The Space

Your cozy private room is located downstairs at the front of the house just off the living room. It has a comfy double bed, dresser, speakers with auxiliary plug-in, a pretty cool collection of books, and brand new carpet & windows.

Since buying the home in April 2012, I've been busy painting rooms, replacing floors and creating an awesome outdoor oasis in the backyard. The hot tub is a great place to relax and soak in the mountain air year round. The deck is made from reclaimed redwood. The outhouse gives some 1950's Tahoe charm and now serves as wood storage for the backyard fire pit.

I have another guest room that I save for friends who like to come visit. So if you are looking for a romantic couples retreat you may be happier in a hotel room. This is by no means a party house but when old friends get together, good times usually follow.

Located ten minute walking distance to Heavenly Gondola and 15 to the Casinos. Five minute walk to Raley's shopping center with grocery store, coffee shops, art galleries, sporting goods and boutiques. Near Van Sickle state park, public transit, hiking/biking trails and beach access.

Guest Access

You are invited to share the bathroom, kitchen, living room and backyard. Make yourselves at home while you stay. One bathroom can be a challenge...asking if anyone else needs to get in there before taking a shower is a much appreciated gesture. You are welcome to use spices, condiments and cookware for all your cooking needs. And there is plenty of off-street parking in the driveway.

Interaction with Guests

Usually I'm here while guests stay and I prefer when guests are cool and we all hang out. I'm a super social person and live here alone so AirBnB is a way for me to have roommates, if you will, on a temporary basis. So come up and hang out!

On the off chance I'm out of town...please know I'm bummed that I wasn't able to meet you.

The Neighborhood

I absolutely love being walking distance to so many awesome things...casinos, restaurants, nightlife, stores, beaches, hiking trails, etc.

Getting around

Blue go has bus stops within a couple minute walk from the house and the main terminal is only a 10 minute walk away.

Other Things to Note

South Lake Tahoe has recently banned plastic bags at grocery stores. I have reusable tote bags in the laundry room that you are welcome to borrow. If you happen to have a bag monster in a closet or drawer at home and want to bring some plastic bags (grocery size preferred) up here they will be happily reused.

Also, I'm a certified massage therapist and have a massage room in the house. Massages are available by appointment. I work 4 jobs presently so if you think you might be interested, please let me know in advance so we can plan out a time.

  • We had an amazing time in Lake Tahoe. Kristen's home was nice and cozy. We were able to walk almost everywhere we wanted to go. The hot tub was a wonderful treat after a long day of enjoying the town.

  • Kristen & Jake were super helpful with tips on places to eat & drink and gave clear instructions on how to get into their place. Super cozy cabin walking distance to tons of stuff. Would love to stay here again.

  • The good: the cabin is close to stateliness, beaches & food. There's bikes to get around town. Another guest was there during my stay and we had fun hanging out getting drinks, food & going to the beach riding bikes around.
    The not so good: the house and room was not cleaned prior to my arrival or after the last guest stayed before me, there was confusion to which room I was in, thought I booked one but was given another. The upstairs is much to hot to stay in during summer, you only want to be in one of the two downstairs rooms if you have the option. The room I rented was occupied by another guest & the other room was not clean or ready & seemed to be occupied as (website hidden) I was told to use the upstairs room but it was too hot so I decided to take the downstairs room and changed the sheets myself once I figured out no one was coming back to the room. Other then the issue with the room and such I enjoyed my time in Tahoe.

  • Great location! Walking distance to the grocery store, beach, and casinos. Even though we didn't need it, we appreciated the reusable bags! This was very thoughtful! The hot tub was wonderful, as promised. Thank you for a relaxing place to stay after a long bike ride!

  • We were at Kristen's place for three nights . And it was an awesome stay. Very clean and well organized. Kristen was not there during our stay but she made sure that we feel like staying at our own home in her absence. Jake was there to help us out for all our queries. We highly recommend this place if you are visiting Tahoe.

    Cheers

  • The Stay at Jake's place was great. His location is very near to Gandola ride, casino, restaurants, seven eleven, etc. Perfect place for visitors.

    The house itself was very clean, spacious. I would definitely keep this as my first choice next time I am there. Thank you for being a great host Jake.

  • The house was great- clean, centrally located, and very welcoming. Hot tub perfect for the cool evenings and there was even bikes to borrow. Walking distance to get food, drinks and entertainment. I would highly recommend staying here to other airb&b guests!

  • My son and I had an amazing time in Tahoe .

    We stayed here one night, cooked an amazing dinner with Kristen and her boyfriend Jake.

    Such good times, a great collection of memories...

    House was clean.
    And nicely decorated.

    Backyard was huge
    With a fire-pit that we used to have a backyard Bon fire.

    Nice jacuzzi as well.

    Close to beach and shopping & dining.

    Love these beautiful people ..!

    Filled with the spirit of Tahoe...

  • Kristen and Jake! I have never met so kind and action people. It was one of the best weekends in my life. Cabin has great location (5min walking to Gondola and 10min to lake) surrounded with nice nature. I felt there as at home. We had also a lot of fun with Kristen and Jake, because they spent a lot of time with us (skiing, offroading, biking) so we felt there as residents. Thanks again!
