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."

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."

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: Barbie and Jim Nellesen have owned this cabin since 1991. Jim is a retired Fire Captain from Anaheim Fire Dept. We raised our family vacationing in Tahoe and the kids have great memories. Jim's 33 year fire career inspired us to create the fire house theme. The best part is meeting all you folks and being a part of your good times at The Fire House.

Why the Owner Chose Stateline, NV, USA:
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, days & nights, sunsets & sunrises. It's really awesome. You actually can feel the tension leaving your body by the 3rd day.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Secluded is the word. Away from busy highways, hustle and bustle of downtown, commercial venus. All that is down by the lake and casinos. Real privacy. 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 terrain around is very rugged and natural. The views took our breath away.
