Cabin, 4 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Best Tahoe Cabin has everything one would need for an enjoyable, relaxing stay in South Lake Tahoe. Our two-story chalet is on a double lot with a large driveway with plenty of off street parking. The pine-tree lined street with historic cabins, minimal traffic and woodsy atmosphere makes for a great place to take a stroll, go for a bike ride on our 'his and hers' CRUISER BIKES, or just relax on our covered front porch.

INSIDE, our tastefully decorated cabin is cozy, warm and comfortable with an abundance of Tahoe charm. Relax by the large stone fireplace where you can read, watch TV or listen to music on the stereo/CD player.

OUTDOORS: Walk to the year-round heated swimming pool , ice-skating arena, playground and park, just down the street. The LAKE is just a short, 3 block walk from the cabin. The NEW El Dorado Beachfront is right there with BBQ's, Snack-Bar and Water-Sport Rentals. Bijou Golf Course, 24-Hour Super-Safeway, Starbucks, dining, shopping, library, bowling- alley, tennis, basketball and baseball all within 3-4 blocks walking distance from the cabin. Dine outdoors and relax under the trees on our huge backyard deck, while grilling on either our our GAS or CHARCOAL BBQ's. Take a stroll or ride on our 'his and hers' adult Cruiser Bikes (Inquire about bike rental: $25 daily rental fee applies). Enjoy the cozy outdoor fire pit under the stars.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a cozy and charming cabin where 3 generations of our family spent some memorable days. Our 2 1/2 year old built her first snowman in the backyard. The kitchen was well equipped for our New Year's feast. We sadly ended our stay early, but have many fond memories of the cabin.

Absolutely loved it!

  • 5 of 5
I came here for my birthday and invited some friends and family and it fit us all perfectly. Such a cute cabin and I am already planning on when to go back! I loved the pool table and ping pong table in the backyard. Everything was so clean and fully stocked, it really felt like home. And the location was perfect. Definitely looking forward to my next visit!

Really the Best Cabin in Tahoe!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had the best Tahoe experience and a big reason was because we stayed at the Best Cabin in Tahoe! The cabin definitely gives you that authentic cabin experience. It's very warm and cozy and accommodated all 9 of us. The location is perfect because it's literally minutes away from Heavenly Ski Resort and dozens of restaurants. I will definitely would stay here again and will recommend to all my family and friends looking to experience the perfect Tahoe adventure!

Nice Cabin!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a swim meet and it was very convenient. Cozy and just right for smaller groups (we were 4 adults and 3 kids). Nice amenities, cookies, hot chocolate, popcorn, the kids really liked it. Easily accessible to the beach and a very nice, quiet neighborhood. Owner very responsive to questions via email. Cabin was well maintained and well provisioned for a home away from home! We hope to go back again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Being a seven minute walk from the beach, plus having all of the amenities you could wish for, made our time very enjoyable. Cute, cozy cabin with moose theme throughout; comfortable and quiet; backyard shade or sun or fire pit seating beautifully set up; ping pong table & bikes. Plenty for kids to stay entertained! Perfect vacation get-away.

Perfect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5
We had our first family vacation this year and couldn't have chosen a better place to stay.
Not knowing what to expect, the owner was very helpful and kind in answering my questions. The cabin was just perfect. There was plenty of room for the eight of us. We enjoyed the deck, campfire, and cooking our meals. The cabin was clean, decorated nicely and the beds were comfortable. The location couldn't have been better.
My family bonded and we all drew closer. I'm very happy I found this place.
I would recommend it to anyone.

great location !

  • 5 of 5
My family of 4 stayed here last summer & it was great. We have an 8 & 4 year old & would do day trips (up heavenly, river rafting, beaches, carson city) & this was a great landing pad. Easy to cook & hang out layer by the fire pit. We had a lot of fun! It booked up quickly this year & I waited too long :(. Owners were great!
