This gorgeous home in Brockway/Kings Beach is ideal for large groups and family reunions, but will also serve well for a luxury-seeking couple who could use the upstairs only. The mountain decor and unique decorating touches make this house feel far more like a friend-s vacation home than a rental house.
Rocky Retreat is located in a quiet, wooded, Old Tahoe residential area only a few minutes- walk from a lovely local beach, 3 minutes to larger Kings Beach (large even in high water years) and a short drive to 10+ North Tahoe ski/boarding resorts and cross-country ski areas. It combines privacy and serenity with easy accessibility to everything Tahoe has to offer.
The Great Room is expansive but cozy with its high vaulted ceilings, skylights, and many windows. A stone gas fireplace creates a cozy place where the whole family or group can come together to spend a relaxing evening after a day of fun.
French doors lead from the Great Room - Master Bedroom to a redwood deck with a very small view of the lake and a table and chairs perfect for enjoying a cocktail while watching spectacular sunsets over the lake.
Out a sliding door on the other side of the house is a large deck with a gas grill and a mammoth polished wood slab table that overlooks the garden.
The large gourmet kitchen is exceptionally well-equipped and is open to the Great Room and gracious dining area, so the cook (or cooks, for the kitchen is spacious enough to provide for many!) will never feel separated from the rest of the group.
Upstairs, on the same level as the Great Room and kitchen, is the Master Bedroom with a vanity area separate from the bathroom. The adjoining Master Bathroom-s shower is huge with 2 showerheads. [Please note that both bathrooms in the house will be remodeled in Spring of 2017.]
Downstairs there are 3 bedrooms and one bathroom. The Forest Room has a Queen bed; the Bunk Room has 2 sets of log bunk beds and the Garden Room has a Queen bed which looks out on the garden.
The fully enclosed, landscaped garden has a large hot tub under the deck where it is protected from the weather and teak garden furniture as well as a couple of chaise lounges.
Access is level, (- only one block off the highway-- but despite that, very quiet), snow load is lighter than in most parts of the Lake, and parking for 3 cars is easy.
Rocky Retreat had over 60 five star reviews which had to be eliminated because of changing property management companies. Guests have loved both the location and the house.
