The Space

Beautiful pine cabin in the woods of Tahoma. Main floor consists of living room with beautiful stone wood-burning fireplace, kitchen, bedroom (1 Queen), and full bathroom (shower only, no tub). Upstairs is a full-floor attic bedroom (1 Queen, 2 Twin) with a half-bath. Non-sleeper sofa in living room or additional air mattress (not included) could potentially accommodate one or two additional guests for a total of seven or eight. Newer (installed 2011) gas furnace heats the space comfortably.

Just four blocks from the lake and a short drive to many North and West-Shore ski destinations (Homewood is about 1 mile away), this cabin is right where you want to be in any season; close to fun activities but removed enough to feel like you've escaped. The neighborhood market (PDQ) makes the best sandwiches on earth, has a great selection of DVD rentals perfect for snowy nights, and provides easy access to essentials if you find yourself in need.

A portion of your reservation fee will be donated to Friends of West Shore, a non-profit organization benefitting the preservation of Tahoe's West Shore communities, and to The League to Save Lake Tahoe, an organization that works with California and Nevada government agencies to protect the habitat of the Tahoe Basin.

Please note: second floor is accessed by a ladder staircase (see pictures), not handicap or pet accessible.

Guest Access

You'll have access to the entire home and the property.

Interaction with Guests

Check-in is done by keycode – I find most guests prefer this so you don't have to coordinate with me, worry about running late, etc. You're welcome to arrive anytime after the specified check-in time, even if it's midnight. I am always available by phone, text, or email should you have any questions or concerns during your stay. While I don't live in the area, I do have people nearby who can be on-site in the event of an emergency.

San Francisco, California, United States · Member since November 2011

I'm originally from Marin County, and I moved to San Francisco in 2005. I now divide my time between San Francisco and the beautiful West Shore of Lake Tahoe. I enjoy traveling (34 countries and counting), running, and eating too much Mexican food (if there is such an amount — a theory still being rigorously tested). I'm the oldest of 6 kids and my family is very important to me.
