Lake Tahoe North Shore House Rental Photos and Description

3 BRs , plus a tiny bunk room, 2 full Baths and 1 half bath.Sleeps up to 8

Agatam Lodge is a classic Tahoe Mountain home in a great location just 1 block from the beautiful sand beaches in Tahoe Vista, 10 minutes to Northstar and 20 min to Squaw Valley. Walk to several local restaurants in Tahoe Vista. Up the street is the North Tahoe Regional Park with miles of Hiking,bird watching, dog-walking , and Bike trails (cross-country in winter) and there are Tennis Courts up on top of the hill. For winter skiing, it's only 10 Min to Northstar & 20 min to Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows Ski resorts.

Agatam Lodge has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, with 2 Queen bedrooms, plus our very small Bunk room, and a full bath on the entry floor, and the Master bedroom with a CA King and private bath on the upper floor. There is also an additional 1/2 bath upstairs. Our gourmet kitchen has all new appliances, gorgeous St. Cecilia granite slab counter tops and a rustic maple hardwood floor. The dining table seats six and there are three comfortable bar stools at the island counter. The interior furnishings of the house are in an updated casual Mountain Craftsman style.

In the summer we rent mostly by the week, from Sunday to Sunday, but some shorter stays are usually available. Please call for availability.

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 enjoy the gorgeous sunsets on the lake. It is a short drive to sculpture. 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.

Agatam Lodge Layout: The home layyout is a "reverse" floor plan with the open concept living area on the upper floor along with the master bedroom. The two queen bedrooms and a full bath are on the entry level.

There is a wood stove in the living area for cool nights (we do have central heating too, of course), and all of the bedrooms have cozy designer quilts and luxury bedding. We have plenty of driveway parking for ski trips and room for your boat trailer, too. There is an inside laundry room next to the first floor entry to take care of your wet snow gear or sandy towels in the summer.

About Joyce Miller,owner. We have three rental homes. Please call for availability.

My husband and I live in San Jose, and have been renting our three vacation rental homes in Tahoe since 2000. 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 Miller,owner. We have three rental homes. Please call for availability. purchased this house in 2000

Why Joyce Miller,owner. We have three rental homes. Please call for availability. chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

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

1 Block to the Beach! Great location for skiing Northstar and Squaw Valley.

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 and clean with easy trail and lake access

  • 5 of 5

The owners are wonderful! Very prompt and professional in their communications. The house is great- big garage with lots of storage for bikes, paddle boards, etc. The house is set up great with a large open living room, dining room and kitchen with a big deck just off the living/dining area. The house was very clean upon arrival and the check in instructions were spot on. The best part to us was the trail access for running with our dogs. If you walk just up the road you have access to several miles of beautiful dirt trails. Plus you're less than a block from the beach. We will certainly be staying here again.

Owner's Response: Also, for you dog owners, we are just adding a FENCED YARD on the side of our house to make it more convenient.. All three of our rental homes will now have fenced yards.

On short notice decided to go up to Tahoe over Labor Day weekend. Found this place and inquired about availability. Response within about three minutes from Joyce. From that point on we were confirmed within 10 minutes and communicated with throughout the entire process. That is just something that puts us at ease while planning a vacation. The place is well appointed throughout and clean and in a great neighborhood one block from the water. Two bedrooms+ small bonus bunkbeds downstairs with master bedroom upstairs is great for families with older children for privacy.

Wonderfully relaxing family vacation with dog

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful one week summer vacation with adult children and pup. The house was even better than described with very comfortable accommodations for three couples as well as bunk beds for children (unused by us) and a sofa bed in the living room for 2 more. The layout was great for us as the master bedroom, kitchen, and living room are upstairs with the other bedrooms one story down. Our adult kids had some privacy as did we. The deck was where we did most of our dining and gas barbecue grilling. We just loved the view of trees and birds and a slim glimpse of the lake.

The location of the house was perfect for us. It is located an easy walk, 1 "block" away from the Lake which is where all the traffic is. The actual street the house is on and all the streets around it seemed deserted to us city folk. One can walk in the middle of the street and easily get out of the way of infrequent cars. Having a dog we walked all over the place exploring both the streets and the woods that are a short ways away. It seems that the North Tahoe Regional Park is quite nearby which has everything from well groomed trails for walking and mtn. biking as well as ball fields. There were beautiful tall pines to wonder at and worry that a giant pine cone would conk you on the head. The house had two adult mtn. bikes and several kid size bikes as well as two helmets and bike pump. We enjoyed the rides but serious riders might want to bring more bikes.

The beach right across the main road was wonderful as it is a good sand beach with sandy approaches to the water. The water is quite shallow which allows for it being warmed by the sun and not as freezing as Tahoe can be in other locations. On the beach one could get catamaran sailing lessons, rent kayaks and down the road go parasailing (not this beach but not far.)

The WiFi worked great and it was a cinch to connect a computer to the widescreen tv in the living room for movie streaming via a HDMI cable which I had thought to bring. It would be a nice touch to have a HDMI cable available. There was a great selection of board games for family entertainment and a few toys for tots.

The weather was beautiful with warm days and cool nights perfect for sleeping without air conditioning. If you like the mountains, trees, birds and a great lake, you could not do better than the Agatam Lodge. I imagine with Squaw, Northstar, and Incline nearby it would be great as a ski house in the winter.

Great house! Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

My family (7 of us) really enjoyed staying at Agatam. The house was EXACTLY as described. The house was very clean (I'm a neat freak so that was VERY important). Having upstairs/downstairs was a great layout. Very spacious. The kids are already asking when we're going back! Thank you!

Great Place in Tahoe Vista

  • 5 of 5

Location/neighborhood is great (1 block from Agatam beach/Tahoe Vista restaurants - short drive from Kings Beach/Tahoe City/Squaw/Incline/etc.).

House is well furnished/equiped (games/DVD player/bikes/fuseball table/toys for kids/kitchen utensils/beach chairs), deck is awesome- includes a BBQ table/chairs/umbrellas.

Pictures of place/room on website are accurate/up to date. Not pictured is a bunk bed in a laundry room which even though the room is pretty small, it is useful if you have kids.

Owner is responsive and easy to deal with.

Very happy I found this rental and that it was available. Looking forward to an opportunity to rent the "Agatam Lodge" again and stay longer.
