Beautiful mountain cabin in the trees. A mix of woodsy and modern. Located less than a mile from Lake Tahoe in a truly magical setting adjacent to National Forest land. Close to hiking, biking, sledding, skiing and more.
This is one special place! The cabin is located less than a mile from the Lake and close to a dog beach (Patton Beach), where you can rent kayaks and paddle boards in the summer and even have an excellent breakfast, lunch or a beer. In the winter you can walk out the back door for snow shoeing, skiing and sledding. Only 15 minutes to Northstar and 25 minutes to Squaw and Alpine.
Our home has an open cabin feel with lots of light wood and comfortable furniture. All of the bedding and kitchen equipment are of high quality (not the run down cabin stuff you usually encounter). The upstairs comfortably sleeps 5, and the very comfortable downstairs queen sized sofa bed sleeps 2. The upstairs sleeping configuration is a queen sized bed in one room and the bunkroom has a full and twin sized bunk (sleeps 3).
We just updated and upgraded our cabin by adding a beautiful Hot Springs hot tub/spa to our back deck. It is incredible and has a fabulous private view of the conservancy land behind the house. A great place to relax and look at the stars.
We also just added a beautiful gas fireplace. It really adds nice atmosphere and helps heat the cabin quickly.
We prefer to rent to 6 people max, but will consider 7 if there are children in the group.
During the Summer Season (June 15th-Labor Day) and Ski Season (January through March) there is a 3-night minimum. Over the Christmas, New Year and February ski weeks we have a weekly minimum stay.
We have great high speed internet wifi, cable television and a gas grill for summer use. We have loads of games, dvds and beach toys to share with you.
In the Summer we have a membership to Agate Bay Swim and Sun Club with a pool and tennis courts. The pool is open from June 16th through Labor Day and is a great place to hang out, take a swim and get a milkshake or hot dog at the Snack Shack. There is a volleyball court and a grassy lawn. The pool area also has a hot tub and plenty of lounge chairs and tables. Fridays there is a penny dive for the kids and Wednesdays there is bingo in the afternoon.
Interaction with guests
We have a local property manager who is available for key pick up and in case any problems come up during your stay. We will of course be available by telephone, email and text.
Other things to note
The pricing does not include Tahoe Occupancy Tax of 10% which is added to all stays of less than 30 days or pool fees for summer stays. Those will be added to all pricing quotes.
No smoking inside or out. We do allow pets but require you to supervise them. We have a house rules document that will be provided ahead of time and a copy is at the house.
I am a reformed attorney, inspired cook and lover of all things sunny. Last year I learned to paddle board. This year I took an amazing trip to Amsterdam and Ireland. I am looking forward to the summer and my husband's cocktail creations on the deck of our tree top retreat--which I happen to think is one of the most special places this side of the Mississippi.
