Description from the owner
Just improved! In June 2014 the hide a bed couch was replaced with a new one. The upstairs master suite queen mattress and box springs were replaced with new ones. In October 2013 a pool table was added to the game room and the a new queen bed was added to one of the downstairs bedrooms. The game room lost its wallpaper and gained a nice paint job.

Additional Location Information
#1 most popular destination in the US
Blessed with sparkling natural beauty, has been selected as in the #1 most popular destination in the United States, Lake Tahoe is considered the jewel of the High Sierra. The lake is known for the clarity of its water and the panorama of surrounding mountains on all sides. At 6,229 feet above sea level, Lake Tahoe is the highest lake of its size in the United States, measuring 22 miles long by 12 miles wide, has a surface area of 191 square miles and an average depth of 989 feet and 72 miles of shoreline. Lake Tahoe is the second deepest lake in the United States, with a maximum depth of 1,645 feet, trailing only Oregon's Crater Lake.
Incline Village comes by its name honestly. It is named for the Great Incline Tramway, built by loggers in the late 1870's. Today, Incline is where some of the world’s wealthiest people have built stunning mountain retreats. This eastern North Shore enclave features some of Tahoe’s most peaceful beaches and a refined approach to Lake Tahoe life.
Incline Village has a population of approximately 8,000 an is surrounded by Forest Service land. It is a quiet affluent community with a number of great restaurants, a small movie theater, 2 world class golf courses, a bowling alley, quaint shops, and good hospitality. The Lone Eagle Grill at the Hyatt is an amazing lakeside restaurant with an outdoor firepit that is a nice place to enjoy a cocktail and appetizers. There is also a pier with a bar that serves tasty food and drinks in the summer.
Sacramento is a 2 hour drive, San Francisco 3.5 hours.
In summer, theatergoers flock to see the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival at nearby Sand Harbor. https://www.laketahoeshakespeare.com/
Winter sees snow boarders and skiers maneuvering to Diamond Peak and Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe.
Lake Tahoe contains enough fresh, crystal clear water to cover the state of California to shin depth. On June 12, 2011 I drove from Reno and saw people sledding in the snow that lingers just off the Mount Rose Highway and the same afternoon I swam in Lake Tahoe and the pool at Burnt Cedar Beach, one of Incline Village's private beach facilities. The pool is heated but the lake was still a little brisk in early summer!
Here is some general information about Lake Tahoe: http://www.tahoelifeofluxury.com/an-overview-of-lake-tahoe/
More world class ski resorts are clustered around Lake Tahoe than anywhere in the world. Diamond Peak is only 3 miles from my house and offers panaramic lake views and reasonable prices. Northstar Resort and Mount Rose are 20 minutes, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Heavenly Valley and more are about 45 minutes away. Great sledding, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, etc. are within 10 minutes and I have a toboggan, sleds, and saucers for your use. Rachel and I occasionally sled down the hill right next to our house. We build snowmen and make snow angels in the yard.
In summer, Tahoe offers world class hiking, mountain biking, boating, golf, etc. Golf at the Championship course is especially fun. The ball flies at least a full club farther (and curves less if you slice) due to the thinner air at elevation. I have more power than finesse and have hit drives close to 400 yards and have made an eagle on the par 5 tenth hole with an 2 iron off the tee and a wedge into the green. There is a popular walking and running path on Lakeshore Boulevard close by. There are 2 private beaches that you can access for a guest fee ($12 for adults, $4 for children under 18). One private beach has a boat ramp, the other has an Olympic size swimming pool overlooking the lake (with lifeguards and a waterslide), and a huge grassy area with a finger that goes out into the lake. Both beaches have concessions, sand volleyball courts, and charcoal barbeques. Emerald Bay on the West shore of Lake Tahoe is the most photographed place in the world.
Casino gaming is close by, including the Hyatt in Incline Village (less than 5 miles from the house), and the nearby casinos near the California borders in North and South Lake Tahoe, and of course Reno, where I work. Reno and its international airport are a 45 minute drive away.
My home is located on a cul-de sac with almost no traffic. In the summer, I love golf, barbequeing, boating, lounging on the deck and stargazing. Thousands of stars are visible due to the elevation and lack of city lights.
The flume trail, rated one of the top 5 mountain bike rides in the world, ends in Incline Village at the former Ponderosa Ranch. I've done it once and it was amazing and very challenging. Marlette Lake is perched well up above the level of Lake Tahoe and is a perfect place to break for lunch. My favorite hike is the Rubicon Trail on the West shore of Lake Tahoe, a 6 mile one way hike with spectacular lake views that ends at Emerald Bay. During the summer a free public bus returns you to your car at D.L. Bliss state park. See http://www.bluego.org/documents/westshore_activities.pdf
Another wonderful hike goes up to the old Stateline fire lookout behind the Biltmore Casino in Crystal Bay. The lookout is rather difficult to find, so don’t bother looking for signs. From my house, drive 5-10 minutes almost to the California border to Crystal Bay, Nevada, turn up Reservoir Road between the Tahoe Biltmore Lodge and the old Tahoe Mariner casinos (just before you reach the Biltmore), then turn right at the firehouse. Continue up the hill until you reach a point where a steeper U.S. Forest Service road doubles back to the left above you. Follow this for a quarter mile beyond the green metal gate to the parking lot. Make sure not to block the gate. The Stateline Fire Lookout, though often overlooked and off the beaten path, is probably the best high-elevation vantage point on Lake Tahoe’s North Shore. This is an especially great place to bring your kids. A short quarter mile hike uphill gives you an extremely rewarding and spectacular bird’s eye view.

Many other wonderful hikes are close by and I've got a book describing them for you.
