Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: South Lake Tahoe is one of our favorite vacation spots. Tahoe has something for everyone; hiking, biking, boating, shopping, gambling, dancing, building sun castles, water and snow skiing, snowshoeing, ...

Why the Owner Chose Montgomery Estates (South Lake Tahoe, CA, USA):
Beautiful location and close to all of South Lake Tahoe's amenities. Most importantly you can get away from the crowds when you visit Bear Villa. Play in the snow and come inside for a cup of hot chocolate, coffee or tea. Retreat to the 1000 sq. ft. game room for a game of pool, air hockey, surround sound movie watching, board game playing, etc.. Short driving distance to the lake for fun in the sun.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Secluded area in a private location. Backs up to the National Forest, views from the dining room and breakfast nook, bedrooms and game room. Step outside and take a hike in the forest and experience nature. Enjoy the sound of Cold Creek from the tiered back decks and master bedroom. In the winter months bring or rent cross-country skis or snowshoes and enjoy the snow. There is a snow hill on the side of the house and snow toys for your enjoyment.
