This six bedroom, three bath, is the perfect getaway for both winter and summer. Located in Tahoe City, walking distance to the backside of Alpine Meadows Ski Resort, at the Sherwood Lift high speed quad chair, you can walk there and ski home. No crowds, no lift lines, no hassles. You'll have access to a homeowners parking lot that will allow you to park directly across from the lift if you choose to drive. Alpine Meadows is right next door to Squaw Valley and your ski pass is good for both mountains.

When the snow melts, the surroundings become a playground to hike, bike, and fish. Tennis lovers can enjoy the homeowner tennis court, golf lovers can enjoy the multitude of golf courses within a ten mile radius, beaches and picnic areas are within biking distance to the house. There are a ton of hiking trails just out the back door, and a great fishing creek just down from the home. The activities in the Tahoe Basin are endless. Located on the West shore of Tahoe City, you are three miles from the Lake and restaurants, and close to Chambers Landing and Meeks Bay with great sandy beaches, BBQ grills, incredible views, and a day full of bliss.

The house is chalet-style and has an open floor plan that can accommodate your family and friends well. The 22 foot cathedral ceilings, and floor to ceiling windows, with expansive wrap around deck offer a great house to enjoy the spectacular views from. With 2 sliding glass doors, the sunny deck becomes an extension of the great room with lots of patio furniture, BBQ, and privacy. There is a large 2 car garage with extra parking, and 40 foot enclosed walkway for easy access to your cars in the wintertime.

As you walk in the front door, you are greeted by a Spanish tile hallway leading to 3 bedrooms. There are 2 bedrooms with queen beds, each with a TV, sliding glass door that exits out to a deck. Here you can enjoy a hot tub with the views of Twin Peaks. In the wintertime, you can watch skiers short cut home from Alpine Meadows through the front yard, and in the summertime you can watch squirrels climb the trees. Down the hall is laundry home, full bath, sauna area and another bedroom with queen bed,TV and twin. The sauna is the size of one you'd have a gym: 2 levels with enough room to spread out in. Next to the sauna is a changing area and with a 'Finnish' touch. Cool off in the shower room with four shower heads and glass atrium that looks out into the forest. It's a great way to end a non stop day. The changing area is also connected to a full bathroom. There are bathrobes for your use during your stay here.

The second level is the 'Great Room' and that it is. With 22 foot cathedral ceilings with floor to ceiling windows you won't be able to keep your eyes off the beautiful views of Twin Peaks . Bring your binoculars to view the occasional extreme skiers who snow mobiles up the mountain range and ski's down. Two sliding glass doors exit out to a sunny wrap around deck with a barbecue, and patio furniture which is used in summer and winter. This level has the kitchen, living area and dining area all looking out to the views. The granite countertop kitchen is fully stocked and overlooks the living and dining area. The living area has a leather sectional and faces a large stone fireplace and 55" HDTV. The crackling sound of wood burning on a snowy day is a treat. The dining area is 1/2 nook with pillows, and 1/2 chairs. You can eat here, or relax here. It all faces an entertainment center with TV. DVD, stereo, IPod dock, and some games. From all areas in the main area, you can watch TV, enjoy the fireplace and views, or socialize with the rest of your group.

Off the living area is another full bath attached to a bedroom with queen bed and TV. Next to that room is the Master Bedroom. There is a King-size sleigh bed with TV, half bath off a changing area, and walk in closet. Indirect lighting and views of the forest make this room a bonus. Up the stairs from the living area, is an enclosed loft with pool table, TV, and two twin beds. Play pool during the day, and use the room for sleeping at night.

Because Lake Tahoe's motto is just 'play hard' extra attention has been given to a great bed and a good nights sleep. All the bedding is Hotel Style with memory foam mattress pad, luxury 300 count sheets, 4 down or down alternative pillows, duvet, and bed throw. You'll feel like you're in an upscale hotel.

There is wireless internet, 7 TV's on DISH 2 DVD players, 2 iPods docks, and 2 stereo's, washer and dryer, as well as upgraded towels, and extra niceties to make your stay enjoyable. When you arrive at the house, all beds are made, towels hung, and coffee service is provided for your first morning. The furnishings are user friendly with plenty of seating for your family and friends. High ceilings with large wooden beams, triangle shaped windows, and mountain decor compliment the 'Tahoe' feeling. The location and amenities of this home makes this a great vacation home year-round.

