About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Enjoy relaxed living on a bluff above Lake Tahoe. Nestled in a hollow out of the prevailing wind, every room in this home looks out over the lake, with views across Crystal Bay Point and along the beautiful east shore. Be amazed by every mood the lake has to show, from the sun line rising on the Eastern Sierra to spectacular full moon nights which can be enjoyed from the private hot tub on the deck. Each room is tastefully decorated and the beds have high thread count linens, down comforters, and lots of soft pillows.

Our open floor plan has a master suite with queen bed upstairs off the living room/great room. The remaining bedrooms (second master suite with queen bed, and two queen bedrooms) are downstairs off the family room. We have a wonderful wood stove in the family room that heats the whole house and firewood is provided. The attached apartment has 1 queen bed in the bedroom with interior access to the apartment from the main house, as well as from the garage.

With 3500 sq. ft. of total living space there is room for everyone. There's a two car garage and plenty of off street parking. Enjoy High Speed Internet/Wi-Fi and Cable TV through out the home. We are located just one block from the lake, close to ski areas and casinos, Garwoods and 7-Eleven are just down the road.

About Dave Jones

We were very lucky to find Tahoe at a young age. We fell in love and were married, raised three kids who now have pursued careers outside of the Tahoe basin. While we have loved this home and lived in this home we have found that it is time to share it with others. You will find our place to be a comfortable, quiet space, perched on a bluff away from the prevailing winds. Be sure to watch the sunline rise on the eastern Sierra opposite us until evening arrives. Our home has hosted many family gatherings so we know that whatever your event is you will be comfortable and cozy, together but not crowded,

Dave Jones purchased this house in 2004

What makes this house unique

Our house is centrally located with ski areas located to the east and west of us as well as the best beaches only 10 minutes away. We have walking and biking trails that leave right from our house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

As always, we had a wonderful stay. Thanks you for sharing your home. We absolutely love it here. The accomodations are excellent. Hope we can be regulars. The I Family

Amazing property with incomparable views of Lake Tahoe!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here and will definitely be back! The view of the lake is truly breathtaking! There was plenty of room and with a floor plan that provided both privacy and space for gathering. Very clean and a lot of attention to detail. The owner was very gracious and easy to work with.

Thanks, Sherri!

Great Tahoe Retreat

Our family loved this home. The view is hands down one of the best on the lake. The home was over all very clean and everything was decent shape. We are definitely coming back!

Stellar Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The home is really perfect for an extended family! We had a great time! On one afternoon the owner came over because we had accidently left the garage door open, and she was worried about the bears. We were very grateful for the personalized attention paid. We would highly recommend this home for a tranquil and cozy retreat!

Lake Tahoe Beauty

  • 5 of 5

Janna and Dave shared their home with my family over an extended Memorial Day weekend. Our family consists of 7 adults and one baby. All the necessities were provided to get us started -even a portacrib and a high chair - much appreciated. Beds were comfortable and outfitted with fresh linens. Sparkling clean towels for everyone.

The house itself just gorgeous with spectacular view of the lake. An attached apartment was perfect for my daughter and her husband with their 10 month old baby. We were in the hot tub daily after our busy days on the lake. The kitchen was more than well equipped. We cooked big breakfasts and my daughter even baked.

The house is located perfectly for all Lake Tahoe activities. We hiked, sailed, skied, swam (yes, it was cold!) and just relaxed in the beautiful Carnelian Bay. Restaurants and shops nearby.

Highly recommend this home! Best family vacation yet!

Awesome property

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful! It's got a great view of the lake and is easy to find. It was very clean and well equipped and a great place to visit with 10 friends! It even snowed when we were there on May 5, 2017 which was stunning. There was plenty of room for parking with 2 cars in the garage and 3 cars in the driveway. This is the perfect place to entertain a group. If you are thinking of staying in Tahoe, this is the perfect place to choose!
