This is a beautiful studio above our garage with a private entrance, full kitchen, hardwood floors, wood stove, and sky lights that give it a bright open feeling. The queen bed is located in the comfortable loft, you are welcome to use the blow up queen mattress if you need extra sleeping space. Keep in mind there is a steep ladder (shown in picture) to get to the sleeping loft.
Our Neighborhood is located just 2 miles from Tahoe City where there are plenty of restaurants and shops to choose from. We are just a couple blocks away from the Tahoe City Nordic center which has many beautiful cross country ski and snow shoeing trails. Lake Tahoe is just a short distance away. If you are coming to ski at one of the local mountains we are only a 15 min drive to Squaw, Alpine Meadows, Homewood and Northstar.
If you are coming in the summer months we are just a short drive to many beautiful beaches on Lake Tahoe. There is hiking and mountain biking close by. You can get on the bike path and ride to town and along the Truckee river.
We are a family of 5 with three daughters and we have lived in our home for 14 years. We enjoy skiing, hiking, swimming, paddle boarding, and biking in Tahoe. We can help you discover why we think living here is paradise!
Parking on the left side of the driveway. No smoking please. Turn heat down when you are not in the apartment. Please be careful to unlock the door before you go out on either of the decks so that you do not get locked out of the house.
Clean, cozy, and family friendly. My family and I had the most relaxing and fun time in this studio. Lynda was very quick to respond to messages and was a gracious host.
It was a great experience! We lives in that cozy studio for 3 nights and really enjoy it. It has everything we need. It's clean and warm. I'll come back again for the next trip to Tahoe. Perfect choice for couples.
Lynda and John were prompt in their responses and gracious as hosts. The house was clean, well organized and incredibly convenient to Squaw, Alpine and Homewood. Tahoe City was also just minutes away. It was the perfect little get-a-way spot. LOVE!
Communication with Lynda was super easy. She sent a message to let us know the place was ready a little early. Check-in and -out were simple. The place was perfect and so unique. We fell asleep every night staring up at the stars through one of many skylights in the place. The place was tidy, clean, and comfortable. We brought groceries and had everything we needed to make a nice pot of chili for the chilly nights. It's perfectly situated just about two miles from downtown Tahoe City (one of the nicest towns around Lake Tahoe). Just out of their neighborhood is a trail that runs along the lake all the way into town. We went for a beautiful run one morning. It's close to a great short hike, Eagle Rock, which offers epic views of the lake. We capped our weekend getaway off with an awesome yoga class at Mountain Lotus yoga and brunch at Fire Sign Cafe. What a relaxing holiday weekend!
This was my first Airbnb experience and I was delighted. I met John upon arrival and Lynda upon exit, they were very nice and welcoming. The studio was clean and charming, it included the comforts of home (plenty of towels, pillows, blankets). The bed is very comfy, wifi is strong, parking is easy. The wood burning stove was a little confusing at first, but it was awesome, lots of options. There is a grill on the deck, and plenty of firewood. The location of the studio is ideal, close to the mountain, grocery, restaurants, yoga.
Thanks for sharing your wonderful home, Lynda and John!
Lynda and John had the studio all setup for us upon arriving. Fresh towels, clean sheets, sparkling floors, firewood, and even a couple necessities in the fridge. We cooked all of our meals in the kitchen and had no problem doing so. Spices and coffee was provided. Trader Joes soaps, lotions, and shower amenities stocked in the bathroom. There's even a first aid kit in the linen closet!!
The studio is a short drive away from town where you'll find plenty of good restaurants and shopping. We enjoyed the Tahoe Mountain Brewing Company. It is also easy to maneuver around the lake from here. It took us about 15 minutes to get to Kings Beach and about 25 to Emerald Bay where incredible photographs await.
We made ourselves at home while here and have found a new favorite Tahoe Airbnb. We will be back undoubtedly in the summer, likely with a couple friends to take advantage of the couch bed!
Lynda and John are seasoned hosts, and you will be treated as such in this romantic mountain loft experience. I didn't get a chance to talk with them during our stay, but I was at ease knowing they were accessible to our needs in the main house next door.
I would recommend this place to anyone. 5+ stars, easily.
This cabin is really awesome - we arrived in the evening, and the place was absolutely a home away from home! Lynda and John had everything ready for us - the place was clean, warm, and there were some baked goods waiting for us on the counter! We had the most relaxing time, the location was perfect (right by the lake), with lots of great restaurants near-by!
We enjoy the outdoors and living in the mountains. My husband, John, is a Chiropractor and is passionate about helping people live a long, healthy life. I, Lynda, am a birth educator, doula and Mother of three. We are grateful to have three beautiful daughters that teach us life lessons everyday, and to be able to live in such a beautiful place.
