Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + loft, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 7-9
This custom redwood cabin is an open concept floor plan with lake views from almost every room. It is located just up the hill from lovely Sunnyside Restaurant and Lodge on the west shore of Lake Tahoe, with access to a beautifully maintained members-only beach. Couples are welcome to rent the top half of the cabin (master suite, living, dining, kitchen, powder room, garage, outdoor deck) at a reduced rate; please inquire. It is also senior-friendly, with no stairs from the garage/street level to the living space and master suite.
The cabin has 4 bedrooms that comfortably sleep 8, plus a loft that sleeps 2 more. There are two and a half bathrooms. The cabin is ideally located just 4 blocks from trail heads and 1.3 miles from the beautiful members-only beach, a small market, two great local restaurants, and paddleboard, bike and kayak rentals. Golf and shopping in Tahoe City are less then 4 miles away and wonderful Squaw Valley Resort is 9 miles away.
The cabin is only 15 miles to casinos at Cal-Neva Resort, 20 miles to the airport in Truckee, 30 miles to casinos and nightlife in South Lake Tahoe, approximately 50 miles to gambling and nightlife in Carson City or Reno, and 115 miles to Sacramento and the SMF international airport.
Seniors and those with limited mobility will appreciate that almost all of the living space is on the street level, including the living room with its cozy stone fireplace, the dining area with large dining table that comfortably seats 8, open kitchen, powder room, master suite with attached bathroom, large outdoor deck with picnic table, and a two-car attached garage. Beautiful lake views can be enjoyed through 15+ ft windows in the living room, from a window seat in the dining area, and from the master suite.
There is 10 mg high speed internet, expanded cable TV, and a stereo in the living room. A wide selection of books, including information and maps about the area, are provided for your enjoyment. Kids will have fun climbing the ladder to the loft above the living room, playing board games, and enjoying their own game room downstairs, with ping pong and foosball tables, all with lake views. There are three bedrooms downstairs with a queen plus twin, two twins and a trundle twin.
The location is ideal for sports enthusiasts. Hiking, mountain biking, and cross-country skiing trail heads leading to beautiful Paige Meadows are a fun walk just 4 blocks up the hill. The private beach club ***CLOSED DURING WINTER*** is just a 1 mile down the hill, where you can sunbathe a few feet above the lake water on two wooden piers, sprawl on a blanket in the shade, play volleyball or do a little grilling at one of the wooden picnic tables and charcoal BBQ pits. Within view is the playground and horseshoes. Walk up the beach and in one minute you will be on the deck of Sunnyside Restaurant, for drinks and dining at the water's edge. There is a second great local restaurant just across the street from Sunnyside and within easy walking distance of the beach.
The Tahoe City Golf Course and Truckee River rafting are 4 miles away. Tahoe State Park is 3 miles away and has terrific walking paths with four-season wildlife viewing.
During winter the cabin is always rented for a ski lease lasting the entire season. There is a wide selection of ski resorts nearby: 6 miles to Homewood, 7 miles to Alpine Meadows, 9 miles to Squaw, 20 miles to Northstar, and 37 miles to beautiful Heavenly Valley. Upon return from the slopes, relax in the two-person Jacuzzi tub located in the downstairs bathroom.
This cabin is ideal for active sports enthusiasts and nature lovers, as well as for those interested in just relaxing and enjoying time with family and friends. Very well-behaved pets are welcome only upon prior written approval.

We love this house
This place was fantastic!
The main living space has redwood lined walls and floor-to-ceiling windows. It was a really great space for me to sit with my father and look out at the beautiful trees and lake. The cabin is very well maintained—all flooring is spotless and looked new, and the countertops and fixtures are very clean.
We found a great breakfast restaurant called the Fire Sign Café at the bottom of the hill, across the street from the Sunnyside Resort, about a mile from the cabin. It had, according to my father, “the best coffee I ever tasted,” and he is a coffee drinker! It was so good and so convenient; we had breakfast there every day. Dinner at Sunnyside was also very good and there are some world-class restaurants in Tahoe City. This place is awesome!
