Property description

My sister, Jo and I, with our husbands, Roy and Steve, have sold our TT condo and Steve and I are taking the leap into owning a home of our own! We found just the right place and plan to share as a rental for a few weeks in summer and another few in the winter

During snowy weather, history is, our road is first plowed, being on the southernmost edge of Placer County! Plus, our property is flat with lots of off street parking, which will be cleared for your arrival. Homewood Ski area is less than a mile away and Alpine and Squaw about 12 miles. Shuttle stops approx 1/2 mi away at front gate of Chambers. Tahoe City is a quaint winter wonderland with cozy, fabulous eateries and fun shopping. and a sledding hill. Quiet area makes nice walks to lake or hikes to the west! Snow shoes or cross country skis avail to use in deep snow. Road to Tahoe City takes you through Homewood, Tahoma, Chambers and Sunnyside each with their small time charm but serious, quality amenities.

During the summer, the fun can be lakeside, on mountain trails, or biking north or south for miles. Boat rentals, jet skis, rafting, tubing, sailing, parasailing, and other water sports are available in Homewood, 2 min away and a kayak is avail at cabin.

Our cabinis very clean and features a nice Tahoe-style feeling. It has forest views and a private setting. The fully-equipped kitchen has been updated with new appliances and furnishings are very good to superior throughout. A large pine dining table seats eight and there are three TVs, a DVD, High Speed WiFi, an open fireplace, washer, dryer, outdoor gas grill on a large deck with picnic table, benches, and outdoor furniture. Clean linens are provided for every rental. Hot tub is being installed soon.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: My sister and I, Jo and Liz, with our husbands, Roy and Steve, sold our condo at Tahoe Tavern after 19 yrs. Steve and I took the leap of owning our own home on the west shore where my family owned a home nearby for 15 years before that. We snow and water ski (or used to) and now sharing and passing along the family fun to our two sons and their impending families. We invite renters to enjoy our new home!

Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Tavern:
We all love the West and North Shore of Tahoe the best! From our place you are central and can easily enjoy the West, North and South Shores and Truckee even the back country of Desolation Valley. In the Summer, you are .05mi from Chambers Beach, pier, bar and restaurant. In the winter, you are less than a mile to Homewood. Tahoe City is 8 mi, with some of Tahoe's finest dining establishments, Wolfdahl's, Christy Hill and Jake's. Don't forget Sunnyside, Tahoe House, Swiss Lakewood and Firesign restaurants, local and tourist favorites on the West Shore! Tahoma Market is less than a mile for all your grocery shopping/deli needs and local pizza parlor there too! The walk to Chambers pier for the sunset on the lake is unbeatable.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Our cabin has a large deck off the dining room and kitchen, and a horseshoe pit is being planned for backyard... so is a hot tub, so keep tuned in. Serene setting, spacious, open floorplan, clean, new appliances, group gathering area upstairs, quiet bedrooms downstairs. Exceptional ease in access even in winter with lots of snow on the ground, 4-6 parking spaces, road supposedly cleared early morning as snowplows in Placer County have McKinney Rubicon Springs Road first on their list! We keep you updated during snow!
