Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Our spacious 3000 sq foot home sits on 5 acres of a sunny mesa with views of the foothills, Sierra crest, and Carson Valley. Kirkwood, Heavenly, South Lake Tahoe, Grover Hot Springs, and local fishing, bouldering, & snowmobiling spots are all <26 miles drives. Our large great room & kitchen, 4 desk/work spaces, flat front and back lawns, bunk room, comfortable beds/linens make it a great place to relax, play, & work for families & groups. Front & back porches offer great lounging spots as well.

The space
Our home is a comfortable, inviting, and relaxing space with high quality wood, granite, and modern stainless steel appliances throughout the home. We have beds for 10 people total and 10 people maximum only. The great room is huge with a 50"+ wall LCD TV and surround-sound piped throughout the house including the front and back porch. The kitchen is large and inviting with 2 sinks to aid in large meal preparation that serves as a second focal point of the house with an extra small refrigerator and special wine refrigerator for your smaller items.

There is a small desk with a monitor and desk chair in the kitchen. We've added 2 additional interior desks with monitors/keyboards/mice where the kids can work as well. We’ve even converted part of the garage into a rough office space to enable a fourth work space with a standing desk with another monitor and keyboard.

Our house is on a large 5 acre lot with space to stretch out and away from the congestion 26 miles away in South Lake Tahoe. We are 23 miles from Kirkwood Ski Resort, 21 miles from Heavenly Ski Resort's Stagecoach lift, 10 miles from Hope Valley, 9-13 miles from the Markleeville/Grover Hot Springs area, and 13 miles from store supplies shopping in Gardnerville/Minden, NV. Our home is at 5400' elevation so you may feel the elevation a bit as well, especially if you go for a walk on Sunrise Trail.

The home has large front and back yards to lounge around on or have the kids play on. Beautiful views can be had from the couches in the great room, the front and back porch, the dining table, or just lounging on a lazy day in bed.

The MAXIMUM occupancy of the house is 10 people (not including infants.) Exceeding this limit will result in loss of deposit and a negative guest review.

Please note this 4th work space is in the garage so it is more exposed to the elements and potentially little critters at night.

The master bedroom and bathroom suite is huge and separated from the main living and guest bedrooms. One of the guest bedrooms is an en suite bedroom with a renovated bathroom with heated floors. There is a second flat screen TV in the bunk bedroom with extra sitting rooms and benches and chairs in 2 of the bedrooms to make for a relaxing space that can fit lots of people without continuously bumping into each other.

We have lots of infant and kid-friendly items throughout the house to make it seamless and easy to bring your family into our home. The house is also largely automated and energy efficient with solar panels to help supplement the home's electricity and a new furnace and tankless water heater. We have a full size and mini size crib available for guests with infants as well as bassinets, bouncy chairs, high chairs, and single and double strollers so you don't have to lug your big equipment up to the mountains. I may even be able to arrange for you to get some safety fencing available for your use with enough notice.

Where you’ll be

Markleeville, California, United States

Our neighborhood is a small community of 5 acre lots with nice homes and expansive views in all directions. A simple walk around Sunrise trail has wonderful views. Since the home is at about 1 mile of elevation even that simple walk can get your heart pumping a bit. World-class ski resorts, South Lake Tahoe, gambling, fishing, hiking, and more are all within a 26 mile drive from the home.

Our house and land has lots of space to stretch out in and away from the congestion 26 miles away in South Lake Tahoe. We are 23 miles from Kirkwood Ski Resort, 21 miles from Heavenly Ski Resort's Stagecoach lift, and 9-13 miles from the Markleeville/Grover Hot Springs area.

I first traveled to the Eastern Sierra in graduate school on my many hiking trips. On my drive to 395, I always noticed these homes up on the hill above highway 88. I was fortunate to be able to own a home in this location later in life and we love being close enough to visit Lake Tahoe, but in a large home with a large lot and great views and not having to deal with paralyzing snow storms. This is a vacation home so we will interact with you remotely. I've had guests that I've communicated with every day during their stays and guests that I've had only an initial, check-in, and check-out communication, so any level of interaction is ok with me.

During your stay

I can be reached at anytime during your stay usually by cell phone, email, or text message. Our cleaning crews are local to the home as well and may be able to help out in an emergency.

Much of the house is automated so I should be able to get the house to a comfortable temperature for your arrival and minimize the amount of things you need to do on your arrival so you can just relax.

There are Concierge Services in the area as well if you need more active help and recommendations that I can arrange for an extra fee.
