Communication with Burt was great in getting us in the door and for everything we needed; he's a really nice guy!
My wife and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and this home was a great get-away with some peace and quiet in the winter in the tiny town of Markleeville. The house was more than we expected from the listing. You get a large kitchen with all of the accessories and side dining room for home-cooked meals; a small living room with a comfy couch and chair; TWO bedrooms(!) if you want to split the cost of the unit with another couple or bring your kids; a washer and dryer; and a large fenced-in yard for your dogs and hot tub to soak in after a day of activities.
There was 1 restaurant with a bar open in the winter where locals were friendly to talk to. Right next door to the house is a well-stocked grocery store, (you won't find steak and potatoes, but there are snacks, staples, beer, and wine). On our 2nd night we decided to have a fun day out and drove to Reno for massages, a spa, and some fun in the casino, which was about 1 hour 15 minutes away and South Lake Tahoe is only 45 minutes away.
Upon returning home to our dog family, it was relaxing to enjoy a glass of wine in the hot tub. We especially liked the Christmas lights on the patio and in the hot tub! Hit the buttons a couple of times for a neat little show!
Just like my boss at my yearly review, I like to offer constructive criticism for improvements that will enhance your business. As such, I recommend that a cheese grater be added to the kitchen utensils (about $4 in the grocery store), a fireplace is 1 of the features that we were really seeking for added ambiance (perhaps a gas one downstairs and electric with various light settings in the upstairs bedgroom), replacing board in gate (if removed our little 20 pound dogs may have been able to escape), availability of a BBQ (I didn't ask if it was available so maybe it could have been), maybe someday a 2nd bathroom downstairs (for parties of 4 and so that people don't have to climb the stairs to get to the bathroom).
Just some pointers for potential future improvements for our return business.
All aspects of our review are 5-Star!!!
