My home sits on 2 1/2 acres next to US Forest Service land, above the city of Reno with 2 forks of Thomas creek on the property forming an island, complete with hammock for a near spiritual experience! Everyone who comes here says they never want to leave! The guest room is large with a smart TV, private bath and deck and fabulous views. Check out my (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) page, The Cool Place.
This is an architect designed, very unique home at the end of a dusty country road, where you might see deer, coyotes, quail and if you're really lucky a Great Horned Owl or Bald Eagle! My friends with a Tesla made it in and out easily! The design is meant to be an "inside/out" house. The living room has 13-foot ceilings and is mostly glass, weather watching is amazing! Many hiking trails from the doors. Upper and Lower Thomas Creek trails are a short walk away. The views are to die for! Come hike, ride your mountain bike, ski in the winter, or write poetry, paint or start your novel! Spring, summer, and fall all offer different eye delights and in winter, Mt Rose and Slide Mountain are practically in the backyard and close for skiers. And beautiful Lake Tahoe is only 20 minutes away!
I love to share my wonderful home! You will have access to all of the house but my private space.
There is a media room with a large screen, a projector and Wisdom Audio speakers
The guest bedroom is large with a king sized Tempurpedic bed, weather appropriate bedding, and 100% cotton sheets; if you feel like sleeping under the stars, you can do that too on hot summer nights on the rooftop deck. The private bathroom is en-suite.
There is a Keurig in the kitchen, along with dark roast coffee and Starbucks Hot Chocolate, various teas and you are welcome to cook. I also have an espresso machine that I will gladly teach you to use. Most of the property is fenced and nice, polite dogs are welcome for a surcharge depending on the size and degree of shedding! :-)
Most people think Jack and I are pretty fun. That said, we can stay out of your way or can be available for recommendations or directions etc. and sometimes a great meal!
Miles is a large, friendly Standard Poodle and a Bentley, a mini dachsund, is a frequent guest. You can bring a dog as long as it's very friendly and not a whole male, though there will be a surcharge for long-term guest dogs. I am happy to dog sit (ask me about my daily rates)... The guest bedroom has a private walk-in shower and access to a private entry if you prefer. There is also a smart TV in this room and a private deck; and, of course, fabulous views!
This place is for relaxing or coming home to after a day of adventure. No parties and no smoking.
I will have to ask long term guests to limit their laundry to 3
loads a week. After that there will be a $3.00 per wash/dry load.
Also, regarding dogs...if you are staying longer than a week, and will be leaving your dog in my care, there will be a charge of $50.00 a week.
And, also, regarding dogs, no whole males.
I'm a people person. Love my family and friends! I also love a good book, a good movie, a good meal, a good or sometimes not so good glass of wine, and a good conversation. I love animals , especially, dogs and horses. My home is filled with art and Asian antiques, well, some...and I love this house and it's surroundings! Hoping to share it with many new friends!
