Outside - 4 seasons of awesome:
SPRING: Hike to Hidden Beach! See the wildflowers, spring birds at Mt Rose Meadows, walk the interpretive trail at Sand Harbor, or Tahoe Regional Park, bike along the Truckee River and maybe kayak (depending on weather), see the 3D movie at TERC, or the basket collection at the Gatekeepers Museum, weave a basket or craft a gathering pouch.
SUMMER: Free use of our 2 person Kayak, or Hike around the corner to Hidden Beach! Mountain bike Tunnel Creek and the famous Flume Trail (ends 1 mile from house), or hike the 2 mile loop around Spooner Lake and see the wildlife, or enjoy the local wild beaches along the east shore. Hike to Secret Harbor or up the backyard. Hike into Nevada State Park (the trail head is 1 mile from the house) . The wild (free) beaches are about mile from the house and I can provide access to the exclusive 'resident beaches'. Bus w/ bikes to Tahoe City and bike along the Truckee River and/or bike-friendly west shore full of native plants and wildlife. Summer outdoor concerts, theater, special events and spontaneous happenings add to summer evening ambiance.
FALL: Most blissful time of quiet and color. Biking, hiking, kayaking, SUP all still amazing. Wildlife, especially Bears and Wild Mustangs are most active in the Fall. Watch bears feed on salmon at Taylor Creek, or track unique and migrating birds, as you walk the 2-mile loop around Spooner Lake, which also is the best place to enjoy the Aspens incredible full fall color display. Great time to take mountain hikes for color and coolness, or enjoy local cultural, heritage and artistic events and happenings throughout the watershed.
WINTER: You will be at the doorstep to some of Tahoe's best back country activities!
Mt Rose back country is 6 miles from the house; snow shoe the meadows and smile when the Chickadee bird lands on your outstretched hand...or head right out the door up the hill or east to Hidden Beach.

The neighborhood has walking access to some of the most incredible trails in the basin!
It is less than 1 mile from Tunnel Creek Trailhead which leads to the famous Flume Trail! It is on the edge of town and at the beginning of the NV State Parks and all the wild beaches of the east shore. It is right below a local ski resort which creates awesome uphill hikes and right up the street from the lake, the Tahoe Environmental Center and Sierra Nevada College! Please do not bother, or use the driveway to turn around, at 1050 (the next house up the hill)
The local TART bus stop is 1/4 mile from the house and the ski shuttle 1 block. You can easily bike to anything in the town
Other Things to Note
PLEASE! Do NOT bother the uphill neighbor. If you can't find the house - call me, or knock on the duplex doors 1047 across the street (they are friendly)
No smoking anywhere on the property. The Tahoe forest is very dry and vulnerable to the slightest spark.
PLEASE do NOT use the (uphill) neighbors driveway to turn around (use the street). And if you park on the street (because your car is to low to make my driveway, or both spaces are taken) then please park closest to my driveway, as the uphill neighbor needs 4-5 ft street clearance to clear his driveway.
Consideration: While each quest space is private, the house is not sound-proof (or child-proof), so being quiet after 10:00 pm is appreciated and important :). (Nevada casinos and bars are open 24 hrs for the late night crowd)
Please bathe before using the Hot Tub, as we use minimal Bromine.
Responsibility: We gladly provide kayaks, bikes, sleds, snow shoes and any other equipment for your use, we only ask you return it in the condition you found it and let us know of any problems that arise.
Unbelievably positive first experience with AirBnB, I am totally hooked and evangelizing. Jacquie was a dream to stay with. What a rare treat to meet someone who is so genuinely gracious, generous, and kind. She went out of her way to guide us (my boyfriend and I) to the best trails to hike/bike and made sure we were cared for. When I decided last minute that I wanted to take bicycle spin the morning before we checked out, she literally dropped what she was doing and ran to a neighbor's house to secure a usable set of wheels for me. Unbelievable! She could teach hospitality 101.
The room was luxuriously spacious yet warm and had an incredible private bathroom. There is a hot tub on the front deck. The price is a steal. Don't even get me started about the kale chips. You'll never want to leave! The next time I come to North Lake Tahoe, I won't stay anywhere else! If you're even thinking about staying here, just book it. You won't regret it.
Michelle was an awesome host from welcoming us into the Casa, telling us all of the cool places to go and making sure we were taken care of. The bedroom is great - especially the shower! Really close to awesome hikes! Would definitely stay here again :)
I felt very welcomed in this house. It was a beautiful 2 story house with a great jacuzzi, very comfortable beds and many amenities and accommodations. Host was very knowledgeable about the area and give us some great tips on some hikes, shops and restaurants.
It was our first time in Lake Tahoe. Michelle, who was filling in for Jacquie, made our experience wonderful. She made us breakfast, gave us directions for the local eateries, let us borrow the bikes, you name it... Wonderful experience and would recommend to anybody:)
This was a wonderful place to stay. It is now among our very top places to stay with airbnb. The location, room and house are fabulous. Thank you so very much for making us feel at home. The only potential drawback is the sky light above the bed, that can't be "turned off" if one elected to take an afternoon nap. We would love to return. Thank you so much for a peaceful, restful time in a beautiful part of the world.
I stayed here for one night with my wife and one dog, room is spacious and clean. everything is in it and really comfy!
My stay at Big Water Access was wonderful! Not only were the accommodations more than I had expected, but our host - Meschele - was incredibly helpful, friendly, and informative. She was able to provide us with several different options of activities and also local attractions.
The room was clean, spacious, and had everything someone could ask for. From a comfortable bed, a clean bathroom, a private little area for coffee/tea, this listing was perfect after a day of outdoor activities. I will definitely be visiting again!
