Great cozy family get-away spot!
Our family had a really lovely weekend here! The house is cozy and nicely furnished for a family to enjoy. There were plenty of board games, books, and videos to entertain ourselves with during some quiet time. The kitchen was well stocked with basics and good equipment. We really appreciated that since we cooked/prepared all of our meals while we were there. Some VRBO homes have only garage sale/second hand items in the kitchen, but Estee has supplied this one with quality items and everything we needed was on hand. That made our trip so much easier! The kids enjoyed tromping in the snow around the house and on the nearby trail. We borrowed the sleds and went sledding one morning on the fresh snow, and booked a day of skiing at Tahoe-Donner for one day. Everything was conveniently nearby and it was a great family trip. We especially enjoyed being able to turn on the fireplace to dry off and warm up when we came inside. The beds were very comfortable (our daughter told us on our first night back at home that she didn't think she'd be able to fall asleep after having become accustomed to such comfortable beds on our trip!) We were a little worried that we'd be snowed in when it was time to leave, but a hired plow came and took care of the driveway by 9 am. The street itself wasn't cleared by noon, though, and we did need our chains to get up the little bit of a hill to the main road, where it was already plowed. Good thing we had packed our chains and were prepared. :) This was a great place to spend a snowy weekend. Clean, well-maintained, comfortable and convenient with lots of amenities. Estee answered all of our questions in advance and we were able to have a great time. Highly recommend it!
