This year, host your annual Lake Tahoe trip at this dog-friendly Homewood vacation rental. With fireplaces in all three bedrooms and the loft, an inviting deck, and closeness to your choice of ski resorts and beaches, the Tahoe Pine Cabin will be your new favorite getaway.
Is Homewood Mountain Resort your favorite ski spot? Well, this lodge is only a mile and a half north, easily accessed via lakeside route 89. Homewood offers activities all year long, including summer's Drive-In Movies, the Farm to Peak Dinner Series starting in August, and your favorite hiking and biking trails. Cross-country and downhill runs dominate winter, but a snowcat ride makes a unique experience!
Attack more challenging runs at Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley, around 13 miles away. Both popular resorts offer a full menu of seasonal activities along with spas, restaurants, and shops to keep you occupied whatever your vacation style is.
Back at this comfortable Tahoe cabin, you'll have accommodations for up to six adults. There won't be any competition over bedroom claiming, because each one is stellar. All feature cuddle-inspiring log beds (two rooms have kings and one has a pair of twins) and a gas stove that'll banish any chills. Even the loft, which can double as a family room, has a stove as well as two couches and a TV.
Toss a log in the wood-burning fireplace to heat up the living room while you watch a DVD or VHS from the home's own library. In summer, you may want to congregate on the raised, furnished deck with a gas grill–you can fix a feast of kabobs and burgers for 10 with ease. On the deck or balcony, you can use the home's telescope to search the skies - just make sure you bring hot cocoa if looking for winter constellations.
The fully equipped kitchen provides all the necessities, from major appliances and tools to a corkscrew and coffee maker, for making any meal of the day. Seating is abundant - just choose your spot from the breakfast bar, dining table, or patio.
Three bathrooms will keep everyone happy. Additional amenities include free WiFi
Dogs are welcome here, just note that there is an additional dog fee. The closest Lake Tahoe dog-friendly beach is in Carnelian Bay, just 11 miles north. Just five-and-a-half miles north is Commons Beach in Tahoe City, which hosts weekly waterfront concerts in the summer. And closer yet is Homewood Mountain Resort where you can rent kayaks and stand-up paddleboards to take out on McKinney Bay.

Maria B.Feb 2022
We really enjoyed our stay. The area is quiet. Plenty of room and close to everything we needed.
patricia s.Dec 2021
The location was convenient for the wedding, but the cabin was a little outdated (No centralized heating or air). Also, the internet or WiFi not working most of the stay, but indicated that on the website.
Patricia, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We are happy you enjoyed the location and layout of this home. We have passed your comments along to our local manager, who will work with the homeowner to make any updates. We hope to host you again!
Samantha D.Nov 2021
Our cabin was without internet service after the owner failed to pay their bill, there is minimal-to-no cell phone service for any of the major providers. Over four days nothing was resolved. Our first request for tech help went unanswered. They gave us a $25 per day rebate, which is just insulting, considering we never would have spent the $1000 to stay here if there was no internet. We spent the entire trip driving the hour and a half round trip into South lake Tahoe to do our necessary work on public internet.
The second star is only for the support staff who did there jobs in a friendly and attentive manner (props to Bill) and the fact that the cabin was acceptable in cleanliness and decor.
Thank you for your feedback, Samantha. Thank you for bringing your concerns to our attention; we apologize that our communication fell short of our own expectations. Free WiFi is provided, but please be aware that the connection can be spotty due to this rental's remote location. We will update our listing description to note that the WiFi is unreliable for remote work or school and this is, unfortunately, out of our hands. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this caused you and we hope we can have a second chance to host you for a better experience.
Julie M.May 2021
Pros: Cozy, with cute cabin décor. Quiet neighborhood just a short drive to Tahoe City. Very clean, comfortable bed, nice towels & sheets, plenty of supplies. Good directions for checking in and using cabin amenities. Pet friendly - our corgi loved sitting on the deck watching the blue jays! Obviously in bear country as most of the surrounding cabins had electric guards across the front doors.
Cons: The cabin is not well-maintained. The washer/dryer, dishwasher and icemaker were not working. Some of the windows would not close completely. NO furnace, just a number of small space heaters, some of which work. No fireplace in the master bedroom. Photos of the property are dated and do not reflect current furnishings/layout. No cell service. No smart tv’s but decent Internet/cable. Cookware wouldn’t sell at a thrift store – but the kitchen was nice overall. Cabin is on a steep hillside with parking room for two vehicles at most (bikes on the back of our van, meant pulling into the driveway of another cabin to get turned around.)
