    We have a great house and lots of lands! About 200 years ago this area used to be a forest, unfortunately, because of a clear-cut, the forest is gone. Now we try to bring it back!
    We will host you for the night in exchange for few hours of help (We can decide together, how much and which kind, but mostly gardening- FUN :))
    It is the best for travelers and backpackers who don't want to spend money on a hotel but want to enjoy beautiful Lake Tahoe :)

    Please, No Drugs, No Alcohol, and No weapons are allowed on your property.
    We love dogs, but we need to know the kind and size and then we can decide.
