About Laurie Punches
My name is Laurie.
I am an author, artist, muscian and mom.
The log cabin is my get-away where I write my books and movies. Its my refuge, my home away from home and my heart.
As a child, I saved a scrapbook of pictures of my dream home...
and the first moment I saw our cabin, I knew this was IT!
The smell of pines and being a minute stroll to the beach is my favorite part of being in Tahoe.
My desire is to share a yesteryear, nostalgic, homestead restored with all the fascinations of modern comfort without compromising its ambiance has come true. The hand-made, authentic, cozy log cabin duplex, boasts of spaciousness, yet intimate for two which meets my needs for alone time to create and family time to build memories. I have been coming to this log cabin for over 20 years and it still holds me captive with it's beauty.
Dreamt and believed all my life that someday I would live in a log cabin up in the mountains on a lake. Dream came realized more than vividly true, I feel BLISSFUL! :)))
Laurie Punches purchased this cabin in 1992
Why Laurie Punches chose Al Tahoe
It is everything I dreamt of.
An authentic, home-made mountain cabin in the pines...
a few steps from the sandy beach,
yet near enough to the city and all its activities, that I can be away from the noise and hustle and bustle, but skiing, shopping, gambling within 5 minutes.
Hand-made of the most beautiful trees from Canada.
Original owner owned the original Tahoe wood mill, and hand made all the panneling, roof, doors and details. It took 5 years to build, while a whole subdivision in the neighborhood was built. The quality and uniqueness of everything about this cabin is beyond my wildest imagination. I feel swept up in a fairytale everytime I stay, and am sad to leave... and can't wait to get back!
What makes this cabin unique
The full cabin experience. The rock floors, shag carpets, granite counters, rock hewn sinks, lodge pole banisters, huge log beams and vaulted ceilings make the cabin ageless, yet pampering.
