couldn't stay longer.
Jacquie and David were wonderful hosts! The room and accommodations were lovely and as expected. The bed was very comfortable, towels and extra blankets were provided, and Jacquie even made a delicious breakfast for us on our last morning. Jacquie also made a helpful binder full of information about hikes, eating options, and things to do around Tahoe. We had a great stay and would definitely recommend this place to others looking for an easy, relaxing, and convenient place stay in the Tahoe area.
Jacquie and David were great! This is a beautiful spot with fantastic hosts!!
a five star stay! the home is set on a beautiful backdrop of hills and hikes, within walking distance to town and the lake. comfortable and lovely. both jacquie and david are wonderful hosts. it was
a magical week.
Jacquie and David are very gracious hosts and the room was very clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend their accommodations to anyone.
I had a very nice stay. David and Jacky are two special spirits. I would like to come back when the seasons are normal as this winter time around, it's more like summer. :)
Jacquie and David are fantastic hosts. The house is amazing, very complete, everything is available for guests, very clean and very well located too. They were very nice and helped us understanding the surroundings and gave us tips on what to do around the area. Definitely recommend it!
Beautiful room, lively joyous environment, anyone who meets Jacquie is blessed, she is a kind, caring, excellent host. I highly recommend staying in her eclectic mountain cabin home. I look forward to my next stay
Jacquie + David were amazing hosts! They were so accommodating and have a lot to offer if interested in exploring Tahoe to the fullest. This was my first time in Tahoe as well as my first time using Airbnb and I couldn't imagine a better experience. Their place is awesome; clean, cozy, comfortable. Even bigger in person than in photos. It was the perfect get away and the fact that they include access to the hot tub, kayaks, bikes, etc. was a huge plus making everything so much more convenient. The activities and crafts they offer help with are great. Jacquie is super talented and makes the coolest leather boots and pouches. And David a former skateboarder has some great stories to share. I highly recommend joining her on the morning hikes. She knows the best trails and they start right in the back yard. She's also happy to show you some great workout techniques using just a walking stick ( Nat Geo is even doing a special on it! So cool! ) They are down to earth, genuine, interesting people. I wish I could of stayed longer just to get to know them better. I intend on coming back as soon as possible.
If you're looking for a real Tahoe experience and not just another typical tourist vacation this is the place for you. You won't be disappointed.
Jacquie and David are gracious hosts. They gave me ideas on what hikes to do, on events, on safety, and really answered any and all questions. For example, I visited the environmental research center for an informative and fun presentation and an important video about the formation and sustenance of Lake Tahoe; I had an amazing treatment at a local spa; and I made gorgeous sheep skin boots with Jacquie's experienced and patient guidance. The house is very clean, organized and so cozy. Jacquie and David are friendly, non-invasive, and passionate about nature. My goal was to relax and re-energize, and that is exactly what I did in a beautiful and peaceful place! Thank you!
