This six bedroom, three bath, three-story chalet is the perfect getaway for both winter and summer. Located in Tahoe City, walking distance to the backside of Alpine Meadows Ski Area, at the Sherwood Lift high speed quad chair, you can walk there and ski home. No crowds, no lift lines, no hassles. You'll have access to a homeowners parking lot that will allow you to park directly across from the lift if you choose to drive.
When the snow melts, the surroundings become a playground to hike, bike, and fish. Tennis lovers can enjoy the homeowner tennis courts, golf lovers can enjoy the multitude of golf courses within a ten mile radius, beaches and picnic areas are within biking distance to the house. There are a ton of hiking trails just out the back door, and a great fishing creek just down from the home. The activities in the Tahoe Basin are endless. Located on the West shore of Tahoe City, you are three miles from the Lake and restaurants, and close to Chambers Landing and Meeks Bay with great sandy beaches, BBQ grills, incredible views, and a day full of bliss.
The house is chalet-style and has an open floor plan that can accommodate your family and friends well. The 22 foot cathedral ceilings, and floor to ceiling windows, with expansive wrap around deck offer a great house to enjoy the spectacular views from. With 2 sliding glass doors, the sunny deck becomes an extension of the great room with lots of patio furniture, BBQ, and privacy. There is a large 2 car garage with extra parking, and 40 foot enclosed walkway for easy access to your cars in the wintertime.
As you walk in the front door, you are greeted by a Spanish tile hallway leading to 3 bedrooms. All bedrooms have Hotel style bedding which includes 400 count sheets, feather or memory foam topper, duvet with bed cover, 4 pillows, and throw at end of bed. Sleep hard, play hard is our Lake Tahoe motto. There are 2 bedrooms with queen beds, each with a sliding glass door that exits out to a deck. Here you can enjoy a hot tub with the views of Twin Peaks. In the wintertime, you can watch skiers short cut home from Alpine Meadows through the front yard, and in the summertime you can watch squirrels climb the trees. Down the hall is laundry home, full bath, sauna area and another bedroom with queen bed and twin. The sauna is the size of one you'd have a gym: 2 levels with enough room to spread out in. Next to the sauna is a changing area and with a 'Finnish' touch. Cool off in the shower room with four shower heads and glass atrium that looks out into the forest. It's a great way to end a non stop day. The changing area is also connected to a full bathroom. There are bathrobes in each bedroom and in changing area for your use during your stay here.
The second level is the 'Great Room' and that it is. With 22 foot cathedral ceilings with floor to ceiling windows you won't be able to keep your eyes off the beautiful views of Twin Peaks . Bring your binoculars to view the occasional extreme skiers who snow mobiles up the mountain range and ski's down. Two sliding glass doors exit out to a sunny wrap around deck with a barbecue, and patio furniture which is used in summer and winter. This level has the kitchen, living area and dining area all looking out to the views. The granite countertop kitchen is fully stocked and overlooks the living and dining area. The living area has a leather sectional and faces a large stone fireplace. The crackling sound of wood burning on a snowy day is a treat. The dining area is 1/2 nook with pillows, and 1/2 chairs. You can eat here, or relax here. It all faces an entertainment center with TV. DVD, stereo, IPod dock, and some games. From all areas in the main area, you can watch TV, enjoy the fireplace and views, or socialize with the rest of your group.
Off the living area is another full bath attached to a bedroom with queen bed. Next to that room is the Master Bedroom. There is a King-size sleigh bed with TV, half bath off a changing area, and walk in closet. Indirect lighting and views of the forest make this room a bonus. Up the stairs from the living area, is an enclosed loft with pool table, and two twin beds. Play pool during the day, and use the room for sleeping at night.
Because Lake Tahoe's motto is just 'play hard' extra attention has been given to a great bed and a good nights sleep. All the bedding is Hotel Style with memory foam mattress pad, luxury 300 count sheets, 4 down or down alternative pillows, duvet, and bed throw. You'll feel like you're in an upscale hotel.
There is wireless internet, 3 satellite TV's, 2 DVD players, 2 iPods docks, and 2 stereo's, washer and dryer, as well as upgraded towels, and extra niceties to make your stay enjoyable. When you arrive at the house, all beds are made, towels hung, and coffee service is provided for your first morning. The furnishings are user friendly with plenty of seating for your family and friends. High ceilings with large wooden beams, triangle shaped windows, and mountain decor compliment the 'Tahoe' feeling. The location and amenities of this home makes this a great vacation home year-round.

Guestbook comments from the manager
We just returned from our thrid stay at this Chalet and it was the best yet! This is the perfect place for our three families to get together for some quality family time in the lovely town of Tahoe City. The Cabin is nestled high in the woods and we were so happy to get some fresh snow! The front yard is great for playing in the snow and some serious sledding We were an easy walk to a day at Alpine Meadows ski resort. And coming home to a warm jacuzzi and sauna was the perfect end to that day! Most of the time we just enjoyed relaxing in the spacious house by the fire and watching movies, playing games, eating home cooked meals in the great kitchen, etc. We never wanted to leave! Thank you so much for sharing your awesome mountain home!

