We rented this home in early December and absolutely loved it. The owners have taken care of everything. The kitchen was fully stocked, the beds were comfy, the towels and linens were new, etc. Great pool table, hot tub, and layout. The house has three floors so it is easy for a large group to enjoy their stay. The bottom floor contains 2 bedrooms and a game room with TV and of course, a bathroom. The main floor has the kitchen, living, fireplace, bathroom and plenty of space to enjoy. Large windows bring the mountains in. It's truly lovely. The third floor is where the other 3 bedrooms are. Vaulted ceilings and large windows bring the woods inside. I really enjoyed waking up to the big pine trees out my window every morning.
Within walking distance to Chambers Landing Beach which is public. We didn't go, but I appreciated how close it was. Homewood is about 5 minutes away, Squaw Valley is about 20-30 minutes but the drive is beautiful and you get there pretty darn quickly.
TONS of miles of cross country skiing trails, which double as hiking and biking trails in the summer. Sugar Pine State Park is a 5 minute walk from the house. Close to Ellis Peak Trail, Eagle Rock Trail, Barker Pass and more.
Needless to say, you can probably tell by this review that we will be back. We really enjoyed the house and the owners and we've already booked our vacation for next year.
