Team building McFadden Style

  • 5 of 5

The rental was better than expected. Although the house is a bit dated in some aspects, it provided everything we needed. Plenty of room, good beds, furnishings, CLEAN, all good. Especially thankfull for the driveway clearing of the 18" snowfall that took place. Dick was reachable when needed. A great place for a men's retreat/skiing/team building experience. The gas grill came in handy, too.

Great value, defiantely recommended...

Owner's Response: Scott, Thank you for your kind comments. We have made many improvements to the premises and furnishings over the past months and I'm glad you enjoyed them. Best of all was the arrival of the snow in time for your ski trip. Having the house so close to many world class ski resorts is a real plus. Truckee/Lake Tahoe is simply beautiful in every season and I'm pleased that you enjoyed the beauty of winter. Please make plans to come back soon and experience all the seasons! Best regards. Dick

Clean and convenient, with an owner who cares!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I inquired about availability, to the moment we headed home, Dick, the owner, was available and helpful for any questions/concerns! Nice, nice, nice!

Upon arrival we were shocked by the size of this place! The photos make the living room/dining room look rather cramped. NOT SO!!! Living room, dining room and kitchen are quite spacious! As well as the King bedroom downstairs! There is a nice size laundry room and understairs storage closet to keep all the slope clothes/equipment out of the way! We had 5 adults and 1 child and could have fit several more comfortably.

It would be hard to find fault in the cleanliness. Nice bright bathrooms with no mold! The living room has updated furnishings/decor. Very comforting and warm!! Gorgeous pine forest view from deck that runs the entire length of the living room. Wide open living room and windows all the way up to the above loft.

Extra comforts everywhere! Plenty of wood for the stove, large t.v. with dvd player, blender, fans, hairdryers, tons of towels, sleds, local activity info and extra quilts everywhere!

The only cons would be kitchen/hall/entryway are rather dated. Also, my husband and I like firm mattresses...but these are REALLY firm. Eggcrates or pillowtops would be a bit more comforting. Still...if you hit the local activities like you will be so exhausted at night that you don't even remember laying down..let alone if the mattress was a bit hard!! (If you have very small children, keep in mind that there are a lot of stairs to deal with. The ones for the loft being particularly ledgey.)

The local businesses are very convenient! An easy 1 1/2 mile drive will get you to Safeway, Rite-Aide, Round Table Pizza, Panda Express, etc....with old downtown Truckee being just a mile further.

I believe we will be checking in again next winter! Enjoy!

Owner's Response: Kimberly - Thank you for your comments. I'd like to take credit for the redecorating we did in the fall, but it was my daughter who had the great ideas and helped make it happen. The Eggcrates for the bed is a great idea. The redecoration is a work in progress and my daughter has many ideas! It was a pleasure to have you as our guests and we're very glad you had a great time. Please come back and stay with us again. Tahoe/Truckee is so beautiful all year round that you'd enjoy other seasons as well. Glad you and your family enjoyed the ski/boarding experience. Next year come on over to Mt. Rose-Ski Tahoe and enjoy the mountain there. Best regards. Dick
