HOT TUB, POOL TABLE

This 6 bedroom, 3 bath Mountain home, sits on a beautiful meadow surrounded by pine trees. The back door exists out to the hiking trails that could start a great day of exploring in winter and summer.

Location, location, location. In the summertime, the open terrain becomes some of the best hiking and biking trails on the North Shore. You can access the trails at the home and go for miles. All the roads in the neighborhood dead end at trail heads. North National Park is walking distance to the house and offers Frisbee golf, ball fields, snowmobile rentals and much more. The Lake at Kings Beach is 2.5 miles away and has boat and kayak rentals. White, sandy beaches will remind you of being in Hawaii. Shopping and entertainment are here with casinos 3 miles away that will satisfy your thirst for nightlife. Crystal Bay Club is known for their music venues, and Cal Neva for their spa services. There is an abundance of restaurants and shops scattered up and down Kings Beach that will cater to your daytime or evening dining fancies.

In the wintertime… you are in the middle of the North Shore with easy access to the ski resorts. You are 4 miles to the entrance of Northstar which offers a great all-around skiing mountain, along with a new village with ice skating rink, shops and restaurants. Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley are minutes away and there is a short cut which eliminates dealing with traffic in Tahoe City. Diamond Peak and Mt Rose are 20 min away and offers less expensive skiing with specials and family pricing. Cross country skiing and snow shoeing are literally out the back door…and for those adventure enthusiasts, there is a multitude of snowmobiling rentals as close at 2 miles from the house.

This house has the space for a large family gathering, or group of friends. As you walk in the front door, you are greeted with a massive river rock fireplace, high A frame ceilings, pool table, windows looking out to the meadow, and open floor plan. The fireplace is wood and the vocal point of the room and everything faces it. Knotty pine paneling and stain glass accents surrounds the 'Great Room,' giving the space a true mountain feeling and smell. A large sectional and scattered ottomans faces the fireplace and entertainment center with HD SmartTV, stereo, and DVD player. A slider opens out to the top wrap-around deck with patio furniture and barbecue. Its great to sit out here and breath in the trees. From here you look over the beautiful meadow with tall pine trees and seasonal creek. The smell of the pines is mesmerizing. Below the upper deck, is a separate deck for the hot tub. Because the deck is level to the meadow, tenants have been known to jump out of the tub, make snow angles, then jump back in. The house is also on a gentle slope for sledding and snow play.This is the place on either deck to relax and enjoy the wildlife, and sounds of a forest.

Nicknamed the 'TreeHaus,' your view from all windows is of the towering pine trees and seasonal creek. A path in the meadow behind the house leads to North National Park which has ball fields, a Frisbee golf course, picnic areas, and hiking and biking trails. In the wintertime, bring your cross country ski's or snow shoes. The trails from the house are well used in both the summer and winter months.

This is a true Mountain Lodge with lots of nooks and cranny's to allow your family or friends to spread out comfortably. It is warm, inviting, and set up as a vacation rental.

The open living area has a pool table and a large dining room table, and kitchen. A well appointed kitchen with wrap-around counters, and breakfast bar that seats 5, allows for all to watch the chef cook. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the amenities you'll need for a weeks stay. The pool table is in the middle of the room and will allow you to play pool, while watching TV, looking at the fireplace, talking with the chef, or just listening to music.

Down the hall is a large laundry room, and bathroom that also connects to the large Master Bedroom. The Master Bedroom has a walk in closet, sliding glass door that exist's to the deck, TV, and is large enough to have another twin bed without feeling confined All the beds and bedding in the house is European style with extra pillows, 300 count sheets, bed throw and duvets. In the hallway are 2 sets of stairs. One leads to queen bedroom with its own bathroom, TV, and door exiting out to the meadow and hot tub. The hiking trails are within feet of the back door and the availability just to walk out into the trees, is special.

Up the stairs has 4 more bedrooms. First bedroom is an enclosed private loft with queen bed, and child's bed. This is next to a full bathroom. Down the hall is a spacious King bedroom,TV, with extra twin bed and lots of windows looking out to the meadow. There is extra floor space for the little ones here. Next to that room is a bunk room with TV, full size bottom and single top that adjoins to another large enclosed private loft bedroom with queen bed, TV,and 2 twins. The loft bedrooms are A frame and all have doors making them private bedrooms.