Having worked in rentals/property management, I’m of the opinion that you present a property accurately and let the guest decide if it meets their needs. From my observations, I’d say the company is doing the best they can with owners not willing to invest much in the care and upkeep of the cabin.
Julie, thank you so much for staying with us! We appreciate the mention of items in the home that need some TLC. We take this feedback seriously and please know that local staff is available to assist with any issues you encounter while in the home. We hope to have the chance to host you again!
Jaime B.May 2021
It was a beautiful, quiet neighborhood. The cabin was beautiful, homey, and clean. I will definitely rent it again!
Elizabeth H.Mar 2021
Cabin felt very welcoming, great place to stay!!
John C.Mar 2021
Love this place. More place than we needed but a great deal for Tahoe area. Clean roomy and great location. Will definitely recommend to others.
Christina L.Feb 2021
This cabin was perfect for my group of 6. We went to Tahoe to snowboard at squaw but looked forward to sitting by the fireplace and hanging out each night the most. We came right after a huge snow storm and it couldn't be more beautiful. Would definitely stay again.
Brian W.Dec 2020
From checking in to check out. It was so easy and convenient. The entire cabin was clean, sanitized and overall homey. There was enough space to accommodate our family and convenient to shopping areas. We loved our experience and will definitely be booking again.
Juan C.Nov 2020
We stayed here for our anniversary and to get away. We hardly left the cabin the entire trip. Great place and great locals!
Amelia A.Sep 2020
We had the best time in the Tahoe Pines Cabin. Such a great space, deck was perfect for outdoor dining and grilling. We found everything we needed inside. Only thing missing is a coffee grinder but knowing those are normally missing in rentals we came prepared with ground coffee. The neighborhood is friendly and quiet. Easy walk to the beach. Everything was just perfect! Can't wait to come back.
Marie C.Sep 2020
Loved the upstairs loft area. Perfect for kids to play or in our case a perfect work from home space. Living and kitchen were spacious. Nice deck for outdoor dinners. The only negatives were the carpets had stains, but that happens with rentals. When we arrived we saw the front window boarded up and there were small pieces of glass in the unit on the floor. I vacuumed it up and let vacasa know. Apparently a bear had broken the window. We were assured it was safe to stay. No further bear siting. We all know they are there. We are in their homes really, so just kept cars locked and doors locked and all was fine. Nice that they took care of the window immediately. Nice space for family. No need to go out to eat. Bring your food to avoid crowds at the market.
Suzanne B.Aug 2020
Good location, quiet neighborhood, great beach down the street, very Tahoe. Three bed/bath is perfect.
Cynthia K.Aug 2020
Loved our stay at the Tahoe Pines cabin. Location was super convenient to nearby beach access (walkable), hiked up Eagle Rock one day, easy drive to Tahoe City & Meeks Bay. Made all our meals at home due to Covid, and found everything we needed at the house. Sunny deck for enjoying our morning coffee.
Courtney R.Jul 2020
The house is in a great location- walking distance to a public beach and the bike trail. We had one issue and the management team responded right away and fixed it for us.
Valarie M.Jul 2020
The cabin was very clean and had all the essentials needed. Electric fireplaces in every room were a great touch.
Kunaal P.Mar 2020
There were 6 of us out of which 5 wanted to go skiing. I didn't ski but everybody's experience was that the slopes were super close (literally 5 mins away). We were also a short 5 min walk from the lake as well as a couple of trails.
It snowed while we were there and it felt like the perfect place to cozy up in the evenings (although the place is quite roomy) - particularly since there are two "living" areas where we could gather and play board games.
dean n.Feb 2020
Rooms are spacious and attractive. Location is great. But the home is poorly maintained and needs work. Outside night lighting is completely burnt out. The Teflon pots and pans are scratched and unusable.
Hi, Dean! We are sorry to see you were not fully satisfied with your accommodations. Maintenance has addressed the exterior lighting, and the pots and pans have been replaced. Thank you for staying with us!
Alanna M.Oct 2019
After a long day of traveling, I appreciated the ease of getting into the cabin and enjoying all the comforts of home. This cabin is nestled in a quiet neighborhood just up the street from the lake, which made it easy to walk down to the bike/footpath. I appreciated all the amenities but would have liked instructions for turning on the TV, as I could not turn it on or get the cable to work in either the living room or bedroom the entire time I was there. Moreover, one of the remotes was empty of batteries. Due to lack of TV, I actually spent evenings reading a good book, which I haven't done in many months, so it ended up being a good thing! All in all, I enjoyed my experience at the Tahoe Pines Cabin.
