The Space

If you are looking for walking access to Tahoe's Northeast wonder of water, boulders, wilderness and peace....welcome to base camp!

The house is located below Diamond Peak Ski Resort and about 2/3 mile up from the Lake, and 1 mile from the Village, on the edge of town next to the famous Ponderosa Ranch (Bonanza) and NV state park, which is why the hiking and biking trails start right out the door!

The neighborhood of working families and students is one of the few where over 70% of the homes are occupied all year round :)

Inside - CA King "Embody" latex and memory foam bed plus futon couch (potential extra bed), private bath w/double headed shower and 24 hr use of the common area: kitchen, living room, hot tub, laundry and deck. You are welcome to cook your meals in, using a fully loaded kitchen, or enjoy 5 Star to $5 meals within a mile of the house.

Outside - 4 seasons of awesome:

You are walking distance from: Lone Eagle Grill (at Lake), Big Water Grill (view of Lake) Sierra Nevada College, Hyatt Spa, and Incline Recreation Center.

Note:There are NO extra charges, deposits or additional fees over the day rate, plus you get free use of 4 mtn bikes, 2 kayaks, snowshoes, sleds, and 2 comp passes to local private beaches ($25 value!). And the location provides the outdoor recreation options that do not require a car!

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) .Local 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. The Lake is still reflecting the fall colors just starting to show. Biking, hiking, kayaking, SUP all still amazing. Watch local bears feed on salmon at Taylor Creek (on the south shore), or track unique and migrating birds, walk the 2-mile loop around Spooner Lake for 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: Snow Shoe in the Mt Rose Meadows, and smile when a little Chickadee bird lands on your outstretched hand! Hike to Hidden Beach, X-Country ski from Tunnel Creek Station (1 mile), or Spooner Lake (12 miles southeast), Tahoe City (10 miles west) or Mt Rose (7 miles north). Downhill free style on Mt Rose (6 miles) and various spots in the upper neighborhoods of Incline. Sledding right up the backyard, or Tahoe Vista Regional Park (7 miles west, who also has x-country) .

SKIING: The house is located right below Diamond Peak Ski area - free shuttles leave 2 blocks from your door.

Free ski shuttles leave Hyatt Resort starting 7am (about 1 mile away) to:
Northstar, Alpine and Squaw (website hidden) Rose - 6-7 miles (20 min drive)

Heavenly - 24 miles (45 min drive) to South Shore
Alpine or Squaw - 18 miles (30 to 90 minutes depending on traffic)

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.

Other options:
Our non-profit, Sustainable Tahoe has Stand-Up Paddle Boards we are making available to guests if you become a member for $20 per person, . Becoming a member of Sustainable Tahoe also enters you in the raffle to win one of these boards.

There are 2 cats (mostly live outside) and one dog on the property. I used to allow dogs in this room, but the last one chased and bit my cat so unless you have been here before, with a dog that does not bother (email hidden) more dogs upstairs. The downstairs unit is still fine for dogs and there is a dog sitter who takes dogs overnight 2 doors up (Toree Warfield - has a airbnb ad for dogs only)

Check In
  • Jacquie and David were inviting and thoughtful hosts. Their recommendation to Hidden Beach was the highlight of our trip and it's just a short hike from their property! With very clean and comfortable accommodations, we won't hesitate to come back again.

  • Such a great place in one of the most beautiful spots in the Tahoe area! Jacquie and David are incredible hosts, completely opening up their home to their guests and are always full of suggestions about where to go and what to do. They are also really generous, letting us use kayaks, bikes, gear or anything else we needed during our stay. The room was spacious and offered us privacy when we wanted it. Thank you guys so much for making our stay in Tahoe so memorable!

    July 2014
  • Jacquie and her husband were absolutely fantastic hosts. The place was even nicer than it appeared in the picture, we had our own spacious bedroom and bathroom with dual showerheads and an enormously luxurious bed. Jacquie is a true steward of Lake Tahoe and knows anything and everything you could possibly need to have the exact experience you're looking for. In addition, with her ties to the local community, if she doesn't know something, she knows someone who does (e.g. I mentioned that I might need to get my bridesmaid's dress hemmed last-minute and she had a friend down the street who's a seamstress). Talk to her about Sustainable Lake Tahoe - she's incredibly passionate about the place she lives and is doing amazing work to preserve it's beauty. Recommend whole-heartedly and would go back again.

