I love sharing my cabin on Airbnb and just ask that guests treat it like it's their own. Leaving the house tidy really sends the message that the home was treated with love and care.
Guests have access to a custom built ski locker in the front entryway for gear storage, the hot tub and all parts of the cabin. The basement is locked for owner storage.

Other Things to Note
I love sharing my cabin on Airbnb and just ask that guests treat it like it's their own. A few details to note:
The house usually has condiments such as ketchup, mustard, syrup, flower, sugar, salt and pepper. Coffee filters are v shape.
We do not stock up on firewood so please buy some at the store in town before your arrival if you wish to light a fire. I recommend also buying a fire starter and newspaper to get the fire going.
A shovel is located in the front entryway for snow removal as well as a brush to wipe snow off of your car. Please return these to the closet when finished for the next guest.
We do have plow service for the driveway and shovel service after a big snow storm.
The cabin was built in 1968(!) and the central heating doesn't quite do the job. Space heaters are available in each room for extra warmth. The bedding is very cozy and comfortable for winter months.
The house is 3 levels, with stairs leading to the bedrooms (both the 3 main and 1 bonus). The cabin is approximately 1,800 square feet.
1. NO pets and NO smoking. Thank you!
2. People other than those in the Tenant party may not stay overnight in the property.
3. Keep the property and all furnishings and appliances in good order.
4. Parking: Vehicles are to be parked in designated parking areas only.
5. Housekeeping: While linens and bath towels are included in the House, daily maid service is not included in the rental rate.
6. Hot Tub: Use at your own risk. The hot tub is cleaned prior to Tenants arrival and the cost is included in your cleaning fee. Remember when not using the hot tub, leave cover on so hot tub will stay warm. Do not change the temperature of the hot tub please.
7. Fireplace: Only wood and paper may be burned in the fireplace. NEVER LEAVE A FIRE UNATTENDED.
8. Water and Electricity: The water from the tap is some of the best in the world so it is safe to drink. The house is located in the mountains and the electricity can be fussy especially during a storm. It’s not uncommon to loose power in a winter storm so always be prepared.

This cabin was perfect! Great location and if you have little ones, it's fully stocked with highchair, crib and toys. The location is very central for squaw and the convenience of Tahoe City for restaurants and groceries. We loved it!
Elana's cabin was perfect! It is exactly as described (cute and comfortable). The kitchen was well outfitted and it was easy to cook anything with the supplies that were provided. The bedrooms were comfortably furnished and we call commented that we got the best sleep that we had had in ages. The hot tub was clean and ready to go when we arrived. I genuinely could not have asked for more. Elena, thanks for hosting us!
Elena's cabin was perfect for our group of 8 over New Year's. The location was exactly what we needed and very convenient for those who wanted to ski Alpine and Squaw. Elena was super responsive and easier to communicate with. We have already talked about wanting to rent this cabin again in the future!
Elena was a great host, communicative from the very start, months prior to our actual stay. When we finally checked in and experienced problems with the hot water in the upstairs bathroom, Elena was very apologetic, and got someone out to repair the problem right away. Also one of the two sinks upstairs had no hot water running at all. We had a few more instances of hot water shortage thereafter, but the problem seemed to be mostly resolved and we were able to enjoy hot showers after skiing all day.
The house was very comfortable, as described, mostly up to date, although the heating system was not great. The upstairs bedrooms (and especially the upstairs bathroom) would get extremely warm and we had to crack the windows a bit, while the mid-level living area was comfortable, and the downstairs "bonus room" was frigid. There are space heaters provided, but only one humidifier, and we felt there should be one in each bedroom. Otherwise the house was well stocked with everything we needed, including shampoo and soap, as well as spices and condiments probably left from previous guests. Lots of pillows, blankets and throws too! The large screen TV was well positioned in the comfie living area for evening enjoyment. The fireplace was great, once we discovered the flu needed to be opened (this was suggested in the owner's notes to us, but since we were offline we couldn't access the notes, we managed to smoke up the house before realizing this!)
Unfortunately the wifi system never stayed connected, we had to constantly connect with an ethernet cord, and if my geek brother hadn't been with us we would have remained offline the entire stay. When I mentioned this to Elena she suggested we turn on/off the router to reset it, but honestly this never worked, and my brother seems to think a new router may be in order.
Location of the house was good, near Squaw and Alpine Meadows, and close to the lake and town center, and easy to find off the main road. There is no garage, but the mud room at the entrance was perfect for keeping boots and helmets warm overnight.
Overall we enjoyed our stay and appreciate the care Elena shows and her commitment to making our stay comfortable.
Elena’s house is an amazing escape, a beautiful house nestled in the quaint little town of Tahoe City. I highly recommend her beautiful rustic cabin. The pictures are extremely accurate and everything worked perfectly. And even though I’m a moron and left my iPad under the bed, Elena was kind enough to FedEx it immediately. Great house. Great Host.
Elena's house was great to stay in, cozy with lots of character. It is conveniently located to sunnyside, shopping and restaurants. Elena is very responsive and a great host, we would be happy to stay at her home again anytime.
We had a wonderful extended weekend in Tahoe with Elena's cabin as our home base. The eight of us (plus a baby) comfortably stayed, going on a couple of hikes in the area and enjoying dinner with a view of the lake and mountains at Wolfdale's and Christie Hill. While the little one was starting to crawl and we didn't need to worry about safety, the cabin was set up with baby gates, toys, a crib, and even a bathtub (although it wasn't littered with obvious baby stuff for those without kids). Outside was beautiful, large pine trees with pine cones scattered around, the option for grilling, hot tubbing and a fire pit. The inside was wonderful too: comfortable beds with fluffy down, good quality towels, and the kitchen was set up so we didn't have anything to worry about for hosting.
