About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Large three bedroom, two bathroom vacation getaway in park-like setting on an acre of land surrounded by 18 Oak trees. Includes game room with ping pong table and pinball machine.

Our home has a fully equipped kitchen, outdoor barbecue, 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.

We are just 40 minutes from Lake Tahoe and Sierra Nevada ski resorts 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 nestled near the 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.

Graduation getaway

  • 5 of 5

Had such a wonderful time enjoying this spacious home base during my kiddos graduation weekend. Close to everything but a world away from downtown. Enjoyed playing frisbee in the yard and hanging out around the kitchen table.

Big enough for everyone to have a favorite spot. Thank you!

Serene escape at a beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

The property was 100 times better than the photos described. It was a great escape for the holidays. All amenities provided in the home. Very clean and good entertainment for the whole family. The lack of WiFi was great for family presence and connection. The owner was amazing with awesome communication and advice. We look forward to staying in the home on future trips.

Awesome family friendly, comfortable home with everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over the Christmas holiday and hosted some family from California for dinner. We couldn't have asked for anything better. The home is spacious, comfortable, clean, has a large fenced yard, fun game room, and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare and enjoy a Christmas dinner for 14 people. It was by far the best stocked rental home we've rented. The location was perfect, just outside of town and very quiet, yet close to everything. The owner was very responsive to questions and flexible with our family coming from out of town. We had a fantastic time here and would not hesitate to stay again. My only issue, though minor, was that there was no curtain on the master bath shower and the window looked right into the backyard. We had to make sure no one was in the yard or walking up to the front door when showering.

Great, bright, spacious house!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best experience here. The house is very well stocked, with anything you could possibly need. The games room is full of books, puzzles, board games, children's toys, not to mention the ping pong table and pinball machine! Beds were extremely comfortable. Location is amazing. On site laundry was a huge bonus! And the owners could not have been kinder, more responsive, or more hospitable. We loved Reno and had a wonderful time. Can't wait to visit again!

Great spot. Country property but close to everything around.

  • 4 of 5

Good for groups, lots of beds for comfortable lodging. Large yard and patio to lounge around outside and a big game room. Would recommend!
