Location, location, location. In the summertime, the open terrain becomes some of the best hiking and biking trails on the North Shore. You can access the trails at the home and go for miles. All the roads in the neighborhood dead end at trail heads. North National Park is walking distance to the house and offers Frisbee golf, ball fields, snowmobile rentals and much more. The Lake at Kings Beach is 2.5 miles away and has boat and kayak rentals. White, sandy beaches will remind you of being in Hawaii. Shopping and entertainment are here with casinos 3 miles away that will satisfy your thirst for nightlife. Crystal Bay Club is known for their music venues, and Cal Neva for their spa services. There is an abundance of restaurants and shops scattered up and down Kings Beach that will cater to your daytime or evening dining fancies.

In the wintertime… you are in the middle of the North Shore with easy access to the ski resorts. You are 4 miles to the entrance of Northstar which offers a great all-around skiing mountain, along with a new village with ice skating rink, shops and restaurants. Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley are minutes away and there is a short cut which eliminates dealing with traffic in Tahoe City. Diamond Peak and Mt Rose are 20 min away and offers less expensive skiing with specials and family pricing. Cross country skiing and snow shoeing are literally out the back door…and for those adventure enthusiasts, there is a multitude of snowmobiling rentals as close at 2 miles from the house.

This chalet style home with loft is great for large families or groups of friends. It has an open floor plan with 22ft ceilings with large windows looking out to the forest. Located in a quiet pocket of homes surrounded by forest land, you'll see more people out walking than cars driving by. All the roads dead end at trail heads that the forestry service maintains which allows unlimited hiking and biking in the summertime. In the wintertime, the front yard becomes a nice sledding hill for the kids. In the summertime, the kids will love playing in the meadow, and the hiking the trails

As you walk in front door, you are greeted by a large open living area called the 'Great Room'. In Tahoe we think cooking is a main hobby, so houses are built with open areas that comprise of the living, kitchen and dining room. You can cook and socialize at the same time.Your family or group will enjoy the spacious living area with sectional,scattered ottomans, and a wood burning stove with brick hearth. This faces a large HD Smart TV with Dish satellite reception. The dining area has a 10 top timber trestle table with benches and is perfect for entertaining at. The kitchen, surrounded by countertops, and barstools, overlooks the dining and living area, with lots of counter space and large enough to accommodate a number of chefs. The kitchen has another table in it with barstools, and ample cupboard space with all the amenities you may want or need during your stay. Off the dining area is a sliding glass door that exits out to a sunny wrap-around deck. The deck has just been remodeled with expansions and wrap around seating. Its great in both winter and summer. The deck and house sits low off the street, so you have privacy with a nice yard, and a meadow behind the house. Patio furniture and barbecues make the summertime outdoor activities worth looking forward to. Off the side yard is deck with forest views and separate deck with Hot Tub. You can soak in the tub for hours, enjoying the meadow views.

Down the hall from the living area, is a full bathroom, laundry room and two bedrooms. One room has a queen bed , TV, and has a sliding glass door that exits out to a private deck with a view that looks out to a the meadow the house sits on. The other bedroom, has a pillow top King size poster bed, TV, and meadow views.

Up the stairs are two more enclosed bedrooms, and a loft. The Master bedroom is large and has a King bed, and twin bed, TV/DVD and bathroom. The high A framed beam ceilings, and the triangle windows above the bed really makes this room special. At night you can see stars, and in the morning you can see the colors of the sky's sunrise. Off the Master is a alcove with twin bed, and another full bathroom with skylights. The loft is adjacent to this with 2 twin beds, TV,and doubles as a game room. There is a full size foosballs table that is a hit for children, and extra room to play cards etc. There is also a private 4th bedroom here with a queen bed and TV which shares the high beam ceilings, and towering windows.

Each room has a TV and is unique with European style bedding with 300 count sheets, extra pillows, plisse, bed throw, memory foam toppers and window coverings to give you the charm and comfort you'd expect from a mountain home. The furnishings compliment the 'Pine Lodge' decor. The open areas and high ceiling ,allow you to socialize with family or friends, without feeling closed in.

The house has all the amenities of home and more. Coffee service is provided for your first morning here, and bathrobes are in most bedrooms for your use. 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.

