House - Entire home/apt · West Lake Boulevard, Tahoe City, CA 96145, United States

This cabin is perfect for couples looking for a cozy mountain retreat or a small group of friends planning a fun trip to Lake Tahoe. The cabin is directly across the street from Lake Tahoe and within 15 minutes of Squaw, Alpine and Homewood.

The Space

Welcome to my cozy cabin, located in Tahoe City on the West Shore, across from Lake Tahoe and Sunnyside Restaurant & Lodge. The cabin gets lots of sun and is comfortably decorated in a bright/contemporary style - perfect for relaxing in Tahoe. For sleeping, the cabin has two bedrooms upstairs, each with a queen-sized mattress, as well as a pull-out couch in the living room. Downstairs you will find the one bathroom, full kitchen, living room and dining area.

The cabin is located approx. 8 minutes from Homewood and 15 minutes from Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows.

The cabin is located just across the street from Lake Tahoe, where a small public beach offers breathtaking views of the lake and a great place for swimming in the summer. In addition to being across the street from Sunnyside, the cabin is walking distance from Firesign Cafe (best brunch in town), Sunnyside Market (great for grabbing breakfast ingredients or deli sandwiches for lunch) and Spoon restaurant. In the summer, nearby West Shore Sports offers paddleboards, kayaks, bikes and other summer activity rentals - all within easy walking distance.

Driving-wise, the cabin is also a short 3 minute drive to downtown Tahoe City, 8 minutes to Homewood and the West Shore Cafe and 15 minutes to Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows.

The house is also within short walking distance of the TART bus stop, which is also a stop for the free Night Rider that runs until 1 a.m. in the peak winter and summer seasons.

The cabin is located directly on the bike path which runs North to Tahoe City (15 minute bike ride) or South along the West Shore of Lake Tahoe with stunning lake views. The bike path is well-paved and is perfect for a recreational trip for bikers of any age/ability. In summer, you can rent bikes at West Shore Sports which is within short walking distance from the cabin (meaning no need to wrestle the summer traffic in downtown Tahoe City).

  • Amelia's little cabin in the woods is great for a low-key girls weekend or a romantic lovers get away. It is literally across the street from Lake Tahoe, the neighbors are super friendly, and coordinating the space was a breeze.

  • My friends and I absolutely loved Amelia's place! It was the perfect retreat for two couples. We were able to cook a nice meal and relax by the fireplace after a long day of skiing. Amelia was a very welcoming host and has an absolutely charming, well-decorated place - I would definitely love to stay here again and highly recommend her place!
