The Space

This house is a prime place to stay for your Tahoe vacation. Our cozy cabin is just up the hill from the lake. A brief walk down to the North Shore of beautiful Lake Tahoe and the shops, beaches, and restaurants of Kings Beach. Our town has some of the best beaches around the lake. You can walk the length of the town on the lakeshore. It stretches for over half a mile with a breath-taking view of the high peaks south of the lake.

Our place has a big front yard with a nice, sunny deck. On the deck, we have a patio table with an umbrella, extra chairs, and a charcoal grill (all put away in the winter). Our house is one block away from the national forest land with ample trail access that you can walk to from the house. Great in the fall for hiking and biking (quick lake view hike) and wonderful in the winter for cross country skiing and snowshoeing. The North Tahoe Regional Park is just 2 miles away with a wonderful 18 hole disc golf course, tennis courts, soccer and baseball fields and lots and lots of trails which lead all over. The Pine Drop Bike Path also connects to the North Tahoe Regional Park, which you can cross country ski or snowshoe to in the winter.

Kings Beach is centrally located between Incline Village (5 miles) and Tahoe City (9 miles). We are close to all of the ski resorts of the North Shore (Northstar, Mount Rose, Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley), which all have ample hiking and mountain biking this time of year.

Now about our home. You walk right into a spacious typical Tahoe style cabin. Two-story with wood panelling on the inside gives it that comfortable, warm, homey feel. This cabin is fully equipped with a wood stove, gas heating as well, washer dryer, full kitchen, 37" Full 1080p flat screen TV, Blue Ray player for all your movie needs, WiFi, and two full bathrooms. The master bedroom is nice and open and takes up most of the top floor with a queen sized bed. There is a couch downstairs in the living room and ample floor space for your other guests. We don't mind if you have extra guests, we just don't have any extra beds for them:)

This is our humble abode and we appreciate you showing it respect and love. You will have the whole place to yourself when you stay here. We do have a kitty cat named Emrys that lives here when other guests aren't here. He will never be present when the place is rented. If you have a canine friend you want to bring, that is more than welcome. Tahoe is an extremely dog-friendly place and we welcome well-behaved, potty trained doggies to stay at our house. Our front yard is great to play in and we can direct you to all of the dog friendly beaches, trails, and local pet attractions.

I wish I could say Tahoe is easy to access without a vehicle, but it really isn't. There is local transit, the TART ($1.75 to ride anywhere). The bus usually stops at it's designated stops once an hour, so plan accordingly. A car definitely makes it easier. We have extra parking in our driveway. In the summer time it is easier to get everywhere around town by foot or bike.

Kings Beach is a small town consisting of about 3800 residents that make up a great community base. There are several bars, restaurants, and shops to choose from with other new businesses on their way. One is the new Tahoe Flow Arts Studio located in Tahoe Vista. I (Meghan) teach aerial fabric, dance and conditioning classes here so please come and take a class!
The state line of Nevada/California is less than a mile up the hill and hosts a few local casinos. There are often big name and local musicians and acts that come through Tahoe and play at these venues giving us an entertaining night life.
The house has many windows and it gets lots of sun all day long, especially since it's sunny in Tahoe 300 days a year! We welcome you to come stay in Tahoe at our quaint home! It's a great place to stay to feel right at home in Tahoe.

Interaction with Guests

If we are available, we will meet the guests at the house to give a quick tour and show them around and then they will be left alone.

Check In
  • Megan and Shane have a lovely house in King's Beach, within walking distance to a beautiful part of Lake Tahoe and a nice strip of shops and restaurants. They were great hosts and our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We would recommend their place wholeheartedly.

  • The cabin was exactly as described-- very cozy and within walking distance to the beach and hiking trails. Besides being close to great outdoor activities and restaurants, the house has a great entertainment center and WiFi. Meghan is a very accommodating and knowledgable host, and we loved the beaches she suggested. We would definitely stay here again.

    June 2014
  • Meghan was friendly and responsive. The cabin was well located and cozy with a really good fireplace.

  • The house is really nice and cozy and in a great location in King's Beach. For 2 people its perfect - the airbed was not extremely comfortable but for someone who is not very picky when it comes to sleeping locations, it´s fine. The fireplace is amazing and the house comes with a big selection of games and DVDs.

    Meghan is incredibly sweet and very available and has amazing recommendations for the entire Lake Tahoe area. I definitely recommend staying with them :)

  • Meghan was a wonderful host starting from the moment we booked all the way up until the time we checked out! She was very communicative and helpful the entire time and gave great suggestions of things to do/places to eat in the area.

    The cabin is very cozy and has an awesome little fireplace in the corner. It has everything you need and is in a great location. Would definitely recommend!

  • We had a lovely time at Meghan and Shane's adorable King's Beach cabin. It was very cozy and comfortable and the radiator and space heaters kept us warm and toasty. We felt very at home, like visiting friends who trusted us to take care of their place while they were away!! Meghan came over when we arrived and gave us a tour and was in touch via text or phone if we needed to touch base. It was great and she is also adorable. I'd be happy to stay there again although the stairs up to the bedroom were a little bit of a challenge for us old folks. Probably good for us!! ;-)

  • Meghan was very communicative and accommodating. She reached out to make sure we were well-suited the entire trip. This cozy cabin makes for quite a romantic getaway in a fantastic location for North Lake Tahoe-

    January 2014
  • We were there as a family for a vacation when we stayed at Meghan's place. She was a wonderful host, helped us have a great vacation. Look out for her choice of trails or dinner places, they were spot on. My family enjoyed both. For first time Tahoe visitors like us, she was helpful answering lots of questions about the place, weather and what to expect. The host ensured that we had a perfect vacation. If I go to Lake Tahoe again, I would be looking up this place as my first choice!

    December 2013
  • The Cozy Cabin was wonderful! Here are a few things we REALLY enjoyed:

    1. The hosts were super friendly, but not pushy, and very willing to help. Megan and Shane are very nice, kind people and we could not ask for better.

    2. The WiFi was very fast, as promised, the TV was great and the entertainment center is very well configured.

    3. The house was very very cozy, and had everything we could possibly want. The living room was nice and comfortable, the whole place was very clean, there was firewood already stacked by the fireplace, utensils and plates and cups were already there, and the house was decorated in a very tasteful and worldly way.

    4. The House is a 10 minute walk from gorgeous King's beach, and right by a bunch of hiking trails - the perfect Tahoe experience!

    5/5 I would definitely stay here again, i recommend this property to anyone who wants a mix of outdoor recreation and cozy indoor cabining.

  • It was just what the doctor ordered. Meghan was a total sweetheart and made us feel very welcome when we showed up. The cabin is quaint and comfortable. Definitely would go back again.

Hello! Shane and I have been living in North Lake Tahoe for over 8 years now. We live in Kings Beach, California, USA. This community is very dear to us and we would LOVE to share our local knowledge with you. Both of us enjoy being in nature, which leads to living in an outdoor mecca like Tahoe. Our favorite summer activities are; biking, kayaking, hiking, swimming, camping, backpacking, boating, golfing, fishing, hot springing and going to the beach. We are also both artists and love to travel, which leaves our place open for you! We both love to cook and prepare healthy, yummy food as we each have special dietary needs. So if you have any special dietary needs of your own, let us know and we can definitely help accommodate. We are very excited to be hosting on AirBNB and support this online marketplace. I, Meghan, am a Snowboard, Dance and Aerial Fabric Instructor who also performs with a local performance group. And I, Shane, am a Producer and Performer in the Electronic music scene in the Reno/Tahoe area. We look forward to meeting you!