This is just 1 of 6 homes I own in Lake Tahoe. The others are 5 and 6 bedrooms also and have the same amenities and location. 5 are walking distance to each other for those who need 2 homes.

Please note. The pictures were taken by a professional photographer who used a wide angle lens to include more of the different rooms.

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.

What makes this house unique

Love the location and all the hiking around the house. You can wake up, get a cup of coffee and walk right from the house to one of the many trials with lake views. A total Tahoe experience.

The neighborhood is surrounded by tall pines and unlimited hiking trails, yet Kings Beach with restaurants and shopping is right down the street. Great Lake front restaurants and always something to do. The casinos are 3 miles away with gambling, music and spa services.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family wanted a nice home in a great quiet neighborhood that was close to the Lake, restaurants, and centrally located to many activities. We picked the perfect place. The house was set up to accommodate 3 families well, the kids had lots of areas around the house to play without needing adult supervision, the adults really enjoyed the late nightcaps on the large deck under the stars, and we all enjoyed the hot tub and incredible smells of the forest surrounding us. Days were spent at the beach's close to the house, and everything we talked about doing, we did and it was easy to get there. Every a super grocery store for all the items we forgot was close enough to buzz down to. The beds were comfortable, and the decor and amenities added to our enjoyment. Little touches here and there were welcomed, and we made new friends with the neighbors next door. Finally..we found our vacation home in Lake Tahoe and look forward to next year's stay.

Great mountain/lake escape to recharge and enjoy nature

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are both from the mountains (Norway and Montana) and often miss spending time in nature and in the mountains. We planned this week at Lake Tahoe so we could share our love on nature with our kids and as an added bonus we were able to take our big ole dog with us. We all LOVED hanging out on the wonderful deck with!! We loved getting the chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city as well as the heat! I think our dog enjoyed a break from the heat and humidity too, he spent most of his time chilling on the deck too, taking in the refreshing, cool air.

The cottage is SO cute, clean, and cozy! It felt like a home away from home the second we got there. The beds were very comfy, the feeling you’ll get the minute you walk through the door is amazing, and the home has all the amenities you need - including games, toys, movies... We took a day to drive over to Emerald Bay and the kids LOVED the beach - great fun!

The owner was SO helpful! She contacted us a few times to make sure we were having fun and to see if we had any questions. I would go back in a heartbeat and would recommend this to anyone.

Another great Lake Tahoe house.

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd home we've rented from Sandy and enjoyed it just as much as the first one. We had a smaller group of 12 and it fit us perfectly. We arrived to a clean, comfortable cabin with the same wonderful bedding as her more expensive home. The deck was fabulous and we ate our dinners outside every night.

A previous tenant commented on mosquitos..we saw none. In fact, there was nothing flying around, just the occasional squirrel that seemed like it between trees.

The house was great and the location is close to the lake, stores, restaurants, and even the casinos which my mother-in-law won $600.00 and made her trip.

We are now planning our ski week here in Feb.

Relaxing, perfect location for hiking

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin, everything we needed was there. We hiked the Tahoe Rim Trail, less than 1 mile from the cabin. Cabin was clean and ready for us, no problems with wifi. Hot tub was glorious. No noise no neighbors on either side. Loved walking around and looking at other houses and cabins, dreaming of the future. Nice place to visit, even better if we could afford to buy a place to get away. But this cabin is perfect for us. Both the owner and property manager are easy to contact and responsive when needed. Will be back soon.

nice, secluded area to stay. They house was cozy and open at the same time.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time going North to vacation and it was great! It was secluded enough and at the same time close enough to Kings Beach. The house felt surprisingly large with the open floor plan it offered. The outside was amazing with enough space to actually hang out on the deck and have fabulous bbq dinners. Both young and older had a great time.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

The guest house was a fantastic place for us to spend a few days! It is perfectly located for exploring the region, including Emerald Bay, Squaw Valley and Incline Village. Great fishing and golf is less than 10 minutes away. The house is clean, comfortable, quiet and outfitted with everything you need to have access to the comforts of home. Sandy was exceptionally kind and welcoming and we really appreciated her hospitality, including early check in. We will definitely be coming back! Thank you -The Stewarts

Bakers Birthdays

  • 5 of 5

I organized a family reunion and birthday celebration and the destination was Lake Tahoe. We chose this cabin because of the large deck, and location.It was perfect! Beautiful cabin, different areas to hang out, facilities were great, all very clean and organized. Quiet neighborhood, but close to town. We found a trail and walked to the beach one day, but going back up the hill was a challenge. Guess the trade of are the incredible views at the end of the street!! We had a wonderful BBQ celebration on the deck and left with

special memories at this place. Hope to return next year and re-live our experience.

