About the property

3 Bedrooms /2.5 Bath home. Sleeps 7-10 comfortably. Great year round location

COME ENJOY OUR QUIET NEIGHBORHOOD IN THE WOODS!! Our comfortable home is in a lovely, forested neighborhood about 2 miles from the Lake and in the town of Kings Beach/Tahoe Vista. Our street offers incredible snowshoeing & snowmobiling trails all right outside your door. The neighborhood is so peaceful, you could just sit out on our large deck and listen to the wind blow through the tall pine trees and watch the chipmunks chase each other!

Our two-story mountain home is exceptionally well maintained . The 2 story layout of the house offers plenty of room to entertain big families, but comfy and cozy enough for just 2.

With a large open floor plan, large loft, Pool Table, big hot tub, gas fireplace, four TVs, Dish Network with DVR, WIFI, Roku, DVD players even a VHS player! A thoroughly stocked kitchen also awaits you.

As you walk in the front door, you enter the Great Room and are greeted by high ceilings that open to the loft. You will see a large warm gas stone-faced fireplace. There are 2 sets of sliding glass doors that open to the deck with BBQ, Patio seating and the over-sized hot tub.

On the main floor, off the living room is one of the renovated full bathrooms. Continue on down the hall to the washer and dryer and then to ALL 3 bedrooms.

The master “Lake” room has a beautiful four-poster pine queen bed with a comfy pillow-top mattress, a flat screen TV, a private bath and lovely tree-covered mountain views.

Next to this is the guest “Woods” room. This has a comfy queen sized bed with a 3' memory foam mattress topper and equally beautiful views!

The next room is the “Bunk room” with new bunk beds, twin over full, with storage drawers underneath. (sleeps 3) Great for the kids and adults!

For the social cook, you will love the modern that kitchen opens to the living and dining areas, as well as the fireplace and the 55' plasma TV!

The dining area has a large table that can seat 10 and sliding glass doors leading out to the deck and yard. The yard is NOT FENCED.

We have tried our best to stock the newly updated kitchen with everything you might need for a vacation stay, such as chefs knives, coffee maker, crock pot, blender, mixer, pots and pans, plate service for 16, serving trays and so much more. Enjoy the granite counter tops and new stainless steel appliances, including a gas cook top/oven. There are 2 breakfast counters and bar stools to sit and enjoy.

Upstairs is a loft with futons for extra sleeping for 2. There is a half bath and a separate room with NEW POOL TABLE and another flat screen TV. Game closet with TONS of games and puzzles for the whole family. There is also a cozy area of the loft just for watching movies and bookshelves full of reading for the whole family!

Northstar Ski Resort is only 12 minutes away and it is a lovely village with a year round Ice Rink and lots to do, eat and drink.

The lake is only a 5 minute drive away! Sledding and skiing options are anywhere from 12 to 45 minutes away. In the summer there is golf, paddle-boarding, para-sailing, Jet skiing, relaxing!!! Oh did I mention....Casinos are also a short 12 minute drive!

We know you will have an amazing stay in our home. We always do.

About Kimberly Schott

We are the proud parents of a beautiful 11 year old daughter, a pug, a red Labrador Retriever and a few other assorted pets. We honeymooned 15 years ago in Kings Beach and dreamed from that moment of buying our own home. We were able to fulfill that dream the summer of 2012! We live full time in Sonoma County, but come and stay at the house as frequently as we can, so you can be assured of a WELL maintained, well loved home!! We hope you enjoy our mountain home as much as we do!

Kimberly Schott purchased this house in 2012

Why Kimberly Schott chose Tahoe Vista

Location, Location, Location. NO crazy loud beach goers on our street. Our house is in a quiet neighborhood of mostly private homes, 2 miles up from the lake at Kings Beach (off hwy 267). A beautiful forested area that is great for walking or bike riding anytime of the year. There are great maintained trails from here. Our level driveway makes it EASY parking in the winter!

We spend a lot of time here ourselves, so we continually update and try our best to make our home warm, comfortable and super family friendly!!

All the homes in our neighborhood are nestled amongst tall pine trees and the road dead ends at some fantastic hiking trails. No traffic to fight with (except for the squirrels and chipmunks!)

In the winter you can cross country ski or snowmobile right from the front deck along the miles and miles of beautiful trails.

You will find plenty of things to keep you busy here... You can shoot a game of pool upstairs, have a soak in the hot tub, watch TV or relax by the fire with a book or board game. There are also separate comfy spaces in the loft for watching movies and another space for the kiddies playing some games or puzzles.

The lake at Kings Beach is only 5 minutes away by car and It's a great bike ride, but remember... it is UP HILL going home.

What makes this house unique

We truly LOVE our home. We come up and stay often ourselves, so we do our absolute best to keep it up to date and fun for everyone! We are constantly looking for ways to improve! This is not a long distance rental for us!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a lovely home. We so enjoyed the hot tub, pool table and close proximity to the shore. We experienced lots of weather during our stay, from thunderstorms (good time to cozy by fire), to sunny days spent on the lake. Our daughters loved the toys and books upstairs. Thank you for the opportunity!!

Comfortable house, good location

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a really lovely time up in Tahoe. This house has plenty of space to spread out and relax, and for the kids to play, both indoors and out. The fire was warm and cozy to curl up near and watch the snow fall. The house is very well-equipped, we would definitely come back again! Very conveniently located.

Can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

Kim was so in depth with all of the necessary information about check-in, inventory at the house, and check-out. It made everything so easy for us!

We visited for Super Bowl weekend with my Father-in-law, his dog, my brother-in-law, his wife & daughter, my other brother-in-law, my husband and our daughter. The house was perfect! We didn't feel cramped at all, and it was so nice to have the dog there with us. The kids had such a great time sledding down the little hill in their yard, and driving to Grandlibakken, which was only about 20-25 min away. There was truly something for everyone to do during our stay. One of my favorite things was we all fit at the dining room table! Family time and conversations mean so much to us all, and this was the perfect place to find both.

Thank you so much! We definitely want to come back soon!

Clean and cozy pet friendly home.

  • 5 of 5

Clean and cozy pet friendly home in a great neighborhood for skiing and those who enjoy the outdoors. The skiers were close to Northstar and the non skiers and dogs hiked in the Tahoe National Forest. In past years we snow shoed there but no snow this year. House was clean and cozy. The wine and water was a nice touch. The house was pretty well stocked too. Owners were very easy to work with.

Cozy and accommodating

  • 5 of 5

Our group of two families with older kids/young teens thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The kitchen was well equipped and we loved the many games upstairs as well as the pool table and hot tub and loft area for the kids. It's a great place for families! Beds were comfortable and cozy and the fireplace was wonderful. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

4 miles from Northstar (GREAT skiing, Ice skating, movie theater and restaurants!!!)

Kingswood neighborhood off of Hwy 267. Considered Kings Beach and Tahoe Vista.

Surrounded by the Tahoe National Forest.

Quiet neighborhood, but close to everything.

GREAT retreat for families or a quiet romantic getaway.

Neighborhood is surrounded by beautiful trees and quiet serenity. Hiking/biking trails just down the street!

Close by is Northstar. Only a quick is 4 miles away. The Village has some great restaurants, shops and outdoor ice skating rink. Bars, outdoor couches with fire-pits surround the rink which makes it fun even when it’s freezing cold. You can even take a gondola ride up to the Ritz!
