Property description

Enjoy this charming North Lake Tahoe luxury vacation mountain home, Rawhide Retreat, nestled among the trees on Tahoe’s Magical North Shore. The home is located in a quiet and peaceful residential area. The sweet sounds of birds chirping in the mornings and evenings are a joy to the ears of guests and residents alike.

Walking distance to Tahoe City for groceries, shopping and great restaurants, Rawhide Retreat is the perfect vacation accommodation for you and your family. Leave your car parked for the duration of your stay; you can get around easily without it. 
This tastefully furnished, 5 bedroom, 3 bath home has all you will need to enjoy a perfect vacation! There is also a game room that all are sure to enjoy. The house has a renovated back yard with a large patio and Bocce Court next to the Jacuzzi.

The vaulted, knotty pine ceilings and large gas fireplace, appoint the warm and spacious great room, making it the perfect place to gather with friends and family. Rawhide Retreat has an open living room, kitchen and dining area that have been renovated, making it a very social area. There is a gorgeous gas fireplace w/ 40' TV in front of comfy leather sofas, and radiant heat slate floor. Both the living area and kitchen have large adjoining decks for indoor/outdoor entertaining. The two sunny decks are furnished with dining table, lounge chairs and a gas BBQ. The 8-person Hot Tub is enclosed in the private back yard. The open kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need. The dining room accommodates 10 people comfortably; it is a great space for family meals or that holiday feast!
 Downstairs is the game room, with a foosball table, TV, and DVD player, perfect for entertaining the children while the adults socialize upstairs in the Great Room. 
As you relax in the hot tub in a private back yard, you are only steps away from biking and hiking trails (located just at the end of the street), and the best ski resorts!

In winter months, enjoy world-class downhill skiing at Squaw Valley USA and Alpine Meadows Ski Resort, each less than a 15-minute drive. Or, drive 5 miles down the West Shore to Homewood Ski Resort to beat the traffic and crowds, and enjoy breathtaking lake views. The cross-country ski trails of Granlibakken resort are minutes from the front door.

Rawhide Retreat is 3 blocks from the lake. In the summer months, enjoy nearby access to boat ramps, beaches and swimming, boat, kayak, and jetski rentals, and the North Tahoe bike path. Commons Beach, in downtown Tahoe City, provides movies and music in the summer. Rawhide Retreat provides easy access to Page Meadows Trail for hiking or mountain biking. The bike path to Tahoe City and the Truckee River is within 2 blocks.

You will have a wonderful time, any season, at this great family getaway. 
There are five bedrooms, each sleeping two people. Two bedrooms have private bathrooms. Linens and towels are provided. 

3 bedrooms upstairs: 1 King w/ bath, 1 Queen, 2 Twins.

2 adjoining bedrooms downstairs: 1 King w/bath, 1 King

There is parking for 4 cars (1 garage space and 3 driveway spaces), as well as space for a small boat (next to the driveway).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We love to be outdoors, whether it be going for a trail run, hiking, camping, biking, swimming, downhill skiing or back country skiing.

Why the Owner Chose Tahoe City:
We purchased this home so we could be in the middle of it all - right in Tahoe City, without the need to drive everywhere.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the fact that our house is so close to all that we love to do. There are hiking (in the spring/summer/fall) and skiing (in the winter) trails just at the end of our street, and top ski resorts just minutes away from our door. Not to mention gorgeous Lake Tahoe, the Truckee River and the bike path that starts steps from our door and runs along the river. The great part about our place is that you can walk right into town and go on many adventures- without even having to drive your car!
