Property description

"Rhapsody Lodge" is an outstanding mountain home (with WiFi & 3 DVRs) in a great location, half-way between Incline Village and Tahoe City, near recreational facilities and rental equipment in Tahoe Vista as well as Kings Beach. Nestled into a lovely alpine neighborhood, the large property is just 2 blocks above the lake with a sandy, shallow beach and small boat launch & kayak rentals in the summer. Six major ski resorts are within 15-25 minutes. Close to many good restaurants, Old Brockway golf course, and a large Safeway supermarket. North Tahoe Regional Park is several blocks away with 5 miles of hiking, public tennis courts, groomed cross-country ski trail and a sledding hill in the winter. Huge old growth cedars and pines are just up the trail from Rhapsody Lodge. Flat access to house in winter; no hills! Snow removal provided. Less than ten minutes to CalNeva, Crystal Bay & Tahoe Biltmore casinos. Driveway and garage are easy access from street.

The house is beautifully maintained and appointed with all the comforts of home. Upstairs are 2 queen bedrooms and 1 large bathroom with a shower and Jacuzzi bathtub.

Fenced yard is great for kids and parties, with gas barbecue, umbrella tables, deck and the newly-installed, professionally-maintained 3-person Hot Tub.
Beautiful new gas-log fireplace in Living Room is operated by remote control, providing mountain ambiance and warmth that adds to the home's forced air heating. Sorry, no wood to chop, haul & burn!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: Gary & Marti Barmore discovered Tahoe Vista when Marti's brother and his family moved there over 30 years ago. It wasn't long before Gary & Marti fell in love with a Tahoe style home of their own on the North Shore! Gary liked the large garage and Marti liked the spacious kitchen. They added a second story in 1999 and have added other rooms and many amenities to provide comfort for their family and guests. While they still live in southern California, they visit their beloved second home regularly to enjoy and maintain its pristine condition. As for renting it to guests, Gary likes to tell people, "It's like we're running a Bed-and-Breakfast, but we're just not there to fix breakfast!"

Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Vista, CA, USA:
Classic Tahoe home, fabulous location, wonderful recreation and restaurants, wilderness and amenities nearby, easy access ... a no-brainer! Walking distance to beaches and restaurants, quite neighborhood, flat access in snow, relaxing backyard in spring, summer and fall. New outdoor jacuzzi for 3-4 people.
