Here I am, owner and manager of this Squaw property, but in the photo I'm standing in the beautiful grounds of an ancient villa in Ravello Italy and the photo was taken some years ago.
I am writing my first book (on my personal travel adventures) and looking for an agent.
France is my favorite country and so I write mostly about art, culture and scenics there.
patricia woeber purchased this house in 2000
We bought the home at squaw because it's the best ski mountain in Northern California. Beginners can go in the tram to the top where there are lovely easy slopes. Intermediates enjoy an amazing selection of terrain all over the mountain. For experts this mountain is heaven.
We enjoy all four seasons here. Spring is beautiful, summer is perfect and there's lots of outdoor activities to do. Fall is beautiful with the aspens turning gold. Many locals, who originally moved here for the ski season, say they find the other seasons just as wonderful as they love mountain biking, hiking, rafting, cycling, and other outdoor activities. Including swmming in Lake Tahoe particularly Sand Harbour beach.
We love all seasons here. Winter for skiing of course. Spring, summer and fall are the most tranquil. We sit on the deck in the shade of our aspens and read novels. Actually, I read novels and rewrite chapters of my book, while my husband reads mysteries and thrillers
We don't do all the activities around the lake that we used to do when the kids were with us--like swimming in the lake (Sand Harbor in Nevada), rafting down the Truckee River, riding horses (rented for trail rides at stable in Squaw's meadow), or hiking down the mountain from High Camp.
We enjoy eating and shopping in the Squaw village, North Shore and Truckee. Take daily walks around Squaw and along the Truckee River from near River Ranch Lodge to Tahoe City. About 6 miles round trip.
The house is so tranquil that spring, summer and fall, it's totally relaxing, although we like walking around the neighborhood and along the paved footpath all the way along the Truckee River to Tahoe City. And dining in the valley. I love it here and stay here more and more.
The house's decor is 'clean' for renters so that no personal stuff clutters the rooms. The house's tranquility makes it an ideal place for reading and writing.
We had such a wonderful time in the house. Because you were so very kind about Sunday night a couple of guys, including the bachelor, were able to enjoy the new snow fall from Sunday at the slopes. We thoroughly enjoys the movies, the sufficiently large kitchen, the hot tub and the many bedrooms. There was plenty of room for everyone and we had a great time.
Again, I want to thank you for the wonderful time,
This house was my winter getaway last ski season and will be again for the upcoming season. The house is cozy and in the perfect location to Squaw. It's my home away from home in the winter. Hit the slopes during the day and come back to the outdoor hot tub or stay in and sit by the fireplace. Plenty of parking, minutes to the Village at Squaw with plenty of restaurants, and overall a great house with a warm comfortable feeling.
We (family of 6) stayed at Patricia's lovely house for 5 nites leading up to Ironman Lake Tahoe. The house was very nice, clean, well furnished and had a great video librbary. The location was also excellent, just a mile (20 min walk) to the village. The communications with her were very clear and helpful.
I would highly recommend her property and we will likely use it again next year if I do the race.
We have stayed in this home 4 times over the Christmas holiday and happily returned each time. The house accommodates our big family and works completely for us - with the open great room and well equipped kitchen. The bedrooms each share a bathroom which is very convenient. The house is always clean and conveniently set up. There is plenty of parking and we especially enjoy being able to walk to Squaw. The owner is very helpful, especially when issues arise, as they do!
Our house is less than a mile from Squaw Valley Village and the ski lifts. Walk for 15 minutes along our quiet road or on bike path along meadow. Or drive for a couple of minutes. Lake Tahoe is a five miles scenic drive along the Truckee River. On the Lake's North Shore Tahoe City restaurants overlook the lake, Swim at one of the lake's beaches and stroll along the waterfront, visit shops and galleries in town. Truckee is an historic old western town with good restaurants and boutiques, is only ten miles away.
Sightseeing beautiful Lake Tahoe, water-skiing kayaking & ferry, rafting on Trukee River, Resort at Squaw Creek has iceskating, spa, & swimming pool, High Camp at 8, 200 elevation has iceskating, swimming pool, tennis courts and restaurants. Mountains, hills, and river paths are great for summer hikes.Hike up Shirley Canyon, or to Five Lakes. A favorite drive is to Kings Beach, a funky authentic old Western town-- along the lake, and many restaurants all along there.
