Beautiful log cabin on the North Shore! Floorplan is very open! Deck was nestled amongst the pine trees! We had a great time here! The house just needed a good spring cleaning for the dust and cobwebs.

Herb's cabin was the perfect place to spend our time in Tahoe. It was spacious, clean, and rustic. The hot tub worked great and there was plenty of space both outside and in to congregate and dine. All of the appliances worked well and the kitchen was fairly well-stocked with basics when we arrived. The cabin isn't secluded, but the trade-off is that you're steps from the lake and minutes by car to great hikes and beaches. It does feel intimate enough on the back porch/patio area. I would definitely stay here again the next time I'm in Tahoe.

My family and close friends stayed in Herbs home and it was PERFECT! We were able to bring our speedboat to Tahoe and being able to park it right on the property was convenient m. The lines of communication were always open and Herb answered all my questions. The home is nestled on a main road BUT it's so quiet and the backyard with the jacuzzi was such a nice touch. Being walking distance to the beach/pier allowed us to go back and forth very easily especially with small kids. Herb has all the appliances, cookware, beach chairs, and beach towels for your stay! One recommendation for guests is if you plan to walk to the beach with small kids - pack a foldable wagon (like the one from Costco, so you can stroll the kids AND pack beach stuff in the wagon when you trek over). Such an amazing location with a very accommodating home and host. Thank you Herb!

Thanks for letting us check in 2 hours early. The house was a perfect size for our family and quite at night even if on the road.

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.

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. ;-)
