Outstanding house, great location, clean, nice new hot tub, excellent ownership.

House is well-located such that a run to Safeway takes only a few minutes -- and main road / hwy nearby -- yet seems secluded. We skied at Squaw Valley, which was an easy 15-min drive.

The Reno airport is about 30-min away -- at least on the arriving leg; on the departing leg it took over an hour to travel the 32 miles due to snow and inability to see pavement on the highway despite snow plowing.

House has 4+ levels (with the "+" level the garage): top level with kitchen/dining area/living room-TV room/1/2 bath; one floor down with two bedrooms (one for my friend and one for his daughter and his daughter's friend) and a full bath (w two entrances); two floors down with another two bedrooms (small one for me and the large for my two daughters and goddaughter/niece) and a full bath (part of large room; bottom floor large area with ping-pong table and another full bath (we did not use this area, although I did use the bath to avoid the girl's room). All four of these floors have decks (the lower three covered), which are all interconnected.

Critically, everything -- including the bedding and bathrooms -- was clean and maintained.

A Northstar ski-instructor neighbor, Alex, was very nice and removed snow three times from the driveway during our 3-night stay (it snowed several feet!).

Everyone loved the place.

Lovely spacious home that is exceptionally well equipped, including fabulous toys for the kids.

  • 4 of 5

The house easily accommodated our party of six adults and three children. The view from the deck is beautiful and the hot tub was wonderful. It is conveniently located and just a short drive to restaurants, the Kids’ Museum and ski slopes.

Great house for large group!

  • 5 of 5

We’ve now stayed twice on our annual birthday celebration. Three families, each with kids, and everyone sleeps comfortably and has plenty of room to play and relax. Super accessible property to shoot into town or hit the slopes. The decor is beautiful and the kitchen well stocked. We will be back!

Great family cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great multi-family cabin with plenty of room to spread out! Our group of 11 (5 adults and 6 kids) had plenty of sleeping space, especially with the huge game room on the bottom floor. The house was nice and clean upon arrival, and was well-stocked with linens and paper products. Owners were very helpful and provided great advice on using things like the tv and hot tub, as well as restaurant recommendations. Would not hesitate to rent this cabin again!
