In the wintertime...we're close to all your favorite ski resorts. We're minutes away from the slopes of Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley. The Alpine Meadows shuttle picks up near our unit. We're close to Hwy 89 so getting on shuttles to other resorts is easy too.

My wife and I purchased this condo in Jan '05 and spent most of 2005 remodeling it. We welcomed our first guest Dec. 17th, 2005. Here's some comments from guests who have stayed at our condo:

Kimberli B. from San Anselmo, CA: 'We had a terrific time at your condo near Alpine Meadows. Everything worked perfectly. The room setup was very good and we really appreciated your towels and linens. The whole place was really very well equipped. The proximity to Alpine Meadows meant that we could take the shuttle up the hill, when our 2-wheel drive van couldn't make it. We look forward to staying again next year.'

Andy G: 'This was a great experience. The rental process was smooth, straight forward, and delivered as promised. 7 of us stayed in the condo and found the kitchen well stocked with cooking utensils, we found we were plenty warm with the pellet stove and floor heaters, there were plenty of towels, the place was very clean and roomy, and the hot tub was an added bonus. We enjoyed a 10 minute drive straight to Alpine Meadows Resort as well as being only minutes from main roads/freeways. Thanks for helping make a very fun vacation.'

Sonal P. from San Francisco: 'We had a great time-thanks for renting the condo to us! My friends loved the place!...Thanks for the clean linens and towels!! We hope to be back in the future sometime and will certainly be referring others to your listing!'

About Mark

We're a family of 5....Mark & Diane plus our 3 daughters. We live in Reno and love spending time at Lake Tahoe.

We also have other North Lake Tahoe rentals, email or visit our web site BestTahoeRentals dot com

Mark purchased this condo in 2005

Why Mark chose Alpine Meadows

Lake Tahoe is the perfect vacation destination with great year round recreation. The north shore of Lake Tahoe is nice because it is less crowded than south shore and we really enjoy getting on the bikes & riding into Tahoe City & along the West shore of Lake Tahoe.

What makes this condo unique

There's a new year-round hot tub on our deck with a great view of the stars and the Sierras. The summertime pool in the complex is seldom crowded. The complex also has lots of open space & there's even a short hike behind our complex that is great for small children. The River Ranch is a short walk for great dining & drinks or stop by the deli across the street for breakfast & lunch overlooking the river. Great hikes, biking, and playing in the Truckee River are all a short distance from our condo.

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our stay. We were on a Mountain Bike Trip and we had plenty of room to store our bikes in the garage. Super clean. The hot tub was perfect for after ride therapy! I would definitely come here again.

Close to Squaw Valley and Supplies

  • 5 of 5

There were five of us on this trip. Wife, two teen daughters, and my sister. We opted to have the teens stay in the master bedroom as it has the second futon bed separate from the king bed around the corner. This was a great option as they had more privacy (ie, we didn't see their clutter) and we didn't need to go up another set of stairs given the amount of hiking that we were doing. My wife and I were in the queen bedroom and sister was in the bunk room. It was great having the separate spaces for everyone.

The kitchen and family room remodel is very nice with new flooring and appliances. Plenty of room for the five of us to prepare meals as well as relax. Lots of pots, pans, and small appliances.


Hot tub: My sister (60) was the only person to use the hot tub and she said it was nice but the cover was heavy for her.

Laundry: Having the washer and dryer was a great help as this was the first stop on a long trip so we were able to leave with fresh gear.

Summer travel: We were there in late June so it was pretty warm during the day. Upon arrival, there were two baseboard heaters on, so check that first when you arrive. Once turned off, upstairs windows and patio door opened, it cooled off nicely.

Owner: Very timely with initial booking email and email 24 hours prior to arrival. Provided clear notes about the property. Responsive to email within minutes.

Restaurant: There is a restaurant (Riverview) within walking distance. We only took advantage of it once and wish we had taken more meals there! Service was excellent. Menu had a wide-range of choices (Elk, Salmon, great salads, and of course chicken fingers).

Grill: Tank was full, cleaning and cooking tools were provided. Cooked our brats and hot dogs well, not sure I would try anything delicate on it. I am a bit of a germ-a-phobe so a stainless grate would be a nice improvement.

Beds: Everyone slept well. Beds seemed to be fine. We also skied (yes, in June) as well as did a lot of hiking so the fresh air and exercise made sleeping easy.

Neighbors: Only saw one family during our three day stay. They were pleasant.

Pool: It was being filled during our stay so cannot comment. If this is a big part of your plans, ensure that you connect with the owner in advance.

Our family enjoyed this location very much. As we had many days of vacation to go, we left relaxed and re-charged.

Large, but dated.

  • 3 of 5

Well located. Adequately equipped but decor, furniture, appliances, towels, bedspreads, and carpeting need replacement. Jacuzzi well maintained and clean. Unit would be fine for a large group that doesn't care about old carpets. Excellent directions and instructions.

Owner's Response: In June 2017 (after Stuart checked out) we remodeled the kitchen, installed new high end appliances with slab granite countertops, hickory cabinets & new flooring. The condo is much nicer now! Thanks.

Perfect Ski Chalet

  • 5 of 5

On the access road to Alpine Meadows, your own hot tub on the deck overlooking the mountains, a well-equipped kitchen that even has beer in the fridge, a cozy pellet stove, plenty of comfortable beds plus several portable beds for extra guests, a pool table, washer and dryer, large dining table for group meals, and an authentic mountain camp feel. What could be better?

For our group that has been traveling for ski trips since 1985, this was a gem. Mark is communicative and helpful. When one of us forgot to pack a small item on check out, he was right on it to mail it - an easy one to blow off for many other renters.
