Combie House is a water skier and outdoor enthusiast paradise!

Fantastic lakefront home in the Sierra Foothills with dock for your boat.

Spend your getaway on the lake at this water skier and outdoor enthusiast paradise! Combie is not a private lake, but there is no public access, and homes are usually situated on acreage making this one of the premier waterskiing/water sports lakes anywhere. There’s a ski slalom course, great fishing, and it’s an ideal locale to bring your paddle boards, kayaks and lake gear for fun and exploration. It’s the perfect vacation rental for summer fun and close enough to the slopes for winter getaways!

Combie House has 4 bedrooms plus a bonus room, loft area, and 3 full baths. Located on the main floor is the kitchen, living room and dining area, Master Bedroom with a king bed, 42” flat screen TV and private bath with large jetted soaking tub and separate shower, Guest Room #1 with a king bed, and a full Guest Bath with shower and jetted tub. Located on the second floor is Guest Room #2 with a queen bed, Guest Room #3 with a queen bed, a Bonus Room off one of the guest rooms with a twin trundle, Loft area with queen sofa sleeper and Guest Bath with shower.

Take in lake views, breath taking sunsets and cozy up by the gas fire pit on the deck, cool down in the pool’s waterfall and grotto, and relax in the spa. Out by the pool you’ll also find the outdoor kitchen, outdoor tv, gas and charcoal grills, a wood burning outdoor fireplace, tiki bar and plenty of places to gather and lounge.

Indoors you’ll find a well-appointed kitchen with stainless steel appliances, gas cooktop and double oven. The dining table seats eight with an additional leaf and chairs to seat up to 12. There are three built in recliners in large leather sectional sofa, a 55” flat screen TV with Directv and sound bar, and Wi-Fi.

About Tom Granieri

I grew up in Los Altos Ca and moved to the Auburn area in the late 80s before relocating to Scottsdale AZ in 2014 due to my wife's work. I am a general building contractor and enjoy building.

Tom Granieri purchased this House in 1998

Why Tom Granieri chose Meadow Vista

See pictures and I think you will agree this is one of the greatest places to relax and recharge.

                                                              What an incredible place! Tom is a great host and went out of his way to make sure we felt like his home was our home for the weekend.

                                                              He was there to greet us and show us how to use the pool, hot tub and the wifi set up for both the pool area and the house. We have used VRBO for several years now for family reunion weekend vacations. All who gathered this year agreed this is by far the best!

                                                              Perfect for Intimate Family Gathering!

                                                              My family had a most wonderful stay, celebrating my Mom's 70th birthday weekend. We greatly enjoyed spending time at the home; swimming in the waterfall pool, kayaking on the private lake, BBQ'ing and meals outside on the patio, seeing the wildlife, the comforts of the home, and the peace and tranquility of the location. It was also perfect distance to drive to our 1-day river rafting excursion on the Middle Fork of the American River. There were 3 children (8, 3 and 1) in our family who loved the pool and exploring the property as well. We look forward to staying again!

                                                              For us, my Husband, I and our 2 teen boys, this was an all inclusive private resort and only a 2 hour driving distance from our Bay Area home. Soft beds, warm feelings of home, beautiful sunsets and a boat launch where we were able to keep our own boat. Charming market close by and Historic Auburn just Down the road.

                                                              I can't wait to go back!
