This property is ideal if you like access to outdoor recreation. Just a short walk to Alpine Meadows, Sherwood Express chairlift and a short detour off Ray's Rut (one of Alpines ski runs) right to the house. Excellent back country skiing, cross country skiing and snowshoeing in Ward Valley, Twin Peaks, Stanford Rock, and Grouse Rock. There are areas near the house that make for fun sledding. Summer time hiking and mountain biking.
This location works well with a family that has different levels of activities. Parents often are comforted by the close proximity of the ski area to the house. This way kids and anyone that wants to get going early and ski/board all day can while those that want to relax and spend just a few hours on the slopes can as well. Making frequent stops to the house for food or rest is easy. This makes for a more fulfilling vacation for everyone.
The house is located on the downhill side of the street with only five steps down to the main level where there is a kitchen/dining/living room and wood stove with a magnificent view of Lake Tahoe and Twin Peaks. This home has highspeed internet. On the main level is a full bathroom and a bedroom with a comfortable queen bed. There are 2 small decks, one has a 3-4 person spa/hot tub and the other has a BBQ grill and firewood split and stacked. Primary heating is by a forced air system.
The lower level has a bedroom with a crib and a double bed including views of Lake Tahoe and Twin Peaks. There is a separate full bathroom with a tub and front loading washer and dryer. There is also a small den with a double futon, a 27' TV and a PlayStation3. The master bedroom is also on this level with a very comfy Cal-King bed, views of Twin Peaks and a full bathroom.
The loft located just above the living room has a small office area and a bedroom with a door. This bedroom has a queen bed, and a single with a trundle.

We had a great time here, the house was everything we hoped and more. The house is comfortable, big and fully equipped. Chris is an awesome host, we felt right at home. The house has everything you need to spend a great time and the neighborhood is beautiful and quite. The views are unique and peaceful.People are very friendly and kind. We can't wait to be there again.
We were very pleased with this property and our host, Chris. Chris was extremely helpful and communicative at all stages. He was responsive when I first inquired about the property, gave a good overview of the house and surrounding area, and even called me to fill me in on all the things to do while in town.
The house was clean, spacious, and had a beautiful view of the lake. Chris checked in with me on Day 1 to make sure the pre-rental cleaning job was up to par (which it was), and provided a useful binder with all the necessary logistical info I needed for the house and the area.
I definitely recommend this listing for anyone who's looking for a private location with great views, amenities (grill, hot tub, etc.), accommodations for many (4 bedrooms (comfortably slept 7, easily could have had 9 or 10), and a helpful, friendly host.
A comfortable family home in a superb quiet alpine location, with great views, including the lake in the distance. The home had everything I needed, and the excellent AV system and hot tub were a bonus. Chris was very helpful and easy to deal with. I shall return!
