Dear Linda & Johan,

Thank you so much for such a wonderful valentines and birthday! The room is super cozy, the breakfast was a bomb, and you both are very nice. We appreciate everything you guys have to offer; even the little things like tea in the room. We look forward to seeing you guys again in summer time.

Thank you, Take care

Dear Linda & Johan,

Thanks for making my first trip to Lake Tahoe a memorable one. We loved the breakfasts, they are yummy and with lots of selections. They make us get out of our bed in the morning. The room is very cozy and the fireplace is very much appreciated - keeping us warm and drying my wet clothes. We would definitely love to come back next time. Thanks again for making our stay such an enjoyable one. Hope you continue to be #1 on Trip Advisor! Best wishes,

Dear Johan & Linda,

I am so delighted to have found you.  My stay here has been just perfect.  I love the room, the fireplace and all the thoughtful amenities - water, tissues, etc.  Breakfasts have been delicious, conversation fun.  Your recommendations for where to eat were great. 

It was terrific to be able to watch a movie when the rains came instead of snow!

You are doing a great job here.  Can't wait to spread the word and return!  Thank you!!!

Jan 6-7, 2012 Room 116

The past two days have been extremely cozy and romantic.  Linda and Johan are not only excellent innkeepers but are very special friends.  Their hospitality is unsurpassed.  Heavenly Valley Lodge is well kept, very clean and engulfs you with it's warmth.  It is ideally located near excellent skiing and a very short distance to other locations such as shopping and the casinos.  Each room is unique with it specially built rock fireplaces.  You will have to search long and hard to find accommodations where you will get the personal attention offered by Linda and Johan.  We look forward to returning very soon.

We wish you the best and thank you so much for a wonderful time.

With much affection,

Thank you for your hospitality!  Everything was absolutely amazing.  The rooms are lovely, clean & comfortable.  The fire warmed room is a perfect mountain get-away.  Your location is perfect, close to the gondola and the shuttle is so convenient.  I can't wait to return and to let everyone we know about you!

You really made our new year!!!
