excellent vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Nicely appointed and very well maintained. Spacious, very comfortable, huge kitchen and dining. Perfect for year round, especially for winter since the house is handy to multiple Tahoe ski areas. Owners are very attentive and thoughtful and handle any loose ends promptly. We will definitely be back next winter!

Tahoe ski vacation

Had a great stay in this spacious and comfortable home over NYE2016. Description and pics of house accurate. Kate, the owner, is very responsive. Don't forget to bring a blow dryer!

Best of everything! We felt right at home...Amazing stay..Love the fireplace and hot tub!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our 4 night stay! Our group filled the house with grandparents, two couples, and 4 children (total 10) and there was room still to breath! The house is laid out very well so even though we were all staying together, everyone had their own space. Nicely furnished and decorated! You felt cozy even in this large home. The kitchen is well appointed and perfect for our winter getaway... big crock pot for beef stew and electric hot water kettle made hot chocolate a breeze. Hot tub felt so nice after a day on the slopes. Our kids sled down the hill right outside. The location is very close to Tahoe Donner, Boreal, and even Northstar. Kate was wonderful from the very start and always responded quickly to any questions about the house or local area. The driveway was plowed after every snow. This is the perfect home for anyone looking to have a family or large group vacation. Thanks for everything

A week to remember!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 (3 generations) spent Christmas week at this delightful home. We had plenty of room for sleeping, eating and celebrating. We even found room for our Christmas tree and many gifts. The location was perfect for the grandchildren, the driveway was a fabulous sledding area and we were a short drive to Northstar which had many options for other activities. The owner was quick to respond to any and all texts that I sent to her concerning questions about the house and surrounding area. The neighbors quickly became our friends when they saw the grandchildren out trying to sled on new snow they brought their snow blower out to give a better surface for the sleds. I would highly recommend this home to anyone wanting a family get away.

Nice home in great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in this house. The living room and master bedroom is nice and spacious, but the other 3 rooms are a bit tight. I see why there is a 10 person limit as not many more would have fit. Everything is maintained well, but there isn't sufficient bedding. There is no blankets for the futon, so my friends who slept on the futon had to use their kids' tiny blankets. The location is great if you're interested in Donner Lake, Boreal, Sugar Bowl or Donner Ski areas. It is also located conveniently close to the market for those forgotten items. I love that no pets are allowed!

Owner's Response: Hi Sandy, Thanks so much for your review. Glad you all had a good time. I'm sorry that there were no blankets on the futon. There should have been or we should have had extras in the closet (if the cleaning crew didn't put fresh ones on). We will check on this the next time we're at the house. Thanks again, Kate
