About the Property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 15)

This home was once owned by the Sahara Tahoe Hotel and Casino (now the Horizon Casino) and was used to provide private accommodations for its star performers. This private estate has over 5,500 SF of indoor living space, and 1,700 SF of outdoor deck offering the ultimate in luxury lakefront living.

This is truly “lakefront” property where the water is just a few steps from the edge of the deck. Enjoy the breath-taking views of Lake Tahoe and Emerald Bay from our 220 foot long deep water pier; it is one of the longest privately owned deep water piers on Lake Tahoe. It measures 15 feet wide at the pier head and includes a catwalk and swim ladders. Let it be your private island in the sun. Enjoy the western sunset as you grill dinner on the outdoor BBQ, share meals at the outdoor dining table, relax in the outdoor hot tub, or while you warm yourself by the fire-pit. See TAKE FLIGHT for a drone video of the Home of the Stars lakefront and Zephyr Cove in the link below.

Indoors you'll find the six (6) bedrooms on the upper level. The guest bathrooms have passive steam showers and warming towel bars. Each guest bedroom has its own special features; some have private balconies, some have exterior access to the deck and hot-tub below, others have private bathrooms. The dry sauna is also conveniently located on the upper level near bathrooms and changing areas. The kitchen, dining area, family room, laundry room, and billiard room are located on the mid-level. The oversized kitchen is fully equipped with a stand-alone refrigerator, freezer and ice maker, Wolfe gourmet gas stove, cookware, glassware, utensils, spices and condiments. In the billiard room there is a walk-in closet filled with board games, cards, dice, checkers, and chess. The kitchenette (small kitchen), card room, and media lounge are located on the lower level which opens up onto the deck. There is a bookshelf full of books and a DVD/VCR library for you to enjoy.

The home has radiant heat floors which provide a consistent dust-free source of heat. The driveway has a snow melt system which abuts to a covered front porch so access is effortless even with winter snow. Parking is limited to the driveway which can accommodate 4-5 vehicles. Due to parking limitations and respect for our neighbors, this home is not suitable for group functions including parties or weddings which are expressly prohibited in the Rental Agreement.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: My husband, Mark, spent many treasured childhood summers at Lake Tahoe. His grandparents, Ernest and Nellie, purchased lakefront property in Lake Tahoe in 1922 which was a legacy that lasted three generations. The Lake is a sanctuary for Mark - a place to re-charge from his hurried life and reacquaint himself with nature. When the family property was sold in 2007, Mark knew he wanted our children to experience Lake Tahoe in the same way so we acquired this one-of-a-kind home in Zephyr Cove.

Why the Owner Chose Skyland, NV, USA:
The east shore provides some of the most scenic views of Lake Tahoe. It has warm afternoons and spectacular sunsets. It is close to South Shore casinos offering world class entertainment and food. The home is situated 50 feet from the trailhead to National forest lands where there is hiking and private beaches to discover. In the summer you can hike (less than 1 mile) through the forest to the Zephyr Cove pier where water sports are available to include boating, catamarans, canoes, windsurfing, water skiing, jet skiing, beach volleyball and the famous Dixie paddle boat cruise. There is also indoor and beach dining at Zephyr Cove. In the winter it is a short drive to Heavenly Valley Ski Resort that hosts snow boarding, snow skiing, zip lining (Heavenly Flyer) and a children's play area (Adventure Peak). The Kahle Community Center has a gym, indoor courts, indoor track and outdoor sports field.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home offers a truly unforgettable Lake Tahoe experience. The home and deck extend out to the edge of the water offering a rare outdoor experience. The gas barbeque, dining table, hot tub and firepit provide everything you need for a relaxing day at the Lake without ever leaving home. The Skyland community beach is a wonderful place for young children to play or for adults to share the company of friends and neighbors.
