Next door, Sunnyside Resort is a favorite year round lakeside dining option.

During the ski season, you are less than fifteen minutes from Homewood Mountain Resort. Or travel just twenty minutes to Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows, two of the premier Tahoe ski areas. A single lift ticket provides access to both resorts, and the Squaw/Alpine Express offers between mountain transportation every 20-30 minutes.

Very comfortable - heating varied greatly between rooms. They don't supply firewood - so bring your own if you want to light a fire.

Reviewer Comments:

The home is adorable! The property is gorgeous! Very centrally located. We have two children - ages 5 and 8 - and there was more than enough room for all of us. Overall, we would definitely stay here again and just loved being there. One suggestion - the coffee pot does not automatically turn off. I might suggest an upgrade b/c if you don't remember to turn it off, it stays on ... all day
