You'll have access to a homeowners parking lot that will allow you to park directly across from the ski lift if you choose to drive. Spectator ? There is a warming hut at the lift that serves refreshments and BBQ lunches with seating that is the perfect venue for watching skiers without participating. Plus, lift tickets and season passes are interchangeable at Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows! Take advantage of the free shuttle service to and from both resorts from the front side of Alpine Meadows.

When the snow melts, the surroundings become a playground to hike, bike, and fish. Tennis lovers can enjoy the homeowner tennis and pickleball court, golf lovers can enjoy the multitude of golf courses within a ten mile radius, beaches and picnic areas are within biking distance to the house. There are a ton of hiking trails just out the back door, and a great fishing creek just down the street from the home. The activities in the Tahoe Basin are endless. Located on the West shore of Tahoe City, you are minutes to the Lake and restaurants, and close to Chambers Landing and Meeks Bay with great sandy beaches, BBQ grills, incredible views, and a day full of bliss.

The house is chalet-style and has an open floor plan that can accommodate your family and friends well. The 22 foot cathedral ceilings, and floor to ceiling windows, with expansive wrap around deck offer a great house to enjoy the spectacular views from. With 2 sliding glass doors, the sunny deck becomes an extension of the great room with lots of patio furniture, BBQ, and privacy. There is a large 2 car garage with extra parking, and 40 foot enclosed walkway for easy access to your cars in the wintertime.

As you walk in the front door, you are greeted by a Spanish tile hallway leading to 3 bedrooms. There are 2 bedrooms with queen beds, each with a TV, sliding glass door that exits out to a deck. Here you can enjoy a hot tub with the views of Twin Peaks. In the wintertime, you can watch skiers short cut home from Alpine Meadows through the front yard, and in the summertime you can watch squirrels climb the trees. Down the hall is laundry home, full bath, sauna area and another bedroom with queen bed,TV and twin. The sauna is the size of one you'd have a gym: 2 levels with enough room to spread out in. Next to the sauna is a changing area and with a 'Finnish' touch. Cool off in the shower room with four shower heads and glass atrium that looks out into the forest. It's a great way to end a non stop day. The changing area is also connected to a full bathroom. There are bathrobes some in bedrooms and changing area for your use during your stay here.

The second level is the Great Room and that it is. With 22 foot cathedral ceilings with floor to ceiling windows you won't be able to keep your eyes off the beautiful views of Twin Peaks . Bring your binoculars to view the occasional extreme skiers who will snow mobile up the mountain range and ski down, and the incredible sights of wildlife year around. Two sliding glass doors exit out to a sunny wrap around deck with a barbecue, and patio furniture which is used in summer and winter. This level has the kitchen, living area and dining area all looking out to the views. The granite countertop kitchen is fully stocked and overlooks the living and dining area. The living area has a leather sectional and faces a large stone fireplace and 55" HDTV. The crackling sound of wood burning is a treat. The dining area is 1/2 nook with pillows, bench and chairs. You can eat here, or relax here. It all faces an entertainment center with TV. DVD, stereo, and some games. From all areas in the main area, you can watch TV, enjoy the fireplace and views, or socialize with the rest of your group.

Off the living area is another full bath attached to a bedroom with queen bed and TV. Next to that room is the Master Bedroom. There is a King-size sleigh bed with TV, half bath off a changing area, and walk in closet. Indirect lighting and views of the forest make this room a bonus. Up the stairs from the living area, is a loft with pool table, TV, and two twin beds. The loft is private from downstairs and you can play pool during the day, and use the room for sleeping at night. Kids love it here.

Because Lake Tahoe's motto is just 'play hard' extra attention has been given to a great bed and a good nights sleep. All the bedding is Hotel Style with memory foam mattress pad, luxury 300 count sheets, 4 down or down alternative pillows, duvet, and bed throw. You'll feel like you're in an upscale hotel.

There is wireless internet, 7 TV's on DISH 3 DVD players, 2 iPods docks, and 2 stereo's, washer and dryer, as well as upgraded towels, and extra niceties to make your stay enjoyable. When you arrive at the house, all beds are made, towels hung, and coffee service is provided for your first morning. The furnishings are user friendly with plenty of seating for your family and friends. High ceilings with large wooden beams, triangle shaped windows, and mountain decor compliment the 'Tahoe' feeling. The location and amenities of this home makes this a great vacation home year-round.

