About the property

Comfortable 2 bedroom/1 bathroom home in a clean and quiet setting

Imagine a long weekend away from the noise and bustle of the city. Settling in comfort in beautiful Lake Tahoe, glass of wine in hand, looking forward to a break filled with as much relaxation or activity as you could want. Nothing to spoil the magnificence of a vast starlit sky, or sound of traffic to intrude on the peace. Come and experience it all in beautiful Lake Tahoe.

Lake Tahoe is a peaceful and serene community and our home is an example of that. The master bedroom has a queen bed and bedroom #2 has a full and a twin bed. Portable crib and air mattress are also available. Fully equipped kiitchen with microwave, toaster, coffee maker, waffle iron, utensils, dishes, and glassware. The dining room seats 5. Back yard is spacious for a relaxing summer bbq.

A large living room window looks out to the back yard and lets in lots of light on those long summer days and crisp winter mornings. We have a large screen TV, Roku streaming player, DVD player, and a large selection of movies.

We are conveniently located near the 'Y' and less than two miles from the lake, five miles from Heavenly Valley, close to a multitude of hiking and biking trails, shopping, nightlife, and restaurants, just to name a few of the activities in this Sierra gem!

Cozy cabin-close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed everything about our stay at the cabin. Everything was exactly as it was listed in the description. Nothing fancy or big, but the decor was cute and the cabin very cozy. It was perfect for the 4 of us. We found the cabin easily and the walk was shoveled and the heat was on when we arrived during the snow storm. It was a short drive to the main highway where grocery stores, gas and restaurants could be found. We enjoyed dinner at Primo's Italian Restaurant and going to the movies at Heavenly Village. Downhill skiing was less than a 1/2 hour drive to Sierra at Tahoe and cross country skiing at Camp Richardson was only a 10 minute drive from the cabin. Communication with Linda was very easy and she was prompt in responding to my emails. We would definitely like to return for another stay!

Great vacation or holiday getaway place

  • 5 of 5

This little cozy house located very conveniently in quiet cider wood community. It will take you away from busy city streets, every day noises and rush of the big city. It is located only about 1 mile away from Lake Tahoe shore. You practically walk to the lake. The house has 2 bedrooms with very comfy beds, small backyard with wonderful outdoor furniture set, where you can relax and have great time, fully fenced from outside world. There is a parking for at least 2 cars. The kitchen is fully equipped for any occasion.

All stores, restaurants and entertainment only short drive away. Evan's American Gourmet Cafe only one block away, you can walk there, and the food, and the service are superb.

Linda - the owner of the house is great lady. She answered all my question and helped by providing a lot of useful information about location surrounding the place.

My wife and I had great time in this little jewel by the lake.

A great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Cute and comfy. Great little cabin in a fantastic neighborhood. Super bright and sunny, which is hard to find in Tahoe. Took 3 minutes to drive to the beach, grocery store & restaurants. Linda is great to deal with. Had a great time.

Second vacation in two years in this great house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two of our vacations these past two years, and had a great and relaxing time during both, thanks in large part to this house. The house is very comfortable and convenient and we loved the recent improvements such as the paving in the driveway. We love the forest like setting and location among other things, and will likely return again.

Clean, Quiet, Cozy

  • 5 of 5

I selected this property for the location, which is convenient to beaches, stores, and restaurants; and I'm so glad I found it. The setting is lovely--nestled away from the road among the trees and in a neighborhood of well-tended cabins/homes. The interior is very clean and cozy. So many cabins smell like old furniture or burnt wood, but not this one. There was also no animal odor, even though it's a dog-friendly cabin. The furniture is comfortable, and the carpet was so soft it was like wearing slippers. The backyard is completely fenced and is very safe for small children and dogs. The owner was easy to contact, and my deposit was returned within 24 hours of my stay. I definitely recommend this property and will book again for future trips to Lake Tahoe.

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from staying here from 7-5-2016 through 7-12-2016. This is a wonderful home in South Lake Tahoe near the Y. We reserved the property many months ago and found communicating with the owner was very easy. Everything went just as explained--from arrival, through our stay, and checking out. I highly recommend working with this owner.

The property is comfortable 2 bedroom, 1 bath home as described. It is very comfortable as it feels like you are staying at a friends home. My wife and I have four children ages 10, 6, 4, and 2. We loved this property as it was very child friendly. Everything was nice and clean on the inside, but there were not a bunch of fragile items that we feared would be broken by the children. The TV is set up and linked with Netflix, Hulu, along with a number of DVD's. We didn't need cable, but everything was there for us to have a few movie nights with the kids after long days of hiking with the family.

I absolutely love this location. The home is situated away from the crowds of the big tourist areas. From this home you can easily walk to the grocery store about a mile in one direction or to Pope Beach and Fallen Leaf Lake in the other direction. This is a wonderful location.

I highly recommend this property and look forward to returning as soon as we are able!
