Beautiful cabin in the woods with remodeled kitchen, hot tub and great yard for relaxing. One of the nicest settings at the lake. Beaches and ski resorts are all in close proximity, as well dining and shopping. Come and enjoy!
Beautiful, quiet setting on a half acre lot. The home has been nicely decorated with peeler log accents, updated kitchen and bathrooms and maintained in a "pride of ownership" condition. Outside is a park like setting with flagstone walkways, wrap around decks, a hammock, BBQ patio and a large spa. The horseshoe pit can't be missed! This home is the meaning of "mountain comfort".

Another view of the deck and BBQ area - great for those relaxing late afternoon meals
We had an amazing stay at John's house. We had 4 adults and 2 children (ages 3 and 4) and had plenty if space. The house is very clean, kitchen is superbly stocked - we cooked all of our meals and everything we needed for cooking/serving was readily available. The living room has a perfect set up for socializing and playing some board games. The backyard/outdoor area is amazing!!!! Beautiful deck with outdoor seating and grill - we had all of our meals out here surrounded by tall pine trees and sounds of birds. There is a fire-pit where we made snores and looked at the start night, awesome jacuzzi - perfect for chilly evenings and a hammock (perfect for reading and an afternoon nap). The location is great and only about a 5-10minute drive to several beaches. Thank you for a wonderful and very relaxing holiday!
My family had an amazing time at John's cabin. The house was beautiful and very comfortable. I stayed with my wife, 4-year old daughter, and my parents who are in their 70s. Everyone had a wonderful time.
We spent a lot of time at the beaches and exploring the North Lake Tahoe area. The house is in a perfect location, just a short drive from many attractions. Every evening, we soaked in the hot tub and hung out in the beautiful back yard.
John was also very responsive and easy to deal with. Overall, it was a great vacation and I hope to stay here again.
Thanks Dan - Really appreciated your comments and consideration of the cabin. It is a pleasure to have families like yours stay with us, easy to communicate with and our Housekeeper said you were the cleanest Guests of the year! Glad you enjoyed your vacation! Come back soon!
We had a great long weekend in the Cabin which is in a great location. Really enjoyed the great backyard and grill.
We truly loved our mini family reunion here. The house is very well equipped, and the six of us made and ate dinner in every night, and lacked for nothing. The space was perfect, with lots of light. The yard made for some fun evenings. The location was also ideal - it was easy to get everywhere we wanted to go. John was a great host, and made everything very easy to follow. We would absolutely return!
This was a very convenient location and easy to find. The cabin was comfortable enough for 3 kids and 2 adults. We did not really stay in the cabin much except for after dark due to eating out and being outside on the lake for most of every day we were in Tahoe. We were 5 min from great beach/shore access locations which made our stay that much more enjoyable. It was hot while we were there and although there was no A/C (at least I did not see any) opening the windows provided enough of a draft to cool the space down. We used the hot tub a few times and even in a rain storm which was kinda nice. There were notes and instructions for anything you might have had a question about readily available.
Wow where do I begin!!!! When you take the Key and open the doors it was like walking into a magical fairytale home. My Aunts and I decided on renting this home for a long weekend for my Mothers 60th birthday. John and Karen really did an amazing job at capturing every element of a storybook home. The yard was like walking into a fairy land with whimsical trees and landscape that took your breath away. Almost like walking into a secret garden. The Bedrooms were so amazingly decorated with clouds for beds. The Amenities are brand name and had everything that you would ever need and more in a home. It was hard to leave this place the energy was beautiful and it filled your heart with so much love. Pictures are great but, you need to see it to believe it. I only got to meet John and Karen for a minute, but I could tell they are real beautiful people. You could see they poured their love into this home. Thank you so much for letting us stay here, this stay created the best memories that will never be forgotten. We love you guys just for creating a magical place!!!!!

About the Host, John
My wife Karen and I are now retired and enjoying the Lake Tahoe lifestyle all four seasons. I'm trying to improve my golfing skills while she's an avid hiker and biker. We have three grown sons all pursuing their careers in the SF Bay Area, where all of us grew up. We love to travel in the off seasons and are looking forward to visiting airbnb properties in Europe, South America and Asia the next few years, while keeping our home base here in the Sierras. If we find a better place we'll let you know, but after all these years, Lake Tahoe is tough to beat!
Come to Tahoe, relax and enjoy the finest beauty nature has to offer! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask and we would be more than happy to point you in the right direction!
