About the property

Beautifully Unique Property That Creates Dream Vacations And Memories

This beautiful, well-appointed mountain retreat sits on the bank of the American River with its back doors just feet away from the water’s edge. This home sits on a secluded, wooded ¾ acre lot with 75 feet of private riverfront providing an unmatched tranquil setting for a Tahoe getaway. Summertime swimming and fishing just out the back door in the trout-filled American River, winter snow skiing is minutes away, and the historic town of Strawberry brings charm and outdoor activities to fill the days.

The property sits on Strawberry Lane just behind the historic Strawberry Lodge off Highway 50. An easy walk to Strawberry Lodge provides dining and exploration of an historic 1858 hotel that was once a Pony Express stop. The home is also within walking distance to the historic Pony Express Trail and Lover's Leap, a hot spot for rock climbers and hikers of all experience levels. Nearby Echo Lake is a wonderful spot for boating, kayaking, fishing and hiking. Sierra Ski Resort is only 5 miles up the road from the house. Additional nearby ski resorts include Kirkwood and Sierra at Tahoe, along with Hope Valley for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and more. Snowmobiling and off-roading parks are also nearby.

The main house is decorated top to bottom with custom furnishings, framed with dramatic cathedral ceilings and loaded with additional appointments all creating a cozy and warm mountain feel. The home's front door leads into the main living area providing an instant Tahoe allure as the beautiful interior decor mirrors the stunning outside landscape. The custom chef's kitchen boasts a large cook top island, quality appliances and ample counter space for preparing meals. An open design unifies the kitchen with the dining and living areas. There are comfortable couches, a large HDTV suspended from the ceiling for optimal viewing, grand natural-stone hearth with a wood burning fire place and three large sliding glass doors leading out to a wrap-around porch with patio seating and a gas BBQ.

The master bedroom, located just off the main living area, hosts a comfortable queen bed, plenty of storage, a full bath and easy access to the back deck through a sliding glass door. The home's laundry room is also on the main floor with full size washer/dryer and additional storage. Large windows throughout the home provide a perfectly framed view of the surrounding woods and river.

Head down to the home's lower level and find a large, cozy bedroom just steps away from the American River through a beautiful sliding glass door. A timeless large brick hearth houses another wood-burning fireplace in this bedroom. A second set of large windows provide beautiful views of a lower deck and sitting area framed by beautiful trees.

Upstairs from the main living area is a third floor loft, a third bedroom and another full bathroom. The loft is a well-appointed relaxation and social area with two convertible couches for extra sleeping spaces. A dartboard along with a table and chairs provide indoor space to gather or seek quiet time. The third floor bedroom has a comfortable queen bed along with a bunk comprised of a full size bed on the bottom and twin bed on the top. The home's beautiful vaulted and exposed beam ceilings continue throughout the third floor.

This property also boasts a detached one-bedroom apartment. The apartment has easy access from a set of stairs near the driveway and from an elevated walkway off the third floor loft. The apartment/s bedroom has a beautiful and comfortable queen size bed. The living area has a convertible couch, wood burning stove and TV. There is a full size kitchen and bath making this a great get-away for your additional quests.

If you are looking for memories that will last a lifetime, this rental property will exceed every expectation.

Just as you enter town on Hwy 50, the Strawberry Lodge is on the Right and a small Market is on the Left. The locals that own the market are great and you will find them enjoying time with others in the evenings. There are very limited supplies in the area so be sure you pack everything you will need before heading up the mountain. The house come with enough basics to get renters started. If you have a big group or are staying more then a couple days, be sure to bring some basics with you including trash bags.
