My husband and I enjoy being outdoors in the country and getting away to the fresh peaceful mountain air. When we were younger, we enjoyed camping, but as we got older we realized we like the feel of being outdoors with the comfort of a bed! My husband planted the gentleman's vineyard on our property to realize his dream of making wine; like his father did in the old country. We feel like our place is 'our little piece of heaven' and enjoy entertaining friends and family.
Kathleen Tannous purchased this cabin in 2004
We chose this home, not for a vacation rental, but as a mountain retreat for ourselves and our family. We love the area since there is so much to do such as wine tasting, swimming in rivers and lakes, fishing and hiking short trips to Tahoe. Our son snowboards every winter so he and his friends enjoy the closeness of the Ski resorts to get together and have fun. Mostly we have spent our time relaxing and entertaining our friends and family here. We also have a feeling of relaxation and relief when we arrive and cannot wait to return.
What we most enjoy about our property are the beautiful seasons and dining outside on the large deck while enjoying the broad night sky with all the stars in view. The house is very roomy so it allows our large family to be there without feeling crowded--everyone has their space. The property is on 5 acres with 5 vacant acres next door, so this allows for privacy. I love the fact that rarely do we hear road noise and we can sit in my pajamas on the front deck without a care in the world!
Kathleen and Simon,
We are so happy to have discovered your lovely vacation home. Our days were spent water skiing on Sly Park Lake and hiking the Sierra, and the evenings were peaceful and relaxing as we sat on the deck and watched the deer graze in the yard. The house had everything we needed, and the basket of goodies was a nice touch. Pride in ownership is evident throughout the home and property. We'll be back.

The house is very spacious, the kitchen well-stocked, and the dining and living rooms gave us plenty of room to visit and play games. The only thing that should be mentioned is there is no television available downstairs. Some of us thought this was a big plus and some of us thought it was a slight minus.
We greatly enjoyed our stay. The lake is a short drive away and was beautiful and fun even in the middle of winter. We hope to return in summer and spend more time at the cabin.
Our family rented the cabin for a weekend to visit Apple Hill. The cabin over all is very nice, the beds very comfortable and plenty of space to visit and play games. I would definitely rent this cabin again!
Spacious, beautiful setting and perfect for a large family gathering!
Poor communication of access details left us unable to get in."Ah well, one of those things, we'll sort it out when we finally get hold of the owner". But no, for the first time in nearly a decade of using HomeAway we find ourselves placing a negative review as the only comeback we have.
This was a late booking for 3 nights which was paid upfront. The owner confirmed by email & promised to be in contact with access details prior to arrival. With nothing received we prompted her just before we left but got only a contact number.
By chance we also downloaded the new HomeAway app to "find & book your next holiday". It seems this was our downfall! The whole process instantly becomes automated to the app, not that anyone told us!
With no further contact & limited connectivity abroad, we got ourselves to the property using the address. Numerous phone calls, voice messages, email, knocking on neighbours got us nowhere...no worries, we had the app! Using the house wifi from the doorstep we searched but still no success. After 2hrs & the sun going down we gave in.
2 days later the owner finally returned our calls. Apparently the crucial app did indeed have the info we needed! How did we miss it? Maybe poor set up with critical info illogically filed? There were many links & we opened most...the welcome, the check in...in fact all that might be vaguely relevant. But strangely enough we didn't open "need driving directions?"...after all, we were already there!
Naively we thought we'd be able to come to some agreement with the owner & that would be that...the information was badly filed/we were not told where it was/we had not found it. But no, we have lost the tax, service charge & rental fee (she did return the cleaning fee & security deposit). We had to find alternative accommodation & wasted fuel & food bought for our stay. So we are left feeling cheated whilst the owner profits, keeping the full rental fee & losing nothing.
Could we have done more that day? Possibly...but should we have had to? She may argue we blocked another potential booking, but this we doubt as we only booked 2.5wks earlier.
So, fellow traveler, you may choose to book this property based on other reviews. Will she stand by her belief that the fault lies with us alone & leave the app just as it is? Or will she add the access code to a more relevant link or improve her notification of this vital info in other ways? We will watch future reviews with interest...do let us know!!
Loved the place. Kitchen is good size and the deck is a super relaxing place. The community pool was great for the kids and the swimming hole is not too far away. Totally recommend this place. Hope to stay there again sometime.
