About The Owner

Jennifer has been vacationing in Lake Tahoe for over 32 years. Her grandparents once owned a condo in Zephyr Cove and her mother always told Jennifer that she kicked herself for not buying it from them when she had the chance. Each summer, Jennifer's mother would bring home a Tahoe real estate magazine, but she never pursued her dream. Jennifer and Brett were married and honeymooned in Lake Tahoe in July 2008. Tahoe is forever a special place for Jennifer's family. In December 2008, Jennifer's mother died unexpectedly. Jennifer's mother was generous in life and in death, and left an inheritance to Jennifer and Brett that was enough for a down payment on a house in Lake Tahoe. By tears, blood and the sweat of their brow, Jennifer and Brett remodeled this Zephyr Cove home with the dream of renting it to people who will visit Tahoe and create rich memories with their friends and family, just as they have done.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2009

Why The Owner chose Zephyr Cove

A Bay Area native, Jennifer has been vacationing in Tahoe since she was four years old. Some of her fondest family memories occurred in Lake Tahoe, which included her and Brett's wedding on South Shore. Her grandparents once owned a home in Zephyr Cove, which made this specific area of Tahoe even more special for her. Brett and Jennifer hope that families and groups of friends will enjoy their home and build wonderful memories of their own.

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin is located in the exclusive community of Marla Bay. Just two short blocks to the beach and 3 miles to Heavenly and the casinos, the cabin is situated perfectly to get the most out of Tahoe at any time of the year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at your lovely cabin last weekend, and I just wanted to send a quick thank you! We have vacationed in Tahoe the past 4 years, and I think we have found the perfect house for our tight knit group of friends. We loved being able to cook in the open floor plan and not feel like we were missing out on any of the fun and games. And the short walk to the private beach was absolutely perfect. Thank you again for sharing your wonderful home!

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

It was a great property and a beautiful home. We happen to go up when it was snowing like crazy but the cabin made the stay easier to be in while it happened. Loved all the overall feel of the cabin itself and the amount of space that was provided made everyone feel comfortable. Great place highly recommended and would love to use again in the future!

Perfect for our needs!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was perfect for our needs! Warm, cozy, beautiful, and a short drive from the casinos.

The only things I would nitpick are that it was hard to connect to the internet and stay connected, the shower upstairs was a little too small for me, and the upstairs twin beds were uncomfortable (maybe add a mattress topper? I have a bad back so it could just be me). All in all my family enjoyed our stay immensely and we thank you for letting us rent it!

Comfortable, convenient, seamless rental experience

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home in Zephyr Cove. The three level home offers enough space for 6 persons to have their own sleeping as well as relaxing/leisure areas when desired. We also enjoyed being able to walk down to the edge of the lake through the lovely neighborhood. the directions for entry, accommodations, arrangements, and closing were clear. We would gladly stay in this rental again.

Clean, cozy and beautiful cabin

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin! Centrally located, well stocked and clean. Our kids had fun playing games and watching movies in the basement. We enjoyed a short walk to the lake and the drive to stores, restaurants, and casinos were very convenient. The host was responsive and very accommodating. Would definitely recommend and use again!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

From CT - rented for Thurs-Mon in January to see our son with my other two sons and their girlfriends. First trip cancelled due to snowstorm at JFK, Jennifer was more than accommodating. Just returned from the best family trip ever! Place is clean and has everything from fireplace and full kitchen to clean sheets and plenty of towels. Short walk to the beach which with spectacular panoramic view of the lake and snow capped mountains. We weren't planning on skiing and decided last minute to ski Heavenly - brought no ski ware. Went to Goodwill down the road and fully outfitting our family with pants, jackets, gloves for $150 - washer and dryer came in handy! Heavenly is just that - beautiful views of the lake -- a MUST see. Went hiking at Emerald - 1/2 hour drive with switchbacks and lookout point - amazing views. Thank you so very much - loved loved this place! Will be back in the summer! Bob & Sue
