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.
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.
We really want you to enjoy your stay... all we ask is that no one smokes and every one is respectful of the house, hot tub and furnishings.
During winter months (Nov-May) there is a very nice hot tub on the back deck overlooking forest service land and I ask that you mind the rules that I have stated in the informational binder. If my hot tub service provider says there is a need to dump & scrub the tub because of excessive scum, pee or pollutants, $110 will be charged in addition to the contracted maintenance and deducted from your security deposit.
I do not encourage dogs but will consider on a individual basis. Please note that there are hard wood floors throughout the house, and if you're dog is not used to them, I discourage the rental.
Housekeeping services between stays is available with a call to the property manager - depending on amount of laundry and cleanup - it usually runs between $80-$150. I find that most people clean up after themselves and a vaccuum and washer dryer unit is available at the house.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!

About the Host, Ladd And Niobe
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've lived in the Northern beaches of Sydney, Australia for the past 1.5 years. The people have been super welcoming and the parts of the country we've seen have been beautiful. We are excited to explore more places throughout Southeast Asia.
