About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 8-9)
The house is roomy and sunny with large windows that allow you to feel that you are surrounded by nature: Upper Truckee River runs through the backyard of this large 2-acre lot and the mountains and the National Forest are in your view from everywhere.
We have set up the house as our home and we love coming here! We know you will enjoy the art on the walls, the furnishing, and the comfortable bedding.
It is a spacious house and it accommodates 8 people comfortably. The floor plan is very well designed providing lots of privacy with the bedrooms being on the apposite ends of the house. The house has: 3 roomy bedrooms, 2 full remodeled bathrooms (done in bright colors in a contemporary style), a fully stocked kitchen, a living room with a fireplace, and a spacious mudroom (charming and extremely convenient for leaving your shoes, jackets, bags, etc before entering the house).
The deck overlooks the river, and again, provides you with a great river, mountain, and forest views. There is a hot tub on the deck, that is professionally serviced always before the guests arrival, and a gas grill.
The upstairs is not available, it's the owners' private quarters, and it will not be occupied during your stay.
And we can assure you that every visited dog believes that our place and our neighborhood are the ultimate dog paradise. So, bring your pets along! But also please be a responsible pet owner.
The house is also available for winter seasonal lease. Please contact me for the pricing.

Located in scenic Christmas Valley, this house is away from tourist town traffic, but at the same time it is close to everything in town: shopping, entertaining, eating out, etc. and it’s just a 20 minute drive to the casinos or the southern shores of Lake Tahoe.
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: My name is Rachel, my husband and I live the Bay Area, CA. I love to travel, work in sculpture, garden, bike, hike, love theater, opera, museums, art, and I really enjoy sharing our beautiful home in Tahoe with our friends and guests.
Why the Owner Chose Christmas Valley, South Lake Tahoe, CA, USA:
We love our house in Tahoe. It is a very spacious home built on a 2 acres lot, surrounded by the mountains and the US National Forest. South Upper Truckee River runs though our property. The location is wonderful!. It takes only 20 min getting to everything one would love to do in Tahoe: getting to a couple of ski resorts, to Lake Tahoe, to Stateline casinos, to hiking trails (many trails accessible with no driving at all). This is our second home and we love coming there at least once a month. We recently did lots of major remodeling: completely remodeled the bathrooms, got all new kitchen appliances, painted inside/outside, got new furniture, new mattresses, rebuilt the deck, and got a new spa. All that done within the last 4 years. We made the house very comfortable for ourselves and our guest.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
In the winter, sledding and snowshoeing can be done in the back of the house. Heavenly, Sierra-at-Tahoe, and Kirkwood are the closest ski resorts. The Winter season lease is also available. In the summer, if you like hiking, you can go on either short or very long hikes right out of the house (no driving). It is the same when it comes to biking. The beautiful Lake Tahoe Southern shore beaches are within a short 20-min drive.
