Testamonial: My husband and I spent our honeymoon here at the Painter Family Home and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect place. Close enough to everything South Shore has to offer and private enough for newlyweds. The views are spectacular and the sound of the water lapping on the private beach lulled us to sleep every night. The restaurant at Richardson’s Camp Marina was wonderful, we received the utmost in attention and service and the food was divine. We enjoyed ourselves so much, we will be coming back on our anniversary next year. Rick & Tracy April 2012

Summer 2010

Another Stunning Summer
We are grateful for another beautiful summer and for all the renters who have enjoyed the cabin and beach!
The Griffith's are new renters to us this summer in August and this is what Larry Griffith had to say about his stay:

"Thomas,
We had a wonderful time. The beach, the lake
and the weather were great. We did have a hale storm the second afternoon
with marble size balls. It was so heavy that the area looked like a winter
scene. My grand children played with the neighboring kids continuously
including Norma's grand children. My wife and I biked, hiked and kayaked.
We hope to do it again next year.
Larry"

Let us know what dates you are interested in for summer 2011 and let's get your name on the books as we expect the weeks to fill up quickly!
Coming soon, a calendar on our VRBO and soon we will be accepting credit cards to simplify the renting process.

As always, we would love your comments to ad to our blog. Just send them and we will post!

Don't forget the shoulder seasons at Tahoe are some of the most beautiful times at Tahoe and the ski season is just around the corner!

Best
The Painter Family

Another Beautiful Week!



I spent a week at the Cabin form 7/25 from 8/1 and despite having been there for the same week every year for more than I care to share it continues to be one of the most spectacular vacations I have ever done. The weather in the 80's all week, add a couple of thunder and lightening storms finished off by hail storms and you have the perfect reason to get sun and great naps....

Here are a couple of pics from the week.....

Don't miss next summer or this year's Indian summer!
Get your reservations done!

Peace
Thomas

Cabin Description and History

Our Grandfather, Arthur Wilbur Stormes, was an avid fisher of rivers and lakes all over the west. In 1944, he and my Grandmother, Gami, bought this lakefront lot from the Jameson's after spending several years visiting Camp Richardson.
His vision was a lake cabin which would be used year round by his three daughters and their families. Dorothy, Patricia and Polly Stormes all spent there teenage years at the property. Arthur died in 1961 before he could build the main house, but Gami carried out his vision and built the house as they had planned. It was built as two units under one roof with a retractable divider separating the Big Side from the Small side. Two kitchens, and two fireplaces provided refuge for one family to escape another. Eventually, the wall was made permanent and we rent the both sides.
The Small Side has two bedrooms, one has a queen bed and the other three single beds sleeping a total of 5. There is one bathroom with only a shower, a kitchen, fireplace and living area.
The Big Side has 4 bedrooms, three with queen beds and the other with three bunk beds providing 6 singles sleeping a total of 12. There are two bathrooms, dining room, kitchen, living area, fireplace, washer and dryer.
The living areas face the deck and lake. The deck is large and is shared when both sides are rented. When the water is low, we have a nice big beach which can be reached from a ramp off the deck. At high water, you have to use the public beach at Camp Richardson if you desire sand!

For rental information and available dates please contact me at Tahoebeachfrontcabin@gmail.com or 415-261-3724
