Beautiful Property!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time ringing in the new year at this property. It's located in a rather new housing development and minutes away from Northstar and downtown Truckee. It's perfect for two families. The property is modern, cozy & tremendously clean with hardwood floors and a well-appointed kitchen. Linens and towels are provided. The kids loved how they can conveniently go sledding in the backyard area. The owner, Gene is wonderful to work with and quick to respond. We would definitely come back!

Beautiful home with great location

  • 5 of 5

Just like the pictures- new, open & bright. The kitchen had everything you'd need & the towels/blankets were exceptionally stocked. The location is great- close to historic downtown and about 5 min to Northstar. We really enjoyed the jacuzzi after a day on the slopes. Being able to bring our fur babies was awesome! It made our trip just that much better. In generall, the whole community was very dog friendly, from around town to the resorts. Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation.

Great location for ski trip

  • 4 of 5

Really nice place, very comfortable, great location.

Drawbacks were that the DVD player in the main room did not work so we couldn't watch movies that we brought, and Direct TV was not connected to the internet which meant we couldn't order movies as an alternative.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your trip, but was sorry to hear the DVD player and TV internet connection were not working for your visit. We will have this resolved quickly. When using VRBO in the future, I would encourage you to contact an owner right away if something is not to your satisfaction so that they may try to resolve any issues for your stay. Take care and we hope to see you again.

Wonerful property

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this property. It was beautifully furnished and equipped and everything was in perfect working order. The owners truly thought of everything when it came to providing for all of your needs while at the home. The kitchen had everything we could have ever needed and excellent instructions were provided for things such as the internet, electronics, etc.

Fantastic Holiday Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our new year’s celebration with friends and family was fantastic. We loved the tasteful furnishings, tons of towels and well supplied kitchen. We didn’t use the grill. Dishwasher seems to crack glasses. Owners were friendly and easy to work with. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality!

Great place and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here a few time and it is always very clean and comfortable when we arrive. The rooms are spacious and the furnishings are top notch.

Our dog loves the grounds and the HUGE field behind the place. Walking distance to restaurants, wine tasting, hiking trails, and bocce! Bike to almost anywhere, including Northstar. After a long day of hiking/biking/skiing (water or snow) it is awesome to come home to BBQ and hop in the large hot tub for a relaxing evening.

They also have private wi-fi if you want to go for the week and can work remotely.

I would highly recommend this place!
