About the owner: My husband and I met 25 years ago in a beautiful, red, 2 story cottage in South Lake Tahoe, very similar to our vacation home. I had flown to Tahoe to attend a friend's birthday and he was one of her roommates. We fell in love that weekend(I know, still hard for me to believe) and were married less than a year later. Ten years ago we were actively looking for a vacation home and I saw the internet listing for our vacation home. I called my husband and told him that it was so similar to the home in which we had met,and although at that time it needed a lot of work, we bought it and it became a labor of love. It has been the center of so many happy family memories. Our children are young adults now and our middle son married young and we have two beautiful granddaughters. They have helped us create another generation of wonderful family adventures. We hope to share our home and help other families create happy memories to last a lifetime.
Why the Owner Chose Camp Richardson: My husband and I fell in love 25 years ago when I was visiting Lake Tahoe...so Tahoe was a romantic choice for our vacation home.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Our home is unique in the 1950's design and architecture. It is different than many of the cabins nearby with its cottage themed decor instead of all wood interior. Interior design is my passion and I am drawn to the eclectic warm and cozy feeling of cheerful colors that seems to take us back to a simple, family based lifestyle. For the knotty pine fan, we still have one room that holds true to that theme. Best of both worlds!