Timothy M.Oct 2019
It's a beautiful spot, but a little challenging to find. Google Maps does not accurately reflect the reality of the streets in the neighborhood. Recommend you arrive during daylight.
Jeffrey E.Oct 2019
The cabin is cozy and clean. The dogs have a wonderful time when we go.
Sachin B.Aug 2019
This well appointed cabin had everything that a family would need for a comfortable stay in a quiet and convenient location (Tahoe city is only 10 minutes away). We arrived at a clean cabin and instantly felt at home. Kitchen had all the utensils you would ever need. Grill was clean and functional. Had a great time grilling on the deck. VHS player & dozens of VHS tapes of 80s & 90s movies was a big hit with my family. Internet is fast enough. Heating the cabin in winters would be no problem with multiple fireplaces (one in each bedroom and in a living room) along with many spare space heaters. All in all, our family of four (which included a 5 year old and a 10 month old) had a great time. Highly recommended !
LAUTARO E.Jul 2019
This is a perfect place for a family with a dog. Near the lake and in the woods.
Judith A.Jul 2019
We liked that we had three bathrooms. We were only five adults, but we had lots of room. We were gone most of the time, but we were comfortable when we came in at the end of the evenings.
Jeffrey E.Jun 2019
Wonderfull cabin with great location.
Steve K.Jun 2019
Wendy B.Jun 2019
We loved this cabin because it was very comfortable and cozy! There was great natural light. Also, the bed was was very comfortable with nice linens. The towels were great too! There could be better space for toiletries in the master bath, perhaps replace the sink with a vanity with a cabinet. Otherwise, it was perfect!
Rodney A.May 2019
Our group enjoyed the cabin. It was great to have 3 bathrooms for the 3 bedrooms. The location is on the west side of the lake, about 15 minutes from Tahoe City, CA & about 45 minutes from South Lake Tahoe, CA. The cabin had everything we needed to get started for our stay. During our stay, the snow was packed all the way to the top of the windows in places, but the roads, driveway & path to the front door were clear.
Brandon C.Apr 2019
Very enjoyable cabin. Only negatives: cold water in main suite bathroom and no dedicated backyard (only a deck)
Edward K.Dec 2018
I chose this cabin for my family's first vacation to Lake Tahoe. We found comfort and had a great time as well as the cabin providing every needs we could ask for (on top of my head).
Only downside we faced was that the cabin didn't provide a scissor for us to cut our BBQ, but having Chromecast and multiple TVs certainly made us forget that.
Tracy F.Nov 2018
Our little family (3) was so happy to bring our dog with us for the first time on vacation in Lake Tahoe. This house was great to introduce our fourth family member to the mountains and he did super. There was plenty of room to bring to more friends. Loved the cozy fireplace, big bedrooms and extra upstairs for my sons video game playing. . The location was perfect! Close to everything, including the great trail off of the end of Grand Avenue two blocks over. Great for bikes or walking. We got to experience all three seasons in one week! Snowed on Thanksgiving day. First snow for many of us. Little tricky to get out of the driveway in the snow, however the snowplow was there before 10 AM on both days. Definitely recommend four wheel drive in the winter. The third bathroom was helpful, if we were to bring more family members next time, however, the hot water did not work so great in the master bathroom shower. Luckily we had the third bathroom with the best showerhead. Beautifully decorated! Nice new furnishings, and plenty of comfortable beds linens and towels. We love to cook, so we wished the kitchen had a few more niceties including wine glasses (Please!), more silverware, and some linens ( it was missing pot and pan mitts, extra towels that actually dry dishes, foil baggies or saran wrap of any kind, and even some placemats would have been nice ). The pluses were beautiful dishes, lots of knives, and extra points for a nutcracker and turkey thermometer! The barbecue grill was wonderful, even in the snow. There were great little fake fireplaces in all the bedrooms plus super views out to the forest that backed behind the house. It was truly a winter wonderland! Suggestions: bring your own wood and fire starter kit; and good bottle opener, Plus pet food and water bowls. It was immaculately clean. Only true drawback, is the dining table that is inside the kitchen. It seats six, however, in order to get to the hallway and open the kitchen door it must be shoved up against the wall most of the time. Not much room to move around if you have a large family. And my two men wanting to sit at the table to be on computers which blocked access while in the kitchen. Last but not least, enjoyed the VHS tape movie Library! Would suggest adding some games, even a deck of cards at the very least.
We will certainly be back as this was a great find in Tahoe Pines!
