Steelhead Mountain Retreat is the quintessential North Lake Tahoe family cabin, the kind you might remember visiting from childhood. The 3 bedroom 1 1/2 bathroom vacation home is situated in the family-oriented North Shore neighborhood of Kings Beach on Lake Tahoe. This vacation rental is perfect for a family or small group interested in skiing at Northstar at Tahoe ski resort, one of Lake Tahoe’s most family-friendly ski resorts. Kings Beach also offers a large supermarket, a movie theatre, some great restaurants ( try “Lanza’s”, a family-style Italian restaurant that has become a Tahoe staple for generous, reasonably priced meals), and shopping. Drive less than 5 minutes to the Nevada state line for big-name music and gambling at the North Shore Casinos.
The house is situated on a large lot with a front and back deck, and a spacious fenced in yard, which provides plenty of space for kids to build snowmen and have snowball fights, or for the family dog to play. There is off street parking for 2 cars, so you never need to worry where guests will park during the winter. Important, this property does not have air conditioning. Air conditioners are extremely unusual in North Lake Tahoe.
The living room at Steelhead Cottage has a relaxed mountain charm. There is a comfortable 6 person sectional, a love seat and 2 armchairs gathered around the traditional wood burning fireplace. The homeowners have provided some fun board games and books if the television with its D.V.D player and V.C.R are not enough. The dining area has an adjustable table that can seat up to 6 people. The entire living space at Steelhead cottage, much like the rest of the house, has been thoughtfully decorated with antique furniture and family keepsakes, so you really get the sense of a simple home away from home.The brightly painted kitchen provides all of the essentials needed to prepare a family meal, and there are a cute 1950’s style bar table and stool set, a casual place to sit and enjoy coffee or keep the cook comfortable while a meal is prepared. Next to the kitchen neatly kept in a cupboard, there is a stacked washer and dryer, yet another convenience of home.
The downstairs full bathroom, directly across from one of the bedrooms, is freshly painted and features some original tile work. The bedroom has a Queen Bed and more delightful antique furniture. Upstairs there are 2 more bedrooms. One of the bedrooms has a Queen Bed and a full futon couch, and a comfortable chair to sit and read. The other upstairs bedrooms are perfect for children, with its twin bed and a small fold out futon. All of the bedrooms have lovely decorative features, such as an antique dressing table or pretty crocheted bedspreads, which really make the home personable. There is also enough storage space to put your clothes, so you can unpack and make yourself at home. You really get the sense from Steelhead that you are a welcome guest, and that the home itself would love for you to relax, kick off your shoes and enjoy your stay.

Very nicely located property with spacious, well fenced yarn. Was great to be able to walk to many places in Kings Beach. We walked to restaurants, the beach, even the grocery store. The back yard was great for a visiting pup. The family room is spacious. Front and back decks. The bungalow itself is Craftsmen style. Only one full bath (shower) and one half bath. Small kitchen. Older appliances and plumbing but overall did great. Although there are 3 bedrooms and extra beds, bathroom and kitchen space will probably get tight quickly with too many guests. We only had 4 adults and a dog and did fine.
Charming, fully adequate cabin within walking distance to the lake, shops, etc. The kitchen and bathroom could do with an update and are a little tight, but the location and roomy living room far makes up. Fenced yard is worry free for dogs or kids. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat!
great location huge backyard, only 1 shower but fun place to be. Recommended for a night or two stay
This house is the perfect location for walking to the beach and restaurants, and is in close driving proximity to numerous hiking trails. Our family of three plus our two small dogs had a nice holiday weekend there. We love the fenced in backyard for the dogs and the interior was quite comfy.
This place is what you would expect for a 3 bedroom Tahoe Cabin. Good location in Kings Beach, Cabin Vibes w/ fireplace and provided firewood. Large fenced in backyard which was perfect for our 2 dogs to run around and have a great time.
Cozy and comfortable cabin walking distance to kings beach. Dog friendly with fenced in backyard. Plenty of books, games, and classic movies. Will stay again.
“Steelhead home was amazing! It is a cute little home in a quiet neighborhood only 3 short blocks from Kings Beach and all the local stores you could need. We truly enjoyed our stay! The home is beautiful inside and out and perfect for small or large groups. There was plenty of parking available. It has a cute little front yard and wooden patio. You walk in to the dining area and see a huge wrap around couch, and a loveseat that pulls into a bed. The living area had a fireplace (summer visit so we didn't use). A full kitchen stocked with all the dishes you could need and cleaning supplies if staying long. The downstairs bathroom had to entry doors and the only shower (super tiny), but well stocked. The downstairs had one bedroom with a queen bed (super comfy) , closet, dressers, fan, seating area. Upstairs had a small bathroom and two bedrooms. One room had a queen bed, futon that pulls into a full bed, a recliner, dressers, fan and tv. The second bedroom had a twin bed, a futon that pulls into a full bed, tv, fan and dressers. The stairs is able to be gated off at the top for those who have children. And the backyard.... my favorite area of the entire home! The backyard was huge! Great wooden porch with plenty of chairs, horseshoe pit, wooden swing, gazebo with table and chairs under it, a nice walkway to the gazebo, there were kids sand toys, a child's picnic table and bench. It was fenced in and beyond perfect for my two dogs to play all over the place. I absolutely adored this home and would certainly stay again and again. Plenty of places to sleep for a large family, a cute and cozy for just a couple to enjoy. I cannot wait to book my future trip back to North Beach Lake Tahoe and stay in this precious gem!”
Perfect location close to the beach. Great value for price. Definitely an older place, but perfect for what we needed.
“Great location and very spacious back yard. Would recommend to anyone, especially if you're bringing a dog!”
“Great location!! 5 minutes from heart of King Beach.”
“Amazing cabin in an amazing location. We had an outstanding Labor Day weekend and would recommend this cabin to anyone from a couple to a large family.”
“Had a wonderful time and would book again!”
We loved the great location, large backyard for children and dogs, comfortable cabin.
