About the property

Close to a beautiful river. Quiet. Gated back yard great for pets and families.

A hiker's and mountain biker's dream. Fully gated large back yard good for pets and children. Walk to river and trails. Cozy, bright Christmas Valley home, large deck, large hot tub with view. Quiet town of Meyers near South Lake Tahoe and Hope Valley.

If you are looking for a giant Tahoe mansion, this is not it! If you are looking for a peaceful, bright, cozy, relaxing space to enjoy the snow and stars, and listen to Tahoe's wonderful mountain silence, this is your place. Our hot tub and view will soothe your mind and body all day and night. Unlike many Tahoe homes that are dark and hidden in the trees, this is a bright home with a spacious feeling.

Nestled in a star-studded valley surrounded by gorgeous mountains and forests, the home is conveniently snuggled under Echo Summit, the southern entrance to Lake Tahoe, in a Meyers neighborhood known as Christmas Valley. We are 15 minutes from Sierra-at-Tahoe (with clear roads) and we are the closest South Shore neighborhood to both Sierra and Kirkwood. We are a 10-minute drive to South Lake Tahoe and 10 minutes to Hope Valley.

Extra amenities:

Down comforters for all beds.

Large, high-end, low-chemical hot tub. No smelly bromine.

Wide-screen, hi-def TV

XBox 360

Dining table folds out to seat 6

Coffee maker

Various items for children: toys, puzzles, high chair, sleds, toddler bed rail, toy car, bouncy, etc.

We are a five-minute drive to about five popular hiking and mountain biking trails, including Tahoe Rim Trail, Christmas Valley Trail, Hawley Grade Trail, Mr. Toad's, Corral Loop, and others. There is a beautiful river a short walk from the house, with a flat approach perfect for walking with kids and/or dogs.

Cozy inspiration - relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The cozy home is so delightful you won't want to leave. The location is perfect. Nestled away in a quiet surrounds with everything close by to enjoy. The fireplace provided a really enjoyable ambiance of being up in the mountains and the hot tub has a perfect view of the beautiful mountains. The owners were always available for anything. Look forward to returning soon.

Item described perfect and quick responses from owner

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything an more that we could have asked for. We ended up going during a huge blizzard the first part of March and had everything we needed during our 4 night stay. a huge amount of toys kept our toddler entertained we never even had to bring in the back up toys we brought. The pictures do not do the space justice. The back yard is huge and we were able to see the kids from the back door slider and the kitchen window, fence line is very secure. The couch works, not the comfiest but works for a vacation home. the fireplace heats the home up nicely. many windows located on nearly every wall which lets in a perfect amount of daylight needed to enjoy the atmosphere.

There was an issue with the sink faucet leaking through a broken hose and it appeared other guest had stayed there and new about it and threw a pan under the sink which was not going to fix it, the owner was super quick and had a plumber out the same day who replaced it. There was a lot of condensation throughout the home- most likely due to single pane windows, but if you do have allergies to mold be aware. This is not the homeowners fault and you could tell they keep the home up very well but it is a concern for some and worth mentioning. We had no issues with this though

The hot tub was definitely nice and enjoyed during the snow storms. The power stayed on the whole time and we never had any other issues with the home. There was an extra amount of condiments and spices and kitchen items to use, it was a fully stocked kitchen and worked well making 3 meals a day in without complications.

We enjoyed our stay so much and will most likely book at this home for future stays in tahoe. The neighborhood was quiet and not in your normal hustle and bustle of lake tahoe which was perfect for a small family who was just looking for a week away in the snow and not the tourist items and busy streets you find closer to the lake.

I do wish there was an option to help plow the front door walkway and back yard but i do understand we got 8 feet of snow in 3 days. We did the best we could to clear a path and not track so much snow in from the back yard. Owner was quick to refund the security deposit within 2 days of our departure.

Thank you so much for having us!
