Guestbook comments from the owner

The accommodations were great ! Hosts were even better.They went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. It is near hiking trails if you like that sort of thing .I would really recommend the walk to Castle rock. It is also easy to get to Casinos or lake. Very clean, lots of appliances,dishes, cooking utensils. Our relatives from Colorado were delighted with accommodations. Would do it all over again..

A great Tahoe retreat

  • 5 of 5

We rented the home for 2 families plus 3 dogs. Everyone loves it, including the dogs. I don't need to talk about the house, because you can see it on the pictures. I am most impressed by the generosity and hospitality of the owners. Most other vacation homes, no matter how nice they are, you can feel it is just a rental. This one is different. Walt and Terri give you the best. There are no yellow old towels or dented cook ware. Everything is just like the ones we have at home. My wife is very pleased with supplies in the kitchen, There is almost nothing you need to bring from home. It is just like home. We really had a wonderful time.

Weekend Company Ski Trip

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the condition of the place. Plenty of room for a small group of 8 to gather for a team-building weekend. The kitchen is spacious, with plenty of counters and very well stocked with everything you need to prepare gourmet quality meals. It is in a quiet neighborhood and reasonably close to the slopes. The place was perfect for us.

We were very impressed with the property. The pictures from home away don't do it enough justice. Our family thoroughly enjoyed the peace and scenic views from inside the home. We loved that we had our own private area outside; the kids played in the snow for hours. We spent a lot of time cooking during our stay and the accommodations were above expectation. The family has already asked about the next trip at this property!

This property way surpass our expectations!!

This review is long overdue and I am one that usually never writes reviews but I wanted to share my wonderful experience. Upon our arrival to the home Walt and Terri had a lovely gift basket for us. They were in contact with us prior to our arrival and was readily available for questions or concerns. The pictures definitely does not do this house justice. It was an incredibly lovely home furnished with absolutely everything and anything you could think of and all available for your use during your stay. We were also able to use their smoker to grill steaks. The patio and yard was huge. The kids loved sledding outside and being able to run in for hot chocolate afterwards. The scenery through the windows was very serene and relaxing. After a 5 day stay the kids still did not want to leave what the called "our house". I can imagine during the spring and summer the kids can property bike, hike and go to the lake, while the winters they spent in the backyard sledding, ice skating and movies at heavenly village. This is a wonderful place to make wonderful childhood memories for the kids. We're considering making this an annual destination at least once or twice a year and if the snow continues to be as good as its been maybe more if Walt and Terri would have us. Thanks again Walt and Terri for the wonderful experience with our first VRBO rental.

Owner's Response: Toan and his family were the perfect guests. They took great care of our home and treated it like it was their own. We were tickled to hear how much fun the kids had in the snow; it's what we hope for, happy family memories. The house is adjacent to National Forest, so they can hike for miles in the summer and sled in Winter privately. Please come back Toan's Family, we have set out the welcome mat and your house in Tahoe is waiting.
