Overview

About the property

Partial Lake View, 4 Bdrms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 14*, Private Beach, Garage

This elegant, newly-built mountain retreat is located on the colorful and traditional West Shore, in the serene Talmont area, with membership to the private Tahoe Park Beach Club. The idyllic setting offers tranquility and privacy, but as our home is only 2.5 miles west of Tahoe City, you will also appreciate the shopping and dining convenience it affords.

Surrounded by multiple forested conservancy lots on three sides, this welcoming 2500+ square foot home offers privacy, a filtered peek of the lake and an expansive tree top view. It is very tastefully decorated, newly appointed throughout, and fully and thoughtfully equipped, assuring your vacation relaxation.

Our home is lovingly furnished with comfort and quality in mind. We regard it as our beloved second home, as opposed to a rental income property! We gladly open our home to others and appreciate the fact that our guests will show it the same respect that we do.

We have furnished our mountain retreat with cherished antiques, family heirlooms, and warm hand-made and custom-made furniture, along with new beds and linens.

We offer 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, and a fold out Queen-size sofa. Our home boasts knotty pine cathedral ceilings, knotty pine custom cabinets and trim throughout, granite kitchen and bath counters, along with wood and slate flooring.

The entry is showcased by a wide staircase accented with hand-carved pine railings, leading up or down to either of the two living areas.

Upstairs, the main living/dining/kitchen area is airy and expansive, featuring two decks, overlooking the forest. The large, leather sectional is flanked by club chairs, providing a comfortable sitting area.

You’ll enjoy a flat-screen, HD TV, which is highly maneuverable to allow for utmost viewing options– it has a Blue Ray DVD and an extensive cable package with music stations, along with an option to plug in your own iPod, or your computer for viewing your vacation photos. Unlimited free high-speed Internet access is provided. In addition, we have installed an Apple TV device, which will allow you to rent movies and more via your own account with Netflix and/or iTunes.

The upper floor hosts the spacious and luxurious master bedroom featuring a Californian King bed and master bathroom, with Jacuzzi soaking tub and enclosed glass shower. A half bath is located off the living area and a charming ceiling fan provides a gentle, refreshing breeze on summer evenings.

Downstairs, the family room is a perfect gathering area for youngsters– young and old–a leather sectional faces a large TV, with DVD, and VCR. Leading off the family room are three bedrooms and one full bath: one bedroom features a queen bed, another has a full-size bunk bed, with full-size trundle (this room can sleep up to six children) and an antique desk, the other bedroom has two twin beds. In addition, the sectional in the downstairs living area holds a queen-size foldout bed.

You’ll love our private beach club 1 mile down the road! Charming Tahoe Park is one of the most popular beaches on the lake, offering over three acres of beach front living. It boasts a lovely beach, little nooks sheltering private sitting and dining areas, grass areas surrounded by gardens and shaded by towering pines, BBQs with tables and benches, piers, kayak access, shuffleboard, volleyball, horseshoes, basketball, a children’s playground and restrooms. Relax in privacy and enjoy a lake front BBQ! Google their website for photos and more info- 'Lake Tahoe Park Association'.

Next door to Tahoe Park Beach, sip cocktails on the lakeside deck of festive Sunnyside Resort, while watching the sun set over the lake and boaters pull in after a day on the lake. You’ll savor the breakfasts at the nearby Firesign Café.

Paige Meadows, with its a huge network of superb hiking and mountain biking trails, is only steps away from our mountain home. Lake Tahoe is renowned for it’s natural beauty and numerous outdoors activities including river rafting, extensive hiking and biking (on both paved and dirt paths), fishing, swimming, boating, and all manner of water sports.

Best of all is just relaxing on the beach or a reading a good book while lounging on our decks, enjoying the pine-scented mountain air!

Our kitchen is very well-equipped; the dining table expands to seat ten, with additional seating for four at the kitchen island. You’ll enjoy a gas Webber BBQ, clothes washer and dryer, and garage parking for one car. Additional outdoor parking is also available.

We welcome you to our tree-top mountain home! Please check in for updated photos, as we are improving our home at every opportunity!

About Janine Dickenson

We have owned a cabin in Tahoe for over 20 years- an older cabin and now this new one. Owning a cabin has provided us a with a delightful venue, allowing us to spend quality time with our family and each other.

Janine Dickenson purchased this house in 2008

Why Janine Dickenson chose Lake Tahoe West Shore CA

We have looked on the West Shore for years in search of a more private cabin than our first one. This particular aspect is an overwhelming priority for us, perhaps simply because our primary residence is also very private, and it is what we are accustomed to. Of course, along with privacy, everything thing else about it had to be just what we wanted- if not, we were plenty happy with our older cabin. When we discovered this property, we knew it was prefect for us!

