This rental worked for us because it was quiet and the owner's were very accommodating. The bed in the bedroom is very comfortable with soft, cozy bedding.

This was our first time renting this little apartment and we were very pleased with everything. Clean, well maintained and very close to Donner and Prosser Lakes. We will definitely rent this little gem again. Thank you Kelly!

The owners, Kelly and Chris, are truly fantastic...the most welcoming, kind-spirited, people I have had the privilege to meet in some time. While the apartment is a little rustic, it is also charming, clean, comfortable, and well equipped. It was a bonus they allowed my son's puppy to join us! We will be happy to return!
