General overview

Beautiful, large family home in a country setting at the base of the Sierra Nevada mountains in the American West. We are located in Northern Nevada 20 minutes from Lake Tahoe, Reno or the old west town of Virginia City with numerous summer and winter activities from hiking, skiing and golf to casino shows, restaurants and shopping. Our home is large, comfortable and bright with modern conveniences and beautiful grounds and can easily accommodate 8 guests. There are two master bedroom suites with attached bathrooms, one upstairs and one downstairs, two additional bedrooms share a bathroom upstairs. A sunny kitchen, dining area, two living room/family room/entertainment areas and small parlor give plenty of space for gathering or a quiet read. The upstairs has a theater room where you can watch movies on the big screen. We also have a large patio (with hot tub), vegetable garden, and yard with beautiful Sierra Nevada mountain views. We ask that you share our home with our lazy old cat who will be easy to have around. An exchange car is available. This is our primary residence so simultaneous exchange is preferred. You will find desert sunsets, mountain lakes, wild horses and abundant sunshine year round. We are located close to the California state line and are in a perfect area to explore Nevada and California. San Francisco is an easy 4 hour drive, California wine country is 1.5 hours, Yosemite National Park is 4 hours and there are many quaint gold-rush towns, hot springs, lakes, rivers, and ghost towns within a 2 hour drive. Think wide open spaces when you come here! Nevada is an undiscovered gem with dramatic landscapes, uncrowded and with beautiful scenery and weather, and incredible recreation and touring opportunities. This is the heart of the Wild West, the TV show "Bonanza" was set here, John Wayne filmed his last movie in Carson City and there is a lot of Native American culture in this area. Carson City is the capital of Nevada, the State museum is here as well as the recently restored V&T Railroad which runs from Carson City to Virginia City, the site of the "Mother Lode" of silver and gold mining.

Notes

We have a cleaning service and yard care service for your convenience. We have completed many exchanges on other sites, here are some of the reviews we have received: 2018 exchange with the Netherlands: "We had a great time at Amy and Steve’s house in Carson City! The house is spacious and convenient, the garden is beautiful and a nice place to be, also during the hot days! We went to Lake Tahoe several times, a most beautiful lake with fresh and clean water and beautiful beaches. We visited Virginia City, South Lake Tahoe and Eagle Lake and we went to Kings Canyon NP and Sequoia NP (Yosemite was closed because of a big fire). The area is beautiful, the weather is good! Amy and Steve are very friendly people, although we never met them, the contact was very nice, relaxed! Amy and Steve: we would have loved to meet you!" 2012 Exchange with Lyon, France: "We had a wonderfull time at Amy and Steve s house, very quiet, very comfortable, it was good to live in and outside is fantastic. We recommand the area of Lake Tahoe for wonderfull beaches, balads in trails around the lake, padle, there is so many activities to practise around the lake. We went to Yosemite for a few days, and Reno is interested also.. We stayed at San Francisco wich is a great place to visit. Amy and Steve took really good care of my house and cat, they are very nice and we keep contact and hope to see them one day. If you stay at their house you will have fantastic holidays." 2010 Exchange with Barcelona: "Our family has spent a wonderful vacation in Carson City (Nevada), we came from Spain and we have found a wonderful and amazing site, there are a lot of things to do: ride horses having an authentic cowboy as a teacher and enjoying with Carson Valley, to go to Tahoe Lake for swimming, parasailing, trail,.... We have also visit Virginia City and its old mines, and in the travel we saw wild horses ... it was so nice! And we found a very comfortable and nice home, Davey home. It has been our first swap and Davey family has made us everything easy, we have got a new family in USA. Thanks a lot for everything."
