About Janine Dickenson
We have owned a cabin in Tahoe for over 20 years- an older cabin and now this new one. Owning a cabin has provided us a with a delightful venue, allowing us to spend quality time with our family and each other.
Janine Dickenson purchased this House in 2008
Why Janine Dickenson chose Tahoe City
We have looked on the West Shore for years in search of a more private cabin than our first one. This particular aspect is an overwhelming priority for us, perhaps simply because our primary residence is also very private, and it is what we are accustomed to. Of course, along with privacy, everything thing else about it had to be just what we wanted- if not, we were plenty happy with our older cabin. When we discovered this property, we knew it was prefect for us!
What makes this House unique
Located in an upscale neighborhood, our mountain home is private, quiet, and surrounded by forested conservancy lots, and offers a filtered, treetop lake view. Of quality construction only several years old, it is thoughtfully and tastefully furnished, appointed and maintained. Families will appreciate the downstairs family room when entertainment tastes differ among varying age groups. You'll experience great walking, hiking and biking year round at nearby Paige Meadows. Our private beach is delightful for all age groups- stake out your little nook on the shady lawn, reserve a table for a barbeque, or opt for tanning on the beach. Tahoe Beach Park activities include horseshoes, volleyball, basketball and a playground for the tots. The private beach will prove to be an even more valuable asset, should our nearby state parks close for public use. Our location allows for your choice of vacation options- nonstop outdoor activities and convenient dining, or cozy cocooning.

Great place to stay.
This is a great place to stay with a few families. Good size kitchen, family room and bedrooms. Parking is a little tough when you have big vehicles. I’m glad there wasn’t fresh snow/ice because it would be hard to park the vehicles. Would stay here again. Great communication with the owner.
Great property and setup. Owners were great to communicate with.
We're happy that you enjoyed your stay! And that you had a lot of snow! We hope to welcome you back!
Christmas in Tahoe
We arrived on a very snowy day. The driveway was freshly plowed. The house is beautiful and very well appointed. The layout allowed us to spread out but still be together with the open floor plan. The location is great. We walked up the street to snow shoe and have our grandson try out his snowboard. We will definitely be back!
I'm glad you got fresh snow and our driveway was plowed! We have a new snow plough service (we were happy with our other, but he decided to concentrate on another aspect of his business and recommended our current guy). He is great as well and we're happy with him. We looked for years to buy another larger cabin (we had a cozy small cabin in Tahoma) and when we found this home we felt it was just perfect. I agree with you completely about the layout. Perfect for families - when you want to be together there is a nice open kitchen/living room/dining room, but when you want a little separation from the youngsters, they can play games and watch TV downstairs while the grown-ups converse upstairs! We also really enjoy the privacy, with conservation lots all around us. Thank you for your nice review and we'd love to welcome you back!
Wonderful vacation home with great location
The house has great location, close enough to Lake Tahoe and Tahoe City Town center, but far enough from traffic and crowds. The house is perfect for 3 small families to enjoy days of fun, in our case, in the first major snow of the year. The kids, and us, had so much fun.
The house is very clean and well equipped with all amenities that you will need for the stay. The owner was extremely helpful as well, offering helps to us to get through the snow storm. Thank you!
Strongly recommend! And love to visit back in summer.
Thank you for your review. We are so happy you had fun and enjoyed the first big snow! Sometimes it can be a challenge, but usually, the snow is a delight, especially for kids! I love the view from our upstairs living area looking out over the forest of trees laden with snow. We try very hard to keep our home equiped with everything a vacationer my need.We hope to welcome you back this summer, or anytime!
Lovely large mountain home above Lake Tahoe
This is a large house in a very nice neighborhood above Lake Tahoe. It nicely furnished and well maintained. Fully stocked kitchen and recently remodeled bathrooms. Only a few minutes drive to Tahoe City. Janine went the extra mile for us, when I requested that bed linens, towels, etc be washed in fragrance-free detergent prior to our arrival (I’m highly allergic to perfume, fragrance, etc). Her son brought hypoallergenic detergent to the house and washed everything using that. We really appreciated the extra effort made for us.
Thank you, Gerald for your kind remarks! We try to keep the kitchen pretty well stocked, because we know from past experience that there is nothing more irritating than getting in after a long drive/flight, settling in, then only to find that there is no salt or pepper for the steaks you picked up on your way!
Thanks also for alerting me to the fact that perfumed laundry soap is not for every one! Actually, my husband has bee complaining about the perfumy smell of the sheets, so I'm going to migrate over to fragrance free detergent in the future.
We hope to welcome you back and thanks again!
Summer Trip To Lake Tahoe
We are three small families. We had a great time together. This is a nice house in a great location. We had a wonderful time together throughout our stay.
Thanks for your nice review!
We think our home is perfect for two or three small families! We adore our location, but in complete honesty, we like quiet and private- some people like more of a party atmosphere closer to the lake. To each their own! We feel like we have the best of all worlds, rarely a car goes by. We hope to welcome you back!
