Perfect real log cabin.

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing trip for me and my two small kids. The cabin was awesome and everything was clean and comfortable. I will for sure be coming back. The jacuzzi was perfect after the kids went to sleep. I would recommend this home to anyone.

Sweet and rustic cabin was a great weekend getaway.

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely weekend at the cabin with our dog. John, the owner, was very welcoming and met us shortly after our arrival with supplies, coffee, and wine. The cabin is old, but in that lies it's charm. It is an authentic cabin experience. Thank you, John! We had a great stay.

My girlfriend and I had a great time we both have pets and this place was very pet friendly. Linda the manager came by on Saturday to make sure our stay was good she was a very pleasant woman to talk to. If you have pets I highly recommend this place.

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.
