Our cabin has been our hideout in Lake Tahoe for almost 18 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, 1 BR with Queen bed, 2nd BR with 2 Queen beds, and a convertible full futon in the living room. While the cabin accommodates up to 8, that maximum is best for families with children - it's not really suitable for 8 adults.

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, dishwasher, 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 a hot tub on the back deck.

There is WIFI and a 46 inch LCDTV with a DVD player and Chromecast connected for streaming movies and such. There is NO Local TV or cable, but anything you can stream on your device you can Chromecast. There is a Chromecast audio connected to the reciever in the livingroom for streamimng music. 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 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.

Well behaved Dogs are welcome, but must not be left unattended unless crated. NO dogs in the smaller bedroom. It is used for for dialysis and needs to be kept free on pet hair. You will be charged for extra cleaning if that happens. Our yard is NOT fenced.

House is suitable for 4/6 adults plus kids...NOT 8 adults.

Post-Stay Information

HOUSEKEEPING PROCEDURE – Housekeeper will arrive at check-out time. Guests are responsible for placing all trash in the bear box (and properly disposing of trash that does not fit in the bear box), as well as for placing soiled dishes in the dishwasher and turning the dishwasher on.

CLEANING: may occur additional cleaning charges if the cabin is left exceptionally dirty. (Trash not taken out, dishes left in sink, etc.)

CHECK-OUT PROCEDURE – The unit should be left locked. Please check all doors!

LATE CHECK-OUT PENALTY – A fee of $50 will be assessed for late check-out.

HOUSE SUPPLIES – The house generally contains minimal supplies of toilet paper, dish soap, dishwasher detergent, condiments, and trash and recycling bags, though this is not guaranteed; guests are responsible for additional supplies of such products.

PARKING – Parking is limited to four (4) vehicles. Vehicles are to be parked in the driveway only. Parking on the road is not permitted. Parking on the grass will get you a shotgun introduction to the neighbor. Any illegally parked cars are subject to towing; applicable fines/towing fees are the sole responsibility of the vehicle owner.

HOT TUB – No children under the age of twelve (12) permitted in the hot tub at any time. When using the hot tub, remember there is a certain health risk associated with this facility. Use at your own risk. DO NOT STAND ON THE HOT TUB COVER. Hot tub covers are for insulation purposes and are not designed to support a person or persons. They will break, and you may be charged for replacement. Remember when not using the hot tub to leave the cover on so hot tub will stay warm.

FIRE PIT – There is a small fire pit you are welcome to use, but ONLY in the driveway NOT on the decks or in the yard! Forest fire danger is a major concern so for safety reasons. We “red-neck" it a little and keep the fire pit on the blacktop. There is also an outdoor hose on the corner of the house for completely dousing the fire.

GAS GRILL – Please use grill with caution: it's a gas grill, shut off the gas when you are done. There is a spare as well, in case you run out just switch the tanks. But please let us know (so we can refill the spare).

GARBAGE – Please place all garbage inside the bear box. Blue bags indicate recycling and white bags are for regular trash. Trash pick-up is on Thursdays. Renters are responsible for properly disposing of any trash that will not fit in the two cans inside the bear box. These boxes are not for show, there are bears in the area; if trash is left out the bears will be attracted to it. If any extra trash is left behind, charges will be deducted from your deposit. Trust us, DO NOT LEAVE any food in cars or outside the house (yes a bear can smell it in your cooler.) Please close your car windows at night...or you might find a raccoon or two napping in the seat they shredded.

COMMUNITY- Please be respectful of our neighbors. This is a quiet mountain community and most of our street are locals and families. They are great neighbors so please treat them with respect.

WRITTEN EXCEPTIONS – Any exceptions to the above policies must be approved in writing in advance. We are very accommodating as long as we talk about exceptions and approve them in advance!

The cabin was comfy and had everything we needed to make it feel like home. Peaceful neighboorhood so it was really relaxing after a full day of activities. We cooked breakfast every morning, packed our lunch and went out for the day. It was an un usual hot week in Tahoe according to others. Easiest way to cool off the house to sleep was to put a fan in the bathroom to bring in the cool air. It got cool enough and was perfect sleeping weather. For the condition of the cabin, it was pricey compared to others but the dog friendly aspect is a big plus for dog owners and warrants the price to have your fur-babies with you.

Awesome location within walking distance of many restaurants and the lake. Trip and Anita were very prompt in replying and friendly. Washer, dryer, dishwasher, hot water-full amenities.

The location of the cabin is amazing! You are off the main road, so secluded enough to enjoy the Tahoe wilderness but are still so close to town, restaurants, shops and the lake that it's perfect. We had a great time and recommend staying here for anyone wanting to get away and relax!

Lovely centrally located cabin. Perfect for small groups of folks. The hot tub is spacious and soothing and the two welcoming bottles of wine were a beautiful touch.
