About the Owner

We came from the mid-west as college students for a summer job. Kathy and I have been friends since we met as black jack dealers at Sahara Tahoe in the early 1970's; it was a summer vacation that lasted for more than a decade! Eventually our lives went in various directions but our hearts and souls have been embedded in Lake Tahoe since that first summer. Kathy is now a casino manager in Reno and I have a career in real estate in the Bay Area - town of Los Gatos.

Thank you so much for renting us your lovely cabin. We had a great time. It was the kids first snow! We didn't get any fresh snow but they didn't know the difference:).

Your place is terrific. I couldn't think of a more ideal place for this important "first" family memory. We will be back.

Great location and ammenities

  • 5 of 5
My family had a fabulous stay at this property. It was conveniently located to the South Lake Tahoe attractions plus it had hiking trails right out the backyard. It was well equipped with everything we needed and was very well maintained. We recommend this property and will definitely like to rent here in the future. Thank you so much!

Clean and Lovely Cabin

  • 5 of 5
The cabin is as shown in the photos, clean and cute, very functional - kitchen, fireplace, and bathroom are well-maintained. Everything is great and cozy and we were very happy during our stay in this Tahoe cabin during the New Years week. Dee was very helpful during the process and booking the place went very smoothly.

Best cabin we have ever stayed at!

  • 5 of 5
I cannot say enough about how great this cabin was! This was our 4th cabin rental in south lake and our hands down favorite. The cabin was very nicely sized, with comfy beds and a beautiful location. Our toddler had a blast rearranging all of the tasteful knick knacks and the drawers in the kitchen.
This kitchen was the first kitchen ever that actually had staples in the pantry! Didn't have to buy salt and pepper and oil to cook, which was amazing. Every kitchen item you could need was there!
The bathroom was fantastic , heated floors in winter! The decor throughout the house was beautiful and made you feel comfortable as soon as you arrived.
The owners were very accommodating and the kiddo enjoyed the sleds provided. Love the location backing the forest too, great for morning walks with the dog.
We will always be booking this cabin when we visit!
Thank you for sharing your second home!

Great weekend stay!

  • 4 of 5
We had a great weekend at this cabin. Everything was clean and comfy, and it was just the right size for us, our two kids, and our dog. We appreciated being able to bring our dog, she loved catching snowballs and eating them. At the cabin we are pretty sure we saw a wolf walking down the street, and a highlight for the kids - bear poop! :) The kitchen was well equipped and very nice. We enjoyed being close to everything, we took the kids across the state line for the first time and explored that area. Unfortunately there wasn't a lot of snow in the area the weekend we were there, but there was plenty at Camp Sacramento in the Echo Summit area, and the kids had a blast learning to sled. Overall it was a great place at a great price, I definitely recommend it!
The only reason I didn't give the place 5 stars is that we had a couple stressful moments involving the locks. We were warned that it may be difficult to get in, and it was - it took nearly 10 minutes to get the lock on the door between the mud room and house to unlock upon our arrival. Then we discovered that the side door can be opened from the inside without unlocking it, and we ended up being locked out of the house when the kids went out without unlocking the door and we followed. Fortunately the kitchen window happened to be unlocked and we were able to boost a kid through. Not the owners' fault, but something to be aware of.

Super cozy and relaxing, feels like a dream!

  • 5 of 5
Our family came for Christmas and we can't say enough about our experience and the cabin. It is so cozy and inviting! The forest in the back was an absolute dream! There was just enough snow for the kids to play and a hill that was just perfect for our young daughters first time sledding! It was so great to be so close to everything but yet feel secluded. We were minutes away from Heavenly Village, grovery stores, and snowmobiling. The cabin was just the right size and had everything we would have needed and more. We will give you a call Dee when ever we can make it back! The kids wanted to move in and also want to experience Tahoe in the summer. I highly recommend this cabin over any of the hotels. We were able to make a traditional Christmas dinner and had a feeling of home while still being on vacation and away form it all! Thank you Dee for such an experience. We were all very happy!

This affordable cabin was perfect!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in the cabin for 6 weeks this summer, and I couldn't have asked for a nicer home away from home. The location was perfect: within minutes walking to the forest trails and trout creek, minutes to a multitude of bike paths, and a peaceful uninhabited meadow directly behind the cabin. In a quiet residential neighborhood with easy access to Hwy 50 and the lesser-used local roads to get anywhere you want to go.

The cabin was extremely comfortable, with some nice amenities other rentals don't offer: DVR service on the Living Room AND Master Bedroom TV's, answering machine on the landline phone with additional phones in every room, electric space heater in the bathroom for those chilly morning showers, modern updated kitchen with newer appliances, a well-stocked pantry that contained all those extra things you forgot to bring and don't want to buy for your short stay. The beds were extremely comfortable. The gas fireplace on a thermostat in the living room was lovely on cool mornings, plus there's a gas furnace if you need more heat elsewhere in the house. The house was large and well-laid out for a 2-bedroom; there was plenty of table/dining space. The gas grill was large and handy.

Dee, the owner, was very responsive to any queries I had - reponding almost immediately when I contacted her the few times I was there.

I wish I could have stayed longer and am very disappointed this cabin was not available for my long term rental in summer 2014. I spent quite a bit of time while I was in Tahoe searching for another place for next year, and found nothing to compare to this cabin at anywhere near the rate Dee charges. Snap this one up!

From the Owner

Tahoe in the 70's was deliciously decadent; the result of sharing that experience created life-long friendships for about 20 of us 'girls.' Though few of us remained at the Lake after 1980, we return almost every summer for our annual 'Reunion;' next year will be the 30th anniversary of those reunions. We rent a big, comfortable house either on the Lake or with a fabulous view of the Lake and spend 4-5 days reminiscing or trying to re-create those crazy times. And we have a blast! As our reunion group gets smaller, we spend most of our vacation reunions in our cabin.

From the Owner

We love being off the beaten track, yet right in the center of S. Lake Tahoe. All the open space behind the cabin makes us feel like we are in the woods, it's great to hike along Trout Creek enjoying the huge meadows that are all around the cabin.
