About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)
We are remodeling our house every year, so check out the new pictures!
This 1600 sq ft. home, between Homewood and Tahoe City, is 12-sided and backs up to National Forest Service land and Blackwood Canyon (a wonderful hike, bike, ski, snowshoe and bring-the-kids explore area)--A perfect place for a get-away any time of the year. It's homey, comfortable, has tons of charm and amenities, and is perfect for up to 7 people. We have a lovely, inviting stone fireplace with gas starter.
***For exact location, please look up Elizabeth St., Homewood, CA.
The neighborhood is quiet, there's plenty of parking for 4 cars in the driveway--it's perfect for friends, family or business. To quote Steve, a recent renter: 'I'm so glad you opened your home to us. Friendly neighbors, quiet, virtually on the water, buoy, everything!!! Thanks again!'
There are filtered lake views from our deck, and you are within an hour's drive (depending on road conditions) to anywhere on the lake--skiing, hiking, casinos, rivers, lakes, and/or shopping. We are close to Tahoe City and Homewood, Alpine and Squaw ski areas, the Rubicon Trail and Truckee.
There are 2 formal bedrooms (one with a queen bed and the other with a double and twin bed), one sleeping area downstairs with twin beds and curtains for privacy (counts as a 3rd bedroom), a fold out couch that sleeps one adult or 2 children, and a fold up single bed, 2 full bathrooms, 2 TV's (one up, one downstairs), and 2 VCR/DVD's. Smart phone coverage is fair to good with possible internet. We do not have wifi.
Another recent renter gave our house rave reviews:
“We came back today from Tahoe and it was a wonderful experience. The skiing and the lake were in our backyard and your home was a quaint and rustic, warm environment. I would definitely stay there again!'
We also own a large buoy and can rent that out in addition to staying in our home.
The association has a beautiful beach and a picturesque dock. You can walk down and watch the lake, admire the beautiful surrounding mountains, and of course, relax!
This house is available for nightly, weekly or monthly rental all year long. Per night price may vary depending on time requested. For more information or to book this home, please call or email Trudy.

Year Purchased: 1969
About: Our Skyland house is owned by my father, but since he is older, I have volunteered to manage the property and rent it as often as possible. The house has been furnished as a second home for my family, not as a rental. We love using it and love being up at Tahoe, any season. Each year, a part of the house gets remodeled, so it looks better and better each season. Come and experience a wonderful place! Note: This photo was taken on my bike ride around Crater Lake. Tahoe is a great place to ride your bike too!
Why Homewood, CA, USA:
My parents chose to buy property at Tahoe back in 1968 because a house could be rented for at least 2 seasons, maybe more. We were a boating, water skiing and snow skiing family, so Tahoe was a natural choice. It has been a great house in a wonderful, beautiful location.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Peace and quiet, beauty, trees, water, mountains, valleys, rivers, blue sky, skiing, hiking, biking, rafting... What more could you ask for!
