Excellent home to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the 2 master suites and all around decks off the 1st floors with sitting area and table/dinning area. Everyone had their private space yet the second family room downstairs was plenty big for our 6 kids to watch TV or play the many stocked board games and pool table. The kitchen was well stocked and ready for us to cook or bake, beautiful and elegant furniture, nice view, and very clean. We will be back for sure.

Relaxing and Gorgeous place

  • 5 of 5

It's a huge place. I liked the high ceiling makes the place look bright and airy. Everybody's first thing ever said was WOW! There's enough room for everybody. There's two living room areas, a lot of seating in patio deck areas for people to relax. I also appreciate how well decorated the place is, also they used linens, curtains, mattress, sofa and so forth with exquisite qualities upto their own living standards. I have to mention that, because Some rental properties would put their old furnitures they are not using, and old linens since it's a "rental property". But this place won't disappoint and exceeded my expectations. Another thing they liked is the internet provided and smart tv.

My relatives enjoyed the retreat house and wished we rented it longer. They are spoiled now and this place would be hard to beat. It would be hard to find another place better than this for next year for our yearly family retreat.

We had a family reunion at the house recently. It perfectly accommodated 5 families with small children. We enjoyed using all of the amenities and loved the big kitchen. Highly recommend staying here.

Open and airy

  • 5 of 5

The high ceilings and open floor plan gives an airy feel to the main floor. The house has mostly everything you will need to have a great time, and is nicely decorated. House is newer and “crisp”. Be careful about bed/head count. Some of the beds may count for 2 people so if you have teens or singles, only 1 person per bed may work. I think head count (sleeps 16) is counted as “couch” sleepers also (this caused us a bit of tension, but we worked it out). With that in mind, I would definitely recommend staying here again. We loved it.

They provided (remember this is someone’s house and not a hotel):


-All bedding

-Pots and pans


-Toilet paper and paper towels

-Coffee pot / Keurig (but we couldn’t figure it out)


-“Some” pantry items

-Board games in addition to pool table and shuffle board

You should bring:

-Measuring cups & spoons if you cook

-Seasonings and oils

-Laundry products

-Trash bags


-Clorox wipes

-Paper plates unless you’re ok washing dishes

-Altitude remedies if needed

-Game consoles if applicable i.e., PS4 etc. (hookup was very easy - kids were able to do it).

You need to know:

-You must take all of your trash to a local drop off upon checkout (about 1 mile away or less).

-There is a Kmart, a Vons, a burger joint, a drive through Starbucks and gas station very close - about 1 mile away if needed.

-Snow Summit & Bear Mountain are close and about a 5-10 minute drive.

-One minute after check-out time, your door code will not work so be sure you don’t forget anything.

-Owner is responsive and professional.

-We got our damage deposit back about a week later.

Have fun!!
