You’ll love my place because it is privately situated on a deep, forested lot along a seasonal creek, the sounds of the whispering creek and views of the forest and distant peaks has a relaxing affect on every visitor. This cozy and recently redecorated cabin feels miles from the busy life, but is actually only 10 minutes from everything you need to enjoy a relaxing and easy get away. The gas fireplace awaits (Just touch the button for heat) beckoning you to sit and relax just a little longer.

The space

The cabin is located on a lot that runs all the way to the creek. While it's not exactly easy to get to the creek, hearing it running when sitting on the deck in the evening with a glass of wine is simply an amazing experience. A conservancy lot is next door which means it will never be developed, so this property is quiet and relaxing and peaceful. Access to many amazing trails await those who like to explore and adventure.

Guest access

The entire cabin is yours to enjoy! Two stories with a main level 1 bedroom / bathroom / shower, along with the kitchen, dining area, living room, fireplace, laundry and access to the deck. Upstairs you will find the very spacious 2nd (master) bedroom and sitting area, loft (not private) with queen sofa sleeper (and private TV/Entertainment Center), full bathroom/shower. 3 Cars fit comfortably on the driveway.

Interaction with guests

I monitor email frequently (EMAIL HIDDEN) but text or call me if you have an urgent situation.

Other things to note

This is a dog friendly cabin (sorry, no cats or other pets besides dogs). There is a $50 one time fee for each dog that renters do need to add to the reservation request. Renters must declare all pets prior to the reservation confirmation. Note: This is a forested area with an active population of bears, coyotes, and possibly mountain lions (along with other critters like skunks, raccoons, porcupines, and neighborhood dogs). There is an electric bear wire deterrent system that you will need to deactivate to use the cabin (it's super easy, just one switch and it is off). We haven't had problems with bears in the cabin, but they are in the area frequently, so special care will be needed with food, garbage, pets, children, and elderly in this area to ensure their safety. Due to the natural setting, no smoking/vape or open flame on or near the property is permitted. This includes you and any guests/visitors you allow on the property. Violation of this rule will result in an immediate cancellation of your reservation and forfeiture of your full payment and deposit. Sorry, no exceptions. Let's keep Tahoe green and beautiful!

We had a great Labor Day weekend - Tahoe was very busy but the cabin gave us a calm and relaxing escape. We are a family of 4 plus a mature Labrador and so suited us perfectly. We loved sitting on the deck watching the wild life and the Carnelion Bay fireworks through the trees.

Brett is an amazing host! His home was so welcoming and we had a wonderful family vacation thanks to him. We will definitely return to his lovely house the next time we are considering a trip to Tahoe. Five stars and three cheers for Brett and his cozy solitude cabin!

Wonderful house - very clean and all instructions for guests are very clear. Brett is extremely responsive and helpful. Great quiet neighborhood in Carnelian Bay close to everything Lake Tahoe has to offer.
