Tahoe Keys house description

Affordable, comfortable single-family home sleeps up to 10. Remodeled within last 5 years - newer kitchen, carpets, windows, and roof. Very comfortable and close to skiing (6 miles), clubs, and only a short walk to the Lake.

Two story A-frame house with floor-to-ceiling glass windows in rear - beautiful views. Relax on the hardwood porch while you watch gorgeous sunsets behind Mount Tallac.

Lagoon access to lake. Note that we do rent our dock to a local fishing guide so make arrangements in advance if you need to dock a boat. Our dock tenant is willing to share when needed but I need to make arrangements well in advance. He does have 24x7 access to the dock. He usually departs early in the morning and returns in the late afternoon when he has customers. Very quiet and will not disturb folks.

Plenty of room to stretch out and feel right at home. A shangri-la in the mountains. Rent a bike and glide down the nearby Tahoe Bike Trail. Or check out the Fallen Leaf Lake nearby (about 15 min. drive).

Upstairs loft has three beds: 1 king and 2 doubles (opens to atrium patio). Downstairs: 1 king in master, queen bed in one guest room, and a double in the second quest room. 2-car garage attached to house.

Wood-burning fireplace, interior fans and central heating (no A/C). Indoor washer/dryer. Cable TV. Fully stocked kitchen with most items to cook complete meals.

Tahoe Keys also issues guest passes (daily fee applies) to indoor pool, tennis courts, and outdoor pool (during summers).

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1966

              About the owner: My family has owned our house since the Keys was originally built (my father was the general manager for the Keys when it was developed by Dillingham Corp.). I grew up at the Lake and love returning often. Our house always offers a respite from the craziness of life and a chance to escape to the mountains and fresh air. I love the Keys for its easy access to the lake, ski slopes, hiking, fishing, camping, and swimming.

              Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Keys:
              Our house has been passed down from parent to children. We care a lot about our house and want others to feel right at home. It's a comfortable, cheery house to be in. You will fall in love with Tahoe if you've never visited before - or, if you are returning - you know the hold this area has on folks. Enjoy our little slice of heaven.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We love the views of Mount Tallac from our backyard. It's just a blast to sit out back with your cup 'o joe and enjoy the mornings - or the cool afternoons with a favorite beverage in your paws. Relax and read a good book or play games on a cold, winter day by the fireplace - or tramp around outside with the kids and make snow forts! We enjoyed all of these activities when we were growing up here.