Want to bring your boat and need parking? No problem. There is a garage for your 'stuff' and lots of parking in the summertime both in the driveway and on the road.

Located on a cul de sac, you'll see more people walking their dogs in the street, than cars passing by. The neighborhood is a quiet pocket of homes surrounded by forest land. All the roads dead end at trails heads, yet its 2 miles from all the activities in Kings Beach.

Quiet, peaceful, comfortable, and special is the tone of this home. The decor is mountain lodge, which compliments the Tahoe feeling, and amenities and location should amplify your vacation stay. The furnishings compliment the 'Pine Lodge' decor. The open areas and high ceiling ,allow you to socialize with family or friends, without feeling closed in.

The house has all the amenities of home and more. Coffee service is provided for your first morning here. The furnishings are user friendly with plenty of seating for your family and friends. The location and amenities of this home makes this a great vacation home year-round.

Please note. The pictures were taken by a professional photographer who used a wide angle lens to include more of the different rooms.

Why owner/property manager chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

Love the neighborhood!!

What makes this house unique

I love where this is on the Lake. You are right in the middle of the North Shore, with easy access to all of Lake Tahoe. The Lake is 3 miles, casinos, 3.5, Northstar 4, Reno 35 minutes, and South Shore is 40 and FUN to go to in the summertime. Skiing is everywhere. I ski at Alpine and Squaw and to drive there from the house, I go the back way and eliminate all the traffic in Tahoe City. I can get there in 20 min's., and is an easy drive.

The restaurants and shops on the lake speak for themselves. But...Northstar is my new hangout! The Village is beautiful!

There is a big ice-skating rink surrounded by bars, tiki torches and outdoor couches with fire pits. Around this are shops and restaurants and then the ski lifts. It reminds be of Vail. In the summertime the ice becomes roller skating with the same ambiance.

You can't beat the neighborhood here. Walking the trails is a twice daily event. There are maintained by the forest service and easy to follow. You can walk to Agate bay, or even Tahoe City if so inclined. Because the area is just up from the Lake, most of the trails have panoramic views of the Lake.

The house is super comfortable and I love walking out the back door and being in the meadow with tall pines. The smell of the forest permeates the house and its quiet, peaceful, and visually soothing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our first trip to Lake Tahoe and we found this house to be the perfect setting for a family holiday. My wife and I travelled from the UK with our two daughters, aged 15 and 9, and couldn't have picked a better place to stay. The views from the decking were lovely in the winter and I would imagine they only get better as summer approaches. We REALLY enjoyed the setting here and being on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe. This was our first time using this site. The booking process couldn't have been easier, and the owner was very helpful in providing all the information we needed both before and during our stay. On our arrival we found the house to be spotlessly clean with facilities exactly as described in the listing. The kitchen was well stocked with a wide range of cooking utensils making family dinners simple to prepare. There were plenty of towels and sheets provided and all beds were very comfortable. I can also confirm that there are now blinds in the main bedroom but we left a couple open so that we could enjoy the lovely views! The house is a short drive from Kings Beach centre providing easy access to a wide range of restaurants and activites. We skied at Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, and Northstar and liked them all equally. The drive to all of the resorts was easy and fast, and we never hit traffic going into the resorts. At night is was fun to go to the casinos, even with the kids. There is a fun arcade at the Crystal Bay Club that kept them occupied while we lost on the penny machines. Close enough to all, but it was bliss to go back to the house and just hear the pines through the wind. There was no noise whatsoever. All in all a fantastic holiday made all the better by having such a helpful and courteous owner.

Map

Nearest Beach
2.5 Miles
Kings Beach

This house is in the middle of the Northshore and has easy access to all Lake Tahoe has to offer. 1.5 miles from the highway, getting around the Tahoe Basin is effortless. The drive around the Lake is breathtaking and you'll enjoy the different little towns that surround the Lake.

.

