                                                              Lovely location on the Carson River with incredible scenery! Spectacular rock formations everywhere! Clean/like new cottage that is well stocked and cozy. We live "away from it all" in Glacier, Washington and loved the same "welcome to your quiet home" feel! Would return again for another stay as well as recommend to friends and family. Great central location

                                                              charming cottage by the creek

                                                              beautiful canyon surroundings with creek in back. very nice cottage, felt brand new like we were the first guests. 4 adults (grandparents got master bedroom) and kids ages 8 and 6 (sleeping bags with mattress, did not try couch). lots of nice touches, super clean. highly responsive host. amenities like staellite tv and wifi appreciated. nice full size fridge and handy toaster oven and hotplate stove. easy hot water for dish washing by hand. full size stove and better lighting for everyone to read at night would have been even better. No walking trails right outside but plenty within 15-30 min driving. not much snow around unfortunately so no sledding on this trip. Kirkwood skiing one day was fine but again not much snow. Nearby Grover Hotsprings (20 min drive) were good but closed on Wed: regular pool next to old time hotspring pool. nice hiking there too. Nearest town aware of with supermarket and restaurants is Gardnerville, NV (30 min drive).

                                                              Comfortable cottage in a beautiful setting

                                                              We had a great weekend staying at this charming cottage. It was clean, comfortable and very well appointed. The location is beautiful and the owner is great to work with. We'll definitely visit again!

                                                              Great couples getaway
