~Lots of new snow and the skiing and snowboarding is great! See the pictures for a picture taken from the house 3/14/18 with all the beautful new snow in the Jeffrey Pines that surround the house. Diamond Peak's last day is April 15 but Mount Rose will stay open until the end of April and Squaw Valley / Alpine Meadows plans to stay open through Memorial Day.
This is a recently updated 3 level private mountain home with views of beautiful Lake Tahoe, which is only 2.5 miles away. I've added a POOL TABLE, a PRIVATE HOT TUB, 2 more Smart TVs, a pack n' play crib and portable high chair, and a third video game console with games (I now have Ps3, Xbox 360, and Nintendo Wii). 2300 square feet of interior space makes it roomy.
This is a freestanding private home in a private cul-de-sac on a forested mountain slope. You are surrounded by nature!
Potty trained dogs may be approved. Dog fees are $15 per dog per night + $200 increased dog deposit.
There are outdoor decks on all 3 floors. Barbecue on the Weber propane grill and you can dine out on the massive middle floor wraparound deck. Enjoy the PRIVATE HOT TUB on the bottom floor deck under the cover of the middle floor deck - the hot tub is awesome when it snows!
The house sleeps up to 10 in 7 beds and offers tons of fun for the whole family.
Shoot some pool in the new and improved game room. The house has Charter HD cable TV service for the two big screen home theaters, and high speed cable internet with WIFI. Use Netflix or Amazon prime service for unlimited streaming high definition movies in surround sound to either of the home theaters in the house. Also, two of the bedrooms have new 43" high definition TVs that also stream movies or any other internet content (these two TVs aren't connected to cable).
The middle floor - mountain living with nature! The entry is to the middle floor - the main living area plus a kitchen featuring granite counters and all the amenities for preparing gourmet meals. New range and refrigerator added Winter 2017. The adjacent great room has a hardwood floor and a dining area that can seat eight (9 is possible), a lovely stone hearth with a gas stove with a remote and thermostat (a cozy fire at the push of a button with no need to carry wood), a living area with a huge sectional couch and matching overstuffed chair and a home theater featuring a 55 inch Visio LCD High Definition TV, Stereo with Denon surround sound speaker system with subwoofer, Playstation 3 gaming system (with Move controllers and lots of games) and blue ray DVD player. There is a half bathroom on this middle floor and access to the garage. The interior was recently painted and redecorated with a "Tahoe Lodge" theme that is very charming.
The middle floor has a massive wraparound deck for dining outdoors in summer, lounging, sunbathing, stargazing, and enjoying the beautiful views. The deck has a picnic table and patio furniture in summer, and a Weber propane grill that can be used year round. There are some filtered views of Lake Tahoe (through the pines) from the middle floor great room and deck.
This is not a rustic vacation rental, this is a luxurious functioning home with all the amenities.
The bottom floor features two bedrooms, one with a California king bed, new 43" TV for watching movies and other streamed content, and its own private deck with the private hot tub and a tiny peek of Lake Tahoe through the trees, the other bottom floor bedroom has a lodgepole queen bed and twin over twin bunk bed. There are some kids books and toys too, but this room is also fine for adults of course. There is a full bathroom on this floor and a separate laundry room with washer and dryer, etc.
The bottom floor also has a huge (approximately 20' x 20') extra bedroom/office/home theater with two twin beds (one rolls under the other to make more space) and a couch. This is the 4th "bedroom" - it has a armoire for your hanging and folding clothes rather than a closet and a dresser. This large room also has a Pool Table, a large L shaped desk to work at, stereo, 50 inch Samsung High Definition TV with DVD/VCR and Cable TV service, Xbox 360, and Nintendo Wii.
The top floor master suite has amazing views of Lake Tahoe! The huge master suite occupies the entire third floor and is very private, with a huge bedroom with queen bed, private deck, step down to a side room which is now equipped with a gym quality treadmill and recumbent lifecycle exercise bike (exercise equipment not pictured), full bathroom with jetted jacuzzi tub, separate his and hers vanity, and walk in closet. The best views of Lake Tahoe can be enjoyed from the entry of this room from the top of the stairs since it sits above most of the treetops.
