About the property

Spacious home newly remodeled, 4 Bdrms+Loft+Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14) Hot Tub

Major renovation completed in 2014. New furniture, appliances and TVs. New hot tub installed winter 2016. Welcome to fantastic Lake Tahoe. Our home is a comfortable large 4000+ square foot creekside lodge style residence on a spacious 1/2 acre lot that backs up to parkland with a year round creek running through it! You'll enjoy the amenities which include state-of-the-art wireless internet, 3 flat screen TVs with HD cable. The home is low elevation and is very close to town and the beaches (3 minutes). It is very family friendly and easily accommodates larger groups and multiple family gatherings. It backs up to parkland, has a year-round creek and has lots of privacy. In the winter it is one of the first streets to be cleared of snow by the city so you are ready to hit the slopes early. We also employ a snow clearing service to clear the driveway, walkways and parking pad.

You and your family and friends can enjoy meals on the balconies while looking at the towering pines and listening to the comforting sounds of the rushing creek. You can choose a picnic down by the creek with friends and family, enjoy the solitude with a glass of wine and a loved one, or just sit alone with your thoughts. This environment is guaranteed to restore your soul.

Our house is on 3 levels, has 4 bedrooms and a loft area. The first level bedroom is actually an attached apartment/game room with fireplace, bathroom, kitchen and a sun room; perfect for a separate family or a place for teenagers to help maintain a level of separation. This room is set up like a family room and sleeps 5+. It has its own flat screen TV and HD cable newly remodeled bathroom and separate entrance.

Here is the bedroom and bed breakdown:

Master Bedroom - King Sized Bed & TV- Sleeps 2

Bedroom #2 - Queen Sized Bed - Sleeps 2

Bedroom #3 - Queen Sized Bed, Full Sized lower bunk, single top bunk, childs bed - Sleeps 4-6

Apartment - 2 Queen Sized Beds, Queen Sized sleeper couch & TV- Sleeps 6

Loft - Queen Sized sleeper sofa & 6 foot couch sleeps 2-3.

Library - Single sleeper couch - Sleeps 1.


Our house has a fully stocked kitchen with a breakfast bar, a formal dining room with a view of the creek, and a spacious living room with a wood burning fireplace and 20 foot pine covered ceilings. We have quality furniture throughout the house. There 3 new flat screens. There is HD cable TV and a state-of-the-art wireless internet connection for fast and dependable far reaching connections from all rooms and even at the creek!. There is a large mud room as you enter the house off the garage that can accommodate over 12 sets of skis, boots, jackets and snow boards. We also have a laundry room with a brand new washer and dryer. There is a 2 car garage and a huge parking pad that can easily accommodate an RV, a boat trailer, snowmobiles, and several cars.

We often bring our sons, family members and friends to relax and take in all of Lake Tahoe's splendor. We have great memories and we know you will create them, too, in our comfortable home.

At the house we supply a full booklet on restaurants, maps, recommendations, and instructions on many of Lake Tahoe’s offerings. We know you will find this helpful in maximizing your time at our home. We also supply all dishes, silverware, linens, coffee maker, etc.

This is a non smoking home. We will not rent to vacationing students or singles under 25 years of age unless accompanied by an adult guardian or parent. This is the way we maintain our standard of excellence and comfort for our friends and guests.

Incline has three private beaches for your enjoyment. In the Spring and Summer months you can hike, swim in the lake at it's private beaches(3 minutes), raft on the Truckee River, shop, gamble at the Hyatt (5 minutes), or take in the gaming life in the South Shore Casinos or Downtown Reno (both about 35 minutes away). During the Fall and Winter months you can add all the great winter activities Lake Tahoe has become famous for, including world class ski resorts, all a short driving distance from our home.

A private chef is available upon request. Please call for pricing.

We have supplied lots of photos of our home for your viewing. We know you will love it as much as we do!

We truly believe the North Shore of the lake, and Incline Village in particular, is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Incline Village is preferable to the rest of the lake because it's proximity to Reno and the Reno/Tahoe airport (35 minutes) and it's central position to all the great ski and recreation resorts. From our house you're never more than 35 minutes from either Squaw Valley or Heavenly Valley, less than 20 minutes to Northstar and the awesome town of Truckee is about 25 minutes. You are less than 20 minutes to Mt. Rose resort and less than 8 minutes from Incline's own Diamond Peak ski resort!

Mark Twain once describing Lake Tahoe said, 'I thought it must be the fairest picture the whole earth affords' and the Indians referred to it as 'big sky lake'. Lake Tahoe is best known for its beautiful blue and clear water (99% pure), and is surrounded by mountains which rise more than 4,000 feet above the shore. The lake is 22 miles long, 12 miles wide; about one-third lies in Nevada, the rest in California. Elevation at the lake is 6,229 feet.

A Washoe County Rental Tax of 13% is required for all reservations.

About Gerard Bisignano

My wife and I have been married for almost 24 years and we have 2 boys who love to snowboard. We live in the Los Angeles community of Palos Verdes Estates. After much research we chose Incline Village because of it's great reputation, it's close proximity to the Reno airport and it's centrality to all the great attractions that Lake Tahoe's has to offer. This is a 2nd home for us and we enjoy sharing it with friends, family members and our guests who appreciate both Incline Village in particular and Lake Tahoe in general. After many months of extensive renovation we have reopened our home in 2014.

Gerard Bisignano purchased this house in 2005

Why Gerard Bisignano chose Lake Tahoe Area

My wife grew up in the Bay area and due to her familiarity with Lake Tahoe we started coming here since we got married in 1990. Because I am a Southern California native I was used to going to Mammoth. We have always wanted to buy a 2nd home here and in 2005 finally decided it was time. We are so glad we purchased a home in Incline Village. It is central to all parts of the lake and is the closest Tahoe community to the Reno airport. It also has the private beaches and golf courses that we and our guests can enjoy. Most importantly, it is quiet and serene. Our desire is to share it with guests, family and friends and have the home as a legacy to pass to our children and (eventual) grandchildren.

