Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms – 2 ½ Bathrooms – Loft – Sleeps 8 – Meeks Bay VRBO #694722

The House - Welcome to our "Meeks Bay Lake House." Two large decks and a complete wall of glass give you panoramic vistas day and night of beautiful Lake Tahoe. Location! Location! Location! Only a five minute walk gets you to the pristine and sandy Meeks Bay beach during the summer and a 10 minute drive to the Homewood Mountain Resort for skiing/snowboarding in the winter. This house is thoughtfully and meticulously stocked with everything you and your family need to experience an effortless and memorable vacation.

From the carport, walk down 10 steps to one of three entrances to this updated split level home. The main level is designed as a "great room" which allows visibility throughout the dining area, kitchen and living areas. The dining area has a rich mahogany table that can seat 8 people comfortably and is at one end of the great room. Located off the dining area is a full bathroom with a large shower. On the other end is the living area complete with gas fireplace, flat screen TV and the wall of glass that allows you to be outside, even if you're in. the expertly equipped and vacation easy kitchen is centrally located adjacent to a game table, which doubles as another eating area. Step outside to one of the two ample decks, where unobstructed and breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe immediately soothe and rejuvenate.

Downstairs are three bedrooms, laundry area and a full bath with double sinks and a tub/shower combination. Each of the bedrooms has a queen size bed, two of which have double French doors that open to the second spacious and private deck. Keep the doors open during the summer to enjoy the gentle breeze off the lake and a view that is "out of this world!"

The great room is connected by a spiral staircase to a half bath and loft, which is used for a playroom, sleeping area and/or office. The loft will sleep two people, one on a day bed and the other on an electronic inflatable airbed.

A very short drive from Highway 89, the A-frame house sits on a sloped 1/3 of an acre which also has a flat area to one side, used as a barbecue patio and play area.

Summer at the “Lake House” - Want to get out of the house and off property? It’s a 5 minute walk to Meeks Bay beach and marina (rental boats, kayaks & paddleboards), a 10 minute ride to Emerald Bay, the Vikingsholm and the trail-head to Eagle Lake, 15 minutes to Kilner Park with tennis courts and climbing structures, 20 minutes to Tahoe City, 30 minutes to Squaw Valley and 40 minutes to Truckee. Bikes are available to rent at Meeks Bay, Homewood, Sunnyside and Tahoe City and there are paved bike trails from Meeks Bay all the way to Squaw Valley. Other exciting adventures include river rafting down the Truckee River and visiting the Tahoe Treetop Adventure Park at Granlibakken for zip-lining. The peace and serenity of our "Meeks Bay Lake House" is matched by the vast array of fun outside activities nearby.

Winter at the “Lake House” - Whether the sun is shining or the snow is falling, Lake Tahoe is beautiful all year round. Come to the “Meeks Bay Lake House” for winter sports, but still enjoy the picturesque views that Lake Tahoe offers. Caltrans and El Dorado County plowed roads and daily clearing of the parking deck make access to the house during winter very easy. The Homewood Mountain Resort, a family friendly ski resort, is a mere 10 minute drive away. Drive 30 minutes and you’re at the base of either Alpine Meadows or Squaw Valley. Want even more variety? Northstar is a 45 minute drive and both Sugarbowl and Diamond Peak are less than an hour away. If you’re a cross country skier, ski trails are located at both Sugar Pine Point State Park (12 minute drive) and Tahoe City. Now that’s a lot of skiing! Sledding is available at Homewood, Granlibakken and Squaw Valley. We are open to a ski lease for the “Meeks Bay Lake House” during the 2017-18 ski season.

About Allan and Robin Colman

Lake Tahoe has always been special to our family. As children, this is where we spent our family vacations. Now it has been our children's turn to live their summers and ski vacations at Tahoe. Our hope is that while staying here you will feel that sense of home and tranquility that our family has enjoyed at our "Meeks Bay Lake House" for so many years.

Allan and Robin Colman purchased this house in 1975

Why Allan and Robin Colman chose Tahoma

The west shore of Lake Tahoe is a special place. It's friendlier, less crowded and the pace is slower than other areas on the lake. The proximity to all that Tahoe has to offer is just a short distance away: Walk to Meeks Bay Beach, drive mere minutes to our favorite ski resort of some of the best hiking in Lake Tahoe or 11 miles to Tahoe City for excellent restaurants and shopping.

The family-centric layout of the "great room" and connecting deck facilitates easy communication, visibility and entertaining. Once here, it will be immediately apparent that it's all about the lake. It is what caused our family to buy this lot with it's majestic view, build our beautiful home, and keeps Tahoe in our hearts wherever we are.

Classic Upgraded Tahoe A-frame with Fantastic View

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our time at this comfortable Meeks Bay cabin. It has a nice location away from the madding crowd, but not too far from services and amenities. We're looking forward to our next stay.

Owner's Response: Tom, We are always delighted that visitors to our Meeks Bay Lake House enjoy their stay. And you have described the location perfectly, in a quiet neighborhood on the lake, but close to skiing, restaurants, beaches and fun. We look forward to welcoming you all again. Sincerely, Robin and Allan

Overall, very nice stay for a family, good location, kid friendly

  • 4 of 5

Pros: amazing view of the lake, good location for easy in/out and walking down to Meeks Bay, spacious living area, kid friendly/kids playroom upstairs

Cons: vertical layout with only one bathroom for three bedrooms downstairs (second bathroom is on living floor), decor a bit dated

  • Submitted: Jan 2, 2018
  • Stayed: December 2017

Owner's Response: Glad your overall stay was good for your family, the location and is certainly kid friendly. When we added the 3 new bedrooms, bath and laundry room several years ago, the building code limited us to only one bathroom/double sinks on that floor. We know it may be a bit inconvenient, but hopefully the spectacular view and nearby beach overcome. Hope to see you again next year.

Great place, great host

This place is lovely. Will was a terrific host, and very diligent in helping us sort out a few arrival issues. The coziness of the house and the stunning position made our long weekend special.

Great weekend escape.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great birthday celebration with breathtaking views of the lake. I could spend an entire month laying out on that deck.

Owner's Response: We're happy that you were able to "catch the sun" on the deck during October. It has been a beautiful fall with tremendous weather. It's starting to get a little colder now as we prepared for winter at the lake. Also a great time to stay at the "Lake House." Thanks for your review and please come back!

A beautiful lakeside home with amazing views and sunrises.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this property. The location is amazing close to Meeks Bay and the owner, Will, is highly accommodating. It was perfect for our 6 person party that included two young kids - there is even a play room! Thanks for letting us stay Will.

Beautiful house and location!

  • 5 of 5

Views over the lake were to die for. The house had everything we needed. We walked to the beach and shopped in Tahoe City while the guys golfed. Visited Emerald Bay and Taylor Creek Visitor Center. It's all about nature!
