SPACIOUS FAMILY FRIENDLY HOME IN RENO/TAHOE AREA

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Reno

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 7

Large three bedroom, two bathroom vacation getaway in park-like setting on an acre of land surrounded by 18 Oak trees. It's just 40 minutes from Lake Tahoe and 10 minutes from downtown Reno.

There's trout fishing and summer swimming in the Truckee River just a mile walk or drive from the house. And the Hunter Creek Trailhead, which goes straight up into the Sierra Nevada's, is a five minute drive from the house.

Nestled near foot of the Sierra's, it's a gateway to summer fun either in the mountains or to the east in the high desert. It's a great home base for the Reno/Tahoe area.

Our home has a fully equipped kitchen, outdoor barbecue, pinball machine, televisions with DVD player and a selection of older and contemporary films. With an acre of grass and trees, it's peaceful and quiet here.

The property is visited regularly by abundant wildlife including hawks, geese, quail, rabbits and other small game.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • limited accessibility
  • Long-term Renters Welcome

Awesome Place

  • 5 out of 5
What a fantastic place Doug. We were very impressed. 3 couples and we had plenty of room and never stepped on each other. We noticed the game room is extreamly kid friendly. Next time up we'll bring the grand kids with us to have a blast. The property is beautiful. We drank our morning coffee on the patio and watched the neighbors horses roam around. It was a beautiful place. Hope to stay there again.

Nice yard- secluded location

  • 3 out of 5
House is old and dated, yard was awesome, great neighborhood.
Was not very clean and we did not have all the stuff you would find in most vrbo rentals, there is a lot of personal stuff and there are toys junked up.
Doug the owner was very nice and is new at this so we didn't complain.
But was disappointed I did have to pay for 2 broken sprinkler heads along very narrow driveway, I didn't think to inspect them on arrival... Lesson learned for us to.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your frank feedback Jennifer! We take all comments and concerns about our home very seriously. We work very hard to give our guests what they pay for: Clean, comfortable accommodations with all the amenities they need for a wonderful vacation or business trip. We did however, have to pay for emergency repairs on two broken lawn sprinklers that were run over, sprinklers that are positioned well off to both sides of our driveway, and were gushing water when it was time for the weekly watering. Again, thank for your feedback!

Family trip

  • 5 out of 5
Thank you so much Doug for the wonderful weekend we enjoyed at your beautiful home. It was the perfect place to meet. The kids loved your park-like feel to the yards. The neighbor's horses were a great surprise for them. Most of our time was spent in your beautiful backyard. The playroom was great for the little ones to romp around in and we didn't feel like we had to be careful with anything out there; A few bean bags or something might be nice for us older folks to sit in though while the little ones play :-). If and when we choose to meet again in Reno, we definitely will be making contact with you, and we definitely recommend your place to anyone, especially families. Also, thank you for all your assistance ahead of time and for checking up on us during our stay. You were a great host. God bless!

Our home is just outside of Reno, at the base of the Sierra Nevada's and about 5 minutes from the Truckee River. Lake Tahoe and all the world famous ski resorts are just a 40 minute drive away. Reno also has casinos and numerous year round events.
