About the innkeepers

Paul was born in England and emigrated with his family to California at an early age. Mindy was born in Southern California. We both spent time in the Truckee-Tahoe areas in our younger years. Following teaching careers in Las Vegas, the opportunity of owning a B & B and returning to the forest with year round activities was a life long dream that came true in 2012. Stay with us and you will see our passion for the area and we will provide a lifetime memory.
