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.

Perfect Tahoe City Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, close to Tahoe City and the ski resorts, and walking distance to Paige Meadows (snowshoeing, cross country skiing, etc.). I couldn't imagine a better place to stay in Tahoe City...we'll definitely be back!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

Great house. We really enjoyed our time at the property. It was perfect for two families. Big kitchen and great living room for hanging out. Lots of fun for the kids to play in the snow out back.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Irena! One of the reasons we bought this house was that it is indeed perfect for two families. This is certainly the time for snow play for both kids and grown-ups! There is lots of snow play possibilities all around our house– our grown-up sons and friends like to build snow runs and jumps. Now I can't wait to play in the snow with our 10 month old twin grandsons! We hope to welcome you back and we always try to offer special consideration to our alums! –Janine

Spacious & Beautifully Appointed Home Amongst Ponderosa Pines!

  • 5 of 5

Charming, beautiful home, above the lake but in a convenient location. Third level has an open layout with living-dining-kitchen combo but is cozy with expansive window views of towering ponderosa pines ~ delightful! Beautifully appointed, the leather sofa is both expansive and inviting with its luxurious fur throws, and the gas fireplace provides warmth during winter snows and romantic evenings. Comfortable Cal-king bed in upstairs master bedroom, and the kitchen has all the modern comforts including washer/dryer, well stocked pantry, BBQ on the kitchen deck & an unexpected picnic travel box in the garage packed with all you need for an outing to Talmont Homeowners’ Beach Park. Were snowed in for Thanksgiving & the setting was transformed into a winter wonderland, peaceful & relaxing, even “appointed” with 4 foot sparkling icicles draping off the roofline!

Quiet, welcoming neighborhood, great for exploring hiking trails in any season. We’ll definitely be back!
