Welcome to Incline Village, Tahoe's Pristine northeast corner where the water sparkles and artists are inspired (your hosts are artists).
Inside: Fully furnished and spacious 1-bdrm apt: kitchen, bedroom, living room plus... (shared) hot tub!

Outside: Wildlife, water and trails that start right out your door.
Price includes use of (shared) double kayak and SUP Boards (stored at beach, 2/3 mile downhill) plus bikes!

The space

This private, large 1-bedroom apt is the downstairs apartment (in-law unit) of your host's home. Our (1982) 2-story house is insulated and your downstairs apt is private with separate entrance, but NOT soundproof.

Note: We rent part of the upstairs also and those guests have access to the hot tub located right outside your door also. We also live upstairs and work from home in our garage studios.

The apt has a: kitchen, living room, bedroom and full bath with W/D and the (shared) hot tub is right outside your door (along with deck chair, plus a Smoker and Weber BBQ grill).

The kitchenette has a cook top, microwave, small fridge and counter-top dutch oven. Spacious 2 sink bathroom includes W/D. The Smart TV (internet) also has (minimal) cable TV access (HBO + local channels).

Sleeping accommodations: queen bed, small futon coach that unfolds into a double bed, tri-fold futon mattress (stored in closet) and the L-shaped coach in the living room can sleep 2 people. (Extra bedding located in closet in bathroom.)

The house is located 2/3 mile up from the Lake, 1/2 mile below Diamond Peak Ski Resort, 2/3 mile up from Hyatt Spa and resort, 1/2 mile from Sierra Nevada College and the Tahoe Environmental Center. It is 1 mile from the Tunnel Creek Trail to the south and the Village center to the north. To access hiking trails into the forest or down to the lake, start right out the door!

Incline Village is a resort town with less than 30% year round residents. We are located in a working, student and family neighborhood, which is one of the few in town that is over 70% occupied all year long :)

Guest access

Guests have access to:
driveway parking, hot tub, and shared use of:
4 Mtn bikes
Double kayak and SUP boards (stored at the Lake on racks between Ski Beach and the Hyatt), snow shoes, sled, movies and various board/card games. Yes...this place is loaded! :)

Just to highlight the extra value you get having access to our equipment, here are some local rental prices:
Kayak rentals would be $30 an hour, $80 a day
SUP Board rentals run $20 hr or $75 a day
Mtn Bike rentals are $55 a day
Show Shoes $15 day
Beach Passes $12 per day per person
and Geotourism hosting - Priceless :)

Interaction with guests

We respect your privacy, yet always available to answer questions and help customize adventurers for you. Your room has a notebook full of adventures that start right out your door and connect you to the 8 Worlds of Tahoe.

Other things to note

David designs artistic Bear boxes, wildlife signs and other items that serve to raise awareness and funds for our non-profit Sustain Tahoe, so occasionally project needs may occupy (temporary) space on the driveway, but will not hinder your access adventures - which start in the backyard :)

COMMUNICATION: Please let us know who will be staying (if you book the reservation for someone else). Your review is tied to your Profile and if you are booking for someone else - we need to know.

NO SMOKING anywhere on the property. The Tahoe forest is VERY DRY and vulnerable to the slightest spark.

CONSIDERATION: While each quest space is private, the house is NOT sound-proof (or child-proof). Quiet time is from 10:00pm to 8am. FYI: Nevada casinos and bars are open 24/7- great for late night parties.

HOT TUB HYGIENE: Please bathe before using the Hot Tub, as we use minimal chemicals.

PETS: Important to clean up after your dog, as everything that falls on the ground ends up in the Lake = our drinking water.

This was quite simply the best place either of us have ever stayed at on a holiday. Jacquie and David were attentive and welcoming but also gave us our own space. Their knowledge of the local area seemed second to none - and thanks to David we even saw a bear! It's located in stunning scenery, very comfortable and the kitchen/living room facilities were excellent and had a new feel. Being able to use the provided kayak and paddleboards on the lake was another huge bonus. Thank you so much to you both.

Perfect space for exploring Tahoe's stunning north shore especially for travelers who come to mtn bike, hike, swim, and paddle in the summer. Access to equipment and the private beach is lovely as are Jacquie and David, two wonderful people genuinely dedicated to ecotourism and human connection. The space is private although upstairs guests are frequent and it's a lively environment and community rather than sterile or one of complete solitude. The hot tub, chatting with such knowledgeable and gracious hosts, all within a peaceful neighborhood with a hiking trail right behind it made for a perfect visit. I highly recommend visiting Sierraville hot springs if you have the time as well. Will be back with my family in the winter as it could comfortably sleep at least 4. Thank you Jacquie and David!

Jacquie and David's place is excellent. It is secluded in the pines in the foothills and very quiet and relaxing. They do a great job communicating everything and scheduling use of the shared recreational items. They make it very easy to navigate a town that can be difficult if you aren't from the area along with give great info about must see places and things to do. We would definitely stay again! It is so nice to have all the amenities of home while on vacation.

We had a great stay at Jacquie and David's place. First of all, they are the nicest hosts ever - full stop. So make sure to speak with them on your first day because they will give you tons of "insider tips" of how to best do anything you're planning to do while in Tahoe. The place is very nice and just as described. The kitchen is very well equipped with anything you may need (coffee maker, water boiler, plates, pans, etc). The apartment was also bigger than it appeared to be from the pictures. It is very clean, super location (town is within walking or biking distance), and the hosts are super cool and will do anything they can to make your stay great. A+, good job Jacquie and David! : )

The place was very homey and cozy. We loved the manual recommendations of what to do in the area. We arrived late in the night and they sent us easy instructions to find the place. Only wish we could have stayed longer to do more in the area.

Check in was as easy as showing up. All of the extras that come with this place make it worth it! They have a great book put together with everything you need to know during your stay. I'd stay again.

Jacquie Or David User ProfileJacquie Or David is a superhost.

As the founder of Sustainable Tahoe, my (Jacquie) passion is to make it easy for visitors to access the 8-wonders of Tahoe with adventures that leave no trace! Your reservation supports my ongoing efforts to facilitate a Geotourism menu of adventures for the Tahoe region. (part of why we provide equipment and Lake access to our guests).

My service is also as a Primal Designer, Corporate Story Coach and a Geotourism Guide. I work from my home studio or on the road consulting, teaching, guiding and sharing these skills. I've even helped our guests craft baskets, build sheepskin boots or learn the 5 steps to good messaging for their business presentations.

David Colley, (co-host), is a skateboard designer, imagineer and electrician. He uses his creative skills in property upkeep, helping with community needs and supporting guest adventures. His current project is creating Wildlife Corridor signs to help people remember that we are in wildlife habitat. He also works from the garage studio.

Some fun and favorite Tahoe activities include:
1. The 1-mile backyard lower loop hike to say 'good morning' to the lake
2. Swimming, SUP or kayaking anywhere along the east shore
3. Mountain biking the 'Incline Flume' Trail (that ends at the house)
4. SUP at dawn or sunset to lie on the board and feel the pulse of the water
5. X-Country Skiing or Snowshoe on Mt Rose to hand feed the Chickadees
6. Taking Bus w/bikes to Tahoe City and bike along Truckee River and then the Lake
7. Getting on the 'Wet Toes Adventure' boat to stroll along the east shore (and camp at remote beaches)
8. Rest in the backyard hammock watching wildlife