What makes this house unique

Located in an upscale neighborhood, our mountain home is private, quiet, and surrounded by forested conservancy lots, and offers a filtered, treetop lake view. Of quality construction only several years old, it is thoughtfully and tastefully furnished, appointed and maintained. Families will appreciate the downstairs family room when entertainment tastes differ among varying age groups. You'll experience great walking, hiking and biking year round at nearby Paige Meadows. Our private beach is delightful for all age groups- stake out your little nook on the shady lawn, reserve a table for a barbeque, or opt for tanning on the beach. Tahoe Beach Park activities include horseshoes, volleyball, basketball and a playground for the tots. The private beach will prove to be an even more valuable asset, should our nearby state parks close for public use. Our location allows for your choice of vacation options- nonstop outdoor activities and convenient dining, or cozy cocooning.

Great

  • 4 of 5

We had fun! Husbands 60th birthday celebration!

Great location

Doesn't sleep 10-12 unless you have kids but 8 adults were comfortable each having a room!

No lake view though but very nicely decorated!

Owner's Response: Delighted you had a blast! I hope we made it clear about the sleep/bedroom situation (all info is online.) Mostly we rent to families, one family, extended family or two families– it is perfect for two families! We converted one bedroom into a triple double bunk bed that can sleep 6 kids. So, it makes a great sleepover party bedroom for 4-6 (little) kids, all together in one room! Regrets to the adult couple who drew the short straw for the bunkbed room! (grin)... At least it was private! I hope we were able to provide everything you needed! Is there any way we could have provided to improve from a 4 star to a 5 star rating from you? We strive to make our guests stay as wonderful as possible! Your suggestions are welcome Thanks, and we hope to welcome you back! Janine

Great kitchen and Great room everyone in the same place

Great house. Lots of stairs. Well stocked. Clean, nice finishes all around. Too far up the hill for me. We had a great time. Thank you

Owner's Response: Thanks for your response and we're pleased you enjoyed our home! We are indeed one mile uphill from our beach. Certainly not conducive to walking to the beach! We've seen folks do it, but I sure wouldn't. We drive a couple minutes with all our beach gear loaded in the car. Then when you get there (during summer months) they have wagons to haul your stuff to your table. We certainly understand individual preferences! There are trade-offs, always. We chose to buy our home because of the peacefulness and privacy our home and neighborhood afford, as well as the proximity to Paige Meadows and hiking. We hope to welcome you back again!

The home is beautiful, knew we loved it as soon as we pulled into the driveway.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 spent a wonderful 7-day vacation in your very comfortable and welcoming home. Since I was the head chef, the kitchen was so easy to work in and cabinets and drawers were well stocked. Kitchen and great room were designed so well, seating at the kitchen table and overflow at the island was a perfect fit. Our grandchildren and adult children took advantage of all the outdoor activities offered in the area...enjoyed several beaches, bike trail, parasailing, canoeing, hiking, only disappointment was letting too much water out of the Truckee River as they would have loved that also. The decor, art objects and personal touches of your family were heartening. Thank you for sharing your Talmont Estate home with us.

Warm regards,

Dick and Marilyn Zarzana and family

Owner's Response: It truly warms my heart and puts a smile on my face when I learn of a family that enjoyed our home and made happy memories to take away! We strive to provide a well-stocked kitchen/pantry to make cooking easy, but also try to eliminate all the clutter that sometimes accumulates. We would be very happy to welcome your family again! And thanks for the kind remarks!!

Would defiantely stay again!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful week! The house was very well stocked and provided lots of space for everyone. We loved that it was not to far from the lake and provided the private Tahoe Lake Park access. Thanks for a great week! With two small children the stairs were definitely a problem and a constant worry so maybe wouldn't recommend to people with small kids.

Owner's Response: I'm delighted you enjoyed our home! Our beach is really a wonderful place with something for everyone, regardless of age. We hope to welcome you back (and maybe your little ones will be a bit older, so the stairs wont be a problem)!

Great Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is fabulous, it is not like a rental, it is more like staying in your friend's very nice cabin. Very comfortable, bright and open floor plan. It is a great location, mountain biking right out your front door. Close drive to one of the best HOA beaches in Tahoe. The owner is very nice and easy to work with. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS CABIN!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Cammy, for your kind words! We are delighted that you enjoyed our home! When my husband and I are there we hike every morning in the forest and Paige Meadows. I agree that our Home Owners beach is the best private beach on the lake. Last weekend we celebrated a "Baby Dip" (a non-religious Baptism) for our one year old twin grandsons, and the venue was delightful! We reserved tables off to one end of the beach for privacy, BBQed, and set up chairs on the grass and shade overlooking the beach and ceremony– it could not have been more perfect! Later as we left, we observed and heard all the happy sounds of people having fun–playing horseshoes, frisbie, having birthday parties , etc. We are glad you found our home well equipped, and appreciate your heads up on items we were running short on– we restocked everything. We hope to welcome you back! ... Janine
