Simple house with everything we needed. Fantastic location!
This was our second stay at this house. We love it because the location is perfect for hiking and biking, and it’s remote enough to feel private. Backs up to a large open area- great for small hike or morning coffee. Host is great, we might find ourselves there again!
Comfortable and charming retreat
We had a great time in Rick's house. We came up to go skiing in Sierra-at-Tahoe, which is only a short drive away. The house is well equipped with everything you need, in great condition, spacious and our girls were sad to leave after only 2 nights. The area is very quiet and we all slept well.
Lovely spot in the woods
We stayed here January 1st - 4th, 2118. The location is beautiful. The DVD collection is wonderful! We drove to Echo Lake and hiked on trail around it. I'm guessing there is often too much snow in winter to do this. GORGEOUS. We also hiked Lincoln Trail which is an old road right across meadow behind cabin. We cooked all of our meals in cabin, so were really grateful that we shopped at home, because Lira's grocery store, the only one nearby, was great for things we forgot but very small. I have one suggestion for the owner/cleaning crew; leave more bath and dish towels for renter use, if you are going to say they will be there. I didn't bring my own, and there were only four bath towels for five of us (We had registered for five.) and two dish towels for a three night stay.
Great location, clean, quiet, comfortable.
My wife and I and our two girls enjoyed our ski weekend. Rick's house is a great location for such a trip -- it's a very short drive to both Sierra at Tahoe and Heavenly, as well as South Lake Tahoe. The house is cozy, quiet, and clean. We enjoyed watching one of the many movies in Rick's collection, reading books, and cooking in Rick's kitchen. Would come back again.
Nice clean house close to Sierra At Tahoe ski resort
We enjoyed staying here for a week during the holiday season. The house has a fully staffed kitchen, clean bathrooms and cozy bedrooms. Nice place to stay.
Comfy and convenient
The house is within easy reach of US50 without getting any noise to speak of. It's nice and warm (but not too warm) in the summer; I can't answer for the winter. Everything worked and the DVD library was very nice to have. Note: wash dishes by hand.
The meadow is fun for short walks -- it is more varied than it looks -- and dark enough for some star-gazing at night, if the sky is clear.
Located in a quiet neighborhood that provides easy access to hiking & biking trails. Located just a short 5 minute walk to the upper truckee river. Camp Richardson is 15 min. drive where there are many family activities ( lake Tahoe beach, bike rentals, awesome sight seeing & Lake Tahoe historical sights). South Lake Tahoe Casinos & night life are about 20 min. drive.
