Sunnyside house description

Ruby's Retreat now has a Hot Tub! Come to Tahoe and enjoy Ruby's Retreat on the West Shore! This completely remodeled mountain getaway is perfect for two families or three couples looking for fun and adventure or just a relaxing vacation away from it all. The master bedroom is tucked away upstairs among the trees. You will have a king bed, a private balcony and your own full bath. Upstairs you also find a cozy bunk room for the kids, a full bath and a Great Room with a bar, treetop views, high ceilings and a memory foam king sized pull-out sofa. The contemporary mountain decor is comfortable and inviting for the whole family. Downstairs there is a family room with a flat screen TV, DVD and Stereo with a large comfortable sectional. You can enjoy the sunken fireplace (wood burning) with cozy seating and a perfect table for playing cards or games (cards and games included). The kitchen and dining room have all the modern features, gas range, stainless refrigerator and bar for extra seating. Downstairs there is a laundry room with front load washer and dryer. The Queen room downstairs has a comfortable seating area for reading a book or taking a nap with a full bath steps away. There is a gas BBQ on the large front deck with a picnic table big enough for your whole crew in the summer. We offer free wireless internet access throughout the house and have a large book and DVD library for your entertainment.

Ruby's Retreat is close to Sunnyside Resort, Firesign Café and Paige Meadows. You are a mere 10 houses up the road from the beach and a quick walk to many hiking and biking trails along Ward Creek or on the back side of Alpine Meadows (the Alpine Shuttle picks you up at the end of the driveway for skiing on weekends and holidays in the winter). Tahoe City is only 2 miles away and offers many restaurants, shopping and activities. You have a one car garage and plenty of parking for extra cars or trailers in the driveway.

You can now enjoy a soak in the newly installed private hot tub in the back yard. Enjoy the view of the stars or the snow fall as you soak away the aches and pains of a day playing in the mountains!

We have fenced in a portion of the back yard for our four legged friends!

We know you will love this one of a kind, kid & dog friendly home away from home. Visit Lake Tahoe and enjoy all that it has to offer.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: A perfect Tahoe day for our wedding!

                  Why the Owner Chose Sunnyside:
                  Mark Twain said, '...I thought it must surely be the fairest picture the whole world affords.' when he first laid eyes on Lake Tahoe. We couldn't agree more. The mountain location allows young and old alike to enjoy a beautiful, peaceful and adventurous vacation.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  You are walking distance to the beach in the summer and the Alpine Meadow shuttle picks you up at driveway for skiing in the winter. Tahoe City is a quick drive and you are walking distance to two popular restaurants and a market. A variety of hiking and biking trails can be accessed just out the back door. Ruby's Retreat offers many entertainment options to help you weather any storm, such as a DVD or book library as well as many fun games to choose from. In front of the wood fireplace is the perfect spot to snuggle up on a stormy day. With an eye on 'green building' we used mostly reclaimed lumber for our remodel. This allows for the modern conveniences of today with a unique and rustic Tahoe feel. Wireless Internet will keep you connected, but you feel miles away from it all nestled in the trees.
