Secluded cozy vacation home, great for large group!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our group of twelve. We skied during the day and came back to a relaxing hot tub and comfy couches. The downstairs beds were superb (memory foam mattress). The large kitchen was nice for cooking group meals, and the living room space was big enough for us all to play board games and hang out. Dave had the place all set up for us when we arrived (heating and everything), and was overall a nice, accommodating, and accessible host.

It was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

A lovely home! The yard is beautiful and the property is just beautiful. We loved that we didn't need to leave and could simply walk down to the river and enjoy with our kiddos. The owners are very friendly and eager to help! We will be returning on our next family get away! Thank you.

Amazing place for family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Much thanks to Dave, he met us at the house and gave a walkthrough as soon as we arrived. The place was perfect for the six adults that stayed (8-10 adults would be just as comfy), plus for more family that showed up to hang our during the day. House had a great living area, kitchen with everything, even a bathroom with a steam shower! The backyard is amazing, was very cold but walking down to the river was really cool. Neighborhood is very quiet, but easy to get to right off the 50 hwy..less than 15 min from casinos...Honestly wish we could have stayed for longer..thanks Dave and Kathy!

Perfect Ski House!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this beautiful house during our ski weekend in the Tahoe area - our group of friends had a wonderful time. There is ample space for socializing together, lots of comfy seating, and the kitchen is well stocked for any cooking, although we kept it simple with mulled wine. The bedrooms are very comfortable, and everyone slept well! We also were able to enjoy the hot tub while it snowed outside - such a lovely experience. Would highly recommend the house to anyone who is looking for a spacious, well-equipped home for a weekend ski trip.

Just a note - the area has no cell phone reception, and the house has limited WiFi connectivity - we LOVED it because it meant we weren't on our phones and instead had lots of great conversations.
