Lake Tahoe, California

Cedar Crest - Woodpecker Cottage 7

Charming and Cozy Cottage with WiFi; Near Ski Resort

Ideal for a family or small group of friends, this charming two-level cottage sits just above the community fire pit at Cedar Crest Cottages, a historic vacation retreat nestled on forested grounds with filtered lake and mountain views.

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

Newly renovated with tasteful, mountain lodge-inspired decor, Woodpecker Cottage features a convenient layout well-suited for a weekend escape or a season-long working vacation. In the living area, styled in autumn tones with burnt orange accents and rich hardwood floors, a wide desk with storage sits just beneath a large-screen TV, creating a seamless workspace. To unwind after a day on the lake or mountain, relax on the rich leather sectional and enjoy the smart soundbar, or take advantage of cable, a blu-ray player or streaming capabilities. Of course, the tranquil atmosphere may call for a simple glass of wine and conversation.

Downstairs, two uniquely styled bedrooms offer privacy and king- sized beds which can be converted to two extra-long twins upon request. Small children are easily accommodated with a crib or floor futon. Both bedrooms feature plush bedding, twin nightstands, a picture window and wall-mounted TV.

Guests share a newly remodeled bathroom on the lower level with a step-in shower, and a separate powder room on the main level. A private washer and dryer, complete with complimentary laundry pods, adds convenience, especially for longer stays.

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 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 Homewood Mountain Resort, or just 25 minutes to the varied terrain of Olympic Valley.

Whether you’re planning a family vacation or seeking a place to reset and rejuvenate, Woodpecker Cottage offers a peaceful place to call home in the heart of Lake Tahoe’s year-round recreation.

Please be advised that the firepit is seasonal and is not operational during the winter months due to the heavy snowfall.

Beautiful and immaculate cottage in gorgeous surroundings. The management were responsive when I called when questions. The beach access was close and we basically had the whole beach to ourselves. Would definitely stay here again.

I am an organizer/ decorator so this cottage was a dream come true. It was so organized and absolutely immaculate. The black walls and amazing decor made it feel cozy and updated. It felt brand new because of how clean and organized it was. I loved the little boxes of toiletries. We had everything we needed. We loved having a private beach access and enjoyed the fire pit as a family each night. We will see you again next year. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Tastefully decorated interior - kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms. Great for a small family staying for 4-7 days. Especially liked 1 full bathroom bedroom floor and half bath other floor setup.
