About Steve and Mary Walker

Steve and Mary purchased The Charming Tahoe Cabin in 2005, fulfilling a life long dream to have a cabin at Lake Tahoe. There are not many places on this Earth that is as beautiful as Tahoe and the Sierras. Sometimes it takes our breath away. We spend our summers now biking around the Lake, riding our horses along the Tahoe Rim Trail (130 miles completed) and now kyaking around the Lake (completed 3 times). Our son, Kenny, says we are going to be dancing around the Lake next...OK, bring it on! Winter sports here are unparalleled. Come enjoy this special place!

Steve and Mary Walker purchased this house in 2005

Why Steve and Mary Walker chose South Lake Tahoe

We purchased our Charming Tahoe Cabin because it is located just 2 blocks from Spectacular Lake Tahoe and only 2 miles from Heavenly Ski Resort. The casinos are just 2 miles away for great nightlife fun and concerts. Restaurants are all within a couple minutes. It's a very warm and cozy and special place.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our stay at your charming cabin. Celebrated my birthday here-had a great meal at Riva's. Found the huge conservancy meadow just a few blocks away...lots of birds there. As usual, the Lake was beautiful, especially framed with the snow crusted mountains. Sorry to leave!

cute house

  • 4 of 5

Cute house! great location. Kitchen had everything we needed. Only complaint were the couches were pretty gross, both smelled pretty bad. Really need to be replaced!! Stairs were also incredibly steep but bedroom downstairs allowed our inlaws to stay without having to climb them.

Owner's Response: Hi, Karen, I'm glad you guys had a great time. I hadn't heard a complaint before regarding the couches, one of them being pretty new and the second being about 5-6 years old. I am thinking perhaps the guest before you spilled something on them, so we will check it out immediately. Thank you for letting us know. The Charming Tahoe Cabin is an original 1950s Tahoe Log Cabin and older homes do have steeper stairs than newer homes. But, we have been renting out the property for 11 years and never have had a problem. Take care, Mary

Cute, fit what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

Property was updated, very clean, easy to access, and heated quickly! (perfect since it was snowing the whole time). Beds were comfortable and the size was perfect for our weekend family getaway!

Well appointed, comfortable cabin in quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was everything we hoped for, and just as described- great location and comfortable for extended family and dog. We arrived the day after a huge blizzard and there was no place to park. We called the owner and and he had someone there within minutes to clear snow for our car. We were pleasantly surprised by the amenities- lots of nice quality cooking and serving dishes- even a water bowl for our pup :) There is a great park right on the lake two blocks away, which we walked to daily, and miles of meadowland close by where we enjoyed hours of cross country skiing. Relaxing in the spacious hot tub afterwards was heaven, and having a washer and dryer to dry our wet things at the end of the day was an extra perk. We are Tahoe regulars and this was a totally different experience from the noisy, overpriced, run-down hotels that are sadly too common in that town. We will definitely be back, and highly recommend it to others.
