This is a recently updated 3 level private mountain home with views of beautiful Lake Tahoe, which is only 2 miles away. I've just added a pool table and more new comfortable beds, as well as a portable crib and portable high chair. 2300 square feet of interior space makes it roomy. This is a freestanding private home in a private cul-de-sac on a forested mountain slope. You are surrounded by nature! There are outdoor decks on all 3 floors. Barbecue on the Weber propane grill and you can dine out on the massive middle floor wraparound deck. I've also added a PRIVATE HOT TUB to the bottom floor deck under the cover of the middle floor deck - the hot tub is awesome when it snows!
The house sleeps 12 and offers tons of fun for the whole family. Shoot some pool in the new and improved game room. The house has Charter HD cable TV service for the two big screen home theaters, and high speed cable internet with WIFI. I have Netflix and Amazon prime services that provide unlimited streaming high definition movies in surround sound to either of the home theaters in the house.
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 plus 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 (10 in a pinch), a lovely stone hearth with a pellet wood stove, a living area with a huge sectional couch and matching overstuffed chair and a 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 that can be used year round. 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 cable) and its own private deck with the private hot tub and a peek of Lake Tahoe, the other 1st floor bedroom was my daughter's room and it a has a new lodgepole Queen bed and new twin over twin bunk bed (added October 2013). 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 also has a huge (approximately 20' x 20') extra sleeping room/office/home theater with a Pool Table, L shaped desk, high speed internet access, wireless router for WIFI, lazer printer/copier/scanner, new Queen size hide a bed couch, stereo, 50 inch Samsung DLP High Definition TV with DVD/VCR and Cable TV service. I have now added a wardrobe/armoire to this room for your clothes.
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 which is now equipped with a gym quality treadmill and recumbent lifecycle exercise bike, 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 suite walk in closet 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 www.diamondpeak.com/tickets_passes/lift_tickets - transferable mini passes are available that let you ski for as little as $38 a day!
Normal day lift tickets for non residents are only $59 per day, peak rates ( December 23, 2013 - January 4, 2014; January 18-19 2014; February 15-23, 2014) are only $69. For residents like me the rates are only $25 normal and $35 peak. Here's a deal - for the first 2 skiers to book a full week in winter I will let you use one my 'punch cards' that provide $165 that you can apply to the difference between the resident and non resident rates - so you can ski for $25 all day!
Also, Costco is selling $100 gift cards for Diamond Peak for only $79.99 - I suggest giving yourself a 20% discount on what's already the best skiing value in Tahoe!
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 1, 2011 one of my guests borrowed my skis because Squaw Valley still had enough snow to open that day. 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.

My name is Trevor and I am a 45 year old father of a 12 year old daughter, Rachel. In April of 2013 I married the woman of my dreams and enlarged my family to 6 with her and 3 stepsons that are 10, 11, and 13. I practiced law in California for 10 years and still hold an inactive membership to the California Bar, but I have made my living as a firefighter for the Reno Fire Department for 10 years, a second career that I love. I am a fitness and health nut and I exercise religiously. The better to drag you out of a burning building with, my dear. I enjoy water and snow skiing, boating, wakeboarding, golf, mountain biking, and have completed an xterrra sprint triatholon and a half marathon. This home has been in my family since 1987.
My parents bought this house in 1987 and it was their second home until I bought it from them in 2007. I lived in the home full time until early 2011 and I still visit often.
Incline Village is on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe, the most beautiful place in the world. I love to hike, roller blade, run, and play golf, all of which are world class here. A very challenging bike ride is from my house to the pass on the Mount Rose Highway on the way to Reno, which is about 9,500 feet elevation. I probably hit 50 m.p.h. on the way back down and enjoyed breaktaking views of Lake Tahoe. A 12 mile round trip hike I did with my wife last summer starts at that pass and goes to the summit of Mount Rose. Amazing hike. The Flume trail is rated one of the top 5 mountain bike rides in the world and ends in Incline Village at the old Ponderosa Ranch, maybe 5 miles from my house. If you don't want to mountain bike, I suggest the challenging hike from Spooner State Park to Marlette Lake, we enjoyed that one last summer also. Pack a lunch.
Lake Tahoe is my favorite place to visit any time of the year. I commuted to work at the Reno firehouses from this home for years but when I first see Lake Tahoe from the Mount Rose Highway it always takes my breath away. A few years ago in early June I drove from Reno and saw people sledding in the snow that lingered 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. At the time I first moved here in 2001, I was an avid golfer with a single digit handicap index. I love Incline Village's golf courses which are Robert Trent Jones designs. When I had my driver working for me, I could hit balls over the netting at the back of the range. See my facebook page www.facebook.com/Tahoelodgingonline for pictures of the courses.
I take a moment each day I spend here to enjoy the gorgeous views of Lake Tahoe from the entry to the master bedroom. I love Incline Village's Championship golf course, nearby snow skiing, boating and wakeboarding, and Incline Village's private beaches. There are more worthwhile outdoor activities do in this area than I'll be able to do in my lifetime. The location is serene and the natural beauty of the surroundings are awe inspiring. I love sitting out on the deck at night stargazing. Thousands of stars are visible due to the elevation and lack of city lights.
I've made it so there's plenty to do if you just want to hang around the house and relax. I'm fired up about the Pool Table added in October 2013! There are 2 big screen HDTVs with Cable TV in HD, Netflix, and Amazon Prime. Sony Playstation 3 and Nintendo Wii are great fun. I also have board games and love to read, so you will find at least a hundred books.
The Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort Casino is only 3 miles away. In fact my parents told me that the lot for this house was won in a high stakes poker game at the Hyatt! You don't have to stay at the Hyatt to play at the Hyatt, and you get a LOT more value and comfort at my house for accommodations.
Lake Tahoe is a year round destination. In winter I enjoy skiing and sledding. The hot tub feels great after playing in the snow. In summer when it may reach 100 degrees F in Reno/Sparks, where I live and work, I can drive up to this house and it will be in the mid eighties. I launch my boat at Incline Village's ski beach and love boating in Lake Tahoe. My favorite beach in the world is Incline Village's Burnt Cedar Beach, which has a lifeguarded swimming area and a lakeside lifeguarded Olympic size pool. Both beaches are closed to the public but you get access as my guest for a small daily fee.
Golf doesn't get more fun that it is at Lake Tahoe. The ball flies goes a club farther and curves less because the air is thinner.
