Guestbook comments from the owner

Our senior softball team stayed at Randee's Humble Abode in Carson City for a 3 day weekend and it was absolutely delightful. I was amazed at how clean and "well preserved" this older manufactured home is. We felt as if we had come home from the minute we walked in. We had 8 people in the house, plenty of room, hot water, and all the "necessities" we needed for a great time. Randee was a joy to work with during the arranging and the follow up processes. We will definitely stay here again and I highly recommend this cozy, comfy, charming home.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had a two week reservation. We loved staying there. It was so big and roomy and had all the amenities, with such style.

The Humble Abode is not so humble - it is a pitch perfect late 1960's - early 1970's home. Everything is clean and pristine. Nothing looks old or well-used. Things are so crisp it is like walking into a time machine. We had so much fun noticing all the details as the days went by. Randee really did an amazing job.

The master bathroom has a big 1970-modern tub that is straight out of a Life magazine advertisement (and long before people had to think about water conservation). I got a kick out of just looking at it every time I went into the bathroom.

We had literally every single thing we needed and then some. I can't say enough about the little details.

Baggies for sandwiches? Yep.

Laundry detergent for the washer? Yep, three kinds.

Every kind of dish and cooking utensil you can imagine? Yep.

A genuine 1960's iron (with the cloth-covered cord!) that gets so hot you could use it to make crispy grilled cheese sandwiches (which my grandmother used to do with an iron exactly like that) - yep.

One of my favorite things was The Wall of Towels. One of the bedrooms has a floor-to-ceiling bookshelf-style wall of folded towels for your use. Randee has obviously read The Hitch-hiker's Guide to the Galaxy and knows good advice when she sees it.

One morning an issue came up with the central air - we called Randee and she had it fixed by the afternoon. She even called us to ask if it was okay for the bugman to make his scheduled visit to spray outside and she cheerfully rescheduled when we were a little queasy about it.

The neighborhood is working class with a lot of manufactured homes. We were a little surprised at first but during our entire 2-week stay, it was totally quiet and peaceful and the neighbors were friendly (if you got a glimpse of them). There is a big fenced-in yard, so we could just open the door and let our dogs out to run.

On the corner as you come into the neighborhood is a one-man, outdoor museum that should be on the tourist maps. It is free and is obviously a life-long labor of love. It has so many valuable old Nevada artifacts that I worried about them getting stolen. It is one of those whimsical human things that hide here and there without fanfare and just amaze you when you stumble upon them.

The location is great (15 min. from Lake Tahoe, 30 min. from downtown Reno). We'll stay there again and bring friends.

Back to when we were young.....

  • 5 of 5

Getting older sometimes requires a time out for reflection. As Rick turned 60 while in the 'Humble Abode' was a wonderful and relaxing way to enter into this new phase of life. The home was easy to find, clean and exceptionally equipped with everything I needed for food preperaton. I would say to anyone looking to stay here, stop looking and book it!!! Rick's 60's was coming in like a lion but, thanks to Randee it went out like a lamb. Thank you so much for Rick's birthday cupcakes and what a wonderful birthday card. We are proud to be a part of the 'Humble Abode' family.

Great little place in the snow

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here with our dogs for a few days in the snow and had a great time. The house has everything you need and Randee was very helpful and great to talk to. Carson City is half an hour from Tahoe and Reno, the perfect little spot. We loved the town so much we're thinking about retiring there.

My family had the pleasure of staying at the "Humble Abode" during the Christmas week. It was a last minute plan and surprisingly a very easy process. Randee was a pleasure and always available for any questions we had. We absolutely loved the décor and it was stocked with everything a home should have. We were also pleasantly surprised there was WIFI...a must for my son, whom has Xbox Live! The kitchen was great...everything you need to cook! The beds were very comfortable and the heater worked well, as it did snow while we were there. The car port was great! Overall, it was a flashback to the past and very cozy. We had a very Merry Christmas! We will definitely stay here again. It's so close to Lake Tahoe, Virginia City and Reno. Great location!

I was looking for a comfortable home to share with my friends who have some old age related issues. The Humble Abode was the perfect place! Plenty of parking right next to the ramp up to the door. A open kitchen that was easy to cook in with all the appliances and dishes you will need. Comfortable beds in a quiet neighborhood. The decor made us all feel like we were at our Grandmother's house. It was very clean and cozy inside. The place was just what we all needed. The owner Randee is a dream to work with. I would highly recommend this property.

Really wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

My small family and parents stayed in Carson just recently. With two small children, hotels are not only expensive, but impractical. This home was clean, comfortable, and quiet. Having a play pen, booster seat, and toddler bed available was such a great touch and made our trip much less stressful. Our host was a dream to work with. The details of our plans changed several times and Randee was very patient with us. Will definitely look this listing up again the next time we visit.
