Overview

Kirkwood Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Small but sweet! Lots of wood accents and a fireplace give this recently remodeled studio a warm, cozy feel, perfect for a couple seeking a private mountain getaway or small family looking for an affordable ski vacation where you can park your car in the secure underground lot and forget about it for a few days.

- Walk to lifts!

- Sleeps 4 (1 queen and 2 single bunk beds)

- Indoor Hot Tub perfect for apres ski

- Great mountain views! (See link below for more photos)

For ski and mountain lovers, this cozy, affordable, newly-remodeled studio is located on the big Meadow across the street from Kirkwood Mountain Resort, featuring some of the deepest snow and best ski terrain in the country. A few steps out the back door is direct access to XC ski and snow shoe trails in winter and hiking, mountain biking, spectacular wild flowers and an 18-hole disk golf course in summer. We are on the quiet side of 'The Meadows' building with your own private balcony overlooking the Meadow with spectacular views of Red Cliffs and the surrounding mountains. The main lifts are a short walk (4-5 min.) across the street, or an even shorter shuttle ride, if you prefer not to walk in ski boots. Shuttles run every 10-15 minutes in winter.

One of the nicest features is the on-site, indoor Jacuzzi, just a few steps down the hall adjacent to the building's spacious, newly remodeled lounge with a fireplace, so you don't have to leave the building to take a soak. This is a quiet location near the north end of 'The Meadows' building, providing a relaxing getaway with cozy fireplace (wood supplied), no phones or cable TV (but it does have a DVD/video player and modest film library (or bring your own) to watch movies, and the bar/restaurant 7800 Club nearby has the big screens if you want to catch the “big game.”) For those seeking more excitement, South Lake Tahoe is only a 35 minute drive.

About The Owner

Long before we met and married, we were both 'ski bums' in our former lives. Owning a place in the mountains with close access to the slopes has been a back-burner dream ever since.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose Gold Country / High Sierra

In two words: Great Skiing! But also access to great hiking, mountain biking, snow shoeing, XC skiing, disk golf and scenery. Better snow than Tahoe, closer drive, less traffic, and much less hustle and bustle. But if you want to catch a show or gamble, South Lake is a little over half an hour drive.

What makes this condo unique

Small but sweet! Lots of wood accents and a fireplace give this recently remodeled studio a warm, cozy feel, perfect for a couple seeking a private mountain getaway or small family looking for an affordable ski vacation where you can park the car and forget about it for a few days.

FEATURES & DETAILS:

- Easy walk to main lifts

- Private balcony with great mountain views

- Large common lounge area inside The Meadows building features a fireplace and the only 'in-house' jacuzzi in any of Kirkwood's condos

- Sleeps 4: 1 queen and (2) bunk beds (No maid service, linens or bath towels are included. You'll need to bring 1 Queen and 2 twin sheets and pillowcases)

- Sorry, The Meadows Homeowners Association does not allow pets in rental units under any conditions.

- Specs: 300 sq. feet (15' x 20') studio condominium (not a separate 'cabin') in The Meadows building; additional photos and information available on our website.

Small but Effective

  • 5 of 5

A small unit, but perfectly suited for a couple with two kids who want to be right at Kirkwood. Since this is exactly what we needed... it was perfect!

Cozy, Comfortable, Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Kirkwood is all about the mountain. This condo is located approximately 5 minutes (walking) from the lifts and there is shuttle service available if you don't want to hoof it. The condo is as advertised, it was easy to access thanks to the detailed instructions and the owners were very responsive. Perfectly suited for relaxing, with adequate amenities for cooking (outside food options are very limited). The only reason I am not providing five stars is that upon arrival, the unit had clearly not been cleaned. It wasn't a major issue, but it was a little disappointing since there are cleaning deposits included in this rental, and arriving to a dirty unit wasn't the most pleasant way to start the trip. Fortunately, the owners were responsive and apologetic when we informed them, and refunded all cleaning deposits without question. I understand that mistakes happen, and I would still be happy to rent this Meadows unit again in the future.

Great condo for a family of 4!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here multiple times for our Kirkwood adventures. The condo is perfect for a family of four with a comfy queen bed and bunk beds for the kids. The Meadows is centrally located, with easy access to Chair 6/7 and a quick shuttle ride to any other lift. The common area at The Meadows is beautiful with tables for games, couches for relaxing and a nice hot tub. The condo itself has a beautiful kitchen and bathroom and is extremely cozy with a fireplace, games and movies. Roger and Sandy are extremely responsive and left great directions. I would highly recommend staying here.
