Imagine immersing yourself in all of the finest that life has to offer and you'll find yourself in our home. . . .

We are within 2 MINUTES TO A BEAUTIFUL GOLDEN SANDY BEACH that's great for the kids!

NORTHSTAR - THE BEST FAMILY SKI RESORT IN TAHOE - IS LESS THAN 9 MILES AWAY! The REGIONAL PARK is just a few minute's walk away, on a trial through the woods. It's great for kids & adults!

SPACIOUSLY BEAUTIFUL! Our *2,850+/- sq. ft. lake-view, 3 bedroom/3 bath and loft home is available FOR THOSE WHO DESIRE ONLY THE BEST FOR THEIR FAMILY AND FRIENDS!

An overview of the home provides 2 master suites (One master has a king bed with a jacuzzi tub having filtered lake views, One master has a queen bed); the 3rd. bedroom has a full size bed, with a claw-foot tub in the bathroom. Each bedroom has its own attached bath. The loft has a reading nook/sleeping area which is very comfortable, extra long & wide. There is another special bed in the loft, as well, which sleeps someone 5'-7' and smaller.

There are 2 touch start beautifully romantic deer-creek green slate fireplaces with full hearths and rock surrounds.

Throughout the home there exists various hand-crafted furniture & a log bed, all designed and built by the owner.

We know your vacation is precious, so we courteously supply the small things - SAVING YOU TIME - so you can enjoy being with your family and friends, instead of running around doing errands!

Log accents abound throughout the home; most logs are harvested directly from the site, complimenting the vertical grain Doug-Fir and Peach travertine floors.

We offer our home to those who can and will appreciate it, while caring for it in the spirit of how we designed and built it. This is a PET-FREE, SMOKE-FREE, DRUG-FREE & SHOE-FREE HOME, (NO EXCEPTIONS).
