The Space

** 3 night min during holidays and discounted dates please. 10% tax will be included to rate. Sorry but it is the county tax and we want to pay our taxes :) **

Sorry we would like to get our skiing in this winter as we'll :) One month max stay during winter ski season please.

Beautiful and sunny 2 story old Tahoe wood cabin/house at what we think is the best location. Summer: Park the car at the house and walk around instead of being stuck in traffic. Even better hop on a bike. It is very Walkable!

Winter: 5 minutes from Homewood, 15 minutes from Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows ski resorts.

About 6 houses from the lake (Sunnyside Resort Beach Bar Dock), a few houses from the paved bike path and Firesign Cafe (best breakfast) and Spoon Restaurant. Sunnyside Market (opening soon) is only a few houses away.

15 mins from Squaw Valley USA ski resort, Alpine Meadows ski resort, and 10 mins from Homewood ski resorts. About 5 mins to Granilbakken ski/sledding area/adventure park zip ling (voted #1 Tahoe activity on Tripadvisor). The cabin is opposite of the VERY bad traffic from truckee/east tahoe city to the ski resorts so we get to and back from the ski resorts alot faster. You can also drive to Northstar, Sugarbowl, Diamond Peak, and Mount Rose ski resorts.

Leave the car at the house, avoid the summertime traffic/parking fees, and walk to Sunnyside resort/beach, Firesign Cafe, Kilner Park, paved bike paths, etc during summer. Walk to Westshore Sports to rent paddleboards, kayaks, boats, etc.
Completely private and separate house from other house (only shares driveway). House is on Pineland Drive and West Lake Blvd (streetview listed on abnb incorrect).

2 bedrooms (upstairs) with a wood fireplace, 2 separate stairways, Pottery Barn dining table seats 4, 2 barstools, and large kitchen.

Bedroom 1 has a queen sized bed, bedroom 2 is a loft bedroom with 2 twin beds. In between the rooms is a large walk through closet. Living room has a pullout sofa and futon.

One bathroom downstairs. It has a full size washer and dryer. Gorgeous wood walls throughout house. Large porch with rocking chair. Wood fireplace. Gated property. Paved private parking on property. Narrow stairs. Lower ceilings upstairs and in one of the 2 stairways. Wall heater and wood fireplace downstairs.

Our toddler loves to play in the large open space in front and in back of the house. Sip hot chocolate while sitting on the rocking chair on the porch or large backyard.

Heating: the cabin's main source of heat is the fireplace in the living room which is the best fireplace I have ever had. The upstairs rooms have plug in heaters and the dining room has a wall heater. The people sleeping downstairs may want to keep the fireplace going to maintain the heat downstairs. We havent had to use heaters during the Spring or Summer.

**** potty trained pets considered but must stay downstairs - $50 additional cleaning fee *****
**** 10 percent TOT (tax by county of Placer) and $100 cleaning fee to be added to rate ****

746 sq ft downstairs, 458 sq ft upstairs.

This is a old tahoe style cabin with updates. You must be cool with what comes with the charm that comes with old houses. There is no dishwasher. There is no central heating. Great for people who like to be close to nature and want to relax.

Discounts for 7 days or more during low season. Monthly rates available. Please feel free to email us for holiday rates.

The Neighborhood

About 15 mins from Squaw Valley USA ski resort, Alpine Meadows ski resort, and 10 mins from Homewood ski resorts. About 5 mins to Granilbakken ski area/tubing. Opposite of the bad traffic from truckee/east tahoe city to the ski resorts. You can also drive to Northstar, Sugarbowl, Diamond Peak, and Mount Rose ski resorts.

The best location in Lake Tahoe, 4 houses from Lake Tahoe, about 6 houses from Sunnyside Resort(lake access). Walk to Sunnyside Market, Firesign Cafe, Spoon Restaurant, Westshore Sports, Kilner Park, restaurant, Sunnyside beach. Bike to main drag of Tahoe City and Truckee River. Short drive to Emerald Bay. Live music and sunset dinners at Sunnyside on many days.

This is a great year round North Shore location at a very affordable price. Drive to South Lake Tahoe Harrahs and Harvey's casinos or to the Lake Tahoe area casinos such as Crystal Bay casino or CalNeva. You can also drive to Reno (shopping, casinos, pho, buffets, shoes, Circus Circus). Bike/drive to Truckee River and River Ranch where there is tubing during the summer.

Getting Around

Tahoe Bus TART, Tahoe TAXI, bike paths, walking hiking trails, tubing at Truckee River (summer if there is enough water)

Other Things to Note

Our dream house was purchased in 2014 because we wanted a place for our toddler daughter to actually have a yard to play in and experience the outdoors unlike our small apartment (aka "shoebox") in the City. It's great that she can play on the large property, build a snowman, gather pine cones, ride her scooter, enjoy biking the bike path around the lake with us, and we can walk to the lake. The house has a large front yard and huge backyard away from the street since it is a fenced property. The gated property is almost half an acre!

We could not ask for a better location. We think it is the best location in all of Tahoe. We have the ability to walk to Sunnyside and the lake is only a few houses away. Amazing world class ski resorts are only a short drive away. There are very few places in Tahoe where we can walk to a store, restaurants and the lake while being so close to the ski resorts.

It is the only home we own so please take care of it so that our family, friends, and guests can enjoy it for years to come. We love this place and hope that you will too.

Please contact us immediately if there is an emergency or damage. If there is anything missing or item you think we should get please let us know. Our place is a work in progress (not the 4 seasons or Hyatt) but we hope to get a hot tub and other cool items in the next few years.
