Herb's place is a terrific value. It has a very friendly interior, in what my wife calls "classic Tahoe." Lots of knotty pine. It has a very well stocked kitchen, was super clean and you'll really enjoy the hot tub. And if it's necessary to contact the host, we found that he responded in minutes when we had a question about check out time.

This is a great cabin for a large group! I stayed there with 8 friends for a weekend and we were very comfortable. There's a big and well-equipped kitchen and a dining table with enough seating for a big group. The living room has an amazing fireplace and a lot of comfortable seating which made for a great spot to hang out and play games/watch movies etc.

Great mountain cabin! Had a large group for a weekend ski trip and the place had ample room for everyone and a nice layout for socializing. The place is rustic and comfortable--exactly what we were looking for.

If your looking for a Cabin, this is the place. We didn't have power for the entire trip due to an awesome amount of snow and we were still able to keep warm between the wood stove and two fire places. We also loved how close it was to the Homewood skiing resort.

The cabin is very nice, and during a good snow storm was great to stay and get away from everyone.

I have lived and worked all over the world .. (and still work internationally) but have called San Francisco home since 1992. (so happy to show anyone around the City!)

I work in internet/software.

I have two daughters: one 13 yrs old (8th grade) and one 22 yrs old (4th yr at Stanford).

I am an avid athlete .. mainly in the mountains: snowboarding, skiing, mtn biking, climbing. (so I know all of the great runs, trails, climbs in Tahoe!)

I love to cook .. so our cabin has a very well equipped kitchen. (great pots/pans, knives, appliances, etc.)

I grew up in a family that owned/operated hotels and apartments .. so: 1) I know how to fix things .. and 2) I appreciate great beds! While most place in Tahoe receive 'leftover' secondhand furniture, I had all of the beds custom-made by the same manufacturer and specs as the Four Seasons hotel chain. (we all spend about one-third of our lives in bed .. so it better be comfortable!) Guaranteed: you will love the beds. ;-)