"This House Rocks!!""This House Rocks!!"
I wanted to surprise my husband for his birthday in a big way and not with the typical party. Our family is spread out from Ca., AZ, MD and Ga. We have 5 granddaughters ranging in age from 9 months to 7 years, who have never been together due to the distance between us. This was the perfect opportunity to get everyone together. After searching numerous properties all over as the choices were many we settled on he alpine Chalet. We could not have been happier. This home more than accommodated the 5 girls and 8 adults in our party.
The home is beautiful both inside and out. Everything was well maintained and fully stocked with all the necessities.
The location to area attractions was great. We all loved being so close to Skiing, but close enough to Tahoe City to enjoy the local eateries. Our younger but legal aged adults enjoyed Pete n Peters which is a local sports bar. My husband and son enjoyed exploring all the great skiing trails at alpine Meadows. Unfortunately only got three days in due to a huge storm that left amazing skiing for the the remainder of the party who arrived over the weekend. We still had a blast watching the home movies and hanging out, with some of us in the hot tub. You have never experienced a hot tub until done outside, on a covered deck with 3 feet or snow coming down Lol.
The mountain views are spectacular as the house faces a beautiful mountain range. I would strongly recommend this property to any type of group from family getaways, to girls or guys weekends, to multiple couples. Something for everyone. I know if I plan another trip to the area I won't have to look far for a place to stay.
Thank you Sandy for opening your home!!!
Incredible home: Perfect location, great for famil
We love this place! It is perfectly located just off the slopes right by the Sherwood lift at Alpine Meadows. Nothing quite compares to finishing your day skiing into the backyard, clicking out of your bindings, and heading straight for the hot tub! The rooms are beautifully decorated, and there's tons of sleeping space, equally divided over the 3 floors. The top floor great room have awesome views. This a great place for one large family, or several vacationing together. We're a big family, and it worked great for us. Can't say enough about this place. I highly recommend it!!!
Activity and Interests
Located in one of the most desired neighborhoods on the North Shore, you are walking distance to the back side of Alpine Meadows with privileges. There is a private parking pass that will allow you to park right at the Sherwood lift, a quad high speed chair, and get on! Alpine Meadows allows the homeowners living in this neighborhood and/or guests to start here without at ticket and ski to the front side to purchase it. The homeowners have their own snow grader which purposely leaves enough snow along the roads so you can ski home if you want to leave your group. Don’t ski? Enjoy the hut at the lift for morning coffee, lunch, or just watching all the activity on the hill. In the summertime, the cat tracks become a playground for mountain biking and hiking. Endless trails with Lake views and wildflowers will keep you entertained. The snow melts into Ward Creek which is easily accessed from the house, known for its trout fishing. Tennis? yep…2 homeowner tennis courts are here for your use. Ward Valley is known for its peaceful setting of houses divided by forest land and views that are breathless. Just up from the Lake at Sunnyside Resort, you have total peace at the house, and 3 miles away you’re at the Lake with shops, restaurants, nightlife, and an array of activities. Tahoe City is the city to be in on the North Shore. With Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley, and Homewood at your doorstep, you won’t be able to ski a run twice. The winter months is a haven for skiing, snow boarding snow snowmobiling. cross county skiing, and with its backdrop the Lake.. you can’t beat the experience. Summer is as good as the winter.
The Truckee River opens its doors to the melting snow which offers a nice river for rafting. You can pick up your raft in Tahoe City and cruise down to River Ranch. Its mild enough for the whole family. At River Ranch there is a large outdoor deck with BBQ, outdoor bars, and a great spot to watch the rafters come it. Raft 1 day, bike another. You can access the bike path from the house that will meander along the Truckee River to Truckee. River Ranch is a 1/3 way point. Tahoe City boasts Commons Beach, but some of the best beaches on the Lake are found on the West Shore. Meeks Bay has a beach that will remind you of being in a cove somewhere in Hawaii but with mountains. Pristine, crystal clear blue water, white sand beach, smell of tall pines, views of mountains. Its a wonderful setting for a picnic. Chambers Landing is known for the long pier/dock with bar and restaurant at the end of it. This is where all the great wooden boats eventually stop at for a refreshment. The beach is beautiful here, and the entertainment remember able. Can’t beat the lakefront restaurants. West Shore Cafe has dining on their pier, with large deck, outdoor bars, and incredible food. 3 miles from the house is Sunnyside Resort with outdoor deck, boat rentals, pier and definitely an afternoon libation. You’ll find a multitude of lake front venues in downtown Tahoe City. Lake Tahoe is truly a special place, and this is a special house to enjoy it in.
