About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Gorgeous views of the Lake and canyons from this newly remodeled, professionally decorated, non-smoking home. Decorated for the discriminating taste in the old Awahannee style décor. Perfect for one or two families without pets. Although we can review having your sweet doggie! Recent tree removal have made the view much better than shown in old photos on this site.

Very special property which sits high on national forest land so you only see nature, the big sky, amazing views or the lake and canyons, hear the wind and birds in the trees while you relax.

You do not look at other homes at this location from the back deck living space. Just pure nature! Heavenly.

Whether you are interested in barbequing on a private deck, hottubbing in seclusion while looking at the open views, taking a sauna in the master suite, enjoying a starry night on the deck while sitting by a fire, reading on a chaise listening to the sounds of nature, hiking, biking, sledding, or skiing out the back door, you will find paradise here. We have a retractable huge awning when the sun is more than you want, you open it and sit in a comfy chaise while reading your book or enjoying the views.

This home is meant to be enjoyed by those interested in enjoying and taking care of what we have worked hard to create. It is a great place to get away from it all yet you are minutes from the lake and Tahoe City. Shopping just minutes away, convenience store down the hill for food small lists, biking trails just down the hill or up here where you are staying.

You will love it here and not want to leave.

About Cheryl

We are a family of five who bought this wonderful home Just outside Tahoe City for a place to relax and share with friends and family. We are active people and LOVE the location. You can get to everything within minutes or stay away from it all seeing only the lake, trees and mountains. Your choice. We love Talmont area for hiking, biking, snow shoeing, cross country and bird watching. Talmont is the name of our area in Tahoe Park region. The Paige meadows are a 1o minute walk and are stunning year round.

We appreciate nice things and like sharing them with those who do as well. We like to travel and also consider trading homes sometimes.

Cheryl purchased this house in 2000

Why Cheryl chose Talmont

This area is the best on the West Shore--loads of views, hiking/biking and skiing right out the back door, SO peaceful and quiet that we LOVE it here--it is our second home in the area. We love that in 5 minutes we are in Tahoe City for great shopping and dining. So close to great skiing,hiking and the lake is just down the hill!

What makes this house unique

Peace and quiet. So close to everything yet so far! The views will leave you calm and wanting to stay longer than you have time for.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The home is perfectly suited for 2families with a huge room for kids to enjoy while adults play cards or just enjoy alone The views are amazing

We always hate to leave

Wonderful property!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. The location is far enough off the main roads that you really get the feeling of being surrounded by nature, but it was still very convenient to get to Alpine/Squaw where we skied, and also to Tahoe city restaurants and shops. The house itself is lovely and inviting. There is plenty of space and the living room is really nice for playing games (we brought Pictionary!) or watching a movie or just chatting by the fire. We were there with a group of friends and everyone was so excited to arrive at such a beautiful place! The views are amazing, it's so peaceful. The kitchen is spacious and well stocked and the dining table was perfect for dinners at home together. The bedrooms are big and comfortable and there are plenty of beds. Hot tub is nice and clean too! We had a great time and would definitley stay here again. Thanks Cheryl!

The view and amenities are unbeatable!

  • 5 of 5

This home is spectacular!!! Quite honestly, the photos do not even come close to portraying what you will experience in terms of ambiance, living space, technology, luxury and relaxation. You name it, you got it. When there was a problem, Jim & Cheryl were on it immediately to resolve the issue. Really great to work with - responsive, genuinely super nice people and give a 100% effort to make your stay magnificent. The best compliment we can offer is that we can't wait to come back next Summer!

This is a beautiful spacious home,well kept and near the top of a hill providing great views.

  • 5 of 5

All the conveniences of home. Plenty of room. We especially liked the master bedroom, kitchen, living room, and the deck with a view no picture could capture. We enjoyed eating dinner at home most nights, with prime seating right here on the deck, or in the kitchen area. We loved the location on the west side of the lake, Tahoe City is a great location. This house is up quite a ways, which provides the great view, it would be a challenge to walk or ride a bike to/from town, but it's a scenic short car ride.

The owners were a pleasure to deal with. We will be coming back, and will recommend this home to friends and family as well. You will not be disappointed.
