About the property

3 Bedroom, 3 Bath with Lake & Mountain Views Close to Beach

Pamper yourself with a stay in this one-of-a-kind quiet escape at Lake Tahoe! Home was just finished with construction March 2017. Perfect family summer Lake House.

Home is within walking distance to Regan Beach and Lakeview Commons! Backs directly onto California Conservancy’s Barton Meadow, a perfect backdrop which features 500 acres of greenbelt and trails for walks, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and watching the incomparable Tahoe sunsets.

Tahoe Got So Much Snow this Winter, You Can Ski All Summer!! Lake Tahoe really is the place where you can water ski and snow ski in the same day. This summer you will be able to ski in the morning and then come back for an après BBQ - you’ll have to work for your runs in the backcountry though ;)

This Mountain Modern home was built where the original settlement of "Rowlands" existed before there was a South Lake Tahoe. This is the newest home in the exclusive Bellevue development.

** Professionally cleaned and stocked with shampoo, soap, quality towels and linens for each booking. We provide enough towels(beach towels too!) and linens for the amount of guests that are booked to stay with you :) **

Exceptional and breathtaking breathtaking home tucked away in a wooded neighborhood yet just 2.5 miles to Heavenly Ski Resort. Beautifully decorated with high-end finishes and features large windows and outdoor living area to take in the tranquil Lake Tahoe and Mt Tallac views with wildlife who wander by regularly!

The perfect starting and ending point for your South Lake Tahoe mountain adventures. You will be close to Ski Resort, sledding & the Casinos while taking in breathtaking views. This is the Perfect Skiers & Boarders homebase or Winter Adventurers basecamp.

Wet boots and gloves from a long day on the slopes? No problem, we have a handy boot and glove dryer for you to use in the foyer!

Guest access

You have private entrance and will have a completely private stay and use of the entire second story guest house.

Code for door will be in the initial email Airbnb sends you when you book along with easy driving directions.

In your reservation itinerary provided by Airbnb (via the airbnb app) you can auto-connect to WiFi by clicking on "more info" next to WiFi.

Interaction with guests

Only as much as needed by guests. I do enjoy sharing knowledge, insights and favorite spots with visitors. Feel free to text me with your questions about the area and attractions. I want you to feel like you already have a friend in Tahoe!

The neighborhood

Our neighborhood is the best place to be anywhere at the Lake if you like summer or winter activities! You are able to walk to bike, kayak and SUP rentals as well as several places to eat and shop.

One of the only neighborhoods in Tahoe that has walking access to 3 beaches. (El Dorado, Regan, and "Secrets" beach is close by)

The BEST neighborhood for cruiser bikes. Rent a bike (just down the street) for your stay and leave the car parked for the duration!

Just down the street at the Lakeview Commons you can enjoy the Wednesday night Paddle board races and Thursday nights "Live at Lakeview" music series with lots of good food and vendors.

Lakeview Commons turns into a popular sledding hill for locals in the winter. You can sled and tube right to the icy shores of the Lake so don't forget the the hand warmers!

Walk right to a California Conservancy Nature Trail and secluded beach.

Getting around

Very close access to Bus routes and walking distance to many stores, restaurants and visitor center. Easy access to ski slopes via BluGo or simply walk 1 minute to the beach. Or better yet, rent a bike from the shop down the street and bike around town!

There is a public parking lot at entrance to neighborhood (entrance at San Jose / Riverside Ave) where you can park car and then take ski shuttle or buses throughout town.

Other things to note

Host lives in main home above guest house but will not disrupt your stay or interact with you or your guests unless there is an emergency.

The Garage is used for owners' cars only.

In the winter you are just a few minutes drive to the lifts and in the summer you can walk to the beach and paddle board drop-in location. There are bike rental and Paddle Board rental shops just a blocks away.

We will get back you QUICK for booking requests, we will not make you wait 12 hours to hear from us :)

About Eric Barstad

We have lived in South Lake Tahoe for 20+ years. Tracy and I enjoy the outdoor recreational opportunities of Tahoe, summer and winter. We just finished building our dream Mountain Modern home and we hope you love the guest unit and feel at home here.

We want you to have a wonderful stay in either our Lake Tahoe home or our Modern Mountain Guest apartment and will do our best as hosts to make that happen. We provide a detailed home manual prior to your arrival, which includes hot spots, local attractions, transportation guidelines etc. We are helpful, responsive and happy to host new families.

Eric Barstad purchased this guest house in 2016

Why Eric Barstad chose Al Tahoe

We built this home because we had the opportunity to purchase a once in a lifetime piece of property. The property is part of an old legacy piece of land that the historic town of Rowlands was settled on. Rowlands was the original settlement before there was a "South Lake Tahoe". Also, the original town's road goes right through our backyard!

What makes this guest house unique

The views speak for themselves!

Beautiful property to rent. We rented both the upstairs and downstairs unit and it wasn’t great for a multi-generation family trip. Being essentially in 1 house made family time and the convenience so easy. The property location is nice and quiet and short walk from the lake. The owners were on the top unit but you’d never even know they were there. All the amenties were great. Theres only 1 Parking appt on site but if you have more than 1 car, it’s born too far of a walk to park it.
