Lastly, one of our favorite authors, Samuel Clemens of Mark Twain Fame, once wrote 'To breathe the air that angels breathe, go to Lake Tahoe.' He's right. The air with the sweet, clean pine scent is absolutely wonderful.

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 cabin in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

This place is perfect for a small family and dogs. The location was perfect for everything that we did in Tahoe. The Owners were very generous, and very quick to respond. I would highly recommend this vacation rental in Tahoe.

The stairs are a little steep to go up and down, and wish there was a little lawn in the back to hang out on.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed the Charming Tahoe Cabin. We love it, too! The Cabin is an original 1951 Tahoe Log Cabin and older homes do have steeper stairs than today's homes and we have been renting out the cabin for 11 years without a problem. Lawns do a lot of damage to the Lake regarding fertilizing, etc., so we have a beautiful sandy soil in the back which has trees and flowers all around it and a 6 foot fence. Thank you for staying with us! Mary

Loved the Charming Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the Charming Cabin! My dog loved exploring the yard. We walked to Regan Beach everyday. Bikes came in handy for exploring. Very comfortable home and the location can't be beat! We're planning our next summer getaway already! Thanks, Mary and Steve!

A comfortable cabin in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the proximity to the lake, we were able to walk to the dog beach every morning. Evenings were spent watching the sunsets from the park at Regan Beach. The cabin was within easy driving distance to beaches, restaurants and stores. The fenced-in yard was perfect for our dog and for sitting and having meals, and the bikes were handy for exploring the area. The hot tub, while not really in a private location, it is within view of the neighbors, was nice to have. The cabin was clean and well stocked. Parking was spacious. Be advised, the stairway to the upstairs rooms is very narrow and steep. If you have trouble with stairs, as I do, it will be a difficult climb. The downstairs bedroom was okay, it would have been nice to have had a ceiling fan in there, too. Overall, we had a great stay and would definitely consider staying here again.

Owner's Response: Hi, Esther, I am so glad you guys had a great time at the Charming Tahoe Cabin. We had to move the hot tub and it doesn't have as much privacy we had before, so we are planning on putting in a higher fence in a few weeks to make it more private. It still is pretty private now with all the vegetation, but we will make it even better. Also, regarding the stairs, the Charming Tahoe Cabin is an original 1951 Tahoe Log Cabin and older homes do have steeper stairs than newer homes. Thank you and we hope you can visit us again soon. Mary

Okay stay

Mattresses are terrible! Up stairs could use more cooling features for summer time. But overall we enjoyed are stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at The Charming Tahoe Cabin. We have 5 beds all with fairly new mattresses, only 2-3 years old, so I am not sure which beds you didn't like the mattresses. We have been renting out this cabin for 11 years now and have never had this type of complaint. Once a few years ago, a woman complained about 1 of the beds and we found out the board under the bed had come loose and the mattress was sagging. We fixed that and have never had another complaint. I will check the boards in all the beds to be sure everything is working right. We have also installed more fans in the rooms upstairs and with Tahoe nights getting down to 40 degrees or so in the summer, it will keep the rooms cooIer if the guests want that. I appreciate you telling us. Update: We did check the boards under the beds and saw we had 1 bed which the board was knocked out. We fixed it. Thanks for letting us know. Thank you, Mary
