About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

This North Tahoe vacation condo is practically ski in/ ski out at Alpine Meadows, known as the 'locals' ski resort with its secret powder stashes and laid back attitude. In 2011 Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley merged creating unequalled skiing opportunities. A shuttle operates between the mountains and a single lift ticket is good for both. A short drive brings you to Olympic Valley and the world famous slopes of Squaw Valley USA. Tahoe City and and Lake Tahoe with dining, shopping are 6 miles south.

Enjoy our mountain condo nestled at the base of Alpine Meadows. Advanced skiers can ski from the Scott chair off the slopes to the condo. A shuttle is available on Holidays and some weekends to the bottom of the lifts a 1/4 mile away. A guest said it best 'This had to be one of the closest, most hassle free ways to ski alpine.' Squaw Valley, its slopes, restaurants, and shopping is six miles away. The family and beginner friendly ski resorts Homewood and Tahoe Donner are each within 20 miles; Northstar is also a short distance.

You can sit next to a warm fire as the powder piles up, knowing you can be the first on the hill. In the summer there is great mountain biking out your door. The beautiful Truckee river is at the bottom of the hill. Hike out the door into the Granite Chief wilderness of the Sierra Nevadas, then enjoy the evening on the deck with fantastic views.

The open ceilings and large windows on this end unit give you the feeling of being in a treehouse, with views out every window. The main living quarters and kitchen are on the second floor, maximizing the views. There is a woodstove in addition to wall heaters. There is a master bedroom upstairs with a king bed. Downstairs is a bedroom with queen bed and a bunkroom with five bunks which is perfect for kids. This is a remarkably quiet mountain perch, even during Tahoe's busiest holiday weekends.

About Carl Jones and Sarah Robertson

We are avid skiers, cyclists, runners and hikers.

Carl Jones and Sarah Robertson purchased this townhome in 2010

Why Carl Jones and Sarah Robertson chose Alpine Meadows

I purchased this property to be both a great family location and place with good design and style. As a kid I was spoiled walking out my door to the slopes, so when I saw this condo I knew that was where I wanted to be. I love the small family feel of Alpine Meadows, combined with absolutely world class skiing. We love the layout of the condo and the beautiful views, we love the quiet of being up in the mountains.

What makes this townhome unique

Besides the easy access to skiing, fantastic trails lead out from the parking areas for many miles of great hiking and mountain biking. The kids will love the great sledding hills around.

Fantastic condo; fantastic time at Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

I booked this condo for a week vacation with some extended family. We were five, with some visitors from out of state. The condo was the perfect place for us to stay, terrific location and it had everything we needed for cooking and barbequeing and relaxing over breakfast and after a fun day hiking and touring the area. It's a very cute place and really cozy and comfortable. The owners were easy to deal with, helpful and friendly. This was a great experience overall and we'll definitely be back!

Great place, great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a really nice place to stay in Tahoe. The location is close to both Tahoe City and Truckee. The condo has an updated kitchen and a cute patio. I also liked the decor of the living room.

Quiet summer retreat

Great location at the end of The Valley. Very quiet; we were here in summer. Nice views from main room and balcony. Nicely decorated. Not super fancy but everything you need.

Great location and value

  • 4 of 5

My friends and I stayed here for a summer climbing trip. We all thought that the condo was incredibly comfortable, especially the temperature when we had the windows and doors open letting the breeze in. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, cutlery, spices.

The garbage disposal, however, didn't drain and we had some trouble connecting to the WiFi. Our device would connect, but we had to wait about 10 minutes before actually getting internet or sometimes we couldn't connect at all.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. We replaced the WIFI router with the best we could find, this seems to have helped a lot, though we are still at the top of a mountain road and the only internet provider (ATT) is a bit less stable than our internet in the city. There is an onsite manager for problems that arise during the visit, garbage disposal has been addressed.

Cozy condo with plenty of room.

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent property in a beautiful location (doesn't hurt being surrounded in mountains of snow). End unit with lots of natural sunlight and beautiful scenery. Not our first time here and plan on staying again.
