Meek’s Bay Getaway sits at the cusp of Lake Tahoe’s shorelines. Steps that lead down to a sand-and-rock filled beach are engulfed in towering Pine and Fir trees. At the edge of the water, a long private dock meanders out towards the azure-hued surface. It glitters in the sunlight. Birds hover above, flocking in groups. The sun sparkles. Your eyes close. And it’s pure heaven on earth.
There’s a reason why Lake Tahoe is one of the world’s most sought-after getaways. The steps down to your small piece of heaven on earth offer just one potential experience here at this luxurious cabin. Upstairs, within the walls of your Tahoe vacation rental, you’ll discover a decadent property that spills across 3,300 square feet (306 square meters) of fine resort-quality living.
At the front, the home is flanked by trees that soar dozens of feet into the air. Pine needles disappear into the heavens. The cabin mimics its natural surroundings. Browns and greens and stone dominate the front exterior. At either edge, you get a glimpse off to the horizon. Left and right. Waters sparkle. Mountains loom. And your soul gets a glimpse of the mecca and sun and wind and water that awaits you.
Five bedrooms comfortably house up to 11 guests. As you open the doors into this Tahoe cabin, you’re immediately greeted by the sheer volume of the space. The wall vaults into the great room. Windows fill the expansive space. Abundant light pours in. The lake sparkles in full view before you. Wood beam-covered ceilings soar overhead. Old black-and-white photos of Lake Tahoe surround you.
Off to the corner, windows round the edge. Another window shows you coastline below. Above it, old antique snow shoes hang. Earth’s natural elements fill the space. A coffee table cut from Pine wood sits at the center atop plush cream carpeting. It’s surrounded by faded brown leather love seats, one with an ottoman, and a sofa facing the breathtaking views in the distance.
At the far end, a towering wall is filled with wood beams that stretch to the ceiling. The flat-screen television provides a small distraction during your group’s downtime. A fire crackles in the large stone-covered gas fireplace that rests off towards one of the walls that towers towards the ceiling.
A telescope awaits for you to peer out into the distance and catch the wildlife of Lake Tahoe from this stunning lakefront home. Gaze out at the waters or across the lake towards its mountains and distant shorelines. Step out onto the balcony from sliding glass doors where you can breathe in a spell of crisp fresh mountain-and-lake air as you gaze out onto the picturesque, awe-inspiring scene before you.
On the balcony, a gas grill awaits those outdoor cookouts. An umbrella-covered four-person, glass-topped outdoor dining sets stands at the ready as well. Steps lead down to another balcony that wraps the front exterior. The elevation of 6,223 feet (1,897 meters), coupled with the unique location of Lake Tahoe, embedded into a valley surrounded by mountains, provides a sensation and an air that’s irreplaceable and often inexplicable unless you’re here amidst this beauty.
You stare in bewilderment. An air of relief. A sign that you’ve arrived. That all of your hardwork has paid off. You step back inside, up the landing, and round the bend into the fully-equipped gourmet kitchen. Picture windows seen through cutouts put more of the lake on display. Counters are topped with opaque blue-and-grey ceramic tiles. The wood-beamed ceiling hovers elegantly above custom cabinetry that surrounds the space.
Stainless-steel appliances such as a double fridge, oven, dishwasher and wine storage unit await your every whim and command. A large basin sink and a gas cooktop rests nearby. Whip up your favorite gourmet meals, or just relax at the center island’s two barstools with your morning cup of coffee. The bay-window like cutouts of the kitchen lead the eye straight to the massive windows of the great room. Water can be seen from nearly every angle.
A small breakfast nook sits idly. A hand-carved Pine table with four chairs floats atop a muted red and grey and blue area rug that fills half the kitchen, bringing warmth to the corner. Grab a quick meal here or let the kids hang out at this table in the kitchen. Step back down into the great room where the walls of water await you. Floors are filled with medium-sized Oak planks.
Nearby, a dedicated dining room awaits. A Walnut-stained table rests in an elegant room where leather-backed chairs and a bench can easily accommodate up to 8 guests. Serve up your meals in style in this room. Just steps away, more windows. This time, a sliding glass door leads you out onto another balcony. Pine tree trunks tower alongside of the home stretching further up into the heavens. The view slightly interrupted but never disturbed.
