  • Nice Views and Layout


    We stayed at the house during a major snowstorm. It was very convenient, with a well stocked kitchen, board games, etc. The hosts were helpful and responsive. The driveway is relatively steep so a snow-capable vehicle is important.

    The house was great. Great location, well appointed with newer appliances. The kitchen had all the essentials plus paper products and spices. The only issue would be the longer, steep driveway. When frozen, our car slid down about 20 feet overnight and almost hit the second car. However, we put wedges underneath our back tires and that prevented it from sliding down again. Knowing how to overt that, I would definitely rent again. The owners were very responsive and extremely nice too.

    We loved everything about this gorgeous home. It was our family's first vacation together : (daughters, son in laws and grandchildren). Our daughter has since asked if we could make this VRBO our annual "family vacation spot". Stunning views. Beautifully decorated. Organized like a charm. Every SINGLE thing you could ever imagine you might need.. Justin & Jessica have already thought about and you'll find it. The living area was comfortable. Lots of books and games tastefully provided.Our granddaughter fell in love with the décor dog in the living room. She talked to him, "fed" him and named him "Pickles". The bedroom on the first floor is great. The bed is super soft; like a giant marshmallow. Pillows, linens etc. all high quality, lovely and spotlessly clean. The master suite is boujee, we loved it! Including the convenience of having a Keurig right there.The carpets throughout are soft and clean.The kiddo's thoroughly enjoyed the books, toys etc. upstairs in the bunk room. We especially appreciated each having our own full bathroom on our bedrooms. Showers are stocked with body wash, shampoo and conditioner.Towels a plenty. The bathrooms are immaculate! The kitchen too and meticulously stocked. The deck is where we spent most of the time. The adults played ball toss which was provided by hosts. We all took turns in the hammock.The kiddo's loved being on the deck hanging out with us. I loved hearing the birds in the morning and early evening.The home location is tranquil. We hardly saw another person and there's certainly zero traffic.We went to the pool at Trout Creek.. marvelous amenities. Big pool, kiddie's pool and hot tubs. $17 per person.Ample table, chairs and umbrellas. We took our own beach towels, drinks and snacks.They allow you to take in a cooler which is convenient. We have stayed in multiple VRBO over the years in various states. This house was BY FAR the finest one we have stayed in because of the owner's attention to detail. It's their little thoughtful touches to their home that will make your stay lavish and pleasant from beginning to end. Thank you Justin and Jessica for your exceptional prompt communication. Also for being so kind and willing to let us check in early. Memories made together in this home will be treasured by our family for ever. Thank you Justin & Jessica. We will be back.. (not to sound like Arnold Schwarzenegger or anything ;)Thank youJames & Brenda

    Great location for access to Truckee/Tahoe-Donner. Easy to get to the ski and snow park area.There were a few glitches (broken closet door, lights that didn't go on and common area smaller than it appears on the website but rooms adult rooms were comfortable and kitchen well stocked. Good place for sledding in the back.

  • Clean, quiet, great location


    This house was wonderful for two families with a total of 3 kids. spacious, nicely decorated, clean, and great location. The owners were so responsive and helpful and FUNNY! Everything is so thoughfully laid out and even labelled, and the house is stocked with anyhting and everything you might need. The beds are super soft (we actually prefer a firmer mattress but that is a matter of taste and no fault of the owners) and did I mention that the house is beautifully decorated, quiet, and has great views? Thank you for opening your home to us!
