About Matt Shelton

We hope to provide travelers a great vacations for people looking for a really nice base from which to enjoy this wonderful area

We built the cabin recently and worked hard to create a "cabin" feel".

Why Matt Shelton chose Tahoe Island

This property has a great deal of space and is perfect for couples, groups or families. From this part of the lake, you have the best restaurants, are close to casinos and skiing, hiking and the wilderness area. We are located on the Tahoe bike path which allows miles of off the road, paved cycling.

What makes this house unique

The great room allows for many people to be in the same area but also have their space.

I really like the kitchen (first one we have designed) because of the deep counters and large cooking areas. A six burner range allows for multiple items to be on the stove without crowding. The cabin has 10 foot ceilings throughout and the great room has a 28 foot ceiling. All the doors are alder and most are 8 feet. The downstairs walls and ceilings are blue pine.

The home is excellent and was very spacious for four adult couples.

  • 5 of 5

Home was very spacious and well kept, clean and decorated appropriately as a cabin vacation house in Tahoe. Enjoyed the entertainment feature of the facilities, kitchen, bar and great room while watching the NCAA final four. House is secure, clean and well maintained. We however recommend that shower be installed in the upstairs bathroom. We strongly recommend this home for groups and families.

Great house, great value!

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a place for spring break a little last minute this year. When I saw Jack’s Tahoe retreat pop up at a very reasonable price, I thought “this is too good to be true. What’s the catch?” I booked, but still half expected the other shoe to drop. Well, it didn’t: the house is every bit as good as it looks online. Amazing kitchen and great room, lots of space with 5 bedrooms. The owners are very responsive as well. Highly recommend and we’ll be back!

Our family stayed for the weekend in January 2018 and we had an awesome time. We found this rental last minute after almost booking another unit and we are so glad we did! This house is beautifully constructed with modern finishes and a well appointed Kitchen & Bathrooms. The great room is spacious for the whole family to spread out and hang out together. The owners were very communicative and a pleasure to work with. We visit Tahoe several times a year and will certainly try to book this property in the future.
