This recently renovated cottage is located one block from the lake in Kings Beach. The home has fun amenities such as a firepit, a bocce ball court and an outdoor dining area with BBQ.
Karen was a designer on TV. The other owner, Mikel, was her producer. They wanted a place in Tahoe that reflected the fun of SF and LA so they bought a cinder block bunker and completely rehabbed it.
The private fenced-in yard has a wonderful firepit for year-round campfires, a bocce ball court, hammock (in the summer) and an outdoor dining table and BBQ. Inside, there's a Nest digital thermostat to regulate the temperature, a 47' HDTV in the living room with Roku and Apple TV to play music or watch your favorite streaming shows (Free Netflix, Hulu and HBOgo) and Nintendo Wii. There's also a 32' HDTV in the queen sized bedroom. (Only streaming TV, no local channels or cable). If you're still bored, plenty of parlor games await you and in the winter, there's two toboggans at your disposal.
Down pillows, organic cotton bath towels and a Thermostatic 8' rain hood in the shower were all chosen to recreate a luxury hotel experience. The interior doors are salvage doors from SF Victorians, the coffee is from Blue Bottle, the floors are black bamboo and the walls are crisp new bead board.
This is a true getaway. You will have a house manager and handyman nearby if you need anything, but otherwise, we want you to make yourselves at home.
Besides being a block from the actual lake and Kings Beach State Park, you are a short drive to Northstar, Squaw, Alpine Meadows, Mt. Rose and Diamond Peak ski resorts as well as the casinos in Incline Village.
You are steps away from plenty of shops and restaurants in downtown Kings Beach and a 24 hour Safeway is a two minute drive or 8 minute walk.
There are beds for 4, maximum occupancy 6 (6 really only works with kids). The couch folds down into a full/queen which is comfortable for one adult or two children. Pets are also welcome and the yard is completely fenced in.
We are a one night minimum stay, but do ask for two nights if it includes Saturday. We will, however, waive this requirement if you're booking week of.
