The North Lake Tahoe State-line Fire lookout Trail is only a 15 minute walk uphill for the most fabulous 270 degree view of Lake Tahoe you'll ever experience! I've seen Bald Eagles and para-gliders flying here, and heavenly views that go beyond description.
Formerly known as "Bucks Beach." This small enclave hosts the most spectacular white sand rock/boulder ringed lagoon type beach at North Lake Lake Tahoe and the whole of lake Tahoe itself. Not to be missed!
If you boulder, then the Crystal Bay Boulders are for You! This small neighborhood is home to some of the best problems in North Lake Tahoe! Be courteous of the home owners as some of these gems lie on private property....
In North lake Tahoe, Martis Peak Lookout's views are hard to surpass, as you are awarded stellar views of Martis Valley, Lake Tahoe, and North Star. Can be driven to in the summer and Snowshoed, Skied, or Snowmobiled to in the winter.
Located 2 minutes from our home, Sandy Beach is just that: a white sand beach, where you can wade forever, before its over your head. Because of it being relatively shallow, the water here is warmer than most other locations around the lake. And in the spring and summer months, wild-flowers grow profusely here!
A BEAUTIFUL GOLDEN SANDY BEACH IS 2 MINUTES AWAY. It is VERY KID FRIENDLY! They can wade out quite a ways before it becomes deep. Our daughter (now 11) LOVES it, and has since she was a toddler! Awesome Hiking, Mountain Biking, Snowmobiling & Dirt Bike Trail Rides (Motorcycle) from the doorstep of this North Lake Tahoe Vacation Rental!
NORTHSTAR is only 9 miles away.

About the owner: I am a 2nd. Generation Master Builder, Architect, and a very happy father to Kylie.
I began my career very early under the mentor-ship of my father, Robert Hopp. I started working with my father at an early age, always knowing I would grow up to design and build the best and most beautiful homes, remodels and additions possible.
Bob, as most people called him, had a very strong work ethic. He took a great deal of pride in the work he did for others, always putting forth his best efforts and treating people fairly. Whether it was building a bench or turning out a 100,000+ sq. ft. industrial complex, his “do it right & get it done” attitude built him a reputation that preceded his arrival on the job site that wasn’t measured in minutes, but by miles.
Clients who hired him knew in advance that when he made them a promise, he fulfilled that promise. And what I remember, most of all is that he loved it. Every minute of it! He loved the challenge of “getting it done - on time, and done right.” He was gregarious and hard working, almost to a fault. He loved to entertain. Current events, political commentary, and conversation were probably second only to his love of the written word. And his love for the written word was eclipsed only by the love we saw demonstrated towards Lois, his wife and my mother. He did so much for his family, and friends. Because his parents left this world when he was still very young, he understood, first-hand, how important family is, what it means to have one, and be part of it. As it is said, “The fruit doesn’t fall far from the tree,” and I gleaned many wonderful attributes from working with dad.
These are the cornerstones, from which I fashion my life, the business, and fatherhood.
Outdoor mountain sports, woodworking, and poetry are my avocations.
