Wanna get lucky this Valentine's Day? You could buy your beloved flowers, chocolate, jewelry -- or seal the deal with the Most Romantic Home in America.

As it does every year, Top Ten Real Estate Deals surveyed agents nationwide to find the country's sexiest houses for sale. The 2011 winner: a "romantic oasis of rustic charm" overlooking Lake Tahoe in Incline Village, Nev.

The 9,000-square-foot waterfront chateau has five bedrooms for love-making, five bathrooms for bubble-filled soaks, and a private lakefront beach for watching the sun sink behind the snow-capped Sierra Nevada mountains.

If you lived here, every day could be Valentine's Day, starting with a morning stroll along one of the wildflower-strewn hiking paths, continuing with an afternoon dip in the heated pool with waterfall, and ending with a bottle of Champagne from the temperature-controlled wine cellar.

According to the listing details, the "Castle on Lake Tahoe" is currently on the market for $22.8 million. Look at the bright side: At that price, the diamond you buy instead will seem like a bargain.
