Cozy, functional mountain home set up for family style living. Large entry way with stone floor and lots of hanging and storage space for everyone's gear. Open living room with gas fireplace and plenty of comfy seating. Dining room features large oak table and chairs with seating for six; table expands to accommodate up to 12. Fully stocked kitchen with pots, pans, and everything you need to meet your culinary demands. Bathrooms with new floors and fixtures. Bedrooms with fresh beds, down comforters and fluffy pillows.

Located on a quiet, flat and sunny street very close to downtown Tahoe City. Great street for the kids to play and close enough for a walk to town in less than ten minutes. Tahoe House coffee and pastries and Blue Moon Natural foods are located just around the corner (or shorter if you cut through the woods). Also, the trailhead for Page Meadows is a quarter mile from the front door for awesome hiking and mountain biking. Walk to the river for summertime fun. Great, easy winter access as well.

About Eric DesLauriers

We have lived in Tahoe since 1989 and love it here. We both came to ski and live in these beautiful mountains and never want to leave. Eric has been a professional skier since 1989 and still works as ski guide and coach in the winter. Laura teaches school in Truckee. We know what it takes to make a great home here in the mountains and this house reflects our commitment to a comfortable life and a warm, happy, and functional retreat for our family and our guests.

Eric DesLauriers purchased this house in 1996

Why Eric DesLauriers chose Tahoe City

We chose this street and house because it is sunny, warm, flat with easy access, no traffic (on a horse-shoe road) and it is located close to town, skiing and wilderness trailheads. We are a short walk to downtown Tahoe City, and close drive of only twelve minutes to Squaw Valley. The house also offers a beautiful, large and private backyard bordering greenbelt forest.

What makes this house unique

You can enjoy plenty of warmth and comfort and functional use of space when staying at our house. We have made many modifications including large, custom-cabinets and stone floor on the entry way to handle the demands of kids and parents with active lifestyles. We have lots room to dry and store everyone's gear. The living and dining rooms seat the whole family with the gas fireplace to provide warmth and ambiance. Everyone will be toasty on cold nights with down-filled covers on all the beds. And the full-featured, private hot-tub spa will be a welcome warm-up after a day in the mountains.

Comfortable family home in Tahoe

  • 3 of 5

Overall, the home was comfortable, clean and welcoming. Positives were location, restful outside area, clean hot tub for relaxing, comfortable king size bed and working wi-fi. The kitchen was a bit dark, could use a good ceiling scrubbing and cooking supplies a bit limited for our taste. If planning menus, be sure to pack any special spices and/or cooking tools that you may need. Also, paper towels and toilet paper might be included on your list. The TV could use an update and although there was a stereo system, there were no instructions on how to use the stereo so bring your own music devices. Also, the BBQ was very dirty and required substantial cleaning before use. Just everyday things that one needs to be prepared for, but overall our visit was very pleasant.

Amazing family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in the cozy vacation home. We really enjoyed location, which was close to everything but still very peaceful. The house had plenty of open space, and we really enjoyed grilling outside and the going into the hot tub. The whole family had a blast and would definitely go back to this lovely place!

Cozy cabin!

  • 3 of 5

Had a great stay in this cozy house - really enjoyed the location, the easy gas fireplace, the hot tub and just the overall coziness of the house. We stayed for a week and really enjoyed walks in the neighborhood with my dog, easy access to downtown Tahoe City and cooking in - the kitchen has everything you need to make a great meal!

A few suggestions would make the house even better - definitely need some type of deadbolt or additional lock on the back door. More than once, we thought the door was completely closed, but it blew open and it wasn't very windy out. Second, would be great to have a guest book for the house just to have easy access to instructions for checking out, how to use the tv/audio and hot tub. While this did not damper our stay at all, would have just saved us some time in acclimating to the house.

Great home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for us. Took myself and 5 others up to Tahoe from the Bay Area for a ski weekend and we couldn't have been happier with the space. Plenty of room, a nice table for board games, and the hot tub is glorious after a punishing day up on the slopes. The chairs and couches were also super comfy. We hiked up to Tahoe City through the woods in the snow (about a 10-15 minute walk) and walked along the river. Homeowner was easy to contact, and even came by to help shovel snow without being asked! I will definitely be looking at this place for my future Tahoe City trips!

The Granlibakken trail head is just around the corner from the house, offering a trail well suited for hiking, trail running, and mountain biking. It accesses the Truckee River, Paige Meadows and, further along, ties into Alpine Meadows and the Tahoe Rim Trail. Generally, it is a good trail with moderately steep sections.
