The space
Due to high visitation and staffing constraints, local area offerings such as restaurants, bars, shopping, and shared amenities may have limited hours or availability. Cell phone and internet service may also be impacted during high visitation periods. Please contact us at 877.805.7794 to discuss the impact during your stay dates.

A charming modern cabin in the heart of the West Shore, Owl Cottage sits on a quiet, forested lot, surrounded by cedar trees. 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.

*Please be advised that this home does not have air conditioning.

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:

Primary Bedroom - Main Level
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.

Guest Primary - Main Level
Queen Bed
The second main-level bedroom has a private deck, vaulted ceilings, and a full dresser. Like the primary, this room is full of natural light.

Bedroom 3 - Upper Level
King Bed
Tastefully styled with cedar accent furniture, this room features hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, twin nightstands and picture windows.

Bedroom 4 - Upper Level
King Bed (or two Twins upon request)
This bedroom offers a king-sized bed which can be converted to two twins upon request). Large picture windows offer forest views.

Guests outside the primary 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.

Natural Retreats is your guide to life’s most amazing experiences. We stop at nothing to deliver the great outdoors in the way it's meant to be experienced, shared, and remembered—whether it’s uncovering breathtaking destinations, creating custom travel adventures, or offering on-location support that allows our guests to maximize every minute of their stay. The power behind what we do is our Xplore team of travel experts. These individuals (yes, they’re real humans), are just a call, click, or chat conversation away from offering custom, insider knowledge during each step of your journey. They’ve spent time at our destinations, stayed at our retreats, eaten at local restaurants, and scouted out the best experiences and things to do. They can make your getaway easier by arranging local transportation, stocking the refrigerator to fit your needs, and book local services. They’re stationed on the ground at each of our destinations to greet you when you arrive, help you make your getaway more memorable, and smooth any snags along the way. #inspiredtostay #inspiredtoplay
