About the Property

Exquisite 5bd, 3 ba home! Hot Tub, views, backs to forest, 3mi to ski Heavenly

Enjoy our beautiful, newly remodeled luxury home 3 miles away from Heavenly Valley. Located off Upper Kingsbury, our home backs up to the lush woods of the Toiyabe National Forest, high (7800 ft) above Lake Tahoe (6200 ft.), with breathtaking mountain and woodland views out all of our 41 windows and glass doors.

HUGE magestic dining table easily seats 12 people. 2 fully equipped kitchens (one on each level). Only 5 steps for Grandpa or Grandma to enter from the garage - and then no steps at all on main level (3bds, 2 baths, kitchen, laundry, dining, sitting room, living room - deck, hot tub). Downstairs are an additional 2 bedrms, bathroom, theater, kitchen, ping pong table, mud room, and 2nd laundry room.

For prices (from $600 to $900/night season and holiday dependent) and minimum stay (from 2 to 5 nights) scroll down all the way- past the reviews from people who have enjoyed our home. This home is PERFECT for multi-generational family vacation.

Out-the-door access to the Tahoe Rim Trail and the Stage Coach lift to Heavenly’s Nevada side only three miles away makes our home an excellent choice for summer or winter fun, whether it is hiking, mountain biking, off-roading, snowmobiling, snow shoeing, skiing, or boarding.

Our home is beautifully appointed and we take great pride in creating a warm, comfortable environment for discriminating guests, with thoughtful details such as beautiful hardwood floors, Tibetan area rugs, granite and stone counter tops, and art work throughout. Ours is most definitely not your typical rental home and we would love to think of you as a return guest who treats our place with the utmost care.

Beautifully decorated and tastefully furnished in “sophisticated rustic” style, our home is 3200 sq. ft. and sleeps 10 comfortably. We have a heated 2-car garage with additional parking in the driveway and street. Our place has 5 bedrooms, 2 living rooms, a sitting room, 2 fully stocked kitchens, 3 bathrooms, 2 laundry rooms, a mud room, a dining room with a spectacular chandelier and beautiful hardwood table for 12, a central fireplace, a game room with Ping-Pong table, a 70-in. theater-style HD TV with DVD and THX surround sound, and a deck with hot tub, gas grill, patio furniture, and picturesque surroundings.

The master bedroom has a king size bed, in-suite bathroom and a 46-inflat screen HD TV with DVD. Three other bedrooms have queen size beds. The fifth bedroom has a bunk bed. There is wireless, high-speed internet throughout, with the internet connected to the 70-inch and 46-inch TVs for streaming video downloads. The built-in sound system has an iPod dock and provides multiple zones, including the back deck, that allows different entertainment for different rooms.

The wooded lot has 10 ft. boulders and nearly fifty trees, nicely spaced to provide both privacy and beautiful views.

We are in an ideal location. Looking out our back windows, you would think you are in the middle of the wilderness. We are connected to miles of hiking trails with spectacular, panoramic views of the mountains and Lake Tahoe. Yet you have all the modern appliances and conveniences expected by discriminating guests and you are only 3 miles from the ski slopes and 5 miles from the casinos, night clubs, theaters, concerts, restaurants, stores, and beaches of South Lake Tahoe. Beach communities surround Lake Tahoe on both the Nevada and California sides. Nevada’s capital of Carson City is only 30 miles away and the international airport, hotels and casinos of Reno are only 60 miles away.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are Bob and Shari, a young retired couple who live in San Francisco. We are both well-educated and were accomplished professionals in our careers. We are international travelers who enjoy the world's premier cities and cultural sites, as well as multi-sport experiences in mountains, forests, and deserts. So we are equally comfortable in a tuxedo and gown as jeans and hiking boots. The Tahoe property is our second home and we would love to share it with you.

Why the Owner Chose Upper Kingsbury (Stateline, NV, USA):
Lake Tahoe and the surrounding mountains are among the gems of the world, offering beautiful vistas and challenging physical experiences. We love being 3 miles from the ski slopes and walking out our back door to the Tahoe Rim Trail and endless forest. Shari particularly loves waking up to the magnificent beauty out our 5 windows in the master bedroom. We also love the tranquility and privacy.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
After a challenging day of skiing through the trees off of Heavenly's slopes, we love sitting on our deck or steeping in our hot tub while sipping wine and watching the sun set behind the wooded mountain in our back yard. We think you will, too. In warmer months, we love our morning aerobic challenge of hiking to the top of the mountain in our back yard and returning for breakfast within an hour.
