Alpine Darling - Alpine Meadows 2 BR + Loft w/ Hot Tub - Pet-friendly Too

Riverfront cabin in Olympic Valley with patio
Looking for that classic Tahoe Cabin, tucked away in the woods, but still convenient to skiing, hiking and biking and just about everything in the Tahoe area? Look no further than Alpine Darling!

The main level features a spacious living area with comfortable leather seating, an over-sized wood fireplace, large flat panel TV, and even a cozy corner perfect for curling up with a good book or for a friendly game of chess. Large windows surround the living and dining area (with seating for 8), all with views of the towering pines and the forestry lands which is just a stones throw from the deck.

A simple but fully-equipped kitchen, was just recently remodeled and features all new dining and cooking-ware, kitchen appliances, and granite counter-tops. It also opens up to the large wraparound deck with a new hot tub all with spectacular views of the surrounding area.

Also on the main level are two very comfortably appointed bedrooms. The king bedroom offers another large flat-screen TV with DVD player, while across the hall the Queen bedroom has a smaller wall mounted TV as well. Both share a full bath. Upstairs, the loft area is designed with kids in mind! Not only can they enjoy their own TV, but the owner has also left behind an Xbox (with video games) and a shelf full of board games too! Looking to sled? The back yard area is perfect with a sloping lot that will entertain the little ones for hours!

Perfectly located on John Scott Trail at the end of a quiet cul de sac, convenient to everything, Alpine Darling is a perfect home from which to relax, after a long day of recreation in the mountains.

Tucked between Truckee and Tahoe City, Alpine Meadows Resort is a picturesque playground for families and off-the-radar thrill-seekers alike. Chalet-style lodges and approachable hospitality mean that the skiing and riding experience always comes first. From easy-riding progression parks to wide-open bowls, Alpine Meadows brings an exciting challenge to any level of skier or snowboarder. And with more than 100 trails spread over 2,400 acres, mountain adventures (and groomed runs) await at every bump, jump and chairlift.

In the summer, Alpine Meadows offers a relaxed and peaceful refuge among sweeping valley views, meandering creeks, and hidden alpine lakes.

The more adventurous can find their fix with some of the best hiking, horseback riding, and epic mountain biking around. When you're ready for a day at the lake or a night out on the town, sandy beaches and the Tahoe City boardwalk are just ten minutes from your door.

5/5 Excellent

Great location and house
This is our 4th time staying this place. Love the trail behind the house. Quiet place because it is end of road. Always best rated!

5/5 Excellent

Lake Tahoe getaway
Comfortable, cozy with spectacular views of mountains. Hiking trails within walking distance ..we enjoyed sitting on large deck for meals.

4/5 Good

Nice cabin with great location
Great location, fabulous neighbors, my only gripe would be that they have an off white carpet throughout the house. When we arrived the carpet was stained and unattractive. The cabin will be much more appealing with laminate floors.

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
Stayed 3 nights in Jul 2020

5/5 Excellent

Perfect in so many ways
Just the right distance from the bustle of Tahoe City, but quick access to anything. Just up the canyon from a couple of restaurants and shops. Dreamy views and lovely quiet nights on the deck with the hot tub. The cabin itself was clean and maintained, but felt like a cabin; just what we were looking for. Cozy and charming, with enough privacy to feel removed and relaxed. Well appointed kitchen had everything we needed, with even some unexpected convenient items. LOVE this place. We will be staying here again. Thank you so much for a lovely experience.
