This gorgeous three-bedroom cabin sits just steps from U.S. Forest Service Trails, and only a short drive to all the great South Lake Tahoe sites and activities on land and lake!
Rung by a semi-circle of mountain ranges, Mother Nature clearly intended South Lake Tahoe to be a place to bring the skis and the snowboard. Ah, but it also nudges right up against magnificent Lake Tahoe, and the snow in those hills melts in the summer into a green mecca busy with summer sports of all types.
This charming home with its stone facade and log exterior is perhaps as close to an idyllic mountain cabin you could find. After a day on the slopes at Heavenly Resort (about 12 minutes away) or a day on the boat on Lake Tahoe (about 15 minutes) you'll have the perfect place to relax in this home's spacious great room. Kick back under a vaulted ceiling supported by big wooden beams, put your feet up on the ottoman, and switch on the gas fireplace with its grand river rock facade. Pick a VHS or DVD from the library and watch a movie. The big screen 60-inch TV has cable as well.
If you're interested in local events or eateries, hop on the free WiFi to make your weekend plans! The enthusiastic foodies in town are anxious to serve up a diverse selection of dishes catering to any taste. There are more than fifty places to pull up a chair and have a meal, with all the action in South Lake Tahoe just 12 minutes away.
But you don't need to go out to have a great meal! This chalet has a fully equipped kitchen to match just about any culinary skill. Along with the fridge, stove, and oven you'd expect, there's a dishwasher, microwave, a coffee maker and a grinder, so bring some of your favorite beans! You'll find all the pots and pans, dishes, and utensils needed to serve a hungry group of hikers or skiers.
And that's a good thing: Koyukon Cabin Retreat has three bedrooms, and will accommodate up to eight people. The master bedroom has private access to the big rear deck and a re-modeled en-suite bathroom; you'll want to toss a coin for this one! The second bedroom has a queen bed, and the third has a bunk bed with two full-sized beds. Two of the bedrooms have TVs of their own so there won't be any disagreements over whether to watch Leno or Letterman, and there's also another beautifully remodeled bathroom to make morning routines easy.
This home features a wrap-around deck with a patio set and gas grill for your use. You can relax on the deck or gaze at the stars from this cabin after a day of hiking, biking, skiing, sledding, or a lazy day at the lake. The fun begins just outside your door: at the end of the street is a wilderness area with an inviting walking path that leads to the Truckee River.
With its snowy highland climate, South Tahoe is perfect for skiing and winter sports. Skiers and boarders can hit the slopes at seven different places. Heavenly is 12 minutes away. It has 97 runs and 30 lifts on 4,800 acres spread across the California/Nevada border, so, if there's something you enjoy doing in the snow, you're apt to find it here!
Summer, however, brings even more options. Take the lake, for instance. You can float your boat, of course, or get a little wetter by water skiing or taking a stand up paddleboard lesson. And fishing? With visibility to 75 feet, the fish are just waiting for your line. Hikers: There are six trails in the area ranging in difficulty from the great views on the Mount Tallac Trail to the moderate but lengthy trek around Lake Aloha. Golfers can whack the little ball at six different courses around South Lake Tahoe.
Whatever your favorite outdoor activity, chances are you can find it here in South Lake Tahoe! And at the end of each day, return to your cozy chalet for a good night's sleep - and dreams of the next morning's adventures!
