About the property

4 bedrooms/3 Bath home on the River, Vacation in Style

This is a very unique property that is situated on the bank of the South Fork of the American River. Enjoy the constant soothing background sounds of running water with only steps to your own private swimming holes. This property is completely custom throughout without any expenses spared. There are three structures on the property and guests have full access to two of them during their stay.

The main house is cozy, spacious and elegant. There is a large living area with very comfortable seating for all your guests along with a cozy fireplace and large flat screen TV. There are two dining areas for extra seating and the kitchen opens up to the entire first floor so everyone can be connected while enjoying this property. All new appliances and a well stocked kitchen make it a joy to prepare your meals in style.

There are 3 bedrooms in the main house, one downstairs and two upstairs. The bedrooms are spacious and have individual heaters for your personal comfort. The beds and linens we provide are very comfortable and all the bedrooms are decorated in local style. It is very important to us that our guests have a unique and memorable experience and we have added decorations and amenities to match.

The back of the house hosts a large deck that overlooks the river with a custom BBQ Island, making this a great entertaining area. Just a few steps away and you are on the bank of the River!!

The property also hosts a detached apartment. This is a great living area that is separate, quiet and spacious. In the apartment there is a kitchen and custom bath as well as sleeping space for 4.

Sierra At Tahoe Ski Resort is not far from the house and South Lake Tahoe is about 30 minutes away. All around the area are trails and wilderness access points and the Pacific Crest National Trail is at the top of the Summit. We provide all our guests with area information so they can get the most out of their vacation. Anytime you need anything or have any questions, we are here to help.

** EDC is repairing the bridge behind the property during the summer of 2018. We don't anticipate it will affect our guests but if so we will do our best to accommodate.

Wow!! What a place. Everything we hoped for!!

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing property. The inside is very cozy and comfortable and there are a ton of extra comforts. We really enjoyed the river and there is a perfect swimming hole directly in the back yard. Dale was great and made sure we had everything we needed. We are definitely coming back.

Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Booked the house for the weekend with a group of friends and we absolutely LOVED IT. There was plenty of room for our group of 12, and it was nice to have the extra apt. The place is well furnished and very well stocked. The balcony was great for barbecuing. The house is right on the river, and the swimming hole was protected and calm enough to float on all day. It was also wide enough to get sun the whole day without the trees blocking, which I was initially worried about. Definitely bookmarking this property - we had the best time!

More than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with a mutigeneration family of 12, and everyone enjoyed their stay. The house was beautifully decorated and was equipped with everything we needed and some! The view of the river was gorgeous and the kids loved playing in the backyard next to the river (supervised of course). We had a great grilling all our meals on the custom BBQ grill while the kids watched the birds play in the trees and watching the river flow. Such a relaxing time and would highly recommend this place.

Loved the House, Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at this property. It was very obvious that the owners spent a lot of time decorating this house, everything is new and nice. There was 10 of us in our group and The house had plenty of room for everyone. The separate studio was especially nice, It gave my parents their own space. The house sits right on the river and Sierra at Tahoe is just up the road. We can't wait to return the summer to enjoy swimming in the river!!
