Squaw Valley (Olympic Valley) house description

When the snow falls in Squaw Valley, there's no cozier place to enjoy it all than from this five-bedroom Olympic Valley retreat! This historic property is second oldest structure in Squaw Valley. Another fun fact? The 1960 Olympic high jump was filmed from right here. No matter if you're planning a friends and family ski vacation or a getaway to hike and bike around stunning Lake Tahoe in the summer, you'll love this stylishly rustic home-away-from-home.

With all of the living space on one level, there's room for everyone to spread out here. The living room and dining room are open, making conversations about the day easy, no matter where everyone is settled in. From here, you'll be surrounded by stylish mountain ambiance, including hand-hewn wood beams and original pine paneling.

Right in front of a roaring fire is a prime spot to relax, maybe even with a mug of hot cocoa or a hot buttered rum in hand. You can pull a book down from the well-stocked shelves and spend the evening reading while the snow comes down outside. When you're not out skiing or hiking, watch a DVD, the big game on cable, or just use the WiFi to check email or plan the next day's adventures.

From the wrap-around deck with views of the valley and ski slopes, you can watch the winter wonderland through the tall pine trees. In spring or summer, relax with a mint julep on sunny afternoons, or just breathe in that fresh mountain air year-round.

Back inside, there's both a large rectangular table and a smaller round one to fit everyone in at meal times. Right by the windows, both spots offer a prime view out the large windows. Just off the large table, you'll find the well-stocked kitchen. Packed with everything you'll need to feed a group of hungry vacationers, this space has beautiful slate tile floors, brick-faced walls, and more wood beamed ceilings. Stir up a big pot of pork and white bean stew on a chilly night or mix up a giant spinach salad after a full day of hiking the area.

The king bedroom is arranged all nice and cozy with snuggly plaid bedding, bedside tables, reading lights, and a big closet for storing luggage. There's even a crib provided for younger guests. Two other bedrooms each have a full sized bed, colorful bedding, and aesthetically pleasing accessories.

The last two bedrooms are perfect for the younger guests - one has two twin beds, and the other a set of twin bunk beds. Four full bathrooms are conveniently located throughout the space. At this home, you'll be able to sleep 12 guests comfortably. And if you get your clothes dirty while out exploring the area, there's even a washer and dryer available for guest use! Please note that the caretakers live in the upstairs of the property.

During winter stays, you'll find it's possible to walk to the lifts at Squaw Valley from here, especially if you're looking for a little pre-ski exercise. Once at Squaw Valley, you'll enjoy some of the up to 450 inches of annual snowfall and over 3,600 acres to explore on your skis or snowboard. And, if you feel like mixing it up a bit, the lifts at Alpine Meadows Ski Resort are only a 15 minute drive away as well.

In nice weather, the Tahoe paved bike path extends length of valley and connects Squaw Valley with Tahoe City and West Shore multi-use paths. And of course, there's vibrant blue Lake Tahoe. Pack the car and make the 15 minute drive to nearby Tahoe City for some beach time. Walk along the shore, go swimming, boating, you can even take a scenic cruise filled with stunning photo opportunities at every turn.

On nights you don't feel like staying in for meals, the Village at Squaw Valley offers a number of options for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or an apres ski snack. With over 20 eateries, you're sure to find something to satisfy. And right on the mountain, you can pick from two lodges offering everything from crepes, snacks, fine dining at the Terrace Restaurant and Bar - there's even a well-known coffee retailer for a steaming hot latte or chocolatey cafe mocha.

Please be aware that the upper level of this property is rented out separately to long-term tenants, but you'll still enjoy plenty of space, peace, and quiet in this completely self-contained Tahoe vacation rental!

Whether you come to Olympic Valley for skiing, hiking and biking in the great outdoors, or fun in the sun out on Lake Tahoe, this cozy and warm vacation home is a great home base for your California mountain adventure.
