Have you ever wanted to rent a large vacation home and wondered why you did not get a reduced rate if just two of you were coming? At Alta Vista we acknowledge that the 'wear and tear' on our home is dramatically reduced when your party is small, and we have structured our pricing accordingly! The 'Alta Vista' Chalet is ideal for winter and summer vacationing! At 7300 feet elevation, Alta Vista has stunning panoramic vistas. To the west, you overlook the Tahoe-Donner downhill ski area (ski-in, ski-out possible). From north to south, you look above the Tahoe Donner resort into endless High Sierra mountain ranges. The Alta Vista Chalet was built in 1998 and subsequently substantially expanded. Beautiful vistas are maximized from every room and large wraparound decks on three levels. It features 4 bedrooms (two of them master bedrooms), 3 full bathrooms and 1 guest bathroom, and has approx. 2100-square-foot living area. You simply feel at the top of the world!

We had been looking for a place in the mountains that would work well both for summer and winter vacations. Views and privacy we definitely on the wish list. At the end of a showing tour, our agent remarked something like " ... and there is one more place that came on the market just today, I haven't seen it myself." Well, already when we drove into the driveway, we both knew instantly that this was the one! The views were out of this world! When we stood in the living room, we were literally taken away by the views. We had our offer in within the hour ...
We then embarked on a fairly extensive remodeling activity, converting conventional railings to tempered glass railings that would not break up those stunning views, adding another wrap-around deck on the garage level and enlarging the small windows of the two main floor bedrooms to sliding glass doors, leading to the new deck and opening up to the same stunning views from each bed, and converting the dead space underneath to another master bedroom suite, with its own view deck and built-in hot tub.
