Property description

If you like being away from the crowds, this is the place for you!

Heavy snows this winter left behind fresh mountain streams, lakes and waterfalls, wildflower meadows and lots of open space to explore.

Great home in the mountains. Super location in the heart of awesome alpine beauty.

With our affordable rates this is the perfect time to treat yourself to summer fun!

The home, which is at 6700 feet elevation, is conveniently located off Highway 50 in Phillips, CA. South Lake Tahoe is a short 12 miles east and we're about 85 miles from Sacramento.

We invite you to share the wonder of the high sierra's of California in the comfort of our modern mountain home located in the small community of 50 homes tucked into the woods along the headwaters of the American River. The soaring windows in the great room and the expansive deck showcase the beauty of the alpine environment - rugged mountains and tall trees surround this peaceful retreat.

With wireless internet, get your work done while you enjoy this wonderful retreat.

We are close to Lake Tahoe yet in a special environment away from the crowds with lots of open space to explore. The alpine setting high in the Sierra Nevada mountains places our guests in a unique setting: enjoy the freedom of walking through the woods, playing in our local meadow, or read a book by the fire and enjoy the view, followed-up by a cozy nap. Plus, you'll only be minutes away from South Lake Tahoe so you can easily enjoy all the excitement Tahoe has to offer.

Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall - there's plenty of opportunities for recreation, relaxation and rejuvenation. Whatever your pleasure -skiing, riding, hiking, biking, fishing, boating, ATV riding, rock climbing, golfing - you'll have it all....Sierra at Tahoe,Desolation Valley, Echo Lake, Lake Tahoe, Pacific Rim Trail, high alpine lakes and streams.

Just pack up your personal items and food.....our home is ready for your visit.

If arriving by air, we are approximately 95 miles from the Sacramento airport. Flights are also available into Reno and San Francisco.
