Squaw Valley Estate is a 4800 sq. foot, 3 story, 5 bedroom/4.5 bath home located less than 1/4 mile away from the legendary Squaw Valley Ski Resort. The home holds beautiful views of KT-22, Snow King Peak, and the Tram Face out the massive living room windows. You can sit on the couch drinking your morning coffee and watch people ski down the hill. You may not ever want to leave!
Enter this gorgeous property through a large, custom-made metal door. Before entry, you have a view of the manicured lawns and unique stone fountain available for your enjoyment (during the summer time). Ski and snowboard racks are provided at main entrance, just before heading up the hallway to the main house. Meander along the beautiful covered entryway of slate and wood. At the top of hallway, you will find a large shoe rack just outside the entrance to the main level, and a quaint bench for removal/donning of your shoes & boots.
Located on main floor, the living room holds a 47' flat screen, high definition TV, Blu-Ray/DVD player, stereo, and six couches to melt into after a long day. A pellet stove in the middle of the room provides the heat of a wood fire, without all the hassle. Pellets for the stove will be provided for your convenience. The house also has heated flooring throughout, keeping the home at a cozy 73 degrees Fahrenheit all winter.
Off the living room is a custom-made dinning room. The dining room seats 20 people and is decorated in a German-Bavarian styling that makes dinner just as comfortable and relaxing as the rest of the house.
Also located on the main floor you will find a lovely kitchen with all you cooking needs. At night, turn off the lights and gaze at the stars through the large sky light. Off the kitchen is a walk-in pantry to hold all the dry goods you may need for your vacation.
Outside the dining room is a deck with unfettered views of Squaw Valley. From here, you can descend a staircase to the Paver patio, complete with table and large propane Bar-B-Que. Enjoy the unique granite stone work while cooking yourself a meal al fresco.
A spiral staircase from the main level brings you down to the second floor where you find 3 bedrooms, all with their own full bathrooms. The laundry station is also found on this floor. Continue downwards and you find yourself at the ground level with two separate queen rooms and a shared bathroom. Just outside is a covered hot tub to soak away long ski days or just to relax after a day of strenuous activities.
Going upwards from the main level, you will find yourself in a tower with 360 degree views of the property. A futon located here provides an extra sleeping quarter. From this tower to ground level, you will find wall decor displaying many of the activities you can find in the region.
There is a caretaker that lives on the premisses that handles all snow removal during the winter season and any repairs that may be necessary during your stay.
The Village at Squaw is a short distance away to provide many restaurants, activities, and entertainment. Tahoe City, a short 7 miles away, is where you find the nearest grocery store or stop on your way in from Truckee and grab all that is needed.
This property has everything you will need for your legendary Tahoe Vacation, all we need is you!

First coming to Squaw Valley to watch the 1960 Winter Olympics, the owner immediately fell in love with the area. Being pulled back to Squaw shortly after to help develop this amazing ski resort is what kept him around to raise his family. He is an engineer and general contractor that has helped develop ski resorts across North America. A legend in the area for his work, the Owner has some great memorabilia in the home including a signed poster of Jonny Moseley to years of Mighty Mites kids ski camp pictures. Take a ride up the Aerial Tram or the Funitel and enjoy the fruits of his labor! The property is now family operated- managed by his daughter and the owner is the caretaker.

Awesome Squaw Valley Home!
This was our second time staying in this amazing cabin! My absolute favorite part is the view from the living room. It's so great to look straight out at Squaw. The cabin itself is so great for a big group. Plenty of couches and the large booth is really nice too for big group meals. Mekala is a great host - there were a couple minor issues during our stay and she was extremely responsive at getting those taken care of. She's a great communicator throughout the process and I couldn't ask for a better host. I highly recommend staying here!
Beautiful property great for a group
Wonderful place for a group to stay close to Squaw.
The property was superb and the hosts were wonderful.
We booked the property for a family reunion and had 8 adults staying with us. The property was spacious and well equipped. The beds were very comfortable and there was plenty of living space.
It was a nice neighborhood with easy access to the ski lifts. We highly recommend this house for large families. Everything was perfect.
This is my new favorite place in Squaw Valley to stay with friends. It's wonderfully eccentric in design, and it's spacious and comfortable. The owners were very responsive and made sure our stay was perfect. We enjoyed cooking in well stocked kitchen, and enjoyed a wonderful hot tub in a snowy paradise. It's a 20 minute 1-mile walk to Olympic Village. Next time we return to Squaw with friends, we look forward to booking again!
This spot will make your trip!
This house made our stay. It looks like a castle when you drive up and you truly feel like royalty staying here. The views of the mountain are incredible and made for a perfect backdrop to our weekend. It is equipped with all the household items you could want and it was super homey, clean and comfortable. The proximity to the village, hiking trails and Tahoe City made it an ideal location. I would recommend staying here a hundred times over. We will definitely be coming back!

The home was cozy and warm from the minute you walked in, and the master bath was to die for... amazing shower and jacuzzi tub. It was the perfect place for me to enjoy a relaxing mothers day weekend.
