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.
Sorry, but WE DO NOT ALLOW PETS OR PARTIES, RECEPTIONS, WEDDINGS OR OTHER GROUPS.
I am a writer and photojournalist. I grew up in the area and attended the university here. Now I have a family of my own and live in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Doug Oakley purchased this house in 1976
The unique benefits to this house are its rural setting, but it is also close to town. The acre of grass and trees give it a quiet, outdoorsy feel. And the game room with a ping pong table and pinball machine are nice additions.
The property was very nice and was in a great location no more than 15 minutes from the airport yet very quiet. I would highly recommend this property. It had a ton of amenities with the only drawback being a lack of TV cable and WiFi which I personally was fine with but the others felt they would have enjoyed. The owner was great to work with. Thanks again for a great time.
My husband and my 3 kids spent 4 days here for a family reunion. My sister lives in town but we decided to get a place where we could all get a good night's sleep. The house was spacious and really clean. It was perfectly set up for kids and while we weren't there a lot, when we were, the kids had a great time playing ping pong and all the games in the rec room. All the amenities were attended to and the kitchen had pretty much everything we needed to make breakfast and lunch. The neighborhood is quiet and you can get a good run in right out the front door. It is also close to any shopping you may need. I would definitely stay here again in the future.
We were visiting Reno for a family event and traveling with our two children (11 year old boy, 14 year old girl). Rather than get 2 hotel rooms for 2 nights, we decided to book this home for a similar price. It couldn't have worked out better!
We arrived Friday afternoon and the home was just as described - dated but very clean. The ping-pong table was fun for our whole family, and our son really enjoyed the pinball machine. There is even an old record player. I did not find any board games for older kids or adults, but there were certainly toys for smaller children. My husband had to get up early the next morning for an early round of golf, and having the home, instead of a hotel room, allowed the rest of us to sleep in while he got ready. We visited in late July and the yard was not green like the photos show. I suspect there are water restrictions so the lawn could not be watered as much as it needed, anyway we did not spend much time in the yard because it was so hot and dry.
Doug, the owner, was easy to communicate with by text or phone. I would certainly stay at this home again.
We rented this house (four adults and two kids) to attend a local family wedding. It was perfect. The house was clean and bright and on a single level (very important for my dad who has difficulty with stairs). We were able to relax between the various functions of the weekend with out rushing and without the smoke and noise that usually comes from staying in a casino or hotel.
Rooms / beds were comfortable, kitchen was well appointed and the game room was a find for the kids. Pinball machine, toys and the ping pong table were a plus. (Kids always find other peoples toys more fun and ours definitely did). The yard is huge and beautiful, but we did not have time or weather to enjoy it.
All in all, it gave all three generations, a quiet place to chill.
Had a wondeful stay. Doug and his family were very responsive to needs like plowing the driveway after snow storm. The house is comfortable, clean, quiet and well laid out for quiet sleeping while others are still up. Fantastic place for kids! Toys, games and ping pong. Also horses in back neighbor's lot love being fed carrots! No internet is not a problem if you hace cell phone hot spot. Would stay here again for sure!
We were very comfortable in this spacious home. Very quiet and restful. Huge yard for granddaughter to run around in. Easy access to pretty much everything Reno has to offer being just off McCarren. Owners were extremely easy to work with. Only thing missing was wifi, or I would give this place a 5 star.
