Welcome to Harley, an AvantStay home!

Built in 1955, this Squaw Valley home gives guests the unique opportunity to stay at a historic property that housed reporters during the 1960 Olympics. Inside, you'll find eclectic, old school interiors that will transport you to a different place and time: colorful art, patterned wallpaper, and wooden everything. Fun fact– the home's vintage beams once framed the railroad tunnels of Donner Summit! The property is reminiscent of an oversized treehouse with a charming library nook with office space, large windows, and a sprawling patio under the pines. It's conveniently located within walking distance to the ski lifts and village, where you'll find shops, restaurants, and bars for an après-ski drink. Cheers!

Situated in the snowy Sierra Nevada Mountain range straddling the border between California and Nevada, Lake Tahoe offers stunning panoramic scenery and year-round adventure. Visitors flock here especially to ski and snowboard on dramatic slopes that seem to fall into the abyss of the lake's cobalt blue water. Whether you're looking for a day in the mountains or a booze cruise on the lake, you can have it all in Tahoe.

Nearby Attractions: William Kent Beach, Kilner Park (Hiking and Biking), Squaw Valley Ski Resort, Alpine Meadows Ski Area, Pete n' Peters (nightlife), Eagle Falls Trail (Hiking), Lighthouse Spa, Fire Sign Cafe, Inspiration Point Vista (Lookout Point).

As a reminder, we do work with 3rd party vendors to maintain the property, and although we adhere to the strictest CDC guidelines and advise all contractors to wear PPE equipment, we can not always enforce.

Guest access
You'll have access to the main house. There are a few closets that are locked off for owners personal belongings.

Note that there is a caretaker who lives in a small studio apartment below the main house. He has his own private entrance and you generally won't even notice his presence. He's there to assist in the event of emergency and to help manage snow loads on decks during winter months.
