Tour this 1929 Lake Tahoe cabin, an exquisite 475-square-foot trip back in time

In seeking a log cabin, many of us have a mental image of the type of place that harkens back to a simpler time. This historic "Old Tahoe" cabin in Zephyr Cove, Nev. was built in 1929, so it offers up plenty of authentic charm within its walls. And, at only 475 square feet, it retains its coziness without feeling cramped inside.
According to the listing on Sotheby's International Realty,  this cabin is tucked away in a pine forest and includes access to a private sandy beach on Lake Tahoe. As if the surroundings weren't enough to capture your attention, the cabin — dubbed the "Good Medicine House" — itself is a marvel in well-preserved rustic living. Of course, it's been upgraded to contain modern plumbing and electric wiring.

The great room's defining features are the vaulted ceilings and the natural stone fireplace. You'll also notice that the wall behind the fireplace features logs all the way up, rather than switching to paneling midway like other cabins.
The impact of a high ceiling is amazing when it comes to maximizing space.
Here is the kitchen, outfitted with sleek modern appliances. 
That bathroom sink is stunning, and you can see the shower through the mirror's reflection.
The sleeping loft is beyond cozy and allows you to get a close-up look of those rustic ceiling beams. Not a bad way to start and end every day.
This cabin brings lots of disparate elements together seamlessly — the beach and the forest, the old and the new, and  the rugged and the refined.
