Overview

About the property

Enjoy hiking, sledding & cross-country skiing right out your back door

Koru Lodge is a newly rebuilt luxury home sits adjacent to miles of National Forest with stunning views. It offers the warmth and tranquility you and your loved ones have been looking for. Enjoy the comforts of a romantic home where you can sit in front of the fire and just gaze for hours enjoying the epic views. There is 2200 square feet of living space with the living room opening onto a 25x25 square foot deck to enjoy your morning coffee or during the evening where you can sit and enjoy a glass of wine as you watch the sun setting over the mountains. The jacuzzi on the deck offers mood lights and music at your beck and call. Stairs lead down from the deck into a large fenced yard where you will find gates that take you into the National Forest. The Great Room features large windows where you can relax and enjoy the sun light, cozy up and read a good book or just sit and become mesmerized by the magnificent setting. These are the days that create memories which last a lifetime.

The full kitchen at Koru Lodge faces views to the front of the home, a dining table which seats 8 and a granite island which faces the great room and the pool table. There are two bedrooms upstairs on the main living floor with one bathroom. One bedroom has a California King bed with a private deck which faces West to the National Forest and has a LCD TV. The second bedroom has a queen size bed with a LCD TV. The loft is off the main floor living where you will be able to view the stars as you fall into a deep slumber in your cozy queen size bed. The bathroom on the main living area is next to the master bedroom and has a two person slate shower and a double sink. The second bathroom is downstairs down the hall from the inviting 3rd bedroom. This bedroom has a queen size bed with a LCD TV. The bathroom downstairs has access to the laundry room, lower deck and to the back yard. This bathroom has a shower/bathtub combo and a double sink.

Each bed is outfitted with new furnishings and 600 count sheets.

Outside the gates of this incredible home is miles and miles of exploring for you and your family. Only a one mile hike away is Seneca Pond and if you are up for more of an adventure you can hike to Angora Lake which takes 2-3 hours round trip. During the winter you can cross country ski, snow shoe or go snowmobiling by just stepping out your back door. Heavenly Ski Resort, the casinos and Sierra At Tahoe Ski Resort are all 15 minute drives. The home is only 8 minutes to the Y downtown shopping, Meyers restaurants, grocery store, golf courses and the Tahoe Airport.

If you must work, bring your laptop as we have wireless access.

We have sleds and snowshoes available for you to enjoy during the winter season.

There is a two car garage and the driveway can park a large recreational vehicle or a boat.

If you need concierge services or your kitchen stocked upon arrival please inquire when making your reservation

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family. We loved have several hiking trails right out side the backyard gate. Everyday was adventure, we found a pond, creeks and collected lots of rocks. The home was perfect for us, the kids played pool and loved sleeping in the loft. We loved just relaxing in the hot tube at the end of the day. We will definitely stay here again.

Thank you for a wonderful vacation!

AWESOME!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th or 6th stay at Koru and as always, it was fantastic!! We feel like this is our vacation home away from home, and the fact that it's upgraded and appointed even more than our own house, is an added bonus! The owners could not be nicer or more accommodating and we feel blessed to have stumbled upon this "little bit of heaven!"

The perfect home!

  • 5 of 5

The views were amazing in this home!!! We felt the pictures looked great but there is no comparison to how truly beautiful these views are. The owner was very kind and responded immediately to all our questions. The kitchen couldn't have been better fitted for our family. Our only regret was that we didn't have more time in this perfect home! We will be back.

Our group had a great time! The cabin was cozy and perfect for cooking and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the view from the window and were able to walk a short distance into the Forrest behind the house to a little sledding hill! We cooked dinner every night and looked at the stars from the hot tub! Amazing Tahoe retreat and not far from the slopes. We didn't want to leave!

Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property this past MLK weekend. The house was spacious, very clean, well kept and fully furnished. It is exactly as described on the listing. Cathy was great on communication, she replied to my emails/texts within couple hours, and very flexible on check in/out time. We will definitely return to this house in the summer.