$45,000 improvements made October 2016:
1) New Azek (Trex type but better) decking with invisible fasteners. No warping wood, no nail heads, it is gorgeous and totally smooth!
2) New rails with nearly invisible cables between the posts let the amazing views through.
*The new rails and decks are in most but not all of the pictures*
We have a whole house automatic natural gas powered emergency generator. If there is a power outage, you'll never even notice.
This was once my home, I still visit often, and I want my guests to feel at home - which means that you will find a lot more than the usual vacation rental basic supplies. Feel free to use whatever condiments, spices, and sundries that are here.
No smoking indoors.
This is a gorgeous house in an idyllic natural setting at the #1 destination in the USA and you will make wonderful and lasting memories here!
Childcare services are available 24/7 at a facility in a home that is a short walk from this property. Google Daisy Day Care Incline Village.
More world class ski resorts are clustered around Lake Tahoe than anywhere in the world.
If you ski or snowboard - be sure to visit Diamond Peak in Incline Village - only 3.5 miles from this house. It offers the best views of Lake Tahoe from any ski resort and among its lifts is a high speed quad chair that whisks you to the top in minutes. The daily lift tickets are also about 30-40% less than you will pay at Heavenly Valley, Squaw Valley, Northstar Resort, etc. See my facebook business page for tahoelodgingonline; for spectacular photos - please like us.
Mount Rose Ski Tahoe is 10 minutes away on the way to Reno and is a favorite of Reno residents who do not know that Diamond Peak is a better resort. :) Northstar Resort is about a 20 minute drive toward Truckee and in addition to great skiing they offer Ice Skating and lots of nice restaurants in their village including Micuni Sushi and the Chocolate Bar. Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley, site of the winter Olympic Games, are 45-50 minutes away.
Incline Village is home to some of the wealthiest people in the world, and no wonder. It is an pristine natural alpine paradise located on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe, the most beautiful place in the world. The elevation at Lake Tahoe is about 6200 feet, this house is at about 7000 feet, and the surrounding mountain peaks exceed 10,000 feet, which makes for abundant snow, skiing and all winter sports in winter, and mild temperatures averaging in the low eighties in summer.
RENO (AP) — Lake Tahoe ranks first in the nation among choice vacation destinations newly ranked by a major travel website. The independent worldwide travel source put Lake Tahoe atop the list of its first Choice Destinations Awards, based on the opinions of millions of travelers.
Lake Tahoe is the largest alpine lake in North American and is approximately 22 miles long and 10 miles wide and is over a thousand feet deep. It contains more than 30 trillion gallons of water - enough fresh, crystal clear water to cover the state of California to shin depth.
Only Incline Beach homeowners and our houseguests are allowed access to our 2 pristine beaches, each of which has a bar and grill. You can launch boats at the ramp at Ski Beach which gets much less traffic than public Sand Harbor. You can rent Stand Up Paddeboards at Burnt Cedar Beach and see the bottom until it is almost 100 feet deep! See my facebook page tahoelodgingonline for photos of the private beaches and amenities you'll get to enjoy as my guests.

About Trevor Alt
My name is Trevor Alt and I am a 49 year old fireman, married with 4 teenagers. I practiced law in California for 10 years and still hold an inactive membership to the California Bar, but I have made my living as a firefighter for the Reno Fire Department for 14 years, a second career that I love. I am a fitness and health nut and I exercise religiously. The better to drag you out of a burning building with, my dear. I enjoy water and snow skiing, cycling, and have completed an xterrra sprint triatholon and a half marathon. This home has been in my family since 1985. I purchased it from my parents in 2007, lived in the home until 2011, and will move back in with my wife when our children are all in college. We now live an hour away in Sparks, Nevada.
