As you walk in the front door, you are greeted by the open floor plan with high beamed ceilings. The living area has a large leather sectional with 2 recliners. It faces a 50" TV, wood burning fireplace, pool table and overlooks the views. 2 sliding doors exit to decks. The front deck has comfortable seating and looks out to a tree lined mountain. The back deck has the hot tub, BBQ, seating and open meadow with an abundance of wildlife. In the summertime you can set up a volleyball net, in the wintertime the meadow becomes the perfect snow play area. From anywhere in the Great Room you can watch TV, listen to music, enjoy the fireplace, look out to the views, and socialize with your family or friends.

The kitchen is fully stocked with all the items you'll need for a weeks stay. Pots, pans, 2 coffee makers, toaster etc are provided. There is plenty of cupboards and granite counter tops for all the chefs. The dining table is next to the slider that exits to the deck with an oversized hot tub.. You can see endless stars at night, and watch squirrels running in the meadow during the day.

There is a 1/2 bath next to the dining room. Down the hall is a laundry room , two bedrooms and full bathroom. It is a separate area in the house that is private from the living area. Great set up for children who nap or adults that want peace away from their group. One room has a king bed with twin bed and TV. Next to this is a room with queen bed with TV. All the bedding is 'Hotel Style' with 300 count sheets, duvet, bed cover, 4 pillows and extra throw. Both rooms have large windows with views of a tree-covered mountain and spectacular sunrises.

Up the stairs is the Master bedroom with King bed twin bed, TV, and bathroom. Adjacent to the master room is a bedroom with a Queen bed, TV, walk-in closet, and twin bed that is adjacent to another full bathroom. Across the hall is another room with King bed, TV, and twin. All the bedrooms are large enough to accommodate the extra beds without feeling cramped, and have views of the meadow and trees.

Each room is unique and will give the charm and comfort you'd expect from a Lake Tahoe mountain home. The furnishings and style is Pine lodge decor and the open areas and high ceilings allow you to socialize with family or friends, without feeling closed in.

The house is located in a quiet pocket of homes surrounded by tall pine trees and hiking trails with easy access to all the activities Tahoe has to offer. In the wintertime, Northstar, Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley are all within a short drive. There is a shortcut to Alpine and Squaw that will eliminate ski "rush hour" traffic along the Lake. In the summertime, the open terrain becomes some of the best hiking and biking trails on the North Shore. You can access the trails at the home and go for miles. All the roads in the neighborhood dead end at trail heads. North National Park is walking distance to the house and offers Frisbee golf, ball fields, snowmobile rentals and much more. The Lake at Kings Beach is 2.5 miles away and has boat and kayak rentals. Shopping and entertainment are here with casinos 3 miles away that will satisfy your thirst for nightlife. Crystal Bay Club is known for its music venues, and Cal Neva for thier spa services. There is an abundance of restaurants and shops up and down Kings Beach that will cater to your daytime or evening dining fancies.

Many tenants come here with a list of activities, and choose to stay at the house and enjoy the trails and solitude the house offers. Whether you are coming to Tahoe to spectate or participate, this is the perfect place to come home to.

Booking online is convenient but doesn't compare to speaking with the Owner. I welcome phone calls.

About The Owner

Lake Tahoe has been my playground for 20 years. With all the traveling I’ve done, there is nothing compared to the amenities and beauty the Tahoe basin has to offer. I purchased my first home here in 1992 and decided to share it with others when not in use. I now have many 5 and 6 bedrooms homes I offer for your enjoyment. Each have hot tubs, most with pool tables and in locations that allows easy access to the Lake and Ski resorts. They were purchased for vacation rentals and are designed to be user friendly with all the amenities of home. I have a full time staff that includes cleaning, maintenance and will respond within 24 hours for all your needs. Feel free to call me about my other homes, or to just to discuss the perfect ski run on the perfect day.

The Owner purchased this house in 1998

Why The Owner chose Tahoe Vista

I bought this for size and location. All the bedrooms are large, and the neighborhood is quiet surrounded by great hiking trails.

What makes this house unique

When you walk into the home, you'll feel like you're in a mountain lodge. Plaid carpet, stone wall fireplace, comfortable mountain furniture. A nice open living area all connecting to the outdoors where there is a huge meadow. You'll feel away from it all here, but close to downtown Kings Beach, and Northstar Ski Resort. Kings Beach has some GREAT lake front restaurants days to hang out, and evening dinners. The beach's are spectacular here and some secluded. There is always something happening at the State Park.

