This is a recently updated 3 level private mountain home with views of beautiful Lake Tahoe, which is only 2.5 miles away. I've added a POOL TABLE and more new comfortable beds, a portable crib and portable high chair, and a third video game console with games (I now have Ps3, Xbox 360, and Nintendo Wii). 2300 square feet of interior space makes it roomy. This is a freestanding private home in a private cul-de-sac on a forested mountain slope. You are surrounded by nature! There are outdoor decks on all 3 floors. Barbecue on the Weber propane grill and you can dine out on the massive middle floor wraparound deck. Enjoy the PRIVATE HOT TUB to the bottom floor deck under the cover of the middle floor deck - the hot tub is awesome when it snows!
Please note that most popular Internet sites such as VRBO, homeaway, airbnb, tripadvisor/flipkey and "property managers" charge additional booking fees or "service" fees if you book through them. By booking directly with owner, you will save 5-10% in-add on fees.
$32,000 IN IMPROVEMENTS JUST COMPLETED MAY 2016:
1) A heated paver driveway. No more snow removal service in Winter. Sensors will turn on the heat and keep the driveway and it's approach dry and clear.
2) A whole house automatic natural gas powered emergency generator. It's massive and powerful enough to run everything in the house plus the hot tub. If there is a power outage, you'll never even notice.
3) A new gas stove to replace the unreliable pellet stove. Flip a switch for an instant cozy fire. This will supplement the boiler system and add ambiance and convenience.
The middle floor - mountain living with nature! The entry is to the middle floor - the main living area plus a kitchen featuring granite counters and all the amenities for preparing gourmet meals. The adjacent great room has a hardwood floor and a dining area that can seat eight (10 is possible but tight), a lovely stone hearth with a pellet wood stove, a living area with a huge sectional couch and matching overstuffed chair and a home theater featuring a 55 inch Visio LCD High Definition TV, Stereo with Denon surround sound speaker system with subwoofer, Playstation 3 gaming system (with 4 Move controllers and lots of games) and blue ray DVD player. There is a half bath on this floor and access to the garage. The interior was recently painted and redocorated with a Tahoe Rustic Lodge theme that is really very charming. There is a massive wraparound deck for dining outdoors in summer, lounging, sunbathing, stargazing, and enjoying the beautiful views. The deck has a picnic table and patio furniture in summer, and a Weber propane grill that can be used year round. There are some filtered views of Lake Tahoe through the trees from the great room and deck.
The bottom floor features two bedrooms, one with a California King bed, 30 inch TV for watching DVD and VHS movies (not cable) and its own private deck with the private hot tub and a tiny peek of Lake Tahoe through the trees, the other 1st floor bedroom was my daughter's room and it a has a new lodgepole Queen bed and new twin over twin bunk bed. There are some kids books and toys too, but this room is also fine for adults of course. There is a full bathroom on this floor and a separate laundry room with washer and dryer, etc.
The bottom floor also has a huge (approximately 20' x 19') extra bedroom/office/home theater with two twin beds (one rolls under the other to make more space) and new Queen size hide a bed couch. This is the 4th bedroom but it has a armoire for your hanging and folding clothes rather than a closet and a dresser. This huge room also has a Pool Table, a large L shaped desk, high speed wired internet access, wireless router for WIFI, lazer printer/copier/scanner, stereo, 50 inch Samsung DLP High Definition TV with DVD/VCR and Cable TV service, Xbox 360, and Nintendo Wii.
The top floor master suite has amazing views of Lake Tahoe! The huge master suite occupies the entire third floor and is very private, with a huge bedroom with queen bed, private deck, step down to a side room which is now equipped with a gym quality treadmill and recumbent lifecycle exercise bike, full bathroom with jetted jacuzzi tub, separate his and hers vanity, and walk in closet. On one of the two dressers I have a Klipsch portable stereo unit for MP3 players such as Ipods and smartphones. The best views of Lake Tahoe can be enjoyed from the entry of this room from the top of the stairs since it sits above most of the treetops.
This was once my home, I still visit often, and I want my guests to feel at home - which means that you will find a lot more than the usual vacation rental basic supplies. Feel free to use whatever condiments, spices, and sundries that are here. Please also be aware that you wil also find a few of my clothes in some of the closets and drawers so I do not have to pack a suitcase when I visit. There are a couple of adult size one piece snow play suits in the Master suite walk in closet that you may use. There is plenty of room for your clothes and personal items, most of it I have set aside for guests.
This is a gorgeous house in an idyllic natural setting at the #1 destination in the USA and you will make wonderful and lasting memories here!
More world class ski resorts are clustered around Lake Tahoe than anywhere in the world. I provide a toboggan and several sleds and saucers for snow play. Great hill nearby.
As my guest, you get access to Incline Village's 2 pristine private beaches, one of which has a lifeguarded heated pool overlooking Lake Tahoe. There is a reason why Lake Tahoe is the most photographed place in the word. Natural beauty surrounds you.
