About Suzy Palacio

We're a family of 5 with a passion for traveling. We love staying in vacation rentals and do so almost exclusively. Some of our favorite rentals have been on Cape Cod, Cape Ann, Maui, St. Augustine, and in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. A huge part of the fun for me is in the planning of trips--I've been known to look at hundreds of homes before I book. ;-) So fun to see different homes, different styles, different neighborhoods. There is no comparison between staying in a hotel and staying in someone's home. We just love it.

Suzy Palacio purchased this house in 2007

Why Suzy Palacio chose Lamoille

My husband John grew up on a ranch in Lamoille and really wanted our boys to experience the quiet pristine beauty of Lamoille. We bought this home because it's close enough to where we live in Elko that we can get to enjoy it many weekends a year. We always say that we can literally feel our blood pressure drop 10 points when we drop down the last hill into Lamoille. There's a peacefulness about the property that's very hard to describe but unlike any place else for us.

What makes this house unique

We love that our home feels like it's in the "country" but still is very close to great food and two great taverns. You can barhop with no driving required!

No visit would be complete without a drive into Lamoille Canyon, sometimes referred to as the "Nevada Alps" or "Nevada's Yosemite." Just 10 minutes from the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Suzy, What a beautiful and accommodating house!!! It was perfect in every way! Can't wait to stay here again in peaceful Lamoille. Are the deer that graze around the house on the payroll?? Thanks for everything and I'm looking forward to another week's stay!

Good Times

  • 5 of 5

The house is very nice and well-maintained. There was space for all of our family to be together and yet we had individual space too. Kids love to play in the water and the little creek in back of the house was a good place for them. Also lawn to play on while the adults chatted on the patio. The kitchen is well equiped. We appreciated the suggestions for picnics and hikes in the area. We had a great weekend! Suzy & John are good hosts.

Beautiful Home in Park-Like Setting

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent week-long stay in this wonderful home. It was perfectly located for the day hiking we did in the Ruby Mountains. The yard is beautiful - you feel like you're in a secluded park with deer passing through and woodpeckers tapping away. The hosts, Suzy and John, met us on our arrival and gave a quick tour explaining where everything was and answering any questions. The house is equipped with everything you'd ever need for cooking or just relaxing and enjoying a good book. We will definitely be returning for another hiking vacation and a peaceful stay at this perfect home away from home.

Serene Retreat

  • 5 of 5

A well maintained and equipped vacation rental. A perfect location for day hikes in the Ruby Mountains. Three couples shared the home and found the home and grounds a relaxing retreat after a long day of hiking. Suzy, the owner, was very helpful and accommodating. When we come back to the Ruby's this is where we will stay.

Great home in quiet neighborhood. The house was large and accommodated our party of 3-4 perfectly. Fresh flowers, fine mattresses and high end appliances were appreciated. Highly recommend this home for anyone staying in the Elko, Lamoille location.

Enjoyable Long Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfect for a family or small group of friends to gather, relax, and enjoy a peaceful retreat. The home is exactly as listed; Suzy is very accommodating and helpful. There are two nice restaurants right up the street, all the fun in Elko just 25 minutes away; and, the beautiful Ruby Mountains access is mere minutes from this home. This is our second stay with a group of friends and we will definitely return.

Lovely vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home decorated in the western motif and perfect for family or a group of friends. Kitchen has everything you could possibly need for a gourmet meal. Top end appliances. Bedrooms are open but very private. Yard provides a comfortable area to unwind, BBQ and watch the wildlife. This was our third visit to Little Creek Crossing and look forward to our next visit.
