Tahoe Paradise House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)
Family-friendly, comfortable house located in the beautiful high-Sierra forests. Set on a quiet street and surrounded by pine, fir and cedar trees, our house is a mountain haven, far enough from the congestion of down-town South Lake Tahoe but close enough to beaches, swimming, skiing, dining and shopping to be convenient.
The house itself is spacious. Downstairs is a great room, with dining room and fireplace to one side and living room and wood-burning stove to the other. Sit at the counter in the dining area and visit with the cook. Also on this floor are a bedroom with a queen-sized bed, a full bathroom and a laundry room. Upstairs is a large bedroom with a queen-sized bed, a TV/VCR and room for a portable crib. The dormitory room has three twin beds, and the 'nook', a small room under the eaves, has two twin beds. Throughout the house the walls are paneled in knotty pine, giving each room a warm glow and mountain cabin feeling.
In the front of the house is a low platform deck that looks across the street at national forest; in the back is a railed deck with table, chairs and umbrella. Sit at either and listen to the wind move through the pines, or watch the ground squirrels dart and scamper.
The area around our house has abundant opportunities for hiking. Trails nearby lead up to the ridge that is visible from Highway 50, and to Mt. Freel (the highest peak in the Tahoe basin), beyond. A short drive will take you to trails leading into the upper Truckee basin and Desolation Wilderness. A little longer drive will pass through the stunning Hope Valley to more great hiking around Carson Pass. Our house binder has maps and more detailed descriptions of some of these hikes.
We offer a small library of paperback books, including mystery, romance, natural history, spy/thriller and some children's books.
