Old Tahoe Charm Meets Modern Glamour – Walk to Lake, Heavenly Village & Casinos

Bedrooms 2
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Modern Authentic Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This 6-person cabin—just a 10-minute walk from the Heavenly Gondola—is a fusion of “Old Tahoe” and modern, smart, eco-friendly engineering. Place your reservation through our siite GoToHeavenly com.

Cozy original pine, wood beams, a US Army Cannon wood stove, and a tucked-away spot under towering pines recall rustic mid-century Lake Tahoe. Meanwhile, 2 sleek, upgraded and modern bathrooms thaw you after a day on the slopes with spa features like heated floors (in both bathrooms), a Hansgrohe Raindance showerhead, and a hydro jet Jacuzzi tub for two.

Another cool feature: our tankless water heater, which generates hot water at any time, for as many who need it. Most cabins at Tahoe use a standard hot water tank—which grants hot showers to the first few and leaves everyone else to shiver and wait while it refills. But with the tankless water heater, luxuriously hot water keeps on coming, no matter how many showers or soaks you take.

Tankless water heating is eco-friendly, too, because it uses cleaner natural gas as a heating element and the water is heated only when in use, instead of 24/7. We don’t know of that many other Tahoe cabins that use this system yet, and we love it (from what we hear, our guests do, too).

In the kitchen, you’ll find new, high-end stainless appliances and brushed granite countertops for the gourmet cook.

On the second floor, there are 2 bedrooms with natural latex and memory foam queen size mattresses, plus a separate sun room/den for quiet afternoons. The hardwood floor is a warm, hand-scraped Brazilian acacia.

In the first-floor living area is a queen-size sofa bed, which sleeps two more guests comfortably.

Downstairs you’ll also find a laundry area, washer & dryer, an additional sink and storage for skis and snowboards.

We stocked the cabin with everything you need for an effortless Lake Tahoe trip. The kitchen provides all the needed utensils, pots and pans. You’ll find a set of eco-friendly hotel amenities in each bathroom along with a pile of fresh towels. Full linen sets (plus extras) are supplied for every guest. Beach chairs are patiently waiting for you in our laundry room—feel free to use them for a sunny day at the beach or just lounging outside the cabin under the pine trees.

I often work from the cabin, so I know that WiFi is a must. We’ve got you covered there, too.


We’re located in a “heavenly” place (ha ha) just a 15-minute walk to the lakefront and a great public beach, and a 10-minute walk (about half a mile) from the famed Heavenly Gondola and a 5-minute walk from the shops and restaurants of Heavenly Village.

If you don’t feel like walking with your ski gear, the free BlueGo Tahoe shuttle stops just a couple of blocks away from the cabin and will take you to the Heavenly Gondola, or in the other direction toward California Lodge.

The cabin property is set back from the main road and touches preservation lots, so there are lots of tall pines and, though there are neighbors, you are enfolded in lots of forested green for privacy.


We get lots of guest comments about our Jacuzzi tub, which is a spacious 24 inches deep and soothes your muscles with 8 jets (4 per person).

We make a conscious decision not to purchase a traditional outdoor hot tub, since hot tubs are high-maintenance require harsh chemicals. Instead, we took that money and bought the Ferrarri of Jacuzzi tubs. It was worth every penny.


We have conventional heat at Knotty Pine, so the vintage wood-burning stove is mostly for fun. We don’t provide firewood, but you’ll find it all over the place in Tahoe for a cozy evening by the fire.

PLEASE NOTE: use the wood stove at your own risk, and do not use it if you are traveling with young children. It heats up very fast and can easily burn curious young fingers.


As a skier, I always came to Tahoe in the winter. But I saw the light on my first warm-weather visit. Tahoe summer is just as good, if not better, than winter. There’s sun, warmth, and a new set of fun outdoor activities…swimming, lounging on a picturesque beach, or hiking or biking the mountain.

All these summer activities are within walking distance of Knotty Pine Cabin, too.

