The place was perfect for the six adults that stayed (8-10 adults would be just as comfy), plus for more family that showed up to hang our during the day. House had a great living area, kitchen with everything, even a bathroom with a steam shower! The backyard is amazing, was very cold but walking down to the river was really cool. Neighborhood is very quiet, but easy to get to right off the 50 hwy..less than 15 min from casinos...Honestly wish we could have stayed for longer..thanks Dave and Kathy!

                                                                    We loved staying at this beautiful house during our ski weekend in the Tahoe area - our group of friends had a wonderful time. There is ample space for socializing together, lots of comfy seating, and the kitchen is well stocked for any cooking, although we kept it simple with mulled wine. The bedrooms are very comfortable, and everyone slept well! We also were able to enjoy the hot tub while it snowed outside - such a lovely experience. Would highly recommend the house to anyone who is looking for a spacious, well-equipped home for a weekend ski trip.

                                                                    Just a note - the area has no cell phone reception, and the house has limited WiFi connectivity - we LOVED it because it meant we weren't on our phones and instead had lots of great conversations.

The home itself is spotlessly clean and well-equipped with everything you need. It is really comfortable with lots of couches and cozy chairs and great for families without decor that is easily broken. The yard is what really sets the house apart with a great deck (hot tub) and tons of lawn area that is perfect mowed all the way down to your own private area by the river. Dave the owner was easy to work with and very attentive when the hot tub stopped working due to a storm. He had it fixed in about 20 minutes. The home is perfectly situated with easy access to South Lake and spots off of Highway 50. It would be great as a winter spot too for access to Kirkwood, Sierra and Hope Valley.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

It had everything we needed and more. This was a vacation for 3 families and the grandkids had a ball including the grown-ups. The 2 1/2 acres is fantastic with trail paths mowed around trees and beautiful foliage and flowers. The kids had a blast riding their bikes there and over the 3 bridges down to the creek. You can sit on the porch swing, BBQ and get wet. Very relaxing! David provided outside games and we had playoff games on horseshoes and badminton. We all had a ball. Then In the evening a relaxing time for adults in the hot tub. The kids didn't quite relax as much:~) David was very friendly and accommodating. As you walk the paths you will see plants and array of flowers that his wife enjoys keeping up. We found a small lake that wasn't crowed within a 10 minute drive that we all went to. Dog friendly too!!

                                                                    I can't think of anything else. You won't be sorry if you vacation there. Thank you David

The house was very clean. The scenery was very beautiful and very peaceful. We spent several hours at the river in the back yard. There is a very nice swimming hole to relax if you can handle the cold water. If I would of stayed here in May, I would of had a friend drive us up the road and we would of floated down back to the house. There is plenty room in the back yard to play outdoor games, we played a lot of corn hole. We made good use of the hot tube. If your looking for peace and quiet and beautiful setting this place is for you.