Barry H.Oct 2018
Nice house , the property manager tied up the fireplace with nylon ties so that we could not have an open fire. That was one of the selling points, why would they do that? it was minus 3c , fire required.
Jeffrey E.Sep 2018
Wonderful dog friendly cabin very close to Obexers Boat Co, very good launch ramp. Nice quiet street.
Jennifer A.Aug 2018
House was clean and spacious. Loved the decore. Well stocked kitchen. Quiet neighborhood.
Candy Z.Jul 2018
The downstairs master bedroom was very nice and with door closed noise from kitchen area was minimal. Use of private pier was lovely.
Irene S.Jun 2018
We had such a lovely time, and the cabin was perfectly suited for us. The house was clean and tidy, and the location was well suited with the town, Tahoe City being a 10min drive. Very thankful that we go to spend time at this cabin.
Elise N.Jun 2018
My family and i loved everything about this house. It was secluded, quiet and cozy. Our fur-baby loved it as well. The patio is lovely, perfect for an evening re-cap. We hope to visit again soon.
Kirsten G.Apr 2018
It's hard to imagine this place in the summer because there was so much snow (on April 15th!). But it was a FUN snow trip. Very pet friendly, clean, lots of hot water for showers, 3 bathrooms was a huge plus. The house was big enough for 6 adults and a 2 year old. Kitchen was easy to cook in. Easy access to Homewood (where we attended a wedding). It was dog friendly on a quiet street. We had a blast! There's no central heating, so it was a bit cold, but lots of blankets and space heaters were provided. Also, the fireplace wasn't working so that was a bummer. But we would still be back.
harprit k.Mar 2018
Cleaniness, spaces, kitchen. It was snowing so didn't get to enjoy the outside Deck.
Frances S.Nov 2017
The whole place was clean and beds comfortable. Lots of room for privacy with 3 bathrooms
Bill P.Oct 2017
Nice area, easy access to Homewood and Tahoe City.
Diane C.Oct 2017
This cabin is a few streets off of Hwy 89 so there isn't road noise. We enjoyed sitting out on the patio. It's also close enough to the lake that we walked straight down Park Avenue and accessed a lovely beach on the lake. This is a super location for biking and hiking. We really enjoyed the kitchen and BBQ, cooking all of our breakfasts and most of our dinners. Internet access was good but Verizon cell coverage was difficult.
Jeffrey E.Sep 2017
Will be returning next summer a few times. I called, to have your staff tell Mr.Bennet the cabin was wonderfull. Only downside was the snow storm made boating a no go. However, the cabin was spot on.
TERESA P.Jan 2017
We enjoyed our stay in this cabin.
Little things to improve but in general it was amazing
Catherine L.Nov 2016
Beautiful spot! We had a great time! Thanks for having sleds on hand!
Jennifer Y.Sep 2016
Everything was perfect and we would definitely stay here again.
Sean B.Sep 2016
Would rent again
Tim C.Jul 2016
Overall great experience at this cabin, lots of space for family to spread out, very happy they had WiFi going.
Adrian H.Jul 2016
Very good experience. We would stay here again...as long as there is a new dryer or we bring our own towels.
Winston L.Jun 2016
Pat Z.Jun 2016
Spent two days at the cute house. Furnishings were fine but no phone, no wash cloths and no dish rags and towels. Dryer did not work and wet towels were in the dryer when we got there. Location is good, price for house was fine but cleaning fee was out of sight.
Karen C.Jun 2016
Fitted perfect for 2 families with small kids to spend the holliday. Good furniture and clean sheets. Kitchen appliences worked for the 3 days we've spent there as well as paper and cleaning items. The cabin was superfically clean but definetly need a deep clean on carpet and couch. Cosy and fun with all the bear decor. We didnt use the heat to comment on it.
Dan S.Mar 2016
My group skied two days at Squaw, and the drive was quick and easy from this location. Great house, nice fireplace, would come back!
Bob L.Feb 2016
This cabin is about 4 minutes from the main road to Honewood but feels miles away. Set in a forest, it has a nice hill in back for wandering or sledding. The bedrooms are cozy and filled with bear decor and the bathrooms are functional and comfortable with updated fixtures. The upstairs has a picture window and a cozy living area for reading.
Ron H.Jan 2016
The cabin was clean and cozy, great private low traffic location for the kids and dogs to play outside in the snow. Some of the amenities were not working and we should have been aware of this in advance and Vacasa should have a local rep to contact for any issues, we had to go through their main office in Idaho for any issues we had. Other than that, the cabin was great and would return to this cabin.
Elsaid I.Dec 2015
Please check the internet connection because it wasn't work, but everything else was great