At times I'll stay here and never go anywhere. There are easy walking trails all around the neighborhood. AND whether you bring your dog or not, there are neighbor's dogs that will walk with you. Its super quiet, both day and night which I love, and sitting in the hot tub and watching the wildlife without moving is good entertainment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We booked this rental on a Tuesday for a long weekend of mountain biking and family fun. The owner responded immediately when I asked if last minute was okay, and sent me the necessary links and info. The house packs a whole lot into a good amount of space! . We found everything we needed for cooking, sleeping and keeping ourselves entertained (there are labels throughout, making it extremely easy to find stuff and remember where to put it back). The house was quiet and private-feeling, with a deck overlooking the meadow, and we really enjoyed that Large HOT TUB!! Highly recommend, and we'll be back next biking season!

Accommodations provided a memorable experience.

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed with this property last year, that we rebooked for this year! The reason we returned is that there is so much to like. It is beautifully furnished, well-equipped, large enough to easily accommodate guests, private, and close to town.

We rented this house for the 75th anniversary of my wife's parents and were joined by our three children, their spouses and two grandchildren. It was perfect for our reunion where sleeping schedules were variable (grandchildren naps).

The house is represented accurately by the pictures. Very well cared for, with lots of extra amenities we used during our stay. Kitchen is fully stocked, and beds very comfortable.

Location superb. 5 minutes to the beach, grocery store, and right at the hiking trails. We're hikers and some wonderful trails were easily accessible from the house. We would recommend this place and these hosts to anyone! Thank you so much Dave and Heather.

Wonderful house with pretty sizeable bedrooms, great amenities (including fireplace, pool table)

  • 5 of 5

We were 4 couples getting together for a long weekend. This was the perfect place for it— the kitchen thoroughly furnished, the fireplace and living room with pool table were great, as were the beds and baths. Was also spacious and clean. Everyone was VERY happy with the place!

We also found the property manager to be very nice to work with.

Highly recommend!

…left the kids and husbands at home.

  • 5 of 5

We were 10 ladies ages 37-45 on a weekend road trip getaway. We were very happy with this cabin from kitchen fully stocked, to bathroom towels, toiletries, everything you could need was provided!. Owner called upon arrival to welcome us which was a nice touch!

Our winter trip has made us realize that we have got to come back and experience this home during the summer. The meadow was incredible, we enjoyed our coffee in the hot tub every morning. Thank you so much from all of us for opening up your home to us. Hope to book with you in the future.

Not what it looks like on the pictures👎👎👎👎👎

  • 1 of 5

Where do I start 😞?☹️😡?🤯?

The cabin was so old, most of the kitchen drivers were coming apart, all the pots were burned and nasty, utelcins were rusted. Bedroom furniture was broken. Lol when we put our clothes in the drowers we couldn’t get it to open the droweres to get our clothes back. Wow 😮? didn’t get a good sleep because you have no insolation between rooms and floors. U can hear a tiniest whisper. The deck was tiny and the hot tub was stinking. Couldn’t turn the fireplace on. Thus cabin has a small table that only fits 8. Thank god we didn’t take other family members. It’s advertixed for 14. Heater is not working well, where u turnt it on u can’t breat from the heat and when u turn it off it’s freezing. Carpets were filthy and the place was dirty. Oven never worked.

Owner's Response: I spent hours with this tenant answering questions,concerns,making changes, explaining VRBO’s payments and policy. She didn’t understand any of it and somehow blamed me for her booking my house on VRBO?? By the time her trip came, I offered to cancel it based on her dissatisfaction with VRBO. So, I’m not surprised to get a malicious review. 1. Dresser drawer was found broken after she departed. 2. There is plenty of insulation in the walls and floors. 20 years and no complaints about sound. 3.Deck has wrap around seating and hot tub was serviced and clean the day of arrival. It had to be dumped and scrubbed after 2 days of their use. 4. Dining table has 8 chairs, 4 additional chairs at bar counter. 5.Fireplace is wood burning. 6.Heater is functioning properly. 6.The carpets were found much dirtier after tenants departed. 8.The oven had a short and was replaced. Please read the other reviews. Owners…beware of this tenant.

