About Steve and Mary Walker

Steve and Mary purchased The Charming Tahoe Cabin in 2005, fulfilling a life long dream to have a cabin at Lake Tahoe. There are not many places on this Earth that is as beautiful as Tahoe and the Sierras. Sometimes it takes our breath away. We spend our summers now biking around the Lake, riding our horses along the Tahoe Rim Trail (130 miles completed) and now kyaking around the Lake (completed 3 times). Our son, Kenny, says we are going to be dancing around the Lake next...OK, bring it on! Winter sports here are unparalleled. Come enjoy this special place!

Why Steve and Mary Walker chose South Lake Tahoe

We purchased our Charming Tahoe Cabin because it is located just 2 blocks from Spectacular Lake Tahoe and only 2 miles from Heavenly Ski Resort. The casinos are just 2 miles away for great nightlife fun and concerts. Restaurants are all within a couple minutes. It's a very warm and cozy and special place.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our stay at your charming cabin. Celebrated my birthday here-had a great meal at Riva's. Found the huge conservancy meadow just a few blocks away...lots of birds there. As usual, the Lake was beautiful, especially framed with the snow crusted mountains. Sorry to leave!

Great Tahoe cabin with very nice backyard.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was neat and clean and close to the lake. It easily held six adults with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The owners responded promptly to any questions we had. I would definitely stay here again.

A Little Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

My siblings and I (as well as our dogs) had a great time in South Lake Tahoe, and this cabin helped to make that possible. It was quite comfortable, and for us, it was just the right size. It had plenty of space, and all the amenities we needed. As said in the description, there is a fenced backyard, which was great for dogs and for a little privacy. We enjoyed being able to take a stroll to the lake day or night; it's a short walk away. I also very much enjoyed birding at the Truckee Marsh, which is also within walking distance. I look forward to returning to Lake Tahoe and will definitely check if this cabin is available.

Charming and peaceful

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely place to take a break away. It is so close to all that South Lake Tahoe has to offer. We took our dogs, and the back yard is perfect for them to run in. The house was clean and welcoming.

Sweet Little Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent three nights in this darling cabin. Lots of room for six adults and two dogs. Well kept and everything we needed besides clothing and food was provided. The only thing I would change would be to add some grass in the backyard but I understand all the extra maintenance it takes for the upkeep. Will absolutely return again!

Owner's Response: Hi, Susan, I am so glad you guys had a great time. The backyard used to be a sandy beach millions of years ago, I guess, and lawns are frowned upon at Tahoe because the fertilizers, etc. get into the Lake and harm its clarity. So, most Tahoe homes have plants and trees but no lawns in order to keep Tahoe Blue. Thank you and we look forward to your next visit. Mary
