We live in San Francisco and purchased this home to rent first and use second. We have equipped the property with items that allow everyone from children to grandparents to enjoy their Tahoe vacation.
The Owner purchased this cabin in 2008
We really enjoyed the log construction of the cabin and the natural ambiance of the home. As we continued to look at homes in the Tahoe area, we really enjoyed the Agate Bay area and that this specific home had access to the community swimming pool, tennis courts, and pier and buoy field.
In the summer, you will enjoy the large redwood deck that includes the hot tub, patio furniture, and fire ring (who need to camp to have smores?). You can also walk to Patton Beach (dog friendly) and Carnelian Bay (Gar Woods restaurant, CB's Restaurant, Miniature Golf Course, and more). The rental cabin is 3 miles from Kings Beach where the best grocery store in Tahoe is located (Safeway) and is only 7 miles to Tahoe City for shopping, restaurants, river rafting, and more.
In the winter, the home is centrally located to Northstar, Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley so you can go to the best resort based on weather conditions and ability levels. The home is also located just 5 miles from Lake Tahoe Cross Country, 5 miles from the north shore casino's, and you can start a snow shoe trip just down the street.
This is the second year in a row that we have stayed in the Taylor cabin. It is such a comfortable and cozy cabin. The ping pong table is a huge hit with the kids, and we all enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit each night. Our dogs enjoyed laying on the back deck too! We are hoping to even make a trip back this fall.
We spent the crazy busy week between Christmas and New Years at the Taylor home skiing with another family. We managed to not feel cramped in the 1600 square feet with 10 people! The layout is nice for two families, the bunk room set with old school VHS/DVD player the kids loved. Our 6 kids (13-5) watched classic Disney movies every day and enjoyed their space. We didn't find a foosball for the table, which would have been nice. Everything you could need was in this house, including things we hadn't expected like spices, a crock pot, and LOTS of pots and pans. The key was frozen in the hot tub and the management company very quickly helped us fix the problem. I would suggest some more lighting/replacing light bulbs. It was a little dark at times and the heat was a little spotty. Overall, though, this was a great fit for us for the week! I would stay there again.
The house is awesome. We rented the house because it was pet friendly and within walking distance to a great off-leash beach area at Carnelian Bay. The house is clean, very comfortable and spacious with a nice patio in the backyard. I will definitely rent this property again.
This cabin was perfect for us!!! There was plenty of room for the 5 adults and 3 children. The house was clean, well maintained and stocked, and close to everything, but felt like we were in the country. The cabin felt like a cheerful second home!
This home is perfectly located in a quiet neighborhood just blocks from the lake! It fit our family perfectly, including our dog.
The house was not as clean as we would like, especially given how much you pay for a cleaning fee.
Otherwise, it was a perfect summer getaway in a fantastic place!
We spent a wonderful Thanksgiving at the Taylor
home. It is in a great neighborhood for walking the
dog and the neighbors we met were very friendly. We
