Please note: there is no air conditioning at the property.  This is standard in many homes in the area due to the elevation. Temperatures may rise during the day, but then fall drastically at night which helps to keep the home cool.  *Also, to make room for the community BBQ grill, folding chairs are provided to guests for use of the fire pit.*

Ideal for groups, the 4-bedroom private lodge is the host home of Cedar Crest Cottages, a historic vacation retreat located steps from the beach and a one-minute drive from Homestead Mountain Resort. A cozy foyer with stone floors and charming wooden bench greets guests as they enter, offering a welcoming place to discard ski boots or beach gear. Designed for conversation, board games or reminiscing after a day on the lake or mountain, the living room features two full-length leather sofas and matching armchairs that frame an impressive stone fireplace. A flat-screen TV adds entertainment when you want to unwind. Hardwood floors, high ceilings and built-in bookshelves create the feeling of a European alpine lodge. The fully equipped kitchen, well-appointed for the family chef, features cutting-board countertops and every appliance needed to craft home-cooked dinners. A 4-seat dining table overlooks the woods outside, while a large, furnished deck just off the living area adds a table and BBQ grill for dining al fresco.

Between four spacious bedrooms, Owl Cottage comfortably sleeps up to 8 guests. The master bedroom located on the main level offers a king bed. This light-filled room, styled with modern lodge decor, features plush bedding, hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings and a private entrance to the deck, allowing natural light to stream in. The en-suite bath has a deep soaking tub and separate shower. The guest master also located on the upper level offers a queen bed. The second upper-level bedroom has a private deck, vaulted ceilings, and a full dresser. Like the master, this room is full of natural light. The third bedroom located on the upper level offers a king bed. Tastefully styled with cedar accent furniture, this room features hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, twin nightstands and picture windows. The fourth bedroom also located on the upper level offers a king-sized bed which can be converted to two twins upon request. Large picture windows offer forest views. Guests outside the master bedroom share a full bathroom with a tub shower and a separate powder room for convenience.

Owl Cottage also has a washer and dryer to keep ski clothes toasty and beach towels dry for the next day’s adventures. As a guest of Cedar Crest Cottages, you’ll enjoy access to the community BBQ grill and oversized fire pit with filtered lake and mountain views. In the summer, stroll to the beach across the street for swimming, sailing and boating on the lake, or hike through the surrounding mountains. In the winter, drive less than two minutes to the family-friendly Homestead Mountain Resort, or just 25 minutes to the varied terrain of Squaw Valley. The restaurants, shops and entertainment of Tahoe City is just 10 minutes away. Whether you’re planning a small family vacation or a larger group getaway, with cozy conversation spaces, flexible accommodations and a prime location to explore Lake Tahoe, Owl Cottage is an ideal setting for reconnecting and rejuvenating.
