"Tahoe View"

Lake Tahoe - Nature's Playground

"To obtain the air the angels breathe, you must go to Tahoe . . . the fairest place the whole earth affords." — Mark Twain

Palms and Pines' Tahoe property, "Tahoe View " is located at north Lake Tahoe, California, off Highway 28 at a location that is central to five major ski areas – 15 minutes from Alpine Meadows, 20 minutes from Squaw Valley and 25 minutes from Homewood, NorthStar and Mount Rose ski areas.

Located in Carnelian Heights, nestled among the pines and on a private cul-de-sac, you will enjoy secluded privacy as well as a peek of the lake from this well-appointed respite. This 1,600 square foot, three bedroom, two bath home sports vaulted ceilings and cathedral windows, rustic wood interior, and sky lights which give it an open, yet cozy feeling. The fireplace can be used for heat or you can depend on the forced air heating system to keep you comfortable. Downstairs, there is a large, handy, bonus room which can be used to service or store skis or as an extra sleeping area. "Tahoe Magic" also has a generous deck where you can enjoy a hot tub in privacy.

Hiking and cross-country ski trails begin just two blocks from your front door. There is excellent, close-by dining for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Numerous world-class golf courses pepper the immediate area. The average temperatures range from a low of 20 degrees in the winter to a high of 85 degrees in the summer. With over 300 days of sunshine per year and low humidity, powder ski days and some of the best hiking, mountain biking, water sports and golf are seasonal pleasures that are sure to provide lasting memories. Don't miss the spring and fall which offer many things including wonderful weather and great 2-for-1 dinner specials in many fine, local restaurants.

Personal services such as hair, nail & skin care, and massage are available just minutes away in Tahoe City or Truckee.

The clean air and drinkable tap water with the bluest skies anywhere on earth will clear your mind and ease your soul.
