Sandy Schrader purchased this House in 1994
Why Sandy Schrader chose Twin Peaks
The house is centrally located on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe, close to all.Lake Tahoe is unparalleled to any other destination I've been to in the world. The skiing in the wintertime is suburb, the beaches at the Lake in the summertime is liked being in Hawaii. White sand and crystal blue water. The weather is perfect and conducive to doing anything you want outdoors, year-around..
What makes this House unique
How about walking distance to Alpine Meadows? Thats probably the most unique thing about the house because there isn't many homes on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe that are. When I stay here, if I'm on my computer during the day, I'll take a break, walk to the lifts, ski to front side for lunch, and ski back to my front door. Days I want to drive to lot, homeowners and their guests have access to a private parking lot right across the street from the Sherwood lift. There is also a warming hut by the lift that serves BBQ, hot chocolate, coffee beer, etc and lots of chairs. I like both seasons. The skiing speaks for itself, but in the summertime there are tons on trails to explore around the house. Page Meadows is a popular trail system located a block away. The house is just up from the Lake at Sunnyside Resort which has a great restaurant with huge deck on piers right on the lake. You can spend all day here watching the wooden boats come in for a beverage or dining. You can access the bike path here and ride to River Ranch which is a beautiful ride along the Truckee River. Once you get to River Ranch, you can enjoy another great deck for dining while watching the river rafters come in. Rafting is a fun thing to do also. Tahoe City has lots of restaurants and shops to enjoy. There is always something going on there to add to a weekend. Even though there are tons of things to visit in Lake Tahoe, I totally enjoyed just hanging out in the house and on the deck. You really feel away from it all, but are close to everything. Plus...the views from this house are incredible.

Great 4 Spartan Team
Loved the property. Great for our Spartan team competing at Squaw Valley. The jacuzzi and sauna were an extra bonus for sore muscles. We will rent again.
After returning to cabin after dinner, we discovered that mice had chewed open our bag of bagels. We traced them to under the sofa where the were nesting. Also, there was no internet the entire time we were there no matter what we tried and to get cell service we had to walk down road.
Other than the above, the place is very nice .
It was a squirrel not mice, which has been caught and is now back in the woods where it belongs.
Cell phone service is spotty in all of Lake Tahoe but works with Wi-Fi calling . The router was reset when you departed and now both the internet and cell service work properly.
I'm glad you enjoyed my home and hope to see you again soon!
Nice for a large group of people
Overall this was a nice place to stay for a large group of people. There was plenty of room to gather around the fireplace or on the porch to chat. The property wasn't dirty, but it wasn't quite as clean as we had hoped. Also, it would have been nice if there were some extra trash bags available. We didn't anticipate having to provide trash bags, which made cleaning up before we left a bit difficult. Overall, Sandy was very nice and accommodating. She let us have a late check out, which was lovely, as we were able to all have a nice big breakfast before we hit the road. I'd stay here again when visiting Tahoe.
Thanks for the review David and I'm glad you enjoyed the house.
There were extra trash bags in under the kitchen sink. I provide paper products, soaps, trash bags upon checkin.
My pleasure in giving you a later check out and I'm glad you took full advantage of it.
Comfortable family home
Nice quiet location with beautiful view. About 5 minutes from Sunnyside Resort and 10-15 minutes (depending on traffic) from the Tahoe City Y. Beds were very comfortable and appreciated the quality of the linens. Sporadic cell service but wifi was fine. Would definitely stay again.
The house was perfect for our group. Clean, comfortable beds, great views, close to the bike path. We had a blast.
Beautiful summer getaway
House and amenities were great! Perfect for a group of 12! Would definitely return! :)
Located in one of the most desired neighborhoods on the North Shore, you are walking distance to the back side of Alpine Meadows with privileges, and 10m to the beach by Sunnyside Resort. There is a private parking pass that will allow you to park right at the Sherwood lift, a quad high speed chair, and get on! Alpine Meadows allows the homeowners living in this neighborhood and/or guests to start here without at ticket and ski to the front side to purchase it. And, the homeowners have their own snow grader which purposely leaves enough snow along the roads so you can ski home if you want to leave your group. Don't ski? Enjoy the hut at the lift for morning coffee, lunch, or just watching all the activity on the hill. In the summertime, the cat tracks become a playground for mountain biking and hiking. Endless trails with Lake views and wildflowers will keep you entertained.
The snow melts into Ward Creek which is easily accessed from the house, known for its trout fishing. Tennis? yep...1 homeowner tennis court are here for your use.
Ward Valley is known for its peaceful setting of houses divided by forest land and views that are breathless. Just up from the Lake at Sunnyside Resort, you have total peace at the house, and 3 miles away you're at the Lake with shops, restaurants, nightlife, and an array of activities. Tahoe City is the city to be in on the North Shore. With Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley, and Homewood at your doorstep, you won't be able to ski a run twice. The winter months is a haven for skiing, snow boarding snow snowmobiling. cross county skiing, and with its backdrop the Lake.. you can't beat the experience.
Summer is as good as the winter. The Truckee River opens its doors to the melting snow which offers a nice river for rafting. You can pick up your raft in Tahoe City and cruise down to River Ranch. Its mild enough for the whole family. At River Ranch there is a large outdoor deck with BBQ, outdoor bars, and a great spot to watch the rafters come it. Raft 1 day, bike another. You can access the bike path from the house that will meander along the Truckee River to Truckee. River Ranch is a 1/3 way point.
Tahoe City boasts Commons Beach, but some of the best beaches on the Lake are found on the West Shore. Meeks Bay has a beach that will remind you of being in a cove somewhere in Hawaii but with mountains. Pristine, crystal clear blue water, white sand beach, smell of tall pines, views of mountains. Its a wonderful setting for a picnic. Chambers Landing is known for the long pier/dock with bar and restaurant at the end of it. This is where all the great wooden boats eventually stop at for a refreshment. The beach is beautiful here, and the entertainment remember able. Can't beat the lakefront restaurants. West Shore Cafe has dining on their pier, with large deck, outdoor bars, and incredible food. 3 miles from the house is Sunnyside Resort with outdoor deck, boat rentals, pier and definitely an afternoon libation. You'll find a multitude of lake front venues in downtown Tahoe City.
Lake Tahoe is truly a special place, and this is a special house to enjoy it in.
