This six bedroom, three bath, three-story chalet is the perfect getaway for both winter and summer. Located in Tahoe City, walking distance to the backside of Alpine Meadows Ski Area, at the Sherwood Lift high speed quad chair, you can walk there and ski home. No crowds, no lift lines, no hassles.

When the snow melts, the surroundings become a playground to hike, bike, and fish. Tennis lovers can enjoy the homeowner tennis and pickleball court, golf lovers can enjoy the multitude of golf courses within a ten mile radius, beaches and picnic areas are within biking distance to the house. There are a ton of hiking trails just out the back door, and a great fishing creek just down the street from the home. The activities in the Tahoe Basin are endless. Located on the West shore of Tahoe City, you are minutes to the Lake and restaurants, and close to Chambers Landing and Meeks Bay with great sandy beaches, BBQ grills, incredible views, and a day full of bliss.

The house is chalet-style and has an open floor plan that can accommodate your family and friends well. The 22 foot cathedral ceilings, and floor to ceiling windows, with expansive wrap around deck offer a great house to enjoy the spectacular views from. With 2 sliding glass doors, the sunny deck becomes an extension of the great room with lots of patio furniture, BBQ, and privacy. There is a large 2 car garage with extra parking, and 40 foot enclosed walkway for 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, sliding glass door that exits out to a deck. Here you can enjoy a hot tub with the views of Twin Peaks. In the wintertime, you can watch skiers short cut home from Alpine Meadows through the front yard, and in the summertime you can watch squirrels climb the trees. Down the hall is laundry home, full bath, sauna area and another bedroom with queen bed,TV and twin. The sauna is the size of one you'd have a gym: 2 levels with enough room to spread out in. Next to the sauna is a changing area and with a 'Finnish' touch. Cool off in the shower room with four shower heads and glass atrium that looks out into the forest. It's a great way to end a non stop day. The changing area is also connected to a full bathroom. There are bathrobes some in bedrooms and changing area 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 . Bring your binoculars to view the occasional extreme skiers who will snow mobile up the mountain range and ski down, and the incredible sights of wildlife year around. Two sliding glass doors exit out to a sunny wrap around deck with a barbecue, and patio furniture which is used in summer and winter. 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. The dining area is 1/2 nook with pillows, bench and chairs. You can eat here, or relax here. It all faces an entertainment center with TV. DVD, stereo, and some games. From all areas in the main area, you can watch TV, enjoy the fireplace and views, or socialize with the rest of your group.

Off the living area is another full bath attached to a bedroom with queen bed and TV. Next to that room is the Master Bedroom. There is a King-size sleigh bed with TV, half bath off a changing area, and walk in closet. Indirect lighting and views of the forest make this room a bonus. Up the stairs from the living area, is a loft with pool table, TV, and two twin beds. The loft is private from downstairs and you can play pool during the day, and use the room for sleeping at night. Kids love it here.

Because Lake Tahoe's motto is just 'play hard' extra attention has been given to a great bed and a good nights sleep. All the bedding is Hotel Style with memory foam mattress pad, luxury 300 count sheets, 4 down or down alternative pillows, duvet, and bed throw. You'll feel like you're in an upscale hotel.

There is wireless internet, 7 TV's on DISH 3 DVD players, 2 iPods docks, and 2 stereo's, washer and dryer, as well as upgraded towels, and extra niceties to make your stay enjoyable. When you arrive at the house, all beds are made, towels hung, and coffee service is provided for your first morning. The furnishings are user friendly with plenty of seating for your family and friends. High ceilings with large wooden beams, triangle shaped windows, and mountain decor compliment the 'Tahoe' feeling. The location and amenities of this home makes this a great vacation home year-round.

Why Lake Tahoe chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

The house is centrally located on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe, close to all.Lake Tahoe is unparalleled to any other destination I've been to in the world. The skiing in the wintertime is suburb, the beaches at the Lake in the summertime is liked being in Hawaii. White sand and crystal blue water. The weather is perfect and conducive to doing anything you want outdoors, year-around..

What makes this house unique

The location and privacy. Homeowners and their guests have access to a private parking lot right across the street from the Sherwood lift at Alpine Meadows. You can walk there from the house, or park there and hop on the lift! There is also a warming hut by the lift that serves BBQ, hot chocolate, beer, etc and lots of chairs.

I like both seasons. The skiing speaks for itself, but in the summertime there are tons on trails to explore around the house. Page Meadows is a popular trail system located a block away. The house is just up from the Lake at Sunnyside Resort which has a great restaurant with huge deck on piers right on the lake. You can spend all day here watching the wooden boats come in for a beverage or dining. You can access the bike path here and ride to River Ranch which is a beautiful ride along the Truckee River. Once you get to River Ranch, you can enjoy another great deck for dining while watching the river rafters come in. Rafting is a fun thing to do also.

Tahoe City has lots of restaurants and shops to enjoy. There is always something going on there to add to a weekend.

Even though there are tons of things to visit in Lake Tahoe, I totally enjoyed just hanging out in the house and on the deck. You really feel away from it all, but are close to everything. Plus...the views from this house are incredible.

Guestbook comments from the owner

WONDERFUL

Jan 6, 2017



We have no negative comments - the home itself was well kept, and very inviting. It was more than adequate for our 3 generation family. The location was convenient to town , yet the spacious lots gave a sense of privacy. Couldn't be better for skiing Alpine Meadows. We used the homeowners parking lot and everyone was able to ski home at their leisure. So convenient and was able to really get a fully day of skiing in without traffic or shuttles. Hope its available for our next visit there as we will definitely try to rent it again for our family.

