This meticulously designed home sits half a block north of Speedboat Beach, offering guests a majestic place to sunbathe, enjoy the lake view, swim, and kayak on the northern shores of Lake Tahoe. Shop and dine out at the locals' favorite restaurants in downtown Kings Beach one mile west, tee off at the Old Brockway Golf Course two miles west, and catch a few winter thrills by skiing or boarding on the slopes of Northstar California Resort nine miles northwest.

Step inside to find a beautifully orchestrated living space, where everything from the baseboards to the kitchen cabinets was handmade and selected to create a warm, welcoming environment. Come home from a thrilling day of sledding and skiing (ski lockers and four sleds are provided) to curl up on the sofa and choose from a large selection of board games, warm your toes by one of the three gas fireplaces, and enjoy the conveniences of free WiFi, two Smart TVs, and Sonos speakers for your personal smart device.

Begin each morning with a relaxing dip in the hot tub, which is shared with the other cabin on the property, the one-bedroom Little Dipper. Whip up homemade waffles and espresso in the fully equipped and open kitchen with all modern conveniences, grab the two kayaks and your bathing suit from the washer/dryer, and spend summer days outside on the lake. Back at the house, you can light the gas grill for dinner, enjoy the golden hour with filtered lake views on the deck, and tell stories around the firepit late into the night.

First of all, the descriptions of the house don’t do it justice. It is so amazingly and creatively decorated it was inspiring to stay. The house has everything you could possibly need or want. The kitchen is stocked with top of the line appliances and gadgets including the best espresso machine (we love coffee).
But the best part of all was the amazing lake views and great area. We walked to the lake 1 block away everyday and enjoyed the view from the deck whenever we were home.
I very highly recommend Big Dipper and will happily stay there again!

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at The Big Dipper. This house was incredible, and made for a very comfortable stay. We could not have been happier!

Every detail of the house was amazing. The kitchen blew my mind with the creativity used for design. Short walk to the water and a couple minutes from town, it was the perfect location for my family.

We had an absolutely perfect stay at the Big Dipper for a girls weekend. There were 6 of us and we had plenty of room. Every detail of this house is so thoughtfully planned, and we were all blown away by the aesthetic beauty and unique design ideas. The deck was a perfect hangout spot. The beds were extremely comfortable. They have everything you could ever need. It did not feel like a typical rental in any way, shape, or form. We are already planning our next visit back!

Our family returned to the Big Dipper for a summer visit and it was once again outstanding in every way. The artisan, handcrafted details continue to impress us and the location is awesome! The Big Dipper is aptly named with
Incredible stargazing right on the deck that provides a cozy fire pit and comfortable seating. We had another lovely stay and hope to return again soon!

I loved this house!! The wood work and metal work is detail you can’t ignore; and adds a luxury feel to this stunning home. Plenty of beds, bathrooms and all the comforts of home you’ll need. Our family loved sitting by the fire on the deck and admiring the trees, stars and lake view.

the fire pit on the deck and hot tub were most loved especially since the weather wasn’t great. Every inch was thoughtfuly designed including the large boulder in the downstairs shower and the amazing sound system throughout the house. We felt so comfortable and well looked after. Thank you!

We really loved our time at the Big Dipper! Our family of 11 was truly comfortable and entertained at the Big Dipper. The cabin was fully appointed and beautifully layed out to accommodate many people with ease. Nothing was spared in the kitchen and the Sonos system was great. There is a view of the lake from the deck and the sunset was amazing reflecting on the water. Sitting in the hot tub was the perfect thing to do before slipping into the tempur-pedic beds. We would definitely rent this cabin again!

We were so amazed by this property when we arrived! We spent almost 1 hour to explore every single detail in this newly remodeled house. Every furniture and appliance were custom built and well designed and gave us a lot of pleasure to explore the entire house! We wow all the time and can't stop taking pictures: ) There were plenty bed space to accommodate 10 people and kids enjoy the special bunk bed area! We would like to revisit here again during summer vacation!
