                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1980

                  About the owner: Our family supervised the building of this home and situated it so that there was room for families and friends to enjoy the most wonderful area at Lake Tahoe! Our home is close to everything, while being serene for relaxation and environment! Guests come back every year! We have several games for everyone, Tahoe books and a binder of information as well as comments regarding the numerous activities each month of the year! We have been renting to many of the same families since we built this home, and have a wonderful kitchen, stocked with a variety of spices, staples, etc. so you will be able to prepare fine meals! We will be happy to accommodate your special needs and provide whatever we can to assist you! (Please allow advance notice to enable us to ensure all your needs are met)

                  Why the Owner Chose Homewood:
                  LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. When selecting our lot we wanted to be within easy walking distance to the lake, yet far enough from the main highway so our children could play in a safe environment. With three access points to our home, we have never had to use chains! We are only 5 minutes from Homewood Mountain Ski Resort with additional ski resorts (Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley, Northstar and Granlibakken) within a 20-30 minute drive. Walking trails and bike path are very close to our home. The river rafting from Tahoe City to River Ranch is beautiful and you can dine at the restaurant and catch the River Ranch bus back to your car!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  If you are looking for great food, wide-ranging recreational opportunities, fine arts, a thriving cultural scene, starry skies and unsurpassed scenic vistas, all in a family and user friendly environment, Homewood is the place for you. *Private HOA on sandy beach 5 minutes away, buoys usually available with advance notice. *Sunnyside Restaurant/Bar with indoor/outdoor seating and BREATHTAKING views of Lake Tahoe just minutes away! Pull up to their dock in a boat! *Pacific Crest Trail head, Tahoe Rim Trail and Granite Chief Wilderness Area Trail heads are nearby, along with many snowmobile paths and bike trails! We provide a trail book for you to review. *Boat rentals a few minutes from the house at Homewood and Tahoe City. Great shopping centers in Tahoe City and Truckee allow you to shop till you drop, get pampered and enjoy a fabulous meal at one of the several restaurants! What more could you want?
