Mountain Shadows condo description

This large end-unit condo is beautifully furnished, recently renovated, and gets lots of sunshine. Conveniently located very close to Lake Tahoe, it's nestled in the trees near the protected and undeveloped part of the lake. The condo is also close to skiing (both Alpine and cross-country), the Hyatt Hotel/Casino, a large tennis facility, two golf courses, mountain biking, hiking and all lake activities (boating, fishing, swimming). There is also a large indoor recreation facility close by with an Olympic-size swimming pool, basketball court, and a fully-equipped gym.
This is the owner's second home and mountain retreat. It includes a spacious combined living/dining room with cathedral ceiling, fireplace, and wet bar. There is a fully-equipped kitchen, a desk/workstation, wireless throughout the home, and all the amenities you'll need to make your vacation comfortable. There's also a large wrap-around deck with a propane barbecue grill for outdoor cooking and comfortable deck furniture. Rent directly from owner.

Golf courses: There are two excellent golf courses in Incline, and discounts are possible with passes.

Tennis Courts: There is a tennis complex in Incline with 10 courts. Daily and weekly memberships are available. Also, the tennis facility can find partners at your level for you.

Ski Areas: We are 3 minutes away from Diamond Peak Ski Area (there is also a bus to get there). Also, buses run from the Hyatt to other major ski areas (Alpine, Squaw Valley, etc.). Heavenly Valley is 30 minute drive south.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1985

                      About the owner: My wife Astrid and I live in Sausalito, California, just across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco. We both grew up on the East coast: New York for me, Connecticut for Astrid. I graduated from Colgate University and Dartmouth College, where I got my MBA. She graduated from Vassar. This is our second home. We love it in both the winter and summer.

                      Why the Owner Chose Mountain Shadows:
                      One of the nicest, largest 3 bedroom condos in the Mountain Shadows complex. Also one that gets plenty of sunlight. It is just as comfortable if you are a party of 2 or up to 7.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      Although the condo is in a complex, you feel completely separate once you are inside. We love the spacious living room/dining room upstairs, with cathedral ceiling. Also, grocery shopping is quite close by, as are good restaurants. Our kitchen is fully equipped, as Astrid loves to cook.
