Zephyr Cove house description

Rent this Large House at Lake Tahoe
Short Walk to Lake, Near Casinos & Ski Areas

Perfect For Your Family Vacation or Reunion!

5 Bedrooms · 3 Bathrooms · Large Hot Tub · 2,400 square feet
Comfortably Accommodates 14 People · High Speed Internet & Wireless Router

2013 Improvements: In August, we replaced the kitchen stove with a GE Cafe Dual-Fuel oven/range. We installed a new Frigidaire refrigerator w/icemaker in January. The old refrigerator still works, so we placed it in the garage for extra capacity.

We also recently installed new sliding glass doors to the upper deck, new patio table, and updated living room windows by the fireplace.

Vacation home with everything Lake Tahoe has to offer!

This vacation home is on the Nevada side of the lake, a short walk (2-5 minutes) to the lake and Zephyr Cove Resort (Tahoe's most popular public beach, M.S. Dixie II cruise ship & watercraft rental). Just 4 miles north of South Lake Tahoe gaming casinos (Harrah's, Horizon, Harvey's), 15 minutes from Heavenly ski area, 1 mile from Sam's (a favorite for beer and pizza), and 1/2 mile south of Zephyr Cove Park (library, lit tennis courts, picnic areas, and fitness courses). Plenty of National Forest trails in the area for hiking, biking, and cross-country skiing.

'Our mission is to provide a wonderful home for your vacation, and to exceed your expectations of value and quality. If we do this, you will enjoy your stay at Lake Tahoe and will come back again. This is important to us, because repeat customers are our best customers.' -- Maria & Bob Tarn

We are a Pet Free & Smoke Free Home, Please.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1993

                  About the owner: Bob is a mechanical engineer and Maria is a paralegal. They enjoy their family gatherings at the lake, and hope that their 3 sons, daughter-in-law, and grandson will continue to use the house at Zephyr for their family gatherings for many, many years to come.

                  Why the Owner Chose Zephyr Cove:
                  We spent a family vacation at Zephyr Cove, Lake Tahoe, in the summer of 1991, and fell in love with the family-oriented and clean environment. Before we left that week, we were looking at property, and bought this perfect vacation home after a year and a half of searching for the right property. We hope to retire here one day. In the meantime, maintaining and improving the property is our labor of love.
