Lake Tahoe, California

Olympic Valley - Jasper River Cottage

Tranquil Craftsman Cottage on Truckee River with Private Hot Tub and Fire Pit

Nestled directly on the Truckee River, surrounded by aspen trees and soaring evergreens, this storybook cabin invites guests to become immersed in the tranquility of nature.

Crafted with a stone facade, beamed ceilings and hardwood floors, the European-style cottage sits on expansive grounds, offering a feeling of seclusion and privacy just minutes from skiing at Palisades Tahoe.

On the main level, an open-concept living and dining area overlooks the river through double glass doors and picture windows. Styled in classic lodge decor with Southwestern accents, the great room invites cozy gatherings or a movie on the large-screen SmartTV. Stretch out on the full-length leather sofa, or curl up on the loveseat or armchair.

A separate sitting area invites lively conversation or a game of cards. Steps away, a hardwood dining table seats up to four guests, with room for two additional guests at the breakfast bar. A country-style kitchen, fully equipped with stainless steel appliances, lies just off the dining room.

During the summer, enjoy meals al fresco on the spacious deck overlooking the river or unwind on one of two chaise loungers. A private hot tub and gas firepit, available year-round for meditative moments by the river, sit on opposite ends of the deck.

Ideal for a family or small group of friends, Jasper River Cottage comfortably sleeps up to four guests between two private bedrooms. Both bedrooms, located on the upper level, have vaulted tongue-and-groove ceilings and charming skylights above the beds:

Primary Bedroom - Upper Level

Glass doors open this spacious room to a private balcony. Guests have twin nightstands with reading lamps and a sink.

Bedroom 2 - Upper Level

Park up to four cars on-site to easily explore Lake Tahoe, from Olympic Valley to downtown Truckee and into Northstar, all just minutes away. In the winter, enjoy access to Palisades Tahoe, Alpine Meadows and Northstar ski areas. In the summer, head to the lake's shore in less than 15 minutes or drive just two minutes to Poke Creek trailhead.

For guests looking to unplug and unwind in the mountains, Jasper River Cottage offers a tranquil location in the heart of Olympic Valley with upscale amenities and access to year-round adventures.
