Dog-Friendly - Hot Tub - Walk to Lake

The Honeymoon Cottage is the perfect vacation rental cottage tucked in a quiet street on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe.  This vacation home is exactly how you imagine a Tahoe home, wood floors, pine covered walls, a cozy wood stove, and a quiet wooded setting.  There is also a second living area is carpeted and has big comfy couches, a gas fireplace and a TV with DVD player and satellite dish.  The kitchen is well equipped for cooking meals to share with friends and family.  The outside area has a large deck, with a built-in bench seat s and a hot tub that looks on to a vacant lot next door.  All of which can be viewed from the living area so perfect for the kids to play in. The upstairs has two bedrooms one with a King Bed the other a Queen bed, both with quality linens. Please note that in the winter you will need 4 wheel drive and we always recommend you carry chains.

This rental cabin is centrally located for your enjoyment, a 15-minute drive will put you at Squaw Valley or Alpine Meadows and a 5-minute drive to Homewood Mountain Resort.  A morning excursion to the Firesign Cafe which has the best breakfasts in town is highly recommended and in Summer you can walk down in the evenings for dinner on the deck at Sunnyside Resort.  Not forgetting fido, Lake Tahoe is also only a few minutes away and next door to Sunnyside is a dog-friendly beach (unofficial) with lots of sticks for water play.  A mile down the road to Hurricane Bay will bring you to an official dog-friendly beach which usually has lots of 4 legged friends to play with. 
In Summer you can also walk down to Sunnyside Marina and hire boats, jet skis or have some wake-board lessons, golf, restaurants, and shopping are only a couple of miles away in Tahoe City and within 30 - 45 minutes drive they are many more championship golf courses such as Coyote Moon, Incline Village and the Resort at Squaw Creek.   Important, this property does not have air conditioning.  Air conditioners are extremely unusual in North Lake Tahoe.

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.

Had a great stay here. The cabin is easy to find, located just outside of Tahoe City. It is quiet and very private. Everything was comfortable. Cabin is just as pictured and made for a great couples getaway.

We loved the cabin feel. The outdoors was wonderful. Only complaint is the stairs are too steep and the only bath is downstairs and the bedrooms are upstairs. Probably not an issue for younger folks.

We enjoyed our stay here. Had a couple complications with check in but we were able to take care of everything ourselves referring to the checkin email. Great location and quiet area. Would stay here again.

Comfy, cozy & quaint!
We loved our stay! Family of 4. Highlights were the beautiful outdoor spaces surrounding the cottage for kids to explore and play outdoors for hours, all while grown ups can watch and enjoy the view from the hot tub, the location is great, and the size of the cottage is perfectly cozy! We can't wait to come back! Thank you for an amazing get away!

Don't sleep on this one
The cabin is exactly as advertised. Quaint, authentic & sweet. We found ourselves there during a big storm, which cut off electricity & made for more of an “adventure” than we had anticipated, but the cabin itself did not disappoint.

Cozy Cabin!
Our family really enjoyed the cozy warm cabin! Loved that we could bring our pup! Would stay again!

. I thought it was hard to find dog-friendly properties that are also sparkling clean, until we stepped foot in this place.
We loved this place, and so did our dog. I thought it was hard to find dog-friendly properties that are also sparkling clean, until we stepped foot in this place. It is the perfect weekend getaway home, in a nice neighborhood.

Let me start with this: if you are between this and another rental option, CHOOSE THE HONEYMOON COTTAGE!
Let me start with this: if you are between this and another rental option, CHOOSE THE HONEYMOON COTTAGE! I can not say enough nice things about the ambiance, coziness, and amenities available. Two things to note are (1) the pictures don't reflect some nice upgrades to the kitchen counter and sink and (2) for anyone who worries when you don't see a bathroom picture it is very nice, seems recently updated, and has its own heater for those coming in the colder months. For fellow cooks, this cabin had everything you need from can openers to mixing bowls to microplanes to sheet pans. There was also a nice stash of basic seasonings, sugar, and olive oil. It was the perfect place to unwind and was so close to amazing hiking trails, sights, and restaurants(where we grabbed to-go orders to stay safe during COVID-19). The wood burning fireplace, hot tub, and comfy couches made spending a snowy day in magical. We are already planning to come back to this cabin next year or sooner and rent with Tahoe Moon Properties again. Their communication and care made the rental experience easy so we could enjoy making memories

What a brilliant lil cabin. It's in a perfect location.
“What a brilliant lil cabin. It's in a perfect location. Walking distance to a wonderful market/deli and the lake. Our family of 3 plus our Black Lab stayed for a snowboarding trip. There was plenty of room all of us and was a short drive to the mountain. We would definitely stay again.”

