With 2 sliding glass doors, the sunny deck becomes an extension of the great room with lots of patio furniture, a BBQ, and privacy. There is a large 2-car garage with extra parking, and a 40-foot enclosed walkway provides easy access to your cars in the wintertime.

As you walk in the front door, you are greeted by a Spanish tile hallway leading to 3 bedrooms. There are 2 bedrooms with queen beds, each with a TV,  and a sliding glass door that exits out to a deck. Here you can enjoy a hot tub with wonderful views. In the wintertime, you can watch skiers shortcut home from Alpine Meadows through the front yard, and in the summertime, you can watch squirrels climb the trees. Down the hall are the laundry room, a full bath, the sauna area, and another bedroom with a queen bed, a twin bed, and a TV. The two-level sauna is a good size, with enough room to spread out in. Next to the sauna is a changing area with a ‘Finnish’ touch. Cool off in the shower room with four showerheads and a glass atrium that looks out into the forest. It’s a great way to end a nonstop day. The changing area is also connected to a full bathroom. There are bathrobes for your use during your stay here.

The second level is the great room and that it is. With 22-foot cathedral ceilings with floor-to-ceiling windows, you won’t be able to keep your eyes off the beautiful views of Twin Peaks.

This level has the kitchen, living area, and dining area, all looking out to the views. The granite countertop kitchen is fully stocked and overlooks the living and dining area. The living area has a leather sectional and faces a large stone fireplace and 55″ HDTV. The crackling sound of wood burning is a treat.

From all areas in the main area, you can watch TV, enjoy the fireplace and views, or socialize with the rest of your group.

Things To know

Where you’ll be

Tahoe City, California, United States

Located in one of the most desired neighborhoods on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe, you are walking distance to the backside of Alpine Meadows with privileges.  There is a private parking pass that will allow you to park right at the Sherwood lift, a quad high-speed chair at Alpine Meadows, and get on! Alpine Meadows allows the homeowners living in this neighborhood and/or guests to stay here without a ticket to ski to the front side to purchase it. And, the homeowners have their own snow grader which purposely leaves enough snow along the roads so you can ski home if you want to leave your group. Don’t ski? Enjoy the hut at the lift for morning coffee, lunch, or just watching all the activity on the hill. In the summertime, the cat tracks become a playground for mountain biking and hiking. Endless trails with lake views and wildflowers will keep you entertained. The snow melts into Ward Creek which is easily accessed from the house, known for its trout fishing.

Tennis? Yep…1 homeowner tennis court and 1 pickleball court.

Ward Valley is known for its peaceful setting of houses divided by forest land. The views are breathless. You have total peace at the house.

Lake Tahoe is 3 miles away with shops, restaurants, nightlife, and an array of activities. Tahoe City is the city to be in on the North Shore.

With Palisades Tahoe and Homewood at your doorstep, you won’t be able to ski a run twice. The winter months are a haven for skiing, snowboarding snow snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, and with its backdrop of the lake, you can’t beat the experience.

Summer is as good as winter. You are 10 minutes to the beach by Sunnyside Resort. The Truckee River opens its doors to the melting snow which offers a nice river for rafting. You can pick up your raft in Tahoe City and cruise down to River Ranch. It’s mild enough for the whole family. At River Ranch, there is a large outdoor deck with BBQ, an outdoor bar, and a great spot to watch the rafters. Raft one day, bike another. You can access the bike path from the house that meanders along the Truckee River to Truckee. River Ranch is a 1/3 of the way.

Tahoe City boasts Commons Beach, but some of the best beaches on the lake are found on the West Shore. Meeks Bay has a beach that will remind you of being in a cove somewhere in Hawaii, but with mountains. You’ll find pristine, crystal clear blue water,  a white-sand beach, the smell of tall pines, and views of mountains. It’s a wonderful setting for a picnic. Chambers Landing is known for the long pier/dock with a bar and restaurant at the end of it. This is where all the great wooden boats eventually stop for refreshment. The beach is beautiful here, and the entertainment is memorable. Can’t beat the lakefront restaurants! West Shore Cafe has dining on its pier There is a large deck, outdoor bar, and incredible food. Three miles from the house is Sunnyside Resort, with an outdoor deck, boat rentals, a pier.  It’s definitely a spot for an afternoon libation.

You’ll find a multitude of lakefront venues in downtown Tahoe City. Lake Tahoe is truly a special place, and this is a special house to enjoy it in.