Why owner/property manager chose California

Lake Tahoe is unparallel to any other destination I've been to in the world. The skiing in the wintertime is suburb, the beaches at the Lake in the summertime is liked being in Hawaii. White sand and crystal blue water. The weather is perfect and concussive to doing anything you want outdoors, year-around..

What makes this house unique

The location and privacy. Homeowners and their guests have access to a private parking lot right across the street from the Sherwood lift at Alpine Meadows. You can walk there from the house, or park there and hop on the lift! There is also a warming hut by the lift that serves BBQ, hot chocolate, beer, etc and lots of chairs

scattered that allows you to soak up the sun and be a spectator instead of participant.

I like both seasons. The skiing speaks for itself, but in the summertime there are tons on trails to explore around the house. Page Meadows is a popular trail system located a block away. The house is just up from the Lake at Sunnyside Resort which has a great restaurant with huge deck on piers right on the lake. You can spend all day here watching the wooden boats come in for a beverage or dining. You can access the bike path here and ride to River Ranch which is a beautiful ride along the Truckee River. Once you get to River Ranch, you can enjoy another great deck for dining while watching the river rafters come in. Rafting is a fun thing to do also.

Tahoe City has lots of restaurants and shops to enjoy. There is always something going on there to add to a weekend.

Even though there are tons of things to visit in Lake Tahoe, I totally enjoyed just hanging out in the house and on the deck. You really feel away from it all, but are close to everything.Plus...the views from this house are incredible both in the wintertime and summertime

Guestbook comments from the owner

Jealous we don't own a ski home.

We had a Family Dream Week together at this home and sometimes you may me apprehensive about booking a home you've never seen, but let me assure you this home is everything and more. It has a great layout , plenty for our family of 12 children and grandchildren, it was very well equipped with all we needed. The snow was wonderful and this has a great yard for the children to play and be together. The home is also in a great location, close to everything, the slopes are wonderful and the private hot tub waiting for you is an added is professionally maintained every week as I met the serviceman , so no worries there. If you are looking for a small group or a large group, this is the place I would choose and reccomend to all. The owner was great to rent from. She respects your privacy but right there if you need anything. One added note, the best thing we found in all our activies was the warming hut at the Sherwood lift. Those that didn't ski would walk there for lunch and enjoy all the activities without having to participate. It was great spot to rent and now we want to buy our own ski house.

Excellent house. Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

I came up with with a group of friends for the weekend to do some skiing and snowshoeing. We had a great time! The cabin was perfect! Can't beat the location too, just down the road from the Sherwood lift at Alpine Meadows. I would definitely stay here again.

House was okay but had issues

  • 3 of 5

We stayed here during a long three day weekend with our friends. While we were very excited about going skiing in Tahoe we found this place to be a little under our expectation. The house is nice and cozy but the pictures make it look much larger than it really is. Regardless of size we were happy to stay there but encountered major issues with the electricity. Now, the rental agreement stated that the breaker would shut down if it was overloaded. Well, we encountered that this was beyond the "normal" range of how breakers work. Apparently the breaker would trip almost every 30 mins something would not work, whether the stove, the hot tub, the light switches, the fridge, the freezer, etc. It happened so much that we realized that the electric wiring of the house is in dire need of repair. I mean it's not normal for the breaker to be so weak that it overloads the circuit just because you have the stove and fridge running at the same time. This issue needs to be fixed asap so that people don't get left without electricity. Also the breaker is outside the house and in a terrible location to reach it, meaning we constantly had someone on "breaker duty" no joke! Also the house was a bit dirty including the floors. I think for the price we should have gotten a discount considering all the things that were wrong with it and the time it took to fix.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review and I'm glad you enjoyed the house. The electricity in the house does not need repair and is set up like any house. It does have a large sauna and the only time a breaker will trip is when the circuit is overloaded by too people using sauna, hot tub, washer/dryer, oven, hair dryers etc at the same time. You had an exceptionally large group that weekend, and even though we do out best to make it feel like a nice hotel, there is only so much electricity a home can handle before a breaker will trip. A typical size group staying here doesn’t trip breakers. I provide many details and instructions of the house prior to arrival in case there is a power outage or breaker tripped. I'm glad you were able to follow them.

We have no negative comments - the home itself was well kept, and very inviting. It was more than adequate for our 3 generation family. The location was convenient to town , yet the spacious lots gave a sense of privacy. Couldn't be better for skiing Alpine Meadows. We used the homeowners parking lot and everyone was able to ski home at their leisure. So convenient and was able to really get a fully day of skiing in without traffic or shuttles. Hope its available for our next visit there as we will definitely try to rent it again for our family.

