Cedar Crest - Chickadee Cottage 2

Cozy Cottage Near Ski Resort and Beach, Ideal for Couples

Nestled on forested grounds a one-minute drive from Homestead Mountain Resort and 10 minutes from Olympic Valley, Chickadee Cottage offers a cozy, romantic escape in the heart of Tahoe’s scenic West Shore.

Part of Cedar Crest Cottages, a historic vacation retreat dating to the 1930s, the newly renovated cottage features stylish decor, modern amenities and a tranquil mountain ambience. Located on the ground level of a two-story cottage, Chickadee welcomes guests to an open-concept living area with heated stone floors, wood-paneled walls and high ceilings.

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

After a day on the lake or mountain, relax on the chic leather sofa with a glass of wine, add ambient music from the smart soundbar, or watch a movie on the large-screen TV. Between cable, a blu-ray player and streaming capabilities, you’ll have a near-endless library of options.

A writer’s desk with storage sits between the living area and gourmet kitchen, inviting longer stays for guests looking for a relaxing place to work remotely.

In the gourmet kitchen, state-of-the art appliances by Bosch, GE, and Liebherr may inspire a new cooking hobby, while a four-seat dining area offers ample space for intimate dinners or entertaining.

Across the hall, a private bedroom comfortably sleeps up to two guests with a king -sized bed which can be converted to two extra-long twins upon request. Tastefully styled in soft tones with stone floors and plush bedding, the bedroom features a luxurious en-suite bathroom with a tub shower. The cottage also has a separate guest powder room.

A washer and dryer, ironing board and complimentary laundry pods add convenience, particularly for longer stays.

As a guest of Cedar Creek Cottages, you’ll enjoy access to the community BBQ grill and oversized fire pit with filtered lake views, including glimpses of the mountains. 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 Olympic Valley. The restaurants, shops and entertainment of Tahoe City is just 10 minutes away.

However you choose to explore Tahoe’s lively West Shore, Chickadee Cottage offers a cozy, romantic retreat that feels just like home.

We rented the Chickadee Cabin for my son’s wedding. The cabin was very clean and stylish! The bedding was high quality and extremely comfortable. The cabin was in a good location central to the wedding venue and restaurants! We really enjoyed out stay!

The cottage was so cute and well thought out. Everything was clean and tidy. It was nice to have access to a full kitchen. The welcome guide was very detailed and helpful. The outdoor fire pit was amazing.

Great place, well furnished and lay out is excellent. It was a little warm at night despite the fan on, wish we had AC. The TV in the bedroom could be upgraded with better selection, other than that we loved it

The accommodations are superior and the provisions make it easy to settle in. Location is lovely with easy access to good restaurants and food shopping. Beach access across the road and out the front door to walk by the lake in the morning.

The layout is nice but it’s too close to the noisy highway. There was a lot of traffic noise. No AC or adequate fan for the unseasonably hot summer weather.

Cedar Crest Cottages are beautiful, clean and in a great location. They are also quite affordable compared to other rentals in the area that have spiked due to Corona virus/high demand. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

The cottage was in a great location, cozy, well equipped and perfect for a getaway. Well maintained and accessible. Beautiful landscaping and it was noticed that the owners have left a personal touch in and around the cottages and property. We'll be back.

Cedar crest was awesome! The Room was beautiful and clean. I had plans to purpose to my girl friend while in Tahoe and Nora at the cottages was so helpful and accommodating. I asked if they could help with getting a bottle of champagne in our room for when we returned from our hike. Not only did they find the exact bottle I requested but there was also a beautiful bouquet of flowers waiting for us. We will definitely be staying here again in the future

The onsite manager Mallory was great! She was a pleasure to deal with, professional and made the stay (at social distance) all that much better One negative comment: the floors in the unit we stayed in have seen better days. They look like they're difficult to clean and are badly stained
