We love Twintop and had a great vacation. The house was charming, and we appreciate the history there. Our only complaint would be that some of the beds were uncomfortable and the kitcen appliances a little dated. The microwave in particular. We also would have appreciated a recycling garbage bin and it would have been helpful to know which "alternative week" was actually recycling day. Pullen was amazing to work with.
Lush, enchanting property with towering pines shading green lawns rolling down to the beach. Plenty of privacy to be found, even with a house full. Big property with a hidden sunken lawn and stone bench, several well placed benches, a deck and patio. Especially loved the peaceful mornings on the front porch with my coffee overlooking the lake. The patio was great for BBQ's, protected from an afternoon breeze, with ping pong and the jacuzzi. The swing was a huge hit with the kids.
Being able to easily walk back and forth to the beach was very convenient. The sandy beach was a welcome treat, certainly more inviting than the usual rocky shoreline. Daily swims out to the float and canoeing were popular activities. Beach toys, rafts, chairs and umbrellas made it easy for us.
The house was original "Old Tahoe", steeped in history with two big beautiful stone fireplaces, knotty pine paneling with beams and high ceilings. Very relaxed and comfortable. The bedrooms were a comfortable size and seemed to be located in different wings of the house which we liked. The kitchen was very well stocked, plenty of everything we needed, even the spice rack was full. A closet full of assorted classic board games was enjoyed in the evenings. The paperback trading library was handy when i finished my book and needed a new one to take to the beach.
Our stay was magical. We will be back!
