Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Large three bedroom, two bathroom vacation getaway in park-like setting on an acre of land surrounded by 18 Oak trees. Includes game room with ping pong table and pinball machine.

Our home has a fully equipped kitchen, outdoor barbecue, televisions with DVD player and a selection of older and contemporary films. With an acre of grass and trees, it's peaceful and quiet here.

We are just 40 minutes from Lake Tahoe and Sierra Nevada ski resorts and 10 minutes from downtown Reno.

There's trout fishing and summer swimming in the Truckee River just a mile walk or drive from the house. And nestled near the foot of the Sierra's, it's a gateway to summer fun either in the mountains or to the east in the high desert. It's a great home base for the Reno/Tahoe area.

Sorry, but WE DO NOT ALLOW PETS OR PARTIES, RECEPTIONS, WEDDINGS OR OTHER GROUPS.

What makes this house unique

The unique benefits of this house are its rural setting, but it is also close to town. The acre of grass and trees give it a quiet, outdoorsy feel. The game room with a ping pong table and pinball machine, books and board games provide indoor fun.

Great spot. Country property but close to everything around.

  • 4 of 5

Good for groups, lots of beds for comfortable lodging. Large yard and patio to lounge around outside and a big game room. Would recommend!

Spacious, clean, comfortable and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 7 (4 adults and 3 kids ages 2, 3, 5)....and this place was perfect for our weekend trip to Reno for the Rib Cookoff. An awesome game room with pinball, ping pong and lots of kids toys.

The layout was great and was much larger than anticipated. HUGE backyard with tons of shade.

Overall this place was just what we needed and had all the key amenities. No wifi, but in some ways that was a welcomed escape from iPads, etc.

Very close to stores, freeway and not too far from all the fun Reno has to offer. Location is quiet, spread out and in a very nice neighborhood.

Would definitely stay here again.

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here the week of 4th of July. This house was perfect for us. The location is great, it is tucked away in very nice neighborhood but only 10 min from anything you need. The house was very roomy, we are a family of 5, and the game room is awesome our whole family enjoyed it! We put a new deck of cards in the game room for other families to enjoy! The back yard is a great place to get outside and enjoy the weather and shade from the trees the kids loved paying out there. Doug was very nice and had great advice on what to visit with our children as it was our first time visiting Reno and Tahoe. We would highly recommend this house, and we would definitely stay here again!

Perfect, peaceful property.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house because it was in the vacinity of where my son was getting married. This was such a lovely relaxing property, very peaceful and completely furnished with everything. The huge back yard was like a private park. I would rent this house again.

Great vacation getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Doug's place based on proximity to family who lives in the area. It was definitely worth it to us to have the amenities of a home and pretty yard rather than stay in a hotel, and we were so glad we did. Though we didn't utilize the game room, it would be nice for families with kids. The backyard is large and beautiful, just like it looks in the pictures. The best part for us was the neighborhood, very residential and quiet. There's a beautiful walking trail near Hunter Creek Reservoir that's a few minutes' walk away, we enjoyed that thoroughly. Doug was always available and super easy to work with. Thanks for a great stay!
