What you will love about this home

Designed by a local architect and completed in 2007, our 2500 sq. ft. vacation home combines the warm, rustic feel of a mountain cabin with modern spaciousness and amenities. High ceilings and large windows with views of the forest give the house a bright and open feel. In addition, the home is heated by a radiant system, so it’s always cozy inside – regardless of season. The large great room downstairs (kitchen, dining, and living area with wood fireplace) opens onto a spacious deck, where you can enjoy brilliant sunshine throughout the day. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything for the gourmet cook, and a large gas BBQ and seating on the deck make for great home cooked meals. There are 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a loft, with 1 queen bedroom & bathroom downstairs, and 3 bedrooms upstairs, including 1 master suite with king bed & large Jacuzzi tub, 1 queen, and a bunk room with 2 bunk beds and a trundle bed (sleeps 6). The upstairs loft is a second living area in the home, with large couch, satellite HDTV, DVD player with surround sound, and stereo. The “squirrel’s nest” is a second level of the loft and is great for reading or sleeping. The upstairs bathroom is designed for shared use, with separate ‘rain” shower, 2 sinks, and separate toilet. Wireless internet is available throughout the house. A private homeowners' association pier and beautiful sandy beach are 3 blocks away, an easy 5 minute walk or 2 minute drive (see picture of beach and pier above). We have beach chairs and beach toys available. Power boats are available to rent two miles away at Meeks Bay. We have three adult bikes available for use (there are miles of bike paths very close by). We also have a paddle board and 2 person kayak.

What you will love about this neighborhood

Located 5 miles north of renowned Emerald Bay, and 5 miles south of Homewood resort, Rubicon Bay is lesser known, but is one of the most beautiful spots in Lake Tahoe. My grandfather built one of the earliest cabins here in 1960, just across the street from our house, and we have been coming to vacation here – summer and winter - for over 40 years. Our neighborhood of mostly 2nd homes is ideal for those who seek the peace & serenity of the lake and mountains, yet you’re only 20-25 minutes from both Tahoe City and South Shore, where you can enjoy great restaurants, shopping, golf, casinos, and various other activities. The hiking and biking on the west shore is outstanding, with other outdoor activities only minutes away (Meeks Bay 4 minutes away; Emerald Bay 6 minutes). For winter skiers, Homewood resort is nearest at 8 minutes drive; Alpine, Squaw Valley, Heavenly and Sierra are each approximately 30 minutes away.
