When you’re ready to venture out, many Lake Tahoe activities and sights are right at your doorstep!

Your home away from home is close to Meeks Bay, with a terrific sandy beach and paddleboard and boat rentals. Located on National Forest Land, the Meeks Bay shoreline is popular for its beautiful scenery, sprawling clean beaches, and easy access. The area offers a high concentration of recreation opportunities including camping, swimming, biking, boating and hiking into the nearby Desolation Wilderness.

Also nearby, Chambers Landing has a nice beach and a popular restaurant and bar (described below).

Ed Z’Berg – Sugar Pine Point State Park contains one of the finest remaining natural areas on Lake Tahoe. With nearly two miles of lake frontage, the park has dense forests of pine, fir, aspen, and juniper. Another attraction is the Hellman-Ehrman Mansion (also known as Pine Lodge), a summer home built in 1903. Winter visitors to the park will find over 20 kilometers of marked cross country ski trails and a heated restroom in the General Creek campground.

D.L. Bliss State Park is open to vehicular traffic in the summer, where you can enjoy swimming or scuba diving in the crystal clear water of Lake Tahoe, picnicking, relaxing on the warm sand of Lester Beach or Calawee Cove, and access to hiking the Rubicon Trail, Lighthouse Trail, and Balancing Rock Trail. Lester Beach is a popular location to launch your kayak, paddleboard, or canoe.

You won’t want to miss the icon of Lake Tahoe, Emerald Bay, a short drive away. Emerald Bay State Park boasts 360-degree picturesque views that encompass Emerald Bay, Fannette Island, Eagle Falls, and Vikingsholm Castle.

Just a few miles down the road you’ll find Homewood, Alpine Meadows, and Squaw Valley Ski Resorts. The Magical West Shore has great options for whatever you fancy: snowshoeing, snowboarding, downhill or cross-country skiing, sledding, and more!

Interested dining options? We highly recommend the Fire Sign Cafe for breakfast and lunch. The local market is convenient for a quick stop and there is a pizza restaurant that is sure to please. Open in the summer, Chambers Landing is the oldest bar on Lake Tahoe. The menu features a wide variety of delicious items and a kids menu is also available. A favorite family hot spot and accessible from land and by boat from the lake, Chambers Landing is known for its pristine views of Lake Tahoe.

To experience all the gambling and nightlife that the Lake Tahoe area offers, South Lake Tahoe/Stateline is about a 30-minute drive.

Pet fee and deposit are not included in the rate. Contact us for details.

The property is clean and well maintained. The beds are comfortable and I can immediately tell that the sheets and beddings are clean. The location is great. The only thing I would suggest is to update the light fixtures in the living room and bedrooms. Even if all the lamps are turned on, it is still too dark. Just FYI: during our stay, there were three big ( off- leash) dogs always visiting the backyard and deck. Check before opening the sliding door, especially if you have your pet with you.

Me and the family really enjoyed our stay at the Rubicon cabin. Very clean, cozy and reasonably priced. The snow was beautiful and the driveway plowed for easy vehicle access. Everything working properly but be sure to bring some wood to burn. Stores are near by and plenty of snow parks. Would love to visit this property again!

Great stay. It’s odd that there were very few lightbulbs 😖

Our experience was positive overall. The cabin was easy to find, small but cozy, and a good base central to our stay in Tahoe. The property is dated and a few items are in need of maintenance. The cabin stay was of good value, the neighbors friendly and we enjoyed our stay.

The house was very clean, had a few problems with carpenter ants coming into the house from the garage. Kitchen was nicely remodeled but lights were out over kitchen sink and in refrigerator. Beds were fairly comfortable but I would recommend bringing your own pillows from home if you can. Rental's were flat... Deck was great,kids loved the swing, and trees are awesome. Bathrooms need updating but were clean with no plumbing problems. Having garage access was a plus. We stored our bikes in there when not using them. Washer and dryer came in very handy. Close to the main highway and local grocery store. We had three children age 6, 4, and 2. Even though they were a nice touch, we had to put away some of the doodads used for decoration as they were breakable (plates) or heavy (large metal candlesticks). Street was fairly busy with traffic.

The cabin was clean and well stocked with the basics. We really appreciated the sleeping options, as two rooms had two beds. The location was great.

The only suggestion I have is that the downstairs bedroom did not have proper window coverings. No blinds, and curtains that didn’t stretch across the length of the window. The room is at the front of the house so not having privacy was pretty inconvenient. Other than that, it was a great rental!

First cabin me and my family ever attended

We enjoyed staying in what we, and others, described as a real Old Tahoe cabin, even though there were a few drawbacks. It was very appealing with a woodsy look and great fireplace and deck, but the beds were not husband had to sleep on the living room sofa, since two of us in the bed made the mattress sink dramatically in the middle. It was ok for just one. There was noise from trucks, etc., but that usually ended overnight, but we all wore earplugs overnight. The house was clean and the property very comfortable. Lots of books and games were provided, but the kitchen could be better stocked with some cooking basics. There were no wine glasses. We all agreed that it was in a good location, other than the proximity to the street. The propert manager couldn't have been more helpful, though. We would recommend this rental property without hesitation, but with full knowledge of the drawbacks.

We have participated in an annual family reunion in Homewood for 45 years!

The cabin was comfortable and cozy. They had everything we needed for our stay (even kitchen scissors) and everything was in working order. The mattresses were all firm. The only drawback for me was the inconvenience of the electric bear wire that has to be fastened and unfastened as you come and go through the outside doors.

My family enjoyed the close proximity to Chambers Landing. The house was OK. It was comfortable. The deck out back with the bbq was a highlight of the house. Stove needs to be updated as we tried to cook on it, but burners were very inconsistent. Downstairs shower needs to be repaired: doors almost impossible to slide and rotting marlite around window was an eyesore.

Great house with everything we needed close to Homewood. Plenty of space for our family of 6. The beds were comfortable and it was very clean and well kept. The neighborhood was quiet and off the main street. The only problem we had was finding the location of the home. We drove in when it was dark. The house numbers go from 406 to 408 to 412 to 407 all on the same side of the street. So when you see 406 and 408 just keep driving. When we called the rental company to get help with directions they seemed very annoyed and after helping us with directions actually hung up on us. Other than that everything was great.

they had it all

this property was great. well stocked just like being at home, away from home. my family and i enjoyed our winter stay. the house was cozy, we didn't eat out at all i cooked everyday. there was snow right outside. short distance from homewood for skiing and a sledding area for kids and adults also a short distance away. on the downside i could not wait to get back to my own bed, the beds are extremely hard. there are no outside lights on the property making it impossible to do anything at night. i never seen the property manager the whole week. overall i give this property a 6.

Other than the kitchen sink which fell probably as a result of a recent remodel our stay was very enjoyable. The home was clean and proved to be ideal for our family's vacation needs.
