Overview

About the property

House, 3BR2BR

This is a great location, just 2 miles north of Tahoe City. The Alpine center is just up the street for cross country skiing and fantastic summer mountain bike trails.

Within 6-11 miles of 4 world class ski resorts, yet close enough to town for easy grocery shopping or fine dining. A convenience store with Redbox DVD rentals is just 7 houses away on North Lake Blvd. Depending on renters needs, additional services available, including use of large SUV to transport toys. Paved bike trails to town, resorts and along Truckee River.

Shown rates are for main unit only. Inquire about renting apartment above garage/great room available for the holiday season at an additional cost of $150 per night and $40 additional cleaning.

A filtered lake view through tree foliage, really not much to see, but elevated living spaces provide lots of light and privacy for hot tub. Good view of Alpine Meadows off above garage deck.

Primary renters must be 25 years or older.

You'll want to come back.

About Jim Kunkel

I reside in Tahoe area now. I had a great career, and decided this was a great place to work from. Thus, it's well set up for an office or two for those that can't escape. I enjoy golfing, biking, rafting and fly-fishing...all things to do in this area and can share my toys to make for a more enjoyable, complete vacation. Would be happy to join in to your group should you want some interaction, helping with food and transportation.

Jim Kunkel purchased this house in 1978

Why Jim Kunkel chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

Years ago, this simple house was bought as an investment by single roommates looking for a ski lease. It has evolved to a much larger place with all season benefits.

What makes this house unique

Sitting in the hot tub watching the stars or being snowed on. Sitting with a drink, listening to good music. Wine tasting and BBQing on the main upper deck, entertaining old friends and new. Mountains bike rides at the Nordic Center, just up the hill, is great especially in the evenings. The bike lake/river trail is a couple hundred yards away...paved to Squaw Valley, 8 miles away, mostly riding along the Truckee River where rafting can be a great summer adventure.

Very positive

  • 4 of 5

The property was easy to get to, close to Tahoe City and walking distance to the water. Jim, the owner lives next door. He was was there to greet us, offered bikes, rafts, hiking ideas etc. He was available if needed, but also not seen if this is not your desire. The home was attractive, clean, comfortable and roomy, enough for three couples. My only suggestion is have a fan in the loft for air flow (was warm at night) and curtains on the bathroom window, Early morning direct sunlight is blinding. It's a 5 star discounting those two comments.

Owner's Response: I should have attempted to reverse the ceiling fan. I had it set for down air, maybe lifting would have been cooler. Will investigate or get a box fan for upstairs. Were you thinking about a curtain in the upstairs or main shower? Thanks Jim

Immaculate, comfortable, mountain treasure

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable, spacious, quiet mountain home located in a convenient location. 4 family members took advantage of the hot tub, washer/dryer, BBQ in this quiet and serene forest setting. Comfortable beds, spacious layout, easy parking, and fully loaded kitchen, this house had it all. Jim welcomed us upon arrival and made sure that our needs were met and questions answered. He recommended good beaches, hikes and other points of interest to make our short week a slice of heaven. Would not hesitate to rent this home again.
