This charming home is a blend of modern and mountain design. It sits within the secure gated Frank Lloyd Wright themed community of Gold Mountain, and Nakoma Golf Resort. The home sits on (3) very wooded acres, surrounded by hundreds of forested acres, all of which provide substantial solitude and privacy. You can see for miles without any highways, roof-tops or power-lines. The 1200 SF deck is built extending into the trees with overlooking vantage points where you can observe many unique species of birds and area wildlife. The home offers a comfortable relaxing place to read, nap, cook, or BBQ. The only lights you’ll see at night are millions of stars. A stay here will totally rejuvenate your soul. It’s beautiful and private, yet close to everything you could want. Your stay can be totally relaxing and pampering lounging on the large deck. Or you can make your stay as exciting and thrilling as you want. You can hike, fish, climb mountains, bike, swim, kayak, golf, boat, dine-out, or get a manicure and massage, all within minutes of this home. The Feather River is a short hike below the home. Reno and Tahoe are within an hour drive. Autumn fall colors a spectacular seasonal attraction.

This home is lovely.
We enjoyed sitting on the d Ca where we played games and enjoyed the sound of the wind whistling through the trees.
People renting this home should know there is no WiFi. You need your own hot spot and service is slow.
Of course the reason to come should be to enjoy the surroundings and all that is available to see.
We took a great day trip up to Smith Peak lookout. It is best to access it near Davis Lake otherwise you are on a dirt road off of 70 that takes over an hour to get to the lookout.
The owners are very responsive to questions even though we had only a few.
The cabin was amazing! It was the perfect mountain retreat for our family!
The cabin exceeded our expectations! It was both cozy and luxurious, nicely stocked with everything we needed. The pictures do not do the cabin justice. The view from the deck was amazing. We spent a lot of time gazing at the stars. The hosts took care of every detail. It was the perfect base for mountain biking, a spa getaway, and lake adventures with our little ones! We will be back!
We had a wonderful stay everything was perfect.We loved sitting on the deck watching the amazing sunsets. It was relaxing and quiet. We loved the decor in the home. We definitely want to rent again. It was the most amazing vacation.
Well appointed and stocked two bedroom cabin with a very large outdoor deck.
The cabin felt very private, secluded and safe. The property is well situated between Graeagle and Portola with golfing near by. The owners provide excellent instructions and everything worked as explained.
Best Hidden Gem
We had the pleasure of spending three nights in this beautiful home. We have rented several VRBO places and I have to say this house is really a hidden gem. You can't ask for more privacy and the views are amazing. Make sure you take the time to star gaze. I don't know that I have ever seen so many stars in the sky. The home is lovely and the pride of ownership stands out. This home is so well appointed with anything you need to make your stay enjoyable. Another plus is the gated community. We left our kayaks on the car in the driveway overnight and didn't have to worry about them being stolen. Something I would never do in an overcrowded area like Tahoe. The owners responded promptly to all emails and were wonderful to work with. The Lakes Basin Recreation Area has so much to offer. Kayaking on Gold Lake and a nice enjoyable swim in Salmon Lake is a must. Skip the Tahoe crowds and enjoy the peace and quiet this house has to offer.
Very nice house with a wonderful deck. Two bedrooms that were perfect for 2 couples!
Went there on a golfing vacation and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Two couples for 4 nights.! First class TV with Direct TV, unfortunately no internet.
Beer lovers, and those in need of a WIFI hot-spot, should know there is a fantastic micro brewery "Brewing Liar" in Blairsden. They have a wonderful facility with several BBQs, picnic tables, corn-hole, rope walk, music events, cross country disk coarse, free WIFI etc.
