Favorite Things Friday- Lake Tahoe

With the mercury rising here in Lincoln, sitting on a sandy shoreline and a dip in the cool water is starting to sound pretty good. Lucky for us in Lincoln, beautiful Lake Tahoe is only a quick drive up the hill. With plenty of beaches and restaurants to chose from, a day trip to Tahoe is a great way to beat the heat.

Whenever we visit Tahoe, we are sure to stop at the kid’s favorite ice cream shop. Located in Incline Village on the North Shore, Susie Scoops is a must visit for a large assortment of locally made ice creams with a delicious flavor to suit any taste. Make sure to grab one of their homemade dipped waffle cones and enjoy some sun on the patio!

From there, there are always lots of options when it comes to enjoying time by the crystal clear waters of Lake Tahoe. Kings beach is a great option, but it can fill up quickly, so be sure to stake out a spot earlier in the day. Perfect for the family looking for a little more excitement at their day at the beach, Kings beach is a hot spot to rent paddle boards or enjoy parasailing or other activities on the water.

North Tahoe beach is another option and is great because of it’s nearby lots of places to grab a quick bite before heading out and the Safeway across the street. We like to stop by and fill up the cooler before we settle in for some time on the sand.

One of my favorite beaches in Tahoe is Sand Harbor beach. The views here are some of the best in the area, and beautiful rock formations and calm water make for a breathtaking spot to kick back and relax.

After a day in the sun, our favorite restaurant to visit is Rosie’s Cafe in Tahoe City. With lots of options, this local spot for homestyle cooking is sure to have something for everyone. Nothing hits the spot quite like one of their burgers!

One of my favorite things about living in Lincoln is the proximity to so many great places. There’s no need to spend too much time in the car or hop on a plane to get away. If you’re looking to get away there are so many great options for day trips this summer- I’d recommend a visit to Lake Tahoe be one of them!

Location, Location, Location!

With all the new innovations out there, there are so many ways to market your home. Whether it’s the more classic route or online, I try and get the best of both worlds. When it comes to getting your home out there, I’m always looking for the best avenues for maximum exposure as well as targeted marketing. With this in mind, I decided to try something new for some of my listings.
The area around these homes is really something that makes them special, so I jumped at the chance to have some drone videography taken. I thought that this would be a perfect way to not only highlight the home itself, but also the beautiful surrounding areas. For the home at 5181 Monteverde Drive, the rolling hills, scenic walking trails and praised Catta Verdera golf course, not to mention the breathtaking sunsets are major reasons why this is such a gorgeous and desirable area to live. At 2200 South Lakewood Drive, the peaceful and serene setting, nestled among the pine and oak trees makes for the perfect hideaway near the lake in Meadow Vista.

Firefighters and Hockey-Favorite things Friday in Lincoln, CA

 

carter-1Last season I had a chance to play with the Sac Fire hockey team. Obviously, I’m not a firefighter and with my Boy Scout background, I’m probably a little bit better at starting fires than putting them out! Our Firefighters in this area are a great group of hard working guys and they play a good brand of no-nonsense hockey. My son and I enjoy playing with them. One of our goaltenders had his mask painted by an artist in Canada and it is sweet! It shows our California flag on one side, a rendering of his Engine at a large fire that made the front page a few years ago and the Cal Fire and Sac Fire logos on the back. Pretty cool Carter! We are all appreciative of the hard work and risks that they take to keep us safe. Thanks! Being able to play a game I love with my son and these great guys is one of my favorite things.

Snow Days in California

Growing up in Canada, I’ve had my fair share of time in the snow. While I don’t miss shoveling sidewalks or scraping ice off my windshield,  I sometimes miss the activities that come with snow. Luckily, Lincoln is nestled in the perfect location. We are just a short drive from the mountains, so you can go enjoy the white stuff without any of the chores. With the recent snowfall, I wanted to highlight some of my favorite things to do in the mountains not too far from Lincoln during the Winter season.

Boreal Resort is just a little over an hour up the road and has something for everyone. Along with offering frequent deals on lift passes, they also have ski and snowboard lessons with affordable rentals. They also have tubing runs with a moving carpet, and a play area for the kids.

My Son loves to snowboard so this is his go-to place.

There are also many parks in the area perfect for sledding or relaxing in the snow. Soda Springs Resort, Northstar at Tahoe, Donner, Cisco Grove, just to name a few..

We like to go to Cisco Grove and bring along a camp stove and some hot chocolate for a fun afternoon outdoors. If you’re looking for an adventure, permits are also available for snow camping. Have you ever been snow camping? Made snow caves? Now that’s an adventure I highly recommend.

Unfortunately we have had a couple years where we didn’t get much snow in California. This year we are finally seeing some good white stuff, so be sure to get out there and take advantage! IMG_0169

Lincoln, CA is a great place to live!

I love living in Lincoln! We have a great location not far from the Bay Area and even closer to the mountains and Tahoe. Lincoln is growing but still maintains that “small town feel”. Recently, CBS 13 did one of their Road Tour pieces about Lincoln. We are in for some changes downtown. I think the whole project will make our quaint downtown area even more friendly and a good destination for people in our community to enjoy more restaurants and laid back shopping. Take a look at the video and it may answer some questions about what is going to happen in the future:
