For those cottagers who want the best of both worlds—rustic pedigree but with modern amenities—this is the retreat for you. This cabin on the north shore of Lake Tahoe was originally built in 1962 (and has the gorgeous bones to prove it!) but has since been extensively renovated.
The open-concept space has gorgeous hardwood flooring, beautiful kitchen with marble countertops, and stainless steel appliances—and so many skylights throughout the house. Along with retirees and small families, environmentalists are also sure to love this cabin: it comes equipped with a TESLA charger for your electric car and a NEST thermostat, the programmable device that conserves energy. This space is cozy, functional, and totally swoon-worthy.
