Property Details

Updated: May 10, 2015
Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-4)

A cozy theme cabin with quality log-cabin style furnishings located on a private wooded lot with direct access to USFS land, it really feels like living in the mountains! Hike out the back less than 2 minutes to incredible views of the lake and Mt Tallac.

We nicknamed the cabin 'The Treehouse' because of it's wooded surroundings and comfy feel. It is two stories with the loft and main bedroom upstairs. The cabin is located at the end of a dead-end street surrounded by forest. Enjoy the hot tub in the middle of a snowstorm or at the end of a long summer hike. My family and friends have spent many fun-filled weeks at the cabin.

In the summer you can bike to Pope Beach and Camp Richardson. In the winter you can hike up behind the cabin and ski or snowboard down Twin Peaks for a little backcountry experience. We love it!

About the Owner

I love all the outdoor activities Tahoe has to offer and a few it doesn't: my husband and I travel the world to feed our kiteboarding addiction and to immerse ourselves in a variety of cultures.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an amazing time! Yall's place is perfect. Since I've gotten back I've told just about everyone I know they need to go to yall's place. It's cozy, homey, intimate, secluded but close to town, and the short hike up the back hill is really amazing at the top. We took a bottle of wine up there and just hung out for a while taking in the view. I don't think we could have found a better place.

Theme Cabin with Hot Tub-2 Minute Hike to Incredible Views!
Y area South Lake Tahoe

Small cabin that has it all!

  • 5 of 5
My wife, daughter (4 yrs), and myself stayed in this lovely cabin for a short weekend in Tahoe. The cabin is small but has every amenity you could want; full kitchen, bathroom with a tub (perfect for kids), dishwasher, washing machine, gas wood burning stove that puts out serious heat, TV, and a comfy couch. The only tricky part that wasn't a problem for us is the stairs are narrow and steep and the bed is raised a good 4 feet off the floor. The best part of the cabin though is when you go outside. The location at the end of dead end street gives the cabin a lot of privacy with hiking trails directly out back that lead to some great views. Finally the hot tub on the deck tops it off…it worked perfectly and is so relaxing throughout the day. We lucked out and it snowed a couple of inches on Easter Sunday so we got the best of both worlds (jacuzzi on Saturday and snow men on Sunday). You are also close to town and stores/restaurants are 5-10 min away. I'd stay here again!

A great getaway

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed that the cabin is at the end of a quiet street and being able to hike from the back yard was awesome. Very cozy place with all the amenities to feel like home. I would recommend this for couples who are looking for that Tahoe cabin getaway. My only complaint was the hot tub was a bit cloudy. We will be back.

Cozy and Welcoming

  • 5 of 5
We greatly enjoyed our stay over the weekend. Comfortable lodging for three adults and the size was just right to feel cozy. The gas fireplace was great to have, and we loved the hot tub! A full dining table and a coffee table would have been nice, but we were very comfortable through the weekend. We did have two spiders crawl onto us during one night, but a very clean, comfortable and cozy property!

We were so amazed and excited by it!

This little cabin was just perfect for 2 people. My fiancé got to enjoy the hot tub and he also saw a bear come up to the front steps which he was very excited about. The cabin is beyond cute. The steps to the bedroom kept throwing me off guard on the way down but other than that it was great. We loved the privacy we had out there. If we get a chance to go to South Lake again, I will definitely be looking into renting this cabin again.

OH and the hike, yes that is a must. It was just the perfect way for us to end our trip. LOVED IT! Thank you so much!

Amazing hike!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the cabin for 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay! It was so nice to relax in the spa after a long day of hiking. We cooked two nights and loved all the kitchen appliances. We also loved the fact that Raleys was so close. The highlights would have to be the amazing hike views!

From the Owner

I moved to South Lake Tahoe in 1999 with the intention of staying one winter and never left. Tahoe is an amazing place! As a lover of the outdoors, it's the most incredible place to live. Being from Oregon, my family bought a vacation home on the same street as my cabin in 1983. We vacationed in Tahoe every summer and some winters while I was growing up. I have such fond memories of all of us together laughing and playing in this beautiful place. The 'hill' behind my cabin used to be our playground in the 80's. My parents still own their vacation home just one block away.

From the Owner

Since the cabin used to be my primary residence and I love to cook, the kitchen is well stocked with quality pots and pans, and utensils. There's a PS3 that allows for blu-ray DVD watching and streaming Netflix. I love to listen to music and hang out with friends and family who come to visit. In the summer we BBQ on the deck and eat outside on the picnic table. In the winter, we enjoy evening hot tubs with cocktails. We almost always take advantage of the short hike straight up behind the property for views of the lake.