Kings Beach

This house is in the middle of the Northshore and has easy access to all Lake Tahoe has to offer. 1.5 miles from the highway, getting around the Tahoe Basin is effortless. The drive around the Lake is breathtaking and you'll enjoy the different little towns that surround the Lake. . The house is in a quiet pocket of homes just up from the Lake at Kings Beach .All the homes here sit on a meadow with tall pine trees, and roads dead end at the hiking trails. Winter and summer they are used and maintained by the forest service. It borders the Tahoe Rim trail which is a destination for some with endless hiking trails you can access from the house. Brockway Summit is well know for its path to Tahoe City, and Watson Lake is worth hiking too. You can walk in the summertime to our neighborhood park, North National Park. The park encompasses approximately 124 acres of predominantly active recreational activities. An 18 par fitness course, ball fields, Frisbee Golf, playground are just a few options. In the wintertime they offer a nice sledding hill for tubing and snow fun. Within 20 min to all the ski resorts on the North Shore, Northstar in the closest and newest village. The village was modeled after Beaver Creek Colorado...cobblestone sidewalks, copper roofs and a multitude of restaurants and shops that line the 'square'. The square is an ice skating rink in the wintertime and roller skating in summer. The bon fire pits and outdoor bars are always there. Its a wonderful setting to hang out at especially at night. Skiing here is family orientated with lots of ski programs for all ages, and a pristine mountain that keeps a good grasp on good snow conditions. If your staying a week, I highly recommend taking advantage of the other resorts also. A bonus is from the house you can drive the back way to Alpine and Squaw Valley which will eliminate the morning traffic through Tahoe City. Both mountains have tons of excellent skiing, and mountain biking in the summertime. MT Rose is where to go for open terrain, Diamond Peak for kids and an easy day skiing. Both are 15 min to the house. In the summertime, Kings Beach just down the street is a State Park with lifeguard and lake toys to rent. The beach is the highlight with wide sandy beaches, and views you have to experience to appreciate. There are also smaller beaches up and down the strip for reading a book, and dog beaches for your loved ones. Brockway golf course in Kings Beach is a must for those that just want a good time. One of the top 9 hole courses in California, its known for its yardage and views. In the wintertime the course becomes a snowmobiling park. Tahoe City is 12 miles away and offers another nice city with shops, restaurants and outdoor venues. The Truckee River is our playground for fishing, river rafting, and bike baths to view all. A nice day is renting your bike in Tahoe City and riding to River Ranch. This is a river front restaurant with large outdoor patio at the entrance to Alpine Meadows. Here is where the river tours end and usually where the rafts have issues. You can spend the day here watching the rafters and enjoying their menu and drink. Between the location , amenities of the house, and your favorite family or friends, you'll have a great home to stay at while getting a true Lake Tahoe experience.

I offer 5 homes in this neighborhood that are great vacation rentals. '' All the homes sit on a meadow and the roads dead end at trail heads. Tall pine trees with sights and smells surround the houses and the quiet sound of birds and the wind blowing through the trees is intoxicating. Located in the middle of the North Shore, there is easy access to any event or place you want to drive to in the Tahoe basin. The beach's down the street are like being in an Hawaiian cove. Shallow water is safe for children and lifeguards line the beach. The State Park at Kings Beach has BBQ grills and picnic tables on the shoreline with lots of parking. In the wintertime, Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley, Northstar, Diamond Peak, Mt Rose are all within 20 min to the house. Super easy access to all, with short cuts eliminating traffic to most. Enjoy skiing at a different resort everyday. The house is clean and well maintained. Many guests come back yearly and refer others to my homes.
