About Linda Boelsems

I have lived in this area for 35 years. Since retirement, we have stayed in many vacation rentals in fun recreational areas. My goal was to create a similar experience in my area for my guests to enjoy. I purchased this home and have furnished it as a home that I would not only live in but vacation in.

Linda Boelsems purchased this house in 2012

Why Linda Boelsems chose Colfax

We are in the beautiful Sierra foothills with lakes, hiking trails, snow, deer, turkeys. We are above the fog but below the snow (usually). It just does not get any better than this.

We never wanted to leave!

  • 5 of 5

We never wanted to leave! This was the best vacation! The house is serene, beautiful, immaculate and stocked with all the comforts of home. The owners are so friendly and helpful, it was so nice having them right next-door if we had a question. The neighborhood is nice and quiet and there was so many beautiful places to go and see throughout our stay-within a pretty short distance. I can't wait to go back!

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a more wonderful vacation spot! When our 7 year old grandson toured the house he said "This is my dram house!" an opinion highly influenced by the ping pong and foos ball table I am sure.

The owner could not have been more gracious. We enjoyed swimming at several different beaches on Rollins Lake and then also made a quick drive to Donner Lake for another great beach experience.

I was sad when the vacation was over and we will definitely come again!

We never wanted to leave

  • 5 of 5

We have never used VRBO before and didn't know what to expect. From our first inquiry, the Boelsems were helpful and welcoming. Throughout our stay they went out of their way to make things easy for us. Their kindness is something we will never forget.

The house is beautiful, comfortable, spacious, and equipped with everything you could ever need. Nestled in the foothills of the Sierras and surrounded by the silence of nature, just stepping out the door is a joy. At any given time you may see deer or wild turkey wandering through the propertyor along the lane as you take your walks. They call it “The Treehouse” because the house is on the side of a hill, so the spacious back deck is several feet in the air and facing out on a beautiful grove of tall trees. Even though you are in a one-story house that has a main entrance at ground level, in the living room you feel like you are up in the trees as you look out on them.

We have been here for two and a half months and have loved every minute of our visit. We don't want to leave and can't wait to come back again. Thank you, Linda and Jim.

The house is beautiful, comfortable, spacious, and equipped with everything you could ever need. Nestled in the foothills of the Sierras and surrounded by the silence of nature, just opening the door is a joy. At any given time you may see deer or wild turkey wandering through the property or walking beside you along the lane. They call it “The Treehouse” because the house is on the side of a hill, so the spacious back deck is several feet in the air and facing out onto a beautiful grove of juniper and pine. Even though it is in a one-story house with a main entrance at ground level, in the living room you feel like you are up in the trees as you look out on them. It's peaceful and lovely, and truth be told, we never want to leave.

We have loved every minute of our time here and can't wait to come back again. Thank you, Linda and Jim.

Girls Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Just finished up a wonderful stay at the Tree House. If you enjoy cooking you will love this kitchen. It's fully stocked with every utensil needed. Tons of platters, pots and pans & cutlery. Leave all your spices at home to, it has everything.

The beds in all the rooms where so comfortable & the linens where like being home.

All the board games & outside games are great for kids.

Beautiful lake nearby to go float in!
