Kings Beach cottage description

Romantic Getaway or a Quaint Stay for a small family in Kings Beach (where the days are longer on this side of the Lake).

“The Gingerbread Cottage”

Just four blocks from the beach, you can bring your helmets and ride the PROVIDED BIKES on the level streets into town to enjoy the sandy beaches of Kings Beach, restaurants, shops, movie theater, seasonal farmer’s market and free Friday night music concerts on the beach. Or take the two PROVIDED KAYAKS for an early morning paddle on the crystal clear waters of Lake Tahoe.

Staying in this “new to the market” vacation rental you can have access to hiking and biking trails just blocks away, Fourth of July fireworks, enjoy Shakespeare on the Lake during the months of July and August, spend a day floating down the Truckee River, golf the alpine courses, fly fish the high sierra lakes and rivers…and just think this is only a few suggestions to all the outdoor fun Tahoe has to offer, plus just 10 minutes away from Northstar skiing, hiking, and mountain biking, roller skating rink in the summer or the ice skating rink in the winter. Or better yet, do absolutely nothing and feel good about it!

Enjoy morning sun on the front and back porch, mid-day sun on the upstairs deck just outside the master suite, and late day sun on the back patio. Prepare your meals in the cozy country kitchen or BBQ on the back deck while enjoying the large landscaped backyard. Once the sun sets you can start a fire amidst the chimney (wood provided) for those cooler nights.

SNUGGLE IN THE queen-sized sleigh bed with the comforts of memory foam and quality linens UNDER the CUSTOM 20 FOOT OPEN BEAMED, CATHEDRAL CEILING in the large master suite. And enjoy the bright, NEWLY REMODELED MASTER BATH with HEATED PORCELAIN TILE FLOORS.

The intimate family room on the main floor has TV and a Blu-Ray with Wi-Fi DVD player with surround sound. Bring your Iphone or Ipod to hook up to stereo speakers with your USB cord. Stay warm on those cool nights with the convenience of the freestanding gas stove. This room can also function as a second separate sleeping area. The main floor bathroom has a SLATE WALK-IN SHOWER with a rain shower head.

Pictures are worth a thousand words, but so many more with a stay at our loving little cottage, come relax and enjoy.

For those looking for nightlife, the casinos, live music, and weekly comedy shows are just a $6 cab ride.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2008

          About the owner: We have been active VRBO renters for over a decade. This is our first home we have ever offered as a vacation rental. From our own experiences we know what we prefer on our little getaways and have done our best to provide those little things that can make a difference in your precious vacation time. We welcome you to enjoy the pleasures of the beautiful Sierras in our precious “Gingerbread Cottage”.

          Why the Owner Chose Kings Beach:
          We are California natives with homes overlooking the beautiful Russian River Valley and another in the midst of the lush Napa Valley; but there is nothing like smelling the crisp mountain air while skiing these world reknown slopes in the winter and spring or gliding on the cool waters of Lake Tahoe on a hot day. There is nothing like the relaxing feeling that the fresh Sierra mountain air does for you.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          Enjoy paddling on the lake in our kayaks. Relaxing in the afternoon sun on the upper deck. And cruising around town and the beach park on our bikes. And after a full day of outdoor fun getting a good nights sleep in a cozy bed under our unique 20 foot catheral ceilings.
