Well-equipped with standard stainless appliances, including a dishwasher, you'll have everything you need for easy meal prep and clean up. Dine together at the large dining table.

Snowshoeing and cross-country skiing are also plentiful throughout the Tahoe area, and you will find snowmobile rentals just 2 miles from the house.
The house boasts a two-car garage which is easily accessible from the street without a long or steep driveway to traverse; however, that means only two cars can be parked during times of snow.
