Overview

Kirkwood House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 11-14)

Mountains Majesty house is in a great location for skiers and non skiers. We are a five minute walk or free shuttle ride to the lifts for skiers or boarders. Cross country skiing begins in the meadows across the street. The hill behind the house provides fun sled runs. You can also enjoy staying warm inside, watching the skiers from the living room, and meeting up for lunch and dinner. We have a gas powered fireplace in front of a soft carpet for playing games or reading. In the warmer weather Kirkwood is your peaceful getaway for hiking, mountain & road biking, fishing, boating and exploring the Sierras. Our house is also a great choice for business retreats and housing the wedding party for celebrations at Kirkwood.

With 2700SF and five bedrooms on two floors, the house easily fits multiple families, a really large family, or friendly groups of adults. Each bedroom is named for a famous mountain, and furnished with fresh sheets and new mattresses, and a bed suitable for adults. The great room brings people together with a warm gas fireplace, and mountain views through a wall of windows reaching 20 feet high.

The kitchen will make eating with your group fun and easy. It has yards of counter space. The appliances are new with a Kitchen Aid fridge, Jennair gas stove, Cuisinart coffee maker, a toaster oven, rice cooker and a blender. We even have a spice rack. The kitchen accommodates a crowd. The dining table seats 8-10 with room for four more at the bar.

The house is well setup for kids with sturdy furniture, and few knickknacks. There are two rooms with multiple beds. We have games, books and a TV/Blu-ray DVD with Netflix streaming access.

Kirkwood is a great resort location with something for everyone. In the winter Kirkwood has the best downhill and cross-country skiing with average snowfall of 50 feet - much more than the other Lake Tahoe ski resorts. There is easy access for sledding, snowshoeing and other snow activities. There are recreation facilities just steps from the front door: tennis, basketball, and a children's playground.

We hope you will enjoy your time in our beautiful house, Mountains Majesty.

About Adam

We live in the Bay Area with our energetic twin daughters. Adam is an avid skier, and Erica likes how the convenient location makes it easy to take a break or include friends and family.

Adam purchased this house in 2010

Why Adam chose Kirkwood

As our daughters started to enjoy skiing we wanted a place to stay with reliable snow so they could ski as much as possible. Kirkwood has a friendly and sincere feel of genuine people who enjoy the mountains.

What makes this house unique

The house is also a gem in the summer with the nearby pool and tennis courts. It is also a relatively short drive to caves, mines, and lakes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I can’t tell you how much your home and all its amenities contributed to a truly fantastic week together. Your attention to detail and concern for our comfort was extraordinary and we sincerely thank you for such a wonderful experience.

Great Ski House

  • 5 of 5

This is the third year in a row we have stayed here and plan to be back next year. We are four families with small children coming from all over the country. Plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably. Toys and sleds for after skiing fun as well. Living room area is perfect for adults to relax after kids are in bed with nice views of the mountain. Location is great, the shuttle comes within minutes of calling right to your doorstep and drops off at beginner area as well as expert lifts. Kitchen is stocked with everything you need to cook all your meals. The owners are great to deal with and very responsive to all our requests. Highly recommend this house!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We brought a group of 13 to this home. 3 children, 3 teens, 5 adults, and 2 grandparents. Here is what we found:

* A great kitchen ... big pots and pans, lots of silverware and flatware, up to 4 people working at the same time with no problem

* Easy sleeping in comfortable beds. All 3 couples got their own bedroom.

* 3 full bathrooms ... after skiing one day, 8 people took showers in the span of 30 minutes and the water was still hot.

* Space ... we never felt like we were crowded or stepping over one another.

If you are looking for a large - really nice place - right on the slopes - this it it

  • 5 of 5

We had family from three cities meet at Mountain Majesty. There was plenty of room for nine of us. This home is first rate. The views are incredible and the access to the mountian is sweet. We had five feet of snow fall during the three days we stayed. Driveway was regularly plowed so getting in and out was no problem. I would highly recommend this place to groups or familys looking for a modern, comfortable retreat. Also - the owners were great. I left my wedding ring and they had their housekeeper return it to me safely. Still married.
