Handicap Access
This home is fairly accessible for those with limited mobility since there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms on the main level. The main entrance has 2 steps to enter the home. Once you are on the main level, there is a living room, TV, kitchen, dining area, BBQ, and 55 foot deck with amazing views.

You walk in the front door and straight ahead is the large living room with lots of comfy couches, table seating for 6 and a TV with DirecTV, DVD player. Next to the TV is a wood burning stove and we provide the wood. It is very rare to find homes in Tahoe with real wood burning stoves and fireplaces since a rule came out over 6 years ago that fireplaces must be removed when a home is sold. I bought this house before that rule so I am able to keep the wood stove and fireplace. There are large double paned windows facing the mountain and meadows in this room. The sliding glass door leads you out to the large 55 foot deck with picnic table seating for 18 and a high quality BBQ. The views of the mountains and meadow are amazing and you can see coyotes, birds, chipmunks and sometimes a beaver running around.

On the right side of the deck is a door that leads into the master suite with a queen bed, seating, and ensuite bathroom. You can also enter this private master suite through the garage. Off of the upstairs living room is a hallway which leads you to a bathroom with a shower/tub on the left, a queen bedroom on the right, a king bedroom on the right and then a second master bedroom on the left with a king bed, TV, DirecTV service, and a private bathroom with shower.

Off of the upstairs living room is the open kitchen and dining seating for 12. The kitchen was recently remodeled with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and new sink. Continue through the kitchen and walk down the stairs to the lower level. You will enter the billiards room with a large pool table. On the right are three bedrooms with queen beds. After you pass the billiards room, there is a large bathroom on the left with a shower. Continue down the hallway and you will enter the great room with a large TV with DirecTV, DVD player, DVD library, wet bar, bar stools, shuffleboard table, large cozy fireplace and I provide the wood.

Pass this room and you will enter the sunroom. There is a foosball table, ping pong table, couches and great views. To the right is a large bedroom with 2 full beds. There is a sliding glass door that leads outside to the hot tub. This hot tub was recently purchased and has lots of jets. Around the corner from the hot tub is the wood room. The driveway can fit 4 cars and 2 cars can fit in the garage. In the garage is a storage room for skis, boards, poles, boots, etc.

I love when guests are able to stop by and view the home. I live in San Francisco but I drive up to Tahoe once a week to bring supplies, fix things, monitor construction projects in the home, etc. You can call me on my cell phone and arrange a time to view the home. I am only able to give tours when the homes are empty as I am sure you would not want guests viewing the home when you are occupying the house.

Snow Removal
I have a company that plows the driveway when there is more than 5 inches of snow. Remember to bring chains when traveling in the Sierras and bring extra food and water in your car.

Vacation Rental by Owner
My name is Charles Seidel and I am the owner of this vacation rental home in South Lake Tahoe. If you are looking to rent a home in Tahoe, I recommend finding a private owner instead of using one of the agencies. Private owners take care of their homes much better than the large rental agencies since they care more. I live in San Francisco but I drive up to Tahoe about 3-4 times per month to check on my homes, fix any problems, buy new furniture, and bring up supplies.

                      The Ormsby house is centrally located in a quiet neighborhood. The back side of the house overlooks a creek, meadow, and a view of the surrounding Sierra Mountains. It is located only a few miles from all of the attractions such as the beautiful blue Lake Tahoe, Heavenly Ski Resort, Harrah's Casino and more. You can go shopping in the Village, take a long bike ride, go on a quiet hike, or more, again, only a few miles from the house. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us anytime at (415) 505-2525.


                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: My name is Charles Seidel and I am a private owner - not an agency. You can call me anytime on my cell phone with questions about this home. The availability calendar is updated regularly. If this home is booked, you can still call or email about availability. I have other vacation homes in the area and I also have friends who have similar sized homes that may fit your needs.

                      Why the Owner Chose Other South Lake Tahoe Properties:
                      I bought this property because I love the large space, the location, and the pleasant residential neighborhood. Yet when you are in the home, you forget you have neighbors because of the great view out the back. I also love that this house has a natural wood burning stove upstairs and a natural wood burning fireplace upstairs. It is rare to find a home these days in Tahoe with those features. Because of new ordinances, when houses are sold now in Tahoe, the home owner has to remove the fireplace or replace it with a gas fireplace. I think this house is great for large groups since there are a lot of common areas. The upstairs living room has the wood stove and TV. Downstairs there is the living room with fireplace, a large flat screen TV, and a bar. We have a pool table, and in the sundeck area a foosball table and ping pong table. And, there is a large 55 foot deck perfect for BBQ. Below in the back yard, we have a hot tub where you can sit back and relax with a tranquil view of the surrounding Sierra Mountains. (Great way to end a fun day!)

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      I love this house because of the fantastic view off the back deck. I like that you can do small hikes right out the back door. Heavenly Ski resort and the casinos like Harrah's are only about 2 miles away. This house is great for a large groups of people that want to stay someplace simple and just be together. It provides a Tahoe cabin feel and is great for family vacations.
