MOUNTAIN POSTCARD!COZY 3BR/2BTH WITH MOUNTAIN, MEADOW AND RIVER VIEWS

Sierra Tract House Rental Photos and Description

Warm And Inviting 3BR 2BA W/ Fabulous Views Situated Close To All Amenities

This is a cozy 3 bedroom, 2 bath home that backs up to South Lake Tahoe's most beautiful meadow. The Upper Truckee River splits and runs right through the meadow from two different directions. To top off our Post Card View, the horizon is dominated by a 180 degree view of snow-capped mountains. Our home comfortably accommodates a maximum of 6 guests.

Situated right in town but secluded for privacy you will find direct southern exposure enabling you to enjoy the changing colors of the day. Relax and curl up in the comfort of our cozy sofas to read while enjoying the meadow view or hike straight out from the house to breath in the fresh pine air. Our surrounding trees have numerous breeds of birds jumping and flying with colors and calls.

Our focus is to provide every comfort for your stay. Our home is outfitted with high quality linens, towels as well as comfortable beds and furniture. Adding to the coziness and warmth, the walls and ceilings are finished with aged clear-heart redwood and knotty pine. You will also find a gas fireplace insert without the work of building a fire.

The kitchen adjoins the dining area and offers the same tremendous views while you prepare breakfast or pack a lunch for the days outing. You will find all the cooking utensils, high quality pots and pans as well as paper goods, herbs and spices and condiments you might need.

We also have a teak table, chairs and gas grill at the back deck overlooking the meadow and river facing directly south.

There are numerous restaurants from 5 star to delicious local taquerias for dining in or taking out if you want to spend your time away from the stove. Our back deck provides a place to lounge in the summer months and a short walk out the back gate offers a walk along the river.

In the summer, we are close to numerous beaches, biking and hiking trails as well as several golf courses to choose from. In winter we are less than 10 minutes to Heavenly Ski Resort. For other ski options you will find Sierra-at Tahoe 15 miles up the pass or Kirkwood a beautiful 45 minute drive over Luther Pass and through Hope Valley.

Visiting in the Spring is beautiful as the wildflowers bloom and the trees show off their light green array and Autumn brings with it a myriad of fall color that makes some hiking trails just glow.

We are located just 10 minutes from the California/Nevada state line where you will find a variety of top-notch entertainment options from restaurants to music and comedy shows, casinos and cinemas. Leaving our home in either direction you will find accessible grocery stores and specialty shops to suit your every need.

Our family of four has enjoyed the tradition of our mountain home as a get away for the entire family or a romantic weekend for just the two of us. With our children now grown and the balancing of our schedule demands, we have decided we would like to share the joy that we have had at our cozy mountain home with others. Our house is outfitted as our primary home with all creature comforts. We hope that you enjoy it as much as we have and make it a travel/holiday tradition each year.

V & Nancy Altman purchased this house in 1991

We looked far and wide for months for a unique home for our family. The day we found this home, we opened the front door to reveal the treasure inside of wood walls, beam ceilings, mountain and meadow views and above all, warmth, character and charm.

Our house is conveniently located in town. When closing the front door behind you, you will feel like you are in the forest among the meadows, mountains and streams. We have suited our house with quality furniture to make comfort the top priority for our guests stay.

AWESOME HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
The view from this house is incredible. It's right off Hwy 50 as you turn into South Lake Tahoe but it looks like it is in the middle of the Sierras from the back deck. We saw a coyote in the meadow on one of our days and heard him howling one of the nights. Pretty cool! The house had everything we needed for a week away from home. We can't wait to come back again.
V & Nancy were very responsive from the moment we requested our dates. They checked in with us at the end of the week and made us feel very welcome.
I've rented several places in Tahoe and this is the first place that was managed by the owner and not a property management company. Way more personal. Loved this property and will be back for SURE! Thank you!

GREAT TAHOE VACATION RENTAL!

  • 5 of 5
Great vacation home in S. Lake Tahoe and accommodated us 5 adults perfectly. Everything was even better than the photos! Extremely clean, furnished so nicely and beds very comfy. LOVED the view from the deck and livingroom. Location was great, nice and close to all you need. Would definitely recommend and hope to return ourselves!

THE PERFECT WEEKEND GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My small group of friends and family had a chance to sneak away to Tahoe for a quick trip. We wanted to relax for the weekend before some of us were to start new jobs. There were a number of listings I was considering, but the wonderful reviews about this place caught my attention. I assure you the excellent reviews are warranted. The cabin was extremely clean and comfortable. You walk in and you truly feel like you are at home. I'm a big fan of my own bed and pillow, but I must say the beds here were extremely comfortable. The jewel of the cabin though is definitely the view from the back deck. My group was in South Lake during a time when there was not an abundance of snow on the ground, but it was still a beautiful view. I can only imagine what it must look like during the heart of winter. The cabin is nicely situated next to the highlights of South Lake. Most everything, including Heavenly and the strip, are right down the road. Lastly, the owners were extremely friendly people to interact with. It really makes a difference knowing you are renting from people that are down to earth and that care about the enjoyment of your stay. I will be looking for this cabin again when I make it up to Tahoe next, hopefully during a snowy winter!

Owner's Response: Pray for snow!
In the winter we wish we had a direct line to the snow god in the sky. Still with the lack of weather for the 2013 winter, it is a beautiful south facing view from the "meadow room".

JUST LIKE HOME

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed this place. The location was excellent and the large deck with a view of the meadow was very relaxing after a long day. I really like the open kitchen, it was very clean and we all felt really comfortable here. We will definitely be back in the summer to enjoy.

MOUNTAIN POSTCARD

  • 5 of 5
This place really is something out of a postcard. Three couples were totally comfortable for two nights of heavy weather...the skiing was the best yet this winter! The view from the deck is excellent.

It was perfectly set-up with all the creature comforts and did not have cable...which was awesome! We played cards which is way better.

The inside of the house is very pretty with lots of natural wood, which gives it that cozy cabin feel. Beds were very comfy, and the house was extremely clean. Owners were great to work with.

This will now be our go-to cabin for any future multi-day trips to South Shore.

BEAUTIFUL WILDERNESS RIGHT DOWNTOWN!

  • 5 of 5
We three couples stayed at the delightful house a few minutes drive downtown from South Lake. Once inside, however, you could be deep in the wilderness: the back of the house looks out over an amazing meadow, and we were transfixed in the evenings by all the critter-watching. Beautiful stuff.

Inside, all the rooms were comfy, warm and homely. The kitchen had everything you'd need to enjoy home cooked meals and the fire kept us all cosy. The owners were a delight to deal with: such a bonus.

Will definitely be booking again next time we visit Tahoe.
