What a week - it could not have been better!!!!

Stayed: August 2011
Our family of ten adults and a well-behaved dog spent the week in August 2011 at this wonderful home. It is exactly as the pictures show -no trick angles or photoshopped pictures!!!
The great room was warm and inviting and the kitchen withits professional level applicances was a joy for all of us as we love to cook and we did plenty of it, including baking a a barbecue one night on the top-rated gas grill.
The home was spacious with four bedrooms and a shower in the master edroom that people wanted to take turns using (along with the radiant-heated bathroom floor in the master suite).
The location is ideal - quiet yet central - equally distant from Tahoe Cuty and the Lake and Truckee, a really nice nearby town. We found that shopping in Truckee was more reasonable and the selection of stores include an huge hardware store that has everything including fishing licenses and fishing equipment. The old section of the town is worth a visit as well. Turn right at the light on Rt 89 and follow the road into the village. Try the JAX Diner - it is a Food Network Stop and worth a visit.
We had a lot of fun in the family room and debated when we going to use the professional style card table but with so much to do. we never got around to it. The 'boys' really enjoyed the ping pong table.
There is much to do in the area and our group sampled a lot of it - fishing, rafting, swimming, a casino, hiking, and even a movie under the stars at Squaw Valley (free and just down the road). The house is a short drive through incredible vistas to Reno where there is always something happening - we lucked up a monster truck show, a roller derby and a demolition derby all for $15 at the Reno Livestock Events Center. There is more to do if you want but the house is also conducive to quiet times to relax. We enjoyed the ability to be together but also to have our own space. We cooked a lot of meals and appreciated the washer and dryer right there in the house as well as the dishwasher.
If you have any questions, the owner and his wife were incredibly responsive with direct and speedy answers. It was a pleasure dealing with them.
Truly, the olny thing we did not like was that we had to leave - it was great.
