'Belle Tahoe' is a beautiful, new 2600+ square foot home that combines all the comforts of home with the luxury of a fine hotel. With a spacious floor plan, four bedrooms, three full bathrooms and two common areas, there is plenty of room for you to spread out and enjoy yourselves. Relax on one of the two balconies, or just enjoy the forest views from every room. With no neighbors on two sides, Belle Tahoe really lets you get away from it all.

We're a young family with 3 middle school kids and we love to travel in our family time. In the work world, I'm in high tech, on vacation, I like hiking, kayaking, and splitting wood by hand.
After numerous vacations renting from other people, we were finally able to set up our own house with everything we wanted to have to be able to go ourselves, or with a large group of our family and friends and all stay together. First and foremost, this is a big house with spacious bedrooms so that we can spread out, with both a great room upstairs and family room for the kids downstairs. All of the beds are BIG (queens and kings) with pillowtops and high-end linens. We love that there are three full bathrooms and double water heaters. The granite bathrooms with rainfall showerheads and separate tubs are so relaxing. We've tried to combine the comforts of home with the luxury of a fine hotel.
