Get comfortable in a renovated Tahoe cabin with a view of the lake and a private home owners beach. Hiking or mountain biking through Paige Meadows, and in the winter time you are 10 minutes from Homewood, 20 minutes from Squaw or Alpine Meadows.
This is an upgraded A-frame, just 2 miles south of Tahoe City. You'll be very comfortable within the context of a traditional Tahoe cabin.
There are 3 bedrooms: 1 downstairs (twin bed with a trundle), and 2 upstairs (one King, one Queen).
The front deck has a picnic table with chairs and a gas BBQ.
For hiking or mountain biking, you can start from the house and explore Paige Meadows. Or, you can park at the Home Owners beach and take the bike path South to Tahoma, or North to Tahoe City and continue on to Squaw Valley beside the Truckee River.
Winter. Note that the house does not have a garage. There is a 60 foot long path that leads to the house from the parking area; in the winter the path will most likely be covered in snow (fresh or old). There are about 12 steps up to the front door, and these steps will most likely also be covered in snow (fresh or old). A shovel will be available to clean the steps.
In winter it's best to assume that there will be a snow storm during your stay, which may require the use of snow chains on your car to drive to and from the house.
Summer. The Lake Tahoe Park Association home owners property provides free access to over three acres of lake front property with 850 feet of beach, 2 piers, boat buoys, picnic facilities, volleyball court, horseshoe pits, lawn area, playground equipment, basketball court and open space - just a 5 minute drive from the house.
Interaction with Guests
You can expect me to be available for any questions you have, but I would otherwise not be bothering you.
The house is in a neighborhood which is 500 feet above Lake Tahoe, which not only offers panoramic views of Lake Tahoe but is also quiet and safely removed from the day to day tourist traffic as it is near the end of a dead end road.
The house sits back from the road on a very large lot with 4 standalone houses.
We had a great time spending my birthday weekend at this house. The house was everything that we expected and more. Great location, warm, quiet and felt like home away from home. The surrounding neighbors were very nice as well. I really enjoyed the lake view and the hiking trails nearby. Mark was a great host. He was very accommodating and flexible since we came on a weekend where a snowstorm hit. He provided us with great detailed directions/instructions on everything. He was also very quick in responding to the messages we had.
We will definitely be returning to this house in the future.
Mark's cabin was a delightful home away from home for 5 of us including a child. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful with convenient access to multiple trails/meadows at higher elevation, and central location to the west shore. The cabin was set up with everything we needed. Since we brought meals to share, appreciated having the fully stocked kitchen and small things like oil, salt, flour. Clear and responsive communication with Mark. The cabin was exactly as described and in the photos, and very clean. This first time using air bnb was a pleasure, and something we'll definitely use again.
The place was great! Perfect for a small group and with a great view of the lake. A great location too... Close to town and resorts.
I had a wonderful time at Mark's cabin. The cabin was warm and cozy with a beautiful view of the lake and exceeded my expectations. Mark was also very responsive and provided all of the relevant information for the stay along with great recommendations of what to do and where to eat.
This was by far the best house we rent for skiing. It is newly furnished, cosy and clean. Mark is a great host and we felt very welcome. The view of the lake is terrific you wake up in the master bedroom watching the sunrise. Sure enough we forgot something and Mark sent it to us. Thanks again for this.
We had a wonderful holiday weekend at this beautiful and cozy house. Great location to downtown and Squaw valley. It has everything we need. The owner provided detail info of the house and responded to all the messages very quickly. I would highly recommend this home.
Great house with awesome view! Like the set up as well! Very quiet at night!
