About Dean & Diana Smith

Husband is a Chicago native, wife is from Northern California. During our travels, we have had both excellent & poor accommodations. Through prior B&B, hotel and, VRBO reservations, we have applied those better experiences to how our guests should be treated. We wish to make everyone feel at home.

Dean & Diana Smith purchased this house in 2010

Why Dean & Diana Smith chose Zephyr Cove

Lake Tahoe! What more needs to be said? If you have not experienced Lake Tahoe, you are missing world class golf, snowboarding, snow and water skiing, and summer water activities. An old volcano of fresh blue water, Lake Tahoe is surrounded by beautiful mountains in a quiet yet vibrant community. The California and Nevada side of Lake Tahoe each has their own unique qualities and charm.

What makes this house unique

We are actually 400 yards from Zephyr Cove Beach & Resort! Yes you can walk to the beach from our home. Clean air, beautiful scenery, biking, hiking, kayaking, while also enjoying outstanding dining and entertainment venues. If we want quiet seclusion or a fun night out, Zephyr Cove in South Lake Tahoe Nevada is the perfect location. OUR VIRTUAL TOUR LINK BELOW! 360 VIEWS OF OUR LOVELY HOME
