Planning Your Summer Visit With Us…
We look forward to work together to accomodate you and your family to a well deserved vacation away from home. We hope soon there will be testing and vaccines available and this virus will see it's peak soon. Please be mindful of spreading the virus even though you do not have symptoms. A surge in cases means we will have to shut down again. Most importantly we need to keep our elderly, compromised and caregivers safe. Our lives will be normal again and we hope the best for all our guests and friends.
We can travel freely, here are some reasons to feel more comfortable:
- Get out of the city, come to the mountains, work and play remotely far away from a dense population.
- Take advantage of our low season and midweek family rates.
- Mountain resorts are a distributed form of vacation even when the resorts are closed.
- Terrain, trails/hiking, and homes are all dispersed.
- Sharing time and space with a close group of friends and family is less risky than large events or traveling to areas with many tourists in a tight space.
- Your out of school kids need activity and a change of scenary where they can take in the great outdoors this summer.
- We are NOT a hotel, even our condominium properties are larger with less units per building.
- We are most visited by driving, versus flight or bus. Thus, allowing each group to gauge their own risk.
- Each property is cleaned right after each rental. Linens are professionally washed. Common touch points and surfaces are actively disinfected.
- Previous coronavirus studies and preliminary 2020 information show that the virus persists for a few hours or up to several days. This is good for you, as vacation rentals are often several days to a week between turnover. New data will be ascertained.
- What can you do to help yourself and others around you?
- Stay home if you have a fever, cough, shortness of breath or any other cold or flu-like symptom.
- Stay home if you are over 65 years old, or those with weakened immune systems or chronic illness like lung disease, heart disease, diabetes or cancer.
- Washing your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water aren’t available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoiding close contact with anyone. Maintain distance of at least 6 feet.
- Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces. Wipe down hard surfaces periodically.
- Covering your mouth and nose with a tissue or your elbow when you cough or sneeze.
- Please remember that masks are required when in public. It's only common sense if we want the ability to travel.

IMPORTANT FOR ALL OF US - NOVEMBER 3RD, 2020 GENERAL ELECTION
Election Division contact: (775) 684-5705, [email protected]
Douglas County residents can register and confirm their voting status here:
Questions? Contact Kathy Lewis, Clerk/Treasurer by email at [email protected]
All active registered voters in Nevada will be sent a blank ballot in the mail for the general election. This means voters do not need to request an absentee ballot for the general election if they want to vote by mail.
All voters will have the option of voting in person, either during early voting or on Election Day, if they choose not to vote by mail. Early voting begins on Saturday, October 17 and runs through Friday, October 30. Voters who wish to vote in person are highly encouraged to vote early.
Ballots will be mailed to the voter registration mailing address on file with your county election office and cannot be forwarded by the Post Office. This means it is extremely important that your voter registration mailing address be current. All voters, especially voters who have recently moved or have not voted in a while, are highly encouraged to check their voter registration status well in advance of Election Day. To check your voter registration status, visit www.RegisterToVoteNV.gov and click on "View My Existing Voter Registration." If you need to register to vote or make a change to your voter registration information, you can also do so online at www.RegisterToVoteNV.gov.
Ballots can be voted and returned immediately once they are received. You do not have to wait until a certain date closer to Election Day to vote your mail ballot. Voters have two options to return a mail ballot:
Ballots can be returned by mail using the provided postage prepaid ballot return envelope. In order to be counted, ballots returned by mail must be postmarked no later than November 3. Ballots that are given to a mail carrier or deposited in a Post Office receptacle prior to the last posted pickup time will have their ballot postmarked that same day.
Ballots can be returned in person at a ballot drop-off location. Ballots returned at a drop-off location must be dropped off prior to 7 p.m on Nov. 3. All counties will have at least one ballot drop-off location. A list of all ballot drop-off locations will be included on this webpage once election plans are finalized by the counties.
