Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are a family of five (three children ages 4, 6 and 8) currently living in Massachusetts. Our work has taken us to many places in the United States and abroad, but we always crave the beauty and peace that we find when staying at our Alpine Meadows home.

Why the Owner Chose Alpine Meadows, CA, USA:
In my youth, I spent summers swimming and playing in the sand at the Bear Creek pond, riding my bike down to Tahoe City and the lake, fishing the Truckee River, and hiking the nearby trails. In winter, I spent weekends on the slopes at Alpine Meadows Ski Area. Bear Creek has a special place in my heart and it was a great pleasure to share it with my husband. He quickly fell in love with Bear Creek and we decided to buy a home there.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We love our home because it is comfortable and has beautiful views. It has a large open living area and a good sized deck that easily accommodate a crowd. The tall windows in the living room offer great views of the large surrounding trees and you can watch the sunset on a nearby mountain ridge from the hot tub. The history is also interesting as the home was built by one of the founders of the Alpine Meadows Ski Area and was one of the first homes to be built in the area. We've been told that two Norwegian men lived in a small hut on the adjacent property while they built our home.
