Overview

About the property

Romantic and cozy craftsman style honeymoon cottage 1 bedroom 1 bathroom.

This charming and private cottage is a wonderful place for two people who want to get away from it all! There is a peek of Lake Tahoe from the living room. Lake Forest Beach is a few hundred yards away and Skylandia Park and Beach, a short walk away. The paved bike path that takes you into Tahoe City and continues along the West Shore or down the Truckee River is just a short five-minute bike ride away. The ski resorts Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley and Northstar are each about 20 minutes driving distance. Tahoe Cross Country Ski area is a very short three minute drive for winter Nordic skiing or snowshoeing. In the summer Tahoe XC offers an expansive mountain biking trail system. This location is central to Tahoe City and Kings Beach for shopping and a variety of restaurants.

The cottage is part of an original Lake Tahoe Estate. You have access to Lake Tahoe along a public path. The main house on the estate is rented full time and we ask that you respect the resident's privacy. There are two dogs that live at the main residence and who, along with the human residents of the main house, may be seen around the property during your stay.

Nice Place. All as promised.

  • 5 of 5

Pictures don't really do justice to the craftsmanship of the house, quality of the appliances and the tasteful furnishings. All are top quality. Granite stone fireplace is beautiful. We would recommend it to anyone and we hope to return sometime.

Great little cabin

  • 4 of 5

Very nice little Craftsman Style guest cabin built in the '20s. We were there during an unusual cold snap in February (two fairly major snow events while we were there) so we had a couple of related issues (frozen pipe) with the property but the property manager, Mischel was on top of things right away and took care of any issues. Very comfortable and in a great location. 20 minutes from Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows. Just down the road from North Tahoe village. We would definitely recommend this reasonably priced cabin.

Quiet Retreat in the Woods

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the Lake Forest Cottage. It was just the right amount of space for two people and was very comfortable. We loved the general location, though the cottage itself was not very private with the main house just feet away. Another reviewer mentioned a view - there is definitely NOT a view from the cottage, though the beach was a short walk down the road. The cottage had everything we needed, including beach chairs/towels and an insulated bag for day trips. We enjoyed being greeted by the friendly dogs that live on the property. Great stay!

'QUIET' FOREST LAKE COTTAGE

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this comfortable cottage for five days, and it was so relaxing, amongst the tall trees. This quaint cottage was furnished nicely and very clean. It is suited for two people looking for peace and quiet from their busy life. The small kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals. It is just a short distance to dine out at one of the many restaurants available, if that is what you choose. JAKES on the waterfront, was amazing! Food was great, and the view of the harbor was beautiful. Also, from the cottage, take a 5 minute down hill walk, or drive, to the lake. There is a ample parking. VIEWS!! VIEWS!! VIEWS!! We would recommend this property to our friends. Then again, we might keep it a secret. Loved it!
