About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 6, BONUS new Star & Moon view room w 4x8 skylight

Romantic quiet vintage log cabin with enclosed hot tub on double lot in pine woods setting. New, free wireless Internet. You can walk two blocks to the beach on Lake Tahoe. Located in South Lake Tahoe, 1.8 miles from Nevada State Line casinos, and Heavenly Ski Resort. Two blocks walk through the woods to Safeway and Starbucks. Secluded but close to it all.

Completely enclosed cedar plank fenced in double lot sized back yard. Ideal for kids or pets to safely run and play in the snow or sun. Large back yard barbecue/outdoor kitchen area with log table and seating. Ideal for enjoying the outdoors. An over sized cast iron Chimney too, which is ideal for relaxing at night by the fire while star gazing.

This is your secret mountain lake getaway place that you will want to return to and tell your friends about.

New Improved STAR & MOON room: We have added an enclosed porch area with two oversized 4x4 sky lights, and a double french doors and a 5x10 ft view window into the back yard area.

Lake camping out but indoors on the couch futon for an extra special get away feeling.

Charming & Authentic South Lake Tahoe Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is great for getting away to relax, and it's within a short walking distance to all the attractions that brought us to South Lake Tahoe. The cabin is surrounded by real peace and quiet in the Bijou Pines area, and it has the convenience and proximity to shops and restaurants without having to drive. The hot tub was especially enjoyable before cuddling up by the fireplace and a comfortable night sleep. We can't wait to return to "Cielito Lindo.

Pet Friendly and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This pet friendly & cute log cabin is in a great location in South Lake Tahoe. The owner worked with us on the rate so we could afford our stay in the off season. We really appreciated that the owner rents to big dogs and does not have any silly size restrictions or extra pet charges. We had booked the log cabin for our honeymoon and we were looking forward to lake beach time and lots of hiking with our two big dogs. A couple weeks prior to our honeymoon, we adopted an elderly dog for a shelter. We thought we would have to board her while on our vacation. We were thrilled when the owner said, "three dogs are welcome at the cabin". It was such a gift to be able to have our new 3rd dog with us. The cabin's huge back yard is perfect for people traveling with dogs. Several outdoor furniture to choose from. We made sure to pick up after our dogs and we hope future renters do as well, so this rental can stay pet friendly. The neighbor was available if we needed anything. He introduced himself when we were outside, coming back from a walk and then on check out day, he checked in with us when we were outside in the driveway. The neighbor was very respectful of our privacy and never even knocked on the door. The cabin had a private hot tub and wood for the cute fireplace, both would be amazing in the winter. The kitchen was easy to use and well stocked. There was even a water bowl out for the dogs. When we were not out exploring, our dogs enjoyed watching the squirrel TV from the window and we enjoyed the cable and fast internet. We are looking forward to returning someday soon for another vacation with our dogs.

Rustic Bliss

Dream Vacay!

Thanks to the owners and property manager for making us feel safe and welcome! We've never been on vacation where we took as many pictures of the accommodations as the sightseeing! We will be staying longer next time. Your historic property was worth every penny. T & K Kurns

Darlin, just Darling!

  • 5 of 5

Loved every moment of our stay! If you love authentic rustic charm (which we do) then this is the place for you. I want to be back when there is snow. Yes, there are little quirks that just adds to the charm. It was everything we needed for a quiet romantic getaway. We didn't want to leave and will definitely be back.
