J.L. left this review: These cabins are on the Tahoe Stations property, no main gates to go thru and an easy drive to any area on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe. The South Shore areas of interest are all about a 45-60 minute drive along the east or west sides of the lake. The cabins are spacious and clean, the only issue I found with using these cabins is the reservation process, getting the dates you like may prove difficult; we ended up selecting a date that was middle of a non-holiday week just to get in as these cabins are in high demand due to their location.
