About Jenny Sweetland
My husband, Mark, spent many treasured childhood summers at Lake Tahoe. His grandparents, Ernest and Nellie, purchased lakefront property in Lake Tahoe in 1922 which was a legacy that lasted three generations. The Lake is a sanctuary for Mark - a place to re-charge from his hurried life and reacquaint himself with nature. When the family property was sold in 2007, Mark knew he wanted our children to experience Lake Tahoe in the same way so we acquired this one-of-a-kind home in Zephyr Cove.
Jenny Sweetland purchased this house in 2007
Why Jenny Sweetland chose Skyland
The east shore provides some of the most scenic views of Lake Tahoe. It has warm afternoons and spectacular sunsets. It is close to South Shore casinos offering world class entertainment and food. The home is situated 50 feet from the trailhead to National forest lands where there is hiking and private beaches to discover. In the summer you can hike (less than 1 mile) through the forest to the Zephyr Cove pier where water sports are available to include boating, catamarans, canoes, windsurfing, water skiing, jet skiing, beach volleyball and the famous Dixie paddle boat cruise. There is also indoor and beach dining at Zephyr Cove. In the winter it is a short drive to Heavenly Valley Ski Resort that hosts snow boarding, snow skiing, zip lining (Heavenly Flyer) and a children's play area (Adventure Peak). The Kahle Community Center has a gym, indoor courts, indoor track and outdoor sports field.
What makes this house unique
This home offers a truly unforgettable Lake Tahoe experience. The home and deck extend out to the edge of the water offering a rare outdoor experience. The gas barbeque, dining table, hot tub and firepit provide everything you need for a relaxing day at the Lake without ever leaving home. The Skyland community beach is a wonderful place for young children to play or for adults to share the company of friends and neighbors.
