In Chamberlands on the west shore of Tahoe, the name of the cabin, Rustic 'Sol', captures its essence. Modernised and comfortable, the cabin retains its rustic Tahoe charm and soul. And atop a rise and south facing, it basks in glorious 'sol' (sun).
The cabin is ideal for families with children and can sleep up to 8. It is not recommended for 8 adults due to the configuration of the beds.
The 2 storey cabin has been updated and appointed with a thoughtful combination of antique and modern furnishings to provide a comfortable stay while maintaining the rustic character. Some qualities include:
- Gas fireplace/stove for ambience and to protect the air quality in the Lake Tahoe basin.
- Triple pane windows for a draught free and warm stay.
- Central heating to ensure that every room, including the bathrooms, is comfortable.
- 46in LED Smart TV with access to internet apps such as YouTube, Pandora, Netflix; HD free to air TV stations; and a large library of movies and TV series.
- A chef's kitchen with granite counter tops
- New king and twin mattresses, bedding, and down comforters for a good night's sleep
- High speed internet and wifi to stay connected.
- Access to Chamberlands private beach (beach ONLY, no pool or tennis access).
The land to the north slopes gently down over conservancy and forest service lots providing privacy, forest views, and excellent tobogganing opportunities.
The driveway is narrow and curves uphill to the house. In winter, 4WD/AWD or 2WD with snow chains is recommended.

We are a family of four living in Australia, but with Californian roots.
How many ways do we love the mountains?
We have hiked, backpacked, snowboarded, skied, camped, and soaked in hot tubs throughout the Sierra Nevada mountains.
We completed the John Muir Trail.
We got engaged at the top of Mt Whitney.
We named our daughter Sierra.
And now in 2014, we have Rustic 'Sol' to continue to build and sustain mountain stories and memories. We hope you enjoy the cabin and mountain air as much as we do.
