Property description

The 'Refnest' is located in the highly desirable neighborhood of Chamberlands on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe, just past Homewood and Homewood Ski Resort.

The 'Refnest' is a 4000 square foot family cabin, custom built by owner contractor in 1997. The cabin was designed with large family gatherings in mind. The expansive greatroom features a large stone, wood-burning fireplace, with comfortable furnishings for tv viewing, reading, and table games. The outdoor deck, off the greatroom, is a great place for summer dining, bird watching, or sunbathing. The fully equipped modern kitchen features a large island with stone countertops and seating for six, a dining table that accommodates ten, and abundant empty cabinet space, including a pantry for renter's supplies. The master suite, with King Bed, has plenty of room for additional young children, and a full bathroom next door. All of the above are on the top entry level of the home.

The downstairs contains 5 bedrooms: one king, 2 queens, and 2 bunkrooms with 4 beds each. One of these bunkrooms has a game area with tv and foosball for the kids. There are two full bathrooms, with a common vanity area, and a washer and dryer in the laundry area. There is an exterior door that leads to the beautifully landscaped backyard.

The driveway accomodates 4 cars in the winter, and in the summer months parking is available on the side parking area as well as on the street. The garage is also available when the ping-pong table is not in use.

In the summer months, the cabin is a short walk to our 'members only' private beach at Chamber's Landing. Visitors can also enjoy the public sandy beach & pier at Chamber's Landing.
If you prefer a ride to the beach, there is a neighborhood shuttle bus that will pick you up in front of our door, which runs on the half-hour. Our location offers easy access to the bike trail which is a block away, and Tahoe City offers River Rafting on the Truckee River. There is a boat launch at Obexer's Marina in Homewood, and also at Meeks Bay.

In the winter months, the cabin is a short drive to local ski areas such as: Homewood (1 mile), Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley, and Northstar. If you prefer XC skiing, Sugar Pine Point has beautiful trails about 3 miles south.

This large family style cabin is perfect for family reunions, retreats, and small groups, excluding weddings and youth group activities.

Keywords: spacious, large modern kitchen, sizable greatroom, garage, private beach membership, walking distance to the lake, large backyard for games, nearby skiing, bike trails, boating, hiking.
