“Janine’s cabin is perfect! Handcrafted themselves! It is secluded and peaceful. We had complete privacy. The cabin is equipped with everything we needed. Just stop at a grocery store before heading there. The cabin was very clean and she even had a cute welcome message upon entry which was a nice touch. Janine even referred us to a very nice masseuse in Auburn during our trip. Perfect for that extra relaxation. We will cherish our time there and hope to come back soon! I would also suggest Donner Lake for water sports and swimming. It was amazing! Also during this time there was a lot of mosquitoes, so be prepared! Thanks again for everything! Can’t tell you enough how much we needed to get away and disconnect.”

“This house is a hidden gem - located just outside Tahoe, but close to a number of underrated and beautiful hikes and lakes, in a lovely little community. The house is cozy and secluded, and with a fully stocked kitchen and all the amenities you could need. We had a wonderful time grilling, reading on the porch, walking to the local lake, and driving to to nearby Serenity and Donner lakes. The wifi was great - we were able to work and take meetings from the house during the week with no issues. Elena was a responsive host, who quickly answered all our questions, and offered great recommendations for local spots, restaurants, and activities. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!”
SOMEWHERE SPECIAL! Fairy Tale Cottage is situated in the lovely twin hamlets of Alta and Dutch Flat. This is Gold Country & the I-80 gateway to the High Sierra. Close to Colfax & Rollins Lake to the West & Immigrant Gap, Truckee, Ski Resorts of SugarBowl & Boreal to the East. You’ll love my place because it's a 1,000 sq ft. house with charming details (rock fireplace, soaker tub) in a beautiful forested acreage with easy 3/4 mile access to I-80, at 3,500’ elevation. Family and Dog friendly!
“Suzan’s property is hands down the nicest I have ever stayed at. You already get a welcoming feeling when pulling into the driveway. The cottage is warmly decorated without going overboard, and all amenities are up to date, clean, and sanitized. Suzan greeted us upon arrival, and went through what was available on her vast property: gardens, trails, the fire pit, games; the landscaping on her property makes it feel like you have your own small state park to yourself. The kids loved the open space while playing Hide and Seek between the trees! Suzan even recommended to visit Rollins Lake nearby for a family hike with the kids, and I think we’ve found our new favorite lake! We only spent one night at the cottage as a last minute getaway to disconnect from the noise of the current political climate, and it was the perfect little getaway. I look forward to returning here and starting new traditions!”