What makes this house unique

The location is serene yet close to everything. We can hang out at the house all day and read and listen to the sounds of the creek. In just a few minutes we can be at one of the great local restaurants or private beaches. In 20 minutes we can be in Northstar or Truckee, 40 minutes to Heavenly or Squaw Valley.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great house for our group of 10 allowing us individual privacy when needed and large gathering areas for our group family times. Close to town when we wanted to head to a restaurant and close to the market when we decided to cook at the home in the well equipped kitchen. Jacuzzi time every night was great. Well designed home, clean and stocked. Beautiful sounds of the creek and great times sitting down at the creek. Great value!

Relax and enjoy the beauty inside and outside of this wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cabin home that provides plenty of room for family together time. If you need some alone time, enjoy peace and quiet in any of the bedrooms or downstairs apartment. My favorite spot was sitting in the dining area watching the squirrels run up and down the trees and the beauty of the falling snow. Our kids enjoyed going down to the creek. Close to Incline Village shops and market and an easy short drive to shopping in Kings Beach and Tahoe City. Great getaway spot!

Great pad, location for getaway weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Rented house for weekend for 12 people. Layout and location was great as were amenities. Quiet neighborhood with plenty of room for parking. Although we did not take advantage of beach reservations/passes we were originally unaware they existed (note these are reservations only, not cost-free). Most guests were comfortable with arrangements. Kitchen updated/modern, but a tad smaller than appears on photos so it gets a little crowded when there are too many cooks working. TVs and wifi worked great/flawless. Hot tub looks brand new and worked great. Owner is very accommodating with questions regarding property. One minor quibble: the drip coffee maker produced a pretty harsh aftertaste and smell - not sure if it needs cleaning/descaling or someone put too much solution in and it didn't get flushed fully. Would stay again.

Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to comfortably stay for a group of couples what were coming in from San Francisco for the 4th of July. WOW! This place was absolutely amazing. Definitely big enough for a large group. This would be a great place for a family too because there is a lot of space (and ping pong!). Loved the kitchen and dining room too. Would absolutely recomend this place. Gerard was an amazing host and very great at communicating with me even on a holdiay weekend. Thank you for letting us stay in your home - I look forward to visiting next year!

Good house, bad business

  • 1 of 5

We definitely enjoyed our time at the home. The kids loved the creek behind the house, though the trail down to it awkwardly led through some neighbors' yards.

Listing was pretty accurate with the following exceptions. The "private beach" you have access to isn't actually included with the rental. In order to use the private beach, we had to do the following:

- request access specifically from the owner

- separately confirm the request with the Incline Village rec center (which in our case, wasn't actually received)

- physically obtain passes from the rec center for each occupant

- pay $12 per person per day for use of any of the 3 "private" beaches

Bottom line, it was a hassle and an unexpected expense.

Additionally, we worked out a $200 active duty military discount with the owner that he never honored.

Owner's Response: Access to the great beaches, Rec Center and golf courses are offered to all guests of homeowners to Incline Village. The guests fees are not included in the rental fee and we will be sure all of our future guests are fully aware. The creek runs through our property though it can be a little challenging getting there (20 yards or so) because it is a bit steep but my 86 year old mom loves to go down and does make the short walk (I do not encourage our guests to cross over to the neighbor's property to access the creek). We do offer a discount to active military and we so appreciate your service! We receive great reviews and appreciate the great guests we've had who continue to re-book for their vacations.

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in the Creek side Lodge located in Incline Village. The home is warm and very inviting with tall ceilings and lots of windows with beautiful views. There were plenty of bed choices for our large family and lots of bathrooms(#3) . The desk provided us with an additional living space to enjoy. The kitchen was small but workable. With a large family it was nice to have a laundry room with a big enough washer and dryer for all the beach towels. Shopping is near by and we loved Mo Fo Pizza and "T's" BBQ for eating out. The owners provided us with passes to Incline's private beaches, however we loved both Sandy Harbor and Kings Beach. Sandy Harbor fills up fast so go early (before 0930). The owners provide a detail information package with lots of great information and were great communicators while we were there and responded to inquires quickly. We certainly would rent this home again.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place big enough to house my family with 4 children, my brothers family with 4 children, and my parents. This was the perfect place for us. Beautiful home, serene creek running thru the backyard, plenty of space, and close to many attractions in the North shore. We had a great time! Highly recommend this rental to anyone looking for a spacious home and a relaxing weekend in Tahoe.

Our home is in the Ponderosa area of Incline village where homes have some of the largest lots. Our property sits on almost 1/2 an acre that backs up to parkland and has a year round creek that runs through it. We are 35-40 minutes from the Reno airport and are located very close to the intersection of Highway 431 (Mt. Rose Hwy.) and Highway 28 (Tahoe Blvd.). We are 1 1/2 miles from the Incline's main downtown area and

1 1/2 miles from Burnt Cedar Beach, one of Inclines 2 private beaches. Our place is 2 1/2 miles from the Hyatt Regency with its restaurants and great casino. We are located about 20 minutes from Northstar ski resort, 20 minutes from the town of Truckee and 20 minutes from the Mt. Rose ski resort. We are approximately 8 minutes from Incline's own Diamond Peak ski resort. The Casinos at South Lake Tahoe and the ski resort at Heavenly Valley are a beautiful 23 miles drive and Squaw Valley ski resort is an equally breathtaking 19 mile drive.
