Comfortable, open living space.Old school wood burning fireplace! (or you can just use the central heating.)  They're good for s'mores if you're too lazy to get the BBQ going. And, oh yes, cable TV with a DVD player and dozens of DVDs to choose from, and even an older model X-Box for your retro gaming thrills.

Description

Looking for a cabin with character? Welcome to Pine Cone! Ours is an awesome A-frame with a wood-burning fireplace, and original retro décor – cozy and funky, with all the modern comforts of home. Close to HOA beach, Firesign, and Sunnyside resort.

In the heart of Sunnyside, Pine Cone is a short walk to our private HOA beach and the best brunch at the lake.

Leave your city-slicker granite counter tops at home – we have what’s important: our Saturday Supper dessert cabinet contains an ice cream maker, sundae bar, fondue, and of course s’mores. (And s’meeces, the Pine Cone S’mores 3.0) Plus of course everything else you need to make yourself at home: fully equipped kitchen, laundry, etc. etc.

The basics & bonuses: 3 bedrooms sleep 15 people. Dogs welcome! Wifi, printer, and standard office supplies included for you workerbees. Shampoo, toothpaste, hair dryer basics provided (though ironing board and such fancy big-city accoutrements are not – this is Tahoe!). Deck, BBQ, beach blankets, board games, DVD player, dozens of DVDs, puzzles, cookbook collection for your Saturday supper planning, beach books, a guitar, and more.

The beach: we'll give you a key to the private homeowners association beach, featuring volleyball, basketball, and horseshoe courts; green grass and shady benches; clean bathrooms (very important); weddings to crash all weekend long; and Tahoe’s finest skipping stones. (Forget how to skip rocks? You ARE in need of a getaway!)

The neighborhood: Sunnyside is hot for good reason! A few blocks from the docks, we’re the one spot on this side of the lake that’s walking distance from not one but two rockin’ brunch places. While removed from the mean streets (ha!) of Tahoe City, when you forget something at the grocery store we’re only 6 minutes down the road. South Lake has curling and all (message Colleen if you want to try), but it's Vegas compared to this: North Tahoe is casino-free pockets of quiet cabins from another era, with more dogs and kids littering the middle of the street than cars. Oh, and it’s an easy 3.5hrs from SF, assuming you miss traffic and drive like we do.

The activities: you really plan more than brunch, beach & wine? Ambitious. Okay, fine: we’ve got the hook-up for that too. We’ll tell you where to rent a boat, find the good hikes, and hop the local watering holes. Look us up on the map and you’ll see: we’re close to biking, river rafting, sledding, skiing, and snowboarding (Squaw, Alpine Meadows, Northstar, Homewood et al.), the Tahoe Rim Trail, and all that outdoorsy goodness. Plus when you get here, you’ll find our binder of local tips that could only be amassed by a family that’s been here 28 years.


Please note a 1-week minimum is required for Christmas and New Year's.

If you'd like to visit, please ensure you have a profile with picture and tell us a bit about the group that's coming and what you're hoping for in your stay.


House Rules
No smoking
Check-in is after 3PM

It's a family neighborhood, so we ask for no noise on the deck after 10pm please. And of course: no smoking!

For children under two, it goes without saying that they should always be supervised otherwise they could crawl off the deck and get stuck on the stairs etc..

Janet, Colleen & Bob User ProfileJanet, Colleen & Bob is a superhost.

We're a Bay Area-based family that's been in Tahoe for over 30 years. Pine Cone was originally purchased as a place for kids to frolic and parents to play and recharge their batteries. We rent Pine Cone to others when we're not using it in the summer and for ski leases, so that you can enjoy it too!

(The profile photo is siblings Kevin & Claire in the lake. We can tell you where to rent a boat so you can freeze your butt off too.)
