A perfect home away from home for a mellow Tahoe stay.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time and the cabin was perfect for what we were doing. Everything was smooth and easy, the place was clean and everything worked well. Had everything we needed in the kitchen, which we appreciate. Enjoyed how central the location was to everything on the west shore.

This was a great place to stay and close to Meeks Bay beach resort. This cabin is well-equipped.

  • 4 of 5

We liked the neighborhood because it is quiet and down the hill there's a little mom-and-pop market which makes it easier to get groceries than driving all the way into Tahoe city! Very nice deck too!

About Steve and Liz Mosher

Just over a year new to us! We have owned a condo with my sister and husband in Tahoe Tavern for 20 years(and a family condo in Chambers Landing for 14 before that!) and decided to take the leap and purchase a home of our own. We were looking for more privacy and less restrictions than condo living and a place where we will feel more comfortable and spend more time now that we are retired. We love Tahoe, especially the west shore and welcome all visitors; we know you'll love it too!

Steve and Liz Mosher purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Steve and Liz Mosher chose McKinney Estates

It's a perfect vacation getaway. As noted above, we've owned a place on the west side for over 30 years...It's the best place to rent for quiet charm of our home and excellent amenities available close by. From our place, you are central and can enjoy West, North, South shores and Truckee and even the back country of Desolation Valley! In the summer, you are near one of the best public beaches on the lake, during winter you're about a mile from skiing at Homewood. Tahoe City is only 7 miles with some of Tahoe's best dining: Wolfdahl's, Christy Hill, Jake's but don't forget, Sunnyside, Tahoe House, Swiss Lakewood and Firesign, local and tourist favorites along the way! Tahoma Mkt (.7) is great for deli sands and so is pizza parlor, esp caesar salads!, past mkt on right.
