Also, I will not rent to anyone unless I have spoken to them. For this reason, and due to system inaccuracies, I do not recommend using the 'book online' option.

If you prefer to use this option anyway, please call first. I find that tenants are much happier to hear details, options, and corrections to online booking info.

About Mike Junemann

I enjoy finding destination properties, and tailoring them to the specific needs of a vacation rental. I try to anticipate anything a vacationer may desire for their trip.

I welcome input, and almost always add to my houses whenever tenants make suggestions.

Mike Junemann purchased this house in 2011

Why Mike Junemann chose Gold Country / High Sierra

Having acreage at rental property is certainly not necessary. However, it has been well liked by many. Although the cultivated yard is of reasonable size for entertaining, tenants have enjoyed the large flattened areas for playing football, frisbee, etc.

What makes this house unique

There is no other way to say it, this property is UNIQUE! There is no other rental property in the greater tahoe are which is this secluded, and still so accessible. (It's less than a mile to hwy 80).

I love how close it is to skiing, and sledding, as well as lakes, and summer activities. Yet, it is less than a half hour from Auburn for shopping, etc.

Huge house with a lot of room!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here twice now and absolutely love it! We do an annual snowboard trip with about 15 people and this house is perfect. Beds for everyone and lots of space. Backyard is huge and fun to go exploring in. Very secluded area but is not far from the main road. Really easy to get on and off the highway. Right off the exit there is a gas station and a pretty well stocked convenience store. We did most of our main shopping in Auburn which isn't far. Enough parking for our 5 SUVs in the driveway.

Kitchen is big enough for multiple people to cook and there is also a built in BBQ in the back.

Can't find a single thing we don't like about this place! And the owner Mike is a super cool guy!

Thanks again Mike! From the Hawaiians haha

Awesome Secluded House!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here during June 2015 with about 15 other friends. The house was absolutely perfect for us! It had plenty of room, was nice and secluded (which for us was necessary because we got a bit roudy!), and had a beautiful outdoor area. I highly recommend this house to anyone with a big group!

I also want to thank Michael for being so friendly and accommodating! Overall a great experience!

Dutch Flat - Great site for Extended Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We just completed a wonderful summer Family Reunion vacation at Hundred Acre

Wood in Dutch Flat.

Kudos to Mike for putting together a wonderful, beautiful, functional and

enjoyable property for us to stay at.

DUTCH FLAT

The property is in the woods, well removed from other homes and people. There is

a rail line close by the property. You could hear trains frequently during the day. This

was not an issue for my group. Dutch Flat is roughly halfway between Sacramento

and Truckee. The home is very easy to find. and access to I-80 is less than 5

minutes away. Truckee, Squaw Valley and Lake Tahoe are 45-75 minutes away

(depending on traffic). Colfax is 15 minutes "down hill" with a reasonable market

and a number of fast food dining options.

We found little to see in Dutch Flat itself, but probably did not give it a fair amount

of exploration. Colfax had more to see. Auburn (15 miles past Colfax) has even

more options.

Bear River Campground is along the Bear River, outside of town. This was our place

to try gold panning. (Day use area, with parking, just past the Campground).

No, we didn't find any nuggets, but the river location itself is very scenic, quiet

and peaceful. Go to Mountain Man Mining in downtown Colfax for panning eqpt.

and directions.

HUNDREAD ACRE WOOD

Five different family groups came together at Dutch Flat, Ages 8 to 80+. And, a

great time was had by all.

Great sleeping arrangements. Just about every bed had a pullout trundle bed

mattress for extra sleeping room. And the living room couches all easily converted

to futon mattresses.

Kitchen arrangements were excellent. Comfortable for two cooks to operate in at a

time. Well stocked. We used the BBQ several times. The Hot Tub was also used

several times, and just sitting outside on a warm summer evening was very nice.

It is obvious that Mike is investing time, money and energy to make Dutch Flat into a

wonderful extended family or group retreat. We know from experience that this is

hard work. Mike gets it, and we are happy to give him, and Dutch Flat our strongest

possible recommendation.

We look forward to planning next year's family reunion. Dutch Flat, and

Hundred Acre Wood, we hope to see you again in Summer 2015!

Family friendly getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great property with abundant room for 12 adults and 10 kids. The kids enjoyed biking around the driveway, the rope swing, hiking around the property. Very relaxing, and Mike was friendly and easy to work with. Highly recommended.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great! Mike was really helpful and always easy to get in contact with. Booking was super easy.

The property was well maintained and clean upon arrival. It was pretty easy to get to and was really close to freeway access. There were other places within 15min to go to. We went to our normal snow spot at Squaw Valley which was an hour away but it was no problem driving there. There were other places for snow play closer, we just choose to go to Squaw.

I would definitely recommend this place to family and friends.

A great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

A nice, semi-secluded area where people can come up to kick back and relax. A nice layout with a large common area where people can just hang out and a large outdoor area as well. Nice for both summer and winter as it is at a high enough elevation to combat hot summers and not past the area where chains are a concern. For winters, there are also multiple fireplaces to keep everyone feeling comfortable. All in all a great place for people who just want to have an extended, laid back party.
