About John Gadomski

I take great pride of ownership in this house. One day I would like to retire to this home. I love the great outdoors that is available in the Sierra Nevada Mtns. I am an avid down hill skier. I have worked hard to make this a very fun home to rent. I also enjoy fishing during the Summer in Boca and Stampede Reservoirs.

John Gadomski purchased this cabin in 2001

Why John Gadomski chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

Very fun house with lots of fun things to do included. Easy access. Flat driveway. Close to highway 80. Close to shopping. Close to several ski areas and golf courses. Great southern exposure for lots of sun. Professionally cleaned and well maintained. Well stocked kitchen.

Great for 2 families, Bunny slope out back for sledding. Man Cave downstairs with easy access to hot tub.

What makes this cabin unique

Lots of sunshine. Faces due south. Split upstairs for adults and separate downstairs for kids to have fun. Private backyard setting. Well built home with modern windows-- no drafts. Great hydronic heating system. Discounts for repeat renters. Great bunny hill out back for kids to sled on. Sleds are provided. Close to several great golf courses

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi John. Our trip was great and the house was super. The kids loved being able to sled in the backyard, play many of the games you have in the house (backgammon got a lot of action) and of course the ping pong table was popular with all four of us. Our only minor complaint is that the bed in the master is not a king size. Sleeping in it was fine though we have small kids who often come into our bed at night (we have a king at home) and there was no way we could fit them in with us when needed. Not a big deal but as a renter with small kids it would have been nice to have had a larger bed in the master.

Thanks again for renting to us. We all really enjoyed the house, its layout was ideal for hanging out together. The new couch is great.

Take care...

-- Pam

Awesome House, Awesome Location, Awesome Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for our north lake winter getaway. The house was full of activities (ping pong, pool, poker table, foosball table, hot tub) and we had a hard time leaving the house to get to the mountain! Very large upstairs with kitchen while the downstairs had most of the activities and a bar-type area. Plenty of space to spread out.

John was an awesome host as well. We touched base a couple of times on the phone prior to our stay. He broke down the house for us and let me know instructions for leaving, which were very simple.

Highly recommended!

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for families, we had some rain while we were there and nobody noticed because there's so much to do inside the cabin. Great location, close to everything but the backyard is huge. Looking forward to returning.

Very comfortable and spacious cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had two families at John's cabin over the 2015 holiday. Very comfortable and spacious. All linens, towels provided and well stocked kitchen. Low down in Tahoe Donner so quick to town. Tons of fun games for everyone to enjoy. Highly recommend.

Totally Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding place to vacation! All the amenities for a comfortable vacation. Layout of the cabin was perfect. Beautiful location. Very kid friendly. Loved cooking in the kitchen. Family room with wood stove & T.V. where family spent their leisure time while cooking meals in the kitchen was really a nice setting for evening time together. The downstairs has a very fun room with pool table, futon couches, a set of bunk beds and a card table. John (the owner) also had a keg of beer waiting for our arrival. Everything exceeded our expectations. We will definitely vacation here again!!

Car: necessary

Golfers: With no homes in sight and one of the most dramatic par 3s you'll ever play, Coyote Moon Golf Course is a must-play for any visitor to the Lake Tahoe area. The 13th is a 227-yard par 3 with a 200-foot drop. That could be an 8-iron for a good player, but you have to get it right because short is unplayable due to a creek that runs in front of the green, and long usually doesn't work out too well, either. The 13th is hardly the only highlight, though. There are elevated tees everywhere, howling coyotes and a tough finishing stretch, highlighted by the par-4 17th, which plays over a lake and doglegs around the trees.

Old Greenwood Golf Course; Truckee, Calif.

If you want to play a U.S. top-100 course designed by Jack Nicklaus in a spectacular setting, this is it. Originally built as a private club, this premium semi-private facility has the views, conditioning and layout that warrant its $200 green fees. Old Greenwood Golf Course is fairly player friendly as far as Nicklaus layouts go, but tackle it from the maximum yardage of around 7,300 yards and it's all the golf most players can handle.

The Golf Club at Gray's Crossing; Truckee, Calif.

The Golf Club at Gray's Crossing, another semi-private course with impeccable conditioning and views, is Old Greenwood's sister course. Like Old Greenwood, it opened as a private club in 2007. Designed by Jim Hardy and player consultant Peter Jacobsen, this wooded course with Mt. Rose as its backdrop stretches to 7,466 yards from the way backs, but there are six sets of tees for everyone to enjoy. One of the highlights is the driveable par-4 sixth, which plays 304 yards from an elevated tee.

Schaffer's Mill Golf & Lake Club; Truckee, Calif.

If you're in the area, be sure to save Monday for Schaffer's Mill Golf & Lake Club (formerly Timilick) near Truckee. That's because it's a private club only open to the unaccompanied guests on Monday. This beautiful Johnny Miller and John Harbottle III design -- with its superior practice facilities, clubhouse and impeccable conditions -- is really a tale of two golf courses. The outward nine weaves through a meadow, and the back nine showcases a mountain look with elevation change up to 400 feet
