  • Ingenious use of space in a cozy high-end studio, great location for a classic ski experience

    "I just came back from a 3 night stay with my two little girls age 4 and 6. The "Studio" has been made into a three bedroom of sorts with really cool built in storage and 3 separate berths for sleeping that can be almost blackout dark with the curtains. While you can hear each other like in any shared space, I was able to work for hours with the lights on while my kids slept in their own beds in the same main room. We loved waking up and watching the snow fall out the windows while sitting in bed (see the photos). A really special experience for my kids and me. Bonus is you can see a bit of the main road to check driving conditions. It is almost within walking distance of the ski school beginner slopes-though the walk is along a road so probably not super safe but good to have the option when 2 feet of snow fell one day and I wasn't sure if the car would make it home. We drove because of my little ones and ski equipment. There is also a shuttle you can call. There is a toilet in a separate room from the shower/bath which is very helpful and around the corner from the beds. The cooking area is hotel style with a smallish dorm fridge and various efficient cooking equipment as described in other reviews. It was more than adequate for our needs (cereal, coffee and snacks). We ate at the area restaurants and on slopes. There is an easy to use fireplace and DVD player with nicely placed screen. We especially loved all the books including children's books! The owner was inexhaustibly responsive to my myriad questions about payments and the snow conditions and directions. It could be a hard place to find at night. I have a minivan and ultimately brought and used chains [which I'd recommend to anyone coming up to Kirkwood 4 wheel drive or not-just in case]. He took the time to greet us when we arrived and when the roads closed the day we checked out, he even offered to let us visit until the roads cleared. This is probably not the best pick for anyone with toddlers, babies or infirm grandparents: because you need to climb up into bed from a stool and because you need to walk down a bit of a small hill to get to the door and because you need to park the car at the top of a driveway to make space for snow removal. No problems for my 4 year old though who was in awe of the winter wonderland when we walked to our car. My older daughter actually cried a bit when we left saying she was sad to leave the cabin."

  • Magical Place with Incredible People

    "My husband and I got married at the HideOut on a beautiful Tuesday in July. We had been out to Open Houses on the property twice before our stay, but nothing compared to the few days "of our own" that we got to spend there with family, friends, and the Hoovers. Tom, BJ, Dusty, and the kiddos (I think Josh was "off") were so incredibly welcoming, helpful, and down to earth, and always professional. I agree with fellow reviewer and Tahoe local, Christina, who said all the right things. This place is close enough to still consider it "Tahoe", but gets you far enough away from the craziness so you can feel at peace. It has something for everyone, from camping to "glamping" or a luxurious lodge feel. The HideOut is amazing because the Hoovers are amazing!! They put their hearts into every detail-- the newly built barn, the beautiful campground bathrooms, the amazing gargantuan hot tub, handling the recycling/trash, monitoring the fire pits, details in all the bedrooms/bathrooms, kitchens stocked with utensils/pots/pans, helping us hire local folks for shuttles and other help-- all while keeping such a friendly and mellow attitude. We were able to "unplug" from our cell phones and laptops for a few days and just enjoy each other. We had friends and family tell us they haven't been that relaxed in *years*, and now, even a month later, we still have people talking about how amazing the HideOut is. We could not agree more. A few notes for those planning your own wedding out there-- The HideOut is an amazing "blank slate" for the wedding of your dreams. You aren't bogged down with the same restrictions as other wedding venues-- the place is yours to explore and make your own! Tom and BJ have a LOT of experience and can make good recommendations. Take advantage of the Open House to meet some vendors and ask questions. I have NO COMPLAINTS about my experience, because I think I realized early on that this place is not a banquet hall, ski resort, or country club that has "their way" or "required vendors" or stuff like that. But that means YOU have to put in the work up front to make it what you want when you get there! If you don't want to be hassled by the details and decisions, hire a great event/wedding planner, but DO NOT pass this place up! There's nowhere else like it. And don't forget to bring bug spray, sunscreen, and a flashlight/headlamp!"