The house is in a quiet pocket of homes just up from the Lake at Kings Beach and on a cul de sac. All the homes here sit on a meadow with tall pine trees, and roads dead end at the hiking trails. Winter and summer they are used and maintained by the forest service. It borders the Tahoe Rim trail which is a destination for some with endless hiking trails you can access from the house. Brockway Summit is well know for its path to Tahoe City, and Watson Lake is worth hiking too. You can walk in the summertime to our neighborhood park, North National Park. The park encompasses approximately 124 acres of predominantly active recreational activities. An 18 par fitness course, ball fields, Frisbee Golf, playground are just a few options. In the wintertime they offer a nice sledding hill for tubing and snow fun. The house also had a small sleddding hill right into the yard when it snows enough for the little ones.

Within 20 min to all the ski resorts on the North Shore, Northstar in the closest and newest village. The village was modeled after Beaver Creek Colorado...cobblestone sidewalks, copper roofs and a multitude of restaurants and shops that line the 'square'. The square is an ice skating rink in the wintertime and roller skating in summer. The bon fire pits and outdoor bars are always there. Its a wonderful setting to hang out at especially at night. Skiing here is family orientated with lots of ski programs for all ages, and a pristine mountain that keeps a good grasp on good snow conditions.

If your staying a week, I highly recommend taking advantage of the other resorts also. You can drive the back way to Alpine and Squaw which eliminates the morning back up in Tahoe City. Both mountains have tons of excellent skiing, and mountain biking in the summertime. MT Rose is where to go for open terrain, Diamond Peak for kids and an easy day skiing. Both are 15 min to the house.

In the summertime, Kings Beach just down the street is a State Park with lifeguard and lake toys to rent. The beach is the highlight with wide sandy beaches, and views you have to experience to appreciate. There are also smaller beaches up and down the strip for reading a book, and dog beaches for your loved ones.

Brockway golf course in Kings Beach is a must for those that just want a good time. One of the top 9 hole courses in California, its known for its yardage and views. In the wintertime it becomes a snowmobiling park.

Tahoe City is 12 miles away and offers another nice city with shops, restaurants and outdoor venues. The Truckee River is our playground for fishing, river rafting, and bike baths to view all. A nice day is renting your bike in Tahoe City and riding to River Ranch. This is a river front restaurant with large outdoor patio at the entrance to Alpine Meadows. Here is where the river tours end and usually where the rafts have issues. You can spend the day here watching the rafters and enjoying their menu and drink.

Between the location , amenities of the house, and your favorite family or friends, you'll have a great home to stay at while getting a true Lake Tahoe experience.

Perfect for our family - and should be for yours

  • 5 of 5

We booked the Chalet last Aug and spent the time with 2 sets of grandparents. 4 kids aged 4mo - 13 yr and 5 adults 35 - 65. We are a big family! The house is set up perfectly for a group like ours. The teenagers were able to crash on their own level upstairs, watch TV and generally be out of our way as necessary, while we were able to enjoy the main floor. The exception to this was while the kids took on the grandparents at pool! Who knew grandma was so good! The hot tub was perfect as well! It is obvious that the owners of the Chalet have a pride of ownership, as everything was well stocked and the place was in great condition. We highly recommend this place for a group like ours and we decided it would be a great place for 3 families to share - something we intend on doing in the future.

LOVE Lake Tahoe!

  • 5 of 5

..and this was a great house to enjoy it in! Wonderful house and perfect for our family and friends. Our group of 14 had a great time soaking in the hot tub, hiking all day, and playing charades at night.

Plenty of space, great location and as advertised. The property caretaker was easily accessible and helped resolve an issue we encountered. We had a great week in Lake Tahoe and the house met all our expectations.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed the house and all the hiking walking distance to it. The views are pretty spectacular from the trail from Brockway Summit to Tahoe City. All these trails turn in to cross county and snow shooing in the winter time. I hope your group can visit again.

Great stay, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We are a large group of 15 adults and 2 kids, and we had a great time spending two nights in this spacious tree house. It's very close to Northstar Ski Resort and Kings Beach park. Will definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. Northstar is the closest resort but the house is within 20 minutes to Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley and Diamond Peak.
