Lake Tahoe is a vacation treasure -- both winter and summer. Our chalet is just minutes from Tahoe City, and is located in the Alpine Meadows ski area. Shuttle busses stop at the corner to take you to the ski area or to Squaw Valley if you don't wish to drive.
The chalet has a large kitchen with dishes and silver for 16. There is a dishwasher, microwave, trash compactor, and a full range of small appliances. The utility room has a washer and dryer.
The dining room has a large circular table which seats nine, and a counter which seats four on bar stools. The living room has a brick fireplace with a TV/VCR and a tape/disc player.
The master bedroom downstairs has a queen-size bed and a bath with shower over tub. Upstairs is a queen bedroom, a twin bedroom, and a bunk room with two double bunks which are twin-bed size. The bathroom has two sinks, and the shower room is separate.
On the deck is a wood bin and barbecue.
In the summer there are tables with chairs for dining and lounge chairs for sunning and relaxing.
Alpine Meadows is a family-oriented ski area with runs for all abilities from beginners to expert. There are 12 chair lifts including two hi-speed four and six-person chairs. Interchangeable lift tickets are available for the Big Six ski areas: Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley, Northstar, Heavenly Valley, Kirkwood, and Sierra at Tahoe.
Summer activities include swimming and tennis at the community facility, horseback riding, and bicycling on bike paths to Squaw Valley or along the river to Tahoe City and along the lake to Sunnyside. Sunnyside is a great place to dine on the deck and view all the lake activity.
River Ranch Hotel is at the entrance to Alpine Meadows; there you can watch the river rafters, and dine on the deck or have a nice evening dinner.
There are a number of great golf courses in the area including Squaw Valley, Northstar, Tahoe Donner, Incline, and Ponderosa.
Nearby casinos are at North Shore and South Shore.