Located half a block from the lake, Honeymoon Cabin is a dream home-away-from-home
“Located half a block from the lake, Honeymoon Cabin is a dream home-away-from-home. Perfect for up to four people (and a doggie or two), it's the perfect amount of cozy, peaceful, and equipped with everything you need to have a comfortable, rewarding stay.”

Thank you Tahoe Moon Properties for this cute, relaxing cabin under the pines and close to the lake
Thank you Tahoe Moon Properties for this cute, relaxing cabin under the pines and close to the lake. We truly enjoyed our stay. I recommend booking directly through the property manager, who was friendly and helpful, instead of VRBO. VRBO added unnecessary charges for proving absolutely nothing extra.

This is an absolute jewel.
This is an absolute jewel. I will be renting this lovely cabin again in the future. It was so pleasant and clean, and quite. Though I had to work, via computer (great internet connection by the way), during the stay, it was so lovely to take a cup of tea to the back deck and enjoy the quiet.

Great little house, very clean and well equipped.

The honeymoon cottage is absolutely lovely
“The honeymoon cottage is absolutely lovely. It's easy to get to and right near the main Tahoe City area. The hot tub is great and super well maintained. The neighborhood is also fun to walk around in and very dog friendly. The space is a good size for four people, but very cozy. The property management group is responsive so reach out if you need any support. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone visiting Tahoe.”

This property was exactly what we were looking for. Space to play in the snow, cozy cabin feel and a HOT TUB!
This property was exactly what we were looking for. Space to play in the snow, cozy cabin feel and a HOT TUB! From the pictures it looked a little more secluded than It actually was but to be honest we never saw one neighbor & had the best time. Very convenient location! Had many amenities to make it feel like home & our ONLY recommendation is to have a BBQ grill set :) we easily found everything we needed & have ZERO complaints. My husband said he would definitely come back and my son got everything on his birthday wish list with this location. It was an amazing trip we'll be talking about for a long time. Thank you!

We had a fantastic time at the Honeymoon Cottage on our honeymoon!
We had a fantastic time at the Honeymoon Cottage on our honeymoon! We were pleasantly surprised to see the beautiful fall colors and enjoyed the cooler temps (and some rain) during our visit. We were able to walk to Sunnyside, the Fire Sign Cafe and also the West Side Market for all of our meals and hiked in Paige Meadows just up the hill. The cabin was quiet, cozy and comfortable. We can't wait for our return visit!

the house was perfect for us
We came for along weekend relaxing getaway with our dogs and that's what we had- the house was perfect for us and the dogs and the neighborhood was quiet. The stairs are narrow and upstairs is a little “creaky” but that's totally fine. Kitchen and rest of the house was well stocked and the handyman Shawn was awesome! He really went above and beyond getting the stored bbq out for us and shoveling the snow off the deck. He even pulled out the patio furniture too! Thank you!!

Nice cabin and close to amenities. ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆
We spend three nights in this cabin. It is very comfortable and well stocked for the two of us. A family of 4 to 6 could easily stay there. There is only one bathroom downstairs so keep that in mind. The bed was very comfortable but the stairs are steep and very loud. The property is exactally as.described in the add. Close to Tahoe City and other attractions. Makes it easy to base camp to other areas daily. Come with extra wood for the fireplace. Keeps the cabin very warm and looks awesome. We I'll definately come back in the future. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us.

Wonderful place to stay! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
This is a property in a perfect location. Minutes from Tahoe City. Less than a half hour to Emerald Bay. Great hot tub and outdoor area. Comfortable beds. Felt like home for five days. Would recommend to couples of all ages although stairs would be tricky for an elderly couple possibly. Top notch property!

