Welcome to "Stone's Throw"!
This 2,000 square foot home sits on 1/3 acre property right across the street from the beach at the famous Garwoods restaurant and pier and near ski resorts such as Northstar.

All furnishings are new (within 2 years) and professionally designed.

I am a business owner in the East Bay Area. I live with my longtime boyfriend, Dean and our golden retriever, Luke. I purchased this property with my friend Kathy and her daughter, Cassidy. We love the home's location and use it year-round for skiing, "beach"-ing and boating. We enjoy sharing the home with Airbnb guests who also appreciate the jaw-dropping goregous-ness that is Lake Tahoe! We feel SO privileged to be able to own this property and we look forward to many years of hosting!