Trevor Alt purchased this House in 2007
Why Trevor Alt chose Incline Village
This is the most beautiful place in the world. I love to cycle, hike, and play golf, all of which are world class here. A very challenging bike ride is from my house to the pass on the Mount Rose Highway on the way to Reno, which is about 9,500 feet elevation. I've hit 45 m.p.h. on the way back down and enjoyed breaktaking views of Lake Tahoe. A 12 mile round trip hike I did with my wife in summer starts at that pass and goes to the summit of Mount Rose. Amazing hike. 3 times I have ridden my road bike 72 miles around Lake Tahoe which is America's most beautiful ride. The Flume trail is rated one of the top 5 mountain bike rides in the world and ends (or begins) in Incline Village at the old Ponderosa Ranch (where the TV series "Bonanza" was filmed), about 5 miles from my house. If you mountain bike, I suggest the challenging hike from Spooner State Park to Marlette Lake, we enjoyed that one a few summers ago. Pack a lunch. Even cozy Incline Village sees its share of tourist traffic in summer, but this home is about a mile away from the center of town. This house is on a quiet cul-de-sac on a forested slope looking down over the lake. Lake Tahoe is my favorite place to visit any time of the year. I commuted to work at the Reno firehouses from this home for years but even now when I first see Lake Tahoe from the Mount Rose Highway it always takes my breath away. A few years ago in early June I drove from Reno and saw people sledding in the snow that lingered just off the Mount Rose Highway and the same afternoon I swam in Lake Tahoe and the pool at Burnt Cedar Beach, one of Incline Village's private beach facilities. At the time I first moved here in 2001, I was an avid golfer with a single digit handicap index. I love Incline Village's golf courses which are Robert Trent Jones designs. When I had my driver working for me, I could hit balls over the netting at the back of the range. See my facebook page www.facebook.com/tahoelodgingonlingonline.
What makes this House unique
I take a moment each day I spend here to enjoy the gorgeous views of Lake Tahoe from the entry to the master bedroom. I love Incline Village's Championship golf course, nearby snow skiing, boating and wakeboarding, and Incline Village's private beaches. There are more worthwhile outdoor activities do in this area than I'll be able to do in my lifetime. The location is serene and the natural beauty of the surroundings are awe inspiring. I love sitting out on the deck at night stargazing. Thousands of stars are visible due to the elevation and lack of city lights. I've made it so there's plenty to do if you just want to hang around the house and relax. Pool Table! There are 2 big screen HDTVs with Cable TV in HD, Netflix, and Amazon Prime. Sony Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii, and Xbox 360 are great fun - I have all 3! I also have board games and love to read, so you will find at least a hundred books. I now have a heated paver driveway that will automatically melt snow, an automatic whole house generator (no power losses in storms), and a gas fired stove with a remote control has replaced the unreliable pellet stove. New decks and rails! The Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort Casino is only 3 miles away. Lake Tahoe is a year round destination. The hot tub feels great after playing in the snow. In summer when it may reach 100 degrees F in Reno/Sparks, where I live and work, I can drive up to this house and it will be in the low to mid 80s. My favorite beach in the world is Incline Village's Burnt Cedar Beach, which has a lifeguarded swimming area and a lakeside lifeguarded Olympic size pool. Both beaches are closed to the public but you get access as my guest for a small daily fee. For 2017 it was $12 for adults and $4 for kids 17 and under. Golf doesn't get more fun that it is at Lake Tahoe. The ball flies a club farther and curves less because the air is thinner at 7,000 feet up. Hit it long and straight!

Well maintained house with everything we needed
My husband, our two kids and myself really enjoyed this house. We loved the hot tub and pool table. Drive to the cabin has stunning views of Lake Tahoe and minutes away from Diamond Peak and Mt. Rose. Would highly recommend!
very relaxing and just what my family needed
Loved the location and room to roam. Even though we didn't have but four people, it was great fun. The only down side was you had an asteroids game in the game room which we were not ever able to get working. However, having all the sledding equipment at the house was great and allowed us to simply stop off on the way to Mt. Rose for sledding.
