The Space

This is my family's only vacation home, and is very dear to our hearts. Its a three bedroom log cabin located in Rubicon Bay on the west shore of Lake Tahoe. It has six beds, and can sleep up to 10 people. Its fairly rustic, but with all the comforts of home... and its a quick 10 minute walk down to the lake.

Its perfect for a family vacation... whether its a long weekend, or an extended multi-week getaway. Bring the pets, the kids, and the snowboards/bathing suits. Lake Tahoe is an amazing place... and having your own comfy place there is the best way to do it.

In the Summer its a great place to relax and have a barbecue after a day of sitting on the beach or hiking in the woods. We're a 20 minute drive from Emerald Bay, D.L. Bliss State Park, and Sugar Pine State Park. We have beach access, and the use of a shared dock on the most beautiful (and yes... SANDY) beach on Lake Tahoe. The water is clear, and the sand is hot. There's a volleyball court, and a swimming area... and a great community of families all summer long.

In the Winter, its a great spot for a family ski retreat. Its a quick 20 minute drive to Homewood Ski Resort... the best-kept secret of the Tahoe Ski community. The lift tickets are affordable, and the lift lines are non-existent. Light up the giant fireplace, and bust out the Catan board (we have all the expansion packs) ... cause there's nothing quite like getting snowed in at a log cabin.

Any time of year, this place is a magical, quiet place to relax. We've loved it since 1984, and we've had hundreds of guests throughout the years who've enjoyed it with us.

House Rules
Check-in is after 6PM

Before you arrive, we'll need to get on the phone in person and go over a few things. I'll tell you where the hidden key is, how to get down to the beach, etc.

Feel free to bring families, pets, in-laws. And please eat, drink, and be merry to whatever level you wish.

If you're renting during the winter... and depending on the level of snow, there may be an added $50 cost to plow the driveway. I can arrange all of that, but we'll need to be in touch about it.
