Great ranch property located just outside of town. Only 10 minutes from downtown, airport, and casinos. Just a 40 minute drive to Lake Tahoe and ski areas. House is clean with lots of space. The property is secluded and there is plenty of space to enjoy the outdoors. The house is decorated with antiques and classic farm equipment. Les is a great host and lives close by if you need anything.
I came here with my husband and son for a last minute ski vacation where we skied at Mount Rose (about 20 minutes away). The property was very clean and had recently been completely remodeled. I booked it because it had a private hot tub, which started out as a Not Tub, then became a LukeWarm Tub, and after two days of heating finally moved up to Mostly Hot Tub category. The second and final night we were there, we enjoyed it, but it never got really hot where you go "ah!" when you first dip in a toe.
The kitchen was really good with tons of pots and pans, almost everything to cook all your meals (of course bring your own food) and a nice big Raley's down the road. There are items like oil, cooking sprays, seasonings and herbs, a few decently sharp knives and a few dull ones, lots of cooking utensils, and a good range (electric). Though lots of good cooking pots and baking sheets, the Teflon coated frying pans were rickety and scratched at the time of this review. But they still worked and we made do with them.
The loft upstairs with the bunk bed will sleep two adults, or 3 little kids, and we found a cot in the closet up there for another person. The bathrooms were very clean and beautiful. The master bedroom downstairs was small and dark and the bed was a little hard, but I am used to my princess bed at home so I'm sure most people would think it's okay. Overall I really liked this place, but though responsive, the management company was a little slacking. For example, we wanted to turn on the gas fireplace and the remote didn't work. We called the management company and they sent out someone to show us how to open the grate below and turn it on manually. We asked the guy if the grill is working, and he said it was, but we stupidly didn't check it. When we went to use it that night to grill our steaks, it was out of gas. One other issue that bothered me a little was the lighting in the unit. The kitchen didn't have enough lighting installed (not the management's fault), so it was a little dark for cooking, especially over the stove in that the light bulbs in the microwave above the stove were burned out (the management's fault). The bathrooms were a little dark too with burned out light bulbs and not enough light fixtures. For the management or the owner, I would recommend they leave instructions on how to use all the devices, such as the hot tub, remote controls for the TV and music, and fireplace. But overall a decent unit.
