2017 CALENDAR AVAILABILITY:

Please note that demand is currently very high. Rates and availability are guaranteed only on a "first come, first serve" basis upon payment. Unlike similar properties in the area, the homeowner does not reside onsite during your stay and no pets live on property nor are permitted at any time by guests. This policy helps ensure the privacy and comfort of all guests without concern that anyone may be "looking over your shoulder" during your stay. Enjoy your time away with the peace of mind and privacy of a beautiful custom home in a very private, comfortable, and breathtaking mountain setting. Utilizing the additional 2 queen-size inflatable mattresses, this home can sleep up to 12 adults and children comfortably. See the complete listing below for additional details and don't forget to read the more than 50 "5-star" independent reviews from prior guests. Thank you so much for viewing my listing and considering a stay at my home. I absolutely guarantee that you and your guests will not be disappointed, and I look forward to your stay.

'Absolutely breathtaking' best describes what you and your guests will likely feel during the short drive to this beautiful mountain home just 20 minutes from the Reno-Tahoe International Airport. Located just 15 miles and halfway between downtown Reno and North Lake Tahoe at nearly 4,500 feet in elevation within the peaceful and secluded tree line of Mount Rose, the convenient location just off Mt. Rose Highway (Route 431) offers the absolute best in everything the area has to offer from one central and convenience location.

The home's half-acre plus lot is situated high among a beautiful national forest within the desirable Galena Forest Estates neighborhood, directly next to two of southwest Reno's most sought after neighborhoods, St. James Village and Montreux. The back of the property offers a large private deck with a hot tub and freestanding dry sauna and directly borders the Toiyabe National Forest. The natural setting creates an extremely tranquil and peaceful mountain ambiance from deep within the Sierra Nevadas. The natural high-desert landscape features numerous large pines, blue spruces, and other native desert and mountain vegetation as well as a small man-made pond in the front yard among the lush green lawn.

This ranch style home offers approximately 2,009 square feet of updated and modern indoor living space with 4 distinct bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in a nicely laid out floor plan. The master bedroom is located at the back (right) corner of the house with direct access to the back deck through a large sliding glass door. A bedroom at the front (right) corner of the house includes its own private balcony with a comfortable queen bed. The interior (right) bedroom in the main hallway includes a set of twin beds and is perfect for children or single adults. The fourth bedroom is semi-private and includes another beautiful queen bed situated just off the den on the opposite back (left) corner of the home. This room has its own sliding glass doors as well offering direct and convenient access to the back deck. This bedroom as well as the den can offer privacy from the remainder of the house via a heavy sliding pocket door conveniently situated between the kitchen and the den making it perfect for a small family or couple wishing to share the home with others while still maintaining some level of privacy within the common space. The cozy, semi-private den is just in front of this bedroom on the left front of the house and includes a large sectional couch with a natural wood-burning pellet stove for use during the cooler months as you watch movies on the 50' flat panel television with cable and DVR service.

The fairly open concept main living area consists of the kitchen, dining area, and main living room and is perfectly situated directly in the center of the home with direct access to the back deck. Most of this area is open and features beautiful vaulted ceilings with plenty of natural sunlight entering from the many windows and skylights. A small bar with bar stool seating for three generally separates the kitchen from the dining area while still offering plenty of space and openness within the area. The well-appointed kitchen features granite countertops and stainless steel appliances perfect for the chef in the group. High-end stainless steel cookware by Wolfgang Puck include all of the pots and pans you could ever need to prepare any gourmet meal, even including a wok! Enjoy many of the other small kitchen appliances such as a toaster, coffee/tea maker, fondue set, blender, and hand mixer. Dinnerware and glassware is abundant as well so you can enjoy your glass of champagne from a champagne glass, red wine from a red wine glass, or your margarita from a margarita glass. During warmer months, enjoy dinner outside on the peaceful back deck during a relaxing summer evening barbeque using the high-end Weber gas grill.

The dining room has a large square table with seating up to 8, plus an additional 4 at the bar directly behind. Enjoy meals and conversations together as a family or large group, and play any number of games or enjoy a bottle of wine from this convenient setting.

Step down into the living room where the gas fireplace sits within a beautiful river rock setting to create a natural feeling of warmth and coziness. The large 7-piece modular sofa can comfortably accommodate as many of 6-8 people while watching the 50" high definition flat panel TV or DVD, or while the "kids" play games around the large 4'x4' marble coffee table.

Each bedroom includes clean, brand-name mattresses (including mattress protectors and mattress liners) purchased from a high-end retailer and exceptionally comfortable and well maintained. Bed linens are of high quality, name brand and 100% cotton. Each bed has its own down (or down alternative) comforter, 100% cotton duvet, comfortable pillows (with pillow protectors), and an optional, extra bed blanket for every bed for the colder nights. A Pack-N-Play for infants is also available for use during your stay, if needed.

The linen closet contains numerous sets of high quality 100% cotton designer towel sets (bath, hand, and wash). Two portable, queen-size inflatable Aero mattresses (along with linens and pillows) are also provided for guest use.

Each full bathroom has its own toilet and shower/tub. The 'en suite' master bathroom boasts a double vanity with its own skylight and large soaker tub while the guest bathroom is conveniently situated between the master bedroom and front (right) bedroom near the interior (right) bedroom as well.

The home was recently renovated with the installation of all new 3" recessed lighting throughout, a new designer dining room light fixture, sleek modern ceiling fans in each of bedroom, high-quality interior doors (including beautiful polished chrome hardware), and fresh paint throughout. Create any mood in the house using the electronic, dimmable control panels for all of the lighting throughout the home.

The home is heated using a newer, high-efficiency furnace (propane) supplemented by the wood-burning pellet stove located in the den, as appropriate. An abundance of wood pellets are provided for guests to use during their stay and are easily loaded into the stove to instantly create a natural fireplace setting. The automatic blower provides a comforting blanket of warmth and coziness on those cold nights in the mountains.

This home and the surrounding area is a truly unique paradise enjoyed by outdoor enthusiasts, nature lovers, adventurers, and families of all types. Year-round activities include world-famous snow skiing and snowboarding, hiking and backpacking, camping, mountain biking, and rafting and kayaking. The high desert region offers four distinct seasons. The summer season is best to enjoy the many breathtaking beaches around Lake Tahoe where temperatures typically reach high into the 80s with lows into the 50s with constant mountain breezes and no humidity (or bugs!). The winter season offers world-class skiing and snowboarding at more than a dozen resorts as well as snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, and snow-shoeing just minutes from the home. Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe is the area's favorite locals ski resort and easily accessible via a quick 10-15 minute drive up Mt. Rose Highway.

After a long day, come home and relax with a cold beer or nice glass of wine while soaking in the outdoor hot tub or unwind in the dry sauna as the snow falls peacefully around you. Even though the outside temperatures can reach well into the 80s during the summer afternoons, the hot tub and sauna can still be enjoyed year round when temperatures typically drop into the 50s at night due to the high mountain elevation. Enjoy a relaxing and peaceful afternoon or evening on the private deck under the umbrella or napping in the sun on one of the lounge chairs while taking in the natural beauty of the mountain surroundings both memorable and extremely enjoyable.

Thank you for taking the time to consider my home for your upcoming holiday. I take great pride in my home and offering all of my guests the very best in quality, comfort, and convenience in a well-maintained, clean and modern home. Please read the over 55+ '5-star' reviews from prior guests as a demonstration of my commitment to customer service and what you may expect during a stay at my home. Safe travel and please don't hesitate to email or call me via the links on this site if I can be of service.
