I just wanted to write to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at Tapawingo. It was beautiful and far exceed my expectations. We all appreciated the lovely appointments, refurbishments and delightful mountain lodge decor. It was perfect inside and out! We had a couple of good sunny days as well as a day or two of snow storms. We were able to enjoy the skiing at Alpine, Squaw and Northstar, a quiet cozy day in the cabin and some cross country skiing in the woods behind the house. My husband and I are definitely looking forward to renting the cabin out again, preferably on a non-holiday weekend & with only a couple friends so that we can get away from the crowds and relax! I've already recommended Tapawingo to a colleague of mine who is looking for a high end rental this spring.
We tried to keep the cabin clean and tidy during our stay. We did not have any mishaps so I assume that everything was in good shape when the caretaker arrived today. That said, please feel free to give me a call or email if you have any questions.
We fell in love with the location. This cabin has watched my 3 children grow up and now it has become a favorite destination for my grand children. My late husband and I shared many weekends at the cabin, creating many wonderful memories. My hope is that others will walk away, after a stay at this cabin, with memories that will last a lifetime.
There is something about looking out a window and seeing a mother bear and her cubs, that makes your heart skip a beat with wonder and excitement. Sitting quietly in the hot tub, catching snowflakes on your tongue as the steam surrounds you. Hiking through the empty woods for hours and then relaxing in front of a warm fire with a good book. Walking or taking a snow mobile into town, just to reassure myself that I am not the only human being left on earth.
Everything you could ever want or need in one localized area. Summer offers the beauty of Lake Tahoe, while winter gives you the perfect snow. Of course, the excitement of the Casinos is available year round. Whether you are coming for the exciting nightlife, the snow sports, the water sports or just want to get away from it all, just come. It will be a vacation you will not soon forget.
