Woodsy ambiance is plentiful in this truly charming three bedroom chalet with open timber beams throughout and a gas fireplace for those chilly Tahoe nights. Situated in the bustling town of South Lake Tahoe, your group will never run out of things to do: from skiing, boating, and hiking to shopping, theater and blackjack at the casino, there are activities for everyone!
The cozy, colorful living room is arranged for ease of conversation. Play one of the many available board games on the rustic wood table or spread out maps and brochures as you decide what to do the next day. A gas fireplace will certainly keep you warm and toasty while solving the evening's murder in a game of Clue. This living room also boasts a 42-inch flat screen TV, cable, DVD and VCR players. You don't even need to bring your own movies because there's a large selection of videos and DVDs to choose from! Just make the popcorn and you're all set for a relaxing evening by the fire.
The adjoining dining room has table seating for six and the galley-style full kitchen contains all the appliances and gadgets required for fixing meals for a hungry crowd. You'll be creating pizzas and whipping up big pots of warming soups in no time. For extra inspiration, the nearby South Lake Tahoe Farmers' Market runs Tuesdays and Fridays, June through mid-October. And on days when you want someone else to do the cooking, begin your day with a plate of biscuits and gravy at The Red Hut Cafe, a homestyle local favorite. It's just a short 15 minute walk from your door.
The downstairs bedroom could easily be defined as the master with its comfortable king-sized bed, soft linens, and 32-inch flat screen TV with DVD player. Grind your own coffee beans in the morning and settle back against the pillows with a steamy cup of joe and a DVD of your favorite TV show. There is also easy access from this room to the recently remodeled full bathroom.
The two upstairs bedrooms are large and roomy, with both a queen and a full-sized bed in one room with a TV/VCR, and a twin and a full-sized bed in the other. Both are decorated in warm, soothing colors and there's even a small balcony upstairs so everyone can start each morning with that fresh, crisp mountain air. Other house amenities include a washer and dryer, plenty of beach chairs, and WiFi. The three bedrooms accommodate up to nine guests, so this is a great option for a large family or a group traveling together.
This chalet sits on a large lot surrounded by trees, and has a sunny outdoor deck and covered gas grill. Enjoy the evening on the deck with your friends and family after a day of mountain biking or hiking. Grill up juicy burgers for everyone, and then play a friendly game of darts.
November through April, world-class skiing is a mere four miles away at Heavenly Mountain Resort. Closer in to the chalet, you can grab one of the house's sleds and find a nearby hill to fly down! In the summer, the area has ample opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, and golf. For a day to remember, make sure you bring your camera for a scenic cruise on Lake Tahoe! There are several lovely beaches to choose from within five miles of the house, so you can have a different backdrop for your suntanning and sand castle building each summer day.
The nightlife in South Lake Tahoe is filled with casinos and entertainment, and all of it is within a mile or two of your front door. Galleries, shopping, and restaurants abound as well. For dinner (or post-dinner drinks), you can stroll just a few blocks and find all kinds of cuisine, including Italian, sushi, Mexican, pizza, and even a vegan cafe.
The Charming Chalet offers a comfortable, homey atmosphere right in the middle of everything for a vacation you won't want to pass up!