Worth the drive...

  • 5 of 5

My husband and 2 other couples had a business trip to Reno and rented another one of Sandy's properties. We were just as happy with this home and location. Nice open area's with great views and plenty of seating. Beds were very comfortable and we spent most of our time (outside of driving back and forth to Reno) sitting by the fireplace pretending there was snow on the ground. We look forward to another business or pleasure trip here.

Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Alpine Meadows. At first from the map I thought the house would be too far from the lake but was pleasantly surprised it took about 15-20 minutes to get to Meeks bay, our favorite beach. We had several families staying at the house with people coming and going and it was wonderful to have 5 bedrooms and the bonus room upstairs for the kids. The hot tub and sauna really added to the experience. Just a caution there are a lot of steps up to get to the house so this would be a problem for the elderly and a hassle with small kids. I would suggest when it comes time to replace the refrigerator they purchase a larger one for this size of a home. Thanks for a great trip we will be back!

Wonderful home with great views in a peaceful area!

  • 5 of 5

After a long week of dance competition in Reno we couldn't have chosen a more perfect retreat to end our vacation at. This was our first time renting a vacation house and it was great. We were very pleased with the location, the amenities, and the cleanliness of the house.

From the moment we checked in and got settled, we it really felt like a home away from home.

The kitchen had everything you might need (except spices but they let us know that ahead of time so we could pack everything we needed). There was enough room to seat everyone at the dining table.The home was equipped with books and games plus a TV in each room keep our families entertained. The hot tub was clean and had a great view.

The little grocery store at the end of the road was where we food shopped, ,usually followed by a refreshments on the deck at SunnySide Resort. Spectacular. I don’t think Ive ever been to a restaurant on piers in a lake with such incredible views and setting.

We didn't have any major issues and enjoyed our stay immensely. Planning on coming back and making this an annual stay after our competition in Reno.

Located in one of the most desired neighborhoods on the North Shore, you are walking distance to the back side of Alpine Meadows with privileges. There is a private parking pass that will allow you to park right at the Sherwood lift, a quad high speed chair, and get on! Alpine Meadows allows the homeowners living in this neighborhood and/or guests to start here without at ticket and ski to the front side to purchase it. And, the homeowners have their own snow grader which purposely leaves enough snow along the roads so you can ski home if you want to leave your group. Don't ski? Enjoy the hut at the lift for morning coffee, lunch, or just watching all the activity on the hill. In the summertime, the cat tracks become a playground for mountain biking and hiking. Endless trails with Lake views and wildflowers will keep you entertained.

The snow melts into Ward Creek which is easily accessed from the house, known for its trout fishing. Tennis? yep...1 homeowner tennis courts are here for your use.

Ward Valley is known for its peaceful setting of houses divided by forest land and views that are breathless. Just up from the Lake at Sunnyside Resort, you have total peace at the house, and 3 miles away you're at the Lake with shops, restaurants, nightlife, and an array of activities. Tahoe City is the city to be in on the North Shore. With Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley, and Homewood at your doorstep, you won't be able to ski a run twice. The winter months is a haven for skiing, snow boarding snow snowmobiling. cross county skiing, and with its backdrop the Lake.. you can't beat the experience.

Summer is as good as the winter. The Truckee River opens its doors to the melting snow which offers a nice river for rafting. You can pick up your raft in Tahoe City and cruise down to River Ranch. Its mild enough for the whole family. At River Ranch there is a large outdoor deck with BBQ, outdoor bars, and a great spot to watch the rafters come it. Raft 1 day, bike another. You can access the bike path from the house that will meander along the Truckee River to Truckee. River Ranch is a 1/3 way point.

Tahoe City boasts Commons Beach, but some of the best beaches on the Lake are found on the West Shore. Meeks Bay has a beach that will remind you of being in a cove somewhere in Hawaii but with mountains. Pristine, crystal clear blue water, white sand beach, smell of tall pines, views of mountains. Its a wonderful setting for a picnic. Chambers Landing is known for the long pier/dock with bar and restaurant at the end of it. This is where all the great wooden boats eventually stop at for a refreshment. The beach is beautiful here, and the entertainment remember able. Can't beat the lakefront restaurants. West Shore Cafe has dining on their pier, with large deck, outdoor bars, and incredible food. 3 miles from the house is Sunnyside Resort with outdoor deck, boat rentals, pier and definitely an afternoon libation. You'll find a multitude of lake front venues in downtown Tahoe City.

Lake Tahoe is truly a special place, and this is a special house to enjoy it in.
