Several local restaurants are just a short walk. The Old Range Steakhouse is at the foot of our street, so you can walk down to dinner and drinks and enjoy the gorgeous sunsets on the lake. It is a short drive to the main shopping area of King's Beach is a short drive for groceries and other shopping, and Tahoe City is a short drive the other direction. The house has carpets and hardwood floor, granite kitchen and newly tiled baths.

About Joyce and Bob Miller, owners.

My husband and I live in San Jose, and have been renting our two vacation rental homes in Tahoe since 2004. We often have our guests tell us that staying in one of our homes is more like enjoying a friend's Tahoe Cabin than a rental house. I make it our policy to have a beautifully clean, nicely decorated Tahoe Style home for your mountain vacation, winter or summer.

Joyce and Bob Miller, owners. purchased this house in 2000

Why Joyce and Bob Miller, owners. chose Tahoe Vista

Our Agatam Lodge house is located in Tahoe Vista, between King's Beach and Tahoe City, just up the rise from the neighborhood beach. The house sits away from the street giving our house and high deck a lot of privacy. This house is the closest one to the beach, and there is a filtered lakeview from the front deck. Location,location,location!

This home is also very close to Northstar, about 10 minutes away, and 20 minutes to Squaw Valley.

What makes this house unique

Only 1 Block to the Beach!! Walk to several great restaurants in Tahoe Vista. Great location for skiing Northstar and Squaw Valley. Right up the street are trails for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter.

There is a sledding hill near the house at the North Tahoe Regional Park off of National Ave. Also tennis courts, baseball diamonds, disk golf, and a playground there, too, for summer fun. We will consider a DOG, not to be left alone. We do have a Pet Fee of $20/Day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Agatam Lakeview Lodge - North Lake Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful home in North Lake Tahoe! Easy to reserve and the owners are very accommodating. One block to the beach, close to everything- shopping, grocery store, restaurants. Twenty min. to Squaw Valley. Two restaurants within walking distance- Mexican and Itian - both had great food and were very affordable. Beautifully appointed home with all the amenities!

Comfortable House

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming house that worked well for two families. The house is in close proximity to everything you need for a great stay--grocery shopping, restaurants, skiing and the lake. It's a quick 20 min drive to Squaw and although we didn't go to Northstar, I would say it's even closer. The kitchen is well equipped, the living is room cozy, and the bedrooms are comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (3 adult couples and small dog) spent Christmas at Agatam Lodge. What a great spot! The house is very comfortable and has everything you need for a family getaway. The location is very desirable — quick walk to the lake, park and hiking/biking trail, less than 5 minute drive to a very nice Safeway, close to both Northstar and Squaw ski resorts. We especially appreciated the very well appointed kitchen with anything you would need for even gourmet meals, including very nice gas grill on the deck. The owners are very nice and respond right away to any questions you might have. This is a wonderful place, highly recommend!

Great Tahoe Vista home. 1 block to beach.

  • 5 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed our week at Agatam Lodge. It was cozy and had all the amenities we needed. It was nice that the kids had the downstairs and we had the upstairs bedroom, since we had 4 teens. I liked the fact that we were close to a beach and very close drive to Kings beach. Also, the Safeway was a 2 minute drive away. The owners were very friendly and helpful and addressed any small issues we had. We will be back in the Summer!!
