Very nice and accommodating. We had a great time and enjoyed the house and area very much. Beautiful area. We had kids and could have used a TV downstairs, but other than that, the home was very spacious and perfect for our needs.
A wonderful getaway destination
This vacation home is not only warm, clean, and fully stocked, but it's set in a gorgeous area. The owner and his property manager make sure everything is ready for your arrival, and just in case anything is missed (which it wasn't) they are just a phone call away. So many trees, so much space to walk, and the tiny town of Graeagle is so cute with good shops, stores, and restaurants. Do not miss the trail around the Mill Pond, Cuccina & Grizzly Grill Restaurants, the Graeagle Grocery Store, and driving around the surrounding towns. A great getaway just 4+ hours from the Bay Area.
Comfortable, fully-furnished mountain home
This was a very comfortable home-base for our family reunion and activities in the Lakes Basin area. We'll definitely come back.
Cozy and Clean, clear air, quiet mountain retreat
When we arrived, the home was spotlessly clean, well stocked with everything we needed: clean towels, paper towels, well-stocked kitchen, toilet paper, soap (bath, laundry & dish). The beds are comfortable, had satellite TV, nice outdoor furniture on the big deck. Lloyd, the owner, provided great customer service. The dogs loved it (wish there was a fenced yard, though...had to leash the dogs each time to take them out) and so did we. Close to town, easy access. We would stay there again. Highly recommended.
We had the best time at this place! Lloyd, the owner, was sweet enough to let us borrow his anti-gravity lounge chairs which we luxuriously sat in every morning on the huge wraparound deck, staring up at the treetops, listening to the wind in the trees and the birds and squirrels living in them. Paul, the caretaker next door, welcomed us with cookies (fabulous, baked right in Graeagle!) and poetry and stories that tickled us and made us laugh. He is a rare combination of local expert, worldly wisdom and a tremendous sense of humor. Lloyd also gave us a tip on stopping at Ikeda's in Auburn to buy their Apple Cinnamon Swirl bread, which he insisted was best when cut to 3/16 of an inch thick and then toasted. Turns out he was precisely right! The house was so comfortable - we felt at home instantly. A short 5 minute walk to the store, or restaurant or the Mill Pond, but in an extremely quiet residential neighborhood where we felt safe and protected and warm. The photos on this page don't do the place justice. The front stairway is a masterpiece of stone, wood and living plants. There is a large, grassy side yard ripe for barbecuing and relaxing. We loved every minute and wish we didn't have jobs and could be there right now! The beds were great, and the kitchen was equipped with every tool imaginable. Writing this makes me feel homesick. I want to go to Graeagle now!
Graeagle Get away
My family of four recently used the house for a weeklong get-away. It worked perfectly for us. When we rent a house for the first time we are never sure what to expect, so we bring everything. We’ll, we didn’t need to. Everything you need is there; paper towels, paper plates, napkins, foils, laundry soap, hand soap, dish soap, etc. The kitchen is well equipped, and everything is clean.
The house is located in a great part of town within a 10 minute walk of town, but removed enough where it is very quite. Not even a barking dog… Our morning walks were very pleasant.
Paul the keeper greeted us with cookies and smile and with living there for the past 24 years knows everything you could possibly want to know about the area.
If you’ve never been to Graeagle, or if you’re looking for an alternative, I'd highly suggest trying this house. It won’t disappoint.
There is one thing to note however. The downstairs 3rd bedroom requires a trip outside to get to it. This should be considered before thinking that you’ll be keeping young children down there. The trip up in the middle of night could be long one for a little one. Our 12 year old daughter had us bring a mattress upstairs to the 2nd bedroom. She wasn’t about to stay down there by herself.