Great location! Close to everything but still quiet...
We loved the gas fireplace and wood stove.. kept the house nice and warm! Enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub. Great size house for our family of three and our 2 dogs.. Thank you for the wonderful hospitality and easy/ quick check in and check out.

Christmas at the Honeymoon Cottage ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
The Honeymoon Cottage was just perfect for a Tahoe Christmas holiday for our family of three. It was cute, cozy, and comfortable. With the addition of a few Christmas decorations we brought with us, it seemed just like home. We continually commented during our stay, how pleased we were to have selected to stay at the cottage. Though the unseasonably warm weather curtailed our winter activities, we hiked the xcountry trails and enjoyed the splendid Tahoe scenery. We recommend the Honeymoon Cottage at any time of year for any occassion.

Cute Cabin
Adorable cabin with lots of character. Comfortable, had everything we needed. great location near lake, town and trails. . Peaceful and quiet. Stars at night amazing! Bedrooms are upstairs, ( wooden stairs are quite steep) bathroom is down stairs. I wouldn't come with elderly parents. It was perfect for us and would definitely stay again.

Great Experience
“We had such a nice time in the Honeymoon Cottage this weekend. Watching movies, hiking, cruising around Squaw Village and Tahoe City and walking to Sunnyside for a great dinner with a view. The cottage was cozy, clean and had everything we could have possibly needed. All in all, it was a 10/10 weekend. ”

Honeymoon Cottage
Honeymoon cottage was a lovely place to stay in. It was very comfortable and cozy. The kitchen had all necessary appliances and accessories. It was very dog-friendly with even dog towels provided. The cottage felt very private, although there were cottages nearby. We also used the hot tub, which was great. It was very conveniently located near Tahoe city and also near some unofficial dog beaches.All in all, we enjoyed our stay and would use Honeymoon cottage again.

Honeymoon Cottage
The house was immaculate. This is the second time we have stayed here and we love this little cottage, it feels like coming home. The hot tub stopped working while we were there but Tahoe Moon sent the repairman over and he was able to repair it before we got home from skiing.

Guest Review
Overall we had a great stay at the Honeymoon Cottage. The property is an "old school" Tahoe cabin which was exactly what we were looking for...private, quiet and relaxing. The only real problem we experienced was that due to some apparent miscommunication the rental had not been cleaned prior to our arrival on Friday afternoon; this was promptly addressed by a very vice and efficient couple...so no real inconvenience and the property manager deducted our cleaning fee for our trouble (nice service). If I were to make a suggestion or two I would have liked to have seen better lighting in the kitchen and a reasonable supply of firewood for the fireplace (virtually none was there upon arrival, a quick trip to the local supermarket and we were good to go). We would recommend this property for a couple looking for a private getaway or a couple with one or two kids.

The Honeymoon Cottage is our new family favorite. Great start to come into a warm cabin with a bottle of wine waiting for us. Amazingly stocked and clean cabin with great instructions on how to get to and in. Snow plow service was good too during out stay. We loved our visit and will be back

Honeymoon Cottage
We love staying in the Honeymoon Cottage. It does seem , however, that the cottage needs some maintenance. Tub drains slowly, broken window latch in master bedroom, couches seemed old and uncomfortable, no batteries in any of the flashlights or remote control for tv. Patio chairs need cushions. Screen door ripped.

Honeymoon Cottage
Overall the house and stay were great. This was our second time at the Honeymoon Cottage and plan to stay again. The only reason my rating is a 4 instead of 5 is the hot tub was not ready for use on night one. It was drained after we arrived and refilled so took 24 hours to reheat. Since we were staying 7 nights it was not a big deal but had we only been there for 2, we would have been really disappointed -nothing better than sitting out in the Tahoe forest in a hot tub under the stars!

The stay at the honeymoon Cottage was absolutely amazing. Everything that you needed was easily accessible. Great location and a outstanding environment. We loved every moment and enjoyed having our dogs stay with us. Nothing better than enjoying Lake Tahoe and coming home for a soak in the hot tub we will definitely be coming back.
