Great spot to stay on Lake Tahoe: Easy drive to Tahoe City, with good restaurants,drug store, post office, groceries, bike rentals and a riverside bike trail, raft trips, kayak rentals, and a fascinating small museum. Easy walk to a small grocery. Half a block from the biking/hiking path on this side of the lake. Close to a park with tennis courts. Easy drive to 3 (!) state parks, with swimming beaches, hiking trails, good bird-watching, and more kayaks; or a 20 mile drive to Donner State Park, also a gorgeous spot to spend the day. Really well-furnished house complete with piano. 3 bedrooms with comfortable beds + pull out couch + air bed; lots of extra sheets, towels, bath towels, washer and dryer, detergent and soap and shampoo all supplied. Completely equipped kitchen. Great deck, comfortable chairs, with more good birds and star-gazing outside. TV with movies to watch; games and books on shelves. No mosquitoes! I know some tourists come here to ski, but this is a great spot for a summer vacation.
