About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Forest Retreat:
This comfortable, cozy cabin is conveniently located off Hwy 267, in the lovely Kingswood Estates neighborhood. The four bedroom and three bath home is 2,400 square feet of luxury mountain living, tastefully decorated in a casual and eclectic style with EVERYTHING upgraded. The stone fireplace is outfitted with a gas insert, for quick warmth and ambiance at the touch of a button. The upgraded kitchen is fully equipped with a restored, 1946 O'Keefe & Merritt range, Sub-Zero refrigerator, KitchenAid dishwasher, stainless GE wall oven/microwave, and countertops of Granite & Caesarstone with a tumbled marble backsplash. The bathrooms are all upgraded and improved, with granite tops, slate tile flooring and rustic tile showers. No room has gone untouched!
The property backs up to the national forest for a peaceful and relaxing setting. Cross country ski, or snowshoe, out the back door in winter, and hike, bike or jog through North Tahoe Regional Park in the summer. The bike/ski trail is accessed via a pathway through the forest behind the home. The 400-square foot deck boasts a stainless steel gas grill and a cable railing for unobstructed views of the tranquil forest.

Brockway Golf Course, Lake Front Beaches, Northstar Resort, and the North Shore Casinos are all just minutes away. For additional shopping and fine dining, the charming town of Truckee is a 15 minute drive, Tahoe City a 20 minute drive, or Incline Village a 10 minute drive.
The one and a half story home will sleep eight comfortably (maximum 8 guests total allowed). There are two queen bedrooms on the ground floor, including a new master suite, with private bath. The second queen room has a cozy feel, with a four-poster pine & iron bed and beamed ceiling. Across the hall is a fully renovated bath with a large glassed in shower. There are two bedrooms upstairs; one with a Lodgepole Pine queen bed and the second with 3 twin beds. An updated, shared tub/shower bathroom is between.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: As native Californians, we have been coming up to the Tahoe area for many years. We love the smell of the mountain air, and the natural beauty of the lake and forest. We decided it was time to upgrade from years of one day ski trips and summer camping at the State Parks, to comfortable beds and indoor plumbing!

Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Vista, CA, USA:
We've been hiking, biking, and skiing the north shore for over 30 years, and just love the area. When we began our home search, we just happened upon the Kingswood Estates neighborhood, and found this little gem (diamond in the rough) waiting by the forest. It's a quiet, quality neighborhood within a short drive to Truckee, Tahoe City, or Incline Village.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The National Forest view from the large back deck is one of the best features of our mountain get away. It's quiet and relaxing, and a great place to read a book, enjoy happy hour, or BBQ and dine outside with friends. You can also hike, bike or cross country ski right out the back door. Several ski areas, restaurants, and casinos are all within a 5-15 minute drive from the property.
