We had a wonderful week at this cozy cabin tucked into the trees overlooking a golf course! John and Lisa could not have been more accommodating and we couldn’t have asked for a better equipped place for our stay, from a well stocked kitchen and plenty of towels and linens to the convenience of having a washer and dryer, and even fresh coffee beans for our morning coffee! A short walk to Kings Beach and if we had wanted, beach towels and chairs to take. Also within a mile is a Safeway for shopping. John and Lisa gave us many suggestions of places to visit and eat, which made it nice for us not being familiar with the area. The property is centrally located for all the things Lake Tahoe has to offer, most of all the beautiful lake and surrounding mountains! Would definitely recommend this comfortable cottage!
Great experience and place!
We enjoyed our stay at Tahoe Woodside and will definitely be back! The furniture is comfortable -- GREAT sleep on a super comfy bed! The washer and dryer are excellent and quiet. John & Lisa are great to work with, very responsive to all our questions and made us aware of trails and restaurants in the area. The location is ideal for exploring the area and it is a quick walk to the beach and restaurants. The kitchen has everything you need for preparing meals. Thanks for sharing with us John & Lisa! Overall we had a great trip and would recommend staying here!
Fantastic Late Summer Stay!
My husband and I thought this was the perfect property for a week long getaway for the two of us! John personally greeted us and gave us a quick tour of the home, even though we arrived after 9 pm. The kitchen was very well stocked with pans, utensils, spices, and paper goods which made it easy for us to cook several meals, though we did notice the propane grill was not in great shape. As native Oklahoman that are very accustomed to AC, we were glad to find that fan window units kept the home very comfortable despite the warm temps. The house also had beach towels, folding chairs, and a cooler we used for several trips to the beach. We would definitely recommend this home.
Everything was as advertised in the description of the property. For our needs, for two adults and two small children, it was perfect.

Knotty pine cozy, clean, and comfortable cabin in a very central location
This cabin has everything you need for your vacation, including a well-equipped kitchen (be sure to ask about the frother and coffee maker), laundry facilities, and comfortable beds. The location, just 10 minutes from Northstar and down the street from a 24-hour Safeway, was ideal for us. Lisa and John attended to every need and even had us over to their house one night to make organic pizzas in their extra-hot oven.
