                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About the owner: I grew up in the Canada and came to live in the Bay Area. I love animals and the best part of owning a house is having a dog. Now I have a Tahoe house that will make us all happier.

                  Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Vista:
                  The layout is great and the vaulted wood ceiling makes it so special. It's the perfect setting to relax and a great base to ski, hike, go to the beach, bike...

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  It is literally a breath of fresh air to walk out of the door with my dogs and a coffee in my hand. The National Forest and the Tahoe Rim trail is in my backyard so I can just leave the coffee cup on the deck and keep on walking!
