Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Heidi,

The stay was great, we loved coming back to your comfortable and spacious house after a full day of skiing at Squaw. My wife and her friend appreciated the availability and selection of the cooking gear.

The house was very kids-friendly, location was excellent too. Thank you for providing us with an opportunity to have a nice Christmas vacation.

Our family and friends spend totally 6 nights in this beautiful vacation house. The property is perfectly located in the center of North Tahoe, minutes drive to Northstar or to the Kings Beach. The house is modern, clean and beautifully decorated. It's roomy to fit our big group of people. This is one of the top properties we rented in the north Tahoe area in our last 15+ years of vacation renting history. Heidi, the owner, was very responsive on email and inquiries. She was so nice working on the contract and honored the 5 night + 1 night free policy even during high seasons, that encouraged us to take the opportunity and enjoyed the stay without any regret! I would recommend this property highly. Thank you Heidi!

Incredible Stay in a Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful house last January and what an amazing experience. First, the location is fantastic. It's right next to Northstar Resort which was incredibly convenient since we love to ski. It's also very close to Kings Beach on Lake Tahoe. The proximity to both skiing and the lake make it a truly ideal location.

Second, the house has every amenity needed for a fantastic vacation. It's a connected home with high speed internet, multiple flat screen TVs, and even a Roku entertainment system! We made good use of the well-equipped kitchen and the grill as well.

And lastly, the owners are extremely accessible and went out of their way to make sure that we had a wonderful stay. I would book this house this again in a heartbeat.

Wonderful Vacation Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This Tahoe home is the perfect size for two families with two master bedroom suites and two additional bedrooms. Our family and friends have been renting this home for a few days in February for the last 5 years. The location is great with a variety of outdoor winter activities, skiing at Northstar, sledding near the house or snowshoeing in the National Forest. Heidi is a wonderful landlord and always makes out stays in her home enjoyable.

Comfortable and Convenient Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

2 adults and 4 grown children shared a wonderful 4 day holiday stay at this open and cheery mountain home. The home was clean and well laid out, if private bedrooms downstairs and an open floor plan upstairs that included a kitchen, dining, living, and family room with no walls but separate enough to have multiple conversations ongoing at the same time.

Location is very a ten minute drive to Northstar downhill skiing, yet also close enough to Royal Gorge for the cross-country skiers. And when tired of home cooked family meals, the five minute drive to Kings Beach restaurants and take-out establishments reinforced the convenient location.

So a great property, and a great location, what really makes this a five star experience is that Heidi was easy to work with and incredibly organized. Most importantly, everything she represented about the house and the rental process truthful and correct.

Thanks Heidi!
