Modern Mountain A-Frame – Renting cabin in Lake Tahoe rental cabins

This two bedroom A-frame cabin is situated between Northstar, Squaw Valley, Tahoe City and Kings Beach.

It has recently been renovated and has a fully equipped kitchen as well as a gas fireplace, and plenty of windows to enjoy the views!

Guest review: “Fantastic stay at this modern cabin in amidst beautiful pine trees. We stayed here for 6 day & nights and had a fantastic time. Anne and Cameron thought of everything for the guests: Speaker for music, immersion blender for cooking, snow plow service for the driveway so that we are not stuck, extremely thorough cleaning (including mattress cover wash after every stay) to prevent Covid, small space heater for room downstairs to keep every room warm. And great design and taste that uses every inch of the space in the most functional manner.

The best part is vicinity to nature. We took our 10-month old in a carrier and took daily walks in the forest that was literally 2 blocks away. Par course trail that is 5 minutes drive away with paved road between beautiful pine trees that is great for stroller walks. Fantastic value.” – Rebecca, November 2020

Absolutely love this A-Frame and I would come back in a heartbeat. It’s a magical little slice of the Tahoe area. We never wanted to leave!

Guest review: “We loved our stay at the Tahoe A-Frame. The home was warm and cozy with every amenity at our fingertips. Spotlessly clean to boot. The kitchen was well stocked and so convenient for cooking while staying connected to the rest of the group. The hot tub was convenient and easy to get in and out of especially to make the mad dashes in the cold.

Communication with our hosts was immediate. We were so impressed that they had their property manager deliver a shovel well ahead of the snow. Just knowing they were keeping tabs on the weather was reassuring. Finally, the sweet little Christmas tree was the first thing that greeted us when we walked in the door adding to the warmth and coziness of the place. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone.” – Deborah, November 2020
