Relax and entertain family and friends in this custom-built, spacious home with panoramic mountain views. This unique home is located in Alpine Meadows just minutes away from world class skiing at Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley. The home features the craftsmanship of hand-carved wood and intricate etched glass mirrors with a natural rock interior and an open, modern kitchen and adjoining great room. A comfortable Marquis hot tub nestled on the private second story deck offers some of the most breathtaking views of the surrounding Tahoe basin with its towering pines and snow capped mountains.

Alpine Mountain Retreat is located in the tranquil Alpine Meadows neighborhood, one of the best kept secrets on Lake Tahoe's North Shore. For winter sports enthusiasts, world class skiing at Alpine Meadows ski resort is just minutes up the road while Squaw Valley USA is less than 10 minutes by car. Enjoy nearby cross country skiing, sledding, or ice skating as well. Summertime is glorious in the cool alpine mountains. Numerous hiking trails, single-track mountain-bike trails, and a paved bike path along the scenic Truckee River are just out the door. Visitors may also enjoy the famous Truckee River raft float, horseback riding at nearby stables, and the water sports at Lake Tahoe. One of Tahoe's renowned restaurants and après ski hot spots, the River Ranch, is just down Alpine Meadows road with selections of other dining and nightlife options at the Village in Squaw Valley. One can venture south (just 5 miles) to Tahoe City, or North (just 8 miles) to Truckee, for a wider variety of shopping, restaurants, and entertainment.

Upon arriving at this vacation rental, take notice of the elaborate mountain setting carved into the garage doors. Alpine Mountain Retreat includes 2 garages and additional parking for 2-3 cars. Once inside, venture upward on a spiral staircase into the great room. This spacious and sunny gathering space with expansive windows and views includes the open living area, dining area, and kitchen. The living area includes a large flat screen TV with surround sound CD/DVD player, high-speed internet access, an open fireplace with plenty of wood provided, and an indoor rock fountain. The well-equipped kitchen offers a plethora of unique granite counter space and 2 separate sink areas. A large center island seats 5 and modern appliances make this kitchen a pleasurable place to prepare and enjoy any meal. The dining room table is hand carved wood, flanked by two long benches on either side, and will seat 10 guests.

Accommodations in this vacation retreat include 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, plus a sleeping den. After climbing the initial spiral staircase from the ground level, you will enter the den lit by the backdrop of etched mirrors. The den offers a comfortable twin bed and a double bed separated by the stairway. There’s room for a double futon as well. Continuing up through the great room, you will reach the third level, home to 2 loft bedrooms. Located on opposing wings of this floor, one of these bedrooms offers a queen bed and its own bath, the other has a double bed and bath located in the hall just outside of the bedroom. The fourth and upper-most level of this vacation home offers 2 stunning master suites. One bedroom includes two queen beds and a stunning mountain view. The attached master bath boasts natural stone craftsmanship and an oversized shower. From this bedroom, access the large second story deck with unparalleled views and a hot tub. The charming fourth bedroom offers an elegant hand carved king bed, high ceilings and sky lights with elaborate wooden beams, hand-etched mirrors, and yet another lavish master bath with natural stone finish work in the shower.

AMAZING HOUSE, AWESOME EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5

Hello!

I recently stayed at this rental with four other couples and we had an absolute blast. The house is beautiful, with a really modern kitchen and an awesome hot tub on the upstairs deck. The layout of the home is very unique and reminded me of a castle :D

The owner of the home was incredibly nice and was available for any questions we had! The breaker went out on the hot tub and we were able to give him a call and he answered and was instantly able to help us.

I definitely want to come back to this house and do another trip to Squaw!

AMAZING EXPERIENCE!

Ski weekend and family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a fantastic weekend with family. We really enjoyed this home when we weren't playing in the snow. The neighborhood is quiet, the area is beautiful, and the house offered more than we were expecting. The owner was very responsive and the house was clean/stocked on arrival. The kitchen is very well equipped for any meal and for any size of family. We had 13 people in the home and making large meals was no problem. Everyone had their private space when needed, but the main floor was large enough for all to gather and enjoy. Wonderful place overall, and very highly recommended.

Only additional comments I would make about the physical space is that the home is built into the mountain, with 4 or 5 tiered levels of home. There are stairs to climb, so be aware of that when considering. Also, if you have young children who don't quite have their balance perfected yet be aware that the home has stairs and sharp tables, corners, etc. We had a young one and just had to pay extra attention. No problems at all. The home is a mountain retreat, so we were expecting some hazards:)

Christmas to New Years family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Our family of ten loved this house for many reasons.........the spacious and sunny great room accommodated a variety of activities, the fully supplied kitchen delighted several cooks in our group, the practical entry level with space for shedding and storing snow gear, the bedroom with the 'nest' at the top of the spiral stairs, and finally the nice choice of games and puzzles. We were a very happy group. Nice temperatures and lots of sunshine also helped. Thanks Alez and Rhonda!

Waterfall on Rock Fireplace

  • 5 of 5

This place is stunning. The main level is a large open design, perfect for hanging out with a large group. Big stone fireplace, with a freaking water fall coming off it, no joke, a waterfall in the middle of the living room. There were 10 of us and we all slept comfortably. Well appointed kitchen, good sound system, this place has it all.

Oh yeah, and the owners are very responsive to communication!

If there was a 6th star, this place would get it!

Lovely Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of fourteen (sixteen if you count the pups!) recently enjoyed a long weekend in this lovely chalet at Alpine Meadows. We enjoyed quiet evenings on the two decks, the hot tub, cooking our meals in the gourmet kitchen, and relaxing and lounging in the beautiful family room. There were enough beds to suit us all including a bed for on of our four legged guests. Everything was perfect, from the weather to the gorgeous mountain setting, to the lovely responses and emails from our hosts. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation. Conveniently located and close to Truckee as well as Tahoe, we would highly recommend this home for a fantastic getaway.

Great accommodation in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a long weekend in this wonderful house - 8 adults and 6 teens - and everyone loved it. The living area is spacious and light with enough seating for all and the deck is also well equipped with chairs, table and sun shades to enjoy a cocktail on whilst watching the sun set. The kitchen is a pleasure to cook in - it's very well equipped - and there is also a gas bbq for grilling. It was a bonus to have a bathroom for each family and the adults all had their own bedrooms whilst the kids slept in the den. The location is ideal - we went rafting on the Truckee river, hiked Alpine Meadows, went horse back riding at the stables 2 minutes away - there is so much to do we wished we had stayed longer.

Alex was a pleasure to work with which is a huge plus when booking through VRBO. It was also a big plus for us that we could take 2 dogs with us.

We would all highly recommend this property for large parties - it was reasonably priced and the tips on keeping down cleaning costs (such as using your own linen and towels and removing your own trash) were much appreciated. We will definitely stay here again - for skiing or for summer fun.
