Great house

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful house in a perfect location. This is the second time we've rented it. The first time was pre babies, and it was great for a bunch of friends to hang out. The second was with friends and our toddlers and it was equally fantastic. Cindy is a lovely and responsive host.

Beautiful Cabin and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this cabin and our family loves it! It’s a short trip from Tahoe and an amazing cabin to stay in. It has a great wood burning fireplace and the view of the river could not be better. We would suggest this cabin to everyone.

Thank you for making your lovely cabin available during the New Year weekend. Our family really enjoyed our stay. We were pleasantly surprised by the roomy and clean cabin. The balcony overlooking a beautiful river. The cabin was comfortable and well stocked with all the supplies we needed.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time. Property was clean and all the amenities were included. Only downside it lack of WiFi but it was actually nice to disconnect for a few days! We especially enjoyed the sleds under the house! Thank you to the owners for making our stay here so enjoyable. We would definitely stay here again!

Nice cabin but no wifi and phone coverage

  • 4 of 5

I like everything about the cabin except that there are no phone coverage in the area and also no wifi inside the cabin that’s why only give 4 stars.

We had a very enjoyable stay in this beautiful and cozy cabin, perfectly situated amongst the aspens right alongside the Carson River in scenic Hope Valley. It was all we could have hoped for and a great find!
