Our cabin has been our hideout in Lake Tahoe for almost 15 years, set just two blocks off of North Lake Boulevard in the center of Tahoe City. We are an easy walk to everything this awesome little mountain town has to offer.
There are two bed rooms, 1BR with Queen bed, 2nd BR with 2 Queen beds, and a convertible full futon in the living room.
The bathroom is tiled with a stall shower and we installed a large (30 gal) hot water heater so hot showers are plentiful for all. The kitchen features marble counters, a gas range, dish washer, garbage disposal and lots of pots and pans. Also a dining table with extension leaves for group dinners. We often cook for larger groups, usually with the gas grill on the side deck that opens off the kitchen. There is hot tub off the back deck.
There is WIFI and a 42 inch LCD with direct TV and Chromecast connected for streaming movies and such. The stereo also has a pin jack for connecting your favorite music device or laptop. There are also several USB wall outlets built in, able to charge any device as long as you have a cord. We tend leave lots of chargers lying about, you are welcome to use them, but they should not leave the house (please!)
If you check the (website hidden) map you see we are literally in the center of Tahoe City, the house is in the flat section of town so there are no killer hills to walk or bike between us and all the restaurants, bars and shopping in Tahoe City. Safeway Plaza is 3 blocks away, as is Commons beach and lake access. There are bars and coffee shops even closer and the Tahoe City Golf course butts up to Grove Street just ½ block outside the back door.
The bike path runs for miles and the top of the hill past the house offers direct access to miles of national forest and fire trails (personally I drive up and bike from the top.)
We love the cabin because it is central to the town of Tahoe City. You can seriously spend a week here and never need your car.

Interaction with Guests
Mostly Electronic. We are happy to help in any way, but we do not live in the area. We have a local friend who lives in the house part time (when not rented) and is able to swing by if there are any issues as well as neighbors that check in on the property. But most of our guests do not see us or him during their stay.
Tahoe City ROCKS! I lived there for years, our cabin is centrally located and you can walk all over town, restaurants/shopping and public lake access
There are buses, cabs are impossible, you can bike in the summer, otherwise it is a car town.

Trip & Anita's cabin was perfect for our group of four! The whole cabin has a wonderful, cozy feel and they've put a ton of thought into the little things that make or break a stay. They've equipped the house with tons of towels, spare phone chargers, easy internet, a chromecast for the TV, most any kitchen essential you may need, etc etc etc, and even left us a bottle of wine to kick our stay off right! It's immediately clear that they deeply care about the space and making sure their guests have the best possible experience.
I've stayed in a few airbnbs around the Tahoe area and this is easily the best. Most others feel like slap-dash rentals, sufficient to lodge a group for a ski weekend or beach day, with manufactured decor that kills the charm. Trip & Anita's place, on the other hand, feels genuine, cozy — exactly the kind of place I want to stay when I'm looking for the kind of retreat we all associate with Tahoe.
We had a wonderful time staying at Trip and Anita's cabin. It was clean, comfortable, and in super convenient location. We easily drove to Squaw and Alpine for skiing and took long walks through Tahoe City. Our family of 4 (2 kids) + 1 (dog) enjoyed the accommodations, which had everything we needed. Contacting Trip for reservations and details about the home were straightforward and easy. We look forward to our next trip to Tahoe City and the possibility of staying here again. Thanks Trip and Anita!
Our stay at Trip and Anita's house in Tahoe was awesome. The place was perfect for our ski weekend getaway and all you really need: good common space and kitchen and three comfortable beds. They left us a bottle of wine which was very nice. The location was great and walking distance to shops, bars and restaurants, and a short drive to Squaw and Alpine Meadows. The hot tub was a welcomed amenity after a long day of skiing, though we could never really get it warm enough and didn't feel the water was as warm as the tub listed. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks Trip and Anita!
I headed up to Tahoe with three friends for a weekend get away at the end of a vacation week. This was my first experience with airbnb and it was a very positive one, we all had a great time. One of the things I liked was that it had so many creature comforts, I didn't have to bring half of my kitchen utensils on vacation with me to cook a meal, it was well equipped with everything I could have wanted. For a small place, it felt quite roomy and everything was comfortable, I got great sleep! I loved the hot tub as well, perfect at night with a nearly full moon out. One of my friends brought her dog up there and we utilized most of the dog accommodations as well. The only thing I was underwhelmed by was the one roll of toilet paper there, but that was easily remedied :) I am looking forward to staying at this cabin again someday!
We loved staying in Tahoe City in this sweet little cabin. It was very convenient, clean and comfy. Lots of great amenities like a nice hot tub, plenty of towels, comfortable beds, dog supplies (dog bed, dishes, toys, dog towels etc...) and great cook ware, appliances, supplies... everything you need! Its cozy, but can fit 5 people quite comfortably. There is a slight lack of privacy; but if you are out all day on the lake or on the slopes, this doesn't matter much and the neighbors are super friendly anyway. We had some nice interactions with them. We really appreciated how easy it was to find and get in and out of -as we have some houses in tahoe that have had steep "drive-ways of death" .... this is not the case here. Its super accessible and walking distance to the store. Trip and Anita were pleasant and easy to communicate with. We would definitely go back!
Beautiful home! Perfectly stocked with absolutely everything you could think of. We loved grilling for dinner, and then sitting in the hot tub under the stars. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
