Christmas Valley 1 house description

The house location is a 'local's secret' due to its quiet, tranquil settings. This neighborhood community is known as Christmas Valley. The house is close to major resorts and casinos yet just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of South Shore tourism. The jaw-dropping beauty of Lake Tahoe itself and its west shore beaches are 10-15 minutes depending on your favorite spot. Summer fun offers hiking and biking trails within minutes of the property. Golfing at Lake Tahoe Golf Course and Paradise Golf are within 10 minutes in one direction or drive approximately 15 minutes the other direction to go fishing in Hope Valley.

Winter enjoyment provides both downhill and X-country skiing nearby and the kids can sled right in the backyard. Winter ski areas known around the world include Sierra at Tahoe (15 minutes), Heavenly Valley (20 minutes), and Kirkwood (25 minutes).

House backs to forest service land and you can start your hike and/or the kids can climb plenty of rocks right up the hill from the backyard. The house sits in a residential neighborhood that is safe for kids to ride bike. 2-car garage is available for your use so bring all your ‘fun’ gear and lock it up safely as you go from one recreational activity to another and not worry about storing it all in your car. Once your day of adventure is over, spend quality family time playing cards, games, or watching DVD’s in the cozy living room, or send the kids upstairs for tv time and adults can visit without interruption.

In spring of 2013 house renovated with new downstairs bath, new flooring, and fresh interior paint. Sleeping for 8 is provided. 6 people can sleep comfortably in beds with 2 additional people on a futon. The downstairs has 2 bedrooms (queen bed in one and 2 twin beds in the other) with a renovated bathroom. The upstairs is one large room with a queen bed, a sitting area with a futon and a t.v, plus a second full bath.

Kitchen is equipped for easy cooking so just bring your favorite spices, food, and favorite beverages. Crockpot, microwave, roasting pan, and large stock pot makes for creating meals a snap. Other basic pots/pans are also available. Washer/dryer available for your use and detergent is provided.

                  The jaw-dropping beauty of Lake Tahoe itself and its west shore beaches are 15-20 minutes depending on your favorite spot. Summer fun offers hiking and biking trails within minutes of the property. Golfing at Lake Tahoe Golf Course and Bejou Golf are within 10 minutes in one direction or drive approximately 15 minutes the other direction to go fishing in Hope Valley.

                  Winter enjoyment provides both downhill and X-country skiing nearby and the kids can sled right in the backyard. Winter ski areas known around the world include Sierra at Tahoe (10 minutes), Heavenly Valley (20 minutes), and Kirkwood (30 minutes).

                  Our personal favorites are hiking Horsetail Falls (20 minutes west on Hwy 50) or relaxing at Emerald Bay (25 minutes on west shore of lake). Hope Valley is gorgeous and is total different scenery then what you see by the lake.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Why the Owner Chose Christmas Valley 1:
                  We love the 'in Tahoe but not all the traffic' location of our house. With the house right up against forest land, we love that our backyard is natural and open to nature.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  One benefit of this location is that it is close to Hope Valley. Many people visit the area for the lake but completely miss out on the beauty of the valley. This property is also unique in that it splits the travel time between Heavenly and Kirkland Ski Resorts.
