The Space

Beautiful Home! Minimum 6 month 2015 summer lease with option to extend for entire year. $2200/month including up to $450/month in utilities.

This home is ideal for couples looking for A SPECIAL, LUXURY PLACE FOR A ROMANTIC GET-AWAY OR INVITE FRIENDS TO THE MOUNTAINS in Tahoe. As classy as a 5* star hotel yet the amenities and privacy of your own home with a fully equipped kitchen and gas grill on the deck for your favorite meals (including spices!) and back deck overlooking National Forest.

In the fall, enjoy some sightseeing, hiking and relaxing around the lake. Spend a fabulous Thanksgiving in Tahoe with the possibility to ski early season with no crowds. Be able to come up anytime!

This is a 1200 sf home in Tahoe Vista, North Lake Tahoe, recently remodeled, backs to Forest Service land with hiking trails (TVRA and Tahoe Rim Trail) nearby, or just WALK to the LAKE! Restaurants and shopping within a 5 min drive in Kings Beach or 10 min to Tahoe City. 15 minutes to the slopes of Northstar, 20 minutes to Squaw or Alpine Meadows, plus other fabulous value and "no crowd" resorts like Diamond Peak and Homewood within half an hour.
20 minutes from Sand Harbor on the east shore and 45 minutes from magical Emerald Bay. I also have put together a binder of interesting local information for guests to reference to make their stay more fun and enjoyable.

Bedrooms have fresh, quality linens, towels and closet space. The home is decorated with care and feels like home....books to peruse, pillows to cuddle up to! Full kitchen privileges, dining and living room with TV and Blu Ray disc player, no cable. Natural Gas Grill and dining area on the front deck. Hot tub and relaxing area to sit on the back deck overlooking Forest Service Land. Peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. There is NO cable TV....bring your own hotspot for internet access - time to relax!! This is NOT a party house.
Please Note - This home is my primary residence and not set up to be childproof. I have many antiques, glass cabinets and suede couches. If you have children under the age of 8, this may not be the rental for you.

This was my primary residence, and it is cleared of personal belongings to make it truly feel like your own home. In summer months you will also have access to two kayaks for your own personal use.

This house rents for $400/nt on Holiday week days/ends - it's a (email hidden) including utilities (max $450 month - based on full time usage).

House will accommodate 4 adults - 2 bedrooms, each with private bath. Additional people can only be accommodated on your own air mattresses but is not recommended for the space.

HOT TUB in operation DURING WINTER MONTHS (Nov-May) but can be extended. A Hot Tub maintenance contract is required and is an additional cost of $270 per three month contract but keeps your tub worry free.

Security Deposit - One month's rent. Housekeeping available upon request as well as shovel service. Property manager nearby.

Interaction with Guests

I now live in Sydney, Australia but am happy to make local recommendations via email. There is a property manager nearby who checks on the property and is available for any issues that may arise.

Getting around

You will need your own 4 wheel drive vehicle in the winter time when snow is predicted. Many sides streets don't get plowed for a day when heavy storms hit and so nothing but 4 wheel drive will get you around. Of course, 2 wheel drive is fine in the summer. Bus are sporatic and there is a bus stop at the bottom our our street. They are useful especially when there are special events going on around the lake.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Niobe's space was just what we were looking for. Relaxing, comfortable and private. The house sits on a hillside with natural light filling every room and views of the man in the moon from the deck and windows. Surrounded by trees, we could listen to the bird songs all morning while doing yoga on the deck. The attention to detail throughout the house is very soothing and if you are a foodie the kitchen is supplied with everything you might need. We used her kayaks which was a plus, no time limit on rentals. We loved our time at Niobe's and would highly recommend it!

  • Wonderful stay at Niobe's cabin in Tahoe Vista. Everything was as promised, and Niobe did a great job of providing additional information on local restaurants and activities. We stayed for four nights, and would have been glad to stay longer. I highly recommend Niobe as a host and her cabin as a place to stay for a Tahoe vacation.

    June 2013
  • The cabin is exactly as described, pretty, light and secluded, backing onto State Forest, yet a walk or short drive to restaurants and supermarket. I would highly recommend Niobe's cabin for anybody who wants a few days away from it all. Niobe is an outstanding hostess. There were may nice little touches to make sure that visitors were welcome and would want for nothing (this included beer in the fridge, spare toothbrushes, etc). We were made welcome from the moment we arrived.

    June 2013
  • Great place and very convenient to so many activities. Niobe was a great host and we plan to stay again

  • A stunning house, open house, with plenty of windows to take in the beautiful surroundings. Inside the furniture and photography make you feel like you've traveled to another place, while comfortably sitting in front of the wood stove fireplace. Kitchen is perfect for the avid cook, with plenty of great pots/pans. Rooms are cozy with extremely comfortable beds. Bathrooms are clean and modern. The balcony is accessible from the living room, and a really nice option to soak up the area. Overall, very beautiful house, with lots of charm, complete with an attentive host.

    February 2013
  • A beautiful space in a perfect location. We loved the open living space, cozy fire place and all the natural light. I wish the snow had been as good as the cabin! We'll certainly keep this one in mind next time we head up to Tahoe.

    January 2013
  • My family and I stayed at Niobes house over the new years. We enjoyed this home very much and it was a perfect place to spend some relaxing days inside and out in the snow. Thanks Niobe for making us feel so welcome!

    January 2013
  • A gorgeous location, great house and very helpful host. A perfect spot for a quiet romantic getaway. The view of the lake from Stag Rd down to the main road is the best in the area. We will hopefully get there again soon!

    Special thanks for the Thanksgiving (and other restaurant) recommendations, Niobe!

  • We had a great time. Niobe was the perfect host. Very accommodating and gave us tons of good recommendations to nearby trails and restaurants. The hot tub was nice and toasty and completely private and the wood burning fireplace kept us warm in the evenings. We felt like it was our own little place in the woods.

    November 2012
  • An absolutely gorgeous location and a very gracious and hospitable host. Niobe was very helpful, and patient with us as we tried to find her house, even though we woke her up in the middle of the night and she had work early the next morning. She was very easy to reach and helped us out a lot during our stay.

    The place itself is beautiful and extremely well-kept. The house is in pristine condition and the kitchen is very well-equipped.

    Being city people (we're from LA), we could not have asked for a better getaway than Niobe's place.
    We had a great mini-honeymoon at her rental and would definitely like to visit again.

Meraki/Cisco - Niobe Burden Fine Art Photography
We feel fortunate to have a home in one of the most beautiful places in the United States - Lake Tahoe. Ladd is in the cloud computing business and Niobe is a professional photographer, who instructs and sells her fine art photos. We love the outdoors and love to travel. We recently relocated to Fairlight near Sydney, Australia for Ladd's work. The people have been super welcoming and the parts of the country we've seen so far have been beautiful. We are excited to explore more places "down under".
