Our mountain lodge-style home in the Talmont Estates area of Tahoe City comfortably fits 8 adults, with beds for a couple more kids in a room off the Master. Hot tub, two wi-fi-connected TVs with blu-ray players (no cable service) and a ping pong table in the three car garage provide plenty of entertainment options for kids and adults. The fully-equipped kitchen is open to the living and dining areas, ideal for group meals. There's a good-sized deck with a propane BBQ directly off the great room. The house has two fireplaces--one in the master and one in the great room. "Peek-a-boo" views of Lake Tahoe from the great room and deck. The master bedroom and one guest bedroom are upstairs, down the hall from the great room. Two more guest bedrooms and an additional living area are downstairs--the additional living area is good for a kids play area. The house has wi-fi internet throughout.
Guests have access to the private Tahoe Park HOA beach area, with two piers, 850 feet of beach, swimming area (in the summer), volleyball court, BBQs, picnic tables, bocce ball, and horseshoes.
The Talmont Estates area of Tahoe City, where the house is located, is in the hills above the Northwest shore of Lake Tahoe, about a mile south of the intersection of highway 89 and W Lake Blvd (by the Save-Mart grocery store, the Dam Cafe). Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows ski resorts are approximately a 10-15 minute drive, Homewood is 5-10 minutes, Northstar is 35 minutes. Paige Meadows, with its extensive network of hiking and biking trails, is just 3 blocks walk from the house. Sunnyside Restaurant is down the hill.
The home has a three-car garage plus a driveway for parking. 4WD strongly recommended in the snow months.
