Mountain Postcard is a cozy 3 bedroom, 2 bath home that backs up to South Lake Tahoe's most beautiful meadow. In the meadow the Upper Truckee River splits and runs right through the meadow from two different directions making a photo worthy view! To top it off the horizon is dominated by a 180 degree view of snow-capped mountains. Our cozy home comfortably accommodates a maximum of 6 guests. We offer short term rental bookings throughout the winter season and consider longer term bookings during the Spring, Summer and Fall.
Situated right in town and secluded for privacy you will find direct southern exposure enabling you to enjoy the changing colors of the day. Relax and curl up in the comfort of our comfortable sofas to read while enjoying the meadow view or hike straight out from the house to breath in the fresh mountain air. Our surrounding trees have numerous species of birds jumping and flying with colors and calls.
Our focus is to provide every comfort for your stay. Our home is outfitted with high quality linens, towels as well as comfortable beds and furniture. Adding to the coziness and warmth, the walls and ceilings are finished with aged clear-heart redwood and knotty pine. You will also find a gas fireplace insert providing the sought after mountain ambiencewithout the work of building a fire.
The kitchen adjoins the dining area and offers the same tremendous views while you prepare breakfast or pack a lunch for the days outing. You will find all the cooking utensils, pots and pans as well as paper goods, herbs and spices and condiments you may need.
We also have a teak table, chairs and gas grill on the back deck overlooking the meadow and river facing south.
There are numerous restaurants from delicious local taquerias to 5-star for dining in or taking out if you want to spend your time away from the stove. Our back deck provides a place to lounge in the summer months and a short walk out the back gate offers a walk along the river.
In the summer, we are close to numerous beaches, biking and hiking trails as well as several golf courses to choose from. In winter you are less than 10 minutes to Heavenly Ski Resort. Additional ski options you will find are Sierra-at Tahoe 15 miles up the pass or Kirkwood a beautiful 45 minute drive over Luther Pass and through Hope Valley.
Visiting in the Spring is beautiful as the wildflowers bloom and the trees show off their light green array. Autumn brings with it a myriad of fall color that makes some hiking trails sincerely glow.
We are located just 10 minutes from the California/Nevada state line where you will find a variety of top-notch entertainment options from restaurants to music and comedy shows, casinos and cinemas. Leaving our home in either direction you will find accessible grocery stores and specialty shops to suit your every need.

About the owner: Our family of four has enjoyed our mountain home as a get away for decades with many memories as well as romantic weekends for just the two of us. With our children now grown and the balancing of our schedule demands, we have decided we would like to share the joy that we have had at our cozy mountain home with others. Our house is outfitted as our primary home with all creature comforts. We hope that you enjoy it as much as we have and make it a yearly travel/holiday tradition.
Why the Owner Chose Sierra Tract (South Lake Tahoe, CA, USA):
It's like walking into a jewel in the woods right within the conveniences of South Lake Tahoe. We looked far and wide for months for a unique home for our family. The day we found this home, we opened the front door to reveal the treasure inside of wood walls, beam ceilings, mountain and meadow views and above all, warmth, character and charm. We looked no further!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is conveniently located in town and feels like a private cabin in the woods. When closing the front door behind you, you will be in the forest among the meadows, mountains views and Upper Truckee River at the back door. We have suited our house with quality furniture to make comfort the top priority for our guests stay. The kitchen is fully stocked with ample utensils and a nice big dining table viewing the meadow for beautiful sunrises and especially, sunsets.
