Don (and dogs) were there to meet us, and welcomed us into their cozy home. We were invited to use the common areas where we read books and enjoyed the beautiful view. The night was quite and comfortable. We would gladly come back again.
Great place, with very friendly and helpful hosts.
We really enjoy our stay at Polly and Don's house. We wish we had more time to relax at the house and to use Polly's massage service after a long day of skiing.
The bed is one of the most comfortable bed that I have ever slept on. The house is 5 mins drive into Truckee and 20 mins to North Star ski resort. I would highly recommend anyone to stay here.
Initially I was a bit worry about staying at a place with cats since I am highly allergic to cats however I did not have any problems. The room was very clean and free of pet hair.
Polly and Don were wonderful hosts! They have a lovely, well-maintained home, and their adorable pets (two dogs and two cats) were an added bonus. They both knew a lot about the area and were willing to suggest restaurants and activities. They were friendly, but they also respected our privacy and had their own activities/events to tend to, so it was a perfect balance. I would definitely recommend staying with them and hope to see them again.
Relaxing and welcoming home with beautiful view, fun dogs, and very comfy bed. Definitely recommended!
Polly & Don were great hosts. We had a very nice and neat separate bedroom and our own bathroom. They made our stay even better with breakfast and fruit each morning. We enjoyed our stay and would stay there again!
Polly and Don are great hosts and have a very warm and welcoming home with plenty of positive influence. Please do not miss an opportunity to stay with Polly and Don. A great place to relax and enjoy Truckee.
Polly and Don were spectacular hosts! They are warm and open people, and made our stay very comfortable! Polly and Don are the type of people who are great role models for the community and their living space embodied it. Their home was very cozy, clean, and inviting.
David and I made a trip to Truckee for to participate in the Tough Mudder event at NorthStar. Our stay was very short so we were mainly out and about but, we had the opportunity to come/go as we needed without feeling that we were intruding and when we had the chance, we would visit with them and their pets. They, including the dogs and cats, were all sooo friendly!!
Also, we took advantage of arranging massages for the day after our participation in Tough Mudder—Polly is amazing!!! I definitely recommend the massage when you stay.
Overall, our experience was great!! Polly and Don have a beautiful space in Tahoe, just a few minutes from downtown Truckee and a few short miles from NorthStar.
David and I would like to return for a casual "stay-cation" and stay with them again.
Polly and Don have a beautiful home and were very accommodating. The room was perfect - comfortable and private. They were very kind to put breakfast out for us the morning. We also enjoyed their two wonderful dogs. Would gladly stay with them again.
Very cozy, comfortable and friendly private room in Polly and Don's clean and eco-thoughtful home. The room felt private and the bed was just as comfy to sleep in as it looks in the photo.
Polly and Don were terrific hosts.
I was in Truckee for business so did not get the full out door sanctuary experience. I did love their mystical mini amphitheater with gorgeous views of the mountains and a crazy full moon that we had that weekend.
Very pet friendly. My pet pal, Lola, wanted to stay forever. Bless her city girl wants to be country girl heart.
Tasty, healthful snacks and tea were out at all times.
I enjoyed playing with Brodie and Scarlett, their dog pals too. They were very patient with Lola, who is a bit of a spaz.
When you walk around their picturesque grounds you can see that Polly and Don work hard on their commitment to soften their imprint on the planet. A peaceful setting and an inspiring life style. Thank you guys for letting Lo and I stay the weekend.
We had a great time with Polly and Don! They will be welcome to stay with us any time and we wish them the best of luck with creating their sanctuary in the Tahoe area-- hopefully one day we can be guests of theirs!
