This comfortable 3 bedroom, 2 bath home with large entertaining room comfortably accommodates 1-12 people and is located in Talmont Estates just south of Tahoe City on the West Shore. The open kitchen makes cooking a pleasure, while the spacious family room will comfortably seat everyone for drinks, movies (Internet TV with NetFlix), games, or relaxation time by the fireplace after a day on the slopes or at the beach. Numerous amenities and comforts are at your disposal including washer/dryer, 6 person Hot Tub, Gas Barbeque, 2 TVs, Stereo, CD player, Internet and DVD. The home is approximately 50 yards from the entrance to Paige Meadows and the Tahoe National Forest, a great place for hiking, mountain biking and cross country skiing. The location is convenient for restaurants and shops in Tahoe City, South Shore and West Shore, world famous ski resorts (Homewood, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, North Star), river rafting, hiking and biking trails, South Shore Casinos and much, much more! The home is perfect for couples, families and friends!
There are 2 rooms with queen beds, one has its own bath and flat screen TV. The third bedroom has 4 single bunk beds. Both Queen Rooms have elevated views of the back landscape and catch morning sun. The Bunk Room faces west, good for those not up with the birds (maybe up with the owls).
The second level has two queen sofa beds and a dual reclining love seat ideal for relaxing after a long day playing in the mountains. Up to 12 people can find serviceable beds.
The common area contains a table for 8-10, a warm fireplace in the living room and a U shaped kitchen with ample room for cooking. There are 2 stools at the bar between the dining table and kitchen area with loads of counter space. A lofted sealing to a center lengthwise beam of the house along with the living room, kitchen and dining room's open floor plan create an airy common area with enough space for multiple activities. Pulling up the multiple window shades provides panoramic look outs to the forested neighborhood and cool air in the evenings. The South facing wall contains high windows and a sliding glass door to the deck letting sunlight into the common area throughout the day.
There are flat screen TVs and stereos in both the living room (internet TV with DVD player) and Master Bedroom. The entire place has everything you might expect from a mountain cabin along with the comforts you have at home.
We try to keep the house well stocked and it is common for the various vacationers to replace basic items such as oil, coffee/tee or detergents as needed so you may want to check for these before you head to the market for these items. The closest is at the base of the mountain in Sunnyside; about 4 minutes if you don’t stop to take photos of the fantastic lake view on the way down.
We really enjoy this cabin the in summer as it is only one house removed from the entrance of Paige Meadows were you can hike or mountain bike to the top of Alpine Meadow's Scott peek and its exciting views or enjoy an easy afternoon walk in Paige. It is not uncommon to see bear tracks so you must be careful to use the trash container at the top of the 3 car driveway.
After benefiting from Tahoe's fresh air and active lifestyle the hot tub can be a blessing and in my view a must in the mountains. The starlight views are worth staying up late. Make sure to turn off the exterior lights to get the full effect once everyone is safe at home!

Mountaintop Private Family Cabin with Hot Tub Tahoe City, California
Additional Location Information
Telmont Mountain is a neighborhood of homes and cabins. We are at the top of the neighborhood which ends at the border of the National Forest. There are only a few full time residents in the area making this a quiet and peaceful dead end street. Telmont is part of Tahoe City and although you feel like you are deep in the mountains you are only 8 minutes from the town center. Sunnyside is at the base of the Telmont and offers a small “village” market, a few restaurants and rental shop.
Right out the door you can enter the forest and its miles of trails. This is a local’s favorite for mountain biking, cross country skiing and hiking. The vast flat meadow make the journey easy for the whole family or you can climb into the forest if you aspire for something requiring more energy.
Tahoe's premier ski hills are less than 15 minutes from your 3 car driveway. Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and Homewood all offer a variety of opportunity to enjoy the snow! Tahoe City offers a relaxing raft float down the Truckee River in the summer along with Sunday evening live music by the lake at the public beach. This is the springboard town for all activities summer or winter and you will find ample services available to support your needs.
