This newly renovated cottage is located one block from the lake in Kings Beach with fun amenities such as a firepit, outdoor dining table and a bocce ball court.
Karen is a former HGTV designer. Mikel was her television producer. They wanted a place in Tahoe that reflected the fun of SF and LA so they bought a piece of sh** cinder block bunker and completely rehabbed it.
The fenced-in yard has a wonderful firepit for year-round campfires, as well as an outdoor dining table, bocce ball court, hammock (in the summer) and a BBQ. Inside, you have a Nest thermostat to regulate the temperature, a 47" HDTV in the living room with Roku and Apple TV to play music or watch your favorite streaming shows (FREE Netflix, Hulu and HBOgo) and a Nintendo Wii. There's also a 32" HDTV in the queen sized bedroom. (Only streaming TV, no local channels or cable). If you're still bored, plenty of parlor games await you. Down pillows, organic cotton bath towels, and a Thermostatic 8" rain hood in the shower were all chosen to recreate our favorite four star hotel experiences. The interior doors are salvaged doors from SF Victorians, the floors are black bamboo, the coffee is Blue Bottle and the walls are brand new bead board.
This is a true getaway. You will have a house manager and handyman nearby if you need anything, but otherwise, we want you to make yourselves at home.
Besides being a block from the actual lake and downtown Kings Beach, you are a short drive to Northstar, Squaw, Alpine Meadows, Homewood and Diamond Peak ski resorts as well as the casinos in Incline Village.
You are steps away from plenty of shops and restaurants. A 24 hour Safeway is a two minute drive or a short walk.
There are beds for 4, maximum occupancy 6. We provide one fancy Frontgate queen size air bed for additional guests, and although the couch doesn't fold out, I'm 6' 0" and have slept on it comfortably. Pets are allowed with a $50/stay fee.
We are a one night minimum house, but ask for a two night minimum if it includes Saturday. We will, however, waive this requirement if you're booking the week of....Read more
