DAVE and SUE WRITE, 'I just wanted to let you know how much we loved staying at The Fire Place. The view was absolutely beautiful. Even though Dave's not a fireman's we thought the decor was so neat and creative. It really adds to the condo. We appreciated all of the instructions and little signs throughout the condo, too. You've anticipated any questions that anyone might have. Everything was great; we wouldn't change a thing. Thanks for letting some non-firefighters use and enjoy your vacation home. Sincerely, Sue and Dave.'

Quiet, secluded and private while a short drive away from other venues of entertainment. Around the corner is our favorite sports pub, THE FOX & HOUND (great pizza and beer!) and small convenience store. Reno Airport one hour away and other good skiing areas 30-60 minutes away. DAVID WALLY'S HOT SPRINGS SPA, a five star resort built around natural hotspring pools, steam baths, sauna, message and a fabulous restaurant in Genoa, 20 minutes.

KITCHEN AMENITITES: dishwasher, microwave, crockpot, blender, glassware, dishes, cookware and utensils. Food is served on a kitchen bar or TV trays. A bird feeder right outside the kitchen window lets you watch little and sometimes big critters, first hand. We have seen bears, racoons, squirrels and birds. Bring birdseed and a sense of adventure.

NORA WRITES, 'We enjoyed staying at The Fire Place so much! It's beautiful - just exactly the way it's described on the web-site. I am a travel agent and we've seen many places where that is not the case, so we were pleasantly surprised.'

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: Barbie and Jim Nellesen have owned this cabin since 1991. Jim is retired from a 33 year career as a Fire Captain with the Anaheim Fire Department. We raised our family vacationing in Tahoe and the kids have great memories. We come up twice a year now to spruce up the place. We got the inspiration to create the cabin with fire decor because of Jim's fire career. We sure do enjoy meeting all the wonderful people who come to stay at THE FIRE PLACE. That's the best part.

Why the Owner Chose Stateline:
Barbie says, 'When I saw the view, I told the Captain that this was the place for us.' The views are brreathtaking and they always thrill us no matter how many times we see them. We fall in love with the place every time we come. Watching from our deck is a panorama of seasons, weather, nights, days and a variety of animals. It's really awesome. You actually can feel the tension leaving your body about the 3rd day.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
It's very private and quiet. No one can see into your place from any other place around. It is totally supplied with everything that you will need to be comfortable. The grounds around are very rugged and natural. It's beautiful.