Summer guests can also fire up the gas BBQ grill here and have dinner and drinks on our patio under the pines. (You can do that all year round, but summer is the best time to do it.)

In short, this cabin in an excellent place from which to embark on outdoor adventures and return to de-stress afterward. Contact me today to book!

About Vadim

Hi there, I’m Vadim! Traveling is my passion, and after visiting dozens of countries I’ve learned that to truly experience a place, you gotta live like a local. And you can’t do that at an interchangeable hotel.

So I try to stay at a local’s place. If they are my friends, great—my stay is free. If I have no friends there, I make some and hope of one day visiting (and I get a new friend in the process, a win-win!). If neither of those works out, I rent someone else’s place. In other words, I book a vacation rental.

Vacation rentals are created by real people. There’s always an interesting story and character behind the property, including at my place in Lake Tahoe.

My commitment to you is to provide outstanding service from your first email to the moment the damage deposit is refunded and you’re telling everyone how much you loved your Tahoe getaway.

Vadim purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Vadim chose Lake Tahoe South Shore

Besides traveling, I love sports! Surfing, biking, skiing, snowboarding – all at the top of my list. It’s no wonder I started looking for a house in Lake Tahoe, within walking distance of the water and the Heavenly Gondola.

When I stepped into this cabin the first time, I felt a sense of something deep-rooted and real, preserved over time. The US Army Cannon Heater and Rustic Pine wooden staircase—the best of the cabin’s original features—are still here, passing on the history and coziness of traditional Tahoe. But I’ve also added many modern upgrades, like heated bathroom floors, 8-jet Jacuzzi tub and high-end gourmet appliances, for a seamless fusion of old and new.

What makes this cabin unique

Here is where the old Tahoe charm meets modern glamour, just a short walk from the Heavenly Village. Our two totally upgraded and modern bathrooms get consistent praise from our guests. And don't underestimate the benefits of the heated floors and the tankless water heater, which produces a steady steam of hot water for EVERYONE—which is a huge plus after you come in from a long day of skiing, biking and/or exploring Lake Tahoe.

The US Army Cannon wood stove is fun for making evenings with family even cozier. And the cabin’s location is perfect—half a mile to the Casinos, Lake Tahoe beaches and Heavenly Village, but not in the middle of noise and action, so peaceful time to reflect and enjoy good company is all yours.

Great cabin for small family!

  • 5 of 5

The location was superb. It is within walking distance to Heavenly Village. The interior of the cabin is very nice. It is modern but has an old Tahoe log cabin feel. The cabin has everything that you need - washer/dryer, pans and pots, kitchen utensils, etc.

Very comfortable property and close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights at this property over Labor Day weekend and enjoyed it very much. The house is well-stocked with everything you might need during your stay and is extremely comfortable. The fact that it is walking distance to Heavenly Village and the casinos is a huge benefit as well.

No complaints at all. We would definitely stay here again!

Cozy Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Fell in love with this cabin when I saw the pictures. When I arrived it was pretty much as I imagined. Very cozy, clean and well furnished. We walked pretty much everywhere from here. You can get to restaurants, shops and skiing from here very easily. The stairs to the second floor are rather steep so for small children or elderly individuals it may be troublesome. I would definitely go back.

Perfect House & Location for Relaxation, Adventure, & Fun!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the Knotty Pine Cabin on Glen St. in South Lake Tahoe this past weekend for 2 nights to ski, relax, and have fun for my 30th birthday. We loved the house as it was super unique was a blend of old and new Tahoe, very clean, well equipped and designed, and in a great location for all things fun in Tahoe. It was quiet yet close to everything!

The owner was very accommodating and responsive on any questions we had. I highly recommend this place!

South Lake Tahoe Knotty Pine Cabin

  • 5 of 5

A nice and quiet place... Close enough to the fun stuff, but far enough away to allow some relaxing time. We had a fun getaway to the Lake Tahoe area and the stay at the "Modern Knotty Pine" Cabin helped make it even better. Great communication with the owner. Looking forward to visiting again in the future. Rob & Sana Voyles Fairfield, CA
