Photos and Description of the Tahoma vacation house rental

3 Bedrooms – 2 ½ Bathrooms – Loft – Sleeps 8 – Meeks Bay VRBO #694722

The House - Welcome to our "Meeks Bay Lake House." Two large decks and a complete wall of glass give you panoramic vistas day and night of beautiful Lake Tahoe. Location! Location! Location! Only a five minute walk gets you to the pristine and sandy Meeks Bay beach during the summer and a 10 minute drive to the Homewood Mountain Resort for skiing/snowboarding in the winter. This house is thoughtfully and meticulously stocked with everything you and your family need to experience an effortless and memorable vacation.

From the carport, walk down 10 steps to one of three entrances to this updated split level home. The main level is designed as a "great room" which allows visibility throughout the dining area, kitchen and living areas. The dining area has a rich mahogany table that can seat 8 people comfortably and is at one end of the great room. Located off the dining area is a full bathroom with a large shower. On the other end is the living area complete with gas fireplace, flat screen TV and the wall of glass that allows you to be outside, even if you're in. the expertly equipped and vacation easy kitchen is centrally located adjacent to a game table, which doubles as another eating area. Step outside to one of the two ample decks, where unobstructed and breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe immediately soothe and rejuvenate.

Downstairs are three bedrooms, laundry area and a full bath with double sinks and a tub/shower combination. Each of the bedrooms has a queen size bed, two of which have double French doors that open to the second spacious and private deck. Keep the doors open during the summer to enjoy the gentle breeze off the lake and a view that is "out of this world!"

The great room is connected by a spiral staircase to a half bath and loft, which is used for a playroom, sleeping area and/or office. The loft will sleep two people, one on a day bed and the other on an electronic inflatable airbed.

A very short drive from Highway 89, the A-frame house sits on a sloped 1/3 of an acre which also has a flat area to one side, used as a barbecue patio and play area.

Summer at the “Lake House” - Want to get out of the house and off property? It’s a 5 minute walk to Meeks Bay beach and marina (rental boats, kayaks & paddleboards), a 10 minute ride to Emerald Bay, the Vikingsholm and the trail-head to Eagle Lake, 15 minutes to Kilner Park with tennis courts and climbing structures, 20 minutes to Tahoe City, 30 minutes to Squaw Valley and 40 minutes to Truckee. Bikes are available to rent at Meeks Bay, Homewood, Sunnyside and Tahoe City and there are paved bike trails from Meeks Bay all the way to Squaw Valley. Other exciting adventures include river rafting down the Truckee River and visiting the Tahoe Treetop Adventure Park at Granlibakken for zip-lining. The peace and serenity of our "Meeks Bay Lake House" is matched by the vast array of fun outside activities nearby.

Winter at the “Lake House” - Whether the sun is shining or the snow is falling, Lake Tahoe is beautiful all year round. Come to the “Meeks Bay Lake House” for winter sports, but still enjoy the picturesque views that Lake Tahoe offers. Caltrans and El Dorado County plowed roads and daily clearing of the parking deck make access to the house during winter very easy. The Homewood Mountain Resort, a family friendly ski resort, is a mere 10 minute drive away. Drive 30 minutes and you’re at the base of either Alpine Meadows or Squaw Valley. Want even more variety? Northstar is a 45 minute drive and both Sugarbowl and Diamond Peak are less than an hour away. If you’re a cross country skier, ski trails are located at both Sugar Pine Point State Park (12 minute drive) and Tahoe City. Now that’s a lot of skiing! Sledding is available at Homewood, Granlibakken and Squaw Valley. We are open to a ski lease for the “Meeks Bay Lake House” during the 2015-2016 ski season.
