Cozy Creekside Gem w/ Sauna & Gorgeous Forest View - 0.5 Mile to Lift, 2 Dogs OK

The epitome of cozy-yet-convenient Lake Tahoe living, this atmospheric home in the woods of Tahoe City enjoys an unbeatable setting and location. You'll be right alongside a seasonal, waterfall-like creek, with just half a mile between you and the Sherwood Express lift on the backside of Alpine Meadows.

This home is located in a quiet and private woodland neighborhood, just down the road from the ski lift. There are excellent hiking trails to be found at the back of the property, as well as a seasonal creek running by that can be clearly heard between spring and fall.

As you step inside, you'll be greeted by a living space on multiple levels, with wonderful views of the woods from every window and cozy sitting areas around every turn. Descend the stairs and come into the open kitchen, dining, and living area - an incredibly inviting place to relax after a day spent hiking or skiing. There's a sitting area with a sectional sofa, a wall-mounted flatscreen TV, and a wood-burning fireplace, as well as a dining room table where you can share meals and play games with an unobstructed view of the trees. The kitchen enjoys the same view, as well as stainless steel appliances and bar seats for four.

Beyond the glass door is a beautiful entertaining deck, where you can sip your morning coffee as birds come to feed, barbecue on the gas grill beneath LED string lights, and take in the sights of the forest and the sounds of the creek. At night, you'll find the bedrooms perfectly arranged for privacy. There's one bedroom with an en suite bathroom on its own lower level and another bedroom with an en suite bathroom on the middle level. A third sleeping space is just up the stairs, in an open, loft-style room. There's even a private in-home sauna to fully relax you before bed.

Three of us had a wonderful time at this clean, comfortable and well stocked cabin. It is located in a quite neighborhood with plenty of places to hike/walk. Would recommend this home.
