-- AS FEATURED IN CA HOME+DESIGN MAGAZINE'S AND 7X7'S TOP 5 GETAWAY ESCAPES --
Discover an architectural gem just a short walk from the beach, Heavenly Ski Gondola (just voted #1 Ski Destination by USA Today) and Heavenly Village. Nestled behind a private meadow and a pair of twin pine trees is our "Chalet de Celeste". Our contemporary mountain home was just completed in 2012 emphasizing natural materials with an artful combination of Italian marble and travertine, tumbled river rocks, Brazilian mahogany, glass railings, floating staircases, hand scraped hickory floors, Miele appliances and Grohe finishes throughout. Entering through a slate warming room, the heart of the custom home is the great room on the main living area. This encompasses the open kitchen, the dining room and the living room. The gourmet kitchen is a chef's dream. It has walnut Studio Becker cabinets, high end stainless steel appliances, a built in wine cooler with storage for 20 bottles, under cabinet lighting, an electric range and oven, and a large island topped with a white Calacatta marble slab bar that seats two.
The dining table and benches are made from reclaimed Indonesian teak wood with seating for 10. The highlight of the living area is the glass enclosed gas fireplace. There is ample seating on the brompton cocoa leather sofa and club chairs. The 60 inch flat screen can be seen from all areas of the great room so you won't miss a play during the big game. There is an in wall home theater system with iPod dock. The vaulted floor to ceiling windows soar to 30 feet high and automatically lead the eyes out to the picturesque pine tree valley and mountain views. This is the perfect place for entertaining, shooting a game of pool, and relaxing after a long day of skiing next to the gas fireplace. This area is surrounded by a large slate deck that would be perfect for an afternoon BBQ.
An elegant custom floating alder wood and glass staircase beneath angled skylights leads from the living area to the master suite. This is truly a retreat with a master spa like bath with his and her vanities, Italian travertine walls and floors, a walk in multi head steam shower and granite bench, heated floors and towel racks, Toto washlet, 20 foot high vaulted ceilings and windows, queen sleigh bed, and full pine tree views. The other two bedrooms are down stairs. The first has a queen sleigh bed. The second bedroom has two twin sleigh beds. There is a bathroom next to the lower bedrooms with a dual head shower and soaking tub, glass blocks, linen closet, dual vanities, heated floors and towel racks, and Italian ceramic walls and floors. The washer and dryer are on this level as well.
There is a spacious light filled loft above the living room. This part of the home is perfect as a second living area for the kids or as a private retreat for the in laws. The leather sofa in the living room can also be converted into a queen sized bed. An inflatable aero mattress is also supplied to all of our guests.
The home is adorned through out with custom artwork and furniture of which many pieces are designed by members of our family.
On the back side of the property a jetted hot tub awaits sunken into it's own private deck. This is a great place to lounge around, soak, and enjoy time with friends and family.
There is private parking for up to 2 vehicles on the property.
We designed this Chalet to take full advantage of the natural light and Heavenly Valley mountain views, and hope you enjoy the stunning combination of natural materials and exquisite product selections that truly set our dream home apart.

Great place to stay for a snowboarding weekend! Just enough room for 5 people, awesome hot tub, nice add-ons (heated floors and towel racks, fancy toilets!), adorable and warm gas fireplace, quiet area. About 5 mins drive to the Heavenly gondola and casinos. Kitchen isn't huge but has everything you need plus an array of appliances for the more adventurous visitors! It took 3 of us to figure out how to turn on the induction cooktop but other than that, all good :) Our only complaint was the lack of drapes in the master bedroom - it would be a crime to cover up these picturesque windows, however we cannot sleep past 7am without darkness :(
The chalet is one of the most beautiful homes I've ever seen, let alone stayed in. The service by the host was prompt and professional and checking in and out were a breeze. We'd love to visit again!
Lodging: The house sleeps 8 very comfortably. It could sleep more, but I'm glad we kept it at 8. We had 2 in each bedroom and 2 in the loft area, everyone felt like they had their own private space, and no one had to sleep in the downstairs living room/common area.
Location: The house is about a 15 min walk to town (retail, restaurants, casinos, grocery) and less than a 5 min drive to the Heavenly Mountain Resort (California Main Lodge). The neighborhood is safe and a great place to access running trails.
Luxury: We enjoyed the pool table, hot tub, fireplace, home theater surround system, and pancake griddle! :) Everything is modern - kitchen, bathrooms, decor. Hardwood floors throughout. LOVELY.
This is one of my fave AirBnBs. I would totally recommend staying here. We'll be back again. Thanks for sharing, Mark!
Cozy modern chalet and beautifully appointed. The owners clearly have an eye for design, and the pictures are a very clear representation of the property. The beds were some of the comfiest i've ever slept in, and the whole house is fitted with a very efficient heating system so we were never cold despite the temperatures outside. The hot tub and steam room shower really is a nice treat after a hard day on the mountain!
The house is also very conveniently located for the nearby California lodge ski lifts, less than 5 minutes by car. My friends were all totally blown away when we arrived, and we're all eager to come back again soon. Thanks Mark!
This is a gorgeous property that really completes the Tahoe experience! I spent a weekend here with a group of friends and it had everything we needed and more! The furnishing is modern and all the appliances are fairly advanced (the bathroom upstairs has a bidet, doesn't get any better than that!). The mattresses are memory foam, so super comfortable. The property is stocked with extra towels, sheets, pillows, so don't feel the need to bring your own. If you plan on cooking, I recommend going through the kitchen cabinets because there are a lot of sauces and seasoning that you can use. The in-built sound system is amazing, and the house is actually quite soundproof. Pool table, hot tub, TV's in every room, board games (in closet of twin bedroom downstairs), and proximity to Heavenly are a huge plus! Mark is very responsive and helpful as well. Only thing is that there is an extensive list of check-out procedures, so be sure to give yourself enough time to clean up.
Perfect getaway. Everything you need is available at Chalet de Celeste. Well situated, feeling secluded yet close to restaurants, ski lift, etc. The decor and design is perfectly thought out.
Chalet de Celeste was an awesome cabin, had all the amenities one could want, my family and I had a great time.
Great spacious house. Our group of 6 never felt cramped. Location was awesome, close enough to walk to casinos and heavenly resort but far enough to feel secluded. Lovely hot tub and stocked kitchen for cooking. Would recommend this place for sure.
Out stay at the chalet was really awesome! Everything was provided, and the location is nice too. Very close to everything that we needed! If we ever go back to Lake Tahoe we will definitely want to stay there again! :)
The place was fantastic - everything looked and functioned as promised! Mark was very responsive. I would book this place again.
