Lake Tahoe Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect for a family of 4 (like ours) or a smaller group. Well maintained with all one would need. Kitchen was well stocked with all the basics (and more) needed. Location was perfect for us, close to the Lake and stores. The owner was very responsive to any questions or issues. I would have no reservations in recommending this cottage.

Wonderful visit

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at this property. It is absolutely adorable and everything we were hoping for. The location was perfect for seeing all the sights in South Lake Tahoe, and we liked that the house backed up to forest. The cottage was updated so beautifully and the bed was super comfortable. Thank you Tamara for all your help, we would love to come again, or maybe visit your other property in Carmel.
