Joan is an amazing owner, who helped organize my extended family's stay over a 4th of July vacation with outstanding service. This home is full of family heirlooms, yet Joan shares this jeweled masterpiece with the world, and staying here is an absolute delight. In every corner and direction you will find this amazing cozy log home filled with tasteful mementos that are clearly held dearly, and likely hold untold stories about adventures near and far. Do yourself and your loved ones a favor and have a once-in-a-lifetime visit to this treasure trove of memories that will in turn become part of your own family's lore by trip's end. In my opinion, a travel magazine should do an entire article about this home, as it is truly a treat to experience!

“Best Tahoe Stay”
Reviewed August 9, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a great time!!! I searched for a dog friendly place because I wanted a true family vacation and didn't want to leave my two pups in a kennel. After searching the criteria I landed on this beautiful cabin. Not only did the dogs have the best time their humans did too. The cabin was perfect. Kitchen had everything we needed with enough supplies for at least fifty people. Coffee maker, and french presses were used daily a closet full of linens, the place was well stocked. It was a very comfortable and entertaining place. The guys played horseshoes daily and the dogs had a huge yard to run around. The home is completely gated with lots of privacy. Jacuzzi was a nice touch and big enough for 6 people. Can't say enough about Joan and Paul they were very helpful , extremely accommodating and available to answer any questions day or night. We rented the main house but will certainly rent the studio next round and invite a few more people and have a bigger party.

“Beautiful handcrafted cabin in a great location on the lake”
Reviewed July 1, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

From first contact to final check-out, I felt like I was dealing with a long time family friend who was lending me the cabin for the week. Joan was super helpful and attentive with addressing any questions or needs and made sure we were all set for our arrival. My friends and I rented the cabin for a week in late May to attend a wedding over Memorial Day weekend. We were thrilled with the cabin and sad to leave when the vacation was over. They have a beautiful fireplace that is so easy to turn on each morning while you sip your coffee. Or at night while you enjoy good conversations or play board games with your friends. As it turned out we had a week of rain and unusually cold temps. However staying at the cabin made us feel like we were able to still have a great vacation as the ambiance inside was so nice and encouraged us to just relax.We all got a kick out of the O'Keefe and Merritt stove in the kitchen. A true working antique that did everything we needed it to - she worked like a champ. A beautiful appliance. There are lots of clean and comfortable beds in the house and the kitchen is specious and well stocked. It was great to be able to do laundry while we were there with a full size washer and dryer in the garage. We also took advantage of the propane Webber grill, the bikes in the garage and also the hot tub. This cabin provides an incredible value with a very hospitable owner. There is also a separate apartment over the garage that a few of the other wedding guests stayed in. They were equally happy with the apartment and their proximity to us was fantastic and convenient. I highly recommend this cabin and location in South Lake Tahoe.

House is beautiful - homey and comfortable – with all the conveniences – washer/dryer, microwave, dishwasher, hot tub, cookware, TV, wifi, games, horseshoes, books, etc. Plus, it's literally a couple minute walk to the beach and maybe 5-10 minute drive to Heavenly and all the casinos. Definitely would stay here again!

“Perfect log cabin close to everything”
Reviewed April 21, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

people found this review helpful

Our family of 6 stayed in this beautiful log cabin for 5 days in late April 2014. It is gorgeous, cute, clean, and well-stocked. The hot tub rocks, there are both gas and charcoal BBQs, the back yard is fenced in with horseshoes and a croquet set. They've got bikes, a canoe, an honor bar (restock what you use), place settings for at least 30 people, anything you might need in the kitchen (tons of spices, condiments, and coffee, and both a pot and a french press)... a washer and a dryer, a garage, it's right by the lake and close to tons of activities.

There are 3 bedrooms - One that sleeps 4 (with as many beds), a master bedroom with a king and a daybed, and a downstairs bedroom with a queen. There's also a single loft bed, in a corner near the top of the stairs, and the dining room downstairs converts pretty easily into a bedroom (it's a nice trundle that will sleep two and isn't in the way of the dining table). The claim of "sleeps 11" is legit, although it would be a somewhat tight 11.

The furniture is COMFY - leather couches and chairs in the living room. Big covered back porch with a large dining table and chairs/bench. Big covered front porch with a swing and rocking chairs. Fast wifi (40Mb downstream speed, yay) and cable TV service. HDTVs in both the living room and master bedroom.

Beautiful construction, just beautiful. We absolutely loved this place. The owner, Joan, is a pleasure to work with. I hesitate to leave it a great review because I don't want it to be booked the next time we want it, but that's selfish! It deserves it, and so do Joan and Paul for having such an awesome place. Thanks so much. We can't wait to come back.
