Alpine fun and adventure await you and your family or friends right outside the door of this spacious and elegant three-bedroom, Tahoe City vacation rental home poised right at the foot of Alpine Meadows Ski Resort. With ski-in/ski out access to the Sherwood chair lift in winter, easy access to hiking and tennis in the summer, and perks like a jetted tub, Xbox360, and a huge deck where you can watch skiers weave their way down the slopes, you'll be ideally situated to all the resort's activities, and just a 20 minute drive to beautiful Lake Tahoe.
Tucked away in a pine-studded parcel, a great view of the trees is never far away through... the multiple big windows as you sink into the plush furniture and sip a cup of your favorite coffee (freshly ground in the kitchen with the coffee grinder). Grab one of the CDs you packed away and listen to some music. (Or slip you iPod into the dock.) After a trek on the nearby Tahoe Rim Trail, come back to this, your special refuge, and soothe your weary bones in the jetted tub. If you simply must see the headlines, watch your favorite cable news show, or bring up your blog of choice on the free WiFi. Or, relax with a movie on DVD (with Blu-ray). Pick one from the DVD library. In winter, warm yourself in front of the charming wood stove.
Come meal time, there's plenty of room for everyone to pitch in with the culinary chores. Your chef will really appreciate this top-rated Blue Star gas stovetop/oven, with perfect flame height for sauteing and simmering. All the appliances are recessed, so you'll have maximum room without bumping into each other as you slice and dice. There's plenty of room in the big double fridge for all your cold stuff, lots of cupboards, and roomy, tiled counters that will clean up easily. And speaking of clean up; it'll be easy with the stainless steel double sink and the dishwasher. Enjoy your meal at the long dining table with room for six, and a great view of the surrounding forest.
This lovely, modern, bi-level home has three bedrooms, a loft, and room for eight. Kids will love scurrying up the ladder to the loft where they can write or color at the little log writing desk, and look down over the living area from their special perch. Among three bedrooms and the loft, you'll have your choice between a king, a queen, a full, and two twin beds. Three full bathrooms - one with a jetted tub - means getting ready for bed or for the day will be quick and easy. Take your laundry over to the utility room where you'll find a front-loader washer and dryer. No trips to the laundromat here!
No matter when you stay at this amazing home, you just can't beat the location! But, when it comes to Alpine Meadows, it's mostly about the skiing, and - with this home's direct ski/in, ski out access to the mountain via the Sherwood chairlift, there's no better place for a skier to be! Ski season is between late-November through mid-May - the longest of any Lake Tahoe ski resort. With a diverse terrain located on 6,000 acres, 14 lifts provide access to 100 different runs. And, when you're done on the slopes, you grab a bite to eat and relax at one of two lodges.
In summer, it's just about a 15-minute drive to the Lake Tahoe shore. If you've got the boat, you can launch it for free at the Coast Guard station. Cyclists can treat themselves to a scenic workout on the 2.5-mile path from Tahoe City to Dollar Point. Hikers and cyclists both will find plenty of places to explore over at Burton Creek State Park. Enjoy a meal lakeside at one of Tahoe City's fine restaurants, or shop for that perfect piece of art for the den. Golfers: make the ten-minute drive up to Tahoe City Golf Course (about 15 minutes away) for a day on the links!
Whether you're looking for fun in the snow, on the trail, or on (or in!) the water, this beautiful home at the base of Alpine Meadows resort is your ticket to a relaxing, rewarding, and comfortable getaway in the gorgeous Lake Tahoe area.
