Lake Tahoe Cabin With Treetop Deck

Built in 1964, this cabin near Lake Tahoe, Calif., is filled with charming, midcentury details that honor its past: saucer-shaped pendant lights, two-toned buffet tables, low-level furniture, etc. And yet, wood walls and floors ensure that the space still complements its rustic setting, while a treetop deck gives the owners a special way to experience it.
