About Kevin Dill
We are architects in San Francisco and designed and built this house in 2006. Raising two boys in the city, we have always known the importance of getting away to the wonderful outdoors that the Tahoe area has to offer. We started the boys skiing, fishing and hiking when they were 2 years old and they still enjoy the same activities today as college students. With the boys now away at school, we have the opportunity to open our home so that other families can partake in the same enjoyment that we have had over the years.
Kevin Dill purchased this House in 2006
Why Kevin Dill chose Olympic Valley
This property is conveniently and centrally located. About equidistant to Truckee and Lake Tahoe (Tahoe City), and only 1.5 miles to the Squaw Valley entrance, this location is ideal. The house is designed for families or goups and is very spacious. It has been designed in the Tahoe venacular and built majestically into the hillside to capture the view. Top of the line kitchen appliances and large dining room create a great opportunity for family and friends to dine together.

My family and I loved staying here. We loved everything about the cabin. From strolling along the river (across the street) to playing ping pong late into the night, to enjoying meals together. There were plenty of beds and so much space to just hang out and enjoy each other’s company. We were able to make it to Tahoe City - Commons Beach and Lake Forest Beach. We hiked near Squaw Valley and enjoyed all the shops in the Valley. The grocery store was less than ten minutes away too! I actually liked that the TV was downstairs and not in the main room. This made it so that my entire family spent quality time together, playing games and talking before bed. The kids loved exploring all the rooms and we were able to fill their blow up pool on the deck. Kevin was a great host and we will definitely be coming back!
Great vacation house!
Fabulous house and a setup for a family vacation with multiple families and young children. Easy access to great hiking and all the activities in the surrounding area. Would definitely recommend.
Beautiful home, great location.
My daughter got married last weekend in Tahoe City and we needed a large home for our family. This beautiful home was in a great location between Truckee and Tahoe City. The owner, Kevin, was very helpful, informative, kind and responsive.
Great House in a Perfect Location
Beautiful home in a great location. Its close proximity to Squaw and the Truckee river gives you awesome summer and winter activities. The house was perfect for our large group for the long weekend. It has lots of space and activities at the home like ping pong and horse shoes. I would absolutely book this place again in a heartbeat. Owners are very responsive and helpful. Thank you for everything. Cheers!
Home is perfect for large families and groups
Planned a family vacation here and the home provided ample space for our large group of 14, 7 adults and 7 children. Home is well laid out and kids enjoyed the large downstairs play room. Kitchen was well stocked with the basics and allowed for more than one cook to be in the kitchen. The owner, Kevin was very responsive to questions and concerns. He recommended a lovely kid friendly beach nearby which led to an epic day on the lake. Our family also enjoyed rafting the Truckee River, which is also close by. House is conveniently located between Truckee and Tahoe City. Enjoyed our stay and hope to return!
Great house for lots of people!
We stayed here with my kids, small grandchildren and their dogs. There was plenty of room for all. We didn't use all the possible bedrooms and beds. The house feels way bigger than 3500 sf. Great appliances, and well stocked with paper towels, cleaning supplies, etc. (This has been a question in other homes we've stayed in.)The weather was warmer than we expected, but cooled off nicely at night. We used a baby pool on the deck for the kids. The views from the main window, and the deck were beautiful. Great spot to relax. Must be able to climb stairs!
Just minutes from Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows, a short walk to the Truckee River, and a short drive to Lake Tahoe and historic Truckee, this property is ideally located for the myriad of outdoor activities available.
Other Activities: kayaking, snowmobiling, horseshoes, shopping, boating, snowboarding, wildlife viewing
