FALL: Most blissful time of quiet and color. Biking, hiking, kayaking, SUP all still amazing. Wildlife, especially Bears and Wild Mustangs are most active in the Fall. Watch bears feed on salmon at Taylor Creek, or track unique and migrating birds, as you walk the 2-mile loop around Spooner Lake, which also is the best place to enjoy the Aspens incredible full fall color display. Great time to take mountain hikes for color and coolness, or enjoy local cultural, heritage and artistic events and happenings throughout the watershed.

Jacquie and Mick are (mostly) on site or available by cell (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) or house ph(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). Mick can be reached at (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN).
The neighborhood has walking access to some of the most incredible trails in the basin!
It is less than 1 mile from Tunnel Creek Trailhead which leads to the famous Flume Trail! It is on the edge of town and at the beginning of the NV State Parks and all the wild beaches of the east shore. It is right below a local ski resort which creates awesome uphill hikes and right up the street from the lake, the Tahoe Environmental Center and Sierra Nevada College!
Please do not bother, or use the driveway to turn around, at 1050 (the next house up the hill)
The local TART bus stop is 1/4 mile from the house (ask about passes) and the ski shuttle 1 block. You can easily bike to anything in the town
Other Things to Note
PLEASE! Do NOT bother the uphill neighbor. If you can't find the house, call anytime of day (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN).
No smoking anywhere on the property. The Tahoe forest is very dry and vulnerable to the slightest spark.
PLEASE do NOT use the (uphill) neighbors driveway to turn around (use the street). And if you park on the street (because your car is to low to make my driveway, or both spaces are taken) then please park closest to my driveway, as the uphill neighbor needs 4-5 ft street clearance to clear his driveway.
Consideration: While each quest space is private, the house is NOT sound-proof (or child-proof). Quiet time is from 10:00pm to 8am. Please let us know if your peace is disturbed or you require quiet time outside of those hours, so we can remedy asap.
FYI: Nevada casinos and bars are open 24 hrs for any late night parties.
Please bathe before using the Hot Tub, as we use minimal Bromine.
Responsibility: We gladly provide kayaks, bikes, sleds, snow shoes and any other equipment for your use, we only ask you return it in the condition you found it and let us know of any problems that arise.
