For large-group travelers, those Lake Tahoe family reunions or holiday gatherings with family and friends, this sunny and spacious remodeled home in Alpine Meadows is the perfect base camp. The 5-bedroom and 4-bathroom light and bright home features a 2-car garage, two master bedrooms, a covered entry (this is really helpful when the powder hits in the winter!), expansive windows that really let the outside in, and top of the line amenities and finishes, from granite counter tops to luxuriously appointed bedrooms.
With several levels, and roomy communal living space, there are many comfortable areas of the home where you can retreat with loved ones or enjoy quiet alone time. In the summer, lounge on the sprawling deck and grill up your favorite warm weather cuisine you are only a short drive from Tahoe City, with a bountiful Farmers Market at Commons Beach. Or in the winter, after a day at Alpine Meadows (just one mile away!), unwind in the hot tub or relax in the downstairs living room, a fun place to watch TV or host a game night!
You will not be hard-pressed for winter activities just minutes from Alpine Meadows downhill and convenient access to the Squaw Valley shuttle, where you can enjoy world-renowned skiing and historic trails. A trip to Lake Tahoe is not complete without a ride to High Camp on the famous Squaw Valley Aerial Tram, with breathtaking views of Squaw Valley. In the winter, take the family ice skating, or roller skating in the warm summer months at High Camp.
When the snow melts at Alpine Sunny Retreat, you will enjoy easy access to Five Lake Trailhead, just 100 feet away! One of the most well-known day hikes in Northern California, this 4.7 mile round trip hike (1,000 foot climb) into the Granite Chief Wilderness ends at a beautiful spot of five pristine lakes. Be sure to pack lunch and enjoy the solitude.
If you are looking to stay close to your base camp at Alpine Sunny Retreat, at the bottom of Alpine Road along the banks of Truckee River sits River Ranch, a fun spot for happy hour or tasty brunch with the family. Pull up a chair on the deck in the summer months and watch the river rafters end their journey downstream, or cozy up in the dining room while the snow falls.
That is if you feel like leaving the Alpine Sunny Retreat at all!
