Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: My husband and I live in San Jose, and have been renting our two vacation rental homes in Tahoe since 2000. We often have our guests tell us that staying in one of our homes is more like enjoying a friend's Tahoe Cabin than a rental house. I make it our policy to have a beautifully clean, nicely decorated Tahoe Style home for your mountain vacation, winter or summer.

Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Vista, CA, USA:
Our Agatam Lodge house is located in Tahoe Vista, between King's Beach and Tahoe City, just up the rise from the neighborhood beach. The house sits away from the street giving our house and high deck a lot of privacy. This house is the closest one to the beach, and there is a filtered lakeview from the front deck. Location,location,location! This home is also very close to Northstar, about 10 minutes away, and 20 minutes to Squaw Valley.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
1 Block to the Beach! Walk to several great restaurants in Tahoe Vista. Great location for skiing Northstar and Squaw Valley. Right up the street are trails for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter. There is a sledding hill near the house at the North Tahoe Regional Park off of National Ave. Also tennis courts, baseball diamonds, disk golf, and a playground there, too, for summer fun.
