Completed in 2020, this home features endless unique components, such as a hanging staircase made out of forged steel, and the use of reclaimed wood from the original Tahoe Tavern Pier that was reworked for multiple pieces throughout this spectacular home. The 20-foot stone, floor-to-ceiling, double-sided fireplace centered in the great room is the heart for family gatherings and celebrations.

The main home has five bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, and a 1,400-square-foot deck with a covered patio and wood-burning fireplace. The guest house is a fully detached one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit with four additional built-in bunk beds to accommodate both friends and family.

The radiant heat, air conditioning units, air purifying system, elevator, and heated stairs and driveway are the finishing touches to ensure life at Cherry Street is as effortless as it gets.

As a member of Tahoe Swiss Village’s homeowner’s association, you can enjoy the use of two buoys, two piers, and a private beach located just across the street. This custom home was initially envisioned as a mountain lodge with an industrial feel, and the dedicated group of minds behind it brought this vision to life. It was designed, engineered, and built by local teams who have a deep affinity for this area and worked together to seamlessly integrate the intimate characteristics of the home with the nature that surrounds it.

BEST LAKE TAHOE SKIING: WHAT RESORT IS RIGHT FOR YOU

Play, Stay & Enjoy Lake Tahoe this Winter

Whether your getting out on the slopes for a short weekend getaway or a day trip, Lake Tahoe is famed for our expansive selection of downhill ski resorts boasting a variety of terrain, from some gentle broad slopes, some hilly hills and forested slopes or cross country. If you love the outdoors and are a fan of winter’s snow and cold, nothing beats skiing in Lake Tahoe. We have provided our favorite insider’s tips below to help you choose where to ski this winter.

Best Lake Views

Homewood Mountain Resort: Located on Tahoe’s magical West Shore, Homewood is a laid-back mountain that is known for its deep powder, well-spaced trees, and panoramic views of Lake Tahoe. With a mix of gentle beginner slopes to more intermediate and advanced runs, there’s something for everyone at Homewood. It’s certainly a hidden gem, not only for its lake views, but also its secret powder stashes on a snow day.

Diamond Peak: This family-friendly resort in Incline Village boasts world-class snowmaking and grooming, fun events for the whole family, and comprehensive lesson programs. Drink in dramatic views of Lake Tahoe from the sun deck of the Snowflake Lodge. Diamond Peak’s mid-mountain bar and eatery.

Plenty of Beginner Terrain

Boreal: Take 3, Ride Free at this small mountain with a big attitude on Donner Summit. When you purchase three lessons, you get a free season’s pass. Boreal is the only mountain in Tahoe/Truckee that offers night skiing. The onsite Woodward Indoor Park offers 33,000 square feet of ramps, foam pits, and trampolines; perfect for honing those ski and snowboard skills out of the elements.

Donner Ski Ranch: This historic mountain is family-owned and operated, and boasts some great terrain as well as affordable rates and a variety of lesson options. First time bringing the little ones out to ski? Take advantage of their $15 magic carpet pass with a $15 equipment rental to get the kiddos used to the sport.

Tahoe Donner Downhill Ski Resort: Tahoe Donner knows families. From affordable beginner packages to a helpful staff, Tahoe Donner knows how to make learning to ski and ride a family-friendly experience. It’s known as the best place to begin, with impeccable grooming, wide open slopes, and great beginner programs. Also, onsite are a number of eateries, weekly events, and a snow play area.

Advanced Terrain

Northstar California: Fun off-piste terrain, world-class terrain parks, and wide open groomers make Northstar a great destination for all levels of skiers and riders. The bustling village offers plenty of apres-ski events and specials – you may never want to leave!

Palisades Tahoe: Host to the 1960 Olympics, Palisades Tahoe is renowned for its varied terrain. Once two mountains, now merged, the resort offers a combined 6,000 acres of terrain. From wide-open bowls in the side-country to inbound cliffs and technical tree runs, advanced skiers (beginners and intermediate, too!) will love exploring this resort any day.

Sugar Bowl Ski Resort: Sugar Bowl is another family-owned and operated ski resort located on Donner Summit. Its high elevation means huge amounts of snowfall, and the uncrowded slopes and short lift lines make it a local’s favorite. The terrain varies from beginner to advanced. Intermediate and advanced skiers and riders will enjoy 1,650 acres of wide-open bowls, long groomers, and inbound cliffs and features that make this mountain unique.

Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe: Experience beautiful Lake Tahoe views, tons of powder, and over 1,200 acres of 70% intermediate-to-advanced terrain at Mt. Rose Tahoe. The base elevation of this mountain, which is conveniently located between Incline Village and Reno, is 8,250 ft. – the highest in Tahoe. High elevations means good snow in Tahoe, and Mt. Rose is fun for powder-hounds and groomer-heroes alike.
