Situated in Incline Village in a quiet cul de sac near Lake Tahoe, this cosy studio apartment has all the amenities you need for a perfect vacation.
Enjoy the the filtered lake view from the large, sunny wrap-around deck (you have exclusive use of it) or take a stroll on the many forest trails that lead directly from your front door.
We offer free use of a double kayak for frolicking in the water as well as beach chairs, etc. The nearest private beach is a mile away (we provide two beach passes worth $12 each for those). There are other lovely public beaches a little further away too. We're happy to help you get oriented and we'll tell you how to get to some of the lovely coves that are still not well-known.
We can also get discounted access to stand up paddles. Ask us for details.
And we have mountain bikes (with helmets) for you to borrow and enjoy exploring the trails right behind the house, or further afield.
Now that Winter is not far off, know that we provide free use of snow shoes for hiking, and also winter coats, gloves and boots if you don't have all the winter gear you need.
Distance to nearest ski resorts is as follows: Diamond Peak - 2 mins, Mt Rose, 15 mins, Northstar 25 mins, Alpine Meadows 35 mins, Heavenly 40 mins, Squaw Valley 45mins,
We're happy to help you orient yourselves and discover some of Tahoe's hidden secrets. We can get you discounts at the local spa too, and can recommend the best restaurants for your budget.
And the large deck above the unit is all yours. You have exclusive use which includes BBQ, a teak table set with four chairs, plus two comfy rocking chairs so you can enjoy a rest while taking in the view (you can see glimpses of the lake from there)
Kitchenette (with full fridge, cutlery, crockery, toaster, hot-plate, kettle, microwave)
Comfy queen bed
Option to add a third person (fold out mattress)
(two night minimum - but last minute one night bookings are a possibility)
The apartment is just mile from the lake and a mile from Incline Village shops and restaurants. It's an easy mile walk to the Lake, Lone Eagle Grill (at Lake), Big Water Grill (fabulous view of Lake) Sierra Nevada College, Hyatt Spa, Recreation Center. And the famous Calneva resort is just 10 minutes drive away (setting for all sorts of delicious stories about Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe and gangsters). Lots to enjoy! Also now that summer's here there is live outdoor music at King's Beach (15 mins away) and Tahoe City (30 min away). We'll help you find out more about what's going on so you can have a fabulous stay!
We are animal lovers and welcome well-behaved furry guests. The apartment is at the end of a forest-surrounded a cul de sac and very safe - dogs can run off the lead. Very quiet too.

We had a lovely time at Rachel and Benjamin's studio. It was cozy and warm and perfect for our weekend of skiing. Benjamin stayed up late on Friday to show us around when we got in after driving up from SF. We used the toaster oven to make cornbread after a long day of skiing and then fell asleep like babies in the big huge comfy bed!
Thanks again Benjamin for all your advice and gear. We had a great time!
It was fabulous. Cute, had all the necessities, and Rachel was a sweetheart. She was on top of communication and made logistics a breeze. Great location to get to sledding and ski spots. Wonderful time! Thank you!
This place was amazing. It was just enough space for my boyfriend and me for our three night stay in Incline. We got in late Friday night, and Rachel was very accommodating (giving us good directions, leaving the door unlocked, and turning the heaters on for us. We had a great time skiing and coming back to our gorgeous getaway spot. We hope we can make it back someday.
Rachel and Benjamin were such friendly and thoughtful couple hosts! They kindly helped us to make sure we had a nice stay.
Shoveled the street in the morning before we leaving for snowboarding, helped us get a tire chain in heavy snow, and such... Thank you so much! We had a wonderful time :)
This studio is in a great location. It is clean, the decor is lovely, the kitchenette has everything you need, the parking is perfect right at your door.
The hosts are friendly and greet you with a smile and offer to answer any questions you may have.
I would highly recommend this property.
This place was perfect for my girlfriend and I. We spent a nice long weekend here and had an amazing time in North Lake Tahoe. The unit is very clean and cozy and centrally located close to all Lake Tahoe attractions. We absolutely loved it.
Rachel our host was so charming and welcoming. Our hosts gave us parking CURBSIDE to our room, so nice in the freezing cold. The unit is on a beautiful residential street, we felt like locals. Heating unit in room super effective. The room cozy, bed comfy, and layout wonderful. Small but very functional. Kitchen well equipped. We asked for games and she even went next door to borrow games from neighbors for us! There were snow boots and poles available for our use (we didn't have time) and I highly recommend and hope to return to Rachel's AIRBNB! Tami, Paso Robles
Rachel and Benjamin were great hosts. The room is cozy, warm, small, and perfect place to pass out at the end of a long day.
Thank you for the respite.
Rachel was a very gracious host. We had a nice relaxing 3 night stay at her and Benjamin's studio. The space is small and cozy and well equipped with all that we needed. There are hiking trails directly behind the property and Diamond Peak ski area (which seemed like a smaller, more local place) is around the corner. A good place to come and unwind.
