SUMMER LEASE AVAILABLE - MINIMUM 60 Day Terms
Nestled on the banks of cascading Squaw Creek with forested open space in three directions, Creekview Lodge feels like a remote mountain getaway, entirely removed from the bustle of the nearby resort. Rarely is a home designed as stylishly and comfortably as Creekview Lodge. Influenced by the Asian-inspired architectural style of Greene and Greene, this meticulously handcrafted lodge is widely considered to be the crowning masterpiece of legendary Tahoe home designer/builder Greg Dorland.
The gourmet kitchen includes an oversized refrigerator, two dishwashers, two ovens, 6-burner stove, two sinks and a sprawling island large enough to be a kitchen workstation and still host up to 5 seats. Other family-friendly appointments include double washers and dryers in the laundry room and the large stone mudroom that can fit everyone’s gear. All five bedrooms are large enough for separate seating areas, have attached bathrooms, large closets and are situated to ensure privacy. The middle level hosts a second living space with TV, fireplace and outdoor access to the stone patio with fire pit and hot tub. But perhaps the best thing about Creekview Lodge is the spacious upper level living area. Created with a completely open concept the lounge, wet bar, dining area, kitchen and gaming space are all in one room that feels cozy and spacious at the same time, allowing everyone to be together while engaged in different activities.
Oriented to the southwest, the lodge’s sunny rear windows, decks and patios offer expansive views of all six of the legendary peaks of Squaw Valley. Most prominently, towering pines frame the dramatic great room view of Squaw Peak, Broken Arrow and the Tram Face. The eastern-oriented front decks offer views of several of the Truckee River Canyon’s most prominent crags and peaks including Big Chief, Bullshead, Sawtooth Ridge and Painted Rock. Plus, a trail follows along the creek which provides a short hike in summer and great snowshoeing out the backdoor in winter. The neighboring creek features a swimming/plunging hole right next to the house!

With 3600 skiable acres, 29 chairlifts, and the only funitel in the US, skiing Squaw has earned a place on many a skier’s bucket list. Now under joint ownership with Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley is in year five of a five-year, $70 million renaissance, which has brought new chairlifts, an iconic yoga studio and the world’s first ski-in/ski-out Starbucks to the mountains.
