In the summertime, the open terrain becomes some of the best hiking and biking trails on the North Shore. You can access the trails at the home and go for miles.

In the wintertime… you are in the middle of the North Shore with easy access to the ski resorts. You are 4 miles to the entrance of Northstar which offers a great all-around skiing mountain, along with a new village with ice skating rink, shops and restaurants. Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley are minutes away and there is a short cut which eliminates dealing with traffic in Tahoe City. Diamond Peak and Mt Rose are 20 min away and offers less expensive skiing with specials and family pricing. Cross country skiing and snow shoeing are literally out the back door…and for those adventure enthusiasts, there is a multitude of snowmobiling rentals as close at 2 miles from the house.
This house has the space for a large family gathering, or group of friends. As you walk in the front door, you are greeted with a massive river rock fireplace, high A frame ceilings, pool table, windows looking out to the meadow, and open floor plan. The fireplace is wood and the vocal point of the room and everything faces it. Knotty pine paneling and stain glass accents surrounds the 'Great Room,' giving the space a true mountain feeling and smell. A large sectional and scattered ottomans faces the fireplace and entertainment center with TV, stereo, and DVD player. A slider opens out to the top wrap-around deck with patio furniture and barbecue. Its great to sit out here and breath in the trees. From here you look over the beautiful meadow with tall pine trees and seasonal creek. The smell of the pines is mesmerizing. Below the upper deck, is a separate deck for the hot tub. Because the deck is level to the meadow, tenants have been known to jump out of the tub, make snow angles, then jump back in. The house is also on a gentle slope for sledding and snow play.This is the place on either deck to relax and enjoy the wildlife, and sounds of a forest.
Nicknamed the 'TreeHaus,' your view from all windows is of the towering pine trees and seasonal creek. A path in the meadow behind the house leads to North National Park which has ball fields, a Frisbee golf course, picnic areas, and hiking and biking trails. In the wintertime, bring your cross country ski's or snow shoes. The trails from the house are well used in both the summer and winter months.
This is a true Mountain Lodge with lots of nooks and cranny's to allow your family or friends to spread out comfortably. It is warm, inviting, and set up as a vacation rental.
The open living area has a pool table and a large dining room table, and kitchen. A well appointed kitchen with wrap-around counters, and breakfast bar that seats 5, allows for all to watch the chef cook.

The pool table is in the middle of the room and will allow you to play pool, while watching tv, looking at the fireplace, talking with the chef, or just listening to music.

Ok, we loved your house!!!! It was perfect and had everything we needed. We appreciate how beautiful and clean you keep everything, the women loved all the cute decorations and we felt right at home. It had such a warm welcoming and it felt like a home instead of just somewhere you stay when you’re on vacation. You definitely have a repeat customer.
Lake Tahoe is a magical place to be both summer and winter. Please feel free to call me with any questions.
Love the neighborhood!!
I love where this is on the Lake. You are right in the middle of the North Shore, with easy access to all of Lake Tahoe. The Lake is 3 miles, casinos, 3.5, Northstar 4, Reno 35 minutes, and South Shore is 40 and FUN to go to in the summertime. Skiing is everywhere. I ski at Alpine and Squaw and to drive there from the house, I go the back way and eliminate all the traffic in Tahoe City. I can get there in 20 min's., and is an easy drive.
The restaurants and shops on the lake speak for themselves. But...Northstar is my new hangout! The Village is beautiful!
There is a big ice-skating rink surrounded by bars, tiki torches and outdoor couches with fire pits. Around this are shops and restaurants and then the ski lifts. It reminds be of Vail. In the summertime the ice becomes roller skating with the same ambiance.
You can't beat the neighborhood here. Walking the trails is a twice daily event. There are maintained by the forest service and easy to follow. You can walk to Agate bay, or even Tahoe City if so inclined. Because the area is just up from the Lake, most of the trails have panoramic views of the Lake.
The house is super comfortable and I love walking out the back door and being in the meadow with tall pines. The smell of the forest permeates the house and its quiet, peaceful, and visually soothing.
This house is in the middle of the Northshore and has easy access to all Lake Tahoe has to offer. 1.5 miles from the highway, getting around the Tahoe Basin is effortless. The drive around the Lake is breathtaking and you'll enjoy the different little towns that surround the Lake.
The house is in a quiet pocket of homes just up from the Lake at Kings Beach and on a cul de sac. All the homes here sit on a meadow with tall pine trees, and roads dead end at the hiking trails. Winter and summer they are used and maintained by the forest service. It borders the Tahoe Rim trail which is a destination for some with endless hiking trails you can access from the house. Brockway Summit is well know for its path to Tahoe City, and Watson Lake is worth hiking too. You can walk in the summertime to our neighborhood park, North National Park. The park encompasses approximately 124 acres of predominantly active recreational activities. An 18 par fitness course, ball fields, Frisbee Golf, playground are just a few options. In the wintertime they offer a nice sledding hill for tubing and snow fun. The house also had a small sleddding hill right into the yard when it snows enough for the little ones.
Within 20 min to all the ski resorts on the North Shore, Northstar in the closest and newest village. The village was modeled after Beaver Creek Colorado...cobblestone sidewalks, copper roofs and a multitude of restaurants and shops that line the 'square'. The square is an ice skating rink in the wintertime and roller skating in summer. The bon fire pits and outdoor bars are always there. Its a wonderful setting to hang out at especially at night. Skiing here is family orientated with lots of ski programs for all ages, and a pristine mountain that keeps a good grasp on good snow conditions.
If your staying a week, I highly recommend taking advantage of the other resorts also. You can drive the back way to Alpine and Squaw which eliminates the morning back up in Tahoe City. Both mountains have tons of excellent skiing, and mountain biking in the summertime. MT Rose is where to go for open terrain, Diamond Peak for kids and an easy day skiing. Both are 15 min to the house.
In the summertime, Kings Beach just down the street is a State Park with lifeguard and lake toys to rent. The beach is the highlight with wide sandy beaches, and views you have to experience to appreciate. There are also smaller beaches up and down the strip for reading a book, and dog beaches for your loved ones.
Brockway golf course in Kings Beach is a must for those that just want a good time. One of the top 9 hole courses in California, its known for its yardage and views. In the wintertime it becomes a snowmobiling park.
Tahoe City is 12 miles away and offers another nice city with shops, restaurants and outdoor venues. The Truckee River is our playground for fishing, river rafting, and bike baths to view all. A nice day is renting your bike in Tahoe City and riding to River Ranch. This is a river front restaurant with large outdoor patio at the entrance to Alpine Meadows. Here is where the river tours end and usually where the rafts have issues. You can spend the day here watching the rafters and enjoying their menu and drink.
Between the location , amenities of the house, and your favorite family or friends, you'll have a great home to stay at while getting a true Lake Tahoe experience.