Staying here felt like house sitting for a friend. You see the evidence of the owner's presence with some clothes in the closets and dressers which is not an issue but reminds you that he is still quite actively using the house. On the other hand, with an involved host the house was very well stocked. The main space (kitchen, dining, and family room) was an open concept and spacious enough for 8-10ppl. The kitchen had everything you would want with plenty of pots, pans, plates, glasses and utensils. Everything was in good working order. The couch was plush and comfortable. The gas furnace was toasty and set the tone for the cabin-like decor. The entertainment options were numerous. We watched cable and Netflix and played a few video games. In the game room on the bottom floor there was also a bar style pool table, another large flat screen and another gaming console. There was a vintage Asteroids arcade machine but it wasn't working unfortunately, otherwise it would have made for a good trip down memory lane. There are many, many books to peruse through. The free Wifi worked well through out the house. The hot tub outside was nice. It appeared newer and worked great. The one caveat here is that since it's tucked away into a tight corner on one of the balconies it made maneuvering the heavy cover on and off pretty tricky. We liked that there were plenty of towels in the storage closet so that you could keep bath and hot tub towels separate. The garage space is a pretty tight fit for one car and the driveway can accommodate one more. There were several sleds in the garage available to use. A possible area of improvement would be the beds and bedding which could use some updating and refreshing which makes the rating a 4-1/2. Overall, it was a good stay.
I appreciate the detailed review and am always glad when a guest notices the amount of thought I've put into their vacation experience. However, things aren't always as they may seem at first glance. For better or worse, I haven't spent a night in the house for more than a year. As mentioned in the instructions each guests receives, the Asteroids machine has probably died although I haven't yet given up hope on reviving it - so I haven't thrown it out but I don't advertise it. The hot tub cover is actually easy to simply push into its holder which is hinged and holds the cover vertically, but this guest didn't read the instructions I emailed or the framed instruction sheet attached to the wall by the hot tub. The hot tub cover had been pulled out, then lifted and removed in a way I had never anticipated a guest would attempt. The garage space is snug for my 4runner SUV but roomy for a car and guests have parked two additional vehicles in the heated driveway and a fourth off the street on the property, parallel to the road on the heated asphalt approach to the driveway. I have just replaced some of the bedding and continue to update the entire house. I have made more than $75,000 in improvements to the house over the last 3 years and I am committed to providing outstanding vacation experiences to my guests.
Great Family Getaway!
This is a great family getaway and we had a wonderful time! The home is large enough for the three families we had to have privacy AND enjoy time together. My grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed sledding down a nearby snow hill, making snow angels when it snowed for us and spending time at the local bowling alley/arcade. We will be returning!
Great for extended family
The assignment: take grandkids to someplace with snow. Also tagging along, their parents, and assorted nieces, nephews and other family for a group of 10, but really all I cared about was getting the grankids in snow.
The challenge: It hasn't been snowing much. I gambled and booked this place for MLK weekend in hopes there would be storms before hand. There weren't. i was worried.
The success: Literally 15 minutes drive up the road from here, we found great snow and sledding on Mount Rose highway, grandkids were thrilled,everyone else had fun and the house was great for gathering, cooking and playing games in the evening.
Thank you for the kind review. Even when the snowfall is less than average, a little more elevation can a big difference. Google "Tahoe Meadows" to find reviews of the huge clearing this guest visited. I supply a toboggan, various sleds and saucers, and the private hot tub and gas fireplace that gives you a cozy fire at the push of a button back at the house for afterwards. This year I replaced the range and refrigerator and got a new set of caphelon cookware. I also added 2 more smart TVs to the bedrooms for streaming movies and other internet content. It is my goal to make this wonderful house my guests' Tahoe home for years to come! Thanks! Trevor
Family Christmas Home Away from Home
This was our first Christmas in 32 years of marriage away from home. While it wasn't the 'white' Christmas I had hoped for, it was still an AMAZING week. The home is beautiful, spacious with beautiful views. The whole family (and we haven't been living under the same roof for more than 1 night, in many years) enjoyed their stay. We had fun bowling, sledding, snowball fights and just enjoying the relaxing setting. Very peaceful. Trevor has set up the rental perfectly! Would definitely consider another summer or winter at this beautiful location.
