Our family loves getting to Tahoe and enjoying the natural beauty. We have owned our little cabin for 8 years.
Had a great time. The first night we were there it snowed. Plenty of wood for the stove. Haven't seen snow in a long time. The next day it burned off and we went hiking. Everything was beautiful. Wish the river was a little higher so we could have fished. Overall a nice peaceful relaxing couple of days. Hope to go go back next year! Thanks so much Ric!
Stayed at Ric's cabin over Labor Day weekend and had an absolutely wonderful time! There were 4 of us total and it fit us very comfortably. This cabin was exactly what we were looking for - it's secluded in the woods but still close enough to everything you could be looking for - great hiking trails, beach, driving range, etc. The cabin has a rustic charm to it and everything you could possibly need. Ric was an excellent host and very responsive. I definitely recommend this cabin!
We really loved Ric's cabin. It was in the perfect location and provided a great balance of rustic and comfort -- a far cry from the condo developments offered by most Airbnb hosts, which for us was very desirable. I was pleasantly surprised by the new appliances (refrigerator, stove, etc.). I generally concur with all the other comments here. The only thing I might add is that my friends and I are all pretty short (5'-4" and under) and we had trouble reaching some of the exterior shutters. There are enough windows around the cabin that this wasn't a big loss, though. I definitely hope to make it back to this spot at some point!
Ric is a fabulous host - very communicative. We had a wonderful time at his cabin.
Ric's cabin was well described and I got exactly what I signed up for. A peaceful, rustic refuge in the woods near Tahoe. While we were happy to drive to the busy beaches and dip our toes in the cool blue water, we were just as happy to explore the areas around the cabin and within short drives south and west. As new Californians I feel like we happened on to a special place that yielded great rewards with a minimal effort. Ric's place may just end up being my family summer vacation for years to come.
As a host Rick was quite responsive. He even helped me find a lightswitch I was too dumb to find. I also left something behind accidentally and he offered to meet up with me to return it. What a great guy!
This place worked perfect for us. We were using the place as a base for a cycle event so we didn't spend that much time in the cabin but it had all the necessities with wifi to boot (work great). Beds were comfortable. The cabin was remote and in a very quiet spot. Would love to come back and try out the mbike trail. Thanks Ric for letting us use the cabin.
My boyfriend and I very much enjoyed our short stay at Ric's cabin with our two dogs. We were trying to get away from the noisy city celebrations for the 4th of July and this was a perfect place for it. Dogs got to swim in the river (that is *right next* to the cabin) and then dry off in the sun! We all went on two lengthy hikes, Hawley Grade and through Christmas Valley over to Dardanelles Lake. Both trailheads were steps away from the cabin!
It is a truly beautiful place which any nature lover will enjoy.
What a sweet little cabin in the lovely South Lake Tahoe woods! This is a perfect middle ground for those who aren't fans of camping, but like being outdoors. The cabin is cozy, has a hearty VHS collection, that we found quite amusing, and all the necessities. Truth be told, they had me at "hammock."
Only real downside: Mosquitoes!! Bring your bug spray.
Really great cabin with all the basic amenities. We had a bit of trouble getting the water started (yes, you have to turn the water on in the shed)- but after that it was smooth sailing. We have a 4 year old, a 3 year old and a 9 month old and the kids loved it. Perfect spot to explore the woods and then clean up afterwards. We will hopefully come back again next summer!
Ric is the perfect Host ,his cabin is a dream in the woods.Great place to get away from the grind and watch the stars at night and listen to the babbling creek or warm up next to the fire .., will definitely go again...Anne and Mark.
Great Guest! Easy to communicate with and left our place spotless!
It was great to see Ric and Mimi again when they came to Eugene to visit their daughter and go to the Duck game. They are such easy going, considerate guests and very appreciative. I look forward to hosting them again.
Ric, his wife and daughter were enjoyable guests - enthusiastic, friendly and considerate. They left the studio clean and orderly. I enjoyed talking to them and look forward to future visits when they come to Eugene to visit their daughter - now a Duck!
