The space

Our 3B/2Bth house comfortably accommodates up to 6 people.The three bedrooms include a queen, a full and a trundle bed that rolls out to be two twins. The master bedroom has an adjoining bathroom with shower, the other rooms share a bathroom with a bath/shower. The house has been recently remodeled with a new well-equipped kitchen and expansive living area with plenty of seating/reading areas and a flat screen TV with iPod dock/DVD/CD receiver. Wi-fi connections for high-speed internet access. Backyard deck looks out on to the common woods around Timberland with a BBQ and patio area once snow melts away. Horseshoe pits on the side.

Place is kid-friendly - one story with only a couple steps to navigate in the entire house.Pack and Play available - one less thing to pack.

We pride ourselves on having a nice, tasteful place tucked in peaceful woods. Morning walks on the quiet streets then cozy up to the two gas fireplaces as a slight chill envelopes the evening. Tranquility and convenience!

We had a great time staying at Frederick and Sophie's Lake Tahoe cabin. The place was clean and in a fantastic location. We enjoyed being able to walk to the beach and get to town with a short car ride. The cabin is a bit darker inside than the pictures show. Other than that, it was a great place for a Lake Tahoe getaway. We highly recommend Fire Sign cafe for breakfast one morning!

Fantastic place. Easily accommodated our family of 6 and we loved it! Great location - easy walk to Fire Sign Cafe, West Side Market/Deli and Spoons. Short drive to Tahoe City. Well maintained and clean house. Great communication from the hosts and a hassle free stay. We'll be back next year! The only thing to be aware of is that AT&T cell coverage is a bit spotty in that area. Didn't bother us much as we wanted to unplug, and the house has good wi-fi.

We enjoyed our quiet summer family vacation in this home. It was close enough to Lake Tahoe for us to drive to many areas of the lake. Thank you Frederick & Sophie for providing a home with all the amenities needed for a home away from home!

This house in Tahoe was great! The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. It was around a 4-5 block walk to the public beach area. The house is located on the south end of Tahoe City, on the border with Homewood. So, you could walk about 1-1/2 miles to Sunnyside where there were cafes, restaurants and activity rentals. Otherwise, it was a 15-20 minute drive (with no traffic) to get in to Tahoe City. The house was immaculate! The beds were comfortable and cozy. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the equipment you would need and there was a large amount of seasonings already available, which is a bonus when traveling and cooking in someone else's kitchen. There are two bathrooms, which are on the smaller side, but perfectly clean and functional. The master bedroom has a queen bed, one room has a full-size bed and the third bedroom has a twin bed plus trundle. There is a formal living room with a pull-out bed. The kitchen and family room area is open and airy. Internet and cellular service is available but can be spotty -- it wasn't the worst but it also wasn't the best, which is typical for mountain areas. Don't expect high-speed internet for streaming and such. All in all, it was a great place for a mountain get away and I would recommend it highly to other travelers.

Very spacious cottage with all a Tahoe traveler needs. The cottage is situated at the nicest part near Lake Tahoe, not too far from Emmerald Bay and not to far from little stores and bars in Tahoma.
