About Klaus Heinemann

We had been looking for a place in the mountains that would work well both for summer and winter vacations. Views and privacy were on the wish list. At the end of a showing tour, our agent remarked something like ' ... and there is one more place that came on the market just today, I haven't seen it myself.' Well, already when we drove into the driveway, we both knew instantly that this was the one! The views were out of this world -- and our minds immediately started spinning how one could remodel the house to maximize the views from each room! When we stood in the living room, we were literally taken away by the views. We had our offer in within the hour ...

Klaus Heinemann purchased this house in 2003

Why Klaus Heinemann chose Truckee

We then embarked on a fairly extensive remodeling activity, converting conventional railings to tempered glass railings that would not break up those stunning views; adding another wrap-around deck on the garage level; enlarging the small windows of the two main floor bedrooms to expansive sliding glass doors, leading to the new deck and opening up to the same stunning views from each bed; and converting the dead space underneath to another master bedroom suite, with its own view deck and built-in hot tub.

What makes this house unique

attractive low pricing for small groupings; private setting; no power lines intersecting the views; dry sauna with view window; level street access to three garages; free Internet and phone (incl. free LD and international LD).

A-Mazing views, clean house, wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

What an Amazing home, the view from this house is spectacular!!! The owners were so great to work with us on a last minute vacation before my husband headed back to work (thank you again!)! The house is clean, and we had no troubles at all there. Feels like you are way out of town, but only about 5 minutes away. Very quite neighborhood. We will be back again! This is our new favorite vacation rental!

Stunning Views!

  • 5 of 5

What great views! Truly a great home for the price with plenty of amenities. Our only regret was not staying at the home longer to be able to take advantage of the decks/BBQ, Sauna and Hot Tub. We'll definitely be renting the home again!

2nd time renters are very satisified with our time at the Alta Vista Chalet

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year in a row staying at the Alta Vista Chalet. We are extremely satisfied with this beautiful vacation home!! The owner is friendly, and easy to work with---plus, the home is well laid out with plenty of room, and it is fully stocked with everything you want while vacationing at a rental property. The master bedroom & bathroom are very comfortable, and the great room & kitchen are perfectly laid out for our family get togethers. There are three levels in this home--with comfy bedrooms, and nice bathrooms on each floor. There are decks on each level, and the view is one of the best in the Lake Tahoe Region. There is a nice two car garage, and a 3rd garage door for "extras". Plus, there is a sauna right off of the inside of the main garage, and a hot tub on the lower level deck. The bathtub on the lower level is large & it has "jets" in it. Both times we have rented here the home has been clean & well maintained. For guests that enjoy hiking--you can walk about 1/3rd of a mile up the street, and take off from a trailhead. We hiked every day, and really enjoyed that activity. We are so satisfied with the Alta Vista Chalet that we are planning to rent here every year!! This is a great value, and I strongly recommend the facility!!

What a fantastic getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Its hard to explain all the features of this home. The pictures give it no justice whatsoever. My wife and I just wanted to get away, not to a hotel, not to any home, we wanted seclusion, and that is just what we got. On top of the highest peak overlooking the valley is this home. It was snowing when we arrived and the house was warm, that was a definte plus. We were also thankful it had some baby proofing equipment since we had a 15 month old with us. We were easy to please just sitting in the family room gazing out over the deck for 2 days. The owners were fantastic, very easy to communicate with and very quick to return out deposit. I will never stay in a hotel again. Thanks again.

The Alta Vista chalet is located 40 miles from Reno at 7300 feet elevation and has stunning vistas from every room and deck. The Northstar ski slopes are prominent in your southeastern views. You are close to the famous Tahoe-Donner cross-country ski facility. Less than a half-hour drive will take you to the world-class Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Northstar, and Sugar Bowl downhill ski resorts. During the summer season, desirable Donner Lake with its numerous recreational facilities is available. There are many spectacular hiking and biking trails and rock climbing possibilities nearby - leave your car in the garage of 'Alta Vista' and walk 400 yards to the trail head of the Donner Ridge trail system (great for mountain biking)! In winter, put on your cross country skis or snow shoes in the garage of Alta Vista, set your GPS, and discover miles and miles of high Sierra trails.

Other Activities: Snowmobiling, snowboarding, kayaking, lake and pool swimming, biking, shopping, wildlife viewing, rock climbing, boating

Golf: Guests of Alta Vista have access to the Tahoe/Donner Golf Course and other Tahoe/Donner recreational facilities, including tennis courts, swimming pools, fitness center, Downhill and Cross-Country ski areas, deeded beach and boat ramp at Donner Lake, for nominal fees.

Ski: Alta Vista is located in the Tahoe/Donner resort which has a world-famous cross-country ski area and a family oriented, inexpensive downhill ski area (one quad, one regular lift, two rope tows)
