About the property

Sleeps 10. 4 Bedrooms. 3 Baths. Deck overlooks large backyard with tall pines.

We welcome you to our mountain retreat nestled in the tranquil woods of South Lake Tahoe. At 2300 square foot, this luxury home offers spaciousness for your family and friends, yet the quiet and intimacy you desire as you get away from the city. The house sits on a large fully fenced gently sloping 12,000 square foot manicured property, perfect for kids and adults to sled, play games, or just lounge around in a safe environment.

The home is located in Montgomery Estates, renowned for its central location close to ski resorts, lake, and casinos, yet tucked away amongst the woods. You are steps away from scenic hiking, mountain biking, snowshoeing, and cross-country trails that take you to the meandering Upper Truckee River, meadows, and vistas of Mt. Tallac. It’s not hard to find quiet and solitude here.

The home’s four large well-appointed bedrooms and three full-size bathrooms easily accommodate 10 people with room to spare. The master bedroom is exceptionally large with its own en suite bathroom with separate shower and tub. All rooms are bright and have large picture windows with views of majestic pines.

The chef’s kitchen comes with modern appliances, including ceramic cooktop, double convection oven, heating drawer, and dishwasher. Coffeemaker, blender, rice cooker, toaster oven, and hot water kettle come included. The cabinets are fully stocked with brand name cookware, bake ware, dinnerware and utensils, as well as cooking oil and spices to stir your creative juices. Enjoy dining with your whole family in the adjoining formal dining room.

Later, relax on the plush leather sofa in the living room as you watch TV or videos on the large screen plasma TV that hangs above the gas fireplace. For your enjoyment, we offer free wireless internet, cable TV with HD programming (includes HBO, Cinemax, and Showtime), Blu-ray DVD player, shelf sound system, as well as books and board games. While you’re enjoying the downstairs, send the kids upstairs to play in the game loft. There you will find a foosball table, PlayStation 3 console with games, and 40 inch LED Smart TV.

When you’re ready to step outdoors, go through the French doors to the backyard where you can experience the smell of pine as you drink your morning coffee on the large sunny deck. Kids and adults will enjoy the expansive lawn, which is perfect for sledding during winter or playing ball the rest of the year. A small playhouse and swing and slide set are available for the youngsters. Adults can hang up a hammock amongst the towering pines. End your day by cooking on the propane grill.

Additional amenities include indoor laundry room with washing machine and dryer, and space to park 4 cars (2 in the garage, 2 on parking pad).

We wish you an enjoyable stay at our Tahoe retreat. Absolutely no smoking or pets. Please be respectful of the quiet surroundings. No loud noises. This is not a party house.

About Carol Hu

Having lived in both Northern and Southern California, my family and I couldn't imagine a better four-season location to create new and lasting memories than Lake Tahoe. We look forward to sharing our delightful vacation home with your family as you create similarly fond memories for yourselves.

Carol Hu purchased this house in 2011

Why Carol Hu chose Montgomery Estates

Location, location, location. This lovely home is located in the quiet Montgomery Estates neighborhood just steps from hiking, biking, and cross country skiing trails. Yet it is also just a short drive to Lake, town, alpine skiing, casinos, and fine dining. You get to enjoy the best of Lake Tahoe without spending a lot of time and gas on travel.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this home in particular for 2 main reasons. #1 - It has an incredibly welcoming ambiance and layout that immediately relaxes you as you enter the front door. After all, isn't that why you head to the mountains? #2 - The gigantic fully-fence backyard is safe for children and provides ample space for all sorts of recreation - from frisbee in summer to sledding in winter. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

  • 5 of 5

Everyone loved it! Kitchen was well stocked! They even had toilet paper and paper towels for our entire stay for 10 people, I’d love to go back when it’s snowing! Like Christmas time. I would like to post a picture of all of us in front of house! How can I?

Perfect Home for our Family's Lake Tahoe getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The home was very clean and had everything that we needed! It was large enough that our family of 10 had plenty of space. The kitchen was well-stocked with pots n' pans, bakeware and even a rice cooker! Unfortunately, we had a few issues but Carol was very prompt in responding to us. We would definitely rent the Jacarillo property again!

The house was amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

We have no complaints about the house. There were a few minor house-keeping issues that came up, but they were so minimal, they did not affect our stay at all.

Long weekend in the snow

  • 4 of 5

House was a described. The kids loved playing in the snow in the large fenced backyard.

Kitchen was fully stocked for cooking. House was close to Heavenly so we could beat the rush.
