Cozy cottage w/ a unique style, close to the lake & skiing!

Comfort and coziness is waiting for you in this lovely South Lake Tahoe vacation rental! This cozy cabin is right on the California-Nevada border and has everything you need for the perfect family vacation in Tahoe.

Just two blocks from Lakeside Beach, this charming cottage is perfect for year-round fun! In the wintertime, walk to Marriott Village to play some casino games or indulge in a round of poker. In the summer, the beach is perfect for warm weather swimming and water sports!

This cozy cottage has a lot of character, from shabby chic furniture to hardwood floors, ceilings, and walls. Warmth and coziness seep through the walls of this home, aided by the small stove in the living room, provided for your use in the wintertime.

When it's chilly outside, you'll be plenty warm cuddled up underneath a blanket on the couch, watching something on the cable-equipped flatscreen TV. Many rustic, charming decorations surround you inside, from old wooden wagon wheels to colorful tapestries to antique skis.

Though WiFi is not provided here, you'll have an easy time finding a nearby coffee shop to keep in touch with friends back home online. Besides, it's great to unplug every once in awhile and simply enjoy being in nature!

Your kitchen is compact, but fully equipped with all of the necessary appliances and cookware for full family meals! Before arrival, pick up some groceries at a nearby store and plan out your family dinners together. A small dining table surrounded with five seats is right by the kitchen area and billowing pastoral curtains adorn the windows by the table, letting light stream through the room.

One queen-size bed in one patriotic-themed bedroom and a double bed in the other safari-themed room are great for the adults, and the kids will be more than happy to sleep on the pullout sofa in the living room, the futon in the foyer, or the twin-size bed right next to it. With just one bathroom, tight-knit families will have plenty of bonding time here!

Nearby, you can walk to Lakeside Beach and let the kids play on the jungle gym while you take your shoes off and take a stroll along the beach, letting your toes sink into the sand.

In the winter, don't forget to bring your skis and snowboards along! The area near South Lake Tahoe is a prime skiing destination in the colder months for Northern California families, and South Lake Tahoe ski resorts have everything you could want for a thrilling cold-weather experience!

If you're looking for wonderful day trips from South Lake Tahoe, you'll find plenty of casinos in Nevada, just across the border. This home is right on the state line, so you'll be able to experience the best of both states! Also, Lakeside Beach and Marina can be accessed by foot, car, bike, or water taxi (in the summer months). While parking is free, and you don't need a pass in the winter months, daily and seasonal passes are for sale.

Good price for a nice quaint tahoe cabin. Did not have any issues with the stay and was quite pleased with the price for our stay.
Chris K. Aug 2019
Overall was a nice experience. I didn't want the Four Seasons experience, and got what I wanted with this,...rustic, with ample trees around, and quietness. So thanks for that. The sliding screen door needs some attention though and bring your own wine bottle opener.
Yvonne D. Jul 2019
This little cabin was perfect for our needs. Great location. Plenty of beds to choose from and soft white towels. The porch was nice and the location is what we were going for. Thank you.
Avery B. Dec 2018
Cozy, cabin-like space. Older but very close to downtown and comfortable. Only addition is mattresses could be improved.
Roman L. Sep 2018
The location is perfect, walking distance to the lake and casinos.
Really like the patio, we used it every day to have some lunches and dinners outside.
Old beds , we've found that sofa in the living room had a mattress with a few holes and stains on it, would be disgusting to sleep on it.
There is no bath tub in the bathroom, not a big deal if you're traveling without kids, but we had a hard time to shower our kid since the shower head doesn't come with a hose.
If you're planning to cook in the kitchen I'd recommend you to bring your own knifes.
Manager response:
We appreciate this feedback and have suggested to the owner they replace the sofa mattress and knife set. Thank you!
Jennifer D. Aug 2018
Loved: walking to lake, plenty of beds, cozy cabin, renting the Lime scooters, kitchen well equipped.
Did not like: driving an extra 40 minutes in traffic to pick up the lock box code, no WiFi.
Overall super fun stay
Manager response:
We apologize for the inconvenience this guest faced in retrieving their rental information. We are required to have a face-to-face check-in with our guests to go over all city ordinances. The home does have WiFi, and we would have been happy to assist this guest with the matter had they called. Thank you!

