Property description

Life on the river is truly amazing! Rays Riverfront Retreat is a 2,700 sq ft newly updated home on a large acre lot backing up to the Upper Truckee River. Come enjoy the large private swimming hole directly behind the home. Sit on the deck looking out to the river and enjoy gorgeous mountain, river and meadow views. The home is centrally located between all three major south shore ski areas: Kirkwood, Heavenly, Sierra at Tahoe and three great golf courses. Just a short drive to the nightlife, gambling and world class entertainment provided at Stateline by Harvey's, MontBleu, Harrah's and the Horizon Casino.

The home features 5 spacious bedrooms; including two master bedrooms with king beds and private baths, two bedrooms with queen beds (one with an additional single bed), one room with single bunk beds and a large loft with a sofa/queen bed. The 3.5 newly remodeled baths include dual head showers, jetted tub and heated floor. The home uses a high efficiency tankless water heater. (Never run out of hot water!) There is a large garage and large driveway for four additional cars. A large deck overlooks the grassy backyard leading to the river.

Come home to a warm log fireplace after a great day of Lake Tahoe recreation. The large dining room table expands to seat 10 and the kitchen includes all the amenities of home. Ray's Riverfront Retreat is the true embodiment of the Lake Tahoe lifestyle.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I have been skiing around Tahoe for over 35 years. A couple of years ago, my family and I realized a longtime dream of owning a vacation home in Lake Tahoe. When looking for this home, we wanted a place that felt like a peaceful mountain retreat. Our family loves the outdoors and all the fun recreation that goes with it; and this vacation home let's us enjoy all of it. We have put a lot of love and effort into upgrading the house into a comfortable and welcome place to enjoy. We hope you enjoy it too.

Why the Owner Chose Christmas Valley 1:
When we found this property on the Upper Truckee River, we knew we found the right place. It is a beautiful property with a historic ranch on the other side of the river and awesome mountain, river and meadow views. This house is not crammed onto a small lot like so many homes in Tahoe. This home is on an acre with a big deck that overlooks the large grassy area next to the river. We also chose this area because the property is close to Kirkwood, Heavenly and Sierra at Tahoe ski areas. All the amenities of South Lake Tahoe are also nearby.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Swimming in the river and just hanging out and enjoying the beautiful scenery without having to drive anywhere. The beautiful beaches of Lake Tahoe are a short drive. Skiing and snowboarding at Kirkwood, Heavenly, and Sierra at Tahoe ski resorts. Backcountry skiing, snowmobiling, hiking, biking (Mr. Toad's Wild Ride mountain bike trail is nearby), golfing, all the recreation a mountain enthusiast could want. Fall colors in Hope Valley are just 10 minutes away.
