About the Property

Chalet, 4 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Relax and entertain family and friends in this custom-built, spacious home with panoramic mountain views. This unique home is located in Alpine Meadows just minutes away from world class skiing at Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley. The home features the craftsmanship of hand-carved wood and intricate etched glass mirrors with a natural rock interior and an open, modern kitchen and adjoining great room. A comfortable Marquis hot tub nestled on the private second story deck offers some of the most breathtaking views of the surrounding Tahoe basin with its towering pines and snow capped mountains.

Alpine Mountain Retreat is located in the tranquil Alpine Meadows neighborhood, one of the best kept secrets on Lake Tahoe's North Shore. For winter sports enthusiasts, world class skiing at Alpine Meadows ski resort is just minutes up the road while Squaw Valley USA is less than 10 minutes by car. Enjoy nearby cross country skiing, sledding, or ice skating as well. Summertime is glorious in the cool alpine mountains. Numerous hiking trails, single-track mountain-bike trails, and a paved bike path along the scenic Truckee River are just out the door. Visitors may also enjoy the famous Truckee River raft float, horseback riding at nearby stables, and the water sports at Lake Tahoe. One of Tahoe's renowned restaurants and après ski hot spots, the River Ranch, is just down Alpine Meadows road with selections of other dining and nightlife options at the Village in Squaw Valley. One can venture south (just 5 miles) to Tahoe City, or North (just 8 miles) to Truckee, for a wider variety of shopping, restaurants, and entertainment.

Upon arriving at this vacation rental, take notice of the elaborate mountain setting carved into the garage doors. Alpine Mountain Retreat includes 2 garages and additional parking for 2-3 cars. Once inside, venture upward on a spiral staircase into the great room. This spacious and sunny gathering space with expansive windows and views includes the open living area, dining area, and kitchen. The living area includes a large flat screen TV with surround sound CD/DVD player, high-speed internet access, an open fireplace with plenty of wood provided, and an indoor rock fountain. The well-equipped kitchen offers a plethora of unique granite counter space and 2 separate sink areas. A large center island seats 5 and modern appliances make this kitchen a pleasurable place to prepare and enjoy any meal. The dining room table is hand carved wood, flanked by two long benches on either side, and will seat 10 guests.

Accommodations in this vacation retreat include 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, plus a sleeping den. After climbing the initial spiral staircase from the ground level, you will enter the den lit by the backdrop of etched mirrors. The den offers a comfortable twin bed and a double bed separated by the stairway. There’s room for a double futon as well. Continuing up through the great room, you will reach the third level, home to 2 loft bedrooms. Located on opposing wings of this floor, one of these bedrooms offers a queen bed and its own bath, the other has a double bed and bath located in the hall just outside of the bedroom. The fourth and upper-most level of this vacation home offers 2 stunning master suites. One bedroom includes two queen beds and a stunning mountain view. The attached master bath boasts natural stone craftsmanship and an oversized shower. From this bedroom, access the large second story deck with unparalleled views and a hot tub. The charming fourth bedroom offers an elegant hand carved king bed, high ceilings and sky lights with elaborate wooden beams, hand-etched mirrors, and yet another lavish master bath with natural stone finish work in the shower.

Alpine Mountain Retreat offers the ultimate in luxury vacation homes while situated in a classic Lake Tahoe setting; a great atmosphere to relax with family and friends and take in everything North Lake Tahoe has to offer.
