The Space

A really charming cabin with an inspiring view of Tahoe!
3 bedrooms and 1 bath. It's between Tahoe City and Carnelian Bay so it's close to everything in North Tahoe. Amazing lake views are the highlight of this cabin. There's a nice, simple kitchen with plenty of room to create a feast. The comfortable leather sofas in the living room center around the fireplace and ridiculous lake views from the big picture window. There are two bedrooms on the main floor; One with lake views and one without. Depends if you like sunrise or not because this cabin gets the best sunrises! One bathroom with a tub shower and washer/dryer gets the job done for this cute cabin. The highlight of the cabin is the great deck for relaxing, dining, and enjoying the two-person hot tub. Whether it's sunrise yoga/meditation or sunsets with cocktails and the grill, you won't be able to stop staring at the ever-changing surface of the lake. The upstairs makes a great 3rd bedroom and lounge for extra sleeping or jamming on my guitars and drum kit. At the moment it's got a futon with a nice temporpedic top pad for sleeping and a twin bed too. Musician's and Yogis welcome! The sunrises and sunsets are incredible and inspiring but let's not forget that there are miles and miles of great trails right out the front door for mtn biking, hiking, dog walking, or x-country skiing. There is also some really good climbing a short walk away. There is plenty of parking but no garage. Your dog is welcome (2 max.)
I just love this place and figured others would want to relax here while I was away. I think it'll be a great place to come visit Tahoe and chill out.-Mike

  • We had a great time. The sunrise picture is no exaggeration! Mike is lovely to work with, great communication and very sweet. We will definitely stay here again.

  • We had a wonderful time in Mike's cabin. The location is perfect, the views are amazing, and the fireplace and hot tub were very cozy during the winter. The internet worked great and we had a fun time watching the NFL football playoffs with Mike's cable TV. My family visited for a couple nights and said their beds were comfortable and they slept great. We were also happy that we could bring our little dog, she had a blast too. Thanks Mike!

  • WOW!! WOW!!! WOW!!!

    If you have come across this place (and it is free for when you want it) - TAKE IT!!

    This cabin has possibly the best view of any place i have stayed at (only exception being when i was in a tent in the Himalayas), it is easy to get to, near Tahoe City, has the most beautiful open fire and has everything you need for a family to have the perfect getaway.
    If you want mod cons and brand new bathrooms then it might not be for you - but for us, the pure, natural, rustic feel of the cabin made it all the more incredible.

    We were truly blessed to have it for Christmas. If i could attach photos...

  • Mike's cabin was absolutely perfect for our weekend getaway. The photos are accurate -- beautiful views, comfortable layout and bedding, amazing hot tub, and you could get lost just staring at the lake and surrounding mountains all day.

    Specifically, this place was great because:

    * Mike was so hospitable! We met in person when we arrived and he showed us around.
    * Mike had made a great map of the trails just across the street, which offer a loop of at least an hour and smaller trails and loops inside them.
    * The kitchen equipment is basically all we needed. He has a coffee grinder, kettle and italian percolator, or a nespresso machine.
    * The beds, sheets, and comforters are super comfortable.
    * Plenty of towels were left for us, which was thoughtful.
    * The main room is laid out perfectly for a small group of friends to hang out together, reading, talking, watching a movie, watching the fire, playing cards or eating at the table, etc.

    Thanks so much, Mike!

  • I Went to Michaels House over Christmas. This Cabin is just perfection. I spent the loveliest White Christmas. He helped us a lot by making sure we had the car space and entrance and back porch perfectly shoveled. The house was clean and everything was in perfect condition. Its romantic, and has the backyard hot tub that overlooks the Lake and the magical view is unforgettable! I will come back often to this house, I want to experience it in the summer as well!

Hey Folks! My name is Mike and I love living in North Tahoe but I also love to travel. It would be a shame to let my place to go to waste while I'm gone so I thought I'd give this a try. I have it listed twice; my 2 extra rooms for folks that come through while I'm here living the dream and again as the whole cabin for when I'm off traveling somewhere. I think you will really enjoy staying at my place. I am in my late 30s. I'm a Realtor in beautiful North Lake Tahoe. I work at Sierra Sotheby's and am always happy to discuss the Real Estate market. I have lived here for 13 years and I'm a natural at playing tour guide if you need any help. I enjoy singing/ playing guitar at local bars and restaurants on the north shore/ski resorts. If you like live music, my cabin is only 15 minutes from the Crystal Bay Club where I like to go see live music. If you're trustworthy, feel free to play my guitars and drums while you're here. I'm also a full cert. ski instructor too so if you need any pointers I'd be happy to help out. I travel a lot with my friends for stuff like the Olympic Games, surf trips, ski trips, adventure races, and I also go to the UK quite a bit. Say Hi and come enjoy Tahoe. The lake views are awesome! Thanks, Mike
