About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-4)

PRESIDENT'S DAY WEEKEND IS NORMALLY $200/NIGHT. NOW JUST $150/NIGHT.

A cozy theme cabin with quality log-cabin style furnishings located on a private wooded lot with direct access to USFS land, it really feels like living in the mountains! Hike out the back less than 2 minutes to incredible views of the lake and Mt Tallac.

We nicknamed the cabin 'The Treehouse' because of it's wooded surroundings and comfy feel. It is two stories with the loft and main bedroom upstairs. The cabin is located at the end of a dead-end street surrounded by forest. Enjoy the hot tub in the middle of a snowstorm or at the end of a long summer hike. My family and friends have spent many fun-filled weeks at the cabin.

In the summer you can bike to Pope Beach and Camp Richardson. In the winter you can hike up behind the cabin and ski or snowboard down Twin Peaks for a little backcountry experience. We love it!

About Heather

I love all the outdoor activities Tahoe has to offer and a few it doesn't: my husband and I travel the world to feed our kiteboarding addiction and to immerse ourselves in a variety of cultures.

Heather purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Heather chose South Lake Tahoe

I moved to South Lake Tahoe in 1999 with the intention of staying one winter and never left. Tahoe is an amazing place! As a lover of the outdoors, it's the most incredible place to live.

Being from Oregon, my family bought a vacation home on the same street as my cabin in 1983. We vacationed in Tahoe every summer and some winters while I was growing up. I have such fond memories of all of us together laughing and playing in this beautiful place. The 'hill' behind my cabin used to be our playground in the 80's. My parents still own their vacation home just one block away.

What makes this cabin unique

Since the cabin used to be my primary residence and I love to cook, the kitchen is well stocked with quality pots and pans, and utensils. There's a PS3 that allows for blu-ray DVD watching and streaming Netflix. I love to listen to music and hang out with friends and family who come to visit. In the summer we BBQ on the deck and eat outside on the picnic table. In the winter, we enjoy evening hot tubs with cocktails. We almost always take advantage of the short hike straight up behind the property for views of the lake.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an amazing time! Yall's place is perfect. Since I've gotten back I've told just about everyone I know they need to go to yall's place. It's cozy, homey, intimate, secluded but close to town, and the short hike up the back hill is really amazing at the top. We took a bottle of wine up there and just hung out for a while taking in the view. I don't think we could have found a better place.

Great cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a fantastic stay in Tahoe for 2 nights. This cabin is off the beaten path, second to last on a dead end road. It was nice and quiet, and just what we were looking for. Hot tub was great after a day on the mountain. If you go in the winter, you can take a nice hike behind the house for your very own fresh powder lines. Plowing on the road to the house wasn't great, but was no problem in an SUV.

Cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin. Very private at the end of a dead end street in a quiet neighborhood, set back from the road and surrounded by trees and forest. Hot tub gets very hot which I like since most tubs aren't hot enough for me. Fully equipped kitchen with double oven and everything you would need to cook great meals. Very close to grocery store, Starbucks, Kmart and good restaurants too. Hike up the trail behind the cabin for spectacular views of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding mountains. You can see all the way to North shore on a clear day. Then snowboard or ski back down to the cabin for a mini backcountry experience. Awesome! Cabin is cozy but fit our family of four perfect. Gas stove/fireplace gets the cabin nice and toasty very quick. Owner communicated clearly and responded instantly to a couple questions I had. We will definitely stay here again as the amenities can't be beat for the price. Thank you.

Wonderful Property for Tahoe Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely happy with the cabin and had a great time in Tahoe. The cabin is in a great part of Tahoe, close to stores and fun spots too. When we arrived, the cabin was very clean and provided us with all the things we needed for our stay. In all, it was a fun and comfortable place to stay and I would not think twice about booking it again. Lastly, South Lake Tahoe is a place for relaxing or going out too. To that point, the cabin is close to several outdoor spots and fun nightlife places too. Overall, thanks so much!

Great cabin with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

It's got the best of everything. In this cozy cabin, you walk on the deck to see the hot tub: amazing! Through the door is the kitchen: gas stove, any kitchen supply you can think of, 23 ended up cooking for most of our meals. The living room is right off the kitchen with a great TV and surround sound. The bathroom has a nice shower. The upstairs has an extra bed with games to play. The master bedroom includes a nice bed and decen amount of closet space. The key to this place is that you feel out in the woods, but only a 5 minute drive from the town. Loved the place!

Beautiful place to rest and regroup.

  • 5 of 5

We loved outstay at the cabin. I wish we would have stayed longer, but we already had reservations and tickets in vagas. The house was wonderful, we had stayed in a teardrop trailer in Yosemite for a week before, so it was niceto be inside and just regroup. But we didnt get much of a chance to do sight seeing. We would deffinatly stay here again for a longer visit.
