Overview

About the property

Luxury 3bd/3ba+loft on the slope at Kirkwood Mountain Resort

This Swedish themed ski-in/out 3 bedroom + loft/3 bath Mountain Townhome features a large open concept Great Room with 24' vaulted ceilings opening to a large well appointed gourmet kitchen. It's the perfect place to gather and unwind after a day of skiing on Kirkwood's beautiful slopes! The layout is very social and ideal for 2 families or 3 couples. Just forget the cars in the heated garage as everything is just a short walk!

Kirkwood Ski Resort is the Tahoe destination for those who want the best and the most snow... in fact, it is ranked #3 globally with respect to total annual snowfall ( 700"/year) and was recently acquired by Vail Resorts. The most snowfall in the Tahoe region combined with 7,800' base elevation means Kirkwood always has the deepest base and usually very good cover until the end of April. The snow is also lighter at Kirkwood then at it's North Lake cousins- partially due to higher elevation but also a little less wind packing it down during big storms.

The town home itself is warm and welcoming - perfect for the adult get away - or some quality time with family.

Enjoy your apres ski hot chocolate in the great room, with stone gas fireplace and 24' ceilings. There is a sectional couch big enough for 8 adults to comfortably enjoy the fireplace or watch a movie on the 60" LED TV. You will also find the large dining area and the well-appointed, open layout, gourmet kitchen makes the house very social and inviting. Seated at the kitchen bar is the favorite place to rehash the days skiing over some Charcuterie and a glass of wine.

There are two bedrooms on the main floor, each with a Queen sized bed and an en suite bathroom. Upstairs you will find the master bedroom suite with a king bed and a luxurious master bath with a jetted tub for two and a separate large travertine shower. There is a second full entertainment system with a 46' Samsung TV in the master bedroom.

The master suite is adjacent to the loft: which has another living area with a double sofa bed, a daybed that unfolds to accommodate two twin mattresses adjacent to each other (size of a King bed), and a home office (with printer, LCD monitor, keyboard and mouse) - perfect for those who need to get work done while up in the mountains ! There is also a 40" LG LED TV in the loft for the kids to watch Netflix on.

This home sleeps up to 12 and is ideal for two large families or three smaller families or three couples. Additionally, there is heated garage with parking for 2 cars and ski racks, laundry inside the unit and a mud room for ski jacket and boot storage at the end of your day on the slopes.

There are several nearby options for food and drinks. Closest is the Cornice Grill right across from Chair 6 which is open every day summer 2017. The Wall Restaurant is in the Mountain Village near chair #5. This is the most high end dining experience at Kirkwood serving California cuisine with a decent wine selection. Newest, and Vail's first initiative, is the K-Bar. The K-Bar is a warm wooden apres-ski spot with floor to ceiling glass walls standing in the very center of the Mountain Village. A mile away where Highway 88 meets Kirkwood Meadows Dr is my personal favorite, the Kirkwood Inn. This is a historic log cabin that serves up some good steaks, ribs, and salads at reasonable prices. But get there early for dinner as it's very popular with families ! Finally, past the Mountain Village over by the General Store there is 7800- the only bar in Kirkwood open late night. 7800 is known for its reasonable prices, decent food, Friday night Karaoke (9PM start), and live bands on Saturday nights.

Those who are not wanting to be on the slopes there are a variety of other activities at Kirkwood or nearby- including tobogganing, dog sledding, zip lining, cross country skiing and snow shoeing in the tranquil meadows and foothills. There is also nearby access to the back country.

Summer at Kirkwood is highly underrated- most days consist of deep blue cloudless skies, temps in the low 70s range with a light cooling breeze in the afternoon. Activities include lift serviced downhill mountain biking, zip lines, disc golf course, rock climbing, hiking (make sure to check out the wildflowers), trout fishing and boating on nearby Caples Lake and Silver Lake. Just past the General Store on the left there is tennis and basketball courts and a playground.

My personal favorite summer activity is s short hike to the Potholes- these stunning natural swimming holes are formed by the water from Silver Lake cascading down rock slabs forming pools and small waterfalls. They are perfect for a picnic with the family. It's 5 miles away on and only a short hike in from Hwy 88. While there are many other longer and more challenging hikes and climbs closer to Kirkwood I don't think any can compare to the natural rugged beauty and uniqueness of the Potholes.
