The living room has an automatically fed pellet stove for a cozy fire.
The middle floor - mountain living with nature! The entry is to the middle floor - the main living area with a kitchen featuring granite counters and all the amenities for preparing gourmet meals. The adjacent great room has a hardwood floor and a dining area that can seat eight, a lovely stone hearth with a pellet wood stove, a living area with a huge sectional couch and home theater featuring a 55 inch Visio LCD High Definition TV, Stereo with Denon surround sound speaker system with subwoofer, Playstation 3 gaming system (with Move controllers and lots of games) and blue ray DVD player. There is a half bath on this floor and access to the garage. The interior was recently painted and redocorated with a 'Tahoe Rustic Lodge' theme that is really very charming. There is a massive wraparound deck for dining al fresco, lounging, sunbathing, stargazing, and enjoying the beautiful views. The deck has a picnic table and patio furniture in summer, and a Weber propane grill. There are filtered views of Lake Tahoe from the great room and deck.
The bottom floor features two bedrooms, one with a California King bed, 30 inch TV for watching DVD and VHS movies (not DirectTV) and its own private deck with newly added hot tub and a peek of Lake Tahoe, the other was my daughter's room and it a full size bunk bed with twin bed above it, also another twin bed and another slide out trundle twin bed beneath. There are some kids books and toys too, but this room is also fine for adults of course. There is a full bathroom on this floor and a separate laundry room with washer and dryer, ironing board, etc.
The bottom floor has a huge (approximately 20' x 20') extra sleeping room/gym/office/home theater with L shaped desk, high speed internet access, wireless router for WIFI, lazer printer/copier/scanner, gym quality treadmill, recumbent lifecycle, convertable hide a bed couch and love seat, stereo, 50 inch Samsung DLP High Definition TV with DVD/VCR and DirectTV service. I also have a queen size air bed for this room. Please note that this room does not have a dresser or closet. This room has a Terminator 2 Judgment Day Pinball machine, but it seems to be out of service as much as it works, so if it works when you visit, please consider it a bonus amenity in an already amazing house!
The top floor master suite has amazing views of Lake Tahoe! The huge master suite occupies the entire third floor and is very private, with a huge bedroom with queen bed, private deck, step down to a side room formerly used for a babies area or work area, full bathroom with jetted jacuzzi tub, separate his and hers vanity, and walk in closet. On one of the two dressers I have a Klipsch portable stereo unit for MP3 players such as Ipods and smartphones. The best views of Lake Tahoe can be enjoyed from the entry of this room from the top of the stairs since it sits above most of the treetops.
This was once my home, I still visit often, and I want my guests to feel at home - which means that you'll find a lot more than the usual vacation rental basic supplies. Feel free to use whatever condiments, spices, and sundries that are here. Please also be aware that you'll also find a few of my clothes in some of the closets and drawers so I don't have to pack a suitcase when I visit. There are a couple of adult size one piece snow play suits in the Master closets that you may use. There is plenty of room for your clothes and personal items, most of it I've set aside for my guests.
No smoking indoors. If you smoke, kindly do it on one of the 3 outdoor decks.
This is a gorgeous house in an idyllic natural setting at the #1 destination in the USA and you will make wonderful and lasting memories here!
More world class ski resorts are clustered around Lake Tahoe than anywhere in the world.
If you ski or snowboard - be sure to visit Diamond Peak in Incline Village - only 3.5 miles from this house. It offers the best views of Lake Tahoe from any ski resort and has a high speed quad chair that whisks you to the top in minutes. The daily lift tickets are also $43 less than you'll pay at Heavenly Valley. See my facebook business page for 'tahoelodgingonline' for spectacular photos - please 'Like' us. Also see the Diamond Peak ski resort website - transferable mini passes are available that let you ski for as little as $38 a day!
Mount Rose Ski Tahoe is 10 minutes away on the way to Reno and is a favorite of Reno residents who don't know that Diamond Peak is a better resort. :) Northstar Resort is about a 20-30 minute drive toward Truckee and in addition to great skiing they offer Ice Skating and lots of nice restaurants in their village including Micuni sushi and the Chocolate Bar. Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley, site of the winter Olympic Games are 45-50 minutes away.
Incline Village is home to some of the wealthiest people in the world, and no wonder. It is an pristine natural alpine paradise located on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe, the most beautiful place in the world. The elevation at Lake Tahoe is about 6200 feet, this house is at about 7000 feet, and the surrounding mountain peaks exceed 10,000 feet, which makes for abundant snow, skiing and all winter sports in winter, and mild temperatures averaging in the low eighties in summer.
RENO (AP) — Lake Tahoe ranks first in the nation among choice vacation destinations newly ranked by the major travel website, TripAdvisor. The independent worldwide travel source put Lake Tahoe atop the list of its first Choice Destinations Awards, based on the opinions of millions of travelers.
Lake Tahoe is the largest alpine lake in North American and is approximately 22 miles long and 10 miles wide and is over a thousand feet deep. It contains more than 30 trillion gallons of water - enough fresh, crystal clear water to cover the state of California to shin depth. On June 12, 2011 I drove from Reno and saw people sledding in the snow that lingers just off the Mount Rose Highway and the same afternoon I swam in Lake Tahoe and the pool at Burnt Cedar Beach, one of Incline Village's private beach facilities. See my facebook page tahoelodgingonline for photos of the private beaches and amenities you'll get to enjoy as my guests.
