About Mike Junemann

I enjoy finding destination properties, and tailoring them to the specific needs of a vacation rental. I try to anticipate anything a vacationer may desire for their trip.

I welcome input, and almost always add to my houses whenever tenants make suggestions.

Mike Junemann purchased this house in 2011

Why Mike Junemann chose Alta

Having acreage at rental property is certainly not necessary. However, it has been well liked by many. Although the cultivated yard is of reasonable size for entertaining, tenants have enjoyed the large flattened areas for playing football, frisbee, etc.

What makes this house unique

There is no other way to say it, this property is UNIQUE! There is no other rental property in the greater tahoe are which is this secluded, and still so accessible. (It's less than a mile to hwy 80).

I love how close it is to skiing, and sledding, as well as lakes, and summer activities. Yet, it is less than a half hour from Auburn for shopping, etc.

Honolulu, HI

Huge house with a lot of room!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here twice now and absolutely love it! We do an annual snowboard trip with about 15 people and this house is perfect. Beds for everyone and lots of space. Backyard is huge and fun to go exploring in. Very secluded area but is not far from the main road. Really easy to get on and off the highway. Right off the exit there is a gas station and a pretty well stocked convenience store. We did most of our main shopping in Auburn which isn't far. Enough parking for our 5 SUVs in the driveway.

Kitchen is big enough for multiple people to cook and there is also a built in BBQ in the back.

Can't find a single thing we don't like about this place! And the owner Mike is a super cool guy!

Thanks again Mike! From the Hawaiians haha

This property is a casual, relaxed place with lots of beds and 3 baths.

  • 4 of 5

This is the fifth year we have rented this house for our annual non profit business meeting and retreat. It has enough separate beds to accommodate 7 adults sleeping alone and twice that for couples. We're a dog breed rescue and always have a few to bring along. The back yard fencing has a wide opening which we close by using exercise pens and bungee cords. The kitchen is big enough for 2-3 cooks not to bump into each other. The appliances were all in working order. The owner was easy to work with and wants to provide a satisfactory customer service experience. If you're not looking for fancy, this place may suit you! We always enjoy the nearby "Monte Vista Inn" for Saturday dinner. Always delicious. We're planning on coming back again in 2017 due to this place meeting our needs.

Awesome Secluded House!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here during June 2015 with about 15 other friends. The house was absolutely perfect for us! It had plenty of room, was nice and secluded (which for us was necessary because we got a bit roudy!), and had a beautiful outdoor area. I highly recommend this house to anyone with a big group!

I also want to thank Michael for being so friendly and accommodating! Overall a great experience!

Dutch Flat - Great site for Extended Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We just completed a wonderful summer Family Reunion vacation at Hundred Acre

Wood in Dutch Flat.

Kudos to Mike for putting together a wonderful, beautiful, functional and

enjoyable property for us to stay at.


The property is in the woods, well removed from other homes and people. There is

a rail line close by the property. You could hear trains frequently during the day. This

was not an issue for my group. Dutch Flat is roughly halfway between Sacramento

and Truckee. The home is very easy to find. and access to I-80 is less than 5

minutes away. Truckee, Squaw Valley and Lake Tahoe are 45-75 minutes away

(depending on traffic). Colfax is 15 minutes "down hill" with a reasonable market

and a number of fast food dining options.

We found little to see in Dutch Flat itself, but probably did not give it a fair amount

of exploration. Colfax had more to see. Auburn (15 miles past Colfax) has even

more options.

Bear River Campground is along the Bear River, outside of town. This was our place

to try gold panning. (Day use area, with parking, just past the Campground).

No, we didn't find any nuggets, but the river location itself is very scenic, quiet

and peaceful. Go to Mountain Man Mining in downtown Colfax for panning eqpt.

and directions.


Five different family groups came together at Dutch Flat, Ages 8 to 80+. And, a

great time was had by all.

Great sleeping arrangements. Just about every bed had a pullout trundle bed

mattress for extra sleeping room. And the living room couches all easily converted

to futon mattresses.

Kitchen arrangements were excellent. Comfortable for two cooks to operate in at a

time. Well stocked. We used the BBQ several times. The Hot Tub was also used

several times, and just sitting outside on a warm summer evening was very nice.

It is obvious that Mike is investing time, money and energy to make Dutch Flat into a

wonderful extended family or group retreat. We know from experience that this is

hard work. Mike gets it, and we are happy to give him, and Dutch Flat our strongest

possible recommendation.

We look forward to planning next year's family reunion. Dutch Flat, and

Hundred Acre Wood, we hope to see you again in Summer 2015!

Family friendly getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great property with abundant room for 12 adults and 10 kids. The kids enjoyed biking around the driveway, the rope swing, hiking around the property. Very relaxing, and Mike was friendly and easy to work with. Highly recommended.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great! Mike was really helpful and always easy to get in contact with. Booking was super easy.

The property was well maintained and clean upon arrival. It was pretty easy to get to and was really close to freeway access. There were other places within 15min to go to. We went to our normal snow spot at Squaw Valley which was an hour away but it was no problem driving there. There were other places for snow play closer, we just choose to go to Squaw.

I would definitely recommend this place to family and friends.

Please note: I do not check email often, so you will reach me much faster by phone. Also, I find that questions and answers go much faster by phone. So, if you're looking for a last-minute booking you should definitely call. And, even if it is not last-minute, when emailing please include your phone number in your inquiry.
Also, I prefer not to rent to anyone unless I have spoken to them.

Discounts offered by phone. Online booking is NOT accurate unless you call first so I can add/subtract options from your booking. Please note: Please CALL for accurate information regarding extra space addition, discounts, short notice specials, etc.

If you prefer to book online, please call first. I find that tenants are much happier to hear details, options, and corrections to online booking info.
Also note: There are additional fees for several options including hot tub use. Vrbo will not yet allow for optional fees. If I input the hot tub, they will always charge for the hot tub, even if the tenant decides not to use it. Vrbo has not yet offered an option to include this in their book online system. If you book online, additional charges may apply based on your chosen dates, options, etc.

Thanks, Mike (530)867-4252
