TAHOE'S AWESOME MAJESTY: Seasonal flower beds and expansive lawn greet you when you arrive at this meticulously maintained home. Entering the front door you are met with light flowing through a beautiful glass-block wall. A gentle set of stairs leads up to the great room, boasting soaring ceilings and light shining in through the skylights and massive view windows. You will be drawn to the generous deck overlooking the waterway, with a backdrop of majestic mountain peaks. Mt. Tallac, with its trademark cross of snow will pull your vision as you take in the grandeur of the glacier-made Tahoe basin.
You may decide to sit awhile in the golden teak chairs as you breathe in the freshness of the mountain air: or you may not be able to resist exploring the rest of the property. Re-entering the great room you will notice the huge round solid maple dining table with seating for 8, making note of the beautiful lazy-susan, as you imagine the family memories to be made around this table.
THE GREAT ROOM: The grand kitchen, with granite countertops and additional island seating for six more, will delight the serious chef in you. The Thermador gas range, walk-in pantry, and generously outfitted cupboards allow you to entertain in high style.
Turning to the professionally decorated living room, sporting black leather furniture with ample seating for all, imagine sitting by the blazing gas-log fireplace, or watching a movie in sharp 3D with theatre-quality surround sound on the 55'' flatscreen HDTV. Plug in your iPod (or create your favorite station on Pandora) for music throughout the house.
Explore the master suite, decorated in unique ironwork and numerous built-in cabinets. Luxuriate in the king-size pillow top bed with high-quality linens, or relax in the softly lit spa-like bathroom. You will find a deep jetted-tub, his and hers sinks and showers , and a special winter treat, the steam shower. Check out the view of Heavenly from the MBR windows or private deck.
HAVE SOME FUN: Downstairs, gather around the 46'' HDTV for TV, a movie, or try your hand at some old-school Nintendo-64 video games. You'll also find a keyboard for making music and a wet bar with a small refrigerator.
There are 2 elegant guest rooms, EACH with pillow-top queen beds and views across the water. The 4th bedroom has 2 twins beds. All bedrooms are spacious, with large mirrored closets. Additional sleeping arrangements consist of a Q sofa bed in the upstairs living room, and a comfortable Q futon in the den.
Take a peek in the garage to find built-in ski and boot racks, snow toys, 3 sets of snowshoes, 2 kayaks, 4 Mongoose mountain bikes, and our newest addition, a ten-foot Stand-Up Paddle Board (SUP). All to be used at your own risk!
Grab one of the fishing rods and try your luck on the dock or one of the local streams. Choose a game of croquet, bocce, volleyball or badminton on the level back lawn. Enjoy a jet massage in the hot tub or hang the hammock for a siesta.
Our Philosophy on Renting Directly from Owner:
We have rented lovely vacation homes and condos directly from owners for many years. The original idea was to eliminate the mark-up of a middle man or property manager. This concept still works! Because you work directly with us, the owners; unlike many other properties which are actually managed by a rental company for a hefty commission; we are able to offer a discounted rate for a top-notch property!
We have owned and enjoyed our second home in Tahoe for 16 years. Our children, family and friends have built lasting memories there as you will see when you read our journal/guest book. We hope that you will continue that tradition.
We are excited by the prospect of sharing our home with you. We will be more than happy to share local area information and knowledge with you to enhance your time at Lake Tahoe. We welcome your questions, ideas and suggestions.
Jane and Roger
The access to Lake Tahoe from the backyard dock, and the view across the wide expanse of waterway to Mt. Tallac are unparalleled.
