Find your epiphany at South Lake Tahoe

March 26, 2014

View from EpiphanyImagine waking up to this view!

Epiphany has an address. You can find it at 1718 Venice Dr, South Lake Tahoe! The dictionary says Epiphany is a sudden, intuitive perception of or insight into the reality or essential meaning of something, usually initiated by some simple, homely, or commonplace occurrence or experience. You will definitely experience all the homely and cozy comforts offered at 1718 Venice Dr, but there is nothing commonplace about staying at this stunning Tahoe Keys vacation home.

Set amidst a row of picture-perfect single family homes, facing Mount Tallac Mountain Range on one side and waterfront homes on the other, 1718 Venice Dr is perfect for your Tahoe vacation getaway. With its exterior painted in warm tones of brick-red and earthy-green, the house stands out with its sunny welcome.

Stepping inside the front door, the first thing that catches your attention is the magnificent view of Mount Tallac and picturesque reflections of mountain ranges seen through picture-glass windows that span the entire living room. After you’ve lifted your jaw off the ground, you can walk out to the wooden deck to take a closer look at this stunning natural screensaver. I bet you’ll be pinching yourself several times during your stay here, to prove what you’re seeing is not an illusion. We sure did!

The Master bedroomTastefully decorated Master bedroom

With 5 spacious bedrooms and 3.5 baths, this Tahoe Keys vacation home can accommodate up to 14 people and 4 cars. An additional game room, a king-sized chef’s kitchen and an enormous living area compliment the rest of this lovely home. Imagine having 2500+ sq feet of furnished luxury all for yourself, to enjoy with friends and family!

Gorgeous bedroomsOne of the downstairs bedrooms

We stayed in one of the downstairs bedroom which had a patio door that opened directly to the backyard. Our room was furnished with cozy bedding and all the amenities one might need. From inside our bedroom we could see the same picturesque mountain reflections as from the upstairs living room. What a delight to roll up the blinds in the morning and have such a breathtaking scene greet us!

The entire home has been thoughtfully and tastefully furnished, with everything from a comfortable pull-out queen sofa bed in the living area to toasty faux fur lined pillows and comforters in the bedrooms. My favorite spot in the home has to be the tufted leather chaise and ottoman in the living room. Seated here, I could look towards Mount Tallac and its reflections in the snowmelt, as I sipped on my glass of wine. The electric fireplace crackled beside me, keeping me warm and toasty. It’s the perfect spot to curl up with a book – if you’re able to keep your eyes on the book and can resist the dazzling views.

Everything about this vacation home exudes a warm and cozy vibe, punctuated with elegant decor in rich tones of wood, copper and leather. The fully furnished chef’s kitchen is big enough to accommodate an entire family of cooks. All you need is a bagful of groceries to whip up delicious memorable dinners during your stay.

The kitchen is fully equipped and comes with additional amenities like a wine cooler, so you can be sure that everybody will be having a fantastic time. There is a brand new hot tub installed outside in the backyard, which would be perfect for soaking in after a long day out on the ski slopes and after hiking snowshoe trails. What a wonderful way to relax when visiting Tahoe!

Lake TahoeStrolling along the beach at Lake Tahoe

On hearing that this Tahoe Keys vacation home was just a short walk from scenic Pope Beach, we headed out the next morning to explore. A quick stroll along Venice Dr will soon bring you to Pope Beach Road which leads to a sandy stretch on the shores of Lake Tahoe. Who would’ve thought we’d find a beach so far from the ocean? It’s a great way to stretch those legs and get some exercise while taking in the 360 degree views of azure Tahoe. The true meaning of Keep Tahoe Blue hits home at Pope Beach when watching the light dancing on the surface of the lake, channeling a hundred different shades of turquoise and sapphire.

It’s no wonder we felt like we were hiking inside a national park when surrounded by such gorgeous mountains and lakes as blue as Tahoe. We passed a handful of locals who were also out getting their daily exercise along with their energetic dogs. Pope Beach is strewn with plenty of tempting picnic tables and would make a great spot for a picnic lunch on a sunny afternoon. In summer, this is a great place to bring out the beach mats and get into the water for a refreshing swim. After a brisk stroll taking in the beautiful vistas of Lake Tahoe, we headed back to our vacation home. Our wonderful stay was coming to an end, but not before we got our fill once more of the spectacular views from the deck of the house.

After a scrumptious breakfast, it was time to say goodbye. There’s no doubt we will be back! The surreal vision of snow-clad mountains almost within hands reach is forever seared into my brain. Whether you visit in spring, summer, fall or winter, there’s no doubt you will have a wonderful experience staying at Epiphany in South Lake Tahoe. It’s a gorgeous vacation home like no other.