Located in one of the most desired neighborhoods on the North Shore, you are walking distance to the back side 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, and get on! Alpine Meadows allows the homeowners living in this neighborhood and/or guests to start here without at ticket and 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 are here for your use.

Ward Valley is known for its peaceful setting of houses divided by forest land and views that are breathless. Just up from the Lake at Sunnyside Resort, you have total peace at the house, and 3 miles away you're at the Lake with shops, restaurants, nightlife, and an array of activities. Tahoe City is the city to be in on the North Shore. With Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley, and Homewood at your doorstep, you won't be able to ski a run twice. The winter months is a haven for skiing, snow boarding snow snowmobiling. cross county skiing, and with its backdrop the Lake.. you can't beat the experience.

Summer is as good as the winter. 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. Its mild enough for the whole family. At River Ranch there is a large outdoor deck with BBQ, outdoor bars, and a great spot to watch the rafters come it. Raft 1 day, bike another. You can access the bike path from the house that will meander along the Truckee River to Truckee. River Ranch is a 1/3 way point.

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. Pristine, crystal clear blue water, white sand beach, smell of tall pines, views of mountains. Its a wonderful setting for a picnic. Chambers Landing is known for the long pier/dock with bar and restaurant at the end of it. This is where all the great wooden boats eventually stop at for a refreshment. The beach is beautiful here, and the entertainment remember able. Can't beat the lakefront restaurants. West Shore Cafe has dining on their pier, with large deck, outdoor bars, and incredible food. 3 miles from the house is Sunnyside Resort with outdoor deck, boat rentals, pier and definitely an afternoon libation. You'll find a multitude of lake front venues in downtown Tahoe City.

Lake Tahoe is truly a special place, and this is a special house to enjoy it in.

Beautiful view and great location

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I all thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Tahoe City at Sandy's house. The view was incredible and the drive from downtown took at most 10 minutes, so pretty close! We shared several lovely meals together in the open kitchen and dining areas, enjoyed the large deck, absolutely loved the hot tub, and even saw a dear walking around in the backyard! There was one snafu with one of the bathtubs not draining properly but Sandy was super responsive and sent a plumber out to fix it asap. By the time we came home from hiking it was all fixed up! The house has mountain decor, which gives it lots of character and makes it feel very homey. I recommend this property if you're looking for a relaxing and comfortable home.

Beautiful home with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous home with great deck, fabulous location, all the bells & whistles.

Just be aware that the loft bedroom where the pool table is does not have a door and is open to the family room. Our little ones slept well regardless, but light sleepers should be aware of this.

Overall great vacation and would love to come back.

Thank you, Sandy!!!

Amazing location, beautiful house, great amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay this past weekend! The house had the best location, we enjoyed amazing spring skiing during the day and an easy drive down to the lake too! The house was big and comfortable for everyone and with great amenities too. Sandy was very accommodating and easy to communicate with. We hope to come back again whether it's winter or summer!

Top experience. Recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much Sandy for hosting us at your beautiful house is Lake Tahoe. We were 4 couples staying at the house and had a great stay! Bedrooms were comfortable for us. Kitchen and the living room was the best part, super clean and we enjoyed everyday the open fire and playing plenty of games at the dining table The house is located in Tahoe City, a 10 min walk to the ski lift, so close to all.

We had everything we needed and left with many memories.

Wonderful rental

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful, clean and well maintained. Booking was easy. Owner supplied good instructions on entry, amenities, etc. The property is within easy walking distance to the ski lift. Kitchen has all the housewares necessary for cooking/having dinner in. Sunnyside restaurant was a short drive and had excellent food. Our family of 12 fit well. Six bedrooms, each with comfortable beds and TV's. We visited in early February for a wedding held on the mountain at Alpine Meadows. View was spectacular. Overall - good quality. I recommend this property to anyone wanting a mountain vacation.

Owner's Response: I’m glad you had a good experience with booking and instructions and that you enjoyed staying there. I have a crew that check the house prior to a Tenants arrival and a great cleaning service. Location is prime… walk to ski lifts, yet 3 miles from the Lake.

Amazing Chalet w/Unbeatable Views!

  • 5 of 5

This property was truly an amazing place to stay! We spent the weekend at this home to celebrate an early Thanksgiving with family, and couldn't have been happier. The home sits just a few miles from downtown Tahoe City, and is set up on a hill that gives you privacy, parking, and one-of-a kind views .From the back deck and hot-tub you can see a Twin Peaks mountain range- truly unbeatable. The house is also set up well inside and was perfect for our group. Each bedroom gives you privacy, and the living area and kitchen are nice and open which was perfect for cooking and playing games together. The kitchen is stocked with all the essentials you would need to make a meal (pots, pans, utensils, spices, coffee maker, blender, etc). The grocery store in town is also only a few minutes away if you need to stock up on any essentials. You can tell the owners care about their guests and want to make each stay perfect. There was a bottle of wine and chocolates left for us upon arrival, as well as detailed instructions on how to operate or where to find almost anything you could think of. The check-in process and rental process were seamless and the property was definitely as advertised. Little touches like that set this property above the rest, and we definitely hope to return to the chalet in the future!
