Do you like the esthetics of Mad Men and would love to dwell in that era if even only for a week or weekend? Welcome to the Tahoe cabin that Don Draper would escape to. This adorable A frame was built in the 60's and newly decorated with the 60's in mind. The Mad Men cabin has all the retro vibes of that era from the sleek furniture to the original 60's ski movie posters. Have a martini from the antique shaker and martini glasses and enjoy the view from the deck or the mod living room.

The Mad Men Cabin is a unique North Tahoe Vacation Rental home on a private road backing up to 400 square miles of forest. Centrally located to Tahoe City and the stunning shores of Lake Tahoe, this three bedroom Mad Men stylized Tahoe cabin is a perfect getaway for family and friends. You will love the retro 60's furnishings, wood stove, well-equipped kitchen and secluded sunny front and back porch areas. This peaceful location is so relaxing, it feels like there are no other people around--just like Don Draper would prefer.

This North Shore cabin is located on a private road that backs up to pristine forest for hiking, mountain biking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing. It is a 5-minute excursion to the lake and a 5-minute drive to Tahoe City with restaurants, bars, cafes, and even an organic grocery store. The Mad Men cabin is centrally located to all of the major ski areas of North Lake Tahoe (Incline, Homewood, Mt. Rose, Northstar, Squaw Valley, and Alpine Meadows). Tahoe City Cross Country Ski Area with it's 65 kilometer trail network is right out the front door.

The living room has comfortable seating, a 47" flat screen TV with DVD, cable TV,DVR, HBO and Showtime, Cinamax, Blue Ray player, and a surround theater system with ipod docking station and CD player. The wood stove puts out plenty BTUs of heat and the wood is provided. The mod dining room table has 6 comfortable chairs and the breakfast bar seats an additional two.

The well-equipped kitchen is perfect for making family-style dinners or tasty appetizers to share out on the sunny quiet deck overlooking the forest. This cabin is fantastic for entertaining with its expansive great room (kitchen, dinning room and living room are all interconnected) and its well-stocked glassware.

Tahoe City is only a few miles away with its great restaurants, shopping and Common's Beach. The shores of Carnelian Bay lie directly below the Mad Men cabin with a robust variety of water sports from boating to kayaking to stand-up paddle boarding (SUP).

My wife and I stayed at the Mad Men cabin. It was funky, perfectly located for a quiet week away from crowds, and very relaxing. We loved it

Cute cabin needs TLC

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed this area of Lake Tahoe and it was such a beautiful Thanksgiving get away for the family. Plenty of room for 5 adults and 2 kids, 1 dog. Hot tub was a nice plus. However, cabin is in need of work; kitchen is quite small, with little counter space. Storage space is limited as well. Loading the dishwasher and connecting it to the kitchen faucet takes up all the room, and the instructions say do not leave while dishwasher is in operation. So, that makes it inconvenient. Cleaning products are in disarray, Organization is needed as well.

Thr stay was Tahoe perfect.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was a perfect little tahoe cabin. The kitchen was fully stocked. The hot tub was a nice bonus. Having dogs and appreciating the outdoors, having the trails right out the front door was heavenly.
