Come stay at your own private ski chalet at this beautiful two bedroom Olympic Valley condo - just steps from Squaw Valley Ski Resort! This prime location is across the street from the Tahoe Bike Trail, and in winter you can walk to the lifts.
Located all one one level, the great room features a stunning stone-faced, wood burning fireplace, corner windows for an exceptional view, and a buttery leather sofa for relaxing. Borrow a book from the shelf for some late night reading in front of a toasty warm fire, or sit back and watch a DVD on the flat screen TV. There's also cable, so you can catch a game or sit back and surf the channels. Of course you can always just enjoy the beautiful tree-lined mountain view.
The dining room table is set up by windows overlooking Squaw Creek, and is just off the kitchen for easy meal preparation and serving. In the kitchen you'll have all the basic appliances, including a dishwasher. On chilly nights, you can come back from the slopes and heat up a big pot of coconut curry or roast a chicken in the oven. Of course, there are also plenty of restaurants to choose from for an apres ski snack.
Right off the living room is a nicely-sized patio for relaxing outdoors when you're not out hiking, biking, or skiing. Sit out here with a glass of wine in the evenings, or sip your morning coffee while you listen to the sounds of the birds waking up.
One bedroom brings a bit of the outdoors inside with a warm, snuggly quilt and wildlife themed accessories. Settle back in the red and black plaid chair with a book, or open up your laptop and use the WiFi to check email before bed. There's also a TV in this room, plus an attached full bathroom.
A kid's room is just down the hall has twin over full bunk beds and an additional twin trundle bed, and a comfy butterfly chair. An additional full bathroom has a walk-in shower. This home will sleep up to six guests in comfort, and also welcomes one well behaved dog for an additional pet fee.
Other amenities include a private washer and dryer for guest use (no more trying to dry wet socks in front of the fireplace!), and an iPod dock. But probably the best amenity of all is the no-hassle, dream of a location! Once you arrive and park your car in your numbered parking spot, you'll be able to walk right to the lifts and explore the area on skis, foot, or bike tires.
Squaw Valley is a world-class skiing destination with 3,600 skiable acres and six peaks, including night terrain for skiing a 3.2 mile mountain run. And when you're ready to put down the skis or snowboards for the day, the Village at Squaw Valley offers shopping and dining - there are even yoga classes at Wanderlust Yoga Studio. Before heading back to your cozy Christy Lane Condo, if you don't grab a full meal, at least stop at Batch Cupcakery and pick up the evening's dessert. And if you want to mix it up a bit, from here you are only about seven miles from Alpine Meadows for even more skiing and snowboarding options.
In summer, take an aerial tram ride at Squaw Valley Resort up 8,200 feet and enjoy panoramic views of the mountains and amazing, blue Lake Tahoe. There are plenty of activities up here at High Camp, including ice skating, a swimming pool (additional fees may apply), and dining options. There are also hiking opportunities to be found - just grab a trail map before you head up.
Other activities include golfing at the Resort at Squaw Creek, a bike ride on the Tahoe bike trail - it follows the Truckee River all the way to Lake Tahoe in Tahoe City. And if you do want to go on a drive, pack the car up with a picnic, and drive the seven miles to one of Tahoe City's beautiful lakeside, sandy beaches.
For a memorable ski getaway or a hiking and biking adventure, this Lake Tahoe vacation rental in Olympic Valley is sure to please. Bring the whole family (four-legged member included!) or plan a romantic weekend getaway for two and escape year-round to the beautiful Tahoe region.
