Perched on top of a pile of huge boulders, The Rockpile feels a bit like being in an upscale treehouse. Up a series of rock pathways interspersed with 49 stairs, the view of the lake, less than 50 yards away, is phenomenal and the house, built in 1935, exudes the charm, serenity and rustic elegance of Tahoe's bygone days. The views and setting are unsurpassed. The place has soul.

You can't beat the premium location in Brockway. You are minutes away from practically everything the area has to offer with popular Speedboat Beach, which is only a 3-minute walk, and larger King's Beach with water-sport equipment rentals only a 3-minute drive. Pristine hiking and biking trails, markets, fine restaurants, and almost all of Tahoe's notable attractions, including the small North Shore casino area, are all within minutes of the property.

The Rockpile has 3 comfortable bedroom areas spanning several levels, each of which is accessed from the outside via its own entrance with no interior staircase. The top floor consists of the kitchen, master bedroom, 1.5 bathrooms (one with a sauna), 3 decks (1 with a hot tub, another with a BBQ), and an inviting living room complete with a large fireplace, 2 sofas (one being a queen sofa sleeper), a dining table, and a wall of windows with a 180-degree view of the lake.

The kitchen, though small, is very efficient and exceptionally well equipped. Enjoy the sunset and dinner on the lakeside deck which affords a sweeping view of the lake to the northwest. The BBQ deck, located outside the kitchen, looks towards the south and east while the back deck, nestled in among the boulders, affords a peek toward the east side of the lake and provides a cozy, very private place to have breakfast with the early morning sun, get out of the late afternoon wind, or to enjoy the hot tub.

The Squirrel's Nest is down one level. This bedroom features 2 Twin beds, a bathroom, and a small closet. Down a few more stairs and you will come to The Dog House, a charming small cabin decorated with dog memorabilia, with a Queen bed, bathroom, and electric fireplace, as well as a microwave oven, coffee pot and electric water kettle so your guests can let you sleep in while they have a cup of coffee on their own private deck.

The Rockpile blends old charm with modern amenities including wireless internet access and a 52" flat screen TV with expanded basic cable and a DVD player (located in the master bedroom). Out the kitchen and one level down from the main floor, there's an office with plenty of counter space, perfect if you need to get a little work done during your stay. A washer and dryer are tucked into this room, as well.

The Rockpile is one of 3 houses at the end of a private road. The owners live full time next door (at the bottom of the stairs) and they and other nearby neighbors ask that there be no loud music or parties at the house which would destroy the quiet and serenity of the area.

Just like most homes in Tahoe, this home does not have AC and is not advertised on the listing. We suggest opening the windows!

Beautiful and unique place for the weekend

by Elena G.

I can't decide what is better- view from the living room or view from the porch. Both are better ??. Location is brilliant - if you have a paddle board or kayak, it is 3 minutes walk to Speedboat beach, probably best place in a Kings beach for kayaking. If you like easy family hiking, it's 45 minutes walk to Fire Overlook. 5 minutes drive to the restaurants and shops of Kings Beach. House is clean and friendly, quite unusual (for example, 2 out of 3 bedrooms are completely separate, like separate small cottages with bathrooms, connected by outside stairs) and this is only make it more charming and special. We will definitely come back- we just love it.

Rock Pile Treehouse...Lake Tahoe Adventure

by Anonymous

Rock pile treehouse was a wonderful place to stay. The house is nestled within the natural structures of large boulders & trees. There are beautiful views of the lake from the main room, patios and atop the boulders. The house has a unique style of the 1930s and tells a story of ?its history. ?????? The kitchen is well equipped. The beach is an easy five minute walk, which gave us many opportunities for short and long visits to the lake. The hot tub is a wonderful place to warm up, with a beautiful view of the lake in the day and the stars at night. ?The owner lives just down the hill and was very kind and welcoming. Grand Welcome, too was thorough and communicative in arranging all the details of our visit?. We definitely recommend this as a wonderful place to stay & experience the wonders of Tahoe.
