About this listing

The space

This is a beautiful studio above our garage with a private entrance, full kitchen, hardwood floors, and sky lights that give it a bright open feeling. The queen bed is located in the comfortable loft, you are welcome to use the blow up queen mattress if you need extra sleeping space. Keep in mind there is a steep ladder (shown in picture) to get to the sleeping loft. We supply games, books, a DVD player with videos.

Our Neighborhood is located just 2 miles from Tahoe City where there are plenty of restaurants and shops to choose from. We are just a couple blocks away from the Tahoe City Nordic center which has many beautiful cross country ski and snow shoeing trails. Lake Tahoe is just a short distance away. If you are coming to ski at one of the local mountains we are only a 15 min drive to Squaw, Alpine Meadows, Homewood and Northstar.

If you are coming in the summer months we are just a short drive to many beautiful beaches on Lake Tahoe. There is hiking and mountain biking close by. You can get on the bike path and ride to town and along the Truckee river.

We are a family of 5 with three daughters and we have lived in our home for 17 years. We enjoy skiing, hiking, swimming, paddle boarding, and biking in Tahoe. We can help you discover why we think living here is paradise!

My husband and I enjoyed our stay in this bright and cozy cabin while visiting Tahoe City for a wedding. Lynda and John are wonderful hosts and people. Their place is equipped with everything you might need for a very comfortable stay. Location is also perfect - a short drive or bike ride to everything you might need, and super close to different parts of the lake. The studio is built on top of a detached garage and is a loft style which is pretty cool. You have to climb a ladder to get to bed, or you could sleep downstairs on a comfy futon. Hoping we can come back here during the winter for some fun in the snow.

Loved this sweet studio! Had everything you need from beach towels, to everyday towels and a well-stocked kitchen area to cook if needed. A great location to different parts of the lake, and such a nice & quiet area. Lynda & John were so kind and very helpful our entire time - the perfect hosts!

Our stay at Lynda and John's place was perfect. They messaged a day or two before to confirm our check-in, and their instructions were clear and easy. There was a designated parking spot for us in the driveway and the door was unlocked making it easy to get in. A bottle of wine was on the counter which was perfect for our home-cooked dinner on our last night. The space was bigger than expected and although the loft bed took some getting used to, the ladder was sturdy and our sleep was comfortable. Note: they do have dogs but are kept to the main house. Thank you for such a pleasant stay for our Memorial day weekend!

Great spot for a weekend getaway and way better than a hotel for the wedding we attended at Squaw. Great location near Tahoe City and KB-- as advertised.

We enjoyed our stay here. The apartment was clean and stocked with games,books and DVDs. There was ground coffee and a full size coffee maker which was important to us. Set in a beautiful neighborhood and close to hiking trails and beaches. Definitely worth the money.

Wonderful, bright spacious studio above the garage. Fully functional kitchen. Because the bed is in the loft, it feels like a 1BR place. 2 miles from downtown tahoe city with many restaurants and shops, local bus will take you around
