About the Property

6 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom sleeps 16 people. 1 acre lot on quiet street!

The Skyhouse is a 6 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom luxury mountain estate with a million dollar view, one of the best locations in Lake Tahoe, and unparalleled comfort and amenities.

Located on an acre of land and backing onto National Forest preserve, just 400 walking steps (less than a quarter mile) from the California Base entrance to Heavenly Mountain Resort and only one mile from the lake, the Skyhouse is magically tucked away on a quiet low-traffic street, allowing you to easily have an exciting mountain adventure by day and a cozy rural retreat by night.

The Skyhouse includes a 3,200 square foot main house with five fully-equipped bedrooms and a separate 600 square foot en-suite master guest house. The two-car garage and a long paved driveway allow unprecedented parking and group accommodation, difficult to find in the Lake Tahoe area. The Skyhouse sleeps 16 people and accommodates up to 8 cars with off-street parking.

Enjoy fabulous views from every room in the house, the 20-foot vaulted windows in the living room, the new Hot Springs Spa® hot tub, the guest house's ski lift swing, and the three wrap-around decks.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: As California natives we have many fond memories of Lake Tahoe, including our first experiences with snow, skiing and kayaking as small children, and we are very happy to be able to create memories for others through sharing our wonderful home. Heavenly Starlight Skyhouse launched as a vacation rental in 2014. All of the design, furniture, and detail has been chosen by us to create a unique feeling of exciting mountain adventure by day and cozy mountain warmth by night. When deciding what to put on our blank canvas, we took our previous experiences as vacation renters to heart - addressing all of the “I wish it had…” and “wait...it doesn’t have what?” moments from our past vacations. As avid travelers, we have also had the privilege of spending significant time in the Alps in France, Switzerland, Italy, Austria and Germany. We are excited to bring elements that we discovered in our diverse and beautiful alpine experiences to the Skyhouse. We hope you will enjoy the warm light, fantastic views, peaceful quiet, awesome location, and personal touches of the Skyhouse as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose South Lake Tahoe, CA, USA:
We fell in love with it! Amazing location, fabulous views, unique architecture, beautifully appointed, unlimited possibilities!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There are gorgeous views from EVERY room in the house. Tons of natural light flows in at all times of day. The seamless flow between indoor and outdoor space gives you the best of both. It's 400 steps from the entrance to Heavenly, but on the side that doesn't have traffic. It's close to everything, but quiet and relaxing. On a whole acre backing on US Forest reserve land, it is a rare size in Lake Tahoe, and the 3 wrap around decks and large, very private back yard provide a unique amount of outdoor enjoyment. It's high enough on the slope that it gets more snow than the lake level - sometimes skiers get lost and end up in the yard. The Skyhouse is truly unique, yet it embodies all of the mountain wonders that made us fall in love with Tahoe!
