The Neighborhood

The Montgomery Estates neighborhood is one of the best in South Lake Tahoe. You'll find a very quiet street with nicer homes on larger lots. Forest service land backs to the home and there is an unbuildable Forest Service lot in front of the house for added privacy and a woodsy feel. At the same time, you are only a 5 minute drive from Heavenly, the Casinos and Lake Tahoe.

Other Things to Note

Operating under El Dorado County Vacation Rental Permit #1193

The Powerline Trail starts in the backyard. This mellow trail leads to lake views and either Cold Creek to the South or Heavenly to the Northeast. It is a great trail for hikes, snowshoeing, mountain biking, and cross country skiing. It joins up with the Cold Creek Trail which is one of the best and least known Tahoe mountain biking trails.

South Lake Tahoe, California, United States · Member since August 2012

I have been living in or visiting Lake Tahoe for the last 30 years. I bought these homes to be close to the excellent mountain biking, paddle boarding, beaches, skiing and rock climbing nearby. I am happy to share my homes with family and other people who want to enjoy Lake Tahoe!

Here is my climbing bio below. If you want to see the book i wrote for South Lake Tahoe rock climbing, check out SuperTopo.

Climbing Magazine once computed that three percent of Chris McNamara’s life on earth has been spent on the face of El Capitan—an accomplishment that has left friends and family pondering Chris’ sanity. He’s climbed El Capitan over 70 times and holds nine big wall speed climbing records. In 1998 Chris did the first Girdle Traverse of El Capitan, an epic 75-pitch route that begs the question, “Why?” Outside Magazine has called Chris one of “the world’s finest aid climbers.” He’s the winner of the 1999 Bates Award from the American Alpine Club and founder of the American Safe Climbing Association, a nonprofit group that has replaced over 12000 dangerous anchor bolts. He is a graduate of UC Berkeley and serves on the board of the ASCA.
