We took our adult children to the cabin for the weekend. Great place to hike around or stay inside with a fire. We enjoyed the cozy atmosphere and the tramping through the snow. Absolutely a place we will return to.
March 2, 2009 Nirupa and Dipesh Saratoga, ca
We loved our stay at this cabin. Carol was fantastic, and ever so helpful. The cabin is situated in a very picturesque area. All our needs for accommodation were met and surpassed (and we had 4 kids between us!!). We would definitely visit again, and recommend it too.
February 23, 2009 Deborah Napa, CA
Amazing cabin! The windows in the living room are lovely to look out - especially when it snows. The cabin is adorable and Carol and Matt were nice enough to help us get out after a big snow storm. The proximity to Sierra at Tahoe can't be beat. The cabin was spacious, kid friendly for our two young ones and had everything we needed for a lovely long weekend get away. We will stay in this cabin again!

We spent the first week in August here, and loved it!
It was beautifully furnished, comfortable, great beds, well equipped kitchen, wonderful deck, easy access to some of my favorite hiking trails. We had a big family gathering, so the younger crew (14 of them) stayed at Boyle River Lodge, just a couple miles downstream from us; I highly recommend this combination for folks who are looking for space for a big group.
Carol was very helpful and welcoming, and we couldn't have been happier with this cabin.

Our July 4-8, 2008 stay at the Alpine home suited us perfectly! We rent homes very frequently, and this was the best equipped. Carol was very understanding and helpful. My husband and I used it as a Pacific Crest Trail Lake Tahoe rest stop. We would highly recommend it for hikers and any family use. The location was walking distance to the PCT trail Echo Summit road crossing. Woodland setting was peacful but with all necessary facilities. Most importantly for my hiker husband, it had a washer/dryer, many cooking appliances, and comfortable couches and beds!!! Highly recommended!

My husband and I spent five wonderful days in your beautiful home. The setting was perfect for my husband to relax from his Pacific Crest Trail hike, very close to the trail and surrounded by woodlands. We have rented a number of properties and this was amoung the best equiped to suit our needs. Carol, you were most helpful. It was a pleasure meeting you.
February 15, 2008 Brandi Jentgen Roseville, CA
My family and I stayed here for three nights in February. It was absolutley wonderful. There is more than enough room for a family of 4, it's well stocked and very comfortable. It's almost right next door to Sierra at Tahoe, which was great for us.

Carol was very easy to work with and the communication was great! We will definitely rent again. Thank You!
August 18, 2007 Cheryl & Jim Redlands, CA
Our family stayed at the Alpine Avenue cabin for 10 days in July. We really appreciate how well stocked and maintained this cabin is. We loved being in the moutains and away from the hustle and bustle of Lake Tahoe. The area is quiet, close to hiking trails, and has easy access from the highway. Thank you, Carol, for making this such a pleasurable, hastle-free vacation for us. We are hoping to return next summer for some more R & R.
July 30, 2007 Tom L. Thompson Littleton, Colorado
Our family from Oregon and Colorado met here for a few days around the 4th of July and had a wonderful time. The home is wonderfully equipped and provides spacious opportunity to relax and enjoy family time and a great kitchen to prepare meals. The deck is such a asset and allows for relaxing at tree level and overlook the woods. It takes just about 10-15 minutes to get to South Lake Tahoe, but it is wonderful to be away from all the busy stuff going on there all day and all night. The kids loved being able to play feel like they were in a special place. We hope to have another opportunity to stay here and highly recommend this as a wonderful place to get away from it all. Carol did everything to make our trip special.

This place is Great!! Location, amenities you name it this place has everything you need and its kept very clean. Carol it was a pleasure meeting you and look forward to renting from you again. Sorry about the key thing :-) and thanks for looking for the "grill".
February 11, 2007 Rick San Diego
Three families from San Diego went up there for the Christmas holidays in 2006. We had a wonderful time in the gorgeous house with lots of snow and fun. The house had everything you need. Thanks to Carol, we have had unforgettable memories. We definitely will stay at the house again.
January 17, 2007 Wayne Norton
WOW! What a great Cabin and just 2 miles from the ski lift. First rate appliances and furnishings. Fully stocked and ready to relax. This was a truely wonderful winter retreat for family and friends. I'm looking forward to the return trip!
December 2, 2006 Carie Livermore, Ca
My family rented this cabin for the Thanksgiving
weekend. What an amazing place!! The cabin was
very cozy and very well stocked. Being here was
like home away from home. Carol was wonderful to
work with and when speaking with her you knew
she was sincere. My family has already requesteed
to rent again in January 07. I recommend this cabin
and Carol to anyone!!
September 7, 2006 May and Wayne San Jose, CA
We highly recommend this mountain cabin to any family looking for a home away from home. It is new, comfortable and a lot better than hotels.
August 26, 2006 John Davis, California
Our family of my wife and I and our two young
children had a wonderful time, especially because
we were able to invite guests to come visit. Kids
could stay in the spacious second floor sleeping
area, and a second adult couple was well provided
for in the second bedroom on the main floor. The
location is one of our favorite places in the north
Sierras -- near Twin Bridge and Echo Lake and the
Pacific Crest Trail, and within easy reach of Angorra
Lakes, Fallen Leaf Lake, and Tahoe.
July 7, 2006 Jake Santa Clara, CA
Perfect setting for a large party of friends or a getaway for 2 - 3 couples. Very spacious and cosy at the same time. The large deck outdoor facing the mountains was our favorite. Although there was so much to see and do at Tahoe - we hardly felt like leaving home.
April 4, 2006 Veronica and Hakan Campbell, CA
We really enjoyed our stay. The house was beautiful, clean and very conveniently located. The owners were wonderful -- super friendly, accomodating and helpful. We will definitely be coming back!
February 28, 2006 Robyn San Francisco, CA
We spent a wonderful holiday weekend at the Alpine Ave. cabin. Carol is great to work with - very organized, prompt and helpful. The cabin was perfect - clean & warm with all of the supplies that you might need. We especially enjoyed playing with the kids in the snow in the meadow up the street.
February 28, 2006 Cathy San Francisco, CA
This home was perfect for our family get away. The owners are responsive and a great resource for the area. The home is spotless, has plenty of room and wonderful vistas out every window. It is nesltled in a winter wonderland, so close to Sierra at Tahoe, and a meadow perfect for sledding. Great memories were made here . . .we'll be back!
February 22, 2006 Anonymous Sacramento, CA
The house on second floor allows you to sit in the trees and look out on the fabulous views of the mountains. Perfect for family and friends. It was a wonderful winter wonderland -- we didn't want to leave. We can't wait to go back this summer. This is definitely a house for all seasons.
February 18, 2006 Anonymous
This is a beautiful spacious home that my friends and I had a great time staying at. Carol was very easy to get a hold of, and helpful with any questions that I had about the house and that area. I would definetely stay there again.
