About the property

3-bedroom, 2.5 Bath, Mountain Home Just 8 Minutes From Tahoe City & Kings Beach!

This warm and bright home is perfect for entertaining with a great room/open floor plan, vaulted ceilings, and multiple large windows to enjoy the beautiful forest views. Step outside and take in the mountain fresh air on either of the two large decks that overlook the backyard. The location of this mountain home is ideal; close to Tahoe National Forest land, and just up the hill from Lake Tahoe, settled in a cute neighborhood.

Inside the home:

The main living space is upstairs on the 2nd floor. With the open floor plan the arrangement is great for entertaining and socializing. The spacious kitchen has a gas stove, dual ovens, a dishwasher, plenty of cabinets and counter space, and is fully equipped with all the necessary kitchen accessories. On the other side of the kitchen counter sit a few barstools, and the dining area with a nice wood and wrought iron table that comfortably seats 6. Also in this expansive great room is a brand new sectional sofa with chaise, and a large flat screen TV, ready with cable, wifi, a DVD player, and a Nintendo Wii system (several games & dvds also onsite). Just to the side of the TV watching area is another space to relax in front of the gas fireplace, set up with a warm throw rug, comfy armchairs and angled so two people can pleasantly enjoy a roaring fire or a good book.

Just off the great room is a wonderful deck for outdoor entertaining, in the non-winter months it is nicely furnished with lounge chairs, patio seating area, an umbrella, and two 3-burner BBQ grills. The stairs running down from the upper deck connect to the even larger lower deck, which houses the 6-person hot tub and grants access to the hammock.

Also on the 2nd floor is a half-bath in close proximity to the great room, and the master bedroom and bathroom. Within the master bedroom is a queen four-post bed, an armoire, and a large master bathroom with side-by-side sinks, a walk-in shower, and a Jacuzzi tub.

On the 1st floor is another full bathroom and two bedrooms both with queen beds, dressers, and plenty of closet space. The bedroom on the backside of the house has a sliding glass door that opens unto the lower deck with the 6-person hot tub. Also on the 1st floor is a washer and dryer for laundry, and access to the garage.

The garage has been quote-unquote, converted, into a game room which includes a beautifully crafted 8ft. pool table, regulation size ping pong table, and a staple-free bristle dartboard, great for adult socializing. Children are not permitted to use any of this equipment without direct adult supervision. The equipment is expensive and dangerous, please use with care.

Due to the garage being converted into a game room, it only allows for one regular-sized vehicle to be parked inside the garage. Any large or additional vehicles will need to be parked in the driveway, which can fit 4-6 vehicles depending on size and snowpack.

Entire house has SONOS speakers for seamless integrated music through the home.

Outside the home:

This home is in a perfect location for many interests and activities.

3 minute walk to Tahoe National Forest for hiking, mountain biking, and snowshoeing.

2 minute drive to Garwoods Grill & Pier and public beach.

8 minute drive to Tahoe City for the marina, shopping, restaurants, ect.

8 minute drive to Kings Beach for beaches, shopping, restaurants, ect.

20 minute drive to Squaw, Alpine, Northstar, and Homewood ski resorts.

**For this home location AWD/4WD capability is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED in snowy winter months**

Sounds like the perfect Tahoe retreat because it is just that… perfect.

About Sandy Metivier

I enjoy movies, music, and good food. I am a poker fanatic, entrepreneur, social worker, and a snowboarder. I'm happily married and we love to travel together, and we fully enjoy our Tahoe trips.

This new house in Tahoe may be new to the rental market, but we are not new to renting, and all our previous guests have been very happy with their stay in our Tahoe home, and other rentals... and you will too. I swear.

Sandy Metivier purchased this house in 2014

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time in Tahoe. We were very lucky for staying in North Tahoe our first time in Tahoe as it is has less crowds and the house was perfect for our group which was two couples. Sandy was a pleasure to work with....friendly and prompt . The house was exactly what I expected which was beautiful, clean, and had all we needed for our stay and more! We loved the outdoor area and grill .... The neighborhood dog named Thor visited every time we lit the bbq! We also love the spa after long days of riding on our Harley's it was a great way to unwind and relax. Sandy has thought of everything.... From beach chairs to poker chips this awesome house had it all. We are home safe but missing Tahoe. I was reluctant to give this house 5 stars as I want to keep this as our secret Tahoe spot for the future visits. But...I hope if you've booked it already you have the same wonderful stay as we did.

Perfect Tahoe House, complete with all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house. It was perfect for three couples - it's hard to find a place in Tahoe with a third queen bed rather than bunkbeds so this was awesome. It was impeccably clean, fully stocked, and so comfortable. Everything was as described in the listing. The location is great - right in between Tahoe City and Kings Beach, so you're surrounded by shopping and restaurants, and close to a bunch of great mountains (Squaw, Alpine, Northstar, Homewood, etc.). Sandy was a gem and responded quickly to every email and made sure we had a really easy, relaxing stay. This is going to become our new go-to Tahoe house. Loved it.

Love it. A must stay

  • 5 of 5

We went the end of January this year. There was sunshine, rain, and snow. They were there early to do snow removal, so getting in and out was easy. The house itself is spacious, yet cozy. You can either gather the whole family for dinner or games, or you can find your own nook, to read a book, or play the gaming system. The house stays nice and warm upstairs with the gas fireplace and the thermostat and space heaters are great to use in the down stairs before bed. The pictures of the master bath doesn't do it justice. Let's just say, fabulous. For the chef of your family, the kitchen is very well stocked with everything you need. Best stocked kitchen I've seen. The sound system is very nice and the individual rooms can be controlled from your smartphone. Our whole family enjoyed both the well kept hot tub and the game room in the garage. The owners are very friendly and easy to work with also.

Classic Tahoe Home close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this house with a bunch of close friends and we were really able to settle in and feel at home. The kitchen/living room is decorated with beautiful wood paneling and we had a nice time making meals and hanging out and having dance parties listening to the high-quality Sonos speaker system (You can play your own music through an app on your phone). The view off the back deck is lovely with lots of large trees and the hot tub is very hot and there is a nice view from there too. The house was just 10 mins to Carnelian Bay of Tahoe City where there were lots of great restaurants right on the lake. Sandy was very communicative and helpful before and during our stay and even recommended a delicious breakfast place - The Old Post Office Cafe. I hope to come back and stay here again the next time I visit Tahoe!

Gorgeous Cabin!! Highly Recommend Staying Here!!

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of speaking with the owner Sandy, who helped organize our stay at the cabin. From beginning to end, Sandy made sure the process was as easy as possible for us! My friends and I loved the spacious layout of this place, we each were able to have our own room and we were able to hang out together at night by the fireplace in the evening. As for the amenities... the hot tub was amazing, the hammock was relaxing and the "game room" in the garage was perfect!! In the mornings we ate breakfast on the beautiful (upstairs) back patio before talking leisurely strolls through the woods. We attended an event at a nearby park and went boating on the lake over the weekend; both activities were a very short drive away making the location of this cabin another bonus. Thanks to Sandy's super helpful info binder, we were easily able to find our way around Tahoe; I cannot wait to stay at this lovely cabin again soon!! Thanks so much Sandy!