  • Spacious, wonderful shower and bed... Very quiet! Jacquie was so considerate! We absolutely adored it! Good location if you are into outdoor activities! Can't wait to get back to Tahoe!

    June 2014
  • Jacquie is an amazing host. She is thoughtful, warm and generous. The room she offers looks like a executive suite. The location is also very nice, with a nice ocean view trail started nearby. We also played with her kayak in Lake Tahoe. It's a wonderful experience.

    June 2014
  • My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights. Jacquie was gone on business, but David was very friendly and knowledgeable. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Using the kitchen was super easy as they have drawers and cabinets labeled. They have space set aside for guests to store their own food in the fridge and cupboard. Condiments, spices & oil were provided along with some breakfast items. They had a binder and a bulletin board full of very useful information about the area. The neighbors were also very friendly and said that if we needed anything, to just ask. We hope that we get a chance to stay here again.

    June 2014
  • We had an excellent stay with David, unfortunately Jacquie was away on business during our visit. The room was clean and quiet, the bed was comfortable and relaxing after hiking and walking all day. Their home is located centrally to most of the things we wanted to do in Tahoe (we prefer Incline Village to most other areas of the lake). David went well out of his way at every opportunity to make our stay a great one. He is just in love with the area and can't wait to share with you how to get the most out of it.

    June 2014
  • Jacquie and David were great hosts! We were immediately welcomed by our housemates, Lindsey and Elyse, who stayed in the lower part of the house for the weekend. Super sweet girls!
    Where to begin?! When we first got there, we changed, and headed to Raley's, right down the street to grab lunch (great sammies at the deli) and then headed down to Ice Beach (across from the Hyatt and Lone Eagle) where we took the kayak out. Weather was amazing and perfect to be out on the water. We made base at the beach and had lunch, laid out and relaxed. Wished we would have bought a volleyball - beautiful park at the beach with lots of activities. We headed back up to the house, got on our shoes and decided to take a hike down to Hidden Beach. We were able to have use of the mountain bikes but we decided to foot it. Beautiful hike down to Hidden Beach where the locals are. I would suggest bringing your kayak or paddle board out there rather than being out at Ice Beach (lots of boats and wave runners making waves.) Also, if you take the mountain bikes, your able to take a shuttle back near the neighborhood. If you want to bring an ice chest or beach supplies, I would suggest driving down (5 mins maybe) and then walking the rest of the way.
    After we got back we changed and wanted to do a little gambling. Went out for a drink and then tried one of the recommended restaurants 2 minutes from the house. T's Rotisserie was super good! We highly recommend it! When we got back we took a dip in the hot tub and remained there for the rest of the night with some coldies (someone had left some near-beers in the fridge that we got to have, which was awesome since my fiance doesn't drink.) The neighbors from across the street came over and introduced themselves and told us about nightlife. We didn't make it to the open bonfire at Lone Eagle for the sunset but that is on our list for next time! The bed was ridiculously comfortable (we wished we could have taken it with us) There was also a massage table which we took advantage of. I loved the all-natural sugar treats that were in our room. We took off the next morning to enjoy breakfast at King's Beach and the day in Tahoe City. We HIGHLY recommend Jacquie and David's house for a great stay, they were so helpful and recommended lots of things to do, see, and eat! We can't wait to stay again! We just might make it a yearly tradition for Memorial Day Weekend. Airbnb is the best!

  • The experience could not have been easier or more enjoyable. David and Jackie were most helpful, providing me with information about the bus system as well as introducing me to their neighbors. I felt like I lived in the neighborhood, after being there for just a few minutes.

    The house was quiet, with a lovely kitchen and living area, as well as a private bedroom, with an outstanding bed. The bathroom could not have been nicer. I look forward to returning, hopefully, later this summer.

    May 2014
  • My son and i felt cared for and nurtured by David and Jacquie. We felt like family being in their home. The room and the house was everything we expected and more. The house is in a quiet lovely neighborhood with hiking trails literally from the back yard. We connected and will definitely stay in touch....We were lucky to be with them for my sons graduation and birthday...
