Our well-appointed Private Suite offers inviting accommodations in a secluded, quiet bedroom that is located away from the main area of the home, with a new and luxurious adjoining private bathroom. This is one of two guest rooms in our home.
Rejuvenate your spirit, mind, and body with a relaxing stay in the premium guest suite at our classic mountain home in the quiet neighborhood of Montgomery Estates. Our hillside retreat is the perfect location, adjacent to miles of hiking, mountain biking, and snow shoeing trails, close to Trout Creek, and within miles of Heavenly Ski Resort and Sierra-at-Tahoe. The property is primarily surrounded by California Tahoe Conservancy land, so our home has a fairly private setting. Try out our sledding hill for some childlike playfulness. During the warm summer season, our spacious back deck is a serene area for relaxing. With its southern exposure, it stays sunny and inviting, even in the winter. Summer is also the time to entertain your group with a game of Bocci (lawn bowling) on our secluded lawn area. Or, enjoy a lovely walk in the sanctuary of our gardens, with spring perennial flowers, summer annual flowers, and the beautiful colors of the quaking aspen trees and mountain ash trees in the autumn. Of course, winter has its own appeal and it is breath-taking to see our glistening, snow-covered trees after a fresh snow storm.
This is a 2.5 story home, (with lots of steps) built into a terraced hillside. In 2014, we updated our landscape to incorporate a serpentine pathway to get to the main entrance, for those that wish to avoid the 24 steps to get to the entry. The top floor is the main living area, with an open floor plan, including kitchen, dining room, living room and wet bar area. It has lots of windows, so the views of the surrounding trees make you feel like it's a real get-away! The bedrooms are located on the 2nd floor below the main living area, and the laundry room is accessible through the stairway to the basement. Your private bedroom is large, with lots of drawers for clothing. It has a queen size, pillow-top mattress, poster bed. There is an adjoining full bath, with custom designed shower with bench seat and hand sprayer along with an ample supply of bath towels. Beach towels can be provided upon request.
Our comfortable shared living area has a big screen TV with cable TV service, an original coctail-table PacMan game, and wireless internet service. The bookshelves are full of books,"old-fashioned" board games for adults, and creative toys for children. Your stay will include access to light breakfast buffet in our well-stocked kitchen, and morning coffee. Your private suite also includes one parking space in our driveway. During summer months, more parking is available on the street in our cul-de-sac. Our mellow, loveable St. Bernard dogs will brighten your stay with their cheerful personalities. Rest assured - they do not have access to our guest rooms, and they sleeps in our bedroom at night.
During the ski season, we can arrange for discount lift tickets to several local ski resorts. If you need a lesson, Sharon is a certified ski instructor!
Guests will have access to parking in our driveway, lounge chairs on the deck, hot tub in the evenings, sleds and snowshoes for playing on our hillside, continental breakfast, living room for evening relaxation with big- screen cable TV, DVD player, and PacMan Game (cocktail table style set-up) in the evenings. Washer and dryer are available in laundry room. Please ask first so we can be sure the hot tub is turned off before using the dryer.
We are usually here to welcome our guests to our home and show them the amenities. We are year-round residents of South Lake Tahoe, and this is our home. We can assist you by guiding you to great restaurants, hiking trails, mountain bike trails, ski resorts, ski rental services, lake cruises, bicycle, paddle-board, kayak, or canoe rentals. We sell discounted lift tickets, and ski lessons for Sierra-at-Tahoe Ski Resort, where Sharon works as a ski instructor.
Guests might enjoy knowing about the history of this house. It was built in 1973 by a very artistic owner. Some of the original features of the home, such as stained glass, have been preserved. We purchased the home in 2010 from an actress - Jena Malone - who was born and raised in South Lake Tahoe. Jena purchased the home in trust at age 16, after her big role in the movie "StepMom", and is currently in one of the starring roles in the movie "Catching Fire", a Hunger Games sequel.

My husband, Sam, and I live here at our home year-round and we enjoy meeting a wide variety of delightful people from all around the United States, and the world. All our Air BnB accommodations include a continental breakfast and thus we are a true "bed and breakfast". I have had many careers, including medical technology - the microbiology specialty still fascinates me. For 10 years, Sam and I owned a small fence company, which I handled day-to-day operations and sales. Sam and I met while we both were living in Dallas, although I am originally from Boston and Sam is originally from the San Francisco Bay area. We met while cycling with the Greater Dallas Bicyclists. Shortly after we married, it was determined that we should call California home. We bought this wonderful house, and moved to Lake Tahoe in 2011. We have enjoyed making this house into a home well-suited for our busy lifestyle. When it is not ski season, we are usually working on some creative modifications to our home. I am a certified ski instructor at Sierra-at-Tahoe. As our guest, you can purchase discounted lift tickets directly from me, and I am happy to help our guests with scheduling a personalized private ski lesson. My husband and I are outdoor enthusiasts, enjoying skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, cycling, mountain biking, gardening, and frequent dog walks. As avid cyclists (and Sam is a former road racer), we can provide personalized, professionally-guided cycling tours to our guests. We often spend time on our deck with a glass of wine, in casual conversation with friends, family and neighbors. Our lovable Saint Bernard Dogs are very much a part of our household so if you enjoy the company of friendly furry ones, they will not disappoint you!
