Meeks Bay house description

If your dates are booked, PLEASE CHECK OUT our other new rental at vrbo.com/491643! It has great views too! Our summer dates open for booking in Jan. but please inquire if you want us to give you first choice at that time!

The home is a beautiful family cabin overlooking Meeks Bay with a full lake view. It has 4 bedrooms and 2 baths. Three of the bedrooms have nice lake views, and the fourth has filtered lake views as well. The entrance is on the top level where the master bedroom with a king bed is located as well as the kitchen, living room and dining room. The best feature is enjoying the expansive and scenic views from the kitchen, living room and dining room with your family or friends. With the master bedroom and bath on the top level, there is easy access to the main living areas. We also have a new gas fireplace insert in the living room which heats quickly and looks like a crackling burning fire!

There are 3 additional bedrooms along with a second bathroom downstairs. There is a large deck with comfortable seating as well as a stainless gas BBQ on the top level and also a second private deck on lower level. The decks offer great lake views and are beautiful for relaxing and having a BBQ; guests enjoy seeing the sunset colors or sunrise over the lake and seeing both Meeks Bay and across the lake views.

WiFi is available but is not set up for video streaming.

~WINTER SNOWBOARDING/SKIING: The home is only about 4 miles from Homewood Mountain Resort which has great snowboarding and skiing and Beautiful wide open lake views. Driving to Alpine Meadows is also not far (approximately 20 mins.) and one of our favorite resorts; it's great for families.
~SUMMER FEATURES:
The home is very close to Meeks Bay Beach and Resort which has great lake activities for all ages and is one of the best beach areas on the lake. In the summer, Meeks Bay offers swimming, boating, and has a marina and a lodge which provide snacks and gift items. At the beach there is snack bar as well as other water activities like kayaks and paddle boats. There is a sand volleyball court and boat rentals at Meeks Bay. To see what Meeks Bay has to offer google Meeks Bay Resort. It is a great family resort with fun activities for all ages!
Our home is located in a quiet and relaxing neighborhood, this is truly in a special mountain setting. There is also easy access to hiking on the Meeks Bay trail above Meeks Bay Resort up to lakes and the Desolation Wilderness area.
Our house is very close to the beach as there is a woodsy pathway starting at the house (only a 5 to 10 minute walk) that leads you down to the beautiful white sandy beach at Meeks Bay in the summer. (This is across highway 89.) The walk down is also a beautiful quiet walk and area to visit in the winter.

If you head down highway 89 toward the south shore, you will arrive at beautiful Emerald Bay which is about a 15-20 minute drive on highway 89. There are spectacular hiking trails, waterfalls and tours of the Vikingsholm available; this is run by the State Parks. There is a trail down to Emerald Bay where there are tours of Vikingsholm available. Sugar Pine Point State Park is also only a few miles north and is the location of the historic Erhman Mansion with available tours and a beautiful lake and pier area, picnic areas as well as hiking and biking trails.
Another great activity is to catch the bike trail which is 1/4 mile down from the home across highway 89 and goes all the way in to Tahoe City.
Once you experience this area and home, you will want to come back year after year!!

          Owner info

          About the owner: Our cabin is owned by two families and was built by our parents years ago because Meeks Bay was our parent's favorite area to go on vacation and get away to relax. We also love Meeks Bay and have memories that go back to the old lodge and family acitivities that happened when Meeks was run by the Kehlet Family. The old lodge was amazing and had so much character. We still are very fortunate to be able to enjoy the pristine nature of the beautiful beach and surrounding area. It never grows old. The new managment of Meeks Bay has done a very excellent job of keeping it grounds looking beautiful and keeping the character of an old Tahoe Resort. Both of our families love to swim, take walks on the trails and hike, to ride the bike trail and to enjoy all that Tahoe has to offer!

          Why the Owner Chose Meeks Bay:
          We chose this property because we had visited Meeks Bay all our childhood years staying at the rustic Meeks Bay cabins!

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          When you go stay at our cabin, it is totally relaxing. You get to breathe the fresh mountain air.....enjoy the crystal clear cool water and beautiful light sand at Meeks Bay. If you don't do too much you return home very rejuvenated. You will get the urge to go back once you have been there.........The best part is the gorgeous lake view you can enjoy from the house year round.
