About the Property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

This is where your ideal Tahoe vacation happens. You can cook anything you can imagine in our fully equipped kitchen, complete with a commercial stove. Create a masterpiece mountain breakfast, simmer a savory boeuf bourginon in a Dutch oven, sauté vegetables on the stove’s powerful burners…

Celebrate life with friends and family at the single slab mahogany dining table, then relax in the Great Room in front of the hearth. When it’s time to turn in, you’ll find the bedrooms equally richly appointed with top-quality linens and comforters.

Not a chef? You have a choice of fine restaurants in Tahoe City about a half hour’s drive away, or closer resort dining, depending on the season.

Don’t worry about those calories; there’s a well-equipped exercise room downstairs, or take to the nearby trails for a brisk hike. Depending on the season, you can hop on a mountain bike or ski nearby Homewood Ski Resort. Afterward, relax those muscles in a conveniently located sauna.

Luxuriate in the home’s fine attention to detail. Custom wrought iron, woodwork, hand-carved moldings, antique light fixtures, rough hewn log trusses and other hand-crafted details bring you back to an age where life was slower, focused on leisure time with friends in sumptuous surroundings.

To facilitate longer stays, a washer and dryer are at your disposal.

Settle in, kick up your feet, listen to the bird songs and get away from it all… or stay in touch with the world via our high speed wireless internet. The home has good cell phone reception for most carriers, but wouldn't you rather turn off your phone and escape to serenity?

Book now! Your dream Tahoe retreat awaits!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: I'm a master builder who loves the style of the Ahwahnee dining room. So I decided to build this home as a tribute to the age when people made the arduous trip to Yosemite and bask in a fantastic setting. I'm also an avid cook, so when I build a home the kitchen is top notch and up to any challenge I can imagine.

Why the Owner Chose McKinney Estates, Tahoma, CA, USA:
Location, location, location. The home rests on a quiet street within easy reach of Homewood Ski Resort, the fine dining restaurants (and rustic pubs) of Tahoe City, the incomparable crystalline waters of Lake Tahoe, and miles of hiking trails beckoning you to explore the forests (preferably with a good GPS unit).

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There's really no place like home, especially when it combines all the modern amenities with the timeless elegance of rustic craftsmanship. The architecture soars, light washes through the house, details entice, and the kitchen sizzles. Just look at the photographs and you'll see what a special place awaits!
