Amazing owners, spacious home!

  • 5 of 5

I cant say enough good things about the Sweeney family - they were so thorough and attentive to all of my inquiries. Their home is spacious - the perfect size for two families with multiple little ones. A very short 12 minute drive to the beach made it the perfect location for us. We will be back.

Perfect getaway home for the family!!

  • 5 of 5

This home was incredibly comfortable and fit our whole family! We felt like we were in another world, as peaceful as it was. All the beds were comfortable and everything was very well described by the owner. I could not ask for a better home to stay in and hope to be able to stay there again! We had all the information needed to explore Truckee and the surrounding area. Donner Lake is so close by and perfect for a day at the lake or a leisurely hike. There is also a Natural Food store close by for anyone that has special dietary needs. There is truly something for everyone!

Great for groups small or large, very close to slopes or sledding out back

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautifully appointed inside with all the comforts of home. With a cozy gas fireplace, WiFi, cable TVs, Nintedo Wii, and sleds under the deck we enjoyed it so much we wanted to stay indefinitely. You can sled out back on the adjoining golf course or drive a few minutes and be on the slopes. The owners communicate well and are really thoughtful. We plan to go back soon!

Beautiful house and nice backyard.

  • 5 of 5

You don't need to go to boreal to play snow tubing, so I save money . Kids having fun playing the snow and snow tubing . My daughter and her cousins love it because they can play all they want. House is big and everything you need is there. Room for kids is huge. My family wants to go back next year.