This is a typical mountain cabin. It is well well kept. Small but perfect. You can walk to a nice large beach on the lake, a casual restraunt/bar right on the sand, and you’re less than a mile to state line, grocery stores, lots of shops, etc.
We would stay here again.
Bert S. Jul 2018
Close to everything, perfect for my family of six. Will definitely stay here again.
Nikki A. Jun 2018
House was great! Would be nice to have WiFi
Xiomara B. Feb 2018
This house is closed to everything we walk to the casinos, supermarket and the lake love the location!
Nikki K. Jan 2018
Small but cozy. The pictures did a good job showing what you get.
Frank R. Dec 2017
Awesome little cottage. Loved it!
Sandra M. Aug 2017
Very convenient location to the beach, shopping, casinos and dining. But the house needs a lot of work and a thorough cleaning, top to bottom.
Felicia A. Aug 2017
Cute cozy cabin close to the water casinos and Heavenly Village. Could not beat that location for the price! Cabin with small, it needs some structural help and a good deep clean.
Debra C. Jul 2017
Great place for the value. Don't expect the Ritz but for my small group of friends we had a blast. We sat outside on the deck every morning and every evening. You could even hear Lenny Kravitz playing at Harvey's amphitheater that night! The location is great. We brought our bikes, went to the beach and enjoyed walking around Edgewood Celebrity Golf tourney, all within walking distance. :) I would definitely stay here again in the summer.
Pam M. Jul 2017
For ppl who want an older style cabin/house, this would b the perfect place, so close to everything,walking distance. Very comfortable and alot of room for sleeping quarters. Everything provided in kitchen,utensils, etc. U also get a little welcome bag to take home with you. Will definitely return in the near future.
Johnny Z. Jul 2017
I love the older rustic cabins, it feel like Tahoe. Great location.
Bryan K. Jun 2017
Walking distance to all south tahoe has to offer . A true old tahoe cabin in a queit neighborhood.
Amanda O. Apr 2017
Very cute, little cabin. It looks bigger in the pictures, but it got the job done. Comfortably fit all of us! Wish it had wifi & some basic seasonings though. Overall, it was a great little getaway.
Hector N. Feb 2017
We had a pleasant stay at this location. Family of 8 with kids plenty room for all. Cottage isn't a 5 star hotel but it worked for our trip. Fenced yard was perfect for the kids to play in large yard. Quiet area we would definitely stay again. ????
Carol M. Feb 2017
Great location, cozy and cute!
Will L. Jan 2017
Overall really nice, cozy cabin, clean, all of the essentials. Heat was tricky to manage in each room, but doable. Carport was nice.
Rui Y. Jan 2017
Warm and cozy, reasonable price, very happy experience!
Keegan S. Jan 2017
Cozy place with room for many. Great location as well
Maricruz V. Dec 2016
It was nice place for our Christmas, we enjoy the place as a home and we have such an amazing time together. Great place, in a really good location.
Joshua B. Nov 2016
We weren't too sure what to expect with this cabin and what was provided so we kinda over prepared. We didn't even need to unpack half the stuff we brought because it was already there. Cookware, silverware, cups, plates, appliances, all were provided. Plenty of towels for the whole group, soap, paper towels and toilet paper fully stocked. This was a great cabin especially for the price. It is right off of state line in between Harvey's and the water. GREAT LOCATION!!! I highly recommend this cabin!
Jessica C. Oct 2016
My daughter and I were meeting a good friend of mine up at South lake for the weekend and it was the perfect size for all 3 of us. It rained most of the time we were visiting but it was so cozy inside we didn't mind at all.
This was a fantastic little cottage with a huge backyard and very close to the Village. Even with all the rain we still walked to the Village because it was so close.
We will definitely stay here again. Thank you!!
Ericka C. Oct 2016
Overall this cabin is great to stay in due to the location. I would say the cleanliness of the property was the only negative review that I have about it.
Nicholas H. Sep 2016
Overall, enjoyed our stay. Cleanliness needs to be stepped up.
A brisk walk to the Lake and use of beach were fantastic.
Rachel . Sep 2016
Very Cozy little cabin
Kotaro I. Jul 2016
There was clean and we had the good time.
Zandra P. Jul 2016
We stayed at this cabin for only a few days, but the location made it very memorable!!! The decor and the property made it very easy to feel at home <3 we will return to this property again in the near future!!!!
Brendan N. Jun 2016
Great location and really nice cabin for its size and price. Wish we could have stayed longer
Jacob M. Jun 2016
3 blocks for the beach and 3 blocks from the shops. 4-5 blocks from the casinos. Great location!
Alfredo E. Mar 2016
Generally we have fun
Just a choke thinks the gas heater would t stay on
And o e night the lights went off and we could not figure out how get the lights back on until the agent came
Otherwise cozy place and close to the lake
Kathleen G. Feb 2016
Not the lap of luxury but if your looking for a good price for clean and comfy its good. The location cannot be beat if you want to be close to the lake and casino's. I would definitely stay here again.
Brian L. Feb 2016
Cleaners never came, promised to come
Saturday when we were out skiing. Came home to a dirty house for the second night in a row. Wasn't too happy about it. Reimbursed for one nights stay.
Jennifer P. Feb 2016
We rented this little house for super bowl weekend. Great sized yard for kids to play in the snow with out being on or in the street. I think it would be great in the warmer months too as its walking distance from the lake and state line. It could use a shovel so guest can clear the porch. And a broom for the house.
I noticed lots of complaints about the wall heater- the pilot blows out easily. There is a lighter in the kitchen and space heaters in every room which keep the house plenty warm for when the flame goes out.
All in all a great place and I would definitely return!
Lee M. Jan 2016
If your in a budget this is good cottage for you. The only issue i have was the main gas heater, at first it was working but after 15 minutes it stop. We immedietely called vacasa and they responded quickly and the onsite associate was there. But after another 15 minutes it stop again. They do have back up heater that we used for the stay. Other than that we like the property. It was small, clean, cozy but old. But that was what we paid for. The location was great, close to lake and walking distance to heavenly resort and casinos
Michael W. Jan 2016
A cozy little cabin walking distance to everything in south lake. Good home base if you aren't planning on spending all of your time inside because with a group of people seating areas are tight. All in all we enjoyed our stay.
Stephanie A. Jan 2016
The cabin is a great location, walking to the marina lake, casinos, shops and restaurants . It's small but cozy. Great casual place for families to make memories!
Paul T. Dec 2015
Very Clean and well kept home. It was an easy half mile walk to the Gondola and Casinos and made a great location for visiting South Lake Tahoe. The kitchen was well furnished and the covered garage made getting home easy in the morning after the snow. The fireplace was a great bonus. Thanks again!
