What are the ski conditions for the day? Look out the expansive front window wall to the KT22 or Squaw Peak view and see for yourself! Come breathe the clean mountain air from our front and back balcony/decks as you relax from your day of skiing or hiking. Ponder the natural beauty surrounding you while sipping your favorite beverage from our Hot Springs Spa.
This warm, enticing family chalet was completely remodeled in 2006. Built in the 1960's, it has lovingly been in the same family since; having one of the best views in the valley. The home comfortably sleeps 9-11 guests in four bedrooms (two with Queen beds, one with two twin beds, one with a twin trundle and another twin) plus a Queen sofa bed in the family room. Three completely remodeled bathrooms feature a spacious light-filled shower, a shower/tub, and another shower.
A secure two-car garage with an eight-foot high automatic door, will accommodate your ski/luggage rack. We have room to store your skis, snowboards or bikes. There is also room for three to four additional cars off street. At the entry level, you will find an entry room with ample coat hanging, boot storage and drying rack. Also on this level is our washer and dryer, access to the Hot Springs spa and deck, a full bath (to quickly warm up after sledding), and a cozy family room with TV/DVD/VCR. (The queen sofa bed is here).
The spectacular view of the Squaw Valley ski resort and The Meadow is available for your viewing pleasure on the main level of the chalet. Here is our great room with cozy living and dining area. A warm crackling fire in the Jotul wood burning stove coaxes you to sink into the soft cushions of the couch, listening to your favorite music, or watching that latest movie.
Alternatively, you can enjoy the birds while reading a book out on the deck with it's gorgeous view. We have a fully loaded kitchen, complete with all cooking utensils, gas cook top, microwave and dishwasher. Two bedrooms, each with a queen bed, are at the back of this level, with sliders opening onto a deck overlooking a peaceful pine-forested mountainside, which is also a perfect sledding hill! A full bath with sky lit walk-in shower completes this level.
The upper level of the chalet has two bedrooms; one with two twin beds, the other with a twin-trundle bed and another twin bed. Each bedroom is overlooking the pine mountain and has it’s own closet. A full bath with shower is also on this level. The large landing has a desk area with high-speed internet access.
We are a non-smoking home. We require a $500 refundable security deposit. Please contact us if you are interested in a ski-lease or monthly rental.

I had a wonderful time staying at the Squaw Valley cabin to celebrate my 29th birthday. I wanted to prioritize having a spot that comfortably slept 10+ people in beds. I have had my fair share of Tahoe couch sleeping and resulting neck soreness from a too-short couch or grogginess from waking every time someone gets up to use the bathroom. All of my 11 friends had a single or spot on a double bed with privacy of a door. One chose to sleep on the deck under the stars and said it was really pleasant and quiet. The kitchen is fully loaded with knives and serving plates for huge family dinners. The unit downstairs would have been nice for people with little kids since there is a separate bathroom. I really appreciated the open layout to talk and joke while prepping breakfast/dinner.
On Saturday, we hiked from the Cabin doors along the bike path, through the village (stopping for coffee), and up Shirley Canyon trail to Olympic High Camp. We took a break at the falls and took a dip in Shirley Lake which hit the spot on a hot day. Up at the top, we relaxed in the hot tub with drinks from the bar. It was a full day but so worth the work! Bring cash and ID for the bar and pool use. We rode the tram down for free :) Since the cabin has a lock box, it was easy to plan for people who wanted to head back early to start dinner. We finished the night with burgers BBQ'ed on the deck and games in open living room. What a perfect day!
We all had another wonderful stay. This is out second year and we couldn't be more pleased with the Chalet, it is truly beautiful and a perfect location to the Valley. We will be back again!!!
Had an excellent time at this cabin, was clean, great location, wonderful amenities and very accommodating owner. Was here in the late summer and was treated to great views, cozy atmosphere and a real nice place to stay. we would definitely rent this unit again!
