Prepare to sink into the couch and allow your cares to vanish to the tunes coming from the stereo system, as you contemplate your next move (or lack thereof) to start off this vacation of a lifetime. Perhaps you’ll lose track of time as the light starts to lower through the windows on each side of the glowing fireplace. This house come with ping pong, fire pit, hot tub, grill, roku TV, bikes, fusball, 2 refrigerators, fully stocked kitchen, and peek of the lake from the balcony.

A large apron sink and stainless steel appliances elevate this mountain home’s aesthetic up to one fit for royalty. The breakfast bar seats 3 at the large granite-topped island. A reclaimed wood dining table and chairs offer a match-made setting for a gourmet meal prepared by the chef in your group, or perhaps picked up from one of the many fabulous restaurants in this North Lake Tahoe area. On this main entry level, you’ll find the first of six bedrooms. The wood-trimmed Master Bedroom, with a California King bed, ceiling fan, and elevated ceilings welcomes you to take a respite, and the attached ensuite awaits to comfort you with a walk-in steam shower and separate soaking tub. Out on the deck, below the canopy created by the mature lodgepole pines that surround the home, is a spacious outdoor dining space and ...(see more)propane-powered grill. If you’re not already imagining yourself gathered with family and friends on a warm summer afternoon enjoying chilled drinks and post-hike bites, perhaps what lies below will bring your imagination around. Between the gas-powered fire pit and the bubbling hot tub connected by a path, your whole group will be able to warm up quickly after a day amongst the snowflakes. On the lower level of this home, a living space features a comfortable sectional and flat screen television. Enjoy watching the big game or a classic movie with freshly-popped popcorn and all of your closest friends, then slip on the provided patio shoes to keep your feet feeling fresh as you escape out to the hot tub for a dip. If you’d rather stay warm and cozy inside, the card table in this living space offers yet another thoughtful space to enjoy time together. An adjacent laundry room has double stacked washers and dryers. Five more bedrooms and bathrooms on this lower level offer space for rest and refreshment, and each offers its own tasteful aesthetic to remind you that you’ve chosen a home with the perfect balance of rustic luxury.

One more queen bedroom shares hall bathroom access and offers a view right out into the forest beyond. The bunk room has rustic knotty pine Captain’s bunks sleeping an additional 9 people on the twin-over-full sized beds, plus a game area packed with so much action it’ll be hard to pull the little ones away for a mountain adventure each day. The flat screen tv features a dvd player as well as a Nintendo and Wii gaming system with an assortment of games provided, and the nearby foosball table offers some good old-fashioned low-tech fun.
