Summer outdoor concerts, theater, special events and spontaneous happenings add to the (bug-free) evening ambiance. (Bugs are on the South and West Shore where the marsh is :)
SPRING: Hike to Hidden Beach! See the wildflower in Mt Rose Meadows! If there is still snow snow-shoe around Spooner Lake, or see the spring birds, sledding (in the backyard) or at Mt Rose Meadows.

FALL: Most blissful time of quiet and color. 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, explore the heritage with artistic events and happenings throughout the watershed.

Interaction with Guests
Ruth is usually on hand to field questions and available by ph(phone number hidden) or cell (phone number hidden).
This neighborhood has walking access to some of the best trails in the basin. It is less than a mile from Tunnel Creek Trail 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 Lake Tahoe's 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.
The local bus stop (TART - Tahoe Area Regional Transport) is 1/4 mile from the house and the ski shuttle is 1 block from the house. You can easily bike to anything in the town :)
Other Things to Note
If you can't find the house, please call me, or knock on the duplex doors across the street 1047 (they are my tenants). DO NOT BOTHER the uphill neighbor at 1050 War Bonnet Way.
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). 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, (there is a line painted on the street) as the uphill neighbor needs 10 ft street clearance in front of our home 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).
HOT TUB HYGIENE: Please bathe before using the Hot Tub, as we use minimal chemicals.
Pets: Please bring a pet bed for your dog or cat and be sure to carry bags on walks to clean up after your dog (the snow melt carries all debris downhill into the Lake, which damages the crystalline health of the Lake)
Responsibility: We gladly provide kayaks, bikes, sleds, snow shoes and other seasonal types of equipment for your use. We ask you return all equipment in the condition you found it and let us know of any problems that may arise.
I highly recommend staying here in Tahoe. The kitchen is well stocked and the place offers lots of space. If you stay here, make use the kayaks and mountain bikes. Tahoe is beautiful and this is the perfect base camp to see it!
We had a great experience at Basecamp. It was in a great location and had all the amenities we needed. We used the bikes and cycled up the flume trial in the morning then took the kayaks out in the afternoon on the lake. The best day ever! :-)
The host was very helpful and has a great deal of knowledge to share.
Many thanks, Kim and Nithin
We had a really nice stay here. The apartment was great, all rooms were clean, spacious and well furnished and the kitchen was well-equipped. The scenery was really amazing with quick beach access and a trail up the hills for a great view of the lake starting right behind the house.
Mechele hosted us and she was really friendly and helpful with any inquiries we had. She gave us great recommendations for local small hikes and we also made use of their Kayaks. Finally the addition of a nice hot-tub made this a really cool and easy stay. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone going to stay at Tahoe.
We loved staying at Basecamp! Met some friends there for a few days and there was plenty of room. Very accommodating and helped us find good hikes and good food. Thanks so much!
We had a wonderful time here! We didn't get to meet Jacquie but her friend Michelle who is house sitting for her these couple of months was an absolute star! She was incredibly informative on what to do and where to go around here. She even came to pick us up and drove us to an all day breakfast place when where we went didn't serve breakfast anymore! (Wild Flower Cafe is the place to go btw) she was the best host anyone could ask for and the children were a joy to meet.
The place itself was very very cozy and homey. We had everything we could need and even extra blankets to bring out for a picnic. It is very conveniently located and yet quiet and secluded.
What a great Tahoe experience! We made it in late and we were welcomed with two homemade salads since the local restaurants close early. The hot tub was blissful. The bed was oh so comfy. The neighborhood was quaint. The home was perfect. Thank you!!
Our Experience was great！Access and convenience location were all wonderfull！ Jacquie and her friends are very nice and kind people. But very regret that we didnt have the chance to meet the host. This place was very clean and quiet. I would definitely recommend it to anyone again.