Great place for a family or group, owner very unreachable.

  • 3 of 5

First the positive. The property was fabulous. The kids loved it, the beds were comfy and there were thoughtful touches all around. We absolutely loved the place!

The two problems were that the oven did not work, which ruined two meals for our group of 12, and the owner was near impossible to get a hold of. She has no listed email address, she did not respond to the question I sent her through the app and she did not respond to my 6-8 calls/voicemails. Very unprofessional.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and I’m glad you thought the house was fantastic. Its a great spot for kids who love playing in the meadow and adults who love a big house with comfortable beds and good amenities. I work very hard at all the “extras’ and keeping the house nice. I am the Owner and hands on with my tenants. The oven had a short and has since been replaced. VRBO blocks Owner's and/or property managers phone numbers until a reservation is booked. When a reservation is booked, You will have access to my information along with a rental agreement, instructions on the house, and welcome book in the house all with my phone# and email. Because I vacation rent 6 homes in Lake Tahoe, I’m always available either by phone or by my email. I didn’t receive any questions from you through VRBO’S app. All the phone calls I received were prior to your stay regarding an earlier check in which I got back to you when I knew the status. Thank you for taking care of my home and I hope your family can visit again soon.

Home away from Home.

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful week living in this beautiful home. There were no amenities lacking. From the well stocked kitchen to the comfortable large bedrooms (bed's more comfortable than at home!) to the open living and pool table area, the fabulous front and back porches, and GREAT location. Thank you, Sandy, for sharing your home. We hope to return next summer to our "home away from home". Clark and Johnna

This house is in the middle of the Northshore and has easy access to all Lake Tahoe has to offer. 1.5 miles from the highway, getting around the Tahoe Basin is effortless. The drive around the Lake is breathtaking and you'll enjoy the different little towns that surround the Lake. . The house is in a quiet pocket of homes just up from the Lake at Kings Beach .All the homes here sit on a meadow with tall pine trees, and the roads dead end at the hiking trails. Winter and summer they are used and maintained by the forest service. It borders the Tahoe Rim trail which is a destination for some with endless hiking trails you can access from the house. Brockway Summit is well know for its path to Tahoe City, and Watson Lake is worth hiking too. You can walk in the summertime to our neighborhood park, North National Park. The park encompasses approximately 124 acres of predominantly active recreational activities. An 18 par fitness course, ball fields, Frisbee Golf, playground are just a few options. In the wintertime they offer a nice sledding hill for tubing and snow fun. Within 20 min to all the ski resorts on the North Shore, Northstar in the closest and newest village. The village was modeled after Beaver Creek Colorado...cobblestone sidewalks, copper roofs and a multitude of restaurants and shops that line the 'square'. The square is an ice skating rink in the wintertime and roller skating in summer. The bon fire pits and outdoor bars are always there. Its a wonderful setting to hang out at especially at night. Skiing here is family orientated with lots of ski programs for all ages, and a pristine mountain that keeps a good grasp on good snow conditions. If your staying a week, I highly recommend taking advantage of the other resorts also. A bonus is from the house you can drive the back way to Alpine and Squaw Valley which will eliminate the morning traffic through Tahoe City. Both mountains have tons of excellent skiing, and mountain biking in the summertime. MT Rose is where to go for open terrain, Diamond Peak for kids and an easy day skiing. Both are 15 min to the house. In the summertime, Kings Beach just down the street is a State Park with lifeguard and lake toys to rent. The beach is the highlight with wide sandy beaches, and views you have to experience to appreciate. There are also smaller beaches up and down the strip for reading a book, and dog beaches for your loved ones. Brockway golf course in Kings Beach is a must for those that just want a good time. One of the top 9 hole courses in California, its known for its yardage and views. In the wintertime the course becomes a snowmobiling park. Tahoe City is 12 miles away and offers another nice city with shops, restaurants and outdoor venues. The Truckee River is our playground for fishing, river rafting, and bike baths to view all. A nice day is renting your bike in Tahoe City and riding to River Ranch. This is a river front restaurant with large outdoor patio at the entrance to Alpine Meadows. Here is where the river tours end and usually where the rafts have issues. You can spend the day here watching the rafters and enjoying their menu and drink. Between the location , amenities of the house, and your favorite family or friends, you'll have a great home to stay at while getting a true Lake Tahoe experience.