Booking online is convenient but there is nothing like talking with the Owner for questions on the house, and the Lake Tahoe basin. I welcome calls. 858-229-6608

About Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe has been my playground for 20 years. With all the traveling I’ve done, there is nothing compared to the amenities and beauty the Tahoe basin has to offer. I purchased my first home here in 1992 and decided to share it with others when not in use. I now have many 5 and 6 bedrooms homes I offer for your enjoyment. Each have hot tubs, most with pool tables and in locations that allows easy access to the Lake and Ski resorts. They were purchased for vacation rentals and are designed to be user friendly with all the amenities of home. I have a full time staff that includes cleaning, maintenance and will respond within 24 hours for all your needs. Feel free to call me about my other homes, or to just to discuss the perfect ski run on the perfect day.

Lake Tahoe purchased this house in 1994

Why Lake Tahoe chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

The house is centrally located on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe, close to all.Lake Tahoe is unparalleled to any other destination I've been to in the world. The skiing in the wintertime is suburb, the beaches at the Lake in the summertime is liked being in Hawaii. White sand and crystal blue water. The weather is perfect and conducive to doing anything you want outdoors, year-around..

What makes this house unique

The location and privacy. Homeowners and their guests have access to a private parking lot right across the street from the Sherwood lift at Alpine Meadows. You can walk there from the house, or park there and hop on the lift! There is also a warming hut by the lift that serves BBQ, hot chocolate, beer, etc and lots of chairs.

I like both seasons. The skiing speaks for itself, but in the summertime there are tons on trails to explore around the house. Page Meadows is a popular trail system located a block away. The house is just up from the Lake at Sunnyside Resort which has a great restaurant with huge deck on piers right on the lake. You can spend all day here watching the wooden boats come in for a beverage or dining. You can access the bike path here and ride to River Ranch which is a beautiful ride along the Truckee River. Once you get to River Ranch, you can enjoy another great deck for dining while watching the river rafters come in. Rafting is a fun thing to do also.

Tahoe City has lots of restaurants and shops to enjoy. There is always something going on there to add to a weekend.

Even though there are tons of things to visit in Lake Tahoe, I totally enjoyed just hanging out in the house and on the deck. You really feel away from it all, but are close to everything. Plus...the views from this house are incredible.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fantastic house with Fantastic views…

Our visit was in May 2014. My husband and I and four other couples had just finished a bus tour which ended in Lake Tahoe and were looking for some down time together. We picked your house and were very pleased. It had the WOW! factor. It was even better than the pictures. The view from the front of the house looking across the valley and mountains was stunning! The many bedrooms suited everyone very well. We could all spread out and not get in each others' way. Several of us would sit out on the deck as the sun came up over the mountain, drink our morning coffee, and enjoy the tranquil beauty. The house had everything we needed and the sauna and hot tub were nice perks. Sandy gave us the names of some very good restaurants nearby and places to visit. Your directions to the the different spots were very helpful and we found many incredible places we couldn't have found without your help. We had never seen anything as beautiful as Emerald Bay. The East shore was great to see with many beaches to take our dog. We had a great stay at your house thanks for all your help.

i'd re-rent this house in a heartbeat

  • 5 of 5

i am purposefully not re-reading any of the prior reviews - so that i am not biased. {you might be reading the same info. but please consider it 'fresh'.} we are a family of 8 (with 3 teens) - and were in this house for a week late March. The 3 standouts from our time: 1) the view is wonderful from the living and dining area - and there are wrap around windows so that you can see all; 2) the kitchen has grantie countertops 3) It was clean. The beds are quite comfortable; linens are great. Kitchen is well-stocked with cookware. Big TV with ### stations for the down time. There is lots of space on deck for folks to spread out and relax. A pretty fireplace too - used often. Other things that made life easy - washer and dryer in the house itself; lots of parking. Sandy could not be nicer - and wants to make sure all renters are happy. It was a great trip and great experience.

Wonderful rental

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful, clean and well maintained. Booking was easy. Owner supplied good instructions on entry, amenities, etc. The property is within easy walking distance to the ski lift. Kitchen has all the housewares necessary for cooking/having dinner in. Sunnyside restaurant was a short drive and had excellent food. Our family of 12 fit well. Six bedrooms, each with comfortable beds and TV's. We visited in early February for a wedding held on the mountain at Alpine Meadows. View was spectacular. Overall - good quality. I recommend this property to anyone wanting a mountain vacation.

Amazing Chalet w/Unbeatable Views!

  • 5 of 5

This property was truly an amazing place to stay! We spent the weekend at this home to celebrate an early Thanksgiving with family, and couldn't have been happier. The home sits just a few miles from downtown Tahoe City, and is set up on a hill that gives you privacy, parking, and one-of-a kind views .From the back deck and hot-tub you can see a Twin Peaks mountain range- truly unbeatable. The house is also set up well inside and was perfect for our group. Each bedroom gives you privacy, and the living area and kitchen are nice and open which was perfect for cooking and playing games together. The kitchen is stocked with all the essentials you would need to make a meal (pots, pans, utensils, spices, coffee maker, blender, etc). The grocery store in town is also only a few minutes away if you need to stock up on any essentials. You can tell the owners care about their guests and want to make each stay perfect. There was a bottle of wine and chocolates left for us upon arrival, as well as detailed instructions on how to operate or where to find almost anything you could think of. The check-in process and rental process were seamless and the property was definitely as advertised. Little touches like that set this property above the rest, and we definitely hope to return to the chalet in the future!

