A sliding door provides a view and also access out onto the deck with its own comfortable patio furniture. There's also a gas grill for evenings when you want to have an outdoor barbecue and watch the sun go down. Feel free to use the picnic table as well!
For indoor meals with style, the dining room is the place to be. It's full of hunting lodge chic, with an ornate whitewashed dining room table and sideboard, antler chandelier, and timber post accents. The ideal spot for a long and engaging meal, you'll want to sit around the table, finish the last of the wine, and linger over conversation long into the evening.

For hikers, numerous trails await. Ranging in difficulty from Lake Tahoe's tallest peak at Mount Tallac Trail, to the easy 2 mile Dolder Nature Trail near the lake shore that includes a picturesque lighthouse and meanders through the Edwin L. Z'berg Natural Preserve. Power Line Trail is just a few steps away from this lovely home. In the summer, you can even hike to to the top of Heavenly Mountain Resort.
