Linda & Johan,

You guys are the best hosts we've been with.  Thank you for the hospitality.  The room was very comfortable.  The fireplace was a great touch.  All the amenities in the room were well thought through.

And the breakfast....yumm!!! What is better than home made food?  Pancakes, eggs, french toast and the spiced apple cider - we enjoyed them all.

It was a great pleasure to get to know you guys.  Here's wishing you guys the best.  Have a joyful and prosperous New Year ahead.

Linda & Johan,

Mahati, Surya and myself truly enjoyed your warm welcome and hospitality.  We had great fun this winter.  This is more like living with family.  Mahati felt like she was staying with grandparents.  Mahati had great fun having her first ski lesson and she will remember forever this stay.  I am sure you will do great with this new endeavor with your warm family like personal touches.

Linda & Johan,

We stayed here in years past and never had such a wonderful time.  The difference is you and your personal touches.  It was a great mis of vacation get away and home atmosphere. 

The days started with a "good morning" and a warm fire and a hot breakfast.

We left our home to spend Christmas away and ended up spending Christmas in your home.  We enjoyed every minute and every bite.  You shared everything with us including your Christmas tree, your friends, and your home.  Happy Hour was fun and full of laughs.

We sincerely appreciate your dog friendly policy.  It was wonderful to be able to have Jack with us.  Thank you for understanding he is not a pet but our little boy, our family member.  We will see you sometime in the future and feel like we have a home in Tahoe.

Kindest Regards,

Caroline & Vic

Heavenly cannot wait to receive us all with warmth, calm, care, good movies and homey food...Herve and I experienced it for two short (too short!) days and will certainly come back with friends or family or to enjoy again a romantic, soothing weekend far away from the big cities.

Thank you Johan and Linda for catering to people's well being in Heavenly!

With lots of love,

Linda & Johan,

You've both provided us with an experience that will build upon a new tradition for us - the perfect get away at Heavenly Valley Lodge.  Your slogan should read, "Let us spoil you!  We're great at it!"  The hospitality, the special touches (e.g. birdhouse w/a porcupine in our room, fudge on the bed, etc), and the welcoming warmth you have will carry you to and through your success.  We look forward to seeing you again soon!

We're so glad your super Lodge showed up on our computer screen! We very much enjoyed our stay here. Thank you for all your friendly advice on ski rental and dining. This was a wonderful goodbye weekend from California and since we didn't get to finish the movie, we have a perfect reason to come back (and of course we should try out ALL the slopes!!)

Thanks once again,

Lindy & Johan,

This has been by far my most relaxing, cozy and enjoyable vacation ever!  I absolutely loved my room, especially the fireplace.  You two thought of everything.  I loved hanging out with you guys in your warm and welcoming Lodge where there was unlimited food and drink.

Thanks so much for driving us around and showing us all the beautiful sites.  You two are the best hosts and I can't wait to tell my family and friends all about your wonderful Lodge.  All your extra goodies and special touches go a long way.

Can't wait to come back.

Linny & Johan,

What a great time!  You two have really outdone yourselves.  The Lodge is absolutely fantastic and the room is charming and "oh so cozy".

It was really fun hanging out with you and your other guests - everyone was very friendly and you could tell they were all enjoying their time here.  I can't imagine how anyone wouldn't.  You guys spoil everyone so much, no one wants to go home.

Can't wait to come back with the family for New Years and many times after that.  There is absolutely nothing that you haven't thought of to make your guests happy!

Love you,

Denice, San Diego, CA

What a wonderful by-chance stay at your lovely, quaint B&B. 

We are so lucky to have found such a warm, inviting and hospitable place to stay.

The fireplaces in the rooms and comfortable beds, along with happy hour in the Lodge was so very delicious to my senses!

I wish you much success in your lovely slice of heaven!

Thank you for a wonderful stay!  It was great to make new fun friends!

Linda & Johan,

What a beautiful time was spent with you and in your absolutely FABULOUS B&B! Actually, I've been several places and in many a "quaint" place, but never one so perfect as yours!

Liz and I truly enjoyed the cozy room and enjoyed how much care you take in making your guests absolutely comfortable. We appreciate everything!  Keep up the good work - we will let everyone we know about your little slice of heaven!

Much love to our new friends!

Our visit here has been amazing.  The best part of the stay is Linda and Johan.  Such great hospitatlity-from the breakfast every morning to the "happy hour" around the fire pit.  Our room was cozy, real cute and so many special features to make you feel at home.  The location was convienent to the Casino and great little local restaurants.  Linda and Johan have made us feel special every day that we have been here.  We are definitely coming back.  I will recommend "Heavenly Valley Lodge" to all my friends.  Thank you so much for all you have done for us.  It was so relaxing.

"Absolutely Perfect!"

Scott and I really enjoyed our stay here with you both. We felt as if we were home. Just a perfect cozy room with everything we needed. We appreciated every detail you have thought of, every room has it's own special details, designed with love!! Sitting by the fire trying to capture (on film) Mr. Longtail and his little lady friend (the resident squirrels) was one of my favorite parts of our stay.

Thank you again for all you do! We wish you both all the blessings in this adventure. Can't wait to come back.

Johan and Linda,

We have been so blown away with our visit here.  Your grounds are unbelievable!  The rooms are comfortable and unique - each one has such a fun personality!  We have had such a great time getting to know you two!  It truly feels like a home away from home!  We look forward to many more trips to your Inn!  We will be bringing the kids out soon for some winter fun!

Best wishes!

Wow!  We were just passing through and there was no way we could stay for just one day...we had to stay for two and would like to stay a week or more.  Linda and Johan, your hospitality is AMAZING, rare, and very appreciated.  Danielle and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will be coming back every chance we get.  We wish you both nothing but the best in this first season of many more to come.

10/9/11 - Room 116 for 10 Year Anniversary

Can we just say "Home away from home!"  We are so blessed that we spent our 10 year anniversary at the Heavenly Valley Lodge.  You and Johan have been amazing hosts.  Thank you for the warm welcoming Korbel Champagne, dinner, breakfast, the list goes on.  We so enjoyed sitting around the fire pit drinking wine and laughing our butts off.  You both have a warm and charming Lodge.  We will be back maybe with the kids next time.

We love you both,

Linda and Johan,

I cannot tell you how wonderful the Heavenly Valley Lodge is.  The grounds are beautiful.  You both are such gracious hosts and just a ton of fun!  It was so enjoyable sitting outside at the fire pit having wine and lots of laughs with you both and the other guests.

I will be back many times.  Next visit, I will bring my husband!

I wish you both the best and I'll see you soon!!
