JULY 4th: 5 night min @ $235 rate/ 3 night min @ $350
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 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. The powered Bose speakers also have 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.

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

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.

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.

We had a fabulous stay at this home! The location is great, just a short walk to town. The place was clean and host provided very organized and clear instructions. We had no issues getting access and really enjoyed the hot tub. I would definitely recommend staying here!
We had a great trip and it was extremely easy communicating with trip and Anita. The house was lovely and in a great location. We were able to walk down to great restaurants and the lakefront in 5 minutes. The neighbors were also great. I would stay here again the next time I travel to Tahoe.
What a fabulous cabin! Not only is the location ideal for walking into town (or walking up the hill to trails), but the property is peaceful and quiet. The layout inside is great too; we were 2 couples and had some privacy with good separation between the 2 rooms.
The whole place is incredibly well-appointed, from the pots/plans/supplies in the kitchen to the stock of toiletries in the bathroom. There's even a huge stash of DVDs to choose from and large flat-screen TV. The hot tub is a fabulous perk (probably more so in the winter though we used it a bit in mid-summer).
They even left us a bottle of wine as a welcome gift, which was lovely to see when we arrived. Plus it's dog friendly and they left some treats for the dog as well. All in all a great place to stay and would definitely stay again.
The cabin is cute, with everything you could need. We initially booked for 4 people, and it would have been perfect for us. We ended up with 6 adults, and it was a bit tight.
The kitchen had every cooking implement you could think of, and there were ample spare toiletries in the bathroom. We felt at home with so many things available to us.
The neighbourhood is nice, short wander into town, and quiet at night.
We communicated withTrip and Anita quite a few times before and during our stay, and their responses were always prompt and informative.
The hot tub was used (and loved!), and as it was unusually hot weather, we spent a lot of time outside on the deck- lovely.
Great option in the Tahoe area
Nice bottle of wine and doggy biscuits. Clean and comfortable cabin. Well appointed kitchen. Nice hot tub. Close to town and lake. Easy to communicate with hosts. Great experience.
Listing and description was accurate. Great place and amenities, clean and well stocked. Would definitely stay here again, and likely will. The location really is tough to beat if you're looking for downtown and lake access without having to worry about getting in a car - so convenient to Tahoe City.
