Property description

Beautiful mountain home with three full bedrooms plus a convertible bedroom/retreat on the main floor. Separate room contains a new and private sauna. The house overlooks a private meadow and small stream. Backs onto Forest Land meaning easy access for hiking or snowshoeing. Antique furnishings, newly finished hardwood floors, oriental carpets, and old-fashioned lighting adds a unique high Sierra touch. Views front and back to mountains. Drive, walk, or take shuttle to Kirkwood Center. Embark on hikes from your front door. Proximate to Kirkwood Lake, for swimming or paddling and picnics. Drive to Caples lake for a rustic dinner, fishing, or boating.

Lower level has two large bedrooms and a large family room equipped with television, pool table, PS2, and ping pong table. Inflatable mattresses add sleeping space. There is also a second refrigerator, microwave, and dishwasher. Access a screened porch off one of the bedrooms and the family room.

This house is perfect for your family, friends or just a romantic get away! It's a quick 45-minute drive to South Lake Tahoe or Jackson for shopping, casino nights, movies, or dinners. A little longer drive takes you to Carson City for Walmart or Costco.

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Kirkwood:
Kirkwood is an ideal family resort. With the best snow in the Sierra's and challenging runs, it's an excellent choice for serious skiing. At the same time, there is a mountain club for the kids and plenty of instruction for beginners or those wanting to brush up on their skills. Because you can take a shuttle to the slope, you don't have to hassle with parking. Everyone can enjoy the time they want at the slopes and the quiet time they want reading, cooking, or watching television. It's a quick shuttle ride back to the house for lunch.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Quiet beauty and opportunities for all sorts of healthy activities at the doorstep. Hiking, snow-shoeing, skiing, horseback riding, mountain bike riding, and fishing are all available right there. It's equally beautiful summer and winter, so it's a beautiful ski house with access to all sorts of activities.
