in. We were so sad to leave. Thanks again for a most relaxing stay!

Couldn't have asked for a better vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

(I apologize that it has taken me so long to write this review!! )

The cabin is "eat off the floor" clean, cozy- yet spacious enough for our 3 teenagers, and well equipped with all the comforts of home. Clearly, Tammy has put a lot of thought into the set up of the cabin and the comforts of her guests; a well equipped kitchen, plenty of blankets and towels, a stocked laundry room... we seriously did not have a need for anything- right down to the spare boots in the hall when we had unexpected snow! There is even an information binder- that not only tells you about the cabin, but a lot about the surrounding area's "things to do and see".

The neighborhood is quiet, neighbors are friendly and we were close to the casino's, great restaurants and a quick drive to the resorts for skiing, snowboarding and sledding.

The front deck is spacious- and had the weather been right for us, it would have been perfect for a BBQ. We definitely hope to get back to enjoy some summer time in Tahoe, but we definitely will be returning to play in the snow!

Easter Break Relaxation :)

  • 5 of 5

We had the best Easter weekend ever. The cabin was just perfect very clean had everything we needed. Having teenage boys to entertain it was very accommodating from movies, board games, & disc they used out in the snow. The cabin was close to restaurants and the casino's for adult time. What was impressive about the cabin was it just felt like home very comfortable, very clean & the owner was available when I needed them!!! Can't wait to book it again!!!

Relaxing weekend at the cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time! The cabin was very clean and equipped with everything we needed. Plenty of space to accommodate everyone and lots of entertainment! There were different board games available as well as entertainment through DVD's. The cabin is walking distance from a few restaurants and a quick drive up to downtown area and the casinos, perfect location. We stayed "in" the majority of the time and felt right at home. We will definitely stay here again! :)
