We love skiing, hiking, fishing, back packing, & swimming .

In the summer of 1981, our entire family started to build our Kirkwood home which was our dream home and a new family project. We completed it in the Fall of 1983.

The Owner purchased this house in 1983

We started skiing Kirkwood, by chance, in the Christmas/New Year’s period of 1971. Heavenly Valley was our destination, but there was too much rock exposure. We decided to try Kirkwood which advertised 2 ft of new snow and 4 open chair lifts (a new ski resort). Although my parents home was at So Lake Tahoe, we decided to drive 30 miles each day for the next 4 days to enjoy the new ski runs @ Kirkwood and its fabulous snow.

Traveling to and from So Lake Tahoe, thru the Sierra’s mountain peaks, we were so impressed by the similarity to the Rocky Mountain terrain. Soon after, we spent more days skiing at Kirkwood and purchased a building lot in Jan 1971

Kirkwood Ski Resort is a major part of scenic Highway 88 passing thru the Sierra Mountains with its ambient and environmental heavy wooded areas, along with its intermediate lakes such as, Silver Lake, Caples Lake, Red Lake, Bear River Lake Resort. Travelers are kept alert by the abruptness & dramatic changes of natures lava & granite rock formations which become quite dominant the higher the elevation gets. Grassy meadows, wild flowers, and Aspen trees add never ending contrast & color.

This area is a hikers/packers paradise, The opportunity for fishing and boating are available. Wild life such as deer, coyotes, squirrel, chipmunks & birds, are in abundance.

Weather varies in winter from extreme cold & high winds to wonderful snow conditions.

Summer has beautiful weather with mild to warm temperatures. There are brilliant reflections of sunsets on the Redcliffs. The night skies of the Kirkwood area are outstanding. The elevation of 8000’ allows for massive formations of stars and an extremely bright full moon. Wonderful for star gazers.

Very Nice Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5
We had a good experience renting this house for a group of 12. There are some curious design features. For instance, from the stairs, you can look into one of the bedrooms through a window-like opening. On the other hand, there are tons of beds and the kitchen works really well for a large group (and it is well-equipped). The living room is also very large and there are lots of games to keep you busy when you aren't skiing. We thought it was a great place to stay with family or others who you know well.

Heaven Can Wait

  • 5 of 5
Any family that would be gazing out the picture windows at the Red Cliffs, would also realize how easy access it would be to take their dog for a walk in the meadow below the cliffs, only to summers delight would be superseded by winters access to the nearby ski slopes.
This is truly a delightful all season vacation location & home.
We plan to return again soon.
