Space 2,000 sq. ft.

Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths (Sleeps 8 in beds+1 more on Living Room couch)

Please Note. We have had record snow fall (over 50 feet) and as a result, the parking is limited, and you may need to walk up from another parking area about 100 yards away. But once at our house, you will have the adventure of a life time in the Snow.

This is a one of a kind Home hidden in the Mountains above Lake Tahoe off the Mt Rose Hwy 431 with views to Reno, on an unpaved road about one tenth mile from Main Hwy and only 2 miles to Mt Rose Ski Ares. Besides being a wonderful vintage home, the views are incredible. We are the proud new owners, and everyone tells us that this is the best built house anywhere around. We love it and want to share it. The first renters said they loved it and felt like they were in a museum. I would not call this a Luxury Home, but a very comfortable place to stay. One really feels at home at our home in the mountains. The Home is located right next to Sky Tavern Ski Area, which the builder of this home also Built. There is so much history for the area and Ski resort. Sky Tavern was the first Ski resort in all of the Sierras. We Love to speak to future guests. Feel free to phone me, Mark at 619-303-4687

About mark hoffing

We have been coming to Mt Rose Ski Area for over 12 years. We had the wonderful opportunity to purchase this Rustic Mountain Home just around the curve from the Ski Area. We want to share our good fortune with You. Feel free to phone me, Mark at 619-303-4687

mark hoffing purchased this house in 2012

Why mark hoffing chose Reno

So comfortable Like Camping in the middle of the forest, but just a few hundred yards off the main highway. It is like stepping back a little in time and having all the comforts of home in the forest. Enjoy the forest, hiking, mountain bike riding, Skiing, Snowboarding, & Sledding, right outside of our home. Please note: If you inquire but do not make a payment, your dates remain open and not reserved.

What makes this house unique

One Renter said he felt like he was in a Museum. It is a lot like going back to the 1950's & 1960's in the decor.

The cabin was cozy, clean and had wonderful views.

  • 5 of 5

Like others have commented the decor is dated but it adds to the charm. It had everything we needed including a beautiful snowfall in September! It was convenient to Reno and Incline Village and the quiet of the area was restorative. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Beautiful view and great warm house

  • 5 of 5

Had a little problem finding it called the manager found out I was just next door. Other than that it’s a perfect rental at a amazing price and location. Loved the old charm and great furnace and hot water. Would love to stay there next year when we come back for street vibrations.

Owner's Response: Yes, the house is a little off the beaten track, which makes it a great hideaway. Glad you enjoyed your stay. We love our Mountain home, and are very glad to share it.

Excellent rustic house

  • 4 of 5

Fabulous views of Reno. Wonderful sunrise and sunsets. Very comfortable. A little rough around the edges but would definitely stay there again. Curtis at the ski shop is a big help.

Not luxury, but had everything we needed for a pleasant stay.

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice stay at this place and would go back. Be advised that it is dated (70s?) and not luxurious, but clean and has some interesting touches. The highlight is the picture window looking through the big pines all the way down to Reno. Sunrises spectacular. We would go back.