Thank you for the kind review. I am always delighted when my guests describe their vacations as AMAZING. :) There are so many wonderful things to do in the area all year round, and I've set up the house to be a vacation in itself with plenty of entertainment from the pool table, the 3 video gaming systems, table games, books to read, several large smart TVs for streaming movies, etc. After record snowfall last year, so far we've seen less than average this year but there is plenty of snow for sledding at a slightly higher elevation just 10 minutes up the road at the "Tahoe Meadows". (Google it)
I look forward to welcoming you back for your next stay! Trevor
Lake Tahoe: #1 most popular destination in the USA. Blessed with sparkling natural beauty, Lake Tahoe is considered the jewel of the High Sierra. The lake is known for the clarity of its water and the panorama of surrounding mountains on all sides. At 6,229 feet above sea level, Lake Tahoe is the highest lake of its size in the United States, measuring 22 miles long by 12 miles wide, has a surface area of 191 square miles and an average depth of 989 feet and 72 miles of shoreline. Incline Village has a population of approximately 8,000 and is surrounded by Forest Service land. It is a quiet affluent community with a number of great restaurants, a small movie theater, 2 world class golf courses, a bowling alley, quaint shops, and good hospitality. The Lone Eagle Grill at the Hyatt in Incline Village is an great lakeside restaurant with an outdoor firepit that is a nice place to enjoy a cocktail and appetizers. There is also a pier with a bar that serves tasty food and drinks in the summer. Next to the Hyatt is Ski Beach/Incline Beach which is restricted to Incline Village residents and our guests (such as you). There are lifeguards, sand volleyball, barbecues, a snack bar that serves burgers, sandwiches, drinks, etc., a jungle gym, and a boat ramp. There is a small daily fee. 3 miles away is Incline Village's other private beach that you also have access to: Burnt Cedar Beach. It is my favorite place in the world. Burnt Cedar Beach has all the amenities of Ski Beach but instead of a boat ramp it has an Olympic size lifeguarded pool and a kiddie pool and a roped off lifeguarded swimming area of the beach, along with a concession for renting kayaks, stand up paddle boards, etc. Other Activities: Boating, volleyball, snowmobiling, sledding, bowling, private hot tub, golf, snow skiing, water skiing, tennis, hiking. Sking: More world class ski resorts are clustered around Lake Tahoe than anywhere in the world. Diamond Peak Ski resort is only 3.5 miles from my house and offers breathtaking panaramic views of Lake Tahoe and reasonable prices. 2017-18 rates are $79 for an all day adult lift ticket as compared to $129+ at Squaw Valley and Heavenly Valley. At Diamond Peak Youths 13-23 are $59. Kids 7-12 are $34 and kids 6 or under ski for FREE. Save $5 per ticket for online purchases at Diamond Peak website. Multi day discounts are available. Check Costco for Diamond Peak specials too! Northstar Resort and Mount Rose are about 20 minutes, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Heavenly Valley and more are about 45 minutes away. Great sledding, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, etc. are within 10 minutes (the Meadow at Mount Rose right next to Hwy 431) and I have a toboggan, sleds, and saucers for your use. Rachel and I sledded down the hill right next to our house. We built snowmen and make snow angels in the yard. My parents left pairs of snowshoes at the house that you are welcome to try out and you can use my Sorrel boots. I recently learned that the Incline Village Golf courses that are within a mile of my house pack the snow on their cart paths in winter for snowshoers and cross country skiers and their driving range is open for sledding. In summer, theatergoers flock to see the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival at nearby Sand Harbor. Google it! Winter sees snow boarders and skiers maneuvering to Diamond Peak (3 miles from my house) and Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe (10 miles from my house). Golf: The Incline Village Mountain course is the best executive course anywhere. It is less than a mile from my house. The Incline Village Championship course is 2 miles away. Call me crazy but this golf course was one of the main reasons I originally moved to Incline Village. There is a driving range and short game practice facilities. Golf at the Championship course is especially fun. The ball flies at least a full club farther (and curves less if you slice) due to the thinner air at elevation. I have more power than finesse and have hit drives close to 400 yards and have made an eagle on the par 5 tenth hole with an 2 iron off the tee and a wedge into the green. The Old Brockway course is in Kings Beach, a ten minute drive from my house. It is a classic layout on mostly flat land near Lake Tahoe. There is a driving range. Edgewood Golf Course is in South Lake Tahoe, about a 45 minute drive away. It hosts the Subaru Celebrity Golf tournament each summer in July, a huge event. It is a very memorable golf experience. There are some newer upscale courses in the Truckee area, and the Northstar course is a nice track as well. The frisbee disc course by the Incline Village Recreation Center is fun, and I've got some discs and a satchel for them and you are welcome to try them out.