Steps away from that, a game room awaits. Play an exhilarating game of foosball here. An old-fashioned wood-burning fireplace rests atop a stone-encased foundation. Large boulders fashioned into a base that lead up the wall. Another balcony awaits in this room. Large sliding glass doors lead you onto another area where you can witness the spectacle of Mother Nature before you.
Of course, no game room is complete without a wet bar. The giant wet bar takes up nearly an entire corner of the room. 5 bar stools surround it. 2 additional bar stools are off to the side. A large flat-screen television hangs on the wood-beam covered wall. Surrounding it, eclectic frames and artwork indicative of cabin life in the early days of Lake Tahoe.
When you’re ready to call it a night, head upstairs to the top floor where you’ll discover a master suite with a California King bed. The ceiling vaults and pitches overhead. At the far end of the bed, a built-in bench awaits. In the room, a dresser and two night stands elegant await your arrival after a fun-filled day in the sun or a demanding day carving up the nearby slopes.
The master bedroom leads into an en-suite with a large soaker tub. Slip in and turn on the jets. Sink into pure bliss. Next to you, a large picture window. A full expansive view of the blue lake waters engulfs your view. Look out onto the peaceful setting as you rest, relax, unwind and recharge your weary batteries. Steps away, a dual-vanity sink with elegant fixtures awaits. A wall of mirrors reflects the lake.
A shower fills the corner, encased in glass. Carefully hand-laid tiles surround the elegant enclosure. Step in and rinse off from a day spent in the breathtaking outdoors. Plush towels await to dry you off before you whisk yourself away into the thralls of a dreamy night’s sleep.
Other bedrooms are located on this upper level. A captain’s bunk-bed filled room looks out towards angling walls of windows. A flat-screen television floating on a small table briefly interrupts the view, but not enough to matter. Pine needles are seen briefly at the edge of the windows. But more importantly, blue fills the entire frames. Blue from the lakes, the silhouettes of the mountains and the brilliant oftentimes-cloudless skies.
The bunk room is perfect for kids. The bunk bed boasts a log-cabin style framework for an authentic feeling that’s seen throughout this home. A guest bathroom awaits nearby. White ceramic tiles fill the space. A tub and shower combination in the corner.
Nearby, another guest room. This one with a queen bed. Muted mauve covers the walls. Another sliding glass door whisks you towards the outdoor environment. A dresser with a mirror stands by the ready towards the foot of the bed along with another bathroom with a shower just steps away. Peak out through the windows towards the snow-capped mountains in the distance.
Another queen bed fills the fourth guest bedroom. More muted-color paint on the walls. Sliding glass doors leads you out onto another shared balcony space. This bedroom shares a bathroom with the fifth bedroom, which also houses a queen bed. The bathroom has plenty of closet space and boasts a shower.
Back outdoors, as you take the steps down towards the lake, your landing offers private solace. Here, your little piece of the lake awaits. Patio decks with umbrellas are here along with lounge chairs. Spend your days hanging out on the dock or eating a meal lakeside. Lounge in the sun or meander out into the water. Listen to the sounds of your children laughing and playing in one of the world’s most sought-after vacation destinations.
Look back up towards your private cabin. Glimpse it majestically hanging on the hillside. It awaits you in the evening when you’re done with all the activities and festivities. But the fun at the lake is endless. You can spend hours upon hours soaking up the calming surroundings. In the evening, explosive sunsets set the sky ablaze. Crimson reds and oranges and yellows envelop you.
The water glistens as the sun sinks behind the mountains. This is pure bliss. Heaven on earth. Seldom few destinations could beat this location. This cabin on the lake is your slice of that heaven. It’s your retreat. Your ability to gather friends and loved ones in a scenic destination with all the comforts and amenities of a home away from home. Everything is nearby.
All of Lake Tahoe’s activities are easily accessible from this location. Ellis Peak is just minutes away for those looking for wintery fun. Slip down the slopes. Snowboard. Ski. Sled. Anything that floats your proverbial boat. In the summer, you’re at the lake. There’s no better location. Take a scenic bike ride around the lake’s 72-mile circumference. Or, simply head to an event at anytime of the year.
Tahoe is teeming with activities, no matter when you arrive here. With two peak seasons, both in the summer and the winter, you’ll always discover something to do. Shop. Sightsee. Dine. Nearby, casinos await. If you’re interesting in that. Head there to play some slots or craps or blackjack. Or, if nature calls, there are an abundance of hikes and trails nearby.
