"Russel Valley Retreat" looks out over a pristine valley, with a Sierra Mountain Range backdrop. The valley is famous for the emigrant trail, the cabin was once owned by a rock climbing legend, but the true magic of this special retreat lies within the ever-changing meadow, the activities of countless bird species, nightly frog chorus, and expansive, endless starry skies.
Hike, bike, ski, horseback ride, fish, explore, relax, and recharge all within a short distance of beautiful Lake Tahoe.

We loved having you and your sweet dog, sorry Kobe (the co-hosting cat) did not make it to the cabin while you were visiting...he was house bound nestled in his bed all weekend with the cold snap we had while you were visiting. Hope to see you again!
