Located on a quiet, flat and sunny street very close to downtown Tahoe City. Great street for the kids to play and close enough for a walk to town in less than ten minutes. Tahoe House coffee and pastries and Blue Moon Natural foods are located just around the corner (or shorter if you cut through the woods). Also, the trailhead for Page Meadows is a quarter mile from the front door for awesome hiking and mountain biking. Walk to the river for summertime fun. Great, easy winter access as well.

We have lived in Tahoe since 1989 and love it here. We both came to ski and live in these beautiful mountains and never want to leave. Eric has been a professional skier since 1989 and still works as ski guide and coach in the winter. Laura teaches school in Truckee. We know what it takes to make a great home here in the mountains and this house reflects our commitment to a comfortable life and a warm, happy, and functional retreat for our family and our guests.
We chose this street and house because it is sunny, warm, flat with easy access, no traffic (on a horse-shoe road) and it is located close to town, skiing and wilderness trailheads. We are a short walk to downtown Tahoe City, and close drive of only twelve minutes to Squaw Valley. The house also offers a beautiful, large and private backyard bordering greenbelt forest.
You can enjoy plenty of warmth and comfort and functional use of space when staying at our house. We have made many modifications including large, custom-cabinets and stone floor on the entry way to handle the demands of kids and parents with active lifestyles. We have lots room to dry and store everyone's gear. The living and dining rooms seat the whole family with the gas fireplace to provide warmth and ambiance. Everyone will be toasty on cold nights with down-filled covers on all the beds. And the full-featured, private hot-tub spa will be a welcome warm-up after a day in the mountains.
The Granlibakken trail head is just around the corner from the house, offering a trail well suited for hiking, trail running, and mountain biking. It accesses the Truckee River, Paige Meadows and, further along, ties into Alpine Meadows and the Tahoe Rim Trail. Generally, it is a good trail with moderately steep sections.
