Perfect Thanksgiving in the SNOW!
Previous reviews of this property convinced me to book this wonderful place for our annual Thanksgiving get-away and I'm glad I did. My wife and I were joined by my daughter, her husband and two late-teen sons and another adult grandson. Everyone loved their beds, the kitchen was fully stocked with every imaginable utensil and lots of spices, etc. The living room was both large and cozy, which seems like a contradiction but it was perfect for all of us when we wanted to watch a movie or football game together. The game room was used a lot, playing ping pong and air hockey and even though it was unseasonably cold with tons of snow outside, the propane heater did a great job of keeping us comfortable.
When we arrived, I had to walk down the driveway in 1 to 2 feet of snow because the gate appeared to be locked with a padlock for which I didn't have a combination. I trudged down the hill, sometimes up to my upper thighs in snow, heading to the house, found the lock box, got the key and opened the door....no electricity! The recent storm had caused a power outage. I called Lois and found out that the gate wasn't really locked and that the chain/lock was just draped across the metal post, appearing to be locked. She encouraged me to open the gate and drive down the snow-covered driveway in my GMC 4X4 truck, since it was new snow and no ice involved. My wife and 2 of our grandsons got out and walked down while I drove down, no problem. Although getting out 3 days later was not quite as easy!! (another story, but again, this was an anomaly weather-wise and we had fun shoveling snow).
Well, after contacting PG&E, we were told that they hoped to have the power restored within a few hours and it did come on about 2 hours after we arrived. No problems after that.
My daughter, her husband and other son arrived later in the evening with their Jeep, which handled the driveway with no problems. After that, just lots of fun, games, movies, etc. A truly wonderful Thanksgiving. Lois and her secretary were very helpful when we had to call a couple times with questions, like where were the snow shovels. Snow of any kind, at this elevation and this early in the season is very rare, much less the deluge that the storm brought to the entire Sierra range. So, while it was unexpected and challenging, I loved the adventure and we had a terrific White Thanksgiving!
GREAT - needs more lighting for night check-ins
This place is AMAZING once you get in. We got there after sundown and I almost broke a leg running to each door trying to find the lock box for key to the house. Once in, we actually tripped the alarm because there was not a really clear indication for location of alarm panel....which first led us to the panel for the light and fan of downstairs living room and then to the thermostat and FINALLY to the alarm panel at the other end of the house. ALL-IN-ALL, it was a great stay. Super clean. Bring all extras for bare essentials. It is a smaller town outside of a small town. Next closest place for 1st world human existence is Angel's Camp (abount 40 minutes away) if roads are not closed due to construction/inclement weather. Pot belly stove never worked.
