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.
This is the perfect home away from home on the stunning Lake Tahoe - we stayed for a month in February and did not want to leave. John & Lynda were so friendly and welcoming and made us feel like part of the community - we truly experienced why they love to live here. The leafy loft is private, spacious with fully functioning kitchen and plenty of space on two decks to get some fresh air, great closet and pantry space and all the cooking mod cons - the lot. The ceilings boast sky light windows opening to the stunning blue skies above, perfect for star gazing and waking up to dappled light in the (website hidden) and internet access was great. Off street parking and close proximity to all the conveniences of restaurants, groceries and all Tahoe City has to offer. Squaw Valley skiing just 20 mins drive away. John and Lynda's property is a close stroll to some great hiking tracks through the forest. Or borrow John's bike for a 2 minute drive to the 7Eleven to rent a DVD. We cannot say enough great things about both the property and the hosts. We even enjoyed lovely visits from their cute pup Nika, making us feel right at home. Thank you John and Lynda - we look forward to seeing you again next time we are in Tahoe!
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.
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.
