Twin Bridges house description

This is a small and cozy cabin set amongst mature pine trees at Echo Summit with easy access to US 50. The cabin has a very homey feel that makes it a perfect place to get away from it all and curl up with a good book or enjoy a family board game. This ideal location is also an attractive destination for outdoor enthusiasts year round!

This cabin can accommodate 9 guests and features a comfortable open living area with a wood burning stove, large dining table, fully equipped kitchen, master bedroom, with bath, and a covered deck on the main level. Upstairs there is an open loft with desk and futon couch, a full bath and a bedroom with one queen and twin bed. The basement den has a pullout sofa and a full bath. The house also comes with 1 queen and 2 twin inflatable mattresses.

In the winter enjoy alpine skiing 2 miles down the road at Sierra-at-Tahoe or take the short 15-minute drive to the world-class ski resort Heavenly Valley. Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing are right out your back door and the state run Adventure Mountain Snow Park is less than a mile away.

In the summer, picturesque Echo Lake, less than a mile away, is a fun local attraction for swimming, fishing and kayaking. South Lake Tahoe is known for its plethora of scenic hiking trails for any level of hiker, including the famous Pacific Crest Trail which borders the east side of the property.

The lakeside town of South Lake Tahoe is only 15 minutes away with several world-class restaurants, marinas, shopping and casinos. In summary, this cabin is a perfect getaway, whether you want to relax in seclusion or explore the great outdoors.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              Why the Owner Chose Twin Bridges:
              We love this home because it's close to family friendly Sierra-at-Tahoe ski resort, Desolation Wilderness and Lovers Leap Climbing area. No need to fight traffic - you're 'home' in minutes! The home is away from the crowds of South Lake Tahoe, yet close enough to enjoy all the sights there too.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Great location for year-round activities. In addition to winter snow play, summer activities include hiking, boating, and rock climbing. Echo Lake is only about 1 mile past the home which gives access to many day hikes in Desolation Wilderness. It's a gorgeous hike around the lake; and you can take a boat ride back across the lake! South Lake Tahoe is also just over the hill. Or just stay at the house to relax and enjoy the 1 1/2 acre area wooded area property. We enjoy sitting out on the covered deck overlooking the backyard and visiting after a fun day of activities.
