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.

About V & Nancy Altman

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

Why V & Nancy Altman chose Sierra Tract

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

First time in Tahoe; hopefully not our only time!

  • 5 of 5
We booked the trip to Tahoe as a way to accomplish some "family time." Given that we are a family with grown children, it is difficult for all of us to have an opportunity to spend any length of time together. This house is so comfortable, and the view of the meadow / mountains is beautiful. Although we were disappointed that we were unable to see any wildlife in the meadow, we really enjoyed watching for it each morning and afternoon. I especially appreciate that there was no cable; we had a great time playing games and watching a movie together. I can't tell you the last time we did that! The area has so much to offer and the location of the house was perfect for everything we chose to do; close to Heavenly Village area, but far enough away to be out of the traffic. I highly recommend the Lake Tahoe boat tours; Capt Steve is totally awesome! I really hope that we will have the opportunity to visit Tahoe again; I would not hesitate to rent the same property! Everything was just as it said it would be. Tahoe is such a beautiful area!

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, we've not been able to arrange the appearance of the bears, fox and coyotes in the meadow, but the mountain sunrises and sunsets never disappoint!
We have found that having WiFi at the house is better than cable as the world seems to lean more and more towards digital.
Streaming movies and channels is easy, we give our guests access to our network before they arrive.

Cozy Cabin, Amazing View.

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay in the cabin for many reasons. It was cozy and adequately furnished and stocked. It felt like you were in the middle of the pristine forest, but it was in the heart of town. And the view. Oh the view. It was gorgeous, relaxing, and awe-inspiring. When we weren't on the water or on the trail, we felt like we were still enjoying Tahoe because of the gorgeous view. The view was enjoyed from inside because of the windows and from the outside on the deck.

A few additional comments.
- The cabin was bigger than we expected. There was an additional small living area that wasn't shown in the pictures. Four adults stayed and hung out comfortably.
- If you are expecting the most updated luxury cabin, this is not for you. Don't get me wrong, everything is adequate, cozy and well maintained in the cabin, but rent it with reasonable expectations.
- The cabin was a great value. It's amazing to me that some folks would pay more to rent a hotel room than we paid for this cabin!
- The owners were great to work with. Literally hassle free, friendly, and available.

Would definitely stay again!

Owner's Response: The charm of a wooden home built almost 65 years ago provides an abundance of warmth and personality. Big picture windows to the south create direct sunlight and views.
Our home is comfortable and inviting both inside and out.

Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful vacation home. Looking at it from the front, you would never know how it transforms once you step inside and see the view to a beautiful meadow with meandering creek. We were here for a soccer tournament and stayed a couple of days longer, we had a wonderful time just hanging out on the deck, enjoying the view. Sooooo relaxing, and conveniently to everything in South Lake Tahoe. My 10year old loved to go for a swim in the creek. The inside of the house is just right too, with a beautiful big kitchen with everything you need.

week long stay

  • 5 of 5
My family and I highly recommend this very comfortable vacation rental. Feels much bigger than advertised owing to spectacular panoramic view of a grassy meadow backed by mountains and trees. Will always remember early morning coffee and sunsets on the deck. Kids loved climbing over the fallen tree and exploring along the meandering creek. Owners were great and answered any questions that we had willingly and easily.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had a great vacation in this South Lake Tahoe cabin. I am a bit of a clean freak and I appreciate that V and Nancy provided a clean and well maintained place to stay. Our kids, ages 9 and 11, played outside in the creek daily and we never got tired of the gorgeous meadow view. The location was an easy drive to the beaches, hiking trails, and a night out at the casino. My family will definitely stay here again when we return to Tahoe. Thank you V and Nancy for sharing your amazing home.

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!
