Great central West Shore location with lots of options. Timberland is an historic small set of homes plopped right in the middle of the Tahoe Forest surrounded by some hundred year old trees - the quietest nights you'll ever have on the West Shore and a short 3 miles to all the activities at Tahoe City. We are also steps away from Ward Creek Park with a number of running, biking, exploring trials - a great introduction to nature of the little ones or instant rejuvenation with your morning coffee stroll.
As it warms up, lakeside is a great place to be. Walk down the street to Hurricane Bay, a convenient pebbly beach with great vistas. Or drive 3 miles to the beautiful sandy shores of Chambers Landing or a bit further to stunning Meek's Bay. The buzzing outdoor deck of Sunnyside can be reached through a 15 minutes walk through the forest or drive in less than a couple minutes.
Right down the block is the recently renovated Rideout Community Center - indoor basketball courts, kids play room packed with playsets, foozball, air-hockey and more. $2/day and your kid can have fun even on a cold, wet day. When it's sunny, there's a new outdoor play structure/swings, outdoor basketball hoops and a huge soccer field for running around in.
In winter, we are less than 5 minutes from Homewood and 15-20 minutes from Alpine and Squaw, For the non-skiers, snow-shoeing in Ward Creek Park is just a few steps away.

We had a nice vacation at this forest house. The house is really cosy and specious at the same time. Very child friendly house, very clean. Walkable distance to the forrest and trails.
Very nice home on the west shore of Tahoe, close to Tahoe City. It had everything we needed to spend a relaxing week near the lake!
Wonderful and comfortable place to stay. We were in town for a wedding a few miles up the road at west shore cafe and the home was ready for us when we arrived. The instructions were clear and straight forward. Thank you Frederick and Sophie for a great stay!
The host was really responsive and thorough with instructions. The house is in a great location, clean, great condition, comfortable and nicely equipped.
We had a great visit to Tahoe City and loved the Quiet Forest Home. Everything was as described!
Sophie was very responsive to our questions. We really enjoyed staying at this cozy cabin which is also at a very convenience location. It is less than 10 minutes drive to Homewood Ski Resort! It is also fairly close to a local Safeway and many decent restaurants near the Lake Blvd. It's a quiet neighborhood. The neighbors are pretty friendly. In addition, I appreciated Sophie has provided us instructions for check-in and departure procedures which were clear and easy to follow. There is also a beautiful lake view only 2 minutes drive for great pictures or selfies! Thanks again for the accommodation!
We had an absolutely lovely stay at Sophie & Frederick's home. We went for a short holiday trip with our 3 year old son and my parents. The home looks just like the pictures and was very comfortable for a family with young kids. The location is outstanding, with very quick access to both the lake itself and Tahoe City. We would definitely come back!
