There are lovely private sleeping quarters, large open gathering places and a great kitchen and yard.

The Master Bedroom boasts a lovely view with a peek of Lake Tahoe; it has a large Whirlpool tub, a sauna shower, and a fireplace, it's luxurious!

Large living area with room for games or just chillin' after a day of skiing, hiking or boating with a wood burning fireplace (wood included) for cold winter nights. Come and enjoy!

About Lisa Brockett

Lisa grew up in the Palo Alto/Los Altos part of the Bay Area and spent time here at Lake Tahoe snow skiing and dreamed of living here one day. Jim grew up in Colorado near Denver and spent a lot of time skiing and Jeeping in the Rocky Mountains surrounding there. Once married with kids they spent time up at Tahoe together skiing and enjoying all that Tahoe has to offer. The dream to live here permanently grew and eventually a permanent move was made and we made home Lake Tahoe.

Lisa Brockett purchased this house in 2000

Why Lisa Brockett chose Lower Kingsbury

This home is located in what we think is the ideal spot. It is only 1 mile from the new Hard Rock Hotel as well as Harvey's, Harrah's and Mont Bleu. It is also literally 5 to 7 minutes from the Boulder chair lift at Heavenly Valley on the Nevada side. The Heavenly Gondola is 5 minutes from home along with beautiful Edgewood Golf Course. There are many other golf courses nearby too, even a great 9 hole public course we frequent called Bijou. Our house is right across from U.S. Forest Service land and a hiking and mountain biking trail that goes all the way to and past the Gondola is there. Lake Tahoe and the beaches are 1 mile from us as the crow flies, 5 minutes by car to Nevada Beach, 7 minutes to Round Hill Pines Beach, 9 minutes to Zephyr Cove. These beaches offer boat, jet ski and paddle boat rentals. Add to all this that it is a nice large comfortable home and to us it is one of the best places on earth!

What makes this house unique

Along with everything already mentioned in 'Why This Property' we have Ladder Ball and Corn Hole games for guest use as well as a basketball hoop and basketballs. We also have a chess table set up, as well as a large collection of games, puzzles, cards, and art supplies. Within minutes you can be at the beach, on a ski lift, at one of the casinos, or one of Harrah's/Harvey's great outdoor summer concerts with groups varying from James Taylor, The Who or Keith Urban, to Slightly Stoopid. Edgewood Golf Course is less than a mile from our house and every July the Celebrity Golf Tournament arrives which is great fun and an opportunity to see many of your favorite athletes and celebrities. To sum it up, we live in what we think is the perfect place-beautiful and peaceful on one hand with any number of great fun things to do at a moments notice only minutes away. You are bound to have boisterous fun or quiet relaxation, whichever suits you and yours on a given day.

Beautiful property and friendly hosts

  • 4 of 5

Simply put, this house is awesome! I could list all the little things that make a great vacation home, but a few thousand words just wouldn't cut it. Some highlights: the multi-level back yard with a grill, horseshoe pit and ladder ball, the theater with AC, the unique eating areas, and all of the kitchen items necessary to feed a small army. Lisa and Jim are very friendly and accommodating.

Perfect amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I begin! First Lisa is amazing. She was super helpful and very kind to me and my family. She had a fire going when we got there which was super nice and a gift for my dads 70th which was very unexpected and so thoughtful. The house was perfect! There was 18 of us and there was so much room. The beds were comfortable and kitchen was well stocked for all the cooking we did. The theater room was a blast whether watching movies or playing rockstar or guitar hero. My entire family loved the home and we can't wait to go back. The location is amazing too. Quiet street but really close to skiing, gambling, shopping, bars and restaurants. We have rented many houses on vrbo and this home was our favorite by far! Thank you so much Lisa for all you did for us! We created awesome memories and laughed so much during our stay.

Beautiful home, fantastic hosts!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this property for a weekend getaway with a group of friends and we could not have been happier with our stay. Lisa was a great host and coordinated everything with our group flawlessly. We were without want being so close to the casinos and Zephyr Cove. Playing Rock Band in the theater is definitely a must if you stay here! Thanks again Lisa and James!

One of the best vacation houses in Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

My family and I, including our visiting friends had a wonderful vacation at the house. Everything is exactly what the listing describes. My personal favorite is the large theatre room where we enjoyed the Euro Cup matches and movies. The house is super clean and organized and there are tons of fun activities you can do in the backyard. Lisa is very friendly and she met us right in front of the house when we arrived the first day. She even left a wine as gift on the kitchen table for us. It's the best vacation home I have ever been in Tahoe area. Two thumbs up!

Lake Tahoe abounds with things to see and do. Our Lower Kingsbury location is perfect for easy access to all that our lake has to offer. We personally recommend seeing Emerald Bay, riding up the Heavenly Gondola to see the lake, renting a kayak or paddle board to enjoy time on the lake, and visiting nearby Nevada Beach, Roundhill Pines Beach and Zephyr Cove Beach. Don't forget your snowboard and skis in the winter time!
