WONDERFUL ALPINE MEADOWS RENTAL-
Our newly remodeled condo is located at the Alpine Meadows Ski area, at the very end of the road and next to the Stanford Chalet. Cozy and comfortable and feels very spacious with open beam rooms. This 3 bedroom, 3-bathroom unit with a loft sleeps a group, without using the living room! Queen bed in master bedroom, 2 double beds (in bunk formation) in bedroom with sleeping loft above (ideal for kids), and twin beds in 3rd bedroom, which can be made into a king sized bed and separate bathroom. There is also a futon in the huge master bedroom, which can sleep an additional 2. All 3 bathrooms are brand new with beautiful tile showers, cabinets and floors, and a washer and dryer. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could need (we have had most holiday dinners there for the past 10 years). The living / dining room is small, but cozy with a wood stove and we have a flat screen TV and DVD player and extensive DVD library.
Plus, the location could not be better for an outdoor loving family, 2 families or group of friends. We chose it due to ease of adults trading off, running home for a hot lunch or any member of the family wanting to leave early and walk home. Zip over to the ski area and back by car, free shuttle or walk. During holiday periods you get to skip the slow crawl up and down Alpine Meadows Rd, and when the road is closed for avalanche control, you'll be skiing. This really is our mountain home, so there are games, puzzles and all the coziness you could want. All in all, it is very comfortable and suitable for groups with or without children. Children's videos and TV are in the loft!
When the snow melts, it is a very peaceful and beautiful home base for your mountain stay. Surrounded by trees and mountains, the bird watching is amazing, wildflowers abound and the hiking-mountain biking trails start literally right out our door. The stables are just down the road, and the famous Truckee River rafting spot is just down Alpine Meadows Rd. The extensive bike trail can also be picked up here.
After a day of summer fun, return to our comfortable abode to relax, barbecue, watch movies on our surround-sound DVD player, check your mail with our free internet. Guaranteed to be comfortable and have everything you need!
The 6 members of the Sigourney family have had 10 years of winter and summer fun in Tahoe. We live in Carmel, CA which is a 5 hour drive to Tahoe. We love both places so much that we happily make the trip back and forth. Both the ocean and mountains offer endless opportunities for outdoor adventure and creating family memories that will last forever.
We have skied in the winter and camped in the mountains since our children were very young. After years of renting condos in this location, our love for this particular spot made it an easy decision to buy our own. Located at the very end of Alpine Meadows Rd, it is as close to the mountains for skiing, hiking, biking and nature that you can get. It is so peaceful all year round, but affords such easy access to all that Tahoe has to offer (5 minutes to the Truckee River, 15 minutes into Tahoe City and Lake Tahoe and Squaw Valley, 25 minutes to Truckee and Donner Lake).
WINTER: Located at the very end of Alpine Meadows Rd, we're first in line on powder days, especially when the road is closed to the rest of the world for avalanche control. Easily close enough to walk to the slopes, run home for lunch or switch off to take care of kids. Avoids all the hassle of driving to ski. Get up...ski....go home and relax. SUMMER: As close to the mountains and forests as possible yet minutes from Truckee River rafting, the bike path into Tahoe City or Squaw Valley, and Lake Tahoe or Donner Lake. The best of both worlds. We love early morning bird watching and lunch next to Bear Creek. The wildflowers are amazing and it is so, so quiet.
Summer: hiking and biking right out the door. End of road and very peaceful
Winter: snowshoeing on forest trails out our door, great sledding hill, 1/4 mile from our door to main lodge. Nice option to driving. Also an Alpine Meadows shuttle stops nearby.
