charming cabin

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay among the peace and quiet. The wildlife was abundant and the hiking also. The lake was farther from the cabin than anticipated.

A wonderful week by the lake

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (two adults, plus 6 year old and 3 year old) and our chocolate lab had a great week at the cabin.

The cabin: fully functional kitchen with a generous mini-fridge. Comfortable living room with internet (dad chose to use, mom chose to be free of all electronics for the week). Plenty of extras around the place like blankets, sunscreen, extra shampoo in case you forget anything.

Around the lake: 5 minute walk to the community dock where there is a kayak we could use (which we did use many times) along with life jackets available in the cabin for adults and kids. About a 20 minute dock down to the store and public beach.

We would recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet week by the lake. We were able to do all our favorite Lake Tahoe activities and yet really unwind through the week. Thank you!

San Jose Ca.

This is a cabin in the woods, rustic, comfortable with all the amenities you need.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Mr. James cabin. James was responsive and helpful. He even sent us a text alert that bears were in our neighborhood. The kayak at the dock was a great surprise the lake is spectacular.

The deck and furniture was covered with tree sap so we didn't spend as much time out there as we would have liked but all in all we enjoyed our stay and would like to stay there again.

Thanks James it was a great getaway for my wife and I.

All the best,

John Cimino
