About the property

3 bedroom, 3 bath, + 4 twin beds in Loft

Come explore all the lakes and hiking trails around South Lake's Strawberry community!

Situated in the outdoors adventure packed area of Twin Bridges/Strawberry CA, this house is 25 minutes from South Lake Tahoe, 8 minutes from Sierra-at-Tahoe ski mountain, and single digit minutes form fishing/hiking/climbing/kayaking, you name it.

Fully rebuilt/remodeled in 2010. 3 bedrooms (queen beds in each). Open sleeping area in the loft (4 twins). A fold out sofa full bed in the great room. 3 full baths with beautiful natural stone- 2 have double showers and the master bath has a large soaking tub. The family room is very spacious for multiple families with a pellet stove for efficient heating, 50” flat screen 3D TV with Dish Tv, BluRay & DVD Player, XBox 360, Nintendo Wii U, and iPod docking for built-in home surround sound.

The entertaining kitchen has loads of natural stone counter space, stainless appliances, all cooking utensils and dishes are included. The dining table can expand for up to 12 guests. The house is tastefully decorated and reclaimed wood floors are through out the house adding a rustic mountain touch. Most of the furniture is new and in excellent condition creating a designer feel through out the house. The decor is tastefully done with a Pottery Barn feel throughout. There are board games, kids art supplies, DVD’s, BluRay movies, some 3D movies, 8 sets of 3D movie glasses, Satellite HD TV, books, kid toys, train table, and a Pack and Play crib.

Outside features include a granite landscaped backyard/patio, with wood burning stove, Gas BBQ, fire pit, and patio seating & lounging for 9. In summer relax in the hammock. Relax your tired body after a day of skiing or hiking in the 6 person log sauna house. And the large wrap-around driveway can easily accommodate 4 cars.

Don't want to leave your car out in the snow or sun? Then take advantage of the large garage with steps leading up into the home.

This house is conveniently located under 10 minutes to Sierra at Tahoe Ski Resort. There are loads of activities under 20 min from the cabin such as, walking the Pony Express Trail, Desolation wilderness, climbing at Lover’s Leap, fishing in the south fork of the American river, water activities at Echo, Wrights, Ice House, Union Valley Reservoir and Tahoe and endless hiking. Walk to the Strawberry lodge for ice cream or the market for basic food needs. Another winter perk: If 50 is closed, you can still get in to this house- It is ½ mi. below the closure location at Twin Bridges, so you will never have interrupted travels. South Lake Tahoe is a 25 min scenic drive with views of the lake, and mountains along the way.

More photos can be sent if interested.

Got a baby? The house is BABY READY with a crib, rocking chair, two baby gates, and a pack and play.

Got a dog? A nice medium sized wire dog crate with pillow is included.

About Dominic Angelini

We've been visiting, hiking, and skiing around the Twin Bridges & South Lake Tahoe area for over 18 years. Originally from Wild Wonderful West Virginia, we settled in California about 20 years ago and were drawn to the natural beauty of Lake Tahoe. In 2014 we discovered this beautiful home and decided to make it our own. We love this neighborhood and stay at the home with our three children as often as we can. When we're not here we like to share our house with our guests.

Dominic Angelini purchased this house in 2014

Why Dominic Angelini chose Strawberry

Two main things: the house itself, and all that is close to it.

We use this home in Twin Bridges as a base-camp for all our Tahoe area adventures. Hiking, swimming, visiting the nearby lakes, skiing, snowmobiling - everything we like to do is within easy reach. Not right on HW 50, the quite street is great for a walk. We walk to nearby historic Strawberry Lodge for ice cream. We try our luck at fishing in the nearby American River. We chat it up with our neighbors & their guests at the nearby general store. We watch the rock climbers tackle the towering cliff of nearby Lover's Leap. We catch a glimpse of the Milky Way above as we roast marshmallows on the back patio in the evening. Most importantly, we make memories here with our friends.

And the house itself ... such a gem. Tastefully decorated with a tremendous capacity to entertain. Completely remodeled in 2010 - all is new and in great working shape. Every aspect of the property exudes quality and craftsmanship.

Awesome place

  • 5 of 5

The place is very comfortable, nice and warm. There is anything you need in the kitchen and more. Great family-dinning combo and all bedrooms are nice. Definately one of the best places we’ve stayed in the Tahoe area.

There was plenty of room for all of our family. The outdoor space was fantastic for our late August stay.

Elegance in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully appointed "Cabin" is situated across from "Lover's Leap" and the American River where there are many delightfilled excursions to choose from. I began each day with a hot soak in the clawfoot tub and ended each day relaxing by the outdoor campfire (fire pit).

Thanks to the host and hostess all the accessories were at our fingertips, from laundry detergent to a well appointed spice rack.

Thank you Dominic for your availability for questions and concerns from the time I booked the cabin to the day we locked the door and sadly drove away..... till next time dear friend we said to the cabin, knowing we will be back soon to enjoy the outdoors sleeping in the warmth and comfort of 262 Margaret Drive.

Sincere Thanks for this Precious, Homey and Elegant Cabin in the Woods <3

We had a wonderful time as usual!

  • 5 of 5

We love not only the house itself as there is plenty of room for everyone, but also enjoy our time spent on the back patio playing games and enjoying the serene private setting.
