About the property

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 up to date with a Kitchen Aid fridge, Jennair gas stove, Cuisinart coffee maker, a toaster oven, rice cooker and a blender. We have a spice rack and we keep the kitchen stocked with decent pots, lots of plates and silverware, and the basics you want like tin foil and disposable food storage bins. 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 Juniper Ridge

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 tennis courts and playground. 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.

Very comfortable and beautiful home. Room for many, our family was very comfortable, including children who were happy to watch movies, play games and hike around the area.

Well stocked kitchen, bathrooms, linen, we did not need or want anything else. This is your spot!!!

Owner was very accommodating and responsive via email.

We will definitely recommend this property to friends, and if returning to Kirkwood, will stay here again.

Great cabin & location

  • 5 of 5

If you want to spend a weekend at Kirkwood, this is the place to stay. We had a small work team outing on the mountain for the weekend and we absolutely loved this cabin. Plenty of space, great & well labeled kitchen, fantastic location, and the owners were a breeze to work with.

Highly recommended.

Fabulous! Owner, house, kitchen, and amenities all exceeded our expectations. I echo all the positive comments below. We especially appreciated the kitchen and complete set of utensils, etc. The location is so convenient for skiing and yet away from the hustle and bustle of the crowds/cars.

Looking forward to next year.
