The SpaceOur little 1930's cabin is a warm, bright and clean little retreat. Our location offers you a nice mix of lake and mountain views, and private surroundings to enjoy. Our yard is park-like on 3 lots with the cabin in the middle lot. There is an abundance of mountain wildlife to enjoy, chipmunks, squirrels, cottontail bunnies and the occasional bear ( do NOT feed any of them please...) and many types of beautiful birds.
We have kept the "Old Tahoe" charm, and added some nice amenities. We completely renovated the cabin ourselves in 2014 to include a Jacuzzi tub/shower in the full bath, Eucalyptus hardwood flooring, new thick carpeting, plumbing, electrical, double pane windows, and some nice dim-able lighting. Also a nice wrap around deck with a new 2 person HOT TUB for your relaxing, and a nice gas BBQ. We added a huge glass slider in the living room for access to the deck, and a nice filtered view of the lake and grounds.
You have wireless high speed internet access, cable TV with multiple movie and sports channels, and a large in-house library of DVD's to view on the Flat Screen TV, as well as a variety of CD's to listen to on the nice Sony stereo. The stereo also has the TV sound hooked up for a nice full rich sound experience while watching the Flat Screen TV.
We have placed a "Sound Machine" clock radio next to the bed so you can listen to "Rain, Ocean, Waterfalls, Rain Forest etc." to lull you to sleep.
We have an extensive library containing a large set of National Geographic magazines and Readers Digest abridged books for those that just want to relax on site.
We have a quiet location, so if you just want to take a nap, feel free to do so (we have blackout curtains!).
We have placed some very comfy cotton hammocks in between the huge pine trees for you to relax and soak up the beautiful views.
The kitchen offers all appliances for cooking your favorite meals, and also has a nice apartment size fridge. There is also a Belgian waffle maker to start your day off right !
There are 3 beds: A very comfy new queen size Murphy wall bed, as well as a queen sleeper couch, and a full size airbed in the loft. The loft is a nice hideaway for kids, as the ceiling height is low. (Many adults have enjoyed the loft too) Guest AccessYou will access your private cabin directly from our street parking area. We have made "easy to follow" pathway steps which are lighted with rope lighting and motion lights for safe access at night. The lighted pathway winds up to the left, PAST the front cabin and through the landscaped yard. You pass through a fire pit/picnic area (for your BBQ enjoyment), then up 3 steps and onto the deck. There is a Key Lock Box for cabin access.
There are about 15 steps or so to navigate, and a small hill, so if you have limited mobility please call for details. Interaction with GuestsKevin and I live in the front adjacent cabin on the property, so please ask if you have any questions or requests. We are happy to share our suggestions and lend a hand with any needs you may have. We respond promptly to any text or email inquiries or phone calls, or you can just knock on our door
We make all efforts to respect your privacy while you stay with us, but will also make ourselves as available as possible to assist you with any needs. The NeighborhoodThis neighborhood is very quiet, as it is only two short connected streets with only 1 entrance/exit. It is SO close to town and the lake, you can walk or bike anywhere you want to go. There are hiking/biking trails at the end of the street. You also have a nice view from our side of the street, without being right above the main highway, so you don't get the road noise, or headlights. Its a relaxing setting!
