About Michelle Farris

This was my childhood vacation home and I spent every year coming up to Tahoe. I love the area, the clean air and the a-frame ceiling provides lots of space to have a family gathering.

Michelle Farris purchased this house in 1976

Why Michelle Farris chose Tahoe Vista

Because it's private, cozy while giving you lots of space to sit and relax while on the computer or watching the kids play outside. There are lots of great restaurants nearby and the North Shore casinos are only 10 minutes away! Tahoe City provides great shopping which is 15 minutes away. Reno is about 50 minutes away.

What makes this house unique

Ski LEASE starts in January - I do not start them in December. Also Checks are preferred method of payment.

Lovely and homey, great location

  • 4 of 5

We rented this cabin late December for an extended family holiday. The cabin is warm and homey, and it's an easy walk to both the beach and a frisbee golf course. We especially loved the big, open living area and everyone fell in love with that couch. Nice views. Very responsive owners went out of their way for us. Tons of towels, but If you're doing a lot of cooking, bring extra supplies (especially sharp knives). Thank you Michelle.

Comfortable home. Plenty of room for the family.

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable. There was a wonderful open living space and large deck. The view was fantastic. We had abundant wildlife, even a couple of bears wandered by one morning. Walkable distance to the beach and trails. It was a perfect Tahoe get-away for us and the family!

Mom's 80th birthday party/ family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was at the perfect locations for us, just a short walk to Moon Dunn Beach. On the weekends when all the beach parking lots are full, it is nice to walk. We grilled every night and spent lots of time on the back deck. The house had plenty of room, I would highly recommend this place!

Spacious home, great location!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with a large group, and we really enjoyed our weekend here. The first floor was open and spacious, perfect for all of us to make dinner and eat together, and the bedrooms were all comfortable. The house is only a mile from Safeway and 20 minutes from Diamond Peak, where we skied, and so close to the beach. The area around the front door tended to get a little icy overnight, but some road salt took care of that, and our weekend was overall wonderful. We'd love to come back.

Beautiful clean home with a great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. We had a group of 12 coworkers and it was a perfect house, cozy but big enough for us to cook and sleep comfortably. Very close to the lake; I would definitely stay here again!

Car: recommended

A perfect location to many local restaurants and nightly music, a beautiful golf course off Hwy 267, great shopping in Truckee and Tahoe City, central to many Ski Resorts including North Star and Alpine Meadows. North Shore casinos are only 10 minutes away and Reno has lots of family activities-driving go carts/video arcades/ movies only 40 minutes from here. Tahoe Vista is the mid point between Tahoe City and Incline village. The beach is a 5 minute drive or a short walk whichever you prefer!

Other Activities: gambling, hiking

Ski: Great location central to most skiing! North Star is only 10 minutes away. Alpine Meadows is 15-20 minutes away and Squaw Valley is 35 minutes away.
