|Minimum Stay||2 - 7 nights|
And the backyard... that's a National Forest. At 5340 square feet, Del Norte Manor has a enough room for your entire family, friends, and maybe even some Facebook friends too! Remember that house you dreamed of when you were a kid? You know, the one with the pool table, foosball table, hot tub, and 7 flat screen TVs? That was Del Norte Manor. And it's perfect for entertaining, with dining room seating for up to 14 people and a big deck. But be careful...this house is so impressive you'll need to fight the urge to refer to the rest of your group as "my entourage" when skiing the nearby slopes at Heavenly or gambling the night away at casinos.

Thanks for opening your property to us for our vacation. The home is beautiful and we shared our stay with family and friends. We had great use of the kitchen, hot tub, pool table, foosball and all of the other luxuries. It was a great location for a morning walk and reading on the porch. We also had very short drives to all of the other sites. We plan to come back!
First of all, it's a beautiful home in a great location. We would have given five stars except for a few problems. The biggest disappointment was the "hot" tub. It didn't get very hot at all. Our entire family agreed that there was no way that the temp was 103 (which is what the hot tub said), it felt more like 85. The other big issue (like everyone else) was the driveway. We had 3 SUVs and 1 car. The car barely made it thru the hump, and all SUVs scraped. Hopefully they can fix that soon.
I think that the kitchenware (i.e.- pot holders/oven mitts, cooking utensils) should be replaced. Some of them had melted handles and others were broken. We also wished there were a few more dish towels. Really though these things are so minor. We had a fantastic time with our family there. The house was more than big enough for all 10 of us. It's very comfortable and great for a big family like ours. We had fun playing games around the ottoman in the family room. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone. It was a quick drive to the lake, restaurants, and grocery store.
The warning about the hump in the driveway is not strong enough. We had two SUVs. Both of them could not get into the driveway without scraping. The only way we could get them into the driveway was to bring them in at an angle, so there could be no vehicle in the driveway when the SUVs came in. We had two pickup trucks with raised beds. Those were the only vehicles that could clear the driveway straight in.
We found some problems when we arrived (not enough towels, handles on kitchen cabinets loose, loose window in master bedroom. We notified the agency on Saturday and they were IMMEDIATELY addressed. Kudos to the crew that maintains this property.
The pump on the hot tub, which is quite loud, would come on during the nights. This caused a problem for those sleeping in several of the bedrooms. In addition, the cover for the hot tube comes up opposite the house, obscuring the beautiful view of the forest behind the house.
We would not recommend this place for people with trouble going up and down stairs. All of the bedrooms are on the bottom floor, while the entry is on the floor above (which is split level, which includes more stairs).
Our family loves to play games, and there are quite a few games in the game room. However, for games where one sits around a table, we never found a location where the lighting for the games was sufficient. For example, there is no light directly above the dining room table, so we often had trouble reading game cards.
Having said all of that, we had a wonderful time at this property, and would certainly consider it the next time we have a family reunion.
Great place for family reunion. Very spacious and comfortable. Great kitchen for cooking! Need to fix that driveway bump.
We have held our family get togethers here for the last 3 years. There is plenty of space to spread out, and there are enough bedrooms for everyone. Staying here is easy because the owners have thought of almost everything. We could have used a better fry pan, a pitcher and an iron and ironing board, but these are minor when compared with the overall amenities provided.
It may be a bit pricey during prime season, but having the space for everyone makes it a much more enjoyable trip.
The home was nice, very spacious. There is no AC and we went during a heat wave (slightly disappointing - maybe that was my miss but we had 4 little ones... not the best situation). The house is huge and its hard to find people (haha). The driveway is a beast, don't try parking a regular car there!! (they do mention this in the ad when they send you the confirmation)
The overhead vent above the stove was missing its complete cover (raggedy). We did not have enough hand towels, no dishwasher soap (had to make a special trip to safeway), paper towels were at a minimum. The game room tv did not get a signal. no backyard for the kids to play in.
On a positive, the place fit all 14 of us very well. The amenities were very nice and the master suites were excellent. The proximity to the lake and casinos is a big plus as well.
