Mt Charleston, NV: A Cool One Hour Drive Up the 95

Services for Real Estate Pros with Savvy Home Pix B.1000860.LLC

Mt Charleston Lodge NevadaYesterday as the Las Vegas Valley baked at 107 degrees we decided to take a drive up the mountain for a BBQ lunch. We settled for a picnic spot in between the Mt Charleston lodge and Lee Canyon in the Toiyabe National Forest. The weather is just about always 20-30 degrees cooler than the valley. The elevation was about 9000 feet with a little riparian fall running just feet from the picnic spot amid the large pine trees. I am allergic to them so ACHOO all day!

Area real estate boasts a variety of homes from quaint cottages to gorgeousmt charleston nevada real estate luxury homes nestled snug on the mountain side and surrounded by pine (achoo again!)

This is a little known hideaway for Las Vegas area residents and sometimes tourists.

Summer activities in the area include: campgrounds, picnic areas, extensive hiking trails, biking, etc.

 Winter activities include snow sports! YES, SNOW SPORTS! Snowboarding, skiing and sledding.

Surprisingly: This is a relatively short drive from the LV metropolitan area, anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour and a half depending on where your starting point in the valley is.

In summer it is a nice reprieve from the heat, in the winter it is a white wonderland!

All the Best,
Renee Burrows

very picturesque Renee.Mt Charlestown is gorgeous.There is something in a small resort hideaway which just takes your breath away.I am sure some want to get way from all the excitement of Las Vegas at times, but then, after a while, they miss it. To be able to have both, now, that is a the best.

WOW!  107 degrees.... I guess it is the desert, here in FL 107 with humidity would kill you!

I didn't realize that Vegas was SO close to everything!  I will have to plan more time there when I come there for my conference in October.  California is so beautiful!!!

Renee, you write very well.  I felt like I went on a picnic.  Sneezing aside, it was a pleasant trip.

Seriously though, Mt Charleston looks great!

Renee, I equate Mt Charleston to Lake Las Vegas.  They are awesome places to go but nobody, especially the tourists, know about them.  good Post!