Family Time in Tahoe City

  • 5 of 5

My family, 8 adults and 3 children, spent last week at Sandy’s House in Tahoe City. Everyone agrees that the house was perfect for such a large group. It is as advertised, clean with many upgrades. Although it is in a neighborhood, you only see 1 house and the large lots allows for privacy in a mountain setting. The kids spent a lot of time playing in the snow. A great sledding hill right next to the house. The grandparents and parents explored the mountain passes surrounding the area. We found great walking trials and it was amazing with the fresh snow. You have a beautiful house Sandy and thank you for your attentive support while we were there.

Pre-Thanksgiving weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect house for our annual Thanksgiving dinner with a large group of friends! The open living space with kitchen, living room and a large deck was great for spending time together. More than enough beds and baths to give people their privacy. We didn't make use of all of the amenities - though the sauna was great, we should have used the hot tub too. We would come back again.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed the house. The sauna is a plus, but the combination of the sauna and hot tub is really a treat. BTW: a brand new hot tub with many jets was delivered last week. Hope next time your group visits you can enjoy it.

Tailgate with a view.

  • 5 of 5

Myself and a few friends stayed here over the weekend to watch football and the World Series. We enjoyed the house.

It was snowing all weekend and we used the hot tub often. Not having to walk outside in the snow was a real plus.

My group has stayed at other VRBO homes and the rooms aren’t overly large, but definitely enough room for our 8 guys to cook, and watch TV. Views were distracting from staying focused on the games.

It was good to have separate levels. 2 guys that snored slept in the loft and no one heard them.

The ski lift at Alpine Meadows is up the street, and our group plans on retuning for skiing and watching the Superbowl in Feb.

Located in one of the most desired neighborhoods on the North Shore, you are walking distance to the back side of Alpine Meadows with privileges. There is a private parking pass that will allow you to park right at the Sherwood lift, a quad high speed chair, and get on! Alpine Meadows allows the homeowners living in this neighborhood and/or guests to start here without at ticket and ski to the front side to purchase it. And, the homeowners have their own snow grader which purposely leaves enough snow along the roads so you can ski home if you want to leave your group. Don't ski? Enjoy the hut at the lift for morning coffee, lunch, or just watching all the activity on the hill. In the summertime, the cat tracks become a playground for mountain biking and hiking. Endless trails with Lake views and wildflowers will keep you entertained.

The snow melts into Ward Creek which is easily accessed from the house, known for its trout fishing. Tennis? yep...1 homeowner tennis court are here for your use.

Ward Valley is known for its peaceful setting of houses divided by forest land and views that are breathless. Just up from the Lake at Sunnyside Resort, you have total peace at the house, and 3 miles away you're at the Lake with shops, restaurants, nightlife, and an array of activities. Tahoe City is the city to be in on the North Shore. With Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley, and Homewood at your doorstep, you won't be able to ski a run twice. The winter months is a haven for skiing, snow boarding snow snowmobiling. cross county skiing, and with its backdrop the Lake.. you can't beat the experience.

Summer is as good as the winter. The Truckee River opens its doors to the melting snow which offers a nice river for rafting. You can pick up your raft in Tahoe City and cruise down to River Ranch. Its mild enough for the whole family. At River Ranch there is a large outdoor deck with BBQ, outdoor bars, and a great spot to watch the rafters come it. Raft 1 day, bike another. You can access the bike path from the house that will meander along the Truckee River to Truckee. River Ranch is a 1/3 way point.

Tahoe City boasts Commons Beach, but some of the best beaches on the Lake are found on the West Shore. Meeks Bay has a beach that will remind you of being in a cove somewhere in Hawaii but with mountains. Pristine, crystal clear blue water, white sand beach, smell of tall pines, views of mountains. Its a wonderful setting for a picnic. Chambers Landing is known for the long pier/dock with bar and restaurant at the end of it. This is where all the great wooden boats eventually stop at for a refreshment. The beach is beautiful here, and the entertainment remember able. Can't beat the lakefront restaurants. West Shore Cafe has dining on their pier, with large deck, outdoor bars, and incredible food. 3 miles from the house is Sunnyside Resort with outdoor deck, boat rentals, pier and definitely an afternoon libation. You'll find a multitude of lake front venues in downtown Tahoe City.

Lake Tahoe is truly a special place, and this is a special house to enjoy it in.
