About the property

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.

Perfect place for four people.

  • 5 of 5

Small, but perfectly furnished and cozy condo. We were family of four, kids loved the bunkbed, and the queen bed was very comfortable. Great location, hike anywhere you want around. Can't wait for winter, will definately go to Kirkwood and will look if this condo is available. Plus, at skying sezon the hottub should be open, it looked great, but be aware, it is closed at non sezon time.

Small and Cozy with everything our young family of 4 needed!

  • 5 of 5

We came in the summer and wanted a home base for some day hikes in the surrounding area. We have a 4 year old and 7 year old, and this apartment was a great space to spend the evenings. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils and pots AND as a major bonus it has a very nice gas range/oven. There is an easy trail from the meadow outside to the main ski lodge area. Our 4 year old handled that walk easily. We took advantage of the ski-lift assisted hiking, and highly recommend it. The Upper Corral Trail was a beautiful, mostly flat trail through meadows and wildflowers. Had we not been with a 4 year old, we would have gone even higher on the lifts. My only complaint is that the jacuzzi in the complex was closed in August, so we were not able to use that feature of the rental. Otherwise, we are putting this unit on our favorite list and would definitely consider it in the next couple years.

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!
