We have restored and transformed this original, hand built, 1940s Tahoe cabin into a beautiful and modern four season escape. Our cozy one bedroom + loft, one bathroom cabin is centrally located in one of the most sought after neighborhoods in the region. We've spent the past year thoughtfully curating all spaces throughout the home with modern furniture, new bedding and linens, as well as top-end housewares, appliances and beautiful things we love.

The space
Welcome to Cubby - The Little Black Cabin By The Lake!

The main floor of our scandinavian inspired home has an open design concept that includes living room, dining room, chef's kitchen, bathroom and laundry. The abundant windows and dutch doors provide amazing light and plenty of sneak-a-peek views of beautiful Lake Tahoe and surrounding mountains. Up the hickory staircase you will find the master bedroom and guest loft / reading nook (both with newly restored skylights).

The house also boasts 1000sf of deck space providing the best of indoor / outdoor living for all seasons. Bask in the sun or enjoy your favorite book in a shady, breezy corner throughout the day. Quiet summer evenings by the outdoor firepit or snowy winter nights by the beautiful woodstove in the main living room.

Our little Cubby has been restored with so much thought and love, we know you'll have an amazing getaway. Please note: this is our private home (not an investment property) and filled with things that we love so please be respectful and treat everything with care.
