TWO PROPERTIES BETWEEN US AND THE LAKE. Close to Northstar, Squaw Valley, and Alpine Meadows ski Resorts. SUPER-EASY ACCESS ANY SEASON, WITH RARE, FLAT, SINGLE-LEVEL DRIVEWAY AND ENTRY. Adjacent to Dollar Point community.


Enjoy this authentic Tahoe cabin nestled in the woods and upgraded just enough to accommodate modern owners and renters, without ruining the vintage cabin charm. Located in the historic section of Lake Forest /Tahoe Island. Very spacious and private. BBQ on Deck. High Speed Internet with Wireless included at no extra charge.

Beach Season: We now also have beach chairs, umbrella, kiddie awning chairs, rolling cooler, floats, noodles, towels, and a rolling cart to bring it all down to the beach. New furnishings and new stainless grill on the deck.

Ski Season: Very close to skiing, 5 minutes to Tahoe City cross country, 10 minutes to Alpine Meadows, and less than 20 minutes to Northstar or Squaw Valley. Diamond Peak in Incline Village is 15 mi and about 27 minutes [per Google]. Large, flat, easy to navigate driveway - on a plowing contract.


Front entry is level with large flat driveway [no front stairs] which is rare in Tahoe, and very convenient for bringing in groceries and luggage. Plenty of driveway for your cars, boat, and toys.

Full Kitchen is adorable, and well equipped with newer refrigerator, newer 6-burner range, new microwave, pots, pans, strainer, bowls, blender, wine glasses & opener, plastic glasses, beach coffee/drink mugs, and more.

• Full bath and extra half bath with storage space for toiletries and more.

• Full size Washer & Dryer - [Bring detergent pods]

Sleeping: There are beds for up to 7 people - however we recommend these be used as convenience options. Max occupancy 5 people. Space is most comfortable for 1-2 couples or a family with 2 adults and up to 3 children.

1. Bedroom one is on main floor and has 1 queen bed,

2. Bedroom two is upstairs, with privacy door, and has 3 twin beds; two are set up and one is a pop-up trundle. Two can be pushed together to use them like a king bed for an adult couple.

3. Queen sleeper sofa in living room; works as twin with bedding un-opened, and Queen when open

Driveway and Walkway are on a seasonal snow removal program and will be cleared for you if it snows six inches or more.

Look forward to having you as our guest!

Note about the new rate quote system: Holiday Rate is $245 minimum nights different by holiday and seasonal rate applies to additional nights. Please request a quote to confirm rates as system is not always accurate. Thanks

We have super-close beach / lake access - and almost as important we are away from the 'Y' where hwy 89 and hwy 28 junction. This is a rare rental that you don't have to cross the highway to get to the beach! In Summer that can take 10 or more minutes just standing there to cross if your rental property doesn't happen to be at a crosswalk. I know because I've done it!
