About the property

Cabin, 1/1, Sleeps 2 adults & 2 children under 12

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.

We are two miles from West Shore Café and Inn. We are happy to have guests of the wedding party book with us. We are not licensed for events - parties, bridal showers, weddings, etc.

Enjoy the beauty of North Lake Tahoe’s sunny West Shore in our guest 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. 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.

The guest cabin was built in 1989 and has just been updated. It is ideal for a couple with small children. The fully-equipped kitchen has a coffee maker, microwave, plus all other eating, serving, and preparation items. The living room has a queen sleeper sofa, 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. There’s a Weber grill and chairs on the deck.

This is a guest house on a property that has a larger cabin that is also available for rent (see ad 31691). The main cabin may be rented by other guests during your stay.

Bring your laptop, we have WIFI. We just installed a landline phone for your convenience. We have provided 2 sleds and portable chairs that you may borrow.

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.

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. 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.

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.
