We are architects in San Francisco and designed and built this house in 2006. Raising two boys in the city, we have always known the importance of getting away to the wonderful outdoors that the Tahoe area has to offer. We started the boys skiing, fishing and hiking when they were 2 years old and they still enjoy the same activities today as college students. With the boys now away at school, we have the opportunity to open our home so that other families can partake in the same enjoyment that we have had over the years.

This property is conveniently and centrally located. About equidistant to Truckee and Lake Tahoe (Tahoe City), and only 1.5 miles to the Squaw Valley entrance, this location is ideal. The house is designed for families or groups and is very spacious. It has been designed in the Tahoe venacular and built majestically into the hillside to capture the view. Top of the line kitchen appliances and large dining room create a great opportunity for family and friends to dine together.

Fantasic Place for Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 5, 2014
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
Our family spent 3 days and nights here last June and absolutely LOVED it. We just booked for the same weekend in June and can't wait for the trip. Here is a breakdown of why we find this Tahoe home to be such a perfect fit for us (and many others):
1. Location: Easy to get to as it sits between Truckee and Tahoe City and falls on a main road, but the long driveway means the home is secluded. The house is nestled back in the trees allowing beautiful views and has all sorts of little tracks and outside areas to explore. We loved to wander across the street to the Truckee River and to walk around the grounds. But then it is essentially 10-15 minutes to all places you might need or want.
2. Family fit: The location certainly set the stage for our wonderful trip, but the house itself really suited us. It is very child friendly - our kids (aged 1 and 3) loved to pile cushions up in the basement and run around, play ping pong, sit at the poker table, explore the patios or run down the hall upstairs.
3. Group fit: We went up with another family (same age kids) and the house really could not have been better for this crew of 8. We slept on one side of the home while the other family took 3 bedrooms at the other end. The closets are so big and have windows that we used both of them for the older kids (who liked the idea of building a "nest"). Early wakers could go down to the lowest level and run around without disturbing others. We could hang out as a big group very easily but also separate into family units if desired.
4. Pet friendly: We have a dog and love to travel with her. She was allowed in the home, which of course made our trip more fun. But the location of the home also means fun for the dog -- she could explore the outside with ease. Lots of walks to be had.
5. General fun: Everything about the home and area made us happy - playground in Tahoe City, taking the tram up at Squaw, biking the trail, taking hikes and dipping out feet in the water. Tahoe is such an amazing place, and this home made it all the better.

I should mention that Kevin in a fantastic renter -- so helpful and accommodating. We will go back every year if we can and could not be more excited about this prospect. Don't miss out on a truly spectacular rental.

Any review of this house would be incomplete if I first didn’t mention the owners. We had some last minute travel complications that threatened to derail our vacation. When I emailed Kevin and explained what was going on he immediately responded and was able to accommodate our needs.

It has been said before, but is worth stating again, pictures do not do this house justice. When you enter the house one is immediately struck by the vaulted ceilings and openness of the family room/kitchen. When you begin to explore the remainder of the house, it is easy to become lost because of the sheer size. My children immediately wanted to play hide and seek (which they played almost all day, every day for the week we were there).

Kevin has done an excellent job of mixing rustic cabin with modern touches. The cabin has the “feel” one would expect in Tahoe, but you are surrounded by modern finishing work (track lighting, stainless steel appliances, etc).

If the house itself weren’t enough, its location to Squaw Valley is second to none. Our purpose of the stay was Ironman Lake Tahoe which was focused in Squaw Valley. We could not have found a better location! A few minute drive into Squaw, a short drive into Truckee for any last minute needs. Simply perfect.

If we decide to do the race again we will definitely be contacting Kevin to stay at his house.

Western States Runner Haven

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 4, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
This property was leased for myself and my crew for about a week at the end of June. It was easy to find as it's on a main thoroughfare situated perfectly to Squaw Valley where the Western States Endurance Run starts and just as convenient to Truckee where there were plenty of grocery stores, eating, etc. It sits across the street from a lovely river and within walking distance from miles of great recreational trails. The driveway curves upward and around but is not difficult to navigate as there are two spots to turn about. Online pictures can be deceiving, but I was pleasantly surprised at the spaciousness of the open floor plan and the bedrooms. The house was immaculate and we had plenty of room for all 6 of us to spread out. I can see how it could easily accommodate twice that many guests. The furnishings were comfortable and the gourmet kitchen was a treat for a foodie like me - well stocked with dishes, utensils, etc. Loved the 6 burner gas stove and the gas grill was a plus. All of the appliances were top notch and there was even filtered water at the sink. Really liked the big glass dining table as we had some great mealtime race strategy sessions there. The laundry room was convenient to all the bedrooms and was large enough us to easily sort and get through that task quickly. I can't say enough about the master bathroom; large, with a wonderful walk in shower, luxurious soaking tub, and radiant heated floor...nice. My 12 year old son was spoiled with the lower floor's bunk bed alcove, pool table, sectional sofa and big screen TV. Everything about this home was perfect. If I'm fortunate enough to run Western States again, I'll be returning to stay here and recommending it to my friends as well.

Perfect Thanksgiving Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 19, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2012
We are so lucky to have found this lovely home in Tahoe, it really made our Thanksgiving family reunion perfect!

First, the house is stunning. It's clearly meticulously cared for and has soaring ceilings, modern kitchen / appliances, large comfy bedrooms and a huge rec. room (including ping pong, card table, lots of board games, etc). The house was also incredibly well stocked. There were loads of dishes, utensils, pots & pans to suit any cooking need. And the things we usually forget to bring like paper towels, coffee filters, spices, olive oil, etc were waiting for us in the pantry. They had sleds in the basement for the perfect little hill in the back yard and a garage fully stocked with firewood (a real benefit instead of having to pay $10 per bundle locally).

The location also cannot be beat. It feels secluded backing up to the national forest but is just a stone's throw from Squaw Valley. It's also smack dab between Truckee and Tahoe City (about 5 miles to each) providing easy access to restaurants, shops, grocery stores, etc.

Finally, the owners could not have been nicer to work with. The instructions provided for the house were simple to understand, all of their communications were prompt and clear and they were even willing to accommodate a last minute change to our reservation without hesitation.

I really can't say enough about this place - we will absolutely be back!

An Awesome Weekend in Tahoe

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 29, 2012
  • Stayed: Aug 2012
Wow, what a great weekend we had at the Dill's home in Tahoe. We joined two other families and rented the house from Thursday through Monday. One of the highlights was that the house is almost exactly in between Tahoe City and Truckee which provides considerable options for shopping and entertainment.

The house is lovely although the layout was a bit confusing. Actually, people getting lost looking for their rooms at bedtime, makes for some pretty amusing stories to take home with you! We found the house a great meeting point for the families in the evening, but during the day, we were all action. The Truckee River is great for a half day float. People are extremely friendly and you can bring your cooler and spend several hours in the cool, clean water. Of course, the lake offers so many water related opportunities, it would be impossible to get bored!

We bar-b-qued outside one day and had a big family-style breakfast each morning. The common areas are open and accomodate 10 to eat at one time. Kevin was super easy to contact and get things set up. Everything is well organized and it makes for a very easy trip!

We will definitely rent again!
