*Tahoe is a beautiful and fun place to visit, but occasionally this area can be affected by extreme weather events.  While we never want things like icy roads, road closures, or smoke from wildfires to negatively impact our guests, it can happen. We ask travelers to plan their vacation appropriately for the rural mountain climate and encourage guests to research all travel insurance options, as Tahoe Moon Properties cannot provide refunds for things outside of our control.  



Dog-Friendly - Mountain Cabin - Short Drive to the Beach - Mountain Views 

Great Escape was built with Tahoe charm in mind, with beautiful lofty knotty pine ceilings and gorgeous floor-to-ceiling windows to take in the Sierra beauty.   Escape the rat race and enjoy some rest and relaxation at this cozy cabin in a quiet neighborhood.  This cabin is conveniently located about 5-minutes from Tahoe City and about 10 minutes from Kings Beach.  It is just a short ride to some of the best skiing in Tahoe and is located close to some great scenic hiking.  When you enter the property, you are greeted with the kitchen and bar area which opens into a large living room and dining room.  The living room is set around a beautiful cozy fireplace with a  sofa couch in front of the floor-to-ceiling windows.  Downstairs is the half bathroom with the washer and dryer, which are conveniently located near the living area.  Taking the stairs to the second floor, you’ll find the two loft rooms, which overlook the great room and lake.  The lofted rooms do have a sloping ceiling, which may prove a little cramped for tall visitors.

Important, this property does not have air conditioning.  Air conditioners are extremely unusual in North Lake Tahoe.
The whole cabin is charming with lots of light.  One of the highlights of this Classic cabin is its unique glass architectural prow overlooking filtered lake views that enhance the mountain ambiance throughout the living area.  The property is in a nice quiet neighborhood between Dollar Point and Cedar Flat with access on the street Old County Road.  It is set back off the street to take advantage of the Tahoe ambiance and offers an escape from everything.
The beauty of this location in the winter months is that you are equal distance from Palisades Tahoe and Northstar for some world-class skiing and riding.  If you are not much of a downhill skiing enthusiast, you are near the Nordic Center for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.  This property allows for the best of both worlds:  you have the serene and peaceful character of the cabin, coupled with a convenient location to enjoy the services of Tahoe City.

This is a dog-friendly house but in order to bring a dog, you must pay a $70 dog fee per dog, 2 dog maximum.  If you bring a dog without paying the dog fee, you will be subject to a fine and are in breach of contract which could result in being asked to leave the property.

Loft 2: Full


OTHER THINGS TO NOTE:

Additional Fees include cleaning fee, administration fee, and local Transient Occupancy Tax.

Great Escape & Great Location
Our trips up to Truckee were simple and fun. On Tahoe, whether a walk on the beach or a hike through the pines, it was never more than a 10 to 20-minute trip. Great Escape was close to most of the outdoor activities we desired as well as shopping, restaurants, bars, etc. The cabin itself was perfect for my wife and me. Very peaceful and relaxing.

Living it Up in Carnelian Bay
We had the best time! This beautiful cabin just has it all… we wanted to move in! View of lake from all rooms, new appliances and big washer/drier in bathroom #2. Very comfortable beds and large leather circular sofa and great tv with blue ray and nice collection of dvds! Parklike setting and lighted enclosed sun deck. We will be back again!!!

This placed offered beautiful views and nearby shopping for convenience and exploring. Nice coffee shops and beaches around, although we came in November, the scenery was just as spectacular! I'd recommend Emerald Bay during your next visit if you haven't gone! The cabin was amazing and fully equipped with everything you needed. This place was sparkling clean as well

“We loved our stay at this property! The cabin was so cute and very clean. We loved sitting out on the deck under the string lights and seeing the lake through the trees. It was a great place to work remotely for a couple days while enjoying the best of Tahoe!”

Amazing views, so peaceful and truly felt like our home away from home!
“Amazing views, so peaceful and truly felt like our home away from home! Perfect for just the two of us, but would be comfortable for 4 people as well. Very clean and cozy. The location can not be beat, it was close to attractions and stores in Tahoe City and King's Beach, which was definitely a plus. We will be coming back every year!”

This is a great place! The location is perfect--in a quiet residential neighborhood with partial lake views from the beautiful deck, and just a short drive to beaches, ski resorts, Tahoe City, and hiking trails. The place was spotless (and they did an extra cleaning since we came during COVID). We loved the 2-story window with great views of the woods and lake, and loved eating breakfast and reading on the deck each morning. This was a wonderful place and will definitely be our first choice if we return to Tahoe in the future.

We loved our stay here! The place has everything you may need
“We loved our stay here! The place has everything you may need- from laundry needs to a fully stocked kitchen. Close to hiking trails and a short drive from the beach. The place does get warm in the day but there are plenty of fans to help cool off at night”

To simply put: this is a great place
“To simply put: this is a great place. It's very close to a large system of hiking and mountain biking trails. Dog friendly: our pal enjoyed the walks and convenience of watching the chipmunks and squirrels from the deck. The neighborhood is nice and quiet (including friendly coyote and a bear, that ran by our cabin the other day :)). You can even see the lake from the living room/deck. Lack of AC in the cabin where we stayed could be an issue during hot days, but that was not an issue for us: the temperature was quite nice, in mid 60s. Another minor inconvenience was lack of iron and ironing board. But the rest of the place is nice: very good kitchen and dining areas, great selection of kitchenware and utensils - if you are into cooking vs. going out you will find it useful. That's said, the location is very close (5 min drive) to Tahoe City where we discovered a great coffee place (Sugar Pine Cakery and Cafe) and to Carnelian Bay (another 5 min drive) where The Old Post Office Cafe is located (the best breakfast in town, period!). I hope you will find this useful. Enjoy! :)”

I would give this place a 10/10, highly recommend it, and will return for sure very soon.
“"The Great Escape" provided my daughter and me exactly that: a great escape. We stayed at the cabin for 2 weeks in June and we were delighted by everything. From the check-in that was smoother than silk to the cabin's location, how well equipped the kitchen is, the grill in the back yard, the magnificent porch that is sunbathed all morning and makes for a great working or meditating place, the cozy fireplace, the even cozier reclining sofa in the living room, to the soft sheets. I would give this place a 10/10, highly recommend it, and will return for sure very soon.”

Our family of 4 thoroughly enjoyed the property and our dog loved it too..-- small but very cozy. Beds good, baths good, kitchen and living room very functional. Location between Kings beach and Tahoe city was very convenient. Being up off the highway allowed for quiet and some decent snow.

Clean and cozy space! Loved everything about it!
“Clean and cozy space! Loved everything about it! Just know that there aren't physical walls between rooms and open space. It's very creatively divided with curtains, but conversation and privacy can be a little tricky depending on who you're sharing the space with!”

Highly recommend! Enjoy your trip to Lake Tahoe!
“The view was spectacular and the location was perfect for a family vacation. It was very close to the local towns but just off the main road enough to feel like you were a local and not a tourist. The hosts were great communicators and offered great suggestions. Fully equipped and fully functional for our week long vacation, with a family of four. Highly recommend! Enjoy your trip to Lake Tahoe!”
