Photos and Description of the Tahoma vacation cabin rental

Cabin, 1/1, Sleeps 2 adults & 2 children

Just steps from Tahoe National Forest, this cozy cabin offers a spectacular view of nature. The peaceful ambiance at this cabin offers guests a reason to do absolutely nothing, completely without guilt! Slow down, take a break, unwind, loosen up, chill out, and put your feet up. And when you are as relaxed as you can be, West Shore is a terrific place from which to do just about everything at Lake Tahoe.

Enjoy the beauty of North Lake Tahoe’s sunny West Shore in our cabin. Our cabin is two blocks off of Highway 89 and backs up to open space. It is four hours to San Francisco and two hours to Sacramento. It is a guest house on a property that has a larger cabin that is also available for rent (see ad 31691). There’s off street parking for one vehicle in the winter. We own the lot next to us and it can be used for parking additional cars and/or a boat in the summer.

We are two miles from West Shore Café and Inn. We are happy to have guests of the wedding party book with us.

The guest cabin was built in 1989 and has just been remodeled. It is ideal for a couple with small children. The fully-equipped kitchen has a coffee maker, toaster, griddle, microwave, Weber grill plus all other eating, serving, and preparation items. The living room has a sleeper sofa (ideal for children), recliner, and a Flat Screen Cable HDTV with a DVD player. There is another Flat Screen TV with DVD player in the bedroom. The bedroom has a queen bed. The hall closet has a washer/dryer.

Bring your laptop, we have WIFI & a hardwire line. We just installed a landline phone for your convenience.


We supply paper products, cleaning supplies, bed linens, and bath linens. The kitchen has staples such as sugar, Cremora, and salt/pepper. We have sleds and portable chairs that you may borrow.

Spring, Summer & Fall Activities

Looking to escape the heat? Lake Tahoe has you covered. From zip lining through trees (Tahoe Tree Top Adventure Park or Heavenly) to roller skating at 8200 feet (Squaw Valley), and from stargazing to sunset cruises. Bike or drive to some of Tahoe’s most beautiful beaches: Chambers Landing ( 1 mile) for Restaurant Dining, Bar, Beach Access, Pier; Sugar Pine Park /Hellman-Ehrman Mansion (3 miles) with sandy, white beach, Vikingsholm Mansion and Meeks Bay Resort (3 1/2 miles). Meeks Bay has a store, beach chairs, picnic tables, a sandy beach, 2 boat ramps, ski boat rentals, canoe and kayak rentals, paddleboats, and guided fishing excursions. For boaters, we own the lot next door and your boat can be parked on it during your visit. We are also close to the access point to the world famous Rubicon Jeep Trail. Only 2 blocks to the West Shore Biking Path that goes north to Tahoe City and South to Meek’s Bay or Sugar Pine Park. Eagle Rock (3 miles) is one of Lake Tahoe’s most spectacular hiking experiences. Go it on your own or with a guide from Tahoe Rim Trail Association. Surrounding the Lake Tahoe Basin are hundreds of miles of trails ranging from easy to strenuous (a hiking book is in the cabin). You can go mountain biking on the trails that surround the lake. Take a 5 mile Rafting Trip down the Truckee River from Tahoe City ending at the River Ranch Restaurant. Go underground fish viewing at the Taylor Creek Stream Profile Chamber. The Lake of the Sky amphitheater hosts a variety of events. Go horseback riding at Camp Richardson Corral. Have fun scuba diving at Emerald Bay. Heavenly offers summer tubing or a gondola ride. Go golfing at Edgewood Tahoe a course that sits next to the lake. South Shore’s Ski Run Boat Company will take you boating or parasailing.

Winter Activities

Our cabin is on a flat road for easy access when snowing. We pay for a snow plow for the driveways and provide a shovel for sidewalks. Our house is next to open space (greenbelt) which can be used for sledding, hiking, and snowshoeing. Sugar Pine Park has cross-country skiing and is within walking distance. Homewood Mountain Ski Resort (2 miles) is a great place for children and adults to take lessons. Many savings packages are available. Homewood Ski Resort has the most spectacular views of the lake of any ski resort in the Tahoe basin. Squaw Valley has skiing and ice skating (16 miles) and Alpine Meadows (15 miles) are minutes away.

Hundreds of additional fun activities and places of interest are listed in our Guest Book. PDQ market is close (1/2 mile) by for GREAT sandwiches and last minute pick-ups. There are two supermarkets and lots of shopping & dining in Tahoe City (8 miles). Visit old town Truckee or South Lake Tahoe for unique shopping, dining & entertainment opportunities. See the website on VRBO that show's pictures and info on places that we recommend.

You must be 25 to make reservations. Curfew for noise is 10:00 P.M. No parties or events are to be planned with more than 6 people including the guests from the cabin.
