Sunnyside cabin description

We're eager for your business, so check our availability and bring us an offer...

Named after an Austrian ski chalet, "The Alpenrose" is a unique and charming log cabin located on the romantic West Shore of Lake Tahoe.

Very "Old Tahoe" in look and feel and tucked away in the pines, an easy walk from the lake, Ward Creek, or Kilner Park with its tennis courts, swings, sand volleyball, and play structures. "The Alpenrose" offers a wonderful and rejuvenating escape from civilization. Majestic logs embrace the downstairs living room, kitchen, and dining area. Curl up with a book in front of the stone fireplace. Hardwood floors and tree-filled views round out your experience. Despite the rustic décor, there is wireless broadband internet, the kitchen has all the usual modern conveniences, and there is a full-size washer and dryer.

Upstairs find two comfortable double bedrooms, a separate "kids room" with two twin beds a bunk bed, and a (small) trundle bed, a newly remodeled full bath, and a "media room" with an outstanding home theater (61" Samsung TV, Blu-Ray DVD with streaming internet video / movie rental, and high quality (Miller Kreisel / Yamaha DSP A1) surround sound system), cable TV and a Playstation. A small video and gaming library is also available for your use. The bathroom and adjacent mudroom downstairs were also remodeled last year allowing for a convenient back door entry, a new knotty-pine bath with shower, and a new extra-large water heater to help get all those vacationers out the door and on to the slopes or hiking trails.

TESTIMONIALS!

"We LOVE this cabin! Great location on the wonderful West Shore. We have rented it twice and will be back again. Great for kids-walk to creek to catch tadpoles in Summer. Very positive experience. Owner is very friendly and responsive."
M.C., Martinez, CA

"We have rented cabins at Tahoe during the winter for the last six years, and the Alpenrose is our favorite so far. It is so cozy; the heat just radiates from the spiral staircase, and the owners spare no expense on the bedding. The location is perfect; we were skiing at Homewood five minutes after breakfast! The neighborhood is safe enough to allow kids to roam. I walked down to the creek - didn't want to leave. The owners are very gracious."
K.H., Woodbridge, CA

"We loved the Alpenrose! This was our first visit to Lake Tahoe with our daughter and dog. The Bernese Mt. Dog was in cold heaven and the teenager gave it two thumbs up! We especially enjoyed the warmth of the cabin after really cold dog walks to the creek. We'll be back when the snow flies! The cabin's location is fantastic and we had a wonderfully relaxing visit in what felt like our home away from home. We really appreciated the friendliness and accomodating nature of the owner."
L.C., Mill Valley, CA

"This cabin is a great place to stay with kids. Very quiet, great location to creek, park, lake, and everything! Great sleeping arrangement for kids-very quiet at night. Our best cabin rental in Tahoe yet!!"
K.S., Napa CA

NEARBY ATTRACTIONS:
Although this Lake Tahoe cabin is quiet and secluded, the lake and numerous activities are within easy walking distance. Choose your season for fun in the mountains. Do not forget, Spring and Fall can be fabulous.

SUMMER:
Kilner Park, with two tennis courts, a sand volleyball court, and wonderful children's play structure is less than a five-minute walk away. In the other direction, is the rush of Ward Creek, where our young children have spent many an hour. A wonderful bike lane winds through the trees for miles around the lake (bike and boat rentals locally available).

In your car you are 15 minutes from some spectacular Lake Tahoe beaches and less than that from beautiful state parks, or shopping in downtown Tahoe City. Perhaps you would rather float a raft down the Truckee River. A little longer and you can enjoy sunshine at Squaw Valley, or night life in Truckee or a local casino.

WINTER:
Snowshoe or ski in the nearby park, or drive minutes (against traffic!) to the family-friendly Homewood ski area. Note that the property is in a flat neighborhood, minimizing the risk of needing to put chains on your car. The driveway is also regularly plowed.

Drive a bit further to world-renown skiing at Squaw or (our favorite) Alpine Meadows.

NOTE - Avoid Driving!! - On the weekends there is a free shuttle bus that goes to Alpine's backdoor (10" ride to bottom of the Sherwood chair lift). Pick up is a 5 MINUTE WALK from the cabin!! Tickets can be purchased on the bus. See Alpine's website for more info.

Après ski at the local Sunnyside Lodge or the Black Bear Inn (both within walking distance) is a perfect way to wind down the day.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1994

                  About the owner: Happily married with three kids, two dogs, two cats, and a few chickens. We live and work in hectic Silicon Valley and look forward to our relaxing Lake Tahoe get-aways when ever possible (never often enough!)

                  Why the Owner Chose Sunnyside:
                  We were engaged at Inspiration Point (Emerald Bay), Lake Tahoe in '94 and had been in love with the area before that. We bought our "cabin house" the same year and have never looked back. The Tahoe "West Shore" retains the heart of the traditional "Old Tahoe" and has always been our favorite part of the Lake: a little more quiet, traditional, old school...

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  The "West Shore is the Best Shore" they say. Mornings at The Alpenrose are quiet and peaceful. In just 2-3 minutes one can walk down to Ward Creek, or the other direction to Kilner Park to play with the kids or hit tennis balls. A 10 minute walk takes you to Sunnyside Lodge for sunset cocktails on the deck (highly recommended) or just walking along the shore of Lake Tahoe, checking out the boats and the views. Beautiful!
