Cozy Tahoe cabin with rustic elegance and modern comfort in fantastic location

Beautifully remodeled in 2016, this is a picture perfect woodsy Tahoe cabin with rustic elegance. The location is fantastic, directly across from the National forest and close to family friendly activities (hiking, biking, skiing, Lake Tahoe, Fallen Leaf Lake, and Camp Richardson). This cabin is perfect for couples, families, and furry friends (well behaved house trained dogs; the property is fully fenced). Every effort has been made to provide a cozy bed and breakfast like experience. The cabin has been set up with a brand new fully equipped kitchen and luxurious spa like main bathroom, entertainment center, an additional full bathroom in the master bedroom, and brand new beds and down comforters. Enjoy a long soak in the oversized main bath tub. There is an entry way mud room efficiently setup to store wet helmets, gloves, ski boots, and jackets. Each bedroom has an individual wall heater, which allow personalized temperature settings. There is a large flat screen TV in the family room with a DVD player, and a selection of DVD's and games. This cabin is a tranquil place to relax as a couple or family in front of the cozy fireplace or enjoy the new 6 person hot tub.

The location is fantastic, situated on a very quiet street, directly across from a National Forest. Walk or ride your bikes directly to the many beautiful Camp Richardson trails, the best beaches in Lake Tahoe, Fallen Leaf Lake, or Rainbow Trail. Visit the historical buildings in Camp Richardson to take in some of Lake Tahoe's history. Heavenly and Sierra at Tahoe ski resorts are a very short drive away, as are Casinos if you want to test your luck.

Cabin sleeps 6.

** NEW SLT CODE: Maximum 2 cars allowed in the driveway ONLY, no street parking, no excessive noise outside after 10pm. $1,000 fine for both renter and owner for violation **

About Steve Sorensen

My wife and I (Steve & Lisa), met in college at UC Berkeley 28 years ago and were married in 1994. After completing our studies, we moved back to my home town of Santa Rosa in 2001. We are blessed with two great kids, one dog, and 4 cats. Lisa is an OB/GYN physician, and I am an IT professional. The spectacular nature of Tahoe has made it our favorite family vacation spot, and we had dreamed of buying a cabin in Tahoe for many years. We found the perfect match in our favorite neighborhood, an older cabin with loads of character and charm. We spent the next 9 months completely renovating it. We kept all the wood cabin charm, but provided all the modern conveniences you could want. Over the years, we have rented many Tahoe cabins and stayed in adorable B&B's which have been our inspiration throughout the renovation. Our goal is to provide charm, attention to detail, and comfort in a cozy cabin setting.

Steve Sorensen purchased this Cabin in 2016

Why Steve Sorensen chose South Lake Tahoe

We focused our cabin search on the Garden Mountain neighborhood, a fantastic location directly across from the National Forest. The cabin is located on a quiet street surrounded by nature, where you can walk or bike right out the front door and visit Lake Tahoe, Camp Richardson, beautiful beaches, excellent restaurants, Fallen Leaf Lake, hiking trails, and more... Amazing skiing at Heavenly is just a 10-15 minute drive away. Sierra at Tahoe and Kirkwood are also easily accessible, providing a great variety of skiing and boarding opportunities.

What makes this Cabin unique

Lisa and I are new to vacation renting, and want to make this a wonderful experience for our guests. We strive to make this a vacation get a way that you will inspire you to make this your vacation home of first choice!

                                                                  Gabrielle F.Oakland

                                                                  Absolutely loved this cabin! From the moment we arrived, our party was impressed by the little touches around the home that made it feel so welcoming. We loved the user friendly fireplace and hot tub, and the downstairs bathroom was gorgeous. The decor was lovely, and the cabin was so clean! We’ve rented dozens of homes in Tahoe but this cabin was the cleanest and nicest by far! The location was great, and my dogs loved the fully fenced yard. We would definitely recommend!

                                                                  Very clean and comfortable. Dog friendly.

                                                                  A lovely warm and cozy space with all the amenities that you need for an amazing stay.

                                                                  Dave B.

                                                                  A Magical Retreat in the Woods

                                                                  Paula F.

                                                                  This cabin was everything we hoped it would be—charming and lovingly decorated with comfy beds, upgraded bathrooms, ample towels, and a well-stocked kitchen. Steve and Lisa left no details unattended, which is probably why it has such a personal feel. We were fortunate enough to be here during a major snowstorm, which made our stay all the more magical. The snow removal service was an added bonus, which saved us time from excavating our cars each morning. The kitchen itself had everything we needed, including a pizza stone. We loved relaxing in the family room with its big picture window and a fireplace that kept us warm. The cabin's location is idyllic, situated in a quiet neighborhood near hiking trails and the Heavenly ski resort. The skiing that weekend was epic, to say the least, and our kids loved relaxing in the jacuzzi after a full day on the slopes. Thank you Steve and Lisa! We hope to return.

                                                                  What a thoughtful review, very much appreciated! Lisa and I are so happy to hear about positive experiences from our guests. Lisa and my daughter Grace are behind all the interior design and accessories. So happy to hear you had a great time and we really hope to have you back in the future.

                                                                  I was looking for a very cozy, clean, nicely decorated cabin with a mountain feel and modern upgrades and this place was just it! Plus the owner agreed to host our little dog too, so we had a chance to experience a complete family getaway! We were celebrating our birthdays, especially my husband's round 50 and invited his mom and sister as well. We found two bottles of champagne in the fridge and great hospitality there so we couldn't have been more grateful. Everyone loved the place and we will be back! Thank you Steve!
