This upscale home is located in the sought-after area of Skyland, a lakeside community within Zephyr Cove, which boasts its own private beach.
The refined charm of this English Tudor home is manifested within its 3,400 square feet, with classic period furniture of excellent quality mixed with typical Tahoe touches. The entire home is decorated to appeal to the finest of tastes.
The main floor is the place to gather. The main living room is graced with a steep, open-beam ceiling, and a large brick, wood-burning FIREPLACE AND 60' DIGITAL CABLE TV. Across the hall is the game room with the POOL TABLE AND FOOSBALL TABLE. When it is time to relax, wander outside to the HOT TUB, and enjoy the large deck with PROPANE BARBEQUE. There are 4 over sized luxurious bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms upstairs for the ultimate in relaxation. Come and enjoy this home. We know you will love it!
There you can enjoy movies or games on the large, 60-inch projection television or listen to the stereo.
Just off the living room is an alcove with book shelves full of reading materials and a game table ready for a game of bridge or poker. Across the hall is the pool table room which is set up for those who enjoy the game, or those wanting to learn.
Around the corner, dinner is cooking in the huge kitchen which is stocked with all that is needed to cook your gourmet meal.
Upstairs is the quiet area. There are four large bedrooms -- each with its own elegantly appointed bed and a television. The master bedroom has a 25-inch TV and the other king bedrooms have a 20-inch TV. Two of the lakeside bedrooms -- one of which is the master -- have filtered lake views of Lake Tahoe.
The large master bath has a reviving steam shower to relax those muscles after a long day skiing on the slopes or hiking the mountains. The other two baths have either a stall shower or a shower over a bath tub.
For those who aren't quite ready to go to bed, but want some quiet time away from the partying group downstairs, there is a family room with a 27-inch television, two comfy, leather recliners, and a sofa.
Outside there is a large deck where you can enjoy the sounds of the boats on Lake Tahoe, and the sounds of the wind whistling through the pine trees. Enjoy the new hot tub (new for summer 2003), barbecuing and toddy time while watching the many of animals at play from this relaxing vantage point. Better yet, take a walk down to the beach and wiggle your toes in the lake.
Or do what we do, and take a cup of coffee to watch the sun coming up over the lake!
For the ultimate of enjoyment in Tahoe, give this property a try!

The chalet is close to the lake in a lovely neighborhood. Being close to a private beach is also beneficial. However, the property is not well-maintained with many cleanliness and safety issues. Not a good value for the price paid.
Our family had a great time while staying at Zephyr Cove! The house was amazing and spacious! Cheryl was easy to reach if we had any questions about our stay. The private beach was amazing as were the trails that we took a walk on. It was the perfect location for us to visit Tahoe as well as Reno and Minden. If you enjoy running, the streets of the community offers a great workout! Would and will recommend this rental to my friends!
Our family rented this property from July 23rd through 30, 2016. The pictures listed on the Homeaway website are very dated and do not accurately represent the listed property. Our complaint mainly concerns the overall lack of cleanliness of the property. On the fourth day of our stay, we realized that mice had gotten into our food in the pantry. Upon further investigation, we found mice feces throughout the kitchen, pantry, closets, and pullout bed. Upon finding mouse droppings, we retrieved a vacuum from a closet in order to vacuum any crumbs that might attract more mice. The vacuum itself was sitting in a closet full of visible mouse droppings. Which, lead our family to believe, that the owner or minimally the housecleaners were aware of the infestation. The next day an exterminator arrived to spray for exterior bugs. We asked him to come into the home and he verified that there is indeed a mouse infestation. He assured us that he would make the property owner aware of the problem the same day. We documented the findings with photographs and sent them to owner.
Additional complaints regarding the property include mold growing in the kitchen pantry and upstairs bathroom; upstairs bathroom smells of urine; carpets are stained throughout; dish scrubbers were used and caked with former renters' food; kitchen drawers are stuck due to grime; there is dirt in many of the kitchen drawers; the barbecue was not clean when we arrived and the cleaning brush was broken (and there's a hole in the barbecue where grease drips onto the patio); pool table is unleveled and slate is not aligned; foosball table is broken. Spa was broken upon arrival and very dirty. This issue was addressed immediately with the owner. The owner did have the spa cleaned and repaired, however, it was in disrepair until our 4th day (half way through our vacation).
If it were one or two problems, we would have disregarded all problems, however, the mouse infestation and the overall dirtiness of the property is not acceptable.
After departure we discussed our stay with the owner. She agreed to a partial refund for our dissatisfaction. However, dishonestly never returned any funds.
Our stay was very disappointing and frustrating. I strongly recommend you do not rent this home or from this owner.
This home is very spacious and great for large groups. Plenty of bathrooms and the beds are comfy too. Set in a beautiful neighborhood close to the lake. The neighborhood beach is perfect to spend the day at. The kitchen had more than enough dishes and glasses and the large kitchen table was perfect for the whole family to gather at.
This home is massive. So big, and room for everyone. We enjoyed playing pool and foosball. We had a lovely 25th Anniversary here. We would most definitely want to rent again. Thank you for a wonderful memories on our anniversary with our family. Super location too! We enjoyed the Lakeside Inn, Timbers restaurant for dinner. The Zephyr Cove restaurant for a breakfast. Close to the casinos.
It is nice house. BIG. A lot of space. Close to the ski resort. Everything was as described. id say it needs a little bit more cleaning. we enjoyed it, didnt have any problems with anything. thank you.
